Prospectus Toolbox: Is Moneyball Dead?

0

Derek Jacques

The retirement of a minor league catcher incites the revisiting of a now-infamous book.

The news that Jeremy Brown was hanging up his spikes due to "personal issues" made more of a stir last week than you'd expect from the retirement of a 28-year-old catcher who's spent the last two years in Triple-A. Our prospects expert, Kevin Goldstein, gave Brown an extremely evenhanded send-off over on Unfiltered; others have been less charitable, invoking imaginary choruses of scouts cheering the end of Brown's career. At least, I hope the cheering is imaginary: it'd take a Grinch-sized heart to rejoice in the end of someone's big-league dreams, unless their name is, say, Ben Christensen. The reason that Brown is the focus of such attention and schadenfreude is because the A's drafted him in the first round of the 2002 draft-an overdraft which, by itself, wouldn't be that noteworthy-and because Michael Lewis wrote a best-selling book which hailed Brown's selection as the bellwether of a new way of doing business, which the author dubbed "Moneyball" in the book of the same name. Apparently, those celebrating Brown's retirement are marking the occasion as the death of Moneyball acumen-a festive wake, with dancing and ironic toasts.

Player Profile: Eric Byrnes

Marc Normandin

Did the Snakes wind up with a star outfielder worth the extension they've given him, or is he exactly the player he's always been?

Eric Byrnes has been one of the bigger surprises of 2007, leading the Diamondbacks' offense as an important cog on their potentially playoff-bound club. After playing for three teams in 2005 and then having a solid debut campaign for the D'backs in 2006, Byrnes has played himself into a three-year extension worth $30 million. With the glut of outfield prospects in the Arizona organization, is Byrnes going to contribute enough to be worth the money or-perhaps even more cutting-the roster space?
