Prospectus Hit and Run: Nomar and the Trinity

28

Jay Jaffe

The first member of the three great shortstops of the '90s calls it quits, but where does he stand historically?

Back in the mid-1990s, a trio of young shortstops burst onto the American League scene. Soon dubbed the "Holy Trinity," Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Nomar Garciaparra were part of an elite three-way positional rivalry not seen since the days that Willie, Mickey, and the Duke ruled the center-field scene in New York. The trio were heirs of a sort to Cal Ripken, Jr., who a generation earlier had opened up the shortstop position to bigger, more athletic and more offensively adept types, a development which played no small part in moving the game towards a higher-scoring era. Arguments raged over which of the three was superior, though they often came down to a choice between Rodriguez's video-game offensive totals and Jeter's championship rings, with Garciaparra's own merits somewhat lost in the fray. But no matter which dog one had in the hunt, for a few years it certainly seemed as though all three were racing towards Cooperstown.

Prospectus Hit and Run: Hall of Fame Cases for Outfielders

8

Jay Jaffe

Are Rock and Hawk Hall locks? The JAWS breakdown on which outfielders deserve to be busted.

Having addressed the hitters on the left and right sides of the infield in my previous two JAWS pieces, today it's time to tackle the outfielders on the 2010 Hall of Fame ballot.

The cases to make for the best on the ballot at first and second base.

The BBWAA Hall of Fame ballot has been out for a few weeks, and by now just about everybody who's got an opinion on the subject of which candidates are worthy of election has beaten the Christmas rush by weighing in on Rock, Hawk, Rik Aalbert, and friends. While the cabal which sent Jim Rice to Cooperstown last year might like to believe that I've told my spreadsheet to shut up, the reality-deadlines for this year's annual impeding my progress-is much more mundane. There's still time to beat the Christmas rush, however, so away we go.

Player Profile: Raul Ibanez

Baseball Prospectus

How much of the phree-agent phind's early-season slugging exploits have been matters of luck, or doing just enough?

Performance Analysis: While it was no surprise that Raul Ibanez would see a boost in production due to his move from the American League to the weaker National League, his first two-plus months have been far better than anyone could imagine. Ibanez' line stands at .322/.380/.678 with 22 home runs, just one fewer than he hit all of last year, and 11 off of his career high from 2006. Despite just turning 37 earlier this month, he is in the midst of the best season of his career, and would more than likely finish the year that way even if he reverted to his career norms from here on out. That last point is the central question regarding Ibanez though: What exactly is it that we should be expecting out of him at the plate for the remainder of the season?

Will the lefty-mashing Brewers match up well with Philly, or will Phillies firepower and a strong pen make all the difference?

Less than three weeks ago, the Brewers came to Philadelphia holding a four-game lead in the wild-card race and carrying the league's second-best record despite a slump that had seen them lose seven of 10 to open September. By the end of the four-game set, the two teams were tied for the wild card. It was the start of a finishing kick in which the Phillies went 13-3, breezing past the Mets to claim their second division title in a row.

The Class of 2008

JAWS gapes for the Hall candidacy of Tim Raines, but finds the other eligible outfielders not quite so tasty.

Picking up where we left off last week, we turn JAWS loose on the outfielders of the 2008 ballot, a mercifully smaller crop than last year's 13 outfielders, but one about which we have much to discuss.

They don't need Sister Sarah's mule to keep moving on up, but they're not the only improving SoCal squad.

Rany comes clean about an obsession with the knuckler, and his active interest in the best prospect to throw it in years.

It's no secret that I'm a fan of the knuckleball and the men who throw it. Among the many clues I have left in my wake, the most obvious is the time I ignored the objections of a fewokay, all of my colleagues, and attached Charlie Zink to the bottom of our Top 50 Prospects list three years ago. Fortunately, Zink has gone on to great and glorious success since then, completely vindicating my faith in him.
