DateQuestionAnswer
2011-06-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have a very strong pitching staff in a long term keeper Strat-O-Matic 16 team league and I only need five starters. Which five of these would you keep? Josh Beckett, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Zack Greinke, CJ Wilson, Jordan Zimmermann, Clayton Kershaw, Derek Holland, Alexi Ogando, and Chris Narveson. Keep in mind I can keep them forever.
(jhardman from Apex, NC)
Lincecum, Kershaw, Greinke, and Cain seem like obvious choices. I'd probably go with Beckett for the last spot, though Wilson might be safer, given Beckett's age and injury history. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)You are the GM of the Brewers, obviously you need pitching to go behind Gallardo and Wolf (who hasn't been bad the second half)...Who do you get? And I don't think you can get much for Fielder (may be 1 starter)...what do you do...Trade Gamel and Lawrie for more? Keep Fielder and just halfway upgrade? Trade Corey Hart?
(JT from MKE)
I would rather trade Prince Fielder at this point. In the years when his power isn't all-world, his lack of defense cuts into his value big time. The optimism of the offseason will cause someone to give up what the Brewers need if they want to shop him, much more so than during the regular season when they were listening to teams.

Chris Narveson has looked pretty good as of late, though I'm not sure how sustainable it is. Getting Manny Parra out of the rotation is probably for the best. They may want to go for some league average guys who can strike out some batters, because that defense still isn't any good. (Marc Normandin)
2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jay Could you rank the following pitchers going forward: Bud Norris, Kenshin Kawakami, John Ely and Chris Narveson. Thanks
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
Except for Ely, they're all sporting pretty high ERAs at the moment. Narveson has shown he can can miss bats, which is pretty handy for a lefty, Kawakami and Norris showed they belonged at the major league level last year. Ely certainly didn't register as the type of stopper he's been in the past two outings, so I worry that his success may be more short-lived. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many starts do the Brewers give Suppan? Not that their alternatives are very attractive, but we know how this movie ends, right?
(Mike W from Chicago)
It sounds as though the Brewers are closing in on the decision to make David Bush their #4 behind Gallardo, Wolf and Davis, which leaves Manny Parra, Chris Narveson and Suppan battling for one spot. Narveson made a good impression last year, and has further helped his cause this spring, while Parra seems to have really clicked with Rick Peterson and seems eager to mend his wayward ways. I don't think it's out of the question that the Brewers concede Suppan is a sunk cost and cut him by the end of the spring.

And a good riddance it will be. (Jay Jaffe)
