Where has the time gone: Kevin Youkilis

Posted on: December 27th, 2018 by Ron Kaplan

I don’t know what I’m having a harder time wrapping my head around: that Kevin Youkilis has been retired for five years or that his name appears on this year’s Hall of Fame Ballot?

Here’s his capsule bio from the HoF Ballot page:

KEVIN YOUKILIS

1st year on the ballot…Played 10 seasons with Red Sox, White Sox and Yankees…Three-time All-Star (2008-09, 2011) and 2007 Gold Glove Award winner at first base who twice finished in Top 10 of the American League MVP voting (2008: 3rd; 2009: 6th)…Hit better than .300 in three seasons (2008-2010) and recorded an on-base percentage of .400 or better in two seasons (2009-10)…Topped 20-home run mark twice (2008-09) and reached the 100-RBI mark once (2008)…Led AL in sacrifice flys in 2006 with 11…Played in seven Postseason series over four seasons, hitting .306 with 22 runs scored and 17 RBI in 29 games…Member of Red Sox World Series championship teams in 2004 and 2007.

This writer thinks the mistakenly nicknamed “Greek God of Walks” should be inducted just because of his unique batting stance, but let’s be real here: Most likely Youkilis — who appears on the ballot with 34 other former major leaguers — will not get enough votes to return for the 2020 voting.

Youk ranks seventh all-time among JMLs in home runs (150); seventh in RBIs (618); seventh in runs scored (653); and ninth in hits (1,053). None of those numbers are Hall-worthy.

The Baseball Writers Association of America will announce the results on Jan. 22. Any electees will be inducted on Sunday, July 21, at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown.

JML Update, Game Three scouting report

Posted on: October 27th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Joc Pederson will start Game Three for the LA Dodgers, as the venue moves to Houston Astros’ home. Now that he homered, how many will jump on the Jewish geography bandwagon?

Robert Wechsler, author of the new release, The Jewish Baseball Card Book, sent me an email noting the accomplishments of Peterson and the Astros’ Alex Bregman:

This was the first time two Jewish players drove in runs in a World Series game.

It’s rare that two Jewish players even appeared in the World Series together — the last time was 2011 when Ian Kinsler and Scott Feldman both got into a game for Texas. Kinsler drove in two runs in Game 6, but Feldman did not bat.

Teammates Sandy Koufax and Larry Sherry both pitched for the Dodgers in 1959. Another pitcher, Barry Latman, was on the White Sox roster, but did not to appear in the Series.

Jason Marquis of St. Louis and Gabe Kapler of Boston played in the 2004 Series, but neither one had an RBI. (Kapler only had two at-bats.)

Hank Greenberg‘s Tigers faced Cy Block‘s Cubs in 1945 and Morrie Arnovich‘s Reds in 1940. Both Block and Arnovich only appeared as pinch runners in games in which Greenberg had RBIs.

Joc Pederson smashes a solo home run in the fifth inning to tie the game at 1–1.

Kevin Youkilis had two doubles in nine at-bats for the Red Sox in the 2007 WS, too.

JML update, Weekend edition (games of Aug. 12-14, 2016)

Posted on: August 15th, 2016 by Ron Kaplan

The excessive heat may have caused some power shortages around the country, but it didn’t affect a couple of the MOT.

For the second time this month Ryan Braun drove in six runs in a single game (actually it was seven in a 15-9 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Aug. 6). Yesterday he drove in six of the Milwaukee Brewers’ runs in their 7-3 win over the visiting Cincinnati Reds. Braun hit two home runs — a day after hitting one in an 11-5 loss — and a double, bring his season totals to 22 round-trippers and 65 RBI. Not bad considering he’s missed 20 games in 2016. And if that wasn’t enough, he also made this nice catch. His 20th came on Saturday in an 11-5 loss that saw the Reds score eight runs in the sixth inning.

Joc Pederson also homered on both Saturday (below)– a two-run opposite-field shot to give his LA Dodgers their last two runs in an 8-4 win over the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates — and Sunday , in an 11-3 loss. That brings his number up to 18.

kinsler-dugout.jpgDetroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler managed just one long ball — his 22nd home run yesterday in a 7-0 win over the host Texas Rangers. (Take that, Texas!) That ties him with Braun for the led among JML.

And while we’re at it, can we get a little love for Tigers manager Brad Ausmus? He always seems to be on the hot seat but he’s got his team in second place in the AL Central, a manageable five games behind the Cleveland Indians.

Alex Bregman was 3-11 with two runs scored and his fifth double as the Houston Astros dropped to of three to the host Toronto Blue Jays. Scott Feldman appeared in Friday’s game for the Jays and it wasn’t an easy ride. After retiring the first two batters in the ninth, he gave up two infield hits and walked a batter to load the bases. He extricated himself by inducing a force out to end the threat without a run. Kevin Pillar remains on the disabled list for Toronto.

Danny Valencia started two of the three games for the Oakland A’s against the Seattle Mariners, going 3-8 with a run scored and an RBI. He grounded out as a pinch hitter in the middle contest as the A’s lost two of three.

The New York Yankees sent relief pitcher Richard Bleier back to the minors last week. The 29-year-old made his debut on May 30 of this year. He threw 13.1 innings, giving up 17 hits, allowing five earned runs without a decision.

 

You’re never to old to learn. It’s back to school for Kevin Youkilis.

Theo Epstein, Peter Gammons hold annual fundraiser

Posted on: January 6th, 2016 by Ron Kaplan

Brought to you as a public service announcement…

The legendary baseball writer/broadcaster Peter Gammons was on the segment preceding my appearance on the MLB Network’s Hot Stove last week. One of the things he discussed was this upcoming music event for charity.

Gammons, an avid guitar player, is getting ready for the 16th Theo Epstein and Peter Gammons’ Hot Stove Cool Music program, scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 9, at The Paradise Rock Club in Boston.  Tickets are $40 and you can order them here.

The event brings together stars of music and baseball to raise money for Foundation To Be Named Later, a charity established in 2005 by Theo Epstein’s twin brother Paul, a Brookline social worker, which helps to serve disadvantaged youth in Boston and Chicago.

This year’s lineup includes a mix of former Red Sox players, Yankees players, musicians, and television personalities, including Bronson Arroyo, Kevin Youkilis, and Jake Peavy.

Here’s a promo for the 2014 event.

And a sample of Gammons on guitar. He released a music CD — Never Slow Down, Never Grow Old — in 2006 (you can hear audio clips by clicking the link).

 

JML update, Hot Stove edition, Feb. 6, 2015

Posted on: February 6th, 2015 by Ron Kaplan

Wow, there’s a slap in this NY Post piece: “Lucas Duda vows not to be the Mets’ next Ike Davis.” Ouch. “Remember, Ike Davis had a big year in 2012 (32 home runs), then hit nine and 11 home runs the next two seasons. Duda — who was third in the NL in home runs behind the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo — knows he has to prove he’s not a one-year wonder.” Well, I’m gonna stand up for my homey here and say he was not a “one-year wonder.” He finished seventh in NL Rookie of the Year voting in 2010 on the strength of 19 homers, 71 RBI, and outstanding defense at first base. The next season he appeared in just 36 games due to injury and still hit seven home runs and drove in 25, which project to 31 and 112, respectively over a 162-game season. He proved that was possible in 2012 with 32/90, although his batting average did suffer tremendously. So there.

Look who showed up on the field, post-New England Patriots’ Super Bowl win: None other than Tom Brady’s bro-in-law, Kevin Youkilis. Given that Youkilis was on the World Champion Boston Red Sox in 2007 (he was also on the team as a rookie in 2004 but was not on the W.S. roster), I wonder how it felt for him to be in that setting. Kind of sad that he played his last Major League game at the age of 34. Just goes to show you can’t take anything for granted, either as an athlete or a fan.

of the scores of new baseball titles might be especially interesting to Jewish fans: Finding the Left Arm of God: Sandy Koufax and the Los Angeles Dodgers, 1960-1963Haven’t read this yet (it just came out last week), but I must warn potential purchasers that this is not exclusively about Koufax, but rather the LA Dodgers of those years. In fact, Koufax had superlative seasons over the next three campaigns as well, including his iconic decision to sit out the first game of the ’65 World Series which fell on Yom Kippur.

Finally, I wonder if the world is ready for a movie about the men who invented to modern baseball card?

A few items to warm the baseball fan’s soul:

  • http://cdn2.hubspot.net/hub/320279/file-798736819-jpg/images/what-me-worry-2.jpgIf I were a professional player, I would probably be classified as “uncoachable.” Not because I have a bad attitude or anything; I am the consummate team player. My problem is I can’t process instruction. I have always been a good athlete, but it came “naturally,” without anyone telling me how to do things. Could I have been better. Of course. But it seems to be a question of repetition. That’s why it amazes me when players get into prolonged slumps. A fair amount can be attributed to bad luck — the opposition plays against you perfectly — that should fall under the realm of chance, and as long as you don’t change what has worked for you all along, all other things being equal, why would you? (Here’s a great scene from Bull Durham that explains a little. Comes at about the 1:40 mark. Warning: several naughty words towards the end of the scene). I say all this by way of introduction to this piece about how Ian Kinsler wants to change his process to hit fewer pop-ups.
  • Aren’t you a little bit worried about the fact that Kevin Youkilis is going into the beer business? He never was svelte and I caneasily see him donning another 50 pounds fairly easily.

  • Ike Davis, just because I like how excited the whole team gets after a walk-off win.

With pitchers and catchers due to report in less than a month, I thought it might be a good time to see where to find out boys when the camps open. Of course, that doesn’t mean they’ll still be there come opening day…

Beer Here!

Yeah, that fits.

Kevin Youkilis has gone from lending his name to a wine to beer-making.

“Go, Jew, Go.” Sayonara, Youkilis

http://img.youtube.com/vi/SSxdMpWfQjM/0.jpgWith Kevin Youkilis trading places with new Yankees acquisition Masahiro Tanaka of the Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan, I was curious as to how he would adjust to the new culture. Sometimes it work, as in the case of Warren Cromartie; sometimes it doesn’t, as was the case for Jake Elliot (although he did, finally, come around).

I’ve been trying to get a hold of Youk, so far with no luck. So I asked Robert Whiting, author of several books on baseball in Japan, including You Gotta Have Wa and The Meaning of Ichiro: The New Wave from Japan and the Transformation of Our National Pastime, among others (including co-authoring Cromartie’s autobiography), for his thoughts. Here’s his response:

Youkilis is really well-known in Japan as the one-time teammate of Daisuke Matsuzaka when Dice-K was with the Red Sox. NHK, Japan’s leading TV network telecast nationally every game Matsuzaka pitched [for Boston].

Japanese fans liked [Youkilis] because of his intense style of playing baseball and his off-the field generosity. So I am sure he will be a big hit.

I wonder if Youkilis, now out of the Yankees clutches, will go back to the beard.

Whiting further pointed out

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-e6iTB0aFlhA/UZpIQfV1zzI/AAAAAAAAKQY/tGHSwdd4JQg/s400/tcr051913.jpgYoukilis is not the first Jewish ballplayer in Japan. There was Gabe Kapler, for one,  who was not successful, and Richie Scheinblum, for another,  who was. Scheinblum played for the Hiroshima Carp in the mid-70’s and helped them win a pennant in 1975.

According to Jim Allen, Richie wanted to wear the number 55 on his back because the Japanese reading of the number 55 is go-ju-go. But that number was already taken, so he had to pick something without a double meaning.

And the rich get richer… Update

Tanaka had an incredible season for the Rakuten Golden Eagles in 2013, undefeated in 24 decisions with a 1.72 earned run average and helping them to their first championship. The 25-year-old righty has a lifetime record of 99-35 — all with Rakuten — with 1,238 strikeouts in 1,315 innings.

This isn’t the first time a team has shelled out beaucoup bucks for a hot shot Japanese; see Hideki Irabu (Yankees, again) and and Daisuke Matsuzaka (Boston Red Sox), aka Dice-K, whose had one great year since coming to the Majors in 2007 and been poor ever since. He spent the latter part of 2013 with the New York Mets, appearing in seven games with a 3-3 record. Most infuriating to watch because he’s so S-L-O-O-O-O-W on the mound.

The Yankees also had to pay $20 million to obtain the rights to sign Tanaka. Is it any wonder so many outside the region resent the Yankees?

Coincidentally, the Gold Eagles signed Kevin Youkilis — who was a teammate to Matsuzaka while on the Red Sox — to a one-year deal for 2014.

UPDATE: Does anyone believe the Yankees are engaging in fiscal responsibility (or crying poverty), as they’ve claimed? The New York Times doesn’t.
