Pickoff Moves, Lunchtime Edition

UTK Tidbits

From today's UTK:

The Hee-Seop FAQ

Thanks to Jon for mentioning (if not linking to) Dodger Math's Hee-Seop Choi FAQ. Choi's never going to be a great player, and if John Sickels is to be believed, it's unlikely he'll even make it to competence. Pity.

17 Voted Into Hall Of Fame

Seventeen players have been elected to the Hall of Fame, seven of whom were Negro Leagues players:
The electees include seven Negro leagues players: Ray Brown, Willard Brown, Andy Cooper, Biz Mackey, Mule Suttles, Cristobal Torriente, and Jud Wilson; five pre-Negro leagues players: Frank Grant, Pete Hill, José Méndez, Louis Santop, and Ben Taylor; four Negro leagues executives Effa Manley, Alex Pompez, Cum Posey, and J.L. Wilkinson; and one pre-Negro leagues executive Sol White. Manley, an owner in the Negro leagues, becomes the first woman elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Hat tip: The Griddle.

Rocket Gives Up A Blast -- To His Own Son

Koby Clemens took his dad deep on the first pitch of a simulated game. Dad Roger was practicing for the upcoming WBC, but remains without a major league contract so far.
Koby Clemens said his dad was ready to retire in December, but his family talked him out of it.

"We were all like, 'You should wait and allow yourself to rest your body,'" Koby said. "He was still kind of hurting, kind of tired. He was like, 'I don't want to do this again.'"

Time to retire, I think.

Comments:
I've met Will Carroll a few times, and I think he's a great guy, but that line about Anderson is just awful reporting. Seriously, I could interpret that comment about 18 different ways.
 
ANd you missed the best part of the Clemens story. The next time Koby came up, Clemens brushed him back.
 
The more I learn about Garret Anderson, the more I think he’s resembling Tim Salmon Part Deux.

Whaddya mean? I, like most, are optimistic about GA's 2006, and I've read some things to validate that. However......
