MLB Postseason

During the off-season and around the trade deadline, general managers become household names. It’s their time to shine. It’s the ultimate goal for GM’s to take a back seat and let the team they’ve put together take the spot light. So, as the playoffs begin, we take a look back at some of the off-season and deadline moves that propelled these teams into October:

St.  Louis Cardinals:

GM John Mozeliak needed the Cardinals to make the playoffs after replacing Walt Jocketty, the man responsible for the 2006 World Series winning team.  Mozeliak was questioned after letting local legend shortstop David Eckstein go in the ’08 off-season, then again felt the heat when Mozeliak let Aaron Miles, Filipe Lopez go to be replaced by Khlil Greene and Joe Thurston.  But, Mozeliak pulled the trigger acquiring Mark DeRosa and Matt Holliday at the deadline.  Other key players were lefty specialists Trever Miller and Dennys Reyes.  Here’s a look at major signings, trades and stats by the Cardinals:

Signed Dennys Reyes to 2-year, $3 million dollar deal.

-74 Games, 0-2, 3.12 ERA.  1.71 ERA vs. Left-handed hitters

Traded Chris Perez for Mark DeRosa

-.228 avg. 10 HR 28 RBI in 68 games

Traded Chris Duncan for Julio Lugo

-.277 avg. 2 HR 13 RBI 6 stolen bases in 51 games

Traded Clayton Mortensen for Matt Holliday

-.353 avg. 13 HR 55 RBI in 63 games

Traded Mark Worrell for Khalil Greene

-.200 avg. 6 HR 24 RBI in 77 games

Signed Trever Miller for 1-year, $2 million

-4-1, 2.06 ERA in 70 games, 0.31 ERA vs. Left-handed batters

Signed John Smoltz after his mid-season release from Boston

-1-3, 4.26 ERA in 7 games started

Boston Red Sox:

After losing to the Rays in game seven of the 2008 ALCS, the Red Sox restocked, in the pitching staff especially.  They added key relievers Ramon Ramirez, Tasashi Saito and starters Brad Penny and John Smoltz (neither of which ended the season with the Sox).  Then, come deadline time, Epstein made his move getting star catcher Victor Martinez.  Here are the key signings and trades this off-season and deadline for the Red Sox:

Acquired Ramon Ramirez from Kansas City in exchange for Coca Crisp

-7-4, 2.84 ERA in 70 games

Signed Takashi Saito for 1-year, $1.5 million with club option for 2010

-3-3, 2.43 ERA in 56 games

Signed Brad Penny for 1-year, $5 million

-7-8, 5.61 ERA in 24 games started

Signed John Smoltz for 1-year, 5.5 million

-2-5, 8.33 in 8 games started

Signed Rocco Baldelli 1-year, $500,000

-.253 avg. 7 home runs 23 RBI in 62 games

Signed Nick Green to minor league contract worth $550,000

-.236 avg. 6 home runs 35 RBI in 103 games

Traded Adam LaRoche for Casey Kotchman

-.218 avg. 1 HR 7 RBI in 39 games

Traded for Alex Gonzalez, who has $6 million club option for 2010

-.284 avg. 5 HR 15 RBI in 44 games

Traded for Victor Martinez for reliever Justin Masterson and two minor leaguers

-.336 avg. 8 HR 41 RBI in 56 games

Traded for Billy Wagner who has an $8 million option for 2010

-1-1, 1.98 ERA in 15 games

Colorado Rockies:

The outlook for the Rockies wasn’t bright early in the season.  They traded away star outfielder Matt Holiday and lost closer Brian Fuentes to free agency.  The Rockies started out 18-28 under manager Clint Hurdle, but fired him and named Jim Tracy manager.  Tracy guided them into the playoffs despite a lack of off-season or deadline help.  The biggest acquisition was pitcher Jason Marquis, who at mid-season looked to be a Cy Young candidate.  Here’s a look at other Rockies moves:

Traded Matt Holliday for Huston Street

-4-1, 3.06 ERA 35 saves in 64 games

Traded for Jason Marquis in exchange for reliever Luis Vizcaino

-15-13, 4.04 ERA in 33 starts

Traded for Rafael Bentancourt in exchange for a minor leaguer

-3-1, 1.78 ERA in 32 games

Traded for Jose Contreras in exchange for cash and a minor leaguer

-1-0, 1.59 ERA in 7 games

Los Angeles Angels:

The Angels caught lightning with Bobby Abreu, who they signed for only $6 million in the off-season.  The Angels won the bidding war with the St. Louis Cardinals for closer Brian Fuentes and called upon the lefty to fill the shoes of all-time single-season saves leader Francisco Rodriguez.  Fuentes struggled at times, but finished with an American League leading 48 saves.

Signed Brian Fuentes to 2-year, $17.5 million

-1-5, 3.93 ERA 48 saves in 65 games

Signed Matt Palmer for $400,000

-11-2, 3.93 ERA in 40 games and 13 starts

Signed Bobby Abreu for 1-year, $6 million

-.293 avg., .390 on-base percentage 15 HR 103 RBI

Traded for Scott Kazmir in exchange for two minor leaguers.  Angels absorb Kazmir’s entire $20 million

-2-2 1.73 ERA in 6 start

Los Angeles Dodgers:

The Dodgers were extremely active before and during the season.  Aside from the signing of Orlando Hudson, they re-signed Manny Ramirez and Rafael Furcal.  Mid-season the Dodgers picked up some key elements sure to help them in the post season.  Jim Thome will be a off-the-bench threat, George Sherrill was a dominant closer with the Orioles and Ronnie Belliard has been helpful down the stretch as a utility infielder hitting for a .351 average.

Signed Orlando Hudson for 1-year, $3.38 million with possible 4.6 million in incentives

-.283 avg. 9 HR 35 doubles in 149 games

Signed Jeff Weaver to minor league deal

-6-4, 3.65 ERA in 28 games 7 starts

Signed Randy Wolf for 1-year, $5 million

-11-7, 3.23 ERA in 34 starts

Traded for George Sherrill in exchange for two minor leaguers

-1-0, 0.65 ERA in 30 games

Traded for Jon Garland in exchange for a player to be named later

-3-2, 2.73 ERA in 6 starts for the Dodgers

Traded for Ronnie Belliard in exchange for a minor leaguer

-.351avg. 5 HR 17 RBI in 24 games

Traded for Jim Thome in exchange for a minor leaguer

-.235 avg. 3 RBI in 17 games

Signed Vicente Padilla to a minor league deal.  Dodgers paid less than $100,000 of his $12 million salary because he was released by the Texas Rangers mid-season.

-4-0, 3.20 ERA in 7 starts

Philadelphia Phillies:

The Phillies couldn’t have picked a better left-handed hitter from the free agent market to play in Citizens Bank Park than Raul Ibanez, he made the all-star team and hit 34 home runs.  Their mid-season trade for Cliff Lee turned out to be a blessing, though Roy Halladay was the Phils first choice.  Role players like Chan Ho Park and Pedro Martinez also helped eat innings for the Phillies this season.

Signed Raul Ibanez for 3-year, $30 million

-.272 avg. 34 HR 93 RBI in 134 games

Traded for Cliff Lee in exchange for five minor leaguers

-7-4, 3.39 ERA in 12 starts

Signed Pedro Martinez for 1-year, $1 million

-5-1, 3.63 ERA in 9 starts

New York Yankees:

No shortage of off-season moves for the Yankees as usual, the Yankees reloaded their pitching staff with aces C.C. Sabathia and A.J. Burnett.  They also picked up a potential MVP Mark Teixeira and bomber Nick Swisher.  No doubt the Yankee all-star team is the favorite to win the World Series, they have been since March because of these moves.

Traded for Nick Swisher for Wilson Betemit and two minor leaguers

-.249 avg. 29 HR 82 RBI in 150 games

Signed C.C. Sabathia for 7-years, $161 million

-19-8, 3.37 ERA 197 Strikeouts in 34 starts

Signed Mark Teixeira for 8-years, $180 million

-.292 avg. 39 HR 122 RBI

Signed A.J. Burnett for 5-years, $82.5 million

-13-9, 4.04 195 Strikeouts in 33 starts

Minnesota Twins:

For a team that relies heavily on their farm system in Rochester, NY to provide talent, they did make a few pickups mid-season that helped down the stretch.  Orlando Cabrara hit a home run to give Minnesota the lead in the one-game playoff against the Detroit Tigers.

Traded for Orlando Cabrera in exchange for a minor leaguer

-.280 5 HR 36 RBI 11 stolen bases in 59 games

Traded Carl Pavano for a player to be named later

-5-4, 4.64 ERA in 12 starts

Traded for John Rauch for a player to be named later

-1-0, 1.72 ERA in 17 games
