That would certainly explain why he lost his shit so quickly.

I feel like Zunino's WPA should get credit for the final 12.2% swing in win expectancy.

When your entire bullpen is dominating it's hard to get too upset about not bringing the best reliever into high-leverage situations.

In total or as a fraction of his homers? He also has the most total homers by any Mariner since 2011.

Except for the times he hits it over the fence, which he does about as frequently as anyone but Seager and Zunino.

That would have been extra bases if the A's first baseman was 5'9 like he was at the start of the game.

At least a Byrd should be a better defender than a Willing Ham.

Yeah, it's only really an issue for players that are overpaid but still doing their job well enough (e.g. closers on a big contract).

He has a better ZiPS projection than Hart the rest of the way.

Not unless we want to start hearing about "lite-hitting backup catchers".

I suppose I could have read a few comments down before posting.

Still an interesting choice - I wonder if they're thinking about continuing to stretch him out now that he's fairly buried as closer depth.

I bet the Yankees' system has some pretty nice training facilities, they have to be worth something.

I think I'm at the point of being ready to drink when "Cano is lazy" is said ironically as well.

He'd just stand there for a while looking expectantly at Furbush or whoever, before sadly walking away.

It will presumably be Maurer to start with, but it would be pointless fun to have Rodney pitch the first inning

He made a good effort: turned and ran back toward 1B to try to avoid the tag long enough for Cano to beat the double play.

It will be an interesting calculation if it's still close. If you're a game or two ahead for the second wild card, do you bump Felix back

I'm almost disappointed that his fielding-independent numbers are getting better (he's well above a 1:1 K:BB now).

If that's how it works, can we get Kurt Suzuki too? Start turning these strikeouts into baserunners?

Or, if you're concerned it will be infiltrated by outsiders, I would suggest a plain sheet of paper.

Not informative given that Buck did a lot of his catching with Erasmo or Maurer on the mound.

Maybe they delayed announcing Jesus Sucro's promotion until the name change became legal.
