Calcaterra, Stark, Brown, Lashbrook
(L-R) Craig Calcaterra, Jayson Stark, and Maury Brown talk the new MLB CBA with
Dr. Lynn Lashbrook moderating

It’s turned into one of the most enjoyable and enlightening side events that takes place at the Winter Meetings: The Sports Management Worldwide Baseball Career Conference.

This year, I had the pleasure of talking the new MLB collective bargaining agreement with ESPN.com senior writer Jayson Stark, and NBCSports.com “Hardball” writer Craig Calcaterra with Dr. Lynn Lashbrook moderating.

We simply warmed up the crowd of over one-hundred. Afterwards, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak talked about the how the new CBA impacts matters and how allocating resources (a challenge with Pujols) makes remaining competitive difficult. He cited the Rockies 9-year, $141.5 deal as the only time 18 percent of salary allocation went one player on a World Series team.

From the 2011 Winter Meetings: Marlins Set the Table with 6/$106M Deal for Reyes PDF Print E-mail

Reyes

Last year, it was the Washington Nationals and the Jayson Werth deal. This year at the Baseball Winter Meetings, the bar was on Sunday when the Miami Marlins signed Mets free-agent shortstop Jose Reyes to a 6-year, $106 million deal, pending a physical.

The deal is significant on a number of levels. The Marlins, who are now flush with revenues before their new ballpark opens this spring, are clearly trying to make a (no pun intended) splash. With the signing, they make that move, of what could be more.

In terms of the structure, we don’t know how much Reyes will be paid annually, but based on the numbers, the annual average value (AAV) of the deal  is $17,666,667, ranking him as the second highest paid shortstop in MLB by AAV behind only Derek Jeter’s 3-year contract with options reached last year (AAV of $18.9 million). According to Jeff Euston of Cot’s Contracts, he will become the 27th highest-paid player in-between Ken Griffey Jr. $116.5 million 2000-08 deal and Kevin Brown’s $105 million 1999-2005 contract. It does not have a no-trade clause. The deal is technically $102 million over six years with a $4 million buyout.

But, whether it is now the trend, or the only way the Marlins could make the deal work, the risk in the deal is its length. As Joel Sherman notes, 6 years is 972 games. Here is the Reyes’ DL stints, courtesy of the Daily News and other sources:

2003: Placed on the 15-day DL on Sept. 5 with a Grade 2 left ankle sprain that ends his season.

2004: Placed on the 15-day DL on March 15 with a strained right hamstring, which keeps him sidelined until June 19.

2009: Playing with a right calf strain, Reyes leaves game on May 21 after aggravating injury. Placed on the 15-day DL, does not return that season. Leaves a minor-league rehab assignment game on June 3 with what is called "discomfort in his right calf."

--The next day, the Mets announce that Reyes has a tear in his right hamstring tendon.
-- The Mets announce on Oct. 5 that Reyes will have offseason surgery to clean up scar tissue around the hamstring tendon.

2010: Placed on 15-day DL with hyperactive thyroid, reinstated April 10.

--On June 30, suffers a injury to right side in batting practice, misses six games.

-- On July 10, he re-aggravates injury, does not return until July 20.

--Removed from a game on Aug. 26 after aggravating oblique injury. Does not return until Sept. 10.

2011: Placed on 15-day DL for hamstring injury on July 7 misses 12 games.

-- Aug 8, placed on 15-day DL for left hamstring, comes back on Aug 28.

Finally, watch how the deal is finally structured. As of now, we only know total years and dollars. It is possible that the contract will be frontloaded – larger salary early in the contract as the Marlins have more money to play with, than in later years. That could be good or bad. It’s good in that if Reyes does hit the injured list often, the Marlins will be in a position to move him easier. It’s bad in that if attendance doesn’t hold, or if the Marlins continues to spend aggressively in free agency this off-season on high-cost talent, the club could be constrained.

Bottom line, the deal is a gamble in terms of length. Reyes showed that he’s the premiere plum of the shortstop crop this off-season.

2011 Baseball Winter Meetings

DALLAS - Each year since MLB graciously accepted my request, I have attended the Baseball Winter Meetings. They are, in my mind, the most worthwhile sporting event that I attend each year.

SEE Inside the 2011 Baseball Winter Meetings in Dallas

There are a host of reasons…. Transactions, meeting with league, and club executives, seeing what’s going on with MLB Network, getting together with the media brethren.

So, as it has been in years past, I am now in Dallas where the Meetings will begin in earnest tomorrow.

Here’s what you can expect from The Biz of Baseball :

  • Reports here, and many mini-reports via my Twitter account @BizballMaury
  • Details on Monday from the Sports Management Worldwide Baseball Career Conference. I am speaking on the “CBA panel” with ESPN’s Jayson Stark and NBCSports.com’s Craig Calcaterra. But the conference has much more… Tracy Ringolsby, Rob Neyer, and Will Carroll are on the “Media panel”. Special guest speakers include MLB Network’s Harold Reynolds and World Series Champion Cardinals GM, John Mozeliak.
  • Monday evening I’ll be attending the Trade Show gala, and will be giving reports from there.
  • I’ll also be doing a story on the “Women Leadership in Baseball” conference here for Forbes.
  • Along the way, there’s a mountain of other little reported on aspects I’ll be giving you.

The Winter Meetings officially start Monday, but look for material here and on Twitter starting, well… now.

Valentine Introduced as New Manager of Red Sox: "I'm honored, I'm humbled and I'm pretty damn excited." PDF Print E-mail

Bobby Valentine press conference
(L-R) Larry Lucchino, Ben Cherington, Bobby Valentine, and John Henry at the end of
the press conference introducing Valentine as the new manager of the Boston Red Sox

Bobby Valentine was introduced today as the 45th manager of the Boston Red Sox, and in it showed that the club that saw an epic collapse in 2011 was looking for a veteran leader, signing him to atwo-year contract with club options for 2014 and 2015.

Even though Valentine hasn’t managed in the majors since 2006, the man that once snuck back into the dugout wearing a fake mustache after being ejected, was unscripted and, at times, emotional as he welled up with tears.

"The talent level and the players that we have in this organization is a gift to anyone and I'm the receiver of that gift," said the 61-year-old Valentine, adding, “I'm honored, I'm humbled and I'm pretty damn excited."

“We are thrilled to welcome Bobby as the manager of the Red Sox, and I’m eager to begin working closely with him in our preparations for the 2012 season,” said new Red Sox GM Ben Cherington in a statement. “He is one of the brightest baseball minds I have encountered, with a wealth of experience in the game, an unmatched passion for winning and a proven track record of success in demanding environments.  In Bobby, we have the right man to lead the Red Sox.”

During the press conference Cherington offered thanks toPete Mackanin, Sandy Alomar Jr., Torey Lovullo, Dale Sveum, and Gene LaMont, who was the other finalist along with Valentine, for the management position left open when Terry Francona’s contract was not renewed.

Valentine has more than 40 years in professional baseball, previously serving in parts of 15 seasons as a Major League manager with the Texas Rangers (1985-92) and New York Mets (1996-2002), compiling a 1,117-1,072 (.510) record.  He ranks fourth among active managers in games and fifth in wins.  The Stamford, CT native becomes the sixth Red Sox manager born in New England and the second from Connecticut, joining Meriden’s Jack Barry, who managed the club in 1917.

His previous managerial experience includes parts of two seasons at the helm of the Mets Triple-A Norfolk club in 1994 and 1996, and seven years over two stints with the Chiba Lotte Marines of Japan’s Pacific League in 1995 and 2004-09.  In 2005, Valentine led the Marines to their first Pacific League pennant in 31 years and a four-game sweep of the Japan Series for the Nippon Professional Baseball Championship.  Chiba Lotte also won the inaugural Asia Series that year, defeating the Samsung Lions of the Korea Baseball Organization.  Valentine was presented with the 2005 Matsutaro Shoriki Award, given to an individual who makes great contributions to professional baseball in Japan.

At the end of the interview for the photo op with John Henry and Larry Lucchino joining Cherington and Valentine, the now new manager put his hand on top of his GM’s with the two owners doing likewise in a sign of solidarity. “I know it’s corny, but…,” Valentine said.

Drug TestThe annual report issued by released jointly by MLB and the MLBPA as part of Major League Baseball’s drug program shows that of 3868 tests for performance-enhancing drugs and/or stimulants were performed with a total of 26 positive test, or less than 1 percent (0.41%) in 2011, a slight decrease from 0.47% in 2010.

The report, which covers the time from the beginning of the 2010-2011 Major League Baseball off-season to the end of the 2011 MLB post-season, had one PED positive for Clomiphene. That player was Manny Ramirez who retired from the league rather than face a 100-game suspension for a second violation of the drug program.

As part of MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, players that test positive a first time for stimulants are not suspended, nor are names released of those in violation of the program. A player that tests positive for stimulants a first time is simply subjected to follow-up testing. There were 12 such positives this year for Adderall (8), Clobenzorex (1), d-amphetamine (1), Methylhexanamine (1) and Oxilofrine (1)

Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs), which allow a player to use banned substances based upon approved medical needs, totaled 112 in the report, down from 110 last year and 118 the year prior. The breakdown of TUES is nearly identical to last year's report with the addition of one player being granted the exemption for Post-Concussion Sytndrome.

Below is a breakdown of TUEs over the time of the report released today:

Theraputic Use Exemptions (TUEs)
Exemption
#
Attention Deficit Disorder 105
Hypertension
2
Hypogonadism
1
Post-Concussion Syndrome
2
Narcolepsy
1
Total
111

The number of tests have increased in each of the years that MLB and the MLBPA have had the JDA and released had the Independent Program Administrator, Bryan W. Smith, M.D., Ph.D., file his report. In 2008 there were 3486 tests with 19 players having adverse analytical findings while in 2009 there were 3722 tests with 13 adverse analytical findings. Last year there were 3747 with 17 adverse analytical findings.

The Detroit Tigers have been named the 2011 MLB “Club Retailer of the Year” by Major League Baseball Properties for the Club’s commitment to driving merchandise sales. Regular season retail sales at Comerica Park in 2011 increased +26% over the 2010 season. Sales for MLB Authentication memorabilia, which are game-used and autographed items that are marked with a unique, searchable hologram by a third-party authenticator, have increased 100% from 2008 to 2011. The MLB Authentication Program is the first league-wide memorabilia authentication initiative in professional sports and has become an industry standard.

Since its inception in 2005, the MLB “Club Retailer of the Year” Award has been awarded based on a combination of hard sales data, vendor/customer feedback and creative marketing and merchandising efforts.  The Detroit Tigers opened a new 6,000 square-foot store, named “The D Shop” in April 2011.  Within the new D Shop is a MLB Authentication Collection area with wood displays and glass etched cabinets which have enhanced the presence and presentation of authenticated memorabilia.  The D Shop also has an expanded assortment of women’s and kid’s apparel as well as Big & Tall (3X – 6X) and over 300 styles and designs of hats/headwear.

"The Detroit Tigers are honored to be recognized by Major League Baseball Properties as Club Retailer of the Year," said Duane McLean, Detroit Tigers' Executive Vice President of Business Operations. "This recognition is a tribute to the passionate Tigers fans everywhere who proudly wear the iconic old English 'D'. This is also a tribute to members of our organization and to the staff at Sportservice who work diligently to provide Tigers fans with unique and quality merchandise and authentic memorabilia."

“Tigers fans are able to express their enthusiasm and passion for their team thanks to the club’s commitment to offering a variety of merchandise and apparel at the ballpark’s new ‘D Shop’ store,” said Howard Smith, Senior Vice President, Licensing, Major League Baseball. “As a result of this aggressive approach, especially with authenticated game-used memorabilia, the Tigers have put themselves in an ideal situation to capitalize on their on-field success.”

Previous recipients of the award have included the Seattle Mariners in 2005, New York Mets in 2006, Philadelphia Phillies in 2007, Milwaukee Brewers in 2008 and Cincinnati Reds in 2010 (award not given in 2009).
