    Fair matchups all weekend

    AJ Burnett has some serious tattoo-age going on. I never quite realized it before

  3. Erin April 23rd, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    Great picture of AJ. Normally I don’t like that many tattoos, but on him I don’t mind :)

    Does Nick in SF have a Mitre-style ERA watch for Javy???

    If not, I think he needs one

    Interesting pic of AJ, lol; the only part of him; that’s not tattooed is his right leg. He’s pitched very well this year; hopefully he can continue that tonight. It would be nice to see the bats pick it up after the last couple of games.

    “And I have to imagine there had to be at least 1 team in the last 30 years that had poor defensive catchers on their roster that could not throw people out.”

    well , there was the thunder bay whiskey cats back in ‘94.

    i know they were bad because they asked me to catch for them.

    i shouldn’t poke fun at myself so much though.
    i once thew out 13 runners in a double header in semi pro ball once.
    the other manager couldn’t believe my funky throw could throw out college kids who could run so he kept sending them.

    it’s all how quick you release the ball.
    some of the best throwing arms with catchers are negated because while they throw a rising pure back spin bb down to second base they take too long to load up and release the ball.

    thurman munson had a semi sidearm throw that he released really quickly and it was effective.
    i’ll bet the release times of martinez and varitek are really slow and when they try to speed it up they lose velocity.

    varitek has been catching forever and it knows how to throw a rising 4 seam throw to second with pure backspin to make it go straight, but he can’t get time to do it for whatever reason.
    in the last game i saw he was throwing balls with so much sidespin and sink they weren’t even reaching the bag.

    a really good throwing catcher automatically grips the ball like a four seam fastball. in the minors they have catchers flip the ball in the air and grab it by the four seams. you hand can feel it and reposition in a millisecond if you’ve done it enough.

    neither red sox catcher is doing it. why, i have no idea

    AJ looks great with tattoos – he’s such a bad a s s, lol.

    At some point, AJ Burnett will provide an annuity to several laser surgeons.

    But just how damaging are all of these steals? Consider that 19 of the 36 stolen bases have resulted in the runner eventually scoring. Another way of looking at it, 18 of the 85 runners to score this season against the Red Sox have stolen a base on their journey to home plate. No other AL team has even allowed 18 steals.

    I think it’s too late for him; he’s got way too much to take off even if he wanted to. AJ will be one bad a s s 80 year old with all those tats.

  13. Bronx Jeers April 23rd, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    I just noticed that AJ expanded his tattoo into a full sleeve.

    Compare his left arm above to this picture taken during the ALDS.

    Burnett = Captain Badass

  16. Pat M. April 23rd, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    Randy, when I was assigned to the Florida State League, Cox had a bucket of balls with dots on them…..Every player took a ball home with them to learn to grip the ball with your fingers aligned on the dots to achieve max. and proper spin when throwing ( 4 seams )..After about a week of doing this, anytime a grounder came my way I could spin the ball in my mitt to feel the seams in an instant….Same with the catchers and outfielders…To this day whenver I catch a baseball I instinctively do this….39 years later

  17. CR9 April 23rd, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    Interesting information. Thanks. Can’t constant practice help them?

  18. m April 23rd, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    Rebecca,

    Hello, stranger!

    I gotta agree. AJ didn’t make the hottie list, but he looks a badass there.

    CB,

    LOL. We have tee-ball & little league. Do those count?

    And poor Robi Cano. His claim to shame is he’s the only player Boston’s thrown out. :mad:

  19. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    That article from ESPN that Betsy posted a link for is truly amazing.

    “The Red Sox have allowed 36 stolen bases through their first 16 games. Elias says it’s been 92 years since that has happened. The 1918 Tigers allowed 37 steals through 16 games.”

    So what we are seeing is literally baseball as it was played is what was the very end of the dead ball era.

    Boston based much of their strategy this year on run prevention. What are stolen bases doing to the Sox?

    Baseball Info Solutions – which is partly owned by Bill James I believe – has an estimate for how many context independent runs a stolen base is worth:

    “Last season, the Red Sox set an AL record for futility by allowing an 86.8 percent success rate. Only 23 of 174 were caught, and no team allowed more steals. So as you might expect, the stolen bases runs saved statistic was not kind to Boston. Because of their problems stopping runners, the Red Sox allowed an estimated 23 more runs (10 attributed to the catchers and 13 to the pitchers) than an average team would have. That ranked dead last in the majors.

    Which brings us back to this season. Through 15 games, the Red Sox were already at -10 stolen bases runs saved. This is not an average, but rather a number that accumulates over the course of a season. That means the Red Sox are on pace to lose over 100 runs because of stolen bases. While the current rate is almost assuredly unsustainably bad, it underscores the crisis. All of the supposed defensive upgrades made in the offseason could be irrelevant because of stolen bases.”

    So last year the sox were -2.3 WAR due to stolen bases. This year they have already lost -1 WAR to stolen bases.

    To put that in perspective – Victor Martinez last year just by his bat and position was a 4.3 WAR player.

    It’s impossible to believe that teams can keep stealing at this rate, but if they did Martinez value as a hitter would be entirely erased by the stolen bases he’s allowed. He had a very good offensive year last year – one of the better ones of his career – and even if he continued to produce at that level he would be a net negative player for the sox offense + defense.

    And that doesn’t even include other aspects of catcher’s defense like blocking balls in the dirt which martinez isn’t good at.

He’s got 10 inch tall hair with lots of goop in it, cool shades (which hide his beautiful blue gray eyes) and tatoos that cover nearly his entire body. He’s a softie, though he looks like someone you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark alley – that kind of dichotomy is HOT, lol

    m-

    I saw that. That’s helpful but I’d still like them to describe their methodology better so we can understand how those estimates are generated. But I think that’s proprietary information – at least it is in detail.

    It’s hard to figure out how much of a stolen base is attributed to a pitcher vs. catcher.

    That said, it is a useful overall estimate at the team level. I’d also guess that the estimate for how much a stolen base is worth in terms of runs is more certain than it is with defensive plays on the whole because there is less subjectivity to the play (runner is safe or not).

    At this rate the Sox are on pace to be -10 WAR just due to stolen bases. That is truly mind boggling.

    That would in itself wipe out any defensive gain the sox could possibly hope to have generated by upgrading the defense in other places.

    Last year the Mariners were the best defensive team in baseball and it wasn’t close statistically. They were on their own island at around +8.5 WAR due to their defense (next best teams were around 5.5 WAR). And the M’s are a much better defensive team than the sox.

    Anything close to -10 WAR from stolen bases is going to swamp the Sox season. There’s just no way this can go on.

  31. m April 23rd, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    CB,

    I knew that would get your juices flowing.

    Do you think that teams are going to steal at an unusually higher rate until the Sox prove they can stop the runners?

    Also, do you think the pitchers will have to be unusually more proactive as far as pickoffs, pitchouts etc?

    This ARod stuff is not going to die. People who don’t like ARod and/or the Yankees and their fans and reveling in this. It’s a topic on XM radio and they do a facebook thing and there are a ton of comments, most by non-Yankee fans and, of course, Alex is a rotten person, who isn’t liked by his own teammates and who shouldn’t be allowed to play according to them.

    Sheesh.

    m –

    Why not?

  42. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    “Do you think that teams are going to steal at an unusually higher rate until the Sox prove they can stop the runners?”

    Yes. Teams will continue to run and run until the Sox can stop them.

    “Also, do you think the pitchers will have to be unusually more proactive as far as pickoffs, pitchouts etc?”

    That’s a real good question. The Sox organizational philosophy is to not have the pitchers focus on the runners but focus on the hitters.

    I don’t know how much of that you can change midseason.

    Last night Buchholz looked great until men got on base. And then he got very distracted.

    Their pitchers are really bad at holding runners. Wake’s going to the pen but Dice-K is bad as well.

    The key for them is to at least get their caught stealing rate up to around 10-12% so that teams have to at least think a little before running.

    They are not going to be good in this area – even if they trade for a catcher that staff doesn’t hold runners – but they just have to reach a point where teams won’t send Vlad Guerrero and are only willing to try to steal around once a game rather than twice.

    Those are really some of the most remarkable early season stats I’ve every seen.

    Kim may have been too busy gawking at hot, sweaty guys, lol. I probably shouldn’t even be talking about this stuff – I don’t want to be typecast as the typical female sports fan who only likes sports because of cute guys. That is SO not me, lol.

    Pat M, that will be interesting – I almost wish he wasn’t pitching in that park, but then Phil isn’t the same pitcher he was 2 years ago. Of course, he may have a bad game or just an ok game or somewhere in between, but I would like to think he’s not going to let the memories of that night haunt him.

  48. m April 23rd, 2010 at 3:50 pm

    That game Hughes pitched last year? There were a couple of defensive miscues. I want to say Robi? But Swish airmailed a throw from RF all the way to the LF wall near the infield.

    Anyway, that was Hughes fault for not bearing down, but I still remember that throw. It was quite a rainbow. :P

  49. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 3:50 pm

    Oops, I mean he’s not the same as even last year…..

  50. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    Doreen, I think he has a wonderful smile – sort of crooked and goofy, very endearing. He’s an odd combination of macho man and juvenile delinquent.

  51. Judge Smails April 23rd, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    Swisher also dominated at Camden last year. That’s where his offensive prowess first showed when he was still the backup OF.

  52. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    Phil also pitched well against the O’s at YS as he struck out 9 in 5 plus innings….Overall, it was really just a bad performance that tainted his total numbers; too bad, too, because without that game (I know you can’t do that, but just to show that he was fine as a starter last year) his numbers were quite good.

    Here’s an excerpt from that article m linked to. Intersting stuff:

    ESPN is a national service, and that’s why it will always choose to broadcast teams that have established a national following. Take, for example, “Sunday Night Baseball.” More than twice as many fans tune in to watch a Yankees-Red Sox game than watch a game without either team — that’s 4.6 million people versus 2.1 million. What programmer wouldn’t want to attract 2.5 million extra sets of eyeballs by simply selecting an attractive matchup?

    Some fans think those numbers reflect a Northeastern regional bias. Not true. In the Southeast, Boston-New York baseball games are six times more popular than games without either team, and in the Central region the audience is four times larger. Even if the Yankees or Red Sox aren’t playing each other, the ratings for a game with either team average 2.9 million – still more than the 2 million for a game involving neither team.

    i thought about you when i wrote about gripping the ball on the seams. figured that a shortstop had to do it too.

    sometimes when i get down on the sabermetrically inclined it’s because i know that they often don’t know this kind of stuff. they seem to think that the ball just magically appears at first from shortstop or at second from catcher.

    i mean at what point does a team like the red sox that is so sabermetrically driven not lose sight of the behind the scenes fundamental like this that isn’t common knowledge.

    theo hires managers and coaches who are supposed to know this stuff, but if he doesn’t know a particular skill that needs to be developed how does he know which coach to hire to teach what he doesn’t know exists?

    i really do think part of the problem is that the red sox have a disconnect with the real game of baseball as they push the sabermetric agenda. the run prevention strategy was all the sabermetric rage last year and this past winter.

    the problem is that a stathead driven management can’t know a good coach when they see one, or know what to tell those coaches to teach.

    all theo is thinking is tell them to get the damn ball to second base, but he has no idea how it’s done.

  70. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    m-

    It looked to me watching Clay last night. His stuff was extremely impressive. Best slider I’ve ever seen him throw. But when guys got on base he just bogged down his pace and got distracted. At baseline it’s an issue for him but it’s got to be worse now.

    Then there was this from ESPN – it’s hard to infer causation from findings like this but it’s suggestive:

    “Even if the Red Sox had been ignoring runners in order to concentrate on the batter, it certainly wasn’t working. If anything, the stolen base problem seems to have rattled Red Sox pitchers with a man on first.

    Last season, with second base open and a runner on first, opponents hit .304 against the Red Sox; the major league average was .278. In all other situations with men on base (which would be considered non-stealing situations), opponents hit just .235 against Boston pitching.”

    CB,

    I missed that part of the article. Interesting. Instead of focusing on defense, they should focus on strikeouts. :P

    Remember some guy at espn said that we weren’t focusing on defense because we went out and got strikeout pitchers? What does one have to do with the other?!

  77. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    Betsy,

    They sent Buccholz down to AAA to work on that stuff.

    I don’t think he has issues, at least none very serious. He’s by far their best pitcher right now (I know, tallest midget argument).

    But if you’re a Boston fan, he’s the future. At least until June.

  81. Pel April 23rd, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    >Hey Pel….Believe it or not, getting drilled with a 89 mph pitch hurts buddy, especially if it’s in the ribs…..

    Oh, I know. I’d never say anything to the contrary. I’s just joshin’ around. :razz:

  82. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 4:18 pm

    M, Buchholz is the Sox’ best pitcher? He’s pitching the best, I suppose, but he’s not their best pitcher……..semantics? Maybe. I wasn’t even suggesting that they send him down – that didn’t even enter my mind. What’s he going to learn beating up on AAA hitters?

  83. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    I only mentioned it because he’s not a baby anymore – perhaps he’s just a guy that takes a long time to come into his own. Either way, he and Phil will be compared to each other for a long time.

    “sometimes when i get down on the sabermetrically inclined it’s because i know that they often don’t know this kind of stuff. they seem to think that the ball just magically appears at first from shortstop or at second from catcher.”

    randy-

    Probably one of the more interesting things I’ve read recently was in the comments section for an article done at the Hardball Times. The article did an analysis of whether or not pitcher’s lose velocity from the stretch.

    Anyway, the article itself was secondary. What was interesting was the comment posted by mgl i.e. mitchell lichtman – who is inventor of UZR and one of the coauthors of The Book with Tom Tango.

    Now I have not idea if this is the real mgl – but it seemed to be so and no one on the board took any exception to his identity – but here’s what he said. It was really interesting:

    “Not to mention the fact that if you watch a game or two (I realize that analysts typically don’t watch games), you would see in about 10 minutes that there is no discernible difference between when a pitcher throws from the stretch and when he throws from the windup.

    Seriously, sometimes I think that people who write about and comment on baseball DON’T ever watch games, or at least they don’t think or pay much attention when they do.”

    I couldn’t get over that. One of the preeminent sabermatricians was leveling at some member of the community the exact criticism that “tradtionalists” have been leveling at them for years (often completely unfairly). It’s one of the criticisms people in sabermetrics hate the most – it often makes people livid (and it is often completely ungrounded).

  90. CountryClub April 23rd, 2010 at 4:23 pm

    Buchholz is averaging 5 1/3 innings and 105 pitches per start. He’ll need to improve that if the rest of his numbers are going to matter.

  91. BD (Boston Dave) - NJ walk tracker = 18 April 23rd, 2010 at 4:23 pm

    ““Also, do you think the pitchers will have to be unusually more proactive as far as pickoffs, pitchouts etc?””

    ————–

    Sox pitchers are absolutely throwing over quite a bit and I’ve seen more pitchouts on average than I can remember.

    That means Sox pitchers are giving away ball 1, and in some cases ball 2. For a pitching staff already struggling more than expected, they have an even bigger uphill battle if they are falling behind in the count due to pitchouts.

  92. rconn23 April 23rd, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    Buccholz was good last night, but an undisciplined hitting team like the Rangers was right up his alley.

    Depsite their improved pitching and, well, supposed defense, it’s hard to see Texas having enough to compete wth Anaheim in that division. Far too aggressive at the plate.

    Buccholz was more lucky than good in his first two starts. Baltimore will likely offer little resistance this weekend. Hopefully the burgeoning Matuz can spin a gem.

    Guthrie is pitching tonight, and he is horrid in Fenway.

  96. Pat M. April 23rd, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    Randy, your point is very clear and accurate…..In my mind, the Minnesota Twins are the most perfect Organization in the game…..Angels & Rays are very close in how they’re developmental approach to the game…Of course they lack the bread to get to the next level…….But think of all the quality talent they lose and just replace a part and keep going…….The drills that you & I were drummed into our second nature is somewhat lost in today’s game…Witness the lack of bunting skills, cutoffs & relays, covering home plate ( Cervelli yesterday ) & second on throws from the catcher….Even Jeter stays on the plate side of second and does the swipe tag……One thing I have noticed about the Twins which is surprising is how poorly they run the bases…..Gardihier spent an additional 2 days on base running this spring and they still have issues…It cost them the ALDS vs The Yanks……At some point, GM’s will revert back to the fundamentals and find a balance with sabermetrics

    Betsy,

    Of course that’s what I meant, that he’s their best pitcher because he’s pitching the best. He throws 95, he’s got good off-speed stuff, if he can locate that fastball, then he’ll be good.

    And the sending him down comment was aimed at you. But an acknowledgement on the Sox’s part.

    Joba, Hughes, Laps. Other young pitchers all struggle at times.

    I’m not trying to build up Laps. Heaven forbid. But it seems like he’s putting it together much like Hughes has.

  120. rconn23 April 23rd, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    The difference I see between Hughes and Buccholz is the fastball.

    Hughes fastball really has a late life and explosion whereas Buchholz’s offering is often straight as an arrow ( a tag Hughes has gotten in the past).

    There’s no question Buchholz has the better changeup, which for him can be a devastating pitch, but I think Hughes curve is on par with Clay’s hook.

    It’s exciting to see Hughes have success early on this season with his cutter, which can be a great out pitch for him.

    Also, I don’t think it’s mentioned enough that Hughes is two years younger than Buchholz.

    Rconn, I never understood why Phil got that rap. I distinctly remember his debut against the Jays and even though it was unmemorable (it wasn’t bad, either), I remember he got swings and misses and the Jays were impressed. Phil takes most of his grief from his post-injury starts.

    Phil’s cutter can only get better, especially if he’s under Mo’s tutelage. He seems to be in awe of CC, so hopefully the big guy can help him with his change. I can’t speak for Clay’s curve, but Phil has a really good one when it’s on. It’s exciting that he’s now got 4 pitches (well, I’m sure we’ll see the change soon)…..Phil has seemingly been around forever; maybe that’s why it seems like people forget how young he is.

    m, I don’t know if you are still on here but I would still say that Lester is a better pitcher than Bucholtz.

    Lester is much like Tex ( I know apples and oranges because they play different positions) in that he often starts out slow in April. I think after all is said and done this season you will see Lester having a considerably better season than Bucholtz.

    “Which brings us back to this season. Through 15 games, the Red Sox were already at -10 stolen bases runs saved.”

    :shock:

    I knew this situation was bad, but I did not realize it was that bad.

    If the Sox do not do something to fix this or improve the situation soon it is going to cost them their season.

    And another thing to keep in mind is that it is still fairly cold out and a lot of players do not have their legs at full strength yet. When the heat of summer rolls around even more guys will be willing to run.

  140. m April 23rd, 2010 at 4:50 pm

    Suzyn told the story that 2 years ago in April, opposing players were telling her, “What’s the big deal with this kid (Hughes)? His fastball is straight as an arrow.” Of course, she says that they would never say that now.

    But my point is that Phil had two leg injuries, and coming back from them it took time to build up that base again. Even Kay said yesterday, “If Hughes can stay healthy, he’s going to be a very good pitcher.” (welcome aboard, Kay)

    I expect him to pitch better soon.

    M, that was the Orioles – ugh, I was so mad. Of course they had no reason to know about his injures, etc.., but still. Kay’s a little late to jump on the bandwagon, lol, but I suppose better late than never. I didn’t get the souts who jumped off as they should have known better than to judge Phil post-injuries (shouldn’t they have more foresight with a prospect). I mean, granted they had no idea if he’d come back from them, but there wasn’t any reason to assume he wouldn’t; it’s not like they were arm injuries.

  149. LGY April 23rd, 2010 at 5:02 pm

    The Red Sox pitched out with a man on 3rd last night. Mind you, this was a key situation in the game and all the Rangers hitter had to do was put the ball in play to get a run across. Bucholz needed a strike out there but the Sox decided to give up a ball.

    When you are willing to go down 1-0 in the count in that situation, I would have to say baserunning is already affecting their pitchers and decision making.

    It is also hard to buy the party-line that “we are not really concerned with baserunners” when Bucholz is throwing over to first multiple times whenever a guy is on 1st and they are pitching out with a man on 3rd.

    Hello Randy! Great explanation of Theo’s RSox issue! Unfortunately, it isn’t limited to just baseball. LOL! In life so many people don’t know their history or even a way to check facts that they become indoctrinated in a skewed view of reality. (It must be so because it agrees with what they think is true.) Basically the I don’t know because I don’t know that I don’t know that you stated.

    Managers have had this issue for years, but now it is more prevalent in supposedly more technically inclined folks. The “Me Now” generation. Where I work they have to come up with ways to promote the new kids because they become disenchanted if they don’t. After getting trophies & rewards for basically showing up, now they expect the same thing in the business world.

    So when they get out in the world, they make up games to be successful. Obviously if you win a couple of Fantasy Baseball or Football leagues you are now deemed proficient to judge all of baseball. It would be comical if not for being so sad.

    Again, I have nothing against stats! Stats alone tell little of the picture. Same with Theo!

    randy,

    I would hope the front office when putting together a coaching staff takes the player’s opinions into serious consideration. There is no one who can tell you better how good a coach is than the player’s he is coaching. If the Theo braintrust is sitting in their office creating formulas or making the decision by themselves when choosing their coaches I would say they have crossed the line where their role in the game has gone too far.

    There was huge backlash in Baltimore when they recently decided not to give Cal a job. Just because he is a big name does not mean he would be a good coach. The ability to teach and the ability to play are two very distinct and different skills.

    As a plus for Cashman he seems to have put together a very good coaching staff. Montero when he hits the big leagues is going to have a true wealth of knowledge surrounding him.

    Blake, Brandon Tierney on 1050 ESPN radio compared him to Doc in the same way you were. Obviously not like THAT, but in terms of approach and style; he called Phil a cerebral pitcher – a thinking man’s pitcher. One of the best descriptions of Phil I’ve heard was Orel Herschiser (on 1050 last week). He said that Phil was like a very strong deer who could run fast…..but who could also stop on a dime if he had to.

  182. Rick April 23rd, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Some pitchers aren’t especially happy about frequently using the slide step with the thinking that it messes with normal flow of mechanics.
    In Boston’s case, it’s a necessary part of a pitcher’s game with the weak throwing catchers. The cracks in Theo Epstein’s self promotion are now rearing their ugly heads.
    Even worse, the slow and deliberate windup of Dice-K Matsuzaka will be seen soon which only adds to the base stealing woes of Boston.

I’m bunting so I can see the ball…After drilling some into the upper nets they’re coach had his kids dropping bunts…….Besides RayVT, I’m certain some us seasoned guys would hold our own vs. some of the younger LoHuders here……..Stat sheets are of little use when hitting a baseball

    Yea I wasn’t trying to compare Phil to Halladay in terms of how good they are right now but Phil does remind me of him in his pitches and how he goes about getting guys out. That doesn’t mean he’s as good as Halladay or that he ever will be they are both really fun to watch and it gives you hope that he may get to that level one day.

  195. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    I’m sure it’s been beaten to death and flamebroiled already, but this is my first chance to chime in the day after.

    I texted an A’s fan buddy of mine to get his take:

    “I’ve never heard of that “unwritten rule” but arod is a clown and that was sweet. I’m sure Braden will have a nice reception in the Bronx.”

    My buddy is a Yankee hater.

    Until now, Dallas Braden was just the guy who replaced Joe Blanton as the young vet of the A’s pitching staff while the team waited for the future stars to get good enough to trade away for more future stars. Now he’s going to be something of a folk hero to a certain segment of the A’s fanbase — not as much to the segment that heard his subsequent interviews, I’m guessing. But local sports talk radio — as much as I’ve heard today — is all NFL draft, San Jose Sharks, and SF Giants. No soup for you, Braden.

    I also got a call from someone I’ve known for 8 years and who hasn’t discussed sports with me… ever, including the years he’s gone to the Super Bowl. He knew I’d been at the game and just wanted to hear about the triple play. Then he asked about the mound thing and said “wasn’t that just the quickest way from point A to point B?”

    I’m sure it’ll be rehashed when the two teams meet up again. Until then, Dallas Braden would be well served to just keep pitching well. Winning is a much better tonic than squabbling with Arod.

    When I played in HS & college, we had the top half of the bat cut off to use doing bunting drills. We played situations to know where to be & throw for almost any kind of play. (If we did it wrong, we ran laps.) As a catcher we had blocking drills where the coach would hit fungos at us from about 15 feet away for us to catch or block. We were taught how to grip the ball too & we were timed running the bases & taught how to step on the bases too.

    Lots of little things! Make a big difference!

    Nick,

    Interesting POV.

    My guess is that Alex knew exactly what he was doing. He got what he wanted, which was to get into the kid’s head. If Roy Halladay’s on the mound, Alex doesn’t take the “shortest path between two points” (what’s with all the math on this blog?!).

    I know Yankee fans own Alex as one of their own, and will look at him favorably.

    But that doesn’t mean the rest of baseball does, or even has to. I could see why a pitcher, in particular, wouldn’t feel much respect for Alex. And it has nothing to do with the size of Alex’s paycheck.

    “Now, if I had to pick a team whose job was to pick a team to hit baseballs, you better believe I’d pick some folks who understood advanced stats.”

    That is a critical aspect to run any contemporary business.

    That said, how you go about it makes a big difference. Operationally I personally would make sure I got people who were top notch psychometricians and statisticians and then teach them about baseball rather than doing what’s often done – finding some one who’s figured out some statistics on their own or as part of a secondary career that they’ve moved into due to an interest in baseball.

    Statistics PhD aren’t real expensive to hire. And “advanced statistics” in baseball would be among the simpler kind of work they likely will have done.

    WALMART is not hiring people with an interest in retail who have learned how to use excel or an SQL Database to optimize their supply chain management practices.

    Every year we go to Point Pleasant NJ to walk the boardwalk, get a bit to eat, enjoy the ocean air, maybe play mini-golf, but if it’s not too crowded, also to take some swings in the batting cages. I look forward to it, because it’s the only opportunity I ever get to hit a baseball. But they have metal bats and I hate the “clinking” sound that comes from them, and I hate the way they feel in your hands. Even though it’s been years since I hit with a wooden bat (neighborhood baseball or just hitting with my brother), I remember the sound and the feel of them. Soooooo much better.

    “I don’t get the Theo bashing. I’m no fan of the Sox but Theo got two WS championships for an organization that hadn’t won one since 1918. He must know something…”

    2004 was not really his team. Most of those guys outside of Ortiz were not brought in under his reign.

    Even in 2007, their WS MVP and their best pitcher were traded for when Theo was away from the team.

    Cal & Billy Ripken discussed ARod’s “faux pas.”

    Billy said he think ARod is the only baseball player who would ever walk across a mound.

    Cal, the more reasonable brother of the two, said he figures in all the years baseball’s been played, there’ve been more than a couple who’ve probably done it. He also said, in those situations, you’re not necessarily thinking about what you’re doing. You’re thinking about the last at-bat; you’re thinking about, shoot, I gotta back to 1st again; or any number of things and you don’t necessarily notice what you’re doing. He didn’t blame ARod at all.

    Now, who really knows what was in ARod’s head? Only ARod.

    But I’ll tell ya, if it wasn’t ARod, there’d be no story here, except for the way this pitcher threw a tantrum.

  211. RayVT April 23rd, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    LOL! I understand!! I spent years talking with my uncle who pitched for the Cardinals, and some of my friends who played for the Yankees talking baseball. My HS coach played for the Astros and College coach played for Senators & Twins.

    Talking baseball with them was heavenly! I learned more than I could ever produce.

  212. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    I’m not a great Gardner fan, but, he’s tied with the guy he replaced in left field in runs scored and RBI and only 19 points behind in BA and 18 points behind in OBP…in 16 fewer at bats. with much better defense. With Guillen out for awhile, he’s going to have to play some in left. For me, it’s all about run production. Not likely that the numbers stay this close, but,as of right now, Gardner/Winn/Thames is no issue.

    Blake, Doc is on another level from every other pitcher out there, but it’s also ok to be a reasonable facsimile (there will never be another original). He may turn out to be completely different in terms of style – he’s really just a bunch of raw material at this point that is close to being finished, but not quite. We’ll just have to wait and see how it plays out.

    Most of the coaches I’ve heard about don’t make them run the bases or slide for drills. When they do, it is half hearted at best. Times change.

    My Uncle (ex-Cardinal) could not watch a baseball game w/o losing his patience at the lack of fundamentals. He would say they are disrespecting the game!! I use to laugh and tell him that they didn’t know that they were! I miss him!

  218. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 6:12 pm

    m -

    Seriously,

    I think ARod was thoughtless – as in, not thinking at all.

    But, he’s got a rep.

  219. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 6:12 pm

    Billy Ripken, lol. Why exactly did MLB hire him? It wasn’t for his keen analytical insight or his playing ability, that’s for sure. Nepotism 101?

    I don’t even think Alex was doing it to show Braden up; not everything is so calculated. Maybe he just wasn’t thinking; maybe he thought about it and didn’t think it would be a big deal. This is all much ado about nothing.

  220. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    M, word to the wise: don’t read Wally Matthews.

  221. Jerkface April 23rd, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    If I were the Yankees, I’d take every chance I could get to cross the mound next time they enter Bradenia

    He obviously loses his composure over that kind of thing quite easily.

  222. RayVT April 23rd, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    Metal bats are scary! LOL!

    Speaking of fundamentals, it is almost comical at how out of position most of the umpires are on plays.

  223. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    Wally Matthews would do hatchet jobs on all the Yankees if he could; you just can’t take him seriously. The only article I’ve read from him was his one on Phil, but that’s it; ESPN NY is just not that interesting.

  224. Nick in SF April 23rd, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    Did Arod deserve a pi in his face?

  225. Jerkface April 23rd, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Billy Ripken, lol. Why exactly did MLB hire him? It wasn’t for his keen analytical insight or his playing ability, that’s for sure. Nepotism 101?

    Billy is a good media guy, he can talk and make a point without stumbling and has been in the company of good players and a great brother. His show with Cal is usually good, and he is fun to call into it.

    Thats probably why.

  226. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Fortunately, I doubt Alex cares whether other players like him or not. His teammates do – and those are the only ones that count.

  227. CB April 23rd, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    “I’d take every chance I could get to cross the mound next time they enter Bradenia ”

    They wouldn’t even need to cross the border to drive him crazy. All they would need to do is run right by the mound just to the lip of the grass but not step on the vaunted center of the universe and he’ll become distracted beyond belief.

  228. LGY April 23rd, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    “But having re-watched the video — because, honestly, in the course of a baseball game, even one as brief as Thursday’s, few people in the park other than the pitcher are watching a runner’s route back to the bag — I can tell you for sure that A-Rod was being less than truthful when he said he didn’t even know Braden was talking to him.”

    This is the biggest problem with sports journalism today. These guys have become self proclaimed experts when very few if any of them have the knowledge or experience to back it up.

    You “know for sure” Wallace? That is an interesting way to present your opinion.

  229. pat April 23rd, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Cooler heads prevail from A’s reliever Brad Ziegler from twitter…

    “Some ppl have asked about what I thought of the Braden/ARod issue: I think it was competitive fire getting the best of both guys – a heat of … the moment thing betw too extremely intense ballplayers. While I’m honestly not sure how I feel about the territorial issues, I will say: I’ve NEVER seen a position player run across the mound before. It may be bc they don’t wanna turn an ankle running up the slope or something. But I’ve always seen them run around the mound when they cross the infield… Either way, I hope the good baseball that was played yesterday doesn’t get lost in all this. And when we step on the field tonight, everything about yesterday’s game is forgotten …”

  230. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Eh, Jerkface – to me he’s where he is because of his brother. His comment about Alex sounds absolutely obnoxious……

  231. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    I’d suggest that Braden save his paychecks and get his teeth fixed or replaced. He won’t be a long lasting ML pitcher. Three times around the league for his career and they’ll figure him out.

  232. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 23rd, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    Ziegler should talk to Braden as he started this whole thing. Then again, the media has made WAY to big of a deal about this; I’d like to think Alex and company are having a good laugh at Mr. Master of the Universe.

  233. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 23rd, 2010 at 6:21 pm

    That may be, but he isn’t a bad analyst. I like him on MLB Network and the radio show. That doesn’t mean I agree with every one of his opinions. Reynolds and Larkin were mostly bemused by the incident, though Larkin thought it was gamesmanship.

    The one thing I do not get about the Alex thing is that even if Alex did it intentionally and there is some unwritten rule, what is the big deal?

    I really do not care for the whole unwritten rule nonsense. If it is not in the rule book, then I have absolutely no problem with Alex doing it to try to get Braden rattled. The only thing that matters is winning.

    And, if it is some unwritten rule that Alex and everyone else is aware of, then Alex did it knowing there were potential consequences for his actions (like getting thrown out next time he is up). If he wants to take that risk and thinks it is worth it, that is his decision.

    Some on the blog know I played soccer at a much higher level than baseball. Soccer goalies cannot stand when you get in their way on corner kicks and other free kicks. There is nothing more that gets them angry than being bumped into, elbowed, getting their foot stomped on, having their view obstructed, etc on those kicks. If you did one of those things, you better expect getting a fist to the back of the head as they go to punch a ball away or an elbow to the face as they come down with a ball. I have always been fully aware of all this.

    That said, I have never passed up an opportunity to get in a goalie’s way or give him a nice elbow on one of those plays, because it was worth it when the ball hit the back of the net. And, I have taken more hits to the head than I can count.

    Probably explains a lot of my posts on here… :)

  249. m April 23rd, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    How ironic that Ron Washington is!

    “In our era, we were afraid to steal third with two outs,” said Washington, who began his major league career in 1977, and finished in 1989. “Kids today aren’t afraid today because they don’t take responsibility for their mistakes anymore. And, when a hitter gets to second, the pitcher is concentrating on the hitter. It’s easier to be a daring baserunner today.”

  250. GreenBeret7 April 23rd, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    He’s used it once this year, but, quite a few times last year. He’s a throwback.

  254. m April 23rd, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    Nick,

    Are you kidding? I was the queen of tiny url before. But the blog started truncating the links, so I’ve forgone it. :P

    good stuff from Uncle Larry:

    There is a debate in baseball about the importance of getting to third base, even with two outs.

    “I’m baffled by people who don’t think it’s important,” said Bowa. “There are eight more ways to score from third than there is from second, like with an error or a wild pitch. The pressure on the infielder is greater with a man on third. If you have a nasty split, you can’t bury one, or bury a curveball, for fear of a wild pitch. Then he flattens one out, and someone hits it hard somewhere. It changes the mindset when you get a man to third.”

    Yeah. Sadly, he’s about two years too late. His job is toast. For such a proud franchise, they are the worst fundamentally sound teams in baseball. surprising with players like Markaksis and Roberts. both of them should have ripped their team mates apart.

    We didn’t. The armored police cruiser had its tracks blow off as it appeared. It kept firing at us even though it couldn’t move.

    He muttered rodentine curses under his breath as he drove. Or rather bounced. We eventually came to a farm road that led us back to the paved roads, and our bounding progress was smoother after this. Paka seemed to know the country well because we proceeded through side streets and back alleys, until we reached an industrial site of workshops and small businesses. We jolted to a stop next to Udongo’s Financial Services. The engine stopped and we sighed down as the pistons relaxed. Paka unlocked the door and led us inside.

    Angelina went to the door, waited a moment then opened it. The hall was empty. I took out my detector and swept the room. The captain had been busy. Two coins, bugs, in the chair where he had been seated. More under the carpeting and in the wastebasket. They sparked and crunched when I stepped on them until the green light on the detector blinked.

    I screeched low over a rock-tipped ridge, dived into the valley beyond-and braked to a hover under the trees below. Angelina had the door open as we juddered to a stop, the kit thrown out, and was diving right out behind it when I hit the twosecond-delay button. I was cutting it a little too close: the doorframe hit my bootheel as I went out. I changed the dive into a roll, hit the ground hard on my shoulders and thudded to a stop, all of the air knocked out of me.

    With a single bound the kangaroodle hurled itself into the air. Springs and pistons absorbed the shock of landingthen it was off again on another immense leap. It was comfortable enough when we were in the air, but my chin hit my collarbone each time we struck the ground. Behind us the police cruiser roared into life and came after us, siren screaming. Our transport of delight was good in heavy traffic; leaping over any vehicles in its way. But its speed on the open road could not match that of a wheeled vehicle. As the traffic lightened the police began to catch up. We were bounding through an industrial area now. With factories on both sides of the road. At . the next junction buildings changed to fencing and I pointed with my free hand.

    So far Chaise had kept his word. The promised money had been deposited to my account in the Banco di NAPSLO. Despite the fact that I was sure that this cache of money was unknown to anyone. Chaise must really know about banks and banking. This could not be ignored. I made a mental note to find a new and more secure bank now that Chaise knew about this one. And an even newer and more secure way of transferring all my funds from my present bank. I was sure that if Chaise knew how to put credits into my accounthe might very well be able to siphon them out as well.

She has not said so in that many words, but living in a space suit for days on end does not do much for one’s hairdo. Not to mention personal hygiene. We have been talking of alternative possibilities that might necessitate a little break from the joys of airlessness and free fall. She, as I do, of course, has a keen interest in art history, archaeology, and, interestingly enough, the banking profession. Between working spells as an agent for the Special Corps I have always indulged myself in a fiduciary hobby. Some investing here, a little bit of takeover bidding and asset stripping there. Just for fun, as you might imagine. But my bank balance is a pretty solid one. Such a coincidence, your new interest in the banking profession.”

A newly patched up Bolivar wandered about the suite, detector in one hand, a barbecued porcuswine rib in the other, checking the detectors.

    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.

    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. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    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.
