In The Game


Ezra Wise

Inside the minor-league video experience.

A minor-league video intern’s job is to record footage of minor-league affiliate games from multiple angles, attach time stamps and contextual data (such as pitch speed, type, location, and outcome) to the video through a software program called “BATS!,” then make the video clips available for viewing in-person and remotely by team personnel and players. That’s the boilerplate description that would show up on a job posting, but there’s far more to the position than one might initially think. It’s often the first gig and proverbial foot in the door for a young baseball operations employee, and while the job title doesn’t have quite the same cachet as an in-office position, spending an entire season with a minor-league team, whether out with an affiliate or down at the org’s complex, entails just as many, if not more, educational benefits.

In the words of a former video intern with an NL East club, these internships "are definitely beneficial, and a gateway into the industry. The experience is what each individual makes of it. If you choose to go the extra mile it can be an excellent avenue to learn player development at the grassroots level. You can enhance and sharpen your evaluation skills. In some cases, video interns are watching hundreds of professional games a year. Those who take the job seriously really prosper and develop a stronger baseball acumen. “ One’s primary responsibility is to make sure the video collection and management components of the job are handled flawlessly, but once that’s mastered, there’s so much to learn by simply paying attention to the surroundings, asking thoughtful questions of knowledgeable baseball people, and lending a helping hand wherever one’s needed.

The pretty much unreplicatable way to get your first job in professional baseball.

Every year at the winter meetings I offer to help exactly one job fair participant in a unique way. A little background: The job fair consists of scores of twenty-somethings who have to pre-register for the event. These are people who are trying to get their foot into the door by any means necessary. They stand out in San Diego because of their age, suits, and name. So every year I hold what I call the job fair lottery. Only three people have ever taken my offer to help them seriously and now all three work in baseball.

Indians seek a Data Architect for Baseball Systems

We don't like to hear baseball players complain about their lots in life, but can we blame them for not counting their blessings?

Back in December, Ken Rosenthal tucked this into a column about Bobby Abreu: “Abreu, who turns 38 on March 11, is not the type to demand a trade, but he would welcome one, according to sources with knowledge of his thinking.” The news in that sentence was that Abreu would welcome a trade, but the most telling part was that Abreu “is not the type to demand a trade.” To oversimplify things: we don’t like guys who demand trades, and we like guys who don’t. Rosenthal was protecting Abreu and stressing that Abreu is a good guy in a tough situation. Rosenthal knows Bobby Abreu well—I’m pretty sure; Rosenthal knows everybody well—and Rosenthal vouches for Abreu. Abreu is not the type to demand a trade. Remember that.

Two months later, of course, Abreu demanded a trade, or at least said it would be “the best thing... The right thing to do.” He also said he has “learned not to have much trust in these people,” which is just a staggeringly dumb thing to say about one’s boss. He suggested that the lack of clarity on his role has affected his preparation, sort of making an excuse for his sub-.100 batting average this spring. It’s gotten ugly, and Bobby Abreu looks like a jerk. But he’s not a jerk, is he? Ken Rosenthal vouched for him. So what’s going on?

Prospectus Today: Instant Replay


Joe Sheehan

It's a cut-and-dried issue--you're for it or against it--but the case for it is compelling.

I suppose that if I keep getting asked enough times on radio about instant replay, I should write about the topic. Let me make this simple: the only human element I want involved in the outcome of a baseball game has a minimum salary of $400,000. Players and their actions should be all that determines wins and losses, not the interpretation of what they've done by what amounts to middle management making a fraction of that number.

Schrodinger's Bat: Caught Stealing to Lose the Game


Dan Fox

Erick Aybar ended two Angels' losses by getting caught on the basepaths. Was there any method behind this madness?

"It was a good time to run and it happened to be a good pitch for the catcher to throw onIt's just part of the game. You want to get a guy in scoring position. Sometimes you're aggressive and it comes out against you. We're an aggressive team, and we like to play our game, within ourselves. It's not always going to work in your favor."
-- Howie Kendrick, after teammate Erick Aybar was thrown out stealing to end the April 10th game against Cleveland
