Prospectus Q&A: Jim Palmer

12

David Laurila

The Orioles Hall of Famer discusses his contemporaries, solo home runs, commanding the strike zone, and... solo home runs,

A lot of great pitchers have worn an Orioles uniform over the years, but none have been better than Jim Palmer. Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1990, Palmer won 268 games over 19 seasons, winning 20 games or more eight times and twice leading the American League in ERA. Signed by Baltimore as an amateur free agent in 1963, Palmer made his big-league debut in 1965 and went on to play his entire career with the Orioles, pitching 3,948 innings and earning three World Series rings. In Game Two of the 1966 Fall Classic, Palmer became the youngest pitcher to throw a World Series shutout when he defeated Sandy Koufax and the Dodgers 2-0 at the age of 20. The winningest pitcher in team history, Palmer is currently an analyst for Orioles TV.

You Could Look It Up: Drowning in Drama

Steven Goldman

A long-ago titanic clash between the Phils and Dodgers, the likes of which may ne'er be seen again.

Monday night's Phillies-Dodgers National League Championship Series Game Four may go down as a classic confrontation between the two clubs, and a loss of historic proportions for the Dodgers. In one torturous half-inning, the Dodgers went from a likely win and a series that would go a minimum of six games to facing elimination in Game Five.

The NLCS features two evenly-matched clubs, but how the managers line up their rotations could make all the difference.

The Phillies claimed their second NL East title in as many years by embarking on a 13-3 tear to end the season, once again storming past a shell-shocked Mets club. They made short work of the Brewers in the Division Series, and come into the Championship Series with arguably the most potent lineup of any of the four remaining teams along with the top starting pitcher in Cole Hamels.

Every Given Sunday: Winding Down

John Perrotto

Possible changes coming in the GM landscape, the Astros are irked, and Cubs players envy how the other half lives.

A few months ago, it appeared that there would be wholesale changes made among major league general managers in the offseason, but now that no longer seems to be such a certainty. One team that will definitely have a new GM in 2009 is the Phillies, as Pat Gillick has already announced that he is retiring at the end of the season. It is conceivable, though unlikely, that the Phillies could be the only team to change GMs.

Prospectus Today: Brave New Problems

Joe Sheehan

Seeking relief for what ails them doesn't start in the bullpen.

One of the notions I've toyed with and dismissed over the years is finding the fulcrum point in a team's season, the point at which their championship hopes went south. For a team like the Royals or Nationals, that point comes as early as a key loss in April. For, say, the 2007 Mets, it would be Billy Wagner not coming out for the ninth inning, leading to a loss, or perhaps Tom Glavine's last-day implosion. You can usually even narrow it to a single play, or pitch.

Steven Goldman

Wrapping up the grand historical tour of the game's four-and-out championships.

Hurrying this series on World Series sweeps to its conclusion, rather than do all of the remaining sweeps at a minimal level of detail, what we'll do is stop well short of the present day, covering the sweeps that took place between 1950 and 1990 in depth, and leaving the sweeps by the mini-dynastic Yankees (1998 and 1999 over the Padres and Braves, respectively), the Epsteinian Red Sox (2004 and 2007, over the Cardinals and Rockies), and Ozzie Guillen's random-stroke-of-good-fortune White Sox (defeated the Astros, 2005) to your memories, and perhaps a later collection of articles.

Unlike the NLCS expansion-team tandem, in the AL, it's a classic confrontation between two of the original eight.

The Red Sox and Indians tied for the major league lead with 96 wins this year, but that doesn't mean these two teams are exactly equal. The Sox outscored opponents by 210 runs, the largest margin in the majors, and finished with a third-order projection of 103.2 wins. The Tribe's run differential was about half as large (107 runs), and their third-order projection of 88.2 wins suggests a good deal more separation between these two teams than meets the eye.

Prospectus Hit List: Season Wrap-up

It's the regular season's final iteration of Hit List greatness--who wound up on top, and who brought up the rear?

Can the Indians take the Bombers, or will baseball's best offense rock on?

A repeat of a matchup which produced some thrilling postseason baseball back in 1997 and 1998, this Divisional Series matches the American League's two hottest teams since the All-Star break, two teams that didn't earn their postseason berths until putting together a finishing kick that separated them from the rest of the pack. For the Indians, this marks a return to glory, their first division title since 2001 after a run in which they'd made the playoffs six years out of seven. For the Yankees, though their nine-year run atop the AL East came to an end, this marks their 13th straight postseason appearance, a streak that predates Joe Torre.

Strokes of tactical genius, roster design mishaps, and some flat-out brilliant pitching performances.

Three baseball games, five good to great starts, and just 14 runs scored, with the high mark being six. When you get this much starting pitching, it limits the amount of tactics displayed, and subsequently, the topics to write about. Let's go to the videotape…
