A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Need More

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on March 15, 2022

The Rondon pick up was nice. I’m in no position to knock anything Zaidi does (or doesn’t do). But come on man, the shackles are off, let’s see more action! With the Dodgers set to land Freeman (Jesus, I am getting tired of these pick ups) I don’t think we can stroll quietly through the Brebbia aisle.

Hopefully something happens today.

    well, something happened to Heath Hembree, who signed with Pirates.
    Drafted by Giants out of College of Charleston (who had famous longtime b-ball Coach Cresse), made his debut for Giants in September of 2013. Pitched in 9 games, went 7 2/3 innings allowed 4 hits 2 BBs 12 Ks and 0 runs.
    Hembree’s career ERA is 4.19 over course of 331 innings with half dozen teams.

    Giants dealt him off July 2014 along with minor leaguer LHP Edwin Escobar (who had ERA of 7.00 for AZ in 2016 in last ML season) for Jake Peavy, who finished 2014 with 78 innings for SF with ERA of 2.17 in 12 starts. And Giants got him a ring.

    Jakob Junis numbers from B/R
    Last 2 seasons 64 innings total, 41 Earned runs. ERA 5.77
    2019, started 31 games pitched 175 innings. ERA was 5.24. Career ERA is 4.82.

      I think they are looking at the career K/W ratio and the 1.2 WHIP his first two years. Trim the HR rate a a bit and you have a serviceable starter. He’s never thrown hard, so it’s not like he’s lost his stuff.

        career OPS against him is .794. Those first 2 years were back in 2017 and 2018. He does K a lot of guys, but slugging pct against him is pretty high. Seems like he gets hit pretty hard when ball is in play.
        Same thing with Martinez, who was also last effective in 2018/2019 after being moved to pen but gave up 79 earned runs in his last 102 innings 2020/2021.

        I realize it’s beginning of ST, everyone feels good, including players fans coaches writers yada yada just happy to have baseball back again. I think a lot of rose colored BS also gets put out there; I have hard time believing guys like Martinez, or Junis or Sean Hjelle (ERA of 5.74 in 53 innings at Sac 2021) are going to help Giants much 2022.

        They need bodies to eat innings. These guys are camp fodder.

        Hjelle may or may not stick, but they will give him all the rope he needs to pass or fail. He’s a high pick that gets the benefit of the doubt. He’s still relatively young. It took Randy Johnson a while to get hi shit under control. Maybe it is harder for tall guys to build a solid repeatable pitching motion.

    Junis will be no more then a swing man / spot starter.The Giants have to find more innings since their staff except for Webb will not go consistently deep in games.I think they still add arms u never have enough pitching and maybe Z feels Hejelle,Beede,Long still need more seasoning to start the year..

    For now though Z/H need to be burning the phone lines on RH BATS.
    Suzuki the perfect fit with speed,power,strong arm, Castellanos just a great hitter,doubles machine, defense shaky but u have the DH option as well. And for shits and giggles find out what Beane wants for Chapman!!

    One thing I have a decent prediction record on is lawsuits.
    The latest being the Pettitos suing the Laundries.
    Soon to come:
    The Saget family will sue the hotel for some sort of unsafe condition…
