BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who the heck do the Nats use in place of Ivan Rodriguez for the next couple of weeks? Wil Nieves as the statrer is bad enough, but there is nobody else available.
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
As you know, Chris Coste is out for the year, and they've pressed Jamie Burke up to Syracuse to get him back in gear ASAP. And last I heard, Jesus Flores hasn't even tried to catch yet in his slow rehab. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see a mercy-minded swap get made if Burke can't be ready in time, but it reflects an interesting industry-wide issue: the lack of readily available free talent behind the plate. It seems worse this year than it has been in recent memory, but the extent to which that's true deserves further exploration. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-04-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, with Johjima out the Ms have brought up Jamie Burke instead of Jeff Clement. Could the Mariners have done more to drive down Clement's trade value than starting him in AAA and leaving him down there?
(Nick from nyc)
I don't know. They could leak that he has an auto-immune disease, or that he was a predatory lender. Once the Mariners signed Griffey, Clement was screwed, but the Johjima injury should have saved him. It was a chance to give him two weeks of catching in the majors to see if he can really play the position. The only guess I'd make is that they've decided he can't, and that his future is at 1B/DH.

Lightning round. I could do this all day, but I'm getting hungry. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Paul DePodesta becoming GM in Seattle make too much sense or do you see him simply being Kevin Towers' eventual heir?
(R.J. from BeyondtheBoxscore)
Good question. I'm not sure how that Seattle job plays out, but I think Bavasi bought his way out of the job for good by giving Kenji Johjima a three year, $25 million extension in late April. Johjima's 32, he's down to .217/.259/.304, and now Jamie Burke is going to start catching for both Bedard and Washburn, presumably because of Johjima's struggles and because those pitchers would rather throw to Burke. In other news, Jeff Clement has homered in three straight down in Triple-A. (Caleb Peiffer)
