BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Torii Hunter, Denard Span, Ben Revere, Aaron Hicks, Byron Buxton, do the Twins have a fetish for this type of player or what?
(Ace from PA)
Athletic CFs? Who wouldn't? Though, the only real common link between these three is position, ethnicity, and a tie to Minnesota. Otherwise, they're vastly different skill-sets. (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)This season has been a tale of two Tigers teams: the one with the dominant rotation and dynamic lineup that got off to a 27-12 start and the mediocre one we've seen the last two weeks. What should we expect from here on out?
(mofab from Bellingham WA)
Something in between. By OPS+ the Tigers have three above average hitters on their team (Kinsler, Cabrera, and Victor Martinez). The good news is they can likely upgrade the bullpen with the addition of most relievers available at or near the deadline so improvement there is possible. The lineup might be a bit better than this, but it might not. Austin Jackson can improve, and I guess Torii Hunter could as well though the age is what the age is. In the end though this team needs their rotation to push them to the post season. I'm not optimistic about them in two years, but this season they should make the playoffs. (Matthew Kory)
2013-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Also regarding Los Anaheim, is it fair to expect their offense to improve with Hamilton in RF, even if Trout remains superheroic? I don't think people realize how good Torii Hunter was last year because, y'know, he's old.
(Chester Trout from Dallas)
Hamilton may step back and likely will due to the park if nothing else. I think the Angels come down to pitching. Beyond the mid to back end of their rotation they're pretty stacked, even if you don't love the Hamilton contract. (Matthew Kory)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)What players to you see suffering a big regression. What players do you think surprise this year?
(Jason from Philadelphia )
Torii Hunter seems like an obvious regression candidate. The BABIP was extreme and the power and speed are dwindling as he moves into his later 30s. Chris Davis is kind of a one-trick pony and if the power slips even a little his value takes a serious hit. I don't see another 30+ bombs for Davis this year. As far as surprises go, I think Ike Davis shakes off the rust of his Valley Fever and becomes a serious 40 home run threat. Tyler Colvin is a player I really like to find a way into playing time and hit 20 home runs (assuming, of course, he gets to play). (Mike Gianella)
2012-12-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Good afternoon Russell. What kind of season do you anticipate from Torii Hunter in 2013? Will we see a sharp decline from last year?
(Wayner from Big Town)
I guess this would be the opposite of #wish? Hunter pretty much is what he is, an older player who's going to put up 2-3 wins. Not bad. (Russell Carleton)
2012-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it crazy to call Mike Trout, Rickey Henderson Jr. like Torii Hunter is.
(Mike from Utica, NY)
It's crazy to need to call Mike Trout anything other than Mike Trout. His skill-set is sexy enough to avoid the need to compare him to others, don't you think? (Jason Parks)
2011-06-29 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite players to deal with, both past or present?
(Gerald from Savannah)
Geez. That's a tough one because there are so many good guys I have dealt with in 24 years of covering baseball. I hate to leave people out but some of my favorites would have to include Sean Casey, John Burkett, Jay Bell, Craig Wilson, Jason Schmidt, Michael Barrett from the past. From the present: Jason Bay, Cole Hamels, Carlos Pena, Scott Rolen, Brandon Phillips, Nyjer Morgan, Neil Walker, Joel Hanrahan, Adam Jones, Max Scherzer, Don Kelly, Chris Perez, Adam Dunn, Matt Capps, Torii Hunter, Kurt Suzuki, Ian Kinsler. (John Perrotto)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have a deep team, so my last cut in my keeper will stink, suck, and hurt. In a deep keeper league, put Johan (he's my 7th best SP considering the injury), Roy Oswalt (was 7th 'til Johan got hury), Torii (my backup CF behind Rasmus), or Beckham (I also own Weeks) back in the pool? Please don't say Beckham. I love him and remember the hype of the spring ever so wistfully.
(Will from Mactaquac)
I'm keeping Beckham in one of my leagues with a deep roster, so I definitely won't be saying him. Johan Santana or Torii Hunter is probably the way to go. Given Santana's injury history I might choose him, just because he'll be the easiest to reacquire next season. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Skip Schumaker went OF to 2B. Soriano went the opposite way. Ty Wigginton plays every position on the diamond. In general, what is the difference in defensive performance between position players? Would a good defensive 1B like Derek Lee be the worst 3B/2B/SS in the league? Would Torii Hunter win Gold Gloves (and merit them) in his sleep at 1B?
(GM Wannabe from The Front Office)
Not necessarily, because the positions require different skills. Hunter was so valuable because of his range and speed. That doesn't matter at 1B, so while he might be able to field grounders and make Ike Davis catches (the new term for catches where you look silly falling over a dugout rail) it's not like his OF prowess helps him at all. Similarly, Derrek Lee might be agile around the 1B bag, and good at scooping, but can you really see him making plays in the hole between SS and 3B? Certain players excel at certain positions because of what makes them valuable, which would be mitigated by certain defensive switches. Soriano was fast and had a good arm, so going from 2B to LF wasn't a stretch. (Eric Seidman)
2010-05-11 16:30:00 (link to chat)Thinking about Adam Jones, is there any research that supports/refutes the idea of sending a guy to the minors to work out of a deep slump? On the surface it seems to have worked for Jones comp Torii Hunter in 2000.
(Drungo from SoMd)
I'm not sure if research can support or refute this on the aggregate, but it must be a case by case basis kind of thing. For Jones, he's swinging at all types of pitches out of the zone-- 41%. For comparison, the league average is around 25% and Jeff Francoeur is at 43%. So, Jones needs to work on pitch recognition because he's not swinging that much overall. I don't know if demoting him to recognize inferior pitches builds him up to recognizing MLB quality pitches. (Matt Swartz)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Fair to say that $$$ people in the Fox and ESPN offices are hoping for a Dodger-Yankees World Series? What is CK hoping for?
(strupp from Madison)
The exact opposite, not just because I'm contrarian, but because I'd really like to see what the Phillies' wave of southpaws do against an Angels lineup that boasts a few lefty-killers past (Vladi) or present (Juan Rivera, Torii Hunter). Add in Scioscia vs. Manuel, and I think it would be a much more interesting series to watch than the interminable "What's Joe Torre thinking, is he pondering his past in pinstripes, blahblahblah." (Christina Kahrl)
2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Torii Hunter's career? It seems he's played much better the last couple years than anyone expected - how do you see him going forward?
(dtwhite from Toronto)
I believe the idea is that players with a broad base of skills age better than those who have one skill above others. Hunter has generally done everything but walk, and he even does that well enough sometimes. He's hit for a better average the last couple of years. I'll say that he's outperformed my expectations, but the the back end of the contract still carries some risk. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please explain why the LA Angels are one of the most successful teams in baseball. They sure don't seem to give a damn about sabermetrics...
(akachazz from DC)
You don't have to give a damn about sabermetrics to be successful. The Angels clearly have a solid scouting department, and just because the numbers lie about fewer performance aspects, scouting is still a very real and important part of the evaluation game. They have also rectified mistakes, IE, signing Torii Hunter a year after signing Gary Matthews Jr. I find them fascinating - not one player really stands out (aside from Morales this year) but they consistently top the division. (Eric Seidman)
2008-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many years/dollars do you think Pat Burrell will sign for? And will he re-sign with the Phillies?
(phils fan from NYC)
Really good question. He's not Torii Hunter, but could you make a 5/90 argument for him? I think he's the kind of player that might end up in Cincy. (Will Carroll)
2008-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)For all the talk of how fundamental the Angels are, they sure didn't look it, what's up with that label?
(Mike from The Bronx)
It's a label. To borrow a Sheehan-ism, the Angels usually win when they hit .280, and lose when they hit .260, and they can sneak them out on occasion because of the little things they do, but in this series, they were getting hits from the middle of their lineup and failing to drive anyone in, and they couldn't seem to do the little things right. Torii Hunter getting tossed out on a stupid extension of a single, everyone failing to get to that dinky popup that eventually turned into multiple runs for the Sox...it just wasn't a pretty series for the Angels, and the Sox didn't win because they were the better team, they won because they managed to avoid screwing up as many times as the Angels did. (Marc Normandin)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi, Christina, love your writing... the queen of transaction analysis! Big question for you: Are the Angels due for a whopping regression next year? I'm mostly worried about their 2007 Diamondbacks-like pythagorean win-loss record. Their outfield in particular looks like it'll be a shambles. They'll be minus Juan Rivera (unless they make a serious effort to re-sign him), Vlad will undoubtedly be taken up on his team option, Garret Anderson will be gone, but Torii Hunter will be a year older (and he's already showing signs of decline), and the team will be carrying that godawful Gary Matthews, Jr. contract (barring a DFA). Plus, the bullpen will almost certainly be without K-Rod, and that leads to questions about the team's ability to shut down the opposition late in games with the implied roster reshuffling. Like the 2008 Snakes, it seems they could very quickly become a .500 (or worse) team in a hurry. Thoughts?
(scareduck from Somewhere west of Angel Stadium)
I think it makes for a very interesting question, because the factors you mention could lead to an expectation that it might take fewer than 90 wins to take next year's division crown, at which point you can put Oakland and Texas into the picture if they play for the near-term. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Here's a fantasy question for you if you're interested. I'd much appreciate it. Someone in my league just traded Ryan Howard, Justin Verlander, Josh Beckett, Curtis Granderson and Manny Ramirez for Cliff Lee, Ervin Santana, Carlos Gomez, Torii Hunter, Erik Bedard and Garrett Atkins. A lot of people are screaming veto, and I have to agree. The trade doesn't have any 'needs-based' or 'long-term' mitigating factors, either. As an important aside, the team getting the first set of players is in third while the other guy is near the bottom. Would you exercise a veto on this deal? Thanks!
(havens from bristol, CT)
Are we assuming good faith in this deal? Often a league has someone in it who is the Randy Smith of fantasy GMs and just gets suckered by everybody. I think that guy is fair game -- if he wears diapers, he shouldn't have been allowed in the league in the first place. I'm not for exercising the veto except in really apparent cases of dumping... You know, there was a parallel case in actual baseball, where for awhile Bowie Kuhn was negating trades just because he didn't like the players involved. He was actually sitting there and passing judgment on what the GMs were doing. Imagine if Bud Selig came in and said "Mets, you're overpaying for Johan Santana. No deal." That kind of thing was happening, and the more obvious opposite case as well, where he would have said, "Twins, Carlos Gomez isn't good enough. You need to hold out for a better position player or no deal." Like much of Kuhn's reign it was pathetic and unintentionally comical. (Steven Goldman)
2008-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Gomez's May #'s .318 .375 .545 a career month or a real trend into a really good player. What do you think Gomez's upside is?
(Mike from Minn)
What he's done so far at age 22 is pretty impressive. Let's see what the man himself has to say:

"Now I'm a leadoff hitter, but I'm 22. When I get to be 25, my body will be bigger and I'll be hitting home runs. I can be like an Andruw Jones or a Torii Hunter and hit third in a lineup. I don't think I'll be a leadoff hitter forever, no way."

You gotta love that confidence! (Caleb Peiffer)
2008-03-18 17:00:00 (link to chat)Jim, how much will the Twins lose (offensively and defensively) with Delmon Young in CF instead of Torii Hunter thsi year?
(Brandon from College Station, TX)
I'm afraid this is going to be the last question. I have to get to the gym and stand around looking like a give a damn about my health.

There will be some dropoff, but not as much as you would expect. I won't say this is Young's breakout season, but he's going to be vastly improved. I think his WARP3 will climb to the 5.0 range while Hunter was in the mid-7.0s last year. The Twins could have done a lot worse! (Jim Baker)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Love your column. Could you give me an opinion on how you think Kenny Williams has done as the White Sox GM this past offseason, as well as on a whole for his tenure? And how exactly do you think the somewhat unique status in Chicago's market the Sox have impacts his approach? Since the WS victory, attendance has been markedly different to the point where pre-strike levels have finally been attained. Do they finally have a reliable fan base or will they be desperate for fans once again if they see another poor performance from the club?
(colintj from Chicago)
Thanks colintj, I appreciate the compliment. Overall, I think Kenny Williams has had a decent blend of luck and daring, and perhaps more bad moves than good. Consider the Swisher move--it's a better choice than giving Torii Hunter or Aaron Rowand the money they would have cost. That wasn't part of any master design, but it's going to work out really very nicely for the Sox. While he says some things that are easy to lampoon, and nobody's calling him the best GM, he's also not the worst GM, not by any stretch. (Christina Kahrl)

2009-10-16 13:00:00NLCS Game Two/ALCS Game OneLove how McCarver saw the replay, which showed the ball in Teixeira's glove and sticks with his opinion despite evidence. And again, with a better angle and closeups! And then he thinks Torii Hunter had a better angle, one the ump thinks should carry any weight. Just a ridiculous sequence.

Hunter was out on a great play by Sabathia and Teixeira.

I also liked that Mike Scioscia pushed Laz Diaz, knowing he wouldn't get run. (Will Carroll)
