  1. Assigning a 1-5 number to a starter is not a stat. It's an arbitrary label that has no empirical statistical basis.
  2. I haven't read the whole thread, but I don't understand why people get so hung up on categorizing starting pitchers. I think it should be the goal to have a rotation of starters who have different strengths (with at least one lefty) to give a different look for the opposing team to deal with every game, but to try to assign a classification of ace, 2, 3, etc. is totally arbitrary and, IMHO, pointless.
  3. So what if the pitcher slows down a bit in occasional situations? Speeding up pace of play does not have to mean there must be action every second.
  4. So what would prevent a batter from standing outside the batter's box and letting the pitch clock wind down? Whether there's a batter's clock or not the pitch clock should not start until a legal pitch can be thrown.
  5. My favorite jersey does not currently exist. The best home uniform, which should be worn 81 times every regular season, is the cream pinstripes of the original team except that the very ugly 1960's script would be supplanted by the 2010-vintage "Twins" script that is currently used on the white pajama home uniforms.
  6. I'm in favor if it but only with these two provisions: One, there must also be a clock on the batter getting both feet in the batter's box (and the pitch clock will not start until that happens). Two, the pitch clock (but not the batter clock) will be turned off when there is a runner on base.
  7. I'm glad there have been no ignorant posts about it being Ryan's fault that he let that ball hit him like there were when Buxton suffered a broken hand.
  8. It's hard to tell, but I assume you were joking. What he did was OK from a business standpoint for an unaffiliated minor league team. Since the roster is made up of has-beens, never-wases, and never-will-bes you have a very low payroll so you don't have to attract many fans to cover expenses. This also means you won't attract fans who want to see quality baseball so instead you market to people who are willing to pay to see a pig as a mascot and other kooky gimmicks. Your win-loss record makes no difference. None. This would never work in the major leagues.
  9. When there is an infield fly the batter is out and the runners can advance at their own risk. The thing about that in this case is that it removes the force play at third and second. On the play neither runner was tagged out so they should have been placed at third and second.
  10. I've said this before and I'll say it again regarding replays. The official deciding the replay should not know the call on the field. The official would rule safe, out, or inconclusive. Only if the ruling is inconclusive would the call on the field stand.
  11. This is Polanco talking to the first baseman after that tag. https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=0w-HpBPJC1I&list=RDAMVM0w-HpBPJC1I
  12. Interesting that Perez was in proper position to back up the throw by staying at home plate.
