The tater trots for August 31: Jake Westbrook's granny, Pablo Sandoval's splash, David Ortiz's walk.

Apologies for the late post today.

Welcome Eric Hosmer to the bigs, say no to a certain National, and multiple ways to replace your gimpy third baseman

The top five players added this week are all ones we haven't seen in this space before, and they combine for a diverse set of skills. The most-dropped players are once again an obvious set: Matt Harrison, who (predictably) stinks again, tops the list, and he is followed by players such as David Freese (surgery), Travis Wood (bumped from a job), and Chris Narveson (gravity). You can make the case for keeping Narveson in NL-only leagues due to his strikeouts, but otherwise, let him walk.

Mike Aviles, Kansas City Royals (75 percent owned, +32 percent)
Aviles has third base eligibility and has hit well as of late—with the bottom falling out of the third base market due to injuries in the past week-plus, it's no wonder he has seen a significant uptick in ownership.

The tater trots for April 26: a big day for multi-home run days. Now including a list of all tater trot times for the day.

There were five different players across the league on Tuesday who went home after the game celebrating a multi-home run day. It generally feels rare just seeing one person with two home runs in a game, so seeing five on the same night is pretty impressive. It's just one of those weird, random occurrences, I guess. Unless, of course, pitchers from San Diego, Texas, Chicago, Kanas City and New York all conspired together to make it a night we wouldn't forget. Sounds plausible.

Fantasy Beat: Scoresheet Supplemental Draft Tips

0

Rob McQuown

The first supplemental draft of the Scoresheet season is upon us already, and Rob is here to guide you through the weekend.

The early draft date this year makes for some serious guesswork, and some seriously bad concessions of overall talent being bypassed by contenders in need of immediate help. Loading Team Tracker with position players with more than 3.9 offensive runs created per game and more than 19 plate appearances who are owned in fewer than 25 leagues gives this list of suspects:

Fantasy Beat: Value Picks at First, Third and DH

4

Michael Street

A look at players whose value has changed thanks to recent spring training roster moves and injuries.

With Opening Day on Thursday, teams are trimming their rosters and making adjustments as players fall prey to new injuries and recover slowly from old ones. Either scenario can uncover undervalued fantasy players, or players who are best left alone. For example, take Cleveland third baseman Jason Donald, whose cracked finger will keep him out until at least early April, opening the door to Jack Hannahan.

On the Beat: Spring Surprises

John Perrotto

A team-by-team rundown of players who've exceeded expectations this March.

After initially writing Wednesday that I would look at each team's biggest disappointments of the spring in this column, I've shaken off the catcher and decided to throw the changeup. Instead of ruining that warm and fuzzy feeling we created just two days ago, I've instead decided to look at a player from each of the 30 major-league teams who has been a pleasant surprise during spring training:

Ahead in the Count: Ranking the Ds

7

Matt Swartz

There has been a major shift in the team-wide defensive rankings this season from last, but what does this mean?

Although early sabermetrics treated defense somewhat dismissively, better metrics for estimating defensive performance have emerged over the last few years. One of the oldest metrics is Defensive Efficiency (DE), created by Bill James, and this was improved by James Click in 2003 when he created Park-Adjusted Defensive Efficiency (PADE). This metric does a good job at evaluating team defense, and other metrics such as BP's FRAA, John Dewan's Plus/Minus system with Fielding Runs Saved (FRS), and Mitchel Lichtman's Ultimate Zone Rating (UZR) became available to evaluate individual player defense. However, I've begun to look at DE and PADE, and I discovered a rather peculiar observation.
