BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which pitcher is more likely to continue their strong start, Garrett Richards or Jenrry Mejia?
(Ned F. from Springfield)
Mejia. But if this is for fantasy be careful about his injury history. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)In an 8-team NL-only keeper league, I snagged Carlos Martinez & Jenrry Mejia for $1 each in our auction this year hoping they would be allowed to start or close. mejia is paying off, but do I hang on to C-Mart any longer?
(Kingpin from Grinnell, IA)
Yeah sit tight for a little longer. Martinez has been far from special, but he's not killing ya at a buck even with modest ratios and a crappy K rate. See if the K rate surges over his next 10-12 outings and go from there (obviously if valuable SP or new closer pops up that you have to pounce on, it should be at the expense of CMart, but hold if it's not blocking you from others) (Paul Sporer)
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)So Jenrry Mejia. What do you think Mets fans should be expecting from him this year and what tweaks should he make to have a chance at staying in the rotation?
(AMetsGuy from NYC)
I just don't see him holding up in the rotation, and I think that he is destined for the bullpen. His delivery is as high risk as it gets, with big momentum and massive torque, but horrible balance and egregious spine-tilt. His timing issues leave him with frequent bouts of elbow drag, which is a major precursor to elbow injury, so I don't think that his health problems are a coincidence. He also lacks the frame to suggest that he can withstand a starter's workload in light of such mechanical inefficiencies. Basically, he would need a complete overhaul to his delivery for me to feel good about him in the rotation.

The stuff is legit, though. (Doug Thorburn)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of impact can Jenrry Mejia have for this upcoming season? What is his potential?
(MetsFaithful5 from Syracuse)
Last I saw, the Mets were debating opening the season with Mejia as their fifth starter. Without knowing for sure how many starts he gets, it's hard to peg his impact. I do think, health provided, he's got the chance to be a useful starter. He compiled some nice numbers in five starts last season, and seemingly hasn't been worse for the wear this spring despite having an odd developmental path due to the Mets' indecisiveness and his own durability woes. I'd like to see them give him a full season of starts and see what he could do with them. If he can't hold up physically then it's time to throw him in the pen. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keep hearing that Jeurys Familia has looked good in Winter Ball. But what exactly can Mets fans expect from him out of the bullpen? Can he be consistent and develop the command and secondary stuff to be a real force or will he just be a hard thrower?
(AMetsGuy from NYC)
I've heard reports of serious velocity from him this winter, which is fantastic news. If he's healthy, he should be consistent enough to be a reliever. Hopefully the Mets will just let him be a reliever instead of trying to force him back as a starter and creating another Jenrry Mejia fiasco. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Jenrry Mejia's erotic stuff and 80 grade hair? Do you think he can stick as a starter?
(Sam from Candy Land)
The hair and arm are fantastic. If the Mets try to make him a starter again, I'm just going to laugh at them. Literally, out loud, to people who don't care. (Jeff Moore)
2013-11-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jenrry Mejia has some seriously good stuff. I would put it on the level of Wheeler's and Thor's. Yet as a Mets fan it frustrates me to no end that he can't stay healthy. Do you think his size and violent delivery keep him from throwing 200 innings?
(Jack from Hoboken)
I am generally not a fan of the "violence" tag, but in Mejia's case it is absolutely true. He has a tornado of rotational velocity that he can't contain, and the volatility of his delivery worries me even more than the sheer magnitude of his ferocity. I also tend to not focus too much on absolute size, but in Mejia's case he clearly lacks the functional strength to stabilize his violence, so his physical attributes are indeed a concern. I see a future in the 'pen unless he makes drastic changes to his physical profile.

On the jukebox: Metallica, "Creeping Death" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)Who are some low owned SPs that are good stashes for next year? Wily Peralta? Nate Eovaldi?
(The Dude from Couch)
Hey Dude. I hope you're abiding.

This question depends on what you define as low and what ownership percentage you're looking at. I'll use ESPN and 10% or lower as the threshold.

Hector Santiago is only owned in 9.5% of ESPN leagues. Everyone keeps waiting for him to falter, but he's striking out over a batter an inning and continues to pitch very well. He's a must own for me.

Danny Salazar is probably going to be on an innings limit this year, but he should crack the rotation next year with a decent spring. His stuff is electric, even if he is "just" a two-pitch pitcher. He's a nice speculative add.

Jenrry Mejia has looked terrific so far. Health is pretty much the question with him. He's trying to throw a little less hard to keep the strain off of his arm, but he's still getting results. Yes, there's risk here. But in a mixed league, if you're stashing guys, go high ceiling. The guys who are free agents - even in a mixer - all have question marks. Go with upside, not boring "certainty" (Mike Gianella)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)What kind of value do you think Jenrry Mejia provides ROS in a 14 team, 5x5 mixed league roto? How would you rank him with Colon, Porcello, Dempster, Kendrick, Salazar? Assume for sake of argument his health stays about where it is now.
(Larry from New York)
Hey Larry.

Mejia's solid if he stays healthy, but that is a significant IF. I'd probably rank those guys Colon, Salazar, Mejia, Kendrick, Dempster, and Porcello. I don't trust Colon's low K%, but you have to tip your cap. Salazar - who I've already referenced a couple of times - is electric. Mejia isn't electric but shows flashes. The last three are inconsistent in deeper mixed, but I like Kendrick the most and Porcello the least of the 3, at least in non-keepers. You really want more upside than Kendrick (anything above that line) in a deeper mixed. (Mike Gianella)
2011-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Higher ceiling: Matt Harvey or Jenrry Mejia?
(rjmoore from Boston)
Well, at this point, Harvey, certainly. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-03-22 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Paul, I was wondering what you thought of Jenrry Mejia and what his ceiling is? I think he has potentially three plus pitches and a bright future ahead of him.
(Azeem from Queens)
I think Jenrry Mejia is a stud. There's no doubt about his stuff - it's electric - and he's also a tremendous worker with great energy. Bright, bright future. Very glad he's a Met. (Paul DePodesta)
2011-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Tommy ... thanks for the chat ... Jenrry Mejia or Matt Harvey for better chance of being a top-flight SP for the Mets sometime in the future?
(dianagramr from NYC)
With Harvey you have the inconsistency of his track record, and with Mejia you have the uncertainty about his ultimate role. Because Mejia is more in control of his uncertainty than Harvey is of his, I'll go with Mejia. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Two questions Marc: 1) Phil Hughes, really this good or are we going to some regression and growing pains as the league catches up? 2) Jenrry Mejia, does the continued presence in the bullpen stunt his development or is really a valuable learning experience? ... I think he'd be better served pitching in the minor every 5th day given his upside.
(Jquinton82 from NY)
I'm with you on Mejia. He's not going to have time to mess with his array of pitches if he's in the bullpen pitching every now and again. That's the Mets for you though.

I like Hughes a lot and have for a long time now. His walk rate is still a bit high for me, but you have to love the strikeout rate. I think he's pretty legit (with obvious SSS ERA caveats). (Marc Normandin)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Was is surprising Tyson Ross or Jenrry Mejia made their team's rosters?
(Nick from Reno)
Mejia didn't shock me, but Ross certainly did, and he pitched very well last night. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-03-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)I have the 2nd overall pick in an expansion draft... who do you like best of the following: Michael Stanton, Desmond Jennings, Domnic Brown, Aroldis Chapman, or Jenrry Mejia?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
I have to go with the power hitters and take Michael Stanton. Everyone has been raving about him this spring. (John Perrotto)
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Two pitching questions: 1) What are the chances of Bumgarner finding that missing velocity? 2) Jenrry Mejia, 8th inning or Triple A? And Happy St Pat's
(Jquinton82 from NY)
Happy St. Pat's to you too, especially when it's such a gloriously beautiful day (here in Chicago, at least). I think Bumgarner's going to be fine, and would refer you to some of the things Kevin Goldstein has said about how, last year, he'd been allowed to throw too much between games, and that was the problem. I'd love to see Mejia stick around, in part because he'd be another guy to count among those story-changing youngsters that the organization does have almost ready. However, like Josh Thole, I can see taking their time and easing him in later on this season. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jenrry Mejia's been torched in the AFL. Is he the Mets top pitching prospect?
(Rhys from Near Shea)
He's easily the Mets top pitching prospect, as the arm is really special, despite the fact that on the mound, he's often a bit of a spectacular mess. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)Why do you hate Jenrry Mejia so much?
(LCB from NY)
Ok, so let me get this right, any prospect who I don't think is in the Top 20 of all of baseball, I now hate? Ok, got it. Man, that's a lot of hate to go around. I like Mejia just fine, but if you think he's top 20, that's kinda nuts. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's your opinion on Jenrry Mejia and do you think Jason Heyward should get some MLB time in August?
(Mike from Utica, NY)
I like Mejia a lot and he's one of the few blue-chippers in the Mets' system. I think it's a stretch to think Heyward is ready to jump into a pennant race but I could see him getting a September callup and being in the lineup sometime in 2010. (John Perrotto)
2009-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your opinion on Jenrry Mejia and whom do you think will be the best out of the rookie centerfielders: Maybin, Rasmus, McCutchen, and Fowler?
(Mike from Utica, NY)
I'm not informed enough on Mejia to give a good answer but I will say that I think Rasmus will be the best of the four center fielders just because he has a little more power than the others. That being said, I think all four have a chance to be well above-average big leaguers. (John Perrotto)
