Baseball Prospectus Loves LA!

Baseball Prospectus and the Los Angeles Dodgers invite you to join us for a great day of baseball on Saturday, April 26 at Dodger Stadium. Thanks to the fine folks in the Dodgers front office, we are proud to be able to offer our guests the following:

Breaking down the 2013 interleague schedule for all 30 teams. What teams are forced to deviate from their regular roster/lineup construction for the longest stretch of the year?

With the Astros finally moved into the American League, we have a very different interleague schedule this year. Not only does it mean that there is now at least one interleague series happening each day of the season, from April to October, it also means that the "rivalry weekends" that were the highlights of the interleague schedule fifteen years ago have been re-shaped. Additionally, the newly balanced divisions mean that, outside of the rivalry games, all teams in a given division can play the exact same teams as their divisional opponents. No longer do the schedule makers have to worry about a six-team division matching up with a four-team division.

So how did the schedule makers do? Did the schedule turn out as balanced as can be? Were they able to ensure that teams from any one division would have the same opponents as their division-mates? Were all clubs given the same number of interleague matches or did some lucky squad or two end up a series short? One thing to remember here is that, with interleague games happening all year long instead of on two or three specific weekends, clubs are now on unequal footing when it comes to setting their rosters for the change in league rules. If one team, for example, only ever has to worry about forcing their pitchers to hit one weekend a month, they are probably in a better situation than the club forced to suddenly remove their all-star DH for nine straight games. National League clubs playing in American League ballparks will have similar problems in trying to add a DH for extended periods of time.

A new beginning in Cleveland, Jon Lester's record-setting ways, and the Dodgers hope they've got a pretty Penny.

Patience in Wrigleyville, Milwaukee's strange brew afield, and too much of one fallen Angel in LA.

Playoff Prospectus: Dodgers vs. Mets

0

Jim Baker

Jim looks at how the most dominant team in the NL will deal with an offensively talented foe.

While the difference between the Mets and Dodgers isn't all that great, the gap between the Mets and Cardinals is--unless Los Angeles feared the possibility of seeing Chris Carpenter twice in a short week. Probably, there's no conspiracy here, and the Dodgers simply wanted to give their regulars a day off after they had clinched a postseason berth the day before. Still, with their number one starter shelved for the duration, the Mets do not appear to be as intimidating as a team that ran off with its division in June should be.

Baseball's Odd Couple

0

Jon Weisman

With the two LA franchises seemingly moving in opposite directions, Jon Weisman wonders just how divergent those directions are.

This new version of The Odd Couple isn't really going to air (though similarly strange things happen every day), but the narration taps into a common feeling concerning the direction of Los Angeles' two major league baseball teams.

The Dodgers are the Felix Ungers--well-pedigreed, stylish if you don't mind the occasional ascot, but increasingly oblivious of their own flaws. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, as they have come to be known with growing acceptance, were the Oscar Madisons--until they somewhat startlingly cleaned the mustard off their plaid sport coats and became winners.

The Dodgers go a long way for some bench help, the Twins go deep into their pockets for a starter, and the Giants go anywhere but their farm system for hitters.

The Dodgers and Giants start bringing in some reinforcements, while the Twins work to keep what they already have.

Ricciardi), DePodesta's decisions have been scrutinized more than most, with traditional media, casual fans and even statheads ridiculing, scratching their heads, or just plain struggling to keep up. A quick look at some of these signings:

Angels in America

Neil deMause

What's the thinking behind the Angels' name change? And will anyone actually use the new name?

Swirl that around in your mouth a few times. Now spit.

As p.r. moves go...well, let's just say that Arte Moreno should be hoping that there's truth in the old canard about "there's no such thing as bad publicity," because that's the only kind he's getting right now. Though you'd think Angels fans would be inured to name changes by now (as one friend of mine remarked, "Don't they just buy blank caps and a dry-erase pen, anyway?"), the response from much of Angel fandom is as if Moreno had disemboweled the Rally Monkey and posted its head on a pike atop the Big A. The most popular sentiment on ESPN.com's Angels message board is, and I quote, "this is retarded"--though a few Halo rooters are apparently holding out hope that a doofy name will be worth it if it provides the cash to land, say, Carlos Beltran.

All three teams are being re-shaped by the free-agent market.
