BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)How is a guy nicknamed Walrus going to cover the vast foul territory at the infield corners in Oakland?
(ashitaka from long beach, ca)
To be fair, Mark McGwire wasn't exactly known for cat-like swiftness. Nor, at the end, was Carney Lansford. That said, I've not seen Wallace play live, and television's a lousy way to judge whether a guy moves around well to cover foul territory. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)How can the Reds lose on the Rolen deal? Their system is full of fantastic arms, they have no financial limitations so they don't need cheap, young talent, and plenty of teams have won without a major league left fielder or a starting shortstop. Umm...I hope...
(Oliver from Cincinnati)
If Scott Rolen's just this guy (non-Zaphod) who hits singles and needs the park to produce his power, that's not all that special, and people might think they've gotten "SCOTT ROLEN, GREEK GOLDEN GOD," when they've gotten the petering-out tail end of a great player's career. He wasn't walking, he wasn't hitting for much pop, and while you can credit his physical skill in adapting to his newfound limitations (a la Carney Lansford or Brook Jacoby), the Reds aren't getting the guy we all remember in a Phillies uni, or the one who showed up at times with the Cardinals. It's a placeholder pickup that I expect figures to disappoint some people's expectations. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)I haven't heard a lot of noise about what a great year Scott Rolen is having. Do you think this performance is sustainable while he's healthy, or is he just hit-lucky?
(E from B)
It's not really all that noise-worthy, but it is interesting, sort of like Brook Jacoby's last good season, or Carney Lansford's willful transmogrification into a contact hitter. I don't see these things as obvious positives, just interesting. If hitting this way helps Rolen stay healthy enough to contribute, maybe he erases some of the frustrations with the challenge trade. Still, less is less, and what he's doing these days is less than he's been able to do in his career. Maybe it's an interesting suggestion that player aging patterns might revert to older, pre-PED forms. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jack Hannahan seems like an adequate replacement for Chavez at the plate, but won't the A's pitchers miss his defense? C'mon--six gold gloves!
(dwiest12 from Vienna VA)
Wow, there's a quadruple reversal of fortune... Hannahan's a decent enough defender, so it isn't like we just went from Brooks Robinson back to Carney Lansford impression of dry timber in high winds. The fact that anyone might see the offensive trade-off as even is what for me is so jarring; Chavez's offensive potential is what we've lost, but admittedly we started losing it years ago, and what we're missing still is that wishcasted maybe that Chavez's bat might yet represent.
