Berrios is on pace for 300+ Ks this season

 

It appears the lineups from the AL Central are going to do their part to help turn this into reality.It's still a lofty expectation, but it's projectable with the current lay of the land.

Twins on pace to draw 3.2M in attendance. (The 39,519 that showed up yesterday appeared to be actual human beings that walked through turnstiles.)

 

On pace for 1.000 fielding percentage, and zero passed balls.

Is it too early to say Saturday's game is a must win?

 

Everyone knows games in April count less... so games in March must be worth a quarter game or something like that...

Game three. No one else is hitting higher than .200 and we have the guy batting .333 at the bottom of the order.

Fun with numbers: the guy hitting .333 is one wind-blown popup from batting .167.

Today’s starting pitcher threw half as many pitches as the first reliever and recorded one more out.

Twins pitching leads the league in strike outs, notching 40 Ks in 27 IP...

 

I could get used to this.

Pretty much a lock, by now.

I think at that time he had hit another popup that was caught so technically, he was also one wind blown popup from batting .500. :)

Willians Astudillo .368

Ty Cobb .366

Doesn't look sustainable. Cobb's BA is built on a BABIP of .383. When that eventually normalizes to a league-average, look for the Georgia Peach's numbers to come crashing down.

 

Willians's BABIP is a more svelte .352. I like his chances.

 

The difference comes because Cobb was a veritable strikeout machine, K'ing a massive 680 times in just 24 years. That's why his BA is so much lower than his BABIP. Our guy has struck out just 3 times in his entire major league career.

 

Cobb also appeared to be nearly incapable of playing anywhere on the field except CF - he worked a little in RF, now and then, probably to great detriment to the team. Astudillo? Where CAN'T he play? Case closed.

2019 is only 1 number, and it doesn't look like it is having much fun with anything...

But an enteraining thread so far.

Do go on, please!
Don't mind me...

Too lazy to look up the numbers, but i bet management agrees. This is why Willians commands the larger salary?

With 4 Plate Appearances in 2019, versus 3 apiece for Castro and Garver, Willians Astudillo is listed by baseball-reference.com this morning as the starting catcher for the Minnesota Twins. Congratulations on the promotion!
