The Daily Prospectus: Fraud

by Joe Sheehan

MLB's top management is not to be trusted, and needs to be overhauled.

The Daily Prospectus: A Late Pick-Me-Up

by Joe Sheehan

It's 11:49 p.m. EDT, and I'm sitting here staring slack-jawed at a 13-inch television set. In St. Louis, the remnants of what was a crowd of 47,000 people are going nuts, and the Cardinals are jumping around as if they've won the World Series. Edgar Renteria has just hit a three-run home run to cap a six-run ninth inning, giving the Cards a 10-9 victory.

The Daily Prospectus: Time to Go, Kenny

by Joe Sheehan

Is there any general manager who has done less with more than Kenny Williams has done in the last 20 months? He inherited a division winner with a low payroll, a core of good young players and a farm system bursting at the seams with talent. Under his watch, the team has shed talent like my wife's cat Ashley sheds hair, while adding payroll and bad players like an Angelos on speed.

The Daily Prospectus: The Other Side?

by Dave Pease

It's not much of a secret that we're strongly pro-player in baseball's labor disputes--a quick look at the contents of the Baseball Prospectus Baseball Labor and Economics page will tell you that. Some of us are more interested in the business side of things than others, but we've discussed these issues amongst ourselves and we're pretty much all on the same side of the fence. Unlike some of my partners in crime here at BP, I won't froth about labor issues without some serious provocation. While I believe the owners lie about their financial situation with reckless abandon and wield the relocation/contraction stick with all the subtlety of "The West Wing," I can't get too righteously indignant about it.

The Daily Prospectus: Leverage

by Joe Sheehan

Lost in the chaos that surrounded the All-Star Game--and the spate of anti-marketing that followed it--was that the players did not set a strike date. They met, they authorized team votes on whether to walk, but no date was set, and none has yet been set.

The Daily Prospectus: Back Into the Gap

by Joe Sheehan

Last year, I started messing around with something I call the Walk Gap, which is just the difference between a team's walks drawn and walks allowed. Because we've spent so much time hammering home the importance of plate discipline and throwing strikes, I thought this might be a good indicator of team success.

Premium Article The Daily Prospectus: Ten Days, One Column

by Joe Sheehan

Last Tuesday night around 9 p.m., my mother asked me how I was planning to write about the All-Star Game if I wasn't watching it. I told her that I wasn't writing my column while away, and that I wouldn't write about the All-Star Game when I returned because no one cared about the All-Star Game past about 10:30 a.m. the next day. You can't make this stuff up, folks.

The Daily Prospectus: A Sense of Entitlement

by Gary Huckabay

So how come every time it looks like there might be some sort of a labor stoppage in baseball, some group of people feels the need to put together some sort of "fan organization" with a bad acronym, with no apparent purpose except to whine?

Premium Article The Daily Prospectus: Cool Thoughts

by Joe Sheehan

I'm seeing a lot of Raul Mondesi/Jesse Barfield comparisons from Yankee fans. I guess there's a resemblance: both are right fielders with great arms and high strikeout rates who came to the Yankees in midseason trades.

Premium Article The Daily Prospectus: July 2, 2002: SABR 32

by Joe Sheehan

Over the weekend, I attended my first Society for American Baseball Research convention. It was the 32nd get-together for the organization, of which I've been a member for about three hours.
