  • Episode 178 - Vin Scully, The Voice of Baseball
    16 August 2022

    Mark is back and just in time to talk about a pitcher coming out of retirement, some jersey number oddities, a great Rickey Henderson story told by Will Clark and a debut by a recent Hall of Famer. Then, in this week’s main segment, we remember the incomparable Vin Scully. He was the voice of baseball to many growing up and to Dodger fans for over 60 years. He covered some of the most memorable games, baseball and others. We will listen to some of his most famous calls and curious stories. We rip some more 2003 Topps for this week’s version of Wax Pack Heroes.

  • Astros: Did Dusty Baker Waste Jose Urquidy's Quality Start?
    16 August 2022

    Eric and Brett discuss the game that started with Jose Urquidy dominating the White Sox through 7 2/3 innings pitched, but Dusty Baker pulled him in favor of Rafael Montero. The White Sox would go on to score 4 in the bottom half of the 8th inning.

  • Philadelphia Phillies vs Cincinnati Reds – August 16, 2022
    16 August 2022

    T.J. Zeuch will be looking to rebound from his 2022 debut tonight as the Cincinnati Reds aim to even the series up against the Philadelphia Phillies tonight after dropping the series opener on Monday night. Kyle Gibson will be the Phillies starter tonight as he hopes to help give Philadelphia a guaranteed series win. First pitch is set for 6:40pm.

    Starting Lineups

    Here are the lineups for tonight’s contest:

    Philadelphia Phillies
    Cincinnati Reds
    Bryson Stott – SS Jake Fraley – DH
    Rhys Hoskins – DH Jonathan India – 2B
    Alec Bohm – 3B Kyle Farmer – 3B
    Darick Hall – 1B Joey Votto – 1B
    Nick Castellanos – RF Albert Almora Jr. – CF
    Jean Segura – 2B Aristides Aquino – RF
    Brandon Marsh – CF TJ Friedl – LF
    Garrett Stubbs – C Jose Barrero – SS
    Matt Vierling – LF Michael Papierski – C
    Kyle Gibson – SP T.J. Zeuch – SP

    Jonathan India is back in the lineup and he’s hitting second for the first time in his career. Almost all of his playing time has come out of the leadoff spot, with one plate appearance in the 3rd and 5th spots, then between 10-59 plate appearances in the spots between 6th and 9th in the lineup.

    Starting Pitchers
    Pitcher IP ERA WHIP BB K
    T.J. Zeuch 4.0 13.50 2.00 2 4
    Kyle Gibson 121.2 4.29 1.18 34 91
    Links: T.J. Zeuch’s Stats | Kyle Gibson’s Stats

    T.J. Zeuch

    The first start in the big leagues this season for T.J. Zeuch didn’t go well. He gave up six runs on six hits, two walks, two hit batters, and a home run in 4.0 innings as the Reds got blown out by the Mets 10-2 last week.

    In his time in the minors this season left-handed hitters have crushed him. In limited action in the big leagues, lefties have hit .329/.440/.488 against him. During his time in the minors this season he pitched solidly against righties, and in the majors in his career they’ve hit .239/.298/.485 against him – showing plenty of power, but not a ton of hitting or walking.

    Splits (Triple-A)

    Usage 58.0% 14.0% 20.6% 7.3%

    Kyle Gibson

    After a rough start on July 2nd where he allowed four home runs, Kyle Gibson has been quite good of late. In the six starts since he’s posted a 2.89 ERA while allowing just two home runs in 37.1 innings.

    His splits are interesting. Not shown below are his home and road splits where he’s got a higher ERA on the road (4.73 to 4.03) despite allowing far more home runs at home. What is shown below is that while the results in the end wind up similar against both righties and lefties, he gets there differently. Lefties walk more often and make far more contact, but they also hit for a lower average by 20 points – which is also the difference in the slugging percentage.

    News and Notes TJ Friedl in, Donovan Solano out

    The Reds called up TJ Friedl this afternoon to take the spot of Donovan Solano on the roster after he was placed on the paternity list. Friedl was then put right into the starting lineup.

  • Reds call up TJ Friedl, place Donovan Solano on the paternity list
    16 August 2022

    The Cincinnati Reds made a set of roster moves on Tuesday afternoon. The Solano family is welcoming a new addition to the crew and as such Donovan Solano was placed on the paternity list. Taking his place on the roster will be outfielder TJ Friedl.

    TJ Friedl will be returning to the big leagues once again. He’s spent time going back-and-forth between Triple-A Louisville and Cincinnati. In his 29 games this season with the Reds he’s picked up 100 plate appearances and hit .200/.250/.289. Since his last trip down to the minors, Friedl has been on fire for Louisville. He’s played in 40 games and has hit .315/.385/.504 with 6 doubles, 3 triples, 4 home runs, 13 walks, and 10 stolen bases. Strangely enough, he only has 10 stolen bases in Louisville on the year and they’ve all come since June 21st.

    While he’s in Cincinnati, Friedl will represent a good option off of the bench as a pinch runner. He’s also a good defender if the team needs to go down that road. While he hasn’t done much of it in the big leagues, he’s also an excellent bunter if the situation calls for that.

    Reds land two prospects in ESPN’s Top 50 list

    Kiley McDaniel, former scout and Atlanta Braves front office employee turned prospect analyst extraordinaire released his updated Top 50 Prospect List at ESPN this afternoon. Only two Cincinnati Reds prospects made the list ($$). Elly De La Cruz is the highest rated Red on the list, coming in at #20 on the list. De La Cruz is hitting .298/.351/.602 with 36 stolen bases in 93 games played between High-A Dayton and Double-A Chattanooga.

    The other Reds prospect to make the list is also a shortstop, but perhaps not the one you expected. Edwin Arroyo, who is currently playing in Single-A Daytona, came in at #36 on the list. He’s hitting .316/.385/.514 with 21 steals in 87 games between three stops in the Mariners and Reds organization.

  • Where have the Cincinnati Reds gone?
    16 August 2022

    The Cincinnati Reds spent the trade deadline trying to, and largely succeeding in moving veteran players in trades to acquire younger players with a lot of team control. They did something similar this spring, too. Of course they began it last winter by waiving Wade Miley and trading Tucker Barnhart. Luis Castillo, Sonny Gray, Tyler Mahle, Jesse Winker, Eugenio Suarez, Tyler Naquin, Amir Garrett, Tommy Pham, Brandon Drury – all gone via trade.

    That’s nearly enough players gone in less than 12 months via trade or release to fill out an every day lineup and most of a rotation. On top of all of that, injuries have decimated any amount of depth that the team may have had at this point. Hunter Greene, Jeff Hoffman, Vladimir Gutierrez, Art Warren, Tony Santillan, Justin Wilson, Daniel Duarte, Lucas Sims, Tejay Antone, Connor Overton, Robert Dugger – those are just the PITCHERS that are currently on the injured list.

    To say that it’s been a rough year for the Reds is an understatement. Of course, you already knew that. The team is 45-69 on the season, a half-game ahead of the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates for last place in the division.

    When you look at the current roster there are a few guys that everyone knows. You’ve still got your Joey Votto and Jonathan India. Beyond that, would any fan in Kansas City recognize a single player that the Reds run onto the field on a regular basis (who wasn’t a Royal at some point, that is)?

    T.J. Zeuch was released by the Cardinals while he was in Triple-A in May. Now he’s in the starting rotation for the Reds.  Mike Minor just picked up another loss last night, falling to 1-10 on the season with a 6.31 ERA in 13 starts. Justin Dunn has made two starts in the big leagues in the last 14 months, both with the Reds and they’ve not exactly gone well (8.64 ERA) after he struggled in Triple-A (6.92 ERA in seven starts).

    The bullpen is a disaster that somehow has left David Bell continuously running Hunter Strickland out to the mound in close and late situations. He’s pitched in 48 games and for only four of them has the game ended and his ERA on the season was below 5.00. It’s currently 5.56. Outside of Alexis Diaz and Reiver Sanmartin (1.01 ERA in 24 games as a reliever), that essentially describes the rest of the bullpen, too.

    There are potentially some players that are on the active roster who could potentially be a part of the next winning team for the Reds. Pitchers Nick Lodolo, Graham Ashcraft, and Alexis Diaz are all rookies in their first season. Jonathan India is in his second season and Jose Barrero is still considered a rookie even though he’s in part of a 3rd season at the big league level could still be around in a few years when the current “rebuild”.

    There are a few other guys on the injured list – Tyler Stephenson, Hunter Greene, Tejay Antone, Tony Santillan – who could be around, but they just aren’t on the field right now.

    It wasn’t long ago that the fans of Cincinnati went through something similar. The 2016-2018 rebuild wasn’t long ago. Many of the players from those years are gone and forgotten. Plenty of the “future building blocks” didn’t work out for one reason or another. Maybe this time it will be different. Right now, turning on a Reds game, you don’t see a lot of the hope for the future on the field. Injuries play a factor there, but a lot of it is simply that the future the team seems to be building toward just isn’t close to being ready. Triple-A is has three of the organization’s Top 25 prospects. Double-A is loaded, featuring nine of the top 25 prospects in the organization, but the results are a bit of a mixed bag there currently.

    In a perfect scenario, everyone currently on the 40-man roster can remain (or get and then remain) healthy for 2023 and 2024, and the guys currently in Double-A and Triple-A pan out for the most part and don’t have many hiccups in the early big league career and step in and can perform. That would bring the Reds to a more competitive mode sooner rather than later.

    There’s a lot of hope in that scenario. For now, when you turn on your television each night and tune into the Cincinnati Reds game, many are left asking the question: Where have the Cincinnati Reds gone? The answer is mostly Seattle and Minnesota.

  • Red Sox Designate Yolmer Sanchez For Assignment
    16 August 2022

    The Red Sox have designated infielder Yolmer Sanchez for assignment, reports Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe (Twitter link). The team has yet to formally announce the move, but it’ll come as part of series of transactions that also includes the activation of utilitymen Enrique Hernandez and Rob Refsnyder, per Abraham.

    Sanchez, 30, has been with the Red Sox since being selected to the big league roster on July 22. A former Gold Glove winner and regular with the White Sox, he’s seen his offensive output crater in recent years, though never quite to the extent it has so far in Boston. It’s a tiny sample, just 14 games, but Sanchez is just 4-for-37 with seven walks (11.4%), 13 strikeouts (29.5%) and zero extra-base hits through 44 trips to the plate — resulting in a dismal .108/.214/.108 batting line on the year.

    Sanchez’s peak years with the bat came in 2017-18 in Chicago, when he posted a combined .253/.312/.390 batting line while playing second base on a near-everyday basis. Granted, even that career-best production was about nine percent worse than league-average, by measure of wRC+, but for a player with Sanchez’s speed and defensive skills, that was plenty to make him a solid regular at second base. His line dipped to .252/.318/.321 in 2019, but Sanchez also won a Gold Glove that year, so the Sox likely didn’t mind the tepid output at the plate.

    In the time since winning that Gold Glove, though, Sanchez has barely seen the Majors. He logged just 21 plate appearances with the ChiSox during the shortened 2020 season and spent the 2021 season with the Braves’ Triple-A affiliate where he posted a grisly .216/.309/.352 line in 355 plate appearances. Things were going much better for Sanchez with Boston’s Triple-A club, for whom he’d turned in a .247/.377/.413 line in 305 trips to the plate.

    Now that the trade deadline has passed, the only outcome for players who are designated for assignment is to be placed on outright waivers or release waivers. Sanchez has enough service time to reject an outright assignment to the minors if he goes unclaimed.

  • South Side Sox Player of the Week (August 7-13): Michael Kopech
    16 August 2022
    Mitch Ransdell/South Side Sox

    Kopey fireballs through an attempted no-hitter, as the milquetoast White Sox mix up some moxie in a hometown sweep

    The White Sox clicked into gear this week, finally generating some memorable moments. Fireball starter Kopech, his ponytail soaring in the Chicago breeze, torched the Tigers through six no-hit innings last week.

    In his most dominant start of the season, the 26-year-old pitcher struck out 11 batters, a career high.

    Kopech is still on a tight leash following his Tommy John surgery in 2019, which led skipper La Russa to yank him out of the game, no-hitter intact. The shutout was ensured by the erratic but skilled Sox bullpen, and a timely two-run single by Andrew Vaughn buttoned up the 2-0 victory.

    The White Sox went on to sweep the Tigers, the team’s first trifecta since early July. With most teams, that’s not too much to ask for. But the South Siders have struggled to put together any semblance of last season’s chemistry, so it’s the little shining moments that stand out against the bland backdrop.

    Kopech’s recovery, growth, and success have been a heaping fistful of those little victories.

    Kendall Graveman (-30.6)
    Liam Hendriks (-27.8)
    Tim Anderson (-23.8)
    Joe Kelly (-22.4)
    Yoán Moncada (-21.1)
    Gavin Sheets (-18.7)

    The race here might really be for second place, as Michael Kopech, Johnny Cueto and Andrew Vaughn are all making legit runs for runner-up. On the flip side, likewise little movement in Cold Cats, but with every week it seems likelier our first non-player (La Russa) might win it all.

    Writer Standings

    The Indianapolis Field Office team of Chrystal O’Keefe and Joe Resis remain 1-2 in the standings, with Krestel and Sanders also hungry. O’Keefe just keeps winning, now a season-high 14 over. Poor Kristina, sinking and now 10 under. The good news for tonight’s coverage: It’s a Resis-O’Keefe joint, with Kristina subbing out her coverage to go to the game in person!

  • Today in White Sox History: August 16
    16 August 2022
    On this day 33 years ago, White Sox farmhand Tom Drees threw his third no-no... of the season. | Vancouver Canadians

    No no, not one, not two, but three no-nos

    1927

    Babe Ruth hit the first rooftop home run in Comiskey Park history, when he blasted a shot off of Tommy Thomas. The ball was estimated to have gone 474 feet. The Yankees won, 8-1. Ruth’s home run came in the fifth inning, and was a solo shot.

    (In a sad coincidence, exactly 21 years later, Ruth passed away from throat cancer.)

    1989

    Vancouver Canadians southpaw Tom Drees threw his third no-hitter of the Triple-A season, in a 5-0 win over Las Vegas. The gem was a seven-inning doubleheader opener, joining a 1-0, nine-inning no-hitter on May 23 over the Calgary Cannons and a second consecutive no-hitter on May 28, a 1-0, seven-inning win vs. the Edmonton Trappers.

    The 26-year-old went 12-11 with a 3.37 ERA in 1989 while pitching an entire year in the Canadians rotation. Three of his four complete games were no-hitters, and in his other 145 1⁄3, non no-hitter innings, he allowed 142 hits. Speaking to how stacked the White Sox rotation was in the early 1990s, Drees spent essentially three full seasons (1989-91) in the Vancouver rotation without advance.

    Drees only reached the majors briefly, in 1991, pitching 7 1⁄3 innings for the White Sox to a 12.27 ERA and -0.3 WAR.

    2011

    In an 8-7, 14-inning win over Cleveland at U.S. Cellular Field, the White Sox hit five triples. That was their most in a single game since Sept. 17, 1920, when they got six against the Yankees. Alejandro De Aza had two and Alexei Ramírez, Tyler Flowers and Alex Rios got the other three.

    The Sox won the game on a Juan Pierre single in the 14th inning.

    2017

    White Sox outfielder Leury García homered on the first pitch of the game at Dodger Stadium, off of Yu Darvish. It marked the second straight game the Sox leadoff man homered on the game’s first delivery. The night before, shortstop Tim Anderson did it off of Alex Wood. It was the first time this ever happened in franchise history.

    2020

    Tthe White Sox tied the major league record by hitting four consecutive home runs. It happened in the fifth inning at home, in a 7-2 win over the Cardinals and pitcher Roel Ramirez. The four home runs were hit by Yoán Moncada, Yasmani Grandal, José Abreu and Eloy Jiménez. It was the second time in franchise history the White Sox have hit four straight homers. This feat had last taken place 12 years earlier (yes, nearly to the day), on Aug. 14, 2008, against the Royals, when Jim Thome, Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramírez and Juan Uribe did the honors.

    It marked the 10th time an MLB team has hit four straight home runs in a game. It was also the first time in MLB history that three Cuban-born players (in this case Moncada, Grandal and Abreu) went back-to-back-to-back, or that four Latin-born players had homered consecutively.

  • Top 5 Pirates Prospect Performers
    16 August 2022

    8-2-22/8-12-22/8-16-22 By Craig W. Toth (aka @BucsBasement on Twitter)

    420….No, not the day or time that first popped into your head. This was the attendance for the Sunday Matinee attended by myself and the family a couple of days ago at LECOM Park-I still call it McKechnie Field; sometimes by accident. And, if I am being honest 420 might seem a little generous, as it felt like the 10 of us made up half the crowd.

    Every kid got at least one ball, one got a pair of batting gloves from Bubba Chandler and several of them got autographs-from Jase Bowen to Sergio Campana, to Integrated Baseball Performance Coach Casey Harms. Hell, even Marty The Marauder got in on the fun.

    As we walked around the each staff member told us their stories; of how they landed in Brandenton, why they chose to say, and of course their love of baseball. One particular gentleman paid enough attention to know our entire group was at our seats, in order to preserve the memory.

    Then after the game we all waited around to get a picture with Marauders Broadcaster Spenser Smith, to properly cap off the experience.

    How did I know this was a great time, not just for me, but all the kiddos we crammed into the party bus for the ride from Madeira Beach to Bradenton?

    Well, the next morning each and every one of them was still talking about; in awe of what that had experienced.

    Just like I was in awe of the players on both sides; that poured everything they had onto the baseball field that afternoon. With a crowd no larger than some high school games I have witnessed. Their professional careers on the line. Playing a game that we all love.

    Week of 7-26 to 7-31

    1) Jase Bowen-2B/OF/DH (Bradenton)

    Moved into MLB Pipeline’s Top 30 Pirates Prospects with the graduation of outfielder Cal Mitchell, Bowen has been on a tear. Over the past month, 24 games and 107 plate appearances, the Pirates former 11th Round Pick-and Michigan State Wide Receiver Commit-is slashing .309/.393/.553 with 5 homers, 11 total extra base hits and a 169 wRC+.

    @Jase_bowen32 coming through for me and the family! #LetsGoBucs pic.twitter.com/HNyZDbIx8R

    — Minor League Baseball (@MiLB) July 31, 2022

    2) Endy Rodriguez-C/OF/2B (Greensboro)

    Not many Pirates Minor Leaguers have been able to duplicate what Rodriguez is doing with the bat.

    Currently riding a 27 game on-base streak-during which he batting .383, with a 1.234 OPS, 8 homers and a 21K to 13BB-ratio-Rodriguez is looking to shoot up the prospect rankings; as well as through the rest of the Pirates System.

    Endy Rodríguez’s swing looks quieter, more seamless with the closed stance. he’s also made a nice DP turn as tonight’s second baseman pic.twitter.com/ROZ0dliB0o

    — Ben Spanier (@b_span2) July 28, 2022

    3) Dariel Lopez-3B/SS

    Lopez-like Bowen-also entered the Pirates Top 30 with Oneil Cruz’s graduation. And, like Endy he has streak of his own; a 14 game hitting streak, that would be 28 if it wasn’t for an 0 for 5 game back on July 12th.

    Since June 25th-the day the streak would have started, he has been slashing .356/.379/.636 with 9 homers and a 166 wRC+.

    4) Jauri Custodio-OF (FCL/Bradenton)

    Originally signed by the Colorado Rockies for $150,000, Custodio eventually had his contract voided when a severe bone bruise was discovered on his entrance physical.

    Later the Pirates would sign him in 2019 and immediately send him to the DSL. During his 17 and 19 year-old seasons-with 2020 being lost to the pandemic, the young Dominican outfielder would slash .314/.370/.456 with 5 homers and 21 total extra base hits.

    Then to start this season he landed in the FCL; where in 15 games and 50 plate appearances he batted .357 with an 1.198 OPS and 2 long balls. Ultimately promoted to the Low-A Marauders just this past week, Custodio went 3 for 7 in two games played.

    5) Po-Yu Chen-RHP (Bradenton)

    Part of me may be a little biased since I saw him pitch in person, but man can Chen really pull the string on his curveball.

    Across 7 scoreless, one hit innings this past Sunday, he struck out 5 and only walked one; improving his ERA to 4.33 and his WHIP to 1.16. On the year he has struck out 86 batters and walked 29 in an even 79 innings of work.

    Po-Yu Chen has been dealing. 1 hit, 1 walk and 5 strikeouts through 6. @YoungBucsPIT #LetsGoBucs pic.twitter.com/7eY5kI6EsQ

    — Bucs In The Basement (@BucsBasement) July 31, 2022

    Bonus: Tucupita Marcano-2B/SS/OF (Indianapolis/Pittsburgh)

    Yes, I understand that everyone knows by now that Marcano was promoted to the Pirates on August 3rd; however, I’m not sure everyone is aware that he had been slashing .362/.433/.500 with a 14.9% K to 11.9% BB and a 152 wRC+ during his most recent stint in Indianapolis.

    That one found the sweet spot. pic.twitter.com/m9BJeXQahe

    — Indianapolis Indians (@indyindians) July 24, 2022
    Week of 8-2 to 8-7

    For the majority of this week I was still on vacation with the family in sunny Florida, so I didn’t get to watch any of the Pirates Minor League games in real time; forcing myself to play catch-up over the past several days.

    Although we did get to take in a game between the Tampa Tarpons and the Clearwater Thresher on Tuesday night, so not all was lost.

    Now all I have to do is get back up to speed for the games this week.

    Narrarator: He did not catchup on this week’s games on time while trying to complete analysis for the previous weeks 12 players (two bonuses).

    1) J.C. Flowers-RHP (Altoona)

    Over this past week, the former Florida State Outfielder turned starter-and now reliever-made two appearances, totaling 5.1 innings. In these two short-long relief outings-he allowed one earned run on 3 hits, while striking out 6 and walking a lone Seawolf.

    On the year he has posted a 2.89 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP with 53 strikeouts and 23 walks in 62.1 innings out of the bullpen; or, twice as an opener.

    . @JCFlowers_3 slams the door shut and we pick up the extra-inning win! pic.twitter.com/hKG6RNdFqk

    — Altoona Curve (@AltoonaCurve) July 24, 2022

    2) Cody Bolton-RHP (Indianapolis)

    Ever since Bolton reached 5 innings and 91 pitches back on June 2nd, he has regularly been used as an opener and long reliever/piggyback starter.

    As most of you will remember Bolton had not pitched in a professional game in the past two years, so it is no surprise that the Pirates Development Team took their foot of the gas concerning this still young-only 24 year-old-righty.

    During this past week he pitched only 3.2 innings in two appearances; not allowing a run in either. He also did not walk a single batter, while striking out 3.

    On the season he had a 2.75 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, a .193 AVG Against and 54 strike outs to an somewhat uncomfortably high 30 walks.

    3) Tyler Samaniego-LHP (Altoona)

    Talk about a breath of fresh air during the 2022 Minor League Baseball Season.

    Over his last 4 appearances, across 6.2 innings, the former Jaguar of South Alabama has not allowed a run, given up only two hits, walked 2 and struck out 4.

    For the year he has a combined 1.82 ERA and .78 WHIP across High-A Greensboro and Double-A Altoona.

    4) Andres SilveraRHP (DSL)

    Signed by the Pirates at 16 years young out of David, Panama, in January of 2021; Silvera made his professional debut 5 days before his 17th Birthday that same year.

    Still barely 18 years old, he has a .79 ERA and a .73 WHIP, with 41 strikeouts and only 6 walks in 34.1 innings of work.

    5) Dariel Lopez/Endy Rodriguez

    Over the past couple months of the season, I’m not sure I could I come up with a hotter duo in the Pirates Farm System-or even all of MiLB-than Lopez and Rodriguez.

    Since June 1st, Lopez is slashing .332/.359/.559 with 13 homers and 23 total extra base hits. Although-as always-the walk to strikeout rate remains a concern as is at 4.6% to 26% on the season.

    This is why I’m so excited about Dariel Lopez. The raw power at just 20 years old. Look how he goes and gets that pitch. He’s turning on more now, and keeping the power. Last year in Bradenton he probably goes the other way with that #LetsGoBucs pic.twitter.com/oxGNZMtVqy

    As far as Rodriguez is concerned, he has slashed .331/.433/.610 with 10 bombs and 27 extra base hits during that same time frame. Ultimately earning a call-up to Double-A Altoona on August 9th.

    Bonus: Roansy Contreras-RHP (Indianapolis)

    This will not devolve into a discussion concerning service manipulation, Super 2, development or innings management. It is just glimpse at his stats plain and simple.

    Over his last 3 starts-2 IP, 3 IP and 4 IP-Contreras has a 3.00 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, 16 strikeouts and only one walk.

    There you have it! My Top 5 Pirates Prospect Performers for the last two-17th and 18th-weeks of 2022.

    Now remember, let me know I missed, who your Top 5 is and be sure check back each and every Tuesday (or Wednesday Night/Thursday Morning) hopefully-during the Minor League Baseball Season!

    Being behind on games isn’t alway a bad thing. I mean who doesn’t like binge watching baseball for a few days on end; making predictions concerning performances, and seeing how they play out hours later, instead of days or weeks.

    Also, if you were wondering, I make my lists for each week, as soon as the “Sunday” games are over; and before I start the next week. Which is why you may see a guy who ended up having a poor week, following the one(s) I was judging him on.

    It keeps things realistic, and it keeps me honest.

    And speaking of being honest…

    I didn’t get the chance to dictate all my notes and numbers into analysis, so you guys and girls get a giant three week recap of the Pirates Minor League System.

    Week of 8-9 to 8-14

    With the Major League Club scuffling out of the All-Star Break-6 wins and 16 losses-Pirates Fans have turned their eyes-more often-to the Minors; and of course roster and rotation projections for 2023.

    1) Endy Rodriguez-C/2B/OF (Altoona)

    He hasn’t skipped a beat on his trip from the Grasshoppers to the Curve; so much so that he has almost become a cut, copy and paste on the Top 5 Pirates Prospect Performers.

    In 5 games and 22 plate appearances he has a .316 Average and two home runs.

    — Altoona Curve (@AltoonaCurve) August 13, 2022

    2) Luis Ortiz-RHP (Altoona)

    For at least a few weeks in a row now I have been hearing rumblings of Luis Ortiz; culminating with his addition into the Fangraphs Top 15; as pointed out by @JV_PITT in his weekly Top 20 Prospect Update.

    On the year he has a 4.79 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP and 108 strikeouts in 103.1 innings, including 13 in 10 innings this past week; good for a .90 ERA and a .80 WHIP.

    One concern that does exist with Ortiz is his propensity to give up the long ball. On the year he has surrendered 18 homers in 21 starts; or an average of 1.57 per 9.

    A second immaculate inning on the season for Luis Ortiz!! pic.twitter.com/PZfr5mdOtB

    — Altoona Curve (@AltoonaCurve) August 9, 2022

    3) Aaron Shakelford-1B/2B (Altoona)

    Yes he is 25; which is a full 1.1 years older than the average Double-A player. But, now he has 22 homers in back-to-back seasons in the Minors.

    On the season he has batted a consistent .244, while striking out a slightly high 28.9% of the time; and, walking a somewhat low 8.7% of the time. Still, it’s not like his .280 ISO can be completely ignored.

    — Altoona Curve (@AltoonaCurve) August 12, 2022

    4) Quinn Priester-RHP (Altoona)

    Since his return from the IL, and more specifically since his return to Altoona, Priester has worked his way to a 2.49 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP with 46 strikeouts in 43.1.

    Obviously there are a limited number of starts, and a limited number of innings before the end of the year; so I am unsure how much more can be expected of Priester this season.

    Can you say Arizona Fall League?

    A Few quick thoughts-

    I see you!

    When Fangraphs added Ortiz to the Top 15, I wasn’t impressed. I went as far as to say he wouldn’t have been my choice for the spot (that said, I’d still have Lopez there over Ortiz).

    But he has looked really good since he slid into that group. Over his last three outings he’s been fantastic. In those three games he’s thrown 17 innings, striking out 18 on his way to a good slash line of-

    ERA 2.65 FIP 3.53 0.71 WHIP K-29% BB-4.8%

    Really nice work, keep it rolling Luis!

    Kyle Nicholas. After a scorching hot start followed by a cold front, Kyle has been pitching better as of late and had a solid week.

    Mike Burrows had a really nice week. I get the surface numbers don’t look at all like fans had hoped, but if we dig a little deeper the line is much better than most think. Why? In his second and third start in AAA, he gave up 10 runs in 8.2 innings. Looking at the other 26.2 innings he has an ERA of 3.12. He’s made some good adjustments, but those 10 innings loom large. The sample size here is small either way, but all in all he’s thrown better than most think.

    Batter you than me-

    Hudson Head and Connor Scott swapped hot-cold spots here. Head, who had been really killing the ball, cooled off and had a pretty rough week while Scott, who had been down and out found himself red hot.

    Keep on truckin’

    It’s one week, I get that. But man, Endy just keeps trucking and has started at AA right where he left off in A+. His bat, approach, and swing just continue to wreak havoc! As I mentioned a few weeks ago, there is still room on the Endy Bandwagon. Grab a seat before they’re gone.

  • Dodgers vs Brewers: Lineups, Pregame Matchups, and More for August 16
    16 August 2022

    The Dodgers have only lost back-to-back games once since June 28, and they avoided adding a second time by taking the first game in Milwaukee yesterday. The odds are a little worse for them today, as they send inconsistent rookie Ryan Pepiot to the mound against Brewers co-ace Brandon Woodruff.

    Pepiot, unsurprisingly, has never faced any current members of the Brewers roster. Woodruff, on the other hand, has faced many of the Dodgers, although Freddie Freeman and Trea Turner lead the team with nine plate appearances each against the big righty. Freeman is 3-for-9 with a homer (1.000 OPS), while Turner is 2-for-9 with just two singles. Cody Bellinger is 2-for-4 with two singles and two strikeouts, and Mookie Betts is 2-for-2 with a homer and a hit-by-pitch.

    — SportsNet LA (@SportsNetLA) August 16, 2022

    The Pepiot vs. Woodruff matchup is a mismatch on paper, but the Dodgers lineup is significantly better than Milwaukee’s. Whether that is enough to level the playing field remains to be seen.

    Joey Gallo gets a start against Woodruff today. Cody Bellinger gets the day off.

    — Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) August 16, 2022

    Today’s game will mark the 115th game of the season for LA. They are currently 80-34, on pace for nearly 114 wins. First pitch is scheduled for 5:10 PM PT.

  • Wynton Bernard and Everything Good About Baseball

    Baseball has had a glorious weekend of games, including near no hitters and heart stopping pennant race match ups.


    But the recall of 11 year minor league veteran Wynton Bernard to the Rockies provided a heartwarming highlight to the games. Perhaps his emotional tale can provide a blue print to MLB to help them find new casual fans.

  • Jakob Ingebrigtsen: “I always have something to prove”
    16 August 2022
    Norwegian star holds off challenge of Katir to win another European 5000m title on German soil

    Jakob Ingebrigtsen clearly adores competing at a European Championships in Germany. It was in Berlin, four years ago, when the then 17-year-old truly announced himself to the world by winning both the men’s 1500m and 5000m titles.

    Many miles have been run since and, fast forwarding to the present day in Munich, the Norwegian phenomenon was busy adding another continental gold to his already burgeoning medal collection.

    He allowed a little bit of jeopardy in the men’s 5000m final, with the outcome not totally clear as world 1500m bronze medallist Mohamed Katir sat on his shoulder going into the closing stages. A last lap of 53.7 seconds from Ingebrigtsen, however, saw off the Spaniard and there was time to enjoy the moment as he hit the line in 13:21.13 – Jack Buckner’s 13:10.15 from 1986 remains the championships record. Katir clocked for 13:22.98 for silver, the first European medal of his career, while Italian Yeman Crippa won bronze in 13:24.83.

    Great expectations have followed the Olympic 1500m and world 5000m champion for just about the entirety of his athletics career, but the manner in which he continues to meet them is nothing but impressive. Much like many of the greats, too, he is a master at cultivating motivation despite all of the honours he has accrued.

    “Everybody has the expectations and you have to learn how to deal with it,” he said after a closing kilometre of 2:23.61. “I believe in myself and I believe in the things I have done before. It feels great to be back and win, it is special. It brings back the memories of Berlin.”

    The next task on his list now, though, is defending that 1500m crown.

    “I am in the next race on Thursday,” he said. “I always have something to prove.”

    Ingebrigtsen had been content to loiter at the back while fellow countryman Narve Gilje Nordas made the early running before the lead changed hands between Britain’s Andy Butchart, Netherlands athlete Mike Foppen and Crippa as the field bunched.

    It was fractured with three laps to go, however, when Ingebrigtsen hit the front and soon he, Katir and Crippa broke away. The leader likes to grind his opposition into the track but the Spaniard would not budge and was still in striking distance on the final bend. Could, like Jake Wightman in Eugene, a surprise be about to be sprung?

    No. Ingebrigtsen surged again, finding that extra margin which continues to set him apart.

    Butchart was seventh in 13:31.47, with fellow Brits Sam Atkin ninth in 13:32.35 and Patrick Dever 21st in 13:45.89.

  • Alastair Walker sets world M65 5000m record
    16 August 2022
    Another record for the amazing 65-year-old plus a European round-up including results from Monaco and Munich Irish Masters Championships, Tullamore, August 13

    Scottish distance runner Alastair Walker, who has already set a number of records since turning 65, broke Kiwi Derek Turnbull’s long-standing M65 5000m world record with a time of 16:36.0 on a very hot day to highlight the championships.

    The previous mark by Turnbull was 16:38.8 and set 30 years ago in 1992.

    This year Walker has won two world titles and set 3000m world records indoors and out as well as set 5km and 10km road times including a sensational 34:32.

    He was pleased to run in Ireland and meet up with his coach Cathy McCourt.

  • Race walking history for Ntrismpioti and Lopez
    16 August 2022
    Greek and Spaniard become inaugural European 35km champions

    The morning of day two (August 16) in Munich brought with it two race walking firsts. With the 50km being replaced on the schedule, never before had there been 35km events staged at the European Championships and Greek Antigoni Ntrismpioti, as well as Spaniard Miguel Angel Lopez, seized their chances to make history by winning the women’s and men’s contests respectively in dominant style.

    As with the marathons, the downtown course showed off the city centre in fine style, with crowds turning out in force again to watch the athletes tackle the 17-and-a-half lap challenge.

    The 38-year-old Ntrismpioti, relishing the warm and sunny conditions, made her decisive break with around 10km to go, having worked alongside Spain’s Raquel Gonzalez to reel in leader Viktoria Madarasz of Hungary.

    The Eugene fourth-placer, who had reached 20km alongside Gonzalez in 1:36:48, went eight seconds clear at 25km and ultimately won by almost two minutes, clocking 2:47:00 to her rival’s 2:49:10. Madarasz hung on to take bronze in 2:49:58 while Britain’s Bethan Davies finished 11th with 2:59:38.

    “Around halfway, I felt that I had it,” said Ntrismpioti, who works as a waitress at her family’s restaurant, after clinching the first major medal of her career. “I know I am always strong in the last kilometres. Overall, I felt fine in these weather conditions. It was like back home in Greece.”

    Former World and European 20km champion Lopez’s men’s victory was a constructed in a very different fashion as he won by over three minutes after breaking clear around the 5km mark. At 20km (1:24:30), the Eugene 10th placer had a 90-second lead over double World Championships medallist Perseus Karlstrom, but the Norwegian was forced to drop out.

    The Spaniard reached the Odeonsplatz finish in a time of 2:26:49 as German Christopher Linke (2:29:30), who had been hit by Covid in Eugene, came through for second and Italian Matteo Giupponi won bronze with 2:30:34.

    “Leading from the front, mostly on my own, makes it hard,” said Lopez. “We started off with a very slow pace which I wasn’t really keen on, so I increased it. It was a bit of risk but it paid off in the end because I felt strong and managed to maintain the pace throughout. The transition to this distance was pretty easy because I come from the 20km – I was still doing the 20km last year – so it was not that hard for me to change. This new distance clearly suits my ability, and we managed to achieve great results this season.”

    Dina Asher-Smith’s hopes of defending her European 100m title after a swift recovery from a hamstring injury ended in pain and disappointment as she was forced to pull up halfway through a dramatic final. There was frustration too for another Briton, Daryll Neita, who had looked the woman to beat, but missed out on gold by 0.01sec.

    Meanwhile the huge 45,000 Olympic Stadium crowd roared their approval as Gina Lückenkemper got up on the line to take gold in 10.99sec – the same time as Switzerland’s Mujinga Kambundji. Neita tried desperately hard to recover from a horror start but could only take bronze in 11.00sec – 0.05 slower than she had run in the semi-final. Later she revealed she had suffered cramp on the blocks.

    16 August 2022
    World relay medallist hopes she and her twin sister Lina can help others after speaking out about living with Multiple Sclerosis

    Laviai Nielsen would like she and her twin sister to represent “a beacon of hope” to people going through their own challenges, after both recently spoke out about living with Multiple Sclerosis.

    Two weeks after her sibling and fellow international athlete Lina revealed she has had the condition which affects the brain and the spinal cord, after her 400m heat on Monday evening the 26-year-old spoke about being diagnosed with the same disease last summer.

    Talking about it has helped and the number of supportive messages which have come the Nielsens’ way since has provided motivation to be of service to others.

    “I feel confident now that my sister has done it,” Laviai told AW, when asked how she had felt about voicing the news. “Before she spoke out, it was kind of daunting but we’ve had so many positive messages saying that we’re role models and inspirations, which is hard to believe.

    “We’re taking that very seriously, though, and hope to be a beacon of hope for anyone not just going through MS but any difficulties or chronic illnesses.”

    MS can damage nerves and cause a number of debilitating symptoms, which include numbness or weakness in the limbs, a lack of co-ordination, vision problems, slurred speech and dizziness.

    On Monday evening Laviai had said:  “I got diagnosed last year, two days before I flew to the Olympics, which was great for my mental health. I saw Lina when she got diagnosed when she was 17 and she went through a really dark period. No 17-year-old should have to face that.

    “I saw her face depression. I looked back at the nine years she had and thought ‘I’m going to be ok’. I’ve got the most perfect example right in front of me. I dealt with it in my own way, but ever since it’s been really positive and we’ve helped each other through it all.”

    In terms of how badly she has been affected, Laviai added: “The only thing I had last year was I would be affected by heat. I would get pins and needles or a numb feeling down my left side. So I spoke to her [Lina] about it and said ‘could it be what you have’?

    “Luckily, I haven’t had any severe symptoms. It hasn’t hindered my training or my performance, so I consider myself quite lucky.”

    The emotional toll of revealing her illness must have been significant but, barely a few hours after her disclosure,  Laviai Nielsen was offering no excuses about being unable to progress from the 400m semi-finals.

    A season’s best of 51.53 was not enough for the three-time world 4x400m medallist to keep hopes of a first major individual honour alive, and she said: “I know I shouldn’t take these moments for granted but I expected more of myself today. I probably just let the occasion get to me a little bit.

    “Last summer, when I got diagnosed, it was hard to compartmentalise the two [the diagnosis and competing] but this year I’ve gotten really good at switching off. I had a task to do today, and that was making the final. That’s all that was in my head. Now that we’ve spoken out about it, you can kind of park it and get on with everything else.

    “I think the more people message us and say, ‘How are you doing this?’ and that we’ve done so well, it sinks in a bit more because I think when you’re in athletics, and you’re training and you’re performing, you just always take some next thing and not worrying about what’s going on around you.”

    Vicky Ohuruogu (Getty)

    British champion Vicky Ohuruogu did progress to the 400m final as an automatic qualifier, recording her sixth outdoor PB for the distance this year with a run of 50.50 for second spot in the second semi-final and third-fastest overall. Nicole Yeargin did not progress, however, following a run of 52.09 for fifth in heat three.

    In the men’s 400m semi-finals, defending champion Matthew Hudson-Smith qualified for Wednesday’s final with the minimum of fuss, winning the opening heat in 44.98. He was joined by Alex Haydock-Wilson, second in heat two with 45.45.

    Defending champion Laura Muir, meanwhile, secured safe passage to Friday’s final of the women’s 1500m, winning the opening heat in 4:06.40. She was joined by fellow Britons Katie Snowden (4:03.76) and Ellie Baker, who clocked a PB of 4:04.90 in heat two. Melissa Courtney-Bryant did not join them after a run of 4:09.11.

    In the field, the Olympic, world and European champion Malaika Mihambo looked in ominous form, finishing long jump qualification way out in front with a best leap of 6.99m, 10cm ahead of Ukrainian Maryna Bekh-Romanchuk. Britain’s Jazmin Sawyers also progressed, thanks to a jump of 6.60m and was joined in the final by compatriot Jahisha Thomas (6.57m). Abigail Irozuru did not go through after reaching 6.15m.

  • 1928: The Fight over Pole Vault at the 15th FIG Congress + the Complete Minutes
    16 August 2022

    In 1928, the 15th FIG Congress took place on August 6 in Amsterdam. It was the first meeting of the delegates after the death of Nicolas J. Cupérus, the man who led the FIG for 43 years. 

    The minutes are fascinating because they show the struggle between the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) to define the sport of gymnastics.

    Is pole vault a gymnastics event or an athletics event?

    In the view of the FIG, it was a gymnastics event, especially since it required the use of apparatus. (It was also part of Jahn’s seminal text, Die Deutsche Turnkunst, though that point did not come up in conversations.) But the IOC didn’t share the FIG’s view.

    *Cue dramatic music.*

    Reminder: Track and field events like pole vault were part of the World Championships (originally called the International Tournament) until 1950. Here’s a full list of events during the major men’s gymnastics competitions from 1896 until 1950.

    Note: You can find a list of member federations and members of the Technical Committee below. And to give you faces to match some of the names in the minutes below, here are photos of the FIG leadership at the time.

    15th International Meeting of Delegates of Gymnastics Federations

    Monday, August 6, 1928, at 4 p.m.
    At the Amsterdam Lyceum
    Valeriusplein, 15

    Agenda:

    [Note: You can click on the numbers to jump to a section.]

    2. Welcome from the President.
    3. Report on the activity of the Federation. – Financial situation.

    Mr. Dr. Scheiner (Czechoslovakia), the vice-president, hampered by illness, is excused.

    The President asks Dr. Groenewegen, President of the Dutch Federation, to come and take his place alongside the members of the Bureau.

    2. Welcome from the President. — President Cazalet welcomes all the delegates — he is happy to see so many — and the Hungarian Federation, which has returned to the fold of the International Federation. He reports that Spain is in the process of admission, but has not yet completed the required formalities. He announced that Bulgaria, as well as Japan, had requested the statutes, the various publications of the Federation, and all useful information, which led to the belief that these nations intended to collaborate in the work of the Federation. As far as Germany is concerned, despite what certain newspapers believed they could write, Germany never asked to enter our organization.

    Mr. President, standing in front of all the delegates, who rose spontaneously, then praised the former International President, Mr. Nicolas Cupérus, who died in Antwerp on July 13th. He delivers the following speech:

    Gentlemen:

    The first words, which must be spoken at the beginning of this meeting of the International Gymnastics Federation, must be in memory of him who, after having founded this great Association, presided over it for forty-three years, and, as we have already said, who did not lay down the torch until he was overcome by age and illness.

    Nicolas Cupérus was both a program and a flag.

    His program was the symbol of this gymnastics that he preached as the most effective motor of what he called “physical redemption” and, in this field, he experienced throughout his life “neither weariness nor weakness.” He would not have surrendered the word “gymnastics” to anyone else; it was enough for him, and he surrounded it with too much glory to be accessible to any modification whatsoever.

    His flag! It was both the national flag of each country and the humanitarian flag of peace. He thought that the best way to understand each other was to get closer and to know each other, and therefore to esteem and love each other, and we have the right to proclaim, we the Gymnasts, the Gymnasts of all countries, that we had founded among ourselves, in a small way, a League of Nations, like the great one, on which all eyes are fixed and which gives the whole world the hope of this peace among men that is so desired, and is this not the time to repeat this formula of Cuperus that, in agreement with you, my dear comrades, I have made mine, taking from your hands the presidency of his work:

    “The patriotism of a people grows and strengthens in respect and consideration for the patriotism of other nations.”

    It is not enough, my dear colleagues, to honor the memory of President Cupérus, we must follow his teaching.

    Now, what was he saying, this teaching?

    It was contained in this word: to act.

    And that is why, when in 1901, with our friend Mr. Karel Muller, then President of the Dutch Federation, we presented to him the project of creating International Tournaments to be placed between the Olympic Games, he accepted it as an act of movement and life intended to make our young gymnasts men of emulation and action. I still see him, in Heirust, in this property resting both on Belgian territory and on Dutch territory, where he welcomed us, surrounded by his devoted wife and his sweet daughter, in a feeling of friendship that has only grown with time; I see radiating around him that peaceful authority, made up of charm, wisdom, and competence, and in which one felt the love of the public good and of all progress.

    [Note: Cupérus was initially reluctant to create the International Tournaments.]

    If Nicolas Cupérus has been respected, honored, and loved, it is because he deserved to be so, and, in the name of the International Gymnastics Federation, I bow to his memory and, while waiting to place flowers on his grave, I ask you, my dear colleagues, comrades, and friends, for a minute of contemplation.

    This speech, unanimously appreciated and approved, is followed by a minute of meditation; then the meeting is resumed.

    Mr. President Cazalet, who has previously conferred with the President of the Royal Belgian Federation, and has come to an agreement with him, proposes to the assembly to erect a monument to the memory of the late deceased, which would be done by the care of the Belgian comrades, but with the moral and financial support of the International Federation and the affiliated Federations.

    This idea is unanimously approved.

    The President proposes to pay for this purpose, on behalf of the International Gymnastics Federation, a sum of 2,000 francs to be deducted from its funds, each Federation remaining free to intervene separately for a contribution as it sees fit. (Approved.)

    As confirmation of the wish expressed, Mr. C. Wachmar registered personally for 500 francs: Mr. Cappelli asked to be also registered personally for 500 francs, and Count Zamoyski, in the name of the Union of Polish Sokols, immediately handed over to Mr. Fr. Blomart, Belgian Federal President, a sum of 50 dollars. (Hearty approvals.)

    3. Report on the activity of the Federation and financial situation.
    Mr. Huguenin, treasurer, read a detailed report on the state of interfederal finances. It appears from this report that the receipts amounted to 7,725.80 fr., expenses at 1,955.85 fr., and that, at present, there remains in cash a sum of 5,569.95 French francs, despite the fact that some federations are late in paying dues, some for several years, others for the current year. It will be written to them again to ask them to put themselves in order.

    The treasurer’s report is approved and congratulations are addressed to him for his judicious work and his complete management.

    4 and 8. — Olympic Games in Amsterdam. Urgent decisions taken by the President. — This is mainly the question of pole vault.

    Mr. President Cazalet lays out the facts. He received a letter from the President of the International Olympic Committee, the Count de Baillet-Latour, urging him to abolish pole vaulting at the Olympic Games in Amsterdam, which could create a conflict with the International Federation of Athletics. Out of deference to him, who had defended so well, at the Lisbon Congress, the principle of one Federation per sport, out of respect for his authority, the President thought he had to show conciliation and removed pole vault from the exercises, but stating that it was subject to examining the matter for the upcoming Olympic Games, because pole vaulting is practiced in our Federations.

    Mr. Dalbanne. — About eighteen months ago, there was talk within the International Athletics Federation of abandoning this exercise, but the majority of the national Federations that make up this body have come out in favor of retaining pole vault, which has featured in all Olympic events since 1896.

    Mr. President Cazalet. — To perform this jump, you need an apparatus; but the apparatus events belong to us.

    Mr. Sommer (Holland). — The pole vault that we practice as training is a gymnastic vault which should not be confused with the athletic vault.

    Mr. W. Müller (Czechoslovakia) claims that we must be able to make and keep all the jumps in our programs.

    Mr. Hentges (Luxembourg). — The pole vault belongs to our international gymnastics program. If we abandoned it to the Olympic Committee, we would soon see them seize our parallel bars and our high bar.

    Mr Dalbane. — The International Olympic Committee does not have to take up this or that exercise; its role is to enforce the existing demarcations between the international federations governing the various so-called Olympic sports. However, at present, the pole vault is the domain of the International Athletics Federation. If we lost it, it’s our own fault, because, in 1852, at one of the first Swiss festivals, long before the birth of “athletics,” we were already doing it; a stamp and the programs bear witness to this.

    Mr. de Wallens. — We don’t do this vault the way athletes [i.e. track and field athletes] do.

    M. Dalbanne — There is no doubt that at the Olympic Games we cannot present our program in its entirety as in our tournaments; at these games, gymnastics is considered a sport.

    Mr. de Wallens. — We must not let ourselves be taken in by it.

    Colonel Royet. — The pole vault is not a natural jump, since it requires the use of an apparatus.

    Mr. President Cazalet. — I was told that I was wrong to have allowed the pole vault to be suppressed. I did it by conciliation, taking responsibility for it. I acted with my presidential conscience.

    The President reads out an agenda which he submits for discussion.

    Count Zamoyski (Poland) approves this agenda.

    Mr. President Cazalet. — We must also be able to keep the rope climb.

    Mr. Cappelli (Italy) and Mr. Royet (France) agree.

    Mr. Huguenin (Switzerland) apologizes for having to say that the pole vault, Olympically speaking, does not interest him much. He only wants it gymnastically speaking, and, in this respect, it exists in our programs and in our competitions: that is enough for him.

    Mr. Piesvaux (France) recalls that the late Mr. Cupérus wanted to see everything we do in gymnastics at the Olympic Games, but without any idea of ​​performance.

    Mr. Wachmar (France) thinks that Mr. Piesvaux’s idea deserves to be retained. We must regulate the program for the Olympic Games as we regulate it for the exercises at home.

    Mr. Hentges (Luxembourg). — The FIG makes its own programs and the Olympic Committee is wrong to interfere. We don’t want to be vaulting 4 meters high; whoever achieves this is a phenomenon. We want to train individuals capable of achieving a good average in all types of exercises.

    Mr. President Cazalet having modified his agenda because of the suggestions received, reads it and proposes the following:

    “The International Gymnastics Federation, meeting in Amsterdam on August 6, 1928, approves that its President Mr. Charles Cazalet to have, in a sense of deference to the President of the International Olympic Committee, Mr. Count de Baillet-Latour, temporarily removed pole vaulting from the gymnastics exercise program at the 9th Olympiad.

    “But urges that it be reinstated in future Olympiads, given:

    “1st. That this exercise was always part of the gymnastic exercises;

    “2nd. That, constituting a jump with apparatus, it is logically in the category of exercises with apparatus.

    “The Federation also asks that rope climbing be the subject of special emphasis.”

    This text is accepted.

    [Reminder: This is not the only time the FIG has had to modify its Olympic program to fit the needs of the IOC. For example, it canceled the ensemble routines in women’s gymnastics in 1957.]

    5. 1930 Luxembourg Tournament. — The President fears that the 1930 Tournament will be unfavorable to the Gymnastic Festivals which are planned to be held in Belgium at that time, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the national independence.

    Mr. Blomart and Mr. de Wallens reassured the President in this respect.

    6. Initiative of the composition of compulsory exercises at Tournaments and Olympic Games. — Mr. President Cazalet explains that the Luxembourg comrades have been asked to draw up a provisional program of exercises for the 1930 Tournament. This program has been completed, but must be examined by the Technical Committee responsible for composing it. It is only a question of applying a working method that saves time. The Official Committee thus has a basis for studies, but it always remains in charge of drawing up the final program. He pointed out that, when swimming could be included in the program, it should be left there, but that, as is the case for Luxembourg, if it could not be introduced there, it was permissible to remove it. (Approved.)

    Mr. Cappelli (Italy) is of the opinion that it is the Technical Committee alone that should be responsible for the elaboration of this work.

    Mr. President Cazalet repeats that, if the country that has the Tournament does it, there is a simple beginning, which can in no way harm the final goal.

    7. Program of the Olympic Games in Los Angeles (1932).

    Mr. Panzer (United States) considers himself happy to know that the Olympic Games will be held in Los Angeles in 1932; he would like to know already the number of gymnastics teams that will participate. (Laughter.) As for the technical work and the preparation of the exercises, it is up to the International Technical Committee to confer them.

    Mr. President Cazalet insists on the idea he has put forward and asks the American delegate to do some preparatory work so as to present it at the 1930 Tournament in Luxembourg. This will be a project that the International Technical Committee will review and approve.

    Mr. Panzer (United States) agrees with this view, and he hopes that many people will come to Los Angeles in 1932.

    8. Exchange of publications (art. 7 of the Statutes). — The President considers that it is necessary to continue the exchanges begun and carried out to date, and that it is desirable to complete them as much as possible.

    9. Obligation of exclusive invitations to Affiliates.

    Mr. President Cazalet said that the invitations of the Interaffiliated Federations must be reserved for the Societies forming part of these federations. Only federations of the international grouping can be invited to its festivals and demonstrations.

    [Backstory: The federations affiliated with the FIG were supposed to invite only other affiliated federations to their local competitions. So, for example, the Germans were not to be invited, given that the Germans were not affiliated with the FIG.]

    Mr. de Wallens (Belgium) considers that it is advisable to approach the Committees of these Federations in order to make the invitations wisely.

    Mr. Clement (Luxembourg). — Any Society to be invited must be part of a federation and this one must be part of the International Federation.

    Mr. Zamoyski (Poland). — Our statutes are clear on this subject.

    Mr. Dalbanne — It is a tradition for certain countries, notably Switzerland, to invite to its festivals groups of countries that border its territory. It may not be its right, but there is a custom that dates back a long time, before its entry into the International Federation. It is difficult to be able to abruptly break such ancient traditions.

    Mr. President Cazalet. — The principle to be applied is very simple. It is logical to say that the unaffiliated federations are ignored and have nothing to do with them.

    Mr. Wachmar (France). — The question is delicate. In creating the European Federation, we had in view the respect of all nations; today, though it is the enlarged International Federation, the idea remains the same. The Swiss and the Dutch usually invite their immediate neighbors, the Germans; it is a custom. The question in question has never been clearly posed. Since some federations have tradition on their side, perhaps we could turn a blind eye.

    [Reminder: Originally, the FIG was not an international organization but rather a..

  • Some things about the swimming competition
    16 August 2022
    What is streamlining?

    Streamlining is a swimming technique that is used underwater every time you stroke. The streamline technique is used at the beginning of a race or turn and is usually used in conjunction with a dolphin kick or chatter kick, which creates minimal resistance and helps the swimmer to advance as fast as possible.

    Most commonly swimmers dive head down into the water with their arms raised above their head and enter the water in a streamlined pattern so they look like a fish. The other common streamlined shape occurs after the swimmer finishes flipping and pushing off the wall. The streamlined position is a stroke with the spine as the axis, and the backstroke and freestyle are based on the streamlined position. Swimmers will work to keep their backs and legs straight to reduce "drag".

    How do you perfect your swimming streamline?

    The fastest an athlete can move through the water is when they dive into the water and off the wall. A smoother streamline allows them to use less time to slide farther and faster. So streamline the flow.

    If limited flexibility gets in the way of your streamline, the best thing to do is to perform stretches on land to increase shoulder flexibility. This will also help keep your shoulders and back healthy. If core strength is limited and it is difficult to maintain a good body line, then try yoga training. These two water programs will not only improve your flow, but also your stroke. Of course, these should be done in the company or under the supervision of a professional.

    Some rules for swimming competitions Start

    The referee first signals the participating swimmers with a few short whistles, which means that the race is about to begin and the swimmers are to take off all their clothes except their swimsuits. The head judge then blows the whistle and orders the swimmers to take their positions. They can be on the starting platform, on the deck or on the water, depending on the stroke of the race.

    Once all swimmers are ready, the referee extends his hand to the starter. With all swimmers in their starting positions, the starter will signal and the race will begin. If a swimmer is not immediately scored, the starter will order the swimmer to "stand up". Swimmers can move from their starting position until they are told again to keep score. Once all swimmers are in the starting position, the starter will signal the start of the race. If a swimmer does not mark immediately, the starter will order the swimmer to "stand up". Swimmers may move out of their starting position until they are told to mark again.

    In swimming, there is no "false start" warning signal. Any athlete who jumps into the pool before the signal is given will be automatically disqualified from the race. However, if the signal is given before the disqualification is announced, the race may continue and the swimmer will be disqualified at the end of the race.

    Turns

    In swimming competitions, you will see athletes approaching the wall with a turn and stomp, what does this do? This is very common in competitions because a normal turn in the water like on land will create a lot of "drag" and will be very slow, so there is a turn to stomp the wall, which is also called a fast turn. Fast turns are critical to a great race. In any case, the swimmer must make contact with the wall when turning.

    In freestyle and backstroke, the swimmer may somersault and stomp the wall as he or she reaches it, touching it with only his or her feet. In butterfly and breaststroke, swimmers must touch the wall with both hands at the same time before turning.

     

    There are also different rules and requirements like breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly, freestyle, and medley, so I won't go into details here.
