BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Some at BP were high on the right side of my infield, but Hill and Hosmer has been a huge disappointment. What are your thoughts on the two of them moving forward? Thanks
(DanDaMan from Sea Cliff)
In redrafts it might be ugly in the second half as well. Long term I still do believe in Hosmer but he's making it hard this year. Aaron Hill might be toast. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any leading indicators or mechanical changes that suggest Aaron Hill is regressing? Or just too soon to panic?
(Danielb2723 from Columbus, Ohio)
I haven't seen anything in the limited game action I've watched of Hill this year. Generally speaking, barring some dramatic physical change, April is always too early to panic. It's possible that at 32-years old, Hill is beginning to regress, but I wouldn't expect him to struggle to this degree all year. (Mark Anderson)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)A.Hill or K.Johnson as a late round grab to fill my 2B spot?
(Jeff from LA)
Aaron Hill, not particularly close for me. I just picked him as my fantasy 2B to target. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=22667 (Ben Carsley)
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jason- here's my situation: I picked up Jhonny Peralta and Kelly Johnson to fill in for Aybar and Aaron Hill. They have both exceeded expectations to the point that I haven't put Aybar back in my lineup and I'm really not sure I'd put in Hill when he returns. Complicating the situation I just managed to pick up Profar as well. My dilemma is that I'm not sure any of them really have fair trade value for me and I don't want to drop them. Your thoughts on the players involved and what you would do with the situation? Thanks
(DanDaMan from SeaCliff)
Aaron Hill hasn't resumed baseball activities yet and Profar doesn't have a clear path to playing time after Kinsler returns. Johnson has been outstanding and I think he could be in line for more playing time out of the 2-hole here eventually because he's that productive with his plate appearances. I'd try to move Profar first, and then Peralta because at least Johnson is also running. (Jason Collette)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Until Hanley gets off the DL, my infield is on the weak side in a 9 team NL only league where all active players must start. Currently I have Prado at 3B, Mark Ellis 2B and Mayberry in a Utility slot. The injury to Aaron Hill opens things up a bit on a tight waiver wire and I'm thinking about adding Eric Chavez at 3B, sliding Prado over to 2B, and waiving either Mayberry or Ellis. Do you have a recommendation?
(warpigs from Austin)
I'd rather be playing Chavez than Ellis. At least he has a little more upside, but watch their usage patterns. If Chavez is going to be playing only 2-3 times a week to get Gregorius/Pennington both in there, go with Ellis. (Bret Sayre)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Welcome, Mike! What are your offensive expectations for Aaron Hill this year, and how about an approximate MLB ETA for Jorge Soler? Thanks!
(Chopper from Indy)
Thanks Chopper. I think Hill is going to slip somewhat this year on the AVG side, though I think the power will be there. A reasonable expectation would be something between his 2011 and his 2012 leaning toward 2012. I think we'll see Soler sometime in mid-2014, at the earliest, though as I said earlier, predicting what prospect timetables is a fool's errand. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I love using BP's Player Forecast Manager as a major tool during a draft. In your opinion give a couple of players that PECOTA is too Bullish on as well as too Bearish.
(rupertoooo from Lorton, VA)
I like Aaron Hill, Maro Estrada, Doug Fister, and Carlos Santana a bit more. Not quite as high on Anthony Rizzo and I'm nervous about Mike Napoli's hips. Like Shakira's, they don't lie except unlike Shakira's, I don't like what they're saying. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Ian! A. Hill just signed an extension, and I wondered what you thought his productivity would resemble this year. Also, what typoe of pitcher do you think Archie Bradley will be in the majors?
(Chopper from Indy)
My pleasure, Chopper. Aaron Hill is one of those guys who absolutely fascinates me. His career WAP(P) numbers are crazy: he's put up 4.5, 5.2, and 5.9 WARP in various seasons, but he's also posted -2.0 WARP. So I would expect some pretty dramatic regression this year, and the BP computer seems to agree with me: we've got him at .262 TAv and 2.7 WARP for 2013.

I'm a HUGE Archie Bradley fan. I've yet to see him in person, but I hope that changes this season -- I assume he'll be assigned to Visalia. (Ian Miller)
2012-12-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ian- I know predicting numbers can be dangerous or foolish, but what do you think Profar's numbers could be annually and do you think Aaron Hill will replicate his numbers in 2013 from this year? Thank you.
(Chopper from Indy)
Lordy, I am in no position to project Profar's performance. He's 19 and CRAZY talented. We usually assume that players reach their physical peaks at around 27, so projecting Profar's ceiling seems to me a fool's errand. Can we just say he's going to be awesome for a long time? I'm willing to go on record with that statement.

I don't think Aaron Hill gets close to his 2012 production in '13. His career numbers are wacky -- I guess I'd treat him like a 3-win player? Maybe? Helluva ballplayer in any case, and massively underrated. (Ian Miller)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you yet see a 2B that shows a potential profit in a 15 tm 5x5 mixed auction league, given mock drafts so far? Who are your targets there?
(laramie from washington)
Kelly Johnson and Aaron Hill seem to be going very cheaply in mocks. (Derek Carty)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have Brett Lawrie at 2B/3B eligible this season. Needs 5 games to gain eligibility at a position for both this year and next. A) has he played 5 games at 2B this year? and B) does he somehow get enough games at either 2B or 3B going forward (next season and beyond) to keep either of those eligibilities?
(Jacob Smith from Huntsville, AL)
3B for sure. He hasn't played 2B yet this year and probably won't unless, and only **maybe** if, Aaron Hill gets injured again. Even that is extremely doubtful as it's unlikely they'd want to move a rookie around the diamond instead of letting him stay at the position they're trying to get him comfortable at. Don't count on him for 2B next year. (Derek Carty)
2011-04-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What has happened to Aaron Hill and is there any chance he will justify having extensions exercised?
(dtwhite from Toronto)
Sure he can -- there's value in getting that kind of power production from a second baseman, and his BABIP can't stay as low as it was last year, can it?

Sorry for the slow answers ... my DSL seems to be uncooperative this afternoon ... (Ken Funck)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Aaron Hill had the worst BABIP last year, good buy low candidate? Just traded for him as a back up to Cano and to use for trade bait later in the season. Decent plan or sheer folly sir?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
I think Craig Brown did a great job with Hill back in October, and he links to my summer piece on him there as well. He needs to reinvent his swing in order to become valuable again, so he's a good guy to stash around just in case, but not as Plan A. (Marc Normandin)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Need a 2nd opinion on this trade: Cliff Lee, Nick Swisher, Hank Conger for David Price, Aaron Hill and Matt Wieters.
(Jquinton82 from NY)
I'm just going to use this as an example. People -- I have no problem evaluating fantasy trades, but you need to tell me how your team is set up, what type of league it is, etc. Otherwise I have no idea. All trades need context to be properly valued. (Eric Seidman)
2010-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)So Aaron Hill has had a strange year. 25 home runs, but a negative VORP. What do you see in Aaron's future when you peer into your crystal ball?
(Matt from Avoiding studying at all costs)
All I see when I peer into my crystal ball is the flaming eye of Sauron. I think someone may have misplaced a palantir.

I'm cautiously bullish on Hill. He may have gotten a little flyball-happy after the power outburst last season, but clearly he's still capable of hitting the ball hard. Maybe he's a mechanical adjustment away, though if he's made any adjustments in September, they've done the opposite of helping.

Speaking of Sauron, did Visine ever do a commercial where instead of hurling the One Ring into the fiery heart of Mount Doom, the Fellowship brings him some eyedrops, bringing peace to Middle Earth in a non-violent way? If they didn't, they should have? Sometimes I think I'm a regular Don Draper. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's wrong with Aaron Hill this season?
(Estee from Ireland)
I just so happened to write about that this morning: Ask and you shall receive.

I'm thinking of calling it quits in 30 minutes, folks. The fingers, they want to stay, but my stomach disagrees with their sentiment. (Marc Normandin)
2010-05-11 16:30:00 (link to chat)So far it has been a rough fantasy season for me. I have had 5 players hit the DL already (Miguel Montero, Aaron Hill, Yunel Escobar, Carlos Beltran and Brad Hawpe). So I am playing with a lot of replacement level players. My main question is, should I keep Gordon Beckham and Jason Kubel? They have been in tremendous slumps. and if so, who should I replace them with? Is Ryan Ludwick a better option in the outfield? Please help.
(csatte1 from Baltimore, MD)
Gordon Beckham really seems like a young hitter who is adjusting. His BABIP is low because if too many grounders and pop-ups, but he should work that out. Jason Kubel just isn't hitting the ball as hard as last year. Fewer balls hit to the outfield, fewer HR. He's probably working out kinks in his swing, but I can't imagine he's as valuable as Beckham, even though I don't do fantasy baseball so I don't really know league scarcity that well. Ryan Ludwick seems he's just a little less patient hitter with maybe a little more power. Not sure how that plays in here. I guess Ludwick is better especially with Kubel needing to work out some kinks. (Matt Swartz)
2010-05-11 16:30:00 (link to chat)So, I have Chone Figgins, Hunter Pence, Aaron Hill, and Edwin Jackson on my fantasy team. My question: shouldn't I expect big bounce backs from everyone here or did I just select duds?
(Nasi Goreng from SE Asia)
Chone Figgins-- His K-rate has shot up this year. The BABIP drop is small enough and it looks likely to fix itself, but the K-rate is just so high that he's not going to be effective when he's striking out like a power hitter. Even BABIP Superstars need to be make contact to keep their job-- you don't commit $45MM to Fred Lewis. Maybe a new hitting coach helps?

Aaron Hill-- His BABIP is .210 because he's not hitting line dirves-- it seems related to him swinging at too many pitches out of the strike zone. Before he hit 32 HR, pitchers would challenge him more. Now he needs to be more patient.

Hunter Pence-- he isn't swinging any more often than he used to, but he can't seem to tell a ball from a strike anymore. Worse, he's actually making contact with those bad pitches and isn't hitting them hard.

Edwin Jackson is an average pitcher. He's not as good his 2009 or as bad as his early 2010. (Matt Swartz)
2010-03-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Since we will probably be out of contention pretty early this year, which of my teammates will be sold off? I already told my boy Aaron Hill that if he starts out well he's as good as gone... How about me? Should I look into buying or a short term rental?
(Adam Lind from Toronto)
Hate to break it to you, but neither of you are going anywhere. You haven't even hit arbitration yet, and Hill is signed through 2014 at a pretty reasonable price. The guys most likely to be shipped out are Downs, Frasor, and Overbay, not necessarily in that order. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Aaron Hill this season - will the offensive surge continue?
(Stevealicious from Guelph, ONT)
I don't think there's any way he hits 36 home runs again, but I think if he retains even 75% of that power, he's a good player. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-12-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you expect Ben Zobrist or Aaron Hill to duplicate their performances in 2010? Between those two and Gordon Beckham's move to 2B, how much more or less valuable is a premiere second baseman next year?
(Ethan from New York, NY)
I actually like Ben Zobrist a lot. He hit pretty well in 2008 too, so it's nice to see him keep things going this past season. I haven't looked at Hill in detail yet (second base is this week's ranking redux though, so you won't have to wait long), but if the three of those players continue to hit, then yes, second base has a lot more worthwhile options that might add some depth to the rankings. (Marc Normandin)
2009-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Help, I'm a Jays fan. Ryan's contract, eaten. Halladay on the block. Entire starting rotation on DL. What are three good reasons I shouldn't permanently renounce baseball for lacrosse?
(jerjapan from Toronto)
1. Cito Gaston (who should have never been let go). 2. Aaron Hill's amazing comeback (underreported in the U.S.), 3. Adam Lind emerging as an offensive force. (John Perrotto)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)One subject that nearly everone has been silent about, sort of like the unspoken rule about not mentioning a no-hitter in progress, is AARON HILL. And yes the capitals are warranted by now no?
(WilliamWilde from Boston, MA)
Hill's the guy off to a hot start in the Jays' lineup worth getting excited about, not simply because of the back story of coming back from his concussion, but because he looked good before the injury, and we can get excited about what he might grow up to be. (Insert standard observations that Lyle Overbay and Marco Scutaro will go back to being Lyle Overbay and Marco Scutaro here.) (Christina Kahrl)
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina my friend read me my heroscope about a month ago and it said I will recieve very good news on Feb. 10th. I haven't got any yet. Could you tell me something awesome about the Jays?
(dogtothedog from Toronto)
You're still tied for first place? Seriously, though, there are players to look forward to coming into view. J.P. Arencibia and Travis Snider, certainly, maybe Brett Cecil and Ricky Romero... we can all hope Aaron Hill's good to go, right, and there's nothing that say he can't right now this instant... OK, I'm stretching here. A little less than eight hours to go, maybe it's something non-baseball you're supposed to hear. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will - how do you go about grading recovery potential from a concussion (or similar) injury? What separated Corey Koskie from Ryan Church? How does Aaron Hill look heading into 2009? Thanks
(rawagman from Toronto)
I don't. I'm no doctor and it's a mystery to them why these go the ways they do. There's so many unknowns here. Haven't heard anything on Hill. (Will Carroll)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)I've sent this in a couple chats in a row, but UTK has been crickets regarding Aaron Hill. Have you heard anything about his progress? I read that he's taking fielding drills again. What are your thoughts on how Toronto is handling this? I'd think they are doing the right thing by being so cautious.
(Chadale from Toronto)
Couple questions on Hill and Ryan Church, so I'll take on both. There's not much to say on Hill since everything's going slow and until he really starts up the baseball activities, there's nothing for me to add. Same with Church, though there are far more questions (from experts, not from me) on how this was handled. Concussions have no timeline, so don't take my passing on them for lack of interest, but lack of value add. (Will Carroll)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Mark Ellis is overdue for a Gold Glove--is this the year he wins one?
(dwiest12 from Vienna VA)
Man, was he jobbed last year or what? I certainly hope so, but if he's dealt to the National League, his chances diminish considerably. Even if he sticks around in Oakland, guys like Aaron Hill are starting to get some well-deserved recognition. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-15 14:30:00 (link to chat)Where would the Rays middle infield rank right now in the AL East?
(RJ from Beyond the Boxscore)
Hey there R.J., thanks for stopping by. Gosh, the AL East middle infields stink. I didn't realize it until now. Boston has half of a good MI in Pedroia, and Baltimore the same with Brian Roberts. Aaron Hill is no great shakes, so assuming that Bartlett hits average for his position while fielding a fine shortstop and Iwamura does the same, they are probably second best. That's kind of scary, no offense. (Marc Normandin)
