Don't stop believing in the AL Central, the Orioles' annual late-season wing-clipping, and instant replay on the job.

White Sox skipper Ozzie Guillen was chatting with a group of reporters this past week, when the talk turned to analyzing the remaining schedules of the two contenders in the American League Central. Some felt that the Sox had the easier path to winning their first division title since 2005, a season in which they also won their first World Series since 1917. Others believed that the Twins had the clearer path to a second AL Central crown in three years.

Every Given Sunday: Deadline Day Afters

John Perrotto

Dread reduction in LA, Ichiro really does have 3,000 hits, plus rumblings and news from around the leagues.

There has rarely, if ever, been a more active July when it comes to trading. The Indians began the flurry of activity before the July 31 deadline by shipping left-hander and reigning American League Cy Young Award-winner CC Sabathia to the Brewers on July 7 for a package of four prospects. The Athletics sent Rich Harden to the Cubs a day later, and before the month was over other notable names such as Joe Blanton, Ray Durham, Randy Wolf, Jon Rauch, Xavier Nady, Casey Blake, Mark Teixeira, and Ivan Rodriguez were on the move.

Prospectus Matchups: Late Standing Starts

Jim Baker

Which teams have scored the most runs after breaking free from nearly being no-hit?

Yesterday afternoon, David Bush of the Brewers no-hit the Blue Jays through seven innings. He gave up a leadoff triple to Lyle Overbay to start the eighth, and Overbay scored on the very next play when Alex Rios singled. Bush finished the inning, leaving the game with an 8-1 lead. He then had to watch as Toronto tagged the Milwaukee bullpen for six runs in the top of the ninth, including a home run by Overbay and a grand slam by Joe Inglett. The game ended with the tying run on first.

Every Given Sunday: Chasing Four-Tenths

John Perrotto

Chipper Jones has a magical number next to his name, which hasn't been seen at the end of a full season in over sixty five years.

Sabermetric study has long ago proven that batting average is not one of the better indicators of a player's offensive prowess. On-base percentage, slugging percentage, and a host of other, more advanced metrics paint a clearer picture. A look at Chipper Jones' OBP, SLG, and EqA shows the venerable Braves third baseman is off to an outstanding start this season. Jones' 1144 OPS and .389 EqA are both second in the major leagues to the Astros' Lance Berkman (1243, .393), while his .459 OBP and .685 SLG are both third.

The past might be a foreign country, but at the moment, where 756 is concerned, we're still well within its borders. What does the gang think of Barry Bonds' achievement?

---

Maury Brown : There ought to be one word that comes to mind when taking in Bonds' place as the all-time home run king. Maybe that word is 'confused.' Or cloudy, muddy, murky... take your pick. In the history of sports, I don't think anyone has ever faced the dilemma of asking whether or not a record was legitimately set or not. Barry Bonds has forced us to look at that issue with arguably the most revered and sacred of records in baseball. After all, the record has been achieved, and controversy be damned, he hasn't failed a drug test, nor has he been indicted by the Feds, nor has some mountain of evidence landed in George Mitchell's lap that makes one think that Bonds is going to be the focus of his soon-to-be published report.

Could a Donaghy scenario happen in baseball?

Baseball must be toasting this week's sports pages over glasses of vodka and schadenfreude. Last Friday, NBA referee Tim Donaghy was implicated in a betting scandal. On Wednesday, Tour de France leader Michael Rasmussen, under heavy suspicion of doping, was kicked out of the race by his own team. And on Thursday, Michael Vick was scrambling away from reporters in a federal courthouse, rather than opposing linebackers on the field.

Prospectus Q&A: Dan Levitt

David Laurila

David interviews the Deadball Era expert on soggy baseballs, triples, the Baker Bowl, and much more.

The "Deadball Era" stretched from 1901-1919, and it was a time when batters stretched double into triples, and triples into inside-the-park home runs more often than they hit balls over the fence. Teams bunted. They utilized the hit-and-run. They stole a lot of bases. It was a style far different than what many of today's statistically-savvy fans consider "smart baseball." However, given the many factors that generated that style of play, was it smart baseball in its time?
