What You Need to Know: Wild!

0

Chris Mosch

The last playoff battle is a good one, and got tighter still on Thursday.

The Thursday Takeaway
The 2015 season has been filled with unpredictability. The Nationals collapsed. The Mets clinched the NL East with a week and a half to go in the season. The Blue Jays became a super team. The Royals defied the projections and have had the AL Central in the bag for a couple of months. The Twins are still playing meaningful games!

BP Milwaukee

Jack Moore

Prince Fielder is hitting .300 and helping lead the Rangers to the postseason.

Prince Fielder isn't the slugger he once was, but he's still managing to be very productive, transforming himself into a contact hitter with some pop. Fielder has also contributed to the Rangers loose clubhouse and dugout atmosphere, providing moments of levity for all to enjoy. Over at BP Milwaukee, Jack Moore takes a look at the impact Fielder has had on and off the field.

Rubbing Mud: Don't Mess With Texas

11

Matthew Trueblood

The Rangers are exceeding expectations. Where did the expectations go wrong?

In our preseason predictions piece, 45 of us tried to forecast the 2015 season. Not one of us thought the Texas Rangers would finish first in the AL West. That’s okay; they’re three games out and the Astros are still likely to hold them off. There also wasn’t a brave enough soul to predict that Texas would finish second in the division. Alright, they’re three and a half games clear of the Angels, but that still might not be enough cushion. The thing is, only one of the 45 of us (Bret Sayre, cheers) even had the audacity to suggest that the Rangers could finish third. Sixty percent of this staff of so-called experts had the Rangers finishing last. Instead, they wake up Monday morning with a game and a half to spare for the second Wild Card spot, at 68-61 and riding a four-game winning streak.

Were we wrong about the Rangers? About the Royals? About the Twins? That’s the question we’re here today to answer. (If we were wrong about those three teams, of course, we were also wrong about the Red Sox, Mariners, and Nationals, but we’ll explore the reasons for that wrongness—or innocent victimization at the hands of the universe—another time.) It’s perfectly possible, of course, to not foresee something simply because it couldn’t be foreseen. There’s no blame there. Some things happen simply because anything can happen, and not because they were likely to happen all along. Then again, there are cases every season in which we really, truly should have taken a little longer to understand a team a little better, and where if we had, we might have forecast their seasons better.

Josh Hamilton goes back to the team where he experienced the best years of his career, but how he performs on the field will always be of secondary importance in his life.

In 2000, when Alex Rodriguez was a free agent, Scott Boras did something amazing that we just don't appreciate enough.

On Sunday, Darren Rovell tweeted a handful of pages from the free agent binder that Scott Boras put together for a 25-year-old Alex Rodriguez. As most of us around here tend to be projections junkies, surely you’ll find this page particularly interesting:

Rumor Roundup: Alex Colome's Series of Unfortunate Events

3

Daniel Rathman

Everything's going wrong for Alex Colome, Addison Reed is making changes, Leonys Martin will hit at the top, and Hector Olivera gets another mention here.

Rays’ Alex Colome battling pneumonia
Sometimes, players favored to win position battles struggle on the field and cede their projected roles. Unfortunately, if Alex Colome does not open the season in the Tampa Bay rotation, it will likely be the result of forces beyond his baseball control.
