BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)How can I break this bizarre addiction to Sergio Mitre? is there a 12-step program for unhealthy co-dependencies between baseball managers and bad relief pitchers? And, please tell me, why didn't I pull AJ Burnett before he melted down the other night?
(Joe Girardi from Bronx, NY)
Joe seems to veer between the manic "Coffee Joe" and passive "Torre, Joe" aspects of his personality. On the whole I'll take him, but quite often his choices are difficult to fathom. (Steven Goldman)
2011-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steve, over/under 8 starts for Sergio Mitre next year? Please say under.
(thenamestsam from Brooklyn)
If the Yankees are serious about winning, under, but they distrust their own young pitchers so much that anything is possible. That said, I would remind you (and me) that pitchers are random enough that they can do the unexpected in 15 or 20 starts and put together a good year. All it takes is good defensive support. (Steven Goldman)
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Giradi, Kerry Wood, Sergio Mitre. The yankees were doomed from the start. It takes more than 200 million to overcome the ex-cub factor!
(Mike Royko from Beyond)
Well, Kerry Wood has been excellent for the Yankees, but more seriously, I was confused at the start about putting both Mitre and Dustin Moseley on the roster. It's a bit like a military staff meeting before a big battle, and the chief of ordinance says, "Well, we've equipped everyone with guns, knives, hand grenades... We've got cannons, we've got shells..." and the general-in-chief says, "Be sure to pack the white flags." Why do you need two blow-out pitchers in a series in which you can never stop playing for a comeback. You can spare the staff in the regular season, but if you do it in the postseason, you're going to GO HOME. I just don't get it. I've been on about this at the Pinstriped Bible for three weeks now. (Steven Goldman)
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)One tiny upside to Tex's hamstring injury - Cano is (finally) hitting 3rd. Of all the things we could analyze and critique Girardi about, is batting order a waste of time? To whit - even with a lefty on the mound, I think I would hit Granderson second today, not Swisher, so as to put the Yanks' 3 best postseason hitters so far in the position to get as many plate appearances as possible. Or are talking about a couple tenths of a run at most, and so why worry - especially when there's Coffee Joe and his crazy bullpen of doom to fear?
(Shaun P. from Medway, MA)
Howdy, Shaun. How's the weather in Medway? It's a small thing in the context of one game. That said, there would probably be some emotional value in having a big first inning considering how things have gone the last couple of days, so maybe there's some value in trying to game your way to an early explosion. I do like Swisher second, though, because though he walked less this year, he still gets high pitch counts, and having him up early and often helps wear a starter down... for what it's worth. I mean, if you're going to bring Sergio Mitre in anyway, what's the point? Imagine if in "Star Wars," during the Death Star battle, the imperial functionary goes up to Peter Cushing and says, "Sir, we've evaluated their attack and it does have a small chance of succeeding. Should we evacuate?" and Cushing replied, "What? Evacuate in our moment of triumph? HELL YEAH! Gangway!" (Steven Goldman)
2010-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yankees fans know what they're getting in Sergio Mitre (the equivalent of a swingman for a non-contending team). Other than experience, is he really a better option than trying out Ivan Nova or even Hector Noesi?
(Ethan from NYC)
What the Yankees need to do is lock in wins. Mitre, for all of his faults, has a narrower band of projected performance than almost any minor league pitcher would. From that standpoint, I think the decision makes sense. They can wait Pettitte's absence out. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Steven - it is possible the Bill James thing is generational? I read your intro and knew exactly what you were talking about, but I also remember when I couldn't find any new Bill James books in the bookstore every spring. Someone born in, say, 1988, probably doesn't. As for baseball - Mo-Marte-Park-Robertson-Joba/Hughes are set; if Girardi insists on a second lefty (I hope not), how do the Yanks fit in both Aceves and Gaudin? It'd be silly to let Gaudin go, or send Aceves to Scranton, right?
(Shaun P. from Medway, MA)
I think you might be right about the BJ thing, Shaun. That's one of the reasons I began that section by saying, "When I was growing up..." Today you can look at Amazon and see a book's release date. Back then, you had to almost literally haunt the bookstore asking anyone who happened by, "Is it out? Is it out?" Unless you were Bill's next door neighbor or something you really had no idea. This was true of all the preseason stuff. There was this feeling of thwarted anticipation that I was trying to get at, a vacuum that the founders wanted to fill. That's all I meant. Thanks for putting it that way.

I feel like you do about Gaudin and Aceves. Both, especially "Ace," have better current and long-term upsides than Park. It's either one lefty or someone's gotta go. And don't forget, they still have Sergio Mitre in the mix for some reason, so he could squeeze someone out, too. I wouldn't normally have a problem with one lefty, btw, but that means Marte is going to end up pitching every day and given his recent fragility he seems unlikely to handle it. (Steven Goldman)
2009-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Sergio Mitre the pitching equivalent of Cody Ransom? Why won't the Yankees just switch Joba and Hughes, to maintain the innings limits on both?
(Eli from Brooklyn)
Hi, Eli. As a 28-year-old sinker guy, Mitre actually has a lot more value than Ransom given that he's younger and these grounder guys seem to be better in their 30s than in their 20s. That said, it's clear that his time is not now, if it's ever going to come, and the Yankees are taking their postseason spot for granted by pitching him. The Joba/Hughes thing is more complicated, because there's just not that much time left in the season to stretch out Hughes. Remember how long it took before they were ready to start Chamberlain last year. It was endless. Hughes has also been so effective out of the pen that you risk messing with something that's really working right now. (Steven Goldman)
2009-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Try and sell me on the Sergio Mitre experience.
(Joel from GA)
He has a better chance of joining a reunion than the lead guitarist of the Jimi Hendrix Experience?

Meanwhile, my wife just handed me some coffee -- in a Mahoning Valley Scrappers mug! Great folks there in the office, and press box, of Cleveland's short-season affiliate. (David Laurila)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Think Sergio Mitre will be any good for the Yankees?
(Steve from NY)
No. Aceves is better, and Hughes is the right answer. This team is ungodly frustrating in its inability to answer questions correctly. (Joe Sheehan)

The Yankees have Dustin Moseley and Sergio Mitre suited up, for chrissakes. (Christina Kahrl)
