BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Diaz kills left-handed pitching. Isn't it easier to find him a righty-masher platoon mate than to find a full-time left fielder?
(Christopher from Nashville)
How many lefty platoon mashers are there, though? Not as many as you'd think, and many of them wind up employed as everyday players already, given the roster crunch that favors employment of fourth-tier relievers at the expense of tactical weapons on offense. They just tried it with Garret Anderson, after a fashion, and that flopped. Trying it again with Ryan Church or seeing if there's anything left with Brian Giles? The best best might be to get in on any offers for Brad Hawpe. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, how do the Braves fix their absolute mess of an outfield, now and down the road?
(steveomd from Ohio)
Start by pulling the ol' switcheroo the next time the traveling secretary hands out plane tickets to Jeff Francoeur and Garret Anderson, maybe something along the lines of a flight to Tijuana via Nova Scotia.

I'd start with the assumption that McLouth should be playing a corner position (does he have the arm for right?), platoon Gregor Blanco and Omar Infante in center, at least until you're satisfied Schafer is ready, and try to find a lefty bat that can match with Matt Diaz in left. And look forward to the day when Jason Heyward is ready (two years?). (Jay Jaffe)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any way to fix the Braves OF situation? The way I see it, they don't have a single outfielder who should be playing every day right now, and at least one who shouldn't be playing at the major league level.
(Matt A from Raleigh)
Stick with the commitment to Schafer, because that's been made and should be worthwhile. I'd play Brandon Jones, because I never got as down on him because of his Triple-A funk last season as some people did; there's your left-field platoon, with Diaz. The problem's really still Frenchy, and Garret Anderson's not really a fix there, even in a platoon. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Garret Anderson is talking about playing until he gets 3000 hits. I don't think anyone considers Anderson a hall of famer, except, with some of the inexplicable reasoning of the BBWAA recently, how much consideration would he get if he played four more seasons as a regular?
(Josh from Sacramento)
If Harold Baines can't get much more than five percent, neither will he, but then I have a hard time imagining any team(s) withstanding four years of him as a regular at an offense-first position given production declining from his 2005-2008 level as he moves into his late 30s. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-02-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Joe Crede? I figure there's a chance that he'll perform better than Buscher/Harris, and if/when he gets hurt or sucks, Buscher/Harris is still there and all the team lost is a couple million dollars. On the other hand, Gardenhire loves crappy players, especially when they are veterans who can play defense, so there's no guarantee he'll come out of the lineup no matter how bad he is.
(russadams from St. Paul, MN)
I think the Twins can't help themselves sometimes. Year in and year out, they bring in no-upside veterans, usually good with the glove and with lousy OBPs. Then they wonder why they missed the playoffs again. Crede almost works in a Garret Anderson, the-other-guys-might-be-worse sense, but that's the nicest thing I can say about the deal. Was there really no way to trade anything for Hank Blalock? (Joe Sheehan)
2008-10-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Prior to the Ryan Howard era, which players in baseball were most overrated?
(Reed from Des Moines)
Ichiro Suzuki, Derek Jeter, Garret Anderson. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-10-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Please tell me that no team will offer Garret Anderson a full time job next season. He is platoon at best. Might not even be good enough as a right handed platoon.
(Robert from LA)
He's never had big platoon splits, and in fact, has often been backwards. I wouldn't mind him as a PH/extra OF, probably in the NL, but there's no way I give him even 300 PA. He actually has a PH skill set. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-23 13:30:00 (link to chat)A's have lots of trade ammo, any chance they could get a Fielder or Holliday this offseason?
(eric from vegas)
To what end? The A's seem to have a lot of guys who can play on the corners. They need up-the-middle talent.

By the way, there's never, ever been a baseball team to get less out of plate discipline than the A's. They can walk, and that's all they can do. I've lost track of the number of times they've had the bases loaded, no one out, and get no or one runs while making three straight outs. They just can't *hit*. If any team needs some Garret Anderson clone, it's the A's. I can't believe I'm saying this. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi, Christina, love your writing... the queen of transaction analysis! Big question for you: Are the Angels due for a whopping regression next year? I'm mostly worried about their 2007 Diamondbacks-like pythagorean win-loss record. Their outfield in particular looks like it'll be a shambles. They'll be minus Juan Rivera (unless they make a serious effort to re-sign him), Vlad will undoubtedly be taken up on his team option, Garret Anderson will be gone, but Torii Hunter will be a year older (and he's already showing signs of decline), and the team will be carrying that godawful Gary Matthews, Jr. contract (barring a DFA). Plus, the bullpen will almost certainly be without K-Rod, and that leads to questions about the team's ability to shut down the opposition late in games with the implied roster reshuffling. Like the 2008 Snakes, it seems they could very quickly become a .500 (or worse) team in a hurry. Thoughts?
(scareduck from Somewhere west of Angel Stadium)
I think it makes for a very interesting question, because the factors you mention could lead to an expectation that it might take fewer than 90 wins to take next year's division crown, at which point you can put Oakland and Texas into the picture if they play for the near-term. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)OK, so I know lineup order doesn't matter all that much and yadda yadda, but will there be any point in this season that Casey Kotchman gets to bat higher in the lineup than the barely breathing corpse of Garret Anderson? And really, isn't Anderson, along with Matthews Jr., a huge part of the reason the Angels' run differential is so mediocore?
(deadmonkeyhead from CA)
Yes. We kill the Dodgers for Jones and Pierre, but the Angels are paying just as much money to bad outfielders. The Matthews contract was inexplicable, indefensible, and is now part of the Angels' problem. Free Kendry Morales! (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, thanks for chatting. Are there any of today's players that you expect to be overrated by the HOF voters, like Rice is?
(collins from greenville nc)
Man, good question. Obviously the way in which, say, Derek Jeter is overrated will carry over. Jeter is a Hall of Famer, a first-ballot guy, so it doesn't matter much.

On the margins...you know, I have to tell you that I clicked on this question, and now I can't come up with an answer. I don't know that this era has many marginal Hall of Famers who are likely to be *overrated* based on reputation or too-simple stats, such as RBI or wins.

Great question. I wish I had a better answer. The only one I can think of is maybe David Ortiz. Garret Anderson, I suppose, if he has a bounceback. (Joe Sheehan)

2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesI sort of like the idea of keeping Vlad and chasing after Tex, and with K-Rod, Garland, and Garret Anderson coming off of the books (assuming they ditch that insane $14 million option for '09), they should have the cash. The tough call to my way of thinking is whether or not to re-sign Figgy. (Christina Kahrl)
