Off day notes and links: Shifting, transitioning and rapping

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 08, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Just a very few notes and links on this quiet off day in Milwaukee.

Yangervis Solarte• Good work by the ESPN New York guys to bring Danny Knobler on board. Today he came out with a story about the Yankees use of the defensive shift (it’s also kind of a look at their quiet tendency toward advanced metrics and data-driven decision making). “We consider them a smart organization,” Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow told Knobler. “They don’t talk about it a lot. They don’t get a lot of publicity for it. But we do think they’re a progressive organization.” The shift has been a big issue this year — for the Yankees use of it, and for the Yankees struggles to beat it — and Knobler’s piece is a good read.

• Another running theme this season is CC Sabathia’s difficult transition to this later stage of his career. As the Yankees prepare for a weekend series in Milwaukee, where Sabathia had perhaps the best stretch of his career, Jorge Castillo looks at the transition of Jered Weaver as a kind of road map for Sabathia. Castillo also points out some of the stats that suggest Sabathia might have pitched better than his ERA suggests.

• Donnie Collins points out that Scranton/Wilkes-Barre outfielder Ramon Flores has now started two straight games at first base. It’s not the first time Flores has played the position, but it’s the first time in a while. He wouldn’t be a typical first base bat — more on base and speed than true power — but Flores is off to a strong start this season, and the Yankees are heavy on left-handed outfielders. First base could be a little bit of extra versatility that helps him get to the big leagues.

Eduardo Nunez is back in the big leagues. The Twins called him up today to replace Sam Fuld, who’s on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion. Nunez was hurt for a little while this season, but he’s hit .282/.293/.385 while playing shortstop, third base and even a game in right field for the Twins’ Triple-A team. His only other call-up this season came as the 26th man for a double header.

• I’m not a huge hip-hop fan, but there are definitely nights at the stadium when I’m covering a game with Eric B. and Rakim in the headphones. Anyway, it has nothing to do with baseball, but I thought this study by a guy named Matt Daniels was really interesting. He went looking for the largest vocabulary in rap, and he compared the variety of words to that of Shakespeare. I’m not sure the study is valuable as anything other than a time waster — or as a new way to appreciate the Wu-Tang Clan — but it’s fascinating in its own way. A guy who goes by Aesop Rock finished at the top of the list. I first heard of Aesop Rock maybe a year and a half ago (told you I’m not a huge hip-hop guy), and he’s good. Definitely worth checking out if you’re into this stuff at all and haven’t listened to him. I’ll now go back to listening to the new Ray LaMontagne album. That’s more my usual speed.

• There is almost no chance I could care less about the NFL draft.

    chicken,
    “Church home” means choosing a church to join. If you are a churchgoer, you will find that the “elite” mostly attend the same church. almost always a Baptist one. There are some others around down there, Presbyterians, Methodists and Catholic, mostly. Somewhere within 75 miles will be a synagogue, a mosque, and probably a Hindu temple. People will ask you if you want to join their ” church home”. Take you time.

    sorry for the repost.

    Tom – thanks for the advice… I had heard of “church home” in that context but for some reason my mind went completely blank :)

    Since I stupidly revealed earlier the plan for chickens to band together and seize control of the blog, I’m guessing everyone will be on guard thus minimizing our chances for success. I’m off to bed to plot my next move :)

    Good night all

    Chad,

    Thanks for that link. I have worked with young people and Shakespeare often, turning soliloquies and monologues into rap rhythms to make the language more accessible. This was done also by the great Voice Coach for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Cicely Berry, who worked with rappers on Shakespeare in the UK. There’s actually a link on youtube of a theater group reciting Shakespeare in rap rhythms and asking the audience to identify whether it was contemporary or Shakespeare. Many thought it was contemporary. Iambic pentameter is the way we actually speak and also mimics the heartbeat: “bop-BOM! bop-BOM!….” Shakespeare was never the province of the “elite” in his time, he was speaking to/from/through the people of his time, all levels of society understood him and the “mirror he “(held) up to nature.” I have saved this link, thanks again! :D

    I didn’t watch the whole thing. The Rays left a ton on base. Now Baltimore gets a 3-game series with Houston. Yanks can’t afford to do poorly in Milwaukee.

    Thanks for the interesting post, Chad. I will check out the metrics article. And the hip hop/Shakespeare link sounds promising as well.

    Hi comet, I’m doing fine! I hope things are good with you. Glad you are having such nice weather. It was rainy here today. But it is supposed to clear and be in mid 60′s tomorrow. And it will really heat up for next week’s NYS Yanks-Mets series. Not that I am a fan of these Subway series… And you are welcome regarding the MiLB reports.

    Chicken, I wrote a long post about RI for you, but I will post it when I see you are back on the blog. I can add to it based on what you are into doing/seeing. Have a good night.

    The article linked about shifts says the Yankees have lost 3 net runs due to the shifting, not exactly working well yet. And they no longer shift in Kuroda’s starts because he doesn’t like it.

  22. pat May 8th, 2014 at 11:37 pm

    seems like yesterday….

    “Five years ago today, Alex Rodriguez returned from his hip surgery and PED admission to swat a three-run homer on the very first pitch he saw.”

  23. Yankee Trader May 8th, 2014 at 11:37 pm

    Thanks for the link on The Shift and the data from Baseball Info Solutions. One thing that makes the shift work, that wasn’t mentioned in the article, is having your pitchers pitch to the inside to enhance the probability the batter will hit into the shift. That is what the Rays do. I’ve haven’t watched every inning of every Yankees game, but if have noticed that the pitchers are not doing that.

    There was an article in USA Sports Weekly two years ago, about the shift and how players like Granderson and Kendrys Morales could not ” buy” a single on ground balls hit into the shift, and how David Ortiz claimed it cost him. I often wondered why Granderson, who at least had some speed, would never lay a bunt down the third base line for a hit.

    The Rays have two technical assistants.

    Also Maddon has his infielders moving on occasion during the pitch, when this was mentioned to him, he basically said, ” hmm, I haven’t noticed that. “

    Time to go to sleep.

    Tanaka to bat tomorrow. Hopefully Girardi tells him to not take the bat off his shoulders. No reason to risk an injury running the bases.

    From NY Times:

    Over seven seasons in Japan, his batting average in interleague play was .081. The Rakuten Golden Eagles, Tanaka’s former team, play in the Pacific League, which also uses the D.H., so Tanaka had few opportunities to hone his batting skills.

    In 42 career plate appearances during interleague play, dating to 2007, Tanaka had three hits, including one double and four runs batted in. He struck out 16 times.

    Obrien to Trenton….
    I see them moving him to first base with murphy and Sanchez in front not to mention McCann.
    Him and birth give us two big time hitters that can replace tex in a couple years.

    Yes, this makes the most sense. No one else is ready to move up.

    Think OB’s also going to get some looks at 1B? He can’t really play 3B very well.

  30. UnKnown May 9th, 2014 at 12:28 am

    “Yanks can’t afford to do poorly in Milwaukee.”

    They won’t. I’m in the house. :grin:

    Pruf I will do my best to check in. Not really impressed with the amount of Yankee fans I saw around the city today. I hope for it to really pick up tomorrow. Sat and Sun are sold out so it’s going to be electric.

    Had a whole gang of Sushi tonight in an anticipation of Tank T. Let’s Do This! :cool:

  31. yankeefeminista May 9th, 2014 at 12:28 am

    ah, ac1 just saw your post. It makes sense. Though I still think he getes C, and RF looks. However, there is no one else to play first in Trenton now. Certainly not Fiorito… though I am sure he too will get some reps there.

  32. yankeefeminista May 9th, 2014 at 12:30 am

    “Had a whole gang of Sushi tonight in an anticipation of Tank T. Let’s Do This!”

    Hey Unknown, sounds like you are on it. Good work! I do the same in NYC when Tanak or Kuroda pitch.

  33. yankeefeminista May 9th, 2014 at 12:31 am

    ac1, though think they will want to also keep his value up by giving him some C reps, just in case. Very interested to see how he hits AA pitching. If he plays tomorrow night, he’ll face Jesse Biddle. AA has some very good pitchers with sick breaking stuff.

    Last we saw him, he had a longish swing but walked at least twice. That was in Lakewood with DePaula on the mound. Obviously he won’t catch much with Gary hanging around. CIF/DH for him.

    Sucks that it’s Biddle vs. Manuelito tomorrow. Wish I could be there.

    Also hearing, but not 100 percent sure, that Branden Pinder may have been promoted to Scranton as well.

    This is predictable.

    Swing is definitely longish, the little I saw. This will be very interesting; especially to see how he does vs. breaking pitches.Trenton lineup is going to be lethal. Also we are soon to get back Bryan Mitchell. :)

  37. UnKnown May 9th, 2014 at 1:08 am

    Sounds great, I’m on it. Sneaking in multiple flavors for him to choose from. I fear his supply might be running low. He must have been hitting them hard in LA. :wink:

    Plan of attack is a 3-2 win tomorrow, CC HR leading to a 7 to 3 win on Sat., and a 5-4 Mother’s day Yankee win on Sunday. Not going to be easy and I do believe the whole series hinges on what happens tomorrow. Tanaka needs his split to be straight filth!!

    Check in tomorrow from Miller Park.

    BTW the box score from that game 5 years ago when the GREAT AL (god bless him) went yard had Cano batting 7th. WOWZA that was a fun season. Big Time Prime Time Players are fun to have. At least I like having them on my team. :cool:

  38. yankeefeminista May 9th, 2014 at 1:43 am

    ac1, also Austin has played some 1B, so that is another option…

    Hey chicken, not from Providence but back in the day I used to frequent Camilles on Federal Hill when I had to be in town for business. Good stuff then, if you like Italian which I do. Have not been there for 30 years though so maybe its changed. Known for its mob connections back in the day but they are pretty much out of business there now

  54. Yankee Trader May 9th, 2014 at 7:04 am

    Found this from NY Post:

    When Masahiro Tanaka is on the mound there isn’t a trace of fear oozing from him. When he steps into the batter’s box Friday night against Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo that won’t be the case.
    Asked if was excited to hit, Tanaka said, “No. I will be a little bit scared.’’
    And outside of squaring to bunt, don’t expect much bat movement.
    “I want to get that right,’’ Tanaka said of bunting. “I am not anticipating swinging for now.’’
    Watching AL pitchers bat in interleague games is often hard on the eyes. Even CC Sabathia, the Yankees’ best-hitting starter, often looks overmatched.
    Tanaka estimated he batted 10 times in Japan and realizes he is getting paid to throw the ball, not hit it although he said he homered in high school.
    “My main job is to throw,’’ Tanaka said. “I will focus on that.’’
    Joe Girardi has several concerns about his starters and long relievers doing something that isn’t regular in game situations.
    “They haven’t been swinging for a whole year and they are being asked to bunt,’’ Girardi said. “I saw Javier Vazquez breaking his finger [bunting] and this was a guy who was a good bunter.’’

    You wouldn’t want Ether. However Griffin had the right idea. Go up to bat with a plan- to be intact and get out of the batters box as quickly as possible.

    Rule of thumb: never go into a Coach store with a woman without an exit plan…….

  60. Doreen May 9th, 2014 at 8:08 am

    J. Alfred,

    Enjoyed the link you shared. Entertaining and enlightening.

  61. JimK May 9th, 2014 at 8:34 am

    Enjoyed the article on the Y’s use of the shift, especially the part where the Y’s abandoned the shift at the insistence of Kuroda, who, in his last outing pitched his best game this year(I am not sure, if that was the 1st time the Y’s did not use the shift when Kuroda pitched, however, if it was I do not expect to see the Y’s shift in future Kuroda starts).
    I also believe the Y’s do not have the IF personnel necessary to effectively employ the exaggerated shift in more than the most obvious situations; IMO a successful exaggerated shift requires young, athletic infielders, and not the seasoned veterans currently cluttering the Y’s IF(I am not sure if its the shift, or the new “transfer” rule, but the Y’s seem to be turning less DP’s this year.)
    The shift also requires pitchers who can effectively pitch inside or you wind up with the Tampa Bays situation, where the batters hang over the plate with impunity and instead of “rolling over” on the outside pitch they are able to effectively square up and drive the “outside” pitch. Moreover, while not necessary it would also help if the Y’s SP’s are capable of throwing in the mid to upper 90′s.
    Finally, I find it hard to believe a statistician could possibly analyze all of the data available and come up with a “one size fits all solution.”

  62. blake May 9th, 2014 at 8:35 am

    “Rule of thumb: never go into a Coach store with a woman without an exit plan…….”

  65. JimK May 9th, 2014 at 8:49 am

    Blake, as an individual who, a few years back had a lady friend, that loved visiting numerous upscale fashion stores, including many strolls up Madison Ave, I found that once you enter a Coach, or any upscale store with a woman, the exit plan is of her design and as you wrote “prevention” is your only viable plan.
    The other option is go to Chinatown where the knock-offs are a fraction of the price, however, I do believe NYC has seriously cracked down on the knockoff trade.

  66. Yankee Trader May 9th, 2014 at 8:54 am

    Saturday it’s Lohse vs CC.

    Lohse did not factor into the decision in his last start after he allowed two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a Brewers loss to the Reds. The veteran righty has a career 1-3 record versus the Yankees with a 5.46 ERA over five starts.

    Sunday afternoon it’s Matt Garza vs TBA. Won’t it be Phelps?

  67. JimK May 9th, 2014 at 8:56 am

    YT, IMO, the shift forces pitchers to pitch to the shift rather than to the batter they are facing. I also find it hard to believe that any qualified statistician would take such a broad view on the use of an exaggerated shift; I would think a review of the comprehensive data available would enable a statistician to view how a particular batter fares against a specific pitcher and any fielding adjustments would reflect this more individualized data.

    The Rays have a younger staff that were willing to buy into the Shift. Tex, Granderson, Swisher would never lay down a bunt or just stick the bat out on an outside pitch to poke one down the third base line into left field.

    “Blake, as an individual who, a few years back had a lady friend, that loved visiting numerous upscale fashion stores, including many strolls up Madison Ave, I found that once you enter a Coach, or any upscale store with a woman, the exit plan is of her design and as you wrote “prevention” is your only viable plan.”

    yea an exit plan is difficult…..it’s like a black hole….once you’re in ….hard to get out alive.

    Roberts looked great at second the other night, fielding a ground ball behind second and gloving it over to Jeter for the force out at second, then snaring a hard hit line drive off Betances as he was diving to the first base side.

    If he stays healthy, the Yankees might have a steal of a deal this year at second.

    In a study comparing Glycolic Acid / Kojic Acid combination along with Glycolic Acid / hydroquinone, no (statistical) difference in efficacy was reported between kojic acid and the hydroquinone. however, the kojic acid was reported as more irritating to the skin. Azelaic Acid is shown to be cytotoxic (destructive to skincells) and its efficacy has been compared with a 4% hydroquinone application. It has been used in the treatment of acne and it has been successfully used in the treatment of lentigines, rosacea, and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. A dermatologist may prescribe this as a 20% cream, combined with glycolic acid (15% 20). This formulation has been reported to be as effective as a 4% hydroquinone cream, but with a higher rate of skin irritation and contact dermatitis.

    There is a definite difference between trees shedding leaves during the autumn season and trees without leaves on account of sickness. Such trees, with bare branches, look like skeletons. At times, dying trees may have foliage that is scantier than a healthy tree of the same genre. At other times, such trees are known to have foliage on just a couple of branches or on a tiny area, with rest of the branches completely bare.
