"That's The Way Baseball Go (c) : '22 Opening Day and Beyond"
Thu Apr-07-22 06:38 AM by Dstl1

          

Heeeeeere, we go! Opening Day, folks. Will the new anti-sign stealing technology really speed games up? What's your team looking like? Who's trending? (good or bad). Damn, Max and DeGrom nicked up, already? Bryce looks poised to have another strong year. Fat Albert, Yadi and Waino...one last ride. Should be fun. LEGGO!!!

The turning point for this organization was when they paid Chris Davis over Nelson Cruz when it would have been cheaper to keep Cruz and have money to build the team around Manny.

At first it seemed like the Angels were gonna put together some hot trash around hinm and Trout again, but they shored up the bullpen and now suddenly things feel a lot brighter.

The starting rotation is solid, but if Ohtani can build on last year its solid+. If Thor has any type of come back season (but more importantly can stay healthy) then it becomes a good rotation.

the lineup is still scary if its healthy looking at the first 4
The bottom half has Fletch to solidify it. If Adell can continue on his end of year and spring training its even more dangerous.


----------
Ohtani
Trout
Walsh
Rendon

Stassi
Fletcher
Adell
Duffy
Marsh
-----------
Im not really sure about Ohtani leading off. Does that mean maddon is going in on letting him run the bases freely?

It also means on days hes pitching, he's the first one up.

4 2/3 and 9ks with 1 ER
overall looked good to start the season, he struggled a bit with control and thats what got his pitch count up to 80 -- but didnt really struggle with walks.

The Angels bats (including him) looked like last seasons bats. They couldnt get anything going til it was too late.

Excited to see what Thor has going tonight

After his good spring i didnt expect him to be this bad, but its a long season.

I really dont like him batting leadoff though--- I think the stats and anecdotes show hes best in the two spot.

Joe trying to be too avante garde with his lineup.

Put Fletcher or Tyler Wade (when he plays) in the leadoff spot

Let Ohtani bat 2 and then Trout at 3.

(and as someone mentioned below) he doesnt always get 50/50 calls on either end.

He finally got the bat going over the weekend so hopefully he builds on that. Looks like Mike trout avoided a big injury, but may be out a few games. I still think Ohtani shouldnt be leading off though.

He hit two last night -- so hopefully he's heating.

Im glad theyve moved him out of lead off. Taylor Ward is still playing in God Mode, so with him leading off and Ohtani, Trout, and Rendon behind him -- thats pretty scary. Walsh is playing well and can now hit vs righties and lefties.

His pitching has really picked up two of the last 3 games. he tossed another masterpiece against Boston his last outing

but upon learning of the reasoning, it made sense.

i could totally see freddie on some "that's not how we do things around here", and i can also see acuna answering w/ a "foh".

wonder if that's why acuna cut his hair tho.

ultimately, i think acuna could have done himself a favor and let that shit go w/ freddie. free' responded to it all as professionally as possible, and i'm still sad to see him not there anymore.

glad it didn't get ugly.

but, if the story is true that he physically tried to wipe eye black off of Ronald’s face…that’s grounds for getting hands, lol. I guess BMac commissioned Freddie as Play the Right Way guy, before he left.

After hearing more details from both sides it sounds a lot more like he meant to be saying that with Freeman gone that's the last vestige of the old Atlanta guard gone and it's completely up to the kids to set the clubhouse culture now, which is largely hispanic and Black, so losing Free doesn't really register for him and his happiness/outlook during the season. I don't think he meant to say he hates the guy or anything.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          


I didn't get to watch the Rays because I was out of town. And actually, I won't get to watch them anytime soon because I have YouTubeTV. But that's another issue.

Anyways, the word is that they looked pretty sharp. The local sports writer wrote the following about how they played:

"Still, it was impressive the way the Rays pulled off the sweep. They had no errors, no wild pitches and no passed balls all weekend. They never trailed Their starting pitchers — including veteran Corey Kluber making his Rays debut Sunday — had a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings, and their bullpen was slightly better at 1.28 over 14 innings."

"There were a handful of highlight-worthy defensive plays, including shortstop Wander Franco covering 99 feet on the dead run Sunday to grab a pop fly in short leftfield with the Rays in a shift."

"What stood out, however, was the methodical approach of Rays hitters. They worked deep counts and forced the Orioles into the bullpen earlier than they would have preferred. The Rays also played the kind of small ball that was not often their style last season, driving in four runs with sacrifice flies and two more with groundouts during the three-game series."

And I didn't watch the game, so I'm relying on a 2nd hand account.

But no matter who they played, it sounds like everyone looked sharp. If things looked good at the plate & on the mound, that's a good way to start the season.

On a micro level anyway. On a macro level, everything but the Rockies being tied for the division lead looks totally normal.

Nothing like small sample size observations!

Even more than the NBA, baseball is almost entirely decided by the guys playing the game. This is an epic failure on Dave Roberts’ part

They had to take him out. If it were any other pitcher, sure leave him in.

It’s was totally the right move. Plus he was at his pitch limit, and with him they
have to be exact.

They’re trying to win in October, not make headlines in April. Plus, baseball has simply changed and we’re gonna see more of this.

It seemed like both Roberts and Kershaw agreed it was the right choice. If this is some random pitcher on the Marlins, everyone can get mad. This is a vet who needs to stay healthy to help his team down the stretch.

40. "That’s a natural follow-up performance to a performance "
In response to Reply # 39


          

where he had the biggest night of his career. It means he isn’t juicing.

His body has to recover. The power that is utilized to hit homer runs takes
a lot out of the soft tissues of the body. Muscle fibers have to repair themselves,
so it’s only natural for a player to come out flat the next day.

Now, had he come out the next day knocking the ball all over the park, then that
would be a red flag that he is juicing out his mind.

Bonds would come out blasting the ball in back to back games with
big ass melon head. Juiced!

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Ohtani didn't have it all the way (his slump to start's been a real bummer) but it really felt like the fix was in from behind the plate


There was even that weird bit where Ward/Wade (one of those two I'm pretty sure) had a swing and a miss and reacted like that was the case but the ump kept him at the plate? Just an all around poorly called game for both sides, it felt like nearly every strikeout looking was followed by a screen showing a ball clearly outside the zone, a player shaking their head and the announce booth (Rangers team for me) tip toeing around it.


Hated that game. Was nice to see the Mariners' bats wake up earlier in the day, though. And yes, I'm rooting for the M's and Angels in the same division. Whatever.

But he always seemed creepy to me. I never would have thought he was capable of treating sexual partners this way though.

I wonder if the Dodgers suggested to the league office to suspend Bauer 2 years because that's the length of the remainder of his contract.

Even with the criminal case lacking enough evidence to go to trial, there was no way he could ever pitch for LA. The community would have been in an uproar. So this way, the Dodgers don't have to pay him to sit out for two years.

I'm sure another team will pay him at some point. Because sports are gonna sport (c) Cari Champion. But it won't be in LA.

cannot stand these indoor tax-abatement monstrosities. went for the first time this week -- 74 degrees and overcast; roof is closed because of a 5% chance of rain. loud music bouncing off the enclosed walls like a damn cheap club. even with the roof open, the enclosed concourses has all the character of an outlet mall.

and a perfectly good outdoor stadium 100 yards away.

I was pretty disappointed with the Diamondbacks stadium when I visited a few years back, and this was a big part of it. They closed the roof cause it was too warm, and then the stadium just looked like it could’ve been anywhere. Nothing about it felt special.

Baseball never did shit like this before intentionally! That’s what
your weakest pitcher is for.

I guess this is the new way of surrendering games...throw softball pitches
so batters and pitchers can’t pad their stats. That one guy from
the Twins was out there pitching 40 mph.

But to call Dusty Baker the greatest BM of all time is blasphemous to
black managers who actually won WS titles. Dusty has choked away
a lot of games similar to Doc Rivers, but at least Doc won a title.


Cito Gaston won back to back with the Blue Jays....back to back.

4 American League titles
2 American League Pennants
2 WS titles.

Dusty is ONE of the greats, but some see him as being overrated.

I saw most of it and it was weird I didn’t know for like half the game he had a no no going. He was pitching fine but it wasn’t a dominating performance if that makes sense.

He had 2 Ks- it’s one of a handful of no hitters with 2ks or less.

Meanwhile the angels steamrolled Cluber for 8 runs in 2 innings
