I'm not at all concerned about the O's play of late because we need our stars. I don't want to risk Markakis missing another playoffs. He's worked too *** hard to get there. I would rather face the Detroit Tigers as they having a 2nd half to forget. Their ERA is going up and their batting average as a team is just falling hard. D.A. said it best this morning: "It's going to be the most refreshing and fun playoffs."
mentioning Heyward and not Chris Johnson invalidates everything. Look at the empty batting average and terrible defense from CJ

Why do guys like the term batting above my average...even if you may be appreciating her beauty...she now thinks she's setters
Pete Rose played for 24 seasons and had a lifetime batting average of .303 ~ very very hard to maintain such a high average in a career that long.

This Hall of Famer had 1 AB in the Major Leagues. Struck Out and finished with a lifetime batting average of .000. He also made one error in two fielding chances for a lifetime fielding average of .500. Who is this Hall of Famer?
In the world of fantasy baseball, I would like to point out that Seth Smith of the Padres - who I picked up mid-season as an undrafted free agent in our 14-team dynasty league - had a better batting average, far better OBP, better slugging percentage, more homers, and more RBIs than Josh Hamilton, who I'm paying 1/8th of my salary cap to at $33 million dollars. Granted, Josh played fewer games due to injuries, but when he was healthy, he was way below his career averages. Probably a big reason I finished 10th out of 14 this year, after many years finishing in the top 5 in the league.

  Baseball is frivelous.   it is inherent and intrinsic in its frivolity. it is an escape and a respite from the real world, and in that way it is beautiful, as nothing else is. Men are boys and summers are forever in the context of this game. all is youthful fantasy.   however, 67 years ago today, baseball for the first time became important to the soul of the country inwhich it was created.    Jackie Roosevelt Robinson was more than a good player, but before i speak of his value as a man and a historical figure, let's get this out of the way: Robinson's career statistics speak for themselves. .331 Batting Average, 1,500 hits, 137 home runs, 734 runs batted in, 197 stolen bases, more of those steals were at home plate than seems even possible. he played in 6 World Series in just 10 years. Robinson was so good that his value as a player transcends his era. he could scare the living *** out of a pitcher and snag extra bases from under a pitcher's nose. in a spring training game during his first year . ...

Clear Springs gives away 6-5 game to Brazoswood Clear Springs saw victory slip away on Thursday when a five-run sixth inning lead disappeared after a furious charge from Brazoswood, who ended up with a 6-5 win at Clear Springs. Blake Chisolm boosted his batting average thanks to a perfect 3-3 day at the plate to pace Clear Springs - Varsity. He singled in the first inning and doubled in the fifth and seventh innings. Anthony Dahl got the win for Brazoswood. He tossed two innings of shutout ball. Anthony Dahl struck out one, walked three and gave up two hits. Itchy Burts ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss. He lasted just one inning, walked one, struck out none, and allowed one run. The bottom of the first saw Clear Springs take an early lead, 2-0. Clear caught fire after Jacob Vasquez doubled. Then Blake singled, bringing home Jacob Vasquez. More runs came home for Clear Springs when Chisolm scored on an RBI double by Tyrone Thomas. Clear Springs put one more run on ...

Interesting fact: MLB league-wide batting average was the lowest last year in 41 years, and has dropped 7 consecutive years. Percentage of strikeouts has increased each of the last 8 years as well. I'd say a) MLB's quest to rid it's league of PEDs is working and b) ballplayers had better figure out how to play and not rely on home runs anymore. P.S. - Recent study shows soccer just as popular with kids as baseball. You're about to move to 4th place, MLB. You'd better figure it out fast.

It's nostalgic to see a Cubs team straight for the 1970's return for spring training. With a league low .225 batting average and after being shut out 13-0, the manager says, "We didn't score a lot of runs, but we did squared up some balls." Real quote. Zero is not a lot of runs to be sure. "Rudy did a nice job of leaning into a few pitches, and Engelberg has been doing a fine job helping me clean pools down here in Arizona." Fake quote in the styling of Morris Buttermaker.

Hi gang. I am forever complaining about "computer people" using terms that they believe are so commonplace that everyone knows what they mean but, of course, there are people like me that have no idea what they are talking about. This is not a big deal if they are speaking in a room where you can stop them and ask a question but when the words are used in a writing, such as in written directions, then there is a problem. Written directions do not respond to my oral questions. I know this because I have asked the "written directions" for clarification many times and have gotten no response. Thus, the pile of parts in my driveway or living room and no finished product. So, what is the point of this"mini rant" you ask? The point is that you would think that I would be more sensitive to using term(s) in sports that I assume are so commonplace that most everyone know(s) what they mean. Having the shoe on the other foot, so to speak. This insensitivity came to my attention the other day during a Hall O ...
I have more good news to share. Ashley Stassin will be coming to Thomasville to give pitching lessons. Ashley is a freshman at the University of West Alabama. She played her travel ball with the California Thunder. Spent the 2013 season at Middle Tennessee. Split time between pitcher, first base and designated player in 30 games. Slugged .302 on the season while hitting .209 for the Blue Raiders. In High School, she allowed just seven walks and only one home run senior year. Held opponents to just a .258 batting average while putting together a 2.62 ERA. Defensive Player of the Year in 2012. First Team All-CIF 2012. First Team All-League 2010 and 2012. We are looking at two dates for Ashley’s first trip to Thomasville. Tuesday, March 18th after school and Saturday March 22. If you are interested in scheduling a lesson, you can message me. After Ashley’s initial visit to Thomasville, you can schedule future lessons in Thomasville or Livingston.

Softball Hitting Tips Spend twice as much time on your hitting as you do on your defense. Hitting is a tough skill to learn, refine and master. It takes a lot of time to become a highly skilled hitter and ultimately, team selections are often made based on who can contribute offensively. Select the heaviest bat you can swing without losing bat speed or developing faulty mechanics. This will give you maximum power. Hold the bat with your fingers. You have considerably more strength and control with your fingers rather than your palms. Adjust your placement in the box according to the type of pitcher you are facing. For example, move up in the box when facing dropball pitchers and move back in the box when facing riseball pitchers. Don’t change your swing right before the season or during the season.

Tunes and Tudes Spur Skipstone to Victory After dropping yesterdays road game to Harvester Christian 12-2, the Warriors of Skipstone Christian Academy rebounded tonight with a decisive 12-1 victory of their own over region foe Alpha Omega of Covington. Some drama found its way into this one at, yes, both the beginning and the ending of the contest. But in the end, the Warriors walked away with class and dignity as well as the win, and now also, a 3-1-1 record heading into the middle of March. The Warriors came into this game with a Mendoza-like batting average of just .206. In desperation and looking to latch onto some form of motivation, Coach Tim employed the sound of music. Hitters were escorted to the plate for the first time this year with their own walk-up songs, and more music sang out during timeouts and between innings. The players responded with 12 runs on 12 hits in 29 official at-bats, a .413 mark. Senior Alex Snider worked through some first inning inconsistencies to earn the Win, hi ...
This date in White Sox history- March 13, 2000- Sox slugger Frank Thomas is again featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. A lengthy story talks about his career, the controversies and his desire to return to the top of the game. The caption reads, "Don’t Question My Desire. Frank Thomas Comes Out Swinging." Thomas would have a spectacular season, 43 home runs, 143 RBI's and a .328 batting average, yet he'd lose out on his 3rd MVP Award to the A’s Jason Giambi, who’d later admit to using steroids in grand jury testimony.
Will the "Thrill" turns 50. A player determined to win!! William Nuschler "Will" Clark, Jr. (born March 13, 1964) is a former first baseman in Major League Baseball best known for his years with the San Francisco Giants from 1986 to 1993. Will was known by the nickname of "Will the Thrill." One story states that he earned the nicknames by his classmates at Jesuit High School in New Orleans, where he played both varsity baseball and varsity basketball. The more common story states that former teammate Bob Brenly gave Clark the moniker after Clark reportedly stated, "I'm just thrilled to be here," when asked about his recent call-up to the big leagues. The nickname has often been truncated to simply, "The Thrill." Another more generic nickname shared by Will, as well as other players past and present, is "The Natural" because of his natural gifts as a baseball player. Ken Griffey Jr., Jeff Francoeur, Rick Ankiel, and most recently, Josh Hamilton have also donned the nickname. Clark was inducted into the Col ...

Isaiah 1:10-14 (10) Hear the word of the LORD, You rulers of Sodom; Give ear to the law of our God, You people of Gomorrah: (11) "To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me?"

(12) "When you come to appear before Me, Who has required this from your hand, To trample My courts? (13) Bring no more futile sacrifices; Incense is an abomination to Me. The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and the calling of assemblies— I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting. (14) Your New Moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; They are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them. Amos 5:21-22 (21) " I hate, I despise your feast days, And I do not savor your sacred assemblies.

Alabama is playing their best baseball of the season as they open their SEC schedule on Friday, welcoming 20th ranked Kentucky (13-4) to Sewell-Thomas Stadium for 3 game weekend series. The Wildcats are coming off a 7-2 loss at Indiana on Tuesday. A game against Northern Kentucky, scheduled for last night was postponed due to wet field conditions. The UK moniker "Bat Cats" couldn't be more accurate this year as they enter play this week as the top offensive team in the NCAA. When this week's statistics were released on Monday, Kentucky led the nation in batting average, hits, runs scored, on base pct, & doubles, while also being among the leaders in home runs & walks. Jr A.J. Reed leads the NCAA in home runs with 8 & RBIs at 28.

Comfort is comfortable. But it’s not the route to success. Get out of your comfort zone. Move toward challenges, not away from them. And ask for more, even if it means getting turned down more. Remember that it’s not the batting average that counts, it’s the number of hits.

Spring Training baseball: Salvador Perez, Mike Moustakas, Yordano Ventura shine in Royals win over A's PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) — Yordano Ventura struck out six in 4 1/3 innings and Salvador Perez hit a two-run home run, leading the Kansas City Royals to a 3-1 win over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday. "I like his composure. I like the way that game doesn't speed up on him for a young player," Royals manager Ned Yost said of the 22-year-old Ventura. "He always seems to be in control of his emotions on the mound." Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas continued his torrid spring, going 3 for 3 with a solo homer, double and single to raise his batting average to .500 in 11 games. Moustakas has four home runs and 13 RBIs. Moustakas got two of his hits with two strikes. "His whole focus this spring has primarily been with two strikes," Yost said. "In the cage and the drills that they do, it's on two-strike approach." Ventura allowed a run on two hits, leaving after giving up a single to Oakland's Derek Norris. " ...

*SHOCKING NEWS* - "According to Diamond Hoggers, the Detroit Tigers unloaded Fielder and consequently Avasail Garcia, because the five-time All-Star’s wife was allegedly sleeping with Garcia behind Prince Fielders back. As you can imagine, this caused an altercation. One which involved Prince Fielder, Avasail Garcia, and Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera was nursing a sore groin and re-injured it while attempting to hold back Prince Fielder from pounding Garcia’s face into the ground. Miguel was of course sticking up for Fielder, who had the right to be angry. Could Prince Fielder’s wife have been behind all of this? 2014-01-10_0124The team quickly traded Garcia in order to cut cancer off before it spreads. They traded Garcia to the White Sox in a deal that came out of nowhere… unless you know the entire picture.

[News release from Whitecaps baseball. The Detroit Tigers today announced that former Whitecaps’ catcher Andrew Graham has been promoted from Short-Season Connecticut to manage the West Michigan Whitecaps in 2014. He is the first former Whitecaps’ player to become the Whitecaps’ manager. Graham replaces Larry Parrish, who spent one year at the helm of the Whitecaps and will move to Class AAA Toledo, where he spent eight seasons managing during the last two decades, for 2014. A native of Sydney, Australia, Graham was drafted by the Tigers in 2003 as a catcher. He played in 26 games for the Whitecaps in 2004 (.253 batting average) and 32 games in 2005 (.190 batting average) before advancing to Class A-Advanced Lakeland, Class AA Erie and finally Class AAA Toledo in 2007. In 2009 and 2010, Graham served as a coach for the rookie Gulf Coast League Tigers. In 2011, at the age of 29, he earned his first managerial assignment with the short-season Class A Connecticut Tigers. He spent three years there, com ...
Miguel Cabrera was one of only three "triple milestone" major leaguers last season: a .300 batting average, 30 home runs and 100 RBI.

Prince Fielder, who joined Cabrera in the triple-milestone group in 2012, fell short in the BA and HR departments in 2013.

Opening the vault. Happy birthday to 1982 Expos Dan Norman. Born Jan 11, 1955. Norman spent the latter part of the 1981 season playing for the Montreal Expos AAA affiliate, the Denver Bears of the American Association. He played in 73 games for Denver with 11 home runs, a batting average of .272, an on-base percentage of .348 and a slugging percentage of .490. In 1982 Norman split his time between the Expos Major League team and their new AAA affiliate, the Wichita Aeros. He played in 53 games for the Expos, getting 66 at-bats. With a batting average of just .212, that was Norman's last season in the Major Leagues. He continued to bounce around the minor leagues through the 1987 season, ending his professional career at age 32.

New Hampshire Bobcats Baseball: Batting average can be evil
If you had a 70% failure rate in talking with prospects that would convert, what would you outlook be on your business? If you were a baseball player, you could be in the Hall of Fame. Ask Frank Thomas whose batting average was .301 over his career. It's not always about the ones you lose, sometimes it more about the number of people you speak with.
Craig Biggio and Rafael Palmeiro are the seventh and eighth members of the 3,000-hit club to not reach the Hall of Fame on the first ballot. The others, you ask? Tris Speaker, Eddie Collins, Nap Lajoie, Paul Waner, Cap Anson and Roberto Clemente (Pete Rose does not count here because he has never appeared on the HOF ballot). Speaker, Collins and Lajoie could be excused. They were all elected in the first four years the Hall opened and they were competing with players like Babe Ruth and Cy Young. Anson played so early in baseball's history the veteran's committee had to elect him. Clemente was elected the year after he died in 1973, as the Hall waived the five-year voting period. That leaves Waner, whom the Sporting News named as one of baseball's Top 100 players of all-time in 1999. His numbers feel better than Biggio's but not appreciably better, except for his .333 batting average. None of the players listed above had to wait more than four years after their eligibility began to get in. So Biggio's day ...
Here's a little more Big Hurt perspective. Of the top 20 home run producers of all time only five had a higher batting average than Thomas and his .301 career avg. They are Ted Williams .344 , Babe Ruth .342 , Manny Ramirez .312 , Hank Aaron .305 , and Willie Mays .302. That is lofty company to be in. The difference between him, Aaron and Mays is very small.Only Ted Williams and Babe Ruth stand out from him as power hitters who could also hit for avg. There are others who hit for power and avg. but I am only talking about the top twenty. Besides finishing 18th all time in HR he was 22nd in RBI's, and 10th in walks. I would also put an asterisk next to Ramirez who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. In an almost identical amount of at-bats(8200) Ramirez struck out 1813 times and walked 1329. Thomas on the other hand walked 1667 times and only struck out 1397 times. For all you Cub loving Sosa people here's one.Sosa had 8813 at-bats and STRUCK OUT 2306 times. He is third on the all time list! I ...
Frank Thomas was voted into the MLB Hall of Fame today. He is 1 of only 4 MLB players to have at least a .300 batting average, 500 home runs, 1,500 RBI, 1,000 runs and 1,500 walks in a career. The other 3 are Mel Ott, Babe Ruth & Ted Williams. In the midst of the steroid era, he was one of the few sluggers who did it the right way. He spoke out against steroid use long before testing came about. From an interview in 2002 - "I think they should test everybody, and that would be it. Draw the blood. I hate this because I know what it takes to get to this level, all the hard work.'' Critics think he was too stats driven. He was. He felt the burden of carrying his team on his back and often succeeded. In return, his team carried him through an injury filled 2005 to give the Sox their 1st World Series Championship in 88 years. I couldn’t be more proud to be a fan of The Big Hurt. It has been my dream to someday visit the Hall of Fame and I will be there with my oldest brother, Larry and longtime friend, Lance ...
The Hall of Fame today botched another one. My favorite player aside, how is Craig Biggio not a HOFer. He is the only eligible player in history with 3000 hits that's not in. I thought about comparing him to other great second basemen. Joe Morgan for example, a first ballot HOFer. Biggio has more career hits, runs, doubles, HOMERUNS, RBI's, a higher batting average and despite playing more games than the aforementioned Morgan, did it in less seasons. Joe Gordon got in a couple of years ago and despite only playing 11 years had a .268 batting average and no where near the career numbers of Biggio. Ryne Sandberg, 1st ballot. One more HR than Biggio, but every other number across the board belongs to Biggio in a landslide. The three previous did win a league MVP but 7 won't get you in. Not even going to bother with Mazerowski and his .260 batting average and lower fielding percentage than Biggio. One homerun gets you in! I vote for Tito Landrum. Or closer to home, Scott F..ing Spezio in 14! Joh ...
Bill James on Biggio. Admittedly this was in 2001 before James professed to growing tired of Biggio: "Anyway, Biggio has the best “little stats” of any player in baseball history, this being one of the reasons that he has been tremendously underrated. If you compare him to, let’s say, Jim Rice in 1984, Biggio has a hidden advantage of 69 extra times on base, since he was hit by pitches 33 more times (34 to 1) and beat the throw to first on a double play attempt 36 more times (0 to 36). Those little stats that get left out of USA Today, in this comparison, have an impact roughly equivalent to 100 points of batting average."

TOP 2013 STARTERS: ZAC WESTCOTT, COVINGTON Continuing to count down an amazing group of starting pitchers, today we have Covington's Zac Westcott. Westcott, a senior at Nova Southeastern, had a super summer for the Lumberjacks. He went 6-3, 1.93 in 14 games (9 starts). His WHIP was 1.072, opponent's batting average was .233, and he added a tiny 1.5 BB/9, and 5.4 K/9 in 65 1/3 innings pitched. As a freshman at Southeastern in 2011, Zac pitched only 6 2/3 innings, but he exploded in his sophomore season. Get a load of this: he went 9-2, 2.27, with only 17 walks in 91 innings pitched. His awards: 1st Team All Sunshine State Conference, 2nd Team ABCA/Rawlings All-South Region, and 2nd Team Daktronics All-South Region. As a junior in 2013, he went 3-4, 4.42, with 14 walks and 36 K's in 55 innings. Congratulations on your excellent summer, Zac, and good luck this spring!
Folks who are on my friends list and others know what this and the OM says a hearty hello to you all. If you know others that used to comment on the old CCR FB page, send this to them. I'm trying to encourage him to reappear on FB. Any comments you make about the CCR/OM I will pass on via e-mail. Some folks have asked about the OM. Do what you want with this. Today, early, OM met a fellow who OM had not seen since we were both 12 years old. Many years ago! We were both on the same championship baseball team. We were able to talk for some time. He was a great shortstop. But he shared something with OM that was almost forgotten: "I remember a particular baseball game. I never thanked you for for leadership. I do so now. The score was tied. It was the 8th inning. They were a great team. We loaded the bases with two outs. As the catcher and captain of the team, you called for a squeeze play as you came to the plate.

TOP 2013 STARTERS: COREY ARMENTROUT, WAYNESBORO Our starter, a 5-11 lefty from Bridgewater, had an excellent regular season for the Generals, but his postseason was the stuff of legend. Seriously, we may be talking about Corey's postseason for years to come. First of all, his regular season. Corey went 4-2, 2.20 in 9 games (8 starts). He had a .229 batting average against, 1.156 WHIP, 2.8 BB/9, and 8.8 K/9 in 45 innings pitched. He struck out 44 batters in 45 innings. And then came the postseason. Corey started three games, going 2-0, 0.45, while allowing 16 hits and 7 walks in 19 2/3 innings- while striking out 23. The most astonishing piece, though, is that Corey started the final game on only 2 days rest, and earned the win after pitching five innings. Deservedly, he was named the MVP of the postseason. Often, the Valley League is a place where pitchers can get some well-needed innings, but Corey is not in that category. At Bridgewater as a freshman in 2012, he threw 62 1/3 innings, and went 4-4, 2.02. ...

William J. "Kid" Gleason (October 26, 1866 – January 2, 1933) was an American professional athlete and Major League Baseball player and manager. Gleason managed the Chicago White Sox from 1919 through 1923. His first season as a major league manager was notable for his team's appearance in the World Series and the ensuing Black Sox Scandal, but Gleason was not involved in the scandal. After leaving the White Sox, Gleason was on the coaching staff for the Philadelphia Athletics until 1931. Gleason was born in Camden, New Jersey. He acquired the nickname "Kid" early in life, not only because of his short stature (growing to only 5-foot-7, 155 pounds) but also because of his energetic, youthful nature.Gleason played two seasons in the minor leagues of northern Pennsylvania. In 1886 at Williamsport of the Pennsylvania State League, he batted .355 and stole 20 bases in 36 games. Gleason debuted as a pitcher with the Philadelphia Phillies on April 20, 1888. He enjoyed several successful seasons, especially 18 ...
Today I would like to talk about INTEGRITY, and that's our main topic for the day from the Ifedet, Accra Ghana; an institute that propagate the teaching of ethics and financial education. We're known to assisting our clients, partners, subscribers and stakeholder discover their true potentials in life. I have come learn to my fullest understanding that keeping one’s integrity is one of the most critical challenges we all face. Life is full of temptations and distractions that can drive a wedge between our beliefs, words and acts. I’ve learned it’s a lot easier to talk about integrity than to live it. The true test of how I see integrity is my willingness to do the right thing even when it costs more than I want to pay. I have a decent batting average, but it’s way below an appreciable number of times. Among the seductions is the tendency to “do onto others as they have done onto you.” No matter how I behave, some people will be mean-spirited, dishonest, irresponsible and unkind, but if I fight ...

Happy Birth Day Kapil Dev Ramlal Nikhanj. Better known as Kapil Dev, nicknamed The Haryana Hurricane, captained the Indian cricket team which won the 1983 Cricket World Cup. Named by Wisden as the Indian Cricketer of the Century in 2002, Kapil Dev was also India's national cricket coach for 10 months between October 1999 and August 2000. Kapil was a right-arm pace bowler noted for his graceful action and potent out-swinger, and was India's main strike bowler for most of his career. He also developed a fine in-swinging Yorker during the 1980's, which he used very effectively against tail-enders. As a batsman, he was a natural striker of the ball who could hook and drive effectively. A naturally aggressive player, he often helped India in difficult situations by taking the attack to the opposition. He retired in 1994, holding the world record for the most number of wickets taken in Test cricket, a record subsequently broken. At the time, he was also India's highest wicket taker in both major forms of crick ...

I had previously counted up 4 tests worth of marks out of 10, so I am now adding my marks out of 10 for the 5th test to the combined total.   42.5 - Mitchell Johnson (Aus) - Comfortably the man of the series, he had man of the match awards in the 1st, 2nd and 4th tests, and was probably about 5th best in the 3rd test, and around 6th or 7th best in the 5th and final test. His best test was the 1st test, where he took 4/61 and 5/42 (9/103 total for the match) as well as scoring 64 and 39 not out for the best match of his entire career. The 2nd test wasn't far behind as he managed an amazing 7/40 on the flat Adelaide oval, and, while he didn't do much else all test, that burst won Australia the match - and how. In Perth he wasn't quite as good with just 6 wickets, and in the 5th test he only managed 6 wickets too, but overall he took 37 wickets for the series, miles and miles ahead of the others. His scores, test by test, were 10, 8.5, 7.5, 9.5, 7. Simply an amazing effort. One of the best series by any pla ...
