As we head into the final 10 days of the Blue Jays stay in Florida, there a couple of areas of concern. Cheap Air Max 97 Wholesale . For one, the Jays havent scored more than five runs in 13-straight games. Of course, in the spring, the full everyday line-up is rarely together for more than a couple of games a week and even then, only a few innings at a time. Ryan Goins, for all he is capable of doing with the glove at second base, is only hitting .168 at last glance. Brandon Morrow, counted on so heavily this season, has had trouble commanding his four-seam fastball and has seemingly been dropped to the number-five slot in the rotatioon. On the flip side of that, Drew Hutchison has looked so good that he has been elavated to the number-two position in the rotation between R.A Dickey and lefty Mark Buehrle. Closer Casey Janssen started camp with should soreness, but he apppears to be doing well, throwing on the side and assures everyone he will be ready for opening day, despite not having seen any game action yet. J.A. Happs sore back seems to be coming around and hes been slotted in again as the number-four starter. The Jays Grapefruit Circuit record is only 7-10, but those records are rarely an indication of how a team is going to do in the regular season. A year ago, the Jays were 16-17 in Florida, yet only won 74 games for the 2013 campaign. St. Louis won the National League pennant after going just 16-15 in the spring. The Boston Red Sox played .500 ball in the sunny south at 17-17 in its first year under skipper John Farrell and then went on to beat the Cardinals in the World Series. In 2012, their final year with Farrell as manager, the Blue Jays went a scorching 24-7 in Dunedin, tops in the Majors, with a run differential of plus-79, yet they went on to stumble to just 73 wins during the season. The Detroit Tigers, though, werent too far behind the Jays at 20-8 and they made it to the World Series against San Francisco. The Giants had been 18-15 that spring and went on to win their second Fall Classic in three years. In 2011, the Kansas City Royals went 25-7, while the Seattle Mariners were 22-11. The Royals still havent made the playoffs since winning the World Series in 1985 and the Mariners havent made the playoffs in a dozen years. The most exciting aspect of spring training is watching the breakout performances of young players, as is with the case of the Jays Drew Hutchison this spring. The rest of it is just about hoping your team can open the season healthy and can come close to living up to expectations. - Injuries could play a part in the American League West race and, in turn, the Wild Card. Two of the Oakland As starters are down with arm troubles. Jarrod Parker has forearm stiffness, which can be a precursor to ellow trouble, and the 25-year-old righty already had one Tommy John surgery in 2009. A.J. Griffin has elbow issues as well, and will find out shortly if he needs Tommy John. Meanwhile, Seattles number-two starter Hisashi Iwakuma is recovering from a sprained ligament in the middle finger of his pitching hand and is iffy, at best, for the start of season. The Ms top pitching prospect, Taijuan Walker, has bursitis in his shoulder and will likely start the season in the minors on rehab. - Some of the National Leagues better clubs havent escaped the injury bug, either. Atlanta Braves starter Kris Medlen likely needs his seond Tommy John and Brandon Beachy could also be on track for his second. The Braves are also keeping a close watch on Mike Minors shoulder. Arizona Diamondbacks ace lefty Patrick Corbin is currently seeking a second opinion on whether or not he needs Tommy John. If that isnt bad enough for the D-Backs, the recently signed Bronson Arroyo, an iron man with the Cincinnati Reds, is out indefinately with a disc problem in his back. The Philadelphia Phllies, of course, lost Roy Halladay to retirement. Now their number-one starter, Cole Hamels, is dealing with left shoulder fatigue. Though hes starting to feel better throwing on the side, there is no guarantee Hamels will be ready for Opening Day. - I guess you could call it a Panama "Root Canal" for the New York Yankees over the weekend. While on their special goodwill tour of Panama, the home of their now retired future Hall of Fame closer, Mariano Rivera, the Yanks were no-hit by the Miami Marlins. It happened on Saturday at a jam-packed Rod Carew Stadium. The Marlins Brad Hand started off by throwing five perfect innings and striking out six. Steve Cishek came in for a scorless sixth-inning before A.J. Ramos blanked the Yankees in the next two innings and then Arquimedes Caminero finished off the no-no in the ninth. - We talked about a lot of the pitching injuries, but this one appears to be both serious and mysterious. Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias, a key pick-up from Boston in a three-way deal last season, has a severe case of shin splints in both legs caused by a problem with his feet. He could miss a large chunk of this season, maybe even the entire season, leaving Detroit without a legit number-one shortstop. - Its not exactly a Babe Ruth-ian differential, but the Baltimore Orioles Chris Davis had indeed a special season in the home run department last year. Daviss MLB-best 53 homers was nine better than American League runner-up Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers and 17 up on the National League co-leaders Pedro Alvarez of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the D-Backs Paul Goldschmidt at 36. The last time that happened was 2010, when the Blue Jays Jose Bautista slugged 54 homers, 15 more than AL runner-up Paul Konerko of the Chicago White Sox at 39 and 12 more than NL leader Albert Pujols, then of the Cardinals, at 42. Wholesale Air Max 97 Ireland . Over the course of his career Glenn is 79-71-1 in 151 starts for a .526 career winning percentage. Since becoming a Stampeder, he has elevated his play and raised his stock around the league. Air Max 97 Ireland . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning. http://www.cheapairmax97ireland.com/ . The Indians scored twice in the top of the ninth, getting the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by closer Matt Lindstrom. Axford (0-1) came in seeking his fifth save in as many chances.Scott Cullen digs into the numbers to make his picks for awards, Gold Gloves, All-Surprise and All-Disappointing teams for the 2013 Major League Baseball season. AL MVP Mike Trout, CF, L.A. Angels (27 HR, 97 RBI, 33 SB, .323 AVG, .988 OPS) Runners Up: Miguel Cabrera, 3B, Detroit (44 HR, 137 RBI, .348 AVG, 1.078 OPS) Chris Davis, 1B, Baltimore (53 HR, 138 RBI, .286 AVG, 1.004 OPS) It may not be as glaring as last year, when he was passed over -- and hell surely be overlooked for Cabrera again this year -- but Mike Trouts complete game just cant be ignored. This isnt an indictment of Cabrera, whose OPS was a career high despite a late-season slump. But the reason that Cabrera is going to win is because his team reached the postseason while Trouts team finished below .500 and were still at the point where individual awards get viewed through the prism of team accomplishments. By the way, epic season, Chris Davis, but its only good enough for third. NL MVP Andrew McCutchen, CF, Pittsburgh (21 HR, 84 RBI, 27 SB, .317 AVG, .911 OPS) Runners-up: Paul Goldschmidt, 1B, Arizona (36 HR, 125 RBI, 15 SB, .302 AVG, .952 OPS) Joey Votto, 1B, Cincinnati (24 HR, 73 RBI, .305 AVG, .926 OPS) A strong finish to the season lifted McCutchen past the two first basemen who have excelling all season. That McCutchen plays a much more demanding position cant be overlooked in the final analysis and he even has the narrative working for him after the Pirates reached the playoffs for the first time in 20 years. I tend to avoid pitchers as MVP, but this could be a year in which an ace starter, Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw, warrants selection. AL CY YOUNG Max Scherzer, Detroit (21-3, 2.90 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 240 K, 214 1/3 IP) Runners Up: Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle (14-6, 2.66 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 185 K, 219 2/3 IP) Yu Darvish, Texas (13-9, 2.83 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 277 K, 209 2/3IP) While those using an outdated measure like a pitchers record can take comfort in Scherzers 21-3 mark, he appeals to the advanced stats crowd too, with a 6.4 fWAR, which is second-best in baseball and his 10.08 strikeouts per nine innings, which also ranks second, behind Darvish (11.89). Both Darvish and Iwakuma left a high percentage of runners on base, ranking first and second, respectively and, as a result, ranked third and fourth in the American League in ERA. NL CY YOUNG Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles (16-9, 1.83 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, 232 K, 236 IP) Runners-up: Adam Wainwright, St. Louis (19-9, 2.94 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 219 K, 241 2/3 IP) Matt Harvey, N.Y. Mets (9-5, 2.27 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 191 K, 178 1/3 IP) Its a testament to how great Kershaw has been this season that its not even a race for the NL Cy Young, even though the performances of Wainwright, Harvey, Madison Bumgarner, Cliff Lee and Jose Fernandez were outstanding too. Kershaw is in his own class, though, allowing two or fewer earned runs in 26 of his 33 starts. AL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR Wil Myers, RF, Tampa Bay (13 HR, 53 RBI, .293 AVG, .831 OPS) Runners Up: Dan Straily, LHP, Oakland (10-8, 3.96 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, 124 K, 152 1/3 IP) Jose Iglesias, SS/3B, Detroit (3 HR, 29 RBI, .303 AVG, .735 OPS) The American League rookie class is ugly enough that a little more than half a season of Wil Myers is good enough to win by a reasonably comfortable margin. Strailys strong finish (1.95 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in his last half dozen starts) lifts him ahead of the rest of the contenders, but the AL rookies arent nearly as compelling as those in the National League. NL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR Jose Fernandez, RHP, Miami (12-6, 2.19 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 187 K, 172 2/3 IP) Runners-up: Yasiel Puig, RF, Los Angeles (19 HR, 42 RBI, 11 SB, .319 AVG, .925 OPS) Hyun-Jin Ryu, LHP, Los Angeles (14-8, 3.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 154 K, 192 IP) It looked like Puig would be a shoo-in to win this award, taking the league by storm from the moment he arrived, but Fernandez posted a 1.32 ERA in the second half, leading all NL pitchers and maintaining the gap ahead of the Dodgers Puig and Ryu. Such was the depth of the National League rookie class that Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado, Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko, Diamondbacks CF A.J. Pollock and Cardinals RHP Shelby Miller all had fine seasons but didnt do enough to get consideration. GOLD GLOVESC - Russell Martin, Pittsburgh Runners-up: Yadier Molina, St. Louis; A.J. Ellis, Los Angeles An incredible season for Martin, who led in Defensive Runs Saved, just ahead of the always brilliant Molinaa. Cheap Air Max 97 Sale. Ellis threw out 44.4% of the runners that tried to steal on him, best among starting catchers. 1B - Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs Runners-up: Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona; Brandon Belt, San Francisco Rizzo and Goldschmidt were 1-2 in Defensive Runs Saved and while Belt wasnt that high, he fared better in Ultimate Zone Rating. 2B - Dustin Pedroia, Boston Runners-up: Darwin Barney, Chicago; Ben Zobrist, Tampa Bay Its a toss-up between Pedroia and Barney, with Pedroia having more Defensive Runs Saved and Barney an edge in Ultimate Zone Rating. 3B - Manny Machado, Baltimore Runners-up: Nolan Arenado, Colorado; Juan Uribe, Los Angeles Both Machado and Arenado are exceptional in the field, and Machado gets the nod because he played 280 more innings at the hot corner. Uribe and Evan Longoria are very good too, but a notable step behind the two young third basemen. SS - Andrelton Simmons, Atlanta Runners-up: Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado; Yunel Escobar, Tampa Bay Its remarkable how far ahead Simmons is compared to the rest of the shortstops in baseball, but hes miles ahead by every metric. In addition to Tulowitzki and Escobar, Pedro Florimon and Alcides Escobar are pretty handy with the glove too. LF - Starling Marte, Pittsburgh Runners-up: Alex Gordon, Kansas City; Andy Dirks, Detroit Marte has been excellent, but Gordon closed the gap as the year wound down. Dirks holds a slight edge over Yoenis Cespedes, Carl Crawford and David Murphy. CF - Carlos Gomez, Milwaukee Runners-up: Juan Lagares, N.Y. Mets; A.J. Pollock, Arizona Gomez has always been an outstanding fielder and is the head of the class this year, but maybe only because Lagares didnt play a full-time role for the Mets, as Lagares had a better UZR/150 and more Defensive Runs Saved per game/inning played. RF - Shane Victorino, BostonRunners-up: Gerardo Parra, Arizona; Josh Reddick, Oakland Victorino is a natural centre fielder and Parra plays all three spots, so there is likely something to the range theyve shown in other positions manifesting itself in right field performance. Reddick fields well enough to stay in the lineup despite a bad year at the plate and just enough to stay ahead of Jay Bruce for a runner-up spot. (I realize there are Gold Gloves awarded in both leagues. Im just trying to recognize the best fielders at each position.) ALL-SURPRISE TEAM C - Jason Castro, Houston (18 HR, 56 RBI, .276 AVG, .835 OPS) 1B - Chris Davis, Baltimore (53 HR, 138 RBI, .286 AVG, 1.004 OPS) 2B - Matt Carpenter, St. Louis (11 HR, 78 RBI, .318 AVG, .873 OPS) SS - Jean Segura, Milwaukee (12 HR, 49 RBI, 44 SB, .294 AVG, .752 OPS) 3B - Josh Donaldson, Oakland (24 HR, 93 RBI, .301 AVG, .883 OPS) LF - Starling Marte, Pittsburgh (12 HR, 35 RBI, 41 SB, .280 AVG, .784 OPS) CF - Coco Crisp, Oakland (22 HR, 66 RBI, 21 SB, .261 AVG, .779 OPS) RF - Jayson Werth, Washington (25 HR, 82 RBI, .318 AVG, .931 OPS) SP - Anibal Sanchez, Detroit (14-8, 2.57 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 202 K, 182 IP) SP - Matt Harvey, N.Y. Mets (9-5, 2.27 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 191 K, 178 1/3 IP) SP - Jose Fernandez, Miami (12-6, 2.19 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 187 K, 172 2/3 IP) SP - Bartolo Colon, Oakland (18-6, 2.65 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 117 K, 190 1/3 IP) SP - Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle (14-6, 2.66 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 185 K, 219 2/3 IP) RP - Koji Uehara, Boston (21 SV, 1.09 ERA, 0.57 WHIP) ALL-DISAPPOINTING TEAM C - Miguel Montero, Arizona (11 HR, 42 RBI, .230 AVG, .642 OPS) 1B - Albert Pujols, L.A. Angels (17 HR, 64 RBI, .258 AVG, .767 OPS) 2B - Danny Espinosa, Washington (3 HR, 12 RBI, .158 AVG, .465 OPS) SS - Starlin Castro, Chicago Cubs (10 HR, 44 RBI, .245 AVG, .631 OPS) 3B - David Freese, St. Louis (9 HR, 60 RBI, .262 AVG, .721 OPS) LF - Josh Willingham, Minnesota (14 HR, 48 RBI, .208 AVG, .709 OPS) CF - B.J. Upton, Atlanta (9 HR, 26 RBI, 12 SB, .184 AVG, .557 OPS) RF - Josh Hamilton, L.A.
