Waiting for the big picture

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 02, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Atlanta Braves signed Billy Wagner today, and in the process they gave the Boston Red Sox a first-round draft pick and a supplemental draft pick between the first and second rounds. All that for a guy who pitched fewer than 14 innings for Boston.

It’s easy to point to this move and claim it’s proof of a broken system — and maybe it is — but back in August, when the Red Sox traded two spare parts for Wagner, the fact that the Red Sox had the right to offer Wagner arbitration but not pick up his option was reported. It was a known and accepted part of the trade. When Wagner became a Type-A free agent, it became perhaps the most important part of the deal. Love or hate the Red Sox, it now seems to be a heckuva move for Boston.

The balance of power hasn’t shifted. The baseball world hasn’t flipped upside down. Theo Epstein made a nice move, that’s all. The thing to take from it is that there’s always a bigger picture. Trading for Wagner was a short-term move in August. It’s become a long-term move in December.

As much as fans and media would love to see the Yankees get the offseason wheeling and dealing started, the truth is that patience remains a virtue. Brian Cashman is going to meet with his owners. He’s going to gather his scouts. He’s going to talk to his manager. He’s going to set a game plan.

Then he’s going to act.

Quick, small-picture moves destroy good baseball teams. Cashman is a big picture kind of guy. That’s a good thing for the Yankees.

    Really it boils down to the Red Sox paid 3.5 million to buy a #1 draft pick. Smart move but please let us not hear from the living skeleton crypt keeper looking Red Sox owner anymore about buying anything.

  2. RonH December 2nd, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    Great analysis, Chad. Patience and faith in Cash is the way to look at the big picture.

    Like the Wicked Witch said in the Wizard of Oz, ” All in due time …”

    Well said. I’m still celebrating #27. I’ll start thinking about it when I have something to think about.

  4. Phil December 2nd, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    He already met with his guys and came up with ideas, they just have to run it by the Steinbrenners tomorrow and Friday.

  5. m December 2nd, 2009 at 8:51 pm

    So, Theo is batting .500 with trading for closers late in the season. We’ll always have the Gagne affair to laugh about.

  6. Torro December 2nd, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    Have a feeling the Mets did this just to screw us.

    Wagner said that he wants to be a closer and would not be a SU man past this year. It was a lock that he’d decline, yet the Mets decide they would rather forfeit free 1sr round picks in favor of an AAAA player. Two 1st round picks available to stock a barren system and they passed.

  9. Jimmy December 2nd, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    How do we know that Casey Kelly isin’t Greg Maddux?

    You don’t have to throw 100 MPH to be successful….

  10. CR9 December 2nd, 2009 at 8:58 pm

    Jimmy

    Regardless of whether he is or not, he has not surpassed A ball, and he has yet to even pick a position. He is made out to be the 2nd coming of Christ. When in actuality, he will probably be the 2nd coming of Cesar Crespo.

  11. Rich in NJ December 2nd, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    The Yankees aren’t going to set the market this year. Waiting for the market to come to them takes more time.

    “Have a feeling the Mets did this just to screw us.”

    You may recall that Minaya once traded Cliff Lee, Grady Sizemore, and Brandon Phillips for Bartolo Colon. He’s just a really, really, really bad GM.

  12. Brian December 2nd, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    The whole point of the trade was the money still owed to Wagner. You should at least mention that in your analysis of the trade. For the money they paid Wagner for his 14 innings they could of added signed Mark Teixeira for the $2 million more per year it would of taken to keep him away from the Yankees.

  13. m December 2nd, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    Greg Maddux was a position player?!

  14. bru December 2nd, 2009 at 9:02 pm

  15. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 2nd, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    I would much rather us save our chips for next off-season. We’re already a contender, as is, for next season. I don’t want us giving up anything for Halladay., when we can just sign one of the Studd FA’s next year.

  16. Ham Fighters December 2nd, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    speaking of minaya, how unbelievable is is that that guys still has his job? he must have compromising pictures of the wilpons.

    but then again, wilpon was a ‘good friend’ of madoff, so that certainly brings his judgement into question…

  17. CR9 December 2nd, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    m
    You do know that Kelly is a switch pitcher and a shortstop, and can play both positions at the same time, right?

    But seriously, he is a “RHP”

  18. m December 2nd, 2009 at 9:11 pm

    Ham,

    No one thinks Henry’s the devil incarnate. He’s just a well-dressed buffoon. A petty, green-eyed *rick.

  19. Y 27 December 2nd, 2009 at 9:11 pm

    Kelly had a .607 OPS as a SS this year.

    The only reason he still plays it is because the Sox promised him they would give him an opportunity to do so. Clearly, he isin’t going to continue there.

    So now he is Ian Kennedy, yet he is portrayed like Tim Lincecum.

  20. Ham Fighters December 2nd, 2009 at 9:11 pm

    boogie down, good call, i love halladay, but i dont want to see them give up the farm for him. this team is getting pretty old and going back to the days of sending all our young talent out for aging vets who look great at the time has not proven to be all that great a plan.

    i say let the sock give up 3 or 4 primo prospects, plus pay halladay $20M+ per year on a 5 year deal and i think the yankees end up much better in the long run.

  21. bru December 2nd, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    cashman is smart & will not get burned

    no way he trades joba,ajax & montero for doc

    i also think cash is not so high on joba & would rather trade him over hughes

    yankees & jays are talking & if cash can do a deal that makes sense he will.if not he will pass

    we assume it will take joba,ajax & montero to get it done when it might take kennedy,mcallister,romine or joba,romine & kennedy/mcallister

  22. Rich in NJ December 2nd, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    “The whole point of the trade was the money still owed to Wagner.?

    Except it has now been reported that the Mets’ accounts with Madoff actually made money, so that earlier report may have been false.

  23. JGS December 2nd, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    I think it says that the Elias rankings are broken more than the arbitration process. Elias massively overvalues relievers (LaTroy Hawkins is a Type A)

  24. Jerkface December 2nd, 2009 at 9:15 pm

    How do we know that Casey Kelly isin’t Greg Maddux?

    Because Casey Kelly doesn’t have pinpoint control of 4 pitches which all have the most insane movement possible on them?

    Maddux could throw you the same type of pitch 100 times and have 100 different pitches based on movement/speed/location

  25. Joe December 2nd, 2009 at 9:15 pm

    I remember back in 07, Buck and Aikman were doing the Skins/Patriots game on Sunday and Aikman showed up to Fenway in a Sox cap during the Rockies/Sox WS a couple days earlier.

    if you still wondering, Rebecca is dating the Mike Ashmore of Trenton Thunder beatwriter. I found that out from his facebook.

    Nick, lol I got no idea. beats me.

  30. Steve December 2nd, 2009 at 9:27 pm

    Yes, the Sox paid $3M for a few innings from a reliever they had no need for.

    it’s great for them that it turned into draft picks, but it’s really not THAT big of a deal.

    that $3M could have just been spent in the lower rounds of the draft on 4-5 signability guys.

    it was a good move for them, but it wasn’t like it didn’t cost them ANYTHING. the $3M seems to be forgotten amongst all the wailing and gnashing of teeth.

  31. Rich in NJ December 2nd, 2009 at 9:28 pm

    Speaking of Mashmore, he had entry that the Mariners hired Bill Masse as a scout. Masse once said that Melky would win a batting title. I wonder if Seattle might have some interest in him now (although, obviously not as a CF).

  32. bru December 2nd, 2009 at 9:30 pm

    without the aging vets we dont win the ws
    a lot of them just happen to be our own

    the smart thing we did this time is only sign the right fa in their prime & kept most of our prospects instead of trading our prospects for the wrong players past their primes

    it takes a combination of trades,fa & kids to get it done

    if you only sign,sign,sign the payroll is through the roof & you have to have fill ins in case of injuries

    velli is a perfect example

    right now we are sitting at about 166-170 million in payroll

    if we trade for halladay & extend him we are around 190 million before pettitte wich takes us to 200 million with lf,dh,cf concerns

    doesnt make sense but i think we need another pitcher even if pettitte is signed

    i just don’t think cash & girrardi are content with cc,burnett & pettitte & going with joba & hughes as our 4th & 5th wich i agree with

    i know some will say we did it with the 3 already but imo that is not good enough

    we have to always try to get better

  33. Jerkface December 2nd, 2009 at 9:32 pm

    Mike Ashmore

    Speaking of Mike Ashmore, he is a Red Sox fan. Which makes Rebecca’s relationship with him dubious in the least, traitorous at the most!

  34. Nick in SF December 2nd, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    What a revolting development!

  35. Raphy December 2nd, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    Why can’t compensation picks be determined by the size of the free agent’s new contract and not some poor statistic?

  36. Joe December 2nd, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    Mike Ashmore is a Red Sox fan?

    Pete Abe 2.0…..

  37. Boston Dave - XXVII December 2nd, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    In many MLB drafts, only 3-7 players in the entire 1st rd become impact players. Also, half of those tend to come from the top 10-12 picks.

    So if I had to guess, I’d say only 2-3 players of the final 18-20 picks become impact players (all-stars or borderline all-stars) in the majors.

    1st rd picks are great… but far from a sure thing. The Red Sox were lucky to get the picks but $3M plus the money they’ll pay the picks, for players who have the odds stacked against them, isn’t some coup.

  38. blake December 2nd, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    I don’t think they are comfortable with the rotation as is either. Having Joba and Hughes as the 4th and 5th starter is a recipe for an overworked bullpen. AJ gets knocked out a lot of games early as well and Pettite is another year older. As is they only have one guy who consistently goes deep into games (CC).. which is why Halladay would be so nice. The pen could rest 2 out of 5 games…

  39. huh? December 2nd, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    why on earth would anyone care that some internet poster dates a minor league beat reporter?

    More like Pete Abe .5 because he is a normally weighted individual.

    His red sox fandom is confirmed from his website, which was interesting to browse as he does a lot of work outside of the trenton thunder.

  42. m December 2nd, 2009 at 9:40 pm

    Ed,

    lol. Doreen confirmed it through a secret girl code already.

    And isn’t that cute about the Facebook? I accused Rebecca about being an idealist when it came to marriage. It remains to be seen if I am correct.

    We need a wager of some sort. Nick?

  43. Rich in NJ December 2nd, 2009 at 9:40 pm

    Confining the utility of 1st round picks to whether or not they are impact players is a bit narrow. For example, if they drafted a pitcher that turned out to be a #3 starter that gave them 3 WAR for 5 years, that player’s production would be well worth the $3 million.

  44. Ham Fighters December 2nd, 2009 at 9:40 pm

    huh, get over yourself many of us have become friends with rebecca and shes the one who’s been dropping hints about it in the first place, also many on here are regular readers of mike ashmore’s column.

    im so sorry we’ve taken you away from discussing the halladay non-trade which is a few weeks away from (not) happening.

    hey, remember the thunder was a red sox affiliate for the first 5 years or so that mike was covering them and he saw many of the current red socks come up through the system.

    he also saw carl pavano set the EL record for wins, but suprisingly that didnt make him a diehard yankees fan…

  51. Phil December 2nd, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    Rich,

    it’s the 3M+bonuseses for the 1 and sandwich pick, right?

  52. Mike Ri December 2nd, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    I agree with Blake and Bru. I too believe that Joe and Cashman aren’t 100 percent confident with Joba and Hughes as our 4th and 5th starter

  53. bru December 2nd, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    blake

    the problem is if we sign pettitte & trade for doc we are at about 195 million with dh & lf concerns

  54. Rich in NJ December 2nd, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    Phil,

    I think that’s right. But a #3 starter could be worth $12m per year to the RS.

  55. Nick in SF December 2nd, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    Wager on the fruits of treachery???

    Hmmm, what kind of wager?

    I’m guessing Rebecca will make Mike (if they still together then) to arrange a meeting with Jesus Montero during spring training or when minor league season starts. that’s one of the advantages of dating a beatwriter. :D

  58. Ham Fighters December 2nd, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    not only do you push the payroll up further by signing halladay, you also lose the chance to keep the payroll down by using the cheap(er) talent (joba or hughes, ajax, montero, whoever) that you sent away and have to pay for established and older talent to fill the holes they would be filling.

    in the past i could have seen the yankees go all-in if only to keep the socks at bay, but now they are chasing us again and we dont have to make such expensive and risky moves.

    jmo…

  59. Boston Dave - XXVII December 2nd, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    “For example, if they drafted a pitcher that turned out to be a #3 starter that gave them 3 WAR for 5 years, that player’s production would be well worth the $3 million.”

    ———-

    there are maybe 1-2 #3 starter quality pitchers taken outside the top 10-12 picks of the 1st rd each year, tops.

    the odds a #14-30 pick, in my unqualified estimated turns out to be an above average player or better than a #5 starter is probably 10%.

  60. Boston Dave - XXVII December 2nd, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    *estimation

  61. Jacob X December 2nd, 2009 at 9:54 pm

    Kim Jones is just following the path of Tiger Woods, unfortunately…

  62. Rich in NJ December 2nd, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    the odds a #14-30 pick, in my unqualified estimation turns out to be an above average player or better than a #5 starter is probably 10%.”

    I have no idea what the percentage is, but I know that the higher the pick, the higher the hit rate.

    By accumulating draft picks, a team’s odds of increasing their hit rate goes up. Adding two additional picks in the top 45 at the price the RS paid is a very good deal for any big revenue team.

    we are sitting at about 170 million with raises

    would it be crazy to try to trade cano,joba for a kf dropping payroll to about 163 million(joba & cano are about 11 million & kf was under 4 million) then sign holliday & pettitte for about 26 million total having payroll at around 189 million or sign damon & matsui for 16 million total & be sitting at about 179 million both leaving us options if we wan’t to sign a 2nd baseman/dh ??

    with that rotation we can play pena at 2nd base & dh miranda if we wen’t with the holliday instead of damon & matsui

    Why would Rebecca be going out with a scumbag Bostonian ;)

    Mike “wishes big Papi could” bAshmore.

    Seriously though, It’s just amazing how Yankees beat writers that are hired are Red Sox fans. Imagine the rumors that a Yankees fan beat writer could have floated year in and year out like Nick Cafardo, Bob Ryan, Tony Massor., Peter Gammons, and the newest addition, Pete Abe.

    Once Trenton moved from Boston’s organization to New York’s, Mike Ashmore should have been fired for being a Red Sox fan. (Whether he is unbiased or not, I do not know and that’s not the issue)

    add 4 million for kf & we are at 163 million with the sickest rotation on the planet & a 24 yr old ace

    sign pettitte,holliday for 24- 26 million & we are at 187-189 million

  76. CR9 December 2nd, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    Nobody could commandeer a fan base’s views about certain players/managers with negative thoughts and concepts quite like Pete Abe.

    I bet every time he was writing one of his hate-filled tirades toward Alex or Joe G., he had another Big Mac stuffed down his throat. And while the Yankees were winning Number 27, he probably held a Mickey D’s hostage, not for money, but for food.

  78. Mike December 2nd, 2009 at 10:14 pm

    CR9,

    The readers can usually tell when a journalist is biased and they no longer read his stuff if he comes across as impartial. So he’ll usually sabotage himself.

    The problem with Pete Abe is that he only became biased after the blog had already been established. He had his fanbase here and knew a few shots at A-Rod wouldn’t drive away his 100s of posters. He went to the Globe and is showing his true colors now. If Pete acted then (05 when he took over the blog) like he does now, this blog would be empty.

    The dude can hit – has good power potential. DId you see him in ST? He has terrific range – which the writer completely ignored, and a killer arm. I’m not terribly concerned about off-balance throws and a bit too much zeal, at this stage.

    And whenever writers venture into the murky “work ethic” waters regarding a young player, buyer beware…ultimate statements about character are highly suspect..

    He needs to not overthrow, work on not K-ing, and let the game come to him a little more…but he has some studly virtues…keep the faith, my friend!

    @leokitty I don’t think Melancon did himself any favors in that clubhouse with his “unintentional” erratic pitches.

    From Mike Ashmore’s twitter.

    Isn’t that dandy? He put unintentional in quotes, as if Mark Melancon meant to hit anybody.

    Mark Melancon, from what I read from GB7 in the past was that he had elite control/command. When he came to the majors, he lost that control/command. For whatever reason, he was a walk machine in the MLB in 2009.

    Eduardo Nunez:

    .322 avg, 9HR, 262B, 19 SB.

    Needs to work on his OBP – what young kid doesn’t? Also, sometimes his bad throws are the result of Sanchez disease – kid doesn’t know when to give up on a play.

    Otherwise, you’d see less wild throws – because his range is so good, sometimes he’s trying to make a throw you can’t possibly make.

    Don’t forget to factor in Wagner’s signature choke job in Game 3 of the ALDS in the final reckoning of this deal.

    Boston was probably going to lose the series anyway, but Wagner did his part to help things along, like he has in every post season in which he’s participated.

  86. bru December 2nd, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    Via Ken Rosenthal -

    Just as the emergence of shortstop Elvis Andrus persuaded the Rangers to move Michael Young to third base, the rapid development of two young shortstops eventually might compel the Yankees to approach Derek Jeter about a change.

    The issue could not be more sensitive — Jeter, who turns 35 on June 26, wants to continue playing short, and he will be a free agent at the end of the 2010 season.
    Scouts, however, have been buzzing all spring about Ramiro Pena, 23, and Eduardo Nunez, 21, both of whom have received increased exposure with Jeter participating in the World Baseball Classic.

    Pena spent last season at Class AA, Nunez at Class A.

    “They’re two of the better young kids I’ve seen … two legitimate core players for the future,” one scout says. “They’re not that far from being major-league ready — they have some tools and they know how to play.”

    Will they hit?

    “Their offense will not keep them from playing — they have at least survivor skills with the bat,” the scout says. “I enjoy watching them. They’re exciting players. They bring a lot of energy.”

    As for Jeter, one problem with moving him off short would be finding him a new position. Center field would appear to be his most logical destination, considering that the Yankees are set long-term at first, second and third.

    Robin Yount moved from short to the outfield at 29, but Jeter’s mentality is probably more similar to that of Cal Ripken, who did not shift to third base until he was 36.

    The Orioles had to sign free agent Mike Bordick to justify the switch to Ripken. Jeter might resist for moving younger players, but his diminished range could weaken his case.

    Both times now, when Jeter has been away at the WBC, Pena has taken advantage of the situation – in terms of making an impression. And, it was three years ago when Eduardo Nunez popped up on the Yankees prospect radar. However, then again, neither Pena or Nunez made it on to the Yankees top prospect list in John Sickels’ The Baseball Prospect Book 2009 – whereas SS prospect Carmen Angelini did make the list (albeit with a grade of “C”).

    Remember, once upon a time, Domingo Ramos and Damaso Garcia were supposed to be the future of the Yankees, up the middle, too…

    Lo and behold, there’s a long interview with Yanks MiL defensive infield coordinator Jody Reed. Haven’t read it yet, but I’m sure Teale will get him to comment on infielders at all levels in the system.

    Joe from LI, that article on Cash makes me wonder about Donnie………Also, Cash is tougher than he looks. I know he spoke to Joe G. about shutting out his coaches (which he apparently did last year), but to think that Torre had some kind of circle around him? That’s disturbing – the team comes first (or it should) and instead it appears that it became all about Torre.

  98. bru December 2nd, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    The Red Sox are also surely pleased with this turn of events. They weren’t poised to make a strong effort to retain Wagner, and now they’re set to land the 19th pick in the draft, assuming that the Braves fail to sign a higher ranked free agent. Matt Holliday, Jose Valverde, Jason Bay, John Lackey and Marco Scutaro are the only ones who will take precedence for the pick, and it’s highly unlikely Atlanta will land any of them. The Red Sox could now go ahead and ink Scutaro, safe in the knowledge that they’d still have at least one first-rounder.

    Reed says a lot of Nunez’ errors came early in the season, when it was stone cold. He also says Nunez “is on the verge of figuring this out.” Rather a sweeping observation, but if it means he may be putting it all together – the God-given and the learned – that would be very, very nice indeed.

    GB7, if you’re in the building – what’s your take on Jose Pirela? Reed says he may have a future at SS, despite his defensive prowess at 2B. Says he’s working on arm strength.

    Betsy – All people change over time. It looks like that was Torre’s downfall, changing and getting away from the style that led to his success in the early years. It’s almost like he stopped trying, and just let things happen. Was too comfortable with “his guys” and wasn’t interested in either trusting new players or learning as the game changed (ex, the use of stat analysis). I don’t think Torre is unique in this, that’s why people sometimes thrive with a change of scenery – they figure out that they HAVE to do something different.

    Well, that’s it for me for tonight – Have a good night all. May we wake up to reading stories about how the Yanks acquired Doc Halladay for Kei Igawa.

    Betsy, The guys who strap it on and the coaching staff always have ( maybe not as much today ) had an us vs. them ( the Suits ) mentality…..That circle of tightness that bonded the coaches and the Manager has been a staple of the game for a long time…..With Torre, Bowa & Mattingly you’re looking at the old school at it’s finest….Zimmer’s departure was planned by Zim himself but he certainly had the last shots at George and the Front Office….With the advent of GM’s being Ivy League types who never stepped on a field in their lives has changes the dynamics in clubhouse and The Front Office relations….GM’s were former players, or lifers who finally became GM’s after spending years making their bones…….What went on behind the scenes with Cashman & Torre was a collision waiting to happen once Cash had full control……Old School / New Wave

  112. Anthony December 2nd, 2009 at 10:59 pm

    Yes, Brian Cashman IS a big picture guy in the sense that the big picture involves signing players for a decade and doling out contracts worth more than Cuba. There’s no micro-management needed, don’t spend the billions of dollars you have on sh*tty, hard to manage players who can’t play defense. That’s the strategy. I’m a yankee fan, but we need to stop pretending that they are a real baseball team in the same sense that the Brewers are a baseball team. Let me know if they get the payroll under $150 million. Then we’ll talk actual strategy.

    Betsy, if you’re a Civil War buff, like Keith Hernandez, Gettysburg is a must-see.

    The Visitors Center is great, you see a 20-minute movie that sets the scene and puts it in perspective, then you visit the cyclotron, which is a 360-degree thingy which puts thins in geographic perspective, and then you go out to the actual battlefield.

    We only had a little bit of time, so I have to go back someday. But being there at the scene really makes the history of it all come alive. If not for the bravery of a few great men, disaster could have followed.

  118. CR9 December 2nd, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    Anthony
    Are you a weasel? We are playing with a $150 million payroll. Essentially, having to overpay free agents and overpay our own guys like Jeter is necessary to playing in NY. I have not tried to quantify this, but we are paying the same players 50 million more than they would get with any other team.

    And who gives a **** anyway what we pay. You cannot buy a World Series, and that I can quantify. 1 out of 9 years comes to an 11% clip. Not exactly buying WS.

    Atlanta bought Lowe last year. Don’t be surprised to see them go after Lackey or Wolf, who are both rated higher than Wagner.

    Pat M, the new ways aren’t always so bad (not that I’m saying you’re saying that). I am no stat geek myself – I don’t know about WAR, UZR, etc….and I’m perfectly happy. I respect and appreciate the knowledge that former baseball players bring to the game. That said, there is no excuse – not for Torre, not for Bowa, not for Mattingly – to ignore their GM and try and run the team their way. Torre and Cash were friends, but what kind of friend treats their friend with the disrespect that Torre apparently did? I think it takes a lot for Cash to call something “garbage”. I love Mattingly -adore him, really – but I would lose a lot of respect for him if he was part of the staff that Cash was referring to.

  136. Phil December 2nd, 2009 at 11:30 pm

    Wally Pipp and a few other major leaguers came from the same college team Cash played for. He was a 2B who got on base a lot.

    Torre was a failure as a manager until he inherited Buck’s talented Yankee team, and the kids that were coming up. They won, and he thought it was because of him. It wasn’t, but he developed his coterie of reporters and celebrity friends and it all went to his head.

    Torre is a first ballot HOF and has took 2 historic franchises (Yanks and Dodgers) and restored them to glory. Dodgers don’t win a playoff game for 20 years… Torre arrives and takes them to 2 consecutive NLCS’s.

    Yanks haven’t done anything for 18 years and Torre shows up and bam… the best era the Yankees have had in decades, 4 titles in 5 years, 14 straight playoff appearances.

    Cashman looks real smart spending his boss’ money in a non-salary cap sport, but it is Torre who brings teams together.

  145. Rich in NJ December 2nd, 2009 at 11:46 pm

    I was as disgusted by the monster that George created (i.e., Torre) as anyone, but his calm demeanor probably did contribute to the atmosphere that helped them overcome the 0-2 deficit to Atlanta in the ’96 WS, but as the years went on his ego became unbearable. In actuality, his situation was analogous to that of Chauncey Gardner in “Being There.”

    Reed says a lot of Nunez’ errors came early in the season, when it was stone cold. He also says Nunez “is on the verge of figuring this out.” Rather a sweeping observation, but if it means he may be putting it all together – the God-given and the learned – that would be very, very nice indeed.

    GB7, if you’re in the building – what’s your take on Jose Pirela? Reed says he may have a future at SS, despite his defensive prowess at 2B. Says he’s working on arm strength.

    ————————————————————

    Pirela even at age 19 is more advanced defensively than any other middle infielder in the system, but, still has some things to work on….like footwork. He also bounced between short and 2nd base. Offensively, he can hit. He’s fast, but, not a good base runner, yet. Zero power, though. I’d think that 2nd base is his spot. At 5’19″ and 191 pounds, be may be getting a little too stocky for short stop. I like him, though.

    Eduardo Nunez is the real thing on offense. He has speed and the power should be sort of Jeter type power. That will come when he puts on some weight. His defensive issues has always been footwork.

    By the way….you’ll love Daniel Brewer. Not much power, but a good, young hitter with speed. Plays mainly corner outfielder and well, but, plays all three and first base.

    Hey Anthony,

    Stop complaining about Yankee payroll. Let me ask you a question: How much does your house cost, or how much is your rent? How much do you think the same size residence cost in Kansas City? Duh, yes, NY is more expensive.

    You can do the same with salaries. We get paid more here, because things cost more here. Now I know that they get paid obscenely more, but you get the drift.

    Joseph

    Are you serious?

    Stick and Buck assembled the talent and changed the losing culture that led to the four WS, yet you want to give Torre the credit? Please.

    btw, The Yankees made the playoffs the year before Torre showed up, but you want to give Torre the credit for the Dodgers for making the playoffs, and none to Buck for the Yankees finally making the playoffs. That’s ridiculous.

    You are also conveniently overlooking the fact that the Yankees had the best record in the AL in 1994 at the time of the lockout.

    And if there had been a wild card in 1993, the Yankees would have made the playoffs.

    No one deserves less credit than Torre for the Yankees’ turnaround.

    Betsy, if you want to see Gettysburg, I’d suggest starting at Antietam. It will give you a chance to work up to Gettysburg. It’s outside of Sharpsburg, Maryland. From there, go to Manassas, Virginia and them to Gettysburg. Starting at Gettysburg is a bit of a shock to the system. Antietam, though is absolutely marvelous. Beautiful marvelous and tragic.

    Claude is a mercurial little fellow. He can be rather soft-hearted, and, in turn, he can refuse to heat up your croissant. He’s actually semi-retired. I’ve always liked him. It’s all the more worth the trip if he scowls at you.

    He must have stopped making Napoleons. That was my great regret about the place – no napoleons. But the pear tart is ridiculous – and what about the little individual quiches? They are clouds in the mouth.

    Pat,

    I understand that there is a cultural revolution of sourts going on. But don’t forget that Stick was the guy who brough the Yanks back to their OBP based history, and Buck was into OBP, too. Watson was a functionary, but a very good player back in the day.

    Why not tell her? She might come up with a cinnamon chocolate truffle upon suggestion.

    I was a reasonable fan of Jacques Torrez before I had Kee’s. Now, there’s no turning back. If you’ve been to ABC in Union Square, there’s this Michel Cluizet or however it’s spelled. Found it just too rich.

    Remember Ken Rosenthal, what he said to Jeter at the end of the ALCS “You have not won a world series since 2000 and you have not been to one since 2003″.

    I think that a lot of the media types like Abe and Rosy and Buck and so on, the intentionally try and plant seeds of doubt in individual Yankees..

    Go ahead and say these guys are professionals, they are not going to doubt themselves….

    But these guys are humans, they are not robots. They all have feelings, memories, have good and bad days, even doubt themselves sometimes (though I cannot imagine Derek ever doubting himself).

  170. Pat M. December 3rd, 2009 at 12:36 am

    Phil, Stick was a outstanding baseball guy fating back to the early 70′s….He used to come by the back field in Lauderdale and work with the infielders…Footwork, working runners back to the bag, learning the hitters….He was great with the hidden ball trick as well…..Knew the game, gave me crap because I didn’t take the free ride to Kent State…..I was there a week before the shootings on May 4th…..Stratch golfer as the standing joke was who was getting hustled after practice…He was tight with Ford & Mantle

  171. Phil December 3rd, 2009 at 12:48 am

    Stick was always a popular guy among the Yanks who came before him and while he was there. I know Bobby loved him. He was a bad hitter, but a tall shortstop, who was sharp. He understood that from the time of Huggins on, the Yanks were big OBP proponents and he decided to get the team back to that.

  172. Rich in NJ December 3rd, 2009 at 12:48 am

    Stick was tight with Thurman as well.

    Roberto Alomar gave some high praise to Robbie Cano:

    Alomar still keeps an eye on the current Bombers, including a certain second baseman who reminds Alomar of himself – the flashy, gifted (and often nonchalant) Robinson Cano.

    “When you have too much talent, you can end up playing that way,” Alomar said of Cano. “But I do think Robinson is going to be an MVP and Gold Glover. That’s how good he is. The rest is up to him.”

  175. Pat M. December 3rd, 2009 at 1:11 am

    The Stick & Slick were always putting a hurt to guys on the links……He was the guy who replaced Wills in LA….Very soft spoken Gentlemen & very much into the instructional / coaching part of the game……His was suppose to move into the front office a few years before he actually did….Houk talked into playing in Detroit in 75 from what I remember, and they were a really bad team……Phill you’re right about the OBP, especially in the mold of Richardson & Kubek, table setters

  176. Phil December 3rd, 2009 at 1:19 am

    Pat,

    Casey used to implore Richardson to walk more, but he says they only threw him strikes. In any event, his batting in front of Mickey is one of the reasons why Mickey didn’t have more 100 RBI seasons. His OBP was .299 for his career, and batting him leadoff for the Yanks should have been disastrous for the Yanks, but it wasn’t because of what was behind him. But Huggins himself walked a lot, and so did his players and McGraw’s players and a bunch of Casey’s players. Billy Martin used to want Rivers to bunt and walk more, and of course Willie Randolph was a great OBP guy – and paradoxically that’s why he’s underrated.

    ————————————————————

    Looking forward to seeing DeLeon, but some of the kids out od staten island look good, too. Neill Medchill, Zpoilo Almonte, Deangelo Mack and Kyle Higashoka on offense should give Charleston what they were missing this year….bats and power. They should have a couple of great arms coming in, too, with Ben Watkins, Ronny Marte and especially, Adam Warren and Arodys Vizcaino. Trent Lare was outstanding at Staten Island, but, he was also 24 years old. Not sure what to think, there. Another great year in Dixie.

  178. Pat M. December 3rd, 2009 at 1:31 am

    Phil, That was always confusing about Bobby, he never whiffed, but yet never scored 100 runs…….I was recruited by him in 1970 and even worked out with him…He had the quickest hands I had ever seen when turning the duece……South Carolina wasn’t for me……

  179. Phil December 3rd, 2009 at 1:33 am

    The Riverdogs should be a lot of fun this year – at least till promotions move some of them up to radio dead Tampa. I was glad that Zolio Almonte started to shine a bit this year. They had been high on him for some time with no tangible results. I think Lassiter might be back in Charleston, and Angelini could even be there for round three. Mack really came on after they shifted some things, and will remind you a bit of Jimmy Wynn when you see him, so keep your fingers crossed that the power follows him to the Sally league and beyond. Medchill should be interesting to follow. He’s looking more and more like a steal. The pitching staff could be somewhat insane. Should be great.

  180. Phil December 3rd, 2009 at 1:36 am

    Pat,

    That’s the thing about Richardson, he was a picture perfect fielder at second(though I learned from watching Randolph after I hurt my arm) and never struck out, so he appeared to be much more productive than he was. So he was sort of overrated as a hitter and Randolph was underrated.

    One thing the Yanks could always do when they were good was turn the DP. From McGraw through Casey, whoever they put in there, and they would mix and match sometimes, could turn DP’s as well as any seasoned pair in baseball. It was sort of freakish.

  181. Pat M. December 3rd, 2009 at 1:43 am

    Phil, I was a SS that was being converted to 2nd due to my side arm throwing style when I needed to unload from the hole….Good thing I gave it up in early 74, because 2 years later # 30 came onboard for Doc and that was that for a long time at 2nd….Willie was a star ballplayer on a team that had a galaxy of big stars….He played in All-Star games however you’re right he never really got his due…..

  182. Phil December 3rd, 2009 at 1:48 am

    Willie’s one of the 20 greatest 2b’s of all time. And I still can’t stand McCrae for running into him. Of course that created Brian Doyle’s big chance to shine. After the `78 series, I’m not sure I can remember anyone hitting more shots right to the lip of the warning track when Brian got to play.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

This group is based out of the Maryville and Knoxville TN area, some members from as far away as Florida. We have hikes and adventures planned for almost every Saturday and Sunday every month and anyone interested in joining us is more than welcome to join. We are an open venue with suggestions for hikes from light to strenuous hikes from all members of the group. As the weather gets warmer, we do organize some evening moonlight walks or hikes as an alternative to the day hikes. We have two or three ‘Hike and Camp’ weekend events every year in one of the Park campgrounds. And if you enjoy back country camping, we do that also, but the spaces on those usually fill up fast due to back country permit availability. Hiking, rock climbing, skiing, biking, river rafting and a cookout thrown in every now and then! This is a great way to exercise, appreciate nature and meet some new people. We are lot of fun, so join up!!!?Sunset YOGA ON THE BEACH

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Besides the practical benefits of lower heels, they may also be the best option for your health. An article in the Washington Post illustrates the many negative effects of high heels, including an increased occurrence of ankle injury, misalignment of the spine and the knees, and tightening of the achilles tendon. But filmsy flats aren’t much better. Fitsugar cited the hazards of ballerina slippers: “Most flats are very flat and provide little or no cushion for the bottom of your foot, which can be almost as rough as going barefoot.” Not to mention the lack of arch support. Low heeled shoes reduce the amount of stress on your body, while also providing cushion and support for the foot.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate.

    I need to say, as a great deal as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but shed interest after a whilst. Its as in the event you had a great grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to contain your readers. Possibly you must think about this from far much more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better in the event you think about what other people might have to say rather of just going for a gut reaction towards the topic. Think about adjusting your personal believed approach and giving other people who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
