STEVE TRACHSEL NEWS

The Editorialized Version of Moving From WGN

Growing up in the ’90s during the resurgence of the Packers in the shadow of Lambeau Field (I know…BOO HISS EVIL!), it would have been easy for me to end up as another fair weather (which there never was) Brewers fan.  I didn’t, though, because 1) nobody cared about the Brewers when I was growing up, and 2) when I had the chance to watch baseball, the only games on were the...

Mets Card of the Week: 2003 Steve Trachsel

2003 MLB SHOWDOWN STEVE TRACHSEL This is the 2003 Steve Trachsel MLB Showdown card. This card is based off of Trachsel’s 2002 pitching performance. The game used a 20 sided dice, player cards, and strategy cards to allow a team to be drafted and a game to be played. There were base cards and there were also special foil cards for star players. In the later editions of the set...

The Mets Top Ten Worse Pitching Rotations Since 1980

Since we’ve already covered the 10 best and worst offenses since 1980, and the 10 best pitching staffs since 1980, it’s only fitting that we take a look at the 10 worst pitching staffs since 1980.  While the mid-to-late 80s and into the early 90s were the renaissance of Mets pitching, all of the bottom 10 performances have been after 1992. Ten Most Runs Allowed Since 1980 1...

What Do You See?

This is a fascinating Rorschach Test for the Met fan ... What do you see? Do you see an old friend? Do you see the greatest center fielder in Mets history? Do you see the final years of Roberto Alomar? Do you see 2006? Do you see the end of 2006? Do you see Guillermo Mota shaking off Paul Lo Duca? So Taguchi hitting a home run off Billy Wagner...

Time Is A Factor

At least the Mets had the decency to lose on Tuesday in 2:42. Monday's loss took three days to complete. Never did I think witnessing Carlos Torres lose a start would be a pleasure to watch. But the Mets 3-1 loss, which would normally agitate me because the Mets once again can't score and preserve a very good pitching performance, seemed like being handed a gallon of water...

Stop Humanizing The Phillies

Ding Dong, The Doc Is Dead. Or at least ... his streak of wins against the Mets which dated back to July 16th, 2001 when Roy Halladay was outdueled by (are you sitting down?) Steve Trachsel is dead. (A game, by the way, which brought Trachsel's record to a robust 3-10 ... way to go!) The Mets trounced a wild and velocity challenged Halladay in a 7-2 victory which not only featured...

Walking someone when it doesn’t matter (as much)

For each pitcher from 1993-2011 with at least 5,000 Batters Faced, I've added up the average growth in run expectancy per NIBB. The average increase in RE for an NIBB over that period was .323 runs, which jives with Tango's findings here. There were 175 pitchers in the sample, with a standard deviation of .013. The pitcher who gave up the least damaging change in RunEx with...

Statuesque

The Pittsburgh Penguins unveiled their tribute to Stanley Cup hero Mario Lemieux today. What made the statue interesting was the other participants in it. Who were the two poor souls that are forever bronzed with Lemieux? That would be Jeff Norton and Rich Pilon, formerly of the New York Islanders. Not often you see a statue of a legend feature opponents that he made look silly...
