BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Ricky Nolasco third in the rotation on a top-15 team, or is that being generous?
(Joe Mielenhausen from Minnesota)
Moar Nolasco! That's his ceiling. He's more durable and predictable than he is truly good. He's a maybe sort of No. 5 fantasy guy for next year in deeper mixed leagues. (Ben Carsley)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)What SPs do you like to break-out in 2014?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Hmm. Just spit-balling, but I'll go with Corey Luebke, Felix Doubront, Martin Perez, Jacob Turner, Zach Lee and Ricky Nolasco as some guys who will outperform their draft slots. (Ben Carsley)
2013-07-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do my Giants need to do to get back into contention? Our pitching is bleeding pretty badly but I don't think Ricky Nolasco is going to solve our problems. Thanks for the chat!
(Joe from San Fran)
I've been baffled by this team all year, and the problem as I've said before is that they're in need of multiple upgrades. While I still expect Cain to be fine, Vogelsong isn't trust-worthy to me right now when healthy, Lincecum isn't the same, Zito is Zito and Kickham/assorted SP6 doesn't seem to be the answer.

They clearly need something in the rotation, but chasing 2013 too hard sets them up for some potential problems down the road given the lengths they went to in order to keep the band together and a farm system that's not regarded as wonderful. (Zachary Levine)
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Ricky Nolasco is back to being fantasy relevant?
(nubber from tx)
I've been one of the 3 guys who has never quit his fantasy fan club. I would add him now before the Marlins trade him to a contending team where his run support should pick up. (Jason Collette)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for chat Paul, can't wait for my SP guide.....so here is a backend rotation Q: who do you like more, Andy Pettitte or Ricky Nolasco?
(Jim from Seattle)
No prob, Jim. Thanks for joining! I'd take a shot on Pettitte. Show some nice stuff in his short 75 IP sample last year, but if it doesn't work out there'll be plenty of Nolascos on the wire. (Paul Sporer)
2012-04-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Enough of Cuba talk...give me some reason to believe Ricky Nolasco will be my stud when Josh Johnson seems falling apart, so that I don't have to drink my mind out when I can't manage my team from dugout.
(Not Ozzie from Certainly not Miami)
Sorry Ozzie, but I'm not a Nolasco-as-a-secret-stud believer. I debated him with Jason Collette this off-season (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=15550) and did some back-of-the-envelope math to show why I'm not a big fan. Peripherals are always great, but we're approaching a pretty large sample telling us that his "luck indicators" might not be so unlucky. I could certainly be proven wrong, but I wouldn't bank on him being an ace. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Cory, the list of 12 is up (http://fantasy411.mlblogs.com/ for those not in the know... shame on you!)and perennial underperformer Brandon Morrow is up there. What's your opinion on guys that consistently underperform their xFIP? Is Ricky Nolasco an anonomly or is there some skill defecit we're missing?
(mattseward from Cardiff, UK)
This is a good area where "scouting" and observation can complement stats and analytics. My guess is that guys like this struggle with runners on base, so even though they have good pure stuff (as shown in the K/BB rates), they're more susceptible to big innings. This is certainly true of Nolasco... take out his four worst starts last year and he has what, a 3.25 ERA? On the other hand, you have guys like Matt Cain who consistently outperform their xFIP, xERA, whatever... so after 5-6 years of that we must conclude there is some skill at work there that guys like Nolasco and Morrow haven't developed yet. (Cory Schwartz)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you were the Padres or Mariners, wouldn't you be doing whatever it takes to pry Ricky Nolasco from Florida?
(JoshEngleman from Wilmington, NC)
Mariners, yes, absolutely. Padres, no, but for a very specific reason. Nolasco has four years of arbitration, and is entering his third year in 2011. He made $3.75M in 2010, and that number is going to nearly double before he is a free agent. That's a lot of coin for the Padres to be handing out to someone who will be there for two years before he bolts. (Marc Normandin)
2010-09-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Good morning hombre- I'm a big Marlins fan. What would you do in the offseason to put this team into the playoffs? I miss the glory days of 2003 and watching them play this year has been killer. I'm dying for another shot at a ring. Any thoughts to help appease my pain?
(Angel Batista from Miami, Florida)
I'm bullish on the Marlins, Detective Batista. Anibal Sanchez has taken a big step forward. Clay Hensley and Leo Nunez have been great out of the bullpen. Josh Johnson and Ricky Nolasco are great. They'll have a healthy Coghlan back. There is a lot to like. Starting Wes Helms more than once a year isn't really that wise, and it's time to give up on the Andrew Miller experiment, but there is no reason they couldn't go 87-75 next season and try to sneak into a playoff spot. (Eric Seidman)
2010-07-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Essay question. Ricky Nolasco is back. Confirm or deny this statement, and support your conclusion with evidence using some of those advanced metrics we love.
(BR from NYC)
I don't think this is the right place for an essay-length answer, but 28 strikeouts in 21 innings over his last three starts is a great sign, especially since he hasn't been walking anyone all season. If you'd like an actual essay-length response, email Eric Seidman. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat..and thanks for more fantasy content. Based on the drafts that you are participating in or seeing, can you give us a couple names that are either going too high or too low in your opinion?
(Ben F. from California)
No problem! I'm very excited to have all of the extra authors on board. Craig Brown is debuting tomorrow, and I hope all of the Heater guys are starting up next week.

I've only done auction so far, so I don't have a good answer for that. But I can tell you that Ricky Nolasco has not been a bargain, at least in my leagues. I'm sure he still is in many though. (Marc Normandin)
2009-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)I told my league when we finished drafting that Ricky Nolasco was the steal of the draft. Well to say the least I have been made fun of quite a bit. Can he salvage his season and become close to the player I was expecting when I took him?
(JFerg from MD)
Nolasco's driving me nuts, because his peripherals are fine, but he can't strand a baserunner to save his life. I'm hoping things even out, because having this much bad luck for a full year would suck. (Marc Normandin)
2008-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marlins outlook next year and the year after?
(james from bk)
If they can keep the rotation healthy for once, this is a team that can do some serious damage. Ricky Nolasco is true ace material, and Josh Johnson's pretty damn good himself. If Anibal Sanchez can at least settle in as a #3, the rotation will be an improvement on this year's mess, one that started with Mark Hendrickson involved. Hanley Ramirez improved on his defense, making him even more valuable, and is one of the top players in the game--possibly #2 in overall production next to the peerless Albert Pujols. I like them more for 2009 than I did for 2008, given the problems and injuries in their rotation. That's the key to the whole team. as their lineup is good enough to be carried by a great set of starters. (Marc Normandin)
2008-09-23 13:30:00 (link to chat)How much are you concerned with Ricky Nolasco's innings jump?
(bossfan101 from Gresham, OR)
He's 25, so not that much. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-08-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ricky Nolasco? Has he figured something out? Could we possibly be watching someone become an ace? or small sample size?
(Nick from NYC)
He's got my attention, that's for sure. I'm thinking his walking one per nine is a tad on the unrealistic side, but even if that jumps back up a bit, he's still posting some impressive peripherals.

I really wanted him in my fantasy league before anyone else noticed, but I was too slow. (Marc Normandin)
