What the Contenders Need

29

R.J. Anderson, Jeff Euston and Kevin Goldstein

What do the Orioles, Red Sox, Yankees, and Rays need heading into the deadline, and where might they find it?

With a little less than a month to go until the non-waiver trading deadline, talks between teams are heating up. In a seven-part series, several BP authors will be covering the needs, potential fits, and more for the contenders in each division, as well as a rundown of the top 10 player trade targets. Today, we take a look at the AL East.

Four years after the Twins and Mets pulled off a blockbuster, almost no one involved is still standing.

Taking a look at the popular website's iPhone application.

With the Baseball Prospectus App coming to an iPhone near you (and currently available on Android phones), it's about time we take a look at another potentially essential baseball-related iPhone application: the Baseball Trade Rumors iPhone App. Spawned from Tim Dierkes’ MLBTradeRumors.com, a website self-described as “a clearinghouse for relevant, legitimate baseball rumors,” the Baseball Trade Rumors app aims to bring the interesting and oft-updated content from its web-based cousin to the world’s most popular mobile device. Following in the footsteps of Marc Normandin, I’ll be taking a critical look at the Baseball Trade Rumors app, reviewing the pros and cons of the app’s features, and then finally giving my final grade once all aspects have been considered.

Joe Girardi is happy with his Yankees but thinks they are capable of more, along with other news and notes from the major leagues.

Joe Girardi isn't a taskmaster. The Yankees' manager might occasionally get thrown out of a game, but he's not much of a screamer or yeller and rarely draws attention to himself. Billy Martin he is not.

Ahead in the Count: The Poor Return on Dan Haren

12

Matt Swartz

The quartet the Snakes received for their ace leads to a few questions about player valuation.

In June, Eric Seidman and I discussed the Diamondbacks’ starting pitchers with some focus on Dan Haren, explaining that he was particularly unlucky. At the time of our article, Haren’s ERA was 5.35 and his SIERA was 3.08. Haren would be the ace of many pitching staffs in the major leagues, and is signed well below market value through 2012, with a reasonably priced option for 2013.

On the Beat: Midweek Update

24

John Perrotto

The Winter Meetings after-party stands to blow away the event itself, with changes coming on multiple fronts.

Bud Selig is usually so quick to remind everyone that such concepts as the wild card and interleague play were added to Major League Baseball during his commissionership that one fears he might blow out a rotator cuff while vigorously patting himself on the back. However, with attendance falling and television ratings down, Selig is admitting that the grand old game has some problems. On Tuesday, he announced the formation of a 14-person special committee for on-field matters that includes field managers, general managers, and club owners, among others. Glaring in their omission were players and umpires.

Ahead in the Count: How To Make Up a Good Trade Rumor

32

Matt Swartz

Seven simple rules to make your Hot Stove trade rumors more realistic.

Big baseball fans love October; huge baseball fans love November, too. Now, I'm not talking about the occasional World Series that peeks around the corner into November, I'm talking about Hot Stove season. The Hot Stove League is a great circuit for baseball fans, because every team is currently undefeated and nobody other than the most recent draft class is untradeable. Anybody could potentially be out there on the mound pitching your team a shutout on the first Monday of April. Anybody could be hitting a grand slam for your team in the first inning.

Prospectus Q&A: Cody Ross

3

David Laurila

A conversation with the well-traveled Marlins outfielder about a frenzied debut and his peregrinations around the game.

Cody Ross is genuine. The Marlins outfielder may not be a superstar, but he personifies what fans love to see when they look beyond a player's statistics: Ross is not only humble and hard-working, he has a sincere appreciation of what it means to hold down a spot on a big-league roster. Now 28 years old and with his fourth organization, Ross was given his first opportunity to play full-time last season, and he responded by hitting a workmanlike .260/.316/.488 with 22 home runs. Originally drafted by the Tigers, the native of Portales, New Mexico is putting up solid numbers again this season, leading the Marlins in extra-base hits and ranking second on the team in home runs. Ross talked about the path he followed to Miami, some of his best memories along the way, and why he doesn't like hearing his name mentioned in trade rumors.

Each team's got a list and is checking it twice, but not everybody gets everything they want this time of year.

As has been well-documented, the free-agent market has been extremely slow to develop; to date only 11 of the 171 players who filed for free agency have signed contracts. There is no word yet if Donald Fehr has asked Congress for a bailout.

On the Beat: Programming Diversity and Other Graces

25

John Perrotto

Fans will soon have something new to be thankful for, the Pirates sign reality-show contestants, and news and notes from around the majors.

With Thanksgiving only a day away, there is something new for baseball fans to look forward to and potentially be thankful for. In this time when we pause to consider all of the things that we often take for granted, there is also the upcoming arrival of the MLB Network, which will launch on January 1 and be available in nearly 50 million homes, making it the largest network debut in cable television history. The network will air 24 hours a day, and include live game broadcasts, replays of classic games, and original programming.

Every Given Sunday: Waiving Good-bye?

0

John Perrotto

Some veterans who may get moved this month, umpires dodging lightning bolts, disgruntled Venezuelans, and more developments on the diamond.

While most of the heavy-duty trading is over now that the deadline to make deals without securing waivers passed on July 31, there are still potential swaps to be made. A couple of relievers cleared waivers and changed teams this past week; the Rays acquired right-hander Chad Bradford from the Orioles, and the Phillies picked up left-hander Scott Eyre from the Cubs. The Red Sox had a deal in place to add to their already impressive arsenal by trading for Padres outfielder Brian Giles, but the San Diego native invoked his no-trade clause, preferring to remain in his hometown with the last-place Padres rather than join the contending Red Sox.
