Buy cheap online viagra viagra for a copy of the 2012 Bill James Handbook check out ACTA Sports  

Buy cheap online viagra viagra My must have book of the baseball off season is the Bill James Handbook (ACTA publishing) and this off season is no exception. Buy cheap online viagra viagra I just got my hands on the 2012 edition of the Handbook and as usual it is filled with stats and essay’s that help any baseball fan make informed thoughts when looking at your teams needs for the coming season.

Buy cheap online viagra viagra One of my favorite features in the Handbook is The Fielding Bible Awards.  John Dewan puts this section together and enlists some of the great baseball minds to vote on the awards. Buy cheap online viagra viagra This year the voters are:

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Bill James

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Baseball Info Solutions (BIS) Video Scouts

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Hal Richman creator of Strat-O-Matic  Baseball

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Joe Posnanski

Buy cheap online viagra viagra John Dewan

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Peter Gammons

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Doug Glanville

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Rob Neyer

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Todd Radcliffe Lead Video Scout for BIS

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Tom Tango Fan Poll

Buy cheap online viagra viagra These ten voters rank players at all nine positions using a 1-10 voting system, buy cheap online viagra viagra the votes are tallied and the top 10 players are listed. Buy cheap online viagra viagra For our purposes let’s look at how the Mets defenders faired

Buy cheap online viagra viagra At first base Daniel Murphy (yes Daniel Murphy) graded out at #10 with 18 total points.  Bill James voted Murph 5th, buy cheap online viagra viagra BIS Video Scouts voted him 10th, buy cheap online viagra viagra Joe Posnanski voted him 5th and John Dewan listed him 6th on his ballot. Buy cheap online viagra viagra This is why I won’t be shocked when Murphy is dealt this winter  to play 1st or even 3rd base where he grades out positive as well in exchange for one of the many needs the Mets have this off season. Buy cheap online viagra viagra It’s at 2nd base where Murphy is a -2 in the Runs Saved (RS) category and why the Mets need to think of defense first at second. Buy cheap online viagra viagra By the way Justin Turner grades out at a woeful -11 RS at 2nd base.

Buy cheap online viagra viagra So you can see neither Murph nor Ginger Turner rated in the top 10 (Ruben Tejeda by the way was a +1 in RS at 2nd base) my favorite non-Mets player Dustin Pedroia finished #1 with 97 pts

Buy cheap online viagra viagra A big surprise was at shortstop where Mets icon, buy cheap online viagra viagra Jose Reyes didn’t come close to a top ten finish with a lowly 6 pts to his name.

Buy cheap online viagra viagra I don’t know if this is a surprise or not (I’ll leave it up to you) but at 3rd base David Wright did not garner a single vote. Buy cheap online viagra viagra The Wreck of Miguel Tejada received votes from Glanville, buy cheap online viagra viagra Posnanski and Dewan . Buy cheap online viagra viagra MIGUEL TEJADA!!!!!! If that doesn’t motivate D-Wright to get his leather groove on, buy cheap online viagra viagra I don’t know what would?

Buy cheap online viagra viagra Jason Bay finished out of the money in 15th but at least he was ahead of the 500 lb left fielder a/k/a Carlos Lee

Buy cheap online viagra viagra In the section dealing with centerfielder’s I’ve stared at the page for hours, buy cheap online viagra viagra held it up to the light then to a mirror and still not a sign of Angel Pagan, buy cheap online viagra viagra in fact if the Handbook was released on vinyl and you played it backwards you would hear Pagan is dead. Buy cheap online viagra viagra Could Sandy Alderson give us a shiny new centerfielder for Christmas?  Can he find a way to get Peter Bourjos or Adam Jones ? Hell, buy cheap online viagra viagra I’d settle for Coco Crsip.

Buy cheap online viagra viagra In the right field category there isn’t a Mets representative and I have a strong feeling there won’t be one in the 2013 Handbook either.

Buy cheap online viagra viagra 24 catchers received Fielding Bible Award votes, buy cheap online viagra viagra none were named Josh Thole. Buy cheap online viagra viagra Kelly Shoppach received 12 votes and would a perfect tag team partner for Thole who in all fairness is still learning the tools of ignorance trade on the Major League Level.

Buy cheap online viagra viagra The highest rated Mets defender is none other than Robert Allen Dickey, buy cheap online viagra viagra R.A. Buy cheap online viagra viagra to you and me. Buy cheap online viagra viagra  I wonder if Dickster can play 2nd base or centerfield on his four days off?

Buy cheap online viagra viagra That’s just some of the great features in the 2012 Bill James Handbook and it’s also a very useful reference as we play amateur GM of the Mets this off season.
