BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)How much of pitching is genetics vs hard work and good training? If the top pitching coaches from around the league coached a bunch of determined but otherwise very average joes, how many of them would make the majors?
(Rags from Brooklyn)
Genetics certainly matter, but to be elite requires tons of hard work and appropriate training. The best pitchers of all time were obsessive about improvement through hard work and proper training, from Nolan Ryan to Roger Clemens and Randy Johnson.

The second question is impossible to answer without context. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-10-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)What would an 8 eephus pitch look like? More seriously, does it make sense for OFP to be an average of the pitch grades when some pitches will be much more important to a pitcher's success than others?
(justarobert from Santa Clara)
You bring up an excellent point, justarobert. I believe that OFP goes much deeper than an average of the pitch grades, and the way that the elements of a pitcher's repertoire complements the rest of the arsenal is a critical consideration. It is also essential to consider that a pitcher's stuff changes over time, both in terms of quality and variation, yet it is very difficult to capture this when doing an OFP grade. Roger Clemens is a great example - he was a fastball-curveball guy who threw over the top in his 20's, but he morphed into a FB-splitter guy with excellent balance and posture later in his career. Both the curve and the splitter deserved plus-plus grades, and the fastball was always elite, but few would have predicted that he would make such a major alteration to his pitch selection.

On the jukebox: Lagwagon, "Dis' Chords" (Doug Thorburn)
2012-11-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Dan! Mark Buehrle's comments have cast a light on the practice of unwritten agreements between players and teams. My sense is that, unlike in Buehrle's case, these are fairly common and generally are followed by both sides (Roger Clemens' handshake extension with the Yankees comes to mind). Is that right and, if so, can you comment on what you would view as legitimate (and illegitimate) reasons for making such agreements?
(edwardarthur from Champaign-Urbana, Illinois)
Edwardarthur, good question. First off, I have Known Mark since he was drafted by the White Sox, as we were both in that organization together at the time. He is an absolute winner, one of the best teammates I have ever been around. When negotiating a contract, a lot of stuff is said, all of it on the record between the two parties. There are contract clauses that can be included if you feel strongly about an item. Every club has its own concepts about they will and will. It do, but every player can also talk to every team. Ultimately, everybody has to decide what is the best overall deal. I was taught that anything you say you'll do, you better be really sure that you back it up. Tough situation for both sides there. (Dan Evans)
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, I'm not sure if you noticed but the Hall of Fame ballot this year includes names such as Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Roger Clemens, and Mark McGwire. We hear a lot about should they be in the hall of fame or not, what do you think the writers will do?
(Steve G. from Athens, OH)
They're going to vote Bonds and Clemens in eventually, I think--it's much harder to justify an argument that they wouldn't have been Hall of Famers without steroids than it is for Sosa and McGwire, and the Hall is going to have to have the best players ever in it if it wants people to pay to get in. But as that guy in Gladiator says, "Not yet...not yet." (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-08-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts on the Roger Clemens, uh, return...story...stunt...fiasco...thing?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Again, I wrote about Clemens today at BP.com. It was at the top of the page, with Clemens' picture setting up the story. I'm starting to get concerned about the people in this chat. (Jason Parks)
2012-06-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are the best pitcher and non-pitcher not currently in the Hall of Fame? And if you could kick out one player, who would it be?
(oira79 from san francisco)
As of the 2013 ballot, which will be released this fall, the answers are America's most wanted couple, Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds. They'll retain those titles until the voters hold their noses and put them in the Hall, which I don't think will happen this year but will happen within three or four years. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Good chat. Over the last 15 - 20 years, who are some of your favorite players to go to the ballpark and see play and why?
(Jerome from T Hills)
Some of them are obvious - warts and all, I'm thrilled that I've gotten to see Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez as often as I have over the years - both have provided some incredible moments. Mariano Rivera, of course. I'm lucky to have seen Tim Raines and Rickey Henderson relatively late in their careers. Ken Griffey Jr., Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner and Randy Johnson were pretty special because the Mariners were a favorite before I came to New York, and a common point of reference for me and my brother. Manny Ramirez, when he was still an Indian, was a lot of fun. Jim Thome was a beast who seemed to homer every time he came to town.

Going further back, I'm thrilled I got to see Fernando Valenzuela pitch in person, even if it was only spring training. Likewise for seeing Reggie Jackson in spring training - both were huge parts of my childhood and adolesence. My first regular season major league game was Roger Clemens vs. Nolan Ryan in 1989 (read about it in today's column). That was incredibly special in retrospect because Ryan always meant a great deal to me.

I'm sure I've forgotten somebody, but that's a good start. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)So how do you feel about Roger Clemens claiming to be a Texan, yet he was born in Ohio??? Or better yet, St. Louis claims David Freese as a native son, yet he's from Texas...
(Quentin from Chicago)
Clemens has put in the wrench work necessary to earn my respect on the Texas front. That said, he wasn't born on Texas soil, so I have to judge him accordingly. (Jason Parks)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these players in their feasibility to enter the MLB Hall of Fame someday: 1. Shoeless Joe Jackson 2. Pete Rose 3. Mark McGwire 4. Barry Bonds 5. Roger Clemens 6. Sammy Sosa 7. Alex Rodriguez
(UCBravesKing from Covington, KY)
I think A-Rod before any of the rest, because his usage will be seen as a dalliance and the bulk of his career is so impressive. The same, to a lesser extent, can be said of Clemens and Bonds, but the weight of his usage is so much heavier with the ongoing lawsuits, the Congressional testimony, etc. ALL the steroids candidates will benefit from some moment TBD when we have a better understanding of the impact of steroids on production, because just about everything you see is supposition. (Steven Goldman)
2010-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jay, any thoughts on the wisdom/benefit of firing a hitting coach, specifically Milt Thompson? I know the bats have been off pace this year in Philly, but the offense had a nice track record prior to this year.
(bflaff1 from Phila., PA)
As Matt Swartz said on Twitter last night, it's very difficult for an outsider to have any feel for whether such a move is merited. Not only is it difficult to isolate performance but it's also impossible to quantify the interpersonal issues that come into play.

I beat the drum for the firing of Yankee pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre for years, but when I actually examined the numbers, found that the entirety of the underperformances on his watch boiled down to the late-period declines of Roger Clemens and Randy Johnson (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=4552).

The bottom line is that most of the time such firings boil down to interpersonal relationships or the need to satisfy bloodlust via the ritual sacrifice of the coach overseeing the underperforming unit - pitching coach, hitting coach, third base coach, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator - it crosses sports. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat. Do you think Erik Bedard will make a close to full recovery and be effective for a few more years? Any other pitchers who have made it back from a torn labrum in their pitching shoulder?
(Sumi from Monterey Park)
Very few and most are extreme examples like Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling. I don't have a lot of hope for a Bedard return, but if I was his agent, I'd get him to Dave Duncan no matter what. (Will Carroll)
2009-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Good afternoon Jay ... thanks for the chat. Has the cloud of PEDs tarnished or thrown into the question the relevance of election to the HOF? (and yes, I know the exclusion of African-Americans prior to 1947 tarnished the HOF already) Jeter is a HOFer, yes? A-Rod, in the wake of his "confession"? Damon?
(dianagramr from Cubehenge)
Hi Diana. I think the question of PEDs and the Hall of Fame is an open one that will take at least a decade to tell us anything even remotely conclusive. As hard as it may be to envision the players outed as steroid users via one means or another actually getting in, I have a much harder time envisioning the Hall's relevance without guys like Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez.

As for Jeter, he's a lock; this year puts him over the line as far as JAWS is concerned, and he's got the kind of resume writers will love. Damon's going to have to get somewhere on his push for 3,000 hits to have much traction; he's got just two All-Star appearances and scores well below average on the Hall of Fame Monitor and HOF Standards metrics. A-Rod will get there eventually, I think, particularly if he keeps to this new STFU PR strategy. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)So after the hubbub about bringing David Price up too late, does it look like perhaps the Rays brought him up a bit too soon?
(Tim from Tampa)
No, not really. I think we've forgotten that there can be a transitional period for minors players coming to the majors, regardless of how impressive they are. You wouldn't have forecast Roger Clemens for 19 Cy Youngs off of 1984, Carl Hubbell was bounced out of Detroit before clicking with the Giants, the Braves sent Warren Spahn back to the minors after his first audition, and Jim Palmer didn't post an above-average ERA+ until year three. Price's minors numbers are what they are. Now he just has to evolve one more time. It should happen, but perhaps not instantly. This same impatience is something I see daily with the Yankees and Joba, Hughes, et al. (Steven Goldman)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Will, I missed participating in your last chat, but I had a Tim Lincecum comment (pitching mechanics-related, not that other stuff). You had mentioned his back arch--I never noticed it, but could it be used to generate more velocity? To draw a cross-sport analogy, most top tennis players use a good deal of back arch to help generate velocity on their serves (McEnroe was an extreme example of this). Could pitchers make use of similar biomechanics?
(Dr. Wayne Pitcher from Castro Valley, CA)
They could and you're right, there are parallels between the tennis serve and the pitching motion. I tried a couple years ago to get Andy Roddick to throw a baseball, but his agent threatened my life. I'd bet he could get in the 90s. Heck, maybe IMG should take a couple of the second tier players at Bollietieri and move them over to the Baseball Academy! On Lincecum, yeah, maybe, but I don't see the same 'whip', the kind Roger Clemens had, tho it was less apparent because of their physiques. You'd really have to see him in mo-cap to really know. (Will Carroll)
2008-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sorry about that - I meant with "tweaks" i.e. a new pitch, different delivery, etc. I'd figure that a 27 year old like Rasner would have tried most things by now and will have limited success as a results of just throwing a cutter.
(Tony from Brooklyn, NY)
I don't have any data, but at least in the short term it can work. I guess Roger Clemens picking up the splitter has to be the best example. (Will Carroll)
2008-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)I think it's unfair to label Randy Johnson a "freak show". Roger Clemens had a freakishly powerful and durable arm; Greg Maddux had a freakish ability to locate a pitch. To be that good one has to have some "freak" in their DNA.
(havybeaks from Michigan)
That wasn't meant to be derogatory at all. Most major leaguers are freak shows in that their skill sets are so incredibly rare that the average major leaguer is worth a couple million dollars a year, and the best of them are worth upwards of $20 million at their peak.

At those prices, i wish I could get my freak on.

Ok folks, I'm going to take one more question.... (Jay Jaffe)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)There was just a report that the Clemens case could last several years. I hate Clemens... well I dislike him, I think he's pompous and guilty and would like to never see him pitch again, but there's no way his case is worth the time. I don't think he even deserves a jail sentence, though it would make me chuckle. I'm sure there's something these guys could be doing that's more worthwhile. If I could fire the government, I would.

Have you ever met Roger Clemens? Remember the filter--on and off of the field--that you're seeing most of his actions through, and remember that journalism is perhaps a fundamentally broken medium when it comes to objectivity.

Me, I think it's a lot of wheel-spinning, but I don't think there's any dudgeon to embark upon, high or low. We don't know if it helped his performance on the field, we don't know the guy, and we don't know the truth. I honestly don't know why people get worked up about this stuff; the "what about the children?" narrative is a crock until, as several of my colleagues have noted, Congress and perhaps MLB spend some better-spent time on other dangerous substances.

Honest question, but how do we quantify our generation? Does this current generation include Greg Maddux, Pedro Martinez, and Roger Clemens?

Halladay is a good one, but he's definitely in their rear-view mirrors. (Brandon Warne)

And I'm going to tell my son that I saw Bobby Meacham.

Also, that no matter how many people tell him he was named after Roger Clemens, I had bigger game in mind. (Steven Goldman)
