What You Missed

4/4-4/8

by Stephani Bee

Here at Baseball Prospectus, we are dedicated to providing you with oodles of cutting-edge sabermetric analysis and keeping our finger on the pulse of the baseball world. With a slew of daily articles, it’s easy for one piece to get lost in the shuffle or for you to overlook a post while you’re busy hiding your monitor from your boss. Just in case this happens to be your situation, here’s what you might have missed this week at BP.

Monday

  • The White Sox appeared tattered by the end of 2010: First they were thoroughly abused during a sweep by the Twins, then they limped to a second-place finish as the club prepared to bid adieu to soon-to-be free agents like Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski. Not looking for a repeat performance, Papa Jerry Reinsdorf pulled out his billfold to re-sign both men and DH Adam Dunn. Despite a poor performance in the Cactus League, manager Ozzie Guillen believes he has the club to beat in the AL Central. John Perrotto brought details on the latest in Ozzieball during Chicago’s opening series.
  • When a closer jogs toward the mound, the first thought in a player’s mind shouldn’t be, “Bombs away!” Yet during the opening slate of matchups in the NL Central, there were an extraordinary number of games blown by the guys paid to slam the door. Noting the considerable amount of closer upheaval in the NL Central in the last 15 years, Larry Granillo checks in on recent closer track records within the division and muses about the potential for another clink to be added to the bullpen turnstile.
