The home choreographs the movement through the site, negotiating the gentle grade from arrival to landscape with all dwelling spaces oriented out to sea. Triple glazed curtainwall and large south-facing overhangs support a passive solar strategy while the untreated torrefied wood boards and stone cladding ensure the long-term durability of the home. These climatic adaptations provide shelter and resilience from the hostile Maritime weather without obstructing access to nature.Save this picture!© Julian ParkinsonSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Julian ParkinsonDesigned through an extensive consultation process with the owners, this home draws inspiration from their European sensibilities – relying on exquisite design and craft – within an understated, quiet, and elegant structure.Save this picture!© Julian ParkinsonThe home’s interior is divided into served and servant spaces. A thick band of storage along the entry side of the home conceals all the support spaces while allowing for unobstructed views out to sea. The stone hearth and terrace extend from inside to outside to connect with the landscape and expand the home’s livable areas.

Hoornstra: Baseball’s designated hitter rule could benefit from compromise

first_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros “I would not, not force the DH on the National League,” Angels manager Joe Maddon told me in spring training last year, the last time the universal DH suggestion was brought to life.“The National League game is much more thought-provoking,” Maddon said. “If you want more offense, don’t worry about getting one more guy in the lineup. Worry about teaching a different method of hitting a little bit.”“My desire is we don’t sanitize things in the game too much,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell told me around the same time. “I think strategic parts of the game are what makes it a great game.”Like Counsell and Maddon, I prefer a game with more strategy, not less. It helps if the fruits of these strategies are readily obvious to fans. Moves and countermoves translate better than launch angles and spin rates.There’s nothing wrong with a faster-paced game. Far from it, in fact. MLB’s pace-of-play initiatives (automatic intentional walks, limiting mound visits, futile attempts at reducing the time between pitches) have had little effect to this point. This year, relief pitchers must face a minimum of three batters, unless the inning ends first, and that might nudge the average time of game downward. The average game time reached 3 hours, 10 minutes last season, a record. It’s doubtful a universal DH rule would make much of a difference. Last season, the average AL game was less than two minutes shorter than the average NL game.Yet the National League game was better in 2019. It gave us more baseball. It gave us more strategy from the dugout. It also gave us more strategy from the batter’s box. Hitters set new single-season records for home runs and strikeouts in 2019. American League teams combined to hit 180 more homers than their NL counterparts. Despite having the benefit of the DH, American Leaguers struck out more in 2019, not less.So, no, I’m not eager to see the NL game disappear. Maybe the question of whether or not to allow the DH in both leagues is a false dichotomy. Could the two leagues forge a compromise? If so, what might that look like?Here are three options.Option 1.Let the home manager decide whether the DH is in effect on a game-by-game basis.This is my favorite idea, at least in theory. It restores some autonomy to the manager’s seat. It introduces an extra layer of pregame strategy. It gives the home team an advantage beyond batting last in every inning and hearing the roar of the crowd.The biggest implication: pitchers who fail to hit, and hitters who can’t play a position, would be more easily exploited, while a two-way talent would have an even more decisive advantage.Shohei Ohtani could hit on the days he starts for the Angels, and force the other team’s pitchers to bat for themselves at home. On the road, opposing managers might take the Angels’ DH away – but at the cost of forcing their own pitchers to hit. Would Nelson Cruz have to learn a position if he wants to start a game outside of Minnesota? That would be Rocco Baldelli’s problem.Option 2.Allow the DH to stay in the game as long as the starting pitcher remains in the game.If you miss a good starting pitchers’ duel, this option is for you. Say it’s the top of the fifth inning, the pitcher is struggling, and the home team’s DH is due up in the bottom of the inning. Now the manager has an extra decision to make: remove his starter for a fresh reliever and lose his DH, or let the starter try to work out of trouble?Related Articles Dodgers’ Will Smith: ‘I feel like it’s been five years’ since his 2019 debut Harvard-Westlake alum Lucas Giolito throws no-hitter for White Sox Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros If you dislike “openers” – relievers who start the game, and only pitch one or two innings – this plan is not for you. Effectively, this option exchanges one layer of strategy for another. It also reduces the impact a DH can potentially have on each game. Cruz, arguably the Twins’ best hitter, would rarely bat in a late-game situation when he’s in the starting lineup. Teams would be incentivized to stash better hitters on the bench, perhaps at the expense of their starting DH.It’s imperfect, but another example of a possible compromise.Option 3.Mandate that starting pitchers bat for themselves, then allow managers to insert a DH once the starter is removed from the game.This is the opposite of Option 2, and it would likely elicit the opposite effect. Openers would be encouraged. The value in having a deep bench would evaporate. Double switches would die. Potentially, we’d see better hitters taking late-game at-bats, but essentially this is what we already see in the National League. Relief pitchers rarely bat as it is, so this change would merely allow the same pinch-hitter to bat for multiple relief pitchers in the same game.If MLB insists that messing with 47 years of tradition would better the game, so be it. But the DH doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing proposition. There’s a broad middle ground to be found, if the league wants to look for it. Think the designated hitter is coming to the National League?“The suggestion, often made, that the pitcher be denied a chance to bat, and a substitute player sent up to hit every time, has been brought to life again, and will come up for consideration when the American and National League Committees on rules get together.” Those words were printed in 1906. Even 114 years ago, the chatter around the DH rule was an old one.The National League has mandated pitchers hit for themselves in every non-interleague game since 1973. That might change a year from now, according to a report that surfaced this week. It’s hard to take any such report too seriously until the universal DH becomes part of the league’s official rules. The momentum behind the rule change is obvious: it would achieve one of Commissioner Rob Manfred’s explicit goals of lowering the average game time.It would also tick off some very interested parties.
