Pinch hitting: Pete Colgan

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 11, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Today’s Pinch Hitter is a familiar part of this series. Pete Colgan lives in Peoria, Ill. – the hometown of Joe Girardi – and he’s followed the Yankees since 1962. Pete and Joe actually went to the same high school, but 10 years apart, and they’ve never met. Although Pete’s always lived in Peoria, he wrote that he has many fond memories of visiting New York and going to Yankee Stadium, especially in the 70s and 80s.

For his blog post this year, Pete reflects on what it means to have lost Robinson Cano. Specifically, how have other teams moved on, and how can the Yankees do the same?

Robinson CanoRobinson Cano is gone. Had he stayed with the Yankees, he might have become their all-time greatest Yankees second baseman. At the very least he would have remained the anchor of the infield. Make no mistake, it was a significant loss. Losing your best player is never a good thing, but it happened. Time for a little perspective and a look ahead.

From a perspective standpoint, the Yankees have been here many times before in some manner. Babe Ruth retired, and within a couple of years, Joe DiMaggio arrived and the Yankees won four straight championships. Lou Gehrig benched himself early in the 1939 season with what turned out to be a fatal illness, and the Yankees went on to win the 1939 World Series. DiMaggio retired, and Mickey Mantle arrived, and through that transition the Yankees won five straight championships. No, it is not always that easy. When Mantle retired there was no one to replace him, but within a decade the Yankees assembled a team that won championships again.

You see, the Yankees have a long history of overcoming adversity. There always seems to be a new chapter right around the corner. So, when Buck Showalter was fired and Don Mattingly’s career ended following the 1995 playoffs, it seemed the longest World Series drought since Babe Ruth appeared on the scene would continue indefinitely. But the guy someone called “Clueless Joe” in a newspaper headline arrived the next year and a championship roster was assembled and the Yankees have been competitive ever since (in case you haven’t heard, “Clueless Joe” Joe Torre is headed for Cooperstown wearing a Yankees cap on his plaque).

I could write all day about adversity and player losses turning into something positive. We can only hope the loss of Cano becomes a positive in the long run. At least the Yankees did not go 10 years again on a player on the wrong side of 30 years old. A signing like that creates adversity (see the A-Rod contract details and all his issues). But my all-time favorite story of adversity turning into a positive occurred in August 1964. I was celebrating my 10th birthday, and the Yankees were in a tight race with the Orioles and the White Sox. In Chicago, the Yankees ended up losing all four games of their series against the Sox. I listened to all the games on the Chicago radio station in disappointment. What happened after game four, a day game, seemingly put an end to any hope of a pennant in New York. The team bus was stuck in the afternoon Chicago rush hour traffic when reserve infielder Phil Linz pulled out his new harmonica and began to play “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” Yankees manager Yogi Berra took exception to Linz’s playing telling him to “put (the harmonica) in his back pocket” (at least that is how Bobby Richardson recalled the incident in his recently published book). Words were exchanged, according to reports from that incident, but not much else happened. Except that the story was reported in the national media and seemed to be a huge embarrassment for the organization. But an amazing thing happened next.

The Yankees started winning and wound up winning the pennant by a game over the White Sox. Some have pointed to that day as a turning point in the Yankee season that caused everyone to focus on playing well and ultimately asserted manager Berra’s authority (most of his players were his teammates just one year prior). Of course it all fell apart immediately after the 1964 World Series and for nearly 10 years that followed until George Steinbrenner bought the franchise, which began the next turnaround. Phil Linz, never a household name, would likely have been forgotten had it not been for that incident. Many have possibly forgotten Linz hit a ninth-inning home run in St Louis off Bob Gibson in the seventh game of the World Series as part of a rally that unfortunately fell short by two runs.

So with spring training right around the corner and no Robinson Cano reporting to camp, a new focus is needed. One could argue the infield is a mess, and that may be correct. But championship teams have been assembled with spare parts or players from the “scrap heap.” The addition of guys named Ellsbury, McCann, Beltran and Tanaka may ease the blow of the Cano loss. But even with these additions a few things are needed for a serious run this coming October.

CC Sabathia1. Comeback Player of the Year
At least two Yankees with multiple years remaining on their contracts need to be in the running for this designation. CC Sabathia is coming off a rough 2013 campaign and must return at least close to his former ace status. Mark Teixeira. who recently has admitted to some tightness in his surgically repaired wrist, must also prove he can return to form. Derek Jeter may also belong on this list, but his contract ends at the conclusion of the season, so there is possibly more focus on key players whose contracts run a few more seasons.

2. Youthful pitching must step up
This is an ongoing process that is needed, not only in 2014, but in 2015 and beyond. The Tanaka signing is a positive step, and there is hope that the Pineda trade will finally pay off. Then there is a need for some of the young pitchers to finally regain their health, which starts with Manny Banuelos and includes a number of other (far too many) recently injured young pitchers, a list that would include Vidal Nuno and David Phelps, both of whom appeared in the Bronx last summer. The back end of the bullpen will be assembled for Opening Day likely from the residuals of the fifth-starter competition. So the expected Opening Day rotation of Sabathia, Kuroda, Nova, Tanaka and “to be determined” from spring competition might have some issues as well. It is looking more likely that any new openings to the rotation will have to be filled from within. A trade or perhaps a late free agent signing is possible but not likely. Pitching is what wins championships (see 1996-2000) and a lack of sufficient pitching depth has the opposite effect (1980′s come to mind).

3. Meaningful September Call Ups
Even with several players coming to New York on multiple-year contracts, there are many contracts which expire after 2014. A few names on the list include Jeter, Soriano, Kuroda and Suzuki along with potential free agents Gardner and Robertson. So the in-season and particularly September call-ups need to include players ready to step up, and possibly be ready for a key role the next Opening Day. The process needs to repeat in coming seasons as well. This list includes the young pitchers but also position players, perhaps Slade Heathcott, Mason Williams and Gary Sanchez among others. The Yankees could be in a world of hurt if their upper-level prospects fizzle out as some believe they might.

4. No more “56″
This represents the number of players who put on a uniform for the Yankees in 2013, mainly due to injuries and an unfortunate need for multiple players to pass through the revolving door looking for the right fit at certain positions (shortstop and third base mainly). This simply cannot happen if the Yankees expect to contend again (am I the only one that in retrospect is amazed that the 2013 Yankees won 85 games?).

So while Cano could have become the all-time great Yankee at second base with his number 24 immortalized in Monument Park, he is gone and the direction of the franchise has changed drastically over the winter. Big signings from this year’s major league free agent pool and one BIG international signing have happened. But are those offseason maneuvers enough? Spring training is upon us and we are about to find out. My take is it will be as much about the newcomers as the players returning from injuries and bad seasons and ultimately must come from organizational depth assuming the talent is there, obviously a concern. Time for a few good young men to step up.

    Well the yanks have built a club loaded with injury risk so…….

    I fully expect at least 1 or 2 of their MiLB guys to break out this year.

    It’s overdue.

  3. Cashmoney February 11th, 2014 at 9:13 am

    Trade Nova for Brett Lawrie then sign Diaz, boom! moving on from Cano and visions of apocalyptic ending in his absence.

  4. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 9:18 am

    Another “buck uP – Robi’s gone” story?
    FYI: He is already the greatest 2B in Yankee history.
    ////
    Imagine if they’d signed him and also acquired Castro. Be some Crazy infield.

  5. MTU February 11th, 2014 at 9:23 am

    Nova is a very attractive trade chip but only as long as the Yankees acquire additional pitching first.

    He gets you a lot of things.

    He’s been shopped.

    When you need young, cost-controlled pitching you might offer quite a bit.

    He is a sell high guy right now.

  6. Tackelberry February 11th, 2014 at 9:25 am

    ANyone see Tanaka’s game on YES last night? Was just curious what anyone’s thoughts were on how he looked.

  7. Tackelberry February 11th, 2014 at 9:26 am

    WHy does everyone want to trade Nova? He is a very important part of the rotation and unless we are getting another pitcher back, would leave a big hole in the rotation.

  8. MTU February 11th, 2014 at 9:29 am

    Tackel-

    We would have to acquire more pitching 1st.

    Why ?

    You will have to ask the Yankees that.

    They have their reasons.

    ;)

  9. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 9:31 am

    I do not advocate trading Nova. But if Castro really were available, you’d have to kick the tires, but I’d strain to keep Nova out of it. Give
    Them Pineda instead in the package.

    I really wanted to watch it but I don’t get YES on my cable network (use MLB.tv during the season). Did anybody watch his start?

    I’d like to see a bit more than the highlight reels on youtube.

    Well nobody really wants to but he’s pretty much their best chip to trade…..the deal would have to make sense and they’d have to replace him in the rotation

  12. Tackelberry February 11th, 2014 at 9:33 am

    MTU:

    Of course. But I am not crazy about either Ervin Santana or Ubaldo Jimenez. Santana would be another Hughes in YS with the home run ball, and JImenez, who knows which Ubaldo we would get. The one from the 2nd half od 2013 or the one from 2012- first half of 2013

  13. Locke February 11th, 2014 at 9:34 am

    I really hope the Yankees don’t trade Nova. He’s young, cost-controlled, and shows the ability to be a #1 pitcher when he’s on. He seems like a player who will get better as he gets older and matures.

    I’m a big Nova fan.

  14. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 9:35 am

    There are people here
    Who are trying to trade
    nova
    Every five minutes it seems. He’s an emerging ace who gets
    GB and has that wipeout curve and is a VAto Beast :)

  15. Cashmoney February 11th, 2014 at 9:35 am

    Tackel, you underscore the big holes on our inf. Now when we talk about this, we talk about the immediate present of maintain a championship caliber contender and the possible welfare of the Yankees in 15 and beyond. Yanks don’t have lot options internally (Pirela). So stocking up inf talents or trading for a Castro or a lawrie (the mere idea of ) is something you should consider imo. Sure, Nova’s absence would certainly leave a big hole but at least Yankees starting pitching depth on ML level and upper minor are less paltry to that of on the infield.

    Castro is the closest thing to a young Cano that is realistic to get……24 years old…..8.5 AAV and big offensive upside…..of course those are reasons for the Cubs to keep him too

  17. Cashmoney February 11th, 2014 at 9:36 am

    actually, I rather go after Baez kid for Nova, but Theo would laugh in Yankees face.

  18. Barry February 11th, 2014 at 9:37 am

    Babe Ruth, of course, did not retire from or as a New York Yankee.

  19. blake February 11th, 2014 at 9:38 am

    Santana fly ball rate in 2013 was basically the same as Kuroda’s…..and it’s been under 40% for 3 straight years. I’m not saying he’s a perfect fit for YS but I don’t think he’s the same pitcher he was 3 or 4 years ago either…..he’s usually his CU a lot more these days

    I’m surprised there’s still talk about Santana or Ubaldo. It does make you wonder if a trade isn’t in the works, but either way it’s an indictment of their faith in Pineda if they buy a guy like that to be their #4 or #5.

  22. blake February 11th, 2014 at 9:40 am

    Santana on a 2 or 3 year deal wouldn’t be bad…..him or Ubaldo either one. I just don’t think they need to do that unless a deal for nova that makes sense is out there……the money would be more wisely spend on Drew

  23. Shame Spencer February 11th, 2014 at 9:40 am

    FTR I’d be surprised if they added more pitching… I hope Pineda ends up being amazing and if he could start this year that’d be sweet.

    Did anyone watch Tanaka’s game last night on YES? Thoughts?

  24. Cashmoney February 11th, 2014 at 9:41 am

    I’m a big Nova fan.
    ======
    I like Nova too, the idea of trading him for a young talent is a fluid one. I am not gonna get stuck on Cano (he is gone) and be woe is me for even a second. So be creative, look at your surplus and assess what you have and try to find ways to mitigate Cano’s loss. I am not saying it’s a great idea to trade Nova but it’s an idea one can entertain consider what the yankees have in terms ready or near ready pitching prospect and what they have in infielders.

  25. Tackelberry February 11th, 2014 at 9:43 am

    I new you couldn’t get through a thread without pining for Drew again. LOL!!!!!

  26. Tackelberry February 11th, 2014 at 9:45 am

    Best case scenario would be Pineda proving he’s healthy and winning the 5th starter spot and Banuelos impressing this Spring and koncking heavily on the door.

    Shame, not reading Nova and I’m certainly never Prting with him for the Brett Lawries of the wOrld.

    No one can have NOva or Sanchez but for Castro I’m oPen to putting a nice package together.

    Blake, he does have that I can hit Ny pitch thing Robi had mOre a few yrs Go and could be special hitter. If he s really “available” remains to be seen, I would
    Doubt it, regardless of Javier comes Of age

  33. MTU February 11th, 2014 at 9:52 am

    No. Not exactly.

    They want a bargain.

    Same goes w Santana.

  34. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 9:52 am

    They might just wind up with one.

  39. Tackelberry February 11th, 2014 at 9:55 am

    I agree on Castro Blake. Theo is one of the shrewdest GMs in the game. He’d have to be blown out of the water to trade Castro.

    Jap, at age 23, Lawrie has already accrued more WAR than Nova did in 4 seasons at age 26. What world are we talking about? The world of potentials?

  42. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 9:58 am

    Much for that

  44. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    I’m not trading Ivan Nova. But I absolutely would not even listen tO trading him for anything but a rangy young MiF w/ a projectile stick. That means no way I mOve him for Brett Lawrie.

  45. MTU February 11th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    Maybe the Yankees would like to make a fresh start ?

  46. Locke February 11th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    Cashmoney: I am not saying it’s a great idea to trade Nova but it’s an idea one can entertain consider what the yankees have in terms ready or near ready pitching prospect and what they have in infielders.

    ———

    If they could land a significant infield piece I’d be fine with them trading him; I’d trade Mike Trout for the right package.

    I take issue with this message board constantly complaining about the Yankees failing to develop impact players, but insisting that we trade BG, Nova, Pineda, Sanchaz, etc. Sometimes the trades give away useful pieces for overpriced and under-performing players.

    I do like Starlin Castro, but he would take a lot more than Nova and he had a horrible year last year. 2013 Slash line: .245 .284 .347 (129 SO! and 30BB)

    Compare that with somebody we could get for less money and we we keep Nova – Emilio Bonifacio hit .243 .295 .331 last year.

    I know Castro has youth and showed more promise in previous years, but it seems like many here often undervalue our home grown players. I think Brett Gardner and Nova are strongly undervalued on this site.

  47. blake February 11th, 2014 at 10:03 am

    “Getting a young, cost-controlled potential front line pitcher is pretty overwhelming.”

    See I don’t think Nova is that….kinda doubt theo does either but if he does ok. As I’ve said…..I don’t really know what Nova is right now

  48. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 10:06 am

    Chad,

    CAn we cease with photos of Cano throwing across his bOdy. Thanks in advance.

  49. Cashmoney February 11th, 2014 at 10:07 am

    Lawrie has the potential being of excellent average hitter with 20 plus hr pops in his bat, defensively, I have seen him quite a bit, I see good range at 2b and 3b with a plus arm (4.6 DWAR). That, to me, fits the Yankees wonderfully at 2 spots.

  50. MTU February 11th, 2014 at 10:08 am

    Blake-

    Our evaluations and those of professionals can be completely different.

    And frequently are.

    No question that Nova has frontline potential.

    Both Castro and Nova come w their share of issues.

    The needs on both sides are there.

    The ages and pricing are similar.

    So who knows ?

    ;)

  51. Cashmoney February 11th, 2014 at 10:08 am

  54. Tackelberry February 11th, 2014 at 10:11 am

    If Yanks are gonna make another move, it probably won’t be til later in ST. At this point they will want to see what they have in house first. Will want to see what guys like Dean Anna, Solarte, etc. show, if anything. Same with the bullpen and guys like MOntgomery, Whitley, Daley. Then later in ST, they might make a deal or 2 if necessary as teams rosters begin to take shape.

  55. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 10:11 am

    Locke, I am with you on not mOving Sanchez/NovA.

    Would I package Pineda/Gardner/Murphy/Ty Austin for him with Shane Green thrown in? Yes. Would I stretch to Bryan Mitchell? Yes. Swap out Austin for Heathcott? Yes.

    If they sign Ubaldo and spin Nova doesn’t it put their faith in Pineda right back where it started?

  57. Locke February 11th, 2014 at 10:11 am

    Cashmoney,

    You’re probably right. My point wasn’t that we need to get Bonifacio, my point was that last year Castro wasn’t much better IMO. If we wouldn’t even pickup Bonifacio for 3.5mm then why would we pick up Castro’s $55mm owed plus trade valuable pieces like Nova?

  58. joeman February 11th, 2014 at 10:11 am

    if Pinedais 100% I would have no problem trading Nova…then kicking te tires in one of the remaining FA pitchers

  59. DONNYBROOK February 11th, 2014 at 10:12 am

    I disagree as to the Value of Nova. Bearing in mind what the market value of Montero was at the time, Seattle/Pineda required a pretty penny. Based on the length of his MLB track record and the Current direction in which he is headed, Nova is certainly worth More Now, than Pineda was Back Then.

    Bonifacio was a disaster at 2B for Toronto nearly every time I saw him. The Jays thought his footwork and lack of range plus the turf made fOr indigestible stew. I’d rather throw Joe Pirela at 2B than waste

    Pineda is healthy and ready to go.

    Question is can he STAY healthy ?

    And how many innings can he give out of the 5 slot ?

  65. Bret The Hitman February 11th, 2014 at 10:16 am

    MTU,

    Where is the Ubaldo stuff coming from? Wanzies or has there been some blurb in mainstream media?

  66. Locke February 11th, 2014 at 10:17 am

    Ivan Nova by month last year:

    April: 6.48 ERA (Yikes)
    May (only 6IP): 1.5 ERA
    June:(only 12.1 IP) 3.65 ERA
    July: 2.03 ERA
    August: 2.08 ERA
    September: 3.90 ERA

    To me it seems like he really got it together after he was sent down. During the second half of the season I’d argue he was our best starter.

    If we wouldn’t even pickup Bonifacio for 3.5mm then why would we pick up Castro’s $55mm owed plus trade valuable pieces like Nova?
    —-
    first, I be hesitant in pick up Bonifacio for 300k, it would be monumentally stupid for the Yankees to nickel and dime for garbage that actually would add up financially to infante’s avv where the latter gives you far more assurance.

    On Castro, it was an discussion of trading talent for talent, it’s an idea worth exploring. Timeline wise, I see much more of possibility of this happening after all star break but even more likely in 15.

    Castro and Bonafacio aren’t comparable at all ….Bonofacio is like Nunez…..Castro had the potential to be a cano like player

  71. Bret The Hitman February 11th, 2014 at 10:23 am

    Is this the blurb, from the Boston Globe?

    1. Ubaldo Jimenez, RHP, free agent — Indians bench coach Brad Mills praised the work pitching coach Mickey Callaway did with Jimenez last season. “He was the one coach who really got through to Ubaldo,” Mills said. “Maybe in the past he had butted heads with people, but Mickey turned him around and got the best out of him. Ubaldo pitched great for us. He’s a big loss, but we’ve moved on with some guys we think can do the job.” There’s still the feeling that Jimenez’s price hasn’t dropped enough to warrant a team jumping in hard, especially with the draft compensation attached. The Blue Jays and Yankees could still be possibilities.

    I guess we just disagree on how valuable Castro is. I realize he is only 24 and should trend upwards, but he took a strong step back last year while Nova took a strong step forward.

    Locke, Castro comes at a steep price, I would rather Yanks pry a Didi or Owing from AZ, price might be less than a Nova. Also take look at Cuban Diaz, be it at ss or 2b. I be worry about Castro outgrow SS physically. bat wise, I think he can hit but lack discipline. Darn good defensive SS but with concern about the outgrowth.

  78. Cashmoney February 11th, 2014 at 10:29 am

    Cash:

    I like the idea of getting a SS from AZ. Diaz isn’t as polished as some of the other recent Cuban signers, but he’s young and fits the Yankees needs. I think both of those are good ideas for the FO to pursue.

    I haven’t watched him much besides a few games against the Braves, so I’ll take your word on Castro’s defense. His batting statistics still don’t blow me away.

    MTU: It would be great to have the two dueling Japanese pitchers and a combo of base stealers. (Though all my Braves fan friends though the Upton brothers were going to feed of each other last year.)

    DONNYBROOK:

    I’m guessing we see him pitch 3rd. That way he can pitch to the Astros for his first start. Heck, that might be an easier lineup than he’s use to. :) Though it would line him up to pitch to the Sox on a Sunday night for his third start.

    If he is the 4th starter then he can skip the Sox and get to play the Cubs on JR day.

  96. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 10:45 am

    FTR, I don’t want to deal away any of those prospects.

    Bryan Mitchell is a very good young arm and highly rated by the Yankees, Murphy I have always liked, second only to Sanchez. Tyler Austin is going to hit in the majors and Heathcott, despite his tongue-hanging, all-out, “efforting” style (which I’m not wild about), has some serious tools. Pineda looked pretty good in Trenton when I saw one of his rehab appearances last year…(I prefer Nova’s propensity for getting GB in YS and the fact that he has four pitches). Gardner, at age 30, has possibly made a permanent leap to being a much better hitter…

    That’s a lot of young potential/high upside and a guy who defensive metrics are in love with, in addition to his added dimension of hitting to go with SB prowess; it’s not a crummy package and it would be a boatload to part with.

    But I get to keep Nova/Sanchez and don’t part with young arms Jo-Ram, DePaula, Manny.

    If Castro never fulfills, oh well.

  97. Cashmoney February 11th, 2014 at 10:45 am

  99. J. Alfred Prufrock February 11th, 2014 at 10:55 am

    Anyhow, doubt Castro is actually available, and I’m not terribly into the whole fantasy trade thing. It’s just that he would instantly fill the urgent criteria for young MIF with tremendous upside.

    The Yankees are starved for such a young up-the-middle type talent, and unless Culver really continues north per the positive upturn (as strictly a RHH) that he enjoyed second half last year, it’s a long, long wait to guys like Abiatal Avellino at SS position.

    supposed to be high: terrific bat speed, power stroke, prototypical 3B type, better than average glove.

    I’ve seen one video of the guy; he looks good but I’m relying on reports that he could be special.

    He may be in SI in June, or maybe he goes straight to Charleston, in which case, we’ll catch him early in Lakewood for a 3-game set.

  111. LathamJoe February 11th, 2014 at 11:10 am

    I watched the first 5 innings of Tanaka’s performance last night against the Yomiura Giants. He definitely has very good stuff, his splitter being his best pitch (86-88 mph with sharp downard movement ). His fast ball sits between 91-93 and reached a few ticks higher once or twice. The slider IMO is his weakest pitch – inconsistent location. His overall command is good but not great. Although I didn’t get a pitch count, I was concerned with the number of pitches that he threw. My biggest concern (like most everyone else) is how his stuff will translate to MLB batting orders. The lineup he faced last night (and every pitching performance in his career so far) is AAA-level. (Casey McGehee, a .150 NYY castoff was a Rakuten teammate & key hitter in Japan with a 289/.371/.512/27 HR slashline in Japan). What happens when The East division lineups seem Tanaka after a few tours? Longetivity over 7 years is another big concern. I understand and support the Front Office signing of Tanaka, primarily because of the desperate situation that the NYY MiLB is in. But $155 Mil/7 years is a reach.

Proudly, she didn said a curse word until she was 4 and that was it She only said it once because I told her it was wrong to say that and only adults could. She bought it. She is 8 now and calls me on EVERY Damn, St and lord help me, Fk that comes out of my mouth. She gets SO offended,and it thankfully not too often that I do it. My husband drops a string of f bombs when he really mad and that a little more obvious than mine. But one of my 4 y/o twins is fond of damn it. She gets it from me because I say it all the time now. Twins taxed my ability to curb my cursing. Yesterday, I heard her saying oh, Huck I asked her what it meant and she said Stupid is really bad in our house. So, she gets its, unfortunately.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    The more you tap the faster the ring will form. I was a casual tapper, I tapped while I watched TV. My first ring took a year to finish. If you’re the impatient type you can speed up the process by using a hammer and a hard surface. If you do this you risk bending or warping the coin and your finished ring will look crude and rough. The small taps of the spoon give a much smoother beveled look.

    Designer Julien Macdonald recently told Grazia magazine that pregnancy has brought out the Duchess saucy side, citing her raised hemlines. Case in point: the black and white animal print Hobbs coat she wore for her last solo engagement, to launch the Royal Princess cruise ship. not something you normally see on pregnant women and it bound to start a new maternity trend, noted Macdonald. dresses are actually very short, shorter than she ever wears usually. That been her trick, and it working pregnancy has made her sexier. her look elegant, demure and largely affordable, the Duchess is proving to be a different style icon from the couture clad Diana, Princess of Wales, with a wardrobe anchored by ladylike looks from High Street and mainly British designer labels. Jenny Packham, Emilia Wickstead, Temperley and Whistles are some of the brands blessed by the so called effect Tills ring each time she slips on a dress, with her outfits often selling out online in mere minutes, be it the royal blue Issa wrap dress she wore for the official announcement of her engagement to Prince William in October 2010, or the polka dot Topshop maternity dress she wore to a wedding last May. She even reuses pieces, hitherto considered a faux pas in high society, earnestly recycling outfits as if her pocket money depended on it; a savvy move in money crunched times. No modern day Marie Antoinette is she.
