BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)If given the choice of AJ Burnett or Kyle Kendrick, who would you choose for a big game? Or would it be more prudent to release them both outright and grab someone from A-ball, if you were the Phillies.
(mshreve1967 from Titusville, NJ)
Gotta admit, I thought Kendrick was going to take a big step forward last season after stepping onto the Halladay/McCarthy/Morton path of throwing sinkers, cutters and curves. Didn't happen. Then again, AJ might retire, and hasn't pitched well this year or in his postseason career, so I'll stick with Kendrick anyway. You're assuming he'll still be around though the next time there's a big game being played in Philly, right? ;-) (Cory Schwartz)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Let's say Dave Montgomery fires Ruben and hires you as the Phillies GM immediately. What August deals would you make to save our franchise?
(Steve from Philly)
Unfortunately, I don't think there's much anyone can do just yet. Ruben's lack of action at the deadline wasn't as appalling as it seemed. His hands were tied by his own previous actions (bad contracts, etc.). I can't believe Papelbon and Bastardo weren't moved, but whatever. I would have eaten any contracts I could in order to get something back and rebuild the system. Not sure what he can do in August. Maybe get rid of Kyle Kendrick if someone will take him? Either way, his hands are pretty much tied until the winter. (Jeff Moore)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Kyle Kendrick actually a good pitcher ? He's been keeping this up for a year now. 1.16 WHIP, 3.28 ERA, 15 wins. If he is, how, why ?
(tbwhite from San Diego)
Yes he is, with command & control mostly. It feels shocking or more surprising because he doesn't have overwhelming stuff. That's a fantasy bias. When guys don't have 95 MPH with a devastating second pitch, we don't give them much attention. And sometimes it takes those grinders a little longer to find their groove. Kendrick started out nicely results-wise, but the skills were lame so we knew he'd regress some. Then he learned how to make his stuff work and post a legitimate K rate (still below avg, but not embarrassing). (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kendrick and S Perez for C Santana, who wins?
(G Money from Five Guys)
Santana side by a lot if that's Kyle Kendrick; dead even if that's Kendrick Lamar. (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Paul, rank these pitchers for 5x5 rest of season: Paul Maholm, Josh Johnson, Roy Halladay, Marco Estrada, Kyle Kendrick, Jarrod Parker. Thanks.
(trippical from cville)
Maholm, JJ (injury guys just scare me & TOR is a mess; upside keeps him 2nd), Kendrick, Parker, Estrada, the chapstick I'm putting on, the desk this computer is on, Halladay (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank these late game SP options? Garcia, Tillman, Straily, Gee, Burnett, Marcum. Who are some of your favorite final round SP sleepers?
(Briscodarlin from Mayberry)
I like Garcia and Gee best of those options. For deeper sleepers, Jeff Niemann and Kyle Kendrick. REM cycle, Rubby De La Rosa. (Cory Schwartz)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you foresee the Phils making a move with the eminent Werth departure, or do you think they are content with a platoon of Franciso/Brown?
(John Locke from The Island)
Content. It'll be an interesting offseason because most fans think more about runs added on offense than runs suppressed with pitching. Losing Werth will hurt, without question, but you also have to remember that they will have a full season of Oswalt instead of just 10-11 starts, and most likely a healthy Joe Blanton going into spring training, which is certainly better than relying on both Jamie Moyer and Kyle Kendrick entering the year. Brown should be solid with regular playing time, and Francisco handles lefties very well. Their platoon won't replace Werth, but the upgrade of having a full year of Oswalt and a healthy Blanton really cuts into that deficit. Plus, it is hard to imagine the offense will be as unhealthy next year as they were this year, so the Phils are bound to get more runs back on that front as well. It is very easy to come up with reasons why they WON'T be as good next year, but I still hold they will win the division again. (Eric Seidman)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you name the top 3 free agents you feel the Phils are most interested in and the percentage chance that we will see them in red pinstripes come April?
(John Doggit from Washington D.C.)
I really, truly, do not see the Phillies making any big acquisitions. If they had the money to make a big move, they would re-sign Jayson Werth or make a push for Cliff Lee, neither of which I expect to happen. They have a lot of money committed to 16 players and need another nine to field a team. I can see them pushing hard to re-sign Jose Contreras, and given his friendship with Danys Baez and his experience this season, I can see Contreras staying put.

But they are set at every position in the starting lineup and their bench is essentially set as well. It would be interesting to go for a better starter than Kyle Kendrick to round out the rotation, like a Jake Westbrook-type, but they seem content on letting Kendrick and Vance Worley compete for that last spot.

I think this is going to be the first year in what seems like a while where the Phillies don't make any significant moves. (Eric Seidman)
2010-04-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is it remotely possible that Jason Marquis can continue to pitch this badly if he is not injured? I know he is no superstar, but he used to at least be above average. The Nationals are at .500 in spite of him, but need him to improve to have a prayer of staying around that level until Strasburg, Wang and Storen join the team.
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Marquis's career ERA is 4.57 and that's exactly how I think of him. He is an average-ish pitcher who survives due to the ability to induce groundballs. He doesn't have pinpoint control and isn't going to rack up strikeout numbers, but he is not a starter who will surrender 7-8 runs per game. We're still very early in the season, and as Kyle Kendrick showed last night, we are still in that area where a pitcher's ERA can drop by 10-11 runs with one good outing. If Marquis has an ERA above 7.50 in June, MAYBE something is going on, but let's let the guy make 5-6 starts before even asking questions like this. For all we know, two starts from now he could be down to 5.64 or lower. (Eric Seidman)
2010-04-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's a Kyle Kendrick and should I be concerned?
(Neil from NJ)
Kendrick is a starting pitcher on the Phillies, until Joe Blanton returns, who experienced success as a rookie in 2007 but who also serves as the posterchild for why stats like SIERA are much more effective at indicating what is likely to occur in the future than ERA. Since 2007, he was prank-traded to Japan, struggled in the minors, became Roy Halladay's mentee (even growing a beard in spring training), and supposedly added a slider, changeup and cutter to his repertoire of a sinker and, well, nothing else. In his first two starts this year he looked about as effective as if Will Carroll was sent to the mound to throw eephus pitches, but he tossed an absolute gem against the Braves last night. Realistically, unless Happ or Moyer gets hurt, or Blanton suffers a setback, Kendrick is not going to stay in the rotation even if he builds on last night's outing, but even for a sinkerballer (a group that can get away without whiffing many hitters) he doesn't strike many out so the odds aren't in his favor. (Eric Seidman)
2008-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc, I would donate my organs for the Phils to win the World Series. Can you give me any hope so I don't have to do this?
(Jeff Nelson from Philly)
Uh, well, Kyle Kendrick isn't in your playoff rotation! You guys can hit at home! It's only seven games, so anything can happen, right? I guess until you come up against the Rays or Red Sox. If the Sox win and are healthy by then, I don't think it's going to look good for Philly, but we'll see. The beautiful/horrible thing about the playoffs is just how open the competition is. If we threw the Royals in here right now, I bet they would have a better shot at being World Series winners than we give them initial credit for. It's the getting here that's difficult. (Marc Normandin)
