Losing Russell...the sky may not fall


• MLB's Prospects Webpage shows six SSs in the top 30.

• There are 14 prospects listed as SSs on the International Prospects' top 30 list.

• Not all 20 of these prospects will pan out or stick at SS.

• But some will -- they will add to an existing pool of quality SSs.

• Some quality SSs, with experience, are going to become available because of this.

• News flash: supply & demand affect relative costs

• Russell was one SS prospect that some scouts worried would not stick at the position.

• The sky is not nearly falling as fast as the 2014 post season aspirations are rising.

• Cheer up if you're only looking for reasons to be down.

Economics of Sports


From around the 15:00 mark on through to about the 20:30 mark of this podcast, two economists primarily discuss our Athletics, econometrics, and Moneyball. There are topics in here that have been discussed on this site before but I still find them interesting...especially when talked about amongst 'outsiders'.

A More Radical Pitching Staff Proposal


An interesting idea but it is not original. Some member of AN -- yes, right here -- wrote a fanpost about, IIRC, this very same concept two to three years back. I'm not sure how to find that post (or who wrote it) but would like to see the two side by side. Can I get some help with that in the form of a link, please?

Oakland Athletics: 4 Lineup Shuffles to Revamp the Offense


From Bleacher Report Nothing really new or original here [these kind of opinions are plentiful on AN by themselves] but some people [I'm one of them] like to read anything about the team from various sources.
