Transaction Analysis: Off-Brand Bargains

Two teams commit less cash and fewer years by avoiding bigger names, as the Reds ink Ryan Madson and the Rays sign Luke Scott.

Fantasy Beat: The Future of Luke Scott

12

Jason Collette

Jason looks at Luke Scott's hard-luck 2011 season and where he may end up this off-season.

If you ever doubted the existence of karma, look no further than Luke Scott. Scott was coming off a career year age 32 in Baltimore in which his slash line was .284/.368/.535 with a WARP over 3.2. He was nearly traded during the trade deadline last season, but the Orioles kept him and retained him during the off-season for $6.4M to avoid arbitration, settling halfway between the club's tendering offer and the Scott camp’s offer to the arbiter. That contract was the good news in an off-season in which Scott gained a lot of press with his rather infamous interview with Yahoo's Dave Brown at the Winter Meetings at Walt Disney World. I was at those meetings and watched the interview happen and could see Brown reacting to some of the comments that were made by Scott, though at the time I couldn’t hear what they were. When Brown walked by our table and we asked him how the interview went, he said it was “alright; didn't get much.”  Lesson learned—do not play poker with Dave Brown.

Fantasy Focus: Left Fielder Rankings

Marc Normandin

Some of your league's strongest offensive options may come out of left field.

These are the left fielder fantasy rankings for 2011. Check out our previous first base, second base, third base, shortstop, catcher, and closer installments.

Fantasy Beat: Scott Out And A Second Helping Of Pie

1

Craig Brown

Felix Pie looks set to return to action as Luke Scott swaps places with him on the DL.

With word that Luke Scott is likely to miss a couple of weeks after injuring his hamstring while running the bases on a home run trot, it looks like the Orioles will activate Felix Pie a little earlier than anticipated.

Pie had been on a minor league rehab assignment as part of his recovery from a torn muscle in his upper back.  On assignment, he has hit .379/.438/.414 in seven minor league games.  Earlier on Wednesday, Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said he would remain on his rehab assignment for “a few more games.”  Hours later, with Scott hurting, Pie was moving stuff back into his locker at Camden Yards.

Michael Street sifts through potential DHs to add to the Value List, and drops off two corner infielders.

Our first ex-Value Pick has been at the top of the list, at least alphabetically, since Day One. Daric Barton broke his right middle finger on April 25, and he’s played through it, but maybe he shouldn't have, as he's hit just .221/.289/.368 since then. His strikeout rate rose to 22% over that span (vs. 20% in his career) and his walk rate fell to 9% (13% career); neither are good signs. As I warned last week, Barton was on the edge, and even his second dinger of the season couldn’t rescue him from the cut list after another subpar week.

At the other end of the spectrum, Troy Glaus has hit so well that owners have finally taken notice. A week when he exploded for a .368/.478/.737 slash line caught the attention of enough ESPN owners to drive his ownership to 29% and bump him off the list.

Second-Half Prescriptions

20

Baseball Prospectus

An Rx for each of the 14 teams of the junior circuit to cure whatever ails them.

AL East-Steven Goldman

Boston Red Sox: The Sox have resources they've not yet availed themselves Clay Buchholz has excelled at Triple-A Pawtucket this year while the big-league club has seen Daisuke Matsuzaka struggle to get his ERA below 8.00 and rehabilitate 42-year-old John Smoltz. Buchholz is coming up on a temporary basis after the break, but if the Sox gave him more rope they might find they have less need to heal up those struggling veterans; alternatively, promoting Buchholz could give them the flexibility to deal Brad Penny, perhaps to the Brewers. Fine-tuning might include acquiring a catch-and-throw reserve backstop; both Jason Varitek and George Kottaras have thrown out fewer than 20% of attempting basestealers, a bad weakness to have when you're in the same division as Carl Crawford, B.J. Upton, and Brett Gardner.

Schrodinger's Bat: Wrapping it Up

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

Wait 'Til Next Year: Reviewing the '07 CWS Slate

0

Bryan Smith

What does the future hold for the eight teams who made it to Omaha last year?

In the three weeks we have left before the college baseball season begins, it's time to turn our attention to the teams most likely to vie for this year's championship. To start that process, let's being with a progress report on the eight teams that were in the hunt for last year's championship at the College World Series. Omaha in 2007 was scene one of the most unlikely combinations of Cinderella stories the CWS has ever seen, so it was only fitting for Oregon State to make the glass slipper fit again in a successful title defense. It's hard to imagine Omaha this year featuring all eight of last year's teams back, because as you will see each team is facing some pretty big hurdles this spring.
