Early-season moves have featured their share of funkiness, writes Chris Kahrl.

Transaction Analysis: The Wests, etc.

Christina Kahrl

Chris Kahrl closes out the offseason with a wrap-up of the Wests, plus a quick rundown of the rest of baseball.

The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe.

Darin Erstad hits the DL, improving the Angels almost immediately. Losing Alex Gonzalez might have some ill-effects on the Cubs. Angel Berroa is signed to a four-year deal, hopefully enticing Carlos Beltran to stick around. Joe Thurston gets his last shot to make a mark in Los Angeles. James Baldwin gets a shot with the Mets, for reasons we're not quite clear on. And losing Placido Polanco will, unfortunately, give Larry Bowa fewer roster options over the next couple weeks. All this and much more news from around the league in your Tuesday edition of Transaction Analysis.

The Diamondbacks left themselves thin in the outfield. The Royals' off-season moves could pay off in the standings. The Phillies need to get Chase Utley in the lineup. These and other news and notes out of Arizona, Kansas City, and Philadelphia in today's Prospectus Triple Play.

  • We're Using Battle in the Loosest Sense of the Word: You know spring training is coming to a close when starting pitchers are going five or six innings, top prospects are being sent down after their cursory taste of big league camp, and position battles are getting way too much hype, for the wrong reasons. For example, the last spot on the Diamondbacks' bench is coming down to the wire, with Donnie Sadler duking it out with Chad Tracy and Julio Ramirez. Pop quiz: Which team did Julio Ramirez play for last year? No cheating. Yeah, didn't think you knew that.

    Bobby Jenks: The next Goose Gossage? Bobby Estalella finds a job. Tony La Russa finds a new broken toy in Tony Womack. Syracuse could give the Devil Rays a good battle. These and other pontifications in today's jam-packed Transaction Analysis.

    Prospectus Roundtable: Top 50 Prospects, Part II

    0

    Baseball Prospectus

    Wright or Marte, Marte or Wright. I love 'em both. I've put Andy Marte ahead for the moment, because of the 10-month age difference and because scouts seem to like him a lot more, but I really feel strongly that David Wright's as complete a prospect as there is in the game. I'd love to hear comments comparing the two, and Nate, I'd love to see what their PECOTA comps look like. Nobody else is that impressive. Dallas McPherson put up some serious numbers last year, and while some of that was in The Hangar in Rancho Cucamonga, he hit .314/.426/.569 in Arkansas. He doesn't have a great defensive reputation, but it's not terrible either, and he clearly outhit everyone else on this list. I don't know if anyone else deserves Top 50 consideration. I know people love the Greek God of Walks, but he hit .165/.295/.248 in Triple-A, over a 32-game sample. Of course, his full-season OBP was still .446, so... Chad Tracy hit .324 and his defense took a big step forward, but he doesn't do much more than hit singles, and it was Tucson. I respect that he's had two good seasons in a row, but he was in El Paso in 2002, so I'm not sure that means anything either. And as much as I hyped him a year ago, I have to concede that Brendan Harris may not be quite as good as I thought he was. But he's still a better prospect than almost anyone gives him credit for.

    The Braves strike NRI gold with Russell Branyan. The Astros do what they need to do to compete in the NL Central. Everything you ever wanted to read about Eric Karros. The Padres address their chasm in center. These and other news, notes, and Kahrlisms in today's Transaction Analysis.

    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.

    The Snakes throw excessive money at a good citizen--again. The Orioles use an injury as the latest excuse to screw with John Stephens. The Tigers' pitching staff could be scary bad. And the Jays need health on their side if they're to benefit from the Wells and Hinske signings.

    Mark Quinn, Bruce Chen and Rob Bell still dishing out torment, Benny Agbayani peddling his Hawaiian Punch to the wrong team, Dan O'Dowd shopping Helton for an impulse control device to be named later, and the Dodgers messing with the wrong Alvarez.

    Howdy gang, nothing like spending five hours typing up the index for this year's edition of Baseball Prospectus to make me desperately hungry to dive right into playing catch-up on real-time baseball news. Yes, Transaction Analysis is long overdue, and for that I apologize, having spent the intervening time working with our writing team and the incomparably enthusiastic Jonah Keri to get this year's book out the door. If you can forgive me that, you'll also have to forgive me this temporary break from format, as I run down the most-notable moves made over the last couple of months, going by divisional pairs (Easts, Centrals, and Wests) to get caught up and resume your regularly scheduled TA mayhem by next week.
