Prospectus Q&A: Shea Hillenbrand

1

David Laurila

New Angel Shea Hillenbrand gives his take on the trouble in Toronto, playing with Barry Bonds, and which offensive statistics he values.

Originally with the Red Sox, Hillenbrand was traded to Arizona for Byung-Hyun Kim in 2003. He began last season with Toronto, but was traded to San Francisco in July after a well-publicized confrontation with Blue Jays manager John Gibbons that erupted after Hillenbrand briefly left the team so that he and his wife could adopt a child. The 31-year-old Hillenbrand has since found another home, signing a $6.5 million free agent deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in December.

The Diamondbacks get younger and better, the Red Sox get bad rotation news, and the Blue Jays get rid of a headache.

Checking back in with a team covered earlier in the season proves illuminating for Jonah Keri in this week's Game of the Week.

When we last left the Indians seven weeks ago, for instance, the team looked like a fringe playoff contender, buoyed by a solid core of offensive talent, above-average starting pitching, and players such as Aaron Boone and Casey Blake who by dint of sheer regression to the mean figured to add to the team's second-half success. Yet that day's column focused more on the demise of Randy Johnson as a top-flight pitcher than on a possible Cleveland playoff run.

  • The No-Longer-A-Rumor Trade: The Shea Hillenbrand for Byung-Hyun Kim trade is no doubt known to BP readers. The deal has been (and will continue to be) analyzed from every angle, with most of those on the stathead side of the debate coming down in favor of the Bosox.

    Prospectus Today: Fun in the Sun

    Joe Sheehan

    Yesterday's Shea Hillenbrand-for-Byung-Hyun Kim trade is many things, all of which can be summed in one word: Fun. It's a baseball trade, one in which the financial considerations are a tertiary concern. It's two teams getting together to exchange strength in an effort to patch weaknesses, with an eye towards glory this year. It's a challenge trade: one-for-one, no cash, players to be named or future considerations. I'm not ashamed to say that the deal put a real hop in my step; there are so many angles to the swap, so many facets to be examined, and so many ways in which it could go right or wrong for either team.

    By far, the most common question showing up in my mailbox this week--during those periods when I've actually had access to my e-mail, thank you, Time Warner--concerns Red Sox third baseman Shea Hillenbrand. Hillenbrand, who did not make the cut for Baseball Prospectus 2001, did make the Sox roster thanks to a .423 batting average in 52 spring at-bats.
