DateQuestionAnswer
2012-06-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think that the Nationals can keep up their winning? Or will they become just another average team?
(Luis from Richmond)
I do think they can keep up their winning, as their record is essentially in line with their peripheral factors; their actual winning percentage (.581) and Hit List Factor (.580) are both tops in the league, and right in line with each other.

That said, they're likely going to have to do something about Stephen Strasburg late in the year, whether they hew to a hardline stance regarding his innings total or play it by ear. With Chien-Ming Wang turning into a pumpkin, they'll eventually need a reinforcement for that rotation, somebody better than the farmed-out John Lannan. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Nationals find themselves in a position that would be a little uncomfortable if it didn't contrast so favorably with any decision they have had the past 7 years. Chien-Ming Wang is going to come back from the DL, and find Ross Detwiler in his spot with a 3-1 record and 1.59 ERA. Strasburg, Gonzalez and Zimmermann aren't going anywhere, and Edwin Jackson is only having a lesser year by comparison. We are told Wang can't pitch out of the bullpen. What can Mike Rizzo do?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Not pitch Chien-Ming Wang? I'm not sure Chien-Ming Wang's health is any more relevant to the Nationals right now than, like, Dick Cheney's health. (Sam Miller)
2011-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)I think the real problem with Joba is that he used to throw 100 mph when he first came up, and now he doesn't. That slider he's so in love with is only effective when you're gearing up to hit 100 mph heaters. Why does he no longer hit 100 on the gun? Maybe he was really airing it out at first, trying to impress. Or maybe they were using the Chien-Ming Wang gun every time Joba pitched.
(John Foley from Los Angeles)
Now where was I? Thanks for holding up for the radio. Always a fun time with Bob Haynie. As I said in an earlier comment, he fell on his arm in a game in Texas, and what was billed as a minor injury at the time seems to have had major repercussions for his velocity. (Steven Goldman)
2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know this is generally Will's area but do you see Webb as being worth a flier? Shoulder injuries seem particularly tought to overcome.
(Matt from Chicago)
I think he will be, and the Nats are reportedly interested. Maybe that's a case of trying to repeat the tedium of the Chien-Ming Wang experience, especially if Webb was having a hard time getting his stuff into the mid-80s in instructional league, but an incentive-laden deal isn't the worst idea in the world. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)It seems clear from most of the Nationals blogs that The Constituency is no longer patient, and Mike Rizzo's honeymoon is already over. I have been pretty happy with the moves the Nats made this off-season, but I have to agree that too much depends on the health of folks like Chien-Ming Wang, Scott Olsen and even Chris Duncan. The Nats will be better this year, because they can't help but be. However, is the view of the Nats' offseason more charitable at BP or anywhere else outside of Nats fans' disgruntled little world?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
The kinds of things the Nationals need to do to improve their team just can't be done in a single offseason. To evaluate them on that basis almost isn't fair. I feel the same way about Rizzo. I have a hard time identifying actual things he's done that are that bad. I don't love the Pudge signing and Wang is probably done (but it's a nice gamble). They have to focus on the draft and on international scouting. There's no other path to .500. (I'll hold off on a discussion of Adam Dunn for the next question.) (Tommy Bennett)
2009-06-03 15:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Yankees need to do to hold onto (I know its early) a playoff spot? Sort through their pile of middle relief arms? Or do they need to make a trade? Anything else they should address? Do you think the improved defense and increased Ks mean they are less likely to crash out of the Division Series, as they did in '02, '05-'07?
(Nick Stone from New York, NY)
Hey Nick! The Yanks certainly need to fortify their bullpen, and in the forthcoming BP/ESPN soup du jour I've advocated they try Phil Hughes in relief once Chien-Ming Wang reclaims his starting job. I'd also like to see them give Mark Melancon another look, but I suspect they probably need to get an experienced arm from outside the organization if Brian Bruney's not going to be back anytime soon.

The improved D and high-K staff are nice, but they're compromised by the homer-iffic tendencies of the staff, particularly the bullpen. Until we see Sabathia, Chamberlain and Burnett all firing on the requisite cylinders, I don't think they've got anything that guarantees them a playoff spot, let alone a ride through to the LCS round.

2009-04-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)In reference to the troubles of Wang, you wrote, "we've seen this before,". According to the blog River Ave. Blues, we have not, in fact, seen this before. "Of the 18 pitchers since 1954, to give up seven or more earned runs in three consecutive starts, Chien-Ming Wang’s totals are by far the worst of the lot." Thoughts? Am I taking you too literally (if so I apologize)?

It's a difference of degree, not kind. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have the first waiver claim in my fantasy league (roto, non keeper, mixed, 11 teams). I was waiting to use it on Matt Wieters when he gets called up, but someone just dropped Chien-Ming Wang. Do I spend it on him instead? I have Joe Mauer on the DL, btw.
(OldBean from Boston)
Unless you're in my league, the answer is no. If you are in my league, yes, please God yes, use your waiver pick on Wang. (Marc Normandin)
