Joe Girardi is happy with his Yankees but thinks they are capable of more, along with other news and notes from the major leagues.

Joe Girardi isn't a taskmaster. The Yankees' manager might occasionally get thrown out of a game, but he's not much of a screamer or yeller and rarely draws attention to himself. Billy Martin he is not.

World Series Prospectus: Yankees versus Phillies Preview

25

Jay Jaffe

Will the Phillies establish a mini-dynasty, or will the Yankees add to their crowded trophy case with another title?

A year ago, the Phillies broke a 28-year-old title drought by winning the World Series, defeating the upstart Rays in five games. After winning 93 games in the regular season and tidily dispatching both the Rockies and the Dodgers in the first two rounds, they're back to defend their crown with a cast that's largely the same, save for summer acquisition Cliff Lee. They're the first NL team to repeat as pennant winners since the 1995-1996 Braves, and if they win the World Series, they'll be they first senior circuit club to do so since the 1975-1976 Reds.

Prospectus Today: Putting the Drama in Drama Season

67

Joe Sheehan

Two tight games later, and we're back to being spoiled by great October action.

This postseason becomes a bit more ridiculous with each passing day. Counting the AL Central playoff, we've had 21 games since the regular season ended on October 4. Five have gone to extra innings. Three saw the lead change hands after one team was down to its final out. In 14 games, the tying or tie-breaking run has come to the plate in the ninth inning. Yesterday featured six lead changes, two extra innings, and the Phillies winning a game that they trailed through 26 outs-for the second time in just six games. It was a day that could make baseball fans out of people who had never heard of the game, or just remind the devoted of why they keep coming back.

Playoff Prospectus: Yankees versus Twins LDS

Joe Sheehan

Last night's victors face a tall order in their Bronx confrontation.

The Yankees have been pretty sure they'd be playing in the postseason since not long after the All-Star break. The Twins didn't have much chance of doing so until about two weeks ago, and only found out for sure about 18 hours before the first pitch of the Division Series. That's just one reason of many why this AL Division Series matchup is one of the most lopsided in the 15-year history of the three-tiered playoffs.

Every Given Sunday: The Bronx Challenge

0

John Perrotto

Joe Girardi has a new stable of young hurlers placed in his care, the Mariners switch over to "win now," and rumors and rumblings from around the game.

It is never easy replacing a legend, and make no mistake, that is what Joe Girardi is doing. Girardi is entering his first season as manager of the New York Yankees, taking over for Joe Torre. In winning four World Series in 12 seasons, Torre was beloved by everyone except George Steinbrenner and his sons for his calm demeanor and soothing manner, which brought a sense of an inner peace to the franchise that never sleeps. "Joe Torre for me was a father figure," Yankees catcher Jorge Posada reflected. "He's a great man and we're going to miss him dearly."

Prospectus Today: Bronx Mayhem

Joe Sheehan

Back from jetting around, Joe settles back into discussing a subject closer to home.

I honestly don't know how beat writers and others who travel frequently do it. Perhaps it wouldn't have been a big deal to me in my twenties, or at least if I'd started then, but the travel of the last two weeks took a lot out of me. From New York to Boston to Denver to New York to Phoenix, I didn't spend more than three days in any bed, racking up about 8000 air miles, a couple hundred more by train, and an encyclopedic knowledge of how Expedia and Hotwire work.

Every Given Sunday: Offseason Plans

John Perrotto

The divination of what every major league team will do during a busy winter, plus front-office notes from Colorado, New York, and St. Louis.

They hadn't even gotten all the cigar ashes and champagne stains out of the carpet in the visiting clubhouse at Coors Field when the offseason began in earnest. The Detroit Tigers and Atlanta Braves pulled off a major trade this past Monday, less than 24 hours after the Boston Red Sox finished their sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the World Series. The Tigers acquired shortstop Edgar Renteria from the Braves--making official the shift of Carlos Guillen to first base--in exchange for a pair of top-flight prospects in right-hander Jair Jurrjens and outfielder Gorkys Hernandez.

Internet Baseball Awards

Greg Spira

With tight races for the NL Pitcher of the Year and AL Rookie of the Year, it's time to find out who goes home with the virtual gold.

Click here for the full results of the voting.

It's time to announce the winners of the 15th annual Internet Baseball Awards. More than 1,400 cyberspace baseball fans participated in this effort to honor those players and managers whose performance in 2006 were most deserving.

Before all the IBA ballots are counted, staff picks give a hint as to what hands the awards may find themselves in.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Travis Hafner posted the highest OBP in the AL while nobody noticed, while Neifi Perez ended up getting playoff PT. The young guns had their day and then some. Jermaine Dye gave a lengthy spanking to his 90th percentile PECOTA projection (PECOTA's .288/.359/.516 versus an actual .315/.385/.622). The crop of AL rookies included a guy with a 0.92 ERA finishing third, and rooks like Jered Weaver (105:33 K:BB) and Francisco Liriano (144:32) threatening to be Johan Santana's biggest challengers in 2007. The National League featured tighter races, including a four-way brawl for the Pitcher of the Year and another impressive crop of newbies.

Eight staff members weighed in on the season that was, casting their ballots for the Internet Baseball Awards. We summarized their findings below, and then let them have their individual say.

2006--Setting the Stage

0

Christina Kahrl

Christina has some thoughts on managers in general, and how five new managers may impact their club's chances in 2006.

One of the most interesting periods in a team's construction and development is that moment when a new manager takes over a ballclub. Although most new guys are always going to be selected to serve as the factotum of the club's general manager, some new managers are placed in the position to make decisions which fundamentally change the fortunes of the team and the players. Certainly, one of the most interesting periods in a fan's experience is getting to watch what happens to your team when a new manager comes in. Approaching the talent on hand with a fresh set of eyes, he goes to work on deciding who's going to play, who isn't, and who's on the way out.

It's particularly interesting watching to see which players end up making good impressions on the new boss. While stathead orthodoxy might insist on some of sort of performance evaluation-minded determinism, as much as performance matters, so do first impressions and fresh starts. There's nothing like a camp with a new manager for out-of-nowhere success stories, for organizational soldiers or minor league veterans who suddenly break through, and for opportunities given to players who were previously typecast, pigeonholed, or simply overlooked. A new manager has no particular loyalties: most of these guys haven't done anything for him before, if ever.
