If any of you have the utter joy living in the Northeast I’m sure you’re well aware that this has been one of the roughest winters in a long time if ever. Six snowstorms including a major blizzard and we haven’t even made it into February yet. The moment I walked into my local A&P it was as if I had stepped into an 80′s disaster flick. I swore I saw someone who looked like […]
Have you ever read or heard something that was so out of left field that it made you pause and do a double take? When I read Wallace Matthews’ article on the Yankees signing of Rafael Soriano, I all but mimicked my 4 month old daughter, spitting my morning oatmeal practically through my nose. It seems our step brothers over at Evil Empire Inc., who were spurned by Cliff Lee and Carl Crawford this winter, have […]
As all of us grow older, the players we grew up enjoying, emulating and idolizing, have since retired leaving us nostalgic for days gone by. I remember the first time I read the back of a baseball card and found a player born the year I entered high school. Age had finally caught up to me. Sure I wasn’t ready for shuffle board at The Villages or for dinner at 3, nonetheless it hit me. […]
Hall of Famer, former Cleveland Indian, Bob Feller passed away this evening from an acute form of Leukemia at the age of 92. “Rapid Robert” won 266 games in 18 seasons all with the Indians, was once “clocked” at 104 mph. At the time, it was difficult to gauge how fast pitchers threw since Radar guns had yet to be invented. I remember seeing video of Feller in his prime throwing a fastball with a […]
I was contemplating whether or not to write this and perhaps allow our collective wounds time to heal regarding Cliff Lee’s decision to rejoin the Phillies. First off I’ll be up front and tell you that at many points this past season, I was clamoring for the Mets to land Lee. I knew it would be all but impossible but call me crazy; I wanted to test my own ability to believe. I didn’t favor […]
Openness, honesty and transparency. Virtues that tend to unfortunately fall on deaf ears in the many parts of the business world let alone professional sports. With the new administration gradually taking root in Flushing, times, like the saying goes, “they are a changin” and the man ushering in this change believes deeply in these virtues. This former Marine doesn’t just talk the talk. Sandy Alderson is a true believer and wants to make all New […]
The purpose of Sabermetrics, in a nut shell, lay in its constant pursuit of finding the value of player’s most minute components. It’s a pure almost sanitized view of a player’s performance however like it is even admitted to in the book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, in human behavior there was always uncertainty and risk. No matter how accurately you valued past performance, it was still an uncertain guide to future […]
Does it seem to you, as it does to me that in many respects the job Sandy Alderson has is about as contentious and uphill as Chris Christie – Governor of New Jersey? No matter your political persuasion – if you have one at all – one has to admit that both men have more than their hands full over the next few years. Don’t get me wrong I’m not comparing the intricacies and obvious […]
I have to admit I didn’t really want to write this. Don’t get me wrong I appreciate every opportunity I’m given to write for MMO. I just tend to find it difficult to write about, well, nothing; or at least rehash what the general consensus is. Ok, that’s probably a bit harsh not to mention encroaching on mamby pamby land – especially considering the positive events of the last few days – but I’ve had […]
