The next great American novel

Last half-inning the Brewers gave away two runs on a botched double play and an errant throw on a steal attempt, but they made up for it this half-inning by running into an inning-ending strikeout/throwout DP.

midseason form?
Miky
4:52
Am I insane or ir Forsythe gonna be really great for this Dodgers team?
Travis Sawchik
4:53
I like Forsythe, I didn't like the cost
Shirtless George Brett
4:54
Is there a worse 8, 9 hitting combo that Escobar and Mondesi?
Eno Sarris
4:54
If Goins and Barney are both on the field at the same time

Baltimore's broadcast uses advanced stats: batting average with runners in scoring position. Every single time there is a runner on second or third.
Travis Sawchik
4:55
We're 14 years post-Moneyball and this is still going on
MCL
4:57
how long does molitor keep his job? is the new twins FO giving him another year and then putting someone in more to their liking?
Travis Sawchik
4:58
I'd be purely speculating but he would seem to be a likely scapegoat -- accept he does have living legend status
filihok

Did you see Puig batflip the no-pitch IBB?
Eno Sarris
4:58
legend

If there was such a thing as Broadcasting WAR. Would SNY with the Mets have the highest current day WAR. Where would Hawk Harrelson be...lol?
Travis Sawchik
5:00
SNY moves to 1 post Scully and Hawk, well, lol .... Part of journalism/broadcasting should be explaining and making sense of new topics and information in the game
Tyler
5:01
I really feel like Moreland should be bating behind Bogaerts, how big of a deal is this?
Eno Sarris
5:01
Lineup slots are worth decimals of runs which are decimals of wins, I don't get too caught up. Is Xander a better hitter? Yes.
Kris
5:02
Well Joe Simpson said he'd rather have Statcast have a heart rate meter for players than any launch angle or velocity
Eno Sarris
5:02
I've seen something that suggests you can get heart rate from video data.
Which, nutty.
Travis Sawchik
5:02
BioHarness is legal for game use, right?
5:03
I think most clubs are interested in in-game heart right
Eno Sarris
5:03
Yeah but there's some difference between player decides to use it and player is compelled to use it if his club decides they should all use it.
In terms of fullness of data and also labor relations.
Toasty
5:04
nerd alert: I've seen competitive smash bros melee players play while wired up for heart rate, pretty interesting
Kris
5:04
Well I think he was suggesting to measures the player's heart as in 'grit' not actual heart rate. Sorry
Eno Sarris
5:04
sorry Joe can't measure that haha
Travis Sawchik
5:04
In-game heart rate graphic would be cool

Could a 2 man outfield (and overloaded infield) work behind Zach Britton?
Travis Sawchik
5:06
His ground-ball rate is incredible, so, yeah
5:07
I'm sure some one has calculated what the GB% must be for a 5-man infield to make sense
Tyler
5:08
Kimbrel is hitting 99 on the gun!
Eno Sarris
5:08
as wild as ever but looks great
Travis Sawchik
5:09
I saw Josh Bell taken him off the monster ... Bell is a nice-looking hitter. Love the approach
