Dreamcast 86: Knock On Wood

In by Rice Cube107 Comments

The word of the day was injuries as there are a lot of pitchers hitting the injured list through various ailments, and we talk a bit about that on this Dreamcast, along with our praises and thoughts about the Cubs starting this season off strongly against some tough competition (not the Rockies).

    I guess the gist would be that any use at this point is “overuse” because the arm might not be able to take it

    No time for love/series preview, Dr. Jones, so just the pitching matchups

    Monday: Javier Assad vs Yu Darvish, 8:40 CT
    Tuesday: Ben Brown(?) vs Joe Musgrove, 9:05 PM CT
    Wed: Cyle Hendricks vs Dylan Cease, 5:40 PM CT

    Selfishly enjoying the later start times

    BVS,

    I only work with the photons that you don’t want to touch you, unfortunately. At least, not for very long (dying laughing)

    berselius,

    More seriously, IIRC photons having mass would mess up a bunch of things since it would mean that the speed of light is an upper bound instead of an actual speed, so you’d have things like red light moving more slowly than blue light. or similar effects for xrays and gamma rays. But when you get to that level of particle physics all units are in eV and it hurts my brain (dying laughing)

    Assad’s nickname should be The Prestige, because there is simply no explanation for how he escapes like that.

    I gotta think they send Cuas down at this point. If you can’t trust a guy with an enormous lead, he’s taking up a valuable roster spot.

    Perkins,

    Agree. And they need a spot, maybe two, to refuel the pen. Could bring Keegan Thompson up. Or 60-day Merryweather and bring up Carl Jr or other. I don’t really see Wesneski coming up, except that he probably will because I think he won’t.

    Rice Cube:
    I was always under the impression that photons being light meant they had no mass, which is why they could travel at the speed of light

    I used to be light. But I still had mass. I’d like to be a little lighter now, but I can’t find the spark to lose weight.

    berselius,

    At least, I like Cuas just as much as Edwards/Thompson/Wesneski. They need a fresh arm though so I guess it might as well be wesneski since he can go more innings.

    I’ve faxed acknowledgement to 1.618-033-9887 but you should know this has caused me to spiral.

    BVS,

    Send another fax to

    +2 718-281-8284

    and you should rise back out, though don’t stay on the line for too long

    The must be a limit to how long we can keep this going. But at least we’re on brand for the natural ugh of OV.

    berselius,

    Are MiLB pitcher usages way different than in the majors though? And I guess the other consideration is not every MiLBer can throw 95+ so that would skew the health status numbers some.

    So we know Mervis is pretty good against AAA, but let’s see if the next time he is given a shot, he can translate that to MLB

    White Sox will have gone four seasons without a legitimate manager. It’s amazing. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be a fan of much less a player on that team.

    A) Don’t run on Cody.
    B) Love that tag by Morel.
    C) Or do, or don’t, I can’t tell you what to do.

    BVS,

    Someone made the point that certain pitchers optioned to the minors need to spend a certain amount of time down before they could be recalled at the beginning of the season so that might be it

    berselius,

    A lot of people blaming last night on the first guy out of the pen, but I feel like we need to remember that correlation does not prove Cuasation.
