DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, who are the pitchers coming onto the ballot next year? I've heard that there's going to be a wave which will cut into Blyleven's vote count. Is that true? Also, do you see the Vets Committee enshrining Lou and Tram after Tram drops off the ballot (this seems, rather unfortunately, inevitible).
(David from Huntersville NC)
Pitchers eligible for next year's ballot include Kevin Brown, John Franco, Al Leiter, Wilson Alvarez, Ugueth Urbina, Ismael Valdez, Paul Quantrill, Cal Eldred, Kirk Rueter and Steve Reed. I don't see any of them cutting into anybody's support, and other than the first three, I don't see any of them even getting through the nomination stage. Though if Mike Jackson can... (Jay Jaffe)
2008-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has there ever been a healthy Canadian pitcher? I'm looking at Harden, Gagne, Dempster, Bedard, Jeff Zimmerman, Loewen, Shawn Hill, Scott Mathieson. About the only counterpoint would be Paul Quantrill. Maybe the Mariners should be dealing Aumont before it's too late.
(paulbellows from Calgary)
There's something here and I'd question a lot of northern pitchers as well. If a pitcher does not throw enough when the growth plates are open, he won't get the proper humeral retroversion. Without it, he can't pitch at a major league level. My guess is that it's harder to get enough throwing done when it's cold, but there's a lot of research being done on this now. (Will Carroll)
