Ahead in the Count: Park-Adjusted Slugging

23

Matt Swartz

Which ballparks give or take back extra bases on balls in play?

A few weeks ago, I introduced a new metric to evaluate team defense called Slugging on Balls in Play (SLGBIP), to be used in conjunction with Defensive Efficiency (DE) or Park-Adjusted Defensive Efficiency (PADE). The importance of this stat is that a simple consideration of how many outs a team makes does not entirely evaluate how well the team prevents runs. When we evaluate team offense, we consider team slugging more important than team batting average; if a team defense's only goal was to make outs, they would play their outfielders in and their corner infielders off the lines constantly. Since they do not, seeing how well they prevent extra-base hits is important as well.

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.

On the Beat: Reeling in the Marlins

36

John Perrotto

The sunny outlook in Florida, Midwest rivalries, plus news and notes from around the leagues.

The Marlins were considered an afterthought in the National League East when the season began. No one doubted that the Marlins would do what they normally do, scrapping and overachieving despite tight-fisted owner Jeffrey Loria saddling them with the lowest payroll in the major leagues at $36 million, and it seemed somewhat far-fetched to think that the Marlins could contend in a division that includes the defending World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies, the New York Mets with their revamped bullpen, and the Atlanta Braves with their new-look starting rotation.

Prospectus Hit and Run: Park Adjusted Defensive Efficiency

0

Jay Jaffe

Running out of PADE puns.

Last week, in my look at the Twins' rotation, I made reference to this year's Park-Adjusted Defensive Efficiency statistics, and noted that the Twins were dead last in the American League in that category. I've been meaning to devote a column to the topic for quite a while, so at long last, it's time to get PADE.

Lies, Damned Lies: Shrinking the Ballpark

0

Nate Silver

The venues are getting smaller, but is this really what's best, and what else can the industry add to the live experience?

Trivia question: Yankee Stadium seats 57,545 fans, which is presently the largest capacity of any park in Major League Baseball. When it closes this year, and is replaced by a ballpark that seats roughly 6,000 fewer fans, which facility will take its place as the largest stadium in MLB?

Wait 'Til Next Year: Fishing for Mediocrity?

0

Bryan Smith

The Marlins' mass acquisition of other people's pitchers hasn't delivered dividends in the last two and a half years.

In November 2005, the Marlins shed salary by trading Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell to the Red Sox for a package of Hanley Ramirez and three pitching prospects. The move set the tone for both the rest of that offseason and also the 25 months that have followed, leading up to dealing Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to the Tigers.

Marc Normandin

A slugging scion or an injury-prone first baseman on the wrong side of 30? Marc investigates.

Derrek Leon Lee, the nephew of former major leaguer Leron Lee, was drafted fourteenth overall by the San Diego Padres all the way back in 1993 at the age of 17. (On the random side of things, Derrek's father is Leon Lee, the scout who actually discovered Hee-Seop Choi. Choi and Lee were traded for each other prior to the 2004 season.) Lee had received a full scholarship to the University of North Carolina to play basketball, but instead chose to head straight to the minor leagues and try his luck at baseball, signing with the Padres and heading to the Arizona Padres for his professional debut:
