GMs Conflicted On Heywards Chances At $200M Contract - RealGM Wiretap
A number of baseball executives were polled by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports on whether or not Jason Heyward's next contract will be worth more than $200 million.
Just 10 players in Major League history have signed for that amount http://www.hockeyhurricanesproshop.com/victor-rask-jersey/ , all in the last few years.
Heyward's numbers may not indicate that he's a $200 million player, but one general manager foresees him getting at least close to $200 million as a free agent.
"He's the best defensive right fielder in the game. He's young. He has upside. He's a leader with great makeup. And his WAR is higher than Giancarlo Stanton," the GM pointed out.
Heyman polled six other general managers who don't believe Heyward will flirt with a $200 million contract.
However, one of the GMs wouldn't rule out such a deal if Heyward has a huge season for the St. Louis Cardinals.
"It only takes one," that GM pointed out.
Hamilton Boos Louder Than Any Playoff Game - RealGM Wiretap
Josh Hamilton expected to hear boos at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington when he returned for the first time as a member of the Los Angeles Angels.
Hamilton made things worse for himself in his postgame news conference. Clearly upset by the fan response, he said it was the loudest he's ever heard the park.
"I can't say that I didn't expect it," Hamilton said. "I will never take back what I said until they show up every night for 30 years. But I'm glad I can help create spirit and fire in this town. Honestly, man, that was louder than any playoff game I've ever been to so I'm excited for them about that. Hopefully the fans can carry that on through the season."
Cingrani Notches Four Strikeout Inning For Reds - RealGM Wiretap
Cincinnati Reds left-hander Tony Cingrani, making just his third Major League start, accomplished a rare feat on Sunday afternoon.

Cingrani also tied a career high with nine strikeouts and got his first Major League hit against the Washington Nationals.
锘? More than 50 million Americans participated in the sport of bowling at least once last year. About 4 million participate in a weekly league each year. While these figures are not as high as they were in the bowling peak of the 1960's and 70's it is easy to see that bowling is still a wildly popular sport.
For many people their first exposure to bowling is a recreational outing of some sort, a birthday party, a school function, a family outing, a date, etc. For many it ends there http://www.hockeyhurricanesproshop.com/teuvo-teravainen-jersey/ , they have decided they either had a bad experience, or just have no desire to explore the sport further. Others, maybe got lucky, threw a few strikes and are now hooked, they would like to learn to play the game better, and maybe even bowl in a league, or competitively.
Getting from the raw beginner stage to an intermediate level, does involve some education, just getting on the approach and throwing the ball as hard as you can in the general direction of the pins is not going to allow consistent high scores.
Lets begin with an overview of where the game is played. A bowling center usually consists of an even number of lanes anything from 2 and up; some centers have 80 plus lanes. A bowling lane is 60 feet long, 41 to 42 inches wide, with a 9 and 14 inch gutter on each side for errant balls, there is a foul line at the start of the bowling surface that you must stay behind, and an approach area of about 15 feet. At one time all lanes were constructed of 39 maple boards placed on edge and laminated together, however over time wood wears down and needs an expensive refinishing job. Many lanes are now constructed with an approved plastic surface that does not wear as easily; these surfaces are stamped the still look like the original wood boards. When you hear someone refer to the 5 board or really any other board number, start counting at 1 from the right.
Originally, there were no markings allowed on the lane surface, accomplished bowlers would identify a wood grain feature in the area they wanted their ball to cross and use that as a target. Now there are consistent targets in the form of locater dots, arrows, and others embedded or stamped into the surface of the lane http://www.hockeyhurricanesproshop.com/sebastian-aho-jersey/ , these targets are a great help in controls how your ball gets to your target. The locater dots are allowed at specific distances from the foul line both on the lane and on the approach, the seven arrows are placed from 12 to 16 feet from the foul line starting with the 5 board, then the 10 board and so on and are usually arranged in a pattern with the center arrow farther away, however they could also be in a line across the lane. The other 4 equally placed targets, if used are at about 33 feet down the lane, and are a visual clue as to where your ball should start hooking into the pins.
The approach and basic delivery will be described for a right handed bowler, if you are left handed, you will just reverse most of the instructions.
Let's begin with the stance and approach, you stand on the approach facing the foul line in a relaxed stance, the bowling ball is held in your right hand, with your hand roughly under and supporting the ball, your arm is positioned to the right side so as to allow your arm to swing back and forward, your feet should be together with your left foot a little ahead of your right. To determine the correct starting point on the approach takes a little experimentation. The correct approach begins with a step forward with your right foot, usually consists of 3,5,or 7 steps ending with a controlled slide to the foul line on your left foot. Now stand on the approach with your .
