Lineup changes for the Red Sox, a look at the Reds' 2004 outfield, and a comparison of last year's Padres offense with this year's. All this and more news and notes from San Diego, Cincinnati, and Boston in Tuesday's Prospectus Triple Play.

  • OBP Up Front: New manager Terry Francona has indicated that he'll open the season with Manny Ramirez and Nomar Garciaparra flip-flopped in the lineup. NESN broadcasters salivated Sunday, recalling incredible numbers from Ramirez during his brief experience batting third in Cleveland. A look at Manny's splits really don't bear this out--he's mashed up and down the lineup more or less equally throughout his career. But we love the idea of bumping the patient Ramirez in front of the ever more Tourettic, first-pitch chasing Garciaparra--Manny took nearly triple Nomar's walks in 2003. Of course, Dusty Baker would probably say that Manny will just clog up the basepaths.

    The Red Sox aren't settling for the Wild Card yet. The Barry Larkin era has apparently come to an end for the Reds. A look at the second tier of young Padres pitchers. All this and more from San Diego, Cincinnati, and Boston in your Tuesday edition of Prospectus Triple Play.

  • We're No. 2: The Sox announced their presence in the AL East race with authority by taking the first two games of an early-August weekend series in the Bronx to pull within 1.5 games of the division leader. The Red Sox promptly gave back two full games in the next two days by forgetting their bats in the series finale and how to play defense in an opener against the Orioles, while the Yankees handled the Blue Jays. Since then, the Sox have gone 9-4, but the Bombers have surpassed that with a 11-3-1 (thank you, Isabel) stretch, all but securing a second-place finish for Boston once again.

    The Red Sox don't strand that many runners, given how many they get on base. The Reds continue to dismantle a snake-bitten team. The Padres appear close to acquiring Brian Giles. These and other news and notes out of Boston, Cincinnati, and San Diego in today's Prospectus Triple Play.

  • Microstudy: The Red Sox lost to the A's 8-6 on August 20th. But this was no ordinary loss. The Red Sox lost in one of the most frustrating ways possible--leaving 17 men on base during the game, almost two stranded per inning. The Sox seem to have a knack (or at least the reputation) for stranding runners. Despite a high-powered offense and one of the best slugging teams in history (their current .496 SLG would be the all-time record by a wide margin), the Bosox seem to have more trouble that you'd expect in plating their baserunners. But is this true, or more typical teeth-gnashing from New England fans?

    Bill Mueller has done more than anyone in Boston dared hope. Jose Guillen's shocking first-half success has helped make up for Felipe Lopez's struggles in Cinicinnati. Rondell White and Mark Loretta could fetch some intriguing young talent for San Diego before the trade deadline. These and other news notes from the Red Sox, Reds, and Padres in this edition of Prospectus Triple Play.

  • Biggest First-Half Surprise: Bill Mueller. Originally signed as a stopgap to give the Bosox flexibility to trade Shea Hillenbrand, Mueller hit like an MVP candidate the first half of the season, making the decision to move Hillenbrand that much easier. A career .286/.370/.399 hitter coming off a .262/.350/.393 season, the 32-year old Mueller is at .332/.405/.551 heading into the break, outhitting Nomar Garciaparra, Trot Nixon, and everyone else on the team not named Ramirez (and he ain't far behind Manny).

    The Red Sox channel the spirit of Jerry Remy to shake off their sloth-like ways, the Reds ask who's on third, and the Padres would be nuts to convert Oliver Perez to closer. Plus more news and notes from Boston, Cincy, and San Diego.

    In this installment of Prospectus Triple Play, Prospectus authors look at the Red Sox closer situation, the Reds' injury woes, and Ryan Klesko's improved defense for the Padres. Plus tips o' the cap to Trot Nixon, Kevin Millar, and Brian Lawrence.

    Both teams appear to be in stasis. That's not the case. A review of each organization's minor-league system reveals that the Padres are improving much faster than their major-league record suggests, and the Tigers are at long last proceeding, if slowly, and if perhaps too slowly to catch up to the Indians, White Sox, and Twins.

    NL West Notebook

    Joe Sheehan

    We're in Year Eight of major-league baseball in Denver, which means we're approaching a point when we should have enough data to start determining what type of baseball, and what type of player, is best-suited to winning at altitude. We've seen a few different ideas implemented so far, as the Rockies have moved through flyball hitters with so-so OBPs to the current media-friendly speed 'n' defense model.

    This Notebook won't be proffering a solution: that's a long-term project that we at Baseball Prospectus hope to attack in the next year. But what I want to do here is point out just how dramatic an effect playing in the high-altitude environment of Denver has on performance.

    Welcome to Baseball Prospectus' predictions for 1999. We'll go division by division and each of our staff members will tell you what they think about the races. Remember, there's a reason we don't print this stuff in the book; there is no good way we know of to predict what a team will do before the season begins. Consider these teamwide WFGs, take them with a grain of salt, and enjoy.
