On the Beat: Making the Tigers Roar

2

John Perrotto

Dave Dombrowski has pulled off a pair of stellar moves to upgrade Detroit's pitching staff, which has helped the team to two consecutive ALCS series.

Most general managers say that starting pitching remains the most difficult commodity to acquire. That would be hard to tell, though, by what Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski has done the past two seasons.

The future of the Giants' farm system will largely depend upon the team's most recent draft.

A writer who never saw Jack Morris pitch watches him in action for the first time and comes away even less convinced that the traditionalist case for his candidacy should earn him a call to Cooperstown.

Sizing up every facet of each contender in this season's Fall Classic.

The Breakdown

What factors determine how often hitters take one for the team?

Every season major league pitchers throw tens of thousands of pitches inside off the plate, yet they hit batters “only” about 1500-1800 times in a season. Why do some inside pitches hit the batter, while others do not?

Examining the approach that has made Ryan Vogelsong a giant among Giants with the aid of PITCHf/x.

In January, Ryan Vogelsong signed a minor-league contract with the San Francisco Giants. He compiled a 3.27 ERA in 22 solid innings in spring training but was sent to Triple-A Fresno to begin the year. He followed that up with two strong starts at Fresno, allowing three runs and striking out 17 in 11 1/3 innings. On April 17, Vogelsong joined the big club when Barry Zito went on the disabled list with a foot injury, and on April 28, he took Zito’s place in the Giants starting rotation.

Overthinking It: A Little Bit Softer Now

16

Ben Lindbergh

Do southpaws really tend to be soft tossers, and if so, why?

“They have crooked arms. They throw crooked, they walk crooked, and they think crooked. They even wear their clothes crooked. You have to figure they’re a little crazy.” —Al Schacht

“There ain’t a left-hander in the world who can run a straight line. It’s the gravitational pull on the earth’s axis that gets ’em.”Ray Miller

Last year in this precious space of bandwidth, we introduced the first-ever On The Beat All-MLB Team. The thought was if the NFL has the All-Pro team and the NBA and NHL also have post-season all-star teams, why not baseball?

Prospectus Q&A: Dave Baldwin

7

David Laurila

The former major-league pitcher talks about various scientific aspects of the game.

Dave Baldwin is unique among former big-league pitchers. After a 16-year professional baseball career, including stints with the Senators (1966-1969), Brewers (1970), and White Sox (1973), Baldwin was a geneticist, engineer, and artist. He is now retired and living in Yachats, Oregon. His "Baseball Paradoxes" can be found at http://www.snakejazz.com.
