Spring Training Preview – Atlanta Braves

Atlanta, ga

The Braves have seen quite a bit of turnover in recent years, losing players like Rafael Furcal and Andruw Jones to free agency, as well as making several high-profile trades that have reshaped the franchise. Chipper Jones still remains on the team, but he is the only real holdover from the teams that won the NL East in a yearly fashion during the 90s and early part of this decade. As a result, the Braves are largely a younger team at this point, though they have made some veteran additions that could pay dividends for them this year. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what to expect from the Braves during this season.

C Brian McCann – McCann had a bit of down year in 2007, posting a .772 OPS that caused more than a few people to think that his impressive 2006 was a fluke. McCann bounced back in 2008, posting a .896 OPS that looks like it will be the norm, more than the exception. McCann has great power, and is a consistent 20 HR threat. He doesn’t strike out or walk a lot with an IsoD of .61 for his career and only 218 Ks in 1600+ AB. While this does make his plate appearances a bit shorter than you would like, it’s impossible to argue with the results, and he hasn’t shown a Jeff Francouer-type level of aggressiveness that would severely hamper his results at the plate. McCann is about as solid of a bet as you will find at catcher offensively, and his defense is beginning to catch up as well. Consider this position in safe hands for the Braves for the rest of his arbitration years, and they would be wise to lock him up after that as well.

1B Casey Kotchman – Kotchman came over from the Angels in the Mark Teixeira deal last year. While he had some trouble adjusting to the National League, posting a .647 OPS in his time with the Braves, expect him to bounce back to his normal levels around .800 during this season. He certainly is no Mark Teixeira, but still has time to display the power that made him a top prospect with the Angels in the minors. He is also a superb defensive 1B, something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Kotchman also has a trait that is characteristic of a fair number of Braves players these days in that he is aggressive in the count, walking only 36 times in 561 PAs last year. He still squares up to the ball relatively well, so the approach works for him, but it is something to keep in mind as to why he may not ever reach his full potential.

2B Kelly Johnson – Johnson is one of the most underrated 2B in the majors. If he was playing for a big-market team like Boston or New York, there would be far more written about him, as he has posted an OPS of at least .795 in each of his two years as a starter for the Braves. He is a solid contact hitter who drives the ball into gaps, and has the speed to account for his 16 triples over the past two seasons. One area of concern for Johnson is his relatively high strikeout rate, as he has topped 110 Ks in each of the last two seasons, but his ability to make hard contact with the ball when he puts a bat on it allows for him to be successful despite this flaw.

3B Chipper Jones – Jones, in his 15th year with the Braves, put up possibly his best season in the majors at age 36. Although he played in only 128 games because of injury, he still managed to post an OPS of 1.044, his third straight season above 1.000. With his subpar 2004, there was talk that Chipper might have been on the downward slope of his career, but he has managed to produce in every year since then. He is a great contact hitter from both sides of the plate, though most of his power comes as a lefty, as 17 out of his 22 HRs were from that side of the plate last season. While Jones doesn’t have the great first step that made him an elite defensive 3B in his prime or allowed him to steal 20+ bases anymore, he still is quite capable defensively. Look for him to continue to produce in 2009, though not necessarily at the level of his amazing 2008.

SS Yunel Escobar – 2008 was Escobar’s first full year as the Braves SS. He posted solid numbers across the board, with a .767 OPS in 136 games. Escobar never displayed much power in the minors, so his 10 home runs might have surprised some people last year. Expect anywhere from 5-10 HRs in a given year from him, so he was probably close to the top of his production from that standpoint. Don’t expect him to produce an OPS in the mid-800s like he did in his rookie year, as that was most likely due to an unsustainable BABIP that should cause him to fall in line with his 2008 numbers.

LF Brandon Jones – Jones entered 2008 as one of the Braves top prospects in the minors and was expected to see some time in the majors last year. After playing 41 games for the Braves, mostly towards the end of 2008, he now looks to lock down a regular lineup spot for 2009. Jones has consistently hit for average in the minors, and also displayed some power in 2007, belting 19 home runs across two different levels.

UN chief says stranded seafarers are key workers

Athens, GA

The UN Secretary General says COVID-19 travel restrictions have left hundreds of thousands of the world’s 2 million seafarers stranded at sea for months, and is calling on countries to designate them and other marine personnel as key workers.

Antonio Guterres also called on nations to ensure that crews can leave vessels and be replaced safely, according to a statement from UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

The U.N. chief said the maximum time for seafarers to spend at sea under international conventions is being ignored, with some marooned on vessels for 15 months.

Guterres said UN agencies, including the International Labour Organisation and the International Maritime Organisation, have worked with the International Chamber of Shipping and the International Transport Workers Federation to develop protocols for crew changeovers, “taking full account of public health concerns.”

US Democrats are playing with fire in their conspicuous attempts to pin the violence seen in US cities on Trump

Athens, ga

President Donald Trump could have done without another crisis during the Covid-19 pandemic, but the murder of George Floyd, an African American man, at the hands of a white policeman triggered dozens of protests across the US which burst into violence against the police, their offices and looting and rioting in more than 25 US cities.

The new crisis facing Trump is no different from previous ones his opponents took advantage of to undermine his positions and decisions, whether on the domestic or international fronts. Floyd’s murder and its repercussions cannot be separated from the ongoing battle for the presidency in November and who will win the votes of minority groups, since the votes of Blacks, Hispanics and Latinos are blocs that are likely to cohesively vote for one candidate and not the other. This is what former president Barack Obama did in the past, and the Democrats are now trying to utilise him in the Floyd campaign, as the first Black president, to direct African American votes to the Democrats’ most probable candidate, Joe Biden.

This recent crisis facing Trump raises questions about how various groups, mostly on the Left, manipulate human rights slogans, to achieve purely political goals inside and outside the US. This contradicts what these groups usually promote: democracy and the rule of law as the real guarantors to prevent peaceful protests from descending into violence and anarchy.

Floyd’s death is an unjustifiable and indefensible crime, but weaponising it for political goals must be scrutinised.

It is illogical that an incident like this, which has occurred thousands of times in the US over the past five years (according to statistics published by The Washington Post after Floyd’s murder which revealed that more than 4,000 unarmed Americans were killed by police since 2015), can generate all this violence. Perhaps there is some truth to what Trump said, that there are groups manipulating the situation, not in solidarity with Floyd but for electoral reasons.

The fact that Democrats, led by their probable candidate Biden, have not strongly condemned the events is evidence that this incident is being utilised for political goals.

The political utilisation of Floyd’s murder can be seen from various angles.

First, claims by Trump’s opponents in the Democrat camp that democracies do not witness peaceful protests descending into violence, and that despotic regimes are the only ones where such events happen. However, reactions to Floyd’s murder negate this incorrect claim since the US is a country of institutions and the rule of law, and the reaction on the street is no different than that in non-democratic countries.

This obliges us to conclude one of two things: either US democracy is merely procedural and society lacks a culture of democracy; or there are those who took advantage of democracy and the passiveness of US citizens to transform peaceful demonstrations into violence.

Both are correct. Peaceful protests in the beginning drew doubt over the rule of law and respect for due process. Then protesters were enraged when the prosecution decided to charge Floyd’s killer with manslaughter. So, where is the culture of respect for the rule of law?
At the same time, we cannot ignore the culture of resenting authority on principle due to the strong impact of anarchist groups among American youth, and their role in directing events towards violence. These groups, especially Antifa, which Trump directly accuses of instigation, claim they are a resistance movement against fascism around the world and adopt violence as a means to undermine states and establish self-governing societies.

Here, we can reference prominent German thinker Ulrich Beck, who is an inspiration to anarchist groups around the world, to explain the methods used by these groups and how they connect to recent events in the US. Beck, who died in 2015, once stated: “Defence movements for all of civil society are the lawyers, creative people and judges of values and standards. They disagree and at the same time stimulate local and overall awareness, the people’s awareness of these values, the values of truth and justice, by releasing and fuelling popular discontent and anger that overtakes public opinion due to blatant violations of these standards. For this reason, they focus on isolated cases whether relating to environmental scandals, or the painful life of torture victims that shakes the global conscience to its core.”

This is a summary of the ideology of anarchists such as Antifa which Trump promised to ban in the US. They seem to have adopted Beck’s statement to the letter by using an iterative event that seems isolated but is taken out of context, which is that there are fewer incidents of police killing unarmed people during Trump’s tenure compared to his predecessor Obama. This incident was used to fuel the protests and transform them into destructive violent acts.

The greater problem is that Trump’s Democratic opponents are only thinking about how to utilise any catastrophe that strikes US society to blame Trump, in the hope that this will help them win the White House in November. They do not ask themselves how will they act if something similar happens in the future when they are in power. What is the price the US will pay for the collusion of Democrats with anarchists, since the latter’s ideology aims to overthrow all authority, whether Trump, the Republicans or anyone else in power?
Biden’s tweets demonstrate how much Democrats underestimate the gravity of events in Minnesota: “This is not abstract: a black reporter was arrested while doing his job this morning, while the white police officer who killed George Floyd remains free. I am glad swift action was taken, but this, to me, says everything.” And: “I will not lift the President’s tweet. I will not give him that amplification. But he is calling for violence against American citizens during a moment of pain for so many.

I’m furious, and you should be too.”

These two tweets demonstrate Biden’s intention to embarrass Trump, rather than confront a danger that threatens the security and future of the US if liberals and Democrats in the US are not careful about their tactical alliances with anarchists.

Finally, now that Twitter has entered the fray against Trump, it has revealed the lie about the neutrality of social media platforms, which resulted in Trump beginning a process to legislate what ideas and opinions these platforms can publish via its members’ accounts.

Democrats may think this will serve them by using the decision to condemn Trump and accuse him of fighting freedom of publishing and expression which are inherent rights of citizens. But this could be turned against them since the opinions of intellectuals and politicians from across the spectrum, even inside the US, warn against the risk of using social media to spread rumours and launch campaigns inciting violence, and the moral assassination of opponents.
