Rubbing Mud: Closing the Lefty Disadvantage

5

Matthew Trueblood

A survey of the dominant offensive trends, and how they have held up this April.

These last few years, we’ve been living in a world of extremes. It’s not enough to say, as so many have, that scoring is at its lowest levels since the early 1990s. It’s not even enough to observe, as even more people have, that the scoring drought has been driven by the combination of record-high strikeout rates and record-low walk rates (walks were rarer in 2014 than in any season since 1968, and rarer than in any season between 1920 and that one). There are several fundamental things about the way offense worked for the last two decades that have not been true for the last two years.

Since 2012, we have seen unprecedented:

Rubbing Mud: So You Want to Trade Your Draft Pick

8

Matthew Trueblood

Is the recent trade of a draft pick from Baltimore to Los Angeles what they've been warning us about?

The Dodgers and Orioles made a peculiar trade last week. They swapped catching depth, the Dodgers tossed in an arm who suits Dan Duquette’s tastes well, and the Orioles sent back Ryan Webb and the 74th pick in June’s Draft. It’s a minor move, one R.J. Anderson covered well on Monday, if only in passing. I don’t want to spend forever picking apart this one transaction, because even though I find it almost unendingly interesting, I acknowledge that it is, objectively, boring.

As part of a larger conversation, though, I can stake a much stronger claim that you ought to pay attention to this move. Notably, this trade involved the Dodgers getting the Orioles’ competitive-balance pick this June. It’s the eighth trade that has involved this small class of tradable picks, and (maybe most notably, or maybe not) makes four such picks in this draft alone that have changed hands. There’s been some talk about that, but even more talk about the fact that the Dodgers appear to have more or less bought the pick from Baltimore. They released Webb shortly after acquiring him, effectively swallowing his $2.75-million salary as a way of paying for the pick outright. In fact, because they also gave more than they got in the details of the deal, we can say that they valued that pick at something around (or north of) $3 million. The Orioles must have valued it similarly, or the trade would not have shaken out the way it did: Baltimore would have held out for something better than Chris O’Brien and Ben Rowen, if they didn’t think the pick at least balanced out the money they saved by dealing Webb. Rowen is a strike-throwing righty with a platoon spl—

What You Need to Know: A Shift in Colorado

7

Chris Mosch

The Rockies get creative, the Dodgers get the first look at Kimbrel in a Padres uniform, and C.J. Wilson erases some memories.

The Tuesday Takeaway
By now it’s clear that defensive shifts have exploded in volume over the past few seasons. The total number of shifts in 2014 was nearly six times that in 2011, with teams like the Astros, Yankees, Pirates and Rays racing to the forefront of the sport’s latest trend. One laggard in the new shift-crazed world has been the Rockies, who finished dead last in shifts last season with 114, according to the latest Bill James Handbook. However, the Rockies might not be sitting in the shift cellar for much longer.

Lots of storylines on a day that hardly needs them.

The Monday Takeaway
The Red Sox tried during the past offseason to pry Cole Hamels away from the Phillies. They were willing to part with valuable assets to bring the left-hander to Boston. But players perceived by the front office as future cornerstones were off the table.
