Lauer, Quantrill armed for quick trip to bigs

Eric Lauer had one thought above all others as he watched Cal Quantrill finish off the sixth inning with the last of his 12 strikeouts in a May 2 game. “Damnit! Now I have got to get 13 just to beat him.” That is pretty much what the Padres knew the result of this pairing would be, with the two...

The Hangover: Jarred Cosart, Change Yourself

Jarred Cosart turns 27 today, which seems like as good a time as any to try something different. Players are doing just that all across baseball, both having birthdays and seemingly willing themselves into better players simply by changing their style. Many pitchers are throwing more breaking balls, like Rich Hill, Trevor Cahill (here), or Brad Hand (here), going from also-rans to effective big-league hurlers in the snap of a curveball. Eric Thames went to South Korea and learned the strike zone, returning a slugging star. Daniel Murphy decided to start lifting the ball, and he racked up 77...

Mets vs. Padres Recap: Salas, Ramirez, and Smoker sink the ship

Mets vs. Padres Recap: Salas, Ramirez, and Smoker sink the ship

The Mets’ bullpen continues to struggle. The Mets did not take full advantage of a rare thing in 2017—a good start from Robert Gsellman—and dropped the second game of their series to the San Diego Padres, 6-5. Gsellman started for the Mets, and notched his best start since April 19. He went six innings, struck out three, gave up three runs on six hits, one walk, and three strikeouts. Gsellman still doesn’t quite look like the pitcher we saw last season for the Mets, but this was a quality start, something the Mets have sorely lacked this month. The Padres got on the...

The Hangover: News And Notes (And A Helmet Sticker)

Jhoulys Chacin‘s struggles continues The most often cited Chacin split is the home-road one, where he’s somehow posted a 0.67 home ERA this season and a 8.77 one on the road, and that doesn’t include last night’s clunker in New York. That Chacin split is explainable to a degree (Petco’s pitcher friendly, players perform better at home, etc.), but with that large a gap it’s mostly just a good helping of statistically noise. The more meaningful Chacin split is probably the lefty-right one (not that it’s bereft of noise), as he’s allowed .894 OPS against lefties this season,...
