DateQuestionAnswer
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Of course, with Jocketty now in cincy, does that change your answer?
(mike from chicago)
Whoops. Sorry about that. I still call it "Shea," too, and often talk about Yankee prospects at Columbus.

I wouldn't trade for a 3B. The guy you get might be a win better than Encarnacion over three months, and he could just as easily be two wins' worse. Maybe that's being optimistic about a disappointing player. The Reds would be better served looking for an OBP source in the outfield, where Willy Taveras and Laynce Nix are killing them. (Is Taveras still trying to steal 100 bases? He has some ground to make up.) (Joe Sheehan)
2008-10-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jay, wondering if you think there's any chance Laynce Nix turns into a serviceable 4th of?
(doughowgate from Boston)
Man, this one is out of left field. I'd say the chances are slim to none. Nix has gotten just 91 at-bats over the last three years, his Age 25-27 seasons, and has 12 hits, just three for extra bases. His career line is now .235/.272/.401. he's got a bit of pop and can play defense but his plate disicpline is atrocious (6-to-1 K/BB ratio).

The Brewers view him as organizational fodder, and quite rightly I think. He's a warm body to stick out there for a day or two until a more sufficient reserve can be located. (Jay Jaffe)
