2015-05-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Three questions about Joey Butler: how long can he keep up his .400 BABiP (It's been more or less that for his four seasons in AAA.) Why don't the Rays play him more often? We would assume he'll be returned to AAA when Jennings comes back, right?
(John Carter from Great Lakes region)
It is extremely unlikely anyone can keep a BABIP that high in the majors; barely any one ever does it for one year, let alone for multiple years. It's easier to get higher quality contact in the minors against weaker pitchers, poorer arsenals, and particularly the back end of bullpens that are organizational depth. Nearly everyone you're facing in the majors has a high end out pitch.

He probably should be getting a few more at bats than Brandon Guyer, but when you factor the high whiff rate in, the Rays are probably figuring that he is a BABIP fluke.

Yes, he seems like the guy who would go down when Desmond Jennings comes off of the DL. (Mike Gianella)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Mikey Mahtook = or > Brandon Guyer?
(Swamp Gator from Jacksonville)
I would go with >. I'm still high on him, and while I doubt he ever ends up a starter, I actually think there's more upside in his bat than Souza. Call me crazy. Actually don't. (Christopher Crawford)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does a big year from B.J. Upton in any way change the Rays plans for 2013 and beyond? He's not quite the Carl Crawford type, expected to pull in a huge deal, and the team that wanted him in center the most the last few seasons now has Bryce Harper in tow.
(Marc from The Internet)
If anything, a big year decreases his likelihood of returning. The Rays have tried extending Upton multiple times, dating back to his days in the minors. If it was going to happen, it wouldíve happened by now. If Upton does have a big year, I could see a team falling in love with him as the Mís did with Adrian Beltre back in the day. People have been predicting a breakout season for Upton long enough that it might only take one big year to convince someone heís made the leap.

As for the Rays outfield situation, Iíd still anticipate Brandon Guyer being the benefactor. That could and likely will change between now and next opening day, but thatís just how the depth chart is set up right now. There are some around the league who think Guyer could become an everyday player. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-05-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Explain why Carlos Beltran does or does not make sense for the Rays if they are still alive at the deadline.
(PMCY from Moms basement)
It depends on what their roster looks like. If Desmond Jennings and/or Brandon Guyer are up with Johnny Damon still at designated hitter, then they really don't have room for Beltran. Plus, the finances and prospect return required. I'm just not sure it's realistic at this point. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Brandon Guyer's future with the Rays? He gets the distinction of hitting a HR in his first MLB at-bat, but that really means very little.
(kf4ykd from Charlottesville)
He'll have a career as a second-division starter kinda guy. (Kevin Goldstein)
