2012-07-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)East Coast question from the midwest. Over the second half how far will R.A. Dickey and Johan Santana fall off from their first half performances?
(wauzer from Milwaukee)
Well, I don't think Santana will throw another no-hitter. And I doubt Dickey will throw another one-hitter.

Santana has posted a 5.67 ERA in seven starts since the no-no, and batters are hitting .291/.345/.544 against him over that period. He is better than that, but I think the real concern is workload. How many more innings can he pitch after sitting out all of 2011?

As for Dickey, sometimes knuckleballers have great years. Joe Niekro in 1982. Charlie Hough in 1985. Tim Wakefield in 1995 and 2002. Dickey seems to be having one of those years, as he did in 2010, but with a much higher (and more baffling) strikeout rate. How far will he fall? On the one hand, he has allowed five runs in three of his last four starts, so maybe it's already starting. On the other, he allowed eight in his third start of the year and then went 9-0 with a 1.21 ERA over his next 11. I don't know where his pitches are headed, I don't know where his season is headed. (Geoff Young)
2009-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)After last night, I'm really hoping Wakefield has a few more years in him (so he can hold every Red Sox counting stat record besides strikeouts). Are there any recent comps besides Niekro or are we just in uncharted elderly pitcher territory? Also if you can somehow make a BP event happen here in Boston I will buy you all the beer you can drink
(Jack from Beacon Hill)
Charlie Hough? I hope he keeps it up too, he's been one of my favorites through almost all of my baseball fandom.

Not that I need to be bribed, but I'll mention this to the people upstairs, and we'll see what we can do. I will totally hold you to that bribe though, now that you've offered. (Marc Normandin)
2009-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it a reach to expect 180 innings from Randy Johnson this year?
(Steve Culver from NY)
Probably. The list of pitchers to throw that many innings at his age is rather short (just five), and he hasn't exactly been Mr. Healthy in the recent past. Most of the pitchers to show any durability at this age were knuckleballers -- of the five seasons I just mentioned, three were by Phil Niekro, one by Charlie Hough, one by Jamie Moyer... The thing with Randy is that he's such a historical outlier, physiologically speaking, that predictions are tough to make. Niekro obviously isn't an acceptable comp. (Steven Goldman)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)What should the Red Sox do with Charlie Zink and Jeff Bailey? These guys are putting up obscene numbers down in the international league, but both are past the prospect stage. Even though I fully believe that Zink at least is legit, I can understand that there are other guys in the sox system that look to have brighter careers. Can the Sox get something for these guys, or are they likely to leave as free agents?
(Rob from Brighton)
Zink's interesting, but I suspect it'll have to involve getting dealt as part of a package to a team desperately in need of a starting pitching, even though it would make sense of the Sox to look at him as an mop-up innings sponge (not that they need one) since they've already invested a roster spot in a knuckler-capable backup backstop. Heck, trade him to either Texas team, because I have to think people haven't entirely forgotten Joe Niekro or Charlie Hough.

As for Bailey, he's just the latest guy charged with keeping PawSox fans engaged. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)The old park was just fine to pitch in. Plenty of pitchers were fine there. Ryan, Fergie Jenkins, Gaylor Perry, Ron Darling, Kevin Brown, Kenny Rogers, Charlie Hough, and many others. The new park opened in 1995.
(Ira from North Texas)
Yeah, but they didn't bake any of those guys. They came in as vets (and Ron Darling left as a minor leaguer). Kevin Brown and Kenny Rogers are the only homegrown pitchers of significance in team history. Heck, I'm still waiting for Ed Correa's comeback. (Steven Goldman)
