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

    I read somewhere that the doctor would clear him to pitch again but would not clear him for the remainder of 2018 so he heals up properly. Obviously baseball takes the back seat in these types of situations, but it is still great to hear Farquhar will be able to play the sport he loves.

    “I didn’t feel myself get tagged,” Olson said. “There are professionals looking at it, I trust that I did get tagged. I don’t know, I think they have super slo-mo. It’s hard to tell from the replay I saw. If he got anything, it was just barely any jersey.”

    Olson said he doesn’t have a “huge array of slides,” but did the best he could, and he arched his back away from Sanchez when he saw he was reaching back for him. “I guess not enough,” he said.

    Whatever the case, it was very close. Gardner said he thought Olson was safe, too, until he saw the replay. “It wasn’t even close once you saw the replay,” he said. “The camera, once they slow it down, it doesn’t lie. It’s obviously a bang-bang play.”

    “We’re on the wrong side of that every single time, it seems like,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said of call reversals. “The call was out, they said they saw some sort of touch there. There’s not much we can do about it.”

    xwOBA is a relatively simple stat that doesn't try to do more than it does, but I have to say, the top names on the leaderboard (min 100 PA) are really, really satisfying:

    .520 -- Betts
    .466 -- Freeman
    .465 -- Harper
    .464 -- Trout
    .455 -- Votto
    .452 -- JD M
    .450 -- Bryant

    Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera 'so mad' about Robinson Canó suspension

    https://www.freep.com/story/sports/m...ion/613140002/

    “That’s why I’m so mad,” Cabrera said. “He’s a Hall of Fame player.”

    “He play every day,” Cabrera said. “He do everything right. Now everybody is going to write all this stupid (crap).”

    Cabrera said he doesn’t care what others think about Canó.

    “I know Canó for a lot of years and I know he didn’t cheat,” Cabrera told the Free Press. “I’m (expletive) mad right now.

    “His doctor prescribed the medication. I think he got all the paperwork. Why he get positive? I don’t understand that. If it’s something for him to get better.”

    Asked if he’s ever concerned about medication he takes in the offseason, Cabrera said: “No, because I live in Miami. If I lived in Venezuela, I might test positive, too. If I need some medicine, I gotta take (it).

    “If I gotta take something to get better if I’m sick, I’m going to take it. I’m going to do the same thing Canó do because I need it. If I’m in Venezuela, not here in the United States.”

    Interesting perspective about foreign doctors.


    I'm still not buying it but at least it's a somewhat plausible explanation.

    I give no credence to any attempt at mitigation unless and until he specifies the medical condition that required administration of this particular diuretic, ideally with supporting lab tests, doctor's exam notes, etc. He has not done so. Yes, he has the right to keep his medical info confidential. And I have the right not to believe him without it.

    If the Lasix was prescribed for a legitimate medical condition, he should be able to produce this documentation, which would demonstrate that he was NOT taking the medication for its screening properties.

    The fact that the Independent Program Administration either was not given this documentation - or rejected it - tells me that something was fishy in Denmark.

    BTW - I really disagree with the timing of this announcement. It seems to me that he gave up this appeal knowing that he was effectively shortening the suspension, since he could not play for the next X number of weeks.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    Not to change the subject (also being discussed in the Former Yankees Performance thread), but ...


    So, why DO women have to play softball, not baseball? Discuss.

    This addresses a lot of your questions.

    There’s some other salient points as women and baseball throughout the past 150 or so years, but here’s an interesting one:

    Later in the century, Title IX, the 1972 law mandating gender equity in federally funded education programs, helped girls' sports grow. But it did not do much for women's baseball. Jocelyn Samuels, vice president for education and employment at the National Women's Law Center, explained that Title IX does not mandate the kind of sport programs schools should have... only that women and men's sports should be funded equally.

    Attorney Sue Lukasik, an advocate of women's baseball, explained that because softball and baseball were deemed equivalent sports during the 1970s, schools were within their rights in denying girls baseball when softball was available.

    My take is that it is a manifestation of the age-old predilection of males to protect females. It is certainly easier to get hurt playing hardball than softball, when speaking of adults, and this drives the decision about what children should play. . Headmasters and athletic directors have been male, looking back over recent decades. Parents are likely to buy into this. Add the universal constant of inertia and you have your answer.

    I'd say the danger is overstated. As long as players are at parity in physical size and strength, I don't think the additional risk is material. Let the girls play.

    There's a young French woman who wanted to play in the World Baseball Classic. MLB said that any team that wants to sign her is allowed.

    I wonder how the Rays attendance compares to the Eckerd College graduation at Tropicana Field. Wikipedia says Eckerd has 1,800 students, is Presbyterian, and is in Division II.

    “I was pitching well, keeping them off balance a little bit,” Skoglund said. “They changed their approach a little bit in the fourth inning.”



    “First three innings, I thought he was really, really good,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He was pitching aggressively in. Then he just kind of lost command.”

    Skoglund has mixed effective outings, like 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball against the Rays in his previous start, with games like Sunday.

    After the third, Yost wanted to allow Skoglund to work out of difficulty.

    “If he’s not totally overwhelmed, try to allow him to pitch through some trouble,” Yost said. “These are all learning opportunities. Adversity is good, games like this are good, if (he) reflects on it … I see bright spots in game like today, and I see where the lights go out. But they’re all good experiences.”

    So Astros placed Derek Fisher on DL with Digestive Issue? Do we really believe He's injured? He seems fine when He scored run other day. These teams taking advantage of Disable List. Yankees should do same with Gardner.

    If he's not having medical issues then wouldn't they just option him out as he has options. Why clutter the DL and still pay him MLB wages.
