Report: MLB Considering Alternative Sites Due to Coronavirus

MLB is considering using alternative sites for teams that are most affected by the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), according to The Wall Street Journal’s Jared Diamond. 

The league wants to vet all potential options—and they are, given the uncertain and deadly nature of the virus—but want to avoid playing in empty stadiums if possible. This tracks with the thinking of other professional sports leagues, including the NBA, which is exploring similar alternatives in the wake of the virus that has infected more than 1,000 people in the U.S. and killed at least 30.

The alternatives for MLB include playing their games at spring training facilities in Arizona or Florida and possibly moving games to cities less affected by the outbreak.

Baseball Tale: Slovakia to the majors, with a brief stop in Ireland

The tale begins in Slovakia, (homeland of Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, and thus familiar to this Hub native), travels west to Ireland for a brief time, then comes to rest in Alberta, Canada, culminating in a seventh-round selection, 216th pick overall, in the 2019 Major League Baseball amateur draft…

Adam’s English at the time was nearly nonexistent, making his coaches’ rudimentary instruction even less enlightening, but our unlikely phenom’s interest in baseball only intensified as he studied online videos of fellow pitchers David Price and Justin Verlander. (Our main aim as coaches was to get Adam to keep his fastball under control, out of concern for the safety of opposing batters.)

After a year or so in Ireland, which included two seasons with the Mariners Little League team, Adam and his family emigrated again, this time to Alberta, another hockey stronghold but also a place with a strong baseball development system.

Short story about Adam Macko, Mariners 7th round pick last year.

Mariners sign pitcher Marco Gonzales to four-year extension

The Mariners have inked their top pitcher to a multi-year contract.

Seattle and left-hander Marco Gonzales came to terms on a four-year deal with a club option for 2025, the team announced Monday. The new contract rolls into effect in 2021.

The four-year extension is worth $30 million, according to MLB insider Ken Rosenthal. The club did not reveal terms of the agreement.

“Since joining the Mariners, Marco has been a model of consistency, quietly ranking among the most productive starting pitchers in the AL,” Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said in a statement. “His presence, competitiveness, preparation and leadership make him a key part of our future.”

As he predicted, Mariners and GM Jerry Dipoto start MLB winter meetings quietly | The Seattle Times

Given the Mariners’ plan to play their young core this season, the projected 25-man roster has only minor holes that they plan to fill. Dipoto still plans to sign at least one experienced free-agent reliever, if not two, and a starting pitcher who is versatile enough to pitch out of the bullpen if/when touted prospect Justin Dunn takes over the No. 5 spot in the rotation.

“If there’s an opportunity for us to get better, to add players that we think can be here for more than just a cup of coffee, we would love to do that,” he said. “Whether it be via trade or even free agency with the bounce-back type of guys … guys coming off injury or ineffectiveness, there are other candidates out there we certainly have our eye on and we are open to it.”

Those signings could likely come in very late December to early January.

“Who knows, things move fast sometimes,” he said.

Brewers trade with Seattle for left-handed-hitting catcher Omar Narváez

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic is reporting Thursday morning that the Brewers are trading with Seattle for catcher Omar Narváez, a left-handed hitter with some pop, and three more years of contractual control.

Rosenthal did not say what the Brewers were sending the Mariners in return but Mariners beat writer Greg Johns of mlb.com is reporting that it is minor-league pitching prospect Adam Hill as well as a draft pick, presumably the Competitive Round B selection after the second round in 2020 (currently No. 70 overall) that the Brewers were assigned this week. Hill was acquired from the Mets last year in the Keon Broxton trade and went 7-9 with a 3.92 ERA in 26 games for Class A Wisconsin.

Narváez, 27, was reported to be on the trade market this winter as Seattle continues retooling its roster. He played in 132 games last season, batting .278 with a .353 on-base percentage, 22 home runs, 55 RBI and .813 OPS.

Mariners finalizing a six-year contract with first base prospect Evan White | The Seattle Times

The Mariners belief in Evan White as a player, and also a person, is taking them down a financial path that no team has ventured with a player.

MLB sources confirm a report from ESPN’s Jeff Passan that the Mariners and White have agreed to a six-year, $24 million contract with three club options. If the Mariners exercises the club options, the total amount of money in the deal could reach over $55 million.

Whilte the financial terms agreed upon, White must still take and pass an extensive physical before the deal is finalized. Sources indicate that it won’t be announced this weekend, but likely Monday at the earliest..

The Nationals won their first title. Who’s next?

When I was a kid there were two immutable truths about baseball: the Boston Red Sox were cursed and the Chicago Cubs were losers, however lovable they might be.

Four World Series titles in the bag make that Red Sox curse seem rather quaint. The Cubs’ 2016 title — and four or five straight years with them considered rich and powerful contenders — put that lovable loser thing to rest. Time marches on and the stuff you believed about the world when you were a kid becomes inoperative as you grow older.

Young baseball fans today carry with them a different set of assumptions about who are baseball’s haves and who are baseball’s have-nots. To them the Sox and Cubs are and always have been alpha teams. Those powerful Braves and Indians teams from the 90s are only vague memories. The Dodgers have replaced the Braves as that great regular season club that can’t seem to get over the hump. And, of course, there are a handful of losers, some lovable, some not-so-lovable, that seem destined to never win it all.

Last night’s win took the Nationals out of that category. Their October surge — complete with five wins in elimination games in which they trailed at some point — forever vanquished the narrative about how they had never won a postseason series and kicked the memory of those 90-100-loss Nats teams from the first several years of their existence into a deep, deep hole.

A consideration of the chances that the six teams that have never won the World Series have of getting out of that club.

Woeful Mariners now only team never to reach World Series

SEATTLE (AP) — And then there was one.

The Washington Nationals are off to the World Series for the first time in franchise history after sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night, becoming the final National League team to reach the Fall Classic and leaving a single team with the distinction of never playing for a title.

Congratulations, Seattle Mariners. Not only do you have the longest playoff drought in professional sports, but you are now the only team that hasn’t been to a World Series.

Since the Mariners came into existence in 1977, there has been a void. Despite lineups that included the likes of Ken Griffey Jr., Ichiro Suzuki, Randy Johnson, Edgar Martinez and Alex Rodriguez, they have just four playoff appearances in their history, all coming between 1995 and 2001.

So, how does have only one team never make the World Series compare with the other major sports leagues and their championships?

Mariners Unveil Nearly $30 Million In Ballpark Improvements For T-Mobile Park

The infrastructure improvements for 2020 will include the continued replacement of roof wheels, painting, plumbing, and other basic infrastructure work; replacement of the ballpark’s original, now 20-year-old sound system; replacing their old, outdated and functionally unsound point-of-sale system to improve the fan experience at concession stands, and; ADA fan improvements.

But the aspects of most interest will be the $9.24 million in fan amenity upgrades for 2020 required by the lease agreement with the PFD…..

To start, the Left Field Gate will be expanded to add 15 additional points of entry for fans and replace the existing Left Field ticket office with a new concession area that will connect to The ‘Pen, the ballparks key standing room-only patio gathering area in centerfield. The addition has been done to improve ingress into the ballpark as things such metal detectors have been added since the ballpark opened two decades ago.

Up at the “Lookout Landing” area that wraps around the outside of the suites and 200 level, the club is creating a new bar and fan/group entertainment space that will be situated above the left field foul pole on the View Level. According to the Mariners, the style of the area is to “remind one of a casual backyard experience” with bench seating and picnic tables. As an additional revenue source, the location will be made available for sale to groups during games. When the space is not booked, it will be open to all fans when not in use for group events.”

Bronx Banter: DeRosa: Leave the Gun. Take the Cannoli.

Oh, my good goodness gracious! Of all the dramatic things I’ve ever seen. Clemenza standing right in…the way of a Montero/Pineda thought!

So when I heard Jesus Montero was traded for Michael Pineda, I felt like we were trading a neck for a necktie. Sure, the tie is important, but without the neck, what’s the point?

Even without the catching, I’ll take Montero’s simple, solid bat over the complex musculature of Pineda’s throwing arm. You can watch Montero hit every game, all season long. There’s no better way to interface with a team than through a star hitter, especially for a young fan, because he’s always in the lineup.

I understand that having Pineda in the rotation probably makes the 2012 Yankees a better team than they would have been with Montero as the DH. But in 2013? And 2014?

Arod and Teixeira are already fractions of what they once were and they will be declining in the lineup for years to come. The Yankees have one big hitter in his prime, Cano, who is fierce but not flawless. You don’t have to squint too hard to see a Yankee team desperate for hitting.

The more I think about the trade, the more comfortable I am with Cashman’s logic and his vision. But I am firmly on the Montero side of the debate. It boils down to this: if they both become stars, I’d want Montero to be a Yankee.

Oakland manager Melvin excited about Japan series

The Athletics and Seattle Mariners open the regular season with a two-game series at Tokyo Dome on March 28-29. Many hoped the series would feature a showdown between Matsui and countryman Ichiro Suzuki, but Melvin said the A’s likely wont be re-signing the 37-year-old free agent Matsui.

“Matsui was a great fit for us last year and we all loved having him on our team,’’ Melvin said at a press conference on Monday to promote the series. “But this year it doesn’t look like a fit for us based on the personnel we have going forward.’‘

...Suzuki also had a down season in 2011. For the first time in his career, He failed to reach 200 hits - finishing with 184 - and hit a career-worst .272. Other numbers were lower too, including on-base percentage, infield hits and home runs, while he struck out a career-high 69 times.

Former Seattle star Ken Griffey Jr., who now serves as a special consultant to the Mariners, said he expects Suzuki to bounce back this season.

“Ichiro is going to be fine, you can ask these two guys (Melvin, Wedge) if a guy had 184 hits they wouldn’t be complaining,’’ Griffey said. “But you are looking at a guy who is a special athlete. He had one hiccup in his career and come this time next year we won’t even be talking about this. He is going to come into this season determined and with a little fire.’‘

Hiccup?...That was a freakin’ Dave McNally tally if ever!

Goldman: The Montero-Pineda Trade: Rotation Upgrade at a Sustainable Cost

Or as Barnald points out…“But this is the part of the upgrade that scares me!”

Pineda’s fastball sits around 95 and goes higher, and he has a swing-and-miss slider to go with it. There is also a changeup, but it’s notional and—well, you know all of this stuff if you’ve been on line at all today. Here are the negatives you’re going to hear about:

• He dominated right-handed hitters, but the lack of a good change means that lefties hit, well, still not well, but better.
• His ERA was 2.92 in pitcher-friendly Safeco, 4.40 on the road.
• His first-half ERA was 3.03, his second-half ERA was 5.12.
• He has fly-ball tendencies, which is a problem in Yankee Stadium.
• Batters hit .261 on balls in play, and such things don’t last.
• They could have gotten Cliff Lee or Felix Hernandez for him.
• He could get hurt.
• He cost the Yankees Jesus Montero, a very fine young hitter.

Sorry, fans: No televised Mariners games for most of Alaska

Yeah, but can’t you see Moscow Tornados games from Alaska?

Thanks to a media contract dispute and Major League Baseball’s infuriating television blackout zones, Seattle Mariners fans who live in Alaska will have an extremely difficult time watching live games played by their favorite team next season.

Alaska’s largest cable provider, GCI, decided not to renew its contract with Root Sports, the MLB-licensed “Regional Sports Network” that exclusively televises the majority of games in a Seattle Mariners season, and instead has signed up with MLB Network.

GCI told the trade publication Multichannel News that Root Sports was asking for too much of a price hike to renew the contract. Root has countered by blaming GCI and telling people who are upset to switch their service to a competitor.

That decision should please non-Mariners fans because MLB Network features a huge variety of games and other content. But the problem for Mariners fans (aside from the team finishing above .500 just twice in the last eight years) is that MLB Network does not show Mariners games in Alaska due to its regional blackout policy.

On balance, Bud Selig has been good for baseball

I bring all this up because word came out this week that Selig, who has said he would retire at the end of this year, will be offered a contract extension at the owners meetings this week. And by all accounts, he’ll take it, adding at least two more years to his tenure as commissioner. He’s been on the job since 1992, and two more seasons would take Selig to his 80th birthday.

Blasts from the Past

With the Hall of Fame results being announced today, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and dig up some old scouting reports from the Baseball America archives on some of the ballot’s notable candidates. . .

8. Barry Larkin, ss, 21, 5-11, 175, R-R
Larkin looked right at home in AA, hitting .267 for Vermont. He didn’t show power (one home run in 255 at-bats), but that will come. The key for him was just getting his feet on the ground, and he was not overpowered by the high level of competition (21 strikeouts in 255 at-bats). He will have good power for a shortstop.

6. Edgar Martinez, 3b, 25, 5-11, 175, R-R
Martinez’s discipline will produce runs. He’s averaged 70 RBIs the last four years. In the field, he’s solid, with good reactions and the soft hands of a middle infielder.

Drayer: Why you do not trade Felix Hernandez right now

But deal Michael Pineda instead. (calls Schick Shadel Hospital…confirms bed for evening)

Michael Pineda does not just step into the ace role. It took Felix almost four years to turn into what we see today.

Pineda in the second half of the season was hardly dominating. Yes, they were keeping his pitch counts down, but do yourself a favor and go look at his post All-Star numbers. What is most disturbing is that Pineda was focused on having an even better second half than first. He told me after the All-Star Game that is what he would be most proud of. If he could finish strong knowing that hitters had seen him, Hernandez would consider that to be as big as winning the Rookie of the Year Award. He went in the other direction. All that said, Pineda has a great chance to turn into an ace, it is just going to take time. Felix is there and is showing no sign of slowing down.

...If I am trading pitching, I am trading Pineda. Why? Because he is replaceable. There is a very good chance that by the end of next season Danny Hultzen could be Michael Pineda on the hill in regards to development, path, and what he brings to the rotation. If you trade Felix no one is close to being what he is, an established ace who has suffered through the growing pains, who has learned the league and is committed to his team and community. That is what he is now and what he should be for some time to come.

I am not saying you don’t listen to offers. I am saying you darn well better know what you have, both now and potentially in the future before you make a move. I believe Zduriencik does and that is why he says he will not trade Felix.

Stone: Is a “blatant money grab” the only way Prince Fielder comes to Seattle?

No…there’s also the frolicky Seattle Steampunk Exhibition Ball coming up!

Ken Rosenthal of FOX wrote something today that I found very interesting, and frankly a little irritating. But definitely worthy of discussion. I have a funny feeling this will inspire a lot of reaction.

The story, basically, is about how the Cubs make much more sense for Fielder than the Mariners because the M’s have nothing to offer Fielder. The only possible reason Fielder would choose Seattle over the Cubs is “a blatant money grab,’’ Rosenthal concludes.

...I don’t want to sound like a Mariners honk. Their organization is rife with problems, and has a recent history of extremely poor decision making. They’ve dug themselves a tremendous hole that makes luring free agents even more difficult than it inherently is by mere virtue of geography. But couldn’t Fielder envision himself being part of a turnaround that reverts Seattle back to being the vibrant baseball town it once was? If Prince was still talking to his dad, Cecil, he could ask him about how it used to be in 1995 and 1997—and that was before Safeco Field went up.

Yes, money will be a huge factor with Fielder, as with every free agent. The Mariners would have to swallow hard and pay an exorbinant amount of dough for a lot of years to land Fielder. But if he led a renaissance of the team that led to contention, a full stadium, and maybe playoffs and even championships down the road, would anyone call it a “money grab” then?

If Braun’s positive PED test is upheld, baseball writers should demand re-vote for NL MVP

Geoff Baker…proving that the World Anti-Dope Agency is, in fact, not working!

If it creates a headache for MLB, too bad. If it embarrasses the player, well, maybe they’ll think twice the next time before going down that road.

Hey, if this could in any way serve as a deterrent to players taking PEDs, then MLB and the union should be all for it. It’s not really their call anyway. The BBWAA will be the one deciding the rules for its own awards.

Again, if Braun wins on appeal, he can keep the MVP award.

But even if he does win, the BBWAA should immediately inform baseball officials that this will be the rule going forward. Anyone who tests positive before voting results are announced will be subjected to a re-vote.

It’s bad enough voters are being asked to judge the Hall of Fame legacies of long-retired players suspected of boosting their performance outside the rules. They shouldn’t have to become defacto conspirators with Major League Baseball in giving awards out to current players that top officials knew ahead of time were about to be taken down by scandal.

Wedge ‘not sure’ if Ichiro will still lead off

Wedge indicated on Tuesday in his meeting with the media at the Winter Meetings that Ichiro’s role could indeed be changing after 11 seasons almost exclusively as the club’s leadoff hitter.

“I’m still not sure where I’m going to hit him in the order, and I want him to understand that,” Wedge said. “Because ultimately I’m going to do what is best for our club. I’m going to put out the best nine in the order I see fit to score as many runs as we can.

“If I feel like that is him leading off, then that’s what we’re going to do. If I feel like that’s him hitting in the three-hole, then that’s what I’m going to do. If it’s him hitting somewhere else, then that’s what I’m going to do.”

Wedge said that based on a conversation he had with Ichiro last year, the 38-year-old will be open to any change.

“He told me last year in the middle of the season that he wants to do whatever is best for the ballclub and he wants me to do whatever I feel is best for the ballclub,” Wedge said. “I take him at his word, and that’s what I’m going to do. He’s been tremendous—he’s been communicative with me, and I appreciate that. We’re looking to build a winner and championship club, here and that’s my entire focus.”

Thanks to Benny.

As everyone knows, statheads are a monolithic collection of cellar-dwelling nerds working in unison to craft a reality that conforms with a worldview that only values things which can be quantified. Every reporter who belongs to the BBWAA knows this as fact and is compelled by their association to thwart the stathead aims.

Or, Geoff Baker shouldn’t be making blanket accusations and, instead, should directly address the people whose claims he disagrees with.
