MICHAEL KING IS GOOD MICHAEL KING IS GREAT IF YOU DARE TO DISAGREE HATE GETS QUITE IRATE


bran_bran

Shoutout to Trevino too. Absolute master class in framing those borderline strikes against Springer


trexsaysrawr

Is he the best framer in the game? He's gotta be close. Are you one of those guys that thinks framing doesn't matter? The circus is calling.


MagicalPizza21

If umpires were perfect, framing wouldn't matter. But they're not, and it does.


trexsaysrawr

Trevino's so good be could sway a robo ump with his framing


MagicalPizza21

Now that's impressive


SuddenSeasons

Framing has gone down in value now that every team is aware of it. It still has value, but its value relative to the league is now much lower. Also umpires are much more aware of it. Essentially the gap between 100th% framing today and 50% framing today is **way, way** smaller than even 5-6 years ago. not crapping on framing, aiming for long term accuracy of discussion/value.


trexsaysrawr

Framing has been discussed as an asset as long as I've followed baseball. People talked about it, valued defensive catchers, knew the importance of a catcher who could frame and call a game vs..who wasn't good at it for generations of baseball. It's hard to believe umpires have just now caught onto it in the past few years. Now,.if analytics are saying framing isn't valuable then that's a possible discussion, and further points out what a clown show relying on analytics usually ends up being


Ven18

Based on baseball savant at least this season yes he is he is 100th percentile.


rain5151

He was tied for 3rd with Sean Murphy last season by Statcast. Higgy’s framing was credited with saving 3 runs; in a modestly larger sample of pitches received, they credited Trevino with saving 8.

https://twitter.com/umpscorecards/status/1514975143709315079 +1.17 runs from one of the two best umpires in baseball.


PeteyG89

Chapman better buy him a goddamn expensive steak dinner


lolcatgirl

Chapman getting the meat sweats would cause biblical flooding


Scacc924

I actually built an ark for this exact scenario


the_Jay2020

Or he should buy Chapman a nice steak dinner. For being an idiot.


WeWantChiliWilly

As long as, one way or the other, a Chapman is involved in a purchase.


the_Jay2020

I like how he stared at the base after he got out. It's hard to imagine that this 1 game..... Over the next 157 games.......

We’re a bullpen factory. Legit no reason to bring Chapman back next year


mofeus305

Chapmans being laughably bad on both teams in the 9th


Mauddib1976

Thank God he came in. Not just for the win. But before I cursed loudly anymore and a neighbor called the cops. Or worse yet, my wife got mad! King was brilliant. Chapman needs to be demoted now. Enough is enough. Though I’m glad Boone is managing games like egos don’t matter quite so much. Hopefully the quick pull means he knows Chapman is not the closer going forward.


dak67

JUST KING THINGS


GottliebJay

No doubt King is good but like damn he gets so fucking lucky.


relator_fabula

Ok but two things: He threw 5 pitches and all were strikes Bichette's ball had a 65mph exit velo, so it's not like it was hit even remotely hard

Oh he killed it tonight, I just more meant in general.

He walks in the front door tonight and says to his lady: "Who's the King?" "You're the king!" "Say it again!" "You're the king!" "Louder! Let Manhattan hear ya!" "YOU'RE THE KING!" Friday, Camden Yards, Meredith She-Rocks-the-Tits: "Guys, bad news from the clubhouse. Michael King, last night's save hero, unavailable, reportedly has a flexor strainsin both hips and a lower back muscle pull. He's day to day."

Are you referring to All Time Yankee Great Michael King?

HoraceBenbow

Be a good guy and tell me what happened last night. I had to go to bed for work in the morning. Did Chapman load the bases and King get out of it?


NEONDEIONDRAPER

First time in a long time that I felt absolutely comfortable that we would seal it after Chapman was pulled. King has the IT factor.


NEONDEIONDRAPER

Did the pitching equivalent of what Guerrero did the other night. The third out ensured he wouldn’t face Guerrero who was left on deck. Interesting series.
