BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Matty Matt! - Between Shaun Marcum, Jeff Francoeur and Nyjer Morgan, who has the best chance, if any of having a meaningful impact to the tribe this year?
(tablack from Cleveland)
That's a toughie. Betting on oft-injured pitchers isn't smart, and Jeff Francoeur is and has been done for a while now. So I guess that leaves Morgan who hit pretty well in Japan last season. I'll take him! And unless you're a big believer in David Murphy, Cleveland may need some outfield help this season. (Should've signed Grady Sizemore! joke) (Matthew Kory)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given his lefty/righty splits in his career, should Ethier be a platoon player?
(Nathan from LA)
That depends on whether you like a 649 OPS out of your right fielder. Even Jeff Francoeur is at 665 for his career. Seems to me it wouldn't be hard to find a random guy to take those 200 PA away from Ethier and turn them into something useful. Maybe the Dodgers will find some change under the cushions and make that happen. (Geoff Young)
2012-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Royals stated that their goal for the offseason is making a strong push at improving their rotation. With that being quite obvious, why does Dayton Moore remain employed?
(jlarsen from chicago)
I guess because his deal runs through the end of 2014? Dunno man.

He did put together this core of good young talent, though, so give him some credit for that. Then again, he traded for Jonathan Sanchez and signed Jeff Francoeur.

I'm as puzzled as you. Being a baseball GM is really, really difficult. (Ian Miller)
2010-08-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)After mining the relevant data, is there anything that tells you that Tyler Colvin can settle in as a .280/.340/.840 type if player? His K rate can't stay this high, can it?
(Matt from Chicago)
I relayed this question to resident Cubs fan and data miner Colin Wyers. I'll let his answer stand on its own: "Colvin exists to punish me for every time I've laughed at Jeff Francoeur." (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc: Thanks for the chat. The Mets. Tyler Kepner in an article in the NYT this morning says, basically, the pitching is fine and up to a pennant race, it's run support that has doomed the Mets. (Defense isn't that great either.) We have certainly seen their inability to hit for Santana, who has lost three in a row recently because the team can't plate runs for him. And injuries don't tell the whole tale. Do you see this in the numbers? Is it mostly (home) park effects? This team was not, I think, built correctly to score runs at Citifield. Does your view of the numbers bear this out?
(BeplerP from New York City)
The offense isn't good, as you say. They have a .255 TAv, which is five points below the league average. So it isn't necessarily bad, but it's no better than the Athletics or the Indians, neither of which is known for their lineup. A couple of things: not playing Pagan every day, not having a healthy Beltran from day one, Jason Bay being concussed and not having a chance to redeem his seaso and Jose Reyes deciding walking isn't cool anymore put a dent in an offense that should have been much better. They were capable of being an 85-90 win team if things broke right for them, but they have had more go wrong than right.

That's not to say they are without blame of course--there were a lot of risky players on the roster (Oliver Perez, Jeff Francoeur)--but the lineup was designed to succeed at Citi. The problem was losing a lot of OBP sources that would have helped them in a park designed to help pitchers. Let's not get into how Jerry Manuel handled it though. (Marc Normandin)
2010-07-29 16:30:00 (link to chat)So if the price for Oswalt + $11m was a rotation-ready arm and two minor leaguers, what was the price if the buyer was willing to take on the salary? Could the Mets have unloaded a Francoeur on them, plus a prospect or two?
(Dan from Brooklyn)
Why would the Astros want Jeff Francoeur? He's a non-tender candidate and the Astros aren't going to compete in the near future even if he isn't non-tendered? The Mets apparently needed to trade Niese to match Happ, which seems a little silly to me. Sounds like Ed Wade might be overvaluing Happ's 2009 BABIP numbers to me, but that's just a speculation based on watching him trade for pitchers with low BABIPs for a decade in Philly. (Matt Swartz)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given Lee's incredible walk rate, Strat needs a way to have a pitcher negate walks on the hitter's card.
(dianagramr from NYC)
I wish we could watch Cliff Lee face Jeff Francoeur 100 times in a row, as a social experiment. Would Francoeur learn anything? At-bat after at-bat, he would be systematically dismantled in 3-4 pitches, and probably never move the average up as you went deeper into the 100 PA count. (Marc Normandin)
2010-06-23 19:00:00 (link to chat)What becomes of Pagan once Beltran comes back? Will Beltran even last more than a few weeks beore hurting himself again anyways.
(paulbellows from Calgary)
Everyone wants to talk about "what will happen to Pagan," and I mean I guess I get that, but I think the real question is - what happens to Jeff Francoeur? Because if you declare that Beltran is your center fielder and Jason Bay is your left fielder (and you should), then deciding who your right fielder is settles all else. And Pagan may end up being a victim of his own versatility and Jeff Francoeur's Reality Distortion Field. Because let's face it - Pagan was ALWAYS the better choice to be the starting right fielder. And you start to wonder if any amount of evidence will convince the Mets of that. (Colin Wyers)
2010-06-07 18:30:00 (link to chat)And even if you don't post this I'd like you to note somewhere that I'm gonna go ahead and say the Giants just drafted Jeff Francoeur the sequal (at least I can pinch run).
(biglou115 from Arkansas)
I'll post it and heartily disagree with you. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-05-11 16:30:00 (link to chat)Thinking about Adam Jones, is there any research that supports/refutes the idea of sending a guy to the minors to work out of a deep slump? On the surface it seems to have worked for Jones comp Torii Hunter in 2000.
(Drungo from SoMd)
I'm not sure if research can support or refute this on the aggregate, but it must be a case by case basis kind of thing. For Jones, he's swinging at all types of pitches out of the zone-- 41%. For comparison, the league average is around 25% and Jeff Francoeur is at 43%. So, Jones needs to work on pitch recognition because he's not swinging that much overall. I don't know if demoting him to recognize inferior pitches builds him up to recognizing MLB quality pitches. (Matt Swartz)
2010-03-23 16:30:00 (link to chat)Stop the presses!! Jeff Francoeur got two BBs!! In the SAME GAME!!!!
(Guillermo from Montevideo)
Meh. Pedro Feliz got four walks in a game last year. I wouldn't bet on either doing it again any time soon. (Matt Swartz)
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on the Mets roster as it stands now?
(Phil S. from NJ)
It's motivation for people to sign elsewhere, a la Ben Sheets. Jeff Francoeur? Little Sarge? No offense from first base or catcher? A rotation of Johan Santana and the Question Marks? And yet people keep flogging Luis Castillo--of course he took the money. You'd take the money. I'd take the money. He didn't make anyone offer it to him. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jeff Francoeur really going to be the full time right fielder for the Mets next year? Can't Omar trade him to the Royals for something?
(BigMetsFan from New York)
As a fan of the Mets arch-rivals, I will issue the following answers to your two questions: I hope so and I hope not. (Eric Seidman)
2009-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, how do the Braves fix their absolute mess of an outfield, now and down the road?
(steveomd from Ohio)
Start by pulling the ol' switcheroo the next time the traveling secretary hands out plane tickets to Jeff Francoeur and Garret Anderson, maybe something along the lines of a flight to Tijuana via Nova Scotia.

I'd start with the assumption that McLouth should be playing a corner position (does he have the arm for right?), platoon Gregor Blanco and Omar Infante in center, at least until you're satisfied Schafer is ready, and try to find a lefty bat that can match with Matt Diaz in left. And look forward to the day when Jason Heyward is ready (two years?). (Jay Jaffe)
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe -- What's the correct solution to the Jeff Francoeur situation? Stick with him? Send him to AAA? Try to trade him? If they went with option 2 or 3, who should they plug in to RF? They don't seem to have many options.
(Brent from Raleigh)
The correct solution is to play someone better. The Braves don't really have that option, however, so you stick with him until that someone comes along. I'd get Gregor Blanco back into the mix, myself, but then again, I would have had him as the everyday CF or LF to start the season.

If the Braves stay in contention, they will have to trade for a corner OF. There's just no other way. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Braves: bullish or bearish as a surprise team this year? They look real good so far in ST even without some of their core guys.
(Doctor Jeckyl from New York)
I was on their bandwagon last year, and looked pretty smart for it (I thought) for the first few weeks of the season. Then their pitching imploded, Jeff Francoeur threw away the season. For that reason, I'm leery of them this year, though they are greatly improved in the starting pitching department. The offense strikes me as potentially thinner than you'd like. (Steven Goldman)
2008-06-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Mr. Sciambi, as a play by play guy, how do you decide how to balance calling the game with offering analysis?
(Steve from North Dakota)
Steve, good question. It's interesting because again, I am the play-by-play guy and not an ex big leaguer. But I feel like I have something to add and so if you were to ask me what makes me "different" it's that I analyze more than the average play-by-play guy. But that can only happen if you have a partner that's willing to exhance ideas. My first responsibility is to call the game but if, for example, Jeff Francoeur makes a bunch of outs on the first pitch, I feel compelled to let people know that even though they're frustrated watching that, Jeff's lifetime average on the first pitch is .350 or so. It's not an easy balance, I just pick my openings to analyze but my first responsibility is to call the game. (Jon "Boog" Sciambi)
2008-03-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)PECOTA doesn't see the big breakout you had earlier predicted for Jeff Francoeur. Are you sticking to your guns?
(RahulN from GA)
Absolutely. The change in his plate discipline last season seals it for me, and the combination of youth and MLB experience is a powerful one. He'll be on the All-Star team. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)PECOTA doesn't see the big breakout you had earlier predicted for Jeff Francoeur. Are you sticking to your guns?
(RahulN from GA)
I think I answered this one already, but it never left the queue, and there was a followup I can't find.

Someone compared Francoeur's walk rate jump to Corey Patterson's in 2005 and called it small. Francoeur actually doubled his unintentional walk rate. That's a big jump, given that his K rate and XBH rate and G/F didn't change. He just walked more often. I think the overall impact of that change will be a key to this year. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Sheehan recently picked Jeff Francoeur as his top breakout candidate for 2008...what do you think?
(uptick from St. Louis, MO)
Joe and I have been arguing about baseball for 15 years now, and for all the stereotypes that exist about sabermetric "groupthink", we rarely see eye-to-eye on a lot of topics. (Don't get Joe started on my theories for winning at altitude, for instance.)

But when it comes to Frenchy, I agree. A year ago Francoeur looked like the new Joe Carter, with the 100+ RBIs and the sub-.300 OBP. But he made a lot of progress last year, and he's just 24, the same age Carter was as a rookie. Francoeur's .338 OBP last year is nothing to write home about, but do you know how many times Carter had an OBP that high? Try zero. None. Nil. Nada. (Rany Jazayerli)
2008-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)How long can Atlanta keep posting competitive seasons, before they must withdraw to rebuild?
(patsen29 from Toronto)
Until Chipper Jones and John Smoltz act their respective ages. I can't answer it past that, but those two guys make it hard to not try and win each year. There's talent around them as well.

Last Braves note: I think Jeff Francoeur could go nuts this year, have a .320/.380/.550 kind of season. He improved in a lot of ways in 2007, and he's now 24 with a ton of experience. (Joe Sheehan)
