2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was surprised I haven't heard more from you on the Philly roster construction - they seem tailor made to go with a 10 man staff and give Cholly all kind of platoon options to create some value in the line-up. Is it because their "adds" don't point that way, or are you just afraid to put your hopes in writing and see them dashed again?
(Brecken from Chicago)
I think it's a sign of the times that we ought to be able to celebrate the Phillies dialing down to six relievers this season, and making space for a sixth bench player. Of course, there's the bit about being careful what you wish for--if it's for Brian Bocock's benefit, that's sort of sad for everyone but Bocock. John Mayberry Jr., Jeff Larish... Robb Quinlan? A Larish/Quinlan matched set? See, part of the problem is that beyond notionally carring a RF platoon if Domonic Brown splits the job with Ben Francisco is that they'll have their lefty PH in Ross "Three Bricks Shy of a" Gload, and with that rotation, it isn't like they'll have a ton of PH assignments in the first place. They could use the 25th slot on just about anything, and whoever he is, he won't play much. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Worst full-time positional player to start the season: Luis Hernandez?
(Tim from DC)
Brian Bocock, who was one of the worst players in the California League a year ago.

The Giants are going to set some kind of record for Cha-Cha Bowls to go. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)what's the harm in starting Bocock? the giants aren't going to be good anyway, its not like he's taking them out of contention... maybe the giants think they see something that nobody else does (a la Dan Uggla two years ago).
(dave from DC)
He was one of the worst players in the California League, completely overmatched. He's probably not one of the 2000 best players in professional baseball. It's a ridiculous decision. Dan Uggla circa 2005 was Joe Morgan compared to Brian Bocock in 2007. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, when are you coming out to the city by bay??? How do you think the injuries to Frandsen, Durham and Vizquel will impact the lineup for the first month? Will we have the only team in MLB with a cleanup hitter, Molina, with less than 20hrs' and 80rbi's? Also, when you come, please bring us a major league lineup!
(Paul from San Fran)
Paul, I was just there as part of our book tour. On behalf of my partner in crime at our Alameda event two weeks back at Books Inc., I'd like to thank again the 50-plus people who showed. I speak for both of us when I say it was unfortunate we couldn't have kept it going for another hour or more.

As far as the injuries in the Giants infield, it's horrific. All the Rich Aurilia you can stand, Jose Castillo... Brian Bocock at short? It's the sort of infield Johnny LeMaster belongs in. (Christina Kahrl)
