On the 26th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. are talking about the two most prolific home run hitters of the past month: Rhys Hoskins and Giancarlo Stanton. Will Hoskins be Kevin Maas or Aaron Judge? (Or neither?) Will Stanton break 60 dingers? (Or 70?) Plus much, much more.

Welcome back to the DFA podcast! Hosts Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus) and R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), plus producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets), are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

On the 23rd episode of the DFA podcast, R.J. and Bryan need to tell you about Tyler Clippard and the Astros' bullpen. (Not great for a World Series contender.) And is Neil Walker the missing piece for Milwaukee's Wild Card run? (Probably not!) At least we have Giancarlo Stanton rumors. (Oh no!)

PECOTA helps pick the best player in baseball for every age, from Julio Urias to Bartolo Colon and all the superstars in between.

I have a vivid memory from my little league days of sitting in the dugout after practice and listening intently as a teammate read Baseball America’s rankings of the best players in the country by age. The best player on our team, who later went on to play Division I ball, was annoyed by the notion of a 13-year-old somewhere else getting so much attention for what couldn’t possibly be (he figured) superior talent. The sixth-best player on our team, who later went on to write this article, found it fascinating that there was a 13-year-old so good at baseball that they were being written about in magazines.

Giancarlo Stanton finds a new way to impress us with his power.

On Monday’s episode of Effectively Wild, I named Giancarlo Stanton to my All-MLB.TV team—a short list of players so compelling that I’d change channels solely to see them do their thing. Stanton’s thing is hitting homers, which he’s done more often than any other National Leaguer in 2014. His brand of dinger is particularly pleasing to the eye, consisting mostly of majestic shots that we have plenty of time to admire before they finally touch down in some remote part of the park where we didn’t know gravity would allow a baseball to trespass. The Marlins’ right fielder is responsible for the longest homer hit this season, as well as the longest launched since 2009, and he also owns 2014’s highest average home run distance. If I switch games to see Stanton, I’m tuning in on the off chance that he’ll hit one out of the stadium or at least destroy the scoreboard.

On Monday, Stanton hit a home run as awe-inspiring as any of the 135 that preceded it, but it wasn’t breath-taking because it took down a light tower or broke the 500-foot barrier. In fact, it brought down his 2014 home run distance by a few feet. In ESPN Home Run Tracker terminology, Stanton hit it “Just Enough,” which means that it “cleared the fence by less than 10 vertical feet, OR that it landed less than one fence height past the fence.”

My Model Portfolio: High Risk, High Reward

Mauricio Rubio

Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton give Mauricio's ideal Roto squad big-time power potential if they stay healthy.

On Friday, Mike Gianella released his latest mixed league Bid Limits, which spurred an idea from Bret Sayre called Model Portfolios, wherein the fantasy staff (and anyone else on the BP roster who wants to participate) will create their own team within the confines of a standard 23-man, $260 budget. The roster being constructed includes: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OFx5, UTx2, and Px9 along with the following standards issued by Sayre:

Fantasy Freestyle: Projecting the Top 15

21

Paul Sporer and BP Fantasy Staff

The fantasy crew tries to peg the top 15 picks and predict breakouts from later picks.

We know from Ron Shandler's Baseball Forecaster that since 2004, there is a 36 percent success rate in the ADP projecting the top 15. The most in any one year is seven of 15; the least is four. With that in mind, I challenged the fantasy team to try to guess the top 15. In addition to their stab at the top 15, I had them give their answers on the following:

Giancarlo Stanton and Jose Fernandez are the headliners in south Florida.

There isn’t a lot of fantasy value on this team, sure to be a bottom feeder again, but what they do have could be very high-impact.

Pebble Hunting: The Hypotheses That Require Revisiting

Sam Miller

A look back at the great stolen base scare, the Giancarlo Stanton lineup protection debate, the first base drought, and more.

One option would be to just stay quiet for six months, wait until the season is over, and dump 9,000 articles on you all at once. But the other option is to write things with incomplete data, acknowledge the incompleteness, note that that data are interesting, compelling, suggestive or freaky, and revisit it later when you remember.

We try to do the latter. Here are a few things to revisit from the first few weeks of the season or just before the season.

What Scouts Are Saying: August 15, 2013

Baseball Prospectus

Scouts' takes on Giancarlo Stanton, Jon Lester, Joey Gallo, Andrew Lambo, and other interesting players.

Many of our authors make a habit of speaking to scouts and other talent evaluators in order to bring you the best baseball information available. Not all of the tidbits gleaned from those conversations make it into our articles, but we don't want them to go to waste. Instead, we'll be collecting them in a regular feature called "What Scouts Are Saying," which will be open to participation from the entire BP staff and include quotes about minor leaguers and major leaguers alike.
