Sobsequy: The Best of the Triple-A Retreads

4

Adam Sobsey

What veteran players biding their time in Triple-A might help a big-league club in 2012?

Imagine that you are Tom Hanks in Cast Away, and that among the little-known details of your character (aside from an obsession with time and a badly rotting tooth) is your quiet but intense lifelong love of the Chicago White Sox.

Well, first, welcome back to civilization, Chuck Noland. Enjoy all the crab legs, and sorry you missed out on Helen Hunt—it’s a game of inches, my friend. Second, you’re probably planning to make a beeline for your favorite baseball publication. Presumably, that is Baseball Prospectus, but then again, you’ve been marooned for a couple of years and may have sustained severe damage to your judgment, which now makes decisions based on survivalist instinct rather than careful consumer reasoning. Some help, in case you haven’t picked up your annual: an admittedly informal and incomplete survey of BP writers suggests that the White Sox are destined to finish somewhere around fourth place in the American League Central, with one of my colleagues asking if he could slot them sixth. Chuck, there are only five teams in the American League Central.

So You Need: Help Up the Middle

15

Tommy Bennett

The 10 best free agents at the skill positions, plus who to avoid, and more.

The up-the-middle positions are known as the skill positions for a good reason. Catchers, shortstops, second basemen, and center fielders are hard to find. And the ones who play the positions well defensively? They're even harder yet to find. And if you find one that hits well enough to make you forget he's "just" an up-the-middle guy, I'm sure there are some inquiring minds who would like to know how you found him.

Prospectus Today: Feeling Expansive

24

Joe Sheehan

Bigger rosters make for new names in the boxes.

The boxscores of September 1 are usually populated by new names, old names, and some names we've just forgotten. With that in mind, let's dive and take a look at some of the new additions to the morning ritual of seeing who did what in which ballgame.

The Orioles make a move they can brag about, the Jays do something ridiculous, and what is it about that playoff race that keeps things interesting at the top of the standings in the division?

Future Shock: Double-A Preview

0

Kevin Goldstein

More than ever, Double-A ball is where underrated prospects shine, and overrated ones go to die.

As I mentioned in yesterday's Triple-A preview, predicting standings and/or win-loss records is a silly exercise for minor league teams, as rosters change constantly. Besides, winning not only isn't everything in the minors, it's really very little--just like every other level below The Show, it's all about player development. So our best bet is to focus on the players, or in this case groups of players, but keep in mind that even in the first week of the season, rosters are highly flammable.
