A new second baseman helps the Dodgers to a hot start, a young third baseman helps keep the Twins above water, and an old third baseman might have something left for the Giants.

David Wells looks to buck the Fenway curse on left-handers, the Reds try to replace Barry Larkin, and a look at the Padres productive farm system--all in today's Prospectus Triple Play.

In the last five years Wells has thrown 945.1 innings of 4.00 ERA/4.34 RA ball, and only once in the past nine years has he made fewer than 30 starts. Add it all up and you've got a guy who shows up for just about every start and throws something between league average and slightly-above league average ball. For a short-term deal between $4 million and $9 million, in this market, that sounds fantastic.

The Braves need a second base backup, the Rays could create another closer, and the Jays sink their sunk costs--all this and more in today's Prospectus Triple Play.

The Astros handed the leadoff job to...Adam Everett(?!), the Cards sport two-thirds of Generation K, and Gary Matthews Jr. worked his way into the starting center-field job in Texas.

Of course, that doesn't mean that it will be followed.

The White Sox debate the immediate future of Brandon McCarthy, the A's get a new owner and the Phillies could look into an infielder-for-pitcher trade.

Baltimore's on the verge of dismissing a once-hyped prospect, Colorado begins a youth movement, and the Mets have acquired yet another walk machine for Rick Peterson to tinker with.

  • The Life of Riley: There was a time when Matt Riley was the jewel of the Orioles' farm system. Now, his time in the orange and black may be coming to an end after a grand total of four major league wins. The whispers out of Baltimore indicate that Riley could be dealt by Opening Day. He was in the mix for the fifth starter spot when camp opened but seems to have fallen behind Bruce Chen and the leading candidate, Rick Bauer.

    Job battles figure to go down to the wire for the Angels, Cubs and Brewers.

    Who's on First (and DH): The Angels may be planning to use Juan Rivera and Jeff DaVanon as a platoon for the DH slot. With Darin Erstad hanging on to first base by way of his Gold Glove and reputation for being a team leader, one wonders what will become of Casey Kotchman. PECOTA projected the following for these four players in 2005:

    How would Barry Bonds' absence affect the Giants? Who will fill out the Dodgers' rotation? And will Joe Mauer ever be an everyday catcher? This and more in today's Prospectus Triple Play.

    Penny's absence looks to push lefty swingman Wilson Alvarez into the rotation, at least temporarily. Alvarez enjoyed a solid 2004, making 15 starts and relieving 25 times for a 4.03 ERA and 102 strikeouts in 120.2 innings pitched, good for a VORP of 21.0 runs. He's no stranger to injury himself, having missed all of the 2000 and 2001 seasons due to rotator cuff surgery, and his swingman role reflects the team's willingness to place only so many eggs in his oversized basket.
