Value Picks: Outfielders for 5/18/12

2

Rob McQuown

Speedsters are the theme of this week's outfield VP with Revere and Brantley joining the crew.

Despite booting Dayan Viciedo and his .381 week with two home runs, the Value Picks outfielders hit a composite .295/.390/.477 this past week with five home runs and five stolen bases. With the three leadoff hitters combining for two runs batted in (neither Jarrod Dyson nor Denard Span had any), the group still managed 18 RBI while scoring 28 runs. Obviously, results may vary from week to week, but this is the sort of “found money” that can be realized when Value Picks work out.

Value Picks: Outfielders for 5/11/12

6

Rob McQuown

Ibanez, Reddick, and Dyson get the VP label this week

There was a common perception that Jayson Werth is injury prone, but he went almost four years between stints on the disabled list (his previous being May 23, 2008). His loss hurts fantasy owners, though not nearly as much as it is likely to hurt the on-base-challenged Nationals. Meanwhile, mixed-league afterthought Rick Ankiel becomes a much better risk; the team really needs his power, even if he brings little else to the table offensively. In the fantasy realm, however, owners can do a lot better when searching for a replacement in most league formats, which is where Value Picks comes in...

Prospectus Hit and Run: The Vortices of Suck, Part II

8

Jay Jaffe

Which outfielders and DHs proved to be the biggest black holes in the majors?

Picking up where I left off on Friday, we continue hunting the fish at the bottom of the major-league barrel in search of the positions where teams got the worst production—worse than the Replacement-Level Killers, but without the burden of toiling for a contending team. As with their catching and infield brethren, the following players helped produce tornado-level disasters amid their lineups, often at salaries that represented far more than just soft breezes running through their teams’ bank accounts. These are the Vortices of Suck.

On the Beat: Degree of Difficulties

12

John Perrotto

Foot-in-mouth in the Twin Cities, the Padres pray for monetary salvation, the Mets shrug it off, and news and notes from around the major leagues.

The speed at which baseball news travels and creates the potential for controversy never ceases to amaze. Even comments made at an agricultural trade show in North Dakota can generate headlines in a matter of moments.

Kevin Goldstein and Joe Sheehan

There are points to be made for both teams, as Joe and Kevin point out, but they draw very different conclusions about who came out ahead.

Speaking for the Rays, Joe Sheehan:

In their first aggressive attempt to streamline their collection of talent, the Tampa Bay Rays pulled off a stunner yesterday, dealing away 2003's number one overall draft pick, Delmon Young, and two other players to the Minnesota Twins for Matt Garza, Jason Bartlett, and a pitching prospect.

It's time to announce the winners of the 16th annual Internet Baseball Awards. More than 1,400 baseball fans from cyberspace participated in this effort to honor those players and managers whose performance in 2007 were most deserving.

There's a rising favorite in the AL Central, as our experts weigh in on everything from division winners to Matsuzaka's line.

Our annual predictions arrive this year as our Hope and Faith series comes to an end. While the beauty of spring training is that every team can think it has a chance, somebody has to take the losses. For today, we concentrate on the division standings and the major player awards (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American League. Tomorrow we'll conclude with the National League predictions, along with the staff picks for the World Series.

Each author's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-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. A slight shift at the bottom of the AL East rankings, a rising favorite in the AL Central, and anarchy in the AL West highlight our staff's guesses.

Lies, Damned Lies: PECOTA Takes on Corner Outfield Prospects

0

Nate Silver

Last time out, Nate zeroed in on center fielders. Today, he moves to the corners.

1. Delmon Young, Devil Rays (21) 135.2 2. Billy Butler, Royals (21) 125.9 3. Jay Bruce, Reds (20) 118.1 Delmon Young is the best corner outfield prospect in baseball. There isn't much debate about that. The question is where he fits into the overall picture. Kevin Goldstein and Baseball America each have him rated at #3, whereas PECOTA thinks he's more in the range of #15.

Kevin chimes in on the Delmon Young controversy with some thoughts on the incident itself, and propses an appropriate penalty.

For a while on Wednesday evening, the story spread like the old children's game of telephone. I was initially told that Delmon Young threw a bat and hit the home plate umpire in the mid-section. Another version had Young throwing his bat down, only to have it bounce back up and hit the ump in the leg. While the initial AP story cleared things up a bit, it still wasn't exactly clear just what happened. Something bad had occurred, but I was still unsure of exactly how bad it was.

BP staffers work their magic and offer their predictions for the American League this season.

When BP welcomes new contributors, we like to test them right away--usually by demanding that they take out their crystal ball. Yes, it's time to wrap up the off-season by predicting what things will look like at the conclusion of the 2006 season.

In part one of this two-part series, we focus on the American League, concentrating on the division standings and the major player awards (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year). Tomorrow we'll conclude with the National League predictions, along with the staff picks for the World Series representatives.

Prospectus Roundtable: Top 50 Prospects, Part III

0

Baseball Prospectus

Jeremy Reed had the best year of any player in the minors last year and has a very high probability of being an excellent player. I think a top-five ranking would be a just reward, and consistent with our emphasis on performance rather than tools. I absolutely do not understand why Reed would rank below Alexis Rios. He is Rios' equal in every attribute except for plate discipline, where he has a substantial advantage, and his PECOTA profile is considerably better. I don't think a couple of good weeks in Puerto Rico are enough to overcome that. Weeks is a stud and I think the objections to him are a bit overstated. I would like to get a scouting report or two on his defense, since his numbers were quite bad. I'm also not on board with the fear of ranking pitching prospects highly, though I'm sure there will be advocates for the opposite point of view. I think the *top* tier of pitching prospects is unusually good this year as compared with the top tier of hitting prospects, and I think we should make adjustments accordingly. If you want to get a bit more analytical about it, I don't think it's a matter of our overrating the risk associated with pitching prospects so much as it is our *underrating* the risk associated with offensive prospects, especially offensive prospects who have yet to reach Double-A. I like Marte a lot, and he has no real negatives, but placing him as high as #2 implies a scouting judgment of sorts; his numbers were good, but not overwhelming.
