DateQuestionAnswer
2011-07-21 16:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat, Jason. Please rank the folowing SPs for the rest of the season (head-to-head, standard 5x5 cats): Colby Lewis, Jeff Niemann, Carlos Carrasco, and Josh Collmenter.
(Dennis from LA)
Lewis, Carrasco, Niemann, Collmenter (can't stay this lucky) (Jason Collette)
2011-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think the Indians, and to a lesser extent the Pirates, have a good chance to be divisional contenders next year as well?
(bigcity from NY)
Based on the divisions they're in: definitely. Indians still need another SP or two to take another step forward, but I like where they're at as a unit. Carlos Carrasco is a big key for me. He's turning into a very good SP. Plus as good as their bullpen is, Nick Hagadone's been good and Adam Miller's pitching again at AA which is a great story to root for (his Twitter avatar is a picture of the finger)

Pirates, I say 2013 could look really good. Cole, Tallion in the rotation: They have a system filled with mid-back of the rotation arms who could fill what they already have at the big league level. And you know what? I kinda like James McDonald. Not as an ace, but as a solid big league starter.

Cleveland's in a great spot because they'll be there right before KC's guys start to really make an impact, CHW is aging. Twins are, well, I respect the hell out of them because they just defy some logic and grind out every pitch. (Mike Ferrin)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)So good prospect + solid minor league season at AAA at 23 + solid end to the season in 7 starts = I don't like how the confirmation bias is winning out on that one? Yes, TINSTAAPP, but are you really using just his first 5 ML starts, at 22, to knock him at the same time you say you can't use a small time-frame? And yes, false-ish, or a medium would probably be appropriate.
(Chad from Cleveland)
You're not reading what I'm writing. I am not knocking Carlos Carrasco in any way. I am simply saying that just like his 5 bad starts last year didn't tell us much, his 7 good starts this season don't tell us much. I need to see a full season from him to really form an opinion. This is not negative. I just don't know what to think of him yet and refuse to just assume that 7 good starts last year, coupled with a solid minor league pedigree, means he is legit. That's literally all I am saying. I hope he is good next year, but I cannot say with confidence that he will be, because he has not done enough at the major league level to convince me. (Eric Seidman)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Beno Udrih: great point guard, or the greatest point guard?
(Ken from The Sconnie Office)
I don't know enough about Carlos Carrasco to answer this question. (Eric Seidman)
2010-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can the Indians be contenders in 2011? 2012?
(SaberTJ from Cleveland, OH)
The trouble with the Indians is going to be the pitching. Who knows when Jason Knapp will show up in the majors? Alex White looks good at Double-A but I'm not sure he's going to be able to do it alone. Until that problem is solved I think the Indians will struggle a bit. Don't even get me started on Carlos Carrasco. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Similar to Kane County question, who beyond Santana gives me a reason to walk one block to see the Clippers this summer?
(w friend from columbus)
Carlos Carrasco, Jeanmar Gomez, Hector Rondon and others await your visit. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)I'm seriously dying over here for some Carlos Carrasco info. DYING! Tell me he can still be a #2 or #3 in Cleveland
(Felicity from Rancho Cucomonga)
I can't tell you that. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)great work on your "royal" piece; following on that note, if after the season is over, the following scenario appears: Ryan Howard and Carlos Carrasco for Greinke and Kila: a) who do you think is getting the better deal? b)Would the Royals think they are getting the better deal?
(mo from las vegas)
Carrasco's stock has fallen precipitously lately and Kila, though highly touted, is certainly unproven, so you're basically asking if Moore would trade Greinke for Ryan Howard. I know many KC fans think negatively about Moore but there is no way even he would make that move. (Eric Seidman)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, no Carlos Carrasco on your fast-rising prospects? He might be the best one of them all. He's better at AAA than AA, a great sign.
(Will from Conshohocken (PA))
I'm assuming this is a reference to the recent Sports Illustrated piece...Will, that addressed prospects on teams out of the race this season, so Carrasco didn't qualify. I do like him--caught his inning at the Futures Game and was impressed. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone seems down on Carlos Carrasco. The fact that he was only 20 last year and reached AA has to count for something, doesn't it? Will his flaws be ironed out with more innings, or do you see his upside as being limited?
(JM from MD)
It does count for something, but so does his stuff and production. He just doesn't miss a ton of bats, nor have to stuff to project as a big time star. Very good prospect, don't get me wrong -- But I think he's a No. 3, borderline No. 2 in a perfect world. (Kevin Goldstein)
