I lived in the same apartment building (same floor) as Hazel Mae when she was in Boston. Not as hot in person as on camera.
Phil Hughes – you are seeing the league adjust to him a bit. They were overpowered by his fastball early in the season and he is getting into a bit of a rut with his pitch selection. Time for him to adjust back and incorporate the rest of his repertoire more fully.
EA might be leaving ESPN to do the ‘entertainment career’….she’ll never admit it but she loves the attention that the ‘peephole’ incident has brought her…..outside of sports fans(college football and some baseball) no one knew who she was
Actually, a lot of masters level students take an advanced statistics course in addition to the normal undergrad prerequisite so they can decipher, use, and implement data they’re using for purposes of their thesis. This holds true for most pHd students as well. No matter the concentration, most have to have some higher level of understanding to adequately write any sort of publication.
One of my guilty pleasures is listening to Kim Jones. She’s got some cute lispy thing going on…I don’t know but it’s attractive. I don’t get tired of watching Hazel Mae either for that matter. I guess executives know what they are doing when they mix a pretty face with someone who knows what they are talking about.
“Basically it means anything less than 100 opportunities is worthless. Also, probably 5% of the values of 100% would be discarded as outliers or not the norm.”
Just so I understand what is being argued, are you saying that until a pitcher has 3 full seasons of starts (and assuming no change in ability during those three years) you can’t draw any conclusions as to what type of start would fall outside of his “expected” range of starts?
Montero should be left alone in Scranton for the rest of the season and allowed to continue the trend that he’s established as well as develop his defensive game whih is most important for him at this stage….
If any C prospect were to get traded for Lee it has to be Romine who while I’m sure will be a fine major league catcher does not posess the ceiling of either Montero or Sanchez….
I for one am against trading for Lee mid season….he will be available in the offseason for just a check….
The one wild card is if AJ’s bad streak becomes an injury then you make the move around Romine, Adams and one of Phelps/Nova/McCallister…..
To me Romine,Adams and Noesi is a lot to give up but it’s buffered by the reality that the Yanks wiil retain Lee so it’s not just a rental and the depth that we have behind each guy is actually better than the guys we’d give up i.e. Montero/Sanchez, Brackman/Bettances/Banny….Adams I think is going to be a real real good hitter but guys like Joseph/Paredes/Suttle I think have an excellent chance to be excellent infield prospects as early as next season
The Yankees are likely not trading for Cliff Lee just like they didn’t trade for CC Sabathia or for Johan Santana. It’s nice to throw around the possibilities but the chances of it actually happening are pretty remote.
