Rumor Roundup: AL Rotation Rumblings

0

Daniel Rathman

The Indians seek to extend Justin Masterson, and the Rangers try to replace Derek Holland.

Indians expect to discuss long-term pact with Justin Masterson
With more than five years of service time under his belt, Justin Masterson has one more year of arbitration eligibility left before his first chance to hit the open market. The 28-year-old right-hander took home about $5.7 million in 2013, when he forwent his hearing by agreeing to that salary on January 18, and the Tribe is once again hoping to come to terms with his agent, Randy Rowley.

Umpires shouldn't settle for "close enough" when it comes to perfection.

The Weekend Takeaway
Did he go? That was the question percolating through every baseball fan’s mind after the White Sox’ Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in major-league history against the Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

Brendan Ryan, who pinch-hit for Munenori Kawasaki, worked the count full, fouled off Humber’s first payoff pitch, and then either swung or did not swing at a slider that broke well off the plate outside. But did he go?

Preseason Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 3/15/12

Holland, Bailey, Volstad, and Dempster crack this week's VP list

With another week of camp under our belts, we’re beginning to see some data from Florida and Arizona. As always, the results themselves are all but meaningless, though the way in which they were achieved can sometimes bring up interesting discussion points. Here are four starting pitchers who may be intriguing for various reasons on Draft Day….

Chris Volstad | SP | Chicago Cubs
Mixed: $-9 | NL-only: $-1 |
PECOTA SP Rank: 148 | SP ADP: 141

With the Rangers reeling from a Pujolsian pounding, young lefty Derek Holland helped right the ship in Game Four.

On Saturday night, Albert Pujols put together the best single-game offensive performance in World Series history as the Cardinals piled up 16 runs against the Rangers. On Sunday night, Pujols and friends couldn't buy a run and could scarcely collect a hit. The eight St. Louis batters besides Lance Berkman combined to go 0-for-25 as Derek Holland and Neftali Feliz combined on a two-hit shutout. Backed by Josh Hamilton's first extra-base hit of the Series and a three-run homer by Mike Napoli, the Rangers evened things up at two games apiece with a 4-0 win.

Playoff Prospectus: ALCS Game Two: A Grand Opportunity

10

R.J. Anderson

Though the Tigers were able to chase the Rangers' Derek Holland early, it was the Rangers that went home happy.

They say good things come to those that wait, and that idiom was at least half-right on Monday night. With Game Two delayed by 20 hours due to the rain that never fell, the news cycle morphed into a discussion about which team would benefit the most from an impromptu rest day. The early returns varied, but the answer became clear by nightfall.

World Series Prospectus: Game Two Report

11

John Perrotto

The Rangers' bullpen implodes and the Giants get a step closer to an elusive world championship.

SAN FRANCISCO—Relief pitchers have a special bond. Not only do they belong to the same team, but they are also a team within a team. In most ballparks, they spend the game apart from their teammates, often sitting as far as 450 feet away from the dugout.

Playoff Prospectus: Fear and Loathing from the Cheap Seats

1

Jay Jaffe

The defending champion Yankees bumble and stumble their way to the brink of elimination.

Decades ago, while calling a University of Utah football game from a blizzard in Laramie, Wyoming, the great Utah sportscaster Bill Marcroft described the scene: "It's not the end of the world, but I can see it from here." That's exactly how I felt from my seat in Yankee Stadium's Section 431A, Row 12 on Tuesday night, perched high enough to see the top of the left field foul pole, far enough from home plate to test the limits of corrective lenses, yet all too close to the ugly late-inning implosion which pushed the 95-win defending world champions to the brink of elimination from the ALCS at the hands of the upstart Rangers.

Bio: I'm a sophomore at Tufts University. I write a weekly column for The Baseball Analysts and am an editor and columnist for the school daily newspaper. I'm the president of the Baseball Analysis at Tufts club and the Tufts Table Tennis club. Frankly, I don't really think I should win BP Idol. I know there are better writers out there who are submitting entries, and all I've got on them as that my love of baseball is at least equal to theirs. But I've got nothing to lose, so here goes.
