Strikeout-to-Hit Ratio: Measuring Pitcher Dominance
by
Rany Jazayerli

<< Previous Tag Entries No More Tag Entries

One prospect dominates the present and future of lefty pitching, while another southpaw is falling off the wagon.

For this series, I will be shuttling you through the minor leagues to discover the best talents at each position and ranking them in tiers according to skill, current and future ability, and whether the player in question is from Texas. Need to catch up on how I’m doing the rankings and the top right-handed pitchers? Take a look at Part I.

The Latin Talent Market

Kiley McDaniel

Rounding out a list of the top 20 international talents, with video and reports straight from south of the border.

I've got a lot of ground to cover today, so we'll skip any long-winded introductions and just get right into the good stuff. As with last week's piece, non-subscribers who would like to take a look at the videos embedded below can check out my Vimeo page.

While I was in the Dominican last month, the biggest showcase of the year featured various top July 2nd prospects facing off against the Canadian junior national team. Left-hander Jake Eliopoulos, the top Canadian prospect in tomorrow's draft, toed the rubber for three innings. Here's a bonus video and scouting report on him, as you'll want to know something about him, as he should be drafted tomorrow:

Doctoring The Numbers: Angels, Indians, and Reds

Rany Jazayerli

A pair of current bullpen greats who've already made history, and the strange journey of Jeff Keppinger.

Los Angeles Angels

Picking up where he left off yesterday, Rany continues his dissection of the 2006 Detroit Tigers.

A month after nabbing their franchise shortstop, the Tigers signed a franchise catcher, Ivan Rodriguez. On the surface, this made all kinds of sense; it's not often you get the opportunity to sign a surefire Hall of Famer who just turned 32. On the other hand, catchers age quickly, and Rodriguez caught more games (1564) before his 32nd birthday than anyone other than Johnny Bench, who was finished as a catcher by the time he turned 33 and was finished as a ballplayer when he was 35. While Rodriguez's 4-year, $40 million deal was eminently reasonable, it still represented a gamble in that it was likely the Tigers would never be competitive enough during the life of the contract to make the addition of Rodriguez meaningful.

Crooked Numbers: The Bull in the Pen

0

James Click

James tackles the divide between the way the mainstream media values relievers, and the way more advanced metrics do.

In his discussion of the likely NL MVP race shaping up, Joe Sheehan pointed out that if you look at the most prominent contenders--Derrek Lee, Albert Pujols, and Andruw Jones--Lee distances himself from the field in WARP by a vast margin. Looking at the traditional stats, Lee leads the league in batting average, Jones leads in home runs and RBI, and Pujols is second, third and second in those categories, respectively. It's easy to see why those three would be the favorites headed into the final month of the season.

Notebook closes out the week with an all-NL edition, looking at the Cubs, Rockies, and Phillies.

This gap between best and second best is nothing new to Cubs fans. Back in the days before the scales fell from my eyes and I ranked players based on things like batting average and home runs, it seemed like Sammy Sosa was routinely hitting two or three times as many home runs as whoever was #2 on the team that year. It could be Mark Grace, or Henry Rodriguez, or Matt Stairs, and it didn't matter, Sammy was leaving them in the dust. As much as I enjoyed Sosa's power exploits, it always seemed that having your offense concentrated in one player like that couldn't be good for the team.

We close the books on the first half of the season with no change at the top four spots, but a lot of activity underneath.

There's a change at the top for the first time in a month.
