Default 2017 Baseball Season Thread

First off, the 2016 Baseball Season link.

Although this year's Padres are expected to hover around the 100 loss mark, hopefully they won't get off to the same dreadful start as last year - after all, they again face the Dodgers, and have a much younger team. Good luck to the team!

*****

Not knowing of a better spot for this, here is George F. Will's 2017 Opening Day Quiz

How well can you do? Personally, I did what I consider a miserable job, especially after the early questions...

Bumgarner hits two home runs, pitches 7 innings, and hands off a 2 run lead. The new $62 million "proven closer" coughs up 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th and the team is 0-1.

Dodgers' opening day: Clayton Kershaw ($33 million) vs. Padres ($28 million)

Quote:
Clayton Kershaw has started six times on opening day. He never has lost. On Monday, he makes what could be his most unusual start on opening day.When Kershaw faces the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium, he will throw the first pitch of a season in which his salary will be greater than all of the Padres. Not just greater than the nine Padres in the starting lineup. Greater than all 25 men on the Padres’ opening-day roster.
The Padres, in a season that might best be described as “extreme tanking,” have committed to pay $28 million to the 25 players on Monday’s active roster. (Here’s the player-by-player breakdown, from the San Diego Union-Tribune.)
Of note: the average major league salary this year is $4.5 million, according to the Associated Press. The highest salary on the Padres: $3 million.

*****

Adding on to this info, Padres have 3 'Rule 5' on their roster, along with 4 catchers (1 of those is a Rule 5, another (Bethancourt) will be used mostly as a pinch hitter and a relief pitcher.0

The team only 1 off day in April and 2 in May - which is why they have 8 relievers and only 3 outfielders...

Lots of teeth-gnashing in Washington over the departure of that closer, but for today, Blake Treinen did a great job taking over, with a 1-2-3 9th and the Nationals won 4-2, behind 7 solid innings from Strasburg, homers from Harper and Adam Lind. Lots of good omens.

Damn Giants always have trouble with the Diamondbacks and Padres. I really hope Matt Cain can get it together. He pitched some really good ball for a lot of years when the team just didn't get him any runs. He's a quality dude who deserved better, but $22 million a year probably eases the hurt, or at least makes his wife real happy.

With the way bullpens are imploding all over the place, how about turning the whole thing over? Have your "closer" pitch the first inning, your setup guy pitch the second, and any of your other bullpen guys pitch the third, then bring in your "starter" for the last 6 innings, when he should still have his good stuff to the end,

That Yankees collapse yesterday was downright painful. Why they still continue to try and coax a good outing from Severino I don't know. (Not to mention Michael Pineda, who has been a great big zero ever since they got him.)

Yankees losing is something I've looked forward to my whole life. My team, the Nationals, allowed 12 runs to the Phils in the first inning last night, an all-time record for runs in the first inning for the Phils, and franchise playing its 142nd season. How Jeremy Guthrie made the Nats rotation is a mystery to me, but clearly he won't be there long. His era is now 135.00

It is not easy to post an ERA of 135.00.

The Giants plan of using castoffs, Triple A talent, and utility players at multiple positions is looking suspect right now. Good thing we have strong starting pitching, Cueto ERA 7.20, Samardzija ERA 10.13, Moore ERA 5.06, Cain ERA 8.31. The closer = Melancon ERA 27.00. Madison Bumgarner's 15 innings pull the team ERA up to 14th in the National League.

Twins fans can be happy for the moment.

Padres beat the Giants again yesterday, evening their record for the year at 3-3. They've given up 34 runs while scoring 19, so this might be the only time all year that they are at .500 or better.
