DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Jonathan Singleton down the stretch? He's supposedly made some swing adjustments and is hitting lefties. Good source for cheap power? Do you like him over someone like Josh Reddick?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
They're about equal in my eyes, but Singleton has less competition for ABs from what I can tell. I'd roll the dice on him. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Marcell Ozuna? He was rushed to the bigs and wasn't considered a polished player to start with, but he looks like he's getting his feet under him. Is that ballpark and lineup enough to keep him down from a fantasy perspective?
(birdzfan52 from Baltimore)
Very talented, but I bet the lack of polish/experience gets to him at some point this year. I've likened him to The Good Josh Reddick before #interracialcomps and I'm going to stick with that for now. Exciting player, but I don't think he's a finished product, despite his nice start. (Ben Carsley)
2013-10-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Michael Choice can crack the opening day roster for the A's? If so, what kind of season could you see him having? Thanks Matt!
(Mike from The Couch)
I think he could. It depends on whether or not there's an open spot in the outfield. How long is Josh Reddick out? Do the A's pick up Coco Crisp's option? Do they trade Cespedes and if so do they get an outfielder in return? (Matthew Kory)
2013-10-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you were Oakland, who stays and goes for 2014? Some choices are obvious -- Chris Young and Kurt Suzuki are gone. Grant Balfour and Bartolo Colon are probably not affordable. Brett Anderson, Seth Smith, and Josh Reddick are all non-tender candidates, though Smith and Reddick could be back because it doesn't look like Michael Choice is ready. How do they fix the middle of the infield? Jed Lowrie isn't going to put up this type of offense to make up for that poor of a glove and Eric Sogard and Albert Callaspo -- just, no. The Coliseum hides the total mediocre state of the A's rotation.
(Dave from Chicago)
Great question. Agree on Young and Suzuki. Balfour will probably price himself out of Oakland, a team that has no problem with a revolving door of closers. I think that Reddick sticks around, unless his homer counts exorbitantly drive up the price in his first year of arbitration. It will be interesting to see what Colon wants contractually, and the A's could easily bow out if he wants a multi-year deal. There is no way that the A's pay $8 million for Anderson next year, so his option will be declined, but it will be interesting to see if he re-signs on a one-year deal to re-establish his value. Coco Crisp will probably be taken up on his $7.5 million option, given his somewhat unique blend of speed and power in CF (as well as his clubhouse appeal). The A's like the power that Lowrie offers in the middle of the diamond, and their backup options are less than inspiring (Nakajima has turned out to be a waste of $6.5 million).

The A's pitching succeeds in many ways that are tough to see. Yes, the Coliseum and its immense foul territory certainly help, but the A's have an excellent system in place for pitcher development. They emphasize balance, posture, and pitch repetition - and they eschew the slide step! So they earn the benefit of the doubt when it comes to developing pitchers from within and identifying which arms to bring into the system.


On the jukebox: Aerosmith, "Ragdoll" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-06-27 13:15:00 (link to chat)Should we still hold out hope for Josh Reddick, or is he just riding the coattails of his awesome year last year?
(RotoLando from Cloud City, Bespin)
"Awesome" seems like a strong word to describe what he was last season, which ended with a slump. He's had injury issues this season, and his glove helps even when he's not hitting. He's probably better than this, but not what he was last May-July. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-04-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)How worried should I be about Josh Reddick? The K and BB numbers aren't awful, but he's losing playing time and that average is hideous.
(Andrew from CA)
If you're expecting the guy from the first half (or thereabout) last season then very worried. Otherwise he should still be a platoon outfielder type when it's all said and done. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Josh Reddick, flash in the pan and what we've seen late season into this year is the real Reddick, or, will be just fine and finish with numbers similar to '12?
(LoyalRoyal from KS, USA)
I don't think he's as good as his 2012. In the offseason, I suggested Oakland sell high on him out of what appeared to be an outfield surplus. However, it looks like the guys they did give away in the Jed Lowrie deal haven't amounted to much yet.

Reddick ought to be better than this and he will be, but 32 home runs is probably too ambitious. (Zachary Levine)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Josh Reddick, do you think his stats can improve in '13?
(Dave from Boston)
I think 2012 was probably his peak, but it can be repeated. His power plays anywhere (he hit 18 of his 32 in OAK), but he sold out his AVG for it. I think the BB% can rise some as he ages. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who you like better Jason Kubel or Josh Reddick?
(Jim from Tennessee)
Hard to say w/o any context -- if we were talking solely about '13 I guess you could make an argument for Kubel, but I'd still pick Reddick. He flashes some elite tools (arm, footspeed) and is poised to see some positive regression this season. Big fan, and he's entering his age-26 season. We should see continued improvement for at least the next 2 seasons. (Ian Miller)
2013-02-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Among the A's "surprise" breakouts (Josh Reddick, Brandon Moss, Josh Donaldson's second half), who do you think has the best chance to maintain their performance in 2013?
(VeganRyan from Oakland, Ca)
Gotta go with Reddick. Elite-level tools, and still super young. I feel like both Moss and Donaldson could build on their 2012 performances, but Reddick is uniquely poised to bounce back from a poor year and really show people what he can do in his age-26 season. (Ian Miller)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jason. Will the Red Sox give Ryan Kalish a full-time job or does the organization view him, like Josh Reddick before him, as a major league player but not good enough for Boston?
(michaelmcduffe from ottawa)
: I think Kalish will get the chance to earn at-bats this year, even if the Sox re-sign Cody Ross and add a third outfielder to put on the other side of Ellsbury. He has to stay healthy first, but he can be a starting-caliber corner bat in any town, and I suspect he’ll get that shot in 2013, since it's asking a lot to expect Cherington to land two outfielders this winter. (Jason A. Churchill)
2012-08-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know the sample size is small, but do you think the A's Chris Carter has turned the corner and can be a solid major league bat going forward? A middle of the order of Josh Reddick, Yoenis Cespedes, and Carter has been a pleasant surprise this year.
(Tom from Madison)
I was holding on to Carter for one more year, and I'm glad I did. His at-bats this year are so much better, and that's been the big difference for him. I think he'll be solid, to use your word. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-07-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your expectations for Travis Snider rest of season? He has recently improved his K:BB ratio at AAA and hopefully that translates to big league success.
(Sizzle from MA)
Snider has a solid minor-league track record and is still young enough to put it together. As Josh Reddick is reminding us all, sometimes it takes a while for everything to click. Will Snider be a star? No, but he should improve on last year's trial run and could have a decent career. He hit .249/.315/.443 in nearly 600 PA for Toronto in 2009 and 2010. That seems like a reasonable baseline for the immediate future. (Geoff Young)
2012-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think is quietly having an outstanding season this year? Anyone flying under the radar with great numbers or significant improvement from last year?
(Richard from Los Angeles)
Despite the All Star bid, I don't think Carlos Ruiz is being talked up as much as I would expect. Josh Reddick has been phenomenal lately. Jason Kubel is another player outperforming at least my expectations.

For pitchers, definitely Johnny Cueto. (Dan Turkenkopf)
2012-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi! Does Josh Reddick have it in him, .290/.360/.510 this year?
(exer from naples)
No. He's not that good a pure hitter, and I have no idea where you are finding that OBP. I think he's current line is a pretty good upside number. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Yoenis Cespedes, vampire hunter? Does your love take it even there?
(Evan! from Africa!)
This is asking a lot. I love Yoenis Cespedes with most of my heart (I realize it's rather early for that), but he probably can't sing and Buffy's backup crew is a lot better than Cespedes's. (Except for Josh Reddick, who is Giles, obvs.) (Jason Wojciechowski)
2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Josh Reddick? Is he over his head? Should the A's extend him? Does his hair qualify as a mullet under international mullet specifications?
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
The unfortunate thing about a player excelling from the moment he's traded to your team is that you haven't really paid attention to him before the trade. If Jermaine Mitchell came up from Sacramento to the big leagues and hit like Reddick has hit, I'd say "no, he's over his head" because I've followed his career a little bit for a few years. (Also because he's 27 and has a .258 TAv in AAA.) With Reddick, who knows. He has an amazing ability to foul off pitches that he has no business swinging at, which is certainly one way to go about having at-bats.

I refuse to issue a ruling on his hair because if he's got a mullet, then I'm awfully close. (Jason Wojciechowski)
2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite current baseball player and places to get donuts/burgers in LA?
(Fred from LA)
Right this very second, it's Josh Reddick. The power, the laser arm, the hair, the championship belt, his embrace of the fans in the right field bleachers. Can't get enough.

Donuts: Bob's at the Farmer's Market. Legendary.

Burgers: Umami Burger is sort of our staple (the Los Feliz one on Hollywood down the street from the Vista Theater is large, has beer, and is perfectly located), though I have a fondness for Pie 'n' Burger in Pasadena. Simple burger on a grilled bun, interior design that hasn't changed in 50 years. Just lovely. The pie is skippable, though. (Jason Wojciechowski)
2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are you married? I think you're funny on twitter.
(Erica from Los Angeles)
Try Josh Reddick. He's pretty good on Twitter, too. (Jason Wojciechowski)
2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)I grant you that Moscoso and the best-named pitcher ever have fallen apart in Colorado, but three years of Seth Smith doesn't seem worth having since the guy has a 98 OPS+ and if he ain't hitting, he ain't nothing. Tell me what else Billy Beane has done for you lately.
(oira79 from San Francisco)
Alternatively, Smith has a .289 TAv, well above-average. I don't know if the difference between OPS+ and TAv in this case comes down entirely to a proper weighting of OBP vs. SLG (Smith is, admittedly, not hitting for any power so far) or if there are also disagreements about park factor and league between our numbers and Baseball-Reference. But I'd run with TAv.

I mean, even if Smith has been barely adequate this year, Beane still got a barely adequate player for two bad players. That's an upgrade.

Also: Josh Reddick for an injured closer. I'll take it. (Jason Wojciechowski)
2011-07-21 16:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, is Josh Reddick for real in your opinion? He's not this good but can he be an above average RF in Boston?
(Cory from Canada)
His power is reddickulous, but he's shown strides this season in his plate discipline that has hounded him in the past. I think he deserves a chance to show he can handle the job, and that lineup can carry him, but I don't see him as above league average in 2012. (Jason Collette)
2011-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Josh Reddick?
(BoSox from Boston)
I like him. Average to slightly above-average across the board. Not special, but should develop into a quality major leaguer, although probably not a first-division type. (Jason Parks)
2011-04-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Josh Reddick is off to a good start for the PawSox this year...It doesn't look like he has a future in Boston, but could you see him starting elsewhere in the majors if the Bosox traded him away?
(uptick from St. Louis)
As a second-division type, yes. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What should we expect from Desmond Jennings next season? Is McCutchen too much to ask for?
(tommybones from brooklyn)
That's asking a lot out of the gate. His season at Triple-A was really no better than Josh Reddick's, and though Jennings was a better prospect at the start of the season (five stars against four, via Kevin Goldstein) that's not exactly something to be excited about. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)After an abysmal first half, Josh Reddick has been on fire since the break -- 368/396/647 -- is it time for Boston to give him another look?
(Nick from Allston, MA)
He'll get a call in September, and given Mike Cameron and Jacoby Ellsbury are both out of commission, he'll get some at-bats. Ryan Kalish passed him on the depth charts and prospect lists this year, but as Boston reminded us this year, there's no such thing as too much depth, and they are as curious as we are as to what they have in Reddick. (Marc Normandin)
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What in the world has gone wrong with Josh Reddick?
(WiiUser from Mexico)
Triple-A-itis. Tasted the big leagues and wants to get back, so he's trying to get five hits or a five-run home run in every at-bat. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-03-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Josh Reddick - could he actually end up playing CF at the major league level, or is he really just a corner guy?
(leites from New York)
I think he's one of those more "center in a pinch" types who works better in a corner. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, what can the Reed Sox do to improve on this year's result? Obviously they won plenty of regular-season games and they don't have many real deficiencies, but that playoff series left a bad taste in my mouth.
(Dr. Wayne Pitcher from Castro Valley, CA)
A bad taste? Maybe it's my being an A's fan, but between the burgeoning promise of Texas, the Mariners' interesting volte-face, and the Angels' present reign, I very much liked seeing the AL West school an East beast and remind people that baseball is not merely about the same two teams the networks go gooey for. I think the Red Sox really do have to find an answer for left field, because the division's going to be too tight next year for them to be able to just settle for a placeholder or give Josh Reddick a developmental year. There are no good answers at shortstop as far as free agency, so it's either settle for what they have or talk to the Brewers about how to get J.J. Hardy. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-09-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, in her chat last week CK classified Josh Reddick as a "middling talent." Maybe I'm wrong here, but a guy with above average power, excellent contact skills, a canon for an arm, and enough range to play in center seems like a little more than "middling."
(antler234 from VA)
I agree with you, but BP is not some kind of single-minded army, we all have our opinions about things, and all of us often differ with others in their opinions on the game or players or business issues or whatever. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's up Mark! In yesterday chat CK referred to Josh Reddick as a "middling" talent, so my question is: at what percentile does Reddick needs to play to achieve an Ellsbury level? Is his upside much lower than Ellsbury? Is Kalish upside better than Reddick?thanks!
(mo from vegas)
I like Reddick a bit more than that. His bat's not great, but it should end up as average, and he's one of the best defensive outfielders in the organization. An average bat along with plus defense is a good thing. See: Mariners, Seattle.

Ellsbury takes bad routes, and his speed is the reason he doesn't always grade out as poor as his defensive skillset looks. In center he may be an average defender (or worse, like he is this year) and since his bat is good, but not great, so of course there's a chance Reddick ends up as the better player, even if it shows up in the non-flashy numbers. (Marc Normandin)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Josh Reddick: where does he fit?
(R.J. from Tampa)
I think it depends on who the Red Sox chase this winter. If they let Bay walk and don't pursue Holliday, then they have a spot in left field for Reddick. Or right, if they move Drew over to left since he's slowing down a bit with the glove. I like him a lot though--given his solid bat and defensive skills, he'll probably be pretty underrated. (Marc Normandin)
2009-07-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Would you take Josh Reddick over Lars Anderson?
(judyblum from MA)
Yup. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Josh Reddick is tearing it up down in Portland. It's only six games but he's hitting .400/.444/.1000 with four homers. What is his ETA in Boston and what kind of player do you think he can be?
(mattymatty from Philly)
I'm pretty excited about having Reddick in Boston. I think he's the kind of guy who hits for a high enough average that you can deal with the lack of patience. He won't have great power, but it will be good enough, especially when you combine it with his defense and ability to put the bat on the ball with solid contact. (Marc Normandin)
