2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)The asking of the Gordon question makes me want to ask about Andy LaRoche. Is he going to take the next step forward with the bat and do you think he'll be able to make the move to 2b, or be traded when Alvarez is brought up?
(Mark from N.Y.)
I don't think LaRoche to second base is a realistic outcome. It's hard to know what's going to happen here, because LaRoche really looked like something special through his age-22 season, and even his age-23 season wasn't cause for alarm. Given that he's now heading into his age-26 season, I still haven't given up, but he's fallen into that David Bell/lesser Boone range of guys who are employable, but not necessarily much more than that. I figure it's Alvarez who may have to head to first base if they don't move LaRoche, but it's up to LaRoche's hitting as to whether or not that expectation stands up. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)FYI, next couple of HOF classes are thin. Best candidates for 2011 are Bagwell, Raffy Palmeiro (zero shot), Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Larry Walker. Best candidates for 2012 are Bernie Williams, Tim Salmon and....I dunno, Carl Everett? Rick Helling?
(El Angelo from elangelo@gmail.com)
The 2012 class is thinner than prison gruel. Honestly there aren't five guys among this lot who would get more than a single paragraph out of me in the JAWS series:

Edgardo Alfonzo, Pedro Astacio, David Bell, Jeromy Burnitz, Vinny Castilla, Scott Erickson, Carl Everett, Jeff Fassero, Alex S. Gonzalez, Danny Graves, Rick Helling, Dustin Hermanson, Jose Hernandez, Brian Jordan, Matt Lawton, Javy Lopez, Bill Mueller, Terry Mulholland, Jeff Nelson, Phil Nevin, Brad Radke, Joe Randa, Tim Salmon, Ruben Sierra, Jose Vizcaino, Bernie Williams, Eric Young (Jay Jaffe)
