BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you also getting a "David Wells, Game 4 2002 ALDS" vibe about CC today?
(DrManhattan from NYC)
Now that you mention it... (Steven Goldman)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff Fesaro (Alou's '93 Expos) and David Wells (Gaston's '90 Blue Jays) had successful conversions to starter, but that strategy didn't catch on then.
(hotstatrat from Toronto)
Sure, but that was also when the usage-pattern perversions of the La Russian over-scripted bullpen were setting their tendrils into the industry. And remember, Wells didn't really seem to stick and get taken seriously as a quality starter until he went to Detroit. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you're Joe Girardi, how do you order the Yanks' rotation in the playoffs?
(Chris from Missouri)
Sabathia, Hughes, er, Pettitte, um...can David Wells get out of his contract with TBS? Is Orlando Hernandez available? He pitched at Double-A this year! This could get ugly. (Ben Lindbergh)
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, with Brad Pitt signed on to play Billy Bean in the movie version of "Moneyball", does that mean he won't be available to play you in the off-Broadway version of "BP"? Is the fallback Gilbert Gottfried??
(Tim from DC)
I love that casting. I presume this means I have a shot to play Tim Hudson. What's Billy, eight inches taller than Pitt?

Wrong Billy Bean(e), by the way.

I'm pretty sure Paul Giamatti or Jason Alexander plays me in the movie. Carrot Top goes all Brando to play Young Gary, David Wells makes his theatrical debut as Will, and Cate Blanchett plays Christina. I'll stop there. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)I read a Buster Olney article today saying that Andruw Jones is a borderline HOF candidate, which I think is a defensible position. I was just curious about your opinion on this - what the heck happened to the guy?
(Ameer from Bloomington, IN)
Some guys just fall off the cliff. Conditioning? Something off-field? Some have suggested PEDs, but I've seen no evidence for that. There are so many factors we don't know about people. David Wells once pitched well and when asked why, he said "I don't know. Had a really good cheeseburger for lunch." There's a lot of cheeseburgers out there, things we don't know -- relationship? hotel bed? new child who doesn't sleep through the night? (Will Carroll)
2008-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the CouldaWouldaShoulda HOF, David Wells needs to be in the discussion, partially because of his own poor conditioning, but partially because he stupidly wasn't given a full-time spot in a rotation until he was 30 years old. I know sabermatricians devalue wins, but even given THAT, he still went 239-157 for his career. It's not hard to argue that with better managing and fewer cheeseburgers, he would have had a better career than Mike Mussina.
(Razz from New York, NY)
Regarding his conditioning, it certainly hasn't been much of a detriment - the guy's stellar K/BB ratios testify to his ability to repeat his motion despite his ever-increasing girth, at least up to his age 42 season. I see no reason to make allowances one way or the other for his conditioning when considering his Hall of Fame case except to marvel at what he did accomplish.

You're on more solid ground regarding his use pattern, though it's also worth noting he had TJ surgery in 1985 and shoulder surgery in '86), so his durability wasn't exactly a known commodity early in his career. But he still can't come close to touching the Moose, value-wise, because of his put-it-in-play style of pitching versus Mussina's high strikeout rates. Mussina has about a 30-WARP edge because of that. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-05-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bartolo Colon. Unlikely to stay healthy? Back and a bad man? Good for a dozen or so above average starts? What's your expectation?
(Nater1177 from Philly)
I'm intentionally keeping my expectations so low you need a shovel to find them, solely to avoid disappointment. He doesn't fit the fat man role the same way Rich Garces and David Wells used to. I need to see more fun out of my fat pitchers. (Marc Normandin)
2008-03-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Mike Mussina saying that he has never really worked out in the offseason and that this year he really did for the first time? What are the chances that since he's such a smart player, and his body may be in better shape than it was over the last few seasons, that he can be an effective starter?
(Charlie from Washington, DC)
I think there's a better chance than if we were talking about David Wells or someone like that, but Mussina's velocity has dropped off so severely that unless he really has something new and unexpected to show the batters, I worry that all his intelligence and exercise may come to naught. I'm open to being proved wrong, natch. Heck, I'd like to be proved wrong. (Steven Goldman)
