BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-04-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will Andres Torres be back around the time his 15-day DL stint ends?
(GBSimons from Boise, ID)
From what we've heard, he could be, but it's far from assured. More likely he spends an extra week or two on the DL. (Derek Carty)
2012-03-08 15:00:00 (link to chat)Andres Torres: Legitimate CF for the Mets or a fourth outfielder? Everybody seems to off the bandwagon even though he was arguably an MVP candidate two years ago.
(Marinara Magnate from Italy)
I'm going to miss Torres a lot. His defense in center is enough for me to think that he's at least a second-division starter, particularly given the cavernous Citi Field outfield, but he's probably not the everyday answer for the Mets when they finally return to contention. (Daniel Rathman)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank em please: Brantly, Markakis, Pagan, Torres
(Ralph from Arlington)
I think you've got the order right there. Michael Brantley, Nick Markakis, Angel Pagan, Andres Torres. Brantley and Markakis are close, but I'd probably go Brantley first. (Derek Carty)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are both Rajai Davis and Andres Torres worth holding onto, with the injuries and all, will the SB and other offensive perks still get there this season?
(SnakeDoctor18 from NY)
Unless you think you can find someone who will outproduce Torres and Davis the rest of the year, why would you? Short term fixes are fine, of course, but giving those two up to find temporary replacements won't work in any league where other owners watch the waiver wire. (Marc Normandin)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chances that Andres Torres can repeat his 2010 performance?
(ted from the cubicle)
Pretty good, I think. He has hit .269/.343/.492 since returning to the major leagues in 2009, in 214 games and 740 plate appearances. Assuming everyone who comes out of nowhere for a year is going to repeat would be a problem, but I think Torres is one of the guys who can do it again. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Marc -- first time, long time, kudos, keep it up, etc. Planning ahead for my 2011 keeper draft (thanks to an awful 2010), I can keep 6 guys from my current roster. I plan on using 2 of these keeper spots for hitters (Votto & Ryan Z), & 1 for King Feilx. Out of the following pitchers, which 3 would you hold onto: Buccholz, Garza, Gallardo, Matusz, Niese? (As you might've guessed, I'm leaning towards the first 3...) Or should I throw caution to the wind and use a slot on Andres Torres?
(David R. from West Hartford, CT)
Thanks, David! The first three are probably your best choices, though not in that order. Buchholz is much closer to Matusz than people have been giving him credit for, and even with Boston's defense we'll see regression out of him next year. He could increase his strikeout rate by two per nine and drop a walk per nine for 2011 and he still wouldn't match his current ERA. I like Jon Niese a lot actually, it's a shame you have just the six keepers.

Given your pitching and the lack of hitting, you may want to package some of those hurlers together instead of just losing them and see if you can bring back a better bat. I bet a Buccholz/Niese combo would make someone cough up a hitter very fast. (Marc Normandin)
2010-06-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Trade Andres Torres for Brett Gardner? pretty similar numbers except Gardner has twice as many steals, solid move or not as good as I think?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
Torres now has about 400 PA in the last two seasons with a .282/.373/.503 line. Gardner has been getting on base a ton but even now still isn't showing any power. If you need steals, Gardner is a better bet (and I've been looking at him as a potential pickup for me). The one thing I would be wary of with Torres is that it feels like an emptier .282/.373/.503 line, if that makes sense. The rates are fantastic, but he isn't hitting a ton of doubles, isn't hitting a ton of tripes, nor a ton of homers, and isn't a frantic base-stealer. He'll help with OPS, no doubt, but might not put you over the top in a certain category. (Eric Seidman)
