Rubbing Mud: The Early-Season Odds Changers

11

Matthew Trueblood

The first week of the season is overrated, overanalyzed, overdiscussed--and, also, enough to move the odds significantly.

Prospectus co-founder Joe Sheehan often says that fans would be better served by baseball writers if they all put down their pens and pushed away from their keyboards from Opening Day until Memorial Day. Rany Jazayerli—another co-founder—ran a three-part study back in 2003 that provides some objective support to that subjective statement: it takes about 48 games for a team’s seasonal performance to become more predictive of their final record than a simple blend of their three previous seasons’ records, and a regression factor. After 10 games, that rough preseason projection is still more than six times as predictive of final record as actual performance is.

Joe isn’t wrong, and Rany’s math wasn’t, either. We have some tools that change the way we perceive the early segment of the season, though. For one, we have PECOTA, which was just making its maiden voyage through April when Rany wrote up his study. For another, we have the Playoff Odds Report, which uses PECOTA and a Monte Carlo simulation that repeats the season thousands of times to give us an estimate of the chances that each team will make it to the postseason.

How the Marlins aggressively promote prospects who have minimal minor-league experience.

Every day until Opening Day, Baseball Prospectus authors will preview two teams—one from the AL, one from the NL—identifying strategies those teams employ to gain an advantage. Today: how production comes from unexpected places for the Orioles and Marlins.

The Phillies second baseman could be traded, while the Rangers might look to Florida for pitching.

Chase Utley “easily attainable” for teams willing to pay salary
It’s no secret that the Phillies have begun to build toward the future. They’ve already traded away veterans Jimmy Rollins, Marlon Byrd and Antonio Bastardo this offseason. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. publicly voiced the organization’s desire to part ways with Ryan Howard and is reportedly willing to eat $50 million of the remaining $60 million owed to the declining first baseman over the next three seasons. And while nobody has been willing to meet the Phillies asking price for either Cole Hamels or Jonathan Papelbon this offseason, the endless stream of trade rumors surrounding the two hurlers will surely continue through July.


But the move that would truly signal a new era in Philadelphia—at least symbolically—would be the departure of Chase Utley. Before DL stints became a yearly ritual for Utley, he perennially performed at an MVP-caliber level and helped lead the Phillies to five straight NL East crowns and a World Series title in 2008. On Saturday, Alden Gonzalez, who covers the Angels for MLB.com, tweeted that he’s been hearing that Utley is “easily attainable” if a team is willing to take on his contract.

Transaction Analysis: Marlins, and Yelich, Commit

Miami extends the second corner of its outfield. Also: Rafael Furcal hangs around, and the Blue Jays call the Wolf.

A look at ever-increasing player salaries and the player best-positioned to eclipse the $300 million mark

Giancarlo Stanton got his first at-bat of the spring Thursday, making him the first $300 million ballplayer to step onto a major-league field. (Whether he opts out midway through that contract is an open question, but no matter.) Three years ago, when we were still stuck at $275 million, Maury Brown wondered who would be the first player to break that threshold.

Can you figure out how Jordan Zimmermann undid Christian Yelich's extreme approach?

The last time Jordan Zimmermann faced Christian Yelich, Steven Souza became famous. The 17 other times they met in 2014 proved less prosperous for backup outfielders (and search-engine optimizers), but were kind to Zimmermann in another way. While Zimmermann didn't shut Yelich down (though he held him to an OPS 40 points below his seasonal norm), he accomplished a feat nearly as noteworthy: He caused Yelich to pull the ball seven times. That's more than anyone else managed last season.

The Reds apparently will pass on the former White Sox slugger, while the Marlins are sniffing Frankie Rodriguez.

Reds considered, likely to pass on Dayan Viciedo
Power hitters can be hard to come by these days, so players who crank 21 homers and collect 46 total extra-base hits don’t often get released the following winter. Dayan Viciedo, who on January 12th agreed to terms with the White Sox on a $4.4 million salary for 2015, became a rare exception to that rule just 26 days later. Chicago ultimately decided to cut him loose and pocket most of the money, save for the $721,311 in termination pay that Viciedo is still owed.

The Mets could be set to go with what they've got at shortstop, while Ichiro Suzuki could be preparing to answer the age-old question, "what would Ichiro look like in a Marlins uniform?"

Mets expected to enter camp with Flores as starting shortstop

Rumor Roundup: A Monster Myers Move?

Chris Mosch

Are the Tampa Bay Rays really on the verge of moving Wil Myers with five years of control left? Also, Seattle is close to a big move and the addition of Michael Morse makes a Marlin available.

­­­­Wil Myers on his way out of Tampa Bay?

In case this offseason hasn’t already provided enough excitement and movement on the trade market, we’ve got the latest potential blockbuster trade to hit the rumor mill:
