On the Beat: Fold Up the Umbrellas and Play Ball?

7

John Perrotto

The pitchers line up for Game 4.7, Moneyball: The Movie, plus rumors and rumblings from around the major leagues.

PHILADELPHIA-Charlie Manuel is usually media-friendly, accessible, and easy-going, but the Phillies manager refused to talk to reporters Monday night after Game Five of the World Series was suspended due to rain with the score tied 2-2 in the middle of sixth inning at Citizens Bank Park. Word was that Manuel was upset about the way the whole situation was handled, and he did not completely deny that on Tuesday while talking to reporters after MLB decided to delay the resumption of the game until Wednesday in a series the Phillies lead 3-1.

As in the AL, the Central division is as tight as can be, while in the East two Mets are predicted to take home some hardware along with their division flag.

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 National League, 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 pre-season MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting.

The league's best-record playoff team against its worst, but you might be surprised who the favorite really should be.

Who would have thunk that we'd see the Diamondbacks playing the Cubs in a postseason series? Well, you'd might have thunk it if you'd done been reading PECOTA, which predicted both of these mild surprises. That not withstanding, this is not the even matchup that you might expect from two teams that took until the last weekend of the season to confirm their date at the prom. One of these clubs, if fact, has no excuse for losing.

If you want fame, acclamation, and All-Star recognition, maybe playing time--more playing time--is the best way to judge.

Welcome to the latest edition of Prospectus Toolbox. We're back to conceptual topics this week-we're not going to talk about a specific statistic or report, but rather the factor that effects how statistics and performance are perceived. That factor is time, specifically playing time.

Morning in Chicago

John Perrotto

How is Jim Hendry's spending spree working out so far?

The Chicago Cubs are trying to answer the following riddle over the course of the 2007: What do you get for spending $296.05 million on free agents in one offseason? It wasn't much in the first month, as the Cubs finished April with a 10-14 record. The team has picked up the pace in May, going 5-1.

"We're playing more relaxed now and everyone is having fun," said Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano, their biggest off-season catch. "I don't think we were relaxed early in the season. I think it's taken us a while to kind of put everything together."

Christina is more optimistic about the Padres' infield switcheroo than most, and the Yankees reverse the natural course of things by swapping salary for prospects.

Prospectus Today: The Disconnect

0

Joe Sheehan

What we're about to see in the free-agent market bears no relationship to what we've seen in the past few years.

So we get Aramis Ramirez for five years, $75 million. We get a 38-year-old Gary Sheffield coming off a 150-AB season and a surgery for two years and $28 million for his ages 39 and 40 seasons. We get an industry valuing the right to negotiate with a single player at approximately a fifth of the value of some franchises.

Detroit's still atop the league, but for how long? Is a 3-3 week enough to lift the Royals out of 30th place? How far have the Braves fallen?

Crooked Numbers: In Reverse

0

James Click

Our view of the season would be very different if it had played out exactly in reverse to reality. James rewinds the year, and shows us how.

The length of the baseball season can easily obscure some important trends that are developing. Teams like the A's get noticed because their rise from the depths has been so dramatic that it breaks free of the mass of information built before its arrival. But there are may other trends that can easily escape our eyes because so much of the season has already passed.

The Cubs made a steal of a deal; the Expos are getting Vladimir Guererro back, and not a moment too soon; the A's are investing their money unwisely; the Cardinals take another hit in losing Matt Morris; and the Padres get a small-scale boost in regaining Phil Nevin. All this and much more news from around the league in your Tuesday edition of Transaction Analysis.
