What the freak is going on? Gio Gonzalez is pitching a no hitter 1/3 of the way into the ballgame and has a low pitch count. :shock:

But baseball is a team game and the team may benefit from best hitters RBI number instead of best hitter getting to bat most often

But Math.

They put him on Zoloft while he was on vacation.

This is true.  However, hitters in the 3, 4, and 5 spots will have artificially inflated RBI numbers by virtue of where they're hitting in the lineup.  It's why you often see a struggling cleanup hitter hitting something like .230 but still putting up good RBI numbers.  RBI's need a runner on base (home runs obviously excluded) and having your best hitters hit more often creates more RBI opportunities.  The net result is more RBI's for the whole team, though potentially less for the best hitters, which is the main reason teams have avoided adopting this strategy en masse.  The best hitters want their RBI's and there is a fear in the industry that players would simply go elsewhere if they didn't get to bat in the prime RBI spots.

This'll either be a DP or 3-run homer for Zim...

I never realized that.    So if I'm listed at 50K goin' into this thread and over 10 years I've deleted 100 posts, then I passed 50K several days ago.   It's like celebratin' your birthday on the 17th and findin' out it's really the 14th.

More, because you have to add in all the mod deletions too.

This Skaggs kid really does have a brilliant curveball.  Reminds me a bit of Gio.

Awful. Should have scored more runs that inning. 0-7 with RISP after going 1-10 in the last game.

I don't know what it is but the arc on Difo's throws always makes me think he launched it over Zim's head when he first releases it.

A no-hitter?  I just started watching and didn't realize that.  Gio has been so solid all year for us.

He would be passing Sportsfan just about any day now.

Though, 42% of those were for breaking the "no nips" rule and those are generally in the BWT which doesn't count towards post count.
