BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-07-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Zachary, how do you think the AZ outfield will shake out when Adam Eaton returns? Parra has done a great job. Eaton has seems a perfect fit for my "hard nosed" style of baseball. But we also have Cody Ross, Jason Kubel, and AJ Pollock. Something has to give, right?
(Kirk Gibson from AZ)
Oh man, something definitely has to give. The easy answer would have been to trade Kubel because it's a final guaranteed year, but you'd be selling low on him. He's had a bad year. This was why I called Ross my least favorite move of the offseason. Not because he's a bad player, but because it's three years at high price and crippling to the state of the outfield. They traded Justin Upton after that and now are in a position where they're putting something useful on the bench.

Trade Parra at peak value? I'm not sure I would do it, but I'd always listen. (Zachary Levine)
2013-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Expectations for G. Parra this year. More of the same or does he step up?
(Jay from Madison)
He's been a little too inconsistent already to say more of the same because there really isn't a same. He was a 3-win player in 2011 thanks to some good but unsustainable corner outfield defense, but took a hit on offense and defense last year.

He's had a high BABIP for his career, and his true talent is probably somewhere in the middle, but I still like it better than Cody Ross given the price. (Zachary Levine)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Rays, this offseason, have been uncharacteristically active this offseason thus far and still have a few moves to make before ST starts. They could use another OFer(unless they go against their own grain and start Myers), but need a DH(possibly a platoon-mate for almost-batless Loney) and a 2nd Catcher. With options dwindling for DHs with 1B or C backgrounds, should the Rays: (A)push for a switch-hitter 1B like Berkman or Morales (B) Surprise people with a signing of AJ Pierzynski (C) Swoop in and sign Cody Ross (D) Option A with caveat of OF Ryan Sweeney added. (E) Shrug, say "You Can't Predict Friedman" and let him surprise us all.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Not B. C would give Jason Collette a coronary, he hates Ross. More likely D or E. They'll do something, though (he states obviously). (Paul Sporer)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance the Sox go after J. Upton now that AZ has inexplicable added another OF??
(Shawny from Rocky Hill, CT)
Shawny, good to hear from you. If there's one thing I've learned from watching Kevin Towers operate over the years, it's that anything can happen. Jason Kubel didn't seem necessary last off-season, ditto Cody Ross this winter. Upton seems to be available, but I don't know what he would fetch; given his uneven and perplexing development trajectory, I'm not even sure what he's worth. Still, a change of scenery might do him good. (Geoff Young)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)So, Detroit's looking for a right-handed hitting outfielder to platoon with Dirks. . . assuming that resigning Delmon I-don't-want-to-DH Young is out of the question, who is available? Do they have any depth anywhere for trading?
(John Carter from Toronto (Tigers fan originally from the New York a)
Glad to see you in the queue again, John Carter.

Jon Morosi reported (and then retracted) yesterday that the Tigers had a two-year offer out to Scott Hairston, and while that report proved inaccurate, I think Hairston could be a fit there. Cody Ross is another possibility, though his price would need to come down if he's going to serve in a platoon role, and they could also consider Andruw Jones or Matt Diaz.

In terms of pieces the Tigers could trade, Brennan Boesch and Andrew Oliver were mentioned yesterday by CBS Sports' Danny Knobler: https://twitter.com/DKnobler/status/275663979584552962. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)If the Red Sox were to sign Shane Victorino, where do you think Cody Ross ends up?
(GJones20 from Boston)
Pulling from a slew of Ross-related reports from the last few days, GJones 20, apart from the Red Sox, the Braves, Giants, Phillies, Tigers, and Yankees have been mentioned as possible destinations. Outside of Fenway Park, he probably fits better in a platoon role, and out of that bunch, the Phillies are the only team that I could see considering Ross for an everyday job. If his price tag comes down to something more commensurate with a part-time gig, then the list of possible destinations could expand further. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jason. Will the Red Sox give Ryan Kalish a full-time job or does the organization view him, like Josh Reddick before him, as a major league player but not good enough for Boston?
(michaelmcduffe from ottawa)
: I think Kalish will get the chance to earn at-bats this year, even if the Sox re-sign Cody Ross and add a third outfielder to put on the other side of Ellsbury. He has to stay healthy first, but he can be a starting-caliber corner bat in any town, and I suspect he’ll get that shot in 2013, since it's asking a lot to expect Cherington to land two outfielders this winter. (Jason A. Churchill)
2012-11-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your best guess regarding the Phillies outfield solution?
(smitty99 from Federal way, WA)
Thanks for coming, smitty99. Amaro said the other day that he's looking at free-agent solutions rather than trade options, so as long as the price tags on the center fielders don't grow terribly exorbitant, I think one of them will land in Philly. My guess there is Upton, but it might just as easily be Bourn. Aside from that, I think they'll give Dom Brown a fair chance to win an everyday job for 2013, and possibly go with a timeshare of some sort in left. Cody Ross wouldn't be a bad fit, and after 2010, if you can't beat 'em, add 'em, right? (Daniel Rathman)
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What is going on with Ben Cherington? He's supposed to be "smart" and has smart guys around him, but Napoli/C.Ross/Swisher? What in the world? Going for an un-clutch All-Star lineup? Napoli is nearing end of peak years and swung at more pitches out of zone than Carlos Pena. Swisher plays decent in regular season, but he enters "Witness Protection Program" in postseason. Cody Ross is the only guy I'd keep, but that's only to make up for signing Gomes for more money than he was even asking for.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Swisher's postseason struggles are interesting, aren't they? Normally we sabermetric types are the first to defend fleeting un-clutchness, but in Swisher's case, the sample size is starting to get rather, well, not-small. But I don't think it would be not-small enough to dissuade me from signing him for what he does during the first six months of the season. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why do so many people complain about the WS winner because they weren't built to last? Why should that matter? They have a shiny new flag and you don't. Too many screeds are written with the downside of the Giants as the main points, instead of a great late-season and post-season run. The fact that we shouldn't expect a repeat next year should be a postscript at most, no? In other words, don't forget to celebrate the baseball before you skewer the managerial approach. Am I wrong?
(R.A.Wagman from @RAWagman)
I completely agree. If there was such a thing as Marlins fans I would pose the question of whether they cried over the fact that the team couldn't compete in 1998 after winning it all in 1997, or if they basked in the warm glowing warming glow of a world series title. I think a lot of this stems from the fact that people don't like certain teams to have the upper hand on theirs, or because certain people don't agree with the style of the Giants club. I know a lot of people like to make fun of Brian Sabean and so the initial reaction is to detract from him instead of giving the Giants credit. I also think people just have a hard time believing how a team with Aubrey Huff, Cody Ross, Freddy Sanchez, et al, managed to win a world series, so the kneejerk reaction is to say "But you won't do it again!"

As I said earlier, the story here should be how dominant that entire pitching staff looked. The Giants will not score a lot of runs over the next couple of years, but that is the best 5-man starting rotation in baseball. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Technically, Eric, the chat still didn't start on time. Care to weigh in on Normandin/Jaffe's Papelbon debate?
(Alfred Eisenstein from Brussels)
My take is more closely linked to Jay's, though I certainly agree with components of Marc's argument. For instance, I am very much a proponent of the idea of non-tendering players whose perceived value vastly exceeds the actual value, so long as the resources saved in not tendering the player a contract can be better allocated elsewhere. For instance, the Marlins should non-tender Cody Ross, because he's only a decent player, and will not play a role in their future. Why not use the extra $6-7 mil elsewhere? It's not as if they don't have prospects capable of filling in around the diamond at potentially the same numbers as Ross, and not employing Ross won't really impact their playoff chances.

With Papelbon, the big difference for me is that the Red Sox can afford to pay him $11-12 million and still spend elsewhere to improve the team. And keep in mind that the Sox were right in the thick of things until the injury bug hit the team. As Jay pointed out, reliever performance is incredibly volatile, and if there is a chance that Papelbon could revert to his sub-2.50 ERA ways next year, that is probably worth the risk of paying a less effective reliever a lot of money, given the ample resources at the Sox's disposal. To them, the $12 million isn't that lofty of an investment, especially if it means that there is a greater than 1/3 chance that he can return to his dominant form. And with relievers, I might even handicap that at greater than 50 percent given their volatility. So I am siding with Jay in that he should be tendered a contract, but only due to the context of the team -- if we were talking about a reliever on, say, the Brewers, no, he should be non-tendered at that point. (Eric Seidman)
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you do with Juan Rivera, Cody Ross, and Carlos Lee in a 12 team mixed roto league? They're KILLING me!!
(Andy M from Minneapolis)
Sacrifice Carlos Lee to the gods in the hopes that it appeases them, therefore improving the performance of your other outfielders.

I was down on Lee a bit this year since he started to slip in 2009, but this seems kind of dramatic. Then again, given his body type and comps and all that, I guess it wouldn't be a surprise if he fell off the planet all at once. (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy, Who are some players that you hope to add to all your fantasy teams this year (mid to late round)? Thanks, Dan
(dandaman from Sea Cliff)
I got a couple questions to this effect. I think Cody Ross remains underrated, especially if you play in a league with individual outfield positions. I think Rafael Soriano is a great closer for where he is going in drafts. I'm big on a bounce back from Jay Bruce as well. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who did you most enjoy interviewing in the past year that you've never interviewed before, and why?
(Chris from Cambridge)
Cody Ross, because I walked away thinking more highly about the human race. (David Laurila)
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can the Tigers make a legit move on Josh Willingham and/or Jarrod Washburn? Or will they get what's behind Door #3 and end up w/Cody Ross? Thanks.
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
I think it's door No. 3. They don't really have much in the way of prospects that excited other teams. However, I don't think Cody Ross is a bad consolation prize. He's a pretty underrated player in my book. (John Perrotto)
2009-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)A couple of questions about your interviews. Who's the nicest, genuinely nicest person you've interviewed? Who has been the most surprisingly candid with you? I enjoy your interviews, but sometimes the subject is well-skilled in not revealing anything or offending anyone. Thanks.
(GrinnellSteve from Iowa)
Far too many players are well-skilled in not revealing much, which is no big surprise given that they are often schooled to do so. The nicest person? That is difficult to answer. I will say that the most recent Q&A to go up, Cody Ross, is probably on the short list.

The most candid is also a difficult question. Off the top of my head, maybe Shea Hillenbrand? (David Laurila)
2009-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your Cody Ross piece was what prompted me to ask. I think it was Christina who suggested my White Sox go after him. After reading your interview I thought there was a guy I could really pull for.
(GrinnellSteve from Iowa)
I hear you, because I'm not scared to admit that I root for good people. That said, a team full of .330/.450/.540 A-Holes is prefereable to a team full of .275/.350/450 Cody Ross's if the goal is to attend a World Series parade. (David Laurila)
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Joe: I was in Florida last week to see Cody Ross throw an inning in relief. I'm wondering with all the research on bull pen usage and win expectancy, what's the point of a game (inning and number of runs down) where a team should use a position player to pitch? Second, why don't see more of this? Could a team gain an advantage by carrying the "Ultimate Utility Man" who could play a couple of different positions and pitch in blowouts? I know the Cards used Miles as such lat year.

This was tried in recent seasons with Brooks Kieschnick and David McCarty, to minimal effect. It hasn't caught on, as teams really seem to want to have as many actual pitchers at their disposal--the Padres had 14 on their roster for a couple of days this April--as humanly possible. And creativity is often punished by death in MLB. (Joe Sheehan)

(Hank from Miami)
I like Cody Ross a lot, and PECOTA does too, though his forecast (under 500 PA) doesn't make it look like that so much. I'm not sure if he's going to explode the same way Ludwick did, but both fantasy owners and the Marlins should be pleased that he's now been set free. (Marc Normandin)
2008-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)I caught the last game at Shea and was impressed by Maybin. Physically he's imposing, athletic, fast-- made a couple great plays, but is he ready to contribute and how much of an upgrade will a full season of Maybin be over... whoever they played in CF this year? Also what do the Fish do about the logjam of mediocre corner bats?
(aaron from NJ)
Maybin's a tough read. He's got a ton of talent, but he didn't exactly rip Double-A to pieces, and he's going to be just 22 years old next year. I think they should start him out in Triple-A, see how he reacts, and then bring him along accordingly.

The Marlins ran Cody Ross out to center for 109 games this year (97.1 adjusted games) and he hit .260/.316/.488. That's an EqA of .276, but there's plenty of room for improvement given the low OBP. Maybin should be capable of surpassing that once he is ready. (Marc Normandin)
