Here at Baseball Prospectus, we are dedicated to providing you with oodles of cutting-edge sabermetric analysis and keeping our finger on the pulse of the baseball world. With a slew of daily articles, it’s easy for one piece to get lost in the shuffle or for you to overlook a post while you’re busy hiding your monitor from your boss. Just in case this happens to be your situation, here’s what you might have missed this week at BP.



  • Feel like going to Vegas? Ken Funck brought the action to you, as he started an over/under contest for the American League and chose the baseline odds for selected players’ performance.
  • Injury-prone players can have a difficult time hooking on to ballclubs, and teams that have signed players to big-money deals almost always look for ways to ensure that the investment is protected. Eric Seidman covered how teams choose to insure players and how injury history plays a role in it.


The big news of the day came when the St. Louis Cardinals confirmed that starter Adam Wainwright will need to undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the 2011 season. Christina, Marc Normandin, and Corey Dawkins provided an excellent take on the situation, but for Cardinals fans who were too delirious to read the rest of the site content, here’s a peek at what you might have missed.



 Have a great weekend, and we'll see you back here on Monday to whet your baseball appetite!
