Mike Gianella

Yes, that really is Freddy Garcia starting an elimination game.

The bullpens took over early last night in Chavez Ravine, but the Dodgers poured on the afterburners and took Game Three in a 13-6 rout. Here is a look at the PECOTA odds and projected lineups for Game Four of the NLDS.

Three players tell Sam about the toughest pitches they've seen this season. They weren't the ones you'd expect.

Since the very first Best Pitches Thrown This Week, we’ve bumped up against the limits of what we can really conclude about a pitch. The pitch is not meant to impress us; it is meant to impress the batter, and we are not the batter, so our conclusions are answering the wrong question. So this week I asked some baseball players to name the nastiest pitch they have seen this year. These are their answers, which are interesting to me because these are absolutely not the answers I would have given for them. None of these guys even fell over! Batter falling over is 90 percent of my typical assessment. But they know. I don’t know. They know. Here we go.

3. Freddy Garcia’s splitter to Peter Bourjos.

Preseason Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 3/1/12

Mike Petriello

Phil Hughes, Jamie Garcia, Chris Capuano, and Jake Peavy get the Preseason VP treatment this week

It’s March 1 as you’re reading this, and that is noteworthy if only because we’re finally into a month where there’s going to be real, live Major League Baseball that counts—even if the Japan-based series between the M’s and A’s will take place in the middle of the night for most of us. With the season fast approaching, fantasy drafts are really starting to heat up. Here are some thoughts on four pitchers who may or may not be on your radar for various reasons…

Phil Hughes | SP | New York Yankees
Mixed: $3 | AL-only: $10 |
PECOTA SP Rank: - | SP ADP: 67

On the Beat: Seeking Starters in Yankees Camp

2

John Perrotto

While Joe Girardi awaits the arrival of Manuel Banuelos and other pitching prospects, he has a host of veteran options to sift through for the 2011 rotation.

TAMPA—When Manuel Banuelos took the mound at Legends Field the other day to throw live batting practice, everyone stopped to watch the Yankees' little left-handed pitching prospect. Included in that group was Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra.

Baseball Prospectus

The Angels go on a spending spree. The Dodgers frustrate their fans. The A's wheel and deal. The Padres are bullish about 2004. Our tour of major league transactions continues with a visit out West.

Could Milton Bradley be on the move? What are the chances of the Dodgers making the playoffs? And exactly how erratic has Freddy Garcia been this season? All these questions, their answers, and much more news from Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Seattle in your Friday edition of Prospectus Triple Play.

  • Stand Up and Be Counted: The trade deadline's passed, the new World Champion won't be crowned for about another five weeks, and yet, the trade rumors are buzzing, based on role changes, competition for limited space, and up and coming prospects. Who might be moving?

    There's only one game this season I've gone back and watched again from start to finish: Mike Mussina's May 7th start against the Mariners, where he pitched eight innings, gave up five hits, one a homer, struck out 12, and walked none. Mussina's been otherworldly so far this year, and watching him I know that it's not that he's particularly lucky--he's working with top-shelf stuff and great command. Batters are left walking back to the dugout shaking their heads and asking their hitting coach: "What am I supposed to do with that knuckle-curve he's throwing for strikes?" And the coach shrugs, because he doesn't know either. It was a great game, because it made me sit and think about what pitchers are and become: Mussina was almost forgotten last season, his years of excellence not recent enough, and now he's offering a traveling clinic on how to pitch. And this, in turn, leads me to wonder about Freddy Garcia's failure to move from future ace to ace. I wrote about this a little last September and found that Garcia had been lucky in his good seasons with seeing balls put into play turned into outs by the fine Mariner defense of 2000-2001.
