Mitch Stetter Jersey

The Angels search for a second lefty continued yesterday, when they signed Mitch Stetter to a minor-league contract. Stetter was in the minor leagues last season for the Brewers, though does have major league experience. Stetter pitched in the major leagues from 2007-2011 for them.

Stetter will join newly acquired Brandon Sisk and possibly Nick Maronde as the second lefty in the bullpen to complement Scott Downs. The Angels had Hisanori Takahashi, however he was waived during the season. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Angels add another LOOGY in free agency or maybe in a trade scenario.

Is Travis Shaw the Brewers answer at first base?

Stetter’s last full season in the show was in 2009, when he went 4-1 with a 3.60 ERA. He only pitched a combined 10.2 innings the majors in 2010 and 2011 and was ineffective.

Stetter is the prototypical LOOGY. In his major league career, left hand hitters hit just .194 against him. He actually was walked more right hand hitters (29) then he’s struck out during his career (26). Stetter pitched in AA and AAA for the Brewers last season, going 1-1 with a 2.67 ERA. In 30 innings, he struck out 40 hitters. He also only gave up 18 hits in the minors last year.

Good bullpens are built, usually internally and on the cheap. Look at the way some of the best bullpens in baseball are built, like the San Francisco Giants. Jerry Dipoto is employing this strategy in building the Angel bullpen, and look for that to continue as the off-season progresses.

The playoff-contending Giants and Chicago have a regularly scheduled game set to begin three hours later.

Scott Sanderson Jersey

VICKSBURG, MI — A male juvenile has been arrested in connection with an overnight online threat that prompted officials to close Vicksburg Community Schools Nov. 19.

The arrest is the fourth that has been made in connection with a number of school threats that have taken place in Kalamazoo County over the last two weeks.

Vicksburg Village Police Chief Scott Sanderson said he does not believe any additional suspects are involved in the incident, nor does he believe there is any immediate threat to Vicksburg Community Schools.

He refused to name the age of the suspect as the investigation is ongoing.

When asked if he deemed this incident a “credible threat,” Sanderson said that he always looks at any threat as credible until it is proven otherwise. He said he does not believe this threat was credible, but will leave that determination to the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor’s Office once charges are submitted.

If a school threat is deemed credible, in which evidence suggests there was intent to carry out the threat or an overt action had been made to do so, a suspect would face up to 10 years in prison on a felony charge.

Threats that are not considered to be credible are charged as misdemeanor crimes that carry a maximum penalty of one year in prison.

Each of the three girls arrested in the past week, ranging in age from 14 to 17, are facing one count of making an intentional threat to commit an act of violence against a school, school employees or students. All three threats were deemed not credible.

According to the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor’s Office, one of the three individuals is being charged as an adult and the other two are being tried in the juvenile court system.

Sanderson said he was not looking at this incident as “a copycat thing” in comparing it to recent threats, which had been deemed as such by officials.

“It’s just a different set of circumstances,” he said.

Sanderson said he had no further comments on the matter until official charges were brought forth. He expects that to occur by Nov. 20.

SOME of the region’s best bowlers battled it out during the latest round of the state, seniors and president’s reserve doubles competitions.

Kootingal, Tamworth City and Manilla Bowling Clubs hosted the latest round of competition, which acted as a qualifier for the Zone 3 pairs championships in July.

The hometown duo of George Hemming and Zack Curtis moved through to the next stage of the Zone’s state pairs competition alongside Narrabri’s Sam Prior, while Quirindi’s Scotty Ryman and Jason Heaver took out the president’s reserve competition in Manilla.

The Rule 5 Draft, which occurs on Dec. 12, the final day of the Winter Meetings in San Diego, may be a little more important this season because active rosters are expected to expand to 26 players in 2020. For the most part, high school draftees from 2015 and college draftees from 2016 are the latest group eligible to be selected in the Rule 5 Draft.

The Reds picked infielder Connor Joe in the Rule 5 Draft last season, but they traded him to the San Francisco Giants in March. Joe was eventually returned to his original organization, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Rule 5 picks must remain on the active roster all season.

A couple of the Reds’ minor leaguers who remain unprotected are shortstop Alfredo Rodriguez and outfielder T.J. Friedl. Rodriguez, a glove-first player, signed for a $7 million bonus out of Cuba in 2016 and it forced the Reds to sit in the proverbial penalty box for the next two international signing periods for exceeding their international signing bonus limit. Friedl missed the final two months of the season with an ankle injury, but he had a .347 on-base percentage in 65 games. Friedl has experience at all three outfield positions.

Reliever Jimmy Herget was the only addition to the 40-man roster last offseason before the Rule 5 Draft deadline and he made his MLB debut in July.

Joe Palmisano Jersey

Caley has earned his paycheck lately, adjusting on the fly after Rob Gronkowski (69 catches, 1,084 yards, eight TDs in 14 regular-season games) left the AFC title game with a concussion. “Gronk” is expected to face the Eagles on Sunday.

Caley is expecting company. His parents, Rick and Patti, and his oldest sister Alex are coming in from Canton for the game.

“All my family is back in Canton, on my mom’s side and on my dad’s side,” Caley said.

He smiles about how he broke into football. He was a ball boy when Malone was starting a football program under head coach Joe Palmisano. He has heard Palmisano is a man about town now, a radio personality with WHBC.

“He probably wouldn’t remember me,” Caley said.

Caley, who turned 35 last week, grew up not far from the House of Milk and Honey in Plain Township.

“I was a Browns fan,” he said. “Bill Belichick was the head coach. I would watch the games with my family. We followed the Browns until the team moved.”

He was a football player at St. Thomas Aquinas when the team came back. He had spent his early school days at a neighborhood Catholic school, Our Lady of Peace, and going to Aquinas rather than GlenOak was a natural choice.

“I weighed 135 pounds when I was a senior at St. Thomas,” he said, “and that might be exaggerating.”

A conversation with Caley reveals him as fellow not overwhelmed by the moment and confident he can do his part.

Belichick might be the world’s most famous football coach, but Caley has worked for and with numerous coaches he respects.

“I’ve been fortunate to work with really good people and good mentors,” he said. “I’m very, very fortunate to work here every day with Bill Belichick and with Josh. I don’t take anything for granted. I’m thankful every single day.”

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph will not pursue legal charges or take additional action toward Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett following Thursday night’s on-field altercation, a source told ESPN on Friday.

It is now considered an NFL matter exclusively.

The NFL handed down the longest ban for a single on-field incident in league history Friday afternoon when it indefinitely suspended Garrett without pay for his role in the late-game melee. Garrett swung and struck Rudolph on the head with the quarterback’s own helmet. Rudolph, who appeared to attempt to dislodge Garrett’s helmet after the defensive end’s late hit, will be fined for his role in the altercation, a source told ESPN.

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey was suspended three games without pay for fighting, including punching and kicking Garrett, and Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi was suspended one game. Suspended players have three business days to appeal their punishment.

The teams were also fined $250,000 each, and the NFL left the door open for “additional discipline” of other players under the league’s standard accountability process, including those who left the bench and ran onto the field to enter the fight area.
