Don Mattingly

I hope someone takes a screenshot of the Uber surge multiplier
5 Run Homer
11:01
Dusty's toothpick has gotta be the best managerial accessory, right?
TOOTBLAN

Using a half dozen relievers in an inning the new market inefficiency?

Turner looks like an extra from a Peter Jackson movie
Pat
11:01
Turner is awful against LH, why not leave him in?
Dave Cameron
11:02
No reason to think that reverse platoon split is real.

transit systems have very high fixed costs but very low operating costs. any transit agency that shuts down a system an hour before 50,000 people are about to use it to leave a ballgame is incompetent.
Dave Cameron
11:03
Well, I'm guessing the workers are unionized, so it might not be so easy to make them work.
Well, Actually...
11:04
He has over 600 PA this season, is that really too small a sample size for the reverse splits?

DC's Metro is in the middle of a horrendous maintenance overhaul, and closes early every night. No exceptions.

THE RED DREAM

Welp.

Huge!
Dodgers Fan
11:05
YES
Sad Melancon
11:05
All this while Melancon rots in the pen.
Dave Cameron
11:05
Kelley is just as good as Melancon.
Craig Edwards
11:06
I think it's closer to 1,000 from that side before you get some confidence. A lot of things happened while I was typing this.
Gavin
11:06
As a dodgers fan GOD YES. But we still have to get through the seventh inning
@FlippedBats
11:06
kelley is hurt
ChatzMcGee
11:07
Pitcher's arms are a sad story. :(
5 Run Homer
11:07
Aw man
Cale
11:07
Man, seeing a pitcher exit after that is a terrible sight.
Craig Edwards
11:08
At least Turner is a better hitter than Pete Kozma.
Can't Buy Me Love

dusty rushed the warmup on a double tommy john guy.
Dave Cameron
11:08
Can't possibly know if they are related.
Nodog
11:09
What else can we blame on Dusty Baker?
Dave Cameron
11:09
The metro, probably

Turner had a reverse split back when he was with the Mets. it's a pretty significant split over his whole career (774 PA vs. LHP).
Dave Cameron
11:09
Not a large enough sample.
Seriously, there's basically no RH hitter in baseball history with a sustained reverse platoon split.
libre
11:10
If the best predictor of future injury is past injury, how can we say that it's not related?
Dave Cameron
11:10
You have no idea how warm Kelley was
ncb
11:11
Would still take Dusty Baker over Matt Williams.
Dave Cameron
11:11
Of course.
The Nationals like Dusty. They hated Williams.
Piling on Dusty for this is simply narrative over facts. Ruiz's ball was a few inches from being a double play.
