Prospect Debate: Lewis Brinson
by
Christopher Crawford, Craig Goldstein and Mauricio Rubio

<< Previous Author Entries Next Author Entries >>

The Dodgers fired their manager, who did fine.

When I was a kid, I earned the nickname “Donny” from my sister thanks to my habit of breaking into a discussion by asking “what’s going on? what are you talking about?” and the recent success of The Big Lebowski. I can’t count the number of times I was told I was out of my element. It’s this phrase, heard in the thundering tone of John Goodman’s Walter Sobchak, that came to me throughout Don Mattingly’s tenure with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

Stolen bases are down across the league, so where can fantasy owners turn to find swipes for their squads?

There were 2,505 stolen bases last season. Sounds like a lot, right?

Dynasty Dynamics: Position-Player Rebound Candidates

Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

These 10 hitters could see their values tick back up next season.

Let’s be honest. If you’re reading this column you’re probably not in the playoffs, and if you somehow are the best advice on what to do from here on out is probably ¯_(ツ)_/¯. That’s right, it’s September 2015 and we’re still shruggy-ing. Anyway, since you’re looking towards next year, we thought we might do the same by highlighting 10 players that you might want to target heading into the offseason. For the most part, these are well-known quantities who had down seasons, and could/should see a rebound. We attempted to vary the quality of player for the difference in league depth that our various readers encounter, but there aren’t any unknowns, to be certain. We covered position players in this iteration, and will be back at the end of the month with some pitching options.

The final Wrap of the year as we say good night to all the minor leaguers.

With the minor-league season winding down, this will be our last weekly wrap of the season. There's less action, though still some notable movement as players get put in position to experience playoff action.

On The Shelf
Nick Williams (Phillies, Eyewitness Account) was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list, and there's a chance he'll return this season, as Director of Player Development Joe Jordan stated.

Dynasty Dynamics: Discussing the Top Five Second Basemen

Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein

The cream of the present-and-future crop at the keystone.

In our last Dynasty Dynamics, Craig and I broke down the top four dynasty third basemen and came to a rough consensus as to how they should be ranked heading into 2016. Because we’re incapable of producing original column ideas more than twice a year, we’ll now do the same thing with second basemen. Enjoy!

This week's wrap covers another slew of promotions as well as some injury news.

As many 2015 first-rounders continue their ascent up the organizational ladder, a 2014 first-round pick had his halted by surgery. Here’s this week’s wrap:

On The Shelf

2014 first-round pick Cole Tucker underwent shoulder surgery, which could knock him out for the majority of the 2016 season, as the timetable to return is typically 10-12 months.

Congrats on Your New Job

It's the time of year when recent draftees get promoted; there's also some injury news for the Cubs.

This week's Wrap is brought to you by fellow BPer Matthew Trueblood's strongly endorsed favorite song: Twisted Measure's cover of "Let It Be." It (the Wrap, not the song) features updates on the health of numerous Cubs players and promotions aplenty.

On The Shelf

Billy McKinney (Cubs, Eyewitness Account) fouled a ball off his knee, resulting in a hairline fracture that will end his season.
