Becomes Jaso's platoon partner at first base
slash backup third baseman
Ethan
3:51
He's better than the short-side of a platoon, right?
august fagerstrom
3:51
Meh
3:52
He's like the breakeven point for a starting 3B for a contender

whats the best way to familiarize yourself with the best non-closing relievers in the game? I didn't know anything about Oh or Watson before this game
august fagerstrom
3:52
maybe sort a RP leaderboard by FIP over the last year or two or something?
3:53
though that wouldn't help you with Oh, seeing as that was his MLB debut
could export to Excel and delete guys with saves and voila, set-up man/middle reliever leaderboard

% likely of this happening for Pillar: .291/.341/.445 19HR 28SB, 5.6fWAR
august fagerstrom
3:53
really unlikely?
3:54
take the way under on homers and OBP there
Incredulous Doubter

re relief pitchers... just read fangraphs obsessively
august fagerstrom
3:54
or this
do this
Daniel
3:55
That ball by Polanco was smoked
august fagerstrom
3:55
Both balls off the bat against Maness have been smoked
Mike
3:55
Second ball Polanco has STUNG today
august fagerstrom
3:56
Don't really love that bunt but ultimately shouldn't matter too much
3:57
ok
what
just bunting themselves out of the inning
weird...
Bork
3:57
owow
that was bad
ASUfool
3:57
wow... why squeeze?
Mike
3:57
Ugly attempt by Mercer
august fagerstrom
3:57
did he even get it down?
nope
geez
G
3:58
I would guess Harrison bunted on his own....that suicide squeeze was NOT a good call though...
august fagerstrom
3:58
like Maness just threw two fat pitches that got roped
then bunt-bunt with a suicide squeeze?
Hugh
3:59
Mercer the worst hitter, who starts, in the game?
august fagerstrom
3:59
true
oh. that helps, then
not a great route by Grichuk in CF didn't look like
not sure how many CFers get to that anyway. especially considering he was already shading Mercer to RCF a bit
4:00
Michael Morse. Not a fast person
