Guthrie appears to have taken a step forward since becoming a Royal yet there is nothing especially different about him.

Jeremy Guthrie has a 3.06 ERA through five starts which looks like a continuation of his post-trade work with the Royals from last season when he had a 3.16 ERA in 91 innings over 14 starts. All told, he had a 3.14 ERA in 123 2/3 innings with 1.10 WHIP. He is blasting the zone resulting in a minuscule 5.8 percent walk rate – a marked improvement over his 6.9 percent career rate. His strikeout rate is at 16 percent as a Royal, up from a 14.3 career mark. Everything seems to suggest he has found a new level of production in his early-30s with his new club.

That strikes me as odd, though.

Overthinking It: This Offseason's Generic-Brand Bargains

5

Ben Lindbergh

Smart GMs don't pay for the brand name, but for the product. These players might have baggage but they get the job done as well as their expensive counterparts.

The free agency period, which got underway over the weekend, is a time when smart teams tread carefully, aware that the market contains as many potential pitfalls as it does opportunities. Land a high-profile free agent and you’re likely to improve your team, but you’ll also run the risk of succumbing to the Winner’s Curse, the tendency of a team to have to overpay for a player in order to outbid all his other suitors.

However, some less prominent players with lower contract demands stand a chance to approximate a more expensive player’s production, so a team can always try to cut costs and minimize risk by looking for comparable players with a little less buzz. Just as a smart shopper saves on over-the-counter medications by buying generic instead of paying a premium for a patent and nice packaging, a smart GM ignores name recognition in favor of production and price.

In a deadline swap of unwanted starters, the Royals have come out ahead.

On July 20th, the Rockies traded Jeremy Guthrie to the Royals for Jonathan Sanchez. It wasn't so much a change-of-scenery trade as it was synchronized self-preservation, as if both teams' rosters reflexively rejected a toxic substance and instinctively sent it somewhere, anywhere else. The two starters' stats, before the trade:

Two non-contenders just traded large chunks of their rosters to each other, while the Rockies and Royals exchanged faded lottery tickets.

The Rockies are moving Jeremy Guthrie to the bullpen and going to a rotation of four starters on 75-pitch counts. Are the numbers on their side?

Well here’s something you don’t see every day—the Rockies are going to a four-man rotation. And what’s more, they’re going to put their four starters on a 75-pitch limit. Jim Tracy explained his decision like so:

"I felt we had to do something non-conventional," said Tracy of his beleaguered pitching staff that includes a reliever Josh Roenicke who has thrown more innings than one of the team's starters. "I was given the opportunity to tweak this. We are going to see what transpires as we move forward."

Fantasy Focus: Don't Believe the Hype, 4/4

Marc Normandin

Going gaga over Guthrie and Gordon.

Now that the regular season is upon us, we can debut one of our new fantasy features: each Monday during the regular season, I will examine the players that have been added the most and dropped the most in standard leagues over the past week. (I will be using CBS's transactions statistics, but you may see me reference ESPN's numbers as well.) The goal is to figure out which players you should follow the wisdom of the crowd on and chase/cut, and which players you are better off holding on to or steering clear of. Where Value Picks identifies under-owned players who can help your team, my goal is to figure out if you need to make a move in the first place.

Fantasy Beat: Tout Wars Draft Results

22

Jason Collette

Jason explains his strategy and picks in Tout Wars to kick off a series that will run the season.

March Madness takes on a different meaning around the Collette household. Yes, my wife and her entire family are Kentucky Wildcats supporters so they are very much interested in the NCAA basketball tournament, but March Madness to my wife means an absentee husband most weekends. Between personal and professional associations, I am in no less than eight fantasy leagues most years: 2011 is no different. Add in new commitments to local media, and March has been a blur. It may not be her favorite time of the year, but it is mine, and it is why 100 percent of what I win is spent on a nice family getaway in the fall (once the baseball season is over, of course). After all, not too many spouses handle it as well as my much better half does when I kiss her and the kids goodbye, and head up to Manhattan to participate in Tout Wars each March.
