Prospectus Hit and Run: The Pitchers

10

Jay Jaffe

Wrapping up the JAWS rankings for this year's Hall of Fame eligibles.

Finally, we come to the pitchers on the BBWAA ballot for the Hall of Fame, a mercifully short list this time around, featuring four holdovers and three newcomers. Among this group, Bert Blyleven is the standout, and while he's certainly no lock to gain election this time around, he jumped to nearly 62 percent in last year's vote, suggesting that the work done by statheads here and elsewhere to boost his candidacy is finally getting through to the voters.

Player Profile: John Buck

Marc Normandin

The Royals catcher is starting to make the Carlos Beltran trade sting a little bit less for Kansas City fans.

Despite another poor start in Kansas City-Joe Posnanski has already written his annual end of the season column for the Royals-there are a few bright spots on the team. Gil Meche has managed to pitch much more effectively than many analysts thought he would-more on that in a future profile-and John Buck has seemingly secured the catcher's job, despite the offseason acquisition of Jason LaRue. Buck has hit .299/.398/.588 to open the season, and although he has slowed down a bit in May after a torrid April, he finally looks like the hitter the Royals expected back in 2004 when they traded for him.

Schrodinger's Bat: The Price of Contentment

Dan Fox

Dan looks at double steals from every conceivable angle, inspired by a wacky quadruple steal from the pages of Retrosheet.

"He told me the rule book doesn't specifically cover that situation. He said you've seen one of the most unusual plays in baseball."
--Official scorer Randy Minkoff, recounting his conversation with Seymour Siwoff about the Cardinals "quadruple steal" in August of 1985, as recorded by Retrosheet

Two, two, two bags in one! How do managers employ this high-reward tactic?

"When we spoke at the end of the year, I felt like he wanted to be back here. Not only does he like it here, he has the faith we will get better."
--Jim Hendry, general manager of the Chicago Cubs, on signing third baseman Aramis Ramirez to a new five-year deal. (ESPN.com)

8:00: I'd like to leave out the now-traditional Zelasko-bashing, but her hair is hypnotic. She looks like Jack Kirby's Medusa. You know, from the old Fantastic Four comic books.
