The Metamorphosis of the David Price Bobblehead

 

During the last two Tampa Bay Rays home stands, I have been amazed and laughing daily at some of the stages of image metamorphosis that has transpired to Rays leftie starter David Price’s cartoon image. I decided on this first day of the 2010 All-Star break to go back in time a bit and try and pull out the photos and images of the changing Price bobblehead over the past few weeks and try to construct a time line of the changes that has made this one section of Tropicana Field a “must see” before every Rays game.


I am seated not more than 35 feet from the figurine’s pristine image , so I have gotten a pretty straight shot at most of the creative handy work done on the image. But it has become a great game day adventure to try and foresee the imagination and the creative talents of Rays long reliever Andy Sonnanstine as he daily morphed the Price bobblehead promotion sticker every game.

It has been one of the true pleasures of the last two home stands to nightly come in and see what has transpired along the Rightfield wall in Section 140. I hope you enjoy the walk back into the mind of Sonnanstine, and the transforming of Price from a simple wall image, to an “All Star”. It all started with a simple gap-toothed smile upon the Price bobblehead on June 22nd, but it was only the tip of the artistic iceberg that would evolve over the next few weeks. 
 
 

The first image of the gap-toothed smile was very subtle compared with the rest of the image arsenal Sonnanstine would devise over the next few weeks. Who would have guessed that Sonnanstine had this hidden talent,but we had seen glimmers of it before with the 2009 Dale Thayer mustache move during an InterLeague game against the Florida Marlins.

On June 23rd, the Price bobblehead got his first “mature” addition as Sonnanstine gave him his first full mustache, complete with an “Errol Flynn” flair. It was the first “facial hair” modification, but it certainly would not be the last time we saw an extra bit of facial growth upon the usually clean shaven Price bobblehead. This first image of facial hair got me thinking of the “Frito Bandito” cartoon commercial image I grew up with as a child

 

Then during the Rays afternoon game on June 24th against the San Diego Padres, Sonnanstine decided that Price needed a set of eye black under each eye to help the image reflect the glare away with a fly ball coming into the Rightfield corner. On this day,the eye black was not imprinted with a inspirational or symbolic gesture, but we knew the mind of Sonnanstine was not done yet.

 

During the Friday night game on June 25th, Sonnanstine gave us all a small deviation from the plan, but a great image as Price got to have a nasal strip attached to the bridge of his image’s nose to hopefully get him a bit more air while staying plastered on the RF wall. The white tape of the strip projected great off the image and could be seen quite well all the way over in the Visitor’s dugout area.

 

 

On June 26th, Sonnanstine let Price pay homage to his hometown a bit as he again applied a bit of eyeblack to the Price image during a Fox Saturday afternoon game against the Arizona Diamondbacks complete with a nice “615” area code imprinted inwhite on each piece of eyeblack. I thought it was great of Sonnantine to include this imagery today considering some of Price’s friends and relatives would be enjopying the game that day on a regional feed from Fox.

 

 

 

The on Sunday June27th during the last day of that first Rays home stand with the Price image in Rightfield, Sonnanstine decided to give him a little “intensity” and popped on a nice little Matt Garza chin hair onto the Price image on the same day Rays kid’s were getting their Evan Longoria bobblehead. In some ways, these daily facial hair changes might give Price an idea how he might look if he every let any facial hair dominant his face.

 

So with the Rays on a road trip, the Price bobblehead was moved to the left side of the Rightfield wall access point and when the team arrived back home on July 5th, he was joined by a Matt Garza future promotional bobblehead smiling away to his right. But it was not the end of the metamorphosis of the Price image. Far from over.

 

When the Rays came home on July 5th to play a critical three game series against the Boston Red Sox, Sonnanstine got the day off right with deciding to attach a set of glasses to the Price bobblehead that evening. It definitely make the tension go down a bit in the stands as we all enjoyed Price’s new accessory. The video on the top of the blog is also a daily video transcript of the transformation of the Price bobblehead image on this day.

For some reason, I did not have a video card in my camera on July 6th, but I hope I can give an adequate description of that day’s Price addition.  Today the Price image got a set
of whited-out eyes. Not sure of the intent or the reasoning, but it was a bit wild and crazy of Sonnantine to completely white-out Price’s eyes on this day’s image change.

But I did remember my camera video card on July 7th, and it was the beginning of a small transitional period of daily facial hair changes again for the Price bobblehead. It all started with a pretty well trimmed mustache and starter-kit goatee. Actually seemed to fit Price’s face, and who knows, maybe this might be a future Price addition to his baseball persona.

 

If the rest of this week’s transformation, Sonnanstine went a bit more subtle in his next addition (July 8th) only adding some extended sideburns that came down into the Price bobblehead’s current beard and goatee and filled in a bit more at the chin region with some facial additives. Little did we know that the whole thing was going to be a time elaspe image of Price in full 1970’s glory. On the July 8th image, the beard got a bit fuller and the sideburns more visual. It was becoming apparent that Price’s bobblehead was getting his groove on now.

But Sonnanstine had also gotten wiser to my daily photos and images of him tinkering and adding to his Price artistic display. He began to make his daily changes before the Rays fans were granted entry into the seating bowl, and this was the last time I would catch him doing his daily “magic” upon the Price bobblehead image.
 
On July 9th, Price’s transition went straight into full beard mode, and we definitely got a chance to see what the leftie might look like with a full face full of facial hair. It was kind of funny how the image had materialized from a simple series of facial hair, to a full blown beard and sideburns now. What you could not see without a telephoto lens was the nice set of gold earring Sonnanstine gave Price on that Friday night’s image. I got this close up shot as I was waiting for the stage to be set up for the Vanilla Ice Concert.


 

 

But on Saturday night (July 10th), we got the biggest surprise of the week as Price had grown overnight a glowing 1970’s afro that would have made member of that decade’s Pittsburgh Pirates green with envy. It was the biggest change yet in the Price image, and we still had one more day to go before Price’s bobblehead would be presented again to Rays fans 14 and under. With this burst of new hair upon the Price image, it seemed as if there was no where else to go with the facial elements of the image.

 

 

And just as it seems we had hit the top of the facial food chain with Sonnanstine’s renditions on the Price bobblehead, it was gone. On Sunday July 11th, the Price image was again adorned with eye black for the afternoon contest, but his time Sonnanstine play homage to his Rays teammate by simply adding the words “All Star” to the eye black pieces. And with Price going to the mound on Tuesday night as the American League starting pitcher, I was a loud and proud send-off for Price to the 81st All-Star game in Anaheim,California.

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed the photos of the metamorphosis of David Price’s bobblehead over the past two Rays home stands. Sonnanstine was the winning pitcher on the Rays Sunday conclusion before the All-Star break. During his on-the-field interview Sonnanstine was asked if he was going to do the same with the Garza bobblehead image as he has done with Price’s following the Rays return to Tropicana Field after the road trip.

Sonnanstine remarked that he would have to think about it and see how many days we have in the next home stands before the Garza bobblehead was presented to the fans. Got to tell you Sonny, you will have 14 Rays home games before that August 15th date that Garza’s bobblehead will reach the Rays fans hands. Maybe we might have 14 days of Garza metamorphosis too. If that happens, I will be more than glad to let all of you see the changes.   


Jason Bartlett deserves an All-Star spot

People have always looked to New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter as the ulitimate symbol of what it takes to be a American League All-Star selection. I mean the guy has the endorsement looks, the slick glove and a energized bat that always seems to hum at, or above the .300 clip every single season. For what seems like his entire career Jeter has had his name stenciled on the All-Star ballot, and been selected for the team based mostly on “what he can do for you in a pinch.”

And that is a great quality for your shortstop aka field general to have because  consistent clutch performances earn you the big bucks and the name recognition that even part-time fans notice. So can we honestly say that maybe the Yankees famed number 2 is going to have a bit of competition this season for that coveted  All-Star spot? 

I think this year he might still make the All-Star roster, but I am hoping he is not the starting shortstop in the game in St Louis. I have another name in mind, and I think the statistics not only back up my selection, but also convince you he is the man for the job this season, and maybe a few more  fufutre All-Star selections in the future.

When the Tampa Bay Rays traded for Jason Bartlett in late 2007 with the Minnesota Twins, they knew what he could do on the field with a glove against a sharply hit missile to the hole. They coveted this player as maybe the hidden gem of that trade, and wanted him to be the stop-gap in the middle of the left side of their Rays defense. He was going to be that energy cell, or extreme excitement they needed to shore up a ever improving defense that has never had such a highly skilled infielder in the 6-slot.

So when he finally got on the field in Spring Training 2008, people were still a bit curious about this guy who made his Major League debut in 2004 and only hit .083 in eight games that season. But soon his slick skills and the fluid movement he had with the ball won over the Rays fan base. He had a new  converted second baseman, Akinora Iwamura, who was coming over from third base, and Bartlett made sure to make time every day to spend some quality time with Iwamura to get a better feeling for each other and get an internal bond and thought process going that would eventually click for the Rays.

That is the mark of a truly  great up-and-coming professional shortstop. He made sure he had the bond with the one guy who could make or break this Rays defense for the team. And they did bond into a unit that could convert the pivot on a double play with great percision, and was always in position to take a Dioner Navarro throw on a steal attempt. He made Navarro’s catching efficiency number go sky high with great tags and positioning.

The guy has been poetry in motion to Rays fans. Sure we had gotten shortstops before, heck we even had one standing behind Bartlett in centerfield  in Former First Round pick B J Upton, who was drafted out of High School as the Rays  heir apparent to the Rays shortstop post. But the year progressed and Bartlett seemed to get stronger and stronger in the position.

His skill set has always been strong, but with a renewed confidence and a determination to help the Rays first hit the .500 mark, then get their first post season berth, Bartlett led the way by example. The fact that the Tampa Bay Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) gave Bartlett the 2008 Team MVP award shocked some people, but if you really look at the cold hard facts and  the defensive upgrades and accomplishments of this first year Ray, you could see the game flowed through the 6-hole.

After the Rays were defeated in the 2008 World Series by the Philadelphia Phillies, Bartlett went back home and began to make a transformation in his life. He got married, was blessed with his first kid ( a girl) and he also went through his first arbitration with the Rays getting a significant raise in pay ( $ 1.9 million) for the first time in his career. It seemed through all of this he had become more relaxed and focused when you saw or even spoke to him at the Rays Fan Fest in February 2009.
 

And that bodes well for the team. Coming into Spring Training he had more security with Iwamura, and felt that he belonged here in Tampa Bay. He used that positive vibe to hit at a .327 clip for the spring. Showing leadership and  more confidence he appeared in only 19 games, but left an impression upon fans of some upcoming power and offensive fireworks for 2009.

He started the season pretty much under the radar  as Evan Longoria and Carlos Pena were leading the majors in their categories as he slowly slid higher and higher in the Batting Average ranks during the season. He had kept his focus to be above the .300 mark most of the month and then had an explosive first part of May that skyrocketed him to a lofty .373 mark. That mark was leading the Major Leagues in hitting at the time. Not bad for a guy who was a secondary piece of a trade.

But there is another part of his game that is starting to show significant improvement this season in Tampa Bay. He is beginning to hit the ball for power, which was a component absent from his hitting earlier in his career. Last season, Bartlett did not hit a home run until the last regular series of the year against his old team, the Minnesota Twins. In that series he only had one solo shot, but it did make an impression on Rays fans. Some of us wondered if he had the power we needed out of that spot, or if he was just hiding it right now. He hit another during the playoff run, but settled for only two moon shots during 2008.

 

But that was a curious stat to people who did check out his former statistics before the season started in 2008. Because in 2007, he had 5 homers and 43 RBI, both career highs at the time. We started to wonder if maybe he had peaked a year before he got here. But with the start of 2009, there was a feeling of renewed vigor in Bartlett. He quickly started his average skyward, and his home run power seemed to come out of no where. The guy currently has 7 home runs.

So why should Bartlett, who is showing offensive savvy get a All-Star nod? Well, offense has always been a key indicator for the voting people in who they might consider for the All-Star team. Hopefully Bartlett can move up from his second spot currently behind the American League vote leader right now, Derek Jeter.

So we know Bartlett has the offensive skills to merit the spot. Is his defense really that good for the Rays? Considering the team went from a middle of the pack defensive unit to one of the best in the game in 2008, what do you think? 

He has appeared in 50 games this season for the Rays and has help convert 23 double plays. Bartlett has  put the ball in play 210 times so far in 2009 and has made 4 errors.  His .981 Fielding Average is on par with his peers in the league right now.  In close comparison, Jeter has 248 total chances and 3 errors and 32 double plays for a .988 Fielding Average.

So is Bartlett now a guy to be considered in the top tier of shortstops in the American League?  I truly believe he is in the top 4 in the league without question. I also think he has not even begun to show his top potential yet in the field. Some of the plays he tries to make deep in the hole, or over near the second base bag are ones that most infielders watch go through to the outfield without an sign of remorse. Bartlett now seems to grimace each time a ball goes up the middle or is hit above him towards leftfield. He is showing that primary killer instinct right now that is key among the league’s best players.

The only killer to this right now is his ankle injury he suffered during the tenth inning against the Florida Marlins in game. In that inning Dan Ugglas was attempting to steal second base and Bartlett put his foot on the bag to make Uggla go towards the outside the bag, and Uggla came in and clipped him with his spikes on the ankle.

But with him out of the lineup, you saw a completely different feel to the Rays defense. It didn’t seem to flow with grace and ease, but is rushed and  afraid to make errors and seems a bit timid  compared to when Bartlett played in the field. The Rays missed its field general, the guy  who always pumped up the infielders and makes the defensive calls for the infield.

And even since he has come back off of the shelf after that ankle injury, he hit the ground running as currently has a 16-game hitting streak, second only to the Cub’s Derrick Lee’s 17-game streak earlier in the season. And if you want to talk average, his current .373 batting avaerage is the highest by a shortstop since Nomar Garciaparra’s .391 mark with Boston in 2000.

He missed a total of 19 games for the Rays during his left ankle sprain, and his presence was surely missed in the lineup and on the field for the Rays.  He has hit safely in all 6 games since he came back into the lineup, plus he hit safely in all three of his rehab games before coming back to the Rays.  He is hitting .386 during his current streak, and he currently leads all shortstops in RBI ( 31) and stolen bases ( 14). His hitting would lead the league, but he is currently 18 appearances short of qualifying again for that top spot.

But believe me, the effort and the want to play and help his team has not missed the eyesight of Rays Manager Joe Maddon. He knows that Bartlett wants to play and contribute to the team. His finishing out the game that Sunday was enough to attest to the toughness and spunk of his shortstop. But after a ankle sprain was diagnosed, the decision was easy for Maddon. Risk losing a key piece of your puzzle for a week or so, or maybe lose him along with Iwamura for the season. The decision was easy for Maddon.

“It’s really unfortunate because this young man is having an All-Star season right now,” Maddon said. “There’s no getting around that, and that’s not made up by his manager, that’s pretty much what’s going on. All facets of his game have been spectacular. And we need him back quickly. … He was voted our team MVP last season for a reason, and he’s playing even better this year than last year, on all fronts.”  So you have to wonder after all that, does Bartlett have a chance to impress upon the American League All-Star Manager that he has what it takes to make the squad in 2009?

I am hoping that the fans and the players see his involvement and his accomplishments both in the second half of 2008 and so far in 2009 and get him voted into the All-Star game. He has the ability to shine brightly for the Rays in that game, and he would represent the American League with great flair and confidence. 

Bartlett’s selection would help put the best talent in the AL against the finest the NL has to offer in a great contest. For this year’s game in St. Louis, I am predicting a shot for Bartlett on the AL All-Star team. Based on the early results he will not be the only Rays rep on the field that day. Evan Longoria is getting the top votes for the third base spot, and also pushing Jeter right now for the top vote getter in the early returns.
 

But most of all, Bartlett will not have to go far to show his skills to be selected to the All-Star team. That is because this season’s AL skipper gets to watch him 162 games a year and has seen just how far this young player had come in a short time with the Rays. Oh, did you forget, Maddon is the AL skipper this season, but if he picks Bartlett it will be on merit, not on fondness or an impartial vote.

Jason Bartlett = All Star

The names Bartlett and Iwamura were heard and seen a lot in boxscores and by radio and television announcers while completing double plays for the Rays.

So why should Bartlett, who is showing offensive savvy get a All-Star nod? Well, offense has always been a key indicator for the voting people in who they might consider for the All-Star team. Hopefully Bartlett can move up from the fourth spot currently behind Toronto’s Marco Scutaro, who is having a banner year himself in 2009, and new comer Texas rookie Elvis Andrus. But Bartlett’s current vote tally of 233,482 is considerably behind the American League vote leader right now, Derek Jeter with 664,630.

So we know Bartlett has the offensive skills to merit the spot. Is his defense really that good for the Rays? Considering the team went from a middle of the pack defensive unit to one of the best in the game in 2oo8, what do you think?  He has appeared in 44 games this season for the Rays and has help convert 19 double plays. Bartlett has 180 times so far in 2009 and has made 4 errors.  His .978 Fielding Average is on par with his peers in the league right now.  In close comparison, Jeter has 179 total chances and 2 errors and 21 double plays for a .987 Fielding Average.

In that inning Dan Ugglas was attempting to steal second base and Bartlett put his foot on the bag to make Uggla go towards the outside the bag, and Uggla came in and clipped him with his spikes on the ankle. After an MRI and the medical staff calling for him to sit a few days, Bartlett finally was open to sitting the letting it heal instead of trying to play on it and risk further damage.

But with him out of the lineup, you have seen a completely different feel to the Rays defense right now. It doesn’t seem to flow with grace and ease, but is rushed and seems a bit timid at times. It misses its field general, the guy to pump up the infielders and make the assignments for the infield. They miss that main cog in their machine. Bartlett recently told the St. Petersburg Times, “Part of me wants to be selfish and just get out there and keep playing,” Bartlett said. “But if I do that I could make it worse and be out two-to-three months as opposed to a week or so. “

But believe me, the effort and the want to play and help his team has not missed the eyesight of Rays Manager Joe Maddon. He knows that Bartlett wants to play and contribute to the team.

He has the ability to shine brightly for the Rays in that game, and he would represent the Rays with great flair and confidence. But if he is not in the upper tier of voting and is not selected by the fans votes, he still has a great shot of getting to his first All-Star game. I think the AL All-Star Manager will see that the game needs a guy like Bartlett in it.

That his selection would help put the best talent in the AL against the finest the NL has to offer in a great contest.
