Prospectus Today: Relief in the Mountains

Joe Sheehan

The Rockies' bullpen is one reason why Joe had them finishing last in the NL West this year. Does a closer look change that assessment?

When I slotted the Rockies at #24 in my preseason Top 30, it was in part because I'm not that confident in their bullpen. Since then, I've had a back-and-forth with a Rockies staffer over that assessment, and figured it was worth going into greater depth about the matter in a column. I had actually intended to write about the Rockies last month, but Tracy Ringolsby's Hope and Faith piece broke down the team so well that I hesitated to follow it.

Some teams do temporary solutions better than others, but trying to replace Albert Pujols or Gary Sheffield is no small feat.

Having employed both Mark Huismann and Rick Huisman, you might suspect that the Royals have a thing for Huismenschen now that they have Justin in the organization. The hope here is that Justin survives what I call the Butthole Surfers Leap of Faith: Skip past the name, and enjoy what you get. Just because the previous pair of guys might make the Royals or their fans a bit squeamish, Justin Huisman can pitch in this man's league. Believe me, I have the same feeling about the name 'Codiroli,' and I'm sure if there's ever a non-Chris named Codiroli who winds up pitching for the A's, I'll have to make the same leap. In the meantime, I get to spout off.

Prospectus Today: Lock and Load

Theo Epstein won't get much sleep this week, but whatever shut-eye he does grab is going to be very, very good. Epstein, who rode out four months of small-minded teasing about his age, followed by two months of ridicule as the initial implementation of the non-closer-centric bullpen went sour, has positioned the Red Sox to be the AL's most dangerous team down the stretch of his first year as GM. Yesterday's acquisition of Scott Williamson from the Reds might complete the roster, and it fills out the bullpen with the second of three pitchers best-suited to make this type of pen work. One of the others is Byung-Hyun Kim, who Epstein acquired two months ago for the extra third baseman he had lying around in Shea Hillenbrand. (The other is Octavio Dotel.) The turnaround is stunning. For a modest cost, the Red Sox have not only picked up the two puzzle pieces that make their entire plan work, but they've upgraded their bullpen from a collection of high-risk, high-reward question marks to perhaps the game's best. In addition to right-handers Kim and Williamson, the Sox have two effective lefties in Alan Embree and Scott Sauerbeck. And after a season of seeing more than a dozen pitchers post negative ARPs, the Sox go into the last two months with the following relievers...

ANAHEIM ANGELS Acquired OF-R Alex Ochoa and C-R Sal Fasano from the Brewers for C-L Jorge Fabregas and two PTBNLs. [7/31] This was an elegant, if low-key, solution to the Angels' need for some hitting help, depending of course on the likelihood that neither of the PTBNLs are significant prospects. Those odds are pretty low, since the Angels don't have that many significant prospects in the first place, and they did only get a couple of journeymen. To purge Jorge Fabregas from the roster is a happy development in itself, and beyond that, they get the fourth outfielder they need and a third catcher who makes for a viable option to either of the Molina brothers.
