Problems with viagra for a copy of the 2012 Bill James Handbook check out ACTA Sports  

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

Problems with 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. Problems with viagra This year the voters are:

Problems with viagra Bill James

Problems with viagra Baseball Info Solutions (BIS) Video Scouts

Problems with viagra Hal Richman creator of Strat-O-Matic  Baseball

Problems with viagra Joe Posnanski

Problems with viagra John Dewan

Problems with viagra Peter Gammons

Problems with viagra Doug Glanville

Problems with viagra Rob Neyer

Problems with viagra Todd Radcliffe Lead Video Scout for BIS

Problems with viagra Tom Tango Fan Poll

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

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

Problems with 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

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

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

Problems with 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

Problems with viagra In the section dealing with centerfielder’s I’ve stared at the page for hours, problems with viagra held it up to the light then to a mirror and still not a sign of Angel Pagan, problems with viagra in fact if the Handbook was released on vinyl and you played it backwards you would hear Pagan is dead. Problems with 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, problems with viagra I’d settle for Coco Crsip.

Problems with 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.

Problems with viagra 24 catchers received Fielding Bible Award votes, problems with viagra none were named Josh Thole. Problems with 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.

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

Problems with 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.
