In order to become more right, we have to be wrong. But we also have to acknowledge that we're wrong and attempt to figure out why.

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.

Moseying through the NL Central's transactions...

Obvious Good Move: Slipping Aroldis Chapman onto the active roster. Think K-Rod 2002 without the roster chicanery. Think Livan Hernandez in '97 or David Price in 2008, since he's good enough to shut the door or get something started. If anything goes wrong with any component of the staff, the hard-slinging Cubano has the potential to dominate.

Transaction Action: Central Preoccupations

The Pirates begin their own youth movement, the Cubs finally shelve A-Ram, and the Tigers say good-bye to defensive obsessions.

A scurvy crew can hurt worse in the worst kinds of losses.

April being April, the Pirates were in second place at the start of tonight's action, while the Brewers sat below .500. The AL Central might get all the pub for personifying parity, but with the Cardinals out front and the Astros in the cellar, the Pirates can take some satisfaction in ranking atop the muddled middle in the division two weeks into the action. This early on, it would be silly to credit this with too much significance. At 5-7, the Brewers came into town with their own issues, but here again, two weeks is barely a blink in baseball time.

Fantasy Beat: Hot Spots: Catcher, Second Base, and Shortstop

2

Michael Jong

Michael Jong covers some undervalued players up the middle, including Chris Iannetta, Jeff Clement, Akinori Iwamura, and Orlando Hudson.

Hot Spots is now transitioning into discussing undervalued players who could be good buys on the cheap. With the season underway, waiver wire scouring will once again be a daily routine, and for many fantasy teams, that routine will include looking for decent players to fill holes in those premium defensive positions "up the middle." This week, we start off with a few guys who have recognizable names but are being overlooked by many fantasy teams for various reasons.

Chris Iannetta cannot catch a break with the Rockies. Last year, he was a decently above average hitter (.274 TAv) at catcher and still lost playing time at the end of the year to Yorvit Torrealba (.257 TAv). This year, manager Jim Tracy came out and said prior to the start of the season that Iannetta would split time with Miguel Olivo (.261 TAv in 2009). What does Iannetta have to do to secure a starting gig? It would help if he could hit a little better than his career .240 AVG and that abysmally low .228 he hit last year. Iannetta has obvious contact issues (career 72.9 percent contact rate), but if he climbs up to PECOTA's projected .251 mark, he can easily pick up the playing time he needs to get 15-20 HR and 60-70 runs/RBI. He is available in close to 93 percent of ESPN leagues, so stash him on the bench and be the guy who reaps the benefits of a home-run hitting catcher in Coors later in the year.

Camp Battles: NL Central

Everyone is trying to settle on a fifth starter in baseball's largest division.

Chicago Cubs: Rotation issues again, an ephemeral victory to be won at the keystone, and distributing outfield playing time.

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.
