BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)A team of Elliot Johnson's versus a team of Coconut Crabs. Winner takes over the commonwealth...who you got?
(Chilly Butler from Guam)
The crabs. No sane human being is beating the crabs. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Here's a scenario I've seen before: Chris Getz has a .250 OBP, Elliot Johnson .240. Johnny Giavotella is slashing .326/.396/.489. What gives? And if the Royals don't want him, can my team have him?
(Dan from NYC)
I somewhat share your frustration, but I've cooled on Giavotella over the last year. He's had a legit shot to grab the Royals' 2B job in spring training each of the last two years, and he hasn't been able to do it with very iffy performances in the spring. He's now in his third year of raking at Triple-A, but he didn't really perform in 50-plus games in MLB last season. I do think he deserves more of a shot given how weak KC is at the position, but I'm less confident on him being a passable everyday 2B now. With that said, it is a weird situation. You'd think he would've gotten more of a chance by now. (Jason Cole)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please, please, please tell me that the Rays will remove Reid Brignac, Elliot Johnson and possibly Sean Rodriguez for better Utility IFers.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Is Geoff Blum still available? And on that note, I must take my leave. (Geoff Young)
2012-07-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)Lost Pedroia, is Punto the best pickup or should I be targeting others?
(tylerk from Nebrask)
I'd rather target Elliot Johnson than Punto if he were available. (Jason Collette)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)While we're on the topic, Alex Gonzalez (healthy) or Elliot Johnson?
(Matt from Madison)
Gonzalez. Heck, Alex S. Gonzalez. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-08-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of career do you see Matt Joyce having? Do you think at his peak he can put up similar numbers (incl. OBP) as JD Drew?
(DS from LA)
He will never be the defender Drew is/was, but the rest of that comp works for me. Joyce has been given small pockets of chances against lefties but the fact he has to sit against lefties at times for a well-below replacement level guy like Elliot Johnson makes no sense. The Rays are not contending right now so I do not see why the club does not put Joyce out there as much as possible and let him sink or swim against lefties because it is still better than what an org soldier like Johnson would do. An outside theory floated by my colleague at DRaysBay, Heath Baywood, is moving Joyce to first base if the team cannot find a FA solution this off-season or cannot trade for someone. (Jason Collette)
2008-03-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have a problem with Elliot Johnson's collision with Cervelli? Was it a dirty play or just baseball?
(Tommy from (OPS,FL))
Just baseball. I can say that these games don't mean anything, and they don't, but if you're Elliot Johnson, you're trying to impress someone. And it's hard to turn it on and off.

As with the winter meetings, spring training's ratio of newsgatherers to newsmakers is out of control, so everything with any kind of potential gets blown into a thing. (Joe Sheehan)
