PCL 2016 Champion Santa Barbara Mooners

PCL 2017

2017 Instructions

Welcome to Mooner Baseball!  In 2016, the Mooners brought home the championship! This was their 3rd championship, but the first since 2001. We must enjoy that victory, because we lost almost everyone. We are in full rebuild mode, so we expect a down year. Our big chance to win games is when Clayton Kershaw is on the mound. Have fun!


Strategy for Road Play
Run like crazy, hit the bullpen hard, scratch out every run possible, and try not to beat me too bad. LOL!

!B Freeman is the guy. Do not remove him. Miller backs him up.

2B Sardinas vs. lefty, Perez vs righty. Once Perez is in the game, he should not leave until the 8th-9th. Sardinas only hits vs leftys, should not face rightys.

SS Gregorius all day every day. Miller, Nunez and Perez can back up

3B Nunez all day every day. Kendrick and Perez can back up.

C d’Arnuad vs rightys and Contreras vs leftys mostly. Once one is in, he should probably stay in

LF Maybin mostly all the time. Miller, Jay, and Pagan can back up

CF Dahl and Jay take turns in CF, and Blackmon can back up

RF Blackmon plays fulltime.

OF In general, these guys are all interchangeable, so go with good matchups. Try to keep Dahl in CF late for defense. Miller should only play LF.

Platoon / Injury Maybin, Jay, and d’Arnuad have injury issues. Plenty of guys to fill in.

Do not remove: Freeman, Blackmon.

Rarely remove: Gregorius, Maybin, Nunez

Always remove: Sardinas vs righty

 

What to do in the 7th, because Bob asked! J
If I have a 2+ run lead in the top of the 7th, bring Dahl in to CF. Get Kendrick in at 2B.

Player Usage Limitations: 
Dahl 222 AB’s but platoons and Sardinas 180 AB’s but only vs lefty. Contreras 252 AB’s but limited starts/ So really no worries on the hitters

Starter#1 Kershaw
(long and hard)

On the road, Kershaw has a 7 inning max unless he is throwing a shutout or a no hitter. He can go the distance if this happens. At home I will monitor things. In the 9th, with a shutout but NOT a no hitter, you can bring in the bullpen.

Starter#2 Eickhoff
(use patience)

He needs to go 6 innings minimum. Try to get 7. If he give up 4 runs, then think about pulling him at 6 innings depending on the bullpen. Once 6 innings happens, if we have the lead, go to the pen as needed. Use compare. If it is a blowout, let him take one for the team.

Starter#3 Straily
(use patience)

Same as Eickhoff. Must go 6 innings. In a blowout, let him take one for the team.

Starter#4 Iwakuma
(use less patience)

He needs to go 5 innings. After 5, if he has given up 4+, then get him out. If he goes 6 innings, that is cool. Get him out unless he is pitching a no-no. Wittgren or Bowman are first in for him.

Starter#5 Ray
(typical 5th starter)

Only 3 road starts. If he is doing well, let him go 6. Pull in dots or after 4 runs allowed. Romo is first one in for Ray before the 5th. Wittegren after the 5th.

Specific innings limitations:

Kershaw has 148 innings, so on the road he goes 7 innings max UNLESS he has a no-no or a shutout. No-no, let him go for it. Shutout, let him start the 8th and go batter by batter.

Additional comments: 

If any of my pitchers is throwing a no hitter, they should be allowed to stay in and attempt to complete it. After giving up a hit, they can be pulled based on my instructions.Kershaw is amazing. After that, just try to get to the 6th inning. My bullpen is way better than my starters, so go to them, but notice my starters all go 5 innings minimum, and most 6.

 

BULLPEN

R’y closer:

Diaz has the 9th and can do 4 out saves when needed. 52 innings

L’y closer:

Liberatore can be used when you have several leftys in the 9th 43 innings

R’y setup:

Law has the 8th inning. Only a 1 inning guy, but this is his inning. Use him. 55 innings

L’y setup:

Liberatore. Innings 7-9 as needed with a string of lefties (2 of 3 or 3 of 4)

6-8TH INNINGs

Bowman has these innings if the starter is out. He can also pitch the 6th, if needed. 68 innings. He is the workhorse, and can take over if Law or Diaz is tired

6th inning

Wittgren can do this inning and possibly the 7th if others are tired.

Situational:

 

    -R’y gets R’y:

Law, Bowman

    -R’y gets L’y:

Diaz, Wittgren

    -L’y gets L’y:

Liberatore

    -L’y gets R’y:

Liberatore

Longman/mopup:

Romo

Additional comments:

The plan is for Kershaw to go 7-8. Everyone else goes 5-7 innings. The pen then takes over. Let me say that again. The starters go at least 5, mostly 6 innings. The bullpen is mostly for 7-9. Let the starts take one for the team, or let Romo do so.
