Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 6/12/12

3

Michael Street

Michael sweeps four VPs off the list while bringing in two Rockies and two hot-hitting first base call-ups.

Being a fantasy owner requires balancing three P’s: production, playing time, and the patience to see if a hitter will improve the former after an increase in the latter. This week, I’m losing my patience with two hitters while sticking by another one who’s about to get more playing time. Owners without my patience can find other options in another set of P’s—the Playing Pepper section—but you can find some fantasy value in any of this week’s players, which is our goal here at Value Picks.

The tater trots for May 10: a couple of fantastic first-career home runs, a typical Papi trot, and a handful of quick trots highlighted by Martin Prado.

We've had so many days recently of only fifteen or twenty home runs hit around the league that I forgot what a real day's worth of home runs looks like. There were thirty hit throughout the league on Tuesday, though. And while that's far from the most we've had on a single day this year, it's certainly more along the lines of what we should expect. But I'm not complaining - it was a fun night for home runs!

Fantasy Beat: Tout Wars FAAB Update, 5/2

0

Jason Collette

There was plenty of shuffling around on the waiver wire this week, especially for NL clubs in search of a new third baseman.

Domonic Brown is back, and then is immediately sent to Triple-A. Pablo Sandoval incurs the same injury Brown had, and now we finally know what is wrong with Ryan Zimmerman. Ben Zobrist does in one day what Hanley Ramirez has barely done all season and Dustin Moseley’s deal with the devil continues (although apparently he forgot to include run support in those negotiations). In all, it was just another crazy week in the Tout Wars leagues.

On the Beat: Cooper's Optimism

27

John Perrotto

The Astros' manager knows that he has a veteran team in need of special management, and is confident--in defiance of PECOTA--that it can contend

It seems as if Cecil Cooper isn't sure what to make of having the oldest roster in the major leagues. On one hand, the Astros' manager worries if his team's 4-7 start might be a sign that his team is too old. "You don't expect a veteran team to start off this slowly," Cooper said. "You expect that more from a younger team still trying to get its feet on the ground."

On the Beat: Changing Their Rays

5

John Perrotto

The new power of the AL East doesn't sit still, myriad dissatisfactions in the NL Central, plus news from around the leagues.

The Rays knew that things would never be quite the same when they walked out into the cold Philadelphia night air last October after losing Game Five of the World Series to the Phillies. They had lost the Devil from their name prior to last season, and shed their reputation as a bumbling, stumbling franchise during the season by winning 97 games and the American League East title. They then beat the White Sox and Red Sox in the AL playoffs before their remarkable story ended in a World Series loss to the Phillies. "I told our guys on the first day of spring training that things would be different now," said Rays manager Joe Maddon. "I told them we would be looked at in a different light."

Toronto has a thin overall selection of promising talent, but there are a few big boppers on the way.

Prospectus Q&A: Dick Scott

0

David Laurila

A conversation with the Blue Jays' director of player development on the state of his team's farm system.

A lot of talent is developing within the Blue Jays' farm system. Under the direction of Dick Scott, the system has recently graduated promising young players like Travis Snider, Adam Lind, and Jesse Litsch to the big leagues, and others, like catcher J.P. Arencibia and pitcher Brett Cecil, are on their way. Scott, the team's director of player development since 2001, talked about Toronto's development philosophy and some of top prospects in the organization at the Granite State Baseball Dinner in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Every Given Sunday: Big Apple Scramble

0

John Perrotto

The Mets wrestle with their options down the stretch, the Astros don't stop believing, and news from around the majors.

For those who do not believe that things can change in a hurry in baseball, we present the New York Mets. The Mets were in a full-fledged panic at the beginning of the week when they dropped an ugly 7-5 decision to the Pirates at Shea Stadium. The Mets had led 5-1 after six innings, and then watched their bullpen (sans injured closer Billy Wagner) give up three runs in the seventh inning and three more in the ninth. A day later, interim manager Jerry Manuel said he would seriously consider resorting to drastic measures by moving one of his starting pitchers (left-hander Oliver Perez or right-handers John Maine and Mike Pelfrey) to the pen to serve as the interim closer, and subsequently as the primary set-up man once Wagner returned. "It's a pennant race, and you do everything you can to stay in a pennant race," Manuel said.

Every Given Sunday: Tribe Success, and Its Duplication

0

John Perrotto

Having wooed him away from the AL Central champs, the Pirates and new GM Neal Huntington are hoping to recreate the success of the Indians.

The Cleveland Indians participated in a time-honored, albeit goofy, ritual throughout the regular season. The Indians would notch another win at Jacobs Field in their final at bat and the game's hero would inevitable find himself being interviewed on live television. And while he was answering questions about his big hit, without fail one or more teammates would slam a whipped cream pie into his face. Then, when the Indians clinched the American League Central title last Sunday, there were more pies flying around their clubhouse in Jacobs Field than in a Three Stooges episode.
