Descending from Altitude

Ryan Wilkins

As it has been well-publicized by the media, both in and outside of the Colorado area, Mike Hampton's time in the Mile High City was anything but successful. In his two years with the Rockies, Hampton posted a won-loss record of just 21-28, along with a major league-high ERA of 5.75more than half a run higher than the next closest starter, fellow Rockie and member of the Great Changeup Experiment, Denny Neagle. And yet, as 2003 regular season gets under way, whose name do we see listed in the Atlanta Braves starting rotation? None other than Michael William Hampton. Acquired over the off-season in one of the most complicated deals of all time not involving Herschel Walker, Hampton joins perhaps the most vulnerable Braves rotation in a decadea unit that has already seen its star have a brush with mortality, and an off-season signee go down until July. What can be expected of Hampton, though? Members of the media have spent more than their fair share of time waxing philosophical on the situation, with most coming to the conclusion that gambling on the 30-year-old lefty is a worthwhile risk. Granted, this might very well be the case, as Hampton was among the winningest pitchers in the National League before signing with Colorado in 2001. Fellow Rockies refugee Darryl Kile was able to make the transition from 5,200 feet above sea-level to Busch Stadium without missing a beat. If he could do it, why can't Hampton?

The Snakes bury John Patterson, the Red Sox sort through a batch of soft tossers, the Marlins vie for a 25-catcher roster, and the Devil Rays solve all their problems by grabbing Al Martin and Damion Easley.

PECOTA Does Fantasy

Nate Silver

After using PECOTA-generated roto values at the recent Tout Wars National League draft, Nate Silver runs the numbers to produce values for the AL. Hint: as in the NL, pay the premium for studs. And do everything you can to get Pedro.

You can import these values into a spreadsheet by selecting them in your browser and copying them, pasting them into a text file (i.e. Notepad), and opening the new text file with your spreadsheet (i.e. Excel).

Dennis Tankersley falls further behind in the Padres' arms race. Jack Cust's journey from the next Jim Thome to Chris Richard bait. Steve Reed: Best Rockies pitcher ever? And Joe Sheehan would never taunt readers with stories of 80-degree sunshine, would he?

I closed out my brief trip to Arizona by returning to the scene of my first spring training game last year. Phoenix Municipal Park absolutely lives up to its name: seats, bleachers, a ballfield and a view of the desert. The press box is a concrete bunker that, when the between-innings music plays, serves as a nasty reminder that maybe, just maybe, it could be too loud, and maybe, just maybe, I could be too old.

Re-signed INF-R Benji Gil and DH-L Brad Fullmer to one-year contracts. Signed OF-R Eric Owens to a one-year contract, and LHP Rich Rodriguez, 2B-R Adam Riggs, and UT-R Oscar Salazar to minor league contracts. Avoided arbitration with 2B-L Adam Kennedy, INF-B Scott Spiezio, and LHPs Jarrod Washburn and Scott Schoeneweis. Claimed C-R Wil Nieves off of waivers (from the Padres).

ANAHEIM ANGELS Acquired OF-R Alex Ochoa and C-R Sal Fasano from the Brewers for C-L Jorge Fabregas and two PTBNLs. [7/31] This was an elegant, if low-key, solution to the Angels' need for some hitting help, depending of course on the likelihood that neither of the PTBNLs are significant prospects. Those odds are pretty low, since the Angels don't have that many significant prospects in the first place, and they did only get a couple of journeymen. To purge Jorge Fabregas from the roster is a happy development in itself, and beyond that, they get the fourth outfielder they need and a third catcher who makes for a viable option to either of the Molina brothers.

Playoff Prospectus

That kvetching aside, the NLCS should be a great matchup. Not surprisingly for one of the nation's grayest of retiree nirvanas, the Arizona Diamondbacks feature all sorts of people with past histories, and among this group, that involves plenty of postseason fun. Luis Gonzalez, Jay Bell, Mark Grace, and Matt Williams have all enjoyed the privilege of losing to the Braves in a postseason series, while Curt Schilling and Steve Finley are among the happy non-Yankee few who can remember beating them. When you assemble a team out of the famous and the ex-famous, those kinds of campfire stories are a fringe benefit.

However, the Snakes come in after a full-length series against the Cardinals with only a day's rest, which means that the Braves will have the strategic advantage of opening the series with their rotation and bullpen fully set up and rested.

So who's the underdog? With the Astros' pitching staff in tatters and the Braves' lineup deeply sunk in senescence, does the label even matter? Both teams have fought doggedly to get here, and the backstory of each is compelling in its own way. Limping down the stretch, the Astros fended off a desperate challenge from the Cardinals, while the Braves came from behind to overtake the Phillies' and their big early-season lead. Sadly, somebody's going to have to lose this series, which means that either the Braves or the Astros will continue to be labeled postseason losers despite the accomplishment of getting there.
