They're walking Loney????
9:42
What am I missing?
Sam
9:42
I get that the pitcher is next, but walking Loney still feels like a waste of an easy out
Dave Cameron
9:42
Yeah. Take the out, get Thor out next inning too.
John
9:42
Oh God please a pitcher hit, murder even year bullshit with a rusty hammer
Helloball
9:42
Thor can probably hit better than Loney.
august fagerstrom
9:42
Really? I'd think even with Thor being a good-hitting-pitcher that the difference would be large enough to be worth it
Dave Cameron
9:43
Loney's better, but not enough to give up the out.
august fagerstrom
9:43
great note by Buster
Walrusman
9:43
Pitcher on deck. Think a study on FG indicated pitcher next was only time IBB made sense.
august fagerstrom
9:43
does he have like a buzzer or something where when he has a great fun fact he can just chime in?
Dave Cameron
9:43
That study wasn't when ace lefty was facing replacement level lefty hitter.
9:44
This bar has just gone pro-Giants with some newcomers.
Perry
9:44
What about ace left facing lefty-hitting pitcher with a lower wRC+ than the replacement level lefty hitter?

wellllp
Dave Cameron

Obviously you'd rather face Thor than Loney if all things are equal. But if you don't IBB, you get to face both.
It's not one or the other. It's two outs or one.

James Loney vs. LHP, 2016: .218 OBP
Madison Bumgarner vs. LHB, 2016: .218 OBP
august fagerstrom
9:45
why do all these numbers keep coming up the same
Dave Cameron
9:46
Single season platoon splits aren't what you want to use, but yeah, Loney against a great LHP is a terrible matchup.
Nick
9:46
Everyone should get Sling.
Dave Cameron
9:46
I think August is getting tired of his.
august fagerstrom
9:46
as someone with his arm in a sling for the last two weeks and also the next four, I strongly disagree
Dave Cameron

Trivia time(is this allowed?): Why are the Mets colors blue and orange?
august fagerstrom
9:47

Nick
9:47
Because seven ate nine?
The Hamburglar
9:47
Dodger blue, giant orange
august fagerstrom
9:47

Spry
9:47
Somebody decided they liked the colors
august fagerstrom
9:47

Paul
9:48
A baseball team with Purple colors is overdue, right? Esp. since D-Backs abandoned it?
august fagerstrom
9:48

Adam
9:49

Jack
9:49
I'm suprised that there is only on team with Green colors
august fagerstrom
