DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Earl Weaver and the ORIOLE WAY are rolling over...
(John from CT)
The Oriole Way has been dead for a while now. That's not to say it can't be revived, Frankenstein-like, to zombie-walk its way through the AL East yet again. If it was stirring though, the injury to Dylan Bundy probably pushed it back in the deep freeze. You don't hear much about how teams have specific 'ways' anymore, though. Maybe still with the Yankees, though that's mostly a product of Derek Jeter being there. I bet next season we won't hear that anymore. (Matthew Kory)
2013-05-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chances the Royals call up Yordano Ventura this season? Is there any chance he becomes a closer? Or do you think they'll stick with him as a starter?
(Lance from Kansas City)
I really like the raw components of Ventura's delivery, including plus momentum and a long stride that brings him closer to the plate. His balance wavers, but Ventura typically finishes with strong posture as well. As I mentioned in the intro to Episode 2 of the TINSTAAPP podcast, pitching prospects are different from hitters when it comes to development and rising through the system. The demands of the bullpen are less than those of the starting rotation, and he could make the jump from Double-A to the big league bullpen if the Royals decide that his pitch command is far enough along. I prefer starters in a vacuum, but the Royals are in a good position with Ventura to try the Earl Weaver strategy of grooming their SP prospects with some time in bullpen at the highest level. Of course, these days you have to be careful, because a pitcher that succeeds in his first taste of the bigs as a reliever often gets cornered into that role for the long term.

2012-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)What current MLB manager operates most reliably under the Earl Weaver school of game management?
(Brian K from Missouri)
John Gibbons maybe? (Sam Miller)
2012-09-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)My recollection is that Earl Weaver was rather consistent in having his Orioles outperform their Pythagorean Record. But how many Earl Weavers are there?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
I don't know as I've seen that, and it's hard to look it up while I'm live-chatting, unfortunately. (Colin Wyers)
