BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I like circles, mostly because in order to score a run you have to finish where you begin. What players on other teams that started with another team or another other team do you see coming back to their old team to complete the circle of their careers? Any chance Eric Hinske returns to Toronto?
(Abu from Kenya)
I think Hinske is done playing. I wouldn't be shocked if he gets into coaching or some other front-office position. Always had a good reputation as a clubhouse guy. (R.J. Anderson Trade Deadline Wrap Chat)
2012-12-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)I noticed that Eric Hinske has signed with Arizona. Since he has, at best, marginal fielding and baserunning value and hasn't hit for 2 years, why would anyone sign him?
(Steve N from Delaware)
-handed hitters can always land a job somewhere, and he signed for over a million bucks. That's practically a rounding error for a big-league club. Could also be the kind of guy you want in your clubhouse, good influence on younger players etc. I don't see it as a bad signing at all. If he's just awful in Spring, you let him walk and you're out $1M. NBD. (Ian Miller)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat) Any chance George Constanza is the Braves 4th OF and steals 25?
(Tony Danza from Italy)
Tough to bank on 25 steals from a 4th OF, and manager Fredi Gonzalez says he might only be the 5th OF (the team has a more potent Eric Hinske bat around plus Matt Diaz). As a 5th OF, I think you're looking at more of 10 SB, but he does have good speed and could steal more with some injuries or good play that nets him more PT. (Derek Carty)
2009-02-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)I see you mentioned the Ensberg signing above. It's another Andrew Friedman low-risk/high reward potential signing. Did anybody see Carlos Pena coming, Eric Hinske? Ty Wiggington? If it works out great, if not they still need somebody to play 3B in Durham.
(Tommy from Draysbay)
Agreed. (John Perrotto)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-10-27 16:30:00World Series Game Fivetercet (Toronto ) wonders, "What do you guys think of Tampa's RF mess? Do you like how Maddon's changed RF every game or should he stick to one? Id stick Rocco Baldelli in RF most of the games if I was the manager."

I would have liked to have seen some sort of memory of how much Eric Hinske mattered to this team over the course of the season. Gross really didn't perform all that well, and he really seems to be the ultimate compromise solution in light of Hinske's lead-footedness and the persistent durability concerns with the likes of Floyd and Baldelli. (Christina Kahrl)
