BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-10-12 12:00:00 (link to chat)So....should I maybe have held off on the Bud Black extension until after he oversaw yet another historic late-season collapse? How many teams, in the span of 4 years, have seen statistical failures as big as the 2007 and 2010 Padres?
(Jed Hoyer from San Diego)
Gene Mauch to one side, I don't think managers deserve all the blame for late-season collapses. The Padres skid was definitely terrible, and losing 10 games straight is a good way to blow it. But the players played--and lost--those games. Other than Adrian Gonzalez (who hit .361/.439/.528 in those 10 games), the team just plain stunk. Some of that is on Black, but more of it is just on bad play. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you say is the best manager never to win a pennant?
(BL from Bozeman)
I suppose a lot of people would say Gene Mauch, but I feel like he was overrated. Somehow all his near misses were never his fault... I haven't made a study of Jimmy Dykes' managerial career, but he managed 20 seasons without coming particularly close. It would be interesting to see what he brought to the job that kept going, other than inertia on the part of the Chicago White Sox organization. (Steven Goldman)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Love your writing, Christina -- you're the reason I started subscribing to BP last year! Rauch aside, it seems like the trade price for relievers it too damn high while the return is too damn variable. Why don't you see more teams trying to convert their best pitching prospects into half-season relievers (i.e., Chamberlain and Masterson)? Or are a lot of them doing it and I'm just too far on the East Coast to notice it?
(Dan from (Newton, MA))
Thank you Dan, I'll hope to live up to that commitment. It can be too high, yes, and yes, I'd like to see more in-season conversions of that type. Steven would tell you a Stengel story about how Casey would pick his best arms and run with, but so too would Earl Weaver, or Bobby Cox (take a look at Jimmy Key's rookie season) or Gene Mauch (ditto, but with Chuck Finley). The more you let yourself get zombified by our contemporary fixation on role-playing, the more you become the creature of that habit. (Christina Kahrl)
