BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-05-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you feel about Dan Johnson's time spent at the big league level? Is he a career AAAA player, or would you consider yourself a 'Johnson guy'?
(Hatfield from Moms basement)
It's difficult to say. My pet theory on Johnson right now is that his skill set just plays better at Triple-A. Maybe because he can work himself into better counts there against weaker pitchers and then use what power he has to flick a few balls over the fences. Maybe he just didn't get a long enough leash this year--he has had success in the majors before. I don't know. In the end, there is usually a reason a player isn't in the majors despite tearing up the minors. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-04-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tampa Bay -- DOA?
(Mike from Cleveland)
The difference between the Rays and the Red Sox is that the loss of Longoria could be a crippling blow. Not only is he by far their best hitter, but putting Sean Rodriguez into a platoon at third base deprives Joe Maddon of the flexibility which his multi-position arrangement involving Ben Zobrist produces. Plus I was never sold on the idea that Dan Johnson is a real solution at first base. They're not dead yet, but the Rays are in worse shape than the Sox as far as the big picture goes. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-08-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Joe, what are your thoughts on Gaston letting Morrow throw 137 pitches in his gem of a ballgame yesterday? Personally, I think the Jays have done a great job shielding their young pitchers from overwork and that Cito managed the situation perfectly.
(jerjapan from Toronto)
I didn't like leaving him in to face Dan Johnson after the no-hitter was lost. As I saw it, Morrow had lost his fastball command in the ninth inning, while retaining his sick breaking ball. The loss of command on the FB, rather than the pitch count, is why I would have lifted him after the first hit. I don't see any way Morrow, at that moment, gave the Jays the best chance to win the game, and I see no value in "completing the game" when some of the best starters in baseball throw 0-2 CGs a year. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Maybe Barton can join Dan Johnson in Japan.
(Joe from LA)
I don't know if the Japanese would have him. Unless he goes back to wearing the mohawk and that engenders some sort of Brad Lesley-like fascination in Barton over there. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I the only one glad to see Dan Johnson getting some action?
(mattidell from SF, CA)
Not at all. Baseball needs more redheads, although technically I guess he's more reddish-blonde. Seriously, though, his bat can play in the right place in the right role, and like guys like Hinske or even Russell Branyan, it's about finding the right spot. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance the A's give Dan Johnson another shot if Daric Barton needs some time in AAA to sort out his swing? Hannahan at first base seems wrong somehow.
(dwiest12 from NoVa)
None, because Johnson's a Durham Bull, and hitting .286/.405/.500 in ~240 PA. Hannahan at first gives me Bruce Bochte flashbacks. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are the odds Dan Johnson sticks with the A's out of ST?
(dwiest12 from Vienna VA)
It would have to seem like a dodgy proposition, wouldn't it? Daric Barton's also a lefty, and also only plays first, and the roster's got a full-time DH in Jack Cust, which bites into any possibility of keeping two like players. Add in the fact that Johnson's out of options, and the stakes get higher still, because if he doesn't win the job, he's going to have to go through waivers. (Christina Kahrl)

2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day OneThat's the fun thing with a lot of the postseason rosters. Jason Repko? Dan Johnson? Frenchy? Rocco? Matt Treanor on the bench, when the Rangers were supposed to be the young catching-enabled ballclub? It's a funny old world. The Yankees have Dustin Moseley and Sergio Mitre suited up, for chrissakes. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day Onecarligula (Oakland): Rocco Baldelli? Really? I suppose he's a guy you can root for, but... the Rays don't have anyone else to DH?

I'm about to toss up a post on Unfiltered on the six rosters in play today, but yeah, this is a surprise. I'm glad to see Dan Johnson make the cut, but the Rays certainly did some interesting things. (Christina Kahrl)
