The Astros upgrade on their rotation. The Selig's finally announce their sale of the Brewers. And the A's project to improve their offense, despite losing their star shortstop to the most expensive fourth-place team in history. All this and much more news from Houston, Milwaukee, and Oakland in your Monday edition of Prospectus Triple Play.

  • Offseason Moves: News for those hiding under a rock for the last few months: the Houston Astros added Andy Pettite and subsequently Roger Clemens to their rotation. (Surprisingly, Astros Manager Jimy Williams resisted the urge to name either of the homecoming heros his opening day starter, instead going with the PECOTA-approved Roy Oswalt.)

    There's a new bit of conventional wisdom that's gaining traction in the media. It says the Oakland offense will be so bad in 2004 that they'll have trouble besting the amped-up Angels for the division title. I should know; I myself indulged in this bit of convention in a recent column I wrote for FoxSports.com, the gracious purveyors of my primary day job. The question I should've asked before pontificating on the subject at hand is this: is it actually true? Is the Oakland offense really in such desperate straits. First, let's acknowledge is no longer a team built around its run-scoring capabilities. Ever since the Moneyball furor, some observers haven't enjoyed pointing out that the A's are in fact a pitching-and-defense outfit. Pointing this out is no longer breaking news, and it never really was all that subversive. It's just true; Oakland hasn't ranked in the top half of AL in runs scored since 2001, but they've ranked second and first, respectively, the last two seasons in fewest runs allowed. Nevertheless, runs are runs, and the A's appear poised to lose quite a few of them on the offensive side of the ledger. Consider that shortstop Miguel Tejada and catcher Ramon Hernandez are both elsewhere. Tejada, among AL shortstops, finished third in Value Over Replacement Player (VORP), while Hernandez ranked fourth among AL catchers in VORP. Tejada and Hernandez also ranked second and fourth, respectively, on the team in VORP. That's a serious hunk of production lost by the team that ranked only ninth in the loop in runs scored.

    The White Sox will regret hiring Ozzie Guillen. The Astros' Brad Ausmus and Jose Vizcaino: how to flush $4 million down the toilet. The A's and Jays hook up for yet another trade. The Phillies won't solve their bullpen problem with Billy Wagner alone. The Mariners look poised for a fall. These and other news and notes in this edition of Transaction Analysis.

    Prospectus Today: Awards, Deals, and Stupid Owner Tricks

    0

    Joe Sheehan

    For the first time in a while, I didn't think there were any major mistakes in the BBWAA awards. Or more accurately, I didn't find any outcome that I couldn't understand. That's not to say that everything was perfect. The one award that clearly went to the wrong person was the NL Rookie of the Year honor. Dontrelle Willis had the story, though, and combined with his clear advantage over Brandon Webb in the W-L column, there wasn't much doubt that Willis was going to win. It was the wrong choice, but one that had been a fait accompli for some time. American League voters got their rookie honors right, although perhaps for the wrong reasons. Angel Berroa came from behind to grab the award, something that rarely happens with this particular balloting. Berroa was helped by the refusal of two voters to put Hideki Matsui on the ballot, despite Matsui being eligible by the rules of the voting and pretty clearly one of the top three rookies in the AL this year. The two writers, Bill Ballou and Pat Souhan, both cited Matsui's experience in Japan as a factor in their decision, and both are wrong for doing so. Matsui was a rookie, and acceptance of a ballot in this process should mean acceptance of the eligibility rules, not an opportunity to make a statement against them.

    Bill Stoneman and Mike Scioscia get rewarded for 2002. The Indians and Rangers swap pitching prospect for hitting prospect. The Yankees grab Armando Benitez in a non-Sierran move. The Jays get a steal in Stewart-for-Kielty. These and other tidbits, plus a full array of Kahrlisms, in this edition of Transaction Analysis.

    Casey, TK, Gardenhire: How Does Your Prospect Grow?

    0

    Steven Goldman

    BP correspondent Steven Goldman sees the Twins messing with top young players Johan Santana and Bobby Kielty and reflects back on Casey Stengel's handling and mishandling of young players.

    One of the simultaneously pleasurable and vexing aspects of the Twins renaissance of 2001-2003 has been the team's successful reliance on homegrown players. While the Twins have succeeded in launching better than a dozen major league careers over the last few seasons, they have nonetheless made only a half-hearted commitment to several of their most promising prospects. Manager Ron Gardenhire and his predecessor Tom Kelly have indulged in an off-again-on-again, possibly self-defeating pattern of usage with several youngsters, potentially retarding the growth of some while keeping inferior players in the lineup.

    Restrained by the owner's parsimony from buying their offensive technology off the shelf, the Twins have been forced to entrust their fortunes to what they can draft and grow in the minors, a luxury that many of the more munificent clubs deny themselves. Fortunately for the Twins, the farm has been fed and run with such competency that in the last few years they've seen a surfeit of quality prospects, more than the Devil Rays have seen in their entire existence, more than the Tigers have seen in a couple of decades.

    BP favorites Marcus Giles and Bobby Kielty finally get their due, but Johan Santana's imprisonment threatens to start a new revolution. Plus notes on the Braves' bullpen usage, Torii Hunter's slump, the bizarre tale of Josh Hamilton, and Lou Piniella's quest for an aura-emitting closer.

    A box score's value is greater than the sum of its roto points. Weather, crowd size, umpiring crew, pitcher abuse, baserunning blunders, ball/strike and groundball/flyball ratios, substitution patterns, clutch hitting, clutch pitching--with enough time and a high enough geek quotient, you could nearly recreate an entire game from a box score. Last Thursday night Minnesota beat Detroit 3-0 in front of less than 9,000 customers, a quick, two-hour game that produced a nice line for Kyle Lohse but not much else for the highlight reels. It's a box score you could scan in seconds if you were looking for roto events. But if you spent some time with it you could figure out nearly as much of what happened as if you had been there.

    In an article that appeared last week on ESPN.com, Peter Gammons provided a list of 20 players whom respondants to an informal straw poll described as candidates for a breakout season. The list, derived from a survey of major league executives, included a mix of pitchers and hitters, five-tool talents and makeup guys, united only in their ability to tease hibernating fantasy leaguers into dreams of greener days ahead. If one needs any reminder that lists like these are little more than a grownup's version of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, it's worth reviewing a similar list that Gammons produced last year.

    In an article that appeared last week on ESPN.com, Peter Gammons provided a list of 20 players whom respondants to an informal straw poll described as candidates for a breakout season. The list, derived from a survey of major league executives, included a mix of pitchers and hitters, five-tool talents and makeup guys, united only in their ability to tease hibernating fantasy leaguers into dreams of greener days ahead.

    If one needs any reminder that lists like these are little more than a grownup's version of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, it's worth reviewing a similar list that Gammons produced last year. That list includes roughly equal representation of the good (Alfonso Soriano and Derek Lowe), the bad (J.D. Drew), and the ugly (Juan Uribe), as well as four players whose performances were so impressive that they made repeat appearances on this year's list.

    Now, none of this is meant to be a knock on Gammons, or the lists he has compiled. Everybody likes to talk about breakout candidates this time of year, ourselves included (Eddie Yarnall, anyone?). Having formerly moonlighted as a daily team correspondent for another baseball website, I can attest to the fact that virtually every player provides at least some excuse each winter for gushing commentary, delusions of grandeur, or other forms of irrational exuberance.

    As it happens, however, we're unrolling a new forecasting system at BP this year--one that is also preoccupied with the question of breakout candidates. The PECOTA system--short for Player Empirical Comparison and Optimization Test Algorithm--seeks to identify potential breakouts by comparing a player against a database of his historical peers. In so doing, it comes up with an objective estimate of the probability that a player will display marked improvement in the upcoming season (defined as an increase of at least 20% in his Equivalent Runs per plate appearance, or a decrease of at least 20% in his PERA, relative to a weighted average of his previous three years of performance). We refer to this estimate as a player's Breakout score. Readers interested in a more extensive treatment of the PECOTA system will find it in this year's book, and in the PECOTA glossary provided here.

    One brief caveat: the PECOTA system is new technology. That doesn't mean that we stole it from the Raelians, or that we haven’t tested it thoroughly. But sometimes PECOTA provides us with definitive and unexpected answers, and we need to work backwards to try and explain why they came about. That's a bastardization of the scientific method, and I'll ask that you'll excuse me as I run through the hitters on Gammons' list.
