BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-02-16 11:00:00 (link to chat)Any identifiable ways that Tampa's offseason was different than you think it would have been under Friedman?
(Joe from Brooklyn)
Seemed like business as usual for the most part. I guess two deals stand out for me: 1) Maddon leaving, which was a direct result of Friedman's departure, and 2) the Joel Peralta trade. Seeing as how Friedman dealt two young arms for Peralta, I'd venture to guess he would've kept him in town had he stayed. Friedman is a smart guy.

Otherwise I don't think any of Tampa Bay's offseason moves strayed far from what they always do. In fact, I would say Friedman's last offseason here was weirder than this one, since he locked up a bunch of veteran types to multi-year deals. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)You need to put together a team of MLB astronauts for a hypothetical space mission to save the world. Who's the crew? Who's the captain?
(Slick Vaughn from Popeyes)
Been thinking about this one for an hour now. I'd go: Joel Peralta as the captain (has guts and leadership abilities), Tim Collins (to fit into small places), Andrew Cashner (to fit into large places; plus stereotypical Texan), and Nyjer Morgan (familiarity with the terrain). (R.J. Anderson)
2012-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Looking through the FA class of RP and SP, who are this year's Fernando Rodney, Hiroki Kuroda and Wei-Yun Chen?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Projecting relievers is a fool's errand, given the sample sizes involved and the variation in reliever usage from year to year. But I'm a fool, so allow me to take a stab at it. A few names that stand out as potential bargains are Jason Grilli, Joel Peralta, and Octavio Dotel - Dotel might be the Julio Franco of this generations relief pitchers.

On the jukebox: Guns N' Roses, "My Michelle" (Doug Thorburn)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which set up man is most likely to assume closing duties in 2012? Scott Downs (Walden-shaky performance) Joel Peralta (Farny-shaky elbow) Joaquin Benoit (Valverde-shaky law of averages)
(PepeShady from StPaul)
I'd bank on Benoit, because he's one with the true closer stuff, and yeah, I don't trust Valverde. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-03-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's closing for the Rays? Any chance Joel Peralta wins that job?
(Ivan from Dallas)
Cory Schwartz in this relative space said so yesterday. Farnsworth seems like the favorite. Jason Gray thinks Jake McGee will get saves.

Alright gentlemen, time for the thunder round. This is just like the lightning round, in that you guys ask quick-hit questions, only the time it takes me to respond will determine how far away from you I am. Also, I will type in all caps to give that authentic thundery effect. (Jeremy Greenhouse)
2011-03-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the uncertainties in the Rays bullpen, who is your darkhorse candidate to get the majority of save opportunities this year? JP Howell or Jake McGee?
(rodmalloy from San Francisco)
Neither. My money is on Joel Peralta, who became a dominant pitcher last season after adding a split-finger fastball to his repertoire, which enabled him to handle lefties much better than he had in the past. It's probably a three-way race between him, Farnsworth and McGee right now, but the Rays are a progressive organization and I think the right environment for him to win the job. (Cory Schwartz)
2011-03-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Corey, Which pitching and hitting players do you find to be the breakout player that no one has heard of?
(Will from Kentucky)
I'm pushing in my chips with Joel Peralta this year. On the hitting side, I could see Roger Bernadina surprising some people this year. (Cory Schwartz)
