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

Cheap viagra online My must have book of the baseball off season is the Bill James Handbook (ACTA publishing) and this off season is no exception. Cheap viagra online 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.

Cheap viagra online 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. Cheap viagra online This year the voters are:

Cheap viagra online Bill James

Cheap viagra online Baseball Info Solutions (BIS) Video Scouts

Cheap viagra online Hal Richman creator of Strat-O-Matic  Baseball

Cheap viagra online Joe Posnanski

Cheap viagra online John Dewan

Cheap viagra online Peter Gammons

Cheap viagra online Doug Glanville

Cheap viagra online Rob Neyer

Cheap viagra online Todd Radcliffe Lead Video Scout for BIS

Cheap viagra online Tom Tango Fan Poll

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

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

Cheap viagra online 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

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

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

Cheap viagra online 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

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

Cheap viagra online 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.

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

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

Cheap viagra online 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.
