BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-09-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)What is keeping Trevor Cahill from being Brandon Webb ?
(jkase28 from Phoenix)
In a good sense or a bad sense? If you mean the Webb from 2007-08, the difference is mostly stuff, as Webb's sinker was one of the best that I have seen over the last 6 years. There was so much late movement that Webb could throw the Sink more than 70% of the time, with batters knowing it was on its way, and they still couldn't square up the pitch (I know, you can't "square up" round objects). Cahill's sinker is a bit more hittable, and he does not get the same extreme downhill plane that Webb did, as B-Webb had a naturally-elevated angle of shoulder abduction. That elevated angle is also a precursor to shoulder injury, though, so Cahill could very well be thankful in the long run.

On the jukebox: Soundgarden, "Rusty Cage" (Doug Thorburn)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Derek. Do you think Mike Leake is worth trading a solid pitching prospect like Christian Friedrich for in a dynasty league? (The only pitching categories are IP and runs allowed.) How do you think Leake will fare the next few years?
(DS from LA)
It depends a bit on the specifics of your league and how keeping players works. Also, how risk-averse you are. In a vacuum, I'm probably doing that deal. I like Leake a lot, even if he'll likely never be a true ace. Still, I really like his stuff and what he brings to the table. He's a guy who will strikeout an above average number of batters with good control and lots of groundballs. Think maybe a Brandon Webb (in terms of final numbers, not necessarily stuff) with fewer groundballs, so maybe a mid-3.00s ERA instead of a low-3.00s ERA. That's valuable, and probably something I would trade a guy like Friedrich for. He's far from a sure thing. (Derek Carty)
2011-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any single reason why Kyle Gibson is striking out a batter an inning in AAA when he had trouble missing bats at that rate last year? Is it odd that he's putting up better stats than Webb was at this point in his respective career?
(richardkr34 from Saint Paul, MN)
He's showing even better command and control, which is helping. That said, he's not the next Brandon Webb, and he's not going to win Cy Young awards. I like him, but as a No. 3 starter. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has any team in the AL W improved this offseason besides the A's? Think they could win the AL West next year? They have to make up some games on Texas, but they've added the guys to do it. The Angels have been snoring, the Mariners shouldn't be as terrible as they were, but there's still not much there. If the A's win the AL W, does that help or hinter their chances to get out of the hellhole that is Oakland Coliseum?
(Emily from SF)
I think the Rangers improved. They lost half-a-season of Lee, but Brandon Webb was a good bet as long as his arm is healthy, and the difference between Adrian Beltre and Michael Young is enormous thanks to the defensive difference between the two. The A's are interesting, and I think they closed the gap until the Beltre deal. That, to me, is the big difference between the two.

As for the Coliseum, winning will only hurt their chances if they start to sell out games. Does that happen in Oakland when they do well? (Marc Normandin)

2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brandon Webb a good guy to take a flier on or are you wary of his shoulder health and the long layoff?
(Random GM from Chicago)
Definitely take a flier. If Mark freakin' Prior is still having fliers taken on him, Brandon Webb is worth one or four. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Will Brandon Webb be in the Dback rotation next year? Can they count on anything from him?
(Dmitri Young from Tempe)
I don't see it happening. I think he'll sign with the Cardinals, to be honest, and have a good season. (Eric Seidman)
2010-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Brandon Webb's shoulder see any action in Phoenix this year?
(Paul from DC)
I'm leaning yes. The way Jeff Francis came back has to make Webb's fans happy, though looking at the comparitive timelines isn't that good for the Dbacks and their one-year deal. (Will Carroll)
2010-04-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Brandon Webb's longterm outlook? Does a contract of 3yr/36M seem reasonable for this offseason or is he in the 1 year territory?
(Zeke11 from Det)
3/36? Are you kidding me? The guy is on the path to not pitching for two seasons and you'd offer him a raise? Maybe - MAYBE - he ends up pitching a bit and with the Ben Sheets deal, I guess almost anything is possible, but there's no way I'd do anything more than a Rich Harden deal for Webb unless he comes back and looks lights out. At that point, new ballgame. (Will Carroll)
2010-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat, Shawn. Do you play fantasy baseball? Who do you like better over the next few years: Ben Sheets or Daisuke Matsuzaka? Brandon Webb or Javier Vazquez?
(Dennis from LA)
Assuming all are healthy, Sheets and Webb, based purely on per-start quality. Especially with Vazquez moving into a stadium that really doesn't play into his strengths, and DiceK coming off an injury himself.

But the reality is that Sheets is never going to be healthy over a "next few years" type period, and I don't know if anybody has ever been healthier than Vazquez. If I'm betting on quantity, gotta take those two. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much are you expecting from Brandon Webb this season? From a fantasy standpoint, in what round would you target him?
(Marc from San Antonio, TX)
If his shoulder is healthy, I see no reason for him to not produce. The world seems to have forgotten he existed pretty quickly. I had him in my top 20 last year, you can safely drop him out of that as people will be going for sure things. Not positive on round yet, but I'm weird with pitchers too. (Marc Normandin)
2009-10-06 13:30:00 (link to chat)John: Fill in the blanks. Brandon Webb gets a _____ year deal this offseason at $______ per year (up to $_______ per year with incentives).
(Matt from Chicago)
one-year at $2 million with $6 million in incentives. (John Perrotto)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the expectations for Brandon Webb next season? Will he be ready on Opening Day?
(cubfan131 from IA)
Really tough to read. Any shoulder problem for a pitcher is tough, but Webb was always thought to be immune to those innings. Once again, innings are like smoking ... you don't get cancer the minute you light up and some never do. (Will Carroll)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)so in a perfect world, who does porcello become? brandon webb? kevin brown? and in my biggest nightmare he becomes chien ming wang?
(ct lion from ct)
A couple of chats ago, I was asked who I thought was better for the future between Kershaw and Porcello. I went with Kershaw as I see him becoming a legit #1 pitcher in the future. With Porcello, I simply don't see that. Now, there's nothing WRONG with being a #2 or #3 starter. People pay lots of money for those guys. But Brandon Webb and Kevin Brown each struck out a ton of guys in their first few years. Porcello is still young and if I'm wrong on this I'll buy you a Porcello jersey (save this web URL and hold me to that), but I cannot see him becoming a a 7-8 K/9 guy. (Eric Seidman)
2009-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the ultimate future of both Danny Haren and Brandon Webb going to be with the Diamondbacks? One/both used as trade material, or will they both walk as free agents or re-sign?
(Akneeland from Arizona)
When I spoke to A.J. Hinch about a month ago, he insisted he felt the D-Backs weren't far away from being what they were in 2007 when they got to the NLCS. I assume GM Josh Byrnes feels the same way, so I would suspect the Diamondbacks will try to keep both, though they won't pick up Webb's option, and try to make a run next year. If the teams gets off to a bad start, both could go at the trading deadline. (John Perrotto)
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Roy Halladay baseball's best pitcher? It's not like he hasn't been doing it for a long period of time, and I figure he's got to be given some extra credit for the division he pitches in as well as his ability to pitch more innings than any one else.
(blaseta from Calgary)
I still have Johan Santana atop my list, and I think you can argue that Halladay is the best of the next group down, which would include Brandon Webb, CC Sabathia and Tim Lincecum. Santana is a bit like Albert Pujols now, where he's so good people look for other guys to talk about. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)How can people say that Brandon Webb should win the NL Cy Young? Simple question, it's truly baffeling.
(TheBunk from Toronto)
Probably because he's got 19 wins and has been on the verge of 20 for a couple weeks, though Tim Lincecum (16-3 with an ERA more than a run better and an SNLVAR about 50% better) has probably closed the gap enough to have a pretty good shot. The kid would get my vote, for sure. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina, what do you think that the Snakes will do when Upton comes back? Try Reynolds at 2B and Dunn at 1B? That would sure increase Reynolds' fantasy value! thx
(uptick from st. louis, mo)
Reynolds at second would be fun, in the same that seeing Arci Cianfrocco play short for the Padres in snatches during the '90s was fun. It is *not* something you'll find recommended in the owner's manual, however, and I can imagine it would only really work when you have someone like Randy Johnson starting, ie, a starter who isn't dependent on his infield D (like, say, Brandon Webb). As I took it apart earlier in the week, once Upton's back I really think the path of least resistance is also the best decision: bench Tracy, and move Dunn or Jackson to first. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will, I really need an answer here. My friend and I are having an argument over who would be the Cy Young winner in the NL if the season ended today. We bet a Yoo-hoo on it. Who do you think it would be?
(JoshEngleman from Tamaqua, PA)
If it's me voting, I'd probably go with Tim Lincecum. If you're asking who would win the voting? I'd guess Brandon Webb on wins for a winning team with Carlos Zambrano a close second. (Will Carroll)
2008-04-25 15:00:00 (link to chat)I do the dance of the man who drafted Zack Greinke and Edinson Volquez in the later rounds. Which do I package with one of my excess 3B's to make a move for Brandon Webb? I hate straight fantasy questions, but such joy can apparently inspire great hypocrisy.
(Numfar from Pylea)
Normally I'd say keep the guy with the K rate, but Volquez is a flyball pitcher in a park that punishes same and a manager with a short leash for youngsters, so I'd probalby go with Greinke (Jay Jaffe)
2008-04-25 15:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, I've watched a number of games involving NL West teams this year. If the Diamondbacks get something from Randy Johnson this year (say, 20 decent-to-good starts), aren't they going to be tough to catch. It seems like the Dodgers and Rockies are going to have a tough time putting up the pitching and the Padres bats just aren't anything to write home about.
(squintsp34 from Chicago)
The Snakes are off to a great start, and as I onted atop this week's Hit List, the fact that Micah Owings has been pitching about as well as Brandon Webb and Dan Haren is a big reason why. They started the year with 13 consecutive quality starts between them, and as a whole, the rotation's ERA is still under 3.00. Whether it's Johnson or Doug Davis, if they can get a functional performance from their #4, they'll be very tough to beatn, particularly in a division where the other teams sem content to fall on their faces. (Jay Jaffe)
