Some big-name prospects report to the farm for duty, the Fish search for a flycatcher, and the Nationals take their act off-Broadway in this edition of Transaction Analysis.

Kevin chronicles the minute-by-minute suspense of a postseason Game 7 as only he can.

7:02 p.m.: As a Mets fan looking for some reason for hope, it's interesting to note that every once in a while this year Oliver Perez pitched like Oliver Perez. In his fourth and final start for Triple-A Norfolk, he put up a 7.0 1 0 0 2 11 line, and he five-hit the Braves on September 6. There's something there and I agree with the decision to start him on a short leash with the other Oliver (Darren) having more experience coming out of the bullpen.

Our servers, like the Cardinals bullpen and the A's, crashed. Only two of those get to come back.

\nMathematically, leverage is based on the win expectancy work done by Keith Woolner in BP 2005, and is defined as the change in the probability of winning the game from scoring (or allowing) one additional run in the current game situation divided by the change in probability from scoring\n(or allowing) one run at the start of the game.'; xxxpxxxxx1161098296_18 = 'Adjusted Pitcher Wins.

NL Central rivals...err...acquaintances collide as the Pirates take on the Cubs in the Prospectus Game of the Week.

Of course there was more at stake Sunday than two teams fighting to see who finishes a distant second behind the Cardinals. The Pirates were taking the worst offense in the league into the game; averaging just three runs a contest, their futility offered the allure of plastic surgery gone horribly wrong (coming up next...on Fox!). Their lineup features more 100-somethings than a Matlock convention.

Derek Jacques looks at the battles for bench jobs on the Pirates and Marlins, and revisits a Yankee prediction that would make Nostradamus proud.
