"luis urias" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

"So Jason noted earlier this year last night, the first MLB player from Palau debuted for the pirates in climate risk for memory, the pirates also debuted the first South African player gift and gope and the first Lithuanian player, dovey Dustin, and a little research brought up the first U.S. virgin islander if we're counting that as well, Joe Christopher was a pirate. I'm guessing this isn't the record, but that got me thinking, what is the record for the franchise that debuted the most countries into MLB? Cool. Yeah. So a few caveats from Ryan here. This includes all non 50 U.S. state locations, so it's other countries, but it also includes Puerto Rico, Guam, et cetera, just like historically in a baseball sense. Those places have been listed separately rightly or wrongly and so if you woke up these things on baseball reference, they're kind of a separate category and they're also some places here that may or may not be considered countries depending on who you ask, but we won't get into the politics of all that. If baseball reference listed them, Ryan included them. And he notes that one of those places is at sea. And famously, Ed pere, who played for buffalo's federal league team in 1914, was born in the Atlantic Ocean in 1888, or not in the Atlantic. I was going to say probably like on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean, right? It's not an atlantean or a merman or anything. I have to make a new shirt. On the Atlantic Ocean or yeah, more precisely, I suppose, on a ship that was on the Atlantic Ocean. And the other was Frank Thompson, who played for Brooklyn's national association team in 1875 as the only player born in Portugal. And those are the two countries that had only one player and they were non AL or NL and this is also not counting the Negro leagues yet. And Ryan notes this is also only counting it debut if it was for a currently operating MLB franchise, but including past incarnations of that franchise if it changed teams or city names, et cetera. And I will add another caveat, which is that bly mattress is the first MLB player of palauan descent, but he was born in Las Vegas, so he doesn't actually show up here because this is just birthplaces. We can not do dissent, unfortunately, VF baseball reference. But 11 franchises have never debuted a player who was the first to be born in that country. So the rays, the mets, the Phillies somehow, even though the Phillies have been around forever, they've never had one. That's surprising to me. It is, yeah. The nationals, which includes the expos, but even so, they haven't. The brewers, the royals, the tigers, also surprising, because they go way back. The angels, the Mariners, the Diamondbacks, and the rockies. And so if we're going to give you the most ever, it's the cubs. The cubs have had 7 players who were the first to be born in a place according to baseball reference. So chick Pedro es, although apparently his name may actually have been chick Pedro, was the first Cuban born player and debuted in 1902. And then we have John stood drone ski, who was the first from the Czech Republic. He debuted in 1879 and John hausmann first from the Netherlands debuted in 1894, skell roach debuted in 1899. He was from Poland, Iran bee Thorne, of course, from Puerto Rico. He is 1942. He played for the cubs, and then Robin Jennings first Singapore born player. He debuted in 1996. So those are the cubs and then you have the Yankees Orioles giants and a's with 5 apiece. The braves with four the twins pirates and guardians and Dodgers with three apiece and then you can go down the list. But I will link to that spreadsheet too if you want to see your team or you want to see who counts or doesn't count here according to baseball reference and you can parse it whichever way you want. Interesting. Yeah, it would be kind of cool to be the first from your birthplace or Bruce. Yeah. I think that would be a nice honor to have. I agree. All right, step by number 9. Daven, Patreon supporter. In the braves and Dodgers game on Sunday. This was a little while back. Both of the closers ended up blowing the save. As you may know, both of those closers are the all time saves leaders for the team they were pitching against. So this was Craig kimbrell and Kenley Jansen. So cool. Kimbrell now with the Dodgers, Janssen now with Atlanta, but kimbrell is the all time saves leader for the braves and Janssen is the all time saves leader for the Dodgers, and they were each facing the respective team that they are the all time savings leader of, but they are no longer with that team. So Daven wanted to know, is there any precedent for this as there ever been a situation where both of the all time saves leaders pitched against the team, they held the record with and subsequently blew the save. So not only is there no precedent for that by Ryan's count, this is the only time in history that two all time saves leaders faced their former teams in the same game period. And as far as Ryan cattell and his, I didn't see any examples of this, but it seems like no one noticed this or pointed this out. There were a lot of people noting that kimbrough blew the save against the braves and Jensen blew the save against the Dodgers, but it doesn't seem to have been noticed the fact that they appeared at all in this game together was unprecedented. So that's kind of cool kind of a fun fact that this is the first time that that had happened and some other somewhat fun facts that Ryan noted, the player who has the most appearances against a former team as that team's all time saves leader is Tug McGraw. He played for the mets from 1965 to 1974 and pretty quickly became the saves leader for that franchise, which was young at the time. He then played for the Phillies for ten years and was the Met's all time leader for the entirety of that time, and he faced the Met's 59 times. Second is John Franco, who set the reds all time record in 1989, his last year with that team, and then he played for the mets through 2004, the same year that Danny graves passed him to take over the reds record, but in the meantime, he faced the reds 45 times. In all, a franchise leader in saves has faced that team 788 times, but two players have never done it in the same game until now. Who knew? Wow, that's wild. All right, step last number ten. Matt says Luis urias just struck out twice in the same inning. This was June 15th, the top of the 5th, and he did so for the second and third outs. How often has one player been responsible for two outs in the same inning and how often have those both been strikeouts and how often have those been for the last two outs of the inning? It seems like an incredible feat of failure. And I passed this on to Ryan and I said it, it's not that unusual for one player to make two outs in the same inning, but it did seem somewhat unusual to me for those to be the last two outs beginning as opposed to, say, the first and third, you'd think that just given the way that batting orders work that that would be more common. So Ryan says, no one has ever come to the plate three times in the same inning and gotten all three outs. There have been players who have batted three times, but they haven't made all three outs that hasn't happened yet. We can add that to the list of things that have not happened in a game that would be kind of cool to see. Not cool for that player. There have been 4400 42 times, I suppose entering this season where a player has been up to bat two times and caused out both of those times. 4385 of those 4442 times the player got one out in each plate appearance, 57 of those times, the player was in some sense responsible for all three outs because one of the plate appearances was a double play. So that has happened almost 60 times. Of the 4385 times that the player has made two outs and two plate appearances, 3904 of them were the first and third outs, which is what I was suspecting. 247 times the player made the first and second outs and 234 times the player made the second and third outs so that is pretty uncommon. The most recent examples of a batter getting the second and third out in an inning before this year. I'll just give you the last one.

"luis urias" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

"So I think that there's a chance that he is kind of this year's Freddy Peralta where yeah, you have the big two, but then also you have this other guy who is a like an all star caliber pitcher just kind of right next to them that everyone talks about less because his teammates are so talented. Well, I guess maybe we already kind of touched on this with ashby, but are there any rookies that strike you beyond him and or is this a Ricky eligible anymore? But as potential reinforcement there? No, that should be. I think that he's both the most important rookie and one of the more interesting rookies in the majors. Like, I don't know what role they'll use him in this year. I think they will attempt to use him as a reliever. Yeah. But they don't have a lot of depth starting pitching wise. They have 5 starters who I think are great, and we have them towards the very top four positional power rankings for that reason. But if one of those guys gets hurt, it's even small or maybe ashby. Yeah. And he can start. He started a lot in the miners before they decided to use him as a multi reliever. He struck out 30% of his batters in the majors last year, we project him for an ERA that's below its three 5 6. That's kind of crazy. He's three. He hasn't thrown very many pitches in the major leagues, and we're already pretty sure he's going to be great. His sliders completely unhittable. I mean, if he was your closer, you'd say, great, that's awesome. I have a better closing situation than, I don't know, 20 teams in baseball. And he's their third best reliever, and I think he could probably be their third best starter. He's very talented. I don't really know if he has the pitch mix or the stamina to hold up the starting long-term. But having kind of a Swiss Army knife like that just seems like it's going to be really useful for them on the pitching side this year. He can't hit and you know it does still help to add pitch up to an already good pitching team. But they've really just need some batters. Or they need Christian Yelich to figure it out. Yeah, I mean, they had a 6 starter rotation last year. I don't know whether they've officially said that they're going to stick with that this year or not, but having someone like ashby who could potentially slot in there just to protect everyone's arms and keep the innings workloads manageable. Maybe they bring that back, it certainly worked well last year, but yes, as you were saying, the big storyline, the question is the offense. We've already gone over it, but it's really what will yell at be, what will Europe be? I know that the brewers relieved their hidden coach and assistant hitting coach of their duties last year. Don't know if that's going to fix anyone, but hopefully those guys will be better. I guess, you know, if Christian Yelich could have a second breakout, that'd be nice, I guess now we would call a second breakout a bounce back. But something closer, even if it's just in between his recent and his MVP, like one of the best players in baseball or best player in baseball level, that would be a big boon to this batting order. Yeah, if he can put the ball in the air again, I think you'll be able to do it. He still hits the ball hard. He still has great plate this one. That's always been one of his kind of sneaky best skills. He doesn't very often, and he really knows the strike zone. But he just hit the ball on the ground a bunch, and when he was on the Marlins, that's kind of, that was kind of the book on him, right? It was going to be hard for him to ever be a star, like a true MVP winning star, because he couldn't put the ball in the air. And even though he hit the crap out of it, his swing was just geared to hit it on the ground or low line drives. Then for two years, he started hitting the ball in the air, and he was the best player in baseball, or at least in the NL. And now he just stopped and I don't know, I don't know how you fix that. I don't know how you fix it without getting into his head. But if he starts hitting the ball in the air again, this team looks a lot better. And if he doesn't, yeah, I mean, they're still probably division favorites, but they don't have a lot of margin. Right. And we've seen what this team without the ability to score can do in the postseason and the answer is not very much. We know what that ends up looking like when they have to be dealing with teams that aren't just in the central. It's 5 game series. You know. Yeah, that helped. Brandon Woodruff can hit a home run off Clayton Kershaw. But I don't know, they could pinch hit them, but yeah. He might be, I think I might prefer woodroof to some of the people they'll be running out there in big spots. It's dire. Yeah. Well, I'm really curious like what version of a domus organic get. I also like him a lot, but like the contrast between what he was able to do in Tampa versus what he did once he moved to Milwaukee is pretty stark and I don't think we can attribute all of that to the lights being a problem. I was going to say contact lenses thing, yeah. So there's like that part of it, you know, it's just this concerning when some of the highlights from last year are themselves at least subject to you would imagine some modest amount of regression, if not, if not more than that, so. I think Luis urias is the place where they're going to get offense that I mean, they got last year actually, but they weren't counting on it. Right. He batted almost 600 times hit two 49, three 45, four 45. That's pretty good. That's like 10% above average. I think he'll probably do that again. That was that trade is kind of panned for the brewers when he didn't work out in 2020, but I think it's going to work out really well. And he can play second third and short. But yeah, that when you're like, oh, here's the highlight of our offense. Middle infielder who hit 10% above average. You just need more. I actually read a report that even though David stern's is signed through the 2023 season, if the brewers were to contradict Dave Roberts and win the pennant this year, he would then become a free agent or at least be eligible to become a free agent, which I guess would be the opposite of a silver lining, but on the other hand, what do you want David stern's for if not to win a pennant? So I guess you live with the idea that Steve Cohen or someone might go out and get David Stearns if he gets you to the World Series, then he has done his job in Milwaukee. Yeah, absolutely. All right, take your pick. Reds are cubs because they are neck and neck in the fan cross playoff ads like 75.2 projected wins versus 75.3 7.6.
