    So, remember how deGrom won the Cy Young last year with a 1.70 ERA?

    This year so far he appears... better.

    I've been a Met fan long enough to know this is only a prelude to the Deep Hurting that will happen down the line. And for all I know Jake will give up 7 ER in 1/3 of an inning next time out.

    But he looks unhittable right now. If you get the chance cue up the replay and watch the hitters staring out at him after they K. They don't believe what's happening. I've seen this for a protracted period just once before: Gooden in 85. And there were 3- or 4-month long periods with Ryan and Maddux and Kershaw. But that's about it. He's not human right now. He's making Peak Seaver look meh.

    No reason to watch the Twins tonight. Cave can't hit an infielder with a throw and Odorizzi cant throw a strike.

    Chris Davis is now 0-44.

    56, some 50s pitcher, right? Wonder what the record is for a non-pitcher. (Edit: Bob Buhl, 88)

    Edit: 46. The GOAT, Bill Bergen, career oWAR: -15!

    Bergen was a fine defensive catcher whose dubious claim to fame was his offensive ineptitude. No one played in the major leagues as long as Bill Bergen and hit so poorly. Bergen had 3,028 career at-bats, during which he compiled a batting average of .170 (516/3028), a record low for players with more than 2,500 plate appearances. Pitchers are traditionally the weakest-hitting player in the lineup, yet three hurlers with more than 2,500 plate appearances accrued higher career batting averages than Bergen: Pud Galvin with .201, Bobby Mathews with .203, and Cy Young with .210. Among position players (non-pitchers), the next lowest career batting average is Billy Sullivan with .213[2] (a remarkable .043 differential). Bergen's career on-base percentage (OBP) was .194—he is the only player with at least 500 at-bats who tallied an OBP under .200. During five of his major league seasons, both his OBP and slugging percentage were under .200. He hit only two home runs in his career—and both were inside-the-park. In 1909, Bergen hit .139, the lowest average in history for a player with the minimum number of plate appearances to qualify for the batting title.[3] Throughout his 3,229 career plate appearances, Bergen was never hit by a pitch, a major league record that stood for over 85 years until broken by Mark Lemke in 1997.

    In 1909, Bergen set another record for futility with a span of 46 consecutive at-bats without a base hit, the longest streak ever by a position player (non-pitcher). The record stood until 2011 when it was broken by Eugenio Vélez[4] (who also, coincidentally, played for the Dodgers). From 1904 to 1911, Dodger pitchers as a group outhit Bergen, .169 to .162.
    Velez apparently did not break the record, he tied it. So it remains 46.

    Chris Davis may have the worst contract in MLB history:

    Davis is in the fourth season of a $161 million, seven-year contract.

    He hit .168 last year, the worst batting average in major league history for a qualified player, with 16 home runs, 49 RBIs and a .539 OPS.

    We're playing the Twins in April? The f-ck is that?

    At least it's in Queens. High of 60 tomorrow. I assume Minny is still sub-zero.

    GM Dan Duquette, baby! After he got canned for putting together arguably the worst team in the history of major league baseball (you really need to discount the expansion teams for obvious reasons) after 8 years on the job he was interviewed by a friendly reporting for the Boston Globe and said he's like to be a team President next. Umm....okay?

    It's actually in the 60's today, but we are expected to get slammed with a big snowstorm later in the week of course.

    80 here tomorrow. Nothing sadder than an 80 degree day before the F4.

    Anyway, you can't fool me about 60 in MN. I know that's when the flies and mosquitoes the size of 747s hit. I've been to Maine. You never want to hit those permafrost farmholes with direct sunlight -- that's how alien chestbursters spontaneously generate.

    Sagnasty is the same way. My summer gig when I was home from Tech was for the county mosquito control. Relatively flat lowlands (some of which are protected wetlands that are illegal to treat) + nice soaking rain that leaves standing water everywhere + about a week of sun = goodnight Irene.

    Saginaw had a Civil War fort that was abandoned a year after it was built due to the malaria problems from the mosquitoes.
