in stand project. At current levels of contribution (

Its that time of the year, baseball fans. Adidas NHL Jerseys From China . The time of year when statheads and soothsayers start firing up the old projection machine to see which MLB teams are the ones to beat. In case you havent heard, MiPS is forecasting the New York Mets to do big things in the upcoming 2017 season.Never heard of MiPS? Youre not alone. Its kind of like ZiPS, which stands for sZymborski Projection System and has become one of baseballs go-to predictors in recent years. Only instead of renowned sabermetrician -- and contributor -- Dan Szymborski running the numbers, MiPS relies on the prognosticative powers of ... the Mets. And no, were not referring to New Yorks analytics department either. Were talking about the actual Mets. Like, the ones who actually take the field and play the game. To be more specific, their pitchers. Behold, the Metropolitans Projection System.While ZiPS has Terry Collins squad pegged for a middling 84 wins (six fewer than the defending NL East champion Nationals), MiPS is decidedly more bullish on the Mets. Although MiPS has yet to release an exact numerical prediction, the general consensus is that the Mets will go as far as their starting rotation takes them, and right now MiPS is higher than Snoop Dogg in a hot air balloon -- unrealistically high, some might say -- on New Yorks starters.During the recent winter meetings, when Washington was on the verge of acquiring ace Chris Sale from the White Sox -- a deal that wouldve given the Nats a top three of Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and Sale, and presumably baseballs best rotation -- Syndergaard suggested that New Yorks starters would still be the superior group.Under any circumstances, it wouldve been a bold statement, but its even moreso given the conspicuously convalescent condition of the Mets rotation. Just how banged up are the Mets arms?If you didnt know any better, youd think GM Sandy Alderson stumbled upon a Groupon for an orthopedic surgeon and was just looking for excuses to use it. In July, ace Matt Harvey had season-ending surgery to combat his thoracic outlet syndrome. In August, while rehabbing from his 2015 Tommy John surgery, Zack Wheeler suffered a flexor strain and was shut down. In September, fellow righty Jacob deGrom had season-ending elbow surgery, as did southpaw Steven Matz. Then theres Noah Syndergaard, who pitched much of the year with a bothersome bone spur but didnt have surgery. After the season, Alderson said the bone spur wasnt significant enough to go under the knife, but who knows -- maybe the Mets had simply maxed out on that Groupon.If youre scoring at home, thats a big ol question mark for every single member of New Yorks projected starting five. The good news is, according to lead MiPS forecaster Thor, all that physical health stuff is overrated.The fact that were all kind of like a tight-knit brotherhood within ourselves, were always rooting for one another, Syndergaard told reporters last week. Weve got a really good camaraderie.So what if theyve, ya know, never actually pitched together in one complete turn of the rotation. Like, ever. All that matters is that they love each other like five brothers from another mother. Mind you, chemistry isnt the only thing the Mets starters have going for themselves. To hear them tell it, theyve got their health too. Thats right: Those big-time boo-boos are bygone.The way things are feeling now, the way the body feels, Im feeling great, said Harvey at a community appearance last week. Ive got some warmth back and no more tingling. The ball is coming out really good right now, especially for December. As for deGrom, he recently told reporters that the post-surgical pain he felt whenever he snapped his fingers has disappeared. It feels like nothing happened, he said. Even Alderson is on the hype train: Going into next season, the Mets GM said recently, I look at it as were eight or nine deep.No tingling? No wonder MiPS is all-in on the Mets. Pain-free snapping? Forget about prop bets for the Super Bowl -- Im booking my flight to Vegas today so that I can put my entire holiday bonus on A Met will win the 2017 Cy Young. Eight or nine deep? Whatever you say, Sandy.OK, OK, maybe Im getting carried away here. In fairness to the Mets, theyre not the only ones asking fans to quaff the Kool-Aid. Tis the (off)season, after all. That magical time of year when every big leaguer is supposedly in the best shape of their lives or working toward being in the best shape of their lives (even Pablo Sandoval!). A time when we all pretend that last years injuries and/or slumps and/or suspensions never happened.Its also worth noting that the Mets arent necessarily force-feeding the Kool-Aid. In fact, depending on who you listen to and which sound bite you choose to focus on, it appears they might even have a grasp on the reality of their situation. Obviously, I dont have a crystal ball, said Harvey, hedging ever so slightly when asked if he expects to return to form next season. Said Alderson: Am I confident theyre all going to be 100 percent? Well that would probably be unrealistic to believe.If they are all 100 percent, and they all manage to stay 100 percent throughout the majority of the season, well then -- and only then -- does Syndergaards tweet hold water. Then and only then does New York belong in the best rotation conversation along with the Cubs and Red Sox . Then and only then are the Mets a safe bet to play deep into October and turn MiPS into the new, tried-and-true face of baseball analytics.In the meantime, with all due respect to Thor, Im going to have to agree to disagree. Authentic Adidas NHL Jerseys .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys Authentic . Third-seeded Murray had the easiest path to victory on New Years Eve, barely breaking a sweat during his 6-0, 6-0 win over 2,129th-ranked Qatari wildcard recipient Mousa Shanan Zayed. .ca NFL Power Rankings, overtaking the Denver Broncos and remaining ahead of NFC competition San Francisco, Carolina and New Orleans.Hearts owner Ann Budge has promised to pay £300,000 of her own money towards the new stand at Tynecastle. The Edinburgh businesswoman has also offered to defer repayment of her £2.5m loan to allow the Foundation of Hearts supporters group to contribute more cash to the project.It has been estimated the main stand will cost around £11m, with contributions of £2.5m coming from unnamed benefactors. Budge has unveiled a detailed payment plan, including a debenture scheme, and will also use funds already in the clubs account.Work on the 7,000-capacity stand is due to begin this autumn, and when completed will raise the capacity at the ground to more than 20,000.In a statement on the official Hearts website, Budge provided detail on how she hopes to finance the rebuild.Our estimates of cost are circa £11m, Budge said. Allowing for some contingency (10%), we are working to a budget of £12m. Hearts owner Ann Budge has also offered to defer repayment of a £2.5m loan Our funding plan is, in summary, as follows: Financial Reserves from the club: £3m; Benefactor Contributions £2.5m; Commercial Contributions: £0.5m; Total available today: £6mClearly, this leaves a potential funding gap of up to £6m. However, I would ask you all to remember this. Over the last two years, with the support of the fans and with sound financial management, we have built up a financial reserve of £3m. There is nothing to stop us doing the same again, over the next two years, with your continued support.What does this mean? Unashamedly, I am asking you to keep doing what you have been doing. We need season ticket holders to sign up again in their numbers.We need ccorporate members and sponsors to continue to back the club across the season. Wholesale Adidas NHL Jerseys. We need FOH pledgers to keep pledging.In short, we need to continue to work together, the club, the Foundation of Hearts, and the supporter to deliver this project. By doing nothing more than has been done over the last two years, the club can once again build up £3m of reserves. While that will be a wonderful achievement, it would still leave a £3million gap. So, what else are we planning to do?We will shortly be announcing details of a debenture scheme - which we are confident will be a great success. We have also been asked by many fans to consider a number of other ideas in relation to the new stand development. More information will be provided on these schemes over the next few months.The other major initiative revolves around the FOH/BIDCO agreement. According to that agreement, repayment to BIDCO should start on 1st June 2016.I have made an offer to the FOH Board that they can defer repaying the BIDCO loan for a period of up to two years, and that all donations made during that period, should continue to be paid to the club. This money would be allocated to the new main stand project. At current levels of contribution (£125,000 per month), this would generate £3m. Finally, I have also offered to waive all interest payments due to BIDCO, during the period of up to two years when this deferral is in operation. This would effectively be my personal contribution of £300,000 to the main stand fund.
