    Cool! I haven’t skated on a lake since high school. We used to be able to see the lake from our living room window. Always tried to convince our mom that it was safe to skate when other people were skating, even of the flag wasn’t up.

    That argument never worked.

    Yeah, there were a few lakes in my town that weren’t checked by the parks and rec and my father was livid when I told him I was out there playing one day.

    I’ve ice skated a few times over the past few years but haven’t tried to play in at least a decade since I stopped playing organized hockey.

    WASHINGTON – A man was taken into custody and later hospitalized for a mental evaluation after he took off his clothes and began a jog a few blocks from the White House.

    The man was seen taking off his clothes Wednesday evening around 5 p.m. He left the clothes near the northeast corner of the Ellipse, the green space south of the White House.

    Without question the heavyweights are the best to watch. The little guys are very quick and precise but their punches don’t have much force so there are less knockouts.

    Unfortunately the heavyweight class hasn’t been entertaining in at least 10 years

    Ready for Revis vs. Butthead II?

    First, the offense was ‘vanilla’ (to which his QB disagreed) then Chad Johnson didn’t make an excuse, but if he did, he’d have said that the field in New Jersey was icy last Sunday night.

    Cincinnati wide receiver Chad Johnson on his matchup on Saturday against New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who shutout the Bengal wideout last Sunday night – “We have a beautiful, beautiful field here (in Cincinnati). There will be no ice. There will be no ice on our field. Not to use any excuses, but we will be able to have a great game.”

    Harris, the team’s leading tackler, was at his usual inside linebacker spot Thursday and wasn’t noticeably hobbled. He worked on his footwork at times and appeared as though he would be ready for the playoff game Saturday at Cincinnati.

    It wasn’t immediately known if Harris was a full participant in practice, or what his status would be listed as on the team’s injury report. Coach Rex Ryan will address the media after practice.

    Molina is getting a bad rap on the double play thing. He doesn’t hit into a lot DPs. At least not more than any other catcher. Russell Martin, who can actually run, hit into more DPs last year.

    Joe A, wish you were right, but he’s actually a league leading lardass at GIDP..to do it right, you have to normalize for opportunities..he’s top 10 worst (8th) from 06 to 08 (cant find 09 data)

    Here’s a list of the trailers, the guys who are grounding into more than their share of double plays (2006-2008):

    +—————–+——+——+——-+
    | name | Opps | GDP | DPA |
    +—————–+——+——+——-+
    | Tejada_Miguel | 438 | 82 | -31.5 |
    | Molina_Yadier | 247 | 53 | -24.6 |
    | Hudson_Orlando | 301 | 55 | -20.3 |
    | Konerko_Paul | 373 | 63 | -20.0 |
    | Castillo_Jose | 257 | 49 | -19.3 |
    | Berroa_Angel M. | 134 | 34 | -18.5 |
    | Martinez_Victor | 350 | 58 | -17.5 |
    | Molina_Ben | 292 | 51 | -17.4 |
    | Lo Duca_Paul | 222 | 43 | -17.3 |
    | Young_Mike | 432 | 67 | -17.2 |
    +—————–+——+——+——-+

    I guess there aren’t many surprises here: catchers, other slow guys, guys who don’t strike out or walk too much. Some are good hitters, but when you evaluate their worth, better take into account all these rally-killers they are hitting into. Which raises the question: how much are these double plays costing the team, anyway?

    The price you pay
    Let’s try to put a run value on the double play. Now, a generic out costs the team about .3 runs, more or less. So, we might estimate that a double play is worth, well, double that: minus .6 runs.

    The thing is, though, the double play seems more costly than just two outs, doesn’t it? It just seems to hurt more* than two generic outs. And you know what? The double play is more costly than two regular outs. That’s because it always happens with fewer than two outs and runners on base. These are often situations where the offense is expected to score multiple runs; the double play drastically reduces that run scoring potential.

    So, I went through the Retrosheet play-by-play data to figure out the run value of the GDP: I get -.85 runs, pretty much constant over the last 55 years or so. So, now we can attach a run value to these extra double plays (above or below average). We do that by taking the difference between the value of the double play (minus .85) and the generic out. In other words, how much did the double play cost relative to making a single out (e.g. striking out or popping out or grounding into a 6-4 forceout, but beating the throw to first).

    Now an average generic out is, as mentioned above, worth -.3 runs. But in a double-play situation, the generic out is somewhat more costly—it’s roughly -.38 runs. So the difference in value between hitting into a double play and making a generic out is -.5 runs*.

    Buzz: The Mets Plan for Pitching

    Quote:
    by MATTHEW CERRONE, MetsBlog

    Today, I talked to an agent, a person with another team, and someone connected to the Mets, and all three believe free-agent pitchers Joel Pineiro, Jon Garland, Jarrod Washburn and Doug Davis all might end up accepting a one– or two-year deal.

    From what I can gather, Garland would prefer to re-sign with the Dodgers, or a team out West, and Washburn is hoping to remain in Seattle, while the market for Davis has been limited at best.

    In Pineiro’s case, interested teams are concerned whether he can maintain last season’s success without Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan.

    From what I can tell, the Mets really like Pineiro, mostly because he throws strikes, avoids walks, and keeps the ball down, which they believe can continue without Duncan. However, they do not seem willing to give him more than a two-year contract, as I mentioned yesterday morning. In their view, he’s a No. 3 or 4 starter asking to be paid like a No. 2… of course, that didn’t seem to stop them from giving Oliver Perez a three-year deal.

    According to people connected to the team, the Mets also have interest in free-agent RHP John Smoltz, who could compete for the back-of-the-rotation, but also pitch from the team’s bullpen.

    I think the Mets have legit concerns about Francisco Rodriguez, and I would think a pitcher like Smoltz could not only pick up slack in the rotation, but he could also step in and finish games.

    Last off season, Smoltz signed a one-year, $5 million deal with Boston; after he rejected a one-year, $2 million deal from the Braves. The buzz around Smoltz suggests he is looking for something similar, i.e., one year and tons of incentives, with a few million guaranteed, but while staying in the National League, where he is open to pitching in relief.

    He didn’t pitch well in Boston, but people I talked with are convinced he was tipping his pitches, and then also struggled to adjust to the American League. He was released by the Red Sox in August, and then signed with the Cardinals, with whom he was 1–3 in seven starts with a 4.26 ERA.

    Though he missed a game or two last year with shoulder tendinitis, and will be be 43 years old through much of next season, Smoltz has been connected in rumor this off season to the Nationals, Phillies, Cardinals, Dodgers, Mariners, Rangers and Orioles.

    In the end, though I still think they’d prefer to trade for a starting pitcher, I believe the Mets might look to sign a guy like Smoltz, on a one-year deal to be insurance for the rotation and bullpen, while also trying to ink a pitcher like Pinerio to a two-year deal… I think this is still possible, but it’s going to mean playing the open market in a very strategic way.

    They’re not the defending champs. Nova won this year.

    He was never going to start, PC is in love with Matt Barkley.

    And he doesn’t have to sit out a year

    Right, that was last year. Shows you how much I pay attention to my alma mater.

    I’m so impressed that Cerrone managed to write a post without using any ellipses.

    Oh, never mind…

    …of course, that didn’t seem to stop them from giving Oliver Perez a three-year deal.

    … I think this is still possible, but it’s going to mean playing the open market in a very strategic way.

    I particularly didn’t, why do you think I immediately went back to NY after graduating?

    Richmond moved to the A-10 when I was in school in the late 90’s/early 00’s.

    I like the idea of signing Smoltz as a starter-reliever. Smoltz’s ERA was horrible last year, but his peripherals were a lot better.

    Matt Barkley is ridiculously over-rated. First guy PC has shown favoritism too at USC. It really bothers me.

    This should delight Dep/Ed in the event the Isles decide to tank it this year:

    That blueliner named Fowler is something special. He skates like Paul Coffee: Graceful, powerful strides and impeccable balance.

    The best is…carnal knowledge, of a pitcher, on the free agent market.

    He’s what you need to make the next step too. Puck rushing/powerplay quarterbacking defenseman.

    After they trade Rolo and then DiPi goes down with injury and they’re left with Biron, I’m sure they’ll be picking from a desirable spot in the draft.

    I disagree, they need a shutdown D type guy. Streit does well enough as a PP QB. But the Isles don’t really have anyone to match up against other team’s best players.

    Andy Sutton doesn’t count, remember how Dubi out muscled him for the puck that gained the Rangers possession for his eventual tying goal at the game you went to?

    Well anyway, that happens a lot to the Isles D.
