Baseball Winter Meetings

EDITOR’S NOTE: Maury Brown will be reporting this week from the Baseball Winter Meetings in Orlando


According to Jon Heyman of SI.com (via Twitter), the yet to be announced extension for Adrian Gonzalez with the Boston Red Sox will be 8-years, $161 million. The amount will put his average annual value for the contract at $20.125 million, or the 10 highest ever by AAV just ahead of Manny Ramirez 8-year, $160 million deal that ran from 2001-08 (AAV $20 million).

In terms of first baseman, the Gonzalez deal is close to the AAV in the 8-year, $180 million Mark Teixeira landed with the Yankees in 2009. For Tex, his AAV is currently $22.5 million or 8th highest ever.

Pat Gillick Elected to Hall of Fame, Marvin Miller Snubbed PDF Print E-mail

Pat Gillick

Pat Gillick, the longtime executive for the Astros, Blue Jays, Mariners, and Phillies has been elected by a special Veterans Committee for the “Expansion Era” from 1973-present for managers, umpires and executives to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Gillick becomes the 32nd executive to be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame and just the fourth individual elected whose career has been defined nearly exclusively as a team architect, joining Ed Barrow, Branch Rickey and George Weiss in Cooperstown

While Gillick made the HOF, Marvin Miller, the former Executive Director of the MLBPA, yet again, missed the cut, this time, by a single vote or 68.75 percent of the vote. Inclusion into the HOF requires a 75 percent vote by the committee.

At 93, chances are long that Miller will make the Hall unless it is posthumously. The next time voting for the Expansion Era will occur will be 2013.

The 16-member Expansion Era Committee was comprised of Hall of Fame members Johnny Bench, Whitey Herzog, Eddie Murray, Jim Palmer, Tony Perez, Frank Robinson, Ryne Sandberg and Ozzie Smith; major league executives Bill Giles (Phillies), David Glass (Royals), Andy MacPhail (Orioles) and Jerry Reinsdorf (White Sox); and veteran media members Bob Elliott (Toronto Sun), Tim Kurkjian (ESPN), Ross Newhan (retired, Los Angeles Times) and Tom Verducci (Sports Illustrated).

The Results of the Expansion Era Ballot (12 votes needed for election): Pat Gillick (13 votes, 81.25%); Marvin Miller (11 votes, 68.75%); Dave Concepcion (8 votes, 50%); Ted Simmons, Vida Blue, Steve Garvey, Ron Guidry, Tommy John, Billy Martin, Al Oliver, Rusty Staub and George Steinbrenner each received less than eight votes.

Annual Report Shows Decline in MLB Players Testing Positive for PEDs, Stimulants PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 3

Written by Maury Brown   
Wednesday, 01 December 2010 19:10

Drug TestAn annual report released as part of Major League Baseball’s drug program shows that of 3747 tests for performance-enhancing drugs and stimulants, a total of 17 tested positive, or less than 1 percent (0.45%) in 2010.

The report which covers the time from the beginning of the 2009-2010 Major League Baseball off-season to the end of the 2010 MLB post-season, had two PED positives with one for Clomiphene and the other for Oxandrolone. Edinson Volquez of the Reds and Ronny Paulino of the Marlins were the two players that were suspended last year as part of the MLB drug program. The report does not detail any player associated to any positive tests, and unlike the Minor League drug program, the substance that an MLB player is suspended for is not detailed; players are simply shown as testing positive for “PEDs”.

As part of MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, players that test positive a first time for stimulants are not suspended, nor are names released of those in violation of the program. A player that tests positive for stimulants a first time is simply subjected to follow-up testing. There were 15 such positives this year for Adderall (13), Clobenzorex (1), and Phentermine (1).

Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs), which allow a player to use banned substances based upon approved medical needs, totaled 115 in the report, down from 118 last year.

Below is a breakdown of TUEs over the time of the report released today:

Theraputic Use Exemptions (TUEs)
Exemption
#
Attention Deficit Disorder 105
Hypertension
2
Hypogonadism
1
Post-Concussion Syndrome
1
Narcolepsy
1
Total
110

The number of tests have increased in each of the years that MLB and the MLBPA have had the JDA and released had the Independent Program Administrator, Bryan W. Smith, M.D., Ph.D., file his report. In 2008 there were 3486 tests with 19 players having adverse analytical findings. Last year, there were 3722 tests with 13 adverse analytical findings.

"King" Felix Hernandez Wins 2010 AL Cy Young Award PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 8
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Thursday, 18 November 2010 15:27

Felix Hernandez Baseball writers ignored the fact that the Seattle Mariners posted 101 losses, and with it, abysmal run support, focused on his stellar performance outside his win-loss record, and gave “King” Felix Hernandez the AL Cy Young award for 2010.

Over 34 starts Hernandez posted a 13-12 record while have a league-leading 2.27 ERA. He was second in the league in strikeouts (232) just one behind the Angels Jered Weaver who had 233.

According to the BBWAA:

Hernandez, 24, was named first on 21 of the 28 ballots cast by two writers in each league city. He received two votes for second place, three for third, one for fourth and one for fifth for a total of 167 points. Voting is tabulated on a system rewarding seven points for first place, four for second, three for third, two for fourth and one for fifth. The BBWAA expanded the Cy Young Award ballot from three to five pitchers this year.

Hernandez, who was the runner-up last year, and Sabathia, the 2007 winner when he was with the Cleveland Indians, were the only pitchers named on every ballot.

Hernandez became the third AL pitcher and sixth overall to win a Cy Young Award the year after finishing second. Also accomplishing the feat in the AL were the Red Sox’ Roger Clemens in 1991 and Pedro Martinez in 1999 and in the NL the Dodgers’ Mike Marshall in 1974, the San Diego Padres’ Randy Jones in 1976 and the New York Mets’ Dwight Gooden in 1985.

The selection of Hernandez marks the second time in as many years that the writers have selected the AL Cy Young and ignored win-loss record. Last year, the Royals Zack Greinke posted the previous American League low victory count with a 16-8 record.

Wisely, the Mariners wrapped-up Hernandez to 5-year, $78 million contract last year, thus avoiding arbitration. He will earn $10 million this season and would have most likely earned more through the arbitration process. An awards provision in his contract will give the “King” an extra $200,000.

Tampa Bay Rays lefthander David Price (19-6, 2.72 ERA) got four first-place votes and totaled 111 points to finish second in the balloting. The other three first-place votes went to New York Yankees lefthander CC Sabathia (21-7, 3.18 ERA), who finished third with 102 points. Boston Red Sox lefthander Jon Lester (19-9, 3.25 ERA) placed fourth and Weaver (13-12, 3.01 ERA) fifth. In all, 12 pitches received votes.

For the Rays, their gamble of signing Price to a long-term MLB contract when drafted will pay a huge dividend in savings. The 6-year, $8.5 million deal reached in 2007 will have Price only earning $1 million for the upcoming season. He has the option at any point in the contract to file for salary arbitration, however he is not yet eligible. He is likely to be a Super Two next year.

Ron GardenhireRon Gardenhire of the Minnesota Twins and Bud Black of the San Diego Padres have been selected as Managers of the Year by the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA). For the National League, Black narrowly beat out Dusty Baker of the Reds while Gardenhire won the AL award after being runner-up in five previous elections.

Gardenhire, 53, was listed first on 16 of the 28 ballots cast by two writers from each league city, second on eight and third on four to score 108 points, based on the 5-3-1 tabulation system. He was the only manager named on every ballot.

Ron Washington, who led the Texas Rangers into the World Series for the first time in franchise history, was the runner-up in this year’s voting. He was first on 10 ballots and totaled 81 points. Balloting is conducted prior to post-season play.

The other first-place votes went to the Tampa Bay Rays’ Joe Maddon, the 2008 winner who placed third with 44 points, and the Toronto Blue Jays’ Cito Gaston, who retired at the end of the season.

Gardenhire became the second Minnesota manager honored, joining 1991 winner Tom Kelly.

Bud BlackFor Black, his win by just one ballot goes down as one of the closest in history.

Although Baker, a three-time winner, appeared on one more ballot than Black, 27-26, Black was listed first on 16 ballots to Baker’s 13 among the 32 submitted by two writers in each league city. Black was second on seven ballots and third on three to total 104 points. Baker received 12 votes for second and two for third to score 103 points. Voting is tabulated on a 5-3-1 basis.

Also receiving one first-place vote apiece were the San Francisco Giants’ Bruce Bochy, who finished third with 30 points; the Atlanta Braves’ Bobby Cox, who was fourth with 28 points; and the Philadelphia Phillies’ Charlie Manuel, who was fifth with 20 points. The Houston Astros’ Brad Mills got one second-place vote for three points.

According to the BBWAA, there has been one tie in Manager of the Year voting, in the American League in 1996 between the Texas Rangers’ Johnny Oates and the New York Yankees’ Joe Torre. That same year in the NL, Bochy, then the manager of the Padres, won in a close vote over the Montreal Expos’ Felipe Alou, 76-74. Black joins Bochy as the only San Diego winners.

Red SoxMajor League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig have named the Boston Red Sox as the inaugural recipients of the Commissioner’s Award for Philanthropic Excellence, which was created to recognize the charitable and philanthropic efforts of an MLB Club. The Red Sox will be acknowledged for their work with the “Red Sox Scholars” program, which is administered by the Red Sox Foundation and creates educational opportunities for inner-city youth. The Red Sox Foundation will receive a $10,000 grant from Major League Baseball for this recognition.

“I am enormously proud of the charitable efforts made by all 30 Clubs this season. Their contributions have made a significant impact in communities across the country,” said Commissioner Selig. “I congratulate the entire Boston Red Sox organization, and particularly the Red Sox Foundation, for their commitment to the future of hundreds of young people from the inner-cities of Boston.”

“When John Henry, Larry Lucchino and I joined our partners to become owners of the Boston Red Sox, we pledged to not only field a competitive team, but to harness the passion of Red Sox fans to create positive change in our community,” said Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner. “With the support of our players, sponsors and generous fans, the Red Sox Foundation has become a philanthropic force in our community. We are humbled to receive this award and accept it on behalf of Red Sox Nation.”
