DateQuestionAnswer
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, when are you coming out to the city by bay??? How do you think the injuries to Frandsen, Durham and Vizquel will impact the lineup for the first month? Will we have the only team in MLB with a cleanup hitter, Molina, with less than 20hrs' and 80rbi's? Also, when you come, please bring us a major league lineup!
(Paul from San Fran)
Paul, I was just there as part of our book tour. On behalf of my partner in crime at our Alameda event two weeks back at Books Inc., I'd like to thank again the 50-plus people who showed. I speak for both of us when I say it was unfortunate we couldn't have kept it going for another hour or more.

As far as the injuries in the Giants infield, it's horrific. All the Rich Aurilia you can stand, Jose Castillo... Brian Bocock at short? It's the sort of infield Johnny LeMaster belongs in. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-25 13:30:00 (link to chat)Any insight in to why Brandon Phillips scored so poorly in SFR? I'm no scout, but he consistently gets good jumps, moves well, and has very good hands. I just can't accept that Rich Aurilia played a better 2B than Phillips...
(TheRedsMan from Chicago)
Great question. Well, SFR liked him back in 2003 when I had him at +5 :)

So in 2006 I had him at -16 and 2007 he was -9. UZR has him at +3 in 2003 and -5 in 2006 and +3 (half season) in 2007.

Simply put, I don't have any good answers at this point but it's not like UZR sees him as a super defender either.

It's important to keep in mind that SFR for each infielder is affected by the guy(s) playing next to him. This is the case because it partitions ball that make it into the outfield. If Phillips has very poor defenders at first and (less so) at shortstop his numbers will be affected. There are also perhaps positioning issues that come into play that SFR can't address at a detailed level. Still, his numbers for me have been pretty consistently low and so it's kind of a mystery. (Dan Fox)
