BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Twenty team keeper league. Ian Desmond for Stephen Drew and milb picks 21 and 29 in the upcoming draft? Who wins?
(Allan from Toronto)
Desmond, easy. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)In 2015/16, Javier Baez is playing [insert position here]?
(Josh from Wrigleyville)
Second, short and third. I know Cubs fans are super excited about the future, and I would be too. There's not much else to look forward to. But this need to pigeon hole Baez is completely unnecessary. The fact that he can play all three infield positions is awesome. The important part is that he'd going to play every day. His defensive flexibility gives the Cubs a chance to move the pieces around once more and more of them get to the majors. I hope he plays all three in the majors and I'll bet he sees time at all of them this year. Remember when we needed answers about where Xander Bogaerts was going to play when all of the factors were things that had nothing to do with him (resigning of Stephen Drew, Middlebrooks' development, etc.) Same thing with Baez. He can play all three. Which one he ends up at has nothing to do with him. It's about the other players around him. (Jeff Moore)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you expect Stephen Drew to find a home soon?
(Alex from Anaheim)
I really hope so, it's a bummer passing him on my way to work in the morning. (Bret Sayre)
2014-01-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm sick of waiting for the Jays to do something and I'm getting depressed. Please tell me all the wonderful things they are going to do to make a playoff-calibre team.
(Matt from BC, Canada)
Well, they might sign a starter, or they might sign Stephen Drew. Jon Heyman pointed out that because they have two protected picks, they may have made the strategic decision to wait out the market and try to sign someone saddled with a qualifying offer at a discount later in the winter. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-12-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you see Stephen Drew ending up? Do you think the Red Sox would be better off with Drew/Bogaerts or Bogaerts/Middlebrooks on the left side?
(Jim from Boston)
good questions. In terms of on the field right now, I'd say Drew/Bogaerts, but the organizational plan and fit, along with their expectations for Middlebrooks, are certainly enough to make the other choice work. So, given the situation, the Sox current opportunity to compete, I expect them to bring him back (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which 3B has the better 2014, offensively: Middlebrooks, Moustakas, Dominguez? Thanks.
(Dan from Idaho)
Middlebrooks, but how much he plays will depend on whether or not the Red Sox resign Stephen Drew. (Jeff Moore)
2013-12-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's one move (trade, FA, whatever) you'd like to see happen?
(Travie from Gym Class)
Hm. I've had Cincy signing Stephen Drew stuck in my head this morning. I guess that'll do. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-10-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)I have Bogaerts and Wong sitting on my minor league roster. What is the likelihood that I can depend on those guys as everyday middle infielders for next season? Do I need to sign a couple of placeholders to bridge the gap to 2015?
(AnthopoJays from TX)
It seems pretty likely that Xander Bogaerts is going to start next year. Stephen Drew isn't coming back, and even if Will Middlebrooks isn't finished, Bogaerts has a clear path to playing time. Kolten Wong is more of a mystery. David Freese could be non-tendered I suppose, but it seems more likely that he'll get a contract. That leaves Matt Carpenter at second base and leaves Wong out of a job. Sure, I suppose the club could try him at short, but I don't see that happening. These situations tend to have a way of resolving themselves, but there are no guarantees with Wong. If it's not too expensive, I'd grab one of those placeholders. (Mike Gianella)
2013-10-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do the St. Louis Cardinals target when they inevitably trade a young arm for a SS and who do they part with? Is Joe Kelly enough to get someone like Didi Gregorious? They aren't going to do something crazy like deal Carlos Martinez, are they?
(Scott from LA)
They don't necessarily have to deal a young arm for a shortstop though, right? They could, of course, but they could also sign Stephen Drew who very likely won't be back in Boston next season as his spot will be taken by Xander Bogaerts.

But, if the Cardinals do decide to do that, you could do much worse than trading a bullpen arm for a starting position player. Bullpen arms, even ones that throw 100, continue to be over-valued, certainly by fans, and likely by teams, if not to the same extent.

(That's not to say Martinez will be in the pen forever, just a general comment on the value of bullpen guys) (Matthew Kory)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)The As moved quickly on to their backup plan after losing out on Stephen Drew, signing import Hiroyuki Nakajima to take over at shortstop. What do you know about him?
(Joel from Indianapolis )
Only his stats from BRef, which is to say nothing. I'm sure our buddy Mr. McLeod would be the go-to there. I'm interested to learn more myself, but as it stands he's new to me. (Paul Sporer)
2011-10-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Not exactly a prospect question, but still a scouting one: Stephen Drew's production has been significantly lower than his tools would lead one to project, right? If so, do you put that all on makeup or do some guys just never quite put it together?
(Jake from Kalamazoo)
Hard to say; depends on the player. Makeup might play a role, or perhaps the tools were overrated in the first place. Again, its hard to say without taking a focused look at the player. I can't speak to Drew's makeup. (Jason Parks)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 10 team mixed league I've got great depth at scarce positions with V-Mart and Russell Martin at C and Tulo and Stephen Drew at SS but a few nagging holes in the pitching staff. I can only play 1 utiliity guy so if everyone's healthy at least one of those 4 is on the bench every week. Should I think about trading 1 of them to upgrade my 2 start starter/flavor of the week at SP and Hope-this-guy-vultures-a-save-or-2 at RP, or hold on to my depth and enjoy being able to survive injuries to key positions?
(buddons42 from Detroit)
It's a 10-team mixed, so you should be aggressive. It's not like you will run out of options to pick up, and you don't want to burn innings you could be using because of injuries. (Marc Normandin)
2011-03-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)In a NFBC 15 Team (Mixed) format how would you approach the limited SS position?
(bfitzge3 from Upstate NY)
Obviously getting Hanley or Tulo in the early going would be ideal, but I'm leery of the Reyes/Jeter/Rollins group this year for various reasons... too much uncertainty with all three. I'd rather wait a few more rounds and try for a Stephen Drew or Alexei Ramirez, or go a little deeper for Ian Desmond. (Cory Schwartz)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yes, local consensus at the time was that the Padres drafted Bush to avoid the Boras clients (Weaver, Stephen Drew).
(formersd from San Diego)
It's a good thing the Padres do well in the later rounds of the draft. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Stephen Drew ever have his post-hype breakout season? Or he destined for a .260 TAv in 2011 and beyond?
(Andrew from Toronto)
I'm starting to think this is who he is. The power hasn't really been there outside of 2008, and he should at least have inflated stats because of his home park. (Marc Normandin)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've been offered Stephen Drew and Troy Glaus for Zobrist. I've needed a 1B since Morales went down. Does 2nd half Glaus = 1st half and any word on Drew's knee?
(Mark from Milwaukee)
Is this a keeper league, or single-season? (Marc Normandin)
2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Middle of the pack in saves with lots of room for upward movement in NL only 12 team, top 3 in 4 of 5 offensive categories. Trade Stephen Drew for H. Street? Drew would not be a save player for me.
(PF from Loop)
I hate the idea of trading that much talent for a closer. If you really need the saves and have another SS, it can work, I'm just leery of that sort of thing in general. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-19 15:30:00 (link to chat)Trade Stephen Drew, Austin Jackson and Budd Norris for David Freese, Scott Downs and CJ Wilson? In a dynasty league and have no relief pitching
(Jquinton82 from NY)
I don't usually answer fantasy questions, but you do know that the Rangers are going to try Wilson in the rotation this spring, right? Even if he does go back to the pen, seems to me you're overpaying. (Steven Goldman)
2008-04-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you expect from Stephen Drew this year? He went from super prospect to disappointment last year; can we expect a move back towards respectability this year? .280/.350/.450 seem reasonable?
(danbuttolph from Denver)
I wanted to draft Drew as my SS, but he was snagged before I got to that point in my roster construction. I'm a fan, and think last year was an adjustment year for him. I can see him beating out your forecast for him in the power department, either because of his park or because he's good enough to do so. (Marc Normandin)
2008-03-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Better offensive numbers this year, Stephen Drew or Yunel Escobar?
(Alberto from Boston)
Aargh. PECOTA says Drew. I'm not a big believer in either, but I think that Drew is more likely to go up and Escobar more likely to go down, so let's go with Drew. (Steven Goldman)
2008-03-18 17:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jim, who's more likely to produce a better year, Alex Gordon or Stephen Drew?
(Otocinclus from NYC)
Propositions like this are at the very root of my 2008 Prospectus Matchups contest. Going by EqA, independent of position, I'm going with Gordon on this one. By the time all was said and done at the end of 2007, he had climbed to about league average. Drew might get there this year (about .260), but .285 sounds more like Gordon's level in 2008. (Jim Baker)
2008-03-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Stephen Drew finally breaks out this year? I was really high on him until his brutal performance last season. He did give me some hope with his playoff performance.
(Phil from Scottsdale)
there are at least 15 SS I take before him in a mixed draft this year. (Mike Siano)
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Gauntlet Legends ROCKS! "Green Warrior... Needs food... NOW!" Gotta love that! If you were offered Shane Victorino for Stephen Drew and A McCutcheon in a 5x5 keeper league, what would you do? What about Ed Encarnacion instead of Victorino?
(DILLS from Chicago)
Gauntlet is coming out on Nintendo DS, and IGN's headline was something like, "DS Needs Food Badly!" What a great headline.

It depends on how thin the rest of your minor league roster is honestly. Do you have other players down there, or is he necessary for your team's future? (Marc Normandin)
2008-02-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)My BP08 arrived while I was reading this chat. It looks great--thanks for a great product, as usual. Stephen Drew--after noting that his walk rate was among the top shortstops last year, I thought BP would like him for 2008. The book blurb is kind of down on him. What do you think about Drew?
(jlewando from DC)
Glad you got the book, sir or madam. On Drew, the walk rate is certainly better than not having it, but the other aspects of his season were pretty forgettable. A .236 EqA is, to borrow a popular congressional phrase, what it is, and as the comment details, there are reasons to think that it's not totally out of line with what our expectations should have been. Add in that the fellow turns 25 in just a couple of weeks, and we have a pretty good chance at being disappointed here. Let's hope we're wrong on that one. (Steven Goldman)
2008-01-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for your great work. What type of numbers do you see Stephen Drew putting up this year? Does .270/.360/.450 sound reasonable or a pipe dream? And what are your thoughts on Donnie Murphy, assuming he gets at-bats with the A's?
(Dennis from LA)
I'm not much of a Murphy fan. I think he's a decent bench player at best, and if he's playing every day for you, that means something, somewhere has gone horribly wrong. I'm very, very optimistic still about Stephen Drew's future, and I don't think that line is a pipe dream in the least. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for your great work. Do you think Stephen Drew can be a consistent .280/.370/.450 player over the next few years? And what is the best book on the Pacific War you've read? I know you talked about "Shattered Sword" last time. Any other recommendations? Thanks!
(Dennis from LA)
It's plausible, but that's because the park would help, and I'm still a bit of a skeptic where Drew's concerned. Yes, his debut in '06 and his Cubs-wrecking October were impressive; it's just everything else about his career as a pro that's been a disappointment.

Hrm... I've pretty much always favored the ETO in my leisure reading, beyond reading the books that gave me any insight to my grandfather's service as a carrier pilot. Something that would cover China, Burma, New Guinea, the Japanese strategic decision-making... I've read a few, but not sure if there's the "one" that I could recommend. (Christina Kahrl)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableJon Garland's out of the game, down 6-0. His curveball wasn't sharp (he gave up a two-run single to Montero with it, as well as the crushed homer by Mark Reynolds) but the defense cost him, too.

Stephen Drew hit a ball off of an outcropping in deep center, bounced into left field away from Tony Gwynn and turned into an inside-the-park homer. Tough day, but he wasn't six runs through four innings bad. (Marc Normandin)
