Click to read the Horowitz decision on Alex Rodriguez

The Biz of Baseball has been updated with a new document

With arbitrator Fredric Horowitz rendering a decision that Alex Rodriguez will receive a 162 game suspension that covers all of the 2014 regular season and postseason, MLB has doled out the largest suspension in the history of the game. Based upon the Joint Drug Agreement between MLB and the MLBPA, the actual decision is to remain confidential. However, Alex Rodriguez filed suit against MLB and the MLBPA to get the suspension overturned. As part of that lawsuit, the decision was attached.

Here is the Horowtiz decision, added to the Biz of Baseball document collection under “PEDs”

Umpires for 2013 LCS Announced by Major League Baseball PDF Print E-mail

2013 MLB Postseason logo

Major League Baseball today announced the umpires who have been assigned to the National League and American League Championship Series.  Thirty-year Major League Umpire Gerry Davis will serve as the crew chief for the NLCS between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals, while 36-year Major League Umpire Joe West will lead the crew assigned to the ALCS between the Detroit Tigers and the Boston Red Sox.

The tandem will call balls and strikes in the Game Ones and the potential Game Sevens of the two LCS.  Davis and West were the crew chiefs and home plate umpires in the A.L. and N.L. Wild Card Games presented by Budweiser, respectively, during this Postseason.

Davis, whose 116 career Postseason games officiated are a Major League record, will lead an NLCS crew that includes regular season crew chief Ted Barrett, Mark Carlson, Bruce Dreckman, Mike Everitt and Greg Gibson.  Barrett, Everitt and Gibson teamed with Davis for the A.L. Wild Card Game, while Dreckman was assigned to the A.L. Wild Card Tiebreaker Game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Texas Rangers.  This will mark the 26th career Postseason assignment for Davis, including his ninth LCS.  The NLCS, which will be exclusively telecast by TBS, begins tonight at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

West, who leads the active staff in years of Major League service with 36, will guide an ALCS crew featuring regular season crew chief Dale Scott, Rob Drake, Dan Iassogna, Ron Kulpa and Alfonso Marquez.  Scott, Drake and Iassogna worked the N.L. Wild Card Game with West, while Kulpa was assigned to the A.L. Tiebreaker Game between Tampa Bay and Texas.  This is West’s 21st career Postseason assignment, including his eighth LCS.  The ALCS, which will be exclusively broadcast by FOX, begins on Saturday at Fenway Park.

Jack Zduriencik to Return as General Manager of the Mariners for 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Jack ZJack Zduriencik, the general manager of the Seattle Mariners will be returning for at least the 2014 season, according to a report by Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times.

“Yes, Jack will be back,” Mariners president Chuck Armstrong said.

Citing club policy Armstrong would not get into details regarding the duration of deal to retain Zduriencik, but according to sources to Baker, it is expected to be a short term contract.

Zduriencik took over in 2008. Since then the Mariners have been an abysmal 417-550. The Mariners are on pace to lose more than 90 games this season after losing 87 in 2012. In 2008 and 2010 the team lost 101 games. Only the 2009 season, one year after Zduriencik took over, did the Mariners have a record above .500 (85-77, .525 winning percentage).

While Zduriencik is returning, the fate of manager Eric Wedge is not so certain. According to multiple sources, unless there is a dramatic turnaround of opinion in the front office, Wedge will be fired shortly after the end of the season.

With Passing of Hiroshi Yamauchi, Nintendo of America Retains Ownership of Seattle Mariners PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 273
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Thursday, 19 September 2013 16:08

Hiroshi Yamauchi, the man listed as majority owner of the Seattle Mariners, and a key figure that headed Nintendo from 1994 to 2002, passed away at the age of 85 on Thursday in Kyoto, Japan. The cause was complications from pneumonia.

The Mariners released a statement saying:

The Seattle Mariners organization is deeply saddened by the passing today of Mr. Hiroshi Yamauchi. His leadership of Nintendo is legendary worldwide. His decision in 1992 to purchase the Mariners franchise and keep Major League Baseball in Seattle as a "gesture of goodwill to the citizens of the Pacific Northwest" is legendary in this region. Mr. Yamauchi will be remembered for his role in moving forward the opportunity for Japanese baseball players to play in the United States. He will forever be a significant figure in Mariners Baseball history.

The impact of Yamauchi on the history of the Mariners and Major League Baseball marked one of the key turning points in both their history. The club was floundering under former owner Jeff Smulyan and on the verge of being relocated to Tampa Bay where a new domed ballpark had been built. Senator Slade Gordon from Washington convinced Yamauchi to purchase the club for $100 million and keep the Mariners in Seattle. Smulyan had purchased the club for $76 million in 1989 from George Argyros.

It was an unexpected move. At the time, there was no international ownership presence and initially then commissioner Fay Vincent and four owners rejected the sale approval, but they eventually relented under the condition that the Chairman and President of the club be American partners.

Under the ownership, the Mariners became contenders in 1995 and eventually moved out of the Kingdome and into Safeco Field in July of 1999. Without Yamauchi, the fate of the Mariners would have been quite different.

Yamauchi likely saw ownership of the Mariners as more of an interesting addition to his portfolio rather than purchasing the club due to a passion for baseball. He never attended a Mariners game, even when they and the A’s played two exhibition games in Tokyo and Ichiro was still with the club. As the team has languished in the standings, questions about whether there has been a passionate connection to winning at the ownership level has grown. The club has steadfastly denied those assertions.

The question now is, who takes over as the majority owner of the Mariners? While Mr. Yamauchi retained the title of majority owner of the Mariners, he sold his majority interest in the club in 2004 to Nintendo of America and was asked to retain that title at the request of Nintendo of America’s Board of Directors. In that, the ownership of the club remains unchanged in the wake of Mr. Yamauchi’s passing. Nintendo of America remains the majority owner of the club, and will be listed as the majority owner.

DBacks and Phillies Play Fourth-Longest MLB Game of All-Time PDF Print E-mail

Line up card - Historic DBacks-Phillies game

Kirk Gibson must have nearly run out of ink for this historic line-up card

While most were fast asleep, the game raged on. Inning after inning, the Diamondbacks and Phillies continued to play last night. A game that started at 7:05pm on Saturday finally ended after 18 innings when Adam Eaton of the Diamondbacks hit a go-ahead double finally resulting in a 12-7 win for the Diamondbacks. The game ended at 2:12am Sunday, an extraordinary 7 hours and 6 minutes long.

''Oh God, it was tough,'' Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said after the game. ''I'm pretty tired, I really don't know what to tell you.''

It is not the longest by inning, but was historic for its length by time. It was the longest game in Phillies and Diamondbacks history. Given that the Phillies were established in 1883, that’s saying something.

It will go into the record books as the fourth-longest game of all-time. It was the longest MLB game by time since June 3, 1989, when the Astros beat the Dodgers, 5-4, in a 22-inning game in Houston which lasted 7 hours and 14 min. In an odd bit of symmetry, the game was exactly one hour short of the all-time record for a Major League game by time of 8 hours 6 min played between the White Sox and Brewers on May 1, 1984.

It was a game that saw 20 different pitchers. There were 137 at-bats, 35 hits, 32 strikeouts and 28 walks. The teams used every available player they had, minus three starting pitchers on each side. Centerfielder Casper Wells of the Phillies was on the mound in the 18th inning using what could best be described as a lot of sinkers.

Less than 12 hours later, the sides meet again, begging the question whether it was even worth leaving Citizens Bank Park.

Here’s where the game ranks historically.

LONGEST MLB GAMES BY TIME

1)      Tuesday, May 1, 1984 (Brewers-White Sox) at Comiskey Park I 8 hours 6 min. Total innings: 25. White Sox won 7-6. Winning pitcher (Tom Seaver). Losing pitcher (Chuck Porter) (box score)

2)      Sunday, May 31, 1964 (Giants-Mets) at Shea Stadium 7 hours 23 min. Total innings: 23. Giants won 8-6. It was the second game of a double-header. Winning pitcher (Gaylord Perry). Losing pitcher (Galen Cisco) (box score)

3)      Saturday, June 3, 1989 (Dodgers-Astros) at The Astrodome – 7 hours 14 min. Total innings: 22. Astros won 5-4. Winning pitcher (Jim Clancy). Losing pitcher (Jeff Hamilton) (box score)

4)      Saturday, August 24, 2013 (Diamondbacks-Phillies) at Citizens Bank Park – 7 hours 6 min. Total innings: 18. Diamondbacks won 12-7). Winning pitcher (Trevor Cahill). Losing pitcher (Centerfielder Casper Wells)

Miguel Tejada Receives Second-Longest PED Suspension in MLB History for Stimulants PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 249

Written by Maury Brown   
Saturday, 17 August 2013 16:03

MiggyKansas City Royals infielder Miguel Tejada has received a 105-game suspension without pay after testing positive for an Amphetamine in violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. It is the second-longest PED suspension handed down by MLB behind only Alex Rodriguez pending 211 game suspension, which could see those games lowered, or overturned entirely. The only other drug related suspensions that have been longer were Pasual Perez being suspended for the entire 1992 season for cocaine, and Dwight Gooden suspended for all of the 1995 season for violating a drug aftercare program.

SEE THE ALL-TIME MLB/MiLB DRUG SUSPENSION LIST

Tejada tested positive twice in close proximity to each other thus garnering a 25 game and 80 game suspension concurrently for a total of 105 games. The drug agreement between the players and the league states that for a first positive test for stimulants, a player receives no suspension, but follow-up testing. Therefore Tejada has tested positive three times. If he were to come back and play after a lengthy suspension, and test positive again, he could be banned from the game for life. Based upon the drug agreement a player that has a fourth violation can see permanent banishment from MLB and Minor League Baseball by the commissioner, which would automatically be brought forward to an arbitrator to ultimately rule on the case.

Tejada released a statement through the MLB Players Association saying, ““I apologize to my teammates, the Royals organization and to the Kansas City fans. I have a medical condition that requires medication to treat. I took that medication while re-applying for a Therapeutic Use Exemption. Under the requirements of the Joint Drug Program, I made a mistake in doing so.”

Sources confirm that the Therapeutic Use Exemption was for Adderall, a powerful stimulant used to treat ADD and ADHD. The exemption expired on April 15 of this year but Tejada did not get it renewed.

Earlier this week, the former 2002 AL MVP shortstop was placed on the 60-day DL for a minor calf strain, leading to speculation that he might be facing a potential suspension.

Tejada has been tied to PEDs in the past. He admitted in 2009 to lying to Congress about using PEDs, which a misdemeanor charge that could have had him serving a year in jail. Based on sentencing guidelines, he did not serve time.

In 2008, he admitted to lying about his age saying at the time he was 33, two years older he was listed in the team media guide for the Astros.

MLB to Expand Instant Replay to Everything Short of Balls and Strikes PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 229
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Thursday, 15 August 2013 12:21

MLBOn a day that Commissioner Selig called, “historic”, Major League Baseball is expected to have expanded instant replay on virtually all aspects of the game, short of called balls and strikes. According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, “MLB vice president Joe Torre, Atlanta Braves GM John Schuerholz and advisor Tony La Russa presented the all-encompassing replay proposal to the 30 ownership groups” with ratification expected to occur by the league’s owners during their quarterly meetings on 13-14 in Orlando, Fla.

Like the NFL, managers would be able to “challenge” calls made by the umpires.

The MLBPA and union for the umpires would need to approve the changes that would take place in 2014. The players appear to be ready to accept the changes.

"My sense is that players will be willing to expand replay, to every base, if we have the right technology," union executive director Michael Weiner told USA TODAY Sports. "Nobody is interested in (replaying) balls or strikes, but I think the players are in favor of everything else, and I think the owners likely do as well."

Joe West, president of the World Umpires Association, did not want to talk publicly about negotiations, but said Tuesday, "This group of umpires today are more conscientious of getting things correct than ever before. Umpires want everything they can to help them."

According to USA Today:

The replay will include up to three challenges that mangers will be provided during a game, one in the first six innings, and two beginning in the seventh inning through the game's duration. If a manager is successful with his replay challenge, he will not be charged with a review.

If a manager exhausts his three challenges, and umpire crew can make a review of its own only to determine home-run calls, a rule that will be grandfathered in with the new regulations.

Cost is expected to $25-$40 million, something the owners were willing to accept. Reviews will tap into MLB Advance Media’s (MLBAM) system for capturing games and replay cameras will be monitored by those with umpiring experience.

Barring injury, Alex Rodriguez will likely play out the remainder of the 2013 season

On Wednesday, the Major League Baseball Players Association formally filed a grievance regarding Alex Rodriguez’ 211 game suspension for PED use associated to the Biogenesis scandal. While the suspension is slated to kick in today, based upon provisions in the drug agreement between the players and the league, Rodriguez’ suspension is stayed until the grievance is heard by an independent arbitrator.

First reported by The Associated Press, the process of having the grievance heard by independent arbitrator Fredric Horowitz would not occur until November or December. If so, barring injury, Rodriguez would be allowed to play for the Yankees through the rest of the 2013 regular season, and should the Yankees rise in the standings, any postseason play. Should Horowitz uphold part or all of the league’s suspension it would begin being served at the start of the 2014 season.

The remaining 13 players that were suspended as part of MLB’s investigation into Biogenesis, including former MVP Ryan Braun, and All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, and Everth Cabrera all accepted suspensions without appeal and thus will all serve their suspensions in the 2013 season. Rodriguez was the only player to receive such a high number of games under suspension that would carry over into the 2014 season. It is unclear how Horowitz will rule, but he does have the option of lowering the number of games served and thus, any ruling may not have Rodriguez serving 211 games beginning in 2014 and carrying over into the 2015 season. In 1992 former commissioner Fay Vincent suspended pitcher Steve Howe for life after his seventh drug violation but an arbitrator knocked that down to 119 games.
