BP Chats

2009-04-10 16:30:00 (link to chat)Hey CK! Just counting down hours until my flight up to Oakland for Opening Night. So far this season, A's hitters seem to really be focusing on going up the middle and to the opposite field. Is this early-season noise, or a product of new hitting coach Jim Skaalen?
(ashitaka from long beach, ca)
Hope you have a great time at the ballpark; I know it's not really the same thing now that the Coliseum's been mauled beyond recognition, but I sort of feel about the A's home park the way some Mets fans feel about Shea--sure, it's a pit, but it's *our* pit.

I don't think we can put this on Skaalen just yet; this isn't quite like Rick Burleson jumping on Mark McGwire to hit singles to right, and getting the single worst season of Mac's career for his troubles. It's important to keep in mind the talent that's on this year's roster, never mind that we don't have Emil Brown to kick around any more. Adding hitters like Orlando Cabrera and Nomar Garciaparra gives you a lineup with people who put the ball in play a lot more often than those of us who still treasure the memories of watching Olmedo Saenz or Matt Stairs or Ben Grieve (at his best) taking their cuts. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, thanks for the chats, love your work. Have Jeter's 20-20 (and even maybe, *shudder*, 15-15) seasons gone the way of the Hapsburgs? Small sample size aside, I like that he's not striking out as much but his singles-hitter/GIDP act is really starting to wear on me!
(Jake from Augusta)
Thanks Jake... 20-20, yes, but let's not get too down on the man. He may be hitting like Rick Burleson, but I don't think we need to confuse the Captain with the Rooster just yet. (Christina Kahrl)
