DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is a player you thought would be a no doubt star and flopped? And on the other side, who was a guy you thought wouldn't amount to anything and became a star?
(Robert from California)
I thought Kevin McReynolds would be a big star. Maybe I was focusing too much on tools. With the benefit of hindsight, I believe that this athlete’s cool demeanor reflected a lack of drive. Later I thought that Grady Sizemore would be a perennial All-Star, even though he struck out too much. I didn’t realize how physically brittle he would be. (I’d love to see Grady make a comeback, even for a season or two.)
I didn’t think that Ryne Sandberg would be a Hall of Famer—or anything close to it. I saw him when the Phillies still imagined him as a shortstop, and I remember writing in my notebook that he only had “warning track power.” But Dallas Green knew what the kid could do, and one of his first moves when he went to Chicago was to trade Ivan DeJesus to the Phils for Larry Bowa and Sandberg. What a steal! And what a great fit for Sandberg as a second baseman hitting in Wrigley Field. (Kevin Kerrane)
2012-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of career numbers would we probably have seen from Bo Jackson with out the injuries and a full focus on baseball ?
(19braves77 from Pensacola,FL)
Now that's an interesting question. From 88-90, he went from 2.1 WARP to 3.5 to 4.5. Now, you can't assume the upward trend will continue, but as you imply, Bo was not your typical case. Best case, a Sammy Sosa type career (with many fewer homers due to a later start and the overall environment). More likely case, a slightly faster, slightly better defending version of Kevin McReynolds (stat-wise, not excitement) (Dan Turkenkopf)
2008-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steven, How surprised at you that Matt Holliday is flirting with a 30/30 season, despite missing almost a month? He could always run a little but did you ever expect this type of steals production from him? Is this a one year thing or will he continue to run like this?
(bateman19 from Boston)
I think it's really cool. In a way, it's always more admirable/exciting when a non-burner picks his spots and has a great basestealing season - Holliday has only been caught once. I mean, Jose Reyes can steal a base when he feels like it, but a player like Holliday really has to pick his spots, so you're not just seeing speed at work, but also smarts. I don't really think this will be a regular thing given his age - he'll go back to his previously established levels. I'm reminded of Kevin McReynolds' 1988... (Steven Goldman)
