BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)20 team dynasty league trade: Coco Crisp + Alfredo Simon + Joaquin Benoit for Desmond + Craig Gentry + Jean Machi, fair trade or obvious winner?
(Jon from Detroit)
Depends a lot on the situations. In a vacuum I like the Desmond-Gentry-Machi side more, but it very much depends on need in my opinion. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Astros fire Porter?
(Bill from Wichita)
Nah. Porter is not the first manager to yell at an opponent, nor the first to get involved in a beanball war. He won't be the last, either.

In 2008 Joe Maddon got into a yelling match with Coco Crisp. The argument started because Crisp slid too hard into second base, which he did in response to Jason Bartlett blocking the bag with his leg. (Bartlett was and remains the master of that move.) Sure enough, James Shields hit two Red Sox in the first inning of the next game, including Crisp, who then charged the mound. So even the calmest, smartest of managers can get into hairy situations.

I wouldn't have fired Maddon then and I wouldn't fire Porter now. (That's not to say I support plunking or headhunting or anything like that; I can understand if you want managers held accountable for this stuff.)

Anyway, Think about it from Porter's POV. He's had to watch his team get stomped for the past year-plus, and he doesn't have someone like Shields, who won't let his team get disrespected without retribution. We can debate whether that stuff matters, but neither of us are part of the culture. Those who are seem to think it matters, and probably will until someone gets hurt/plunkings get banned. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Power & speed combination: who are your top five AL picks this season?
(John from CT)
Mike Trout
Jason Kipnis
Alex Rios
Coco Crisp
Shanf Victorian (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Trying to temper expectations with Cubs prospects - is Almora likely looking at a Coco Crisp-like outcome? Some power, some steals, very good CF defense, OBP heavily dependent on BA. (Disclaimer: I am a Cubs fan - don't hold it against me!)
(Dan from Idaho)
I think Almora ends up considerably better than Coco Crisp, and I say that with a full appreciation for the player Crisp has become. Almora is very talented and has a great feel for the game. (Mark Anderson)
2013-10-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Michael Choice can crack the opening day roster for the A's? If so, what kind of season could you see him having? Thanks Matt!
(Mike from The Couch)
I think he could. It depends on whether or not there's an open spot in the outfield. How long is Josh Reddick out? Do the A's pick up Coco Crisp's option? Do they trade Cespedes and if so do they get an outfielder in return? (Matthew Kory)
2013-10-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you were Oakland, who stays and goes for 2014? Some choices are obvious -- Chris Young and Kurt Suzuki are gone. Grant Balfour and Bartolo Colon are probably not affordable. Brett Anderson, Seth Smith, and Josh Reddick are all non-tender candidates, though Smith and Reddick could be back because it doesn't look like Michael Choice is ready. How do they fix the middle of the infield? Jed Lowrie isn't going to put up this type of offense to make up for that poor of a glove and Eric Sogard and Albert Callaspo -- just, no. The Coliseum hides the total mediocre state of the A's rotation.
(Dave from Chicago)
Great question. Agree on Young and Suzuki. Balfour will probably price himself out of Oakland, a team that has no problem with a revolving door of closers. I think that Reddick sticks around, unless his homer counts exorbitantly drive up the price in his first year of arbitration. It will be interesting to see what Colon wants contractually, and the A's could easily bow out if he wants a multi-year deal. There is no way that the A's pay $8 million for Anderson next year, so his option will be declined, but it will be interesting to see if he re-signs on a one-year deal to re-establish his value. Coco Crisp will probably be taken up on his $7.5 million option, given his somewhat unique blend of speed and power in CF (as well as his clubhouse appeal). The A's like the power that Lowrie offers in the middle of the diamond, and their backup options are less than inspiring (Nakajima has turned out to be a waste of $6.5 million).

The A's pitching succeeds in many ways that are tough to see. Yes, the Coliseum and its immense foul territory certainly help, but the A's have an excellent system in place for pitcher development. They emphasize balance, posture, and pitch repetition - and they eschew the slide step! So they earn the benefit of the doubt when it comes to developing pitchers from within and identifying which arms to bring into the system.


On the jukebox: Aerosmith, "Ragdoll" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-04-25 12:30:00 (link to chat)Better fringe MVP candidate: Coco Crisp or... Shin-soo Choo? Jonathan Lucroy? Chris Davis?
(justarobert from Santa Clara, CA)
If Lucroy keeps getting as many borderline calls as he has thus far this season, he might be an actual MVP candidate. He's pretty much lapping the field right now. Of course, we're a ways away from a player getting award consideration because of his framing, so Choo makes a more likely choice. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Chris Young done anything positive in A's camp this year? Do you see him being a contributor to that team?
(Steve from IL)
He hasn't done much in the Cactus League at .231/.310/.385, but I don't really care about that. He's a really weird fit on the A's, who have Coco Crisp and perhaps Yoenis Cespedes who can play center field. So he's probably not worth as much to them as he might be elsewhere.

I wouldn't be stunned to see a trade from that outfield sometime this season if they develop a need in the rotation or elsewhere. (Zachary Levine)
2012-10-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)The A's outfield has fewer future openings than I expected, but will Michael Choice force his way into the discussion despite the injury setback?
(myshkin from Santa Clara)
Yes, Coco Crisp's contract expires after next year (though the A's do hold a team option) and I would expect to see Cespedes shift to center field and Choice slide into left when the latter is ready for the big leagues. (Bradley Ankrom)
2012-08-30 13:30:00 (link to chat)How many bases has Coco Crisp's arm cost the A's? At least a dozen, I'd say. Is his range worth carrying the arm?
(alanbw from COMO)
BP has an app for that! I asked Colin Wyers to look into this for me, and he tells me that Crisp's arm has cost the A's about two runs (roughly three quarters of that from left field). So, maybe more like eight bases. We have Crisp's FRAA, overall, at 2.9. So, our system thinks Coco has been a net positive on defense despite the arm, and that more or less seems to have been the case throughout his career. A weak arm can be frustrating--I spent a lot of time watching Bernie Williams and Johnny Damon during my formative years, so I understand this well--but I think the effects are often overblown. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Just wondering: 1> Which CC would you rather have for the rest of this year? Coco Crisp or Carl Crawford and 2> Could Jared Burton be the Twins closer next year? Thanks!
(Finley from Ontario)
If you're talking fantasy, probably Carl - although I wouldn't expect much beyond steals out of either of them. In real life, depends on how Crawford looks in the field I guess. At cost, definitely Coco though.

I suppose Burton could be the closer next year. He's having a pretty good season, but he looks to be a pretty normal reliever in general. I don't follow the Twins enough to know who their other options are. (Dan Turkenkopf)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)In mocks, I am seeing a ton of steals still on the board in the later rounds. What is your 2012 philosophy on steals?
(chiefsalsa from Utah)
You're right that there are a lot of late steals in mixed leagues this year. I like Ben Revere a lot for steals. Jose Altuve may be a decent MI speed source. Bonifacio can play everywhere. Even Coco Crisp is like a 15th rounder. Waiting on speed in a mixed league isn't a bad play this year. (Derek Carty)
2010-11-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)If the A's go into next season with the team as currently configured and the Rangers fail to sign Cliff Lee, are the A's legitimate contenders for the AL West?
(Dave from Chicago)
I like the pitching but where the hell is the offense supposed to come from on that team? They had three guys with TAvs above .275 last year, Jack Cust, Coco Crisp, and Daric Barton, and the first two are gone now. Yes, they'll have Chris Carter, but that's not enough.

Billy Beane's inability to build an offense in Oakland over the past several years is downright depressing. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Going forward in a standard league w/ OBP, SLG and OPS - Jay Bruce, Dexter Fowler, Coco Crisp or JD Drew?
(Jeff from South Jersey)
I like Fowler the least of all of those guys right now. Drew is the safe pick, Bruce the upside pick, and Crisp is hitting as well as he ever did before he busted his finger open in his first year with Boston (and has 22 steals!) to boot. So it depends on what you prefer/need more of--safety, upside, or if you want to get some steals out of it while you're at it. (Marc Normandin)
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina, I look at Oakland's line-up without anyone I'd like on my fantasy team and can't understand how Pecota has them playing 500 ball. What are your thoughts on the A's?
(lennyd from Portland)
Either you don't have a lot of teams in your league, or you're very picky, or maybe you have no use for steals; while I'm not wild about an outfield with Coco Crisp and Rajai Davis in it as everyday players, they will snag bags. For pitching, whether you're in a keeper league or not, just go grab Brett Anderson. Like steals, saves are a commodity you should want, and Andrew Bailey's the real deal. Position-related supply/demand issues might encourage you to snag Kurt Suzuki or Mark Ellis. Basically, it's going to be a better real-world ballclub than a generator of traditional category fantasy stars. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Alex Rios and now Juan Pierre? Who's advising the White Sox, Neel Kashkari?
(matuszek from Baltimore)
Chuck Tanner? Steve Boros? It's kooky, but then we're in a situation where we're debating the merits of Juan Pierre at $5 million plus versus a non-answer like Podzilla for under $2 million. Picking the former's the better answer if you start with the assumption neither's an offensive asset, since Podsednik's not a CF any more, but for that much? Why not check out Coco Crisp or Endy Chavez? (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)if you can project posey on the 2012 team, why not project bumgarner and alderson in the rotation. they might arrive before posey?
(BB from palo alto)
I'm a little more squeamish about making assumptions about the progression and health of pitchers in three years than I am about position players, for the simple reason that the position player is somewhat less likely to have a carer-altering shoulder or elbow surgery (don't tell Coco Crisp I said this). That said, even if we assume they'll be there and be good, there's still the matter of the rest of the lineup to figure out. The pitching staff could be good, the offense questionable, which is exactly the problem they have now. (Steven Goldman)
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Coco Crisp's ability to draw walks - sample size mirage, or a true gain that makes him a respectable leadoff hitter?
(BL from Bozeman)
He's flirted with this on occasion. I'm honestly not sure if it's real this time. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm kind of upset that Boston traded Coco Crisp. It seems like we don't have a suitable back-up for center field now. Am I worrying over nothing, or is this a legitimate lack on an otherwise deep team?
(Rob from Brighton)
You have a suitable backup for center field. However, he's starting. Ellsbury has to hit .310 to be viable, and he won't do that most years. Baldelli is the guy they want to be the fourth outfielder, which is an upside play in that role. If Baldelli can play 3-4 times a week, the Sox are fine. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-12-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)It appears to me that Dayton Moore in essence swapped Leo Nunez, RamRam, and any semblance of financial flexibility for Coco Crisp, Mike Jacobs and Kyle Farnsworth? Doesn't this series of moves seem, um, counter-productive? Do you see a worthwhile plan here?
(BL from Bozeman)
You left out spending $1.8 million on Horacio Ramirez (IIRC). I like the Crisp move as a win-now kind of transaction, but I savaged the Jacobs move for cause--some might think he's a win-now pickup, but he's just a placeholder, and Farnsworth and Ramirez are even less. This isn't progress, it's cosmetics, and like anything hastily slapped together, it'll melt in the summer sun. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rangers get Jav Vasquez & Manny del Carmen, Red Sox get Teagarden & Kiker, White Sox get Coco Crisp & Kris Johnson; who says no?
(niketour2 from oregon)
Rangers ... and I guess now the Royals. (Will Carroll)
2008-08-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pretty ironic that Kelly Shoppach is the best player in the Coco Crisp/Andy Marte trade, eh? Keeper question: choose two from the list of Beltran, Berkman, Hart, Guerrero, Sabathia, Billingsley.
(Peter from Beyond the Boxscore)
Shoppach sure would look good in a Red Sox uni, and hell, he can even catch a knuckler. (Marc Normandin)
2008-03-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat. Congrats on the publication of BP2008, your best work ever. The NY papers say the Mets turned down Coco Crisp for Angel Pagan. That doesn't sound like it really happened, but if it did, is Omar Minaya insane?
(fielding99 from NYC)
I strongly, strongly doubt the validity of that particular rumor. Crisp isn't Tris Speaker or anything, but he's more than a fourth-fifth outfielder. He can be a regular and be a positive for someone. Pagan isn't at that level. If you can make that deal, especially given how fragile the Mets are, you practically climb through the phone to sign the papers. I strongly doubt that Minaya had that chance.

2008-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much of an upgrade would Brian Roberts be for the Cubs over DeRosa at 2B. Obviously, he'll give you more steals, but their other numbers from 2007 look quite similar. Along the same lines, it appears the Cubs aren't sold on Felix Pie being their starting center fielder, as they seem to be putting out feelers on players like Coco Crisp. Should they be looking for a center fielder?
(sinfonian11 from Champaign, IL)
I was boarding a plane the other day when I heard, of all things, a Cub fan belittling Felix Pie's offense. Which means absolutely nothing, of course, since Freddy the Frequent Flier from Elgin is not responsible for setting the team's lineup. But it does go to show you how these sorts of memes tend to flow from the team brass on through the media and into the perceptions of ordinary fans. Pie got all of 194 plate appearances in the major leagues last year, and much of that time came in crappy situations where he was being shuffled into and out of the lineup and had to press for at-bats. He's hit like gangbusters on the other hand over nearly 900 plate appearances at Iowa the past two seasons. It would be a shame if the Cubs' misunderstanding of small sample sizes got in the way of Pie's development. (Nate Silver)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you see the Red Sox doing with their Crisp/Ellsbury conundrum? Is Crisp still on the team when they return from Japan? Besides Tex and Minn, other possible trade destinations?
(DC from Tim)
I really think Crisp will have been dealt before they go; I wonder if Homeland Security will raise a stink if the reserved seat is in somebody else's name for the guy who gets to go in Crisp's place. "You don't look like Coco Crisp," might elicit the start of a Snake Plisken-like "I get that a lot." (Christina Kahrl)
2008-02-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Melky Cabrera's got a pretty interesting set of comparables: Carlos Beltran, Coco Crisp, Pete Rose, and Hal McRae. Some good-looking players but (besides Beltran) nobody with too much power. What's the outlook on him? Is he the Yankee CFer of the future?
(Jim Leyritz from Florida)
It's confusing, isn't it? This is what I meant about the occasional inscrutability of the comps. If I recall correctly, at Cabrera's age, Beltran had the one bad year of his career... If Coco Crisp is your worst-case scenario, that's not bad, but the Yankees don't have a Jacoby Ellsbury to come along and rescue them... My suspicion is that Crisp is closer to the mark than Beltran or even McRae. The power just isn't there right now, might not ever be there. That leaves us with what... A player who might peak at something pretty decent without rising to the level of the All-Star game. That's not bad, you enjoy it... And then you trade Roberto Kelly for Paul O'Neill. (Steven Goldman)
2008-01-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much of a chance does Coco Crisp have of getting back to 2005 form at this point?
(poludamas from Cambridge)
This is getting a bit semantic, but I wonder whether Crisp was really a better player in 2005 than he is today or he just had a career year. With that said, we do show him with a mild breakout, at .278/.338/.407. Given his defense in center field, there are at least 20 teams in major league baseball that would be vastly improved by that performance. (Nate Silver)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Am I dreaming or does Coco Crisp for Taylor Teagarden or Max Ramirez fit into a reasonable proposal?
(Joe from Tewksbury, MA)
It's certainly the sort of thing worthy of a few daydreams in Red Sox Nation, because Tek isn't getting any younger. However, there are questions about both when it comes to whether or not they'll be able to remain behind the plate. (Christina Kahrl)
