DateQuestionAnswer
2008-02-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know that way back when, Hamilton was throwing 95 mph. Is his outfield arm still 80 on the scouting scale?
(Or from Dallas)
A throwing question right off the bat, excellent.

In the essay "Expanding the Cannon" that you'll find in BP2K8 you'll see that among center fielders Josh Hamilton ranked 5th at +3.9 runs saved with his arm. That metric is composed of four components: hit advancement, throwing out runners stretching, fly ball advancement, and "other". Hamilton did well in both hit advancement and fly ball advancement (by virtue of just 4 of 35 runners advancing) although in 145 stretch opportunities he didn't nab anyone.

Of course he did all of this in just 62 adjusted games. In the essay I also describe the rate statistic scaled to 550 opportunities and there he ended up at +8.9 behind a few other guys with limited playing time (for example Jason Lane and Jacque Jones who had 29 and 72 adjusted games in center respectively. Among centerfielders who played more Ichiro Suzuki came out on top at +6.0 in 149 adjusted games with Andruw Jones and Bill Hall next in line.

By all accounts he does have a fine arm but of course in a smaller sample like this I would take these results with a grain of salt. It'll be interesting to see what he does with even more playing time in Texas in 2008. (Dan Fox)
2008-02-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Don't forget about Jason Lane!
(Bill from NYC)
I keep forgetting about him, actually. It's my brain trying to dispense with what should be unnecessary information. (Steven Goldman)
2008-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)I guess you didn't hear the Jason Lane rumors?!
(Gary from NJ)
I can't fathom a world where Jason Lane, at 31, coming off three sub-.320 OBPs, with 14 career innings at first base, is the answer. I have to assume it was a slow news day. (Joe Sheehan)
