DateQuestionAnswer
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)So what did you think of the fans' involvement in the Yankee run production last night?
(Peter Q from San Diego)
Hey, Pete. I owe you a phone call... I think until they build ballparks with the appropriate setbacks, that stuff is going to happen and I don't get too exercised about it. I've never quite understood what the appeal of catching a ball is anyway. It's... a ball. Sure, Enrique Wilson fouled it into the stands, but does that really make it that special. Are you going to tell your grandkids that you caught the ball that Ramiro Pena hit? Your grandchildren are going to be living underwater anyway, and won't have any idea what you're talking about. (Steven Goldman)
2009-08-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)When do you see Ruben Tejada making an impact in the majors and what kind of impact do you see him making?
(Carl from Buffalo, NY)
Ruben Tejada is going to be a big leaguer, but not an impact one. For me, he's kind of a future Enrique Wilson kind of player. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you had a gun to your head, would you say that Torre 1. got the Yankees and extra WS or two through cool-headedness; 2. Cost them one or two through his bullpen usage; 3. Probably had no effect. Substitute other reasons for 1 & 2 if I'm off. Thanks!
(Tony from Brooklyn, NY)
Do I have to have a gun to my head? Can I say that it was sometimes 1 and sometimes 2, depending on the year? Let us also say that in both 2001 and 2003 his decision-making was influenced by pathetic roster construction--if you look back at our last playoff roundtable, you can find Joe and I talking about this. In 2001, the bench was Enrique Wilson, Clay Bellinger, Randy Velarde. In 2003, as Joe memorably said, they had more lefties in the pen than the Marlins had lefty hitters. I don't know who gets responsibility for those calls. But in 2007, his "coolness" led him to sit on his ass while Joba was eaten by bugs, and I know very well that Casey or Billy Martin or Leo Durocher or John McGraw or Dick Williams would have been out there pulling his team off the field. I don't know if they would have gotten to the World Series, but his coolness became passivity there and justifiably cost him his job. (Steven Goldman)
