Congratulation to Mike Morin


Recommended Posts

His stuff doesn't profile in the back of the pen like others do though according to Sciosica, so...you know, just don't expect him to be as good as some of the greats like Jepsen and Kohn. 

 

When did Scioscia say this?

In another thread, I also pointed out that Morin had 28 saves in the minors in 2013-2014 over a total of 65 appearances.

He has more extensive closer experience in the minors than Bedrock Jr. had. Bedrock Jr. only closed for maybe a month in the minors this season.

Scioscia dropped the ball on Thursday.

No, he actually kicked the ball after dropping it.

Hitting the #9 batter with 2 outs is not all that impressive.

One pitch that got away and didn't do any damage, amongst making 3 Rangers batters look silly swinging at the Hoffman like changeup

That makes me want to go Iverson.

"Morin makes hitters look silly. And we's talking about one pitch hitting a batter."

lol @ going Iverson.

AO, you're pretty much the anti-iverson.

It's almost like you don't want him to close, Blarg.

Just come right out and say it.

Geez!

Even Mo Rivera, as much as he painted the corners, threw a solid number of cutters out of the strike zone.

 

When I look at that pitch graph, no, I do not want him to close. This is not painting corners, AO. There are only 3 borderlines that were strike call pitches. He faced the bottom of the order of a poor Texas team and they got themselves out. Against Oakland that would have been bases jammed with runners all on walks with no outs.

Notti, you're being ridiculous again.

a pitcher doesn't have to throw it in the strike zone for it to be a good pitch

 

Hollywood, your being ridiculous again, that was a bunch of scrubs in the 10th getting themselves out or hit by pitches. You guys gripe about the Angels talent evaluation but when the tools are in your hands all you do is beat yourselves over the heads with them like a bunch of monkeys. Morin was not in control of most of his pitches. It worked out well because Texas was not in control of their bats.

Small sample size

 

How about 24 BB in 112.2 IP in the minor, 7 BB in 24.1 IP in the major.

 

All closer's innings are small sample sizes. This one samples as being all over the map and yet everyone thinks it doesn't mean anything because he found a way to get three outs with only maiming one player. Takes this pitch plot and apply it to 40 games and you won't see 3 outs.

 

Can he pitch better? Probably. Did he pitch well last night, not really but the competition didn't bat well against him.

You can't find anything better than that?
