Gonzo to be top analyst for Fox PDF Print E-mail
Media News (Television, Radio, Internet)
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 11 October 2006 03:18

GonzoLuis Gonzalez is proving that he has talent beyond just the playing field.

"Gonzo" has been calling games in the postseason for ESPN radio, and will make the jump straight to the broadcast booth for Fox tonight working with their A-lineup of Joe Buck and Tim McCarver when they call Game 1 of the NLCS between the Cardinals and the Mets.

As reported:

"Being still an active player, you tiptoe the line a little bit," says Gonzalez, who also called ESPN Radio playoff games. "I consider it a unique opportunity. And still being on the field gives me a different perspective."

Especially historical perspective. "I'm an old-school player," he says. "Now I'm seeing a new generation where some things are totally different. Like how they hang out. When I came up to the majors in 1990, players stayed two or three hours in the locker rooms, had a couple cold ones and talked baseball. Now maybe a handful of guys are left after games. Everybody's off doing their own thing."

Gonzalez, who joked that he should "ride out on a donkey into the sunset" after being released by the Arizona Diamondbacks, says he won't name teams he's interested in "because some are still playing. And I don't want to knock out the others." Eventually, he'd like a "limited" TV role — as opposed to a being a full-time team broadcaster — because as the father of triplets, age 8, "I want to see my kids grow up."

Ticket Prices to Increase for Rockies PDF Print E-mail
MLB News
Written by The Staff   
Sunday, 08 October 2006 12:00

RockiesFor the first time since 2000, the Colorado Rockies plan to raise ticket prices next season. While the team finished last in the NL West, club president Keli McGregor cited the Rockies' nine-win jump from 2005 and 35 days spent in first place in the division as positive signs of improvement. The club sees that as signs of progress and the "nominal price increase in most areas" will allow the club to continue to grow.

As reported:

Tickets will rise as much as 10 percent, with an infield box seat, for instance, going from $27 per game to $30.

The question on most fans' minds Monday was whether the additional money would be infused into the team's payroll. Owner Dick Monfort said recently that the payroll would go up from last season's $42 million. A final figure, however, won't be determined until budget meetings next week, according to McGregor.

"I don't see why over a period of time we can't keep this core group of players together and we want to improve on  that," McGregor said from his office Monday.

White Sox + 7:11= $1.5 million PDF Print E-mail

7 ElevenThere are sponsorship deals, and then there are sponsorship deals. Someone in the While Sox organization is smarter than the average sales person.

Starting next season, White Sox games won't start at 7:05 or at 7:35, but rather 7:11. Yes, the convenience store chain has inked a deal with the club that will switch the start times. How much will they pay the White Sox in return? Approx. $500,000 each year for 3 years.

As reported:

“It’s a fun way to insert our name into fans’ hearts and minds,” said Margaret Chabris, a 7-Eleven spokeswoman. “We think it’s worth way more than $500,000.” She said that 7-Eleven is talking to other baseball teams about sponsorship deals that would include starting their games at 7:11.

The shift to 7:11 at U.S. Cellular Field was not envisioned when the team and 7-Eleven were working on the details of a sponsorship deal that would have kept the starting times at 7:05 and 7:35. But team executives said that 7-Eleven wanted a new wrinkle to the more traditional sponsorship they were working on, which includes 25,000 giveaway coupons at each game.

There are, by the way, 185 7-Elevens in the area; the company recently acquired 202 local stores from the White Hen Pantry chain, which prompted 7-Eleven’s desire to increase its presence in what it views as a growth market. “It made sense to sponsor the White Sox,” Chabris said.

A's to Open Upper Deck for World Series PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, 10 October 2006 10:50

Athletics TarpEditors Note: For those unaware, the upper deck of McAfee Coliseum has been tarped off by the A's for the entire 2006 season, the Division Series, and will be for the ALCS games in Oakland.

MLB advises the clubs as to what the gross ticket revenue should be for each playoff round based on their seating capacity. The clubs then scale the house accordingly. That is why you'll see varying ticket prices for each venue.

 A’s to Open Third Deck for Potential World Series Home Games
Additional 11,406 Tickets Will Be Made Available to Registered Fans

OAKLAND, Calif. – At the request of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Allan H. “Bud” Selig, A’s Managing Partner Lew Wolff and A’s President Michael Crowley, agreed to make seating available in the third deck for any potential World Series games played at McAfee Coliseum.

The opening of the third deck will create an additional 11,406 seats per game which will be made available to the randomly selected winners from the 125,000 fans who pre-registered to purchase World Series tickets through the team’s website, oaklandathletics.com, from September 28 to October 9.  Randomly selected winners will be notified by e-mail with instructions for ordering.

Major League Baseball has priced the tickets at $150.

Since 1968, the Athletics have been involved in postseason play 15 times, winning four World Series titles (1972-74, 1989), six American League pennants (1972-74; 1988-90), 14 AL West Division championships (1971-75; 1981; 1988-90; 1992; 2000; 2002-03; 2006), along with one Wild Card appearance (2001). Only the Atlanta Braves (16) and New York Yankees (15) have won more division championships and only the New York Yankees have won more world championships (6) and league pennants (10) during that span.

From the franchise’s inception in 1901, the Athletics have won 15 American League pennants and nine world championships. Only the Yankees (26) have won more World Series titles.

Fox Taps MySpace to Stream MLB Games PDF Print E-mail

Fox is working the web tokeep audiences in touch with the MLB playoffs. What is interesting, is that Fox is tapping MySpace.

As reported:

Last week the network, in conjunction with the Fox Television Stations Group, launched Fox on Demand, a new platform on the News Corp.-owned MySpace.com designed to allow viewers to stream ad-supported full-length episodes of a host of Fox's top prime-time shows.

Visitors to MySpace.com/fox, along with Fox's local owned-and-operated affiliate Web sites in 24 markets, are able to stream previously run episodes of the shows Bones, Prison Break, Standoff, Vanished, Talk Show With Spike Feresten, 'Til Death, The Loop and Justice.

The idea behind the new platform, says Fox, is to allow these shows' fans to stay connected with their favorite programs during the Major League Baseball playoffs, which hijack much of the network's schedule during the month of October. But it also also allows new fans to catch up on shows.

Group looks to bring baseball back to Lorain PDF Print E-mail
Latest MiLB News
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 04 October 2006 12:00

A group of supporters hopes to bring baseball back to Lorain, OH, either in the form of an Independent League club, or Minor League club, possibly associated with the Indians.

Bambi Dillon, a resident who supports bringing a professional team to the city, said a group is organizing a meeting to try and find out how much interest there is in Lorain and the surrounding area for a team.

'It's a quality of life issue,'' said Randy Renick, another member of the group. Renick is the former coach of the Lorain Internationals, a semi-pro baseball team which no longer exists.

Renick said he thinks Lorain is big enough to support a minor league professional team, and many people are looking for a low-cost alternative to Cleveland Indians games.

The Mayor of Lorain, Craig Foltin supports the idea.

'These are people acting on their own, who are certainly no political allies of mine, by any stretch of the imagination,'' Foltin said. ''I'm glad to see some prominent sporting individuals taking a leadership role in this cause.''

Torre Back with Yankees Next Season PDF Print E-mail
MLB News
Written by The Staff   
Tuesday, 10 October 2006 06:33

Joe TorreIf there's a lesson to be learned, it's that news spins on the head of a pin.

We reported yesterday that Joe Torre would be out as manager of the Yankees. Apparently, George Steinbrenner didn't get the memo.

Torre held his season ending press conference today and announced that he will remain as dugout manager for the Yankees, at least for the time being.

As reported:

"I just got off the phone with George Steinbrenner and he told me I'll be the manager next year," Torre said Tuesday during a gathering with reporters at Yankee Stadium.

Thus apparently ends three days of speculation about the future of Torre, who has managed the Yankees to four World Series titles and six American League pennants in 11 seasons.

"I'm very excited about it," Torre said. "This has been the best job of my life."

Word is that GM Brian Cashman lobbied hard for Torre, as did Derek Jeter.

The announcement does not mean that change isn't in the air for the club. Alex Rodriguez may be the first order of business on Tuesday when the front office of the Yankees meet to plan for next season.

Girardi voted Manager of the Year by NL peers PDF Print E-mail
MLB News
Written by The Staff   
Tuesday, 10 October 2006 04:22

GiardiJoe Girardi has been voted by his fellow peers as The Sporting News National League Manager of the Year. The Sporting News will make the announcement today.

Girardi earned 6 votes by his fellow NL managers, just edging the Mets’ Willie Randolph, who collected 5 votes.

Girardi was able to take a roster primarily with 22 rookies and a payroll under $15 million and keep them in the Wild Card hunt until the last 2 weeks of the season.

However, getting his players to overachieve did not save him his job. Girardi was fired last week after friction between him, owner Jeffery Loria, and GM Larry Beinfest.

As reported:

Last week Girardi was asked if it would be poetic justice to be honored as the league's top manager after being fired at the conclusion of his debut season.

"No," he said, "because I didn't take the job to win Manager of the Year. I took the job to win a World Series. Bottom line. We didn't win the World Series."That's not to say Girardi isn't appreciative of the effort given on his behalf.

"People made predictions we were going to lose over 100 games," he said. "People thought we were going to lose more games than any team in baseball. We didn't, and that was because the players worked at it [and] coaches prepared the players. I am forever grateful."

Giardi is seen as a top candidate for any number of managerial vacancies including the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals.

Has MLB Licked the Parity Issue? PDF Print E-mail

There have been several articles this week and last talking about MLB and parity, with yours truly guilty, as well. Every year, writers will go over payroll figures and look to see whether MLB is still a case of big spenders controlling the post season -- something that has been MLB's Achilles’ heel for some time. In the case of parity, or more correctly, disparity in MLB, it has been the lack of a salary cap that has been the culprit.

This season, however, sees clubs with low to mid-level payrolls going deeper into the playoffs than in years prior, which Selig and Co. will surely point to when saying that revenue sharing is doing what it was meant to do: give all 30 clubs an even playing field in which to compete with the Yankees and the Red Soxs of the world. But what is the press thinking? What have I found in researching?

Here’s some samples…
