The Diamondbacks trade for Tony Campana, the Marlins sign Casey Kotchman, and Jack Cust lands in Tampa Bay.

Sooner or later God'll cut you down.

The thing about driving a long distance alone is that you have a lot of time to think meanderingly. When you're driving a long distance alone on your way to a baseball event, your thinking tends to bend toward baseball.

During the particular trip I took last weekend to FanFest in Oakland, I saw a sign, I think somewhere near Coalinga, California, a perfectly usual sign, reading "high winds" or something else to that effect that got me joking

Russell Branyan and Jack Cust are hitting back to back at Scranton Wilkes/Barre, and they're striking out, walking, and homering as often as you'd expect.

Some very prominent prospects are putting up some very pretty numbers in Triple-A. But you can have Adam Eaton's .398 average, Anthony Rizzo's 22 homers, Brett Jackson's eight triples, Anthony Gose' 24 steals, and Trevor Bauer's 11.8 strikeouts per nine. I'll take these two:

Offering at least one reason to tune in to each potentially talent-challenged team when you're flipping through your MLB.tv options this season.

Bad teams have been much on my mind lately. Blame it on being an A's fan, blame it on marrying into a Mets family, blame it on my generally sour personality. Irrespective of the cause, I find myself less intrigued by the powerhouses or the teams in tight races for the playoffs than by the squads that will come out of the gate slow, dawdle through the dog days, and finish in a muddle of obscure Triple-A players crowding the expanded September rosters as they fight for 2013 jobs on what will likely be yet another mediocre team.

If you're a fan of one of these franchises, you'll probably watch them whatever happens. But what will the rest of you watch on the nights when your team is off, or long, lazy weekend afternoons? You can always tune in to see the Yankees and Rays face off in a game with playoff implications for the umpteenth time, but if you're like me, you get a little bored seeing the same (really good) players over and over. Let me present, then, a team-by-team list of reasons to tune into a game at which more casual fans might turn up their noses. Call it the Every Team is Special list.

Prospectus Hit and Run: The Vortices of Suck, Part II

8

Jay Jaffe

Which outfielders and DHs proved to be the biggest black holes in the majors?

Picking up where I left off on Friday, we continue hunting the fish at the bottom of the major-league barrel in search of the positions where teams got the worst production—worse than the Replacement-Level Killers, but without the burden of toiling for a contending team. As with their catching and infield brethren, the following players helped produce tornado-level disasters amid their lineups, often at salaries that represented far more than just soft breezes running through their teams’ bank accounts. These are the Vortices of Suck.

The Keeper Reaper: First, Third, and DH for 1/24/12

Michael Street

Michael looks at the Yankees' designated-hitter situation, plus Carlos Pena, Eric Hosmer, and marginal contributors Jack Cust and Ty Wigginton.

Shifting from Fridays to Tuesdays doesn’t mean my fantasy perspective has changed, and the ten days since my last column brought a few noteworthy fantasy moves—some more beneficial than others.

Shallow: NO
Medium: NO
Deep: NO
AL-only: NO
Super Deep: NO

The Braves plug holes by promoting from within, the Phillies do just the opposite, the Diamondbacks sign a survivor from the Pirates' shipwreck, and a Marlin has a mound meltdown.

Fantasy Beat: The DH Conundrum

9

Jason Collette

Teams dish out the dough for players whose only task is to mash, but they don't always get a good return.

The designated hitter is one of those principles that seem to be a lot better in theory than in practice for most American League franchises. In theory, AL clubs can replace their feeble-hitting pitchers with a big, strong bat that will help the offense’s efficiency. But those big hitters are not always plentiful for some teams and not affordable for others. For every Edgar Martinez out there, a team ends up with Pat Burrell, as the only guarantee a designated hitter gives a team is the right to choose not to put the pitcher in the batting order.

Fantasy Beat: Value Picks at First, Third and DH

2

Michael Street

Which corner infielders make the Value Picks list for the first week of the season?

Finding fantasy waiver wire value requires several different strategies, featured in this week’s debut of the Value Picks regular-season edition. To ensure availability, candidates for the VP list must have less than 20 percent ownership in ESPN leagues (I’ll typically reference CBS for comparison), a narrow band that still saw Luke Scott, Mitch Moreland, Pedro Alvarez, and Gaby Sanchez among last year’s VPs.

Prospectus Q&A: Russell Branyan

David Laurila

The king of Three True Outcomes talks about strikeouts, long balls, and staying clean in the steroid era.

Russell Branyan, depending on the specific parameters, is the reigning king of Three True Outcomes. The Seattle slugger has a career TTO of 50.77, which is unmatched among players with at least 3,000 plate appearances. If the minimum is lowered to 2,000 PA, he ranks second behind Jack Cust (53.68) and just ahead of Mark Reynolds (50.09), Rob Deer (49.06), and Adam Dunn (48.98).

The reigning American League Rookie of the Year gives a light-hearted lowdown of the diverse personalities in the Athletics' clubhouse.

Andrew Bailey is the reigning American League Rookie of the Year, and he is also one of the game’s most engaging personalities. The Athletics’ closer clearly has a talented right arm, as evidenced by his 1.81 ERA and 40 saves in 98 big-league appearances. Based on his responses to questions about several Oakland teammates, he also possesses a keen and calculated wit.
