Pebble Hunting: This Time, We Count

Sam Miller

Putting the focus on the focus on Jeter, and other All-Star observations.

One of our writers, Craig Goldstein, had an idea for the All-Star game that we didn’t get to, though I thought it had some merit: Which All-Star games have “belonged” to which players? Last year’s “belonged” to Mariano Rivera, for instance. Cal Ripken’s final game “belonged” to Cal Ripken, and so on. This year’s belonged to Derek Jeter like nothing in baseball has ever belonged to anything else. Bud Selig’s retirement was limited to a two-question commercial-break interruption. Tony Gwynn’s death was not even mentioned, not once. Neither was the death of Ralph Kiner. There was no aside noting that Tim McCarver was enjoying retirement after calling more All-Star games with Joe Buck than any broadcast duo in history. This was all Jeter’s.

Why, despite losing Ben, we're as excited as ever about the future of Baseball Prospectus.

So now we've done that: the first issue of Baseball Prospectus since 2012 that was not edited by Ben Lindbergh. Still pretty good, right? We had some great prospects coverage, thick fantasy insight, a penetrating interview with Travis d’Arnaud, a podcast, some laughs. Analysis looking back, analysis looking forward. A slate of articles Ben would be proud of.

You fool.

So you want to bet on the Home Run Derby. Some people would judge you for that. I’m one of those people. Totally judging over here. But I do plenty of things that I could be judged for, so I won’t judge you for being judged. We’re all a little judgeable.
