Miami Marlins 2016 (Jose Fernandez RIP 9/25/16)

Only 60 hits left for Ichiro to get to 3000, will HBO make a documentary? Nah.

Also, we will see a lot of this over the season I'm sure: http://www.sbnation.com/2016/4/19/11460600/christian-yelich-barry-bonds

I hope one day Barry gets a ring as a coach/manager, won't happen with these .333 Marlins.

During the weekend MIA series, the ATL booth seemed dubious that Ichiro would get enough ABs to get to 3000 this year. Sounded like a gallon of haterade to me -- esp since he came in in the 6th and had 2 hits that game.

David Schoenfield
Giancarlo Stanton, mired in a terrible slump in May, has swung and missed on 40.4 percent of swings on the season. In our database going back to 2009, that's the highest rate for a regular player. Even Mark Reynolds hasn't hit that percentage.

Andy K, Tuesday, 24 May 2016 01:43 (two years ago) Permalink

Ichiro has ten hits in his last three games and is hitting .417. This 3000 hits thing is actually going to happen (40 hits to go).

ichiro is 2-3 tonight with two BB, 3 runs scored. 24 hits to 3,000.

"It sounds like in Japan, they're trying to make me the Hit Queen," Rose told USA Today Sports. "I'm not trying to take anything away from Ichiro -- he's had a Hall of Fame career -- but the next thing you know, they'll be counting his high school hits.

Is he getting a lot of playing time right now? I wonder if they'll hold him out the next 4 games so he gets to 3000 at home.

out of curiosity is there like legit proof that the ball is juiced vs. just a change in batting coaching (aka: it's ok to sstrike out 200 times just try to hit 30 homers; launch angle training; etc)? was talking abt it with a pal tonight and realized neither of us knew if there was any solid evidence, it seems like it'd be pretty easy to prove

flippy bard (Will M.), Tuesday, 3 October 2017 00:02 (one year ago) Permalink

there is interesting evidence but not necessarily incontrovertible proof, search the ringer or fangraphs for some good articles

k3vin k., Tuesday, 3 October 2017 00:09 (one year ago) Permalink

the entire league did not suddenly switch swinging strategy at a specific point in the middle of 2015

the lindbergh/lichtman study is absolutely enough for me. the statcast era has given us everything we need to know to see the difference and weed out other variables.

has there been a league-wide shift in hitting philosophy since then? yeah, but i don't think that would've happened if it wasn't clear there was a new ball to work with. it presented a new opportunity to get offensive value out of struggling, aging hitters, and teams have taken advantage.

qualx, Tuesday, 3 October 2017 00:25 (one year ago) Permalink

i don't think it's actually possible in our human reality for this degree of HR% increase to happen in this short a span without a change to the ball, and i have a doctorate in baseball science

qualx, Tuesday, 3 October 2017 00:27 (one year ago) Permalink

i'm not saying i don't believe it, i just haven't really done the research (and when i try to google it i find more "fake news" on the subject than good shit). will check out the ringer and fangraphs tho, thx!

throw a baseball and then throw a tennis ball and see the movement difference. It's the extreme example but it's a pretty simple demonstration about what happens to objects in space

The backstory of the Giancarlo Stanton trade is bonkers. Miami threatened that if he didn’t accept a trade to St. Louis or San Francisco, he would be a Marlin for life. He called their bluff. And because of it, he’s a New York Yankee.

Not playing captain save a captain, but I suppose one could say that I doubt ESPN would not have lit into Roger Goodell or Adam Silver in the same way and that would be true. ESPN doesn't seem to give a shite about baseball on a good day, so it's not surprising.

Marlins are into their third extinction cycle. Their team existence is some type of weird Chinatown real estate scam, just looping suckers into buying high. Loria was able to flip $158 millon of borrowed money into selling a club for over a billion dollars and he got a world series ring. Who is laughing now?
