Baseball At The Halfway Point

Since the Indians officially have hit their halfway mark, I thought it'd be a good time to go over the A.L. at the halfway point. I will let someone with more knowledge than I of the N.L. to go over the Senior Circut at this juncture.

Best Team(s); There are, right now, only 4 contenders that I see in the A.L: Anaheim, Boston, Cleveland and Detroit. The records of the first 3 are close to identicle, and the Tigers aren't far behind them. Unless the Twins and A's do what they do often in the 2nd half of the season, I don't see other competitors out there.

MVP: Has to be Magglio Ordonez. Hands down. He's having a monster year, and is a big reason the Tigers are in the think of the Central race. Victor Martinez of the Tribe is up there, too. If the Yankees were having any kind of year, A-Rod and Jeter would be there as well.

Best Pitcher: Gotta go with C.C. Sabathia, tilted cap and all. He's been as dominant as any pitcher in the game. First 12 game winner, 2 complete games. He should be 13-2, as the Indians lost a game where C.C. threw a 9-inning shutout, but the Tribe lost in extras. Have to put Dan Haren, Josh Beckett and John Lackey are up there as well.

Best Manager: Mike Scocia gets my vote. Eric Wedge of the Tribe is up there, but I still don't like him much. Big grin

Most Dissapointing Team(s): The White Sox and the Yankees. I think the Yanks were far over-rated to begin with, what with that shit-hole of a pitching staff, but they're simply getting old, and they need a major makeover. The White Sox have talent, but are grossly underachieving. There's a fire sale gonna start soon in Chicago.

A N.L. recap and your takes would be appreciated.

Lincecum for SF looked dynamite today. 12Ks and gave up 0 ER and 3 hits.

The A's will make a run when their injured players come back.They'll win the wild card.

After this response post, I will do an NL summary

Quoting Falcon84 (Thread starter):

Best Pitcher: Gotta go with C.C. Sabathia, tilted cap and all. He's been as dominant as any pitcher in the game. First 12 game winner, 2 complete games. He should be 13-2, as the Indians lost a game where C.C. threw a 9-inning shutout, but the Tribe lost in extras. Have to put Dan Haren, Josh Beckett and John Lackey are up there as well

C.C. is definitely up there with the top guys, but you have to also consider Verlander and Kelvim Escobar, who have both had great starts.

Quoting Falcon84 (Thread starter):

MVP: Has to be Magglio Ordonez. Hands down. He's having a monster year, and is a big reason the Tigers are in the think of the Central race. Victor Martinez of the Tribe is up there, too. If the Yankees were having any kind of year, A-Rod and Jeter would be there as well.

I think one dude who should be looked at for MVP and has been left off the All Star team is Orlando Cabrera. I mean, gold glove defense and the dude is hitting over .340, and is a major catalyst for the Angels' attack.

Quoting Falcon84 (Thread starter):

Best Manager: Mike Scocia gets my vote. Eric Wedge of the Tribe is up there, but I still don't like him much.

No doubt about it, Mike Scioscia is the best manager in all of baseball. It is too bad the Dodgers snubbed him for the useless Jim Tracy

Quoting Falcon84 (Thread starter):

Most Dissapointing Team(s): The White Sox and the Yankees. I think the Yanks were far over-rated to begin with, what with that shit-hole of a pitching staff, but they're simply getting old, and they need a major makeover. The White Sox have talent, but are grossly underachieving. There's a fire sale gonna start soon in Chicago.

No doubt about those two. I don't know about the Chicago fire sale though. They might chalk it up to a bad year and try again with a similar team next year

As far as the best team goes, there is no question about it. From top to bottom, the Angels are the absolute best team in baseball.

The NL Summary

Best Team: The NL is so close as far as talent goes, one really has a hard time picking. My pick is the Dodgers because 1) they are my team and 2) they have thoroughly underperformed and are still fighting for the top of the NL West. Their division rivals the Padres have excellent pitching, but their hitting is going to kill them as time goes on. Arizona is playing completely out of their league right now and it will show in the second half. The Brew Crew have done a great job and I think they are the real deal, so they deserve consideration. The Braves are back, but I think it is their pitching that is going to fail them coming down the stretch. The Metropolitans are playing excellent ball and have the most dynamic lineup right now in the NL, and will be downright scary when Del Gaddo's bat heats up. Their only problem is inconsistent pitching.

MVP: While I would love to say Russell Martin or Gonzo, this has to go to Prince Fielder. The dude is only 23 and is not only challenging for the MLB home run crown, he plays excellent defense for a big man, can run the bases and is leading a team that has been mired in the cellar for years to the playoffs

Best Pitcher: There are two guys at the top here who make all else look like also rans. Those guys are Brad Penny of the Dodgers and Jake Peavy of the Padres. Penny leads the NL in ERA and wins, while Peavy is second in ERA and wins and first in Strikeouts. Both have only allowed 2 home runs this year, which I think is the most amazing stat since they are both power pitchers who throw strikes. This toss up I have to give to Penny, 1) because he is on my team and 2) because he should actually have 2 more wins and he has shown to better ability to be a complete pitcher.

Best Manager: It ain't Grady Little, I will tell you that much. Bud Black and Ned Yost are the ones competing for this. The Padres, particularly their pitching, have done an amazing job this year and do lots of little things right. The Brewers have completely outplayed all expectations and don't look like the perennial door mats anymore. I think Yost gets this simply because of the shocking nature of the Brew Crew's play

Biggest Disappointment: Without a doubt, this goes to the St. Louis Cardinals. The World Series champions are playing more like the Brewers were expected to than the way the Cardinals have played over the last decade. While they have improved some, I don't think you can say they are a legitimate threat to win the title again this year.

The Mariners, as I said in my other thread about Hargrove, are doing exceptionally well for the first time since 2002. They may not win the A.L. West title, but they do have a shot at a wild card spot provided they keep doing well. We'll see.

How about a list of those best at their position for the first half.

AL
P: Dan Haren. While I would like to say Lackey or Escobar, Dan Haren is nearly a half run better than anyone in the league for ERA and does it despite not having a great offense like Lackey/Escobar, Sabathia and Verlander have.

C: Pudge, and I will tell you why. While Martinez and Posada are both knocking the cover off the ball and having better years offensively, neither one can carry Ivan's jock defensively. Until they can actually throw people out, Rodriguez wins in the AL

1B: Casey Kotchman. A surprise pick perhaps, but don't blame me for L.A. bias on this one. Kotchman is the best defensive first baseman in baseball right now and his hitting is right up there too. Youklis comes close, but Kotchman even has a positive BB/K ratio, which is amazing these days.

2B: Placido Polanco, in perhaps the closest competition. Brian Roberts outshines Polanco offensively, as he hits with more power and is quicker than a rabbit, but Polanco has made exactly ZERO errors this year while hitting .333. Amazing

3B: Alex Rodriguez. This is a pretty duh one, as he is one of the 3 best players in the game and absolutely dominating this year. The only bad thing about the choice is A-Rod is a jerk, or at least was when I met him. Anyway, the honorable mention here goes to Chone Figgins of the Angels. I mean come on, 53 hits in 1 month?!?! This dude was hitting .133 at one point and is now at .327, not to mention being one of the fastest players in baseball.

SS: Orlando Cabrera. Jim Leyland, if you are reading, you absolutely committed highway robbery by not putting this man on the all star team. Sorry Jeter, but the Wizard of OC has equaled you offensively and has only committed 4 errors to your 12. It really shouldn't even be a contest

LF: Reggie Willits. Yeah, yeah, I like the Angels, but look at what this dude has done as a rookie. He is something like 4th in the league in hitting, has 20 steals, plays defense and is tied for 4th in OBP. He is the rookie of the year and the AL's best left fielder

CF: Ichiro. This dude is frighteningly good. He hits everything he sees, steals bases, hits for power and is probably the best defensive outfielder that exists. He is a little dude who throws as well as anyone and still has the range to pull down anything. Simply amazing.

RF: Vladimir Guerrero. There is a reason he led all outfield vote getters this year. Vlad has shown some real maturity this year, as if he could get any better, as he has driven in nearly as many runs as A-Rod with half the home runs. Vlad doesn't see a lot of juicy pitches because he doesn't have GA's power behind him anymore but he gets on base and drives in runs anyway. All that and probably the best arm in baseball.

NL
P: Brad Penny, and I already told you why

C: Russell Martin. All Star starter for a reason. The man from Montreal has been the driving force behind the Dodgers this season and plays a lot more than most catchers could ever dream of. He hits for power and average, runs so well that he may well be a 30-40 SB catcher and is on track for a gold glove.

1B: Prince Fielder. My choice for first half MVP, Cecil's kid has propelled the hapless Beermen into a contender. He crushes the ball and can field his position more than adequately. It will be fun to watch him and James Loney over the next few years

2B: Chet Utley. Utley is a star at a position that sucks in the NL about as much as third sucks in the AL. Power, average, defense. He is complete

3B: Miguel Cabrera. Sorry David Wright fans, but Cabrera wins because he hits for a much better average, has hit more round trippers doesn't have the same people hitting around him. Wright will be the best, but he isn't there yet

SS: Jose Reyes. This is probably the closest race of them all, but Reyes is simply an out of this world talent. He has all 5 tools, and is freakishly fast.

LF: Barry Bonds, and to hell with you if you don't think so. No one, and I mean no one, sees the ball better than this guy and steroids have nothing at all to do with that. Gonzo has been great for the Dodgers, but he doesn't touch the king of all hitters. He also plays defense, if 8 gold gloves didn't tell you that already.

CF: Carlos Beltran. A 5 tool player who's average is a bit down this year, he plays defense with the best of them. Center Field is, surprisingly, a touch weak in the NL this year, but Beltran is still the man.

RF: Ken Griffey Jr. Talk about back from the dead, this dude is amazing and the comeback player of the year for sure. he is pounding the ball again and still is one of the best defensive outfielders around. Playing right means less responsibility and chance of injury and he has translated that into the fountain of youth.

The Indians haven't had a great offense so far this year. It's been good, but not as good as last year. They still haven't hit stride. And C.C. hasn't needed all those runs. His ERA is a very respectable 3.50, and a lot of that came from one bad start. He's 12-2, should be 13-2, and could be 13-2 after his next start this week.

He's the best pitcher in the A.L. right now. Period.

Is that why Martinez has thrown out more runners than Pudge? No, Martinez will never be Pudge defensively, but Pudge isn't the devistating hitter Martinez is on offense. In other words, they're pretty even. Martinez is the better catcher this year.

3.50 is not 2.20. I know you love the Tribe, but Heron is pitching better than anyone this year. I say that as a fan of his team's biggest rivals, who have 2 of the best in the AL.

No, that is because no one wants to run on Pudge. Pudge is 8/30 while Martinez is 16/59.

What about the hottest team in baseball - Mariners?

What about the Brewers? I think they are the best team in baseball. Eight of their starters are home grown Milwaukee drafts. A young team with everything meshing. Loved watching them dominate the Cubs.

I don't care if the Yankees are having a crap season - A-Rod is your AL MVP.

Chase Utley is the NL MVP. Prince Fielder is a close second right now.

Give me Dan Haren in the AL and Brad Penny in the NL for pitching. Penny is pitching wicked stuff for the Dodgers. He should be 12-1, not 10-1.

I'll take Mike Scioscia for the AL and Ned Yost for the NL as top coaches.

Honorable mention - Ken Griffey Jr, Craig Biggio, and Sammy Sosa.

Sorry, no way. A guy with a lousy team, in my view, can't be MVP, simply because he didn't make his team more competitive, and make them a contender. Magglio Ordonez, Victor Martinez, David Ortiz, and Vlad Guerrero all do that this year. If the Yankees somehow climb back in it, Jeter and A-Rod would be candidates. But, with the Yanks pretty much flat-lining right now, A-Rod won't and should not be considered.

I wonder if it has to do with Ichiro not getting along with Grover in the past and them trying to resign Ichiro? Or some other underlying reason a lot of M's fans seem to think that Dudley lacks the inablity to be a good manager, and the M's might be winning despite him.

As a Mariners fan I really felt bad to see the Mariners drop off the map since 2002 hiring Bob Melvin and signing scrubs. You have to wonder if GM Bill Bavasi was the problem, CEO Howard Lincoln of Nintendo of America charman as well, Chuck Armstrong. I think personally the Front Office was defunct and didn't care about winning.

Ordonez is cooling off. There is no way he'll contine to hit the way he is. Hasn't had an RBI in 7 games and no HR in more than 10 games. Wow, he's got a high batting average right now. He had the same start for a season in 2005 and didn't finish above .300. Ordonez owes a lot to the guys batting in front of him. Guillen isn't all that bad himself.

Bavasi pretty much took the credit for the Angels 1995 shocker team (man that was painful to see what happened that year), even though the credit was really deserved by Rod Carew turning Salmon, Anderson, Snow and Edmonds into stars and turning scrubs like Jorge Fabregas into non-liabilities, not to mention Marcel Lacheman being a very underrated manager. Bavasi proceeded to meddle way too much in on field affairs and didn't spend money when he should have. He just isn't much of a GM.

To me, a DH can't be MVP. Ortiz might be an exception because of the leadership he provides, but you really need to play the field to be really valuable.
