NL wild card race: Breaking down six contenders’ biggest flaw

first_imgMORE: A new team sits atop SN’s latest MLB Power RankingsBelow are six teams that could make a run at the NL wild card this year — sorry, Giants fans — and what could deter them from making the playoffs. Guess what: Pitching is a big part of all of them.MetsFlaw: BullpenBrodie Van Wagenen did good at the deadline — the Mets were too good on paper when it comes to talent — not trading Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler or even the smaller pieces like Todd Frazier in order to get smaller stuff back in return. Acquiring Marcus Stroman while keeping the other arms in Queens was cunning. But not making an effort to bring in another arm to a bullpen that has needed one is questionable. In all, the Mets’ rotation is deeper than Flushing Bay, and when all five guys are firing on all cylinders, that’s a recipe for winning.But it’s the bullpen that’s been the biggest question mark, and that’s not something that has really changed in recent weeks. The Mets’ bullpen has a 6.21 ERA over the past two weeks. ERA is always a little inflated because one bad appearance can blow the whole thing up, but this bullpen’s problems go deeper than a few bad outings.Edwin Díaz has been nothing short of a disaster. He’s already given up a career-high 11 home runs this season with a 5.32 ERA, two runs higher than his career worst (3.27 in 2017). Jeurys Familia spent time on the IL this season, but has pitched much better in August (two runs allowed in nine innings of work).Robert Gsellman has been shut down with a triceps issue. Between the injuries and the ineffectiveness, you might as well replace the Mets’ bullpen gate with a revolving door: In total, 23 players have thrown a pitch for the Mets out of the bullpen this season.If Díaz would  just get right  this team would be much more dangerous in the final month of the season, but if it hasn’t happened yet then don’t expect it.CubsFlaw: Win some dang road games.The Cubs are probably the most confusing team in baseball this year. They’re 66-58 — a good record — with a 41-19 home record, which is outstanding. So what’s the problem? They can’t win on the road.Chicago North is 25-39 on the road with 308 runs scored, 107 home runs and a .759 OPS. At home, the Cubs have 302 runs scored, 87 home runs and an .807 OPS.*insert confused Nick Young GIF here*So, clearly, the problem is probably not the offense on the road. Rather, the pitching staff has allowed more than an entire run higher on the road than at home: 4.75 as opposed to 3.35. Over their past two road trips, the Cubs have gone 7-12 and have been walked off three times. Some of that can be atributed to a shaky back-end of the bullpen (they really need Craig Kimbrel to get right), but being 14 games under .500 on the road is baffling for an otherwise really good team.How can a team that’s so good at home not even break .500 on the road? What can the Cubs do to right their road woes? Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?The Shadow knows.CardinalsFlaw: OffensePaul Goldschmidt has had an up-and-down year for the Redbirds so far in 2019. His walk rate is a career low, he’s on pace to set a career high in strikeouts and his OPS is the worst it’s been since his first season in the majors. Goldschmidt is still hitting the ball hard and playing solid defense, so he hasn’t been a detriment to the team at all (2.2 bWAR this season). But he also hasn’t been the perennial MVP candidate he was for so long in Arizona.The Cardinals haven’t scored many runs in the second half. They’ve scored 156 runs in 35 games, stuck in the bottom third in baseball. In 14 of those games, they’ve scored two runs or fewer. Not great, Bob!Side note: The Cardinals have scored one more run over that span than the Cubs have. With Harrison Bader trying to figure things out in Triple-A — someone the Cards  really, really  needed to be good this season — there’s not a whole lot of offense coming from that outfield, even with Dexter Fowler on pace to have his best season with St. Louis to this point (though, that’s not really saying much).Even with Marcell Ozuna back from injury, the Cards haven’t been lighting up the scoreboard. If they continue to not be able to score, expect St. Louis to look toward the Blues defending their Stanley Cup and not the Cardinals making a World Series run.BrewersFlaw: Starting pitchingLet’s run ’em down:Wade Miley left for Houston before the season;Brandon Woodruff is on the IL;Brent Suter and Jimmy Nelson are still awaiting returns from injury;Jhoulys Chacin is out until the middle of September;Gio Gonzalez dealt with two separate injuries this season;Yikes. Zach Davies returned from injury (back spasms) on Monday night, but will he be enough to keep the Brewers afloat for the next few weeks? The Brewers’ biggest trade deadline acquisition was Drew Pomeranz (he’s made one start for Milwaukee), despite desperately needing to add more help to the rotation and not tax the bullpenThey did acquire Jordan Lyles (for a second straight season, too) and he’s been mostly OK for them through four starts (3.43 ERA, 10 runs allowed in 21 innings).But relying on the bullpen — whether out of necessity or just because some of those guys are really good — for a second straight season after they were so taxed in 2018 is gutsy. The Brewers rank fifth in the majors in bullpen innings behind the Angels, Rays, Blue Jays and Mariners. Coincidentally enough, all of those teams have starting pitching issues and only one of them (Tampa Bay) is a wild card contender.PhilliesFlaw: Surprise! Pitching, pitching, pitchingMatt Klentak went into the offseason after 2018 knowing he had to make changes to the Phillies’ lineup. He did: He brought in Bryce Harper, who has underperformed but is still having a good season, Andrew McCutchen (out for the year with a torn ACL), Jean Segura and J.T. Realmuto.While those moves have worked out to varying degrees of success, Klentak’s biggest failure has been to ignore starting pitching almost entirely. Yes, Arrieta was a solid No. 2 behind emerging ace Aaron Nolan, but the rest of that rotation isn’t pretty: Vince Velasquez, Nick Pivetta and deadline acquisition Jason Vargas all have FIP numbers north of 5.00, even if their xFIP numbers are a bit below that.Obviously, quality starting pitching doesn’t grow on trees, but the argument can be made that the available starters at the trade deadline this season would all be better than what the Phillies are trotting out there this season.The Phillies have been slapped with injury after injury to their pitching staff, with Jake Arrieta the latest to hit the IL with season-ending elbow surgery. While Philadelphia has actually put up respectable numbers from the rubber in the second half, not having the horses in the bullpen or in the rotation could spell disaster during the late stages of the season.NationalsFlaw: Guess what: BullpenThe Nationals turning around their season after a year-and-a-half stretch of steaming mediocrity should be unsurprising, especially when you consider the amount of pure talent they have on the field: Juan Soto, Trea Turner and Anthony Rendon have all had very good to great seasons at the plate. But akin to most of the other teams on this list, there’s one fatal flaw that plagued the Nats early in the season and is still rearing its ugly, pimpled head: the bullpen.In its last two weeks of games, the Nats’ bullpen has allowed 29 runs in 41 innings, with three blown saves to boot. Their three new bullpen arms — Daniel Hudson, Hunter Strickland and Roenis Elias (currently on the IL) — have added some stability to the back end, and their numbers corroborate that. But with Elias and closer Sean Doolittle currently on the injured list, Washington is going to have to rely on arms that maybe underperformed — Matt Grace, who hasn’t performed well in big spots, and Tanner Rainey, who has nasty stuff but has a tendency to walk the ballpark — in the short term.The good news is that Washington can still mash, which is better than getting mashed.The Nationals have …- 43 runs and 52 hits in their past 31 innings- 62 runs and 72 hits in their past 47 innings- 79 runs and 99 hits in their past 72 inningsUm … wow. pic.twitter.com/yKCWGmVqgF— Ryan Fagan (@ryanfagan) August 20, 2019 There are 15 teams in the National League and it seems just about every one has a chance to make the playoffs. This is the most open the NL has been in years. On the morning of Aug. 20, for example, there were three teams within 2 1/2 games of the second wild card spot in the Senior Circuit with just over a month’s worth of games left to play. As usual with baseball, there’s a common theme: This year is bullpens and their seeming ineffectiveness, coupled with the offensive explosion (once again), meaning pitching staffs are pretty bad.last_img read more

Controversial McConnell Tract Hearing Moved to Oct. 30

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – As trick-or-treat time approaches some residents involved in a fight to ensure bayfront access are bracing for a surprise.An anticipated Sept. 27 Planning Board hearing for an applicant seeking to build three dozen homes on the 7-acre McConnell tract along the Sandy Hook Bay has been rescheduled to Oct. 30 at the Atlantic Highlands Elementary School.The adjournment was granted so the applicant – Denholtz Custom Homes (DCH) – can finish revising concept plans to reflect comments and address concerns expressed by residents and the Planning Board at a previous hearing.In the organization’s initial project plans, DCH set aside nearly a quarter of the tract for public use, including the entire waterfront portion of the parcel.Improvements to this approximately 1.5 acres of land included the reconstruction of the property’s bulkhead and the installation of a 10-foot-wide boardwalk with a 100-foot-long walkway area along the front of the plot.In an Aug. 23 interview with The Two River Times, DCH and Denholtz Associates CEO Steven Denholtz said the cost of improvements to the public portion of this proposed project would total about $1 million, a cost his company would completely absorb.Borough resident Benson Chiles, who fronts the local opposition group Neighbors for Waterfront Preservation (NFWP), said he and his counterparts fear the revisions may reflect a comment made by civil engineer James Kennedy of Kennedy Consulting Engineers in Red Bank.During that Sept. 27 meeting the applicant sought 11 variances for 11 of the 21 proposed homes that did not meet the borough’s lot-shape circle requirement. However, Kennedy said DCH could provide a totally compliant subdivision plan within the zone for just 17 homes, but in doing so would need to build upon the 1.5 acres of waterfront property set aside for the public as open space.“The reason they’re potentially proposing a development with fewer homes on it is because they’re trying to squeeze too many homes on the property in the first place,” said Chiles, a strategic consultant for conservation organizations who specializes in environmental policy development.“The fact is that land is not buildable and they’re playing hardball with it. They’re trying to use it as a bargaining chip and it felt so obvious when (Kennedy) made that comment at the hearing,” Chiles added.Though DCH refused to comment on the situation or shed light on what the revisions will entail, Denholtz did issue a statement to The Two River Times stating, “We appreciate the feedback we received from the board and members of the local community at August’s planning board meeting.”“With these insights in mind, we are in the process of making revisions to our plan and we look forward to a continued dialogue with Atlantic Highlands at the next meeting to ensure that our final project reflects the wishes and character of the surrounding community.”Some of the dialogue presented at the previous hearing focused on two particular features of the development, including the retaining wall proposed to separate the development from the nearby public beach and Sandy Hook Bay Catamaran Club near the western portion of the parcel, and an on-site sewage pump station, which is also located on the western part of the plot.During the hearing Kennedy could not provide visual renderings of what these proposed items would look like, nor could he say what construction materials or style would be used to build the retaining wall.Residents raised further concerns about the unpredictable soil erosion and erosion of beachfront that could occur near these features.Chiles said the sewage pump house is what’s most concerning.“Aside from its location in a flood zone, which presents a risk to its long-term liability, people are concerned about possible smells emitting from it, given its location to a public beach. It’d be a shame if there were any odors from that station.”Chiles and NFWP hope to resolve these issues and more at the Oct. 30 hearing continuance.This article was first published in the Oct. 11 – Oct. 17, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Please Don’t ‘Like’ This Post (Either)

first_imglen kendall Editor’s Note: This is part 2 of a 3-part series covering Len Kendall’s abstinence from the “Like” button throughout April.I’m two weeks into not “liking” anything on or off of Facebook (don’t worry — I’m past the point of shivering and vomiting all night). I’ve kept an eye on my behavior as well that of others, and I wanted to share my observations at the “midpoint” of this experiment.First and foremost, although I positioned this as a short-term experiment ending in April, I currently feel as if this behavior change may continue beyond that. I’m a bit surprised at how quickly I was able to break away from a behavior that I was performing on a daily basis, countless times a day.I’ve come very close to clicking that button hundreds of times. But I’ve consistently stopped myself at the last second. The vast majority of near slip-ups have happened on Facebook, not on third-party websites. The latter have been very easy to give up because, unlike my Facebook friends, I know that the authors of various blog posts don’t see — or don’t care — that I’m liking their work.There are three specific observations that I really want to highlight from just the last three days:Liking before thinking: The first post in this series, “Please Don’t Like This Post,” received nearly 300 likes. I know that a small portion of those likes were ironic. In other words, I told people on the Internet not to hit the big red button, and they of course hit the big red button.But I suspect the majority of the folks who liked my post did so out of sheer muscle memory. They read something that resonated with them, and before even thinking through the fact that the post was criticizing an action, they took that very action. To me this crystallizes the lack of investment a like requires. It literally happen faster than the time it takes to really let a piece of writing sink in.Polite teasing: Several people within my Facebook network have clearly taken notice of my experiment, and have poked (pun intended) fun at me. I only mentioned my experiment twice, and both posts yielded quite a bit of discussion. Since then at least 15 people have made comments related to the experiment. The teasing was mostly in the vein of, “Make sure you don’t like my comment” to “great post Len, I made sure to like it, just for you.”The theme of their jabs isn’t really the point. What I found interesting was that so many people have clearly noticed what I’m doing. Perhaps I’ve touched a nerve? Maybe I’m pointing something out that makes people rethink their own behavior? I don’t think many people are on board with I’m doing, but it certainly is getting my friends’ attention.Like Craving: Despite the fact that I’ve not been giving out likes, i’ve still been curious about who’s giving them to me. That rascally red notification flag pops-up and my attention immediately still goes towards seeing who has liked my posts and which one in particular captured their attention. Just as easy as it has been for me to stop liking other people’s posts, it’s been very difficult to ignore who is doling them out to me.Stay tuned for the epic conclusion of this experiment in a few more weeks. And again, I encourage you to either join me in this experiment, leave a comment below, or… do absolutely nothing.Just don’t click that button.Lede image courtesy of Shutterstock Related Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Tags:#Facebook#Like button#Pause Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more
