Mariners fall 5-0 to Rich Hill and the A's

Chris Taylor spills his cup of coffee The batter ahead of him had just weakly grounded out to the pitcher. Cue the music. Cue the weight knocked off his bat. Cue the tap of of the barrel against his cleats. Cue the terror of another time in the batters box against a man possessed and a crowd on the verge of eruption. Cue the grass turning to dirt around home. Cue game time. It's the bottom of the eighth and his team is losing, five to nothing with Rich Hill on the mound for his final frame in a masterful evening. Behind him, the half-inning previous, is two errors in one inning that opened...

Game #46: Hill tosses shutout against M's offense, A's win 5-0

Rich Hill looked magnificent on the mound and Oakland's offense came to play in the late frames, for a much-needed victory against the first-place Seattle Mariners. The A's needed that win, and they needed that win badly. Rich Hill delivered eight shutout innings against a potent Mariners offense; while the green and gold managed to tack on five runs in the late frames. Hill's curveball looked absolutely nasty against the opposition, as did Taijuan Walker's fastball; but the A's powered through as the M's defense crumbled in the eighth. Recap in progress.

Red Sox offered Rich Hill contract, fell short on dollars

John Tomase writes in today’s column that the Red Sox tried to retain starting pitcher Rich Hill with a one-year deal in free agency, but were short on the money. Hill, who was signed by Boston during last season and came up from Triple-A Pawtucket to go 2-1 with a 1.55 ERA and 36 strikeouts […]

Red Sox reportedly offered Rich Hill a contract, but it wasn't enough

The Sox helped revive Hill's career, and now they're watching the A's reap the benefits because of the opportunity they could provide. The Red Sox will face old friend Rich Hill this week in Boston's series against the A's. If not for the opportunity Oakland could offer Hill, though, it might be the Sox benefiting from the lefty right now instead. The Red Sox reportedly offered Hill a contract when he was a free agent this winter, but what they couldn't guarantee was a rotation spot, and that sent Hill west to the rebuilding Athletics. The offer was for less than the $6 million Hill...

Orioles part of Rich Hill's crazy journey - School of Roch

Before Rich Hill became the six million dollar man, before he went from the Long Island Ducks to living high on the hog, he was an injured pitcher at Orioles spring training. Full of promise and anxiety and failed expectations. Hill would make 13 starts among his 14 appearances with...

If the offseason started today, what would you offer Rich Hill?

Based on the five starts we've seen thus far. Let's pretend you have a time machine. No, you greedy mongrel, you can't go back and buy a lottery ticket. No you can't bet on the NCAA Tournament with a perfect bracket in hand. Instead, you'll go straight to November 17th, 2015, the day news of Rich Hill's signing first broke. Knowing what you know now from Hill's five tremendously fun and tumultuous starts, what kind of deal would you offer the lefty? On Baseball Prospectus' podcast Effectively Wild, hosts Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller have an ongoing discussion on this topic. The years and...

Game #21: A's at Tigers

With Rich Hill on the hill, the A's look to snap their three game losing streak against a fearsome Tigers lineup. This is a long road trip. Too long, if you ask me. After a hot start in which they swept the Yankees, the A's have dropped three straight due to some bad pitching, quiet bats, and a team that looks like it's on the second leg of a long and far road trip. Do the A's have it in them to stop the bleeding? Accidental #1 pitcher Rich Hill gets the nod tonight, looking to play stopper for the A's. I'm an optimist, though, so I'll think of him as a starter rather than a stopper. He's...
