WBC Qualifier 1: New Zealand no match for South Africa

The Dutch Baseball Hangout

Today the World Basecall Qualifier 1 in Sydney took off. In the first game New Zealand hosted South Africa.

The final score was rather lopsided as the winner only walked away in the final inning.
The game was rather close until the ninth and the runs did not come cheap until then.

South Africa started to bring a runner to third base in the first inning, but failed to score when Brett Willemburg lined out to shortstop Scott Campbell for the final out.

In the second inning both teams did not come close to scoring.

South Africa started the third inning with a double play so they had only one out to work with. New Zealand starter Scott Cone was replaced in the top of the third inning already. Ben Cone took his place. That appeared to be a bad move as Ben Cone could not get out of the inning…

Three Reasons Why Miguel Cabrera Is A Top 10 Fantasy Pickup

Cabrera is already the Active leader for Career Batting Average among players.  He has a .326 Lifetime Average for the Tigers.  Provided he can maintain relatively healthy, he should make it into the top 5 ALL - Time for Hits - with a chance for 4000 Hits if he can be dominant for the next 3 - 4 seasons..

Songs You Hear The Most At The MLB BallParks

Who can forget Neil Diamond singing Sweet Caroline at Fenway Park right after the Boston Marathon bombing?

I saw a ton of MLB games live last year.  224 to be exact.  I spent a lot of time listening to music at the park before and after the game.

I was also fed a steady dose of ‘Uptown Funk’ by Bruno Mars, ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift, and if I hear “Shut up and Dance with me” one more time by Walk the Moon, I am just going to snap.

Baltimore played the best music at the yard hands down.  They were huge into Silento’s Whip, Nae-Nae, but also one can’t not love the “Thank God I’m a country boy” (which I have seen played numerous times at Kauffman Stadium as well.”

During several games at Camden Yards they also played “(Apache – Jump On it”) by Sugarhill Gang, and this little number is played every where.

I started to think of the most common played tunes at the park.

Rob Base’s and EZ Rock’s “It Takes Two” is routinely played at baseball venue’s after a doubleplay.  Michael Jackson’s “Wanna be Starting Something” seems to find its way onto the audio deck when a rally is started. Read the rest of this entry

The White Sox Need To Sign 1 Of Fowler Or Desmond To Stay Competitive

The White Sox have had a decent offseason however every team that was near or beneath them in the standings have also upgrade their rosters going into 2016. With a need for an upgrade for the OF, and the chance to out forth an incredible homer centric Infield, I would love to see them go after Ian Desmond, and/or Dexter Fowler.

I like the moves the White Sox have done in the offseason.  The only problem is what the Royals and Tigers also have done this winter will make it tough for Chicago to keep up.

The Pale Hose finished a disappointing 76 – 86 in 2015 – and almost 20 games behind Division winner KC for the AL Central.

2014 winter moves of Adam LaRoche, Jeff Samardzija and Melky Cabrera just didn’t work out like they thought.

Despite the poor results off those player acquisitions Rich Hahn acquired Todd Frazier and Brett Lawrie so far in the hot stove this year, and also inked catchers Alex Avila and Dioner Navarro as key moves.

I love this aggression – and even believe that LaRoche and Cabrera will have bounce back seasons for the White Sox this season.  Cabrera was pretty decent in the 2nd half, and LaRoche suffered the Adam Dunn NL to AL syndrome.

Having said this already, the Royals are sitting with a talented squad as reigning World Series Champs, and the Tigers added Jordan Zimmermann, Justin Upton, and bushel full of relievers and Cameron Maybin.

There is no doubt in my mind that Detroit will be much better than their cellar dweller 2015 campaign.

The White Sox have a decent pitching staff in its entirety. Maybe not as talented as the Cleveland Indians, but the Tribe doesn’t have the sticks as Chicago either.

KC has the best bullpen in the Division, and will rely heavily on it again with their grinder offense backing it up.

Minnesota has a ton of young offensive superstars in Miguel Sano, Brian Dozier and Byron Buxton, yet also lost team leader Torii Hunter.

Chicago is still spending at a decent clip – having a budget of near $123 MIL so far, but Detroit has crept up to near $200 MIL, and KC has paid for its title, by going near the $140 MIL team salary barrier. Read the rest of this entry
