Sporer Report: The 2014 First Round: A Look Ahead, Part One

3

Paul Sporer

Next year's draft season is still nine months away, but the lessons we've already learned this year could carry over.

We’re taking a break from my series on streaming hitters with sharp splits to discuss the future a bit. There is nothing in particular about this point in time that makes it worth discussing 2014 now. Most teams have played about 75 games, but I didn’t even know that before I planned this; again, the point in the season is irrelevant. It’s just something I like to do around the start of summer as the first check-in point.

As much as I love to enjoy the here and now of the season we’re in the throes of, I also like to look forward and see how the current season might be affecting the following spring’s drafts. We are about nine months from the 2014 draft season so a whole lot will change from now until then, but I guarantee that some of what we’ve seen thus far will stick and have a lasting impact on 2014. In fact, in part one of a two-part look at what we’ve learned (or think we’ve learned) thus far, we start with something that I’m certain will be true in March 2014.

Resident Fantasy Genius: The Ones We Got Right

4

Derek Carty

Derek begins reviewing his pre-season predictions, starting with the ones that made him (and you) look good.

At the end of every season, I find it useful to go back and examine the predictions I made.  What did I get right, and where did I go wrong?  Today I’m going to look at some of my biggest hits. For each player, I’ve listed his mixed and AL/NL-only auction value in Tout Wars and LABR (only Tout has a mixed auction, but AL/NL-only values are an average of Tout and LABR) as well as his actual value for the 2012 season according to Last Player Picked. And of course, in the interest of fairness, I will be going through the same exercise for my worst predictions too.  Also take note that I’ve excluded most of the “value picks” from my preseason tier articles, as they’ll get their own review article.

Edwin Encarnacion
Mixed:
$9/$32
AL-only: $17.5/$35

Resident Fantasy Genius: The 2012 Fantasy Fantasy Awards

17

Derek Carty

The fantasy team votes on the year's bests, worsts, and mosts.

With just three days left in the season, each member of the BP Fantasy team took the time to reflect on the year that was, casting their votes for a variety of categories. Today, I'll be handing out the fantasy fantasy hardware (that is, inconsequential awards for a derivative game). After seeing who we thought had the best, worst, and most interesting 2011 seasons, be sure to tell us who you think deserved some recognition in the comments section.

The tater trots for September 13: Edwin Encarnacion has 40 home runs, Josh Willingham has 34.

It was another sparse slate of games on Thursday, and this time the number of home runs hit matched it, as there were only ten home runs across the league. In fact, there were nearly as many amazing throwing plays around the majors as there were home runs, including this beautiful Yadier Molina throw, this nearly-as-beautiful toss from Erik Kratz, and this throw from Carlos Beltran that nailed Josh Beckett at first on what should have been a single.

Overthinking It: From Prospect to Project to Prominence

Ben Lindbergh

Ten players who took the long route from top prospect to major-league contributor this year.

With over a month remaining in the regular season, Mike Trout’s campaign already looks like it might be remembered as the best ever recorded by a rookie. But Trout’s 2012 may have another lasting legacy: spoiling future rookie seasons for the rest of us. While watching Trout run roughshod over opposing AL pitchers, it’s easy to forget how rare it is for first-year players to be stars, let alone leading MVP candidates. However, it takes time for most young players (including Trout himself last season) to find their footing: only one other rookie, 26-year-old Yoenis Cespedes, has amassed even a third of the value of the Angels’ outfielder this year.

Even highly rated rookies usually struggle in their initial exposure to big-league pitching, and those who find success at first often suffer in their second trips around the league or in their sophomore seasons, as opponents start to exploit their weaknesses. Some of them recover quickly from these setbacks. Others take years to adjust, and many never put together the production that was expected of them.

The Rangers are at the top of this report. They're also under .500 over the past four weeks.

The trot times for May 15 & 16: Adam Jones' 15th-inning shot, Big Papi's stroll, and Bryce Harper races Edwin Encarnacion into the top ten.

Albert Pujols may have beat Bryce Harper in the "first home run of 2012" race, but Harper made it to number two first. Thanks to home runs over the last two days, though, Harper and Pujols are now tied with two home runs apiece. I would be shocked to see the pair keep pace for the rest of the season, however.

Mariano Rivera's injury isn't just a blow for the Yankees.

The Thursday Takeaway
Joe Blanton pitched a shutout for the Phillies. Bryce Harper drove home the game-winning run for the Nationals. The Royals won at home for the first time this season.

And none of it matters, because Mariano Rivera wrecked his knee. He did not slip off the mound. He was not scrambling to field a bunt. He did not trip while covering first base. Rivera was doing something else that virtually every pitcher does and that he has thoroughly enjoyed doing throughout his career: shagging balls during batting practice.
