What You Need to Know: The Killer Cs

4

Chris Mosch

Cole Hamels pitches well, Cody Asche flashes leather, and Chase Utley whacks a walkoff homer, plus more from Thursday and previews for the weekend.

The Thursday Takeaway
The Phillies squandered opportunity after opportunity to send the Citizens Bank crowd home happy during extra innings on Thursday night. But after a slew of remarkable defensive plays by Cody Asche and a 14th-inning stretch, Chase Utley finished off the Marlins in walk-off fashion.

Cole Hamels took the hill for the Phillies and fired seven strong innings, with his only blemishes coming in the form of solo home runs. The southpaw fanned seven and issued no walks while notching 10 swings-and-misses with his changeup for the second straight game.

My Model Portfolio: Clayton Kershaw Leads the Way

1

Craig Goldstein

The Dodgers' ace is the priciest player on Craig's Roto dream team.

On Friday, Mike Gianella released his latest mixed league Bid Limits, which spurred an idea from Bret Sayre called Model Portfolios, wherein the fantasy staff (and anyone else on the BP roster who wants to participate) will create their own team within the confines of a standard 23-man, $260 budget. The roster being constructed includes: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OFx5, UTx2, and Px9 along with the following standards issued by Sayre:

Fantasy Team Preview: Philadelphia Phillies

5

Mike Gianella

This aging club has some intriguing players, but many of them carry significant injury risk.

It’s easy and fun to make jokes about how old the Phillies are, but the team’s advanced age curve does have an impact from a fantasy perspective. Nine players on the team’s projected Opening Day roster are 33 years of age or older. Post-peak players aren’t worthless and certainly can provide fantasy value. However, discounts have to be built in for potential injuries and breakdowns, especially in deeper leagues where good replacement level players are harder to find. The Phillies are becoming a Bermuda Triangle in fantasy: a lot of players are worth owning, but the risk factor here is high in many cases.

Projected Lineup

Fantasy Players to Target: Second Basemen

13

Baseball Prospectus

A look at the value picks at the keystone for your drafts and auctions this spring.

Once viewed as one of fantasy’s most shallow positions, second base has enjoyed a multi-year run as a fantasy-friendlier position thanks to a mix of established stars and new young talent creeping into the game. That’s reflected in the staff choices below, as a nice mix of players young and old comprise this collection of second baseman we think you should target in 2014.

Matt Carpenter, Cardinals
Matt Carptenter is an interesting case in that he's likely to regress some next year but I doubt that his numbers will fall off drastically enough to drop him below guys like Ben Zobrist and Ian Kinsler in 2B rankings. I doubt he scores 126 runs again but Carpenter holds a very solid 10 percent walk rate and he did put up 73 extra-base hits in 2013. The lineup behind him is very solid as well, and he has the opportunity to tease 100 runs scored again. He's not above Cano, Pedroia, or Kipnis, but he should be a very valuable 2B again this year. —Mauricio Rubio

What You Need to Know: The Will to Walk-Off Win

0

Daniel Rathman

The Rangers weren't sure whether to be buyers or sellers, but things are looking up for Texas after three straight walk-off wins.

The Wednesday Takeaway
If you’re going to claw back into a division race, you might as well do it in style. And after their general manager fell short in his 11th-hour bid to upgrade his lineup, the Rangers made their boss look good for the third night in a row.

Ron Washington’s club came into the week six games behind the first-place Athletics in the American League West, a shaky position that apparently left Daniels and the front office wavering on their deadline plans. With the threat of a 50-game suspension for Nelson Cruz hanging over their team, Daniels turned over many a stone in search of a power hitter who could approximate the right fielder’s production. But he was unable to pry either Jose Bautista or Edwin Encarnacion from the Blue Jays and opted to stand pat following the acquisition of Matt Garza from the Cubs earlier last month, perhaps reassured by the news that Cruz intends to appeal his ban.

Skewed Left: Explaining Chase Utley's Stolen Base Success

3

Zachary Levine

How did Chase Utley become the best percentage basestealer in baseball?

To understand why Chase Utley, a man who is not very fast or really much of a base-stealer at all, stands alone as the most efficient base-stealer in modern baseball history, you have to look a little bit farther down.

Not much farther down, usually just a spot or occasionally two in the Phillies order. Stop when you get to Ryan Howard. The big first baseman, not any left-hander’s pickoff move or any right arm behind the plate, has been the biggest deterrent to Utley’s steals.

Paul Maholm assumes the mantle of the sub-60-mph strike.

Last season, there were 21 called strikes thrown slower than 60 miles per hour. Nineteen of them were eephus pitches by Vicente Padilla, and the other two were slow curves by Randy Wolf. Padilla is now pitching for the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, and Wolf will spend the whole season recovering from October Tommy John surgery. So we wondered—those of us who wonder about these things—who would take up the mantle of the under-60-mph strike thrower in 2013.

A middle round in 1999 has produced nearly as many WARP as the first round in 2000. Can it continue?

In 1999, 30 major-league teams drafted 30 players in the 13th round of the first-year player draft. Those 30 players have, to date, produced 91.2 WARP

Out of Left Field: The Worst Baseball Discussions We Have

27

Matthew Kory

It happens every spring: we talk way too much about reserve outfielders.

Just before spring training ended, an email arrived from two friends of mine. They’re both Philadelphia Phillies fans. As you are likely aware, the Phillies have the greatest starting pitching staff in the history of ever, but they aren’t without problems elsewhere. Ryan Howard’s recovery from a ruptured Achilles and Chase Utley’s on-going knee injuries have ripped the heart out of an offense that was once the National League’s best. Their stranglehold on the NL East is now in doubt.

None of that was discussed in the email. Neither was Jonathan Papelbon’s ridiculous contract, or the disintegration of the farm system, or the aging nucleus, or even Charlie Manuel, possibly the funniest manager in baseball history. Nope, none of that.
