"If you must, you can't prevent you from purchasing a ticket, but we can prevent you from buying a T-shirt. While we're here, that we will not stand for, you can buy a T-shirt somewhere else. Yeah. Bring it into the ball. But I'll be damned. If you're going to be selling shirts in the ballpark, it just sort of surprised me, I guess, because generally when there's money to be made, like someone will make it. Yes. Obviously, there is money to be made here. And it's not just Dodgers fans on giant's turf. I mean, you know, you're telling me you can't get a Yankees cap at the trap or something, you know? Like, sure. There's got to be a market for that. I guess in the interest of general baseball, you would want people to be able to buy stuff that would represent their team wherever they are, wherever they go to a ballpark. Yeah. We will find a way to spend some money a and also just display our affiliation and deepen our attachment to baseball, but I guess I get it that also you want to feel like you're protecting your turf. If the team is sanctioning the vendor and clearly it is that the team can decide who gets to sell stuff in their ballpark and what they get to sell, then I certainly understand why they would say, hey, don't sell stuff this. Our rivals, so that everyone will be walking around in our rivals gear and showing up on TV and our rivals gear. Showing us up. Yeah, I share your surprise that it is a place that has proven itself to be somewhat immune from the capitalist impulse. But I think that that's kind of, that's kind of nice, you know, that you get to, you know, it adds to your sense of place that that is not a place where you see your rivals stuff being sold, right? But it is, this is our place. This is home and we get to say what it is. Here are the players, the featured players on the Mariners, team store website, ichiro, fine, Felix, fine. Kyle Seeger kind of weird Adam Fraser excuse you a oh jeez Suarez, great season, but what? Luis Castillo cool, Carlos Santana? Really? And then you have the players section, which is somehow different than future players, don't know. Ken griffey junior Mitch hanker Robbie ray ty France, Logan Gilbert, all of those are fine. Dylan Moore, I mean sure, Carlos Santana, again, Kurt cassell, Jake lamb, who was just DFA. And Marco Gonzalez. Do you know who is notably absent from both of those lists? Didn't hear you say Julio. I'm going to say Julio. It's kind of weird that there's no Julio in that list. Don't you think? It's also weird that there's no JP Crawford in that list, right? Anyway, I just, I think that you wanted to talk about the feeling of home, and I was willing to indulge you, but mostly this has become an opportunity for me to say, if an addict to a better job, like all of this stuff looks like you're at a corporate golf retreat and it bumps me out. So those are today's ethical philosophical dilemmas about baseball. In other news, well, first a quick Joey manassas update. Still good. Yeah. Out hitting one Soto and one Soto and Josh bell combined really did not think that would continue really thought that we would have to just like mention that while it was true and hope that it didn't change immediately. Wrote about him, my piece was published on September 2nd, and I was like, well, this has been fantastic, but how long can this keep up? I've got to get this article out before he slumps or something gets hot and the fun fact is not true anymore that Vanessa has outplayed both of the players who were traded and whom he was replacing when he was called up. I mean, it's still true. And people are treating him with some respect, some fear. Yeah. So as people were tagging us on Twitter to note that the braves were intentionally walking manassas, they free past them a couple of times in the past couple of games to load the bases in front of Luke voigt and then when they finally decided not to do that with a runner on first, he homered. Yep. So they should have intentionally walked him. That time too, I guess. Just based on the results and he is still handily out hitting one Soto as a padre. So that's pretty great. I did not think that would actually last throughout the season. I was like, the fact that this is lasted even since the trade for the first month after the trade is amazing and miraculous. It can't continue, but it actually has to the point where they might actually finish the season with that continuing to be true. So love it. It's a really, it's just a very fun and silly remarkable thing, and it lets me tweet exclamation points at you. So I'm all for it. I think I hope he continues forever. I guess I hope it continues forever, but only if. I hope that the NASA of it continues forever to be clear. Yeah, no, I want one soda to be like, you know, Juan Soto, as we know him, and as we have come to expect him to be, and also it would be so cool if we look back and we're like, you know, wald Soto as advertised in the long term, but get a load of this Joey meniscus all he needed was an opportunity and he is want Soto two. That would be delightful. Yeah. Luke Voight has also handily out hit Josh bell, which is also sort of funny. Poor Padres. Poor Padres. They're in better shape than the nationals overall. This is what the nationals have for you. Just gotta let them have this for now because there's not a whole lot else to be happy about on that team right now. Yeah, but you don't know this, Ben, but I am three for three in not doing screaming sneezes into the microphone so far as we're recording. It's really great. Thank you. Yeah, you're welcome. And appreciate it. I'm sure. Yeah. So I want to talk a little bit briefly about the AL central. We should probably do an AL central leadership update. Yeah. Just because we've had a couple change of regimes. So the tigers have a new head of baseball operations, Scott Harris. Who was poached from the Giants and also formerly of the cubs. And then the royals also have a new leader, although it was someone who was already there because what happened is state and more is out the door. So this is on the one hand not surprising on the other hand it's very surprising because it seems like that might very well be a lifetime appointment. So this is notable news we lost John Daniels last his job this year, one of the longest tenured readers of a baseball operations group and then you had Dayton Moore in that group as well and he's gone now. So it turns out that just being bad at baseball for quite a while can actually get date more fired. Yeah, it's an odd, it's an odd thing because on the one hand you feel like I kind of thought he'd outlast us all, right? Yeah. We have talked a lot about how it hasn't felt like they have a great sense of where they really are in their competitive window, but we have appreciated their can do attitude and you know there have been some weird aspects of date.

"Dot com, use the coupon code while 20 to get a discount of $20 on an 80 year subscription, not just for MLB, you can also sign up for other sports versions of stat head if you want. And the great thing that is happening now is that we have listeners who have availed themselves of this opportunity and are now stat head subscribers. And so they are often writing in with their own step less or like answering their own stat blast questions. So Darren wrote in on Monday to note that the brewers Ethan small and the cubs met swarmer faced off as the starting pitcher in that contest and they were each making their major league debut. So we were meeting multiple major leaguers in that game, and they were both starting. And so he wanted to know it seems rare that two starting pitchers would be making their major league debut in the same game. Well, that is stat edible. And he posted about that in the stat blast channel in the Discord group and he is a stat head subscriber to and people walked him through how you find that. And so I will link to those results, but that was the 29th time at least since 1901 that two starting pitchers in the same game we're making their major league debut in that same game. And there's some notable starters who have made debuts in games like that, Jacob de Grom, against chase whitley, JR Richard against Jim Willoughby, Danny maclaine against Fritz ackley, bob forsch against Tom Carroll. It seems like the matchup that yielded the most cumulative career war between the two pitchers was Gaylord Perry against Sammy Ellis in 1962, with a combined for about a hundred war, mostly from mister Perry. We also got a submission along those lines, someone just basically did a full stat blast for us. They should start their own podcast, but listener, Jonathan, a recent subscriber and Patreon supporter and stad head subscriber said that he was watching Sunday's reds giants game, and he noticed that at the start of the 8th inning, Darren ruff entered as a pinch hitter for the Giants and struck out, the Giants batted around, scored 6 runs and rough got a second chance in that inning, but struck out again to end the inning, and then he was replaced by Kurt cassell, so he never took the field. And so Jonathan wondered how many times has that happened before a player participating in a game solely as a pinch hitter and striking out twice. It seems like it would be hard to do because it requires your team to bet around and since you're accounting for two of the three outs on your own that requires at least 7 of the other 8 players in the lineup to reach base safely in that inning. So he got himself a stad head subscription. Instead of asking us to answer this, he did it himself self sufficient. Appreciated this and I hope he used the coupon code while 20 turns out that this was only the third time, at least since 1901 in MLB history that this happened. First accomplished by John Canelo, may 20th, 1990 for Pittsburgh against Atlanta and then Jeff manto for Cleveland September 14th, 1997 against the White Sox, cangelosi was the only other player to ever lead off and end the inning with strikeouts Mentos for strikeout followed. A leadoff single by Omar vizquel. So if we're willing to add on one more qualification we can state that Darren ruff is the first player in MLB history to appear solely as a pinch hitter and strike out to lead off and end an ending in a team victory. So that's a lot of qualifiers, but canoes see pirates lost that 1990 game. So that was fun. And then he went further down the rabbit hole with John cangelosi, who's someone who had a lot of pitch head appearances and multiple plate appearances in those games. I'll throw that in a Google Doc and link to it just so you can see the full stat blast that Jonathan did, but again, stad head dot com. Anyway, the actual step blast is from Carson, who says, this will probably be the most useless question I've ever asked. But that doesn't stop me from wanting to know the answer. What is the most consecutive innings by a single pitcher in which he threw the same number of pitches in each inning? I have no issue with this including relief pitchers spanning multiple games if that makes the answer more interesting, but my question was initially thought up with starters in single games in mind. I sent this question to Lucas pastor laris, listener and baseball perspective, writer and researcher, and he did a little deep dive with his retro sheet database, so he went back to 1988, which is the beginning of reliable pitch by pitch data. He did not count intentional balls as pitches to keep things consistent with the way it works now, but that doesn't change anything in terms of the leader. And he found the answer is melito Perez. Perez in June of 1991, so in one single game, he entered as a reliever he was sort of a swingman that season. He was in the bullpen mostly, but he made some starts, so on June 15th, 1991, Ramon Garcia of the White Sox had a disaster start, he gave up 5 runs in anything in the third, so moledo Perez came in, and he threw 7 and two thirds shutout innings to finish that game for the White Sox, did not allow a run, one walk, three hits, 8 strikeouts, so excellent inning by melito, but he threw 12 pitches in each inning of that game. So one of the innings, I guess, was partial because he came in with one out already, but if we count that, actually, we don't have to count that because the record is 7, 7 innings, he threw 12 pitches a piece. So each of his full innings that day, he took 12 pitches, and then, in his next outing, June 19th, he came in in the 9th as a reliever to finish the game, and he threw one inning and he threw 12 pitches in that inning as well. So, the record within a single game is 7 consecutive innings with the same pitch count by molido pairs and the record across multiple games, any span actually is also mojito Paris. No one has done it even 7 times over multiple spans, but 8 consecutive innings with the same pitch count is the record by Molina Perry is in 1991 and it makes sense that it would be about 12 probably because if you had a very high pitch count, then you would run out of pitches, probably, and it would also mean that you were getting in trouble and getting hit around a bit, so you wouldn't be left in long enough to rack up a long streak, the average going back to 88 has been about 16 pitches per inning. So 12 is probably sort of the sweet spot. The second place finisher is real Cormier in 2000 across multiple games. He threw 6 consecutive innings with 13 pitches apiece, so that's the closest anyone has gotten and in the same game. It's a tie for 5 consecutive innings. And this season, the most anyone has done is for consecutive innings. So this is actually kind of tough to do and kind of have to sustain for any extended stretch of innings. Mojito Perez is your all time leader, at least you're on record leader. Interesting. All right, that will do it for today. All right, if you follow ups from last week, we got a lot of responses to our hypothetical email about a player suffering from glass S syndrome, specifically Ricky Henderson, if Henderson had a glass ass, could he still have been a successful base dealer? Well, it's not quite in keeping with the lighthearted spirit of our answer to that question. But as a number of people pointed out, one of Henderson's contemporaries in a great base dealer in his own right, perhaps the best ever percentage based dealer Tim raines did supposedly have a glass ass of sorts for a little while, reigns acknowledged using cocaine during the 1980s, specifically 1982, and he is reputed to have sometimes kept the vial in his back pocket, which would prevent him from sliding foot first..
