Out of Left Field: Bobby Valentine's Communications Problem

11

Matthew Kory

Well, sure, these conversations explain everything.

It’s no secret that there have been some problems with the Red Sox recently. Or, if it is a secret, whoops. Sorry. Cat’s out of the bag. So now you know if you didn’t already. There are issues in Red Sox land. Some have regarded those issues as holdovers from last season when things turned bad like cheese left out during a month long vacay to Maui. To others, the peculiar peccadilloes of this particular… uh, season, can be traced back to once single source: manager Bobby Valentine.

Valentine took over the team from Terry Francona, who was adept at handing the personal interaction side of managing in Boston. He was good with the players, he was good with the press. But those strengths belied a laissez faire attitude that permeated the Red Sox clubhouse, an attitude that some say led to the team’s downfall last September. That and also some incredibly awful baseball.

Before we can talk about what the Red Sox can do, we must figure out what the Red Sox are.

By July 31st,  teams usually have a good sense of how their season is going. Some are doing well. Some aren’t. In either case that certainty, unwelcome as it may be in the latter case, makes decisions easier. First place teams are “buyers,” last place teams are sellers. As a GM you know that it’s time to bolster the major-league roster, or conversely, that it’s just not happening this year. Time to sell off some pieces and live to fight another year. Things are easy when it’s that simple.

It gets stickier when teams are in between those extremes. This is a land where cogent arguments for both buying and selling exist. You could even argue coherently for doing nothing and not be burned at the stake. Mostly though, it’s a dangerous land, one where the wrong decisions can haunt a franchise for years.

Can Gameday's newest feature teach us anything about the game?

Those of you who follow baseball via the computer—and unless your secretary printed this piece out for you I assume that description fits everyone reading—have probably encountered MLB.com’s Gameday feature. It’s the ingenious little program that tracks each pitch in real time and allows you to follow the action without actually seeing the action.

I’m not sure exactly when Gameday was launched, but I remember using it back in 2000. Gameday has made a lot of improvements since then. When it started, Gameday was a very simple application that wasn’t much more than a moving box score. It looked like this:

On the Beat: Short People Got Reason

6

John Perrotto

An epic year for little big men, trusting the mission to Hal's care, and rumors and rumblings from around the major leagues.

When Randy Newman sang "short people have no reason to live" in his campy 1977 pop hit "Short People," he had it all wrong. Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia offered proof this past week that short people have a place in the major leagues, just as Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum had the week before. Pedroia, who is 5'9" tall, won the American League Most Valuable Player award just one year after being named the AL Rookie of the Year, becoming only the third player to win the ROY and MVP awards in consecutive seasons, joining Cal Ripken Jr. (1982-83 with the Orioles) and Ryan Howard (2005-06 with the Phillies).

It's time to announce the winners of the 17th 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 2008 were most deserving.

Fresh off a credible World Series MVP case, let's take a look back at Pedroia's rookie season to see what might be in store in the future.

Now that Dustin Pedroia's rookie season is officially over with the conclusion of the World Series Sunday night, it's time to take a look back at what went right for him this year, as well as what we can expect from the young second baseman going forward.

Playoff Prospectus: World Series Game One Report

John Perrotto

One game in, can we say who has the "big mo?" Some Red Sox players disagree, while the Rockies roll with it.

BOSTON-Dustin Pedroia shied away from using the word momentum. The travel-size rookie second baseman has been the igniter of the Boston Red Sox's offense through an unprecedented postseason stretch, helping it put double digits on the scoreboard in three straight playoff games. Not even the 1927 New York Yankees can make that claim.

Nate comes to the end of his prospect review by naming his Top 100 and combining his valuations with those of our own Kevin Goldstein.

Lies, Damned Lies: PECOTA Takes on Second Base Prospects

0

Nate Silver

Nate examines the curious discrepancy between conventional prospect rankings and PECOTA with regards to second basemen, and defends one of his projection system's favorite young players.

PECOTA sings a far more optimistic tune when it comes to second basemen. Kendrick was its #1 overall prospect last year, Dustin Pedroia was #4, and Barfield and Ian Kinsler ranked 13th and 14th, respectively. Second basemen don't do quite as well this year, but Pedroia is back, and joined by several other players who are sure to be ranked higher by PECOTA than by most other systems.
