What You Need to Know: Monday in Playoff Implications
by
Daniel Rathman

<< Previous Tag Entries Next Tag Entries >>

Charlie Wilmoth's book, Dry Land, traces the Pirates fan experience over two decades of losing and one year of winning.

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.

Charlie Wilmoth is the founder of Bucs Dugout, a writer at MLB Trade Rumors, and the author of the new book Dry Land: Winning After 20 Years at Sea With the Pittsburgh Pirates. What follows is an excerpt from that book, which can be purchased here. You can learn more about the book here, or follow Charlie at @WilmothC.

Painting the Black: Spring Flings

R.J. Anderson

Some teams are spending the spring trying out potential positional mates. Who should win these battles?

With the first week of the exhibition season in the books, teams now have less than a month before their Opening Day rosters are due. Most clubs have an open spot or two up for grabs, typically in the bullpen or off the bench, but a few are staging auditions of greater importance this spring. Here are 10 intriguing positional battles along with a prediction of who we believe ought to win the jobs.

Rumor Roundup: Extending Trout

7

Daniel Rathman

The Angels try to keep Trout around, plus updates on Ervin Santana and Kendrys Morales.

Angels, Mike Trout in talks about six-year, $150 million extension
Earlier this winter, there was buzz that the Angels might approach Mike Trout about a long-term contract that would guarantee him more money up front, perhaps in exchange for an extra year or two in a Halos uniform. Now, Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan has given us a window into what such a contract might look like.

Which teams' glass slippers best fit the six still-unsigned top-50 free agents?

It was new and exciting in November, mundane in December, and comforting and familiar in January. But by mid-February, speculating about likely landing spots for attractive free agents is as tired as publicly celebrating the Beatles.*

Granted, the alternative would be talking about the sort of stuff that otherwise occupies us early in spring training: what players look like; what players look like from afar; what players might look like from afar, if we could see them; what players look like upside-down; meaningless quotes about team chemistry. There’s only so much we can do to combat the boring until real baseball begins.

With a top-three system, the Pirates are absolutely loaded.

The Astros make a savvy signing in Jesse Crain, the Pirates sort of fill a platoon, and the Rangers get something where once they might have gotten nothing.

The Mets try to get a power arm in return for Ike Davis, and the Rays' requests in David Price trade talks become clearer.

Mets hunting for power arms in exchange for Ike Davis
Since taking over the reins of the Mets in October 2010, general manager Sandy Alderson has done much of his best work on the trade market, exporting aging assets like Carlos Beltran and R.A. Dickey for high-end pitching prospects like Zack Wheeler and Noah Syndergaard. This offseason, Alderson is working with a much younger and less-accomplished trade chip, but when it comes to the return, he has mid-90s heat on his mind again.
