BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-11-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Red Sox do at catcher with Victor Martinez headed to Detroit?
(Frank from Dover)
If it's me, I'm signing Yorvit Torrealba or Miguel Olivo to a two-year deal and hoping Salty shows enough to merit playing time in front of them. Both of those free agents are at least average defensively while delivering adequacy in one of the two key offensive categories (OBP for Yorvit, SLG for Miggy). Neither made $3 million last year, so neither should be too expensive, though John Buck's contract may have blown up the market. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Rockies are evidently closing in on a two-year deal for Yorvit Torrealba. Hasn't Chris Iannetta earned a shot yet?
(Ryan from Denver)
You would think he had after killing the ball in '08, but he was back on the bench in '09. If this contract happens, 22 GMs should be calling O'Dowd, immediately. Iannetta can play. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)With Yorvit Torrealba now a free agent, will the Rockies finally hand the full-time starting duties to Chris Iannetta? Or are they going to sign some lesser veteran catcher (such as Torrealba) to eat away half of Iannetta's potential playing time again?
(Frenk from Brooklyn)
If they don't make Iannetta their first-string catcher, then they're idiots. I can think of at least 25 teams who should trade for him if that's the case. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is it too early to start chanting for my freedom?
(Chris Ianetta from Colorado)
Heehee... perhaps not, but to be fair, you're pretty far-removed from arbitration, so Yorvit Torrealba's contract might not be a stumbling block to your getting the playing time you deserve, and that would be poorly invested in him as a regular. (Christina Kahrl)
