It's so you can get better weather with all them games in mid-May in the north. 

Aha!

you are trading the chance that the ball is only a high chopper or slow roller against the OPB of the next hitter. I don't like it either. 

I'm waiting to hear Shelton's opinion.

These guys (RR, Goodrum, Lugo)  could all play short, but none of them well.

What the **** is up with Ronny Rodriguez?

We need to trade him while he’s hot so we can get three guys who suck in return.  That’s how rebuilding works. If you roll the dice as many times as possible you become the Astros.  It’s indisputable science.

Thanks for the response! 🙂

But how many high choppers or slow rollers are there on average during a game? None? One?

So the strategy for the "contact play" is based on the batter to do exactly that right at that specific moment.

You have better odds of the Lions winning the Super Bowl. 😂

Well - not really but you get my drift.

Well, Turnbull's ERA is in good shape.

clearly they have numbers to support what they are doing, but I still wonder if it captures everything - like just the extra pressure of making the pitcher face another batter with a guy on 3rd.

Lions fans, sometime in the early 1960s.

Ha! Exactly!

More like Lions fans sometime in August of 1958 when the World Champion Lions lost to a college team. Perhaps the greatest example of foreshadowing ever.

If Turnbull can hang in there through 6 w/o allowing more than two additional earned runs it’s a quality start.

I’m just hoping nobody wheeled grandpa out of hospice care to take him to his last game at Comerica today.

Well Jack, I count seven games from 1994 where you threw under 100 pitches, all starts.. I understand the point being made, but the exaggeration is ridiculous. 

A dozen in 1993. 

I know, I'm a lot of fun at parties.

Not only that, but the gradual acceptance of Ks with the knowledge swinging hard is overall better than making weak contact likely means there is less weak contact now than was the case say 30 years ago.

I have no data to back up my point, just a guess on my part

That's the way it should be.
