The Keeper Reaper: Outfielders for 10/18/11

8

Rob McQuown

The Keeper Reaper examines the worthiness of Bruce, Holliday, Span, Revere, Colvin, Blackmon, and Leonys Martin this week

Starting off on a tangent, the Player Forecast Manager has been updated with 2011 final stats, as many have already noted in this blog post: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=15322. This is good news for discussing keepers. In fact, for easy reference, here are direct links to the PFM reports for the various league sizes used in Keeper Reaper (note that minimum dollars have been set to $5 so that the reports display faster – this can be extended to include players who had worse 2011 seasons, if desired):

Shallow (10-team mixed, 3 keepers): http://pfm.baseballprospectus.com/index.php?cid=6431
Medium (12-team mixed, 5 keepers) http://pfm.baseballprospectus.com/index.php?cid=6430
Deep
(15-team mixed, 6 keepers) http://pfm.baseballprospectus.com/index.php?cid=6432
NL-Only
(12-team NL only, 5 keepers) http://pfm.baseballprospectus.com/index.php?cid=6435
A
L-Only (12-team AL only, 5 keepers) http://pfm.baseballprospectus.com/index.php?cid=6434
Super Deep
(20-team mixed, 10 keepers) http://pfm.baseballprospectus.com/index.php?cid=6433

Value Picks: Outfield Review

5

Rob McQuown

A look back at the best and worst outfield VP picks of 2011.

Value Picks is such a mixed bag, especially before NL-only and AL-only players were separated out. Sometimes, a “Value Pick” is a player the authors think should be owned in every league, even shallow mixed leagues, because they're just that good. Other players are more appropriate for deeper mixed leagues or shallow single-league leagues. And, of course, some players are total bottom-of-the-barrel shots in the dark (here's looking at you, Trent Oeltjen!)

Fantasy Beat: Outfielders

4

Rob McQuown

Rob graduates a couple of VPers and says hello to Albert Pujols's replacement and a Marlins speedster.

Last week's NL pick was promoted Tuesday... to be a DH. If Wily Mo Pena hits a little bit, he could keep a roster spot, and it's difficult for a manager to pass on so much power potential. He's up to 5% ownership in CBS leagues, so get him now, before Interleague games are finished. Even happier, two of last week's additions have been picked up in enough leagues to graduate, making room for even more players for shrewd owners to pick up.

Prospectus Q&A: Jim Dwyer

3

David Laurila

The hitting coach with the Twins' High-A Fort Myers farm club talks about teaching young players.

Jim Dwyer understands the art of hitting. Currently the hitting coach for the Fort Myers Miracle, Minnesota’s High-A affiliate, Dwyer has spent the past two decades coaching and managing in the Twins' system, including a nine-year stint as the roving hitting coordinator. An outfielder for seven teams over 18 big-league seasons as a player, he retired in 1990 with a career average of .260 and 77 home runs. Dwyer sat down with Baseball Prospectus to talk about his approach to hitting, including the work he’s done with star pupil Ben Revere, at the Twins' spring training complex.

Two top basestealers, one in the majors and the other in the minors, talk about the running game.

Basestealing is an art, and two players who excel at it are Jacoby Ellsbury and Ben Revere.  Ellsbury has done it the highest level, having pilfered 70 bags last season while establishing a Red Sox record for thefts.  Revere, a 21-year-old outfielder rated as one of the top prospects in the Twins organization, swiped 45 last year in the High-A Florida State League.  In separate spring-training interviews, the two speedsters discuss the art of thievery.

Future Shock: Future Top Dogs, AL

8

Kevin Goldstein

Looking ahead to who could top next year's prospects lists in the junior loop.

One of the most frequent questions I get, be it via e-mail, chats, or the comment sections in the articles, is which player on [insert team here] has the best shot at moving into the Top 101. That's a much different question from who is the best prospect not in the Top 101, as the focus needs to move solely to growth potential. Building on last year's "Future Top Dogs" series, let's keep that category in this year's version, while also taking an honest list at last year's prognostications.

The Twins' system makes for an zesty blend of polished pitchers and high-upside position players.

Kevin Goldstein

Despite two tremendous talents to add to an already impressive stock in young talent in the majors, the Twins don't have the depth they used to.

Future Shock: First Round Update

0

Kevin Goldstein

Kevin has all the information on the first-rounders who signed, and those who haven't yet.

Sunday's piece on the draft generated a whirlwind of email responses, many of them looking for specific information about a specific pick. Here's a broader look at where the first-round selections are at, both signed and unsigned. Again, as I wrote on Sunday, despite the 13 first-round picks who remain unsigned, and despite the deadline looming at just over a week away, most within the industry feel that all 30 picks will be professionals when we wake up on August 16.

Prospectus Q&A: Mike Radcliff

0

David Laurila

Sitting down to talk to the Twins' scouting director after the draft to talk about his organization's picks and overarching organizational philosophy.

The Twins have one of the best farm systems in baseball, and Mike Radcliff is a big reason why. The longest-tenured--and arguably the most respected--scouting director in the game, Radcliff has a long track record of successful drafts. The core of the Minnesota lineup--Justin Morneau, Joe Mauer, and Torii Hunter--are Radcliff picks, as are highly-touted pitching prospects Matt Garza, Glen Perkins, and Kevin Slowey. Radcliff joined the Twins organization in 1987, and has been the team's scouting director since 1994.
