“It’ll be a challenge for pitchers to get right-handed and left-handed batters out,” Roberts said of the three-batter rule that figures to impact situational relievers. Whatever the rules, obviously there’s some consensus, so we’ll abide and support. As they evolve, we evolve.”
Dave Roberts gave us his take on the league’s new 3-Batter rule that will take place in 2020.
The league adopted this new rule during their winter meetings. The does not allow the manager change pitchers unless they have faced three batters or the end of the inning.
Justin Turner went 3-3 last night with a fifth double while Ross Stripling went 4.2 scoreless innings, yet their performances went for naught last night against the Ranges. The Rangers would go on to beat the Dodgers 3-1. This loss leaves the Dodgers with a 12-10 record putting them in a fourthc place tie with Cleveland.
Sure, he’s an excellent X’s and O’s coach on game days and in the week of preparation, but he’s also turned L.A. into a destination for players. The Rams have signed two outside free agents this offseason – Eric Weddle and Blake Bortles – and both have raved about McVay, mentioning him as one of the primary reasons they picked Los Angeles.(Cameron DaSilva-Ramswire)
The above comment comes from an article written by Cameron DaSilva for Ramswire. DaSilva writes that the Rams young head coach, Sean McVay’s two of success, as a the main reason for the Rams becoming a free agent destination.
Dasilva supports McVay’s success as a drawing beacon for the Rams by using Bortles’ own words.
“I mean, I think as a quarterback, there’s not really anybody else you’d rather be around if you had your pick,” Bortles said, via the team’s official site. “What he’s done, the people that have been taken out of here for head coaching jobs, and OC jobs in other places I think is a testament to how good he is at what he does, how good of a teacher and a coach he is. And you watch them play, and the effort and intensity that they play at speaks to the type of head coach he is and how he gets the guys going.”(DaSilva article)
One can only hope that McVay’s success continues, and Les Snead continues to supply with the Rams high quality players to continue McVay’s success.
I came across this Cameron DeSilva article last Thursday, but unfortunately, I never had a chance to post it.
I feel somewhat bad for the guy. I understand that football is a business, but what the hey. After all, he did help the Rams get to the Super Bowl. In his five starts in place of Todd Curley, he had three 100 yard games.
It is bad enough that the Rams have ignored him so far, but there has to be another team in need a running back even for a backup. Yet, as of Thursday no calls.
The Rams should have considered Anderson because the uncertainty Gurley’s availability. His arthritic knee may keep him on the bench more than on the field. This could put bulk of the rushing on Malcom Brown. If they were to sign Anderson, this would help take pressure off a Brown should Gurley not available.
