    in Baseball

    ESPN Sweet Spot blogger Joe Janish and baseball pitching motion expert Angel Borrelli discuss MLB pitchers' injuries and provide injury prevention guidance and performance tips for baseball coaches, pitchers, and parents of all ages. In this episode, injuries suffered by Masahiro Tanaka, Doug Fister, Chase Whitley, Shane Greene, Jonathon Niese, and Stephen Strasburg.


    Topics include: What is an elbow flexor strain, and what should a pitcher do if he is suffering from that injury, and what can pitchers do to prevent it? What should a pitcher do when experiencing soreness in the arm? What does it mean when a pitcher has "tingling" in his fingers? What is "ulnar neuritis" and how is that kind of injury treated? What is the importance of the front/landing foot in the pitching motion and what can happen if a pitcher -- like Strasburg -- has weakness in it?


    Also, Angel tackles several myths about pitching, including: should pitchers run after pitching to reduce lactic acid? Can a pitcher safely pitch twice in one day? Can pitchers also be catchers? Should pitchers use a softball to practice the curveball? and other bad advice facing pitchers and coaches starting summer ball.


    Finally, Angel provides a velocity tip that is easy to accomplish for every pitcher at every level.

    Holly Stephey talks to S.R. Lore; The Playground of Life ,New Book

    in Books

    The Playground of Life: Charitable New Book of Poetry, from London Writer, Examines War Between Ego & the Divine Self.John Lennon was absolutely right, the world needs more love. Nobody knows this better than S.R. Lore who, after being diagnosed with a long-term health condition, has spent her entire life seeing the world from a critical yet positive perspective. She, like Lennon, is committed to bringing more humanity and peace to life’s proceedings.As an accomplished poet, Lore is finally publishing her first collection titled ‘The Playground of Life’  a small book with a boundless and powerful big message.The poems in 'The Playground of Life' are mostly from personal experiences on reflection. It analyses life and relationships, especially, love. As some of the poems are written at different periods in the author's life the tone and mood changes to reflect that time and situation.Furthermore, because S.R.Lore grew up with a long-term health condition, she started exploring the meaning of life from a spiritual aspect from an early age. The poems also relate to the conflicted role that one has with oneself when it comes to spiritual matters which she call 'the war between the ego and the divine self'. “I, like millions, have always struggled in a battle between spirituality and the ego. While most let these forces pass them by, I saw it as the perfect topic to focus on through poetry,” explains Lore. “It carries a very transformative message that the world needs to hear, particularly at the current time when discord has never been more prevalent.”But Lore’s project is far from personal gain, as she proudly explains.“50% of each sale will be donated to the UCL Hospital and FareShare, two organizations that have benefited me personally yet suffer from a severe lack of funding.‘The Playground of Life’, from Spiderwize,  http://amzn.to/1BPSWLW

    Ep. 96 - Another Elbow Down to Tommy John

    in Sports

    The Rising Apple Report returns with it's 96th episode! Sam Maxwell hosts, with Staff Writers Rich Sparago and Mike Lecolant joining him on a fantastic spring afternoon post-snow to talk all things Mets!


    Well, another pitcher down to Tommy John Surgery after Zack Wheeler's elbow MRI revealed a full UCL tear. We'll discuss the situation, what it means for his career and what it means for the Mets rotation.


    The lefties seem to be doing better lately, but nothing overwhelming, causing the Mets to possibly explore the end-of-spring waiver wire for southpaw bullpen help. We'll discuss some of those candidates and talk about our own preferences.


    And of course, with no Mets number to discuss, we will talk about the 1996 Metsian season.


    So, join us at 2pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!

    Episode 108: This is a sad podcast

    in Baseball

    In the "YARD GOATS!" edition, Jeffrey and Chris actually recorded before the announcement of YARD GOATS, so this podcast is mostly full of sad things (unless you are a Swedish soccer fan). We touch on Zack Wheeler's torn UCL, discuss our most gut-punching moments as a Mets fan, and consider Wilmer Flores, Mets Opening Day shortstop (again). There are some happy things, we suppose. David Wright hit a big dong, Lucas Duda will probably be good again, and Ronny is an Amazin' Avenue reader apparently (and has some damn stylish glasses). Oh, and definitely stick around for a discussion of Aderlin Rodriguez batting practice laser shows.
