Pebble Hunting: The Other Thing About Petco

11

Sam Miller

If you want to make Petco more friendly to hitters, it's not enough to move the fences in.

There’s a story that has been told about Petco for years. It’s about a ballpark that was built too darned big. In this story, all the long fly balls get caught at the warning track. “You have to change completely there,” said Ryan Klesko at the beginning. “You have to take the loft out of your swing. Will they admit that they were wrong? No. Will they bring in the fences? No.” This is the story. This story may take a twist next year, as the team explores bringing the fences in. That should fix it!

Quietly, though, there has been another story playing out at Petco. It goes like this: the Padres’ hitters this year are the second-worst in the National League on balls hit on the ground. The Padres’ pitchers this year are the third-best in the National League on balls hit on the ground. This has been going on for years, and Ryan Klesko never said a freaking word.

Divide and Conquer, NL West: Home is Where the Wins Are (Not)

0

Geoff Young

Playing at Coors usually gives the Rockies a major advantage, but that hasn't been the case this year.

The Colorado Rockies aren't winning at home this year, and that is a problem. One of the franchise's trademarks in recent years has been the ability to dominate opponents at Coors Field (all numbers are through games of Sunday, June 26):

Manufactured Runs: Weight of the World

Colin Wyers

A first attempt at looking at offense and defense as a whole.

I’ve laid out the foundations for a new defensive metric (here and here). One thing that I’ve done is lay out an explicit margin of error for our estimates of defensive performance over a period of time.

In measuring offense, there are certain amounts of uncertainty as well, so we’re going to look at how to measure that. But first, we have to come to some agreement—or, barring that, a cordial disagreement—over what it is we’re measuring.

Prospectus Today: Outfield and Catcher Free Agents Review

Joe Sheehan

Sorting through the available mercenaries in the outfield and behind the dish.

There are lots of free-agent catchers and outfielders, many of whom provide little or no bang for the buck. Again, these players are listed roughly in order of what I see as their chance of providing value for the contract they'll sign.

Fantasy Beat: Coping with Swappery

Marc Normandin

The big-league deadline dealing was out of your control, but with some players in new venues, you may need to adapt and adjust.

The trade deadline can be an excellent or terrible day for fantasy owners, depending on how many of your players are moved and where. Maybe you get lucky and your ace pitcher with no run support is dealt to a team with an offense, or maybe a team with a terrible park for pitchers is desperate for an arm and acquires your guy. That was pretty rude of those general managers to swap your guys without your consent, but it's over now, and you need to figure out where to adjust.
