BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)I know it's too early to make radical moves, but it seems the Brewers have made definitive decision to replace Henderson with K-Rod in closer role. Is it too early to drop Henderson in a 15 team mixed league for a highly skilled RP with a better chance to pick up saves down the road, like Ottavino or Drew Storen? Do you see Henderson working his way back into meaningful end game innings?
(Wyatt from NYC)
I think that Henderson has a better chance for future saves than Ottavino or Storen, so I would hold for now. That does depend somewhat on your bench space, and all the early injuries might be creating a crunch. I think that the Brewers want Henderson in the closer role, but he is not close enough to peak form to trust at the moment. If/when he rights the ship, then he could be 1-2 K-Rod blowups away from getting the job back. Storen and Ottavino could be 3rd in the pecking order for their respective clubs, so I'd keep Henderson and check back in a few weeks. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking for saves in 2014, how many of these guys are capable/likely to grab 20+ saves next season: Trevor Rosenthal, David Robertson, Cody Allen, Jake McGee, Brian Wilson, Luke Gregerson, Pedro Strop, Drew Storen, Ryan Cook, Carlos Martinez, Vic Black, Joakim Soria, Neftali Feliz, Steve Delebar, Kelvin Herrera, Carter Capps, and/or AJ Ramos?
(J-Qwellin from Deplorable Future Leaders of America Club)
J-QWELLIN!!!! Interestingly enough, I'm working on such a piece re: 2014 closers. From your group, I'd go Rosy & D-Rob, but honestly any of them have the capability. I know that's a little copout-y, but that's the nature of the beast with relievers. (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's happened to Drew Storen? Care to diagnose his issues? Do you think he'll return to his 2011 level of effectiveness?
(Adrian from Washington D.C.)
relief pitchers are hard to measure. Every season is a short sample. But, that said, he was just as effective in 2012 as in 2011, despite missing time with injuries. And he's been stingy with the walks this year, so what's to worry about? K rate is stable (rebounded from a little dip last year, but just 30 innings so yawn). His velocity this month is about 1 mph down from where it was in May 2011, but that's not alarming. (Harry Pavlidis)
2012-11-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank the following keepers (deep league so don't be alarmed by inflation, and saves are NOT available on the waiver so most closers are kept): Ian Desmond ($15), Addison Reed ($8), Yovani Gallardo ($21), Drew Storen ($8)
(eliyahu from DC)
Tough without knowing league parameters and exactly what inflation is like, but probably Desmond, Storen, Reed, Gallardo. (Derek Carty)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have read that the Nats might have offered Jordan Zimmermann, Drew Storen, Michael Burgess and danny Espinosa for Zach Greinke. The team gets credit for forging a deal, even if Greinke turned them down. Still, was that a fair price, or were the Nats overpaying if it were true?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
To me, that is too much to surrender IF you cannot sign Greinke to an extension on the spot. Zimmermann is a good young pitcher, and Storen looked great last year as well. Burgess and either Espinosa/Desmond I would gladly give up for Greinke with/without the extension, but the other two would make me hesitate. Now, if Greinke signed a 4-5 year extension after the trade, I could live with it, but this trade made me think of the Carmelo Anthony rumors from a month ago, where he wasn't set on signing an extension with the Nets and then the Nets would end up giving up too many players to the point that they wouldn't have been all that good even WITH Anthony. Valiant effort from the Nats, but I think it is better for their future that they held back here. (Eric Seidman)
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)We Nationals fans have gotten ourselves all worked up about Drew Storen coming to the major leagues. It's an exciting development. Still, as a neutral observer, would you say that there is any more reason to expect immediate success from Storen than for other relief prospects brought up to the majors in recent years?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
I think he'll do fine. A relief pitcher can only make so much of an impact because of the limited number of innings he will pitch but Storen should help bridge the gap from the starters to Matt Capps for now and is defintiely the closer of the future. (John Perrotto)
2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sir, request permission to be excited about my Nationals in spite of the fact that your models still rate them as second rate, SIR!
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
You have every reason to be excited. It's not that I think the Nationals can continue along as bona fide contenders, but it's clear at this point that they've turned the page on the Jim Bowden-assembled joke, and with the arrivals of Stephen Strasburg and Drew Storen to look forward to in the near future, they're going to become even more interesting. Enjoy it for what it is, by all means. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)In 5 years, which Nationals pitcher has had the better career, Stephen Strasburg, or Drew Storen?
(Noah Braun from my house)
Strasburg. Is there really anyone who thinks differently? (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-03-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on how long Lance Berkman is likely to be out? I assume he'll start the year on the 15 day DL... Also, what is the earliest we can reasonable expect the Nats to call up Drew Storen this year? Chances on him being installed as the closer some time this year?
(Pat from NJ)
Berkman shouldn't be out for more than a week or two to start the season. All things considered, that's not so bad.

If Storen pitches well, expect him up in June or July. They drafted him partly because they thought he could be a fast mover, and it wouldn't shock me if he's only being sent down for service time reasons. (Shawn Hoffman)
