Does FIP tell the truth about Liriano, or is his ERA a better indication of his talent?

Value Picks: Starting Pitching Review

1

Paul Sporer

Paul closes out VP's season with his starting pitcher review.

It is review time at Value Picks. Since I wasn’t here writing the starting pitcher VP from the jump, I don’t have any preseason picks to review, so we’ll dive in around late-April when I signed on and break the season up into a few segments.

Weekly Planner: Week 25

1

Paul Sporer

Rotations are in serious flux as teams juggle starters down the stretch, but Paul helps make sense of it all in this week's Planner.

Some teams are running six-man rotations and every team seemingly has their rotation in flux, but we’ll try to iron out the two-start pitchers for next week as we inch closer and closer to wrapping up yet another 162.

Auto-Starts: Max Scherzer and Doug Fister

Value Picks: Starting Pitching for 9/7/12

1

Paul Sporer

Paul looks at Andrew Werner and A.J. Griffin as potential difference-makers in fantasy leagues down the homestretch.

Can you believe we officially have less than a month of the regular season left? That depresses me. I like football just fin; I just love baseball two billion times more. Okay, chin up, no need for tears. We’ve still got a month plus the playoffs, which are shaping up to be fantastic. More importantly, you have got your fantasy playoffs (or at least a stretch run for you roto folks) to worry about right now. The September roster expansion deepens the pool of potential Value Picks, but pitchers running up against inning limits, wearing down, or outright being shutdown cuts into that depth a bit.

Ben and Sam discuss whether a team should have claimed Joe Mauer, what he's worth, and what his future will look like, then talk about the end of Erik Bedard's stay in Pittsburgh and how sad it is when a guy who's always either good or injured goes bad.

Prospectus Preview: NL East 2012 Preseason Preview

28

Derek Carty and Michael Jong

Roundtable discussion of the pressing questions facing the NL East teams as we approach the start of the season

1) After a disappointing sophomore campaign, what can we expect of Jason Heyward going forward?
MJ:
Jason Heyward had an injury-riddled sophomore season in Atlanta, but there is a lot to like about his chances at a rebound campaign in 2012. His offensive line was deflated by a .260 BABIP, but his peripherals were once again stellar. His 11.6 percent walk rate represented a regression from 2010 but cannot be considered poor, and his .162 ISO likewise dropped from the previous year but did not experience a precipitous fall.

Prospectus Hit and Run: NL Post-Season Rotation Ramble

4

Jay Jaffe

While there is a confusing starting rotation picture for the AL playoff contenders, the NL is much clearer.

With the matter of the playoff participants in both leagues largely settled, on Wednesday I examined the unsettled nature of the playoff rotations of the likely AL representatives. As I showed, each has a considerable amount of unfinished business with regards to identifying their front four, with injuries and matchup issues both playing a part, and there's relatively little separation between the four, at least according to a quick and dirty measure I nabbed from Nate Silver's back pages. By comparison, the NL teams have much less uncertainty as to who will be taking the ball, and much more certainty about whom the fairest of them all is, at least when it comes to post-season rotations.

Prospectus Hit and Run: What the Halo?

7

Jay Jaffe

A look at the 2011 Angels, their strengths, their weaknesses, and their chances at making the playoffs.

Back in mid-May, when we were all younger and more handsome, if not smarter, I predicted that the Rangers would pull away from the Angels—who led the AL West by a game and a half at the time—once injured sluggers Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz returned to the lineup. The two teams stayed close, but when Texas opened up a five-game lead while reeling off a 12-game winning streak that carried through the All-Star break, the division looked to be in their control. The Halos have refused to go quietly, however, and they remain in contention. They came to the Bronx last night just a game and a half out of first place and took the series opener from the Yankees in dramatic fashion, with Bobby Abreu socking two homers—including a two-run ninth-inning shot off Mariano Rivera.

Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 7/15/11

5

Bill Baer

Bill welcomes Mark Buehrle and Carlos Villanueva to the list as he waits for the second half to start.

Given the All-Star break, not much has changed since the last column. Perhaps with another look, though, you can find someone to help you out in your fantasy leagues.

Concluding the two-part series by reviewing the best and worst first-half pitchers for each team.

To recap my methodology, here is what I wrote in the positional players’ piece earlier this week:
