BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-12-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any non-tendered players that might be worth a look as LHH platoon partner for Gaby Sanchez? Mat Gamel, maybe?
(mblthd from PIT)
Nope. Gamel is interesting, but health is a skill and he doesn't have it. I think the Pirates sign someone like James Loney. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jason, Is it too early for calls of "free Travis Snider," or is there nothing left to free there? Just seems strange that he has already been "out-platooned" vs righties by the RH Gaby Sanchez
(Sweet Lou from Pittsburgh)
It would be like freeing a domesticated house cat. It's not likely to hurt anybody in the wild, and eventually it will just wander back home to sleep at your feet and shit in a box. (Jason Parks)
2013-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Matthew, Is it reasonable for the Bucs to expect better-than-average results from what looks to be a platoon at 1B (Jones/Sanchez) and RF (Snider/Tabata)? And if that's reasonable, can you quantify - maybe say 1 more win per platoon?
(Sweet Lou from Pittsburgh)
That's the magic of platoons, that you can take two below average guys, add them together, and get one above average guy. That said I don't see either of those working out brilliantly. Snider looks mess-ful and Tabata did just about everything he could production-wise last season to make his extension look like a mistake. Jones has some power but he had a spotty career up until last season. Maybe I'm selling Gaby Sanchez short but I kinda doubt it. (Matthew Kory)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any non-superstar/star-level players who could be non-tendered that teams should kick the tires on?
(jlarsen from chicago)
With the caveat that I did less than two seconds of research, some interesting names to me are Kyle Blanks, George Kottaras, Nyjer Morgan, Mark Reynolds, Brendan Ryan, Gaby Sanchez, Geovany Soto, Ian Stewart, Drew Stubbs, Dallas Braden, Philip Humber, Tommy Hunter, Jair Jurrjens, Mike Pelfrey, and Jerome Williams. (Geoff Young)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Derek, how badly will Marlins Park hurt Miami's hitters? Marc Normandin has a post today at SBNation indicating things don't look promising from a HR perspective. On a related note, would you keep Gaby Sanchez at $13 in an 8-team, NL-only, 5x5 league with no keeper limit concerns?
(GBSimons from Boise, ID)
Yeah, I've been saying for a while that the deeper fences could hurt their power hitters. I'm pretty much avoiding Marlins power guys this year unless they come at a discount. Stanton is really expensive, so I'm not owning him anywhere despite really liking his skills. John Buck could be a catcher bust since all he has is power. Logan Morrison might not be as bad because the far right field fence is actually shallower, and as a lefty with pull power he could manage to not lose much. In an 8-team NL-only league, I throw Sanchez back at that price unless your keeper system causes some heavy inflation. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)With the exodus of 1B bats, how would you strategize for the season in NL-only leagues? Pay big bucks at the draft for what's still left or scrounge spare parts until the ASB and empty the FAAB chamber when contending NL teams inevitably try to upgrade the position by dealing for AL surplus?
(Hitters Hit from Hitsville)
Get Gaby Sanchez at a discount? He'll be undervalued after a terrible second half last year, but his overall season was comparable to (and slightly better in some ways) than 2010, he's still in his prime, and he'll presumably have full seasons of Jose Reyes and Hanley Ramirez ahead of him in the lineup, as well as Mike Stanton. (Cory Schwartz)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat) Who do you see playing first for the Marlins now?
(tcogle from las Vegas)
I sort of ran through this yesterday, but in short, the Fish have a multiplicity of options because they have prospects who can hit a little in Logan Morrison and Gaby Sanchez, defensively-challenged young veterans like Josh Willingham and Jorge Cantu, and a one-for-one replacement for Jacobs in Dallas McPherson, at least in terms of skill sets. It's a choice the Marlins only have to make now if they decide to add a hitter in the outfield or a third baseman who can pick it; otherwise, they really can go into spring training and have some fun sorting it out. I'd probably do the pitching staff the favor of trying Cantu, and mix in some McPherson. (Christina Kahrl)
