Pet Peaves

Postby Garvey6 » Sun Apr 24, 2016 3:34 pm

Feel free to add whatever irks you to my list:

1. Closers pitching in non-save situations. I might use my free time to compare the ERA's of closers in save and in non-save situations. I'm convinced their combined ERA in the latter is about 6 1/2

2. Staying with closers, I hate when their team scores too many runs in their last at-bat and keeps them from a save opportunity -- unless I don't have that closer on my team, of course ;-)

3. Here's a proposed stats change for MLB: If a starting pitcher hurls a quality start (6 IP, 3 ER or less) and exits the game with a lead, he's eligible for the win no matter what -- even if the game is decided in extra innings. It bugs me when my starter exits a 2-1 game in the 8th inning and the reliever comes in, blows the game, and then gets credit for the win if their team comes back.

Any more pet peaves???

Just don't give the win to anyone but the starting pitcher. It's a fairly useless stat with modern bullpens anyways.

Dang...and I consider myself a very good speller, too hahaha. I'll delete tweets if I find I made a mistake, even by accident. Nice catch ;-D

And on the topic of bad trade offers, last week in my AL-only dynasty league, I got offered $12 Buchholz for $5 McCullers 8-o

I'll add another one since Melancon just benefited from it. A closer who comes in with a 4-run lead and two outs and one on gets a weak-ass save :-t

I don't like intentional walks being charged against the pitcher.

Not really. Runners on second and third with nobody or one out . Tough hitter up . Create a force play by walking the hitter. The pitcher could be coming in to put out the fire and those runners aren't his. Even if they are could have been an error or a close play on a double play that created the situation. Still when a manager elects NOT to pitch to a hitter its not always the pitchers fault why .

Did not the pitcher create this problem ?

The pitcher could be coming in to put out the fire and those runners aren't his.

Doubt very much that that the arm coming in tosses the intentional.

Still when a manager elects NOT to pitch to a hitter its not always the pitchers fault why .

But usually is the pitchers fault
