2019 Instructions

Vegas’ new thing is to barely squeak into the playoffs, upset somebody, and then get tossed aside by a far better team. This group may be good enough to continue this trend, they should win enough to be right there for the irrelevant end of the playoff group. The pen is still good but not what it was, but at least the starters are better.

To win, this team will ride above average starting pitching into the 6th and 7th, use great stoppers to get out of mid game jams, and have a high save percentage from a strong back end of the pen. This requires that we hit a bit to get some leads, but this team is capable of doing that when the dice come up right.

Platoon / Injury

Player Usage Limitations:


Position by Position:

C

Flowers starts against leftys and Cervelli against rightys in a pure platoon. They back each other up Cervelli’s arm is 3 clicks better so a bias to have him play more.

1B

Bellinger and Myers are the 1B platoon, Bellinger against the rightys. NOTE that Myers moves to LF when he is not playing 1B, and rarely comes out of the game.

2B

Cano starts almost all the time, Harrison is the injury backup and occasional starter.

SS

Mercer against the leftys and Swanson against the rightys in a pure platoon.

3B

Arenado all the time. Injury backup is Harrison.

OF

Cain in CF all the time. Markakis in RF except against the toughest leftys. Myers in LF against rightys, with Reyes in LF against leftys. Cruz gets a couple of starts and is a PH. Duggar is the defensive sub late or for a Cain injury.

Dereck Rodriguez is a starter. Richard Rodriguez is NOT A STARTER. The back end of the bullpen is still pretty good, but not as loaded as it has been the last few years. But the starters are quite a bit better. In the new era where everyone else will be trying to get starters out early, we will be patient with the top 3 guys, and patient with Teheran and Archer as long as the bases are empty…


Flaherty, Jack

Would be an Ace but for the homers allowed to rightys. Hit for him if behind and men on in the 6th, or if behind any time after the 6th. Pull him from the mound in the 7th with important runners on base and a righty up.

Rodriguez, Dereck

Rodriguez-Star is his lastname in the game, stands for Starter…

DO NOT START RICHARD RODRIGUEZ. Dereck has a balanced card, but only 6.2IP for his 19 starts. He can pitch the 7th at West, but only 6 at East. Hit for him if behind and men on when he has just 1 inning to pitch Pull him from the mound in his last inning if there are men on and a closer/stopper card is a big improvement. His 20th start will be against AZL at home but will be canceled in favor of Archer if he is short innings.

Freeland, Kyle

Another solid starting card (but a lefty), and no beef. Same “hit for him” and “pull him from the mound” instructions as Rodriguez.

Teheran, Julio

We will watch Julio more than the above. Same “hit for him” instructions as above, but pull him from the mound in a close game any time after the 5th inning with two men on base.

Archer, Chris

Same “hit for him” instructions, but don’t let a beefy lefty bat off him after the 5th inning with two men on base unless he is way ahead.

Specific innings limitations:

See Derek Rodriguez above. DO NOT START RICHARD RODRIGUEZ.

Additional comments:

All these guys come out in dots if it is still a game. If we’re blown out early, the starter can go a while.

 

BULLPEN: Of course they are all rightys, what did you expect.


Cishek, Steve

70 ip

Closer, versus rightys and mixed lineups. Lots of innings, faces leftys in a group of rightys to close. Can pitch 6 outs in a game

Oh, Hwan et al

68 ip

Alternate closer versus right but NOT good against leftys. Great in the middle of the game against a string of rightys, as alternate closer, or a Stopper mid game.

Burnes, Corbin

38 ip

Closer or stopper against leftys. Low innings so best to use him in key spots.

Rodriguez, Rich
NOT DERECK

69 ip

Closer or setup versus leftys, but okay against rightys and has lots of innings. Will face rightys with leftys on deck. Hopefully pitches 4-6 outs in a game plenty of times.

Vincent, Nick

56 ip

Solid setup both ways. Hopefully will pitch a full inning or two.

Poncedeleon

33 ip

Great versus a lefty or 2 of 3 mid-game. Can be a one-out Stopper or get us out of a mid-game Jam. e.g. Will bail Teheran and Archer out of jams in the 6th.

 Additional comments:

 

Starters mop up if we are blown out.
