Running through the notable notes and quotes of the week that was.

ICHIRO TAKES HIS TALENTS TO THE BRONX
“I am going to a team with the most wins from a team with the most losses. It’s hard to contain my excitement.”
Ichiro Suzuki, after being traded from the Mariners to the Yankees on Monday. Ichiro, who compiled 2,533 hits over more than 11 years with Seattle, went 1-for-4 in his Yankees debut, which just happened to come against the Mariners. (George A. King III, New York Post)

Running through the notable quotes of the week that was.

YOUKILIS RETURNS TO BOSTON
“I think the comment I made early, he made a big issue out of, and I don't think he ever wanted to get over it.”
—Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, when asked about Kevin Youkilis, who returned to Boston for the first time since being traded to the White Sox on June 24. The third baseman’s relationship with Valentine was reportedly turbulent. (Gordon Edes, ESPN Boston)

Scouts explain why they prefer Mike Trout to Bryce Harper, and a conversation with Bud Selig.

Bryce Harper and Mike Trout. Mike Trout and Bryce Harper. The two rookie outfielders are already linked like Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle even though neither has logged a full season in the major leagues.

Running through the noteable quotables from the week that was.

KEVIN YOUKILIS (INSERT BANAL JOKE ABOUT CHANGING SOX)
“It was an emotional time for everyone, for Kevin and his teammates. He’s been here a long time, he’s been a great player and has played hard every inning he’s been out there.”
—Red Sox GM Ben Cherington on long-time Fenway favorite Kevin Youkilis, who was traded to the Chicago White Sox last Sunday after more than eight years with Boston. (Nick Cafardo, Boston Globe)

The notable quotables from the week that was.

THE GREAT PINE TAR WAR OF 2012
“It's kind of a common practice that people have done this for years, and to point one guy out because he had pitched here a couple years ago, there probably was some common knowledge based on that, and so I thought it was a real cowardly — and I've used that word twice this year (also about Boston's Bobby Valentine) I guess, so it was kind of a (wimpy) move to go out there and do that under those circumstances.”
—Rays manager Joe Maddon on Nationals skipper Davey Johnson, who asked the umpires to check reliever Joel Peralta’s glove upon entering Tuesday’s game in the eighth inning. Peralta, who pitched for the Nationals back in 2010, was caught with pine tar in his glove and subsequently ejected. (Marc Topkin, Tampa Bay Times)

On the Beat: Astros Find New Orbit

5

John Perrotto

The Astros have performed above expectations so far and are not concerned about moving to the AL West in 2013, and a conversation with Gio Gonzalez.

So much about the Astros is new. In their case, new is good.

David Wright's newfound plate discipline has helped him bat near .400 for the season's first two months, and an interview with Yu Darvish.

David Wright and Ike Davis play on opposite corners of the Mets' infield. Their hitting approaches and results in the first quarter of this season also couldn't be more opposite. Wright is off to the best start of what has been a fine career. The 29-year-old third baseman has a triple-slash line of .399/.497/.601 in 173 plate appearances. Now healthy after being limited to 102 games because of back problems last season, Wright seems to have taken his game to another level in 2012.

A look at 10 men who should be considered to run a baseball operations department.

Welcome to Top 10 Week. All week long, various BP authors will be revealing their Top 10s in various categories. Today we start off with Will Carroll ranking the 10 best general manager candidates.

A couple years back, I did a list of the "next GM" crop. It's one of those innocuous exercises that nonetheless tells us a lot about what's going on inside of the front offices. We hear about GMs, about trades, about drafts, but even in Moneyball and earlier in Dollar Sign on the Muscle, we seldom hear about the day-to-day operations carried out by a group of people that is overworked, underpaid, and most importantly, vastly overqualified. This is a group that years ago would be more likely to be putting together a hedge fund, working for the State Department, or something a bit more "important" than the game of baseball. With the money of the modern era, teams got smarter, fast.

Prospectus Q&A: Mark Shapiro

2

David Laurila

The Indians executive vice president and general manager explains the rationale behind hiring manager Manny Acta.

When Mark Shapiro hired Manny Acta to be the manager of the Cleveland Indians last winter, he brought on board someone who speaks the same language. Shapiro sees many attributes in the Dominican-born skipper, and an important one is their shared understanding, and appreciation, for the objective side of the game. Shapiro, the club’s executive vice president and general manager, looked back at Acta’s hiring prior to a recent game at Progressive Field.

This time around, the remaining quartet gives voice to their observations and analysis.

Happy Sunday, and if you're reading this from the USA, we hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July. Actually, no matter where you're reading from, we hope you had a great Fourth! This is Prospectus Idol, I'm Dave Pease, and I hope you saw all the fireworks you wanted to yesterday.

The procedure that changed baseball was performed for the first time 30 years ago this week. Here's an explanation of just what it is.

Five years ago, Tom Gorman wrote the following piece on the wonder that is Tommy John surgery. Frank Jobe's fix is one of few things that truly changed the game of baseball, and should be remembered alongside the advent of night games, the live ball, and maybe even Jackie Robinson. For the anniversary, Baseball Prospectus was lucky enough to gain an historic interview-the first recorded interview with both Dr. Jobe and Tommy John. While Jobe and John have appeared together, there are no publicly available recordings.

Gorman's article from five years ago holds up remarkably well, largely because Jobe's work holds up just as well. The operation performed today is not significantly different than what Jobe did, hoping it would work. In the interview, you'll hear how the operation was inspired by a dreaded disease, what Tommy John thought when he woke up, how Bill Buhler's name should be remembered by many, and who the second pitcher to have Tommy John surgery is.
