Pebble Hunting: The Best Defensive Game of May

11

Sam Miller

Featuring extreme exploits at second base.

Last month, we started a thing: Trying to identify, and then appreciate, the single best defensive game any player had that month. Partly an excuse to make sweet moving pictures, mostly an attempt to put excellent short-burst defense in perspective, so that we can intuit the value of a great defensive game just as easily as we can process Chris Davis’ 4-for-5 with three home runs. To do that we had to turn these defensive plays into something like numbers, and to do that we turned to Inside Edge, provider of defensive data to major-league clubs, media outlets, and elsewhere. Inside Edge rates each defensive opportunity thusly:

Fantasy Players to Target: Second Basemen

13

Baseball Prospectus

A look at the value picks at the keystone for your drafts and auctions this spring.

Once viewed as one of fantasy’s most shallow positions, second base has enjoyed a multi-year run as a fantasy-friendlier position thanks to a mix of established stars and new young talent creeping into the game. That’s reflected in the staff choices below, as a nice mix of players young and old comprise this collection of second baseman we think you should target in 2014.

Matt Carpenter, Cardinals
Matt Carptenter is an interesting case in that he's likely to regress some next year but I doubt that his numbers will fall off drastically enough to drop him below guys like Ben Zobrist and Ian Kinsler in 2B rankings. I doubt he scores 126 runs again but Carpenter holds a very solid 10 percent walk rate and he did put up 73 extra-base hits in 2013. The lineup behind him is very solid as well, and he has the opportunity to tease 100 runs scored again. He's not above Cano, Pedroia, or Kipnis, but he should be a very valuable 2B again this year. —Mauricio Rubio

Fantasy Team Preview: Arizona Diamondbacks

14

Paul Sporer

The Snakes feature a new closer and a power-hitting first baseman with a case to be the no. 3 pick in drafts this spring.

The Diamondbacks’ moves the last two years have been a bit peculiar and yet seemingly despite their best efforts, they still have a rather formidable team. They have established star talent, quality veteran talent, and emerging young talent. It’s far from a flawless team, but it has the makings of a contender. Additionally—and more importantly—it is ripe with fantasy goodness.

Projected Lineup

Arizona's hitting coach dishes on everyone's favorite unpredictable second baseman.

In an interview last week with David Laurila, Diamondbacks hitting coach Don Baylor talked about Aaron Hill. Hill has, of course, revitalized his career since joining Arizona. Everyone wants to know how he did it. Here's what Baylor said:

In A Pickle: Slugger Off

9

Jason Wojciechowski

Silver Slugger awards shouldn't be controversial, but Jason finds a gap remains between advanced metrics and voters.

When you do an article search on this site for the phrase "Silver Slugger," you get 57 results, the first of which, by Gregg Pearlman, is apparently the 18th article ever written for Baseball Prospectus and the most recent of which is Geoff Young's piece about the Padres throwing their heft around the N.L. West this offseason. (That's #19056.) Young's Silver Slugger mention came because Jason Marquis won one. Pearlman was writing about Barry Bonds. (Or really about sportswriters' relationship with Bonds. This was October 1997. We were innocent once, and young.)

By contrast, when you search "Gold Glove," you see just a smidge over nine times the results. (The first of which, hilariously, is another Gregg Pearlman article -- this one includes a lamentation of the J.T. Snow trade—which is numbered "1" in our content system.)

The Diamondbacks and Dodgers roll the dice with Aaron Hill and Mark Ellis, respectively, Mark Kotsay goes to San Diego, and a pair of backup catchers find new homes.

Transaction Analysis: The Challenge Trade

R.J. Anderson

The Blue Jays and Diamondbacks swap second basemen in a very interesting waiver deal.

Trying to build a contender in this situation isn't the easiest task in baseball.

It's quite possibly as tough a time to be a contender in the AL East as it's ever been anywhere in recent baseball history, with the Yankees and Red Sox spending big dollars and the Rays reaping the benefits of the game's best talent pipeline. Even coming off their fourth winning season out of five, what's a fourth-place team like the Blue Jays to do? Stepping into the shoes of GM Alex Anthopolous isn't the most enviable task in the world at this point in time.
