DateQuestionAnswer
2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the your last unfiltered spot - it really helped clarify some thing for me. My question is in reference to a potential sim league (Diamond Mind) transaction but am curious as to your thoughts for the sake of MLB. Howie Kendrick for Jon Sanchez. Who gets the better end of this deal for the rest of the year? Rest of the player's careers?
(JM from Tucson)
Let me ask you this... if Sanchez didn't throw a no-hitter, would there be this hype? Bud Smith and Anibal Sanchez have also thrown no-hitters. Sanchez has talent but I really do fear his career takes the Oliver Perez route instead of the Matt Cain route. I'd need to know more about the league, like who you have in the infield and your staff but I do want to impart not to overrate Sanchez because he threw a no-hitter. (Eric Seidman)
2008-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Lesters 130 pitches plus record for most starts this few games into the season...recipe for disaster...Bud Smith?
(Justin Singer from Miami)
One of the best shots I saw was John Farrell and Paul Lessard side by side, watching Lester's every pitch. His velocity seemed fine, he didn't look fatigued, and they were going into a couple games where they'd have a de facto six man rotation. I'd like to see them skip him or at least have a very low limit on him the next couple times out, but I don't think they were uncautious. Smith was STRUGGLING at the end and really 'reaching back.' (Will Carroll)
