BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to take a flyer on a SP for next year would you rather it be Travis Wood or Carlos Zambrano?
(cubfan131 from Iowa)
Depends on the context. If I really, really needed the innings, I guess I'd go for the non-insane pitcher.

You have to look at a guy like Carlos Zambrano as a lottery ticket. The historical record says he has everything you want from a above-average starter--he even rakes--but heads could explode in that Miami clubhouse this year with some of the people you've got in there.

What do you think of Ozzie Guillen? If he's Captain Shellenburger, you go with Zambrano and cross your fingers. If he's Captain Schettino, don't waste your time.

Also, please write your congressperson about SOPA/PIPA so I can use Wikipedia links for non-baseball stuff. -- Dave (Best of BP with Ben and Dave)
2011-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the rule on releasing players with guaranteed contracts? In suffering through the Teddy Higuera years, I thought you only owed the full amount for the next season. I ask because with Ryan Howard's contract, are the Phillies better off releasing him and going after Prince/ Pujols?
(Capt_Science from Philadelphia)
You confused me for a second, thinking Higuera was on the Phillies at some point.

As for the question, as far as I know the "guaranteed" part of the contract means just that - no matter what happens, Ryan Howard will receive $125 million for the Phillies. I think I remember some cases of players working out a deal with a team to change that guaranteed amount or restructure it, but that's not the same.

If a team could just drop a player and pay him only one year's salary, the Alfonso Soriano's and Vernon Wells' and Carlos Zambrano's and Carlos Lee's of the world would have been cut long ago. (Larry Granillo)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite players to watch this season? Who ya rootin' for?
(Goo Goo the Cat from Prowlin' Around, PA)
Rooting for? Well, I suppose I'm no supposed to root for players, but c'mon, how can you help it? I'm hoping to see John Danks bust out and get the sort of attention he deserves, and for Gordon Beckham to put everything together and be the star we thought he'd be. I want to see Wandy Rodriguez deliver that back half over a full season. I'm looking forward to seeing Carlos Zambrano get back to being in the news for his pitching. I'm wondering if Andy LaRoche puts up more WARP than any other NRI in anybody's camp if he can win the A's job at third base. I want to see Jim Thome's 600th career home run in person. I want to enjoy a full season of Starlin Castro at shortstop, having had to spend too much time away from Chicago last summer. I want to see what Mike Stanton and Logan Morrison do for the Fish, since that's about as entertaining a tandem of hitting prospects of similar vintage on any team anywhere. That's a few, but there are more. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could the Yank's plan B really include Carlos Zambrano? Is Chicago willing to just dump the contract, or would they need/want a good amount of talent back?
(Bill from Omaha)
The Cubs might be willing to deal the contract to get it off the books, and I could see one scenario where Big Z becomes a Jumbo Wells-style beloved competitor in the Bronx, balanced against another (less likely, IMO) scenario where he winds up like Ed Whitson. I think the downside is enough to keep this in the realm of entertaining speculation. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-12-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is the move of Carlos Zambrano to the bullpen the worst roster move any team made last year? If the Giants had missed by a game, maybe keeping Posey in AAA? What other candidates can you think of?
(Razzies from in Baseball)
The first one that comes to mind for me is the Cardinals trading for Pedro Feliz. It didn't cost them much, but really, why bother? They would have been better off calling up Matt Carpenter -- that would at least have had some chance of helping the team. (Ken Funck)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)The Nats could take on salary if a team tried simply to get rid of a contract. Is there any NL player that they could claim with their advantageous waiver position that might be worth paying a large part of an excessive contract? Off the top of my head, someone like Kosuke Fukudome for instance? Might be a bad choice, but you get my point, I hope.
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Actually, a year of Fukudome at the top of the Nats' order would be sort of fun. But generally speaking, there aren't a lot of guys who match up nicely with the Nats. Sure, someone like Carlos Zambrano or Carlos Lee might be out there, but I can't see that fitting all that neatly. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-06-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)I had a startling self-revelation over the weekend. Ok, I'm 40 and perpetually unmarried, largely because I am both initially drawn to women with high drama factors and then eventually repelled by the drama. So, as a cub fan, my favorite player has been Carlos Zambrano. High drama factor, eventually the drama becomes a liability. Granted I never had 40 milion future reasons not to call a realtionship quits, but it's dysfunctional, and we really should, right? Maybe I should become a rays fan, that BJ Upton guy looks pretty interesting...
(Sigmund from Chicago)
Poor Sigmund, you're already at it again given the drama that has surrounded Upton for the past couple of years. Can I suggest lowering your sights and finding a favorite player who will avoid the drama? The Lyle Overbays of the world need fans, too. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does this make sense for the Mets and Cubs? Cubs trade Carlos Zambrano and Alfonso Soriano to the Mets for Luis Castillo, Oliver Perez and Fernando Martinez.
(Matt from Whippleville, NY)
It might work for the Mets, but there's no way it works for the Cubs. Perez is even more dubious as assets go than the Big Z, and Castillo's somebody only the Mets were willing to afford. Put Milton Bradley in Soriano's place, however, and maybe you make Jim Hendry fidget about personal wish fulfillment. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-05 15:30:00 (link to chat)Hello Eric. Who do you like better for the rest of the year Carlos Zambrano or John Maine. Thanks.
(sbryk7 from Brooklyn, NY)
I've never really been high on John Maine, though I can certainly see why others have been. Over the last three years he has seen rather dramatic declines in both his strikeout and walk rates. Zambrano, on the other hand, has consistently shown that he can sustain BABIPs below .300, strand rates in the 75% range, and ERAs that best his FIPs. Additionally, his strikeout rate is at its highest since 2006. As long as he stays healthy (a caveat you could throw out there for every player) I would take him down the stretch. (Eric Seidman)
2009-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will, I look at Matt Cain and say "he's pitched 200+ innings 3 years in a row. This trend shows that he'll likely do the same this year." You look at him and say "his heavy workload on a young arm is more likely breaking it down, rather than proving he's capable." You're clearly right, but I have a hard time thinking I'm completely off base.
(ericmilburn from San Francisco)
I understand why you think that, but over and over we see that the mileage put on an arm before age 24-25 is, no matter how "babied", damaging in the long and short term. Maybe he's the freak that can handle it, but I'm talking about probabilities not certainties. Carlos Zambrano is the comp that comes to mind here, or Jeremy Bonderman. With him and every good young pitcher, I hope I'm wrong. (Will Carroll)
2008-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)With last year's shoulder trouble, and all the innings piled upon it since 2002, is Carlos Zambrano as bright a red as any other pitcher?
(Mike from Chicago)
Somewhere past red. Before the Rule 5, they were showing a highlight reel of the 08 season and when Zambrano dropped to his knees after the no-hitter, I noticed that he couldn't lift his right arm as high as his left. Telling. (Will Carroll)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think we will ever see real two-way players in baseball? Especially in the NL, I see real value in having a guy on the bench you can pitch mop up innings and pinch hit reasonably well. Whatever happened to Brooks Kieschnick? As a side note, as someone who has lived in England for a while, I am struck by the similarities between baseball and cricket. Cricket has "all-rounders", guys who can both bowl (ie pitch) and bat OK. Why don't we?
(erghammer from DC)
Well, Kieschnick wasn't a really good pitcher, so he was an odd sort of utility player, very useful, but also very rare. Generally speaking, I guess I share the skepticism of the scouting community at large when it comes to how often this can be done, because I think the learning curves involved (mastering pitching to advanced competition, *and* mastering hitting advanced pitching) is really very hard. I think we have players who are close to it in Micah Owings or Carlos Zambrano, except that in either instance, the question is what they'd do beyond pitching and pinch-hitting; in Owings' case, I think there's some college-level experience playing in the field, but where on the diamond would you put the Big Z? And what would you do when you wound up getting killed because he got hurt in a rundown or running into an outfield wall? Most teams don't want to deal with that kind of media firestorm, even if they were afforded the rare opportunity. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who is the real Fausto Carmona? Last years stats? This year? Somewhere in between?
(ken from locust grove)
Darn, erased an answer. He's a Carlos Zambrano knockoff--less fastball, less command, more trouble with lefties. A #3 starter with lots of variance. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are the problems Rich Harden has had due to some mechanical flaw, or just his makeup? What chance would you give him of being able to pitch from now through october without a DL break?
(Mike from Chicago)
Harden made some mechanical changes in the off-season and has had a much better result. I have to think that indicates that at least part of the problem was mechanical. As for his chances, well, that's tougher to say. He's made it this far with only one minor injury. If he gave the Cubs the same second half he gave to the A's in the first -- which includes a DL stint -- would that be bad? I'd like to see the Cubs more cautious with Harden than they have been with Carlos Zambrano, because they're two entirely different pitchers. (Will Carroll)
2008-06-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Even if Carlos Zambrano comes back 100%, the Cubs could probably use another starter - assuming they don't get Sabathia (probably can't beat other teams in a prospect deal, if he's even dealt), do you see any good fits out there, or is just a bunch of middling guys to the point where they might just want to hold their chips?
(Robert from Chicago)
I wouldn't count the Indians of the Sabathia sweepstakes. I think the Cubs will definitely try to add a starting pitcher. Though they downplay it, the Cubs know that the club they've put together this season has a chance to be very special and that whole 100th-year anniversary of the last World Series title is hanging over them. Look for them to back some kind of splash before the trading deadline. (John Perrotto)
2008-06-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Hear about Matt Garza seeing a renowned sports psychologist? Do you think he's as "excitable" as Carlos Zambrano or did the Rays just replace one hot-head(Dukes or Delmon, take your pick) for another?
(jlarsen from DRays Bay)
Yeah, I read that. I don't think he is in Elijah Dukes' class (I mean who is? Not even Milton Bradley) or will do something as dumb as Delmon Young did in Class AAA. I'd say he's "excitable" like the Big Z. (John Perrotto)
2008-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will, I really need an answer here. My friend and I are having an argument over who would be the Cy Young winner in the NL if the season ended today. We bet a Yoo-hoo on it. Who do you think it would be?
(JoshEngleman from Tamaqua, PA)
If it's me voting, I'd probably go with Tim Lincecum. If you're asking who would win the voting? I'd guess Brandon Webb on wins for a winning team with Carlos Zambrano a close second. (Will Carroll)
2008-06-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you say is the Cubs' MVP through the first two months of the season? Seems like there are A LOT of viable candidates.
(Scrapper from Itasca)
Probably too many good candidates to name (which is a great problem btw). If I had pick one, I'll go with Carlos Zambrano. He's 8-1 and has gotten off to maybe the best start of his career. You know he's going to give you a great chance to win every 5th day. Offensively, it's just too difficult for me to pick one guy. My honorable mention is Carlos Marmol. (Len Kasper)
2008-05-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is volquez going to drop off a cliff, be pretty good, or does he have the stuff to be an ace?
(justin from Michigan)
Totally for real -- look at his strikeout and groundball rates. The walk rate is highish and is going to cause his ERA to come up a little bit, but I have his QERA at 3.06 right now. His statistics should eventually begin to look a lot like Carlos Zambrano's. (Nate Silver)
2008-04-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)KG, you said earlier that there's not enough info on minor league spring training to do a Monday morning 10-pack. Hey, I sent you a picture of Kyle Blanks with his new '70s-era afro. What more do you need for a column???
(Bill from Tempe, AZ)
This is Bill Mitchell folks. One of our photographers. If you ever see a great photo from a team that has camp in Arizona -- Bill took it.

He also has a great sense for the fun in the game. The Daric Barton mohawk pic, the one with Carlos Zambrano on a bike. We love Bill.

I'm rooting for Kyle Blanks, if only to use that photo for a 10 pack. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for all the pownce updates! What would it take for Carlos Zambrano to not show up red on the THR? Fewer innings pitched, which ironically only probably happens with a minor injury?
(Mike from Chicago)
The irony is that he'd lose value if he was yellow. He'd have a slightly reduced workload. Honestly, the biggest thing he could do would be to change his age and past workload, but that's not possible. The biggest thing he could change would be his pitch efficiency. PIP and Peak PIP are two things I'm taking a much closer look at. (Will Carroll)
2008-02-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)In Jay Jaffe's article today, I noticed that Carlos Zambrano was ranked as the 3rd most valuable pitcher in baseball (warp3) for the past 5 years. I'm a huge cubs fan and this still surprised me. Would you have guessed he was in this spot?
(Ameer from Bloomington, IN)
He's been exceptionally durable and he gains a lot of value with his bat. I don't know that I would have guessed it, but I can't say I'm surprised by it. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am in a keeper league and trying to decide between Fausto Carmona and Carlos Zambrano--Zambrano has done it longer but always seems to be an injury risk where Carmona is younger with more upside...your thoughts?
(jimbo34 from chicago)
I'd agree with you on both. Depends -- are you playing for this year (Zambrano) or building for the future (Carmona). Carmona's much, much more risky this year, even if Cleveland is well aware and handles those risks properly. (Will Carroll)

2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableWell, it was quite a day. Mark Buehrle made the defensive play of the year on the first day of the season, Jason Heyward began the road to stardom at Carlos Zambrano's expense, and we decided that Vicente Padilla dressed in a white leather anything probably qualified as something better left unimagined. Thanks for joining us! (Dan Wade)
2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableNormally allowing a run to score on something other than a homer is a team effort, but Carlos Zambrano did a pretty good job making that Prado run his own fault. (Marc Normandin)
