Six good fan videos of Clayton Kershaw's final out.

You might have noticed while watching Clayton Kershaw's final out last night that, in between shots of Kershaw's wife, there were shots of fan after fan after fan after fan holding up a cell phone. All those videos had to go somewhere, and these are five of them, shot from various parts of the ballpark, all posted to YouTube since last night and all giving you a pretty non-nauseating sense of what it was like in the stands last night.

What did scouts say about Gwynn as an amateur?

On today’s episode of Effectively Wild, Sam Miller and I responded to Tony Gwynn’s untimely passing by discussing some of our favorite statistical fun facts from the Hall of Famer’s one-of-a-kind career. One of Sam’s was Gwynn’s 1981 batting average in 99 plate appearances at Double-A Amarillo: .462 (42-for-91). Yes, that’s a small sample, but consider the kicker that makes it even more impressive: The 21-year-old Gwynn was in his first professional season. Drafted in June, he’d hit .331/.406/.612 in 42 games for Walla Walla in the Low-A Northwest League before being bumped up to the Texas League.

On the avoidable mistake the Tigers made.

Hi friends! What would you say if I told you that the Justin Verlander extension was just as big a mistake as the Ryan Howard extension? Would you call me an idiot and never listen to me again? Good, because I would never say that. Never. However, the Tigers did make one mistake that was similar to Ruben Amaro Jr.'s, and it looks increasingly likely that they'll pay for it. At Fox Sports, I went over Verlander's early-season struggles, why they're different than last year's, and why the two years a club has to wait and see might be its most valuable, if often overlooked, asset. Block quote time!

Continually updated video library of 2014 First-Year Player Draft prospects.

It will be updated every single day and the new videos for a particular week will be featured at the top of this page with the archived videos directly below. Chances are if you are looking for a draft prospect you will find some video of him on this page between now and June.

A look at which teams have had the most hits and misses in recent drafts.

What you'd probably like to know during amateur draft week is which teams will get the most production out of the 2014 draft. Unfortunately, that's a question that we won't be able to answer for a while. So as a substitute, would you accept an examination of which teams have drafted the most (and best) major leaguers in recent years? As part of BP's partnership with Fox Sports, I attempted to answer that question (and others) in an article up today at the Fox Sports MLB page. Here's a teaser:

For the final time: History made!

Well this will be the end for this feature. So, in our last week of new pitching lines, let's see what we've learned. Below are the 50 most recent pitching lines that starters have produced, all of Wednesday's and Thursday's starts. Think you can guess which ones are new? I'm going to guess. Go ahead and guess! I have no idea how many are going to be new, but based on our typical averages, five to seven is a good estimate.
