Checking the Numbers: SHINO-myte!

11

Eric Seidman

Those who switch-hit in name only make up a rare cadre all their own.

A few weeks ago I found myself engrossed in a Tommy Bennett article on the Braves and stumbled upon his usage of the term SHINO when describing Melky Cabrera. The acronym stands for Switch-Hitter-In-Name-Only, and refers to some hitters with 'S' or 'Both' under the Bats column on their player pages, and specifically the ones who might want to think about changing that status. They certainly switch, but they don’t offer much in the way of hitting. The term tickled my fancy, in part due to the fact that I’ve had an article on switch-hitters in my to-do queue for over a year now that was set to focus on those who consistently struggled from one side of the plate. Though the title of that shelved article involved Bobby Kielty and not this term; as we’ll see, maybe Kielty should have been included in the title.

Playoff Prospectus: ALCS Game One Report

0

John Perrotto

BP's on-the-spot coverage of the series opens with a Red Sox victory in which they ground down Indians ace C.C. Sabathia.

BOSTON-Terry Francona sat in his office about an hour after the conclusion of the first game of the American League Championship Series and smiled. No team in baseball takes the sabermetric approach to hitting quite like his Red Sox. They make the pitcher work, running up starters' pitch counts ,and then teeing off on them when they begin to tire, and then continue their assault on the bullpen.

Under The Knife: So Excited

Will Carroll

Will brings you the latest updates on Carlos Quentin, Rocco Baldelli, Kerry Wood, Bobby Crosby and Hanley Ramirez.

If there's nothing like a vacation, there's also nothing like a productive day to catch up on things at home. I spent most of the day chained to my laptop and my Bluetooth, talking to sources, reading up on what I'd missed and planning the next week of my coverage. Injuries never stop, and the flow is key to how I cover them. Maybe some people can wait a week to cover things and yes, there's some perspective lost by the daily flow, but this is the way I do things, soaking myself in the injuries and information.

Two different approaches at the plate, and two stacked rotations. Christina has the most in-depth preview of the Athletics-Tigers series you'll find anywhere.

Okay, so it's Cinderella with some serious mojo versus the Moneyball-Meets-John Jaha Memorial Edition A's, and everyone's fascinated because it's another delightfully Yankee- and Red Sox-free American League Championship Series involving real ballclubs and stories more interesting than who gets Connecticut.

Playoff Prospectus: Twins versus Athletics

Joe Sheehan

Two of the most successful small-market teams in baseball meet in the Division Series--again.

For all the talk of how postseason baseball is dominated by teams in big markets, these two small-market franchises have now accounted for almost a third of the AL's playoff slots since 2000. They play in a pair of universally derided parks, the Twins' Metrodome and the A's Coliseum. The former has always been a target of cracks, while the latter was a nice little park before the Raiders ruined it with an addition in the late 1990s.

The A.J. Burnett era gets underway in Toronto, Eric Gagne gets some more company on the DL, and Craig Wilson gets to start at first, probably to get shopped.

The Nationals start to fall apart, Jason Isringhausen may get coddled a bit, steroids are still in the news, and Leo Mazzone has his work cut out for him.

"We're not going to sit here and watch another 10 games like the 10 games we've already had. We have to right the ship. They have to right the ship. And if they don't, then we can release guys, we can trade guys. We'll do what it takes to get better."
--Nationals' GM Jim Bowden, on the team's early struggles (Washington Post)

Christina runs down all of the American League moves from the past week, as teams are already needing to tweak their rosters after some unfortunate injuries and some unfortunate decisions.

The Cubs shuffle through pitching options, the Brewers have one of the most interesting rosters in the game, and the Dodgers fight through injuries as they try to stay in the race. This and much more in Transaction Analysis.
