The tater trots for October 1: Miguel Cabrera closes the refrigerator door...

It was a busy, busy weekend. On Friday, Bobby Abreu set the Tater Trot Tracker record for slowest non-injury-related trot. Then, on Saturday, Michael Morse set a record of his own, with one of the most bizarre grand slam trots you'll ever see. Morse's trot is also (likely) the longest trot by distance-traveled you or I have ever seen.

There's no future for Matt Dominguez at third base in Miami, but the Marlins' former top prospect might still make another team happy.

The most immediately visible effect of Miami’s signing Jose Reyes to a six-year deal last December was that face-of-the-franchise shortstop Hanley Ramirez would be forced to another position. The Marlins were quick to clarify that Ramirez would not move to center field as some had speculated, but rather third base, where he would team with Reyes to give Miami one of the most potent left sides of the infield in the game. Less discussed was that Reyes’ arrival virtually closed the door on former top pick Matt Dominguez’s career in Miami, exactly three months after he’d made his major-league debut against the Mets.

It may seem like Dominguez has been around for ages, but the truth is that he won’t turn 23 until the end of August. The 12th-overall pick in the 2007 amateur draft, Dominguez was considered by some to be a “Scott Rolen starter kit” at third base, possessing acumen on the field and in the batter’s box that would enable him to serve as a franchise cornerstone for a decade or more. He and shortstop Mike Moustakas, taken second overall by Kansas City, became the second pair of high school teammates selected among the top 15 picks of the same draft.

Value Picks: First, Third, and DH for 9/16/11

Michael Street

One slugger arrives as another departs Michael's Value Picks list, where third basemen, late-season call-ups, and keeper options abound

Owners go two different directions in the final weeks of the season (actually, three, if you count those who are now obsessed with fantasy football, but they’re unlikely to be BP readers). One, they can throw in the towel and look to the future in keeper leagues; two, they can press on and try to finish in the money. You’ll find players for both directions in this week’s Value Picks list.

Reviewing the best and worst first-half position players on each team.

In the numerical sense, the halfway point of the season arrived about a week ago. However, the All-Star break marks the arbitrary end point of the first half, bringing a few days of festivities and vacations to the forefront. That period of inactivity in games that matter offers a window into the frozen stats for each team, allowing us to see who is leading the charge and who is failing the team so far. 

In order to determine who’s been naughty and who’s been nice, I’ll enlist the aid of the Wins Above Replacement metric. Next time, we’ll cover the pitchers, but for today, it’s all about the position players.

Pegging BP's favorites in both leagues, both in the standings and for the major awards.

Today we reveal the Baseball Prospectus staff predictions for the division standings and the major player awards  (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American and National Leagues. Each staff member's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division with first-place votes in parentheses, plus the results of our pre-season MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting. 

For the MVP voting, we've slightly amended the traditional points system in place that has been used elsewhere, dropping fourth- and fifth-place votes to make it 10-7-5 for the MVP Award, and the regular 5-3-1 for the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards (that's 5 points for a first-place vote, 3 points for a second-place vote, etc.). Next to each of these selections we've listed the total number of ballots, followed by the total number of points, and then the number of first-place votes in parentheses, if any were received.

Wrapping things up by running down the National League's best candidates to benefit from hot spring starts.

Picking up where we left off on Tuesday, let’s complete our circuit of the Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues by identifying some less established NL players who may have put themselves in stronger consideration for roster spots this season on the basis of small-sample spring performances thus far.

Arizona Diamondbacks

Future Shock: Monday Ten Pack

Kevin Goldstein

Matt Dominguez, out from under Mike Stanton's shadow, begins to shine at Jacksonville, along with other news from the minor leagues.

Tim Collins, LHP, Blue Jays (Double-A New Hampshire)

If you are not at the very least entertained by Collins, then something is very, very wrong with you. He's a lefty reliever who can get his fastball up to 94 mph with tons of deception, hasn't allowed a hit in his last four appearances, whiffed five of the 10 batters he faced over the weekend, and had struck out 53 in 31 1/3 innings overall while limiting Eastern League hitters to a .190 batting average. Oh, and he's just 20 years old. So why isn't he talked about among some of the top relief prospects in the game? Because he's 5-foot-7, that's why. Actually, that's his listed height, and most think it's a bit kind. Still, production is production, and he's clearly produced at every level, and I, for one, can't wait to see him in the big leagues.
