Playoff Prospectus: National League Wild Card Game (UPDATED)


R.J. Anderson

The Cardinals play the Braves in Atlanta for a spot in the Division Series

The last time the Cardinals met the Braves in the postseason, in 2000, St. Louis swept a three-game series by outscoring Atlanta 24-10. Only six players from that series remain active and two, Rafael Furcal and Chipper Jones, will attend this one. Fresher on the minds of both squads and their fans is what happened last year, when the Cardinals made a late-season surge and stole away the Braves’ postseason ticket on the season’s final night. Consider this Atlanta’s opportunity for revenge.

Mariano Rivera's injury isn't just a blow for the Yankees.

The Thursday Takeaway
Joe Blanton pitched a shutout for the Phillies. Bryce Harper drove home the game-winning run for the Nationals. The Royals won at home for the first time this season.

And none of it matters, because Mariano Rivera wrecked his knee. He did not slip off the mound. He was not scrambling to field a bunt. He did not trip while covering first base. Rivera was doing something else that virtually every pitcher does and that he has thoroughly enjoyed doing throughout his career: shagging balls during batting practice.

Player Profile: Kyle Lohse


Marc Normandin

This year's weak free agent class makes Lohse one of the more attractive options available. What can his new employer expect?

Who knew we would end up with a free agent market where Kyle Lohse was arguably one of the top five starting pitchers available? Lohse had a decent year-and-a-half run in the National League pitching in two hitter-friendly parks after persistent issues in the Junior Circuit--what can we expect from the former Twins prospect going forward now that he's available to all?

Breaking Out


Nate Silver


Last week, I provided a list of position player breakout candidates as identified by a Peter Gammons survey of major league scouts and executives, and evaluated them by means of our new projection system, PECOTA, which uses comparable player data to provide an objective estimate of the probability of a marked improvement in a player's performance.

In this article, I'll do the same thing for the pitchers that made the Gammons list. I've put the pitchers second for a good reason: It is much more difficult to isolate components of a pitcher's statistical record that imply that a breakout is likely. Certainly, pitchers can and do improve dramatically at almost any age throughout their 20s (Kevin Brown and Randy Johnson are two prominent examples), but they don't follow the same dependable age-related patterns of growth that hitters do, and the precursors that predict improvement are much more difficult to detect.
