BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Cloyd looked like he might be in line to slide into the fifth-starter job in 2013 after a fantastic 2012 that started in Double-A and ended up in the majors. But the signing of John Lannan drops Kyle Kendrick into that job, and Kendrick is basically an older, more refined version of Cloyd. Often working high-80s with spurts in the low-90s, Cloyd has never been viewed as a prospect despite production that might be worthy of such acclaim. In addition to the unimpressive velocity, his secondary stuff is merely okay. He succeeds with touch and feel, pounding the zone and placing the ball where he wants it. Given that approach, you would be right to assume that when he misses, he gets hammered.

2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)In an NL-only deep Ultra dynasty league, I was recently offered Cliff Lee for Michael Wacha, Luis Valbuena, Daniel Hudson, Jameson Taillon and Chris Heisey. I thought I was being asked tp give up too much, and asked for more in return. Lee's owner then turned around and traded Lee for Randall Delgado, Dave Sappelt, Tyler Cloyd, Francisco Peguero and Khris Davis. This deal struck me as either ludicrous or retaliatory: He gave up up top starter (Lee has had four excellent starts since then) for three fifth outfielders and two fifth starters. Am I wrong to think these two offers are not on the same planet?

Hi Gerry.

Without knowing the salaries/contracts of the players involved, I'd agree that the two offers don't compare. Taillon and Wacha are both potentially #2 starters for your future team and Hudson is a good bounce back candidate assuming health. Even if I'm being generous, I don't see how Delgado and Cloyd are going to be better than Taillon and Wacha, and the hitters really seem like bench guys who maybe start at some point if they get really, really lucky. My guess is that the deal was ludicrous rather than retaliatory, but you have every right to be annoyed at your league mate. (Mike Gianella)
