Remaining Unsigned 2011 Draftees

  they're down to 20 left..... the expected signing bonuses are from Fla-Giant's estimate in his earlier thread... there are links to the players' stat pages if you click on their summer league...


Giants sign Travious Relaford (from 44th RD - 2011)

Fla-Giant likes this signing and has said Relaford has quite a bit of upside so would have to assume he has more value than the typical 44th RD pick...   (from Relaford, who was a B...


Radio streams for Fresno Grizzlies + Richmond FS

Not sure if this is too interesting to most folks but if you like to follow the minor league teams and don't want to always have to go to the milb website or the radio station website, the...

Giants 7th in franchise value - ($563 mil)

i usually take anything from Bleacher Report with a grain of salt but this is guest article by a senior writer at Forbes so it could be a reasonable approximation... Top 10: ------------------------------------- Yankees - $1.7 billion Red Sox - $912 million Dodgers - $800 million Cubs - $773 million NY Mets - $747 million Phillies - $609 million Giants - $563 million Rangers - $561million Angels - $554 million White Sox - $526 million ------------------------------------- interesting that the avg team value is estimated at $523 million and looks like 2/3rds are below that value...

Has Jonathan Sanchez Been the Same Pitcher?(FanGraphs)

more Sanchie stuff.....this time at FanGraphs.... last paragraph is this: --------------------------------------------------------------------- Yet I don’t think Sanchez’s decreased BABIP is sustainable. I’m inclined to think while it’s interesting to look at a pitcher’s batted ball results by pitch type in order to examine past performance, it is probably not a good predictor of future results. So while Sanchez produced different results in ERA with different pitch selections, his decreased BABIP and strand rate, but consistent rate statistics and constant xFIP, suggest that he has been, more or less, the same pitcher since his first full season as a starter. Barring a dramatic turnaround in his high walk rate, expect an increase in Sanchez’s ERA in 2011, possibly by a full run. -------------------------------------------------------------------- :(

Phillies have 4 of top 22 SP for fantasy baseball(HBT)

saw this mentioned on TheGoodPhight: Philly: Halladay #1, Lee #6, Hamels #14, Oswalt #22 SFG: Lincecum #2, Bumgarner #31, Cain #38, Sanchez #62 yeah its only fantasy bb rankings... he said negative stuff about Cain: Matt Cain ranked 38? Yeah, that's right. I hate Matt Cain. I wish I could justify slotting him even lower, but I can't. Cain has poor control, gives up too many fly balls, and has seen his strikeout talents and induced-whiffs decline each of the past several seasons. His mid-4's xFIPs seem like a ticking time bomb, waiting to screw someone over. Do not even try to cite Cain's 2.46 BB/9 last season. Walk rates can be lucky and Cain's F-Strike% (both for 2010 and his career), one of the largest components of future walk rates, does not support the "improved control" theory. also on Bumgarner: Madison Bumgarner is also in this list. He's been very up-and-down in both the majors and minors, but finished 2010 strong. His minor league numbers indicate strikeout upside, but let's see where the velocity registers in 2011 before we crown him with top-25 potential. ===================================== myself i'm surprised Hamels and Oswalt would be rated that high...i think i'd rather have Cain than Hamels esp. if you look at the last 2 years...
