BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)20 team dynasty league trade: Coco Crisp + Alfredo Simon + Joaquin Benoit for Desmond + Craig Gentry + Jean Machi, fair trade or obvious winner?
(Jon from Detroit)
Depends a lot on the situations. In a vacuum I like the Desmond-Gentry-Machi side more, but it very much depends on need in my opinion. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-11-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)I understand no qualifying offer for Jhonny Peralta, but Omar Infante and Joaquin Benoit? They need both guys and now if they don't sign they don't get a draft pick either.
(DetroitDale from Tallahassee (eternal spring training))
What relievers have ever made qualifying offer money? Rivera, and...Rivera. Papelbon, almost. Benoit is good, but he's not going to get that on the open market. I agree that there was a more compelling case to make for extending the QO to Infante. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Seems like there are a number of older "proven closers" on the free agent market with only a handful of opportunities out there- Joaquin Benoit, Grant Balfour, Joe Nathan, Fernando Rodney, Edward Mujica not to mention the injury reclamation projects like Brian Wilson, Ryan Madson and Joel Hanrahan. With the success that the Cardinals had moving Edward Mujica back two innings and then doing the same with Trevor Rosenthal and Carlos Martinez in the playoffs, are the days of spending big on closers finally over? Does a team like the Cubs with no great in house solution and a smart front office take advantage of the oversaturated market or pass on all those guys?
(Scott from LA)
We'll continue to see a wide variety of approaches to how teams handle the late innings. On the one hand there is certainly something to the idea that there are people who can close and people who can't. But you'd be hard pressed to get a closer enough innings in a season to justify paying big for them (unless, like the Yankees, Phillies, Red Sox, etc. you simply have the money to spend). St. Louis has such a glut of arms they have no reason to go outside the org, but for many teams there simply aren't good reasons to limit a young, high ceiling arm to a closer role. I imagine the Cubs will look for a reasonably priced arm that they think can handle the job, rather than committing more money over multiple years. (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bruce Rondon saves ___ number of games of the Tigers this year. Tru or false: Rondon has the team lead in saves among Tigers players this season?
(Mike from Dover, DE)
I like this question. I'll take a guess and say 15 games. I know Jim Leyland has been quoted as saying Rondon will be in the mix for the closer gig in Spring Training, so it's possible he breaks camp with the gig. I do think Joaquin Benoit could help ease Rondon into the closer job if they go that route as well. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-09-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)Any explanation on why Rays always to get hits on pick-ups and trades that don't seem great/good at on-set and turn into gems in long-run? Fernando Rodney and Jeff Keppinger are doing quite well in unexpected roles for them. It seems Rays always find gold in what now should be called "The Yearly Rays Reliever Reclamation Project"(Al Reyes, Juan Cruz, Joaquin Benoit, Rafael Soriano, Kyle Farnsworth, Fernando Rodney)
(jlarsen from chicago)
I think some of it is just great big-league scouting and statistical analysis, but a lot of it is trial and error, too. The Rays are set up in such a way that they HAVE to sign a bunch of those guys, and while a lot of them will work because the Rays are good at what they do, a lot will fail because they're inherently gambles. They haven't had a lot of luck with veteran catchers the last couple years, and there was that whole Pat Burrell thing. (Bill Parker)
2012-08-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Closer Carousel time: 20*35 league, all players have the same salary, how would you rank them? Luke Gergerson, Alfredo Aceves, Sergio Romo, Joaquin Benoit?
(Keeper from Deep)
It's still really early, but I'll go Benoit, Aceves, Gregerson, Romo. (Derek Carty)
2012-08-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Odds Bruce Rondon enters 2013 as the Tigers' closer. Joaquin Benoit seems to love the 8th. Brayan Villarreal a possibility?
(RationalSportsFan from detroit)
I'd be shocked to see him open camp in a closer role, or even in the big leagues. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jay! I'll be having some very traditional Uruguayan lunch by the time of the chat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asado) but I wanted to drop by, say hi, and ask a very profound question: if I, being 10000 miles away, can see through at least half of the childish mental mistakes players/managers/GMs make daily, how come these still happen? Is the next market inefficiency to cut down on all those Caught Stealing third for the 3rd out / not using your best reliever in the highest leverage situations / keeping 'veterans' in the roster instead of giving promising young players a chance / etc.?
(Guillermo from Montevideo, Uruguay)
Hey Guillermo! Always good to hear from Uruguay's number one BP fan, and man, I'm jealous with regards to lunch (Uruguay is a carnivore's paradise, for those who are unaware).

I think some of the mistakes you talk about (caught stealing for the third out) are ones that will always be with us, but the game does slowly evolve, and we've seen something of a movement where certain veterans have trouble finding jobs because of a general trend towards younger players - take the absence of Vlad Guerrero, Hideki Matsui, and Johnny Damon (though he finally signed with Cleveland) from rosters after competent but hardly stellar seasons.

Sooner or later, some team is going to get more daring with their reliever usage, though it's worth noting that in some places like Cleveland (Vinny Pestano), Detroit (Joaquin Benoit), Los Angeles (Kenley Jansen) and Washington (Tyler Clippard) teams already have their best relievers in non-closing situations that are often higher-leverage. It happens more often than you think. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any picks for non-closers worth taking for pure K/WHIP/ERA/maybe win-stealing upside? Basically Tyler Clippard types...
(Mark from Cleveland)
Kenley Jansen #1, but his save upside will make him expensive. Clippard is good. Mike Adams, Sergio Romo (if they let him face more lefties this year and he gets more than 40 IP), Jonny Venters, Hong-Chih Kuo (if healthy), Joaquin Benoit, Grant Balfour (if he doesn't close), Matt Thornton/Addison Reed (whoever doesn't close). (Derek Carty)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which set up man is most likely to assume closing duties in 2012? Scott Downs (Walden-shaky performance) Joel Peralta (Farny-shaky elbow) Joaquin Benoit (Valverde-shaky law of averages)
(PepeShady from StPaul)
I'd bank on Benoit, because he's one with the true closer stuff, and yeah, I don't trust Valverde. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given his injury history, is it better for a club to invest a couple of years in Joaquin Benoit or should a club scour the scrap heap and try to find the "next Benoit" who is ready to have a good year? (or do both?!)
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
It really depends on the team. Benoit's injury history obviously makes him risky, but his crazy good performance last year means there is a lot of upside. I think he will probably be priced about right, meaning that for a team who wants the upside he provides and has a good medical staff, he will be worth his cost. Teams a little further out of the playoff picture might be better off looking for someone else to buy low on, if they think they can. (Matt Swartz)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of contract does Joaquin Benoit get in the off season? His situation seems so unique that I have little idea of what he gets, but I think he could be a nice bargain for a team looking for a closer.
(Moneyball16 from Calgary)
Even after you look at his adjusted ERA rather than his actual, he's been lights out. The peripherals are just out of control, with over 11 K per nine and under two walks per nine. I would expect more walks out of him next year, but not so much that it keeps him from being super effective out there, but I don't see anyone handing him a huge contract right away either. He's still not a Proven Closer, after all /sarcasm (Marc Normandin)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)For fantasy purposes, anybody not getting saves this year that you could see getting saves in 2011?
(Marky P. from SoCal)
If the aforementioned Joaquin Benoit gets a gig, there's one. If the Sox move Papelbon, Bard will be the closer. If the Padres move Heath Bell, that's going to be Mike Adam's job. No idea what the situation is with the Mets for next year, but between Parnell and Takahashi they may have some in-house options if they choose that route. (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)Last one for my great debate, but saying that the Rays have no chance because their rotation is nowhere near Boston's or New York's. However, I can say I wouldn't be the only one who'd pick the Rays' bullpen as a whole and defensive team put on the field over both the Yankees and Red Sox. Even with the addition of Beltre and Scutaro, Rays IF Fielding still looks to be better overall than Boston. Doubt Boston's OF can beat the talent in Crawford/Upton/Joyce(who was one of the best OFers defensively las year).
(jlarsen from Chicago)
I don't think the Rays have no chance. I think you're right about defense, particularly in the infield (both Yankees and Red Sox look to have good defensive outfields also). The bullpen debate is closer, but this is probably the best bullpen the Rays have ever had. I thought the Joaquin Benoit pickup was neat. I'll give the Rays a 15% chance of winning the division. (Tommy Bennett)
2008-03-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Joe -- Always great to see your name on the chat list. Two closer questions: Do you think Gagne holds on to the job in Milwaukee all year long? And how much confidence do you have in CJ Wilson in Texas? Thanks a lot.
(mikeduin from Seattle)
Those might be the two shakiest spots in the game. With the Brewers having a fairly deep bullpen, but containing almost exclusively one-inning guys, I'd love to see them just abandon the closercentric pen completely and use Gagne, Riske, Shouse and Turnbow as situations warrant. I do think non-Gagne relievers will pick up 15 saves, although I can't say which ones, when or why.

I don't see Wilson being effective enough against RHBs to hold the closer job. Joaquin Benoit will eventually take over. (Joe Sheehan)
