Talk Zone / Peavy stepping up
« on: July 01, 2012, 06:09:11 pm »
This was mentioned by JD and Brownie in during the telecast yesterday, but thought it worth a mention here as well: Jake Peavy is stepping up for his friend on Saturday.

Peavy, as a tribute to former Padres bullpen coach Darrell Akerfelds, who passed away earlier this week at the age of 50 from pancreatic cancer, is donating $100 for every Saturday strikeout to fight the remorseless disease that took his friend.

And lest you misunderstand... that is per strikeout throughout MLB... 

Kudos Mr. Peavy sir!

The Bus Ride Discussion Forum / Pelotero (movie)
« on: June 22, 2012, 01:50:41 pm »
It's been discussed on these boards for a couple of years now, but the movie Pelotero is scheduled for limited release, iTunes, and On Demand viewing for July 13, 2012.  As you may recall, the movie profiles kids in the Dominican pre-signing, signing, and initial foray into pro ball.  Though they were initially following 8 players, the movie ultimately focuses on 2: Miguel Sano (Twins $3.15M signee - record non-Cuban signing at the time), and Juan Carlos Batista (Astros $200K signee).  The character synopsis of Jean Carlos Batista is as follows:

Jean Carlos Batista, 16, is a young shortstop who left home at age 13 to practice with a renowned baseball train Astin Jacobo in the wake of his father's death.  Three years later, Astin calls Jean Carlos his adopted son, and has turned him into one of the island's elite prospects.  Together, they navigate the business side of the Dominican baseball system in search of the highest signing bonus.  But as offers arrive, Jean Carlos' overconfidence and the revelation of a secret kept from him by his parents may endanger his promising career, as well as jeopardize his relationship with the man he considers his father.

I'm presuming the 'revelation' is age related - IIRC he is 19, but I guess I'll have to wait and see...

Congrats to the Mariners, who last night vs. the Dodgers became the second team to combine for a 6-pitcher no-hitter! MLB Gameday LINK; Chron.com story LINK.

The Bus Ride Discussion Forum / 2012 Draftees and Status
« on: June 04, 2012, 04:58:46 pm »
This '2012 Draftees and Status' thread will open at 5 CDST on 6/4/12.  The '2012 Draft' thread will be closed at that time.

Given the importance of the MLB slotting allotments in the 2012 draft, there will be a slightly different format to the 'Draftees and Status' thread.  There will be an initial chart used through the end of the draft, and a 'supplemental' chart that we'll transition to after the draft is complete.  Both are shown below.

He's having a HORRIFIC season in Toronto and was just outrighted to AAA...   but...  I wouldn't think he is *done* yet, and has some legit HR power.  If the kid turns it around, could be a steal and HOU will need a 1B/DH type next year as well (even if they do keep Carlos around).  Thoughts?  STATS LINK
