Woman and cialis for a copy of the 2012 Bill James Handbook check out ACTA Sports  

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

Woman and cialis 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. Woman and cialis This year the voters are:

Woman and cialis Bill James

Woman and cialis Baseball Info Solutions (BIS) Video Scouts

Woman and cialis Hal Richman creator of Strat-O-Matic  Baseball

Woman and cialis Joe Posnanski

Woman and cialis John Dewan

Woman and cialis Peter Gammons

Woman and cialis Doug Glanville

Woman and cialis Rob Neyer

Woman and cialis Todd Radcliffe Lead Video Scout for BIS

Woman and cialis Tom Tango Fan Poll

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

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

Woman and cialis 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

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

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

Woman and cialis 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

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

Woman and cialis 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.

Woman and cialis 24 catchers received Fielding Bible Award votes, woman and cialis none were named Josh Thole. Woman and cialis 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.

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

Woman and cialis 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.
