  • Rotation poker hands: AL West

    content_img

    With just two weeks until opening day (woo hoo!), most starting rotations have begun to round into shape. So we'll take six days this week to rank the rotations in each division. As if giving you the chance to kigue. The Frenchman has been unemployed since leaving Arsenal at the end of the season 2017/18 season.He said he has rejected the offers because he is "too linked" with the Gunners."I'm an Arsenal man and after that I'm a professional. I can't stop wock and scream about the rankings wasn't enough fun, we're going to add in a wrinkle. Each team will be assigned a poker hand.

    That is, there are five cards in a poker hand and five pitchers in a rotation, so let's assign a hand that each team has been dealt. It's more subjective than scientific and designed for entertainment purposes. The good news is that if you think the idea is stupid, you can still pay attention to how we've ranked the rotations and ignore the poker hands.

    Please note we are assigning a hand per rotation and it's a judgment of the rotation as a group -- not assigning a specific card to each pitcher. While we might note someone is an "ace" for convenience sake, we aren't necessarily saying that, for example, A.J. Griffin is a four of spades.

    Let's dive in.

    Rotation: , , , , ( also possible)

    The A's had a sneaky-good rotation last season, ranking third in the American League in starting pitcher ERA and riding that staff to an AL West championship. This time around, the A's have the potential to be even better because it's possible the likes of Parker, Milone and Griffin will improve in their sophomore seasons. Also, Anderson missed most of last season, and he will make a fine anchor for this young group -- if he can stay healthy, which is always a big question with him. There's always the chance the youngsters will regress a bit as ade Barry.Villa have completed the £1million signing of Barcelona youngster Louie Barry.Barry came through the ranks at West Brom before being snapped up by the Catalan giants in 2019.Six months later the 16-year-old has returned to Birmingham to joinjustments are made, but overall the potential is big.

    Hand they've been dealt

    Three of a kind is pretty good, especially with 10s. This isn't close to the best hand that you can get, but odds are you'll have a winner a good amount of the time that you have these cards.

    Rotation: , , , ,

    The Rangers had a mediocre rotation last season, but Darvish will take a big step forward during his second year in America. Once his adjustment to a new country was finally complete, the 6-foot-5 righthander went 5-1 with a 2.35 ERA and 67 strikeouts in his last eight starts (57 1/3 innings). Expect Holland to work his ERA back to around 4.00 again, too, a major improvement on his 4.67 mark last season. Also, Ogando has proven a quality starter in his career, going 13-8 with a 3.49 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. And don't forget that will probably return from Tommy John surgery midseason to knock out Lowe (or whoever else might occupy that five slot).

    Hand they've been dealt

    It's three of a kind, albeit not as good as Oakland's hand. Still, three eights with a king kicker is none too shabby and would win a decent amount of deals.

    Rotation: , , , ,

    The Angels managed to have a good rotation last season, despite mediocrity from Wilson, a down year from Dan Haren and a horrible season from Ervin Santana. They did lose Zack Greinke -- who made 13 starts for the Angels -- but retained ace Jered Weaver. Wilson needs to improve and Hanson ipzig coach Ralf Rangnick.Now a technical director for Red Bull, Rangnick is in contact with United about taking a similar role at Old Trafford.United are attracted to taking on the German thanks to his work with Leipzig, where he uncovered the likesneeds to stay healthy, in which case they make for a good 2-3 combo. Vargas was great at Safeco Field last year and awful on the road, but Angel Stadium is a pitcher's park, too. In his career, Vargas is 3-1 with a 2.27 ERA in 43 2/3 innings in his new home stadium. And Blanton can eat 190 not-good-but-not-terrible innings as the five.

    Hand they've been dealt

    Two pair with an ace kicker. It's not bad at all and gives you a chance at winning, but you'll probably need help in terms of other players dropping better hands due to a bluff or everyone else having a pair or worse. In baseball terms for the Angels, the help will be the offense.

    Rotation: , , , ,

    We know all about the ace at the front here. He's elite. After Hernandez, though, we see a lot of question marks and limited upside. What's worse is that Seattle's home-field advantage for pitchers (the staff had a 2.97 home ERA and 4.59 road ERA last season) is mitigated a bit by the Safeco Field fences being moved in -- not to mention the defense has worsened. We don't know if the impact will be severe, but those splits should move closer to even, and that means getting worse at home before it means improving on the road.

    Hand they've been dealt

    Well, there's the ace of spades. The best card in the deck. That's King Felix for you. As for the rest of the hand, we can't make much of it. While it might not be awful, the upside is limited. It's possible in a few years that King Felix will get some company from the likes of Danny Hultzen, James Paxton and Taijuan Walker, maybe even getting them up into flush or full house range (or more?). For now, it's Felix and a bunch of stray cards.

    Rotation: , , , ,

    Norris was 7-13 with a 4.65 ERA and 1.37 WHIP last season, and he sits atop the rotation. Harrell (11-11, 3.76) actually wasn't bad, but Lyles (5-12, 5.09) was. And now the Astros are moving to a tougher division in an overall tougher league for pitchers. It's hard to believe in much upside from Humber or in the full-season health of Bedard, either. Ugly is the word.

    Hand they've been dealt

    It can only get better from here. That's unsuited and one card away from a low straight. But, essentially, it's nothing. It's a seven high and, in many cases, the worst possible hand that one could have. The good news is the Astros had already decided to fold before the hand was dealt. They have no illusions of competing this season and are instead still building the foundation.

  • Hall of Fame ballot to further crowd in next several years

    content_img

    (Getty Images)

    In addition to quite a stellar list of leftovers from the 2013 BBWAA Hall of Fame ballot -- which yielded zero inductees -- next season we'll see a pretty stacked group of first-year eligibles, headlined by what appear to be three first-ballot Hall of Famers in Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas and Tom Glavine, not to mention worthy-of-discussion Mike Mussina and Jeff Kent. But that's not where the crowding ends.

    BBWAA Hall of Fame voting resultsRelated content

    Glance ahead to the 2015 first-year eligibles. We'll certainly see debates on Gary Sheffield and John Smoltz for several different reasons, but I feel like Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez are utter locks. I also worry that Martinez might be penalized for "only" winning 219 games. I hope not, because for a stretch of seven seasons (1997-2003, a ridiculous era for offense), Martinez was arguably the most dominant pitcher in baseball history, going 118-36 with a 2.20 ERA (213 ERA-plus!), 0.94 WHIP and an average of 252 strikeouts per season.

    On the 2016 ballot, we'll first see Ken Griffey Jr. and Trevor Hoffman, who seem to be obvious Hall of Famers to me. They'll be joined by Jim Edmonds and Billy Wagner, among others. Then, on the 2017 ballot, we'll see Ivan Rodriguez, Vladimir Guerrero, Miguel Tejada (unless he makes the Royals this year), Jorge Posada and Manny Ramirez join the fray.

    Further, let us realize that Chipper Jones has retired this offseason. So he'll join the ballot for the 2018 Hall of Fame class. 

    Considering we just witnessed Craig Biggio -- he of over 3,000 hits and the fifth-most doubles in history -- whiff on his first try, we know striker Francois Kamano.L'Equipe says Sevilla chief Monchi has stepped into the battle for Kamano, with talks underway with Bordeaux over a fee.Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is eager to land a new striker and also has lodged a bid for Birmingham City the stanEmery says Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Manchester United was a fair result for both teams.The Gunners equalised through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after Scott McTominay opened the scoring for the hosts.Neither side showed significant attacking prowess anddard is very high. Let's imagine that only Biggio, Maddux, Thomas, Glavine, Johnson, Martinez (Pedro, not Edgar) and Griffey get in before 2018. It's entirely possible only those guys get in, and I'm will hold out hope that at least these guys do -- otherwise it would be pretty ridiculous.

    If this comes to fruition, here's the potential ballot in 2018:

    Chipper Jones, Mark McGwire, Tim Raines, Edgar Martinez, Fred McGriff, Jeff Bagwell, Larry Walker, Rafael Palmeiro, Mike Piazza, Curt Schilling, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Mike Mussina, Jeff Kent, John Smoltz, Gary Sheffield, Jim Edmonds, Trevor Hoffman, Billy Wagner, Ivan Rodriguez, Vladimir Guerrero, Jorge Posada and Manny Ramirez.

    Remember, members of the BBWAA are only permitted to vote for a maximum of 10 players per ballot.

    Jack Morris, Lee Smith, Alan Trammell and Don Mattingly will have fallen off the ballot by then due to their 15 years being expired. Even without those guys, that's 24 names listed above potentially on the 2018 ballot. I think, obviously, there's a way to separate out several of the names for different reasons, but Jong says the players are still adjusting after a midseason change of coach.Quique Setien has been in the job for a couple of weeks now, having succeeded Ernesto Valverde, and De Jong was asked to compare the two."There are differences," the Dutchmanwe can all agree that's awfully crowded.

    For me personally, being a "Big Hall" guy and only penalizing those connected to PEDs who actually tested positive and served a suspension when testing was in place, the only ones from those 24 I wouldn't vote for would be Palmeiro (failed test, suspension), Edmonds (I feel like he falls short, statistically, upon only a cursory, initial glance), McGriff (falls short), Wagner (falls short), Posada (falls short) and Ramirez (failed test, suspension).

    So I just said there are potentially 18 guys I'd support for candidacy in 2018. This is without deep research on Edmonds, Wagner and Posada where I may be persuaded into a "yes" and it's also assuming seven deserving players get in before then. Even if you disagree with my standard, and many do, that's an awfully crowded ballot in the near future.
