BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner the most underrated top of the rotation in baseball?
(John from Ohio)
When they are both healthy, you can make a good argument for them. Ross is probably more underrated outside of fantasy circles: I know a lot of casual fans who don't even know who he is. (Mike Gianella)
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are you thoughts on Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner? Would you consider them top 20 SP?
(JR from SD)
I really liked both coming into the season, especially Cashner, who I had 25th overall coming into the season and he's been amazing. I can easily see Cash in the top 20. Not sure Ross has the consistency for that just yet, but he has the raw talent to do it. (Paul Sporer)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's your breakout player for 2014?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Alex, I'm on the Andrew Cashner train. Somehow his late-season dominance slipped under my radar, but when you go back and watch those starts (and some of his other appearances from earlier in the year) he looked better than advertised. Obviously he has a power arsenal, but the finesse aspects to his game surprised me: he was keeping the ball down, mixing his pitches, and so on. Just impressive stuff. Health issues are always going to be a concern with Cashner, but I think he's in for a big season provided he can stay on the field. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)You need to put together a team of MLB astronauts for a hypothetical space mission to save the world. Who's the crew? Who's the captain?
(Slick Vaughn from Popeyes)
Been thinking about this one for an hour now. I'd go: Joel Peralta as the captain (has guts and leadership abilities), Tim Collins (to fit into small places), Andrew Cashner (to fit into large places; plus stereotypical Texan), and Nyjer Morgan (familiarity with the terrain). (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Breakout sleeper pitcher this year?
(Ryan from Connecticut)
Andrew Cashner, Rick Porcello (Paul Sporer)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Am I alright with a fantasy pitching staff anchored by Scherzer, Cain, Shelby Miller, Andrew Cashner, RA Dickey, Drew Smyly and Tyson Ross?
(Lou from washington)
I have no idea. How big is your league? I like a lot of those pitchers. If you're in a 20-team NL-only league, well done! (Except for the three AL guys.) (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Andrew Cashner what kind of pitcher is he this year? Going forward. How much earnings are we talking?
(Francois from Toronto)
Cashner will be a very good pitcher this year assuming health. He started going to his slider more in the second half and the result was a higher strikeout rate but just a harder pitcher to hit overall. I see him as a high teens bid proposition in NL-only but he could earn in the $20s if everything breaks right. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is this the year that Andrew Cashner really breaks out? Or are we waiting a year or two for him to build strength and stamina?
(Jonah from Redwood)
Id say 175 innings and a 3.09 ERA was a pretty good breakout wasnt it? He got some help to get to his 3.09 ERA as his 4.18 FRA would indicate, but he threw 175 innings. Thats huge. That was the big question for Cashner. In that park, hes going to continue to be very good, he will gain some more stamina and be able to hold his plus velocity deeper into games and the season. Id expect the strikeout numbers to rise some. (Jeff Moore)
2013-11-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Doug, I need your input on long-term value. 10 team dynasty with 7 pitcher slots. Have Strasburg, Sale, Fernandez, Harvey and Chapman. Need to select two from Brandon Beachy, Andrew Cashner, Corey Kluber, Brett Anderson, Henderson Alvarez. Help appreciated. Thank you.
(nictaclacta from Glendale)
Your top end is ridiculous, even if you have to wait on Harvey. I would hold on to Cashner from the second group, no doubt, while your last guy is a tougher call. Since your 7th slot could change between now and this time next year, you are probably looking for 2014 value (or trade value) with a shot at upside - for that reason I would choose between Beachy and Anderson. Anderson still has the name and the hope, but the faith is all but sapped, so that is a dice-roll for 2014 with prayers for a break-through season that ups his trade value. Beachy is a command guy, and since command is the last thing to return from TJS, I would say that he has the best chance to vault his value next season, though his down velocity in a small sample of 2013 adds some concern.

On the jukebox: White Zombie, "Thunderkiss '65" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-11-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Andrew Cashner and Danny Salazar for 2014?
(MickeyRivers from NY)
Huge fan of Salazar. An avg fastball at 97 mph with a killer split and solid mechanics? Yes please. The only concern is Salazar's lack of a breaking ball, which might be a problem in the future. Cashner made great strides with his command, and his delivery is very stable while maintaining top-end velo. His development is a step ahead of Salazar's, but and though Cashner has a deeper repertoire, he doesn't have a secondary pitch that is as effective as Salazar's split. It's a close call, but I'd take Salazar in 2014, though their long-term projections will depend on how they adjust.

On the jukebox: Thrice, "Unquestioned Answers" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)Is Andrew Cashner worth holding onto in a 10 tm dynasty league? He gets a ton of ground balls and has good stuff, but the results (mainly Ks) just aren't as good as the stuff would indicate. He's been pretty good, but should I keep waiting for more, or is this what he is?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Hi Shawny

Mixed league? Eh. I own Cashner in my NL expert league. He's fine in that format, but for a shallower league you really want more strikeouts. Cashner throws hard and gets a lot of grounders but there's nothing in his approach that speaks to a sudden spike in the K rate. The contact rates are way up and - logically - the swinging strike rates are way down this year. Maybe some improvements are coming in the long run, but nothing's going to change this year. He's a match-up play for me in mixed. (Mike Gianella)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Andrew Cashner this season? Top 50 SP if he can pitch 180 innings?
(Briscodarlin from CO)
See above. I'd bet the under on those innings... way under. (Cory Schwartz)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Andrew Cashner? I love his K/BB ratio and wonder if you think he could be a top 40 starter if he gets 25 starts.
(Briscodarlin from CO)
I love his K's, not the BB's. Top 40 is hard to see, and that's even if he gets 25 starts, which is also questionable IMO. His single-season high as a pro is 111 innings... total. (Cory Schwartz)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)The SP I will roster most this year is ________ because I see him as a breakout candidate relative to his ADP. The Hitter most rostered for same reasons is: _______?
(Donald Loria from Milwaukee)
I see myself owner lots of Alex Cobb and Andrew Cashner shares this year. Jacoby Ellsbury will also end up on a lot of my squads it seems. (Paul Singman)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brad Boxberger the Closer by the end of the year? Any chance he starts the year in the Bullpen? Thanks
(jake1m from Jenny Lind, Ca.)
Boxberger will compete for a spot in the bullpen. Whether he makes the big club out of spring training or not, he'll see material time with the Padres in 2012. I'm not sure he'll be the closer. If Huston Street is traded at some point, I'm guessing that Andrew Cashner or maybe Ernesto Frieri would be next in line, although Cashner's health and Frieri's control raise questions. (Geoff Young)
2011-09-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does it make sense for the Cubs to move Sean Marshall into the rotation next yr, given their SP woes and lack of a pitching pipeline?
(Matt from Chicago)
It usually makes sense to move any reliever who's capable of starting into the rotation, barring a real embarrassment of wealth. Marshall's stuff has really played up in the pen, though, so in his case, another switch might not be the best idea. Marshall has already been a starter, so we can see how that went--in about 225 innings in the rotation in 2006-2007, he was worth about half a win. In roughly half that number of innings over the past two seasons in the bullpen, he's been worth four wins. Unless you think his shiny new strikeout rate is something that would actually survive a move back out of the bullpen, it probably makes sense to leave him be and look elsewhere (Andrew Cashner to the rescue!). Cue Ray Davies singing "This is Where I Belong." (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why aren't the Cubs looking to deal Carlos Marmol? I despise closers on bad teams (Soria) and he is a prime injury candidate. If they are as enamored with Andrew Cashner and ready to declare him their closer of the future, why not put Marmol on the market as the other RP available are a joke?
(Gray from Chicago)
I think they view Cashner as a starter long-term, and I don't think they view Marmol as an injury waiting to happen. Marmol's cheap, and they don't want to trade anyone that's both cheap and effective. (Ken Funck)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have read various reports that the Cubs intend on keeping Andrew Cashner in the bullpen longterm...so why were they stretching him out as a starter in the Minors. If you say experience I am going to lose it.
(Jake from Seattle)
I would prefer not to get into the head of the Cubs front office. (Marc Normandin)
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Cubs better off making a deal for a pen arm or promoting from within( Andrew Cashner or Jay Jackson)?
(Matt from Chicago)
I would have already had Cashner in the majors. I know he's starting in the minors but he was a dominant reliever in college. I can't believe he is still in the minors. (John Perrotto)
2010-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Andrew Cashner have the upside of Kerry Wood, either as a starter or a reliever?
(Dennis from LA)
Absolutely not. But that's not a knock on Cashner. I don't need more than two hands to count the numbers of pitcher since Wood who have equaled his upside. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Better of the two Chicago minor leaguers? Andrew Cashner (Cubs) or Dexter Carter (White Sox)
(heeler from Peoria, IL)
Cashner. Not even close. (Kevin Goldstein)
