Re: Tommy Hanson...It was three strong innings followed by three shaky ones

I think you are overrating Blanco a bit...he didn't hit much last year (.251/.366/.309) and didn't hit much in AAA this year (.242/.335/.300). Sure he takes a walk, but Schafer was doing that as well. He plays solid defense, but nothing spectacular. With the Braves lineup right now, I'd almost rather have Anderson and the possibility of a .270/.320/.420 line the rest of the way, instead of Blanco, even if his defense isn't good at all. I just think that its a fairly big upgrade for the Braves regardless of whether McLouth replaces Blanco or Anderson

Yeah, exactly. And for an even better, look at their FIPs. 1.71, 3.35, 3.50, 3.65, 6.32

Just wondering why Cole will be eligible for the draft again in 2010?

Joe, as a Braves fan and reader of the WSJ, I couldn't help but notice you changed your pick for NL Champion to the Dodgers on the wsj article from the Braves on your BP article. Any particular reason?

You are right of course, it would be a terrific year. Hopefully, for braves fans everywhere, it isn't the best performance in the OF this year. Honestly, at this point i'd be happy with the same line from Francoeur.

Out of curiosity, where are these new play by play defensive metrics of Clay Davenports' of which you speak?

As a Braves fan I'd be happy with that...that line coupled with good defense and baserunning and he'd easily be an above average player his rookie year

Ah, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for clearing that up!

Great article Shawn. There is one question i've been wondering about for awhile which I was hoping you could clear up for me. How come some Cuban players (i.e. Yunel Escobar) had to be drafted by their team, but others, such as Viciedo who the White Sox just got, are able to be signed by any team? Is there some sort of criteria to determine whether a Cuban player goes into the draft or not? Thanks

Nice quote in Friday's WSJ about the new Yankee Stadium ticket prices Jay. I did a double take while reading that! haha

So is the new replacement level in effect for these cards?

I guess i\'ll use this post to repeat a question I had in the hitters pecota thread, which went unanswered. Are this year\'s PECOTAs using the new, more realistic replacement level and upgraded fielding metrics?

Looking pretty good, thanks! Couple of questions though: Do these cards incorporate the new, more realistic replacement level for vorp/warp? And is the new, play by play fielding metric included for defense in the WARP calculations? Thanks again.

Seconded...it seems that a defensive metric using play by play data would greatly increase the utility of WARP

On that subject, if the Braves hang on to Escobar and shop Johnson, what would be a fair return in your mind? Scherzer straight up seems like too much, and the only attractive young players that the Dbacks have don\'t really play positions needed by the Braves. Maybe something like Doug Davis and a reliever?

I love the \"perfect world projection\", as it allows us fans to dream of what would be if all of the prospects mentioned reached their top end projection, but what would be interesting to see in addition to this is a \"most likely projection\", or a safe bet as to what the prospect is to become.

Pretty good read, Joe. Will this be some type of offseason series for teams that may be able to contend in 2009?

Beautiful Article. It amazes me how all diehard baseball fans, myself included, can remember the smallest of details of the big games they have attended even years later. I was fortunate enough to see a game at The Stadium (my first) this summer, against these same Orioles no less, with Joba on the mound. It was an experience I\'ll never forget.
