Justin Verlander ‘100%’ believes MLB is juicing balls for more home runs

first_imgIf MLB offenses continue it’s current streak into the second half of the season, players could hit a total of 6,668 homers, which would break the previous mark of 6,105.Verlander said this is intentional.”Yes. 100%. They’ve been using juiced balls in the Home Run Derby forever,” he said. “They know how to do it. It’s not coincidence. I find it really hard to believe that Major League Baseball owns Rawlings and just coincidentally the balls become juiced.”Cubs starter Jon Lester, a 14-year veteran, previously said something is up with the balls, as well. “The numbers are through the roof,” Lester told USA Today in May. “I think there’s something up with the ball. It seems almost like the ones they use in the Home Run Derby with the way it flies.”Lester ranks 42nd in home runs allowed (15) and he admitted it’s what brings people to the sport. “It’s a f—ing joke,” Verlander said, via ESPN. “Major League Baseball’s turning this game into a joke. They own Rawlings, and you’ve got (commissioner Rob) Manfred up here saying it might be the way they center the pill. They own the f—ing company. If any other $40 billion company bought out a $400 million company and the product changed dramatically, it’s not a guess as to what happened. We all know what happened. Manfred — the first time he came in, what’d he say? He said we want more offense. All of a sudden he comes in, the balls are juiced? It’s not coincidence. We’re not idiots.”Verlander has allowed a major league-high 26 home runs in 2019. But it’s not just the 2011 Cy Young award winner. A total of 11 pitchers have allowed 20 or more homers and players are on pace to break the 2017 record by a whopping 600-plus home runs. Related News Justin Verlander has an answer for this home run-heavy season.There have been 3,691 home runs already hit by the All-Star break to mark a historically high rate of 1.37 per game. This led the Astros pitcher to say that the league is “100%” juicing balls for more offense.  MLB All-Star 2019: Home Run Derby matchups rankedcenter_img Christian Yelich breaks boat window during Home Run Derby practice, someone calls police (really) “That’s the thing baseball people want to see, all of these homers, and how far they went,” Lester said. “It gives the millennials something to look at and talk about with all of the stats, spin rates, launch angles and all of that stuff.”This, however, is a cause for concern in Verlander’s eyes.”I don’t know if it’s bad or good for the game,” he said. “That’s for them to decide. I don’t think it’s great — that the true outcomes of strikeouts, homers and walks is best for the game. That’s for somebody else to decide. I talk about time a lot — how do you stack up in history? If you’re going to change something so dramatically, I think you need to make people aware.”last_img read more

Competing in the Race of Life (Part III): Perseverance

first_imgIn this third article of the series on Life as a race and how we are all competing in it the concentration is on the perseverance required for successfully participating in it. Perseverance or endurance is a necessity for accomplishing most important tasks and for succeeding in life in general. It is therefore crucial that every person develops and maintains the capacity to persevere under various circumstances and situations of life. How? We examine in brief below. The second article of the series on the key requirements for competing and winning in the race of life observed the following points:The number one requirement for success and fulfillment in any endeavor of life is faith coupled with commitment. Faith is confidence and hope that something will be done in spite of outward contrary signs. John Macquarie argues that we all exercise faith of some sort in all sorts of ways. The scientist has faith in his scientific work. The humanist has faith in himself. When you sign a contract, deposit money with a bank, marry or board a plane or ride a car you are certainly acting in faith. The Bible defines faith as “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (RSV). Faith then is the confident inner assurance that what one desires or is working towards will be accomplished. This confidence can be placed in oneself (one’s intelligence, knowledge, experience, connections, and possessions), family, an ideology, an institution, or in another person.From the Christian perspective faith is in God Almighty who is the greatest and excellent of all beings. He has perfectly manifested himself in Jesus Christ who alone brings God down to our human level, within the reach of every person. But trust in God must issue into commitment and practical actions and deeds. Faith energizes and empowers for true work or service. Christian faith is cooperation with God. This means living and working hard in dependence upon God.Commitment takes the form of discipline to think and do what is required. In the case of the ancient Greek Olympics the main requirements were that one had to train for ten unbroken years and resolve not to resort to tricks as means of winning. Running in the race of life requires integrity (being honest and possessing strong moral principles at all times, wholeness, steadfastness in adhering to high principles or professional standards). Competing in the race of life with the view of winning requires faith, hard work, honesty, and doing whatever it takes (within moral conscience) to achieve and fulfill what God desires.The requirements of faith, commitment, hard work, and integrity must be undergirded by the virtue of perseverance or endurance. What then is perseverance or endurance? The Encarta Dictionaries define perseverance as “steadfast and continued action or belief, usually over a long period and especially despite difficulties or setbacks”. The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary defines perseverance like this: “the quality of continuing to try to achieve a particular aim despite difficulties”. In other words perseverance is the ability to hold on, keep on trying until success is won or the end of something. It is the quality not to give up against the odds and seeming setbacks.The writer of the book of Hebrews in the New Testament encourages Christians thus: “Let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith” (12:1-2). Serious training for any race is significant but is useless without endurance before difficulties. It is very easy to start many things in life but quite difficult to see them to the end. Staying power is required, and is what many lack and only a few possess. It is one thing to start and quite another to finish or persevere to the end. Often in life the difference between those who succeed and those who fail is perseverance; those who have it and those who lack it.Every human being will meet up with challenges and difficulties in spite of good intentions and earnest and honest efforts. There are enemies of progress within and without, far and near. There is always someone somewhere who does not want us to succeed in anything. The answer is to endure and persist until goals and objectives are achieved. To run and win in the race of life is to have plenty of perseverance or tenacity.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
