Jason Bourgeois has been good against left-handers, with a .328/.369/.409 line. His BABIP against them is .349, as opposed to .240 against righties. Of course with 200 career PA against left-handers, small sample effects come into play, but he'll be useful for more than defense and running.

Next year, would you write a piece about who you'd choose before voting ends?

He apparently selected Torres for defense. And John, Gonzalez has 3.1 wins above replacement to 3.0 for Jeter. His choices conform very closely to the WAR on Fangraphs. Since I don't vote just on the current year, I didn't so much in my voting.

Every time I think of Stephen Strasburg, I think of a Prior type breakdown. I can't argue with Philips.

His average is held up by a sky-high BABIP.It is .436 while his BABIP since coming to LA is .319, and so is is career average.

Last year, the standing on April 24 correlated .54 with the final standings. Of the 13 teams with winning records on the 24th, 11 had winning records at the end of the season. So the early records cannot always be disregarded. This year the April 23 record will probably be less predictive. The reason I say that is that the correlation with last years records is .04. Got to be an anomaly. http://www.baseball-reference.com/games/standings.cgi?select=2008&year=2008&month=4&day=24&submit=Find+Games
