BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which team's surprisingly good starter is most/least likely to hold up in October? Yusmeiro Petit, Edison Volquez, Matt Shoemaker, Tanner Roark, Lance Lynn
(Christopher from Queens)
Injury notwithstanding, I like Matt Shoemaker's chances of giving the Angels a frontline performance in the playoffs. His splitter is an absolute menace. On the flipside, I would be very nervous about banking on either Petit or Volquez, excellent regular seasons notwithstanding. Which means that in two days, Volquez will two-hit the Giants over seven innings and move the Pirates into the NLDS. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Given all the postseason myths that fail to hold up to scrutiny, can you give me any reason to think any of the 10 teams are more likely than the others to win this World Series?
(Kevin from Kansas City)
Myths aside, some teams are just better than others, and while a best-of-seven series might not bear that out, it's still more likely than not that the better team will advance. The problem with the myths is that they amplify the importance of one specific aspect of a team and, as a result, overlook another that isn't necessarily less important. Pending Matt Shoemaker's health, I would view the Angels as the favorites, because they are the best overall team.

The last point I'd make here is that the six teams who've already secured Division Series spots are obviously more likely than the other four to win the World Series RIGHT NOW, because they can't be eliminated in one game. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Shoemaker ended up leading the PCL in K's with Salt Lake. Is he just a guy or is he a GUY?
(BobcatBaseball from Athens, OH)
If he had serious big-league potential, it's probably safe to say the Angels would have called him up at some point this season. (Jason Cole)
