Even the least entertaining game of last season contained 15 interesting moments.

I took a film class in college (ladies) where the professor told us that the most important shot in any movie is the first. That shot, he said, should tell us everything important about the protagonist’s conflict. This is the first shot of the Tigers/Giants broadcast of July 2, 2011:

A writer who never saw Jack Morris pitch watches him in action for the first time and comes away even less convinced that the traditionalist case for his candidacy should earn him a call to Cooperstown.

Playoff Prospectus: ALCS Game Four: Lineup Mismanagement

4

Derek Carty

Jim Leyland's habit of tossing out a new lineup every day may be costing the Tigers in the playoffs.

In last night’s ALCS Game Four against the Rangers, Tigers manager Jim Leyland trotted out his eighth different lineup in eight playoff games. I’ve never quite understood why some managers change their lineups so frequently, and while you could give Leyland a pass for the postseason based on the injuries his team has been dealt—Magglio Ordonez and Delmon Young—Leyland was one of the game’s greatest offenders during the regular season too, filling out his lineup card 127 different ways through 162 regular-season games.

Prospectus Q&A: Don Kelly

1

David Laurila

Though the versatile fielder isn't a star, he brings more than just defensive flexibility to the table.

Don Kelly may well be the most valuable spare part in the American League. Reminiscent of Tony Phillips, the Tigers super-utilityman provides excellent versatility to Detroit’s roster, having seen time at seven different positions in his brief big-league career. He is expected to add an eighth this summer, and it is that versatility that makes him an asset. Since breaking in with the Pirates in 2007, Kelly has appeared in 84 games in left field, 30 at first base, 19 at third base, 12 in center field, five in both right field and shortstop, and four at second base.

Lima Time as a standard for evaluation, reinforcing the Red Sox, the Tigers slip by an Inge, and more.

Using a pitcher's rate of SNLVAR, Kazmir's season has been a disaster of massive proportions, one that rates about 4.8 on the Keough scale, something that for the moment suits my purposes for describing starting pitcher inadequacy, using Matt Keough's appalling 1982 season as a baseline for starting pitcher-related terrors visited upon a team's unhappy fans over a full season. This isn't really especially fair of me, in that Keough doesn't hold the single-season low for a starter with 30 starts in a campaign, but 1982 was a horrifying disappointment, and the man was beaten with a regularity that made me think that he was the drum, and the entire American League was Keith Moon.

On the Beat: Pre-Winter Meetings Shopping Lists

9

John Perrotto

'Tis the season for who needs what at what price, and poor-mouthing high and low, as the industry heads for Indy.

INDIANAPOLIS-Since it's the time of year to make a list and check it twice, all 30 major-league general managers are in the spirit. Not the spirit of the holidays, but the spirit of baseball's annual Winter Meetings, which begin here Monday. As GMs begin to converge on Indy today, all of them have wish lists, some longer than others. In order to fill those lists, though, they might have to give something up in return. With that in mind, here is a look at where all 30 teams stand on the eve of the winter meetings:

Two of Cleveland's young prospects sit down to talk about their relationship, changing organizations, and working the strike zone.

Few relationships in the game of baseball are more important than that which exists between a catcher and a pitcher, and for the Indians' Lou Marson and David Huff, theirs began in September when they became teammates for the first time. Huff, a 25-year-old left-hander who was the Tribe's first-round pick in the 2006 draft, was already in Cleveland, having made his big-league debut in May. Marson, a highly regarded 23-year-old catcher, joined the team from Triple-A Columbus just over a month after being acquired in the six-player deal that sent Cliff Lee to the Phillies in late July. Huff and Marson sat down with BP on the final weekend of the season to discuss not only their respective games, but also to learn more about each other.

On the Beat: Futures Game Recap

3

John Perrotto

The extended delay in play didn't mean that feats from the Red Sox's Casey Kelly and the other top prospects didn't bear watching.

St. LOUIS-The one inning of relief was effective, though quite unremarkable. Yet, that perfect top of the sixth thrown by Red Sox prospect Casey Kelly for the United States team in its 7-5 loss to the World on a waterlogged Sunday afternoon at the All-Star Futures Game at Busch Stadium might be one to remember. After all, it could conceivably be the last professional inning the 19-year-old ever pitches.

The Rangers' Director of Player Development discusses the system's young talent and the organization's new directions.

There is more than a lone star in the making on the Texas farm. Thanks to an aggressive and well-executed commitment to scouting and player development, the Rangers now possess what is arguably the deepest stable of young talent in the game. Much of the credit goes to general manager Jon Daniels, but no less important are the contributions of Scott Servais, the team's Director of Player Development. Servais, who has been in his current role since December 2005, discussed the organization's philosophy, and some of the most promising players under his watch.
