Phillies Still In Contention To Land Burnett - RealGM Wiretap Despite indications that they will not sign anyone before Spring Training opens later this week, the Philadelphia Phillies are very much in contention to sign A.J. Burnett, according to sources.
It is unclear if the two sides are close to a deal, but the chances have improved since Ruben Amaro said, "It's more likely we'll go [into Spring Training] with what we've got."
Hal Steinbrenner Brokered Deal With Alex Rodriguez - RealGM Wiretap
Hal Steinbrenner was the principal member of the New York Yankees' front office to discuss Alex Rodriguez's transition away from the club.
The Yankees are essentially releasing Rodriguez, who it was announced on Sunday will play his final game in pinstripes on Friday while moving into an advisory role as he's owed $26 million next season.
Rodriguez isn't on speaking terms with Randy Levine and Brian Cashman also has a damaged relationship with the slugger.
"The relationship now is professional and good," Cashman said. "I don't avoid him, and I seek him out on certain matters. You can live in a world of grudges or you can forgive and forget."
Kershaws Deal Could Benefit Scherzer - RealGM Wiretap
Clayton Kershaw's seven-year, $215 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Dodgers could eventually benefit Max Scherzer.
Scherzer, who will turn 30 in July, is four years older than Kershaw and has one fewer Cy Young award.
"Yet as baseball has shown time and again over the years, it's not always about direct comparisons Vernon Hargreaves III Rush Jersey , but markets," writes Jason Beck.
"With Kershaw now signed, Scherzer and Boston's Jon Lester move to the top of the potential free-agent list. Unless Scherzer agrees to an extension with Detroit in the coming months, there's a decent chance he could enter next offseason as the top free agent available -- not just for pitchers, but possibly for any position."
There is an epic battle being fought on the Internet between the mighty forces of the left-brain ‘analytarians (those who worship at the feet of the almighty Google analytics) and the upstart underdog right-brain creatives. Lines have been drawn in all out trench warfare leaving the under-manned creatives scrambling for evidence to back their claims of superior marketing influence and impact.
Woe is the plight of the poor creative who dares to challenge the influence of the Great & Powerful Google and its vast cadre of graduate math majors armed to the teeth with a dizzying array of numbers and statistics, all presented in pretty, colorful charts and graphs. Which side are you on: the left-brainers with their B52 size statistical bombs filled with numbers that can be interpreted in any way that suits their purpose like your morning astrological advice, or the lowly right-brainers only equipped with research papers from neurobiologists, psychologists, and various other social scientist types who actually study human behavior? This is war, and its a dirty business to be sure.
To The Victor Go The Spoils
Business is often described in terms of war strategy and to be sure the spoils do go to the winner, but like war, the winner is not always on the side of right, and by right I mean correct. But first a cautionary note: if you are looking for The Seven Immutable Bulleted Points Guaranteed To Help You Find Your Marketing G-Spot Mike Evans Rush Jersey , you can forget it, thats a secret Im not prepared to divulge; however what I am prepared to do is tell you a story about a monkey, a monkey that will tell you more about the influence and impact of experiential Web video marketing than any reading of the analytic tea-leaves.
Jacob Braude, in an expert blog post on the ‘Fast Company website entitled Mirror Neurons And Their Role In Marketing writes about researchers who implanted electrodes in the brain of a monkey in order to map which neurons controlled the monkeys movements. And like many important discoveries, serendipity followed, another argument for following the creative forces, but thats a discussion for another time.
Ice Cream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream
Numbers are merely data, not information, they can only tell you part of the story, so to quote the famous Paul Harvey, ‘heres the rest of the story. One of the researchers decided to get an ice cream and when the monkey spotted the researcher eating his ice cream the electrodes lit-up like the giant Times Square Ball on New Years Eve. Eureka!
What the researchers discovered was something called simulation, a process where mirror neurons … mirror in your brain an experience you see Gerald McCoy Rush Jersey , hear, or read. In other words, the monkey vicariously experienced eating an ice cream just by watching the researcher enjoying his ice cream – Holy Baskin Robbins – this is important stuff, at least if you want to learn what makes an effective marketing or advertising presentation. The conclusion: your unconscious uses physical experiences to make sense of abstract ideas – even when you are only looking at the experience. So heres the secret marketing g-spot, I swore not to divulge: if your marketing initiatives, including Web videos, display ads, text content, etc. dont provide a shared brain experience with your audience, you are not going to win the marketing battle no matt.
