Added major league translations.
Loved the shout out.
Great minds think alike, John.
Similar to the Astros three-year, $15.0 million dollar deal with Brandon Lyon.
Looks as if the Tigers are nearing a three-year deal with Benoit. Thoughts?
With the A's infield defense, Iwakuma won't need to worry about his SO9.
Are you sure it wasn't the 2001 ALDS? Hah.
When healthy (and given the chance to start 32 games), De La Rosa could throw just under 200 innings.
Carl Pavano may be next on the list for "Dark Horse Free Agents." He had one helluva season with the Twins (17 wins, 221 IP, 4.15 SIERA).
Nope, mistake on my part. This lists the total season salary for each player -- Rangers are paying $2.25 million of Molina's $4.5 million dollar contract.
Yup, I figured it out. I posted the wrong draft of this article. I have my editors look over the first before I update the stats for the final draft. Fully admit my mistakes here. Stats should be clean and spiffy now.
Fixed. Thanks for the help. Stats sometimes get mixed up when you're writing DURING a World Series game . . .
Stats have been updated. In terms of Andrés Blanco, he has yet to make a playoff appearance.
Per email request, added some information at the beginning of part I (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=12347) and summary of acquisitions here for part II.
Just to add, here are Tim Hudson's postseason stats (including his start today vs. the Giants) - 54.2 IP, 54 H, 28 R, 20 BB, 36 SO, 3.49 ERA

Added Gonzalez. I'm interested to see if he stays with Atlanta.
Burrell wasn't included in this list because he signed a minor league deal with the Giants - he was not traded. I added Daniel Hudson, who has been phenomenal since landing in Arizona. Did the White Sox give up on Hudson too early?
Nice job, Brandon.
I would just like to say that this article in particular has a lot of meaning for me. I am a Type-1 Diabetic myself, so I can relate to the week Dylan has had and what he has been going through - aside from the whole "Major League draft" thing...
Well thanks Will. And thanks to rest of the readers here. I'm proud of this one.
In my opinion, Brain, the right direction would've been to acquire someone like a Westbrook/Myers and acquire a Cantu/LaRoche. Reagins still has a chance to do both, with the main focus being on a big bat. Imagine having a run prevented = a run scored plus an extra bat for support?
Hey guys. I believe the Angels could've competed with the rotation they had, vying that they made some moves to shore up the bottom portion of it (a 4th or 5th starter). I'm not here to say the Haren move was bad - clearly they acquired an amazing pitcher. Every team could use a couple of extra pieces if they're seriously considering a postseason spot, and acquiring Haren was no exception. I was not criticizing Reagins for making the deal, but rather to say now that he's made it, he can't just give up on the 2010 season. You can't acquire an ace in July, no matter the circumstances, and say a club has given up on for the rest of the year. Imagine if Reagins got his hands on Brett Myers, D.J. Carrasco to patch up the 'pen, and a LaRoche or a Cantu. In my eyes, that 8.5 gap would seem like an easier challenge to overcome.
Collin, is that a Matisyahu reference (King Without a Crown)?
I hope everyone dug the article! It was my first for Baseball Prospectus, and I really had a lot of fun with it.
