Typical Tom Kelly Game

9 posts in this topic

Is it just me or was last night's game a Typical Tom Kelly game.

Slowey throws only 92 pitches and they pull him after 6 innings, with the score 1-0 Twins. He allowed only 5 hits and 7 strikeouts. Why pull him that early. He could have let that run just as easy as Crain did. Slowey was in control of the game. Yes he was due to hit in the top of the 7th, but I have seen him hit and I believe it was Lamb that pinch hit. Lets see Slowey or Lamb batting in a 1-0 game with Slowey in control. I would take Slowey. Bert must have been livid, and Slowey got nothing out of his effort.

It was the right call to take Slowey out and let the bullpen have it. It was the right call to put in a pinch hitter in place of the pitcher. Of course if you want to loose games then make these choices on emotion - you'll feel good but your record will be worse.

It was a 50 50 chance in my book I agree, but not after only 6 innings. Would they have pulled Johan. Don't rock the boat as it may come back to sink you, and it almost did.

Why would you have pulled him at that time.

It is the National League way. Unless the pitcher has a not hitter, and even then depending on the score, if he comes to bat in the later innings, he is pinch hit for.

Yep. People make these claims that the NL, with the pitcher hitting, "creates strategy".

It doesn't create strategy. It dictates it. In the AL, you make pitching changes to get the pitcher/hitter matchup you want. In the NL, you make pitching changes because the pitcher is scheduled to hit...and ain't nobody want to see that $#!7.

Let's just hope he can win two championships like Kelly did too!!!

Last I checked it was the last two for a major sports team since the Lakers??????

Ouch!!

I guess I am not knocking it, but Slowey was cruising right along and with a good pitch count, 1 more inning wasn't going to hurt, besides Slowey is a good hitter, and he only accounts for 1 out while batting.

ahhh yes, the art of the double switch.....

They say that gardy is one of the best in the AL at playing the NL style of ball.

    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
