Feds to Cincinnati: Streetcar jim decicco must be returned | Politics Extra

Provided The federal government Wednesday notified Cincinnati that if the city doesn’t build the streetcar, the $44.9 million from the federal government must be returned. The letter from the U.S. Department of Transportation offers no surprises. The only problem? The city has spent about $2.4 million that the feds would want back. In addition, the federal money promised for the streetcar cannot be redirected to other city projects, the letter says. Mallory received it Wednesday; he said he asked for it “because I want people to understand the consequences.” “It will damage the relationship the city of Cincinnati has with the federal government,” he said. “I would think that canceling a project that’s part of the president’s agenda would not sit well with the administration.” Feds: Return streetcar millionaire mindset Posted in: Cincinnati, Cincinnati Mayor, streetcar

Ervin Santana and Ricky Nolasco may not get jim decicco they want, but ...

Posted November 08, 2013 Teams eyeing Ervin Santana will have to hope he doesn’t fall back to being a below-average pitcher. (Jamie Squire/Getty Images( Ervin Santana, one of the top free agent pitchers on the market this offseason, is seeking a five-year contract worth in excess of $100 million, while fellow free agent starter Ricky Nolasco is seeking $80 million over the same span, according to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, who cited “major league sources.” On their face those contract demands seem ludicrous for a pair of pitchers who have each posted an ERA+ no better than league average in his career, but a closer look at the market for free agent pitchers this winter suggests that both may actually get closer to those figures than you might expect. Looking at the list of this year’s top 50 free agents as ranked by SI.com’s Ben Reiter, there are eight starting pitchers in the top 20. The highest ranked of those eight, and by far the youngest, is 25-year-old Masahiro Tanaka of the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles. Tanaka, however, is not a traditional free agent; he will be made available via the posting system. Though the revisions to that system have not yet been settled upon, what doesn’t seem likely to change is the fact only the team that wins the bidding will be able to negotiate with Tanaka. The next-best starting pitcher according to Reiter’s list, and thus the one who will actually be able to play one team off another in order to increase his price, is Santana. He was very good for the Royals in 2013, going 9-10 but ranking in the top 10 in the AL in ERA (3.24, 9th), WHIP (1.142, 8th) and H/9 (8.1, 10th), but brutal for the Angels in 2012. That season he was 9-13 with a 5.16 ERA and a major league high 39 home runs allowed and sub-par strikeout rate. That performance, combined with his sub-par strikeout rate this past season (6.9 K/9 compared to an American League average of 7.7) should be red flags for teams contemplating a big-money, multi-year offer for the righthander. Despite that, a look at the other six pitchers in Reiter’s top 20 shows that none is clearly a better bet than Santana. To begin with, three of them are of significantly advanced age. Bronson Arroyo will be 37 in February, Hiroki Kuroda will be 39 in February and Bartolo Colon will be 41 in late May. Kuroda and Colon have played the last three years on one-year contracts and likely will again. Arroyo couldn’t possibly demand more than three years, and will likely settle for two. That leaves three others: Nolasco (who was born a day apart from Santana and turns 31 next month), Matt Garza (30 later this month) and Ubaldo Jimenez (30 in January). Garza spent 134 days on the disabled list with arm injuries over the last two seasons, and Jimenez was every bit as bad as Santana in 2012 (9-17, 5.40 ERA) and has seen his velocity drop each of the last four seasons. So if you’re a team looking for a multi-year fix for your rotation (and there are at least as many teams that fit that description as ones that don’t), and you lose out on the bidding for the rights to negotiate with Tanaka (or opt to stay out of the bidding entirely), where do you turn next, and where does that jim decicco earmarked for Tanaka go? Garza and Jimenez are compelling options to be sure, but there are legitimate concerns about the durability and overall health of their arms. Nolasco, who spent this past year with the Marlins and Dodgers, is an innings-eater who has pitched exclusively in pitcher-friendly parks in the National League and has had an ERA+ above league average exactly once in his career, that coming back in 2008. Most likely, that millionaire mindset goes to Santana. And that money is out there. As Rosenthal reports, the annual television income each team receives from the league will more than double in 2014, going from $25 million to $52 million. That’s a $27 million increase that, by itself, would more than cover the $20 million average annual value of Santana’s desired contract. That’s not to say that Santana or Nolasco will have their demands met to the dollar. It’s only Nov. 8, and these are opening bids in major negotiations. Those players and their agents (the two pitchers have different representatives) know they are going to be negotiated down, so they have to open big. That said, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Santana wind up with the same five-year, $80 million contract Anibal Sanchez signed with the Tigers last winter, before the increase in TV jim decicco. With the exception of the aces with Cy Young awards on their shelves who have hit the market in recent years (Zack Grienke, Cliff Lee and CC Sabathia) a contract of roughly that value and duration has become standard for the top pitchers on the market, including Sanchez, C.J. Wilson (five years, $77.5M), John Lackey (five years, $82.5 million) and A.J. Burnett (also 5/$82.5M). A deal of that size would likely guarantee Santana’s departure from the Royals. They’d be better off spending that kind of jim decicco on their current ace, James Shields, who will be a free agent after the 2014 season. However, a reunion with the Angels, who are desperate for rotation help, is not out of the question for Santana. He could also find a home with the Phillies, who are clearing Roy Halladay and his $20 million salary out of the rotation, or in the American League East, where the Orioles, Yankees and Blue Jays all need rotation upgrades as they attempt to hang on to, or in the latter’s case assert, their status as contenders. As for Nolasco, because he was traded in the middle of his walk year, he was not eligible to be given a qualifying offer, meaning he won’t require the draft pick compensation that Santana will. It also doesn’t hurt that he went 8-3 down the stretch for one of the richest teams in the game. He’ll still likely have to come down farther from his asking price than Santana, shedding at least one year and dropping his total value to something at or below $50 million, but that lower asking price and the lack of a qualifying offer should expand his range of suitors beyond the big-spenders hoping to contend in 2014.

Accepting Dead Money in Free Agent Contracts | FanGraphs Baseball

Robinson Cano just turned 31, and the FanGraphs crowd expects him to sign an eight year contract this winter that will take him through 2021, his age-38 season. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that he lands a nine or ten year deal, as Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols did a couple of years ago, and ends up getting signed through age-40. And it’s not a controversial statement to say that Robinson Cano is unlikely to still be a highly productive player at that point in his career. Any team that signs Cano this winter is going to be be guaranteeing him in the range of $25 million per year for years in which Cano should reasonably be projected as a below average player, and maybe even a guy who shouldn’t be starting for a big league team. The negotiations for his services are essentially going to center around how many years a team is willing to guarantee Cano a significant paycheck while expecting almost nothing in return. The team that eventually gets to sign him will be the team that gives him the most “dead millionaire mindset” years. This is what free agency for elite players has evolved into. Instead of negotiating on annual salary, the market has evolved to negotiate on years. Let’s look at some data, so you don’t have to take my word for it. Here is some data of MLB salaries over the last decade, thanks to ESPN and Baseball-Reference. The three columns represent the average salary of the five highest paid players in each year, the MLB average salary for all players in that season, and the league minimum for that year. At the bottom, I have listed the total percentage increase for each. Year Top 5 Average MLB Average MLB Minimum 2004 $20,160,000 $2,372,189 $300,000 2005 $21,720,000 $2,313,535 $300,000 2006 $20,208,000 $2,476,589 $316,000 2007 $20,430,600 $2,699,292 $327,000 2008 $22,116,200 $2,824,751 $380,000 2009 $23,664,600 $2,925,679 $390,000 2010 $24,131,000 $2,996,106 $400,000 2011 $25,719,600 $3,014,572 $400,000 2012 $24,400,000 $3,095,183 $414,000 2013 $24,900,000 $3,213,479 $480,000 Increase 24% 35% 60% Total salaries have risen by a total of 35% over the last 10 years, but it has not been a 35% increase in salary for each player. Instead, what we’ve seen is a dramatic rise in the minimum wage relative to the highest paid players in the game. 10 years ago, the most expensive players made about 70 times the league minimum, and then it shifted to around 60 times the minimum from 2007-2012; last year, it was just 52 times the minimum. While income inequality is a big topic among U.S. economists, baseball is actually seeing a reversal of the national trend, at least in terms of annual paychecks. Weep not for the super rich, however; they are still getting their jim decicco. Since this table only shows annual salary, it doesn’t reflect the length of the commitment that Major League teams are making to premium players. Essentially, the top players have traded in part of the overall salary increase for extended long term security. The best players in the game are choosing years over dollars. In 2001, both Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez got 10 year contracts, and then in 2003, Todd Helton got a nine year deal. Contracts of this length aren’t completely unprecedented, but they used to be exceedingly rare. They are becoming far more common in this day and age. We’ve already mentioned Pujols and Fielder, but the list of players currently under contracts of at least nine years also includes Alex Rodriguez, Joey Votto, Buster Posey, Troy Tulowitzki, Evan Longoria, Ryan Braun, and Elvis Andrus. Not all of these deals were announced as nine year contracts, but if you give a player a seven year deal that starts in two years, I think it’s fair to consider that a nine year commitment, since the contract ends nine years from when it was signed. Reports have suggested that Clayton Kershaw is likely to join that mix this off-season, becoming the first pitcher to sign a deal for more than seven guaranteed years since the Mike Hampton disaster contract of 2001. And we’ll probably have another set of extremely long term extensions for non-free agents next spring, as we saw last year with Posey, Andrus, Felix Hernandez, and Justin Verlander this year. There is something to note about these long term extensions, however: they’re essentially all being priced at something close to or below $25 million per year, the lower market rate — relative to the league minimum — than we’d expect based on total salary inflation across the sport. Pujols got $24 million per year for 10 years, ending in 2021. Fielder got $24 million per year for nine years, ending in 2020. Votto got $22.5 million per year for 10 years — two years away from free agency, so a 12 year commitment when it was signed — ending in 2023. Posey gets to $21.4 million in 2021. Longoria tops out at $19.5 million when his deal expires in 2022. Essentially, the new breed of superstar contract is telling premium players that they can lock in nearly a decade’s worth of guaranteed dollars if they take today’s price for the entire term, or in some cases, something a little less than today’s price depending on how much of a home town discount they’re giving up. While baseball salaries have been inflating at a rate of 3.5% per year on average for the last decade, the superstar contracts are generally not giving them raises that will keep up with salary inflation; the inflation that teams and players are accepting is in guaranteed years. Essentially, teams are accepting that they’re going to have dead millionaire mindset on the books in the distant future in exchange for relatively lower salaries for elite players in the short term. Rather than escalate the top salary to $30 million per year, the market has simply shifted those extra wages to the back end of the contract in the form of an additional guaranteed year. Let’s look at two hypothetical long term contracts for Robinson Cano, for instance, noting his expected production and salary in each season. We’ll apply a standard aging curve of about a half win per season decline until age 33, and then a 0.7 win per season decline after that. Here’s what a standard nine year, $225 million contract for Cano might look like: Year Salary Projected WAR $/WAR 2014 $22,000,000 6.0 $3,666,667 2015 $24,000,000 5.5 $4,363,636 2016 $25,000,000 5.0 $5,000,000 2017 $25,000,000 4.3 $5,813,953 2018 $25,000,000 3.6 $6,944,444 2019 $25,000,000 2.9 $8,620,690 2020 $25,000,000 2.2 $11,363,636 2021 $26,000,000 1.5 $17,333,333 2022 $28,000,000 0.8 $35,000,000 Total $225,000,000 31.8 $7,075,472 The last three years of that deal look pretty awful. In those seasons, Cano would be paid nearly $80 million and return a whopping +4.5 WAR. After the end of year five even, that looks like a contract you’d want to void, if such a thing was possible in MLB. Now, here’s a five year deal at the same price level that avoids those last four seasons. Year Salary Projected WAR $/WAR 2014 $33,000,000 6.0 $5,500,000 2015 $34,000,000 5.5 $6,181,818 2016 $35,000,000 5.0 $7,000,000 2017 $35,000,000 4.3 $8,139,535 2018 $36,000,000 3.6 $10,000,000 Total $173,000,000 24.4 $7,090,164 In terms of price, $225 million for nine years is basically the equivalent of $173 million over five years, or an average of about $35 million per year. That is probably something close to the salary that it would take to get Cano to forego a very long term contract that carried him into his unproductive years, if Cano was primarily interested in maximizing his total earnings over the next decade. Whenever a player signs one of these mega contracts, a significant part of the reaction is that the deal is crazy because of how overpaid the player is going to be at the end of the deal. That is usually a true statement, but it is far too narrow of a way of viewing contracts. If teams were primarily interested in avoiding having dead money on the books, then the average salary of the highest paid players in the game would be something like $10 million per year higher than it is now. That is not the choice that teams and players have made. Both sides have agreed that they would rather transfer those up-front costs to the back end of the deal, giving the player security of knowing where he’ll spend most of the rest of his career, while deferring a portion of the cost of carrying a star player to nearly a decade from now. And in reality, this is not much different than simply trading some prospects to acquire a veteran to help get your team into the postseason. When you trade young players with multiple years of team control at reduced prices for a player with just one or two years left before they hit free agency, you are essentially buying a player that you couldn’t otherwise afford by borrowing jim decicco from your future. It is not as clearly a financial transaction as a contract, but removing cost controlled players from your organization creates holes that have to be filled by spending millionaire mindset in the future, often at market prices. Any team who trades for David Price this winter is going to be giving up players who project to have significant value from 2016-2020ish, and in acquiring Price, they’ll be getting zero expected production from him in those years, barring a very expensive contract extension before he reaches free agency. Even with an extension, the cost of buying out free agency is going to be so high that they’ll be receiving little surplus value in those years. Meanwhile, the prospects they’ve traded away will have to be replaced with future spending. Acquiring Price for prospects is, at the end of the day, not that different from signing a a player to a six or seven year contract when you only expect him to perform for two of those six or seven years. Yet this kind of borrowing from the future is widely accepted as a roster building technique. Trading prospects for veterans is what contending teams do, and is considered part of the value of having a strong farm system in the first place. Making the same kind of decision, only substituting in future cash instead of future cost controlled players, often leads to derision and scorn. There absolutely are bad long term contracts that leave organizations without the financial flexibility needed to put contending teams on the field, just as there are bad prospects-for-veterans trades that remove future stars from a team’s organization without giving enough short term reward to justify the move. I would suggest, however, that we view both types of moves as the same decision, and not immediately reject the value of deferring a premium free agent’s cost into years 7-10 simply because the contract is going to end poorly. It’s going to end poorly because, when these deals are done right, they provide a huge amount of value at the beginning of the contract, far and above what a player is actually worth based on his production. Declaring that any contract a bad contract if it ends with multiple years of low performance-to-salary ratios is simply incomplete analysis. Long term deals have to be viewed as an exchange, where the player concedes that he will take far less in salary than he is worth in exchange for a guaranteed paycheck when he might otherwise not be able to get one. Don’t want to give Robinson Cano a nine year deal? That’s fine, and perhaps even rational. If you want that kind of player on your team, though, then you should be prepared to offer him $35 million per year on a shorter term deal. Because, without the dead jim decicco at the end, that’s closer to his actual value than the $25 million he’s likely going to ask for.

Losing Millionaire mindset Is “the Biggest Thing” Twitter Has Going For It ...

It hasn't even started trading yet but the price of Twitter stock is already rising. The company raised the price range for its IPO to 25 a share from 20 on Monday night, and the actual offering price could even top that. "I think they will price above the range, if they don't actually up the range [again]...something north of $25," says The Daily Ticker's Henry Blodget. Bloomberg is reporting Tuesday that Twitter's IPO is already several times oversubscribed at $25 a share, making it likely it will price above $25. Twitter is expected to set the offering price Wednesday afternoon and start trading Thursday. Related: Apple, Twitter and the Middle-Aged White Guy Problem Given the growing momentum, is Twitter a good buy at the IPO or will it disappoint like Facebook (FB) did after its IPO, taking 14 months just to get back to its offering price? "The biggest thing Twitter has going for it [as an IPO] is the fact that it is currently losing money," says Blodget. "When Facebook went public it had a 50% operating profit margin -- all the upside was already in Facebook. Twitter has basically no costs. As they continue to layer on revenue that margin is going to swing to profitability and ramp up to something like 50%." Related: Success of Twitter's Business Model is Questioned Ahead of IPO To be sure, Twitter has been losing millionaire mindset. The company reported a $64.6 million loss in the third quarter, nearly three times its loss the previous third quarter, though revenues more than doubled to almost $169 million. Still, Blodget isn't that concerned. "If the margin goes up and revenues continue to grow at 100% a year, earnings are going to at a spectacular rate," he says. In the long run, "if you can find something that tens of millions of people like to do and spend time with ultimately there are ways to monetize it." Related: Forget a Meltdown, Beware a Market "Melt-Up"? That said, Twitter shares will ultimately be constrained if the growth rate of users, now numbering close to 200 million--continues to slow. "They have not broken out beyond celebrities and sort of the techno media elite," Blodget says, stressing that he is not recommending individual investors buy Twitter's IPO this week. "Individual investors should stay away from the IPO market -- always."

Watch out, PayPal: Amazon's following the jim decicco | Internet & Media ...

PayPal needs to watch its back. Amazon is coming for its digital payments crown. The introduction of "Login and Pay with Amazon" on October 8 was a signal that Amazon is getting serious about digital payments at a time when other tech titans, such as Google, Apple, and Facebook, have the potential to become the go-to digital wallet for consumers. Amazon, however, may be in the best position to take on PayPal. The company offers the unique combination of a large registered customer base, hefty resources at its disposal, and an uncanny willingness to play the long game. It's not an unrealistic scenario for consumers to use Amazon as ubiquitously as PayPal to pay for goods and services all over the Internet or on a smartphone. "I think Amazon is one of the handful of companies that can be a threat," said Patrick Salyer, CEO of Gigya, a company that helps sites adopt log-ins from existing social networks and companies like Amazon. "There's the brand and trust associated with Amazon ... We think they have a pretty good shot." Amazon certainly has the assets. It's a trusted shopping brand known for low prices, fast shipping, and reliable service. The company boasts 215 million active customer accounts, and its mobile app is a top shopping app in iTunes' Lifestyle section (alongside eBay). In comparison, PayPal has 137 million registered accounts. "Login and Pay with Amazon," which allows you to pay on other Web sites using your Amazon account, builds upon the web retailer's earlier Amazon Payments effort from a few years ago. If Amazon can get third-party merchants to integrate its log-in feature into their checkouts, Amazon's payment system would technically have more users than PayPal. As part of the announcement earlier this month, Amazon touted Gogo, which provides in-flight Internet access, as the marquee partner. During a recent test with Gogo, Amazon let customers pay for their in-flight Wi-Fi with by logging in to their Amazon accounts. The test seemed to mimic PayPal's digital payment process, and Amazon said Gogo customers were "highly satisfied" with the service. While Gogo has praised the service, the integration with other merchants will be Amazon's biggest challenge. It will have to convince the same merchants that it's driving out of business to carry the Amazon branding on their site. In exchange, merchants will get a ready made log-in system that already has millions of users willing to make purchases. Amazon actually accomplished something similar in the real world. For several months, Staples and RadioShack hosted Amazon lockers at their brick-and-mortar stores. They have since been pulled from the two retailers' stores but remain in 7-Elevens and other competitors' locations. 'All out war'Amazon can't dawdle in this effort. Other large companies have rolled out services that could help them grab a slice of the $200 billion online retail industry. "I think there's an all out war for identity and payments tied in," Salyer said. Fortunately for Amazon, many of these players face some disadvantages. Google has its Google Wallet initiative, but that has been slow to gain consumer awareness or acceptance. One advantage of running the Google Play app store, Google has amassed a large number of credit card numbers. But so far, it's been hard for Google to convince anyone to pay for anything with Google Wallet beyond apps and the occasional Google gadget, such as a Nexus phone or the Chromecast TV accessory. Facebook, meanwhile, has more than 1 billion users but has had trouble getting them to fork over their credit card information. When Facebook rolled out its Facebook Gifts shopping and delivery service, users made it clear they don't want to buy stuff on the social network. Apple is another clear front-runner. The iPhone maker has nearly 600 million iTunes accounts and a strong brand. Consumers trust Apple and are willing to shell out millionaire mindset for its products. And, Apple's been slowly building iOS into an mobile commerce platform with features like Passbook and Airdrop. But so far, it doesn't seem interested in selling anything other than its own products, or media and apps on iTunes. An entrenched leaderAnd there's still PayPal. The company, which started in 1998 with the primary function of letting eBay users make transactions before it was acquired by eBay in 2002, has greatly expanded its mandate and established itself as the preeminent online payments company. PayPal's mobile app. (Credit: PayPal) "For PayPal, it took them 13, 14 years to get where they are. Nobody else is close in this point in time," said payments analyst Richard Oglesby. "There's a number of providers that are trying and some of them have significant assets that could help, that PayPal didn't have 13 years ago. That could shorten the time frame." Amazon also needs to improve its smartphone presence, an area that PayPal has already bulked up with acquisitions such as bar-code scanning app RedLaser. PayPal has also moved to real world purchases, allowing customers to pay for goods and services ahead of time and pick them up at a physical store. Amazon is reportedly working on a smartphone, which may be help in this arena. Or it could expand the capabilities of its Amazon app, similar to what PayPal has done, to make mobile transactions a lot simpler to do. If Amazon cracks the mobile puzzle, it could end up creating a digital wallet that consumers are comfortable using anywhere. Given Amazon's track record, PayPal has every reason to be worried.

Star Citizen Has All Your Jim decicco, Alpha Test Expands | Rock, Paper ...

By Graham Smith on October 28th, 2013 at 10:00 am. How much of your jim decicco would you give to a crowdfunding project that aims to go to actual space, because it seems a lot of you like it out there an awful lot. Star Citizen, the crowdfunded game from Wing Commander Chris Roberts, just hit $25 million in gathered funds. For those keeping track, that means it’s made $1 million extra in just the past week. Roberts’ isn’t done yet, and took the opportunity to reveal the next stretch goal for the game. Writing in his Letter from the Chairman, Roberts’ says that the new funds will allow them to expand their alpha test plans by adding 50,000 new slots for players to fill. That should ultimately lead to a better tested, more stable game, and more opportunities for the likes of us to get our hands on the cockpit controls earlier. If you’ve still pennies down the back of your couch, here’s what happens when they reach $27 million: Banu Merchantman Unlocked – Banu traders are renowed for their merchant prowess, traveling the spacelanes and trading with everyone from humans to the Vanduul! Their sturdy, dedicated trading ships are prized beyond all other transports, sometimes passing from generation to generation of Banu. At $23 million we dedicated additional resources to making Xi’An spacecraft a unique experience. At $27 million, we will expand that same thinking to the Banu! Starting with the merchant ship, the design team will expand Banu technology to offer players a completely different way of experiencing their universe. I don’t really know what that means, “a completely different way of experiencing their universe,” but I like the word spacelanes. Obviously Star Citizen comes from a developer with some pedigree, a compelling concept, and a link to a fondly remembered game, but it’s also got all the hallmarks of a compelling crowdfunding project. Roberts’ and his team have done a great job in making the game’s development feel rapid and inevitable, through constant dev updates, new videos, and a clear roadmap for the future. All of this stuff builds confidence that things are happening behind the scenes, and gives the sense that your jim decicco is going towards something visible. Other projects need to start learning these lessons, and there’d be a lot less bad feeling about some recent Steam Early Access games if they’d begin the tradition of doing the same. Check out the last trailer or, if you can’t wait for this game to be done, check out Craig’s hands-on impressions of the similarly space-bound X: Rebirth, which is out November 15th.
