Move Over Ryan Howard – Number One Pick This Year Will Be Mark Teixeira

Mark Teixiera’s signing with the New York Yankees was a coup for Brian Cashman. Mark Teixeira is one of the most complete 1st basemen in baseball. Teixeira will be 29 years of age this year and in the ascent of his most productive years. The number one pick in most leagues over the past few years has been Ryan Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies or Alex Rodriquez of the the New York Yankees. If I get the number one pick this year it will be Mark Teixeira of the New York Yankees. Why? The last 54 games he played with the LA Angeles were very impressive. If the 54 games he played with the Los Angeles Angels are any indication of what 2009 will be like, Teixeira should be the deciding factor in whether the Yankees make it back into the playoffs in 2009.

Let us take a look at those final 54 games that Mark Teixeira played with the Angels in 2009 . If he had of played all 162 games with the Angels last year, Teixeira would have very likely had 42 Home runs, 172 Runs Batted In and he more than likely would have had a .358 Batting Average with 207 Hits and he would have only struck out 92 times, 107 less than Ryan Howard. Ryan Howard last year had 48 Home Runs, 146 Runs Batted In, and .251 Batting Average medicrocity to the Los Angeles Angels that had an excellent offense and had an excellent chance to go somewhere in the playoffs, so he was hyped. It was also a contract year, so that also might have been a factor in his play, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt.

The move for Teixeira to the Angels last year one was a positive one. He had gone from a team – Atlanta Braves that are now languishing in the cesspool of medicrocity to the Los Angeles Angels that had an excellent offense and had an excellent chance to go somewhere in the playoffs, so he was hyped. It was also a contract year, so that also might have been a factor in his play, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt.

For leagues that also take into consideration defense, Mark Teixeira will be a hands down favorite. In 2008 he had a fielding percentage of .997. Teixeira committed only 5 errors last year, and he was third in turning double plays with 130. So, if fielding stats are taken into consideration in your fantasy league, Mark Teixeira should be your number one pick. The New York Yankees have one of the best infields in baseball. He has won the Gold Glove twice.

Playing for the New York Yankees in 2009 should help pad Mark Teixeira’s offensive numbers. He will hit anywhere from 3rd position to 5th position in the batting order. Mark Teixeira should be able to wait on his pitches, and he is a very selective hitter with only 92 strikeouts last year. For leagues that subract strikeouts this should be plus factor. Power hitters are known for their strikeouts.

History of Official NFL Jerseys

In 1920, professional baseball was given top priority throughout America in comparison to professional football. But in the recent years due to the increase popularity of NFL sports as being observed and viewed by millions of fans has helped professional football sport to conceal professional baseball sport in every possible aspect. NFL has become the most fascinating and favorite game for any NFL fan. But the Super Bowl has huge spectators in comparison to the World Series annually.

National Football League also known as NFL has created a legacy of its own over the past 90 years. NFL sport helps in building countless and strong relations between friends who play football in their parking lots or between a father and a son who have a common interest in playing the same game i.e. football. Due to all these reasons NFL will continue to be the most loved and admired sport by it fans across America not only in the present year but also for the years to come.

NFL sport fans show their true love and support for their favorite NFL team or player by wearing a NFL jersey. Hence the demand of NFL jerseys has been increasing in the market. NFL fans spend millions every year on the purchase of football collectibles and NFL jerseys. Therefore, manufacturing companies invest a lot on the production of NFL jerseys and accessories as most of the marketing potential is linked with NFL sport. Today football players are no longer required to wear padded leather helmets to protect themselves for getting injured because advanced technology over these 90 years has invented new methods and techniques that can shield and protect professional football players from any wound and injuries. Several transformations have been made to these NFL uniforms that make these jerseys look stylish and fashionable. You may consider it superstitious even today when football fans wear old-fashioned NFL jerseys in order to boost the confidence and cheer their favorite team players when they need it the most. Thus by wearing either an old style NFL jersey or a modern NFL jersey these uniforms both help in showing your true harmony towards your favorite team players.

A NFL team named Denver Broncos in 1986 had a unique dress code i.e. orange crush uniforms that were made of bright orange and blue color schemes. These uniforms were worn by professional players through numerous championship tournaments. Finally in 1996, this NFL team altered some changes to the color of their uniforms by designing their uniforms having average choice of colors. Hence their NFL jerseys were made up of dark blue and plain orange accents. Thus Denver Broncos gained popularity and endorsement from all the football fans worldwide when they won two Super Bowls nonstop. In the football stadium on special occasions you will also hear the whisper and see fans gossiping about old number 7 on the field when Broncos are dressed in their classy orange football jerseys.

The Cleveland Browns began their first professional football career in 1946 by wearing white leather helmets. Ten years later in 1956, they changed the color of their helmet to dark orange having white stripes on it. Currently these dark orange helmets are being used by professional football players. Although the tradition has been a strong foundation for the Cleveland Browns they have been eluded by the Super Bowl during these years. Hence the uniforms of Browns have not been modernized.

Therefore you should always support and cheer your favorite NFL team players by wearing official NFL jerseys despite of their past history. The NFL jerseys should also have the name and number of your favorite football player printed on it. Further you are allowed to wear either a current NFL jersey or even a classic old fashioned jersey. This not only gives joy and satisfaction to your grandparents but also makes them feel proud. Apart from these, it is also become an American ritual that entire football fans wear jerseys of their favorite team’s colors on Sunday afternoon for few hours to show their appreciation and unity for their favorite player.

Dog Training Tips For Training Your Dog Without Punishment – Redirection

The Art of Redirection – An efficient cure for the most common doggie don’ts.

Working as a dog trainer in San Diego, the most common question that I am asked is usually “How do I get my dog to stop ______?” Many of the biggest challenges owners face with their “Best Friend” revolve around annoying behaviors that their dogs develop. Jumping up, leash pulling, barking, nipping and not coming when called are the some of the most common problems owners face. Feel free to substitute your dog’s own annoying behavior in the list above…We’ll soon be on the way to solving these challenging issues.

My most frequent response to a general question regarding the aforementioned behaviors is another question: “What is it that you want your dog to do instead?” Before we try to stop a challenging behavior in a certain scenario, we must first ask ourselves what it is the ideal behavior that our dog can perform. All too often we see a person’s first reaction to an unwanted behavior is to react by attempting to curb, halt, or punish the dog for “misbehaving.” STOP RIGHT THERE! Before we start ‘whispering’ (or yelling) corrections with a “cht-cht”, “aaahhtt”, or “no”, we need to analyze what’s going on. Your dog is simply acting out a role in a well rehearsed behavioral model, and one that we can take control of without the need to punish.

An example of a common “problem” we treat starts as an owner and dog are approached by a guest (or stranger), many times accompanied by another dog. The owner typically prepares the dog for the upcoming interaction by tightening up on a leash, signaling to the dog that it is now time to begin the typical drill. (Feel free to insert “halter”, “harness”, “leader”, “choker”, “chain” or other correction device in place of the word leash above.) At this point the dog now understands that the owner is appropriately prepared for the antics and may begin running, jumping, barking, pulling, growling… For most owners facing this situation, the pulling increases, yelling might ensue, and the dog and owner eventually get what they have been trained to expect from the situation. At this point we have failed to “correct” the “problem”, and are disappointed that it has all happened again…Maybe next time the owner will yell “NO” a little louder! Or, let’s take control appropriately and add a little redirection, not a correction.

Redirection involves taking the dog’s attention from a distracting stimulus and getting the dog to focus on the owner, who may then ask the dog to perform the appropriate behavior. In the example above, and in many other scenarios, getting the dog’s attention, and having it “sit” works well. Now instead of the antics, we have a dog sitting. Reinforce this behavior with tons of praise and attention, you are doing great! The dog may still feel challenged, wanting to get up, regressing to the same-old-same-old. DO NOT CORRECT, KEEP REDIRECTING! Ask the dog to sit again, and again reinforce the great behavior. Don’t get upset, don’t yell, and don’t punish…Keep asking for the most desirable behavior. Of course this may seem too easy, that’s because it takes patience and practice. The amount of attention an owner can capture from the dog is usually limited by the level of distraction, so start your practice in a neutral environment and build up more distraction. Once you have it mastered, you will never have to say no again…And your dog will love you for it!
