TrendSpotting

Have Jocketty & Co. started a new "moneyball" trend? Other teams around the league are scooping up all the "projects," very bandwagonesque. The idea itself makes perfect financial sense in a market gone mad, where Paul Byrd has to deposit his paycheck with a dump truck. The upside of it's huge, see Carpenter, Chris. However, like so many other trends, you kind of have to wonder about some of the actions taken in an effort to keep up, see Simontacchi, Jason. I could be way off here, and this idea has been around for a long time. I don't have the time or energy to research that point and present it in chart form, come on it's Friday afternoon, I shouldn't even be sitting here at this point in the day. If my observation is correct and this is a recent trend, we can start watching for the various extremes of it now. Reactionaries will continue to pay Paul Byrd oodles of money to round out their rotation, and the faithful will continue to sign Simontacchis and Ponsons. It merits some attention.

Appreciate the Teenage Fanclub reference. Very nice. Takes me back to about senior year in high school.
