Talking White Sox and Indians in our preview coverage of the division so nice we had to break it up and discuss it twice.

1) Kenny Williams seemed to have a case of split personality this offseason. Is he rebuilding, planning to contend, just resting, what?

Fantasy Beat: Power Outages

12

Marc Normandin

Sluggers who haven't gotten sluggy all that much so far, and whether or not they will.

Despite offensive levels being up around the majors, there are many sluggers that aren't pulling their weight. With nearly one-third of the season already wrapped up, it's time to start making decisions about which hitters are likely to bounce back, and which ones are likely to continue to disappoint. Below we have a hand-picked list of some of the hitters with the lowest Isolated Power (ISO) figures in the league; all of these players were expected to hit for some power, but so far, none of them have delivered.

Preseason Predictions

28

Baseball Prospectus

BP's dirty dozen makes their prognostications to generate the wisdom of at least one small crowd.

Today we reveal the Baseball Prospectus staff predictions for the division standings and the major player awards (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American and National Leagues. Each staff member's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division with first-place votes in parentheses, plus the results of our pre-season MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting. Picking favorites for the Wild Card for the respective leagues initially might have seemed easy, since the selections universally favored the second-place team in the AL East, while all but two voters picked their second-place teams in the NL East to earn the non-division champ playoff team, but a tie in the rankings had to be broken in favor of the team named the Wild Card winner on the most individual ballots, which is sure to upset some people.

For the MVP voting, we've slightly amended the traditional points system in place that's been used elsewhere, dropping fourth- and fifth-place votes to make it 10-7-5 for the MVP Award, and the regular 5-3-1 for the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards (that's 5 points for a first-place vote, 3 points for a second-place vote, etc.). Next to each of these selections we've listed the total number of ballots, followed by the total number of points, and then the number of first-place votes in parentheses, if any were received.

Player Profile: Alexei Ramirez

Marc Normandin and Eric Seidman

The free-swinging Cuban takes his shot at adding a post-season slam to his rookie record.

Like many baseball players who make their way to the United States from Cuba, a lot less is known of Alexei Ramirez' career prior to his time in the major leagues than would be the case with a player from anywhere else on the globe. There were scouting reports and statistics available for those who were interested in signing the Cuban native, but for the Average Joe, learning about his previous playing time is a difficult endeavor. Today, we will take a look at what we do know about Alexei Ramirez, and how that helps us uncover what kind of player he will be going forward.

Lies, Damned Lies: PECOTA Takes on Second Basemen

0

Nate Silver

The list of top keystone prospects includes a mix of young players to watch and older players who fell out of favor.

When we last ran an installment of the PECOTA Takes on Prospects series, gas prices were nearing $4.00 a gallon, the Democratic primary looked like it would never end, and the stock market was more jittery than Will Carroll on his fourteenth cup of coffee. All right, so perhaps not all that much has changed. But let's get back on track by tackling second basemen.

The AL Central will be a dead heat, according to the BP staff, with the East and West showing more separation.

Today we reveal the Baseball Prospectus staff predictions for the division standings and the major player awards (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American League. The National League predictions will follow, along with the staff picks in some fun miscellaneous categories.

Each staff member's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division, plus the results of our preseason MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting.
