A star on a pitching mound and a hero on the battlefields, Warren Spahn excelled in two far different uniforms. Arguably the greatest southpaw pitcher in big league history, whose 363 triumphs makes him the all-time winningest left-handed hurler in the game, he used his mound mastery to gain admittance into the national pastime’s most exclusive club – the National Baseball Hall of Fame – in 1973.

But fellow Hall of Famer Stan Musial had his doubts as to whether Spahn, a major league pitcher until his mid-40s, would ever be honored in Cooperstown, New York, once half-jokingly stating, “I don’t think Spahn will ever get into the Hall of Fame. He’ll never stop pitching.”

Spahn made his big league debut with the Boston Braves in 1942, the same year he would join the Army. Over the next four years he would participate in the Battle of the Bulge and the taking of the bridge at Remagen. A true war hero, he was awarded a Purple Heart for shrapnel wound and a battlefield commission.

Spahn, who returned to the Braves soon after his discharge in 1946, would go 21-10 in 1947, the first of 13 seasons in which Spahn, famous for his fluid, high-kicking pitching motion, won at least 20 games, a major league record for a left-handed pitcher.

In addition to his fastball, Spahn also developed a number of off-speed pitches, all thrown with the same windup. “A pitcher needs two pitches – one they’re looking for and one to cross them up,” Spahn was fond of saying.

With the Braves franchise move to Milwaukee prior to the 1953 season, Spahn continued his excellence and the team soon responded by winning pennants in 1957 and 1958. Playing the Yankees in both World Series, Spahn helped Milwaukee capture the 1957 championship, the same year he won his lone Cy Young Award.

As Spahn, who often said, “Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing,” grew older, his pitching seemed to improve. He won at least 20 games every year from 1956 to 1961, led the league in complete games every year from 1957 to 1963, and in 1963, at age 42, won 23, lost only seven, and compiled a 2.60 earned run average.

In maybe his most memorable pitching performance, Spahn faced off with the Giants’ Juan Marichal on July 3, 1963, each hurler pitching shutout ball until Willie Mays hit a home run in the bottom of the 16th inning to give San Francisco the 1-0 victory.

In 21 big league seasons (1942, 1946-65), Spahn, a 13-time All-Star, compiled a 363-245 record, started 665 games, completed 382, struck out 2,583 batters, and finished with a 3.09 ERA.

Mike Bordick Jersey

If the Baltimore Orioles are taking calls about their vacant manager’s job, former Orioles shortstop and current MASN analyst Mike Bordick will pick up the phone and start dialing.

A member of the Orioles Hall of Fame, Bordick wants to be considered for the opening so he can be a part of the rebuilding process.

“Who wouldn’t want to jump at an opportunity to manage the Orioles?” Bordick said on Glenn Clark Radio Oct. 4. “I’ve been around the organization. I’ve known it for a while. When you’re in the game, you want to contribute. From my standpoint, I’ve been able to be a part of the organization in a lot of different ways. Certainly I care about the team, I care about ownership, I care about the community. … I’m definitely going to put my name in there.”

After his playing career concluded, Bordick served two seasons as the coordinator of offensive fundamentals for the Orioles’ minor league system. When he’s not broadcasting, he continues to contribute as a special assignment instructor within the organization.

After an MLB-worst 47-115 season, the Orioles fired manager Buck Showalter and executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette Oct. 3. It was a disastrous season that featured a major selling spree at the trade deadline that sent away star shortstop Manny Machado, among others.

Showalter served as manager since July 2010, while Duquette was hired in November 2011.

Bordick watched the Orioles enjoy incredible moments under Showalter and Duquette, a combination that ended Baltimore’s 14-year streak of losing baseball in 2012. Baltimore went to the postseason three times under the duo, including the season after Duquette was hired.

The Orioles made it to the American League Division Series in 2012, the team’s first postseason appearance since 1997. They made it to the American League Championship Series in 2014 and lost in the wild-card game in 2016.

Bordick has now seen the team plummet back down, as it devotes the future to wiping the slate clean.

“It’s going to be a great time to watch this thing rebuild,” Bordick said. “I mean, how many organizations can say, ‘OK, we’re doing it.’ They’re going to make a commitment to this and it would be fun to be a part of something like that.”

During his playing career with four different teams, Bordick learned the importance of communication from all levels of an organization. The most successful ones, he said, had cohesiveness from top to bottom.

Bordick’s name has already begun to surface in conversations about potential candidates for the job. MLB insider Jon Heyman wrote Bordick and Bill Ripken, a former Orioles infielder and current MLB Network analyst, are early contenders to be the next Orioles manager.

It doesn’t hurt Bordick that he already has an established relationship with Orioles vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson. The two played together for Baltimore from 1997-2001.

While they don’t communicate regularly, there is an existing connection between the two former players that could foster a better opportunity at getting the job.

“We’re friends, but I don’t call him all the time,” Bordick said. “I just think whoever is in place … the most important thing is communication within the organization. In knowing somebody, I think that obviously helps.”

[Fernando Tatis Jr. is] most likely done for the remainder of the season. It’s been really tough for him over the last couple of days to kind of swallow this. For us, it’s a tough blow. For him, we’re going to take care of him.”

That line from San Diego Padres manager Andy Green was met by howls of anguish from the assembled baseball internet. Fernando Tatis Jr. had been a revelation, a dynamic defensive shortstop mashed into a power/speed hitting package that might even impress Ronald Acuña Jr.. Losing him for the rest of the year makes the season a little less bearable, and robs us of what was shaping up to be a fascinating NL Rookie of the Year race against Mets slugger Pete Alonso. Why can’t we have nice things?

But what baseball taketh away it first had to give, and while Tatis Jr.’s absence from our lives is a minor tragedy, it’s worth remembering that it’s incredible we the Tatis Jr. that we did. His was a season to celebrate, not to mourn. So let’s celebrate it.

Fernando Tatis Jr. did this:

A team finding itself with a 20-year-old who also happens to be a plus defensive shortstop might be happy for them to hit like a utility infielder. Tatis Jr. hit like an MVP candidate, going .317/.379/.590 in a little more than half a season, while also terrorizing teams on the bases. Watch that last video again. He tags and scores on a sacrifice fly that never left the infield, and he did it from second base. There’s a sort of brilliant recklessness to his game which, when combined with his profound athletic talent, makes him one of the most watchable players in the game.

With respect to Alonso, a very fine player in his own right, there’s only so much aesthetic joy you can derive from a right-handed slugging first basemen. (I think Jeff Bagwell and Frank Thomas probably stole all of their future swagger and kept it for themselves. Blame the ‘90s.) Tatis Jr., meanwhile, thrilled, at the plate, on the bases and at shortstop. Injuries took and are taking a big bite out of his season, but he’s expected to be back and healthy for 2020. Assuming that’s true, leaning on “why can’t be have nice things” here seems misguided. In Tatis Jr., baseball has given us a very nice thing, and we’ll be enjoying him for a long time yet.

David Newhan Jersey

David Newhan was one of more than a dozen future major-leaguers who helped the Mobile BayBears to the 1998 Southern League championship, the first of four in franchise history.

Twenty-one years later, he finds himself shepherding a group of potential future big-leaguers through the club’s final season. On Thursday, the BayBears open their “Farewell Season” in Mobile before moving to Madison and becoming the Rocket City Trash Pandas in 2020, and the 45-year-old Newhan is entering his first (and last) year as the manager of the Los Angeles Angels’ Double-A affiliate.

“It’s exciting to be back,” Newhan said Tuesday. “There’s familiarity here. We got great support. Hopefully, the fans will be out this year as well, with it being the ‘Farewell Season.’ You get one last look at the BayBears.

“It’s nice coming back, and obviously there’s a lot of good memories.”

Newhan batted .261 with 12 home runs in 121 games in 1998 as the starting second baseman for Mobile, which was then a San Diego Padres farm club. He was in the big leagues with the Padres the following June, and played 10 seasons total with five different MLB clubs.

That 1998 BayBears team included a number of other future MLB regulars, including catcher Ben Davis, pitcher Rodrigo Lopez and future All-Star outfielder Gary Matthews Jr. Mobile won 86 regular-season games on the way to the Southern League title that season, which Newhan has challenged his club to match in 2019.

“We had a great time,” Newhan said. “It was a great team. The one thing I would like to grasp from that team and learn from it is the camaraderie we had, the chemistry. That’s a big thing. … I think the culture of this (Angels) organization has already been set the last couple of years, and I think you’re going to see that from this team this year.”

Newhan previously managed in the Oakland Athletics’ organization, and also spent two seasons at the big-league level as assistant hitting coach with the Detroit Tigers. He joined the Angels as minor-league infield coordinator in 2018.

With former BayBears manager Lou Marson having moved up to Triple-A Salt Lake, Newhan takes over in the dugout at the Double-A level this season. Second baseman Jahmai Jones said he’s learned plenty from Newhan in the short time they’ve been working together.

“He’s got an unbelievable amount of knowledge,” Jones said. “The guy knows so much about the game, so much about what it takes to get there (the major leagues) and what it takes to stay there. The guy had such a good career hitting, playing the field — he could really do both. To have that in a manager is something I’m looking forward to.”

The BayBears’ 2019 Opening Day roster includes six players ranked in the Top 30 in the Angels’ system by MLB Pipeline: outfielder Brandon Marsh (the club’s No. 3 prospect), Jones (4), catcher Jack Kruger (24) and pitchers Patrick Sandoval (12), Jesus Castillo (23) and Jeremy Beasley (25). Outfielder Jo Adell, the Angels’ top prospect and a Top 15 overall prospect in baseball, finished the 2018 season with Mobile but is currently sidelined by ankle and hamstring injuries that will keep him out until mid-May.

Jones, a second-round pick out of a Georgia high school in 2015, is rated on several preseason Top 100 prospect lists. A former outfielder who converted to the infield last season, he spent much of the second half of the 2018 season in Mobile.

“I love Mobile, it’s been great for me being so close to home,” Jones said. “… It gets me really excited to be a part of this team. From top to bottom, we have a lot of really good talent and I think we’re going to have a really good team this year. We all really mesh well with each other and you can see that in the locker room.”

The BayBears open the 2019 season at home on Thursday, hosting Pensacola in the opener of a five-game series. First pitch at Hank Aaron Stadium is set for 6:30 p.m.

Butch Huskey Jersey

If I were to ask you if you knew who Robert Leon Huskey was, you would most likely respond by asking me if he was related to Butch, a former outfielder who played for the Mets, and one of the last men to wear the number 42 in a Mets’ uniform. The answer to your question would be no, because Robert Leon Huskey and Butch Huskey are one in the same, and this post is a chance to turn back time and take a look at one of the last guys to grace the number made famous by the legendary Jackie Robinson.

Huskey was with the Mets from 1993-1998, and he was a decent player who didn’t really stand out too much. Huskey had some power, and he could really drive a ball if he got a hold of it. His defense is reminiscent of Daniel Murphy in the outfield, meaning it was not very good. Huskey was more of a guy who was built for the DH role that the National League never had.

The flagship season for Huskey came in 1997, when the Mets decided to let him loose as their everyday left fielder. Huskey drilled 24 homers and drove in 81 runs, while hitting .287. In today’s game, those are numbers that would make for a quality outfielder on any team. So what happened? The answer is pretty simple. 1998 happened.

Huskey was hampered by some lingering injuries that curbed how much he could produce for the Mets, and their string of patience for Huskey was very short. After hitting .252 with 13 homers and 59 RBI, the Butch Huskey era in New York was over in a flash. After him, only Mo Vaughn ever wore number 42 with the Mets, since every team around baseball decided to honor it in honor of the great Jackie Robinson.

If nothing else, Huskey will be the answer of a trivia question for many years to come.

Kevin Mitchell is a graduate of the Genetics Department, Trinity College Dublin (B.A., Mod. 1991) and received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley (1997), where he studied nervous system development with Prof. Corey Goodman. He did postdoctoral research with Prof. Marc Tessier-Lavigne at Stanford University, using molecular genetics to study neural development in the mouse. Since 2002 he has been on the faculty at Trinity College Dublin as a Science Foundation Ireland Investigator and now as Associate Professor in Genetics and Neuroscience. He was an EMBO Young Investigator and was elected to Fellowship of Trinity College in 2009.

He is Associate Director of Undergraduate Science Education at Trinity College Dublin and is currently leading a re-imagining of the TCD science courses. This aims to rationalise and modernise the curriculum, introduce greater flexibility and breadth while maintaining a strong programmatic focus, and facilitate effective innovation in delivery and assessment methods.

His research interests are in understanding the genetic program specifying the wiring of the brain and its relevance to variation in human faculties, especially to psychiatric and neurological disease. He is particularly interested in schizophrenia, autism and synaesthesia. His group has discovered numerous genes involved in specifying neuronal connectivity in the developing brain and shown that mutations in such genes in mice can lead to neurological and behavioural symptoms, modelling aspects of epilepsy, psychosis and ADHD. His cross-disciplinary work on synaesthesia has helped shape the understanding of the genetic, developmental and neural basis of this unique perceptual condition. He is also a leading scholar in the genetics of neurodevelopmental disorders, having made numerous theoretical contributions and recently edited a book on the subject.

The over-arching goal of his work is to help develop and promote a coherent conceptual framework in which to integrate findings from diverse fields, particularly genetics, developmental biology and neuroscience. This strategy is manifested in his cross-disciplinary experimental research and scholarship, as described above, but also in his teaching, conference organising, blogging, editing and other writing.

He has developed multiple courses in the emerging, integrative field of Neurogenetics, delivered to undergraduates in both Genetics and Neuroscience at TCD.

He is the lead organiser of the inter-disciplinary and international Wiring the Brain conference, held in 2009 and 2011 in Ireland and from 2013 onwards, every two years, as an on-going series at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York.

He is an active communicator on Twitter (@WiringtheBrain) and writes a popular blog on the intersection of genetics, development, neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry (http://www.wiringthebrain.com). He also regularly gives public lectures and media interviews on diverse topics, with the goal of promoting public understanding of neuroscience and genetics.

He is currently working on a book entitled “Born that Way; how the wiring of our brains makes us all unique”, which will be published by Princeton University Press (contracted for delivery in June 2017). It will provide an integrative conceptual framework in which to consider the origins of variation in human faculties, through a novel synthesis of findings from behavioural genetics, developmental neurobiology, neuroscience and psychology.

Jose Reyes Jersey

Jose Reyes isn’t playing baseball right now. But he hopes he isn’t done with baseball, even if it looks as if baseball may be done with him.

The former Mets shortstop is a 35-year-old free agent coming off a 2018 season with the Mets during which he hit .189. He also has a 2016 suspension for violating baseball’s domestic violence policy on his record, which even Reyes admits could scare some teams off.

On the plus side of his resume, Reyes has 2,138 career hits, can play multiple positions and is thought of as a positive locker-room presence. The Mets, in particular, credit Reyes for mentoring shortstop Amed Rosario during the youngster’s indoctrination into the big leagues.

Reyes, in a telephone interview with Newsday on Thursday, said he still works out regularly at Professional Athletic Performance Center in Garden City and is ready if the phone rings.

“I still do everything – baseball activities,” Reyes said. “I’m working out and doing my running, fielding, hitting, everything, so I’m ready. If somebody calls right now, I’m ready to go.”

And if nobody calls? Is Reyes ready for his 16-year big-league career to be over?

“I don’t get to that point yet, to think about that,” he said. “[But] it’s going through my mind because it’s going to be tough if I don’t play this year. Like somebody’s going to sign me next year if I don’t play for a year? I understand. I know what I’ve got in my head right now. After [16] years in the big leagues, that’s a long career, you know? I can’t complain.”

If Reyes’ career doesn’t continue, he will finish with a .283 batting average, 131 triples, 145 home runs and 517 stolen bases. He was a four-time All-Star (all with the Mets) and earned more than $140 million.

He is the Mets’ all-time leader in triples and stolen bases and is second to David Wright in at-bats (5,437) and hits (1,534), among other spots on the franchise leaderboard. His final appearance in a Mets uniform came last Sept. 30, one day after they played side-by-side in Wright’s memorable farewell game.

“That’s my second family,” Reyes said of the Mets.

So much so that Reyes said he still watches their games and, just this Wednesday, picked up something on TV that Rosario is doing wrong defensively that is contributing to a streak in which the shortstop has made seven errors in a six-game span.

“I was about to call him,” Reyes said. “At some point, I’m going to reach out to him and tell him something I saw. He’ll be fine, though.”

Reyes’ longtime agent, Chris Leible, said he hasn’t given up hope of getting Reyes a job this season.

“If someone calls, he’s going to be on the first plane,” Leible said. “I think there’s a chance. We’ve just got to find the right opportunity. He’s gotten close a few times. It hasn’t happened yet. My selling point when I’m talking to teams is there’s really no risk on their part. Just bring him in, give him a chance and see what he can do. I know his play will speak for itself.”

Reyes said he isn’t considering signing with an independent league team such as the nearby Long Island Ducks, who are managed by former Met Wally Backman and have former Mets Kirk Nieuwenheis and Matt den Dekker on the roster for the season that begins Friday.

“That’s not in my mind right now,” Reyes said, laughing. “No.”

For now, Reyes is pursuing another longtime passion – music. He has a song and video out and recently played as part of a concert at Newark’s Prudential Center.

“I have to have something when I retire, you know?” Reyes said.

But he’s not retired.

“Not yet,” Reyes said. “Not yet.”

Jonathon Niese Jersey

The Mariners have signed left-hander Jonathon Niese to a minor league contract, per Long Island Ducks general manager Michael Pfaff (Twitter link). Niese had been set to open the season with the Ducks in the Atlantic League, but the Mariners purchased his contractual rights. He’ll report to Triple-A Tacoma.

Niese, 32, didn’t pitch in either 2017 or 2018 due in part to injuries. He went to Spring Training with the Yankees in ’17 and the Rangers in ’18 but didn’t pitch for an affiliate of either club during the regular season. His 2018 stint with the Rangers was slowed due to a subscapularis strain that cropped up in Spring Training.

The last big league appearance for Niese came back in a 2016 season that saw the southpaw struggle to a 5.50 ERA with 6.5 K/9, 3.5 BB/9 and a 51.1 percent ground-ball rate in 121 innings between the Pirates and the Mets. Prior to that ugly year, Niese enjoyed a solid six-year run as a mainstay in the Mets’ rotation, pitching in 174 games (169 starts) and compiling a 3.86 ERA with 7.0 K/9 against 2.7 BB/9 over the life of 1028 2/3 innings.

Rotation depth in the upper minors has been an issue for the Mariners, who have also signed righties Tyler Cloyd and Christian Bergman to minor league contracts in the past 10 days. Niese will slot in alongside that duo, fellow veteran Tommy Milone and top prospect Justus Sheffield as part the Mariners’ set of starters in Tacoma for the time being.

In other roster moves, the Phillies activated Jay Bruce from the 10-day injured list and called up left-hander Cole Irvin from Triple-A. The club also selected the contracts of infielder Phil Gosselin, righty Nick Vincent, and catcher Deivy Grullon from Triple-A. This will mark the 23-year-old Grullon’s first taste of MLB action, after a seven-year stint in Philadelphia’s minor league system that includes an impressive .283/.354/.496 slash line over 457 Triple-A plate appearances this season.

The Phillies have designated right-handed pitcher Drew Anderson for assignment, according to an official team announcement. He’ll be dropped from the team’s 40-man roster, along with Adam Morgan and Jerad Eickhoff, who were transferred to the 60-day injured list.

The 25-year-old Anderson has only managed to get into two games for the Phillies this year, tossing six innings in his third big-league season. It hasn’t been a promising showing for Anderson, who surrendered five runs in those six innings, walking as many batters as he struck out. Unfortunately, those numbers represented a continuation of his struggles in his first two trials in Philadelphia. For his career, Anderson is sporting an unsightly 7.71 ERA over 21 innings of work.

What’s more, the minor-league numbers for Anderson haven’t been much more encouraging. While he’s excelled at Double-A, it seems that Triple-A has represented a significant barrier; across three seasons at the level, Anderson owns a 4.34 ERA while striking out only 7.4 batters per nine innings. If he clears waivers, he could accept an outright assignment and remain within the Philly organization — if he isn’t released. Otherwise, another team could take a chance on him and hope to turn him into a viable reliever.
