During Slow Offseasons The Brewers Keep Finding Deals

The Milwaukee Brewers took advantage of an ice-cold hot-stove season last winter to become the rare team to win in the offseason and in the regular season. By agreeing Wednesday night with free-agent catcher Yasmani Grandal on a one-year, $18.25 million deal, the Brewers again took advantage of an opportunity to find tremendous value. As most teams zig in another slow offseason, the Brewers, again, zag.While Grandal didn’t have a great postseason with the Dodgers last fall, he was one of the best players available on the free-agent market. According to the Baseball Prospectus version of wins above replacement, which includes a catcher’s pitch-framing ability, Grandal was the 14th most valuable position player in baseball last season (5.0 WAR) and the eighth most valuable player per plate appearance (5.8 WAR per 600 plate appearances) among qualified hitters.That was not a fluke.In terms of total value, Grandal was the No. 1 position player by WAR per plate appearance in 2016 (8.7 WAR per 600 plate appearances), and he ranked seventh in 2017. Over the past four seasons, he was worth 21.2 total WAR. That’s star-level production. He turned 30 in November, so he’s not ancient in baseball terms. But despite all this going for him, Grandal settled for a one-year deal.The switch-hitter offers rare power and patience at the catcher position. Over the past four seasons, his walk rate of 12.8 percent ranks 19th among all MLB batters. His .453 slugging mark ranks third among all qualified catchers, and his 116 weighted runs created plus, a measure of offensive ability that adjusts for park and run-scoring environments,1100 is league average. trails only Gary Sanchez and Buster Posey.Not only is Grandal’s offense rare at his position, but his ability to frame pitches — to get more borderline pitches called favorably — gives him tremendous value at the plate and behind it.Grandal led all catchers in framing runs last season (15.7 runs saved above average). He ranked fourth in 2017 and second in 2016. Even as catchers as a group have improved their ability to receive or frame pitches, raising the floor of the skill, Grandal has maintained his edge. By runs saved, framing is more valuable than blocking balls in the dirt, an area in which Grandal is not as adept.Consider the following visual evidence of Grandal’s magic behind the plate last season. As a Clayton Kershaw slider darted slightly outside the strike zone, Grandal’s glove moved it back to within the confines of the zone. A pitch that should have been called a ball then appeared to be a strike.Grandal managed to softly absorb this high-and-away Kershaw fastball and make it appear to finish as a strike. It’s a subtle but valuable skill.Grandal was attached to a qualifying offer, meaning that the team signing him would have to surrender draft-pick compensation. As a revenue-sharing recipient, the Brewers will surrender their third-highest pick in the draft. The qualifying offer slightly diminished Grandal’s value, but qualifying offers are far from the only — and far from the greatest — issue conspiring against free agents. Even after last winter’s lack of free-agent activity, Grandal likely expected that he would be able to do much better than the deal he got. He not only turned down the Los Angeles Dodgers’ qualifying offer earlier in the offseason, but he also reportedly rejected a four-year, $60 million offer from the New York Mets.Instead, Grandal becomes the latest free agent to receive far fewer dollars and years than he had initially sought.The average salary in baseball declined last year for just the fourth time in the past 50 years and the first time since 2004, according to the Associated Press.Through Wednesday, the 73rd day of this offseason, 10.2 percent of available free agents2Our pool of available free agents includes any player with major league experience who was granted free agency or released in October and November of each season. That excludes players signed internationally or those waived by a club before the season ended or later in the offseason. had signed for a total of $856.2 million, according to a FiveThirtyEight analysis of data from The Baseball Cube. While that’s an improvement over the same point of last offseason, when only 6.5 percent of free agents had signed for $550.5 million, the total dollars spent to date are still down from 2016-17 ($1.017 billion through Day 73), 2015-16 ($1.697 billion), 2014-15 ($1.308 billion) and 2013-14 ($1.452 billion).And the share of free agents signed is trending above the past two offseasons, but it’s still trailing the previous three: As the free agency landscape changes, some teams seem to be looking for openings to give them an edge. Grandal has been the Brewers’ only guaranteed free-agent signing so far,3They have also reportedly agreed to a split deal with pitcher Jake Petricka, meaning that the contract would depend on whether he makes the big-league club. but it’s a significant addition in their quest to repeat as National League Central champs.Sara Ziegler contributed research. read more

Famous Ronaldo sculptor reveals stars request

first_imgThe sculptor Emanuel Jorge da Silva Santos has recreated his iconic Cristiano Ronaldo sculpture that caught the attention of the whole world last yearIn honour of their Real Madrid star, Madeira’s Fuchal Airport was renamed the Cristiano Ronaldo Madeira International Airport with a bust having been made for the legendary forward, who captained Portugal to the Euro 2016 trophy.Ronaldo, who attended the opening ceremony of this special event, was presented with a bronze bust of his face, that quickly went viral on the internet with British comedian James Corden famously saying: “It looks like his face was bended like Beckham!”But Bleacher Report has now recently tracked down Silva Santos and convinced the now-famous sculptor to give it another try.29.03.2017 vs. 29.03.2018Emmanuel Santos’ shot at redemption. pic.twitter.com/A91RjDJCOF— B/R Football (@brfootball) 29 March 2018Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The new version certainly looks to be an improvement, but Ronaldo did make one last request for the sculptor before unveiling to the world.“[Ronaldo’s] smile is ripped to the left side.” the sculptor told Bleacher Report“As we know, Ronaldo is vain. He likes to be all groomed up!“When they tried it they—instead of thinning them out slightly—added a few strokes so [as] to conceal the wrinkles. It wasn’t a detail of great relevance and it didn’t change much of the wrinkles it had.”Following a difficult start to the season, Ronaldo has had a resurgence of his own at Real this season with the Portuguese star having scored 21 goals in his last 11 appearances for the club.last_img read more

Desailly on World Cup France will now surprise everyone

first_imgMarcel Desailly has backed the inexperienced France squad to cause a surprise in the upcoming World Cup in RussiaLes Bleus somewhat struggled in the qualifying stages of the World Cup and have been drawn against the likes of  Australia, Peru and Denmark in Group C for this summer’s tournament.But Desailly, who himself won the 1998 World Cup with France, is convinced that they have the quality to do well in the tournament and believes that their opponents in Group C will be relatively easy compared to the rest of the competition.“They have quality but not the experience, so we hope that the group stage, which is apparently not that difficult, will allow them to build up the confidence that they need,” said the 49-year-old, according to Gulf News.“When you top up confidence plus talent you hope that yes, France will now surprise everyone.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“They surprised us during the Euros when we were not sure they were capable of reaching the final, and they almost won, so maybe they can do the same with the World Cup.“We need a win, it’s been too long. It’s the 20th anniversary of us winning the World Cup, so it would be good if they could win it this year.”France previously finished as the runners-up in Euro 2016, but Desailly warned that a lot has changed since then and fears that team boss Didier Deschamps is yet to find a system to properly utilise the new players in the squad.“We’ve lost all confidence built up during the Euros, we’ve lost our left and right backs in defence (Patrice Evra and Bacary Sagna have retired from international football), and we have new players who have to adapt to each other. Didier Deschamps doesn’t really know about his tactical set-up or his philosophy, so there’s quite a lot of work to do.” said the former Chelsea defender.“The Euros are gone and now you are starting a new movement. You can say they are ready for the next Euros hoping maybe that they are going to surprise everybody at the World Cup — that is the position of France.”last_img read more

Each time, they were incredible games,” he told France Football ahead of his side’s Group C opener against Paris Saint-Germain.“We played against teams challenging for the title, and we still managed to reach the final, so of course we can do it again. I’m sure of it. We can even win both, the Champions League and the Premier League. I don’t want us to put pressure on ourselves, but yes, everything is possible.“It’s a good draw with some good teams. PSG have some very good individuals and a great team. I’m looking forward to playing them. I’m looking forward to a very enjoyable and intense encounter.”last_img read more

School becomes a field hospital in Iraqs Mosul

first_imgMembers of the Iraqi forces tend to a civilian who was injured by Islamic State (IS) group jihadists at a school turned hospital in western Mosul. Photo: AFPFifteen-year-old Mohammed enthusiastically helps the staff of a makeshift hospital set up in the bullet-scarred school in west Mosul where he himself studied before jihadists seized Iraq’s second city.The Islamic State group used the school as part of its programme of indoctrination until it lost control of the area during a major Iraqi offensive launched last month, and it is now used to treat people wounded in the ongoing battle for the western side of the city.Like many buildings in Mosul, the school bears the signs of warfare.In addition to being pockmarked with bullets, most of the windows are broken, walls are cracked and the floor is littered with bullet casings.The entrance hall has been transformed into an emergency room, which is stocked with only limited equipment but still allows for first aid to be administered to the wounded and sick.One young man lies on a narrow bed, his face pale and tired.“A sniper (from IS) fired at him but missed, so he started to run, and the sniper shot again and hit him,” says Fathi Waad, one of the victim’s relatives.“This is the third time that someone in the family has been hit by a sniper,” he adds.Each day, the hospital looks after around 100 patients, both civilians and security personnel, often the victims of gunshot wounds, says Aqil Karim, a medic from the elite Counter-Terrorism Service.A dust-covered red pickup suddenly stops in front of the school to deliver a semi-conscious old man whose foot has been injured.American dreamUnlike the previous patient, he is not the victim of violence, but rather of an accident, and he is also suffering from dehydration.As soon as he arrives, he is carried to a bed, where his wound is washed, disinfected and dressed.Treating him is just as important as tending to those wounded by war in a city where the fighting has destroyed many medical facilities.More than 200,000 Iraqis have fled west Mosul since Iraqi forces began the assault to retake the area on February 19, the government says, but hundreds of thousands more are still in danger inside the city.With school lessons unlikely to resume at any time soon, several former pupils have returned to the building to help the medical staff.Indifferent to the sound of gunfire and explosions outside, one of them rushes around helping out where he can, dressed in a tracksuit with a blue hood.Mohammed has barely finished unloading a delivery of equipment when he is already back inside handing out food rations.“We cook, clean the equipment, and when wounded people arrive we help them,” says the slender teenager, who is delighted no longer to be in class under the jihadists.“Our teachers were hard on us. They’d beat us,” he says. “And they’d ask us to pledge allegiance to IS.”But Mohammed does not see a future for himself in the ruins of a city disfigured by months of heavy fighting. Instead, he yearns to join his relatives in the United States.His dream job once there? “Doctor” of course.last_img read more
