I don't think they exist in the UK.... I just googled Graham Crackers and the picture that came up was rectangular, so I assumed they all were.

In any case, a cream cracker, is just a cracker!

Watch again if you get a chance. He dropped it to the outside of the bag, not in front of it.

This series has just been painful. Nobody can get a big hit. They had two chances with a runner on 3rd, less than 2 outs, didn't strike out, and still couldn't get the runner home. They're in their own heads now, especially Kipnis and Cabrera, who are taking at bats out into the field with them.

The umpiring was bad with Tichenor behind the plate last night, but nowhere near tonight's shitshow. The problem is that umpires have nobody to answer to. They're basically appointed until they retire. It's a sad state of affairs that the same terrible guys (CB Bucknor) continue to have their jobs. Some umpires are great and it's amazing how accurate they are on base calls. I understand that strike zones are different for every guy, but Dale Scott's was incredibly inconsistent from both sides.

Just a mess of a baseball game tonight. From Bauer's start to the Indians hitting to the umpiring to the dumb luck of everything the Rays hit down the line staying fair and everything the Indians hit down the line going foul.

Not expecting much tomorrow, though it would make perfect sense for the Indians to struggle against Alex Cobb and Matt Moore yet get to David Price for a few runs. Hopefully if they score, Masterson's able to give us six or seven strong innings.

You use 'gash' to describe something that is not good or that you don't like. I know that seems odd given the definition of the word, but that's just how we do across the pond.

Maybe it's because the word is so horrible sounding, like 'cunt' :)

No. All about "down angle".

And the back and forth on the rubber? Always trying to gain an edge with pitches moving into the hitters hands. It will probably catch on some day if Bauer turns out to be a oimo (and he is doing it intentionally and continues to do so). I could see that being something that drove Kirk Gibson crazy in AZ.

That was the way I taught it. IMO D&D gets a kid out front too fast and puts too much stress on the arm to catch up.

It seems to me that moving back and forth on the rubber is the same as moving up in the box- both temporary solutions to bigger problems.

One thing is for sure, he'll never make the Show with 7BBs a game.

Bauer believes that fly balls are better than ground balls. His logic is that fewer fly balls go for hits than ground balls. The trade-off is obviously that fly balls go for home runs and doubles. He's intentionally trying to use the top half of the zone. It's not a mechanical flaw or something wrong in his delivery, it's the way he wants his mechanics to be. Unfortunately, as you can see, and as he has shown, it really affects his fastball command.

Here's what he said and a link: http://www.azcentral.com/sports/diamond ... rview.html

If I'm not mistaken that was the night you went on Twitter and said something about not liking ground balls. It sort of seemed like a lot of people were like, 'Wait, what?'

"Yeah. It was controversial. I knew that when I posted it. It was part of the reason I posted it. I like to post things that make people think. The initial reaction to 'I hate ground balls' is, 'Oh my God, the sky is falling! How could anyone...' But when you actually look at it and think about the statistics behind it, it makes a lot of sense. Hitters are trained to hit the ball hard on the ground. Fly balls are bad. You don't want to hit the ball in the air. Hit the ball on the ground. Pitchers are taught to get them to hit the ball on the ground. Something's got to give. Hitters and pitchers can't both want the same thing. And ground balls have a much higher chance of producing a base runner. You've got to field the ball, throw the ball and field the ball again. That's three things you have to do. A fly ball you just have to catch it. A strikeout you don't have to do anything. Ground balls statistically go for hits a lot more than fly balls.

"Sure, fly balls produce more power numbers and stuff like that. But everyone gets so scared of the home run and the double, but if you actually have a plan on how to disrupt hitters' timing and you're not just guessing, 'Oh, I think this pitch here' 'I think that pitch there.' With Effective Velocity and understanding the physics behind a swing and hitters' timing and stuff like that -- I'm not scared of giving up fly balls. If I do a good job of disrupting a hitter's timing, they're not going to be able to hit it out of the park. So, to me, strikeouts and fly balls are key. The more of those I can get the better off I'm going to do. The amount of fly balls that I get aren't going to produce the amount of hits that some other pitchers' fly balls may produce. At least that's the theory. And, so far, it's proven out. I don't know how it's going to play at the big league level.

"It's just stuff like that that challenges the conventional wisdom. 'Do it because everybody else does it.' I'm not exactly in that mold. People don't know how to take it sometimes. It's not just frustration. 'Oh, I gave up five hits on ground balls today so now I hate ground balls.' I feel like I'm doing a better job of sequencing pitches and stuff like that if I get the ball hit in the air than if I get it hit on the ground."


I like the kid's potential and I love the way he studies. I think he's too smart for his own good on the mound, but he's still just 22.

Hitters aren't trained to hit hard ground balls. They are trained to hit the ball hard. The last thing some are told is to hit the ball hard on the ground.

Terry instructing Mark Reynolds to get out there and hit the ball hard on the ground is something you are never going to hear.

His is as noted, 22.
