DateQuestionAnswer
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was surprised I haven't heard more from you on the Philly roster construction - they seem tailor made to go with a 10 man staff and give Cholly all kind of platoon options to create some value in the line-up. Is it because their "adds" don't point that way, or are you just afraid to put your hopes in writing and see them dashed again?
(Brecken from Chicago)
I think it's a sign of the times that we ought to be able to celebrate the Phillies dialing down to six relievers this season, and making space for a sixth bench player. Of course, there's the bit about being careful what you wish for--if it's for Brian Bocock's benefit, that's sort of sad for everyone but Bocock. John Mayberry Jr., Jeff Larish... Robb Quinlan? A Larish/Quinlan matched set? See, part of the problem is that beyond notionally carring a RF platoon if Domonic Brown splits the job with Ben Francisco is that they'll have their lefty PH in Ross "Three Bricks Shy of a" Gload, and with that rotation, it isn't like they'll have a ton of PH assignments in the first place. They could use the 25th slot on just about anything, and whoever he is, he won't play much. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Could you give your thoughts on Jeff Larish and his prospects to play another position? Also who did better in the Matt Joyce/Edwin Jackson swap? Thank you!
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
I can't picture Larish playing anywhere but first. He played third in college, but I can't see it translating in the pros. The Joyce/Jackson swap is hard to evaluate, but Jackson is one of those players I'd be scared *&$!-less to trade, with the fear that he's eventually going to put it all together and dominate. (Kevin Goldstein)

(Joltin Joe Orsulak from Virginia)
Not the worst comparison. (Kevin Goldstein)
