Sad Day in Baseball

Aug 28, 2013 -- 5:35pm

Very sad to see a great young pitcher, Matt Harvey of the Mets go down with possible Tommy John surgery.  Sad for the Mets, sad for the game of baseball.  The so called book doesn’t work.  I’d like to know who wrote the book. 

Great to see that college football is finally here.  So looking forward to it.  Go Irish!!!!!!  Go Dawgs!!!!!!

Happy Father's Day

Jun 17, 2013 -- 10:29am

Happy Father’s Day!!!!

 

Thinking of my dad today.  He lives so far away and I don’t get to see him as much as I would like to.  He and I got to realize OUR major league dreams together!  I owe my career to him.

 

I feel so lucky.  Got to spend time with my middle son Chris on Memorial Day when he came to umpire in the Leo Mazzone Memorial Day tournament.   Spent this weekend with my youngest son Nick on the lake.  What a great weekend.  And this Father’s Day I’m a proud granddad for the very first time.  My oldest son Tony became the proud papa of a beautiful little girl, Brooke Elizabeth Mazzone, in December.  Life is good.

Something to Digest

May 06, 2013 -- 10:58am

 

So today I got my Baseball Digest in the mail and found this small little snip it that I wanted to share.  I found it extremely interesting. 

 

“One of Roy Halladay’s few highlights in 2012 was notching his 2,000th career strikeout.  Among pitchers who have reached that plateau, the Phil’s ace now ranks third all-time in strikeout-to-walk ratio (3.78).  Here were the top 10 at the start of the 2013 season.”

 

Pitchers With Best Strikeout-to-Walk Ratios (Min of 2,000 S0)

 

Pitcher                                                  SO                          BB                           Ratio

Curt Schilling                                      3,116                    711                         4.38

Pedro Martinez                                   3,154                    760                         4.15

Roy Halladay                                      2,066                    556                         3.78

Mike Mussina                                     2,813                    785                         3.58

Greg Maddux                                      3,371                    999                         3.37

Javier Vazquez                                   2,536                     763                         3.32

Randy Johnson                                 4,875                    1,497                         3.26

Dennis Eckersley                              2,401                     738                          3.25

Juan Marichal                                    2,303                     709                          3.25

Fergie Jenkins                                  3,192                      997                          3.20
