5 What You Need to Know: Jake! by Ian Frazer
It's been 15 years since Junior Guerra signed his first pro contract, and now he's contending for Rookie of the Year votes.
Colin Walsh picked the wrong time to draw walks, Edwin Jackson's out-making ability vanished, and Alex Guerrero bit off more than he could chew.
It takes a lot more than high draft picks to rebuild.
Correcting the extremes that populate draft analysis. Adam Wainwright is a exit-velo monster at the dish, Dallas Keuchel loses a streak, and Lorenzo Cain has a tough night.
The Monday Takeaway
For those who sought to go out on a limb with their World Series picks this spring, the Rangers represented an alluring dark horse. They were so alluring, in fact, that, at least in this neck of the woods, the horse in question wasn’t dark at all. Five BP’ers, including yours truly, pegged Texas to go all the way in 2016, giving ’s club more backing than any other except the Cubs. Jeff Banister
The Rangers had plenty going for them as a tempting pennant pick. They’d have a full season of
. They sported a breakout candidate in Cole Hamels . They’d added a cheap, high-upside bat in Rougned Odor near the end of the offseason. And, beyond all that, the injury-ravaged 2015 outfit had managed to win 88 games and the American League West. But, while I can’t speak for my colleagues, the determining factor behind my preseason vote was the potential for internal reinforcements to greatly bolster the roster midyear.

Since my last column, I have had many opportunities to celebrate during this young season:
is six for six in saves, and in his arb year no less; Jeremy Jeffress has finally found some stability, on the Mariners’ 25-man roster; Steve Clevenger is hammering for the Padres’ Triple-A affiliate, and seems to be right on the verge of making it. It’s been a nice season thus far, beginning with an odd day I spent in Arizona Carlos Asuaje . Read the full article... I mean, there have been two of them, so there you go. Meanwhile, David Price and Craig Kimbrel couldn't get it done, and Taylor Jungmann really couldn't get it done,
The Monday Takeaway
We’re but a week and change into the 2016 campaign, and already, the Phillies have had a season’s worth of misadventures with the infield-fly rule. Last Friday, seemed to forget what the rule means all together: Cesar Hernandez

"The game is becoming a freaking joke because of the nerds who are running it. I'll tell you what has happened, these guys played Rotisserie baseball at Harvard or wherever the f--- they went and they thought they figured the f---ing game out. They don't know s---.” – , Goose Gossage March 11, 2016. Read the full article... No, really: The Brewers added some guys.
Owner Mark Attanasio brought money and legitimacy to the when he purchased the club prior to the 2005 season. The franchise ended a 26-year postseason drought with a simultaneously tumultuous and heroic Wild Card berth in 2008, and three years later the Brewers won the NL Central for the first time in three decades. Throughout that time, Attanasio pushed for consistent contention, or at least consistent relevance, continuously trying to squeeze another year of 80-plus wins out of an aging core. Milwaukee Brewers

Keon Broxton emerging as possible center-field favorite in Brewers camp
The Brew Crew arrived in Arizona with a vacancy in center field, where once roamed before then-general manager Doug Melvin shipped him to the Astros at the 2015 trade deadline. At the time, now-GM David Stearns was in Houston, but since the Brewers hired him away in late September, it was Stearns’ job to fill the void created by his predecessor. And if Carlos Gomez Milwaukee Journal Sentinel beat writer Tom Haudricourt is reading the situation correctly, Stearns may have done so in a relatively nondescript December trade.
As Christmas approached, the Brewers struck a deal with the Pirates, sending first baseman
to Pittsburgh in exchange for two minor-leaguers: right-hander Jason Rogers and outfielder Trey Supak . The latter hit .273/.357/.438 in 133 plate appearances split between Double-A and Triple-A last year and has the athleticism to play up the middle, but with his 26 Keon Broxton th birthday looming in May, Broxton was running out of time to prove his major-league value. Now, his chance seems to have arrived. Read the full article...
The Brewers are looking for candidates for two positions.
Position: Developer – Baseball Systems Milwaukee Brewers
Location: Milwaukee Read the full article... Do those extra strikes come at a cost?
Okay, okay, we get it! Catcher framing is really superduper important. Getting an extra called strike can turn an at-bat, which can turn an inning, which can turn a game, which can turn a season, which can turn someone’s summer from one that they’d rather forget to one that they’ll write a bad novel about 20 years later.
