Fun fact: Oh's translator is named Eugene
Curious
3:31
So is "Oh" the shortest last name in baseball player history?
august fagerstrom
3:31
gotta be ried

If you try and search for "Oh" on Yahoo fantasy players it tells you it needs at least 3 characters for a search

I wonder how good oh's english is, with a meeting on the mound like that it must be confusing with the translator (I didnt' see him out there)
august fagerstrom
3:34
Cardinals radio guys were just talking about this
Sounds like the mound visit clock doesn't apply when you need a translator

Better starter in 2016: Vincent Velasquez or Juan Nicasio?
august fagerstrom
3:37
Still not sure I buy Nicasio: starter
We'll see though
3:38
I like Velasquez
iHateKennyWilliams
3:38
oh looks like he has some good spin on that fastball
august fagerstrom
3:38
Command spotty so far
King Gyorko
3:38
just would like to point out that it's spelled "Seung-Hwan", on his FG page it's Seung-whan
august fagerstrom
3:38
I hadn't even noticed we got his player page up. That must have happened within the last 48 hours or so. I'll let Appelman know, thanks

There's that fluctuating outside corner to righties again.
Incredulous Doubter
3:40
this zone is WIDE
IsIt2016Yet?
3:40
wiiiiiide zone here.
august fagerstrom
3:40
Yeah, that outside edge to righties has been pretty loose all day
Bork
3:42
why did he swing at that
WHY
that's like me swinging in the show

What happens if this game goes into extra innings, and overlaps with the Jays/Rays game?
august fagerstrom
3:45
what do you mean
Scott

august, how do you search for the fact that nobody has ever put up the line that Liriano just put up?
august fagerstrom
3:45
The baseball-reference play index! Very simple search
3:46
That didn't look like much of a strike
The Dude of NY
3:46
I mean will you be chatting about this game with Paul chats about the Jays/Rays game at the same time? Won't that be confusing?
august fagerstrom
3:46
oh. yeah. there'd be some chat overlap
DC

bb-ref is life.

I love baseball-reference play index!!

That Liriano line is unique in the history of the MLB by just those five variables? Insane.
august fagerstrom
3:48
You'd be surprised how often this happens, actually. I remember Sam Miller kept track of the uniqueness of all the pitching lines a year or two ago
Especially if you include home runs in the line
How about David Freese and John Jaso playing awesome defense
wut
Poor Man's Rick Reed

Freese and Jaso defense prove there is no limit to Ray Searage's magic.
