BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is Vogelbach strictly a trade chip for the Cubs? Also, ETA on Almora?
(Jack from Chicago)
I'm afraid to answer any Vogelbach questions without angering my colleague Bret Sayre. These situations tend to work themselves out; remember how people used to wring their hands about Ryan Howard in Philadelphia when Jim Thome was locked in? I suppose the Cubs could move him, but it would take a lot.

My educated guess on Albert Almora would be 2015. (Mike Gianella)
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)So if Gallo cuts down on his Ks he will grown into a Jim Thome. I actually don't think that sounds too crazy. You?
(Jim from NY)
I think the most accurate comp is probably an Adam Dunn type. (Jason Cole)
2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)In your "Overthinking" article, you tabbed the Rays as the team that you think should sign Hafner this offseason. Other than age, what is the difference between Jim Thome and Travis Hafner these days? With Hafner's injury-riddled past, wouldn't it be "safer" to go with an older and somewhat consistent Thome instead?
(jlarsen from chicago)
I love Thome, but I think he's reached an age at which even Hafner is a better bet to stay healthy. Thome just hasn't been able to avoid the DL over the last couple seasons (and yes, I know that's true of Hafner, too). For what it's worth, PECOTA projects Thome for a TAv about 10 points higher. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)This is what I'm talking about. Maybe Singleton can hit .280, like when his BABIP spikes and he's 28, but looking at his profile it's hard to see him hitting more than about .250 or.260, year to year. Jim Thome and Ryan Howard both hit over .300 in the minors. Don't you think Singleton would have to make some sort of change before we can forecast him for anything like .280 with 25 homers?
(flyingdutchman from Oakland, CA)
Part of projecting a prospect to the major league level is the attempt at projecting what steps/adjustments they are capable of making as they develop. I think Singleton has the feel for hitting and the overall approach to ultimately hit .280 consistently at the big league level. If he hits at that level, the power will absolutely play in the 25-home range. (Mark Anderson)
2012-06-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)From the Indians in 90s, who on their roster had the most value?
(Paul from DC)
Offhand I'd guess Jim Thome was the most valuable during their run, followed by Albert Belle, who didn't stay for all of it, and Manny Ramirez, who was limited by his defense (not that Thome wasn't). I don't have the means to run a query at the moment to confirm this, but I'll see if I can get to something like that soon. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many homers will Jim Thome hit for the White Sox next year as he continues his "once more with feeling" tour of major-league baseball?
(Jake from Joliet)
However many it takes to convince Jim and the league that he should keep playing for a few more years. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Good chat. Over the last 15 - 20 years, who are some of your favorite players to go to the ballpark and see play and why?
(Jerome from T Hills)
Some of them are obvious - warts and all, I'm thrilled that I've gotten to see Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez as often as I have over the years - both have provided some incredible moments. Mariano Rivera, of course. I'm lucky to have seen Tim Raines and Rickey Henderson relatively late in their careers. Ken Griffey Jr., Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner and Randy Johnson were pretty special because the Mariners were a favorite before I came to New York, and a common point of reference for me and my brother. Manny Ramirez, when he was still an Indian, was a lot of fun. Jim Thome was a beast who seemed to homer every time he came to town.

Going further back, I'm thrilled I got to see Fernando Valenzuela pitch in person, even if it was only spring training. Likewise for seeing Reggie Jackson in spring training - both were huge parts of my childhood and adolesence. My first regular season major league game was Roger Clemens vs. Nolan Ryan in 1989 (read about it in today's column). That was incredibly special in retrospect because Ryan always meant a great deal to me.

I'm sure I've forgotten somebody, but that's a good start. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, If a player's career ended after the 2011 season (compared to if his career had ended a year earlier), who most significantly raised his chances of eventually making it into the Hall of Fame? I'm just asking for conversational purposes -- no need to generate JAWS scores.
(Detroit Michael from Detroit, MI)
Jim Thome reaching the 600-homer plateau, with all of the extra attention it brought him, probably sealed the deal. And of course now Mariano Rivera has the saves record, so he's obviously in ;-) (Jay Jaffe)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)Does the Tribe's acquisition of Jim Thome change the AL Central race in your eyes?
(The Osa from Cleveland)
Thome is a great guy and a nice story, but I still think that race will come down to pitching. (John Coppolella)
2011-08-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Give me a good reason why the city of Tampa Bay deserves a team like the Rays.
(Bud Selig from New York)
Because they were top five in radio and television last season - better ratings than the die-hard fanbase is Los Angeles and Boston. I don't know if you saw the video highlight of Jim Thome's 1st career home run, but it came in an early September game at Yankee Stadium that had 14,000 people in it. If an area that has 10.5% unemployment and 4.5 million people within an hour can get 12K to a meaningless Rays/Royals tilt, certainly an area with 14 million can draw more than 14K to any game, no? Oh yea, GIVE ME REPLAY ALREADY! (Jason Collette)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Brendan Ryan and Jack Wilson manning the middle infield, the Mariners seem to have gone overboard in their attempts to improve their defense at the expense of their offense. I know a run saved is just as valuable as a run scored, but isn't the spread of runs produced by hitters wider than the spread of runs saved by fielders, making a focus on improving defense less beneficial than a focus on improving offense, especially for a team as offensively challened as the Mariners? (Excepting, of course, the idea of someone like Jim Thome playing shortstop).
(Jambois from Middleburg)
I wonder if the Ryan-Wilson tandem was as much a reaction to available talent as a doubling down on last year's gloves uber alles strategy. As I said, there's not a ton of middle infield talent out there right now. That said, I think your formulation is pretty much correct. Arguably, no team of the last 40 years needed an offensive infusion more than the Mariners, whose 2010 offense ranks among the worst in the history of the game. (Steven Goldman)
2011-02-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are the White Sox too "station-to-station" or do Ramirez, Beckham, and Rios provide enough athleticism to keep them from being a high-priced softball team? Also, do you see Peavy approaching anywhere near effectiveness this year?
(richardkr34 from Saint Paul)
Let me admit my bias: I love high-priced softball teams, like the '83 Sox and the Daulton/Kruk Phillies. Speed on the bases is nice, but avoiding outs and hitting home runs is more important. Would the Sox have been better last year with the lumbering carcass of Jim Thome at the plate and on the basepaths? Apparently Ozzie didn't think so, but he was wrong.

That being said, the speed of Ramirez, Beckham and Rios is certainly nice to have. (Ken Funck)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite players to watch this season? Who ya rootin' for?
(Goo Goo the Cat from Prowlin' Around, PA)
Rooting for? Well, I suppose I'm no supposed to root for players, but c'mon, how can you help it? I'm hoping to see John Danks bust out and get the sort of attention he deserves, and for Gordon Beckham to put everything together and be the star we thought he'd be. I want to see Wandy Rodriguez deliver that back half over a full season. I'm looking forward to seeing Carlos Zambrano get back to being in the news for his pitching. I'm wondering if Andy LaRoche puts up more WARP than any other NRI in anybody's camp if he can win the A's job at third base. I want to see Jim Thome's 600th career home run in person. I want to enjoy a full season of Starlin Castro at shortstop, having had to spend too much time away from Chicago last summer. I want to see what Mike Stanton and Logan Morrison do for the Fish, since that's about as entertaining a tandem of hitting prospects of similar vintage on any team anywhere. That's a few, but there are more. (Christina Kahrl)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)who is the 1 FA who has surprised you in terms of not yet finding a home for 2011?
(frank from vegas)
It was Jim Thome. At this point I would say Manny Ramirez. Not because I expect him to be fantastic, but because from almost day one of free agency, he and Scott Boras basically said "Will work for food", and there are plenty of teams who could use a DH willing to post a .400 OBP on the cheap. (Marc Normandin)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)It's the baseball apocalypse. You can only pick five current major league ballplayers to save. You don't have to base it on stats or team or likeability or anything. Who do you pick?
(hannah from bay area)
What a question! I love watching Adrian Gonzalez hit, so I would like that to continue. Logan Morrison's Twitter account has guaranteed him a spot in this Final Five. Jim Thome can be saved, but only if he promises to sit in BP and hit taters all day long for my amusement as repayment for doing so. Someone needs to pitch to these guys, so it should be Jamie Moyer if for no other reason than he's Jamie Moyer. Willie Bloomquist would probably survive whether I picked him or not. Maybe he's baseball's version of the cockroach. (Marc Normandin)
2010-11-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Most likely landing place for Manny in 2011?
(garethbluejays2 from Newcastle, UK)
Unless something's changed in the past week or so, the Toronto rumors make sense. Beyond that, obviously, it's going to be an AL team with a DH opening. Maybe Minnesota if Jim Thome doesn't come back, or Tampa Bay if his price comes down. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-11-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What was teh last deal you were wild about?
(Tonyu from Albuquerque)
Jim Thome to Minnesota for 1 year, $1.5 million, probably. Andy Pettite 1 year, $5.5 million for 2009 was pretty sweet, too. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Just how big is Sandoval's ass? What about Jim Thome's?
(biteme from Lake Forest)
It makes Jim Thome's look that that of a 19-year-old runway model. How's that? (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Matt, Today in the GM for a Day article on the Red Sox, Jay Jaffe said he would cut bait on David Ortiz and bring in someone else at a lesser cost (he mentioned Jim Thome, Jack Cust and Russell Branyon as possibilities). This struck me as thinking too hard. Sure Ortiz will be over paid, but he's also likely to be better than those guys, and in the end isn't this a perfect opportunity to flex that big payroll? What do you think?
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
I haven't gotten a chance to read it, but I'll probably hear him out later this afternoon. I certainly wouldn't let Ortiz go this year-- he's a great DH, and he's worth as much to the Red Sox as any team they'd trade him to. Maybe going forward, they might have some concerns before bringing him back in 2012 though. (Matt Swartz)
2010-10-12 12:00:00 (link to chat)The Twins OF is looking mighty crowded. With guys like Ben Revere and Joe Benson (to a lesser extent) knocking on the door, who do think they might try and move in the off-season?
(Tobias from Minnesota)
They've got the option on Kubel at just under $5MM, which is nowhere near the lock it looked like it would be after 2009. There's also the question of Jim Thome, who is just totally and completely awesome in pretty much every way. One possible solution would be to let Kubel DH and make room in right. But that means no more taters for Jimmers. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)In their prime, who would you rather have in your lineup, Jim Thome or Reggie Jackson?
(Cambridge from Cambridge)
Reggie Jackson by a whisker. He was just such a dynamic hitter and his October record sets for itself. (John Perrotto)
2010-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you rank Jim Thome among possible Hall of Famers? There doesn't seem to be much buzz except from the bees. Care to stir up that nest?
(WARPspeedfreak from Headspace)
I certainly think Thome belongs, and so does JAWS, which had him one point ahead of the 1B standard at the outset of the year. Even so, he's well behind Frank Thomas, Jeff Bagwell, Mark McGwire on the scale, and below Keith Hernandez and Will Clark. Not having an MVP award has led to the perception that he's just an accumulator, and I think he's gonna be a guy whose candidacy gets fought over for little reason. He belongs, though. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why on Earth would the Nats trade Adam Dunn for Edwin Jackson? If they really can't re-sign him, wouldn't compensation picks beat that deal anyway?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
Banking on compensation picks can be a little dicey, since you might not get what you expect depending on who signs where (see: CC Sabathia and the Milwaukee Brewers). I'm not particularly bullish on Jackson, but he does have stuff and can pitch in the majors now, two important things for a Nationals team trying to build some excitement and a brand. I don't think it's that bad a move, depending on what other teams are offering.

For the White Sox part of this thing, it'll be a shame if they have to give up someone like Daniel Hudson to rent Dunn, when they could just as easily have signed an ever-willing Jim Thome last spring. (Ken Funck)
2010-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the reasoning behind Ozzie Guillen choosing to go without a real DH? Is he planning on moving Quentin there but he doesn't want to talk about it yet? What gives?
(Cris E from St Paul, MN)
Employing a full-time DH has its cost, not only in payroll but also in the ability to give your position players - particularly those that might be a bit banged up - some rest without losing their bats from the lineup. Not having a full-time DH gives your lineup more flexibility.

Now, as to the particulars of the White Sox lineup, I'd have brought Jim Thome back, because I see a whole lot of holes all over the place. And note with no small amount of glee that Andruw Jones is projected to hit .219/.318/.389. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Shouldn't the Twins finally step up and grab a dedicated DH in Jim Thome. He's past prime but for what he'll cost it would surely benefit them to run him out there in 100-120 games vs. righties no? They had BRENDAN HARRIS DH in the playoffs for christ-sakes!
(WilliamWilde from Boston, MA)
I think Thome still has value. It's worth noting, however, that the Twins had the fourth best offense in the league last year. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, the White Sox are only paying Pierre $8 million ($3 this year, $5 next year). The Dodgers are picking up the rest.
(JasonC23 from Huntley, IL)
Witness the virtue of waiting to write up a deal on the basis of confirmed reports. ;) That's still not cause to do handstands, but it's certainly better. And give that structure, it doesn't preclude their having a few million to throw Jim Thome's way. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much do you think Mike Cameron, Jim Thome, and Nick Johnson will sign for?
(David from Sonoma State University, CA)
Cameron for two and $22, Johnson for two and $18, Thome...I think will retire. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-23 16:00:00 (link to chat)How does Torre not pinch hit Thome for Martin? Defend this decision in 10,000 words or less.
(aaronbailey52 from Alaska)
I can't, and that's without even adding in my disgust for Russell Martin over the last two seasons, but that's a story for another day. You get Jim Thome for that specific situation. Do you think the Phillies traded for Matt Stairs to let Pedro Feliz hit in a spot like that? Even if the Phillies counter with Eyre, I'll trust Thome against Eyre more than Martin vs Madson any day of the week. It was just a very poor decision and an example of planning ahead at the expense of the present moment. (Eric Seidman)
2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)what do you think Lance Berkman's trajectory is going forward? Is he the type of player who won't age gracefully?
(dscala from manchester, NH )
No, I can see a very slow decline, comparable a bit to Jim Thome's very graceful long goodbye. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)As an A's fan, i'm counting down the days when chavez contract expires. Did A's possibly get future 3b options in BYU Steve Parker and Cincinnati's Mike Spica?
(shawn from vegas)
Obviously it's POSSIBLE, or they wouldn't have been drafted. Obviously it's DOUBTFUL or they would have gone higher. Right when the draft happens, it's understandable to get hyped about at 11th round pick, but it's still an ELEVENTH ROUND PICK. The guy went 333rd overall, which has gotten you Jim Thome and NO OTHER PLAYER IN HISTORY with more than nine home runs or four wins on the mound. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Since we're on the topic of HOFers and I am currently watching the White Sox, is Jim Thome a hall of famer?
(jalee121 from St. Charles, Illinois)
Hell, yes. He's not done yet, either. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-04-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the ETA on Gordon Beckham. He's been tearing it up in AA. Also, do you see him moving to 2B in the majors? He's still at SS in the minors.
(bam022 from Chicago)
The reason to play him at short is so that you'll move Ramirez to CF, but that presumes Ramirez improves on last year and is better overall than Anderson. I don't think you move Ramirez to 2B, because he's terrible there and the bat doesn't play.

At what point do we scratch our heads and wonder why we're making so many decisions around Alexei Ramirez? Maybe he should be the supersub, starting four days a week at four positions and pinch-running for Jim Thome the other days. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please tell me the Abreu to the White Sox is a joke. I just don't see where he plays and why they want another player past his prime.
(jalee121 from (Normal, Illinois))
He'd help the team OBP, and the White Sox window is basically now, so a good player on a one-year deal for small money is a good idea. Because of the different configuration of US Cellular, you can suffer the bad D he'd create a bit more readily. I mean, they were going to run Ken Griffey Jr. out there last year, so that bridge has been crossed.

Abreu > Konerko, so you could also teach someone first base. Or go back to whatever pawn shop Jim Thome sold his glove to. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-12-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for taking the time for the chat. We all know there have been substantial talks with a couple of teams regarding Jermaine Dye, but is there any information on players like Bobby Jenks, Paul Konerko, and Jim Thome, who are all possibilities to be traded this offseason?
(Ben from Work)
It appears that the White Sox are going to hang on to Jenks now and there never seemed to be much of a market for Konerko and Thome, who both have no-trade clauses. (John Perrotto)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who has the most gas left in the tank: Adrian Beltre, Jim Thome, Paul Konerko, Raul Ibanez, or Chone Figgins? Which ones would you want on your team in '09?
(McGoldrick from Los Angeles)
That's not really a comparison of like to like, but I'd pick Figgins from among that crew, if only because speed guys seem to retain value wel enough. Beyond that, I'd take Beltre, but I can't say I'm wildly enthusiastic about any of them. It's easier to suggest that I'd put Paulie at the bottom of the pile, and work up from there. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do I improve my offense in the off season?
(Kenny Williams from California)
Was there anything really wrong with it? It was predicated on the home run and I'd like to see more focus on some on-base guys, but I could say that about 20 teams. A healthy Carlos Quentin, a more experienced Alexei Ramirez, and hope that they can get similar performances from Jim Thome and Jermaine Dye is their big hope. That's going to be a really tough division next year and I think the Sox have more room to improve than most of the other teams there. (Will Carroll)
2008-03-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)How about our Opening D(el)ay today?
(BrettG from Worthington, OH)
White Sox 2, Indians 0 in the bottom of the first. Sabathia gave up a HR to Jim Thome (#508). Let's automatically jump to the conclusion that Sabathia is still tired from last year and/or pitching tight because of his contract situation. Someone will. (Steven Goldman)
2008-01-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Colby Rasmus and when do you expect him in the majors.
(Mike from St.Louis)
In our celebrity Scoresheet League we ran last season, I drafted Rasmus late in the draft, and then when I needed to trade for a thumper late in the year, I traded Andrew McCutchen for Jim Thome rather than give up Rasmus. So I think he's a stud. If Jay Bruce is Larry Walker, Rasmus is Larry Walker Lite. Just temper your expectations for 2008. (Rany Jazayerli)
2008-01-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What says Pecota on Alex Gordon? More or less an extension of his 2nd half?
(dtimmeny from NYC)
More or less: we have him at .270/.346/.465. What's a little discouraging is that it doesn't see him getting a whole heck of a lot better hereafter: his peak is projected to come in 2010 at .271/.357/.475. He could be an always-a-bridesmaid type of player. With that said, there are still a couple of very encouraging names like Jim Thome lower down his comp list. (Nate Silver)
2008-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alright, what about any current players likely to be underrated by HoF voters? Craig Biggio?
(Nick from NYC)
Lots, I think. Not Biggio, who has the "scrappy" card, and reached the magic number he didn't really need.

A whole bunch of pitchers whose win totals reflect the changes in the game stand to be judged harshly: Mussina jumps out at me as the vanguard of this group.

There are some players, such as Jim Thome, who are more than qualified but who may find themselves struggling to get in as voters overcompensate for the era. Note that this DIDN'T happen for pitchers who played in the 1962-68 period, because preventing runs is morally superior to producing them.

Especially on deadline. (Joe Sheehan)

2009-11-02 17:00:002009 WS Game FiveThe poor man's Johnny Mize '49, or perhaps his Jim Thome '09. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-21 17:00:00NLCS Game 5One more baserunner and you need to get Jim Thome up this inning. (David Laurila)
2009-10-15 17:00:002009 NLCS Game One (Phillies/Dodgers)As much as I love Jim Thome, he's been reduced to a human chess piece for the most part during his Dodger days. (J.A. Jaffe)
2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtableBack from dinner, back to the questions...

Aaron W. (Kentucky): Jim Thome, Hall-of-Famer? Sounds good to me.

His candidacy does have its shortcomings in the traditional sense, with no MVP awards and a spotty post-season record. On the other hand, he's in much, much better shape than Helton according to JAWS, , above average on both career and peak. It probably helps that he's positioned to make a run at 600 homers, though at 564, he probably needs two years to get there. Barring any surprises from Selena Roberts, I think he'll get in. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game OneNoel (Chicago): "BTW, no one has mentioned Bonds yet with respect to players that had the shift applied to them."

Or Darrell Evans either. I've seen it a bit against Jim Thome. I wonder if they shifted against guys like Ben Oglivie or Mike Easler, because frankly I don't recall if they did or did not. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesQuick question with Jim Thome getting to lead off the second. Is Jim Thome suddenly Jack Cust, or is Jack Cust suddenly Jim Thome.

Also, and I hate to harp on this as I'm a bit of a videophile, but it's ironic that TBS' little ads about how cool it is that they're in HD with 5.1 audio arent' really in HD. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-09-30 16:30:00Twins/White Sox Play-In GameCaleb, to get DeWayne Wise out. It's very important to have the platoon advantage against DeWayne Wise.

Rather than Jim Thome. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-30 16:30:00Twins/White Sox Play-In GameDelmon Young caught it on the warning track after losing it in the lights, then seemed to panic that the guy on first was tagging. Then he realized it was Jim Thome, who is an honorary Molina ... (Will Carroll)
