Viagra cialis cheap for a copy of the 2012 Bill James Handbook check out ACTA Sports  

Viagra cialis cheap My must have book of the baseball off season is the Bill James Handbook (ACTA publishing) and this off season is no exception. Viagra cialis cheap 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.

Viagra cialis cheap 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. Viagra cialis cheap This year the voters are:

Viagra cialis cheap Bill James

Viagra cialis cheap Baseball Info Solutions (BIS) Video Scouts

Viagra cialis cheap Hal Richman creator of Strat-O-Matic  Baseball

Viagra cialis cheap Joe Posnanski

Viagra cialis cheap John Dewan

Viagra cialis cheap Peter Gammons

Viagra cialis cheap Doug Glanville

Viagra cialis cheap Rob Neyer

Viagra cialis cheap Todd Radcliffe Lead Video Scout for BIS

Viagra cialis cheap Tom Tango Fan Poll

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

Viagra cialis cheap At first base Daniel Murphy (yes Daniel Murphy) graded out at #10 with 18 total points.  Bill James voted Murph 5th, viagra cialis cheap BIS Video Scouts voted him 10th, viagra cialis cheap Joe Posnanski voted him 5th and John Dewan listed him 6th on his ballot. Viagra cialis cheap 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. Viagra cialis cheap 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. Viagra cialis cheap By the way Justin Turner grades out at a woeful -11 RS at 2nd base.

Viagra cialis cheap 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

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

Viagra cialis cheap 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. Viagra cialis cheap The Wreck of Miguel Tejada received votes from Glanville, viagra cialis cheap Posnanski and Dewan . Viagra cialis cheap MIGUEL TEJADA!!!!!! If that doesn’t motivate D-Wright to get his leather groove on, viagra cialis cheap I don’t know what would?

Viagra cialis cheap 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

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

Viagra cialis cheap 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.

Viagra cialis cheap 24 catchers received Fielding Bible Award votes, viagra cialis cheap none were named Josh Thole. Viagra cialis cheap 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.

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

Viagra cialis cheap 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.
