Prospectus Hit List: NL: Rising to the Top in Cream City

The Braves gain ground on the back of great pitching, the Brewers surge, and the Astros can't do anything right.

On the Beat: Adrian as Advertised

7

John Perrotto

A recent offensive skid only serves to remind Red Sox fans of how well their team has hit after acquiring Adrian Gonzalez over the offseason.

Even though the Red Sox snapped their four-game losing Sunday with a 4-2 win over the Pirates at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, they managed just six hits in the game and have scored just 14 runs in their last five games. While fans of most teams wouldn't worry about a small cold spell, the Fenway faithful are alarmed, which is understandable given that the Bosox had just completed a stretch of 16 games in which they won 14 and averaged an amazing 8.0 runs a game.

Red Sox lose three to injury, Verlander and Shields add to their Cy Young resumes, and the A's witness the return of Cahill and the emergence of Jemile Weeks.

Milwaukee got off to a slow start, but with some Princely additions in the offseason, they may still be able to salvage a spot in the playoffs.

If this is Prince Fielder's last go-round in Milwaukee, he's doing his best to make it memorable. Over the weekend, Fielder led the Brewers to a three-game sweep of the Cardinals, homering on Saturday and Sunday, with his mammoth 440-foot two-run blast on the latter day giving the Brewers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. A free agent-to-be at the end of the season, Fielder is making a strong case for a contract along the lines of Mark Teixeira and Adrian Gonzalez, having hit eight homers in a 10-game span to climb to second in the league with 19. With his help, the Brewers are the senior circuit's hottest team.

Prospectus Hit List: AL: Tense Times

The increasingly heated Yankee/Red Sox rivalry, the Tigers tied for first, and an Adam Dunn sighting.

Hamels' inconsistency has been greatly exaggerated, John Mallee suffers a fate he didn't deserve, and more.

The Philadelphia Phillies bounced back from a poor week two weeks ago, including a four-game losing streak to the likes of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Washington Nationals, to pick up five of seven games since last Sunday. This was partly due to the continued success of Cole Hamels, who has turned in one of his best seasons so far in 2011, recording a 2.58 ERA and winning eight games for the NL East leaders.

Of course, this has brought up conversation about Hamels once again regaining “consistency” or “growing up into a man,” the same sort of commentary people were making when he became the 2008 World Series MVP. Hamels’ consistency, or lack thereof, has always been a point of contention. If you look at his career in terms of ERA, it certainly does seem to have been a wild ride, but as Baseball Prospectus author and resident Philly Phanatic Bill Baer has repeated often, Hamels has been a very good pitcher with some varying streaks of luck over the last four seasons:

The Twins' 2011 struggles could have been foreseen, and not just with the aid of a crystal ball.

It has been a miserable season thus far for the Twins, but since the calendar flipped to June, they’ve shown signs of life. On the heels of a three-game sweep by the Tigers, the two-time defending AL Central champions rebounded to take four straight from the Royals in Kansas City, then kicked off a three-game series in Cleveland with a 6-4 win, their fifth straight. Their streak ended on Tuesday with a 1-0 loss to the Indians, but where they were 20 games under .500 and 16.5 out at the close of play on June 1, they’re now 16 under (22-38) and 12.5 out. While their performance to date still qualifies as the team's worst start since 1995, the run offers the faintest flicker of hope that the club can climb back into the AL Central race.

The Phillies retake the top spot in the NL Hit List and welcome back Chase Utley at the same time, while the Cardinals and Braves battle to overcome the struggles of their erstwhile stars.

Kenley Jansen's run at history, the futility of the Padres, and whether the D'Backs are for real.

The more games they play, the more this year's Diamondbacks look like last year's Padres. The team that was almost universally picked to finish last in the NL West has taken over first place, moving a half game ahead of the World Champion Giants.

The Red Sox ride strong pitching to complete their climb to the top of the AL Hit List, with the Yankees close behind despite the struggles of Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada.
