That list of career base-stealing success provides another argument for <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/player_search.php?search_name=Tim+Raines">Tim Raines</a></span> being in the Hall of Fame. Raines has the10th best all-time success rate and 2nd most attempts (after No. 37, <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=1325">Rickey Henderson</a></span>).
There are two Luis Perdomos pitching in the Padres organization. It would appear that this article has a link on the profile page of the wrong <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/player_search.php?search_name=Luis+Perdomo">Luis Perdomo</a></span>.
As I writer of sorts, I have to comment on your use of the unconventional contraction "who're," which is used most commonly in speech, less so in writing for the obvious reason. It jumped out at me. That's all.
In the first chart, is "signed" always the same as "first year under this contract"?
I had trouble following. Then you lost me when you said racial diversity and intellectual diversity "overlap."
You meant "with the former getting the nod yesterday." Peralta got the win, Hatcher the save.
Is that right? -- a .724 OPS indicates an inability to hit left-handed pitching?
anyone want to explain how that season came when his ERA was above 4, but all the seasons with much better ERA, WHIP, FIP were 2.9 or lower?
When you write that Niese is "unlikely to start in 2015" do you mean he's "unlikely to start throwing 200 innings in 2015," or that he's unlikely to be a starting pitcher in 2015 and will move into a swingman/long reliever role?
Two words in defense of "Trouble with the Curve": Amy Adams.
The defense rests.
What IS the minimum professional experience requirement?
First, an excellent recap of a crazy day, Chris. Second, I recommend everyone follow the link to the video of Reed Johnson getting struck by a Mike Fiers pitch while taking over Stanton's at bat. I don't know the Marlins announcer -- I'm not a fan of either team -- but one of them sets a pretty high standard for hyper-emotional unprofessionalism in a broadcast booth. The scene on the field is pretty interesting, too.
You're missing a word in the Yorman Rodriguez write-up. I assume that it should say "he may never become a major leaguer," as opposed to, say, "he will never become a major leaguer."
Perhaps someone can explain the omission of Justin Nicolino.
They recovered well, however.
If Alcantara's promotion is the first glimmer of the great Cub renaissance, the Cincinnati broadcast team was completely oblivious. They did not mention him throughout his first at bat (or even note that there was a batter at the plate) until after he popped up. Meanwhile, the chyron they put on the screen was for Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez.
Ron, Bret, R.J. Mauricio and Jason: Thanks for interrupting your three-day weekends to post this.
Nicolino is with Toronto?
Why do you list players in the order you do?
I seem to remember an article on here saying that doubles generally do NOT turn into homers long term, do I remember correctly?
I think Miggy could lay claim to a 8 power tool if Hamilton has it
I think it was simply being put on the spot on national tv and being expected to perform. not sure LA solves that issue, but if Kemp can stay healthy and be a star and Ethier can put up another solid year he should be much more relaxed
how would you rank beltran? could he put up another season like his last one?
thanks for the answer! another question, how much lower would Aramis Ramirez rank from those 2?
how would you compare Adrian Beltre to David Wright for this year?
Edwin Encarnacion! is he worth being kept in a 48 keeper league?
Can someone give a quick explanation of the value to be derived from Ten Year Forecasts? They show long term trends, obviously, but is there any insight to be gleaned from the granular data?
For many, Fernandomania actually began in 1980, when Valenzuela came out of nowhere for the final weeks of an exciting divisional race in which the Dodgers finished one game behind the Astros. He pitched magnificently from the bullpen: 10 G, 17.2 IP, 16 K, 0 ER, 2 wins and a save (in the year closer Steve Howe won Rookie of the Year.) I followed each game on the radio, and from Vin Scully's vivid descriptions of Fernando's wind-up and mound smarts, and the way he handled one high-pressure situation after another, understood the kid was special.
I'm confused, as at the beginning of your article you used WINS as the only barometer for why King Felix shouldnt have won the Cy Young in 2010, and then say that WINS is a bad measure to use when you are talking about Nova over Pineda. Confused
Kemp is also younger than Braun and Crawford, no?
I was hoping you'd go in2 the impact september callups have on guys we might currently own, guys that could lose at-bats, as i assume most of us know that most september callups r gonna b bench guys
How high of an upside does Tyler Pastornicky have? what r his shots of being the braves starting SS next year?
Will there be a similar column on NL hitters?
Great analysis, as always. However, the link from Michael Taylor's name takes you to the PECOTA page of the Phillies outfield prospect of the same name.
Did I type Cardinals? yikes. Thinking of whether Taylor beats Daryl Jones to the bigs.
Given the Cardinals' outfield situation, is it unreasonable to think Michael Taylor won't get a shot at a major-league corner job until 2011?
