DateQuestionAnswer
2012-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Looking through the FA class of RP and SP, who are this year's Fernando Rodney, Hiroki Kuroda and Wei-Yun Chen?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Projecting relievers is a fool's errand, given the sample sizes involved and the variation in reliever usage from year to year. But I'm a fool, so allow me to take a stab at it. A few names that stand out as potential bargains are Jason Grilli, Joel Peralta, and Octavio Dotel - Dotel might be the Julio Franco of this generations relief pitchers.

On the jukebox: Guns N' Roses, "My Michelle" (Doug Thorburn)
2010-03-23 16:30:00 (link to chat)Hi Matt What are the chances of Matt Capps and Octavio Dotel remaining as closers all year and how do you think they will do? Thanks
(Ed from Cranford, N.J.)
I never can guess when people are going to start and stop being closers. Both seem reasonably likely to keep their jobs, I guess? I wonder why Pittsburgh wouldn't want to keep Matt Capps under team control. That could be a bad sign. (Matt Swartz)
2009-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)In 3.3 innings, Octavio Dotel has 9 strikeouts and a pop-up. That 24.3 K/9 looks pretty cool.
(ashitaka from long beach, ca)
April is the best sometimes. (Marc Normandin)

PITCHf/x Pitcher Profile

A Collaboration between BrooksBaseball.net and Baseball Prospectus - Pitch classifications provided by Pitch Info LLC

In 2013, he relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (90mph), also mixing in a Slider (81mph) and Curve (77mph).
