Tom Tango returns to answer your first batch of questions from last week.

Believe it or not, most of our writers didn't enter the world sporting an @baseballprospectus.com address; with a few exceptions, they started out somewhere else. In an effort to up your reading pleasure while tipping our caps to some of the most illuminating work being done elsewhere on the internet, we'll be yielding the stage once a week to the best and brightest baseball writers, researchers and thinkers from outside of the BP umbrella. If you'd like to nominate a guest contributor (including yourself), please drop us a line.

You asked, he answered. Below are the first batch of responses to the questions BP readers submitted for sabermetrician Tom Tango. All questions are presented in their original form.

Clay takes the field to get acquainted with the rules and regulations of your great-great-grandaddy's baseball.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

Revisit Clay's account of a trip back in time to baseball's formative years, which originally ran on October 26, 2006.

With less than a month to go until the draft, high school and college ballplayers are ramping up their games for top-20 consideration.

The top of the 2011 draft is certainly a lot more interesting to track than the previous two years. In 2009, Stephen Strasburg entered the year as one of the top college arms in baseball history, and then spent all spring proving why. Last year, it was the legend of Bryce Harper, one that only grew when he put up massive numbers as a 17-year-old in a junior college conference using wood bats. This year, we finally have fluctuation as to who will go first overall, and with less than a month to go, it's a wider race than ever.

What does the future hold for Derek Jeter, and how can we tell?

Before we can talk about Derek Jeter (and yes, I think there’s still something to say about Derek Jeter that you haven’t already heard this season), we should probably clarify which Derek Jeter we’re talking about. There really are two Derek Jeters—the one who exists in fact, and the one who exists in myth.

The actual Derek Jeter is interesting enough as a player that one wonders why the myth was necessary—always an exceptional hitter, Jeter has always been a player who could’ve had a job on any team in the league. He will go into the Hall of Fame on the first ballot, and nobody will bat an eye. Then there’s the Captain—the athlete whom ad agencies consider akin to Tiger Woods and Roger Federer. The player so exceptional that he can displace a generational talent like Alex Rodriguez from his natural position.

Purpose Pitches: NL NRIs of Note

3

Christina Kahrl

From the "they also played" gang, those few who have jobs to win and trips to Fresno to avoid.

Arizona Diamondbacks
Pitcher(s): Just 11 years, a bad press conference, and all sorts of money since he was last a front-end rotation asset, Mike Hampton is in camp. This has to be one of those bad-penny propositions, where everyone who operates a franchise has to take a turn paying for a Hampton surgery, otherwise you haven't really made the grade as an owner. And they've got Micah Owings back, four years since he gave the Snakes cause to believe he might be a rotation stalwart. Given that this is the team that puts Zach Duke or Hampton in cleats, what's several bad seasons in a row between friends?
Hitter(s): I already touched on the most obvious impact NRI, Russell Branyan, on Tuesday, but he's not alone. Wily Mo Pena makes for an interesting platoon possibility in left field with Brandon Allen if Kirk Gibson decides to build something that could bop. And we can always double-count Micah Owings, since he's one of the only active players who genuinely extends a roster to 26 by contributing as both a pinch-hitter—or maybe even a spot starter at first?—and as a pitcher.

Atlanta Braves
Pitcher(s): From the “necessary evils” pile, there are veterans Kenshin Kawakami and Rodrigo Lopez, both knocking around in case Mike Minor or Brandon Beachy can't keep the fifth slot in the rotation to themselves. If you prefer something younger with a better chance of being a long-term Brave, watching top prospect Julio Teheran and Vazquez robbery prize Arodys Vizcaino makes for a great way to pass the time.
Hitter(s): Nobody really stands out or figures to get an extended look-see; I don't think FEMA could clean up whatever mess would have to be made to get Brent Clevlen onto the Opening Day roster, for example.

Purpose Pitches: AL NRIs to Watch

6

Christina Kahrl

An assemblage of prospects, vagabonds, and tough-luck stories, but some are sure to stick.

Come the opening of every camp, there's always going to be some wiggle room for a non-roster player or two to make the club. But who has the best shot as we just get started, and/or who's worth noting for his own sake? Starting with the AL, let's look at the names you might want to note in the inevitable spring training boxscores and the equally inevitable camp rumors to come.

Baltimore Orioles
Pitcher(s): Opportunities already existed in the bullpen, but there may be more than one job to be won, especially with Alfredo Simon on the wrong side of the law and still locked up in the Dominican on an involuntary manslaughter charge. The pen could also use a second lefty better than Pedro Viola, while the rotation might need a long-relief helpmate until questions about Justin Duchscherer and Jake Arrieta are resolved (not to mention a slimmed-down Jason Berken). From among the NRIs, for situational duties Rangers castoff Clay Rapada could wind up getting taken seriously, while swing sponge Mark Hendrickson was born to absorb middle innings in lost causes or after quick hooks.

The former Red Sox ace and longtime pitching coach reflects on a lifetime in the game.

Bill Monbouquette is as old-school as they get. The 74-year-old “Monbo” spent 50 years in the game -- 11 as a big-league right-hander and many more as a pitching coach -- and few have been more hard-nosed. Three years after being diagnosed with leukemia, he remains every bit as feisty.

While the No. 1 prospect should be up again soon, most of the talent in the system needs considerable development time.

The Toy Cannon discusses baseball in the 1960s, hitting home runs in a big ballpark and some Hall of Fame teammates.

Jimmy Wynn is a humble man, and he is also one of the most underrated players in baseball history. Known throughout his big-league career (1963-77) as “The Toy Cannon,” the 5-foot-9, 170 pound outfielder was not only a prodigious power hitter in one of baseball’s worst hitting environments, he was an on-base machine who could run. Originally drafted by Cincinnati, he spent most of his career playing in the Houston Astrodome and finished with 291 home runs, 225 stolen bases, a .366 OBP, and a 128 OPS+.
