The Angels shortstop steals second when nobody is looking.

Erick Aybar's clever baserunning has earned e-ink before, but what he did in last night's game against the Mariners marks a new personal best.

The Angels shortstop serves as a good segue.

Few things in baseball are more fun to watch than clever baserunning. Therefore, Erick Aybar’s heads-up play on Saturday night deserves a mention.

Value Picks: Second, Short, and Catcher for 6/25/12

A look at Soto, Aybar, Norris, and Everth in this week's VP

Departures
The Pirates backstop, Rod Barajas (Yahoo! 4%, ESPN 0%, CBS 17%), has felt regression, and it has been swift and unkind.  At this point in the year, though, his slash is similar to his career line.  What you see is what you get.

Fantasy Beat: Expert Mocks vs. ADP

26

Jason Collette

A look at how the MLB.com Fantasy411 mock drafters strayed from ADP values and what that means

It started with Matt Kemp and ended with Chase Headley, but the regular phase of the Industry Mock Draft sponsored by our friends over at MLB.com’s Fantasy411 crew is finally over. It took 13 teams, 299 players, and what felt like 29 weeks, but the draft is completed.  While anyone can go to MockDraftCentral.com and pull up the most recent ADP reports that show aggregated results for nearly 800 mixed drafts, the expert drafts have appeal because, as one of my friends put it, “Experts don’t follow trends, they set them.”

Winter League Preview

5

Carlos J. Lugo

A preview of the Dominican Winter League, taking a look at the teams, stadiums, managers, and players to watch for.

The "National Religion" came back on October 16th, as the Dominican League launched its 56th edition. Reliably praised as having the highest level of talent among the winter leagues, one should expect to watch another mix of highly ranked prospects, mid-level major leaguers, a few recognizable American players, veterans looking for another shot, and some major league stars between now and the end of the Caribbean Series in February. The league format has six teams playing a 50-game regular-season schedule, with the four best records advancing to a long 18-game round-robin playoff, and the two remaining best clubs play a best-of-nine final series to decide the league's champion. Without further ado, here's what this season will bring us:

Tigres del Licey (Licey Tigers)
Home: Santo Domingo
2008-09 record: 26-24, fourth place (tied) regular season; 12-6, first place round-robin; beat the Gigantes in the final series 5-0.
Ballpark: Estadio Quisqueya; strong pitcher's park, with a Park Factor of 92.

Every Given Sunday: Manny-Free, Regret-Free

2

John Perrotto

The Red Sox are happy as is with their new, low-key left fielder, plus news and reviews from around the major leagues.

ST. PETERSBURG—The Dodgers' acquisition of Manny Ramirez will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest in-season moves in baseball history. The left fielder played a huge role in the Dodgers winning the National League West and advancing to the National League Championship Series. He hit .396/.489/.743 with 17 home runs in 53 regular-season games after being acquired from the Red Sox as part of a three-team deadline-day trade that also included the Pirates. That was enough for Ramirez to lead all Dodgers’ hitters with 47.6 VORP while also posting a sizzling .404 EqA. Ramirez was 5-for-10 with two home runs and five runs scored in the three-game sweep of the Cubs in the National League Division Series, and has gone 3-for-8 with a homer in the first two games of the NLCS. Nevertheless, the Dodgers trail the Phillies 2-0 in the best-of-seven series that resumes tonight at Dodger Stadium.

Caribbean Series 2008

Derek Jacques

Dominican Team #2 proved it was second to no other Caribbean team with an 8-2 victory in the title game.

SANTIAGO, Dominican Republic--All good things must come to an end, and the 2008 Caribbean Series was no exception. The question was not if it would end but when-Thursday night with a win by Licey at its hated rivals' stadium, or Friday night, in a tiebreaker between the Dominican teams?

Before we could have an answer to that question, the two eliminated teams, Mexico and Venezuela, would face off in the early game. It would be a lie to say that this game was more than just an afterthought for those of us preoccupied with the big nightcap, but coming off of Mexico's stunning victory over Licey, I thought it would be interesting to do the same kind of lineup analysis for Mexico that we did for Venezuela on Day Three:

Prospectus Today: Division Series, Day One

0

Joe Sheehan

Strokes of tactical genius, roster design mishaps, and some flat-out brilliant pitching performances.

Three baseball games, five good to great starts, and just 14 runs scored, with the high mark being six. When you get this much starting pitching, it limits the amount of tactics displayed, and subsequently, the topics to write about. Let's go to the videotape…
