BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-06-29 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite players to deal with, both past or present?
(Gerald from Savannah)
Geez. That's a tough one because there are so many good guys I have dealt with in 24 years of covering baseball. I hate to leave people out but some of my favorites would have to include Sean Casey, John Burkett, Jay Bell, Craig Wilson, Jason Schmidt, Michael Barrett from the past. From the present: Jason Bay, Cole Hamels, Carlos Pena, Scott Rolen, Brandon Phillips, Nyjer Morgan, Neil Walker, Joel Hanrahan, Adam Jones, Max Scherzer, Don Kelly, Chris Perez, Adam Dunn, Matt Capps, Torii Hunter, Kurt Suzuki, Ian Kinsler. (John Perrotto)
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)This is going to be bad for a while, isn't it?
(The North Shore from Pittsburgh)
Yeah, it's probably going to get worse for the Pirates before it gets better but there is at least some light at the end of the tunnel now. At least, they're not trading for Sean Casey and signing Joe Randa and Jeromy Burnitz anymore. (John Perrotto)
2008-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any good comps to Todd Helton's back surgery and rehab? The man knows his strike zone, but is there a chance any of that power returns?
(jlewando from dc)
Rafael Furcal is a pretty good one. Hardly the same player or type, but showed that a player can come back to level pretty quickly. Helton's fast becoming Sean Casey, which isn't a bad thing, just not what he's being paid to be. (Will Carroll)
2008-02-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Not a lot of news from the RedSox camp. It seems they are basically standing pat going into the '08 season. Apparently Theo is comfortable with the position players he has? Does he has something up his sleeve this spring? What are your thoughts about the recent aquisition of Sean Casey and is he a good fit? I am also curious about their situation at SS and their highly touted prospect Jed Lowrie? Is Lugo on the bubble?
(mwanders from Moscow, ID)
Casey isn't as bad an idea as I thought it was at first glance. He's a lousy regular, of course. His skill set--line drives--makes him a fairly good PH option against righties, and he can play first, with Youkilis moving to third, 20 times a year so Lowell gets a breather.

For whatever it's worth, people genuinely love the guy. Then again, Luis Gonzalez had that rep two years ago, too.

The Red Sox are making their changes from within...Buchholz, Ellsbury, eventually Lowrie, Masterson, Anderson...just a terrific organization right now. (Joe Sheehan)
