BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I think I ask every year, but how close is Vladdy Guerrero creeping towards the HOF? As an Expos fan, we're left hoping for Raines, waiting to hope for Vladdy, maybe celebrating Randy Johnson's brief Exponess? Although we do have a 60 year old Livan Hernandez's eventual 300th win to look forward to, I suppose.
(achaik from Maine)
The Impaler is in good shape at 61.5/41.1/51.3, just a couple points below the standard, and 410 hits away from 3,000, through his age 36 season. Not particularly valuable anymore (1.0 WARP per year for 3 years) but the milestone will clinch it as far as the voters are concerned. (Jay Jaffe's Hall of Fame Special)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Don't you think it's strange that the home-plate umpire is the only person in the world who doesn't know which pitches are balls and which are strikes? I'm a traditionalist in many ways but surely MLB can see where this is heading. Which umpire wants to be the guy who denies the Cubs a World Championship on account of a wide strike zone?
(Christopher from Nashville)
Sure, but then there's the counter-argument, which is that you got to make Livan Hernandez a star. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)In light of last night's use, Phils fans are wondering about the possible overuse of Halladay. 132 pitches (he seemed to be laboring in the late innings too) in May seems like too many. According to some in the Phila. press Halladay has logged more innings (70.1) and thrown more pitches (1,006) in his first nine starts than he has at the start of any other season in his career. What should Phils fans be looking for to see if Halladay is being overused? If nothing else, those last 1 or 2 IP from him last night seem unnecessary.
(Sophist from Chicago)
Halladay seems to actually enjoy the heavy usage and absent any sort of performance or physical sign, there's no reason not to do so. The thing is, we don't know what he can do because he hasn't done it and there's been no real progressive development. If you said "Who can go 130 every time out?", Halladay would be near the top of my off-top list with Sabathia, Livan Hernandez, Pettitte, and Lincecum. I think the bullpen situation is affecting his usage right now, but that's kind of smart. I'd like to see them pull him when they can, but the concept of reliever is to bring in another pitcher who's better right then -- is 100% of Jose Contreras better than 70% of Roy Halladay? 60%? (Will Carroll)
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Six starts and 36.1 innings into the season, Livan Hernandez has an ERA (0.99) and a K/BB (13/11) both under 1.00. Is that the most awesomely unsustainable early-season stat line you've ever seen, or what? I think we all need to stop and admire it.
(David from CT)
That is splendid. Well done, David. (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)re: Progressive Resistance, I'd say there is a pretty significant difference. Your bench press story seems analogous to telling a pitcher "today throw 90 mph, next week throw 91 mph, in no time you'll be breaking 100!", or "this start you go 95 pitches, next time 98 pitches, in no time you'll be throwing 15-inning CGs". Innings PER YEAR seems very different, in my mind. No disrespect intended.
(robertcfox from Washington DC)
The latter, more or less. I think velocity is much less changeable and at the major league level is more indicative of health/fatigue than efficiency. Look, not everyone will bench 300 and not everyone will become Livan Hernandez. Maybe some pitchers can only go 80 pitches. Maybe 1 will go 160 and not have an issue. Thing is, we don't know now. We guess. We tell them "here's the ball, good luck, I'll watch out for you when the clicker hits 100." I'm looking for a system that tells us "this is how many they can go and recover to do it again." (Will Carroll)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Seems to me that under almost any injury-recovery circumstance that occurs, the Mets are better off with hold-and-pray rather than trying to deal for one or two starters to try to salvage the season. I suppose if 4 of their 6 key DL residents (Beltran, Reyes, Maine, Perez?) return right after the ASB and are effective they might wish they had reinforcements, but more likely a trade is an expensive fool's errand. Yes?
(mglick0718 from Oakland)
I still think they're better off tying to find a starting pitcher who might help for the stretch run, because I don't think they can count on Livan Hernandez or John Maine, let alone Oliver Perez; that sounds like an October rotation that gets beat. So they can hold-and-pray, sure, but I'd rather they tried to do the most they might with their opportunity. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, should the Mets move Santana up to pitch on regular days rest? I think they should, which would also mean they could push Maine back and skip Livan. Is not skipping a pitcher the caliber of Livan a huge mistake?
(JJ from NY)
Were I running a team, I'd have my top starter, top two, top three...wherever the dropoff in quality fell...on as close to a five-day schedule as is reasonable, to squeeze out extra starts. I'd want them getting 36 starts a year without changing their patterns. So yeah, I'd have Santana on a five-day, and I'd slide everyone else around to make it fit.

Livan Hernandez isn't qualified to pitch in a good team's rotation. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-10-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)If the Twins held onto Santana or took the Red Sox package (Lester/Crisp/Lowrie) they would be in the playoffs. Will the package they got from the Mets ultimately be viewed as a good move or will they regret the way they handled the situation?
(Bill from CT)
Do we really know that a Lester/Crisp/Lowrie package was actually on the table, or was that a bug planted in the public ear by somebody from the Boston FO/Media yenta hotline? I seem to recall more of the talk focusing on Ellsbury at the front end of the package, but I have long since forgotten most of what transpired there.

It will take years to properly evaluate the deal that actually was made. Will Gomez develop into a guy worthy of a leadoff spot? Will Deolis Guerra become a big league pitcher of worth? Will Mulvey and Humber become useful rotation parts? All of these things take time to sort out.

Even with this deal, the Twins would have been in the playoffs had they punted on Livan Hernandez and brought up Francisco Liriano a couple weeks earlier. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)So lately I've been thinking a lot about Livan Hernandez. I guess I wonder how history will remember him -- how will future generations of baseball historians conceive of a pitcher whose contribution was primarily his ability to pitch a ton of innings? I propose that his inning-eating ability will really stand out in retrospect. What do you think?

I don't think history will remember Hernandez for that so much as for the 1997 Marlins, the 34-inch strike zone in Game Six against the Braves, and Charles Johnson still not believing that pitch was a strike. (Joe Sheehan)

There you go ... and where are Cueto and Volquez now? (Will Carroll)
2008-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've been dominating the International League for the past month and a half. When do I get called up? It's not really about the money, is it? And don't tell me I'll be in the bullpen while Livan stays in the rotation.
(Francisco Liriano from Rochester, NY)
Pick one: 1) The Twins are a savvy organization well aware of what various levels of service time mean financially and in terms of retaining a player. 2) The Twins are too stupid to notice that Francisco Liriano is better than Livan Hernandez by an order of magnitude.

That's really the choice here. I know which one I go with. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)How did the Phillies not come up with $4.5 million for Kyle Lohse? Or, considering your answer on team depth before, the Mets? Sure, he's mediocre, but Livan Hernandez got $5 million. The $4.5 seems below market value for a 4th/5th starter.
(oira61 from San Francisco)
If I accept your premise, I think the whole point is that Lohse wasn't initially pricing himself at that point, and personalities do enter into things like this -- you can never tell who got alienated over the winter. It's also possible that teams don't see him as having that much value, right or wrong. (Steven Goldman)
