BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which pitchers stand out as personal favorites that never panned out like you thought they would?
(PepeShady from St Paul)
Bret Saberhagen. Kevin Appier. I was sure both of them would be Hall of Famers. Though if Jack Morris gets in, I may start pushing their candidacies a little harder. Apparently you never know. They can get back on the ballot, right?

More recently, I had high hopes for Brett Anderson. I guess he may yet fulfill those. Erik Bedard...I sense a theme. I've been a big Gavin Floyd fan for a while, and though he's been good, he's never broken through to great. On a much lower tier, Chad Gaudin. (Mike Fast)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Gavin Floyd or Scott Baker(ROS)?
(MT from Boston, MA)
Close, but Iíll take Baker by a hair or two. (Derek Carty)
2011-05-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)Kyle Drabek is now starting for the Blue Jays tomorrow - what should I expect from him?
(kevinorris from St. Petersburg)
The Rays have had their troubles against good curveballing righties this year - particularly Phil Humber and Gavin Floyd. Drabek lacks the command of those two, but I expect he'll get 6-7 strikeouts tomorrow but he's going up against David Price who has been extremely successful against the Jays over the past two seasons so looking for a win is going to a lot to ask. (Jason Collette (note time))
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rick Porcello -- can he become a third ace in the Tigers rotation, or does the last two years lower his ceiling somewhat?
(Jim Osterberg from Detroit Rock City)
I have to be careful here. I was once assaulted with a barrage of mean-spirited questions when I said that I thought Kershaw would become an ace and Porcello would disappoint about two years ago I think. In short, no, I don't think he will become a third ace. I think he could be a really good #4-type pitcher with his current repertoire and "stuff" but he doesn't strike anyone out, and I haven't seen enough to indicate that is going to change moving forward. This doesn't mean I think he is bad, or that he couldn't become better, but that I still just do not see it yet. The same thing happened with Gavin Floyd, though, who looked a bit lost before turning it on. Maybe Porcello follows a similar path. (Eric Seidman)
2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)In an OPB/holds redraft league, would you drop Frank Fransisco for Soto or Gavin Floyd? I have McCann, but having Soto for off days could be groovy.
(Will from Mactaquac)
Isn't there some Koyie Hill drama going on in Chicago right now, or did Sweet Lou already drop that BS and put Soto back where he belongs? (Marc Normandin)
2010-04-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)How often do we ever see a pitcher 'work on a new pitch' in spring training and see it actually pay off long term? I am thinking of Mike Pelfrey, who seems to be missing a lot of bats with his split-change this year. If he can get the K rate to around 7 per 9, he is a completely different pitcher.
(J.P. from Hartford)
In Chicago most White Sox pitchers are taught cutters, which helped turn Gavin Floyd and John Danks into legitimate front-mid rotation hurlers. That seems to be more organizational philosophy than, say, Cole Hamels working to learn a cutter this off-season. In St. Louis, Dave Duncan works his magic with sequencing and location moreso than new pitches, but to the same effect. I agree that we don't hear about true success stories with these newer pitches as much as the failures, but Big Pelf wouldn't be alone if his split-change remains effective. (Eric Seidman)
2009-02-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Homer Bailey going to accomplish much as a Red, or like Goldstein said, will he find his success in another organization?
(birkem3 from Dayton, OH)
Much like Gavin Floyd, he needs to move along to another organization. If I were a GM of a lower-tier team like the Pirates, I'd trade for the kid and take my shot on getting a high payoff. (John Perrotto)
2008-10-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's with the diss on Sonnanstine? He's 1-0 against the White Sox this year and Gavin Floyd kinda gives up HRs...
(Jake from DRays Bay)
Did you really just cite a 1-0 record against a team as evidence? Really? Because I could point out the 5.40 ERA against the White Sox this year. Then we'd both be ridiculous.

Sonnanstine gives up contact, which is suboptimal against a team with the Sox' power at the Cell. I'd rather have Floyd tonight. That isn't canon, just my take heading into the game. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-08-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Both. After Sabathia and Mussina I have Gavin Floyd and these 2.
(JMan from TP)
Yipes. Keeping Moose, really? He's an extra walk per nine away from exploding all over the place. I'd go with Marcum for the strikeouts, since both defenses are pretty much even. (Marc Normandin)
2008-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)How worried should the White Sox be about their over-achieving pitching staff? Somewhat worried or the-crap-is-about-to-hit-the-fan worried?
(Sky from The Roc, NY)
Well, I think Gavin Floyd is going to turn into a pumpkin at some point. And who knows what you're going to get out of Jose Contreras. But Danks, Buehrle and Vazquez ought to be solid -- and Vazquez has UNDERachieved -- and I like this Clayton Richard kid they're calling up to be a reasonable #4 his first time around the league. (Nate Silver)
2008-06-17 15:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the Indians and Tigers playoff chances going forward? The Sox are anywhere from 55-70 percent favorites from the 3 BP odds reports. That sounds accurate to you?
(colintj from a2)
Given where those three teams are right now and the underlying causes for how they got there, I think that sounds about right. Cleveland has lost Jake Westbrook for the season, they've lost Victor Martinez for awhile, Travis Hafner has joined the ranks of the undead, and Rafael Betancourt is looking pretty clammy and monosyllabic as well. Detroit is out Bonderman already, the rest of their rotation is a mess, we don't know how well their bullpen can hold up, and they have to dig their way out of a sizeable hole. Meanwhile in Chicago we've seen guys like Carlos Quentin, Alexei Ramirez, Gavin Floyd, and John Danks start to deliver on their promise even as the offense in general has underachieved. The Sox lead isn't insurmountable but given the run differentials and the injury situations I'd place my nickel on them. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-04-25 15:00:00 (link to chat)White Sox: Fluke or for real?
(Izzy from DC)
I'm not a huge believer in the White Sox, but it's clear that at least in the early going, two things are going very right. First, you've got the bouncebacks from Joe Crede and Carlos Quentin that have helped resurrect that offense while marginalizing some rather unproductive players. Second, them Gavin Floyd and John Danks appearing to have finally put it together. These were well-regarded pitching prospects who've taken a long time to live up to their billing, but with a good coach like Don Cooper it shouldn't be terribly surprising to see them make the kind of nonlinear jumps that pitchers do when they finally Get It Together. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Read Day of Battle yet? I thought Army at Dawn was top-notch. Shouldn't Kenny Williams be looking to add something to his starting pitching depth? I know the pickings are slim, and I hold out hope for Danks being useful at the end of the rotation, but I'm not drinking the Gavin Floyd kool-aid.
(ChuckR from Addison, IL)
Yeah, I knocked off Atkinson's latest a few months back. Good stuff, an Atkinson did a good job of treating the mystery of Mark Clark in sufficient depth.

Like you, I think the rotation isn't there to play a plausible dark horse. It's possible that Floyd or Danks deliver, but I just have a hard time believing that all of them will, on top of a comeback by Jose Contreras... it isn't like the Indians and Tigers have anything like the same obvious weaknesses. (Christina Kahrl)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesBartlet leads off the third with a single, and strangely, the crowd does not chant "MVP!, MVP!".

Look, it's just a ridiculously silly arguement. I don't care how good the defense is (and it's good, but hardly mind-blowing). You can't be the MVP with a .690 OPS.

As I type this, Iwamura triples in Bartlett to make it 3-2 White Sox and Vasquez looks to be having one of his patented single-inning blow ups. It's the kind of thing Gavin Floyd used to do back in the Philly days to drive them nuts -- look like an ace one inning, and a guy who couldn't get AA hitters out the next. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-09-29 10:30:00Tigers/White Sox Play-In Game"nschaef (Atlanta): What sort of pitch count do you think Gavin Floyd will be on in this situation?"

No number, but I do think Guillen would like to do here what he did in the last game in Minnesota--only use Thornton and Jenks. That could be as early as the sixth, but given the strike zone and the Tigers--remember when this team was going to score 1000 runs?--he'll make it to the seventh. (Joe Sheehan)
