BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jay, thank you for chatting. Nomar Garciaparra had 6 great seasons and essentially nothing else in his career. Does JAWS see him as having a HOF-caliber peak? Where do you generally draw the line on high peak/short career players?
(ripfan008 from Baltimore)
I have Nomar 20th all-time among SS at 47.6/44.4/46.0 - nearly all of his value was at his peak - where the average HOF SS is at 60.6/40.3/50.5. So yes, I think you could argue that Garciaparra is Hallworthy based upon that peak, and if he were on the ballot, I would consider arguing for him.

That said, you won't get anywhere with the BBWAA making that argument, because of Garciaparra's short career. Nobody whose entire career took place in the post-1961 expansion era has been voted in with less than 2,000 hits (he has 1,747) or 8,000 PA (6,116). So he's got a real uphill battle ahead of him. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)You and I agreed on holding on to Adam Jones back in May, and it panned out. What are your expectations for Sandoval for the rest of this year? Too talented to fail?
(nschaef from NYC)
I still think Sandoval is a lot like Nomar Garciaparra, but he's been having a down year for sure. In single-season leagues I may think about replacing him, but unless his price is unbearable, I would hold onto him in keeper leagues. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Lightning round: Pablo Sandoval in 2010: about the same as 09, better, or worse?
(Gregjitsu from Rside)
Honestly, about the same. Pablo Sandoval is Nomar Garciaparra to me. The good version that hit for a high average with solid power. (Marc Normandin)
2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Joe, Thanks for the chat. Thinking about this questions today: what is the relationship between a high contact rate (90 plus) and walk rate? Is a high contact rate going to suppress walks?
(lagronem from Newark, DE)
Absolutely. A high contact rate will limit the number of deep counts. The low walk rates of Ichiro Suzuki, Nomar Garciaparra, Don Mattingly...that's partly because when they swing they square the ball up. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Huge Giants fan here, wondering what your thoughts were regarding Pablo Sandoval in terms of 1)a comparison to another player that you think he will become and 2)whether he can stick at 3rd base for the next few years?
(brianpekrul from San Francisco)
I still swear that he's like a shorter, fatter version of Nomar Garciaparra, back when Nomar could catch up to anything and was a lock to hit for a high average. He's doing pretty well at third, so as long as the big guy doesn't turn into a bigger guy, then he should be fine. (Marc Normandin)

(Trevor from Norfolk)
I'll throw my comp in to the ring, as far as performance and skills at the plate go: Nomar Garciaparra. Hit anywhere from .310 to .360, with 20-25 homers a year. (Marc Normandin)
2009-04-10 16:30:00 (link to chat)Hey CK! Just counting down hours until my flight up to Oakland for Opening Night. So far this season, A's hitters seem to really be focusing on going up the middle and to the opposite field. Is this early-season noise, or a product of new hitting coach Jim Skaalen?
(ashitaka from long beach, ca)
Hope you have a great time at the ballpark; I know it's not really the same thing now that the Coliseum's been mauled beyond recognition, but I sort of feel about the A's home park the way some Mets fans feel about Shea--sure, it's a pit, but it's *our* pit.

I don't think we can put this on Skaalen just yet; this isn't quite like Rick Burleson jumping on Mark McGwire to hit singles to right, and getting the single worst season of Mac's career for his troubles. It's important to keep in mind the talent that's on this year's roster, never mind that we don't have Emil Brown to kick around any more. Adding hitters like Orlando Cabrera and Nomar Garciaparra gives you a lineup with people who put the ball in play a lot more often than those of us who still treasure the memories of watching Olmedo Saenz or Matt Stairs or Ben Grieve (at his best) taking their cuts.
