SPITSBERGEN - Baseball Style       I had this buddy growing up; we called him LB, though it wasn’t his real name. He became LB when a high school nun who made a habit (chuckl

Holy cow... 11 hits, 5 HRs, 3 walks... and 0 strikeouts. It doesn't get much worse than that! Unless you're Matt Shoemaker.

That revamped slider tamed a couple of those dingers keeping them in the city limits. Otherwise they may have killed a few people in Duluth.

Their is no doubt that the ball has been doctored this year and past years as well. The ball is breaking more than is possible based on my physics classes in UG/grad school.....

You can exert some serious spin if your willing to have a short career but right now I believe in today's game 300 game and even 250 game winners will become rare....

Maddux, Glavine, and the rest would never last in today's game (even Moyer the master of the changeup would have trouble).....

I can’t believe the randy dobnak/Aaron judge matchup hasn’t gone our way 

Okay, sure, Judge got the better of him this time... and yeah, maybe one or two other times.  But that still doesn't make it alright for Judge to approach Dobnak before the game and ask him to be his pitcher for the AS Home Run Derby.

Yikes, really?  I got a phone call and have been spared much of this.  Now I’m off the phone and have to decide whether to continue listening.  But I don’t think I can listen to Sterling and Waldman at this point (but I agree that they are not homers as much as claimed).

I was about to say Dobnak set up nicely for Stanton's 2nd Homer with an easy & quick 5 pitch walk to Torres when that actually happened. I was almost speechless. Dobnak is not a major league pitcher period. There is no question about that. Why on earth the FO gave this unproven guy millions?

I’m trying to see the stats for Dobnak’s ‘revamped’ slider that sparked the extension... I’m not a Baseball Savant savant, and would appreciate someone that is to satisfy my curiosity.

Dobby's WAR 2019: 0.6      FIP 2019 2.9

                        2020: 0.3        2020: 3.96

                        2021: -0.5       2021: 4.65

Apparently the new slider is not helping much.....................
