BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Andrew Bailey just blew a save. Is he in trouble? Who do the Red Sox go to now? Back to Tazawa?
(Brian from Boston)
He's terrible. Absolutely spec on Taz.

----

PRE-BLOWN SAVE (probably like 5 hours ago):

John (Toronto): Sorry I didn't clarify...Andrew Bailey
Paul Sporer: Oh, well ya he's a walking injury. I'm definitely concerned. (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)I just dropped Andrew Bailey for Yuni because Neil Walker is on the DL. I feel like I lost a piece of my soul. Where's the redemption?
(Joseph from Seattle)
Drugs. (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you expect Andrew Bailey to do a better job as interim closer than Mitchell Boggs is doing in St. Louis?
(bobbygoode from Santa Monica CA)
Yes, but that's not saying much considering that Boggs doesn't look like the closer any more in STL. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)How do I value Addison Reed if I just started a dynasty rebuild? I know closers should be the first thing to go in a rebuild, but I can't help but believe he's relatively stable and likely to help me when I compete again in 2-3 years. Thanks
(JoeTinker from Chicago)
Here is a list of all closers who recorded 25 or more saves in 2010: Brian Wilson (48), Heath Bell (47), Rafael Soriano (45), Joakim Soria (43), Matt Capps (42), Neftali Feliz (40), Francisco Cordero (40), Carlos Marmol (38), Billy Wagner (37), Jonathan Papelbon (37), Kevin Gregg (37), Mariano Rivera (33), David Aardsma (31), Juan Oviedo (30), Bobby Jenks (27), Ryan Franklin (27), Brad Lidge (27), Jose Valverde (26), Francisco Rodriguez (25) and Andrew Bailey (25). (Bret Sayre)
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina, I look at Oakland's line-up without anyone I'd like on my fantasy team and can't understand how Pecota has them playing 500 ball. What are your thoughts on the A's?
(lennyd from Portland)
Either you don't have a lot of teams in your league, or you're very picky, or maybe you have no use for steals; while I'm not wild about an outfield with Coco Crisp and Rajai Davis in it as everyday players, they will snag bags. For pitching, whether you're in a keeper league or not, just go grab Brett Anderson. Like steals, saves are a commodity you should want, and Andrew Bailey's the real deal. Position-related supply/demand issues might encourage you to snag Kurt Suzuki or Mark Ellis. Basically, it's going to be a better real-world ballclub than a generator of traditional category fantasy stars. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-06 13:30:00 (link to chat)Elvis Andrus has been worth 2.9 WAR while anchoring a Ranger defense that completely transformed. How do you put Andrew Bailey (2.4 WAR) ahead of him in the ALROY race?
(Conjunction from Dallas)
The great thing about the rookie classes in both leagues is that you can go a number of different ways with your picks. I like Andrus a lot and I know I certainly left myself open for criticism by not selecting him. However, I thought Bailey was outstanding all year in a role that many veterans have a difficult time handling. It's an interesting debate, which is one of the reasons we all love baseball so much. (John Perrotto)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the CYA (Greinke) and the MVP (Mauer) awards pretty well settled who do you have for RoY??
(kcboomer from kc)
I'm sort of ambivalent. I imagine it will be Gordon Beckham, but I feel like you could make just as good a case for Andrew Bailey or Jeff Neimann. Nolan Reimold had a good year too, and I'm sure that some people will claim that Elvis Andrus helped the Rangers accomplish... accomplish... Oh, never mind. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Andrew Bailey for ROY?
(Drew W from NoVA)
It's going to be a bit of a goofy class in the AL, ain't it? Bailey's got a few things going for him, but so do a few others. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Elvis Andrus, Gordon Beckham, Nolan Reimold, maybe Rickey Romero, or Andrew Bailey...who you got as AL RoY?
(Lincoln from Dallas)
Beckham, who just recently passed Andrus. It's very close.

I really like Gordon Beckham. He could win an MVP as a shortstop. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Andrew Bailey or Scott Downs have the skills to hold down end-game duties, or will their closer jobs ultimately settle with more talented pitchers?
(cjkrawczyk from Milwaukee)
I'm one of those people who thinks either have the talent, because while I'd agree with the comment that some people can *not* close (a nation turns its eyes to Ron Davis), there are many who can, with or without fun facial hair or choice theme music. (Christina Kahrl)
