Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 5/15/12

5

Michael Street

The majority of Michael’s VP list turns over this week, but he’s got plenty of replacements lined up, including three who picked up their first home run of the year last week.

Statistically speaking, a single home run (like a single hit) is fairly meaningless. It’s the ultimate small sample, showing how one batter did against one pitcher (and one pitch) under one specific set of conditions. But psychologically speaking, when it’s the first home run of the season, it can mean so much more. The hitter feels confident in his swing or relieved at having gotten his first longball of the season out of the way, and it could mean a turnaround is coming. Look at Albert Pujols: in 27 plate appearances since his first jack of the season, he’s picked up 5 RBI—as many as he picked up in the 114 plate appearances before he finally went yard.

Transaction Analysis: The Twins Go Carolling

R.J. Anderson

The Twins fill their shortstop hole with Jamey Carroll, at least in theory.

As Jose Bautista can attest, the percentage of pitches a batter sees in the strike zone tells us a good deal about his capabilities.

The pitcher begins each confrontation with a batter with the initiative. He alone controls when the baseball is thrown, how it moves, and where it is located. Thus, the batter is by nature placed in a reactive position. However, the batter, too, has a measure of control over how the plate appearance proceeds. He stands at the plate with a club, and it is within his discretion to swing his weapon or not.

Examining the recently-released list of Dodgers creditors reveals the depths of the McCourts' mismanagement.

Jamey Carroll of the Dodgers is a nice enough player. A versatile veteran. Not too expensive. Given the right role, he probably could fit in on most major-league rosters.

Fantasy Beat: Bringing Them Home

3

Craig Brown

Craig takes a look at the RBI profiles of Jamey Carroll and Dan Uggla and examines the struggles of Uggla in 2011.

Last week, I took a look at hitters who were driving in the highest percentage of base runners. This week, it seems natural to turn the tables and look at the two worst at bringing home runners.

The VP list loses a pair of backstops, but Michael introduces a newly-healthy shortstop and some clarity in the Mets infield to the mix.

In this week's Value Picks for the up-the-middle positions, we welcome back a few players who have returned from the DL within the last week and might show some interest to mixed-league and single-league owners. In the meantime, some of our regulars in our VP portfolio continue to ride hot streaks, but how much longer can they last?

Prospectus Today: Pen Men Free Agents Review

Joe Sheehan

The entire horde of relievers on the market, from the ones you'll want to sign, the ones to invite, and those to ignore.

Before we get to the relievers, I want to comment on Jamey Carroll, who I inadvertently sorted into the relief pitchers during this process.
