Winter League Preview

5

Carlos J. Lugo

A preview of the Dominican Winter League, taking a look at the teams, stadiums, managers, and players to watch for.

The "National Religion" came back on October 16th, as the Dominican League launched its 56th edition. Reliably praised as having the highest level of talent among the winter leagues, one should expect to watch another mix of highly ranked prospects, mid-level major leaguers, a few recognizable American players, veterans looking for another shot, and some major league stars between now and the end of the Caribbean Series in February. The league format has six teams playing a 50-game regular-season schedule, with the four best records advancing to a long 18-game round-robin playoff, and the two remaining best clubs play a best-of-nine final series to decide the league's champion. Without further ado, here's what this season will bring us:

Tigres del Licey (Licey Tigers)
Home: Santo Domingo
2008-09 record: 26-24, fourth place (tied) regular season; 12-6, first place round-robin; beat the Gigantes in the final series 5-0.
Ballpark: Estadio Quisqueya; strong pitcher's park, with a Park Factor of 92.

Playoff Prospectus: ALDS Game Three, Red Sox versus Angels

3

David Laurila

The chatter before, during, and after the game that eliminated the Red Sox from the postseason and put the Angels in the LCS.

When Terry Francona addressed the media on Saturday afternoon, he had the following to say about the noon start time for Sunday's ALDS Game Three: "We'll show up tomorrow and do what we always do on early games, have 12 pieces of bacon, a Red Bull, and go get 'em." The game proved to be a good one, and over the course of the day, a lot of opinions were offered both on the field, during batting practice, and in the press box as the Angels and Red Sox did battle. Here is a sampling, from mid-morning until moments after the Angels' thrilling come-from-behind 7-6 victory-courtesy of a three-run ninth-that eliminated Boston from post-season play:

Playoff Prospectus: Angels versus Red Sox LDS

7

Christina Kahrl

It's a fourth spin in six years for these two teams, but will the outcome change this time around?

Well, this certainly seems familiar. One of the reliable features of a divisional playoff slate that involves twice as many ballclubs and wild-card teams makes for a few rematches, so it's not too much of a surprise that we get to see the Red Sox and Angels square off for a fourth time in six years in October. Perhaps it's the easy isolation of living in the Midwest, but there seems to be little of the overwrought provincial self-absorption for Angels fans, where they might deserve to be filled with equal parts trepidation and anticipation. Where the hysterics of Red Sox Nation would treat three series losses to the same opponent in five years in October-the very same opponent from the epic '86 ALCS no less-there seems to be no such elaborate attention devoted the equally desperate concerns of Angels fans for having to be the ones who have seen their team fight and falter before the Red Sox in those three LDS matchups. It can't be taken as too much of a surprise; no doubt there are Rangers fans still bitter over how their team was squashed thrice in four seasons by the Yankees in the late '90s, and no doubt Yankees fans, those East Coast sophisticates, were like so many crushers and enjoyed the stomping, and Red Sox fans are no doubt no different when it comes to their post-season entertainments.

Prospectus Today: Veering to the Left

25

Joe Sheehan

A pair of big signings should get the Angels back in charge of their own destiny while crowding the Nats' roster beyond any easy solution.

February 11 may have been the strangest day in what has been an extraordinary baseball winter. On that day, Adam Dunn and Bobby Abreu signed contracts that will pay them less guaranteed money, combined, than Raul Ibaez will earn with the Phillies in a deal he signed just three months ago.

Schrodinger's Bat: Wrapping it Up

0

Dan Fox

Putting the finishing touches on the better (fielding) mousetrap.

"Baseball is Darwinian in its results but Newtonian in its processes. With rigorous empiricism fielders built up a solid foundation of knowledge through generations of trials and thousands of errors. Their peer-reviewed results quickly became standard operating procedures."
--Cait Murphy, describing the evolution of defensive play in Crazy '08: How a Cast of Cranks, Rogues, Boneheads, and Magnates Created the Greatest Year in Baseball History
