Ichiro Murph.
Only in today's America can policy be based on the notion that the rich have too little and the poor have too much.

Pete was a random thought that came through what very little is left of my brain.

No one was better positioned than the Mets to determine whether Murphy's increased production beginning in mid-2015 was a random fluke or permanent and long-lasting based on structural changes to his hitting approach.

Now you can't get a Win AND a Save so Harvey's theoretical 'W' would take precedence over an 'S' but, had he come in with a lead and then left without it, there's nothing stopping that from being a 'BS'


1-- Yes, but wouldn't that have to be an extra inning game? Otherwise, a six or seven inning save means a two or three inning win for the starting pitcher, which isn't allowed.

Here's a strange fact pattern. The starter pitches one inning. The next pitcher pitches just the second inning and leaves with a one run lead. The next reliever pitches to game's end. There is no more scoring after the second inning. In that situation, the official scorer can award the second pitcher with the Win and the third pitcher (7 IP's) with the save. Of course, the scorer should award the seven inning pitcher with the Win, but technically, you could have a seven inning save in a nine inning game here.

2 -- But Harvey can't get the Save no matter what because he'd have to pitch to game's end for the Save, and Syndergaard isn't eligible for the Win.


As expected, Harvey wasn't charged with a Blown Save. A pitcher can't blow a Save unless there's some other pitcher's Win to protect, which Syndergaard didn't qualify for. The best way to summarize our discussion of last night is, I think, as follows: If the starting pitcher isn't eligible for the Win because he pitched less than five innings, then the next pitcher in can never be charged with a Blown Save (or awarded a Save): in that instance, however, the third pitcher in is eligible for a Save/Blown Save.

It's theoretically possible for a pitcher entering the first inning to be awarded/charged with a Save/Blown Save. He'd have to be at least the third pitcher appearing for his team in that game, though.

I was really joking when I asked that question. I'm glad it provided some substance to the thread.
