Lies, Damned Lies: PECOTA Takes on Third Base Prospects

0

Nate Silver

PECOTA loves quite a few young third basemen, but how many of them will remain at the hot corner?

Player (Age) Upside Evan Longoria, Rays (22) 339.1 Andy LaRoche, Dodgers (24) 178.0

A point-by-point response that provides some explanation into how Kevin crafts his prospect rankings.

Prospect rankings generate tons of emails, be it from fans, agents, front office folks, even players themselves. More often than not, they are simple enough questions. 'Why isn't player X ranked higher, or ranked at all?' is the usual tone these emails take, but one of our subscribers delivered quite the missive concerning this week's rankings of the Colorado Rockies, and it's one that took some time to reply to, while also covering some broader ground on the ranking process in general, so I thought I'd share with the class.

Future Shock: Positional Rankings - Third Base

Hot corners around the majors are already stocked with young talent--and there's even more on the way.

We're living in a bit of a golden age for third baseman. Beyond the historically great Alex Rodriguez, young talents like

Future Shock: Texas League Scouting Notebook

0

Kevin Goldstein

Kevin's latest prospect notebook covers up-and-comers from the Rockies, A's, Rangers and Astros organizations.

Don't know what to write? Spend the afternoon on the phone with the people in the trenches every day and let the scouts do all the work. Here's what some of the people with their eye on the Double-A Texas League have to say about some of the top talents from Tulsa (Rockies), Midland (Athletics), Frisco (Rangers), and Corpus Christi (Astros).

Kevin moves over to the senior circuit, highlighting NL players who have seen their stock rise or fall in spring training.

With spring training close to wrapping up and most prospects without big league jobs already reassigned to minor league camp, it's not too early to take a look at the spring statistics to see which player's stocks are rising and falling. Spring stats should always be taken with a grain of salt, so here's some additional background of some of the National League's best and worst performances by prospects. Statistics are through games of March 27.

Lies, Damned Lies: PECOTA Takes on Prospects, Wrap-up

0

Nate Silver

Nate finishes up his PECOTA-driven look at prospects with a few rankings, and some final thoughts.

Since the All-Star Game was first played in 1933, there have been 519 players who have been named to participate in the event at least three times. This constitutes a reasonable, if slightly arbitrary, definition of what we might consider to be a "star" performer; our apologies in advance to relatives of Tim Salmon and Bobby Abreu. If we divide that 519 figure by the number of seasons covered during this time period (73), we come up with 7.1 players that "graduate" to star status per year. That is, if we took a typical amateur draft class, we'd expect--give or take--seven players from that draft class to develop into stars.

Fantasy Focus: Building a Fantasy Farm System

0

Jeff Erickson

Jeff wonders if fantasy owners should stock their farm system with young hitters or young pitchers.

Is the same true of a fantasy farm system? I've always believed so, and my experiences in keeper leagues have only reinforced that point of view. Take the RotoWire Staff League as an example. We now have three years under our belt, in an 18-team league where each team starts the year with a 10-man minor league roster. In those three years, I've drafted 19 minor leaguers (because some of those draftees were retained, I didn't have the full complement of 10 picks each season) and traded for three others:

Instead, he slipped to #6 on our Top 50 list, and he would rank slightly lower than that--10th or 11th--on a pure PECOTA list. What happened?
