DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)Pittsburgh, Milwaukee and Houston all have ugly first-base situations. Meanwhile Mike Carp projects for 350 AB's. Shouldn't the first two make serious offers for him --- and do you think they will?
(pobothecat from over there)
Excuse me for not being able to get it up for a #FreeMikeCarp movement. (Bret Sayre)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Think Mike Carp has figured it out and raised his level of performance permanently?
(John from CT)
Definitely raised it some and that ballpark has treated him well, but he's not a 1000+ OPS guy. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the Mariners trading Mike Carp, what are your thoughts on Justin Smoak? Any indication from what you're seeing/reading that he could break out any time soon?
(johnpatrickbail from Washington, DC)
Smoak seems like a guy who really knows *how* to play baseball well but can't actually do it. If that makes sense. I just don't think he is capable of hitting the ball hard regularly, and this'll be the last ST we'll pay attention to him. (Sam Miller)
2009-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)John, Have you heard anything on Russell Branyan being dealt? Small sample, but seems like Mike Carp could be ready. If they hold on to Branyan, do you think the M's will give Carp the job next year and DH Russell?
(Richard from Tacoma)
I don't think the Mariners will deal Branyan at this point because they feel they still have a chance to win the division. If they fall off the pace, I could see them trading him later this month or in August. However, it would not surprise me to see your scenario play out where Carp plays first and Branyan DHs next season with Griffey and Sweeney both moving on to retirement. (John Perrotto)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)Speaking as a Mets fan to an A's fan, what do you suppose it would realistically take to pry Huston Street from Billy Beane's far-from cold, dead hands? And do you think Street poses the best solution to the Mets bullpen woes (from here he seems to be a better solution than paying retail rates for K-Rod and/or Fuentes, or wishcasting on Putz to be healthy)?
(wrightfan5 from MD)
I think you can expect Beane to hold out for the best bits in the organization, but I really doubt that the Mets would deal Fernando Martinez for Street, and if I'm the A's, I don't need or want guys like Mike Carp. Danny Murphy's interesting, but basically this would have to involve a lot of low-level pitching to make it worthwhile. I suppose it depends on whether or not consecutive humiliations at the hands of the Phillies adds any additional impetus; at some point, Omar's going to be the guy taking the blame for failure. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)Hypothetical: Mets send Nick Evans, Mike Carp, and another prospect for Ibanez and Rhodes.
(Trade Offer Man from Trade Offer Land)
I think the Mets would be overpaying. I'd trade Evans OR Carp and a lesser prospect. (John Perrotto)
