BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-10-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is it better to keep Lincecum as an option out of the bullpen? Overall, how would you grade Bochy's handling of the SF bullpen w/o Wilson?
(Santi Cazorla from Sacramento)
I'll let Sam Miller pinch hit here, since he's been covering the Giants since the start of the postseason. Re: Lincecum: " It is an interesting option, but interesting options are often more fun for theorizing than in execution. While the Giants' bullpen can certainly use him, the alternative in the rotation--Barry Zito--is untenable."

And re: Bochy's bullpen work: "Bochy has been aggressive about going to his bullpen early, and his confidence in George Kontos seems to be growing by the game. His biggest error was in relying on the back end of his bullpen in game 1 of the NLDS, when the game was still very much in question (for a while). He's gotten good work from his three lefties by not limiting them to strict LOOGY work."

I like this. I should outsource all my chat answers. (Ben Lindbergh)
