DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance the Astros take Craig Biggio's son in this draft? I have heard he is a 2nd round talent, but is also committed to Notre Dame. How much of a role do connections play in the draft?
(Mark from Utah)
Connections are always important, but the association can't prevent other teams who value his talent from popping him early in the draft. Im not sure how committed to Notre Dame he is, but that's another factor in the equation. (Jason Parks)
2013-01-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Fill in the blank: If I think Jack Morris is an HOF'er but not Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, and- for Pete's sake!- Edgar Martinez, I am a _______.
(Eusebio from Houston)
...believer that election to the Hall of Fame should be based on narrative rather than statistical evidence. (Jay Jaffe on the Hall of Fame)
2013-01-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio are both easily Top 15 players all-time at their position (and Bagwell maybe even Top 5); Schilling is one of the best RH pitchers of the last fifty years, both regular season and certainly post-season, couldn't even get 40%; Bernie Williams and Kenny Lofton, two of the best CF of the last 30 years, didn't even get enough to stay on the ballot. How broken is the system? Can it even be fixed? What would you say to someone that says that, considering there are mediocre guys that have been elected and excellent ones that have been snubbed, that the Hall of Fame has been rendered meaningless as an honor?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
I don't think the system is as broken as you suggest, by any means - one year is a small sample size by which to judge the results you mention. Bagwell and Biggio will be in very soon. I have Bernie well below the standard, and Lofton slightly below, so I can't really get too up in arms over that portion of what you wrote.

The Hall is still a pretty great honor; even if some of the wrong guys are getting in, to me it's far more worth fighting for the right guys getting in than walking away in disgust. The presence of Jim Rice or even Jack Morris in Cooperstown shouldn't ruin it for anyone. (Jay Jaffe on the Hall of Fame)
2012-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jay - Do you feel that the Hall of Fame will start to give guidelines to the voters sooner rather than later when it comes to steroids? I have seen comments regarding how quickly Bagwell shrunk in size as to why someone was not going to vote for him (Chicago Tribune). As Phil Rogers says, 580+ writers, 580+ opinions on the matter. Thanks
(Brian from Tinley Park)
Good question. I think we're years away from that, because while there are several candidates about to hit the ballot whose careers have been linked to PED use, there are also a bunch of milestone candidates whose elections are a virtual lock. Even without Barry Bonds and Roger Clmeens, you'll still have Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Randy Johnson and Craig Biggio on that score, as well as solid candidates without the milestones OR PED connections such as John Smoltz and Curt Schilling. I think we're years away before the Hall feels a need to interject itself into the debate on the guideline grounds. (Jay Jaffe's Hall of Fame Special)
2010-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is your best estimate as to the attendance gain the Phillies will receive because they locked up Howard? Asked another way: if they had let him walk after 2011, what percentage of their fans would not buy a ticket in 2012?
(Ruben from Philly)
I don't think it would have made any added difference, aside from the impact it has on the team itself. If the Phillies are good, people will come regardless of who is playing first base. Howard doesn't have that Craig Biggio franchise value where it's almost sorta kinda worth having him around, even if you have to pay him or play him more than you'd normally want. (Shawn Hoffman)
2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Moondog Matinee - both because you learn something about stuff you might not have ever heard (Frogman Henry!), and because you can feel how much they care. Forget the 'roids stuff for a bit. If Griffey continues to hit like Jose Vidro, what do they do with him. Has any other team ever dealt with a similar situation of nostalgia v poor performance?
(mattb from Tacoma)
A ton of them, be it the Astros with Craig Biggio a couple of years ago, or the Brewers taking on Hank Aaron... For the M's, I suspect part of the calculus was giving the fans someone to root for while they rebuild. It's a one-year deal, so they won't dump out of it, but they can start restricting his playing time a lot more than they have. (Steven Goldman)
2009-02-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steven: Joel Sherman has a piece up today about Jeter and what the Yanks will do when his current contract expires. It seems clear that he won't be moving off of SS within the next two years (and it seems just as clear that at age 37 he won't have a real position). So what does the team do?
(Joe from Washington, DC)
This is the zillion-dollar question, one that I've asked both in the Pinstriped Bible and in BP 2009. I don't know, because it's hard to imagine the Yankees passing up Jeter's hunt for 3000 hits -- even though said hunt could shackle them the way Craig Biggio shackled the Astros. (Steven Goldman)
2008-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Joe, I love your work, but throw away comments like this: "Because his offense isn't developing, and there's a notion--one I can get behind--that he's stagnating as a player in part because of his inability to master second base" cause me to scratch my head. What would lead you to believe that Weeks' inability to defend has a negative effect on his hitting, or that switching to an arguably harder position would increase his offensive production? Is there any evidence that supports players switching positions and then producing more at the plate?
(Steve from NY)
No studies. Scads of ancedotal evidence. B.J. Upton, Craig Biggio come immediately to mind. Paul Molitor, maybe. We know that Weeks hasn't hit as expected. We know that he's struggled to master second base. We know that he has tools that might translate to center field. There's risk, sure, but there's upside as well. I'd rather take a shot with the position change. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, what do you think of Russell Martin moving to another position in the next few years? It would be dumb for the Dodgers, but would it be smart for Martin individually? He seems to be very comparable to Craig Biggio.
(jtrichey from Indianapolis)
Biggio couldn't catch very well, and speed was a huge part of his value. Martin is a good defensive catcher whose speed is an asset, not a defining thing. He should stay behind the plate for a long time. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alright, what about any current players likely to be underrated by HoF voters? Craig Biggio?
(Nick from NYC)
Lots, I think. Not Biggio, who has the "scrappy" card, and reached the magic number he didn't really need.

A whole bunch of pitchers whose win totals reflect the changes in the game stand to be judged harshly: Mussina jumps out at me as the vanguard of this group.

There are some players, such as Jim Thome, who are more than qualified but who may find themselves struggling to get in as voters overcompensate for the era. Note that this DIDN'T happen for pitchers who played in the 1962-68 period, because preventing runs is morally superior to producing them.

Especially on deadline. (Joe Sheehan)
