Tyler Flowers Atlanta Braves
The rumor mill at work - allegedly included in the Vazquez deal.

Rumor has it that Ryan Spillbrough has been told that the CF job is his to lose and the Rocks try and trade Willy Tavares. That leaves Young in AA as a 24 y/o...I'd like to see him swinging against Major Leaguers.

Jeff Kent Los Angeles Dodgers
At some point, the HOF discussion is going to come up. Kent's numbers are great compared to other 2B. Somehow, though, I do not see him as a HOF. Bias? Am I am simpleton? (Don't answer that question). He just isn't.

David Price Boston Red Sox
I agree Alex. I think the Rays are in a position where they can put him out there every 5th day, and he has the stuff to make it happen. I am still having a hard time putting a dollar value on him, but I think he gets a decent salary...those of you in keeper leagues do not want another owner walking away with a very large, very inexpensive dump chip (to the extent he is not already protected).

Not to mention the Rays. I'll say it here first: he's going to start.

Tim Lincecum Texas Rangers
Note from a masochist:

Phillies phooey, the NL was pathetic again last year -- as pathetic as it was three years ago -- in its match-ups against the AL, and so, as was done in 2006, I've made the saves denominator for wins in the NL slightly smaller than it usually is (2.4 instead of 2,5) and the one for the AL slightly larger (2.6 instead of 2.5). Wins were more scarce in the NL league and hence each win was just a little more valuable. Only a little. Linceum earns $36 instead of the $35 he would have earned if the NL had just more or less held its own in interleague play.

Shin-Soo Choo Texas Rangers
Players who earn $18 the year before are never sleepers the following year.

Even people who don't know a Patton dollar from a Schrute buck have some idea of what Choo earned in 2008.

That's the problem.

Mariano Rivera New York Yankees
Who says relievers don't have an impact on the qualitatives? Mariano was worth more than K-Rod last year.

The top five AL pitchers:

Mariano Rivera $48
Francisco Rodriguez $46
RoyHalladay $42
Joakim Soria $42
CliffLee $41

Shin-Soo Choo Texas Rangers
Look closely at the numbers; check out what NeauxBrainer, a serious Indians fan, had to say about Choo in September; don't even kid yourself he's going to be a sleeper next year.

Jeff Kent Los Angeles Dodgers
If I were Jeff Kent, I would retire while I still had a lifetime .500 slugging average.

Actually, no I wouldn't.

Brian McCann Atlanta Braves
For the rest of this year, we'll keep showing the bids that Peter, Mike and I recommended for last year. Take a bow, Mike.

The numbers say he was a model of consistency; Mets fans know better.

Manny Ramirez Boston Red Sox
Earned $3 more in half as many games -- now there's a salary drive!

Mark Teixeira New York Yankees
Which league has the better pitching?

I know, I know, small sample size. Nevertheless.

Alex Rodriguez New York Yankees
He wins the MVP, tails off... wins the MVP, tails off...

Bids are for last year, by the way. We haven't changed those yet.

Aramis Ramirez Pittsburgh Pirates
John Dewan informs us in his Stat of the Week that Aramis hit .423 last year Close & Late. As he says, "Not too shabby."

He also points out that the Cubs rose from fifteenth in the league in walks in 2007 to first last year.

Not that Aramis saw a 14 point rise in OBP even as his BA dropped 21 points. Was it all the hitting coach?

Dustin Pedroia Boston Red Sox
Progress. Now, in addition to the 2008 stats for each player, we've added the far more important information over on the far right. What Dustin Pedroia earned last year in standard 4x4 leagues.

Who would've thunk?

If he sounds anything like his old man does, he'll be a fun interview, if nothing else.

We've decided "last year" ended on Oct. 31, so my comment for Eric Young (who ended up winning the AFL batting title, hitting .430) missed the cut-off by one day. In any case, the hits kept dropping in, he stole 7 more bases without getting caught, slugged .640, got on base at a .504 clip, and you have to think the scouts ended up being at least a little impressed. He'll get a good look by the Rocks in spring training.
