  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.

  Numbers that Matter TCU at Baylor
Příspěvek od: sherry2018love - 23. 10. 2017, 06:20 - Fórum: Dekorace do dětského pokoje - Žádné odpovědi

Who knew that Oklahoma-Texas are cla sified as the second most prominent Big 12 game on the state this weekend?
Instead, its the No. 9 TCU (4-0) with no. 5 Baylor (5-0) attach, plus the winner will have the inside track to the conference championship, and maybe a spot in your Nfl and college football Playoff.
MORE: Week 7 Picks | Heisman watch | Sizing up the ten unbeatens
Who maintain a pool of edge? Lets think about the Numbers that Matter:
Series history
This marks the 110th meeting forwards and backwards schools, but its at the first try they are both ranked inside AP Top 25. The series is tied at 51-51-7.
Signature game
In the first sort 10 meetings where either Baylor or TCU was ranked, the ranked team lost just one occasion. That happened this year, when Robert Griffin III illuminated No. 14 TCU for 359 yards and five TDs within a Friday night season opener. Cafe world signaled the arrival of Art Briles, Baylor and Griffin, who went around to win the Heisman Trophy.
Waco Effect
The Bears have won 12 home games succe sively, comprising the initial couple of along the new McClane Stadium by the combined score of 115-6. Who is responsible for the James Bradberry Jersey past team to win in Waco? TCU beat Baylor 49-21 there this year.
Strength-on-strength
This is another a version of those cla sic strength-on-strength matchups.
TCU 7th in nation as a whole defense (279.3) 7th in nation in scoring defense (13.5) 7th in complete defense (279.3) 13th in pa s defense (171.8)
Baylor 2nd in nation in totaloffense (590.6) 1st in scoring offense (51.0) 2nd overall offense (590.6) 8th in pa s offense (343.2)
Ranked games
Baylor coach Art Briles is 4-3 against ranked Big 12 teams since 2012, which has a 4-0 record both at home and 0-3 record while travelling. TCU coach Gary Patterson is 3-6 against ranked Big 12 teams since joining the conference, such as a 2-2 record driving on the road.
MORE: Top ten Baylor Bears among all time
Spotlight player: Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU
The third-year starter doubles given that the Horned Frogs leading rusher, and Brad Nortman Jersey hes making a good decisions when using the football. Boykin has 10 TDs and just two interceptions. Young drivers . illuminated Baylor this year with 261 pa sing yards and four TDs.
Heisman hopeful: Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
Oklahoma and TCU were the only real two teams to limit Petty towards a Two completion percentage last season. Petty struggled yesterday evening against Texas (7-of-22, 111 yards, 2 TDs), as well as also took three sacks. Could be the back injury a lingering problem? TCU ranks 12th in america with 15 sacks, and thats in a mere four games.
LINEMAKERS: Who's the widely accepted to win the Heisman Trophy?
On make sure that: Sam Carter, S, TCU
Carter, a NFL prospect, is the leader in the Horned Frogs secondary. Throughout the last four matchups against Baylor, the Bears have eight TD pa ses of 30 yards and up. TCU limited that to merely the last season. The 3-3-5 look may give an opposing quarterback fits, Trevor Knight threw two costly picks a couple weeks ago and completed just Forty percent of his pa ses.
MORE: First-and-10: Blaming Big 12 officials is a bad look
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-game trend: TCUs yards per carry
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. Busine ses: 2011 (5.7, 2 TDs), 2012 (4.4, 3 Kelvin Benjamin Jersey TDs), 2013 (3.7, 2 TDs). Junior running back B.J. Catalon averages 4.8 yards per carry and features scored at least one rushing TD in most game there is much surprise. Must become a factor.
MORE NUMBERS: No. 2 Auburn at No. 3 Mi si sippi State
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.
Did you will know?
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.

  Drafting College Catchers a Risky Busine
Příspěvek od: sherry2018love - 23. 10. 2017, 06:17 - Fórum: Dekorace do dětského pokoje - Žádné odpovědi

Finding a reliable pro catcher from the collegiate ranks is harder than you may think. Only 10 out of the 30 projected 2012 starting catchers at the MLB level originated from a university program. The majority of the backstops came from the international market or the prep ranks. Those 10 players are:
Jonathan Lucroy, Milwaukee Brewers, Louisiana at Lafayette, (3rd round)Chris Snyder, Houston Astros, U Houston (2nd)Nick Hundley, San Diego Padres, U Arizona (2nd)Buster Posey, Bay area Giants, Florida State U (1st)Tim Federowicz, Los Angeles Dodgers, U North Carolina 7thChris Iannetta, La Angels, U North Carolina (4th)Kurt Suzuki, Oakland Athletics, Cal State (4th)J.P. Arencibia, Toronto Blue Jays, U Tenne see (1st)Matt Wieters, Baltimore Orioles, Georgia Tech (1st)Alex Avila, Detroit Tigers, U Alabama (5th)
Lets take a look at the introduction to the school catchers taken in the very first five rounds of history six drafts ( Mike Sims-Walker Jersey 2006-11). A total of 41 backstops were taken and signed during that span. Generally its a fairly uninspired group with the odd exception (Matt Wieters, Buster Posey).
(Name, Current Club, College)
2011James McCann, Detroit Tigers, ArkansasAndrew Susac, Bay area Giants, Oregon StatePratt Maynard, Los Angeles Dodgers, North Carolina StateJohn Hicks, Seattle Mariners, VirginiaJake Lowery, Cleveland Indians, James MadisonBeau Taylor, Oakland Athletics, Central Florida
Its far too early to form a lot of opinions on the college catching crop from 2011. However, McCann and Susac enter 2012 with the highest profiles.
2010Yasmani Grandal, San Diego Padres, MiamiMike Kvasnicka, Houston Astros, MinnesotaBlake Forsythe, New York Mets, Tenne seeMicah Gibbs, Chicago Cubs, Louisiana StateRob Brantly, Detroit Tigers, UC RiversideCameron Rupp, Philadelphia Phillies, TexasCody Stanley, St. Louis Cardinals, UNC WilmingtonBen Heath, Houston Astros, Penn State
Grandal was the star attraction this year, going 12th overall to the Cincinnati Reds who later flipped him towards the Padres within the Mat Latos deal. The Astros originally relocated Kvasnicka to some le s demand position hoping that it would allow his bat to propel him quickly through the system. The brand new front office, though, recognized that he has much more value if he sticks using the tools of ignorance.
2009Tony Sanchez, Pittsburgh Pirates, Boston CollegeJosh Phegley, Chicago White Sox, IndianaRobert Stock, St. Louis Cardinals, Southern CaliforniaMark Fleury, Cincinnati Reds, North CarolinaJason Hagerty, North park Padres, MiamiJ.T. Wise, La Dodgers, OklahomaToby Streich, Minnesota Twins, West Virginia
Both Sanchez and Phegley have seen their values take a hit due to significant stints around the disabled list. I have Sanchez earmarked like a breakout prospect for 2012 as he looks to put his previous i sues behind him. Stock, a really highly regarded two-way player in high school, recently threw in the towel squatting behind the plate and returned to the bump hoping kick-starting his floundering pro career. Hagerty is a sleeper. Hes hit better within the 'abnormal' amounts of pro ball than expected but he struggled this year both in double-A and also the Arizona Fall League. The 2012 season will be huge for him because he returns to double-A within an organization that has some pretty solid catching depth.
2008Buster Posey, Bay area Giants, Florida StateJason Castro, Houston Astros, StanfordJake Jefferies, Tampa Bay Rays, UC DavisPetey Paramore, Oakland Athletics, Arizona StateAlex Avila, Detroit Tigers, AlabamaDock Doyle, Ny Mets, Coastal Carolina
Posey is arguably the very best college catcher acquired through the Chris Reed Jersey draft between 2006 and 11. Like many on this list, though, hes been slowed by injuries. Exactly the same can be said for Castro who'll look to end up being the Astros starting catcher in 2012. Avila has been a huge steal for that Tigers thanks to an outbreak 2011 season that saw him a sert himself as one of the best young catchers in baseball.
2007Matt Wieters, Baltimore Orioles, Georgia TechJ.P. Arencibia, Toronto Blue Jays, Tenne seeJackson Williams, Bay area Giants, OklahomaJosh Donaldson, Oakland Athletics, AuburnMitch Canham, San Diego Padres, Oregon StateEd Easley, Arizona Diamondbacks, Mi si sippi StateJonathan Lucroy, Milwaukee Brewers, Louisiana LafayetteLars Davis, Colorado Rockies, IllinoisAndrew Walker, Pittsburgh Pirates, Texas Christian
From a pure quantity standpoint, the 07 draft was a solid one for catchers as three big league starting catchers came from this draft: Wieters, Arencibia, and Lucroy. Williams and Easley are two very good defensive catchers who just havent hit good enough to settle into back-up jobs. Donaldson, originally drafted by the Cubs, happens to be being regarded as an alternative at the hot corner for injured As third baseman Scott Sizemore so his days behind the dish are mostly anything of the past.
2006Matt McBride, Colorado Rockies, LehighChad Tracy, Colorado Rockies, PepperdineJon Still, Boston Red Sox, North Sen'Derrick Marks Jersey Carolina StateTyler Reves, Chicago White Sox, Texas TechChris Hatcher, Miami Marlins, UNC Wilmington
The most interesting name out of this draft is Hatcher, who made his MLB debut as a catcher this year however moved to the mound in 11 and returned towards the big leagues like a reliever just a few short months later. Tracy were built with a nice offensive season in triple-A this year but hes quit catching and the best hope for a decent paycheck might hinge on his willingne s to experience in Japan.
* * *
With the 2012 college baseball season in its infancy here is a listing of the top five college catchers who've been ranked among Perfect Games Top 200 draft-eligible prospects. Only the first two appear to have a go at going in the first round.
1. Mike Zunino, Florida (Oakland As, 2009, 29th)2. Josh Elander, Texas Christian (Washington Nationals, 2009, 37th)3. Tom Murphy, Buffalo (Never drafted)4. Peter OBrien, Miami (Colorado Rockies, 2011, 3rd)5. Dane Phillips, Oklahoma City (Seattle Mariners, 2009, 49th)
Others: Ronnie Freeman, Kennesaw State (Never drafted), Kevin Plawecki, Purdue (Never drafted)
Scouting Reports
Mike Zunino: Its easy to see why Zunino is easily the most highly coveted catcher within the college ranks. He offers solid defensive skills to visit along with an outstanding offensive game, which includes above-average opposite field power. At the plate he shows a quiet lower half having a short stride but he might need to quiet his hands as he joins the profe sional ranks. He's a sturdy body that should withstand the rigors of catching but hell have to watch his conditioning.
Josh Elander: Elander looks a little more athletic and loose compared to average college catcher but Im not a fan of his hitting mechanics. He gets jumpy on off-speed pitches and gets out on his feet. Elander have decent bat speed but his swing is long and that he doesnt perform the best job of transferring his weight during his swing, which eliminates his natural power. He's a little bit more fleet-of-foot than the average catcher and that he shows good movement behind the plate too but his Peyton Thompson Jersey defensive skills are simply average. He's plus makeup and powerful leadership.
Tom Murphy: Murphy reaches his best when he uses a line-drive swing but, all too often, he incorporates a metal bat approach to his swing. It really works OK for him attending college ball but many of those hits may turn into lazy fly balls in the pro ranks. He doesnt use his lower half enough in his swing and relies on his torso and arms they are driving the ball. Murphy is an average defender with decent pop times but his receiving skills take some work. He has a reputation to be a powerful worker who is a pa sionate teammate.
Peter OBrien: OBrien turned down a chance to play pro ball after the Colorado Rockies drafted him in the third round of the 2011 draft. He was almost ineligible to experience his senior year of college ball as he made a decision to transfer from Bethune-Cookman to the University of Miami. The NCAA originally deemed him ineligible after the transfer but reversed its decision after OBrien appealed the decision. He has a strong, lean frame. OBrien has power potential while at bat but he might not hit for any great batting average. His mechanics are stiff and he bends on the bit an exce sive amount of throughout his swing, causing inconsistent contact that could lead to a large amount of weak fly balls and pop-ups with wood bats. OBrien is not the most gifted fielder but he works hard in internet marketing and it has improved a lot since graduating senior high school. His best defensive a set is his strong arm.
Dane Phillips: Phillips needs to get his bat into a better starting position; it looks like a defunct fish on his shoulder before the pitcher releases the ball. The left-handed hitter is slow getting his hands started, which hurts his bat speed and causes him to lunge at pitches, rather than sweep the bat smoothly through the hitting zone. Phillips continues to be raw behind the plate and it remains to be seen if he can stick there in pro ball. His arm is fringe-average behind the dish and his receiving skills need a lot of polish.

Star Federal Court Hearing In San Jose vs. ML
Příspěvek od: sherry2018love - 20. 10. 2017, 16:28 - Fórum: Před otěhotněním - Žádné odpovědi

The federal Demetrius Cherry Jersey judge overseeing the antitrust lawsuit through the Town of San Jose against Major League Baseball held an instance management conference Friday morning. But the hearing handled weightier i sues as compared to the usual case management conference. Most particularly, a legal court is deciding whether to dismi s the two remaining state regulations claims for interference with contract and allow those claims to be re-filed in state court. If that's the case, the court would enter final judgment in the federal case, and San Jose would have the authority to immediately appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
The hearing came 8 weeks after Judge Ronald M. Whyte i sued an order that dismi sed San Joses antitrust claims based on the court-created antitrust exemption for MLB. Within the same order, the court held that San Jose had adequately pled two claims for interference with contract, on the theory that MLBs delay for making a decision around the As proposal to maneuver to San Jose had interfered with the As option agreement with San Jose to purchase five acres of land in downtown San Jose on which to construct a brand new ballpark. My previous post around the Courts ruling is here now.
Judge Whyte began Fridays hearing by proclaiming that he was tentatively inclined to dismi s their state court claims. He then heard arguments by attorneys for the parties: John Keker for MLB and Philip Gregory for San Jose.
MLB asked Judge Whyte to hold to the state regulations claims and then stay the case, while the Santa Clara Superior Court decides a different lawsuit challenging, among other things, the validity from the option agreement. That action, filed with a group called Are a symbol of San Jose, is considered to be an attempt through the San Francisco Giants to achieve the option agreement invalidated. You can read more on that state legal action here, here, and here. There will be a hearing in the state court case next Friday, December 20.
Keker argued when the option agreement is invalid, then San Jose doesnt even have standing to sue MLB on antitrust grounds, which may make an appeal of the Aldon Smith Jersey exemption ruling moot. Keker also raised concerns of a three-court circus that will arise if the federal action is dismi sed, but appealed, and San Jose proceeds using the interference claims in state court.
Once they Mario Edwards Jersey heard Judge Whytes tentative ruling, attorneys for San Jose e sentially submitted the problem. San Jose wants the opportunity to get the exemption i sue prior to the appeals court and, eventually, the U.S. Supreme Court as quickly as po sible. Joe Cotchett, lead attorney for San Jose, spoke to reporters following the hearing and expre sed confidence that tide has completed courts against the antitrust exemption and its merely a matter of time before the U.S. Top court limits or eliminates the exemption.
Amid the procedural skirmishing, Judge Whyte asked MLB concerning the letter the league apparently sent in April rejecting the As proposal for any San Jose ballpark. The existence of that letter was big news last Saturday, after MLB referenced it in its case management conference statement to the court in advance of todays hearing. My post on it is here.
Keker told a legal court the letter should remain confidential since it contains proprietary busine s details about the As proposal and finances. Keker then said: The proposal by the As was unequivocally denied. There isn't any other proposal by the As pending prior to the Commi sioner.
Judge Whyte concluded the hearing by stating that he was leaning toward adopting his tentative ruling to dismi s their state law claims without prejudice and TJ Carrie Jersey enter final judgment.
Some have questioned why attorneys for San Jose would want the situation dismi sed from federal court now. The large i sue in the case continues to be and will be baseballs antitrust exemption. The fastest method of getting an appeals court and also the Top court to limit or eliminate the exemption is as simple as appealing Judge Whytes order immediately.
Yes, San Jose wants discovery into MLBs decision-making proce s, but it can seek that discovery in a condition legal action whether it chooses to pursue the interference claims. Indeed, from San Joses perspective, all the chaos it can cause within the courts the greater, in the hopes that MLB will be concerned enough about losing its exemption and it is control of the relocation procedure that it would accept let the As proceed to San Jose. Thats an extended shot strategy, but thats all San Jose has at this time.
Judge Whyte is likely to i sue an order before the Christmas.


Smile FanGraphs Crowd- Yoan Moncada8217s Contr
Příspěvek od: sherry2018love - 20. 10. 2017, 16:27 - Fórum: Před otěhotněním - Žádné odpovědi

Yesterday, FanGraphs facilitated a brief crowdsourcing project having a view towards estimating Cuban defector Yoan Moncadas signing bonus and other relevant information in regards to the 19-year-old infielder.
What follows are the results of that effort followed by analysis courtesy FanGraphs lead prospect analyst Kiley McDaniel.
***
Signing BonusMoncada will likely get the largest bonus ever given to a free agent whos also susceptible to Major League Baseballs international free agent rules. (Note: the figures below do not range from the 100% tax to which Moncadas signing club Justin Coleman Jersey will be subject.)
Heres the median figure as projected by the crowd: $45.0 million.
And heres the typical figure: $43.3 million.
And heres a histogram of po sible outcomes with additionally a Cuban flag without anyone's knowledge:
***
Likely ClubThe crowd regards the New York Yankees because the probably destination for Moncada, with roughly 48% of respondents gue sing that hell end up with that club.
Here would be the crowds responses in the form of a pie chart laid atop a picture of Wade Boggs riding triumphantly upon a horse:
***
Signing DateAs reported by Kiley McDaniel with that same afternoon, Moncada finally became permitted to sign having a major-league club .
Here would be the crowds estimates regarding when hell do this:
This Week: 7%Next Week: 41%Feb. 16-28: 43%March: 8%Later: 1%
***
Analysis by Kiley McDanielAfter the initial, logical and source-supported buzz that the Yankees and Red Sox were the real contenders for Moncada early on, the Dodgers have finally become the leader. Between their willingne s to spend big, their relatively quiet spending this off-season and the history of their new top Jonathan Cooper Jersey executives, most in the industry feel the Dodgers goes highest within the Moncada bidding.
With Tampa Bay, new Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman went over his international bonus pool twice, the most teams he might have po sibly done it underneath the new rules. In their most recent pool-busting season, the Rays did it basically to sign one player, who most thought was the very best player in the cla s (Dominican SS Adrian Rondon).
When he was the A Montee Ball Jersey sistant GM with the As, new Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi was instrumental is the small market team spending $36 million on Yoenis Cespedes, at any given time when Cuban hitters didnt have a great track record of MLB succe s. It likely doesnt hurt that the Dodgers also have a distinct Cuban influence with Yasiel Puig, Yasmani Grandal, Alex Guerrero and Erisbel Arruebarrena.
The Yankees probably need Moncada the most as their core players are aging out and, as the Bombers are trending on the farm, they dont po se s the elite and near MLB-ready talent that the Red Sox and Dodgers po se s. That combined with the $30 million they allocated to this years international crop (double the amount previous record) and the coming two-year penalty on high dollar international amateur spending makes the Yankees probably the most motivated to spend big. There have been some restraint for that Yankees on big-dollar signings recently compared to their previous standard, but Moncada wouldnt have luxury tax implications, so hes more akin to a large amateur outlay that will stand in for two years of spending, as opposed to a big league free agent.
The Red Sox are near full with bats in the upper levels and large leagues James Develin Jersey and also have spent heavily this off-season, so theyre seen as more of a third team in this derby. There are several rumors of teams on the fringes that may get involved like a finalist (the Tigers, As, Braves, Giants, Brewers, Padres have all been mentioned by sources as likely to bid), but every indication Ive gotten is that the next tier of teams is hoping the power is about $30 million to allow them to participate, with many thinking the price ends up at $40 million or more, likely knocking those teams out. The Rangers and Cubs need to sit out until July 2nd due to past overspending and, due to the Moncada camps need to sign quickly, theyre basically eliminated despite efforts to obtain him to hold back. The Dodgers then the Yankees is when the handicaps it at this point, using the Red Sox atop of group of interested teams that are likely not willing to spend quite enough to hang with the favorites.

MCG Origin crowd biggest, yet not best
Leagues biggest Condition of Origin crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground will probably be nowhere at the highest gro sing game league has hosted.
Why? Because tickets were so cheap that a fantastic 55,000 crowd at Suncorp Stadium inside series decider is definitely worth much more.
The average ticket price in Melbourne was round the $50 mark.
The NRL was desirous to fill the stadium and did the best job to get a decent crowd though the bean counters at headquarters werent pleased in the end result.


  Trent Dilfer eerily predicted Jameis Win

In 2011, before any of the fame or perhaps the accolades or the glitter of his trophies, there would be a younger Jameis Winston with nothing to make available college football games fans but a n entire world of hope and promise.
And in the Elite 11 quarterback camp that summer, former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer recognized who advertise.
He predicted that Jaron Brown Jersey any particular one day Winston would encounter an organization that challenged him physically, forcing him to trust in his mental acuity and quick thinking to cart his team.
"3rd-and-7, down by four, fourth quarter," said Dilfer to Winston simply because unknowingly dictated the young signal-caller's future.
"They're gonna stop you while in the pocket. They aren't gonna let you be Patrick Peterson Jersey fast and quick and the only thing that. Which is just going to be a mistake because you're gonna beat 'em there."
A young Winston believed that imaginary scenario.
And then, a couple of years later, he delivered to Dilfer and also world a virtually Ted Larsen Jersey identical scenario in the 2014 BCS National Championship game.
The Seminoles trailed the Auburn Tigers by four points inside the fourth quarter, and Winston faced a 3rd-and-8 situation.
As the pocket collapsed around him, he calmly threw for the middle towards the end zone on the play that was ultimately flagged for pa Mike Iupati Jersey s interference (within the 2:55 mark of your video).
Winston converted the next play towards the game-winning touchdown, capping off an undefeated season for those National Champion Florida State Seminoles.
Do you think that in fate yet?

David Krejci had two goals A.J. Bouye Jersey and Patrice Bergeron scored his 30th of this year for Boston. Tuukka Rask made 24 saves.
The Blues, meanwhile, are generally stuck on 111 points for five consecutive games and they are in danger of falling out of your top spot both in the Western Marcus Rush Jersey Conference and Central Division.
Their slide has coincided with a 8-1-1 hot streak through Colorado Avalanche, who currently would win the most notable seed in line with tiebreakers that mean St. Louis draws a first-round matchup with the Blackhawks. Not ideal.

Tongue Historical Position Adjustments
Příspěvek od: sherry2018love - 20. 10. 2017, 16:21 - Fórum: Mateřská centra - Žádné odpovědi

Here on Fangraphs there have been lots of posts around the relative worth of different positions. I accept the concept that position adjustments should be based on relative defensive skill and player scarcity (as the infield positions draw talent from the smaller pool; lefthanders cant play there) instead of the inverse of batting production.
Using my TotalZone defensive data (according to retrosheet play by play files) I looked at defensive differentials by decade, in the 1950s (actually beginning with 1953) to the 2000s. I look at players who played two different positions in the same year, and aggregate these kinds of player-seasons grouped by decade. With grouping by decade, Ive increased the sample size players. Im also limiting my sample size by only looking at players who played multiple positions in one season, but this is nece sary to prevent distortion brought on by aging such as a player who was a shortstop in 1961 along with a third baseman in 1968. Im leaving out catchers and first basemen and concentrating on the relative value of outfielders, second and third basemen, and shortstops.
For the newest period of time, I use Tango Tigers position adjustments, which are also used here on Fangraphs on the player valuation sections. They're:
SS +7.52B, 3B, CF +2.5LF, RF 7.5
The TotalZone information is reasonably close to this. Center fielders are 8.7 runs per full season better than corner outfielders. Shortstops are 4.7 runs much Oni Omoile Jersey better than third basemen and 4.2 runs much better than second basemen. Second basemen are 1.4 runs much better than third basemen. The results are not identical, but close enough that I dont see value in arguing about the subject. You could make 2B +3 and 3B +2, but still maintain balance, but its only half a run.
Tangos adjustments show an average gap of 8.3 runs between the three infield positions and also the 3 outfield positions. TotalZone shows only a 3.2 run difference when looking at players who played both infield and outfield in the same season. Are we overvaluing infielders?
There are two problems here. One is handedne s, all players can potentially play the outfield, only right-handed throwers play the infield. Additionally, movement between your positions is nearly entirely one-way. Teams don't have any trouble taking an infielder and asking him to experience the outfield. Some examples from the top of my head are Jerry Hairston, Willie Bloomquist, Ryan Freel, and Chone Figgins. How many outfielders are sent to play second, third, and short? Very, very few, mostly in emergencies, such as when multiple players harmed or even the game goes deep into extra innings. Im keeping in mind Juan Riveras second base appearance last year, however i doubt the Angels intend on him doing it again.
I believe that when it comes to infielders vs. outfielders it's appropriate to look at the relative offense at the positions. I dont think this really is appropriate to compare center fielders to left fielders, if center fielders outhit left fielders and outfield them, they be more effective players, period, so we shouldn't artificially set the positions as equal in value. For 2000 to 2008, outfielders hit better than infielders towards the tune of 11.3 runs per season. Average this with the observed defensive difference so we get 7.3 runs, just one off from what Tangos adjustments imply. For previous decades, I'll use the average offensive and defensive adjustments between your infield and outfield groups. Within the particular groups, my adjustments will be completely based on the defensive differences.
1990s:
The gap between infield and outfield is very similar- 12.7 on offense, 3.5 on defense, typically 8.1. Center fielders were 10.6 runs much better than corner outfielders. To date, it appears pretty similar. Shortstops, however, were 7.6 runs better than Clive Walford Jersey third basemen and 6.3 runs better than second basemen. There was just a 0.2 gap between second and third, in support of the 2nd basemen. For this decade, Ill change things a bit by providing more credit towards the shortstops. The 1990s adjustments:
SS +92B +23B +1.5CF +2.5RF, LF 7.5
The 1980s
Here there exists a larger gap between infield and outfield, 15.8 on offense, 5.1 on defense, for a 10.5 average. There is just a 7.5 run gap between corner outfielders and center, which should not be a surprise. In recent years weve seen Adam Dunn, Manny Ramirez, Raul Ibanez, Josh Willingham, Carlos Lee, Hideki Matsui, Pat Burrell, and Jack Cust play left field. That lumbering group represents more than 25% of starting left fielders. In the 1980s we'd Rickey!, Tim Raines, Vince Coleman, Willie Wilson, and Gary Redus playing left field. Im sure there were some terrible left Seth Roberts Jersey fielders back then as well, and guys like Carl Crawford, Eric Byrnes, and Dave Roberts buck the popularity, however i believe that on average the left fielder of 1985 was faster than his 2005 counterpart.
Shortstops were 6.6 runs much better than third basemen and three.3 better than second basemen. Second basemen were 4.7 runs ahead of third basemen.
For the 1980s I personally use these adjustments:
SS + 9, 2B +5, 3B +1CF +0, RF, LF 7.5
The 1970s
The infield/outfield gap keeps getting bigger once we go back over time, with this decade its 20.2 on offense and eight.6 on defense. Center fielders had only a 5.6 run edge over the corners. Second basemen were 7.6 runs worse than shortstops, but 3.4 run better than third basemen. So when we add that up, shortstops should have been 10 or even more runs better than third basemen, right?
If only it was that easy. In fact, players who played both third and short within the 1970s were 1.1 runs worse as third basemen. Sometimes the bits of this data puzzle do not fit very well together. In almost every other decade, shortstops were a minimum of 4.7 runs better than third basemen and a minimum of 6.6 runs excluding the 2000s. For the 1970s another pieces shortstop to 2B, 2B to 3B, show the normal pattern. Chalk that one up to a fluke, and Ill try to make the adjustments make sense.
The adjustments:
SS +102B, 3B +4CF 2LF, RF 8
The 1960s
The infield/outfield gap was the same as the 1970s on offense, 20.2 runs, and three.7 runs on defense. Center fielders were 8.7 runs ahead of corner outfielders. Shortstops were built with a 7.2 run advantage on third and 5.1 on second. 2B and 3B were e sentially despite a 0.2 run difference (2B slightly better). Since the above were equal, I kept them as equals in the adjustments, and averaged their gap with shortstop to help make the shortstops 6 runs better than other infielders.
The adjustments:
SS +102B, 3B +4CF +0RF, LF -9
And finally the 1950s
Outfielders out-hit infielders by 19.9 runs, while infielders had an 8.7 run Ian Silberman Jersey defensive advantage. Center fielders were 7.2 runs better than corner outfielders. Shortstops were 7.5 runs in front of third base, and 5.3 runs ahead of second. Those last two figures are similar to the 1960s, but since second baseman had a 3 run advantage on third base, I changed their relative value a bit in the adjustments:
SS +102B +53B +2CF 1LF, RF 8
Using these position adjustments can result in conclusions that not all positions are created equal. Sometimes we may find that center fielders hit as well or much better than corner outfielders. Or else shortstops hit the same or equal as second basemen. Their defensive value is still superior, and in such situations well find that one position includes a better collection of baseball talent than another has. Most likely youll discover that teams recognize this, and spend the money for positions differently as well.


Rainbow Another Hypothetical Heath Bell Deal
Příspěvek od: sherry2018love - 20. 10. 2017, 16:19 - Fórum: Mateřská centra - Žádné odpovědi

The Miami Marlins grand experiment hasnt worked this year, leading to the trades of Hanley Ramirez, Anibal Sanchez, Omar Infante and Randy Choate prior to the non-waiver trade deadline. Inside a perfect world, they wouldnt have experienced to trade those players, because they would be fighting for a playoff spot at this time in the season. But it hasnt been a perfect world for the Marlins, and one of the major imperfections may be the performance of high-priced reliever Heath Bell.
Signed to a lucrative three-year deal this offseason, Bell was supposed to help transform the Marlins into legitimate championship contenders. He's, however, been quite bad, losing the confidence of his manager and also the closer role itself, there havent been any indications of him turning things around.
The Marlins have previously unloaded numerous valuable a sets, but have had trouble finding a suitor for Bell. Thats what has a tendency to happen with relievers who make a lot of cash despite being shells of the former selves. Bell had been from the Red Sox in a rumor that had him and Hanley heading to Boston in return for Carl Crawford. The offer never materialized, but it was a quite interesting thought experiment, because the salaries getting swapped were Shaq Mason Jersey similar and the move represented a change-of-scenery challenge for those involved.
According to some recent Ken Rosenthal report, the Marlins were engaged in another change-of-scenery challenge trade involving Bell this week. This time, they spoke towards the Mets about trading Bell and catcher John Buck for Jason Bay. No formal deal was proposed and also the idea didnt truly gain traction, but it again represented a fascinating idea. Considering that no other team will relieve the Marlins of Bells salary, or the Mets of Bays, this is a deal worth revisiting before the waiver deadline.
The mechanics of the deal seem sensible for both sides. Bell is owed approximately $2 million this year, and $9 million in each from the next two seasons. He's a $9 million option in 2015 contingent upon finishing 55 games the year before, or 100 games over 2013-14. Buck may also make around $2 million within the remaining season, and makes $6 million next year before hitting free agency. Bay has around $5.4 million remaining on his 2012 contract, and is set to make $16 million next year. He has a $17 million club option Markus Kuhn Jersey ($3 million buyout) that's guaranteed if he tallies 600 PAs in 2013 or 500 PAs in both 2012-13. But forget the options, simply because they wont trigger and arent getting exercised.
Bay has only logged 137 PAs this season, and its unlikely that Bell will finish all those games if he is constantly on the pitch this poorly. Its e sentially a Catch-22 for players: when they were playing well, they'd rack up the PAs and GFs, which makes it far more likely the options trigger. However, when they were performing well to that particular extent, neither team would look to get this to type of swap. The whole perception of a change-of-scenery deal would be that the players switching teams might need a fresh start getting their respective grooves back.
In relation to money changing hands, if the deal went down today, the Marlins would trade away $4 million this year salary and produce back $5.4 million. Next season, the Marlins might have traded away $15 million and purchased $16 million. In 2014, the Mets would pay Bells $9 million salary while Bay could be taken Martellus Bennett Jersey off the Marlins books save for the $3 million buyout.
Overall, the Marlins spend le s money, as the Mets would stick to the hook for Bells 2014 salary after Bays and Bucks contracts expire. However, in removing Bay within this hypothetical deal, and treating the money as a sunk cost, the Mets would potentially po se s a decent reliever in Bell and a backup catcher with power in Buck, if everything calculates. Plus, they would remove Bay in the lineup permanently, which enables them to use an actual productive player in left field continuing to move forward.
Since the money is actually exactly the same over 2012-13, it seemingly makes lots of sense for the Mets to pursue this type of move. Buck has struggled this season but is a league average player within the previous two seasons. And, for all we know, Bell is a headcase who could notice a trade because the new beginning he required to right the ship. Both he and Buck have more po sibility to enhance the Mets than does Bay.
From the Marlins point of view, this move would be about shedding long-term payroll and allowing the perception of starting over, because they save $4-5 million in 2014. However, Bay has been so bad and inconsistent in both health insurance and performance over the last three seasons that its unlikely he would do much of Joe Cardona Jersey anything. In pursuing this move, the Marlins would be clearly valuing the long-term payroll relief over potential returned production.
Both teams are going to pay unproductive players similar levels of money within the next handful of seasons. There are potential benefits for both sides here, with the Mets bringing in relatively higher upside players while the Marlins garner some salary relief. As the 3 players are likely to go through waivers, dont be surprised if the accumulates steam within the next few weeks.
