    Saturday’s Den: Mixing in some Pac-12 football knowledge in with baseball

    Mets 3, Padres 2:
    — Jacob deGrom threw six shutout innings, but left after six innings (80 PT) with a sore elbow. In his four starts since being on the IL, he’s thrown 63-70-85-80 pitches.
    — Mets started a 31-day stretch where they’ll play 33 games; one day off, with three twinbills mixed in. Some consolation; 22 of those 31 days will be spent in New York City.

    Cubs 8, Cardinals 5
    — Anthony Rizzo hit a home run on the 14th pitch of an at-bat, sending the biggest crowd of the year into a frenzy.
    — Cubs scored twice in the 7th inning after Bill Murray sang Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

    Giants 1, Nationals 0
    Max Scherzer left the game after 12 pitches with a leg injury, bad news for a Washington team facing a pair of games against the Giants Saturday.

    Dodgers 12, Rangers 1
    LA scored six runs in first inning, sending Texas to their 15th consecutive road loss.

    Random strange stat of the day: Of all the active big leaguers with 125+ AB’s against the Indians, the player with the best batting average is?

    Elvis Andrus, .367. Go figure.

    A’s 4, Royals 3— That same Elvis Andrus hit a walk-off single to rightfield, as Oakland avoided what would’ve been a bad loss.

    I’m watching the classic baseball movie Major League the other night and the Indians manager comes to the mound to bring in Wild Thing Vaughn (Charlie Sheen); manager Lou Brown wasn’t much for the analytics community: “I know he hasn’t done well against this guy, but I’ve got a hunch he’s due.”

    — A little Pac-12 football knowledge:
    Arizona- New coach Jedd Fisch was an offensive coordinator in the NFL; X’s and O’s won’t be a problem, but how will he recruit? Losing 70-7 to Arizona State last year make this year’s game with the Sun Devils more interesting.

    Arizona State- 9 starters back on offense, 11 on defense; they were +8 in turnovers LY, in only four games. Sun Devils have a 3rd-year starting QB, unusual in this day and age. Expectations are high in Tempe; ASU lost 16 of its last 19 games against USC- they play Trojans November 8.

    California- 9 starters back on offense, 7 on defense; their two losses last year were by total of five points. Cal ranked outside top 100 nationally LY in scoring, rushing, passing- their QB has 23 career starts, most of anyone in the Pac-12.

    Colorado- 9 starters back on offense, 8 on defense; is there a hangover after you lose your bowl game 55-23, the way Colorado did last year? They’re not sure who the QB will be; Colorado was #23 in country in rushing LY, but they allowed 32+ points in four of six games.

    Oregon- 9 starters back on offense, 7 on defense; lot of returning starters all over the Pac-12 this fall. Ducks will have a Boston College transfer (28 starts) or a freshman at QB, which could be a problem, but otherwise they have quality depth all over the field.

    Oregon State- 9 starters back on offense, 7 on defense; notice a trend here? Beavers scored 31.2 ppg two years ago, 28.9 last year; coach Jonathan Smith knows his offense. Problem is, they gave up 65 points in their two wins LY. The defense needs some work.

    USC- 8 starters back on both sides of the ball; QB Kedon Slovis had a pretty good OC in high school in Phoenix- NFL Hall of Famer Kurt Warner. Trojans were 5-1 LY, with three wins by 5 or fewer points; coach Clay Helton kept his job, but fired his 14th assistant over the last five years- they also fired the strength coach.

    Stanford- Cardinal started season 0-2, then won their last four games, by total of 10 points. Stanford was 93rd running the ball, 112th in rushing defense, numbers that need to improve. The QB situation is up in the air for this fall, rarely a good thing.

    UCLA- 9 starters back on both sides of the ball, as Chip Kelly fights to show that his success at Oregon wasn’t a fluke. Bruins were 3-4 last year; they scored 42-35-38-47 points in the losses. UCLA finished 114th in country in pass defense LY, a bad thing if you’re in the PAC-12.

    Utah- Because QB’s transfer every 90 minutes or so, Utes have Baylor transfer Charlie Brewer on their roster now. Brewer threw for 9,700 yards in 44 games at Baylor; is Utah a better place to play than Waco? Utes are trying for third Pac-12 South title in last four years.

    Washington- Huskies have 11 consecutive winning seasons, but they finished in top 25 in only four of those years. Washington only played four games LY, so their returning starting QB isn’t as experienced as it seems. A September 11 game at Michigan will be interesting.

    Washington State- Coogs hired an assistant coach in charge of poaching transfers from other schools, probably a wave of the future. One of their transfers this year in QB Jarrett Guarantano from Tennessee; there weren’t a lot of people in Knoxville who were upset when he left. Wazzu has 8 starters back on offense, 10 on defense.

    Last thing tonight; Just watched a 1995 episode of Columbo, where Norm from Cheers was the bad guy. This was shortly after Cheers went off the air; Norm’s character owned racehorses, but his brother was a degenerate gambler who owed money to the wrong people- Norm tried to make everything go away by killing his brother, and the guy he owned money to.

    No bueno. Even Cliff Clavin could’ve figured that one out.

    ************************************

    Sunday’s Den: Mixing in some baseball with Big X football knowledge

    Someday, someone will explain to me why teams bat their pitcher 8th; it makes zero sense to me. Hopefully next year, everyone will use the DH so this will be a moot point, but it still kind of bugs me that in a multi-billion dollar business, things are done for no apparent reason.

    10-12 years ago, Tony LaRussa batted the pitcher 8th in St Louis, and people assumed that since he did it, it was a good idea. No one has done it in a playoff game, which is the truest tell; it seems like a useless gimmick, something to yak about.

    I’m convinced that Joe Maddon sometimes does things just to mess with people; he has batted the pitcher 8th too. What do you say to a position player when you bat him behind a pitcher?

    Texas Rangers’ TV crew is very good; Dave Raymond/CJ Nitkowski or David Murphy. They talk calmly about the game, they’re good natured, they give the other team credit if it is due. Easy to listen to.

    Overall, the quality of local TV baseball telecasts has gone downhill; lot of homerism, and not the funny Harry Caray-type. More the “we can’t say anything bad, ever” kind.

    Good news on the TV front; Showtime announced that the series Billions will have new episodes on the air, starting September 5. Billions was airing its fifth season of shows when the pandemic shut everything down; think they’ve the filmed the seven episodes from season 5 that were already written, but never got filmed before the pandemic. Excellent show, worth watching.

    Mets 4, Padres 1— Mets allowed 3 or fewer runs in their last 11 home games, their best such streak since 1968, when Seaver/Koosman worked in Queens.

    Cubs 7, Cardinals 2:
    — St Louis starter Gant faced 11 hitters, gave up 5 walks and a homer.
    — Cardinal pitchers have hit 51 batters, most in the majors.
    — Kris Bryant played 3B, for first time since April 20.

    In three games in Minnesota during the week, Giancarlo Stanton went 6-15 with three HRs and eight RBI, but when New York played the Phillies Saturday, Stanton was on the bench, since there is no DH in National League parks.

    Whats the deal here?
    — Is Stanton so brittle that he can’t stand in outfield for nine innings?
    — He makes $28M a year; would be nice if he played in all the games, especially when his bat is hot.
    — Are the New York trainers coddling him too much?
    — (Stanton was a pretty good outfielder for the Marlins, by the way)
    — I’m 61 years old, I could play the outfield and not get hurt. Might not catch any baseballs, but good grief, Stanton looks like an NFL tight end- he can’t play the outfield?

    Elsewhere, today ends Game 10 of our fantasy baseball league’s regular season, the halfway mark for us; time goes by quickly. Season isn’t half-over yet; our fantasy playoffs are in September, but it has been great to have things seem more normal this year.

    This time last year, we were still a month away from the baseball season starting.

    Here is some knowledge on Big X college football:
    Baylor
    — Baylor’s 4-year starting QB bolted Waco, will play at Utah.
    — Maybe he left because he was sacked 31 times in nine games LY.
    — Baylor has 10 starters back on defense.
    — Bears ranked 123rd in rushing LY, 100th in scoring.

    Iowa State
    — Haven’t won a league title since 1912; they lost Big X title game 27-21 LY.
    — QB Purdy is back for his 4th year as the Cyclones’ QB.
    — Iowa State returns 26 players who’ve started 6+ games in their career/
    — How has a big $$$ money school/NFL not hired Matt Campbell away from Ames?

    Kansas
    — Lance Leipold is their sixth coach since 2009; he was 37-33 at Buffalo.
    — Leipold’s Buffalo team ranked #2 in country in rushing LY; Kansas was 116th.
    — Leipold was hired the day before the Jayhawks’ spring game; not ideal.
    — Anyone else wondering why they fired Mark Mangino 10 years ago?

    K-State
    — Wildcats have only 3 starters back on defense.
    — K-State lost their last five games LY, giving up 40.6 ppg.
    — Wildcats added five players via the transfer portal.
    — Freshman QB TJ Rubley is the son of a former NFL QB.

    Oklahoma
    — 8 starters back on offense, 9 on defense
    — They’ve won Big X six years in a row.
    — Scored 43 ppg but lost twice (38-35/37-30)
    — Sooners dropped 9 TD passes LY; the receivers need to be better.

    Oklahoma State
    — Only five starters are back on offense, but QB Sanders is a 3rd-year starter.
    — Over last 11 seasons, OSU is 101-40, one of 10 programs with 100+ wins since 2010.
    — Cowboys’ punter is Tom Hutton, a 31-year old Australian.
    — Cowboys have never played in Big X title game.

    TCU
    — Gary Patterson has been head coach at TCU for 21 years.
    — Junior QB Duggan has already started 19 college games.
    — Horned Frogs are thin at LB and safety.
    — TCU won five of last six games LY, after a 1-3 start.

    Texas
    — Longhorns scored 42.7 ppg LY, finished 7-3; the coach got fired after going 32-18.
    — There will be a QB competition in summer camp.
    — Texas has only 6 starters back on offense, 5 on defense.
    — Steve Sarkisian is the new coach; six years ago; he got fired as head coach at USC for showing up drunk to practice. If you work for Nick Saban, people forget things about you.

    Texas Tech
    — Tech is 8-14 since Matt Wells replaced Kliff Kingsbury as coach.
    — Red Raiders gave up 36.7 ppg last year.
    — Tech hasn’t been to a bowl game since 2017.
    — One of Tech’s QBs is Tyler Shough, who was Oregon’s starting QB LY.

    West Virginia
    — Last time they won a league title was 2011; they won the Big East back then.
    — Mountaineers have only 5 starters back on defense.
    — WVU is 11-11 in two years since Dana Holgorsen bolted for Houston.
    — Mountaineers’ shortest road trip in Big X is Iowa State, 872 miles away.

    Monday’s Den: Hard to believe its been 20 years already. Happy Armadillo Day

    Hard to believe, but 20 years ago today, this website got its start; time flies when you’re having fun, and this has (mostly) been fun.

    I’d like to thank all of you for reading this space (I’m hoping someone is out there reading)

    I’ve had the pleasure of learning from a lot of smart people over the years; hopefully I’ve passed some of that knowledge on to you. Lot of what is posted here is trivial, but trivia can be fun. If it makes you smile or makes you think, then it is useful trivia.

    — Random joke from comedian Rip Taylor: “The economy is so bad, even the price of down is up”

    — A coach rips into one of his players, who dislikes the coach: “You’re playing lousy because you’re ignorant and apathetic!!!!” Kid looks at the coach, shrugs and says, “I don’t know and I don’t care.”

    Someday I’ll do a big thing thanking everyone who has helped me, but right now it is really late and I would leave someone out and that would make me sick, so I’ll do it another day. Just know that I appreciate what I’ve learned from those of you who I’ve met.

    One of the things I believe is that certain people come into our lives for a reason; we may not know it at the time, but eventually we do. They may even be cruddy people, but we learn from them too and we use that knowledge to make ourselves better.

    I’ve made several new friends because of this site; you never have enough good friends.

    So much has happened since 2001; now isn’t the time to look back, its time to look ahead, to try and figure out what’s going to be happening in the coming months.

    — Baseball is going to look a lot different next year. Will be lot of new rules; eventually, they will add two expansion teams, maybe the A’s/Rays will also move.

    Hopefully, everyone will use the DH next year, and 7-inning doubleheaders will go away; I’m not too opinionated on the other potential rule changes— oh yeah, no robot umps either.

    — NFL teams will play 17 games this season for the first time; eventually, they’ll play 18, with the Super Bowl on Presidents Day weekend.

    — College football will expand to an 8-team or 12-team playoff; too much money involved for them to say no to that.

    — College basketball is undergoing a huge change right now, not necessarily for the better. I am hoping that soon kids can go right from high school to the NBA, which might reduce the amount of roster-hopping that is happening at a ridiculously high pace right now.

    Random odd stat: NFL went to the 16-game schedule in 1978. Since, the QB who has started all 16 games for his team and thrown the fewest TD passes?

    In 1995, Trent Dilfer started 16 games for Tampa Bay, but threw only four TD passes all season for the 7-9 Buccaneers, who were 5-2 in games decided by 7 or fewer points. Five years later, Dilfer won the Super Bowl starting for the Baltimore Ravens. Go figure.

    Suns 125, Nuggets 118— Phoenix is in playoffs for first time in a decade; they sweep Denver here, advance to the Western Conference final.

    Bucks 107, Nets 96— Kyrie Irving hurt his ankle, Bucks evened series 2-2.

    — Guy named Garrick Higgo (played college golf at UNLV) was six shots down when he began play Sunday, but the leaders stumbled, and Higgo won his first PGA Tour event, in only his second try. He’s also won twice on the European Tour in the Canary Islands. Higgo is only 22 years old; he is a lefty golfer from South Africa.

    — Former Colorado QB Sam Noyer, a 2nd-team Pac-12 guy last year, is transferring to Oregon State, because every QB who doesn’t start seems to transfer to somewhere where he will start. Unusual for a QB to transfer within the conference, though.

    Toronto 18, Boston 4— Blue Jays hit eight home runs.

    If the playoffs started today (they don’t):
    NL: Mets/Cubs or Brewers/Giants. Wild Card: Chi/Mil @ Dodgers
    AL: Rays, White Sox, A’s. Wild Card: Houston @ Boston

    Today we start the next 20 years, hopefully filled with laughter and good health for everyone. Thanks again for reading.

    Happy Armadillo Day, and happy birthday to my friend Big Dawg, who celebrates a birthday today. He is a smart, funny man; don’t believe me?

    Before my ill-fated marriage way back in 1992, Big Dawg comes up to me at work, and in front of several other people says: “Don’t spend too much time with her. Remember, she’s only your first wife.”

    Then he walks away. Oy. Happy birthday, Big Dawg!!!!

We have to rest him the first year.’ … I don’t really make any decisions like that until I actually have an opinion on it. And that’ll take to how I see him in camp. If he comes in and he’s playing at a high level and we think he gives us the best chance to win, we wouldn’t hesitate to do that.”

    *****************************************

    Tuesday’s Den: Nobody asked me, but……..

    13) An infielder in Korean pro baseball scratched the cornea in his eye last week, when he rubbed sweat out of his eye, only did it too vigorously.

    I meant to mention this last year, after my cataract surgery; the surgeon had mentioned to me to be careful when washing around the eyes— you can do damage to a delicate area.

    12) If I was a big league ballplayer and they told me they traded me, the first thing I’d want to know, other than where I was going, is who did you get for me?

    11) Giants 5, Diamondbacks 2— Arizona has now lost 20 in a row on the road.

    10) A’s 8, Angels 5:
    — Mitch Moreland got his 1,000th career hit in this game.
    — Mark Canha is 9th Oakland player ever to play LF-CF-RF, all in the same game.

    9) Hawks 103, 76ers 100:
    — Atlanta wins after trailing by 18 at one point; series is 2-2.
    — Joel Embiid went 4-20 from floor, 0-12 in 2nd half. He is playing with torn meniscus in his knee.

    8) Clippers 118, Utah 104:
    — LA led 30-13 after first quarter, never looked back.
    — Home side won all four series games.
    — Utah’s subs shot a combined 4-20 from the floor.

    7) Do young actors get starstruck when they do scenes with really famous actors?

    I’m thinking of one of the last scenes in Last Vegas; the young concierge is saying goodbye to the four older dudes he helped out during the movie, but not just any older dudes:

    Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Kevin Kline.

    Has to be the young guy’s career highlight, right?

    6) Red Sox 2, Blue Jays 1— Toronto won 18-4 Sunday, then trailed 1-0 here with two outs in 9th, when Vladimir Guerrero tied the game with a dramatic homer. Rafael Devers walked it off in bottom of the 9th by hitting a ball off the Green Monster.

    Coming into this game, Red Sox starting pitchers had allowed 40 runs in their previous 39 IP, so this had to be a relief for them.

    5) Baseball injuries:
    — Cleveland P Shane Bieber (shoulder)
    — Royals OF Andrew Benitendi (ribs)
    — Rays P Tyler Glasnow (elbow)

    4) A’s manager Bob Melvin got his 1,300th career win over the weekend, making him the 35th big league skipper to hit that milestone.

    3) There is going to be a new NHL team in Seattle next fall; the expansion draft is next month, which should be interesting.

    — How hard will the new team try to win quickly?
    — Which players will be left unprotected?
    — When is Seattle getting a new NBA team?

    2) There is apparently a chicken wing shortage in Buffalo, which has raised prices.

    “This time last year, an order of 20 from us came to $25 even [after tax]; right now it’s $31.53” s restaurant manager told the New York Post.

    — Back in 2018, an oversupply in chicken wing production forced the process to slow.
    — During the pandemic last year, a shortage of workers and bursting demand for takeout worsened the crunch.
    — The big winter storm in Texas in February made supply-chain matters worse when farmers had to euthanize hundreds of thousands of chicks and destroy hundreds of thousands of eggs.

    So far, no one is suggesting that fowl play is involved.

    1) RIP to the great actor Ned Beatty, who passed away over the weekend, at age 83. One of our best character actors, Beatty has 228 movie credits, including Network, Superman, Deliverance and He Got Game. He was even a judge in Law & Order once. RIP, sir.
