Pickoff Moves

Jason Bay Goes To The Mets

Everybody knows by now that Jason Bay is headed to Citi Field on a deal whose preliminary specs are 4 years and $65M. He'd been mooted as a possible Angel, but I never put any stock in that talk; the Angels seemed fairly set in their outfield, and Bay has certainly put down some roots in the east coast.

Diamondbacks Sign Bob Howry

On a one-year deal with a team option for 2011; the only question is why?

Mark DeRosa A Giant

2 years and $12M. It's a good deal for San Francisco, who are probably overpaying a bit for his production. I'm kind of surprised the Cubs didn't take a pass at him.

How To Photograph Baseball

Brad Mangin's how-to includes some outstanding photography of Angels, both from spring training 2009 and during the regular season. I stumbled across Brad's site after I joined the LA Canon digital SLR group on Yahoo. Mangin is a long-time freelancer whose work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, and who learned under Neil Liefer, whose collected works book I reviewed a year ago.

I encountered Mangin's advice while reading a cursory test run he did recently with a pre-production Canon 1D Mark IV at a 49ers/Lions game at Candlestick, a piece of hardware I'm very interested in buying. As for the LACDG, I am absolutely humbled looking at these guys' photos; as just one tiny example, look at this month's challenge shoot, and in particular, this one from Jorge Vismara. Wow.
