BP Boston
by
Bryan Joiner

<< Previous Tag Entries Next Tag Entries >>

Within an unusual and thought-provoking trend, there is an extremely unusual and extremely thought-provoking subtrend.

With the year winding to a close, Baseball Prospectus is revisiting some of our favorite articles of the year. This was originally published on May 26, 2016.

We, as an internet, have thoroughly discussed the player opt-out, but oversaturation and (a lack of) timeliness have never stopped us before here at Tools of Ignorance and they will not stop us now. In December, at the beginning of the height of player opt-out-mania, I wrote about why this contract structure might have increased in popularity. I hypothesized, among other things, that players might be valuing the opt-out and flexibility it brings more than teams valued it, or that players were just flat out overvaluing the opt-out, or both. It felt right; it felt like it made sense.

Boston needed to clear salary and a rotation logjam. Philadelphia needed veteran pitching help. And so Clay Buchholz is on the move.

Boston tries to replace David Ortiz with defense, Seattle adds more depth on the cheap, and Arizona gets bang for its bullpen buck.

Another offseason spent beefing up the bullpen in Boston, this time with Tyler Thornburg.

Cleveland swept Boston out of the playoffs in David Ortiz's final game.

It's not hard to see that the postseason magnifies every little thing, including your mistakes. Sure, it glorifies your successes, but for every pitch that kinda sorta seems down the middle, you'll get a thousand exasperated sighs in response, and unless you're an all-time great, people will remember your mistakes, your missteps, and your blunders. To this end, baseball is not a fair game.

David Price had another rough postseason start, putting the Red Sox on the brink of elimination.

Playoff Prospectus: PECOTA Odds and ALDS Game 2 Previews

J.A. Happ vs. Yu Darvish in Texas and David Price vs. Corey Kluber in Cleveland.

Texas looks to bounce back from a Game 1 shellacking with their second ace, right-hander Yu Darvish, on the mound. Toronto looks to bring a commanding 2-0 lead back home and try to finish the series Sunday.

Terry Francona went to his big bullpen guns early and the Indians took a 1-0 lead over the Red Sox.

It's easy to make too much of a single move in a postseason game. Taking a pitcher out one batter too late or sending a runner home on a long fly can have huge consequences. But if we step back and breathe deeply, we know a baseball game is too long, with too many moving parts, to ever truly be decided by any single event. Still, Thursday evening’s Red Sox-Indians game, the first of a five-game set, offered an easily graspable handle for those looking to turn that narrative crank.

Game 1 for Blue Jays-Rangers and Red Sox-Indians.

If you believe the earnest quotes of every Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays player or coach, there won’t be a basebrawl during this series because everyone very much wants to play baseball and win baseball games. We’ll see how long that decision actually stands, though.

Mookie Betts demonstrates the folly of capping what a player might do.

On June 29th 2014, the Red Sox announced that they would be calling up 21-year-old Mookie Betts, whom they had taken three years earlier with their fifth-round pick in the 2011 draft. As excited as I was see Betts attempt to live up to expectations—at the time, he’d been hitting .346/.431/.529 in a season split between Double- and Triple-A—I was even more excited to make bad Mookie Blaylock jokes on Twitter. Truthfully, I just didn’t expect the Betts hype train to ever arrive at its final destination.
