Christina Kahrl

No one in the division had a real strong winter, although the A's helped themselves on the margins.

While some teams gear up for the stretch run with oodles of pinch hitters and LOOGYs, some teams fill needs with useful players. Chris has the details.

Checking back in with a team covered earlier in the season proves illuminating for Jonah Keri in this week's Game of the Week.

When we last left the Indians seven weeks ago, for instance, the team looked like a fringe playoff contender, buoyed by a solid core of offensive talent, above-average starting pitching, and players such as Aaron Boone and Casey Blake who by dint of sheer regression to the mean figured to add to the team's second-half success. Yet that day's column focused more on the demise of Randy Johnson as a top-flight pitcher than on a possible Cleveland playoff run.

The Cubs shuffle through pitching options, the Brewers have one of the most interesting rosters in the game, and the Dodgers fight through injuries as they try to stay in the race. This and much more in Transaction Analysis.

This 8-6 loss to the Blue Jays may end up as the turning point in the Yankees' season.

The Yankees plan to promote Robinson Cano from Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday. They'll then move Cano into the starting role at second base. Left fielder Hideki Matsui will shift to center field. Bernie Williams gets bumped from center to the bench, plus occasional DH duty. The new left fielder? Tony Womack.

The Braves are racing to avoid the Cardinals, the Devil Rays are racing towards their best season ever, and the Blue Jays are racing towards the future.

The Expos will lean on Livan Hernandez to carry their questionable starting rotation. The Giants may tinker with their lineup. The Blue Jays wrestle with their starting corner-outfield spots. These and other news and notes in today's Prospectus Triple Play.

  • Quiet Camp: So you want to be a major league ball player. Normally there would be plenty of opportunity at any given Montreal Expos training camp. With all the fire sales and high turnover in recent years, there was always plenty of competition in spring training for the last few jobs. In 2003 alone, there were at least three starting positions (3B, 1B, CF) to be had, and if you could pitch, a few openings in the starting rotation.

    How many different places will the Expos call home next season? Jose Cruz Jr.--he's not quite Roberto Clemente yet. The Jays have decisions to make on some single-season temps. All this and more from Montreal, San Francisco, and Toronto in Friday's Triple Play.

  • Same Old, Same Old: Major League Baseball continues to drag its feet and spit on whatever shred of integrity it may have left by dragging out the Expos situation. Nutshell: The players want to play 81 games in one city next year, preferably Montreal. MLB wants a split schedule as a way to maximize team revenue; by playing a slate of games in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Monterrey, Mexico, or wherever else they can find local businessmen who'll make guarantees, Bud Selig and company have ensured that the legacy of short-sighted decisions shaped by grubbing for a few million dollars at a time will live on.

    The Expos shuffle their lineup, the Giants adjust to life without Robb Nen, and the Blue Jays are happy to have Frank Catalanotto. Plus reports on Brad Wilkerson, Tim Worrell, and Doug Davis.

    There are signs that teams "get it." I don't think it's any secret that the Blue Jays are one of the teams that get it. Sprung from the brain of the Athletics like Athena, the front office put together by J.P. Ricciardi can compete with the braintrust of any team. Despite revenue problems, hamstrung by contracts written in a bygone era, and having to play in the same division as the Red Sox and Yankees, the Blue Jays definitely "get it" and are headed for success.

    Howdy gang, nothing like spending five hours typing up the index for this year's edition of Baseball Prospectus to make me desperately hungry to dive right into playing catch-up on real-time baseball news. Yes, Transaction Analysis is long overdue, and for that I apologize, having spent the intervening time working with our writing team and the incomparably enthusiastic Jonah Keri to get this year's book out the door. If you can forgive me that, you'll also have to forgive me this temporary break from format, as I run down the most-notable moves made over the last couple of months, going by divisional pairs (Easts, Centrals, and Wests) to get caught up and resume your regularly scheduled TA mayhem by next week.
