Purpose Pitches: Farrell, Mattingly, and Roenicke

6

Christina Kahrl

Baseball's trio of dugout noobs have followed very different paths to their skippering slots, but what does the future hold?

Yesterday's column and my comments about the increasing importance of staff management are my cue to touch on what we do know about the three genuinely new skippers. The first of them is an ex-pitcher with no managerial experience, but someone who will be coming to the job with plenty of management experience.

Blue Jays: John Farrell

The two former Yankees' managers had more in common than you would think.

It was more than a baseball season that passed into yesterday last weekend, a lot more, as Joe Torre’s managerial career came to an apparent end.

He finished it in Dodger blue, but when they put the plaque up in Cooperstown he’ll be wearing pinstripes and the familiar interlocked NY on his cap. One can only hope that Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson, himself a former Yankees public relations director, can find a way to position Torre next to Casey Stengel.

On the Beat: Raising Arizona

John Perrotto

Kevin Towers looks to build the Diamondbacks into a contender, along with other news and notes from around the majors.

When Kevin Towers looked at the Diamondbacks he didn't see a franchise that has already clinched a second straight last-place finish in the National League West. Nor did he see a franchise that won the division with a young nucleus three seasons ago and seemed ready to dominate the division only for everything to start going wrong.

The Pirates are encouraged by the performance of four youngsters in their lineup, along with other news and notes from around the major leagues.

The Pirates are approaching the end of another dismal season. They are assured of finishing below .500 for an 18th consecutive year, extending their North American major professional sports record. They find themselves 33 games off the pace of the first-place Reds in the National League Central.

The notable quotables from the year that was.

SOMEHOW THIS PART OF THE YANKEE VICTORY PARADE HAS FADED FROM MY MEMORIES

"I knew I wasn't taking Tic Tacs. I knew it was something that could perhaps be wrong."
-Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, during his press conference in spring training to address steroid allegations.

Prospectus Today: Outskipper'd

54

Joe Sheehan

The Phillies can take pride in execution, of the Dodgers, on the field, and in the dugout.

It continues to surprise me that we can't get deep into a postseason series despite having evenly matched teams battling each other. The Phillies and Dodgers were the top two teams in the NL this year, and statistically, there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between them. In the NLCS? There was a hundred-dollar bill's difference. The Phillies outscored the Dodgers 35-16. They out-hit them by 60 points of OBP and 140 points of slugging. The Phillies drew 23 walks to the Dodgers' 12, with the converse of that being that their pitchers had a stellar 33/12 K/BB ratio to the Dodger pitchers' much uglier 33/23. The Dodger bullpen was supposed to be its one big edge: it allowed 14 runs in 21 innings, with a catastrophic failure in Game Four and a poor performance in a winnable Game Five.

Prospectus Hit and Run: Left Too Long

3

Jay Jaffe

The first game of the NLCS left plenty for statheads and analysts to be humbled about.

Clayton Kershaw wasn't ready for his close-up. Tabbed to start the opening game of the National League Championship Series, the 21-year-old Dodger lefty dazzled for the first four innings, holding the Phillies to a single and a pair of walks while striking out two, at times flashing the big-bending curve that Vin Scully termed "Public Enemy Number One" before the kid even had a day of major league service. Alas, he came unraveled in the fifth inning, and it was excruciating to watch.

Playoff Prospectus: Dodgers versus Cardinals LDS

Jay Jaffe

Two of the all-time greats in the dugout square off with the benefit of some of two of the most famous sluggers on the field.

Were it not for a 2-8 swoon over the Cardinals' final 10 games, the NL Division Series matchup between the Dodgers and the Cards could lay claim to pitting the team with the hottest first-half record (the blue team) against the one with the hottest second-half record (the red team). As it is, St. Louis still won the Central by the largest margin of any NL division champion (7 games), turning what was once a crowded four-team race into a laugher thanks to some timely in-season upgrades, most notably the July 24 trade which brought Matt Holliday from Oakland-a point after which the Cards did have the league's best record (39-25).

On the Beat: Weekend Update

John Perrotto

Getting enough pitching while having enough offense in Tinseltown, setting the changing of the guard in Atlanta to a timetable, plus news and views from around the game.

When Joe Torre began his managerial career 33 years ago, he did not believe in the old baseball adages about good pitching always beating good hitting, pitching winning championships, and pitching being 80 percent of the game. Torre believed hitting was equally as important as pitching. That was understandable, considering that Torre was quite the hitter during an 18-year career that spanned from 1960-77, as he had .297/.365/452 slash stats with a .298 career Equivalent Average and 252 home runs in 2,209 games.

Prospectus Hit and Run: Popping the Lidge Early

8

Jay Jaffe

Two managers managing, two deviations from the standard, and the mixed results.

Prior to Monday night's Game Four of the National League Championship Series, I noted the contrast between the two teams when it came to deviating from standard closer usage. Dodgers manager Joe Torre has shown a penchant for calling upon his closer in the eighth inning when the situation merits it, a tendency that dates back to the days of Mariano Rivera putting championship rings on his fingers, while Phillies manager Charlie Manuel has stuck to a strict ninth-inning usage plan this year. The two teams deviated from the script in Game Four, with results that may have turned the series decisively in the Phillies' favor.

Prospectus Today: NLCS Game Two and ALCS Game One

11

Joe Sheehan

The Phils went up the escape hatch and sent LA down the rabbit hole, while the Red Sox shoved the Rays toward the wall.

I just want to remake the point that these League Championship Series have the potential to be the most interesting and entertaining post-season series we've seen in a long time. Even though one of the matchups is at 2-0 already, it's provided one close game, and another that gives us plenty to talk about.
