DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Past Ben, want to guess what the top five names on the MLB home run leaderboard in 2018 look like? Also, congrats on the upcoming five-year anniversary of TINO. The show got much better in year three after Craig was replaced with Hank the Dog.
(Ben Carsley from The Future)
Giancarlo Stanton. Joey Gallo. Kris Bryant. Miguel Cabrera. Raul Ibanez. (Ben Carsley)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, big fan of your work. Deciding between R. Ludwick and C. Parmelee for my last cut in a dynasty points league. I am set with backups at 1b so Parmelee's eligibility there is a non-factor. I have 4 solid starting OF and two decent bench options ahead of these guys, who would be my OF7. Does Parmelee have enough upside left at this point to sacrifice Ludwick's safer playing time in 2014? I'm thinking not but I tend to lean toward younger players when possible. Thanks.
(Josh from Philly)
Hi Josh;

At this point, I think I'd have to go with Ryan Ludwick over Chris Parmelee. Parmelee is an intriguing play for power potential, but he is getting to the age where he is going to get tagged as a fourth outfield/backup first base type soon. Ludwick is older, but as you noted he should play every day barring a trade or another serious injury. You don't want to give up on young/talented guys in dynasty, but I don't quite think Parmelee fits that bill at this point. Sure, maybe he goes the route of Raul Ibanez and does some major damage in his 30s, but how likely was that career path even for Ibanez. I'd stick with Ludwick there. (Mike Gianella)
2013-04-25 12:30:00 (link to chat)Seattle is 1/2 game ahead of Houston for goodness sakes. How long do you think they will take to make some changes to their team? Zunino looks, even though he went through a rough patch, but he has looked good. He could come in and add a spark to this team. Smoak needs to go, thoughts?
(Baylor from Carrollton)
Paul Sporer and I talked about the Mariners at length on Effectively Wild today. I'm sure Zunino will be up at some point, but I think this team needs more than a spark. It needs some sort of bonfire that consumes all the bad players. (Not literally. Raul Ibanez is really nice.) (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-03-14 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who is/are the odd man/men out in the Angels' 1B/LF/DH shuffle? Trout probably starts in AAA, Abreu wants PT, but probably won't get it. Can they find someone willing to take Abreu off their hands?
(Mark68 from Mile High)
Much as I've enjoyed Abreu's career, I don't envision him being a whole lot better than the Damon/Matsui DH types who can't get jobs. The Yankees nibbled at him for a while, then decided the path of least resistance would be Raul Ibanez. I can't imagine Abreu drawing much interest a few months down the road, and I think he could get squeezed out in Anaheim as the season rolls on. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)The ESPN Player Rater weighs the contribution of each player's statistical output as the percentage of that of the entire MLB player pool. Do you think this in effect gives too much weight to stolen bases? For instance, Michael Bourn ranks 16th overall. Or are stolen bases truly that valuable?
(Andrew from Las Vegas)
While I've never actually checked the numbers, I would guess that it does. It would be much better if they used a theoretical player pool for the league depth. Since steals are more scarce than, say, home runs, my guess is that the vast majority of players who contribute steals get owned in a large percentage of leagues. While a guy like Nyjer Morgan might be owned in a lot of leagues, a guy like Miguel Olivo or Raul Ibanez whose primary contribution is home runs might not be. This means that the MLB player pool is more representative of the fantasy player pool for SB than it is for HR. The ESPN Rater would be acting as if more HRs are in play than there actually are, reducing their value and raising value of SB correspondingly. (Derek Carty)
2011-06-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Babe Ruth??? I think GC was looking for a Bautista comp more along the lines of a guy who was nothing until age 30. Raul Ibanez might be a good guy to bring up instead. He did nothing at all until he was 30.
(Geo from KC)
I read it as a question about whether anyone had been as good as Bautista at the same age, period, but you're probably right. This article might have some answers. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jon Singleton--does he have a chance to be a decent OF? Seems like if his bat turns out as projected it'll play anywhere, but is he athletic enough to play a passable LF? Seems like if Pat Burrell and Raul Ibanez could man LF in CBP, so could this guy, right?
(Chuck from Philly)
Right. Left field really isn't that hard. I mean you wouldn't want Prince Fielder out there, but there are plenty of guys who can be 40 outfielders in left. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)If the Phils can't deal Blanton, do you think there's a chance they'd move Cole Hamels instead? It's right out of Amaro's playbook - get the bird in the hand (Lee locked up long-term) instead of waiting to see if Hamels re-ups before he hits free agency. If they try to move Hamels, where does he end up? Arizona in a deal involving Justin Upton, perhaps?
(ColonelTom from Richmond, KY)
It's possible they'd move Hamels, but I can't see them putting somebody in Domonic Brown's way as being the objective. Of course, they do have just one more year to go with Raul Ibanez... (Christina Kahrl)
2010-08-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on the resurgence of Raul Ibanez? .348/.429/.539 since July 1st. Either the Phillies were really smart or really lucky in not benching/releasing him when everyone and their mother was calling for it. With Utley and Howard out, he and Werth are carrying a replacement-level lineup otherwise.
(JC from Philly)
Is that's more or less what he hit during last year's hot streak? We get way too caught up in the order of events. (Myself, I never advocated releasing him, but he *is* the team's fourth-best outfielder, defense included, and I'd advocated benching him.) (Joe Sheehan)
2010-06-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)How many more awful calls are we going to have to withstand before MLB does the right thing and institutes replay? Or, maybe I should ask, are you in favor of replay?
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
I share the same sentiment as many others -- add an umpire, have him constantly watch a video monitor, and use some type of headset system for quick and accurate results. These replays would take 7 seconds in most cases. Most of those against it envision replays taking 15 minutes, yet most of that time is due to managers arguing. I mean, how hard was it to explain to Charlie Manuel that a ball hit Raul Ibanez last night? The explanation is, it hit him, end of story. I understand protecting players and such, but most of the problems are with managers themselves and not replay. It STILL makes me angry that Galarraga didn't get a perfect game, regardless of how nice Jim Joyce might be. There is NO excuse for that. (Eric Seidman)
2010-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)True or False: Raul Ibanez will end the season with an .800+ OPS.
(stately from ATL)
False, but I could see a hot streak getting him to 790. (Steven Goldman)
2010-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much was Raul Ibanez's sports hernia responsible for his horrendous second half in '09? What do you see from him this season?
(GBSimons from After lunch)
Honestly, I have no idea how much of it was from his hernia. But I didn't (and don't) expect the first half from him again. More likely, he'll hit like Raul Ibanez is supposed to, which is unexciting but has its uses. (Marc Normandin)
2009-10-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, I assume the Yankees will start Sabathia twice on short rest in order to get him three starts; would the Yankees be wise to start Pettitte once of short rest (games 3+6) in order to get 5 lefty starts in a seven game series? Or is the platoon advantage vs. the Phillies not THAT important? Or do you think the Yankees will through in Gaudin and go with a 4 man rotation?
(Nick Stone from New York, NY)
Hey, Nick! I spent a good deal of time trying to figure out the two teams' rotation options on a game-by-game basis. Cutting and pasting from the preview, here's what I came up with:

Game 1: Sabathia (7) v. Lee (9)
Game 2: Burnett (6) v. Martinez (12)
Game 3: Pettitte (5) v. Hamels (9)
Game 4: Sabathia (3) or Gaudin (11) vs. Lee (3), Happ (10), or Blanton (12)
Game 5: Burnett (3), Sabathia (4, if Gaudin Game 4), or Gaudin (12) vs. Happ, Blanton or Lee (4)
Game 6: Pettitte (3) or Burnett (5, if Sabathia Game 4 and Gaudin Game 5) vs. Martinez (5), Hamels (3), Happ or Blanton
Game 7: Sabathia (3, if pitched Game 4) or Pettitte (4, if Sabathia Game 4) vs. Lee (3, if pitched Game 4) or Hamels (4)

While the Phillies hit lefties about as well as righties in the regular season, they haven't been all that successful doing so in the postseason, batting at a .194/.322/.444 clip, with a few big hits — Ryan Howard's two-run double off Clayton Kershaw, his homer off Randy Wolf, and Raul Ibanez's homer off George Sherrill - offsetting their woes. My read on Sabathia and Pettitte is that they're better than the Dodger southpaw starters at this point in time, so yes, I do think it makes sense to throw more lefties at them, particularly given that Gaudin doesn't match up well with them at all. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-10-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance I can unload Raul Ibanez on someone this winter and sign Holliday? Who should I call?
(R. Amaro from Philly)
Brian Sabean has to be the first call. And the second. Maybe the Braves. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, can you offer your take on two NL outfielders, Raul Ibanez and Garrett Jones? Both had surprising performances this year. Ibanez has been AWFUL in the second half. Maybe he's injured? Garrett Jones just hasn't let up. When the clock strikes 12, will he be a pumpkin again? Or is he here to stay (sort of a Ryan Ludwick type late-bloomer)? Thanks!
(Sharky from The Deep End)
Re: Ibanez, I'm reminded of one old Strat opponent who always liked to mildly observe, "it all evens out in the end." I never really bought into that (Willingham's season is going to look insanely great relative to the rest of his career no matter what, for example), but it certainly seems that somebody's applied a leveller of some sort. Jones might be a latter-day Paul Sorrento of sorts, in that he's always had employable power, and simply needed the opportunity; Jones has helped himself by being employable enough in an outfield corner, but first base is really the position he'll wind up at, sort of the same way Sorrento had to diversify. That's the nature of first base, if you're not someone like Pujols (superstar moving from another position) or Prince Fielder (drafter to be a superstar), you need to make a great impression with what opportunities you do get. Witness what's happened to Daric Barton, or how long it took Carlos Pena to finally stick; if you blow an opportunity, competition for playing time at first base is *fierce*. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a guy who has followed him for years, how did Ben Zobrist suddenly turn from minor league .300 hitter with very little power into a guy with 13 home runs so far? Change in approach, natural progression, or perhaps something more nefarious? Perhaps the question I'm really asking, is: Is accusing someone of performance enhancing drugs ever a reasonable assumption?
(maybeofftopic365 from teaneck, nj)
DRaysBay did a big thing with his hitting coach. On the accusation, yes, that would be wrong. No one should ever say "this guy's doing steroids" without evidence. Now, could you wonder it? Absolutely. As the Raul Ibanez brouhaha has shown, some in the media didn't learn from the late 90's when we didn't ask questions. Ask the question, prove your case, let the athlete make his (and let me make a case for the Athlete's Passport here ...) Baseball fans are going to wonder. That's a price for lost trust, in the same way that a cuckolded spouse is going to wonder if his wife is really going to the store. It's not right, it's not comfortable, but it's how things work. (Will Carroll)
2009-06-03 15:00:00 (link to chat)So, um, what's up with Raul Ibanez? My Phillie Fan friends can't stop singing his praises and it kinda annoys me.
(jschmeagol from hyattsville, md)
Another perfect storm. He moved from a pitcher's park in the middle of a craptastic offense to a bandbox in a juggernaut in a year where homers are spiking. His HR/FB rate has shot from 10.7% to 27.5% (Fangraphs data), which is comical but also probably unsustainable.

He's on his way to a career year at 37, but I'm going to wager that the remainder of his backloaded contract ($23 million in 2009-2010) doesn't turn out as well as this year does. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-12-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance The Most Consistent Hitter in Baseball History© (A. Dunn) lands anywhere besides Washington? The Cubs are talking about 37 year old Raul Ibanez because they want to balance their lineup... but no Dunn?
(Justin Zeth from PA)
Fun perception/reality thing there. Ibanez is an awful left fielder, but because he looks more athletic than Dunn, he's not seen as such. (Joe Sheehan)
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)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)The Chicago papers (especially the Tribune) make it seem as if the Cubs aren't quite done dealing, but haven't been very specific. Have you heard any names connected with the Cubs in the last few days?
(Dizzle from Portland)
I've heard Raul Ibanez and that just makes no sense to me. (John Perrotto)
2008-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Raul Ibanez is green? His age has made him no longer an adequate outfielder, and somehow he's not an injury risk despite being asked to play outfield everyday? Not even his knees? Come on, help me out, here.
(Evan from Vancouver, BC)
I know. Every year, there's a guy who's green, or red, and I go "huh?" Ibanez is one of them and I'll explain more when the Mariners THR comes out.

And as I pointed out in my Unfiltered today, the system's not perfect. (Will Carroll)
