Padres vs Rockies

I don't like pulling him either but I guess that is baseball now. Everyone throws mid-90s, nobody throws 100 pitches and pitching staffs are 13 or 14 guys.

Yates in the game that is tied. Brilliant move AG, here comes another loss.

I was right there with you but it worked out.  Lauer continues to show signs of becoming a solid #4.

Glad I was wrong this time.

I don't watch very many Padres' games ... but today's was free on mlb.com ...

Blew me away how many strike calls Hedges bought!  Which then caused a few hitters to swing a balls out the zone ... it all adds up.

And ... I sure wish he could hit ... as good and valuable as his defense is ... it just doesn't make up for the hole in the lineup ...

But baseball as a whole, no longer cares about the SP going past 6 innings. MLB teams simply do not want 85% of SP facing the top of the line up a 3rd time. Numbers just dont support most guys going a 3rd time through the line up. There are exceptions, but for awhile the new rule is going to be face the line up twice and turn it over to the bullpen.

Boy, that sucks.

I really don't like how current NL rosters are built: 8 players, with a back up catcher, infielder, and outfielder. And the rest are pitchers. So glad they've tweaked the rules for next year. Keeping a guy on your staff to maybe get one key out during a game, another guy because he's a lefty, another guy who can get the last 3 outs. Any of your pitchers should be able to throw a couple of innings and keep the game even.

Oh well, progress, I guess.

Next year is 3 batters minimum no need for LOOGY anymore, also must have 13 position players I believe

If/when the NL goes to the DH, then you could live with Hedges behind the plate, and he is your nine spot hitter. Then you could switch between Naylor and Mejia as the DH. There is a very small chance it could be in place for 2020, and I would bet money that it will be in the NL with the new CBA in 2021, 2022 at the latest.

I would think zero chance it will be here in 2020.

Preller doesn't trade Franmil in my opinion if even a 10% chance for next season.

Maybe they still trade Franmil even if he thought there was a small chance. Naylor offers more OBP and is LHH, with how much power decrease? So that offers a more balanced line up with a decent sized uptick in OBP, and Renfroe and Reyes bat are very similar, so if the return was better for Reyes over Renfroe, that is why they sent Reyes. Obviously just guesses at this time.

That deal is looking better by the day for SD. Reyes has struck out like ten times in four games.

Trammell was like .350 BA 1.056 OPS in 1st playoff series with Amarillo///// over his last 4 weeks he has been the organizations best hitter-- it took him sometime to adjust (Padres tinkered with his swing a little) but now he is making harder contact, SLG at career high levels while maintaining his high OBP skills... Dude looks legit...

My comment wasn’t in any way a knock on Trammell.

But they traded Reyes because he was basically a hitter without a position.

I don’t think they even inquire about a trade if they knew the DH would be available next season.
