    Max Scherzer passed Drysdale for 35th on the all-time K list. That sounds crazy. It doesn’t feel like he’s been around long enough.

    Guess who has a 2.57 ERA/2.24 FIP with a 11.14 K/9IP and a 2.57 BB/9 IP this season? That's right, it's Sonny Gray.

    Sonny Gray's 8 Ks and 13 swings and misses through 4 innings is his most since 4/1/18 against the Blue Jays. 🔥🔥🔥

    Gray doesn't get run support. He leads MLB in FIP, but he's 0-3 and is in a 14-way tie for the most losses in the NL.

    Pitchers who got AL Cy Young votes last year have a combined record of 10-13 (.435). That includes relievers. Verlander at 3-0 and Trevor Bauer at 2-1 are the only ones above .500. 9 pitchers got votes, of which 8 have pitched this year. Severino hasn't.

    Gio Gonzalez went to Milwaukee where he ended last year.

    Cubs closer Pedro Strop had quite the day/night. His car was stolen before the game so he was dealing with that "until the fourth inning" when he told police "I might have to pitch. I have to go." Says the car was later involved in a police chase. He was still dealing with the aftermath not long after securing the save in the Cubs 7-6 win over the Dodgers.

    Seattle's Marco Gonzales is on pace for a Cy Young Predictor score of 256.7. ESPN has it going back to 2002, and the record is 255.3 by Randy Johnson in 2002. Verlander had 241.3 when he won MVP and 24 games. The last three years, nobody reached 200, with the highest being 199.2 for Kluber in 2017. Gonzales is 27 and started the year with 18 wins and a 4.46 ERA.

    St. Louis is doing well with Paul Goldschmidt, who has a .963 OPS. However, Arizona replaced him at first with Christian Walker, who's ninth in MLB with a 1.051 OPS. Entering the year, he had 99 plate appearances scattered in 2014, 2015, 2017, and 2018 with a .170/.263/.420/.683.

    Manny Machado has 4 home runs, 10 RBI, and a .733 OPS. That's worse than the MLB average of .745. and worse than Urshela's .793. San Diego is Wild Card 2 as of now, but they have the fourth fewest runs scored in MLB.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Tyler Glasnow has the third best ERA of 84 pitchers. Only 3 pitchers have a worse ERA than Chris Sale, who doesn't have enough innings to qualify. Boston is favored.

    Edit: Tampa Bay lead 4-0. Chris Sale allowed 2 unearned runs due to an error by Rafael Devers. Before today, Sale allowed 2 unearned runs in his last 38 starts.

    Edit: Christian Yelich left today's game at Citi Field with back discomfort. He leads MLB with 14 home runs and 34 RBI. Ben Gamel, who made his MLB debut with the Yankees and had 1 hit before being traded to Seattle for two minor leaguers, replaced Yelich in right field. Gamel made a diving catch and doubled Steven Matz off first after he hit an infield single.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Boston beat Oakland 9-4 and had a strange situation about the winning pitcher. Eduardo Rodriguez left leading after 4 2/3 innings. Heath Hembree got his only batter out, but was not given a win because he only got 1 out, and he kept the lead and wasn't given a hold either. Colten Brewer pitched the sixth, which went groundout-walk-grounded into a double play. That should have been good enough for the win. It wasn't "brief and ineffective." Brandon Workman got 2 outs and walked 2. Ryan Brasier pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings and was given the win. Brewer and Workman got holds. You can only get a hold if you were brought in while winning, so normally holds only happen when a pitcher before you got a win or a pitcher after you got a blown save, neither of which happened in this game. Maybe official scorers should be given less discretion about who gets given a win. If a pitcher pitches at least 1 inning, does not allow a run, and leaves after an inning or with the bases empty, he should be given a win if possible.

    There are five pitchers who had at least 30 saves and an ERA under 1.00, the first of whom was Eckersley in 1990. This year five pitchers with ERAs under 1.00 are on pace for at least 30 saves.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Right before "trifecta" is used in the Kentucky Derby, MLB had a trifecta of teams winning with starters who pitched 3 or fewer innings and left for three reasons:

    James Mapxton left after 3 innings due to injury.

    Atlanta beat Miami 7-2. Atlanta's Kevin Gausman pitched 1 2/3 and was ejected for throwing behind Jose Urena. Gausman was accused of throwing at Urena (who got out of the way) because Urena hit Ronald Acuna Jr. last year.

    San Francisco beat Cincinnati 12-11 in 11 innings. San Francisco tied their team record for biggest comeback. Tyler Beede pitched 2 1/3 innings and left down 8-0.

    Six games were decided by 1 yesterday. Colorado had a trifecta of close losses in MLB, NBA, and MLS. The Rockies trailed 10-6 entering the bottom of the ninth, scored 3, had second and third with 1 out and a chance to the on an out, and struck out twice to lose 10-9. Toronto won 1-0 at Texas in 4:00 with the only run in the top of the 12th. In addition to having San Francisco's comeback from down 8, the Bay Area had Oakland's Josh Phegley have 8 RBI in a 14-1 win at Pittsburgh.

    This is cool. Pablo Sandoval yesterday. (kinda happy for him)

    Pablo Sandoval would go on to have some unique moments as well. In the 2nd inning, Sandoval stole 3rd base, marking his first stolen base since 2012. By the 8th inning, San Francisco had built up enough of a lead to put Sandoval on the pitcher's mound, where he got out of the inning facing the minimum 3 batters. Sandoval had contributed to the Giants' lead in part by a home run in the 6th inning.

    Sandoval is the first player since 1964 to record a home run, a stolen base and a pitching appearance in the same game. Here's a look at the last 5 cases of this combination in MLB history.

    The Reds beat the Giants 12-4 but otherwise yeah kind of cool statistical anomaly for Panda.

    The Baseball-Reference Play Index says Sandoval was the twelfth player from 1908 to the present to do that, and the first one to pitch and play another position. The previous pitchers to do that include MVP Don Newcombe and Hall of Famers Lefty Grove and Walter Johnson.

    Somebody tweeted asking Jayson Stark how many times Bryce Harper has struck out at least twice. He has done that in 25.1 percent of his games. Pujols, A-Rod, Jeter, Helton, Miguel Cabrera, Ichiro, Beltre, Cano, and Trout have all done that in under 25 percent of their games. Trout is at 23.0 percent, and the next highest is A-Rod at 19.0 percent.

    People should look at walks, not just strikeouts. Hitters want their strikeout-to-walk ratio to be low (it's not a hitting statistic but I calculate it). Trout is at 1.40, Harper is at 1.44, and A-Rod was significantly worse at 1.71.

    Joey Gallo hit his 100th career HR the other night. He's the first player to get to 100HR before getting 100 singles (he has 93 of those).
