yes! this should've been my advice

Wonder how many more pitches Bumgarner would be allowed to throw than Thor tonight? I'd bet it's at least 30.

recliner is somehow way more comfortable than bed

Considering the Giants bullpen I wouldn't take BumBum out before the 15th

What would you guess the pitch limits are? 120 for syndergaard and 150 for madbum?
Dave Cameron
8:54
110/140
Or maybe 115/145.
Scott
8:54
Why 30 pitches higher for BumBum?
Dave Cameron
8:54
Thor has the bone spur, is younger, doesn't have Bumgarner's track record of health.
Vic Romano
8:55
Taking the over on 6 combined hits allowed for these guys seems like a bad bet at this point...

and giants bullpen sucks

I know you should evaluate pitchers on batters faced and times through the order and not pitch counts. But when a guy is cruising and guys are swinging at the first pitch can you stretch it? It may take you 5 at bats before you see everything a pitchers got

I think the correct answer is no, it shouldnt change things, but it's also not the human answer
AJ
8:56
Thor'a motion looks very simple and non dangerous for lack of a better word does that bide well for his arm? His motion seems easy
Dave Cameron
8:56
I don't think there's any evidence that we can look at a guy's delivery and determine he'll be fine or not.
august fagerstrom
8:57
I also kind of disagree
It seems like he uses so little of his body
britishcub
8:57
bravo span working that count
august fagerstrom
8:57
Which is a thing scouts don't like, right? Because it puts more stress on the arm? I don't know. I'm out of my element. I don't even know if he uses less body than the average pitcher
Dave Cameron
8:57
Scouts tend to just not like small/skinny guys. Beyond that, I don't know that there's much consensus.
august fagerstrom
8:58
Also any delivery that results in 102MPH is dangerous. Velocity is a killer

8:58
"sure thing" -- Stephen Strasburg
sorry
Dave Cameron
8:59
Did he get tagged in the face?
august fagerstrom
8:59
Syndergaard really acting like he can hold baserunners
SpencerLB
8:59
THOSE GIANTS STOLEN BASES WE WERE WAITING FOR
august fagerstrom
8:59
ha! and then he immedaitely gets thrown out
Bork
8:59
The closeline tag, very effective.
august fagerstrom
8:59
shows what I know
Matt
8:59
He might be safe!
Dave Cameron
8:59
Pretty clearly safe.
Vic Romano
9:00
That might be one of those cases where he very briefly came off the bag between the lead foot and the bag leg.
Dave Cameron
9:00
Think the arm was on.
Jt
9:01
Sliding off the bag is the worst side effect of replay
Dave Cameron
9:01
Agreed.
Uh, ok.
Nick

Giants have to be fuming.
Nick
9:01
Wow.
Connecting...
