Pitchers, Pitch Counts And The Manager

An article by posted on July 2, 2010 0 Comments

Watching Sandy Koufax pitch was the beginning of my love affair with pitchers. They are special athletes who are more than just that – they are thinkers and planners as well. They are the linchpins of the field – the game is theirs and the wins and losses go on their personal records – forever. […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 12)

An article by posted on June 30, 2010 0 Comments

It’s so interesting to think about the idea that a Mets team who lost 90 games last year is now in contention for a playoff spot without their All-star caliber CF.

I have a feeling that I would really enjoy having a philosophical conversation about life with Jerry Manuel. A conversation about baseball strategy? Not so much.

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it […]

In Doug’s Dugout today we broach the following:  A scout’s opinion on Ike, Stephen Strasburg, and other random mindless thoughts:   When Ike Davis was drafted off the campus of Arizona State, a scout described him as having, “light-tower power.”  In the minors his first year he had an outage, but as he has matured and […]
