BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a Giants fan how much should I be panicking right now? Not that the Giants will lose, but that lightning will strike every player other than Aubrey Huff.
(Beau from San Francisco)
World Champions. How can you panic after winning a World Series? They could lose every game for the next eleven years and your life would still be better than it was this time a year ago.

That said: Yeah. The best thing you can say about the Giants right now is that they only have to worry about the Diamondbacks. And I think Mark DeRosa is healthy. Is Mark DeRosa healthy? Can we confirm Mark DeRosa's health? (Sam Miller)
2011-03-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will Pat Burrell keep the everyday OF position with San Fran or does he get bumped by Aubrey Huff when Brandon Belt gets called up?
(bfitzge3 from Upstate NY)
The Giants have a ton of OF options, few of them great, so it depends who hits... Burrell, Ross, Rowand, Torres, maybe Huff... they'll all have to battle for playing time. And don't forget that Mark DeRosa is trying to come back, too. It's a crowded picture. (Cory Schwartz)
2010-05-11 16:30:00 (link to chat)3 NL only guys - Matt Diaz, Seth Smith, Mark DeRosa. Should I cut bait on them?
(Carl from Boston)
I don't play fantasy baseball, so I'm not really sure that I have a good sense of what replacement level is in NL only leagues. Matt Diaz seems like he is in a BABIP funk. His other numbers seem pretty much okay, and he's usually the type to have a very high BABIP, so I'd expect him to be the most likely to bounce back. DeRosa hasn't really shown any power this year, so I'm inclined to think that could be a problem. His BABIP should rebound a bit, but I'd be concerned. Seth Smith isn't walking this year, which I'm guessing is his main problem. His BABIP is low too. All three of these guys seem to be partly unlucky and all have low BABIPs which are drawing your attention. I think DeRosa is the one to be most concerned about if I had to guess. (Matt Swartz)
2010-04-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Even with SSS fun, it's clear the Giants are going to be awfultastic, right? When subtracting Mark DeRosa and Aaron Rowand hobbles an offense, a team's in trouble.
(Bryan from Grounding into DP)
Well, this is what happened last year, no? (And by using "no?" at the end of the sentence I mean that yes, this is what happened last year. Maybe I should've just said that.) The Giants have a tremendous rotation and a pretty solid bullpen, and, once again, one of the most anemic offenses in recent memory. But don't discount the pitching; they will be in games all year long. I ultimately see their fate being similar to last year's: 85-89 wins, out of the playoffs. (Eric Seidman)
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any way to look at the Giants off-season as anything but another disaster?
(bjmd from SF)
It's glum stuff in terms of Sanchez and Huff, certainly, because the disasters involve the elective decisions to sign them, and forgo other alternatives. If the goal was to wind up with a first baseman who might not outhit Travis Ishikawa or Nate Shierholtz or John Bowker, with the flexibility of Mark DeRosa and Pablo Sandoval allowing you to rotate around if all three deliver (no laughing... OK, some laughing), maybe all that's lost is money. I still think the Dodgers and Rockies are takeable, but the disaster is that Sabean didn't seem to realize it, and lined up adequate propositions in an offseason where other teams have been considerably bolder and more creative in fixing their problems. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-01-14 16:00:00 (link to chat)Nothing lasts forever? Look no further than my career. Thoughts on the Giants off-season moves?
(Axel Rose from Cold November Rain)
(Tries to think of clever linkage between GNR's "comeback" and the Giants. Not working.) Pablo Sandoval, Travis Ishikawa, Aubrey Huff, Mark DeRosa. They will all play where? I'm scratching my head. (Russell A. Carleton)
2009-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)I really hate the idea of a rotating DH spot for the Yanks because it means the Yanks will have to rely on positional depth which has not been strong point in recent years. Also, the market for a primary DH is flooded and can be had for cheap. My question is, does the rotating DH spot make any sort of sense? And more generally, what should the Yanks do the rest of the offseason?
(Nick from San Francisco)
I don't have a problem conceptually with the idea of a rotating DH spot, particularly with a bunch of guys who need rest built into their regimens -- A-Rod, Posada, even Jeter and Damon, if he returns -- but you're absolutely right, they need some depth in order to make that worth their while. Mark DeRosa would seem to be a very good choice for such a task, and he's still out there if the Yankees want to go that route.

Beyond that, the Yankees' need to solve left field one way or another, and find a capable back-rotation type who would be comfortable working out of the bullpen so Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes can both get a shot at the rotation. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mark DeRosa has been playing with a "torn sheaf near his left writst" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) since June 30. 1. What are the chances he will recover back to 100% of his previous level next April after surgery to correct it this fall? The article (http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/sports/stories.nsf/cardinals/story/01FB7593764E867C8625762D000D4922?OpenDocument) just states he should be ready for spring training if he has the operation immediately, but that doesn't always mean he will be ever be a borderline all-star again. 2. Can you give us readers any tips on how to tell whether a player is in a slump or playing hurt.
(hotstatrat from Toronto)
Torn tendon sheath. David Ortiz looks pretty healthy, though he certainly didn't at the start of the season. There's question as to whether that was physical or psychological. As for (2), no, read a lot of beat writers who ask the player and see him every day is my best suggestion. (Will Carroll)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Would this offseason be a good time for the Reds to trade Brandon Phillips, what with Todd Frazier coming down the line and their whole payroll going to about four players? It seems like they could get something real pretty in return.
(Charles from Detroit)
It's worth considering, because after Mark DeRosa and Orlando Hudson in the free-agent pool, you've got Placido Polanco. The problem will be Phillips' back-loaded contract and whether the Reds will eat any of it, because otherwise the number of teams willing to trade for a guy due to make $11 million in 2011 are few and far between. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Carl Pavano appears to have recovered from his "dead arm" period and is back to being a decent starter who can get you into (maybe through) the 7th: if a team traded for him, would they be on the hook for his innings-based incentives? How much would Cleveland have to kick in to get an asset for Pavano? (I am on a crusade: it worked with Mark DeRosa.)
(buffum from Austin TX)
I hear what you're saying, Steve, but one good start in a row does not a decent starter make, and his previous three times out, he didn't get through six innings.

At any rate, I suspect it's the kind of complication that the Indians might have to add cash to for the right to make Pavano somebody else's problem. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Where is Mark DeRosa playing the first week of August? I have seen his name attached to the Cubs, Cards, Mets, and Giants, and have tried to coax more clubs to be interested as well. He fits any number of places, but who is likely to offer Cleveland something of real value?
(buffum from Austin TX)
For a utility guy past his prime with three months left on his contract who was traded for not much in the offseason? I'm not seeing it. If they trade him, they'll be taking back a C prospect; it's just up to them to identify the right one. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Well, last season we identified Jon Meloan and Carlos Santana. The difference between Mark DeRosa and Casey Blake is within an epsilon band, no? (If it would help, my guess is that the Indians would again pay DeRosa's salary for a better prospect as they did in that deal.)
(buffum from Austin TX)
Ah, Ned Colletti. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina, Is there any good reason Laporta isn't starting every single day? Also, it seems the Tribe has gotten around to making Peralta and Cabrera play on the left side of the infield. If that sticks, who should be getting the bulk of playing time on the right side of the diamond?
(SaberTJ from Cleveland, OH)
Yep, it's a mixed bag in Cleveland, to be sure. Giving LaPorta a season-ticket package for a stretch struck me as one of the more odd developments, but at this point, with guys like Garko getting outfield reps and Mark DeRosa playing first, it's pretty clear that they're just throwing everything out there to see who can do what. When Garko's riding pine and/or Dellucci's on waivers, I think we'll know that they've moved out of their farting-around period. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which current player most resembles Tom Tresh BEFORE his knee was turned into shredded wheat by SS Ruben Amaros'ill-fated dash into left field in 1967?
(rich from nj)
Let's see... Switch-hitter, stronger from the right side, walks, hits maybe .280 with 25 HRs a season... Mark DeRosa was kind of close this year, right down to the INF/OF defense. (Steven Goldman)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Given that Theriot's performance has likely entrenched him in the starting lineup, and Ronny Cedeno's performance seemingly has him getting the lion-share of middle infield spot starts, what is Mike Fontenot's use now? Does he have any value in a trade? He seems like he could possibly bring the offensive value of Mark Derosa if he got the playing time. Also, what does Rich Hill have to do in order to return to the majors? Change teams?
(mlapointe from chicago)
Fontenot's getting starts at second with DeRosa moving out to left in the positional wheel that Piniella has been employing whenever his roster's Soriano-free, and it works pretty nicely. Add in that it means that he's got a bench player kept sharp with a goodly amount of playing time, and it makes for a better stabbity to go after the opposition with when he's back to pinch-hitting. And if Theriot or Cedeno or DeRosa goes down, it's a happier thing to be the team that still has Fontenot. He'd make for a mediocre regular, and while that might make him wealthy, I think it's more useful to keep him on this roster, especially as the lefty alternative to the righty-hitting Reed Johnson off of the bench.

Hill... it's a gut-wrenching thing to see a guy's control just go away like that. I'd trade for him, but I'm not sure the Cubs can afford to trust him until he gives Iowa a good month or so. It's interesting that Will brought up the Cubs in today's lead article about dealing for Sabathia--I would think that Hill would make a pretty important piece in such a swap, although it would be a bit risky to have both Cliff Lee and Hill in the same rotation. That would be sort of a southpaw roller-coaster ride that would require splatter shielding to protect bystanders. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, do the Cubs really have a trade package worthy of Brian Roberts without including Pie? The Gallagher/Cedeno/et al package being thrown around seems weak for a top-5 2B with two years under contract remaining.
(Steve from PA)
I saw a comparison somewhere--or maybe we were talking about it at a Feed--that Mark DeRosa and Brian Roberts had similar stats last year. DeRosa had the higher OBP, Roberts was better overall, but the gap wasn't huge.

Roberts is the better player, to be sure, and getting him would align the Cubs' talent better. However, I'm not convinced that Roberts + Fuld are better than Pie + DeRosa. And I say that as someone not at all sold on Pie.

If I'm the Orioles, there's no way I deal Roberts for a package where Gallagher is the best player. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see the Cubs making a move for Brian Roberts or going in with what they have?
(RobP from Chicago)
I'm surprised this deal isn't done yet. I thought they had it done in Nashville and then they kind of had to back off during the Mitchell uproar. Now as teams are prepping to head to FL and AZ, I think this one gets done, though I don't have insight as to what the teams are dealing. I think Roberts is a big upgrade and lets Mark DeRosa be a super-utility guy. (Will Carroll)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why is everyone down on Mark DeRosa? I haven't checked his fielding stats beyond I guess his RF was around 4.8 and his ZR was at .850 at 2nd that would have put him in the top three in ZR and top 10 or so in RF in all the MLB. Even though he didn't play 2nd exclusively, what is preventing him from being a good answer at shortstop if Roberts gets traded? He is very patient now, and has some gap power?
(Pat Larkin from Chicago)
Amen, Pat. I really don't get why the Cubs are so determined to achieve a modest upgrade on DeRosa by dealing away anything of near-term value for Roberts. I understand the desire to have depth, and that having DeRosa around as an alternate at third or the outfield corners might work, but as a shortstop, he'd just give Ryan Theriot too much of a fighting chance to remain a regular. I really don't think this is an area where the Cubs need to make a move; their masterstrokes have been to sign Fukudome and to commit to Soto, and I like the possibility of Cedeno taking the job at short from Theriot.
