Overthinking It: If I Had My Brothers

3

Ben Lindbergh

Surprise: the Upton-inspired brothers-helping-brothers theory has some support in the numbers.

B.J. and Justin Upton are brothers. They’re also both Braves, thanks to the November signing that brought B.J. to Atlanta and the trade last week in which Justin joined him. As one would expect, the Uptons are excited about the opportunity to be big-league teammates, which they’ve been hoping to have for years. Here are some quotes from a couple of the many stories written about the Uptons in the wake of the trade:

Pinch-hitting opportunities involving Hall of Fame third baseman are timeless!

The following is not about Alex Rodriguez and Raul Ibanez, because I didn't want to do what it would take to get there. There are probably enough pieces in place that you could make it about A-Rod and Ibanez, and that's your choice! It would probably be fun, for you, to do that. It just wasn't my intent.

Research Mailbag: James McDonald, Professional Hitter

6

Bradley Ankrom

This week's mailbag takes a look at Hall of Famers who were picked in later rounds of the draft, home team winning percentage in extra innings, and Matt Cain's one-hitter.

Welcome to the latest installment of the Baseball Prospectus Research Mailbag. This week, we’ll tackle Hall of Famers being selected in later rounds of the draft, the home team’s winning percentage in extra-inning contests, and the quirks of Matt Cain’s one-hitter against the Pirates last Friday. As always, if there’s a question you would like to see answered in a future mailbag, please feel free to send it in via email or through the “Contact Author” form (please remember to include your full name and hometown with your question).

George Brett and Mike Schmidt went back-to-back with the 29th and 30th picks of the 1971 draft. Have there been any other cases of two Hall of Famers being picked back-to-back in the draft? Also, what’s the latest a Hall of Fame player has gone in the draft?

Contractual Matters: Protest Songs

2

Jeff Euston

Looking at the use of the protest rules and why most appeals are struck down.

The Yankees and Royals will square off in the Bronx on Saturday, the 27th anniversary of the infamous Pine Tar Game. That 1983 Sunday afternoon not only made George Brett a fixture in madcap blooper reels, but it is also one of the few major-league games in which a protest was upheld.

You Could Look It Up: More Fun With Comparables

0

Steven Goldman

The players PECOTA matches with two AL youngsters offer several divergent career paths.

We received such an enthusiastic response to last week's look at the wonderful world of PECOTA comparables that we've decided to spend some more time looking at the sometimes subtle suggestions that one can, accurately or not, read into the lists of players that the system says stand alongside our current heroes.

0

Dan Fox

Sorting and separating the best and worst baserunners from the rest.

"I don't really like to run, and that's why I didn't go out for track in high school. I ain't no fool, I see those dudes running around a track for a living. I wouldn't want to run against them. I wouldn't want to embarrass myself."
--Willie Wilson

Schrodinger's Bat: My First Full Season

0

Dan Fox

Memories of this fan's rite of passage engender a look back at 1977 on the bases.

"This team, it all flows from me. I'm the straw that stirs the drink. Maybe I should say me and [Thurman] Munson, but he can only stir it bad."
-Attributed to Reggie Jackson in the May 1977 issue of Sport magazine.

Schrodinger's Bat: The Curious Case of Mark Teahen

0

Dan Fox

In this tale of two third basemen, Dan sorts out which one's the genuine article: the old Mark Teahen, or the new terror of the American League.

--Former Royals General Manager Allard Baird, perhaps with an "I told you so" when asked about the third baseman's breakthrough season.
