Battle of Champions

0

Dave Haller

With an assist from our friends at Diamond Mind Baseball, Bobby Valentine's dream of a Japan vs. United States World Series comes true. Dave Haller previews the upcoming battle.

As second-year manager of the Chiba Lotte Marines, Valentine guided his team to the Japan Series championship, toppling the favored Hanshin Tigers in a four-game sweep. (The Marines outscored Hanshin 33-4.) Meanwhile, some six thousand miles away, the Chicago White Sox were making quick work of the Houston Astros in the World Series. Valentine--the only manager to ever reach both the World Series and the Nippon Series, Japanese baseball's equivalent--was unimpressed. Boldly he called out whichever team should emerge as the Fall Classic champs.

"I can tell you the level of play is equal," Valentine told the Associated Press. "It's time to do battle."

Prospectus Today: Put the Checkbooks Away

Joe Sheehan

With $100 million worth of insanity behind us, and more to come, here's some advice for general managers throughout the game.

I count 197 major-league free agents, of which 173 appear to still be available. My recommendation is that none of them--none--should be signed.

Will's Mill: Getting Ready for Dallas

0

Will Carroll

In a winter that kicked off early with four major trades, the rumor mill is as active as ever.

There's one word that seems to keep popping up in the recent rumors, and that word is "reset." As in, "reset the market." The weak free-agent crop led first to a bunch of trades for premier players and a redistribution of two things that always have a market: big contracts and hot prospects. There figures to be more action before the Meetings and it could be that the Meetings themselves will be more active than they have been over the past couple years.

The White Sox win the World Series, the Astros wait until next year, Ozzie Guillen lives in a man's world, and Paul DePodesta is fired in L.A.

Players react to the officiating in the Angels-White Sox series, the coaching staff turnover begins, and White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is just...wow.

"He swung at the ball, and it was strike three. I caught the ball, so I thought it was an out."
--Angels catcher Josh Paul, on the controversial dropped third strike in Game Two (Chicago Sun-Times)

It's a Beast-less ALCS, as the White Sox and Angels square off in what figures to be a dramatic series.

The aborted decision to move the opening game of the American League Championship Series back a day in light of Saturday's rainout ensured that regardless of who advanced on Monday night, the real winners were the White Sox. While the Angels were logging some 4,700 air miles to make their third game in three days in three different time zones, the Sox were enjoying three days off at home, basking in the afterglow of having eliminated the defending World Champion Red Sox in three straight games for the team's first postseason series win since before Shoeless Joe said it was so.

Jonah sees plenty of surprises in a Sox-on-Sox drubbing in Chicago.

But while the Chicago White Sox face the same question marks about their lack of left-handed pop, the Boston Red Sox have question marks in their starting rotation, their bullpen, and multiple spots in their order not occupied by David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez. With neither team an odds-on bet to advance, the statement I made five days ago stands: "Sox fans could be in for a wild scenario: Their chance at the first World Series in 88 years could rest in the right hand of Jose Contreras." The only difference is now you can make that statement about both Sox.

The media's been making a big deal out of the White Sox' collapse, but they clinched the AL Central on Thursday.

That the Sox got well during the month against the league's weaker sisters, including the Tigers and Royals, misses the point; the Indians did the same for much of the month, then in the last few days the Indians, Red Sox and Yankees have all struggled at times against similarly weak competition.

Crooked Numbers: In Reverse

0

James Click

Our view of the season would be very different if it had played out exactly in reverse to reality. James rewinds the year, and shows us how.

The length of the baseball season can easily obscure some important trends that are developing. Teams like the A's get noticed because their rise from the depths has been so dramatic that it breaks free of the mass of information built before its arrival. But there are may other trends that can easily escape our eyes because so much of the season has already passed.

Prospectus Today: All-Stars

0

Joe Sheehan

The fans and managers can be proud of the work they did in putting together All-Star teams comprised of All-Stars. The players, on the other hand...

As is usually the case, the front door to the Game was guarded well. The fans are to this process what the BBWAA has traditionally been to the Hall of Fame: a worthy gatekeeper, if not always perfect, and a darn sight better than the guys around back who let anyone in. The fans didn't make any head-scratching picks in either league. I may cringe a bit when someone makes the All-Star team off a hot 12 weeks, but it's not the worst thing in the world that the two league MVPs to date, Derrek Lee and Brian Roberts, are starting in Detroit next week.
