Sully Baseball Podcast – The Merits of a Four Pitcher Limit – June 21, 2018

A proposal floated around baseball that would limit a manager to using four pitchers for a 9 inning game. At first I felt like it was a foolish suggestion.

But after some reflection, I think it has some merit.

Letting the pitchers pitch in this episode of Sully Baseball.

Truth is, Verlander just dominates the Yankees. Earlier in the season he went 8 strong innings before getting pulled and then we saw Ken Giles give up a long ball and punch himself in the head. Verlander’s only downside is that it’s at Yankee Stadium. He could be golden for 6+ innings at 8+ strikeouts.

It’s not that I like Junis as a pitcher, it’s that this Memorial Day there aren’t that many pitchers that have plus matchups that could help your roster by saving money and allowing you to get some more bats in there.

Jacob deGrom

I still hate the fact that he cut his hair. Did he give it to a charity? I hope so. Baseball-wise he has a matchup against the Braves that he has held down in the past. Couple that with the injury to Acuna, if New York can put up some runs on the board, I like deGrom’s chances at the W.

The Yankees are on an unbelievable streak and will probably sweep the Red Sox. But then again, the Red Sox ALSO were on an unbelievable streak earlier this year.

Meanwhile the Astros have been steady and on a 99 win pace and will probably be there when all is said and done.

MLB Master Doubleheader Schedule For 2018

AT &T Park in San Francisco and O.co Coliseum in Oakland are part of this year’s first doubleheader opportunity available by ground in 2018. The Bay Area usually holds 3 – 4 doubleheader chances a year to attend full games in both parks.

Each year we write the full doubleheader master schedule to see all games you can in one year (within reasonable driving or ground distance to cover, if not see all of both games). 

This season is no different, although this amount of contests is rapidly dwindling each campaign with staggered start times for a lot of clubs (in particular in April and on Saturdays), coupled with the time per game increasing, it makes it tougher than ever to watch 2 full games at venues.

We will add much more to this list as the year goes on, and definitely one thing to watch for is the ESPN Sunday Night Games TBD’s as the summer progresses. 

Like Ernie Banks once said “Let’s Play 2.”

Springer, Verlander, Morton and Kershaw owned the World Series

wows

Karen Warren/Houston Chronicle, Lindsey Wasson/Getty Images North America, Rob Tringali/MLB Photos via Getty Images, Harry How/Getty Images

It may seem strange, seeing Clayton Kershaw on this list. But as it turned out, despite his disastrous Game 5, Clayton Kershaw was tied with the highest WOWS total for a pitcher in the 2017 World Series.

Sure George Springer makes sense. He hit 5 homers and took the World Series MVP trophy. Yeah Charlie Morton makes sense. He was dominant as a starter in Game 4 and pitched 4 brilliant innings out of the bullpen to clinch Game 7. And Justin Verlander pitched well enough to win both Games 2 and 6.

But Morton’s WOWs total was 1 1/2 because of the bullpen meltdown in Game 4. And Verlander took the hard luck loss in Game 6, which also made his WOWs total 1 1/2.

And Kershaw was brilliant in Game 1 and pitched 4 shutout innings in relief in Game 7, earning him a 1 1/2 total.

So while Kershaw continues to lick his wounds and listen to how he is a post season failure, in at least one metric, he was a solid contributor.

This October, Kershaw was 3-0 with a 3.82 ERA. That includes the homers he let up in his victory over the Diamondbacks and his 4th and 5th inning meltdowns in Game 5 of the World Series.

Remember he threw 7 innings, allowing 3 hits, 1 run, no walks and 11 strikeouts in Game 1, seemingly putting his post season woes to rest.

They will stick around another year, but maybe he had a better October than his Game 5 would let on.

Let’s look at the final tally.

 

Final WOWS Totals MLB 2017

Hitters ‘WOWS’ MLB 2017,

George Springer – Astros 3 1/2, Cody Bellinger – Dodgers 1 1/2, Alex Bregman – Astros 1, Yuli Gurriel – Astros 1, Joc Pederson – Dodgers 1, Chris Taylor – Dodgers 1, Justin Turner – Dodgers 1,   Corey Seager – Dodgers 1/2,

Pitchers ‘WOWS’ MLB 2016,

Justin Verlander – Astros 1 1/2, Clayton Kershaw – Dodgers 1 1/2, Charlie Morton – Astros 1 1/2, Kenley Jansen – Dodgers 1, Joe Musgrove – Astros 1, Brad Peacock – Astros 1, Alex Wood – Dodgers 1, Dallas Keuchel – Astros 1/2, Kenta Maeda – Dodgers 1/2,

 

Justin Verlander and Jose Altuve Owned October (Final #WOO Tally and Results)

Young-Houston-Astros-figure-to-be-force-into-future

Jim Ruymen – UPI

The World Series is over. The Houston Astros have their first ever title in franchise history. And it is appropriate that the two players with the highest WOO (Who Owns October) score would be heroes for Houston.

Mapping the entire post season, Justin Verlander won a game in the Division Series as a starter and another as a reliever over Boston, clinched the ALCS MVP by dominating the Yankees and pitched well in the World Series over the Dodgers.

Meanwhile Altuve homered 3 times in the opening game of the Division Series and finished the 4 game defeat of Boston with a .533 average and an OPS of 1.765. His slugging continued in the ALCS with 3 homers, a .974 OPS and big plays against the Yankees.

His stats in the World Series were not as robust but he still homered twice, including a dramatic 3 run game tying shot in the wild Game 5 victory and drove in 6 runs in the 7 game series.

While Verlander and Altuve got the highest totals, they were by no means the only October heroes.

Verlander’s 4 1/2 WOO total beat out Clayton Kershaw’s 3 1/2 and Kenley Jansen’s 3.

Altuve’s final of 4 barely beat Aaron Judge, who had 3 1/2 despite not even playing in the World Series. George Springer, who took the World Series MVP and Justin Turner, who had a huge post season, also had 3 1/2, barely behind Altuve’s total.

Looking back at the final tally is odd because it encompasses the entire post season. So yes, Trevor Story of the Rockies and Brian Dozier of the Twins are on there from their Wild Card Game losses. There are Yankee, Red Sox and Nationals players with a WOO total who saw their managers let go before the October tallies were done.

But in the end, Verlander and Altuve were good representatives of owning October. They certainly led Houston to the greatest baseball moment in the city’s history.

Game 5 of the 2017 World Series was absolutely bonkers. It was a chain reaction of dramatic moments that happened last night and banal events from a few nights before that all added up to be the sum total that was the game.

I give Clayton Kershaw a break, criticize the Dodgers and hope that the series goes 7 to become an all time classic.

Who Owns October (#WOO) and Who Owns the World Series (#WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 29, 2017

MichaelCiaglo

Michael Ciaglo/Houston Chronicle

Um… what the heck just happened? Is the game still going on? Are any pitchers left? (I actually feel badly for Francisco Liriano who STILL hasn’t gotten into a game at this point!)

Too many hitters considered for owning October and the World Series! Almost NO pitcher is worthy of it.

There have been 2 wild out of our mind extra inning games this October. If ANY World Series deserves to go into November, it is THIS one!!!

So who owned October and the World Series?

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO(Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 29
2017 World Series Game 5:

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

 

Joe Musgrove was practically the only pitcher who did his job. He threw one scoreless inning and earned the 13-12 decision for the Astros over the Dodgers.

George Springer shone in a game with many offensive stars. He reached base 5 times, hitting a game tying homer, scoring 3 runs and reaching base in the winning 10th inning rally to lead the Astros to a hair raising 13-12 victory against the Dodgers.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Cody Bellinger reached base 3 times, including a triple and a homer, driving in 4, but somehow that wasn’t enough in the Dodgers heart breaking 13-12 loss to the Astros.

Who Owns October (#WOO) and Who Owns the World Series (#WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 25, 2017

Well, THAT game was bananas.

The Dodger bullpen was untouchable against Chicago. And look at this! They allowed a a run in the 8th, 9th, 2 in the 10th and 2 in the 11th.

Meanwhile the Dodgers kept tying it, Charlie Culberson thought his homer knotted it up and a pick off attempt that hit an umpire may have turned the tide of the World Series.

Like I said… bananas.

So who owned October and the World Series?

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO(Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

From October 25
2017 World Series Game 2:

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

George Springer reached base 4 times including a double and a go ahead 2 run homer in the 11th that put Houston up for good in the wild 7-6 game against Los Angeles.

Justin Verlander allowed 2 hits and struck out 5 over 6 strong innings. He did not factor in the decision but helped set up the Astros 7-6 win in 11 innings over the Dodgers.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Corey Seager hit a 2 run homer that briefly gave the Dodgers the lead. They would drop the game in 11 to Houston, 7-6.

Who Owns October (#WOO) and Who Owns the World Series (#WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 24, 2017

Well here we go. The World Series has begun and I am adding Who Owns the World Series to the post season Sully Metrics.

Clayton Kershaw made his World Series debut. Like he fellow multiple Cy Young winning Cooperstown bound compadres who kicked butt in their first World Series start (a la Greg Maddux, Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez), Kershaw did NOT disappoint.

In fact he was Kershaw-esque!

So who owned October and the World Series?

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO(Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

From October 24
2017 World Series Game 1:

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Clayton Kershaw used his World Series debut to dominate Houston with 11 strikeouts over 7 innings, giving up 3 hits, 1 run and no walks to earn the 3-1 decision for the Dodgers.

Justin Turner kept his October heroics going with a dramatic 2 out, 2 run go ahead homer that put the Dodgers on top for good over Houston, 3-1.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Alex Bregman  hit a game tying homer, which was pretty much all of Houston’s offense in their 3-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Dallas Keuchel pitched into the 7th, allowing 3 runs over 6 2/3 solid innings. But he took the hard luck 3-1 decision as the Astros fell to the Dodgers.

The Astros chucked away the tyranny of the save and won a pennant along the way. It was the greatest moment in Astros history.

The World Series is set up and the Dodgers and Astros have tons of feel good storylines on both sides.

Dailyrotohelp.com would like to welcome you to the MLB DFS article for the 7th of June.

This is one ugly 7 game slate folks. This feels more of a GPP-type night than anything to do with cash games. The pitching is scarce and the bats aren’t much better!

For this daily fantasy baseball season, each day we’ll be writing up a group of pitchers and hitters that we’re considering for our cash and GPP lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel. We’ll also provide a list of stacks to consider. As with any DFS sport, the advice below is relevant for fantasy purposes. A player or team might be better or worse from a fantasy perspective than they are in real life due to match-up, price, park factor, etc. This is important when constructing a roster.

One thing to remember outside of making sure your guy is in the lineup, is to always check the weather. Always. Make this something that is part of your basic research. Baseball games can get postponed! Your players receive no points from postponed games!

Tigers and Astros Are Taking Care of Business Early This Year

There are so many things that go on during the course of a 162-game season that it’s usually difficult to pinpoint one situation as the difference maker.

A turning point? Yea, that works, but saying one thing in particular was the reason behind a certain team living or not living up to expectations is hard. After all, baseball involves a ton of variables on any given night.

The AL West Race Is Full of Questions in the Starting Rotation

What’s the key to an MLB team beating out their competition en route to securing a division title? There are a lot of variables that go into a potential postseason run, but it’s almost always centered around pitching — both effectiveness and relative health.

Something that gets overlooked from last year was the incredible continuity the Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays had in their respective starting rotations — they were both top five in fWAR thanks to finishing first and second in total innings pitched. They accomplished that because each squad boasted five hurlers with at least 29 starts.

Virtually no teams can depend on that kind of consistency throughout the regular season.

Every division race has questions about pitching, but it seems like the American League West is just oozing with uncertainty in each of the team’s starting rotations — whether they’re a contender or not.
