...If Andy Pettitte can get the win, he will break out of a tie for 61st place with Tommy Bond. Once Pettitte starts the game, he will move into a tie with Chuck Finley for 66th place All-Time in Games Started. Pettitte has admitted to using performance enhancing drugs...Tim Lincecum hasn't taken the loss in 10 starts (9/25/09)...

Joe West ejected Ozzie and Buehrle for arguing two balk calls. Cranky in the heat?

Scoring expectancy (>= one run) from 63.7% to 68.9% to 67.9% (xx- with 0 outs to -xx with 1 out to xxx with 1 out) with the bunt. Total RE went from 1.504 to 1.410 to 1.568.

I'll still agree that Terry Francona doesn't know how to properly employ a bunt. And 90% of all sac bunts suck. This one wasn't one of them.

Well the numbers are what they are, but I think in a situation like this where the pitcher has gone five batters without recording an out it's pretty foolish to hand him one for free when you only have three left to play with.

To be fair, the guy bunting, Trevor Crowe, isn't much of a Major League hitter. Odds are he would've made an out anyway.

But the run expectancy goes down as soon as Choo is walked (because it sets up the DP), which is was pretty obvious they would do if the bunt was successful. Even if Crowe just makes an out Choo would get to bat with one out and 2 on and he is their best hitter.

No, scoring expectancy goes down, run expectancy goes up (from -xx to xxx, 1 out). However, both were higher than pre-bunt even post-walk.

And while he'll probably regress somewhat, Austin Kearns (the one up with xxx, 1 out) is only OPSing a little below Choo is 2010.

Jays beat Baltimore 5-2 on the strength of four home runs.

Jays set a franchise record for home runs in a calendar month with 50.

Carlos Silva has, so far today pitched 7 scoreless innings with 11 K, 2 H, and 0 BB. Carlos Silva... How the hell does Silva strike out 11 guys? And, his day almost definitely isn't over.

Kendry Morales hits walk-off grand slam, hurts self jumping on home plate. Oh man... could be his knee.

Morales of the Angels: Game winning walk off grand slam, then looks like he blows out a knee jumping on home plate. Really.

Still on the ground with the cart and paramedics. Could be a broken leg or ankle. Looks like they were blowing up the splint when Fox cut away.

Carlos has two more wins than he had in two years and 38 starts in Seattle (5-18).

via rotoworld:

QUOTE
Kendry Morales is scheduled to undergo surgery Sunday in Los Angeles to repair his broken left leg.
Morales suffered the fracture on Saturday afternoon while celebrating his own walkoff grand slam at home plate. It's a horrible blow to the Angels, who have relied on Morales' power for a few years. According to the Orange County Register, he could miss the remainder of the 2010 season.


And thus signals the end of the "leap as high and hard as you can onto home plate after a walkoff, and get pounded by teammates" ritual

Especially if Kevin Frandsen becomes their new starting 1B. I wonder if now the Angels might be interested in Mike Lowell?
