2016 Instructions

 Pebble Beach Resorts - Host of the 2010 and 2019 U.S. Open

Well a horrific home game record in the second half of last year’s season took Peb right out of the playoffs, and they were left with no pitching and lots of grads.  Time for the rebuild so this will be a tough long year.  Have your fun with them now as I will hope to be back on the train next season with at least a few of the prospects I acquired in March. Good luck

 Standard versus Lys

 

Standard Rys

*Duffy starts if opposing SP is “1L-9L”.  Marte starts if SP is “E-9R”
 
Hitter/Platoon/Substitution Instructions:
CBuster Posey plays all day every day and does not come out.  Hank Conger is only the injury sub and a possible PH option if you need a Ly bat against Rys.
1B:  Brandon Belt plays all day every day and does not come out.  Ruf (if a Ly) and Duffy (if a Ry) are the subs in case of injury.

2B:    Ketel Marte (219abs) plays v Rys if you want to bat Ly, and he plays v Lys.  Needless to say, get him out of there if we are being routed.  Matt Duffy plays v Rys where you want to bat Ry, and he needs to get at least 125 abs for the year.  Marte is the better fielder, but that’s really only important in close endings where we lead.

SS:   Brandon Crawford plays all day every day and does not come out.   Marte or God forbid, Duffy if Crawford gets injured.

3B:  Yunel Escobar (was to have been the 1-year caddy at 3B for Kris Bryant, but Jim wrecked it all up by stealing Bryant away).  Yuney  plays all day every day and does not come out.  Duffy is the injury backup.

OF:  A couple of platoons at the corner positions:  Corey Dickerson (LF-only 224 abs) v Rys, Darin Ruf (LF v Lys), Ben Revere (CF) all day every day and does not come out, and Nick Markakis (RF v Rys) and Domingo Santana (RF v Lys).  Ruf and Santana are both thanked and excused once the Ly starter departs, but Markakis and Dickerson stay in v an early/mid Ly reliever.  If it’s close and you bring in a late Ly reliever, ok to PH Ruf or Santana, switching to Conforto if you go back to a Ry. Michael Conforto is the injury sub for injury prone Dickerson (v Rys only), and he is one of the main PH and late defense options.

 
Late Defense:  2B and OF only.  Subs come in mainly in the 8th and 9th, but can be as early as the 7th if we have a good lead.  Marte is best at 2B, but preservation of abs is more important, so ok if Duffy ends games we are losing or if we are ahead by 3+ runs.  If we are ahead by 1-2 runs late, Marte can stay in.  In the OF, the best defense is: Conforto in LF (sad, I know), Revere in CF (sad, I know), and Markakis in RF.

Starters:

OK here’s where we have serious issues this year.  6 man rotation and all have “splits” issues.  Therefore I have a 12 man staff with 6 more in the pen, and every starter has a 6 inning limitation.  5 of the 6 have split issues with Ly batters, and Fister is the other way around.  It will take a lot of early relief decisions over the course of the game with an average of 4 pitchers per game.  I would love to get 5-6 innings out of any of these starts, but not optimistic. No hitters are not applicable to this staff; but if it arises, leave him in there and see what happens!!!  In reality, all starters but Fister have serious issues v heavy Ly lineups, so if it starts going the wrong way early, go to a long reliever who does better against Ly batters, like Fister or Knebel

Starter #1 Taylor Jungmann  (limited patience – 6 inning max) 20 starts

119 innings so a 6 inning max.  Out in dots.  Ok to PH in the bottom of the 5th if it is an important spot in the game with key runners on base, especially if you have a heavy left hand lineup

Starter#2  Jose Fernandez  11 starts (limited patience – 6 inning max)

65 innings so a 6 inning max. Out in dots.  Ok to PH in the bottom of the 5th if it is an important spot in the game with key runners on base, especially if you have a heavy left hand lineup

Starter#3  Andrew Cashner 20 starts (limited patience)

Out in dots.  Ok to PH in the bottom of the 5th if it is an important spot in the game with key runners on base, especially if you have a heavy left hand lineup

Starter #4 Aaron Nola (limited patience – 6 inning max) 13 starts

78 innings so a 6 inning max.  Out in dots.  Ok to PH in the bottom of the 5th if it is an important spot in the game with key runners on base, especially if you have a heavy left hand lineup

Starter#5  Julio Teheran (limited patience) 20 starts

Out in dots.  Ok to PH in the bottom of the 5th if it is an important spot in the game with key runners on base, especially if you have a heavy left hand lineup

Starter #6  Doug Fister (limited patience – 6 inning limit) 6 starts

Dougy has 103 innings, and he is the only starter who cools the Ly batter, but it’s ugly the other way.  He must be limited to 6 innings per start which will give him the other 67 innings (103-36=67) to be the first choice long reliever for the other starters.  When he starts: out in dots.  Ok to PH in the bottom of the 5th if it is an important spot in the game with key runners on base, especially if you have a heavy right-hand lineup

BULLPEN

–  Including Fister’s bullpen availability, I have 325 innings of usage this year, and I anticipate a lot of relief needed for the corps of starters that are stuck throwing against bad splits.  Basically, Wainwright is the closer, and Knebel and Fister both come in early to slow a rally for most of the starters.  Salas and Baez are a little more even, and Rivero is the Ly to keep you honest:  

R’y closer:

Adam Wainwright (28 innings).  Easy instruction: only in the 9th inning and only with a lead or tied.

R’y gets the L’y setup:

Corey Knebel (50 innings) I envision him regularly coming in early (4th-6th innings), to get the heavy left hand lineup out for most of my starters.  Fister, if he’s not starting, is the other long man out of the pen.

R’y gets the R’y setup:

Fernando Salas (64 innings) and Pedro Baez (51 innings) are the main relievers to setup if we’re in the game

The Ly:

Felipe Rivero (48 innings) is the sole Ly reliever and he comes in for an inning or more where at least 2 of your 3 hitters due up get slowed down by a Ly.

Long/Mop:

Daniel Hudson (68 innings) is the mop.  Use “compare” to see if he also qualifies for other situations
