|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Rumours have it, Seattle will fire manager Lloyd McCledon. |
And Rogers Centre's roof is closed for game 2.
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Wow, come back from a quick meeting and it's 3-3. Sheesh!!|
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: http://www.networkworld.com/article...|
"That throw by Puig was 2KPH slower than before he had the hammie injury!"
|Oct-09-15|| ||Jim Bartle: That BAM system is valuable for teams, I can see that. But it's way too much for me as a casual fan. Those StatCast videos on mlb.com are too much information.|
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Seattle's manager Lloyd McCledon is out. Which means as of right now, MLB have zero black (head) managers.|
Which would match the same number as NHL, Major League Lacrosse, NASCAR, NHRA, and Lingerie Football League.
|Oct-09-15|| ||Penguincw: Close game in Toronto, 4-4 in the 8th!|
|Oct-09-15|| ||Jim Bartle: Jays would be heading home with a win if they hadn't totally butchered the first inning in the field.|
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Cueto getting roughed up, 3 runs already. Will Astros knock out KC in Houston in two days?|
Well, they'd have to win today, first.
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Well, for the 2 AL series, tomorrow is off day, so guess every (relieve) pitcher is on-call. |
Not sure if TEX/TOR game 3 pitchers are still close by the ball park. Else they can go in and throw 4, 5, 6 innings. =)
|Oct-09-15|| ||Penguincw: ****, Rangers lead 5-4 in the 14th inning.
I have to say though, I just can't seem to remember the last time the Jays lost a 14+ inning game (I'm pretty sure it's happened, it just doesn't come to me).
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Rangers added another run, now 6-4. What's TOR's record when the roof's closed?|
|Oct-09-15|| ||Penguincw: Double correction:
Firstly, I'm watching on GameDay, and I thought the inning was over, but it was just a pitcher change.
Regarding 14+ innings, it's happened 3 times, but they were all night games in California, so I wasn't awake to witness it. :)
< WannaBe: What's TOR's record when the roof's closed? >
(just in general) May I ask why <MLB> gets to decide if the roof is closed or not?
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Here's MLB's rules on retractable roof:
Quiz before KC/HOU game 3. On another interesting thought, if HOU gets to TOR, it would be 2 teams with retractable roof stadium.
So, have two teams with retractable roof stadiums ever faced each other in a play-off series?
|Oct-09-15|| ||Penguincw: Ouch, Jays lose 6-4, fall behind 2-0 in the ALDS.
Believe it or not, I predicted the Jays to lose G1, and win G2. Looks like I'm only half-right, in the least desirable way possible.
Time to pull a 2012 SFG.
But regarding the retractable roof: "The decision as to whether a game begins with the roof open or closed rests solely with the home club."
It said home club, not MLB. Why am I hearing that the league gets to decide on opening/closing roofs. And considering the Jays play much better with an open roof, yes it matters.
I seriously doubt the Jays would voluntarily close the roof. I don't think it rained yesterday or today, during the game.
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Apparently regular season and playoffs are apples and oranges:|
and also: http://m.mlb.com/news/article/66258...
<During Games 3 and 4 of the 2005 World Series, the Astros wanted the roof to be closed to help with crowd noise, but MLB stepped in and said the weather was mild enough that the roof should be opened.
The retractable roof at Minute Maid Park takes 13 minutes to open, but MLB rules say the roof can only be opened between innings -- which is less than three minutes. That's a sticking point. Ryan also said the opposing manager would have to agree to opening of the roof.>
Quiz Sunday, before KC/HOU first pitch.
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Great, HOU/KC is now 4-4, maybe they'll play 14 innings, too.|
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Red Birds gotten on the board! 1-0|
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Game 3 starter for TEX, Martin Perez, 3-6 4.46 ERA. Ugh!|
Cheapest tix is SRO, $80
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Red Birds 2-0, solo HR by Pham!|
|Oct-09-15|| ||WannaBe: Oopsie, 4-0 now...|
|Oct-10-15|| ||Penguincw: Dodgers trail 3-0. Yeah, unfortunately, Kershaw chokes in the postseason. Of course, he's not pitching too badly today, as the Dodgers bats are being quieted. Still, if the Dodgers have 2 strong pitchers that can go 4/7 games, the Mets can probably go 6/7 with their 3.|
|Oct-10-15|| ||Jim Bartle: <Still, if the Dodgers have 2 strong pitchers that can go 4/7 games, the Mets can probably go 6/7 with their 3.>|
But it's best of five, isn't it?
|Oct-10-15|| ||Phony Benoni: When a team loses 3-1, I find it hard to say the pitcher choked.|
|Oct-10-15|| ||Jim Bartle: On ESPN: "LA/Mets was the first time two pitchers struck out more than 10 batters in a postseason game."|
Actually that's an interesting stat, not tortured to fit into "first ever." But notice it's "more than ten," not just "ten." So obviously two pitchers had struck out 10 each before, just not 11.
|Oct-10-15|| ||WannaBe: From ESPN:
<Clayton Kershaw has lost 5 consecutive postseason starts, following only Randy Johnson (7) & David Price (6) for most in postseason history.>
Going to LA for the 3-day weekend, so I may not be posting any more/less than usual. =)
