Rough NLCS opener lands Yasmani Grandal on Dodgers’ bench for Game 2

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Away from the podium in the interview room at Miller Park, however, Roberts acknowledged Grandal’s defensive struggles were at least partially the reason he gave Barnes his first start since Sept. 23.“Maybe a little bit,” Roberts said. “I think there were a couple points in the game where it sped up on him a little bit. He’s started every playoff game up to this point. But to have this battery with Austin, I really feel good about. And to have him (Grandal) sit for a half a game and potentially be ready to hit, I feel good about that.”The Dodgers continually refer to Grandal as an “elite” defensive catcher, based largely on his pitch-framing abilities which annually rank among the best in baseball. But he also had 19 passed balls over the past two seasons (including a major-league high 10 in 2016). He also committed seven errors during the regular season and ranked 21st with a 0.6 defensive WAR by one measure (Willson Contreras led all catchers at 1.7).There seems to be a disconnect between Grandal’s ability to receive the ball and steal strikes – Roberts insists he has “very good hands” – and his high passed-ball total as well as the misplays receiving the ball on throws at the plate (one of Friday’s errors).“I think that’s fair,” Roberts said to the criticism. “I don’t have an explanation for the drops or the passed balls. I know that he works his tail off and cares as much as anybody. I wish I had an answer but we don’t.” MILWAUKEE — Initially, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts tried to make it sound like the two were unrelated.Yasmani Grandal had one of the worst defensive games by a catcher in postseason history during Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Friday. He is the first catcher to have two passed balls and two errors in the same postseason game.And he was not in the starting lineup for Game 2 on Saturday, Roberts citing backup catcher Austin Barnes’ history catching Game 2 starter Hyun-Jin Ryu and Barnes’ limited history at the plate against Brewers starter Wade Miley (1 for 4) for giving the backup a start over Grandal.Barnes went 0 for 3 but drew a bases-loaded walk in the seventh inning that cut the Brewers’ lead to 3-2. Grandal’s only appearance in Game 2 followed that at-bat, and he hit into an inning-ending double play. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start The two could be related. With pitch-framing becoming more prized by analytically-inclined front offices, catchers have become aware of the importance of that skill to their stature and paycheck (Grandal can become a free agent this winter) – perhaps to the point of chasing the stolen strike at the expense of other skills like blocking bad pitches.“I think at times that’s plausible, yeah,” Roberts said. “Especially when he’s trying to catch a low strike or steal a ball down below the zone, he sometimes has trouble catching the ball. It’s not only him. I think catchers across the league are guilty of that too. Because the pitch-framing is at such a premium right now. We can quantify that. So I think catchers, whether they admit it or not, are very mindful of that.”OCTOBER WOESClayton Kershaw’s 2.39 ERA during the regular season is one of several reasons he will be a Hall of Famer after he retires. His 3.72 ERA in the opening round of the playoffs is not bad. But after Game 1 on Friday night, the three-time NL Cy Young Award winner now has a 4.92 ERA in 13 appearances (10 starts) in the LCS or World Series.What is it about October that seems to drain Kershaw of his superpowers?“That’s a Clayton question,” Roberts said initially when asked before Game 2 on Saturday.It is not a question Kershaw cares to answer.“I can see that he wants to pitch well in the postseason,” Roberts said after some prompting. “He’s very conscious of certain narratives out there. Does he feel extra incentive or motivation to pitch well in the postseason? Maybe. But when he takes the baseball, I don’t think that’s on the forefront of his mind. I think his thought is like it always is – to execute a pitch.”CLOSED INWhile rain pelted Southern California on Friday and Saturday, Milwaukee stayed dry during Games 1 and 2. Yet the Miller Park roof remained closed. Why?Before each season, teams in retractable-roof stadiums – Seattle, Arizona, Toronto, Milwaukee, Houston and Miami – are required to file a list of weather-related preconditions for closing their roof. MLB has the final discretion to open or close a roof during the postseason, using the home team’s criteria as a guideline.A Brewers spokesperson said the roof generally remains closed if the temperature is below 60 degrees. It was only 53 degrees by the first pitch of Game 2 on Saturday afternoon, and even colder Friday night for Game 1.JOC POPSDodgers outfielder Joc Pederson and his wife, Kelsey, are expecting the birth of the couple’s first child on Wednesday, the day of Game 5 in Los Angeles.Staff writer J.P.
