The trot times for April 26: two heroic home runs and Jay Bruce almost hits a sleeping kid.

The worst thing in the world that could have happened did happen on Thursday: Jarrod Saltalamacchia, he of the 47-letter last name, hit two home runs for the Red Sox. Now, in the "Today's Trots" list below, Salty's last name followed "#1" and "#2" will cause every other trotter to have an obscene amount of space following his name. These are the trials and tribulations of a Tater Trot Tracker.

The tater trots for April 8: Miggy and Avila mash in Detroit, Robinson and Parrino take their first trots.

It was Sunday afternoon baseball, which we've been waiting for for over six months, so that was a plus. For some reason, though, we didn't get all 30 teams playing. The Mariners and A's, who squared off in Japan roughly two months ago, rested. Yes, that is a bit odd.

As Mariano Rivera leaves his 1,000th appearance behind, see how he stacks up according to Nate's standards.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

Before Goose Gossage got into the Hall of Fame and Mariano Rivera reeled off another six superb seasons, Nate turned his statistical eye on the bullpen in the following article, which originally ran as a "Lies, Damned Lies" column on January 6, 2005.

Pegging BP's favorites in both leagues, both in the standings and for the major awards.

Today we reveal the Baseball Prospectus staff predictions for the division standings and the major player awards  (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American and National Leagues. Each staff member's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division with first-place votes in parentheses, plus the results of our pre-season MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting. 

For the MVP voting, we've slightly amended the traditional points system in place that has been used elsewhere, dropping fourth- and fifth-place votes to make it 10-7-5 for the MVP Award, and the regular 5-3-1 for the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards (that's 5 points for a first-place vote, 3 points for a second-place vote, etc.). Next to each of these selections we've listed the total number of ballots, followed by the total number of points, and then the number of first-place votes in parentheses, if any were received.

Fantasy Focus: Love Is All Around

Marc Normandin

Marc reveals which players he'll be holding a torch for on draft day.

The positional rankings for fantasy baseball will be here soon—once the depth charts and Player Forecast Manager are ready, I can roll them out for you—but in the meantime, I can share my thoughts about some players in a bit more detail than that list format allows. Jason Collette told you which players were marked DTM on his list already—I'll be doing the same eventually, but I was feeling optimistic last night. That means you get to see which players I am unabashedly head over heels for, the ones I am willing to spend a few bucks extra on at auction because, yes, they are that appealing.

Contractual Matters: Bruce'd Up

7

Jeff Euston

Dissecting the soon-to-be official Jay Bruce contract extension, and its implications for the Reds.

The Reds’ $51 million extension with Jay Bruce should become official Tuesday. The deal locks the right fielder in the middle of the Cincinnati lineup affordably for the foreseeable future and secures the right fielder financially for life. So what’s not to like?

Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Preview : Phillies vs. Reds

6

Christina Kahrl

It's red-on-red violence between two founding franchises, but who'll wind up dead?

Back in the '70s, the Phillies and the Reds were half of a quartet of clubs that basically owned the National League. Dial up National League post-season action, and you'd get the Reds or the Dodgers from the old NL West, and the Pirates or the Phillies from the old NL East. That foursome won nine pennants and 18 of the 20 playoff slots from 1970-79; get picky and run from 1971-80, and it's still niine of 10 and 17 of 20. Yet for all that, this will be just the second time two of the league's founding franchises get to square off. You have to be a fan of a certain age or owe a bit to Joe Posnanski to have much memory of the 1976 NLCS, which was the Big Red Machine's stepping stone to its second (and last) pennant—they had to go through crushing the Phillies first, sweeping three in the best-of-five, with the third game decided in Cincinnati after an exchange of blown saves.

Reds right fielder Jay Bruce doesn't bemoan his bad luck on balls in play.

Jay Bruce has the rudimentary understanding of sabermetrics and he grasps the concept of BABIP. However, the Reds right fielder declined the opportunity to write off his .223 batting average of 2009 to a poor BABIP.
