December 19th Show Notes December 19, 1934 – The New York Yankees send five players to the San Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast League as partial compensation for the acquisition of Joe DiMaggio. The Yankees had previously paid $25,000 for the future Hall of Famer. DiMaggio will play one more season in the PCL before reporting to the Yankees in 1936. In ‘36, DiMaggio will hit .323 with 125 RBIs in helping the Yankees to a World Series title. December 19, 1976 — A single-engine Piper Cherokee plane crashes into the upper deck of Baltimore's Memorial Stadium, home of the Orioles, injuring the pilot and three others. Minutes prior to the mishap, the plane had buzzed the stadium during the final moments of the Steelers' playoff victory over the Colts.   The pilot of the Piper Cherokee was 33-year-old Donald Kroner. Kroner served three months of a two-year sentence for malicious destruction of property and violation of aviation ordinances. Kroner had been arrested prior to the Stadium incident for making threats against former Colt Bill Pellington. This included Kroner being accused of dropping a bottle and toilet paper from his plane onto the roof of Pellington's Timonium restaurant. According to news reports, Kroner was upset over being thrown out of the restaurant. Kroner died in 2013. Kroner had been fired as an MTA bus driver the day before the crash. He also had been a flight instructor and, according to some accounts, had worked as an air traffic controller. In 1980, Kroner was charged with stealing a Greyhound bus from Dulles International Airport. December 19, 1990 — At a press conference, Tiger management and WJR announce 1991 will be Ernie Harwell's 32nd and final season in the broadcast booth. The dismissal of the Motor City's popular play-by-play announcer starts a furor among fans, which includes a threatened boycott of Domino's Pizza, a business of club owner Tom Monaghan, and the rise of the slogan, “Say It Ain't So, Bo”, which appears on bumper stickers and T-shirts all over Detroit, referring to Bo Schembechler, the team president and former University of Michigan football coach. "[Harwell's situation is] not going to change no matter how much clamor is made over it," said team president Bo Schembechler. The situation caused outrage so much that some made threats of violence against Schembechler. Some, such as Mitch Albom, blamed the situation causing as much negative feeling as it did on WJR executive Jim Long who was the one who pushed the quick, no severance pay removal of Harwell.[6] The movement in favor of keeping Harwell was so strong that even billboards in favor of his remaining were put up.[7] Rick Rizzs was hired away from the Seattle Mariners to replace Harwell in 1992, teaming with Bob Rathbun. Harwell worked a part-time schedule for the California Angels in 1992. The following year, the Tigers were purchased by Mike Ilitch, who made it one of his first priorities to bring Harwell back. In 1993, Harwell teamed with Rizzs and Rathbun on the WJR broadcasts, calling play-by-play of the middle innings in each game. From 1994 to 1998, Harwell called television broadcasts for the Tigers on PASS Sports and later WKBD-TV. In 1999, he resumed full-time radio duties with the team, swapping roles with Frank Beckmann (who had replaced Rizzs in the radio booth following the 1994 season), teaming with analyst Jim Price, and continuing in that role even as the team's radio rights changed from WJR to WXYT in 2001. During spring training in 2002, Harwell announced that he would retire at the end of the season; his final broadcast came on September 29, 2002. Dan Dickerson, who had joined Harwell and Price in 2000, took over as the Tigers' lead radio voice. Died: December 19, 2008 in Los Angeles, CA Dock Ellis, a solid pitcher for the Bucs, is best known for his performance on June 12, 1970, when he would forever etch his name in major league baseball history. That night Dock, despite the fact he walked eight batters, no-hit the San Diego Padres 2-0 on the strength of two Willie Stargell home runs. Also that night, which he admitted later on, was the fact that Ellis pitched his gem while on LSD. Welcome to the wild and bizarre world of Dock Ellis. He had a 14-3 record at the 1971 All-Star break, but famously said baseball wouldn't let two soul brothers – he and Vida Blue – start the AS game. Ellis ended up surrendering Reggie Jackson's titanic blast at Tiger Stadium. He was also the starter when the Pirates become the first team to start 9 black players. Ellis, never one to avoid controversy, also hit the first three Reds on May 1, 1974 because he felt his team was lackluster. Ellis will eventually end up a Yankee in ‘76 and win comeback player of year after winning 17 games. Doc Finished up with 138 wins vs. 119 loses and a 3.46 ERA. In 1955, he broke Ty Cobb's record to become the youngest player to win a batting title. Al Kaline was one day younger in 1955 than Cobb had been in 1907, when “The Georgia Peach” won his first title. Despite a history of injuries, he tied Tris Speaker's record of 100+ games in the outfield for 19+ seasons. A future Hall of Famer, Kaline was born on December 19, 1934, in Baltimore, Maryland. In his 22-year career (1953-1974), the outstanding right fielder had 3007 hits, 399 HR, 1582 RBI, 1622 runs, .297 BA, .376 OBP, .480 Slg., & .855 OPS. In the 1968 World Series, Kaline batted .379 with 11 hits, which included two home runs.   Playing his entire career with the Detroit Tigers, his nickname was Mr. Tiger. He was an All-Star in 15 seasons, won 10 Gold Glove Awards, won a batting title in 1955, and was a member of the 1968 World Series champions. His uniform #6 is retired by the Tigers. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1980 (88.3% on the 1st ballot).

This Day in Baseball - The Daily Rewind

On December 5, 1921, Babe Ruth and two other members of the New York Yankees are suspended for participating in an “illegal” barnstorming tour after the 1921 World Series. Commissioner Landis punishes Ruth, outfielder Bob Meusel, and pitcher “Wild Bill” Piercy for the first six weeks of the 1922 season. This will have little impact as the Yankees will make World Series for the second straight year (although they lost to the NY Giants for the second consecutive time). However, Ruth had the worst year of his career posting a 6.4 WAR, and as an everyday player, his 1.106 OPS was his second worst mark of the 20's. He did bounce back in 1923, winning the MVP. He still managed to hit 35 homers with 96 RBI, so it was a pretty good year. What I marvel at is how much of his Baseball Reference page is bolded. Between 1918 and 1931, he wasn't the league leader in home runs just twice. Once was this 1922 season and the other was 1925, when he appeared in just 98 games. On December 5, 1973 — Ron Santo becomes the first player to invoke the new 10 and 5 rule. The Cubs want to trade Santo to the Angels for two pitchers, but he vetoes the deal. The 10-5 rule, which was agreed upon during the 1972 players strike, gives a player with 10 years' service and 5 consecutive years with a team the right to veto a trade. In this case Santo was from the west coast but was comfortable in Chicago and desired to stay in the area. The Cubs honored the new agreement, and he will eventually be traded to the cross-town White Sox. It did not work out well as Bill Melton was the third baseman, and Santo moved around between second and the DH role. He will hang up the cleats in 1974. Ironically on this day in 2011, Santo will finally get his due and be voted into Baseball's Hall of Fame. A long overdue honor for Santo who passed away the previous year. He receives 15 of 16 votes from members of the “Golden Era” Committee. On December 5, 1978 — After sixteen years with the Cincinnati Reds, Pete Rose signs a four-year, $3.2 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. Other teams which pursued “Charlie Hustle” include the Mets, Braves, Pirates and the Royals. The deal temporarily makes Rose the highest-paid athlete in team sports. In 5 years with the Phils (1979-1983), Pete will be a 4X All-Star and help the Phillies to 2 NL Pennants including the Phillies first Championship in 1980. He led the league in hits in 1981 with 140 base knocks, and he finished his Phillies career with a slash line of .291/.365/.361. That was a period that covered his age-38 to age-42 seasons. On December 5, 1990, the San Diego Padres and Toronto Blue Jays collaborate on an old-fashioned blockbuster trade. San Diego deals Roberto Alomar and Joe Carter to Toronto for Fred McGriff and Tony Fernandez. Alomar and Carter will help the Blue Jays to two World Championships. Alomar will become one of baseball's best players during his 6 years, hitting .307 with 206 stolen bases, a .382 OBP and .833 OPS. He will finish in top 10 in the MVP vote 3 times and win 6 Gold Globes. Carter, a premium RBI man, will drive in 100+ runs in 6 of his 7 years in Toronto. Only the strike shortened year stopped him in 1995. He will finish in the top 5 for MVP voting twice and hit one of the most historic homeruns in World Series history off Mitch Williams. Fred McGriff will go on to hit 493 home runs over his career playing for multiple teams. It remains an injustice he is not in Cooperstown. Tony Fernandez will play for 2 seasons in San Diego end up back on Toronto and play on the 1993 World Championship team, playing in all 6 games and driving in 9 runs. On December 5, 1951, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson dies at the age of 62. Jackson, who succumbs to a heart attack, batted .356 over his 13-year career. Jackson had the talent to be the greatest player in history, but he threw it away when he accepted $5,000 to throw the 1919 World Series. As part of the most infamous scandal in sports history, Jackson was banished from baseball following the 1920 season, along with his seven co-conspirators. The controversy over that decision has kept Jackson's name alive long after his death.

How will the San Francisco Giants behave during the 2022-23 offseason? Will the Giants do more of the same, piecing together a roster and waiting for top prospects like Marco Luciano, Kyle Harrison, and others to develop? Or will the Giants finally make some impact signings that have been non-existent during Farhan Zaidi's era as Giants president of baseball operations? What is a reasonable prediction for Joey Bart's numbers next year? The Giants' catcher has been much better since being recalled from the minors in early July, so which version of Bart should we expect next year? Probably somewhere in the middle. Bart's strikeout rate remains elevated, so it's probably reasonable to expect closer to a league average batting average and OBP, with above-average power. That would make him a quality player but not quite a star. What's going on with Mike Yastrzemski? He's been struggling for months. Should the Giants try to replace Yaz with someone from the minors? The answer is that it's reasonable to think that, but they don't have any obvious replacements ready to take over. That's a problem with the state of the organization. They don't spend big on talent, but their farm system has also been slow to develop impact talent. Same goes for the Giants' Tommy La Stella problem.

The White Sox continue to be mired in mediocrity as they struggle with a part of the schedule a good Triple-A team could cruise through, but SSS duty geezer Leigh Allan and his son and current next-room correspondent, Will, dive into the biggest and worst news of the week: The injury to Tim Anderson that will keep the All-Star shortstop off of the field for most, and possibly all, of the 2022 season. Leigh has an answer: Andrelton Simmons. The multiple-Gold Glove winner is a free agent after being released by the Cubs this week, and the White Sox could sure use some defensive help. True, Simmons can't hit a lick any more. Also true, his OBP is higher than Leury García's and his K/BB ratio is less than two to one, so at least he puts the ball in play. Of course, no podcast would be complete without moaning about how poorly the White Sox hit, pitch and field, whilst giving thanks for being in a division where a horrible 82 wins might just win it. Even the professional prognosticators see no more than 85 wins for any of the three contenders, and one even has the White Sox as reaching that illustrious number. Meanwhile, as of the recording, five games were still left in the 19-game trek versus terrible teams, with the Sox 8-6 in it so far. Still, Will sees an incredibly uplifting Disney movie about the White Sox as they overcome adversity and a lout of a manager to win it all through friendship and love and all that really good tear-jerker sports movie stuff.

It's no secret the White Sox are playing very badly, but SSS duty geezer Leigh Allan and his son and west coast correspondent, Will, make the big mistake this week of looking at the actual numbers for hitting, fielding, and pitching. Surprise! Those numbers do not improve one's opinion. Even when there appears to be hope, the hope gets diminished: Batting average .235, 19th in MLB. Not good by any means, but not terrible. That is, not terrible until being 30th in walks bring the OBP down to 28th at .291 and the OPS to .650, ahead of only the Tigers and A's. Etc. No wonder runs per game come in 27th. Fielding? Don't ask, though being dead-worst in errors is no longer the case, so that's a bright spot. At least it's a bright spot until you look at runs saved or range actors. But the pitching has been good, right? Well, if you consider 25th in runs allowed good. And so it goes. The White Sox do have the best record in baseball at being caught stealing, which has only happened twice. So there is that. All is not moaning and groaning, though. There's also anger, as Leigh takes off on the HOFBP for acting like he speaks for military veterans in his comments on Gabe Kapler's decision on the National Anthem, when in fact said HOFBP never served in the military even though he was of age during the Vietnam Era. It wasn't a surprising move by the arrogant jerk, but it was damned offensive. Oh, yes, Will raises the question of why White Sox starting pitchers take more pitches to get through an inning than others do. Unfortunately, we have no answers. Learn more about your ad choices.

Robert Deininger and Jack Degraw discussed the Yankees Starting Pitching, which is the best in the MLB at 2.88. We've seen Gerrit Cole return to form as the Yankees "Ace," along with Nestor Cortez making the case that he's the Yankees #2 "Ace" with and ERA of 1.50. We talk about both of them, along with Jordan Montgomery, the resurgence of Luis Severino, and Jameson Taillon. We also touch on the Yankees decision to demote Miguel Andujar to Triple-A (yet again) despite Andujar having more productive AB's than Joey Gallo (.173 avg.) and Aaron Hicks (.223 avg.). Following Andujar's demotion, he informed Manager Aaron Boone that he no longer wishes to play for the Yankees, and demanded to be traded. This is the second season in-a-row that Miguel Andujar has requested a trade.We also discuss the MVP caliber season that Aaron Judge is currently having, and on pace to have. Judge is leading the Yankees in batting average (.316), HR's (21), RBI's (42,) OBP (.386), SLG (.689), and OPS (1.075). Not only is Aaron Judge the face of the Yankees, the "unofficial Captain" by the vast majority of the fans, but he is by far their best player! And if he goes on to have a career year, it'll be extremely difficult for GM Brian Cashman and the Yankees organization to justify not resigning him!!!*which has the best ERA in MLB at 2.88A Comfortably Zoned Radio Network, production.

Hey Sox fans, just recently the White Sox were ranked #3 in MLB latest power rankings. The Sox starting pitching have held strong, sporting a league best 2.68 ERA. Dylan Cease and Michael Kopech have been great so far as the Sox offense tries to wake up. If you are not hitting the ball out of the ballpark or relying on typical power numbers, than you need to get creative to score runs. The Sox have been very aggressive at the plate and on the base paths. But is the low OBP and walk rate in April a sustainable means for success? Sox still waiting for Gio, Lynn, Kelly, Moncada and Pollock to return to action. After Cleveland, the Sox will face another AL Central foe in the Twins. Keep the winning ways going and stay healthy.

Cutternation Podcast #49 - Matt Antonelli Antonelli was originally drafted as a third baseman by the San Diego Padres with the 17th pick of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft. In July 2007, Antonelli was named the best second base prospect in the minors by Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus. In November 2007, Antonelli was ranked as the #1 second base prospect and #27 prospect overall in baseball, on a list polling 20 members of the scouting community and compiled by Jonathan Mayo of minorleaguebaseball.com Antonelli with the Padres in Spring training 2008 Before the 2007 season, Antonelli was not considered to have much power potential after having zero home runs in over 200 professional at bats in 2006. However, he hit 14 home runs in 82 games for High A Lake Elsinore, before moving up to Double A San Antonio Missions to finish the season. In 534 at-bats between the two levels, Antonelli finished with a slash line of .304/.404/.491 with 21 homers and 25 stolen bases along with a 94/83 K/BB ratio. He won the Texas League Championship with the Missions in 2007. In 2008, Antonelli played for the Padres' AAA farm club, the Portland Beavers. He struggled at the plate most of the year, hitting just .215, but kept his good eye and ended up with 76 walks. In August he found some success, hitting .290 for the month, with 4 home runs and a .393 OBP. Antonelli was called up to the Padres on September 1, 2008, where he promptly laced a single off Greg Maddux of the Dodgers for his first hit in the major leagues. He then went hitless in his next 20 at bats, but then got 7 hits in his next 13 at-bats with 3 walks, including his first home run, on September 15, off of Colorado Rockies pitcher Jason Hirsh.
