BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Wacha and Martinez are both in uncharted waters innings-wise. Last year Wacha's shoulder broke at 100IP and he's past that now. Is it crazy for the Cards to expect (or make) these two to go 100IP more plus Oct?
(George M. from Bloomington, IL)
That seems like a lot for both, and particularly for Martinez. I do wonder if this means we'll see a little bit more of Tim Cooney and perhaps Tyler Lyons down the stretch. A trade is possible I suppose, but the Cardinals haven't been linked to anyone so I'd expect a low end deal if they do make one and not a trade for one of the big arms potentially on the market. (Mike Gianella)
2015-01-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of outside-the-box roles, would it be worth while for St. Louis to designate Marco Gonzales or one of their high-minors guys (Tim Cooney, etc.) as 1940s-style swingmen to get fantastic but fragile Adam Wainwright and Michael Wacha a rest every three weeks or so? Or have pitching roles become too specialized for that?
(Bill from New Mexico)
The specialization of pitching roles is part of the issue, and the other part is that there is no assured resting pattern that would definitely make a difference for Wainwright and Wacha. I love the idea of expanding roles and having pitchers dumped into buckets based on individual tolerance (ie 20 pitches, 40, 70, etc) rather than the pre-approved patterns of one hitter, one inning, or 100 pitches (depending on the role). (Doug Thorburn)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone knows the big prospect names that will be called up between now and July (e.g., Polanco, Bradley, Singleton. etc.), but are there less heralded MILB guys you think are on the cusp of helping MLB teams?
(PaulR from Queens)
Ian literally talks about nothing else. Less heralded MILB guys are the vital backbone of a savvy Scoresheeter. Letís offer Tim Cooney and Jake deGrom in the NL, and Mike Montgomery and Sean Nolin in the AL. Draft and follow Triple A guys are much more versatile than all but the best Low-A prospects in all but trade bait ability. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tim Cooney was lights out yesterday. Granted it was spring training, but it looked like he was located everything where he wanted it. Could his stuff play way up if he has plus plus control and command over multiple pitches, a la cliff lee?
(johnorpheus from St. Louis)
Cliff Lee has elite command. Cooney is sharp and can locate his stuff, but it has to be sharp to find sustainable results. He can't get away with a lot of mistakes. I like the arsenal and the command profile, but I don't think he's going to be anywhere close to a frontline arm at the highest level. (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Last year the Cardinals LHP looked barren. This year they had Kevin Siegrist and drafted Marco Gonzales and Rob Kaminsky and had Tim Cooney take a step forward. What gives?
(Bubba from St. Louis)
They felt like having a farm system with no weaknesses, I suppose. This is what they do. (Ronit Shah)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)The STL system gets a lot of hype but a couple SP I haven't heard much about - Tim Cooney and Alexander Reyes - had good years. Thoughts on these two in a deep dynasty league? Thanks.
(Tuco from STL)
I'm a bigger fan of Reyes and actually own him in a deep NL-Only league. Both are worth rostering depending on the depth of your league/minor league system. (Craig Goldstein)
