Kiss'Em Goodbye: Cleveland Indians

13

Steven Goldman, Kevin Goldstein and ESPN Insider

The Indians rolled the dice on Ubaldo Jimenez and must now fill holes for 2012.

Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fadewhether in September (or before), the league division series, league championship series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski, and Kevin Goldstein's farm-system overview.

Expanded Horizons: No Walk in the Park

0

Tommy Bennett

Tommy looks at the difficulty in improving one's control but three pitchers who have managed to do so thus far in 2011.

Just throw a strike, for the love of all that is good and holy. Surely you’ve thought this after you team’s pitcher walks the third guy in an inning. Just throwing strikes seems like the easiest way in the world to win. If only these bums would challenge hitters in the zone they might be able to limit the damage, pitch deeper into games, and eat more innings. But dumping walks by increasing control is one of those “good work if you can get it” type of situations. For every Brad Radke there are three Daniel Cabreras waiting in the wings.

On the Beat: Sad Sox

8

John Perrotto

Boston's 0-4 start hasn't led to panic in the Red Sox clubhouse, but Carl Crawford and Co. hope the schneid ends soon.

CLEVELAND—An 0-4 start would not be cause for huge concern for most franchises in most markets. However, the Red Sox are not a normal franchise, and Boston is not a normal market.

Overthinking It: Small Samplings of Spring, AL Edition

7

Ben Lindbergh

Running down the American League's best candidates to benefit from hot spring starts.

We’re all aware that spring training stats wouldn’t get much attention in an ideal world, since a player’s extended record of prior performance in the minors and/or majors allows for far more accurate forecasts than a month’s worth of playing time against mixed competition in March. (If you don’t believe me, look no further than this recent dispatch from Florida: “Cards’ Lohse goes six scoreless.”) Still, we know from past experience that some small-sample heroics will have implications for games that count; superior production—as well as glowing scouting reports—in the Grapefruit or Cactus League can impress a manager more easily than a good month for a far-flung minor-league affiliate, enabling a player on the bubble to earn a place (or a more prominent role) on the big club’s roster.

As I write this, Melky Cabrera and Ryan Roberts lead their respective leagues in batting average, and Luke Hughes and Danny Espinosa are the latest word in RBI men, as effective a reminder as any that the clean slate of April is still a few weeks away. That said, the exhibition schedule is half complete; the first round of cuts has already been made, and coaching staffs and front-office executives are meeting at regular intervals to ruminate on their rosters’ composition come Opening Day. Which performances to date by players who came into the spring on shaky ground have stood them in good stead for 2011? Today I’ll tackle the AL, highlighting one batter and one pitcher per team, before turning to the NL representatives later this week.
