Out of Left Field: Shorting the Red Sox

6

Matthew Kory

After 2012, what should we unlearn about the Red Sox?

 

One of the difficult parts about fantasy baseball is dealing with perception. When a player hits a home run, it feels like that’s what they’ll always do. Put another way, do you take a guy who just homered out of your lineup? No, of course not. He just homered. Therefore he’ll continue to homer. That’s a good way to lose. I know because that’s what I do best in fantasy sports. The way to do it, so I’ve been told, is ignore that homer. Let your understanding of the player’s value over the course of the season dictate your decisions. A single event, in this case the homer, shouldn’t enter into it. Yet it always does and I always pay the price.

Rumor Roundup: Wednesday, November 28

Daniel Rathman

David Wright disputes reports about the state of his extension talks, the Dodgers are determined to go big for Zack Greinke, and the Red Sox shop a player they traded for less than a year ago.

After watching the Angels bullpen blow an American League-high 22 saves last year, general manager Jerry DiPoto was determined to fortify his late-inning staff. DiPoto made his first move to that end on Tuesday morning, striking a one-year deal with Ryan Madson, who missed the 2012 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Meanwhile, after adding Scott Baker to the Cubs rotation earlier this month, Theo Epstein snagged another low-cost righty in Scott Feldman, who will reportedly earn $6-7 million next year.

Here are three other rumors that surfaced amid those signings:

Looking for examples of a similarly strange managerial move.

Last Sunday, Bobby Valentine pinch-hit for Jose Iglesias with two outs and a 2-2 count in the seventh inning of a scoreless game against the Blue Jays. Iglesias wasn’t hurt. Toronto hadn’t changed pitchers. However, the situation had changed slightly: on the last pitch Iglesias saw, Pedro Ciriaco stole second. Iglesias is a weak hitter (at that point, he was 2-for-28 on the season), so with a runner in scoring position, Valentine called for Daniel Nava to drive him in. Had Ciriaco not stolen second, Valentine would have left Iglesias in to play defense. Maybe he wished he had after Nava grounded out on the next pitch.

According to a transcript unearthed by Adam, Theo Epstein almost derailed the Dodgers-Red Sox mega-trade with a call to his old friend Ben.

Days ago, the Red Sox and Dodgers pulled off the most expensive trade in history, but a just-released recording of an August 20 telephone conversation between Boston GM Ben Cherington and his predecessor, Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein, reveals that it very nearly never came about.

Cherington: Hello?
