    Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

    On May 17, 1979, Phillies beat the Cubs 23-22 at Wrigley Field:

    — Both starting pitchers got KO’d after getting only one out.

    — Bill Buckner had 7 RBI for the Cubs, seven years before his infamous World Series error.

    — Dave Kingman hit three homers, knocked in six runs for Chicago.

    — Pete Rose batted 3rd for Philly; he scored four runs, knocked in four.

    — Reliever Rawly Eastwick got the win, shutting Cubs out in 8th/9th innings.

    — Crowd that day in Chicago was only 14,952.

    **********

    Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but…….

    13) I always wonder about guys who get traded during the season; what happens to their stuff?

    Manny Machado went from Orioles to LA last week; who moves his stuff to the west coast? If a player is married, the spouse gets stuck with all that work, but if not, then what?

    Asdrubel Cabrera got traded to the Phillies but they were in Cincinnati over the weekend, are in Boston now. He hasn’t even been in Philadelphia since the trade. Where does he live when he gets there?

    The better players are so wealthy they can pay people to help them out; does the agent do the logistics for the move?

    12) I also wonder how Michael O’Keefe’s acting career would’ve turned out if he hadn’t played golf against Judge Smails in Caddyshack.

    Think about it; he blew the clerkship because he played golf with Ty Webb against the judge; what is Danny Noonan doing now?

    a) Golf pro, is on the Senior Tour.
    b) Bartender in the clubhouse at Bushwood CC.
    c) Went to law school anyway, became a judge
    d) Owns a driving range like Roy McAvoy in Tin Cup

    11) Jacob deGrom has started 21 games this season; six of them were 0-0 after the 5th inning. Mets lost five of those six games.

    10) If I were advising Dez Bryant on how to get another NFL job, the first thing I’d tell him is to shut his bleeping mouth.

    It doesn’t matter if what he says is right; what matters is that Bryant is perceived as a cancer in the locker room and for a marginal player to get signed, he has to fit in, not stand out.

    9) Have been reading online how NFL players get messages on social media from fantasy football owners who have those players on their team and lose games.

    A guy tweeted this to Odell Beckham: “this is my real life too. Remember that dropped pass on 4th down with under 5 to play? Want to refund me my league entry fee?”

    There are thousands of fantasy leagues around the country; make/don’t make a big play, and ton of money changes hands. That doesn’t even take legalized gambling into effect.

    8) On ESPN.com, an interesting piece by Jason Witten, geared towards players:

    Jason Witten’s Social Media Commandments
    1. Don’t read your mentions good or bad — the feedback that matters is from your coach and those you respect.
    2. Don’t reply to a negative; keep your eye above the spectator line.
    3. Negative social media is often not indicative of the real world.
    4. Use social media as a way to stay informed and connect.
    5. Don’t post anything that wouldn’t make your family proud.

    7) Sound wagering advice from Todd Fuhrman (@toddfuhrman) on Twitter:

    “if you plan to bet football this fall and want to make ONE simple change to your betting habits; make it a priority to give yourself multiple lines (outs) to bet into rather than placing all your wagers at just one shop”

    6) We read lot of cruddy stuff about famous people; here is a good thing:

    The LeBron James Family Foundation and the Akron Public Schools opened a new elementary school for at-risk children on Monday. James donated $50M of his own money to the program.

    The I Promise School focuses on educating children from challenging situations or backgrounds. The school will begin with two grades, 3rd and 4th, with plans to expand in the coming years, until it is Grades 1-8.

    The I Promise School has a longer school day and longer school year.

    5) Jets finally signed rookie QB/savior Sam Darnold, which was the smart thing to do. Media at Jets’ camp wasn’t thrilled that Darnold was unavailable for interviews afterwards.

    4) Lions’ coach Matt Patricia, on advice he got on being an NFL head coach:

    “…….Be yourself, make sure the players see who you are, make sure they see the passion, the love for the game, make sure they understand the message.”

    3) Broadcast of Monday’s Blue Jays-A’s game on Oakland radio was commercial-free, with the commercials replaced by memories of late announcer Bill King, a year after his enshrinement in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    2) There are rumors about that Adam Jones blocked a trade from Baltimore to the Phillies. When a player declines to go from a last-place team to a first-place team, if makes you wonder.

    1) Rick Pitino has a book coming out in September that will “lay all his cards on the table” about his time coaching, both in the NBA and in college.

    If you’ve seen Spike Lee’s excellent movie He Got Game, none of the Louisville stuff should be a big surprise. Some of the scenes in He Got Game were similar to the Louisville mess, and that movie was made in 1998!!!!

    I’ll read the book at some point, but what we really need is Pitino on TV analyzing games, so I can learn from him. At least put him in the studio. Please?

    Best and worst MLB starting pitchers to bet on in August
    Marc Lawrence

    Since being traded away from Baltimore, this is the time of year Jake Arrieta is at his best. He might not throw as hard as he used to, but he still knows how to get hitter's out.

    With the MLB trading deadline closed, and the NFL preseason whetting our pigskin palates, the month of August sets the table for the stretch run of the baseball season. The question is which pitchers can we count on to satisfy our tastes, and which ones figure to sour our stomachs? Take a look below.

    Listed below are hurlers that have enjoyed a two-to-one or better success ratio in team-starts over the course of the last three seasons during the month of August. On the flip side, we've also listed pitchers that struggle in August, winning 33% percent or less of their team-start efforts. To qualify, pitchers must have made a minimum of 10 starts, with at least one start each August over the last three years. And for your convenience alongside each record we break down each pitcher’s greatest success or greatest failure rate either home (H) or away (A) within his good or bad month.

    Note: * designates a categorical repeat appearance by this pitcher, maintaining status quo from last season’s August list.

    I’ll be back next month with September’s Good Month Pitchers. Until then, make like legendary singer and songwriter Neil Diamond and enjoy the hot August nights.

    GOOD MONTH PITCHERS

    * Jake Arrieta, Philadelphia Phillies • 15-2 (8-1 A)


    Since being traded away from Baltimore, this is the time of year Jake Arrieta is at his best. He might not throw as hard as he used to, but he still knows how to get hitter's out. He, along with Aaron Nola, will keep Philadelphia in the hunt for an NL East title. After giving up 23 homers last year, Arrieta has done a much better job keeping the ball in the yard with just 11 HRs allowed this season.

    Bartolo Colon, Texas Rangers • 13-5 (7-2 A)

    Though Colon has enjoyed success in August, he was not 45 years old, playing in a small ballpark like Texas and on a bad team. It would be great to see him finish with a flourish, but the fact remains the Rangers are so pitching deficient, they have to depend on the veteran. Amazingly, Colon has played in the majors the same number of years the Braves Ronald Acuna Jr, has been alive (20).

    Danny Duffy, Kansas City Royals • 11-5 (7-1 H)

    After a slow start, the K.C. lefthander had 2.89 ERA in May and June, But July rolled around and Duffy regressed and his ERA is approaching 5.00 again. His command has been awful, already with a career-high in walks for the season and on pace to match or surpass the 27 home runs he conceded two years ago. With this Royals team I do expect this month to be like those of the past for Duffy.

    * Corey Kluber, Cleveland Indians • 14-4 (8-1 H)

    The Cleveland right-hander has been very good, but not quite as good as 2014 and 2017 when he won Cy Young's. The biggest reason why is a balky right knee, which has caused him to leave more pitches up than usual and is why he's already very close to a career-high in home runs allowed with two months remaining. Nevertheless, he is still one the best hurlers in baseball and with his experience and the Indians having a mostly favorable slate this month, the winning should continue.

    Rick Porcello, Boston Red Sox • 10-3 (6-1 H)

    To this point, Rick Porcello's season has been a great deal like previous two. In 2016, Porcello won the Cy Young and was 22-4. Last year, the right-hander was completely the opposite and lost 17 games. This season he's 13-4 and often pitched like he did two seasons ago. But he's also left reminders of how bad he can be with a few incredibly bad performances this year. Expect Porcello to have a fine August, just keep in mind a stinker might also be included.


    BAD MONTH PITCHERS

    James Shields, Chicago White Sox • 5-12 (2-6 H)

    It is really a shame to watch Shields end his career this way. The 36-year is on a team in the midst of rebuilding and at this point of his career he no longer has the needed separation in speed between his pitches to make his once feared change-up effective. Add in he's gone from 3-to-1 K/W ratio to 2-to-1 and it's not hard to imagine he and White Sox will keep losing games.

    MLB

    Tuesday, July 31



    Streaking and Slumping Starting Pitchers

    Streaking:
    Jameson Taillon, Pittsburgh Pirates (7-8, 3.73 ERA, $100)

    Hitting has made up a lot of the talk when it comes to the Pirates recent surge, but the pitching staff is doing their part as well. None more than big right-hander Jameson Taillon.

    The 27-year-old has been dynamite over his last three starts, pitching to a 1.96 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP, while striking out 21 batters, compared to just four walks. Taillon hopes he can keep the Pirates rolling when they host the Cubs tonight. Pittsburgh is a slight -109 favorite.

    Slumping:
    Steven Matz, New York Mets (5-8, 3.79 ERA, $202)

    It's sounding like the Mets Big 3 starting pitchers aren't going anywhere today, in Matz case maybe it's because he's done nothing to help his trade value recently. Matz has a 6.23 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP over his last three starts. The lefty and the Mets are currently moderate +160 road underdogs for today's matchup against the Nationals.

    Big Sexy Consistency

    Bartolo Colon takes the mound for Texas tonight and the ageless wonder has been the model of consistency this season, but that hasn’t meant good things for Rangers fans. The veteran right-hander has given three or more runs in 10 of his last 12 starts. In each those 12 starts he’s allowed at least five hits and seven or more in 10 of those 12 contests.

    Take a hard look at the Diamondbacks Over 8.5 hits (-135) tonight.

    Birds Flying Over The Bay

    The Blue Jays visit the A's in a matchup of teams taking an opposite approach to the deadline. The Jays are focusing on the future and unloading their tradeable assets, while the A's are making the push for the playoffs.

    Besides a bit of a power outage in Colorado of all places the A's bats have been hot since the All-Star break and resumed that in Monday's 10-1 win in the series opener and get to face Sam Gaviglio in Game 2. The right-hander seems to be hitting a rookie wall according to his 7.13 ERA in his last four starts. Plus, the Jays bullpen is in shambles as they trade off their relievers and it could be worse by tonight. Toronto can also hit a bit. The Over 8.5 is worth a look.

    Full Nelson

    The Phillies and Red Sox continue their battle of division leaders at Fenway Park tonight and starters Jake Arrieta and Drew Pomeranz may get a hand from the man behind the plate. That man is Jeff Nelson and the Under is 12-3 in the last 15 games he has been calling balls and strikes.

    Nelson has seen a total of just 6.89 total runs scored per game and has a strike rate pf 62.9 percent in 2018. With at least one very good pitcher on the mound, the Under 10 has some value here.
