Character Education: GRIT

Interesting educational article. It's about teaching character development at different levels.... GRIT is the baited hook.

John Buck is probably the best free agent option now for catcher. I have no idea why the Royals would let him go while picking up the corpse of Jason Kendall. Teams are still convinced that veteran catchers can have value above and beyond the numbers. The search to quantify that still goes on.

Whoa! Where's the WFB love?

It's not even May and you're already down on Willie Ballgame? It's hard to find someone who can slug .285 over a full season and be a non-entity at seven different positions. No really, it is....

Community "Heart & Gut" Projection - Catchers (Olivo, Buck, Pena, House)

A community projection for the Royals catchers in 2009.

Cliff Floyd is all about heart, determination, and grit.... Cliff Floyd is forecast to be a league average hitter. And a league average hitter who cannot (or is not expected to) play the field is the very definition of a replacement-level player. Indeed, the GM of the Padres agrees with this assessment, as his stated role is also the very definition of replacement-level player. That replacement-level player, with ordinary heart and determination, will cost you 400,000$. Cliff Floyd however is going to cost 750,000$. When people say that you can’t measure the intangibles, remind them that those intangibles are being paid for with tangible dollars. And the value of those intangibles, as determined by MLB, is $350,000. If it was worth more, then some team would have paid more. They didn’t."

Is Dayton Moore becoming Wayne Krivsky?

I’ve noticed something disturbing happening over the last year.  I am afraid Dayton Moore is slowly becoming Wayne Krivsky.   As I am sure most of you know Wayne Krivsky was the GM of the...

Team Local Number 54 (all-grit team)

Pretty ridiculous topic, I know, but who are your all-grit players. The picks can be arbitrarily based, and without logic, but I think it would be fun to see everyone's picks. Local 54, for those...
