On the Beat: The AL Winter Agenda

7

John Perrotto

A look at the course of action teams from the junior circuit are considering this offseason, along with other news and notes from around the major leagues.

The hot stove season really began to heat up this week during the general manager's meetings in Orlando and figures to only get warmer by the time executives return to the Magic Kingdom on December 6 for the winter meetings. Here is a look at what each of the American League teams might do between now and the start of spring training:

On the Beat: Wednesday Update

5

John Perrotto

The Blue Jays say their June swoon is not a foreshadowing of another collapse, plus other notes from around the major leagues.

The Blue Jays' status as a contender is becoming more tenuous with each passing day. A 5-4 loss to the Indians on Tuesday night was their sixth in the last eight games, dropping them ever closer to .500 at 40-38.

Prospectus Hit and Run: AL East Competitive Ecology

18

Jay Jaffe

There's no denying it, this is the division where the big boys come to play.

It's no secret that the American League East has been the game's strongest division in recent years. They've produced the highest winning percentage and Hit List Factor by far over the past three years, as well as the last three AL pennant winners, two of the last three World Series champions, and the strongest fourth-place team of the wild-card era. With the two highest average payrolls, those of the Yankees and Red Sox, and a reliance on more free-agent muscle than any other division, this is baseball's high-rent district, though not every team is trying to spend with the big boys. As part of my ongoing series on the game's competitive ecology (introduced via a division-based overview, and continued with a look at the NL East), today we delve further into some numbers that illustrate that diversity.

Squawking Baseball: The Best and Worst GMs of the Aughties

66

Shawn Hoffman

The best and worst single seasons and decade-long performances by the men in the front office.

For me, this is a lot of fun, but as a refresher, here's how these rankings are calculated. First, we find each team's expected revenue, based on their third-order winning percentage, and how big their market is. Then, you divide that by what each team's marginal revenue should have been, had they won exactly as many games as their payroll would have predicted. (Draft pick value is also factored in, so the worst teams get slightly more credit than the vanilla mediocre teams.) The end result is PER-Payroll Efficiency Rating-which tells us how well each team spent their payroll dollars.

The notable quotables from the year that was.

SOMEHOW THIS PART OF THE YANKEE VICTORY PARADE HAS FADED FROM MY MEMORIES

The Cardinals self-evaluate and like what they see, a Canadian dump-off, the Yankees build a bullpen, plus news and views from around the game.

In many ways, Albert Pujols is the Cardinals. He has become the face of the franchise, ranking with other Cardinal legends-Stan Musial, Dizzy Dean, Bob Gibson, Lou Brock. He is also the best baseball player on the planet by any measure you prefer, as he leads the major leagues in EqA, VORP, and WARP3.

Joe Sheehan

The Jays may have gotten a mother lode of cash back on the books, but what's amiss is the judgment involved.

"We'd rather have the money."

On the Beat: Rust Belt Teams Rusted Out?

5

John Perrotto

Hue and cry in Pittsburgh and Cleveland risks overlooking the gains made to teams that needed change.

Contrary to popular opinion, the Pirates have not been rebuilding forever. It just seems that way. Since Sid Bream beat Barry Bonds' throw home to rally the Braves to a 3-2 victory in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game Seven of the 1992 National League Championship Series, the Pirates has been undergoing one rebuilding program after another.
