BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)So discuss the systematic and comprehensive anti-Whitesox bias at BPro. I'm not from Chicago, so from a distance I just assumed it was all a simple Ozzie Guillen thing, but 2013 is shedding new light. Elucidate.
(Cris E from St Paul, MN)
I thought Dave Cameron did a good job of explaining why the White Sox might have outperformed their projections on the whole over the past several seasons. I've written about their ability to keep their players healthy. That, plus a little luck and the usual variation in team performance explains the apparent trend satisfactorily to me. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)What baseball team lends itself most poetically to the myth of Icarus? Prometheus? What baseball coach is the most like Willy Loman? Is baseball tragedy or comedy?
(BIG CHUD from miracletown)
The Rangers are Icarus. They've flown really close to the sun the last 2 seasons and they've gotten burned.

Curt Flood was Prometheus.

Ozzie Guillen is a loud-mouthed Willy Loman with a funny accent. (Ian Miller)
2012-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to take a flyer on a SP for next year would you rather it be Travis Wood or Carlos Zambrano?
(cubfan131 from Iowa)
Depends on the context. If I really, really needed the innings, I guess I'd go for the non-insane pitcher.

You have to look at a guy like Carlos Zambrano as a lottery ticket. The historical record says he has everything you want from a above-average starter--he even rakes--but heads could explode in that Miami clubhouse this year with some of the people you've got in there.

What do you think of Ozzie Guillen? If he's Captain Shellenburger, you go with Zambrano and cross your fingers. If he's Captain Schettino, don't waste your time.

Also, please write your congressperson about SOPA/PIPA so I can use Wikipedia links for non-baseball stuff. -- Dave (Best of BP with Ben and Dave)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Last season, several managers eschewed the traditional closer role at times and played matchups (see Cox, Bobby). Why haven't teams like the White Sox, who certainly have the arms, done likewise?
(Darryl from Clutchville)
Realistically because a lot of teams are run by older-fashioned baseball men. That isn't a knock on them by any means, but I think someone like Ozzie Guillen probably just feels more comfortable with a go-to guy than an array of different pitchers. Then again, if anyone is going to shift how that spot is used right now, it's Ozzie Guillen. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)Ozzie Guillen re: the 'privileges of Asian vs. Latio players. Just crazy Ozzie, or does he have a point?
(ChuckR from Addison, IL)
I can't help but wonder if what Ozzie says gets discounted because it's him saying it, but it's hard to look at some of the bells and whistles attached to some of the Japanese players' contracts and not think Ozzie's exactly right. That said, the vehicles for getting Japanese players stateside involve a considerably different negotiating process; it's not the fault of the Japanese for working the system. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ken, who you think are the best 3 managers in baseball?
(Zooey from LA)
Great question, and frankly, one I haven't really thought much about. Win-Loss records have so much more to do with the talent a manager's given than any innate skill the manager has. Was Joe Torre truly a great manager when he was in NYC? I can't say that I know. I guess if I were running a team I'd do my best to sign Tony LaRussa, assuming that Dave Duncan comes with him. My other two would be Bobby Cox and Ozzie Guillen, who never gets enough credit for how well he manages a pitching staff. Maybe I'm just voting for interesting managers! (Ken Funck)
2010-02-25 15:00:00 (link to chat)Ozzie Guillen now has a twitter acount... how much trouble will he get into and how entertaining will it be for all of us?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
It's going to be beautiful while it lasts but Ken Williams is already anger with Ozzie about this and I imagine he make him stop pretty soon. (John Perrotto)
2010-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)I don't think you've interview Ozzie Guillen, so I apologize if you have, but what on earth would you ask him?
(Scott from Chicago)
I'd ask(ed) him this:

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=8071&nocache=1263275680&sessionstatus=notloggedin&mode=login (David Laurila)
2010-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the reasoning behind Ozzie Guillen choosing to go without a real DH? Is he planning on moving Quentin there but he doesn't want to talk about it yet? What gives?
(Cris E from St Paul, MN)
Employing a full-time DH has its cost, not only in payroll but also in the ability to give your position players - particularly those that might be a bit banged up - some rest without losing their bats from the lineup. Not having a full-time DH gives your lineup more flexibility.

Now, as to the particulars of the White Sox lineup, I'd have brought Jim Thome back, because I see a whole lot of holes all over the place. And note with no small amount of glee that Andruw Jones is projected to hit .219/.318/.389. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)If the White Sox win 73 games as predicted, Should Kenny Williams, Ozzie Guillen or both be shown the door?
(jlarsen from Chicago)
No. With Ozzie, it doesn't seem like the players have tired of him. I wonder if that's a function of the turnover or if he really doesn't wear on his team. With Williams, he'd be one of the guys I would interview if I owned a team. He doesn't care what PECOTA says, and shouldn't ... but if they do come out close to that number, someone needs to look at how he's evaluating the team and figure out where the gap is. A couple years ago, Nate Silver and I explained PECOTA to a team's front office and I'm sure Nate (who doesn't need me now!) would sit down with Williams to show him where they diverge on assessment. (Will Carroll)
2008-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ozzie Guillen was once called "The Smartest Player in Baseball." Why do so many people think he's a dumb manager? Didn't he win a World Series, and isn't this year's team far surpassing expectations?
(Paranoid from Chicago)
I don't know that people think he's a "dumb" manager. He has a certain...florid quotability that makes for people underrating one's intelligence. But he manages a bullpen well, and keeps the attention on himself and off his players--kind of a profane Joe Torre, if you will. (Derek Jacques)
2008-06-17 15:00:00 (link to chat)We know the way it was handled was wrong but were the Mets right in firing Willie Randolph?
(David from NJ)
Well, as botched a job as it was, I don't entirely disagree with the decision to dismiss Randolph. As Rob Neyer pointed out at ESPN, there's a good argument to make that he's not the right manager at the right time for this club, even given its flimsy construction.

Managers aren't solely tacticians. They're leaders of men (some very boyish men at times). Different managers have different styles, but some seem to be better at protecting their teams by placing themselves in the line of fire and drawing the attention away from the struggles of their clubs. Ozzie Guillen is a good example of this now, as batsh*t crazy as he may seem, there's a method to his madness. Joe Torre does the same thing while exuding an aura of pure calm. Bobby Valentine, Casey Stengel, Leo Durocher, Tommy Lasorda - the styles can vary but that function is an important one.

Randolph didn't handle that aspect of the job very well. The Mets have carried a very negative aura around them since last year's collapse, and not even the acquisition of Johan Santana could erase that. At some point Randolph should have just said strong words to the effect of "Don't connect this club to last year's mess, it's a new day and we've moved on so you should too." Instead he played the race card and in doing so started the countdown on his own sell-by date. (Jay Jaffe)

Not with the White Sox winning, he isn't! By the way, based on the queue, I think Jeff Kent is our winner as Walter. (Marc Normandin)
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm all for the information age, although it was a bit wearisome during the Johan sweepstakes and so many non-stories at the trade deadline. That being said, I think we've hit a new low today when this is being reported by Rotoworld: 'Toby Hall has been called into manager Ozzie Guillen's office for two meetings on Tuesday, though he's rejoined his teammates after each.' Really? Twice?

I hear you, Chuck, that's almost as tedious to read as it probably was to write. One of the things about the 24-hour news cycle is that it's like a bag of Fritos--it's there, it consumes space, and you can probably nibble on them constantly and not die, but there's no value, and the damned things don't even taste good to start off with.

2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesI still don't get the fascination with DeWayne Wise. Did Nick Swisher badmouth Venezuela?

And if you're going to play Wise, doesn't he have to be in center field? This is like the maximum possible error for using these three players.

I really do like Ozzie Guillen as a manager, but this is just inexplicable.

2008-09-30 16:30:00Twins/White Sox Play-In GameHappiest person right now? I'm taking Alex Carnevale, who gets to keep Ozzie Guillen in The Week In Quotes for a little longer. (Derek Jacques)
2008-09-30 16:30:00Twins/White Sox Play-In Game"murraygd13 (MN): Is this the Sox last chance for another title? Konerko, Thome, and Dye all figure to decline next year and the farm system is barren."

This question comes to us from 2005.

In all seriousness, I thought this in 2006. Kenny Williams has done a very good job of building a competitive rotation, helped by Ozzie Guillen's ability to manage it. That seems to me to be why the Sox surprised us this year. If they keep finding credible starters, they can hang around.

I do agree that the offense looks to be worse next year, and I'm not sure how they address that.
