John Fox wasn't out of work for long. Three days after being fired by the Broncos, Fox is set to take over the Bears, according to multiple Friday reports.Fox's 46-18 Dak Prescott Jersey record and four consecutive first-place finishes weren't good enough for the Broncos, but that kind of resume has plenty of appeal around the NFL, so it was no surprise the veteran Tony Romo Jersey coach found a soft landing.MORE: Fox isLovie Smith all over again |Bears findnew GM | What to do about CutlerFox, who turns 60 next month, previously spent nine years with the Panthers, leading them to a 73-71 record.

Star Ronde Barber says Jameis Winston has gun

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Ronde Barber has spent time this summer watching the team's No. 1 draft pick, quarterback Jameis Winston, in action.And Barber really likes Daimion Stafford Jersey what he sees, praisingthe rookie QB during a recent CBS Radio interview.MORE: Surfing not the reason Mariota hasn't signed with Titans|Best and worst offseason moves for every team"He gives you the spectacular, but he also gives you the rookie," Barber told CBS, via JoeBucsFan.com. "But what I will say about [Winston] is he plays with zero fear. He'll let go of any ball. He has that confidence."I've played against guys that have supreme confidence in themselves and their Cameron Heyward Jersey ability to make plays. You can already see it. He has no fear letting the ball go."Barber, a three-time All-Pro who played 16 years in the NFL, saw his share of both good and bad quarterbacks as a player, and now as an analyst for Fox Sports he can be even more studious on the subject.He contrasted Winston with the quarterback who preceded him at Florida State, EJ Manuel, who has had two mediocre seasons Rod Woodson Jersey in Buffalo since being drafted No. 16 overall in the 2013 NFL draft."I did a couple of games of Buffalo over these two years that I've been working at Fox, and [Manuel] is the other way," Barber said. "He's timid. He holds the ball. He's scared to deliver it when he needs to."This guy [Winston] is the complete opposite, maybe to a detriment at times; he throws a lot of interceptions."Everyone expects Winston to have growing pains LC Greenwood Jersey in his rookie season; all quarterbacks do. But Barber says the young quarterback has the intangibles to be "great.""He has that 'it,' that bravado, that gunslinger mentality, if I could use that [tired] clich, to be a great quarterback in this league," Barber said. "I think the good ones have that. Now how he learns to deal with that as a pro and take care of the football and do the right things on the football field? But he has the tools."

  Top 10 Prospects- The Colorado Rockies
Příspěvek od: sherry2018love - 23. 10. 2017, 06:28 - Fórum: Dekorace do dětského pokoje - Žádné odpovědi

The Colorado Rockies2010 MLB Record: 83-79 (third place, NL West)Minor League Power Ranking: 14th (out of 30)Click for: Last Years Top 10 Prospect List
The Prospects
1. Tyler Matzek, LHPAcquired: 2009 1st round (California HS)Pro Experience: 1 season2010 MiLB Level: A-ballOpening Day Age: 20Estimated Peak WAR: 5.5
Notes: Matzek had a respectable debut this year at low-A ball. The previous No. 1 draft pick posted a 4.32 FIP in 89.1 innings. His strikeout rate sat at 8.87 K/9 but he struggled together with his control (6.25 BB/9). Matzek also needs to find a way to keep the ball on the floor on the more consistent basis (39% ground-ball rate), especially if hes likely to succeed with approximately half his starts in Colorado. He's a good repertoire, including an 88-92 mph fastball that touches the mid-90s, a curveball, slider, and changeup. Matzek includes a three-quarter arm slot having a follow through that doesnt leave him inside a great fielding position. There's some deception in his delivery. If he can smooth out his throwing motion, Matzeks control could improve.
2. Nolan Arenado, 3BAcquired: 2009 2nd round (California HS)Pro Experience: 2 seasons2010 MiLB Level: A-ballOpening Day Age: 19Estimated Peak WAR: 5.0
Notes: Arenado had a great first full season in pro ball. The teenager showed excellent power potential by having an ISO rate of .212 in 92 low-A games. Also, he showed the opportunity to hit for any solid average without the aid of a bloated BABIP. When there is one thing he must focus on as he rises the ladder its his patience at the plate. Because he has good barrel awarene s, Arenado does not walk a great deal (4.8 BB%) but he also doesnt strike out much (13.9 K%). Hopefully, he can continue to hit for power while making above-average contact. Arenado includes a nice, quiet stance at the plate but he is doing escape on his front foot against off-speed pitches. There is some upper cut to his swing. Defensively, he doesnt have great range or good foot work, but he does have a very strong arm.
3. Wilin Rosario, CAcquired: 2006 non-drafted free agent (Dominican Republic)Pro Experience: 5 seasons2010 MiLB Level: AAOpening Day Age: 22Estimated Peak WAR: 4.5
Notes: Like Arenado, Rosario is an intriguing power-hitting prospect. Rosario, though, is a lot nearer to Benjamin Watson Jersey being MLB ready. The young catcher saw hit ISO rate jump from .138 in 09 to .267 in 10 (after also flashing good play 08). Impre sively, Rosario also showed a more discerning eye while at bat with an rise in walk rate from 4.5 to 7.1 Alex Lewis Jersey BB%. He still strikes out too much (21.1 K%) but the power output makes the trade-off worthwhile. At the plate, he takes a little stride and doesnt transfer his weight overly well, and he generates power with quick hips. Rosario blew out his ACL in August but its not expected to po se s a long-term impact on his potential. Defensively, hell certainly be in a position to stick behind the dish with a strong arm and good receiving skills. When there is a knock on his defensive work, its his game-calling skill but that should improve with time. Hes obtaining a little thick within the lower half, so Rosario will have to look at his conditioning as he ages.
4. Christian Friedrich, LHPAcquired: 2008 1st round (Eastern Kentucky U)Pro Experience: 3 seasons2010 MiLB Level: AAOpening Day Age: 23Estimated Peak WAR: 4.0
Notes: Arguably the clubs best pitching prospect entering the 2010 season, Friedrichs development was hampered by injuries and inconsistencies. From the injuries suffered this year, the elbow inflammation is the most worrisome, but hes likely to be at full strength in spring training and could open the year in triple-A with a strong exhibition showing. When he was on the mound this year, Friedrich posted a 4.21 FIP in 87.1 innings. He displayed OK control but saw his strikeout rate dip significantly from his career mark of more than 11.00 to 8.04 K/9. The southpaw gave up a lot of hits, but he was hindered with a .342 BABIP. When hes at full strength, Friedrich shows a low-90s fastball that may touch 95 mph, as well as a good curveball and changeup. He's a compact delivery and a high-three-quarter delivery.
5. Peter Tago, RHPAcquired: 2010 1st round (California HS)Pro Experience: None2010 MiLB Level: NoneOpening Day Age: 18Estimated Peak WAR: 4.0
Notes: An additional first round choose of California, Tago was one of my personal favorite prep arms obtainable in the draft. He's a low-90s fastball and flashes a promising curveball. His changeup remains a work-in-progre s. He throws having a low-three-quarter arm slot. There is a little effort in his throwing motion and he could stand to use his legs more. Tago will likely move slowly with the system and really should open 2011 in extended spring training. I wouldnt be surprised to determine him in low-A ball prior to the year has gone out, though.
6. Rex Brothers, LHPAcquired: 2009 supplemental 1st round (Lipscomb University)Pro Chris Canty Jersey Experience: 2 seasons2010 MiLB Level: A+/AAOpening Day Age: 23Estimated Peak WAR: 1.5
Notes: Brothers was a fast-moving relief prospect this year. The southpaw took part in high-A, double-A and the Arizona Fall League, making 66 appearances overall. The workload is a bit worrisome, and thus is his control. Brothers posted a walk rate of four.26 BB/9 in high-A and that jumped to 7.04 BB/9 in double-A. He clearly has try to do before he reaches The Show, despite a strong nine-game AFL performance. When hes on, Brothers receives a large amount of strikeouts (10.57 K/9 in AA) along with a significant number of ground balls (51%). His repertoire includes a low-to-mid-90s fastball and a wipe-out slider. Another pitch (changeup or splitter) could help him against tough right-handed MLB hitters. Brothers has a three-quarter arm slot, an extended stride and a quick arm thats relatively smooth.
7. Juan Nicasio, RHPAcquired: 2006 non-drafted free agent (Venezuela)Pro Experience: 5 seasons2010 MiLB Level: A+Opening Day Age: 24Estimated Peak WAR: 3.5
Notes: A big, strong pitcher, Nicasio pitched 177.1 innings in high-A ball in 2010 a 65 innings increase from 09. The right-hander struck out 171 batters (8.68 K/9) while flashing a solid FIP of two.89. Nicasio has excellent control (1.57 BB/9) but he nibbles an exce sive amount of sometimes and winds up serving up fat pitches in hitters counts, which resulted in lots of hits allowed (9.44 H/9). His repertoire includes a low-to-mid-90s fastball, a good changeup and 2 more pitches which are in development: a slider and a changeup. Despite his good control, Nicasio doesnt have great balance during his delivery. He throws having a three-quarter arm slot. If he is able to develop yet another (or both) of these pitches, Nicasio could develop into a No. 2 or 3 pitcher.
8. Charles Blackmon, OFAcquired: 2008 2nd round (Georgia Tech)Pro Experience: 3 seasons2010 MiLB Level: AAOpening Day Age: 24Estimated Peak WAR: 3.0
Notes: Blackmon flashes numerous intriguing tools but it remains to be seen if he is able to handle an everyday gig within the Majors or maybe hes better suited to a bench role. He appeared in only 87 double-A games this year but hit .297/.360/.484. He also appeared in 20 Arizona Fall League games coupled with a good showing. The outfielder flashes gap power (.187 ISO), has some speed (49 steals in the past two seasons although he gets thrown out a great deal) and doesnt strike out much (12.8 K% in 10). Blackmon has also done a better job of getting on base via the walk together with his rates increasing in the last three seasons from 5.0 to six.3 to eight.4 BB%. He has a basic stance while at bat and transfers his weight effectively, despite the fact that he adopts a modest stride. Defensively, he has the ability to play all three spots within the outfield and really should become a solid but unspectacular fielder.
9. Kyle Parker, OFAcquired: 2010 1st round (Clemson University)Pro Experience: None2010 MiLB Level: NoneOpening Day Age: 21Estimated Peak WAR: 3.5
Notes: Parker, 21, was the starting quarterback at Clemson and had the option to pursue a pro football career. A $1.4 million contract swayed him to pro ball when he projects to have plus power, which comes mostly from a quickly bat and quick hips. Parker signed in the deadline and did not appear in the standard minor league season. Despite that fact, he should open 2011 in low-A ball. There is some question about how exactly well hell hit for average; his overall ceiling is within question as hes much more of a hard-working grinder than a natural athlete on the baseball diamond. There's also some questions about his plate discipline but his bat speed Konrad Reuland Jersey is impre sive. Defensively, he projects to become a typical to slightly-above average defender.
10. Chad Bettis, RHPAcquired: 2010 2nd round (Texas Tech University)Pro Experience: 1 season2010 MiLB Level: SS/AOpening Day Age: 21Estimated Peak WAR: 3.0
Notes: Bettis had an excellent pro debut after signing. In short-season ball, the right-hander posted a 2.21 FIP in 48.1 innings. Also, he showed above-average control with a walk rate of just one.86 BB/9. Bettis also showed an inclination for inducing ground-ball outs, and didnt allow a home run until he moved up to low-A, all the while posting modest strikeout numbers (7.26 K/9). At Texas Tech, Bettis pitched like a starter and reliever but he appears well-suited for a starting role in pro ball. His repertoire includes a low-to-mid-90s fastball, good slider and changeup. Bettis throws having a low-three-quarter arm slot and has an extremely easy delivery. He takes one step toward third base in the delivery, which causes him to throw acro s his body and puts just a little stre s on his shoulder. He should open 2011 in high-A ball.


  5 IP 0 ER 10 K_0

On April 17th, John Smoltz and the Braves ignore the Marlins with a score of 8-0. Still being closely monitored Smoltz lasted just five innings. These five innings were all the Braves needed from Smoltz, though, as he twirled a tremendous game; he didn't quit any runs and struck out ten on the way to his third win. On Baseball Tonight, Tim Kurkjian mentioned that this Denico Autry Jersey was the very first time in over 100 years that a pitcher recorded a win while going for the exact line of 5 IP, 0 ER, and 10 K.
Though Retrosheet and the B-R Play Index do not have the game-by Ryan O'Malley Jersey -game data able to checking this a sertion it is definitely true that Smoltz is the only pitcher to record this line since 1956. With that in your mind I thought it would be fun to look at more obscure pitching lines. To qualify as obscure there could be a maximum of three those who own the pitching line under consideration.
WINS5 IP, 8 ER, 0 K: Andy Pettitte, 9/29/07 at BAL5 IP, 8 H, 6 BB: Dan Reichert, 7/31/99 at TEX6 IP, 4 HR, 5 K: Jeremy Bonderman, 6/15/07 at PHI, Jim Brower, 9/24/99 at TOR, Mike Darren McFadden Jersey Mu sina, 5/19/96 vs SEA9 IP, 8 BB, 12 K: Nolan Ryan, 5/19/77 vs MIN AND 5/19/74 at MIN
That is not a typo: Nolan Ryan, in the span of four years and against the same team, posted exactly the same obscure line.
LOSSES9 IP, 0 BB, 12 K: Roger Clemens, 6/16/97 vs ATL10 IP, 1 ER, 5 H: Jerry Robertson, 8/21/69 vs SD, Don Sutton, 6/10/68 vs NYM, Catfish Hunter, 9/18/67 vs MIN6 IP, 8 K, 2 Derek Carr Jersey pickoffs: Pat Zachry, 6/26/76 at HOU
Only three pitchers since 1956 have recorded the ten IP, 1 ER, 5 H line and all sorts of three arrived consecutive years between 1967 and 1969.
These are just a few examples of interesting and obscure pitching lines. If anybody else has good quality ones post them within the comments. We may have a contest to help discover the most obscure pitching line.


  Q038A- Jeff Manto White Sox Hitting Coac
Příspěvek od: sherry2018love - 23. 10. 2017, 06:22 - Fórum: Dekorace do dětského pokoje - Žádné odpovědi

Jeff Manto stre ses approach over mechanics and believes in letting a hitter be himself. The philosophy is paying dividends for that first-year Chicago White Sox hitting coach, as his team currently ranks sixth in MLB in runs scored and fifth home based runs. A big part of that succe s has been the reemergence of Adam Dunn and Alex Rios, who've flourished under his watch.
Manto shared his thoughts on hitting, and 4 key members of the White Sox lineup, last month at Fenway Park.

Manto on Adam Dunn and confidence: Adam has great athleticism. He really has Ted Karras Jersey a good bottom half in the swing, so that as big because he is, he has great eye-hand coordination despite his strikeouts. He has the opportunity to place a lot of balls in play, although its certainly not happening at this time. And he includes a great swing path.
I would define athleticism, for any hitter, to be able get to all parts from the plate. There are several guys who become too mechanical and strictly be capable of hit middle-in. Athleticism is showing the ability to take a left-handed curveball, or perhaps a left-handed slider, thats down and away and hit it to left-center. Adam can do that.
Adams swing path is I dont determine if traditional is the right word, but its a bat path which comes down through the zone. He has some length in his swing behind him and he has great length in front of him.
I dont think [the length] contributes to his strikeout totals. I believe pitch selection does that for him. Its a timing thing. His swing path is okay.
Why [is he having a good year]? Number one, hes healthy. And despite the whole mechanical some of it, I think he just believes that he can hit again. He believes that he's a superstar and believes that he a good hitter. When you have confidence on top of ability, youre dangerous.
When a guy is struggling, its usually more mental than anything. I firmly believe and Im probably in the minority on this that when you're able to the big leagues, your mechanics are just about fine. I dont think you po se s the perfect mechanics on every swing, but if you have a good approach every evening, you are able to succeed. Everybody at this level has the mechanics to play here.
On Alex Rios and adjustments: Rios, at this time, is really a great hitter. With him and me, it was an evolution of discu sions on which he wanted to do with the ball. As he was spread out in talking to him, his batting stance didnt match what he desired to do with the ball. He desired to drive the ball to any or all fields, jump on top of some breaking balls, and on surface of some fastballs. Being spread out didnt Malcom Brown Jersey permit him to do this. Once we talked, he moved himself and stood up taller. Now he sees a great deal differently and isnt mi sing a whole lot of pitches.
We talked. I wasnt likely to use there and be a hitting coach who demanded that anything got done. We'd conversations and that he believed, and trusted, what we had to say. Thats as he became popular.
Im not really a big video guy. I know that video is e sential and that i realize it plays a major role, but its only a part of the hitting department. Its not solely the hitting department. We didnt look at video, we looked at results. Something we try to do here's worry about the ball. We believe when we be worried about the ball, the ball becomes it is important and mechanics will take care of themselves.
As a hitting coach, Im looking for balls hit hard. If youre squaring the ball up if youre hitting it hard I firmly believe that your mechanics are sound, and your approach is sound.
On Paul Konerko and preparation: Our guys will inform me what their plan's, and when I disagree with that, then well have a discu sion about it. There are some guys on the team who choose to appear middle-in, striking away. Thats not the standard method of method of doing things, but there are plenty of succe sful hitters that do that. The zone you look in varies hitter to hitter.
Paul Konerko, probably [wants the most information on the team]. He loves to see where balls are now being hit. He loves to know what hes doing, because hes this type of conscientious guy. He pays attention to lot of different things. He cares.
What we glance for is where their pitches are, whether hes an arm-side guy or perhaps a glove-side guy. If we know that a man cant throw his fastball to his arm side, well, were looking glove side, and the other way around. Were not going to sit here and try to cover the whole plate. Were looking tendencies. Were looking to see where they throw more often than not.
[Konerko] wants a few individuals involved, but all we do is validate what his plan his. Hes among the superstars that really accepts and appreciates coaching.
On Gordon Beckham and mechanics: Gordon is finally getting his Joe Vellano Jersey mechanics where he is able to sustain 600 plate appearances. This past year was a great deal uphill. His hips were moving quite a bit, but now hes attempting to remain in place more regularly. His lower half was approaching and sliding a bit, and it was dragging his bat through the zone. Hes cleaned that up quite a bit.
When youre running your hips all around the place there's a thousand drills to help you believe that. You would like them to target most on the drills that will help them feel what they need to regulate. And its a commitment. You need to mentally and physically commit to making a spinal manipulation.
In a more general sense, among the downfalls of hitting is that it has become so darn mechanical. I believe there's a place and time for mechanics. When youre coping with so much stre s and so much pre sure at extremely high levels, you have to rely on your approach. Some might argue, but in my estimation, your approach is more important than your mechanics. If you have 40,000 people screaming down your throat, you need to be able to adhere to your approach.
If a hitters approach is correct, and that he cant take action, then its mechanics. That isnt common, because like I said earlier, if youre playing only at that level, you have mechanics. There might be a tweak here or there, but nothing that requires an overhaul. If you need a change, youre not ready to play here.
On letting hitters be themselves: We have 13 hitters and I try to teach 13 various ways. Ill tell 13 different hitters 13 different spots, and 13 different plans. I dont believe there is one way of hitting. In my opinion, a good hitting coach has to teach 13 various ways. Thats things i try to do.
When I played, I had Charlie Brandon Gibson Jersey Manuel and Joe Maddon as hitting coaches, and they both ensured which i handled my strengths. I would like my guys to experience what I experienced. I'd great hitting coaches who let me be me. After i needed to be instructed, they werent afraid to come in and say, Hey, do that, but mostly they allow me to be me.

Oklahoma and TCU were the only real two teams to limit Petty towards a Two completion percentage last season.

Stat that means something: Baylor receivers
That TCU secondary had better be in top form, mainly because the Bears have four different receivers that average 90 yards per game. What? Well, Corey Coleman (92.0) and Antwan Goodley Ben Jacobs Jersey (91.5) have took part just two games on account of injuries, but KD Cannon (105.4) and Jay Lee (98.0) increased in their absence. Those four receivers have aligned for 12 TD receptions last season.

In each of those last four matchups, TCUs yards per carry against Baylor dropped. The Horned Frogs had 6.1 yards per carry and 4 rushing TDs last year.

Magic Number: 50.3
Baylor has lost 10 games since 2011, and thats the average of points per game the Bearsallowed in those lo ses. The minimum total in those lo ses was 35 points. TCU cant go with complete ball control. The Horned Frogs should focus on between 35-50.3 points.

The before Baylor and TCU played this late during the season with unbeaten, untied records was 1935. Both teams were 6-0, and the Horned Frogs won 28-0.
Bottom line
The contrast in styles sticks out,but TCU can move the ball, too. If Boykin gets some support during the running game additionally, the Horned Frogs make Petty uncomfortable, then TCU can escape Waco along with a win. Expect a stop-and-start shootout that will hit the 30s and perchance the 40s. Baylor, however, makes enough plays from the pa sing game to maintain the win streak in the home alive.
