Transaction Analysis Special

Christina Kahrl

Christina returns to cover the swaps and the shake-ups.

Cunningham was one of the better position player prospects in the White Sox chain, so getting him for something of an organizational-filler type represents a minor coup for the Snakes. Richar isn't worthless, but he also isn't gifted with a lot of star potential, not in a system that stole Alberto Callaspo from the Angels and which also has to figure out Mark Reynolds' eventual infield home. They're already into the range of having to ask themselves what benefit there is to offering Orlando Hudson arbitration this winter, or whether they might not be better off non-tendering or dealing him, so even though Richar was already up to Triple-A, he wasn't gifted with a great future within the organization. In contrast, Cunningham could end up hitting his way into an already-talented future-minded outfield with Chris B. Young, Carlos Quentin, Carlos Gonzalez and Justin Upton. Quality outfielders can end up paying off in spades, and if Cunningham develops beyond being "just" an exceptionally disciplined hitter who delivers base hits and generates walks, he'll end up making the White Sox look really bad.

That said, the question is whether he'll develop or not. He's only 21 and already in High-A, and hitting .294/.376/.476 in the Carolina League is really promising. However, it doesn't involve a lot of doubles--which might project to more damage as he fills out--nor does it involve a lot of homers, so while he's patient enough to draw walks in 11 percent of his PA this year, and relatively quick (stealing 22 bags in 30 attempts), he's also a non-center fielder with offensive skills that must improve if his bat is going to play in a corner in the big leagues. It's sort of the same quandary the Sox faced when they had Jeff Abbott coming up; minor-league hitting machines are all well and good, but what do you do with them if they can't consistently slug better than .450 in the big leagues? It's worthwhile to invest in finding out if Cunningham can beat that rap, especially considering his age, and also considering what the Snakes had to give up to get him. All told, another nifty deal pulled off by Josh Byrnes.

The Reds and A's make an intriguing swap, the Astros call up a highly-touted rookie to battle Tal's Hill, and the Cubs stick a Cherry on top of their bullpen in this week's Transaction Analysis.

Full predictions and ballots for the senior circuit, plus who might be on their way to winning it all.

Yesterday we started our predictions miniseries with a look at the American League. Opening Day means that it's time for our National League and World Series picks.

Each author's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division, plus the results of our preseason MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting. Coming off of their win on the season's inaugural night, BP likes the Mets to take the NL East again, and sees a three-team horse race in the Central.

Before all the IBA ballots are counted, staff picks give a hint as to what hands the awards may find themselves in.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Travis Hafner posted the highest OBP in the AL while nobody noticed, while Neifi Perez ended up getting playoff PT. The young guns had their day and then some. Jermaine Dye gave a lengthy spanking to his 90th percentile PECOTA projection (PECOTA's .288/.359/.516 versus an actual .315/.385/.622). The crop of AL rookies included a guy with a 0.92 ERA finishing third, and rooks like Jered Weaver (105:33 K:BB) and Francisco Liriano (144:32) threatening to be Johan Santana's biggest challengers in 2007. The National League featured tighter races, including a four-way brawl for the Pitcher of the Year and another impressive crop of newbies.

Eight staff members weighed in on the season that was, casting their ballots for the Internet Baseball Awards. We summarized their findings below, and then let them have their individual say.
