If EVERYONE has a brilliant GM, does ANYONE have a brilliant GM? Or are standout GMs going the way of .400 hitters?

There is an industrywide understanding now—a lot of teams spend a lot of time on this. There is a constant understanding that you need to find the next area of opportunity.—Mark Shapiro

The ideas that at one time were innovative are now mainstream.—Sandy Alderson

Resident Fantasy Genius: Can Pitchers Control Their Consistency?

4

Derek Carty

We've heard about streaky vs. consistent hitters before, but can pitchers control their consistency?

In my preview of the NLDS between the Brewers and Diamondbacks last week, reader mopup1 posted a comment relating to something I’ve been meaning to look into for a while now.

Value Picks: Second, Short, and Catcher for 8/7/11

5

Michael Jong

A pair of rookie middle infielders come off the DL and rejoin VP this week.

Departures
Tyler Flowers, Chicago White Sox (Yahoo! 1%, ESPN 0%, CBS 8%)

Flowers was not completely terrible in his final week as the starter, tacking on another home run en route to a .118/.200/.353 week. Unfortunately, it was his last week as the starter in Chicago as A.J. Pierzynski returned from the disabled list and was reinstated as the primary catcher. Without playing time, Flowers will have to wait until 2012 to see if he can earn significant starting time to show off what he displayed this season.

Prospectus Hit and Run: I Don't Wanna Go Down to the Basement

50

Jay Jaffe

Contrary to what you might hear from more retrograde members of the baseball establishment, sabermetrics and storytelling don't have to be at odds.

As Opening Day approaches, hope springs eternal all around the majors. Some teams' bids at contention are founded upon the presumed maturation of exciting youngsters. Others rest their hopes on their stars' ability to turn back the clock and play as though their time had never passed. You could be forgiven for thinking that the latter was the strategy of the Anti-Sabermetric Brigade, a constellation of writers who insist upon fighting a war that has been fought and largely settled. Yet, signs of their resurgence keep popping up.

With a quartet of five-star prospects and a wealth of pitching overall, no system in baseball took a bigger step forward last year.

Taking it from the top, it's a system with plenty of star power up front, but depth falls away quickly.
