The tater trots for May 18: only eleven home runs around the league; the Chicago/Florida matchup had three of the best.

Another day of little offense around the league. As many have said today, Wednesday's 95 runs in 15 games played is the fifth lowest number of runs scored in a full-slate of games since the league went to thirty teams. Mostly that's just an interesting little factoid, but it does make a difference when talking about the number of home runs hit. There were only eleven hit around the league Wednesday night.

The action from Riggs' 2010 return to Wrigley evens the series.

CHICAGO—Another April ballgame, another venue, another city. It's a cold night in Lakeview, with the wind coming in from the north and the game-time temp in the low 40s. It's one of those nights when the hardy fans who come to Wrigley alternate beers and hot chocolate, as Kenny Kaduk detailed in his boozy ballpark bildungsroman, Wrigleyworld.

Changing Speeds: Marlon Byrd and the Price of Chemistry

16

Ken Funck

Sorting out the expense of making yesterday's problem somebody else's issue.

Over the years, baseball analysts of a statistical bent have worked hard to quantify many of the basic components of major-league success. Batting, fielding, pitching, baserunning, even managerial decisions-each have been broken down to their atomic ingredients and reassembled into metrics that best correlate to scoring or preventing runs, producing wins, and generating monetary value.

The White Sox unload a Kochian albatross. The A's wish they could do the same with half their pen. The Phillies flip their erstwhile center fielder the Byrd. These and other news and notes out of Chicago, Oakland and Philadelphia in today's Prospectus Triple Play.

  • Don't Let the Door Hit You: The White Sox have finally seen the light. The much maligned Billy Koch was dealt to the Marlins last week for Wilson Valdez who, for the purposes of the deal, may as well have been a bag of baseballs. Never an organization to stray too far from the mainstream, though, the Sox quickly announced that Shingo Takatsu has been named the new closer.
