2008-09-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)Joe, I've heard that back in 2002, after Frankie Rodriguez joined the Angels post-Sept 1, the team only gave him a token WS share, something like $5K - despite his being one of their most valuable players in that run. I'm wondering if you've heard this, and, if true, how it might impact the likelihood of him resigning this offseason
(cjenks from SF)
I have no idea if it is true, and I hesitate to even put it out there. I will say this: everyone involved in covering the decisions players make on where they'll choose to play vastly underestimates the amount of information they don't have, and weights too heavily the information we do. It's an intensely personal decision in most cases, and we cannot realistically anticipate what factors among the many in play will mean the most to any individual. We can assign probabilities, but our accuracy in this area will always be lousy. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will, Could you refresh us as to why you consider Felix's mechanics to be so bad? I know the Mariners handle him very carefully, but there have been no significant injuries that I'm aware of. Encouraging, no?
(Dr. Mysterio from Chicago)
Wha? Wha? The elbow problems aren't "significant" to you? Hernandez's mechanics are unbelieveably bad. Poor balance, poor pronation, throws his hips open, and is inconsistent. He's been better this year, which I think is a function of his improved physical condition, but the balance -- seeing his head throw to the side and his fall to first base -- is Mitch Williams - level bad. The Mariners have handled him well, but unless he's someone like Frankie Rodriguez, who can just pitch through bad mechanics season after season, he's going to have problems. That said, I wouldn't change him. He's too good when on. (Will Carroll)
