Maybe MLB should institute a 5 run limit until the last inning.

HA! HA!

First you green a thread with Derek Jeter's herpes statistics.

Then you green a thread calling the Yankees "little leaguers".

I can't seem to spin this in any way that isn't disturbing to some degree.

And the plate ump had money on the Angels.

Both labels are correct

Pretty fair Little League comparison, since Laz Diaz is about as mature as the 15-year-olds that umpire those games.

My stat line as a pitcher in Little League. 8 batters 6 walks. 2/3 inning.

I told my coach I could pitch because I'd seen it done, and it didn't look hard.

This scene from The Simpsons seems apt:

-I thought you said you could read lips.
-I thought I could.

I'm pretty sure I saw the Blue Jays walk even more batters in a row against the Twins this year.

I said something to that effect a couple of weeks ago in a thread and got told by someone "they're not that bad." I love being proven right to random strangers.

Obviously the Yankees pitching staff is kind of a disaster right now, but Laz Diaz was squeezing them like a nuclear-powered blood pressure tester. You know it's bad when Girardi gets himself tossed from the game - it doesn't happen all that often.

But the Blue Jays are good now (now = last 2 days) and the Yankees suck. It is truly a Golden Age.

They're a game and a half out of last place.

But what about the Vulcan Logicians or the Deep Space Niners?

/Death to the opposition!

Watching the game, LAz Diaz is by far the shiattest umpire i've ever seen. Deadspin showed a graph on his balls and strikes, the entire night he averaged only 33% that were in the strike zone were called strikes.

The man needs to get glasses or Fark off.

I went and looked at the replay of the pitch that set Girardi off and it looks to me like he picked the wrong pitch to get worked up about. It hit the catcher's glove near the ground but only after a sharp downward break. To my eyes it was below the knees when entering the strike zone, but not by much -- a bad but not egregious call. In any event, Ken Singleton's criticism that it "hit the ground" is off the mark.

Not having seen the game, I can't say whether the issue was inconsistent strike zones; maybe the same pitch was called a ball when thrown by a Yankee?

Let's just say M.C. Escher could have drawn a more logical strike zone.

I was a little league pitcher for years. I never walked dudes. My proudest moment was 15 year old all-star state tournament - complete game, no walks.

/ I got shelled in the semifinal game but no one else could get the ball over the plate so what are you gonna do.

Your coach didn't do his job.  If he knew what coaching was about, he'd have tried every single person on your team as a pitcher first, and identified the people who could pitch, the people who can be trained to pitch, and the people who aren't going to pitch.

The only time as a coach I've put in kids that I knew couldn't pitch was when the game was a foregone conclusion anyway, last one of the season, and we couldn't play our good pitchers because they had run up against their maximum pitch count.

Situation:  We've got the last game of the regular season.  If we win, we get 3rd place and a decent seed in the play-offs, and also the boys get a trophy.  If we lose, no trophy unless we do well in the playoffs, and we get a worse seed.  The play-off game is 2 days away, and any pitcher who has more than 35 pitches needs 2 whole days of rest.

We've got one exceptional pitcher and one very good pitcher.

So that last game, we used up both of our pitchers, running them past the pitch counts where he could pitch in the play-off game, in order to guarantee our boys got 3rd place in regular season play, and a trophy.

The play-off game, we just rotated in anyone who wanted to pitch.

That was first year minors, though, and the other coach and I really didn't understand the importance of identifying and developing pitchers early, because we had just moved up from bantams, which is coach-pitch.

This year, we started working on it early.  In addition to getting 2 known pitchers in the draft, we've worked on developing others as best we can, and we now have 4 kids who can pitch, and a couple more who with a bit more practice will be decent enough to put in.

Oh hey, good news, Yankees fans! Pineda's suspension is over today.
Bad news, he goes immediately to the DL with a back strain.

Yeah. I watched the clusterf*ck of a Yankees game last night, and couldn't help but feel their pain. Watching that Jays game was the worst thing I've seen in a long time.

How about this then, ill let Angel Hernandez umpire my games, you get stuck with a guy called C.B. Bucknor.

Between Bucknor and Hernandez its a toss up of who gets voted the worse umpire, only poor Jim Joyce even gets mentioned because of that one blown perfect game call.
Laz Diaz however, got pissed off at Yankees Catcher Russel Martin once, because Martin earned his right to throw baseballs back to the pitcher, diaz scoffed him and has been an exceptional piece of shiat ever since this has happened - not only to Martin, but to the Yankees regardless.

I'm sorry but from what I've seen, both Hernandez and Bucknor have had consistant strike zones while the home plate umpire for the Yankees since 2012 - the worst ratio on the list? Diaz.
Most teams know which umpires are going to give them shiat, its a common fact the strike zone suddenly "expands" or "shrinks" when that umpire is calling it, however the Yankees have always had class towards umpires, and for good reason, pissing off an umpire doesn't end well for a team.

The only exception is Bucknor and Hernandez who from long as I can remember, had the worst ratio in baseball and voted the worse year after year.
