What can PITCHf/x tell us about how the switch to starting affects relievers, and what can we conclude about this spring's candidate for conversion?

About 10 days ago, Ben Lindbergh wrote about five pitchers who are expected to make the transition from the bullpen to the rotation, examining their chances of doing well in their new roles.

In the paragraphs that follow, I’ll have another look at data pertaining to this subject.

Some baseball-related observations from my two week vacation to California earlier this month.

As I mentioned on Friday's Tater Trot Tracker post, I've been away from Baseball Prospectus (and most everything, really) for nearly the last two weeks on vacation. As someone who grew up in California (and who has many family and friends out there), but who hasn't visited in nearly six years, the Terrific Girlfriend and I were due for a nice long trip across the state. The fact that SABR's annual convention happened to be in Long Beach that week just made it all the more perfect.

As a first step back into the swing of the baseball world, I present to you some notes, observations, and things learned while away on my summer vacation:

From Ted Williams' home run in his final career at-bat to Sadaharu Oh's record-breaking blast and beyond, there have been some remarkable home runs hit in baseball history. Here's a look at six of them.

On the Beat: Building Something Special

John Perrotto

The Athletics' young rotation is showing flashes of greatness along with other news and notes from around the major leagues.

Considering the Athletics were among the very first major-league teams to embrace sabermetrics, it is only fitting that manager Bob Geren believes he has found the formula for success. While Geren's formula is not mathematical in nature, the numbers of the byproduct are quite impressive.

Prospectus Hit and Run: The Decline and Fall of Yankee Stadium

29

Jay Jaffe

However great the place over the broad sweep of its history, recent seasons have given cause for discontent.

Back on September 13, a week ago last Saturday, I attended my final game at Yankee Stadium, the last of over 130 contests I've witnessed there over the course of 13 seasons. Like the Yankees' doomed run of consecutive postseason berths, like the team's residence in the House That Ruth Built, like so much else this season, my stay at the ballpark ended not with a bang but a whimper, as a listless lineup appeared barely able to summon the energy to go through the motions of losing to the Tampa Bay Rays, 7-1. The Yanks didn't score until the ninth inning, or even draw a walk on the afternoon. Who were those pinstriped zombies?

Prospectus Today: An Extended All-Star Engagement

Joe Sheehan

Perfect or imperfect, too long or just long enough, the All-Star Game was one to remember.

My love of baseball was passed down to me through my family, and more specifically my mother, who has been a sports fan and participant her whole life. Mom and I would go to a bunch of Yankee games each season, and while her tolerance for long games, poor seats, and big crowds was never high, two of those weren’t a problem in the Bronx in the 1980s.

The Red Sox close out the World Series, and remind us that there's more to it than just a trophy.

It is a clich to say that we can't quantify everything in baseball. As the amount of information we have grows, as people like Dan Fox and David Pinto emerge to parse that information in new and innovative ways, as we gain a deeper understanding of the processes behind the statistics, we get closer to being able to measure the game and its players with a precision heretofore unimagined. Baseball science, as it were, is in its heyday.
