xp to Andy: MEN whose arms were dead at 31!

Back then, you didn't know whether you'd HAVE your throwing arm the next day -- lost to the combine out on the back forty, or combat, or what have you. You just threw like hell, left everything out there on the mound.

Andy K, Wednesday, 21 May 2008 00:12 (eleven years ago) link

I once left my watch out on the mound, but that was not on purpose.

daniel cabrera, the consecutive reigning AL walks champion, pitched his third game WITHOUT issuing a walk this season last night. his three-peat is in peril as he has now tumbled out of the top ten on the heels of his 8th straight quality start.

Following Daver's stinging rebukes, I'd like to known if it's now OK to say that Lester pitched a NH.

Leee, Wednesday, 21 May 2008 21:29 (eleven years ago) link

Dana Eveland is pitching very nicely.

i saw andrew miller strike out 9 the other night, but i originally thought it was 13 or so, so i couldn't even imagine seeing 17

joe saunders is 8-1 w/ a 2.31 era right now

Greg Maddux still has it. He's perfect so far . . .

I guess it's all part of what they call . . . gowring up.

you, f, hit the gowrs.

poor form.

Steve Shasta, Thursday, 5 June 2008 03:06 (eleven years ago) link

was he perfect? i watched a bar fight at the home of the arts in the ukrainian village. never noticed.

chicago kevin, Thursday, 5 June 2008 03:48 (eleven years ago) link

felicity thought it would be 'funny' to post that after he'd pitched 1 inning & has now given herself a temp ban, assuming she has any honor left

deeznuts, Thursday, 5 June 2008 03:52 (eleven years ago) link

Greg Maddux still has it. He's perfect so far . . .

I will give him to you for Rich Hill and Matt Murton, whaddayasay.

polyphonic, Thursday, 5 June 2008 07:34 (eleven years ago) link

Haha temp ban = 5 days vacation from ILX.

Todd Wellemeyer is on the verge of 7-1 w/ an era under 3. thank you, kc royals.

DAVE BUSH

David R., Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:00 (eleven years ago) link

The same Dave Bush recently knocked out of the first inning by my ranked-30th-in-offense MLB 2K8 team?

Andy K, Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:02 (eleven years ago) link

It takes a village. Containing the same person. Doing stuff.

David R., Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:03 (eleven years ago) link

Cranky Toronto fans jinxing the hell out of DB on the BJ thread need not spread their poor sportsmanship here.

David R., Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:04 (eleven years ago) link

i may be cranky but i wish mr bush the best of luck with whatever may or may not be going on.

An Overbay TRIPLE?

i did not see that coming.
nor did i see rios getting a hit with a runner on - when he'd learn to do that?

2007?

Certainly not that lousy Adam Dunn.

Andy K, Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:26 (eleven years ago) link

the gays love Dave Bush, tho not as much as they love JJ Hardy. (personal observation)

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:36 (eleven years ago) link

uh, did you mean to spell "jays" there?

The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall, Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:46 (eleven years ago) link

I don't know if the Jays lust for Bush

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:53 (eleven years ago) link

they might, now.

The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall, Thursday, 19 June 2008 20:57 (eleven years ago) link

You guys are fast asleep. How could "The Franchise" not be mentioned a single time in this thread since its inception?

tho a 108-pitch CG w/ 10 Ks and only 2 baserunners (1 solo HR, 1 BB) ain't too shabby

LOS ANGELES PITCHERS JERED WEAVER AND JOSE ARREDONDO COMBINED FOR AN UNOFFICIAL NO-HITTER.

ah how fondly im reminded of the andy hawkins game

johnny crunch, Sunday, 29 June 2008 04:46 (eleven years ago) link

i was at the dodgers/angels game because some dude randomly gave me and my gf tickets at this restaurant 30 min before the game! i was so excited because it was HISTORIC and i kept telling my gf this and she didn't seem to care that much. but it's only the 4th time in MLB history that this has happened!

omar little, Sunday, 29 June 2008 05:40 (eleven years ago) link

The Weaver pout was in full effect.

Andy K, Sunday, 29 June 2008 11:52 (eleven years ago) link

Weaver? Uh-oh, this thread could go "taco" toxic any second now!

Tim Kurkjian pretty much wet himself over this whole thing last night. Ridiculous.

diamondboxx, Sunday, 29 June 2008 16:39 (eleven years ago) link

I think it was the fifth time that happened. Anyway we are at Dodger Stadium and John Lackey is doing really well shutting out the Dodgers so far!

felicity, Sunday, 29 June 2008 21:45 (eleven years ago) link

Jun 27
Nolasco pitched a six-hitter over eight innings for his eighth win as Florida got by Arizona 3-1 on Friday night.
Recommendation: Nolasco (8-4) allowed one earned run and one walk while striking out nine. Nolasco has been outstanding is his last four starts compiling a 3-0 record with a 4:27 BB:K ratio with a 1.82 ERA and .909 WHIP over 29.7 innings.

J0rdan S., Sunday, 29 June 2008 21:48 (eleven years ago) link

8-1 in last 11 starts

THE DOUBLE BY ATLANTA'S MARK TEIXEIRA IN THE EIGHTH INNING ENDED KURODA'S PERFECT GAME AND NO-HITTER.

Steve Shasta, Tuesday, 8 July 2008 04:15 (eleven years ago) link

I really hope Kershaw can bounce back like JV did over the last three seasons.

Van Horn Street, Sunday, 1 September 2019 19:38 (two weeks ago) link

definitely a hall of fame deal-sealing kind of event, one would think

i am also larry mullen jr (Karl Malone), Sunday, 1 September 2019 19:39 (two weeks ago) link

at this point it's just whether he can carry on like this long enough to be a first rounder

I saw the last out (and I still don't care)

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 1 September 2019 19:41 (two weeks ago) link

Phenomenal. I've caught the last few batters of lots of no-hitters/perfect games online, but (the nothingness of the game aside) that's probably the greatest pitched game I've ever seen where I watched almost the whole thing. He got a couple of close strikes, but I don't think there was anything close to a close play the whole game. I think he hit 100 for game score. I hope such games don't become permanently extinct.

clemenza, Sunday, 1 September 2019 19:43 (two weeks ago) link

JV and Cole had been very close statistically speaking for awhile but this coupled w/Cole’s last start puts him way out in front for the Cy.

omar little, Sunday, 1 September 2019 19:44 (two weeks ago) link

Third guy (Addie Joss, Tim Lincecum) to no-hit the same team twice.

clemenza, Sunday, 1 September 2019 19:46 (two weeks ago) link

Jays announcers started running down no-hitters the Jays had broken up in the 9th, and they reminded me of something I'd forgotten: Nelson Liriano tripled off Ryan to break one up, and Ryan screamed at him the whole way to third.

clemenza, Sunday, 1 September 2019 19:48 (two weeks ago) link

I think he was already first-ballot, Karl.

clemenza, Sunday, 1 September 2019 19:53 (two weeks ago) link

Please Astros acquire and fix Felix.

Van Horn Street, Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:06 (two weeks ago) link

If Verlander had retired this morning, here's how he'd stack up against Halladay:

V: 220-128, 3.35, 2943 IP, 2949 K, 128 ERA+, 3.43 FIP, 1.140 WHIP, 69.6 WAR
H: 203-105, 3.38, 2749 IP, 2117 K, 131 ERA+, 3.39 FIP, 1.178 WHIP, 65.4 WAR

Very close, but with Halladay drawing 85% support his first year on the ballot, I can't see where Verlander wouldn't do as well or better.

clemenza, Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:15 (two weeks ago) link

Please Astros acquire and fix Johan.

Van Horn Street, Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:18 (two weeks ago) link

I should have added K/BB to that comparison above. Slight edge to Halladay, 3.58 to 3.50. These guys are really close.

clemenza, Sunday, 1 September 2019 21:25 (two weeks ago) link

That was the 15th nine-inning Game Score of 100+.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_score

Impressive list. Brandon Morrow's the only guy on there without much distinction. Cain and Wood derailed by injuries, Gerrit Cole, and eight guys who are in the HOF or should/will be.

clemenza, Monday, 2 September 2019 15:00 (two weeks ago) link

https://blogs.fangraphs.com/justin-verlander-earned-that-no-hitter/

All no-hitters are impressive, as navigating an entire game without allowing a hit is a feat unto itself and generally comes with an excellent defensive performance combined with a great outing from the pitcher. Verlander’s no-hitter is one of the most impressive in recent history due to how little he relied on his teammates to complete the task.

Re: Yu Darvish' hot hand

"Since at least 1893, no pitcher in Major League Baseball history has ever had five consecutive starts without walking a batter while striking out at least 8 guys each time out."
