Lol.  Fans will start to show, just look at the 90s, nobody showed up like Indians fans.
There was 35K on Friday (which the Indians also won on the final at-bat...3 walk-offs in 1 series!) and I'm sure sell-outs will return to CLE.

It will just take time to undo 12 years of horrible Dolan mismanagement and fan disloyalty when they bought the team from Jacobs, slashed payrolls, and traded away fan favorite after fan favorite and cy young after cy young winnrer.

It is starting to feel like '95, but our hitting then was just so superior to what it is now.
That 95 lineup had no holes.

Welcome to playoff Swisher. That's why he went to CLE, figured he's be able to put up his usual regular season numbers and not be exposed in the playoffs. I guess that didn't work out

I don't disagree with your point, but where are you getting those numbers? Is 2.4 supposed to be Swisher's regular season WAR (it was actually 3.8 )? And I know this was Dan's number, but Swisher was paid $11m this year (I think $14mis the average over the life of the contract), so by Keri's measure (other's have a lower number for this season, closer to $5m) Swisher was actually worth more than $20m this season.

Bottom line, it's hard to argue that Swisher is overpaid. You probably don't make the playoffs if you throw a scrub off the bench in there instead of him. He was probably your 3rd most productive position player. The other 2 are still on their rookie contracts, so of course they provide better value, but you can't build a contender solely out of players still on their base contracts (at least not with Cleveland's payroll).

A bigger concern is that he's owed $15m in each of the next 3 years, and he's definitely on the decline.

3.8 was last year with the Yankees. 2.4 this year

ETA baseball reference has him rated much higher this year
http://m.bbref.com/m?p=XXplayersXXsXXswishni01-bat.shtml&t=all_value_batting


And if by in decline you mean slightly lucky last year and slightly unlucky this year then yes.
His BABIP went down 36 points from last year to this. And his batting average? Down 26 points.
That's the difference between a good season and a bad. And next year he'll probably be somewhere in between.
He hit the same number of home runs. Same walk rate and strikeout rate. The only difference in his stats is that number

I just remembered that there are at least 4-5 versions of WAR out there (see here (http://www.baseball-reference.com/about/war_explained_comparison.shtml) for a comparison). Baseball Reference's, which is what ESPN uses, had him at 3.8 this year. It'd be hard to tell, but based on the numbers I'm pretty sure Keri's $6m per 1.0 WAR was not based off of the Fan Graphs version. You'd have to have that $ amount calculated for the same WAR version you're using to come up with the true dollar value for any specific version of WAR. Fan Graphs is actually the only one that does the whole dollar value calculation explicitly, and they have him at $12.1m for 2013.

As far as Swisher's decline, right off the bat, you can see in his Fan Graphs page you already linked to that his 2.4 was well below his 4 year NYY average (3.6), and even below his career average (3.0). Yet his BABIP was just 0.03 lower than his career average, so it's hard to argue that he was unluckier this year than throughout his career on average. And in terms of dollar value, his $12.1m this year is above the $11m, he was paid this year, but well below the $15m he'll be paid the next few years.

That's some fancy math comparing his war to his Yankees years and then his BAPIP to his career average. Try comparing both to his Yankee years and you'll see that's where the whole decline came from. His peripherals are all the same. His line drive rate slightly up, pop up rate slightly down. Only difference between Yankees years and last year was BAPIP.

I'll make it easy for you - let's do career first. His career WAR is 27.7 over 10 years. That includes his first season in which he barely played at all and produced a WAR of 0. If you ignore that year his average WAR is over 3. So his WAR in 2013 was 20% below his career average while his BABIP was basically 1% below his career average - a negligible difference.

Now if you'd like to argue that the Yankee years are a better point of comparison because they're more recent, we can do that to. Using the number of ground balls and fly balls in each of his Yankee years (it's all on his Fan Graphs page) you can weight the BABIP listed to get his true BABIP for those 4 years. It comes out to .307, which means his BABIP was less than 10% worse this year than in his Yankee years. His Yankee WAR average was 3.6, which means his 2.4 WAR this year was more than 30% worse than in his Yankee years. You're going to have a hard time convincing anyone that his drop in overall production is due to bad luck on BIP.

We can sit here and break down the components from today until tomorrow, but you're going to find that this season was definitely a decline from both recent years and career averages, much more than any luck factors can explain. If you want to argue that it's one bad season and it doesn't constitute a decline, that's fine - though I don't buy it, especially at this later stage in his career.

Correct. Yankee years are a better comparison.
And you are calculating 10% worse BAPIP as if that directly correlates to WAR. But batting average decline of 10% would not imply a ten percent decline in war as the replacement player does not have a 0% batting average (it's actually probably around .250). As such a ten predawn decline in batting average would directly corelate to a thirty percent decline in war. Again, all his peripherals are exactly identical if not slightly better from the Yankee years

This is so patently false as to be absurd. First of all, batting is only one component of WAR, fielding and defense (positionally adjusted) being the other 2. Second of all, within the batting component, BABIP is only even partially relevant to some of it's sub-components (around 80%), not the parts that don't involve a BIP. And third of all, BABIP is helpful for analyzing BA because it's essentially isolating the portion that the batter and pitcher have the least control over. But WAR (even just the batting portion) differentiates between types of hits because of the differing roles they play in creating runs.

Which peripherals are you referring to? All of his numbers are either equal to or below his Yankee years, not above.

I'm saying everything else being equal, a small (30 point) drop in BAPIP can cause a big drop in WAR
K rate, walk rate, line drive rate (way up), pop up rate (way down).
The one thing that was down was his home run rate.

Unfortunately, I've already spent enough time on this at work that I should be refunding some pay to my employer (they pay me to do math all day, just not baseball math ;D), but suffice it to say that if you had all the necessary inputs, and you substituted enough singles for outs to bring Swisher's Yankee years BABIP (which by the way is high enough to be a bad point of comparison) down to his 2013 mark, you still wouldn't end up as low as 2.4.

And just as an aside, infield hit rate is actually much less attributable to luck than other types of balls in play.

Big deal, neither Dodger Stadium nor Turner Field was at 100% or better (based on the metric they, use playoff sellouts are often higher than 100% due to seating added for the postseason) in their series for any of the games, while every other game this postseason was over 100% (except at the Trop). And if you want to talk attendance you're not exactly coming from a position of strength - Progressive Field was a league low 45.3% full this season.

Blah, blah, blah. A team should be able to sell out their playoff games, end of story.

As far as the Indians go, they had no problem selling out entire seasons before a game was played when the owners were willing to spend money.  As soon as Dolan came in and decided to slash spending and become the farm system for the Yankees fans also stopped showing up.
2nd half collapses in 2011 and 2012 didn't help the case this year either. 
Nor did the doubling of ticket prices for 2013 though they said they had a 20% rise in ticket revenue over 2012 when attendance was slightly higher so maybe they're not as dumb as they look.

At any rate I've never seen a crowd anywhere as worked up and passionate as the WC crowd here last week.  Shame it had to end the way it did.

Like I said it's not about attendance.  The Mets pulled in 26K a game by giving away half their seats every day.
Even on opening day they gave away thousands of comps.

The Indians strategy this year was to charge a much higher price point even though the numbers would be lower.  An upper reserved seat that was $7 last year went up to $25.  Frankly I'm surprised they got as many people as it is.

It seems to me that it's more of a generational issue. Life had a slower pace back then, and baseball suited that well, so baseball was king. They can add things like a pitch clock and other tweaks to speed up the game, but at it's core baseball is just slower than the other major sports. And that may not be a good fit with the million mile an hour pace of people's lives today.

Absolutely, they need to implement whatever rules they can come up with to help speed up the game (starting with a pitch clock of some sort). But it won't change the nature of the game, which lends itself to large amounts of dead time. If you edited the video of a full length game into just the balls put into play, it would be a very short video indeed. The game progresses due to outs, not to a game clock (the way all the other major sports work), and most outs aren't very exciting.
Title: Re: MLB 2013
Post by: Dan on October 13, 2013, 11:22:04 AM
Bottom line is games used to be under 2 hours.
Then they bloated to 2.5 hours.
Now the average is 3 hours with games like last night with just 1 run taking 4 hours.

Next year will be even worse thanks to challenges.

MLB Rule 8.04 would solve most problems:

When the bases are unoccupied, the pitcher shall deliver the ball to the batter within 12 seconds after he receives the ball. Each time the pitcher delays the game by violating this rule, the umpire shall call "Ball." The 12-second timing starts when the pitcher is in possession of the ball and the batter is in the box, alert to the pitcher. The timing stops when the pitcher releases the ball.

Between that, speeding up breaks between innings, limiting pitching mound conferences, and speeding up pitching changes would go a long way.

I couldn't find hard numbers on the NFL, just a few articles from the last few years making the essential point, which is that NFL games are getting longer and longer. Yet that doesn't seem to be hurting them at all. It's not just the length of the game overall, it's also the pace. The pitch clock helps for that too, but I still don't think it can overcome the core differences in the way baseball and other sports are played.

"Obstruction is the act of a fielder who, while not in possession of the ball and not in the act of fielding the ball, impedes the progress of any runner.

"Rule 2.00 (Obstruction) Comment: ... After a fielder has made an attempt to field a ball and missed, he can no longer be in the act of fielding the ball. For example, an infielder dives at a ground ball and the ball passes him and he continues to lie on the ground and delays the progress of the runner, he very likely has obstructed the runner."



Looked like obstruction to me whether it was inadvertent or not.

For once Jim Joyce got the call right.

Bottom line, it's hard to argue that Swisher is overpaid. You probably don't make the playoffs if you throw a scrub off the bench in there instead of him. He was probably your 3rd most productive position player. The other 2 are still on their rookie contracts, so of course they provide better value, but you can't build a contender solely out of players still on their base contracts (at least not with Cleveland's payroll).
Great play by Swisher just now.  3 strikeouts for the day and then he was just amazing warming the bench in the bottom of the 9th while Dickerson pinch-hit for him and set up a game tying 2 run HR.

At least we're not overpaying for that bench-warming.

I guess you forgot the rest of what I wrote at the end of last year.
A bigger concern is that he's owed $15m in each of the next 3 years, and he's definitely on the decline.
My point then was that his performance in last year's regular season was easily worth his salary for that year, but the rest of the contract would be much harder for him to live up to. And here we are, a year later, with his salary being higher than the first year of the deal and his production declining precipitously.

We all know bumgarner is the MVP is the giants win, but who is the MVP if the royals win? Any chance bumgarner wins it anyways? If he pitches a couple of good innings tomorrow in a losing cause you'd have to think there's a chance

I'm well aware of the rules, and was not in any way stating an opposing view. However, once the SP didn't go 5 it's at the discretion of the official scorer, who could have easily applied the standard of the pitcher who last pitched prior to the half-inning when the winning team took the lead for the last time. Hence it being noteworthy for the official scorer to announce, before the game is even over, that Bumgarner was getting the win if they closed it out.
so are they a dynasty or not?
Absolutely not.

First of all, you're not a dynasty if you completely miss the playoffs every other year. People talk about whether the Spurs are a dynasty despite never winning back-to-back (and to me they're 100% a dynasty), but at least they made the playoffs every year in between.

And second of all, they were never consider the best team/favorite to win it during any of the years they won.

Don't be ridiculous, the point is they weren't good the other years.

The Spurs finished 5th, 1st, 4th, 1st, 2nd, 1st, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 7th, 1st, 1st, 2nd, and 1st in the Western Conference during the Tim Duncan era. If this were baseball, they'd have made the 15 of the 17 years (16 if you count the 5th place finish which is now a playoff berth in the MLB). Even if they hadn't won any championships it would have been a tremendous accomplishment, like the Braves run of division titles.

The Giants by contrast finished 14th, 12th, 5th, 2nd, 6th, 3rd, 9th, and 5th in the NL during the Bruce Bochy era. That means that even in basketball, they would have missed the playoffs almost half of the time. They never held the regular season league title, and only won their division in the other 2 championship years.

they have a right fielder who will get hurt and has been playing in coors the past few years
the center fielder can field better than any, but needs to prove he can hit, and lead off
the left fielder, i may be the only person who likes him

I hate that logic, that in 7 years he'll remember being sent down to the minors for 9 games (to learn how to play outfield in real games).

I'm hoping to check off 5 stadiums that I've never been to this year.  I try to go when the Yankees are in town but it's not a limiting factor.  CLE, DET, PIT, CIN, PHI, WAS, TPA, MIA are all prime candidates.

Went to Citizens Bank park.  It was nice.  Food was good, sightlines good.  Liked it better than Yankee stadium (not saying much).

It is not a catch, however, if simultaneously or immediately following his contact with the ball, he collides with a player, or with a wall, or if he falls down, and as a result of such collision or falling, drops the ball.

This is not all that different than deciding between a sure out at first and a non force-out at another base (especially at the plate if we want to line up the situations a little better) - which is to say that it's a gray area and lots of variables can influence the decision.

The ZiPS guy did some analysis on Twitter that suggested that the catch increased the Mets win probability by 5%. He also implies that the count was actually more important than the players.

I feel like there should be a 2-point-conversion style situation chart for this type of thing.

so you would have thought about all that while lining up the ball in foul territory, realizing you were in foul territory, and remembering the obps off greinke when he has guys 0-2. and realizing the DP is also in order

No, the coaches and manger in the dugout should signal to the players what they should be doing.

Yeah on a steal and a bloop hit. That's what happens when you throw 141 post season innings, hard to be perfect. But near impossible to be better than Mo in such a large sample. 0.70era, 0.76 whip.

It was a bunt with a man on first and Rivera threw to second for some unknown reason, and of course overthrew the ball to centerfield.

No it's not, Rivera was consistently good reg season and post season his whole career. Murphy is comparable to Beltran (hit like crazy in playoffs right before he was a free agent).
Rivera blew 2 series.
Which is why it is hard to label best ever. As good as he was, MadBum never blew a series!

My Murphy comment was a joke. It's a phenomenal hot streak, but just that, a streak. Beltran was really, really good. You're under rating him a bit.

Your first comment answers the second - almost two seasons worth of pitching and less than a handful of blown games. Which other closer can come close? They won't even get the chance to pitch that many post season games.

Didn't have to go outside of that series if you wanted to make that point (insert Randy Johnson for MadBum). Kim (D-Backs closer) had already blown/lost 2 games for them, including Schilling's first start - and Rivera was dominating on the other side, with a save and a win in 5 scoreless IP over 3 appearances till that point. D-Backs called on Johnson to get the last 4 outs, and he got it done. Yanks did the same with Rivera, and he did not.
Which is why it is hard to label best ever. As good as he was, MadBum never blew a series!
Having said all that, you're completely insane if you want to use Madison Bumgarner as the counter for calling Rivera the greatest (I assume the original intent was closer) ever.

"He blew 2 series" so you are pinning the 2001 ws on him and what else? 07 ALDS when he gave up that hr to sandy alomar, or 04 red sox? he gave up 1 earned run in all 3 of those series... dude has 96 career post season games and theres less than handful bad memories.

ETA - also, that was my point... bunts, steals, errors, bloops is how he lost that game.

I started this by calling Rivera 'best ever' but included a ? as in there is room for debate. I just picked one name, which doesn't mean that I would pick MadBum over Rivera to close out a series, just that it's debatable. Craziest part is how Mariano did it with one pitch repeated to the most part. The hitters even knew exactly what was coming, and he still had tons of success...

Madson is the guy you're praising out of that stocked pen? How about Davis, who struck out the side in his 1IP, or Young who allowed no hits and just a walk in 3IP?

Either way, I wouldn't say the Royals 'really showed up', as if the Mets didn't. Really showed up should involve much better play than this. Volquez was okay, they couldn't hit at all for much of the game, and that vaunted defense gave up there first run off an error this postseason. But the buzzword on the Royals throughout the postseason has been 'relentless' - is they keep coming at you, all 27 outs (or 42 if that's what it takes). I hadn't followed them much, so it sounded like a bunch of nonsense to me. But this game really highlighted that point. That's how they won it, by attacking every second of the game, whether with their bats, legs or arm.

This should be a really good series. KC's style lends itself to an exciting series, and the Mets are holding up their half in that regard as well.

Right, but he's also the guy who gave up 5ER in 5.1IP, including 4HR, in the risks first 2 series.

The one potential strength the mets had, is just falling apart. The starting pitching.

This offense needs some coordination, and has got to stop making above average pitchers look like cy young candidates.

Really crazy that they didn't score the Duda throw an error. These scorers have in their head that you can't assume the double play and therefore if you ever get 1 out on a play, no error. It's incredibly dumb. A good throw and he's out by at least 5 steps.

I don't think he looks like an idiot. It's still an aggressive hard nosed play. Especially in light of the fact that a year ago they held the runner at 3rd, refusing to dare the defense and look how that paid off for them.

Couldn't agree more... so dumb and arbitrary... there is such a thing as a routine DP, and to not make a routine play, should be an error.

It means he thinks that Starlin will be able to get his 200 hits a year and provide good range (and arm) at 2B. Since they traded a (kinda) starter to get him the Yanks need to now trade for or sign a SP.
Apparently GTR doesn't know of Starlin's ability to come up with a really bad play/error/base running mistake/or not hustle, very often and in important spots, or GTR thinks the Yankees can cure him.

He can hit close to .300 (with his OBP being just a few ticks higher) with around 15 homers, and has range in the field. The problem is that he does that every second year, and that it comes along with many errors and base running mistakes.
My take on it is that it seems that the Yankees won this trade and most experts would say that. However, in two years (assuming Castro has one good year and one bad one) they can all point out how a 3 and change ERA in the AL east translates to an ERA under 3 in the NL. Also, it is almost certain that Zobrist's OBP will be higher than Castro's.

I do. I'm a fantasy-first yankee fan but overall die hard obsessor of the game, specifically the statistical side. They have only used 5 starters all year and each has an ERA under 3 and 4 of them a sub 1 whip, I don't think any aspects of that stat will last, but to be saying that as we pass the 1/3rd mark is incredible. They have a +149 run differential right now, the next best is Boston at +70, so according to pythagorean w/l they have actually underperformed (should be 44-14). Time will tell but relative to their league, I definitely think they are in similar class to the 98 yanks (114) and 01 mariners (116).

Truth is that baseball postseason is to an extent a tossup each year. Goal of current front office is to have sustained success and if you make postseason for 7 years straight then you have better chances to win some tossups. It also helps to have the playoff experience added each year.

I didn't see this Miller thing coming. What is the average CLE fan thinking? Is this a gung-ho champion-driven move that fans want, or are they giving up some amazing prospects for a 2 year lease?

First of all, 2.5 years isn't a lease (except with cars).  Second, if the Indians play the Cubs in the WS, will the world explode? If it doesn't, it's only because the Cavs just won.

I think the average Yankee fan is pretty happy right now. When was the last time anyone said that the Yankees have one of the better farm systems in the majors (before today)? And we still have 16 hours to go!

+1 Not a lease. I think its a great move for both sides. As a Tribe fan I am extremely happy with the move. We can worry about now while the Yankees worry about later.

Baseball playoffs are very unpredictable, but if we're going by team strength you may as well just say that the Red Sox seem waaay better than the Indians. For me, it's very unlikely that I'll go to any playoff game, let alone out of Cleveland, but if there's a game that I would go to it would be game 5 if Cubs play in Cleve.

Hey, I know some ppl broke the bank for those tix  ;), but THERE IS ALMOST NOBODY IN THE WORLD ALIVE who has seen the Cubs win the WS. Nobody under 70 saw them PLAY in a WS, and Cubs fans are among the most loyal in all of sports, nearly selling out every game while they were in last place season after season. A chance to see them win a WS, which I sort of hope happens, would be insane.
Red Sox tix in 2013 were well over $2000 a piece when they had been, and won, the WS 6 years before.

Can't blame the Cubs for increasing payroll being that they knew they were WS contenders. I didn't hold it against the Cavs either. Tribe are certainly underdogs no matter who they play in any round of the playoffs especially if Gomes and Salazar don't come back from injury. BTW Schwarber is injured for the Cubs.

Both games were won with 3 run homer... One difference is 9 innings vs. 11. Other is that any team would pitch their closer in top of the 9th, only real Q is when to pitch closer if you're the road team. Will need to get at least one run in top of inning and have a save situation to win it, so Q is if manager should save the closer for the needed save or risk losing with closer not entering game. SF wouldn't have had the problem as they don't have a dominant closer anyways.

I'm sorry, that's absurd. I was there last night and it was brutal. Last October vs. GOrdon was brutal. But I don't want to hear about 3 blown saves; he blew one. The fact that Murphy can't field and Duda can't throw, both allowing INHERITED RUNNERS TO SCORE doesn't count for Familia. Let's also not forget his two perfect innings in a do-or-die game at Chavez Ravine.

In the end of the day it's about supply and demand.
The Hawks seats 19,700.
The Cubs seat 41,268.

There's a finite number of people that can afford+have the desire to drop 4 figures per seat.
cubs-world-series-ticket-prices-could-be-highest-ever-updated-2016-world-series-odds

Reports indicate (via TicketCity.com) that fans are already bidding as high as $2,000 per ticket for standing room only. An unbelievable $2,000 just to stand at the ball park! If you think thats crazy, how about the price war for box seats near the batter box or Cubs dugout? Those start at a cool $26,000 per ticket. Yes, that is $26,000, not $2,600! If there is a Game 5, those same seats are going for up to $35,000 per ticket. One report from the Chicago Sun-Times indicates that a Cubs ticket has been listed online for one million dollars.

Cheapest on SH for SRO just a few bucks under 2k.

He didn't do well when he had little rest last series. But after today I'd imagine he'll start game 4, I'd be nervous though for him startig 4 and 7.

The last 10 games I walked around the block beforehand, the Indians won. So there's always that as well.

O[ver the past three decades, almost every team that lost Game 1 of the World Series found it had just dug itself a canyon it couldn't climb out of. It's tough to comprehend, but Game 1 losers have lost the past six World Series. And 12 of the past 13. And 17 of the past 19. Not to mention 19 of the past 22 and 24 of the past 28. Going all the way back to 1997, the only two teams to lose Game 1 and survive were the 2009 Yankees and the 2002 Angels. Hard to believe in a best-of-seven series, but 100 percent true.

Then there's the Cubs' own not-so-beautiful history when they lose Game 1 of any postseason series. Tuesday's Game 1 loss in Cleveland marked the 14th time the Cubs had lost the opener of any type of series. They went 1-12 in the previous 13, coming back to win only in the 2015 NLDS against St. Louis.

If we confine this study just to best-of-seven series, it gets even more ominous. The Cubs now have lost Game 1 of a best-of-seven series 10 times. They're 0-9 in the previous nine. Then again, they're the Cubs! So losing series in just about every way possible has been one of their areas of expertise.

Finally, the Cubs have now been shut out three times in this postseason. Of the seven previous teams to get blanked three times or more in the same postseason, just one -- the 1981 Dodgers -- went on to win the World Series. /quote]

That's why they call it believing. Unlike some members will have you believe sports are more fun to follow when you use your heart.

So far he doesn't have clearances to play the field.
Think his DOC is biased?
I'm sure his DOC is biased. But you've got it wrong. He doesn't have clearance to field cause it was never tested. The story (as we know it so far) is that he went for a routine six month checkup on Monday Oct 17th, which was at a point where it was 1-1 in Dodger series. His Doc to everyone's surprise cleared him to hit and run bases. The teams's front office let him take batting practice, cleared him from 60 day DL and sent him to the Arizona Fall League to DH - to a team that happens to be shared with the Indians, btw- for games on Sat night (during the clinching game 6) and Monday afternoon. They didn't get ahead of themselves, just said it's far off, but take one step at a time. The only step to take at that time was hitting and running bases. He obviously is at the point where it's relevant to know if he can be cleared to field. So, it will go back to the doc's and we'll find out prob by some point late on Friday if he's going to field or not.

The non clinching games will drop like a hot potato before the game.
But I would have paid any price for the Cavs game 7. I had the flight booked to SFO for months. Luckily I waited until 2 hours before the game and got great seats for less than the cost of standing room a few days earlier.

And yes, I've had flights booked to LAX and ORD for this Sunday for quite some time as well. 1K FTW.

Only problem is it's a lot harder in this sport to ride one man. Kluber can give you 3 at best, Miller can pitch in 4-5, but you can't just jump on one guy's back the way you do in other sports. Unless Lindor or someone becomes Daniel Murphy...

Warriors built for regular season. Cubs built for the playoffs. Their biggest strength is defense, and smart players who to the most part don't make crucial mistakes. That's why Starlin Castro didn't fit in...

Give me a break. Warriors were up 3-1 in the finals and likely would have won in 5 if green isn't an idiot.

Cubs hitting is very controllable with good pitching. And there pitching isn't dominant (outside of Lester). And they could use another good reliever to be an ideal playoff team

I agree with Dan, Green was there for 6 & 7. If Irving was health in 15 or if Lebron never smashed into the cameraman the Warriors would have never won one championship.
Arrieta, Hendricks and Lackey all could be dominant on any given night, which is as good as anyone can ask for historically except for Schilling and Bumgarner who are consistently dominant. Their hitting is somewhat controllable with great pitching, but whose isn't?

Al Lopez is before my time but people don't salivate over Dusty the way they do Maddon. The guy wins a WC (albeit with a lot of wins) with a super talented nearly injury free team and he cruises to MOY. Dusty is well-liked bc he seems like a good guy but nobody thinks he's Einstein (like they do Maddon).
In Tampa he took a low payroll team to WS. He averaged 100 wins as a Cub manager. He got out-managed last year by TC, and TF has him hanging on the ropes. Dusty may be well liked, and he has a knack for getting the right jobs, but often does things that make him look like a sub par manager.

Many here were claiming CLE was going to win and were afraid to back it up. I said I would talk all bets (no odds). A lot of young grasshoppers here don't understand betting. When you make claims like that you make gentlemen's bets. With gentlemen's bets you take your team straight up or you are already admitting defeat.

The difference is that Trump doesn't have two mini elections that the probability of each one is around 50%, and Trump doesn't have a starting pitcher named Arrieta going in the first mini election. So, odds wise it may be similar, but reality wise, we have a series, or at least in 36 hours from now we will hopefully have a series.

If they don't use Miller, Salazar, Meritt after some hit trouble in the 3rd or 4th you know Tito/Dolan wants the game 7 money, and have way too much trust in Kluber.

All the sports writers are saying the one decision that won last night for the Cubs was putting Chapman in, but it's not true. The one decision that won last night for the Cubs was leaving drone boy in after giving up a homer and a double. And I don't want to hear any of this hindsight garbage every Cleveland fan couldn't believe he left him in during the game. I said take him out and put in miller after the homer, clearly the guy is slumping 3 innings is more than anyone expected from him.
What you are going to hear is this manager is what got you to this position. To second guess him now shows desperation on your part. Real easy for us to make these claims just like that stupid guarantee I gave for last nights game.

I agree that to us outsiders, Cubs fans looked silly all series long. Not only for celebrating last night like they won WS, but for celebrating (behind Fox pre- and post-crew) after GAME FOUR like they won the WS when they really just went down 3-1.

Wow this is really mind blowing!
will the pitch be televised?


and 100% If the Jersey doesn't Say DansDeals on the back that is probably the Biggest Advertisement Lose Opportunity ever.


I think the auction was the craziest thing ever to watch because every time someone bid the time went back up to 5 mins
no one realized this till about 750k then the numbers started to explode!

I saw people bid their whole life savings of SPG points only to get outbid by another.....

I meant to say this before, but pitch is a little overstated. It's "a" ceremonial first pitch, not "the." Game I went to had more than one ceremonial pitch, culminating with the famous person one.

Indeed
@wtam1100: Jim Thome to throw out the first pitch for #WorldSeries Game 7. An @Indians Hall of Famer, Thome played on the '95 & '97 World Series teams.

I wonder if the change in start time for tonight's game will make a difference between seeing just "the first pitch", or also seeing "a first pitch". Theory being that since normal start time is 8:08 being bumped to 8:00 will they start lineups, first pitch, anthem etc. at 7:52 or 7:50. Also, since they've consistently started closer to 8:10, they may up to 7:50. Iyh, they have a few extra seconds in there that don't need to be filled by commercials.

Bunt with 2 srikes? Bunt on a 3-2 pitch. With runner on third less then 2 outs? With 2 strikes? This is Maddons fault for pitching Chappman yo much?
This is what I meant before about Maddon...
I've learned not to Q Maddon since he has his reasons for doing things that are mostly supported by percentages etc. Chapman was obviously talked about, I was hoping they would ask Baez to swing away, and I'm sure ppl can say things about Hendricks, Edwards etc. However, one thing he did not do is have a .197 hitter end a season for him.

The difference is that Trump doesn't have two mini elections that the probability of each one is around 50%, and Trump doesn't have a starting pitcher named Arrieta going in the first mini election. So, odds wise it may be similar, but reality wise, we have a series, or at least in 36 hours from now we will hopefully have a series.
Does anyone know enough about statistics that can answer if there really is a difference between 24% when depending one two outcomes or 24% depending on one outcome?

Great question. It's hard to imagine that there's a difference between 24 and 24. Is there a difference in odds of three tails in a row vs. rolling a one on an eight-sided die. However you break it down, numbers are numbers. They might just "feel" different.

The problem is he had only three starters. You are asking to much for your ace to pitch back to back on three days rest. The same way they asked Chapman to throw another 40-50 pitches.

For sure. Degrom was great last year. Pitched a gem in Game 1 NLDS, and then ran out of gas but managed to limit damage for next 2 starts. THen completely killed in WS start. You just seem to hit a wall when your arm is used to throwing X innings and then it goes above and beyond.

Can it also be that everything is under a microscope. You give up 2 runs in three innings during the year and it is no big deal. Here that happens and the next ball you throw and you are yanked. The game didn't change, just the date it was played on.

Technically he was fresh, having last pitched in game 4. You could probably argue that overall he was getting worn down, this being his 10th appearance this postseason, and 4th in the WS - not to mention that every one of them was 4 outs or more. He faced 100 batters this postseason. Also, the argument about seeing a pitcher a lot absolutely applies.

Tis true, if we had our other 2 starters it would be a very different series. I just feel that if he would of put in Miller, Shaw, Meritt, Salazar, Allen that game would have ended the series.

One thing I noticed about the Cubs already last year is that they seem incredibly white - or at least American. So I took a look at the numbers for this season and postseason combined. 80% of their PA's were taken by American batters, while their American pitchers faced 90% of the batters. Those numbers appear to be way higher than league averages.

Can I get more of the Charlie Sheen story? Like, what does that mean you were in touch with "his people", did you really help him with a hotel reservation, and who from MLB shot it down? Also, does this mean the Indians WANTED Sheen > Thome but were shut down by MLB (do you happen to know this), or not necessarily?

Some relevant info.
Unless I was dreaming, as I turned on ESPN 850 during a carpool this morning, they were discussing how the Indians would have loved to have Sheen throw "a first pitch" but MLB wouldn't allow. IIRC they said that someone tried to buy for him and was told no. Any way to listen to this morning's show?

This comment was surprising.
Perhaps I'm still in a foul mood about it all because of the group of annoying young guys who sat behind us in the back of Section 117 for the deciding game. They were the kind of people for whom it is not enough to cheer for their own team; they must also, at the top of their lungs, belittle the other team, the town and its fans. I finally turned around and said, "Where do you guys think you are? Chicago?"

This just isn't a Cubs thing it is a Chicago thing. Just go to any Blues game and see all the Hawks fans. Some stadiums try and prevent them form getting tickets. Like no out of state online sales and programs like "Stamp out the Red".

There were more CLE than CHI fans overall.
I too found the CHI fans to be very rude, belligerent, and belittling. Not classy as a whole at all.

But yes, Stubhub sales went almost all to CHI fans. Chicago is a more affluent and larger city then CLE and they waited longer for a WS. CLE fans had a hard time not taking that windfall.

I thought it was a lot more fun with so many Cubs fans. Felt like a college football game would I'd imagine with fans from both schools there. Way more intense than a regular home game.

I think in baseball by far the biggest home field advantage is getting the bottom of the 9th, and the top of our order totally failed us there.

For me it comes down to leaving Bauer in game 5 and letting him give up 3 runs after starting off with a Homer and double.

And when our guy went in for a hard line drive to the fences instead of going back.

Either of those and we would have a championship right now.

What were the opening odds again?
Title: Re: MLB
Post by: JTZ on November 08, 2016, 04:47:43 PM
Both CLE teams were underdogs. One of them won in an upset that you should be grateful for.

An "underdog" is a person or group in a competition, usually in sports and creative works, who is popularly expected to lose. The party, team, or individual expected to win is called the favorite or top dog. In the case where an underdog wins, the outcome is an upset. An "underdog bet" is a bet on the underdog or outsider for which the odds are generally higher.

In case you want Webster's definition: a person, team, etc., that is expected to lose a contest or battle
That would be CLE in both scenarios.  :)
