  • Sam's Three Stars, 2017 Season!

    I know, it's been years since I completed a year, but I still like starting these; it's fun to start them. So enjoy some spring training and World Baseball Classic notes and then take bets to see how long i can go before I get frustrated! :atthepc

                PHILADELPHIA 7, ATLANTA (SS) 4

                W - Drew Anderson (1-0, 5.40)
                L - Michael Mader (0-1, 54.00)
                S - Michael Mariot (1, 0.00)

                HR - Christian Walker (1)

                Good Days - Despite allowing an inherited runner to score, Josh Collmenter held the Phillies scoreless in three innings otherwise. Jesse Biddle had a scoreless inning and Rhiner Cruz had two. On the other end of a meltdown sandwich, Luke Jackson had a scoreless inning. Christian Walker, of course, had a homer for his only hit, but anyone would take that most days.

                MIAMI 8, ATLANTA (SS) 6

                W - Severino Gonzalez (1-0, 0.00)
                L - R. A. Dickey (0-1, 5.40)
                S - Hunter Cervenka (1, 0.00)

                HR - Dee Gordon (1)
                Dustin Hood (1)

                Good Days - Jim Johnson, Eric O'Flaherty and Mauricio Cabrera had scoreless innings mixed in with Max Fried's two scoreless frames. Despite an error each, Austin Riley had two hits and Dansby Swanson had two RBIs.

                  BOSTON 11, ATLANTA 1

                  W - Kyle Kendrick (1-0, 3.00)
                  L - Mike Foltynewicz (0-1, 4.50)
                  S - None

                  HR - None

                  Good Days - I guess you could say Foltynewicz had a good day, allowing just two hits and a walk in three innings. Jose Ramirez and Blaine Boyer had scoreless innings. Kurt Suzuki drove in the Braves only run.

                      Let's see.. there's Freeman (Canada), Teheran (Colombia) and Inciarte (Venezuela). Looks like that's it. Speaking of which:

                      ISRAEL 2, KOREA 1, 10 INN.

                      W - Josh Zeid (1-0, 0.00)

                      S - None

                      HR - None

                      Don't think anyone saw that coming.

                      Good Days - Jason Marquis (FA) and Josh Zeid (New Britain Bees) bookeneded the staff with three scoreless frames each. Sam Fuld (FA) had two hits and Scotty Burcham (Rockies) also had two hits and got the go-ahead RBI in the 10th.

                      Despite all singles, Geon-chang Seo (Nexen Heroes), Ah-seop Son (Lotte Giants), and Byung-hun Min (Doosan Bears) had two hits each for Korea.

                          That's not bad. At least most of the team will actually have a spring training

                            I'm not as worried about that as most people are. Partly because I care about the WBC and this is the only time it can realistically be done. And two, I like peeking in at all the other teams. Look what happened last year: Freddie was recovering from the wrist injury, had only an okay spring , then goes on to have the best season of his life.

                            NETHERLANDS 5, KOREA 0

                            W - Rick van den Hurk (1-0, 0.00)

                            S - None

                            HR - Randolph Oduber (1)
                            Jurickson Profar (1)

                            Good Days - Four Netherlands players had two hits: Andrelton Simmons (Angels), Profar (Rangers), Dashenko Ricardo (Curacao Neptunus) and Oduber (Neptunus). Five pitchers combined for the shutout, spearheaded by van den Hurk (SoftBank Hawks) and Diegomar Markwell (Neptunus). Shairon Martis (Lincoln Saltdogs), Tom Stuifbergen (Corendon Kinheim), and Loek van Mil (Neptunus) completed the shutout.

                            Woo-chan Cha (Samsung Lions) finished the game for Korea with 2 1/3 scoreless innings.

                            JAPAN 11, CUBA 6

                            W - Ayumu Ishikawa (1-0, 2.25)
                            L - Yoanni Yera (0-1, 9,00)
                            S - None

                            HR - CUB - Alfredo Despaigne (1)
                            JPN - Nobuhiro Matsuda (1)
                            Yoshitomo Tsutsugo (1)

                            Good Days - Matsuda (Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks) led the way with four hits, three runs and four RBI. Tsutsugo (Yokohama DeNA Baystars), Ryosuke Kikuchi (Hiroshima Toyo Carp) and Hayato Sakamoto (Yomiuri Giants) all had two hits, with Sakamoto's knocks being two doubles. Ishikawa (Chiba Lotte Marines) allowed just two hits in four innings.

                            For Cuba, Yoelkis Cespedes (Alazanes de Granma) had three hits and Despaigne (Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks) and Yurisbel Garcial (Matanzas) added two each.
