Playoff Prospectus: Shuffling Through the World Series

22

Jason Parks

A humor-tinged recap of one of the most exciting World Series of our generation

Track #1: Iron Maiden: “The Duelist”
“Ready to start the duel begins the best man wins in the end.
A lunge and a feint, a parry too late
A cut to the chest and you're down
Seeing the stain then feeling the pain
Feeling the sweat on your brow.”

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.

Do early-season phenoms fade once the rest of the league learns to stop giving them pitches to hit?

Believe it or not, most of our writers didn't enter the world sporting an @baseballprospectus.com address; with a few exceptions, they started out somewhere else. In an effort to up your reading pleasure while tipping our caps to some of the most illuminating work being done elsewhere on the internet, we'll be yielding the stage once a week to the best and brightest baseball writers, researchers and thinkers from outside of the BP umbrella. If you'd like to nominate a guest contributor (including yourself), please drop us a line.

Team Injury Projection: Seattle Mariners

6

Corey Dawkins and Marc Normandin

The Mariners' past failures can be blamed on their bats, but their quest to recover respectability depends heavily on their health.

Team Injury Projections

The Team Injury Projections are here, driven by our brand new injury forecasting system, the Comprehensive Health Index [of] Pitchers [and] Players [with] Evaluative Results—or, more succinctly, CHIPPER. Thanks to work by Colin Wyers and Dan Turkenkopf and a database loaded with injuries dating back to the 2002 season—that's nearly 4,600 players and well over 400,000 days lost to injury—we now have a system that produces injury-risk assessments to three different degrees. CHIPPER projects ratings for players based on their injury history—these ratings measure the probability of a player missing one or more games, 15 or more games, or 30 or more games. CHIPPER will have additional features added to it throughout the spring and early season that will enhance the accuracy of our injury coverage.

These ratings are also available in the Player Forecast Manager (pfm.baseballprospectus.com), where they'll be sortable by league or position—you won’t have to wait for us to finish writing this series in order to see the health ratings for all of the players.

A glance at the arbitration-eligibles on the left coast, identifying player comparables and non-tender candidates.

About 220 players will be eligible for salary arbitration this off-season. Some will not receive a contract offer and become free agents December 2. Others will agree to terms before the new year. Many will file for arbitration in early January, with the vast majority of that group settling on 2011 contracts before arguing their cases at hearings in February.

Contractual Matters: AL West

Jeff Euston

The three-time defending champion Angels will have payroll flexibility after this season.

Baseball’s smallest division includes a big-spending defending champion, two clubs working on relatively tight budgets, and one team in the middle. Winding down our 2010 payroll outlook (we’ve covered the NL Central, AL Central, NL East, AL East, and NL West), so let’s examine the books of the Angels, Rangers, Mariners, and Athletics.

Team Health Reports: Seattle Mariners

The new-look Mariners have taken on new challenges for their training staff.

Seattle's farm director discusses Dustin Ackley's move to second base and the state of the M's system.

The Mariners are trending upward, but if they hope to continue their ascent and subsequently remain a perennial contender, a strong farm system will be a prerequisite. Much of that responsibility rests on the shoulders of Pedro Grifol. The club's director of minor league operations since November of 2008, Grifol is in charge of a variable smorgasbord of intriguing talent, one that includes mega-prospect Dustin Ackley and a distinct international flavor that features the likes of Greg Halman, Alex Liddi, and Carlos Triunfel. A former catcher who played nine professional seasons, the 40-year-old Grifol has been inthe Seattle organization since 2000, having previously served as a scout, minor league manager, and field coordinator.

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.
