BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Gregory Polanco hitting in the lead off spot will impact his power production in the short terms? Or perhaps even his overall power development? It seems that hitting lead off could potentially change his in game approach and subsequently impact his power.
(Frank from Pitt)
I doubt it, and I wouldn't worry. Polanco's power hasn't fully developed yet, so leadoff is where he fits best right now, and the Pirates lack a true leadoff hitter, so it's a good pairing. I doubt Polanco is doing anything different in his approach to at-bats right now, however, so I don't think there's any long-term effects. Far too much is made about where hitters hit in the lineup and the way it affects their approach. Just go up there and do what you do best, which I'm sure is what Clint Hurdle told him, and it seems to be working pretty well so far. (Jeff Moore)
2012-09-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why do owners/GM's repeatedly recycle established boneheads like myself, Jim Tracy, Clint Hurdle, Bobby Valentine, et. al., instead of giving the Venturas & Mathenys of the world more opportunities? Thanks, Dan!
(Scrap Iron from On queue for Hurdle's job)
Scrap Iron, that's a good question. Sometimes unheralded or inexperienced people fail to get opportunities because the scope of the GM or owner is not broad enough to make their candidate list. I have found that some really terrific people are there if you are thinking about candidates ALL of the time. There is nothing wrong with a guy who's done it before, because there are different reasons why people get fired in one situation and thrive in another. Robin Ventura was a great hire by the White Sox, and his demeanor during last night's post-game presser was amazing for a first-timer, in fact it was text book. Some people are born to lead, and you have to keep your eyes open for them all the time. It is such a tough job, but there are so many different ways to do it. (Dan Evans)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Clint Hurdle is here, but what can he do, really?
(mhixpgh from Pittsburgh)
Mark time, and bunt more than the average bear. That isn't all bad, in that he ought to be a confident steward as the organization breaks in a few prospects, but the organization necessarily has to be more about what Huntington and Coonelly do with their Junes than how Hurdle spends his time. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hiya Christina ... happy Pennant Race to you! Worst in-game manager: a) Ned Yost b) Clint Hurdle c) other
(dianagramr from NYC)
Hi Diana, happy pennant races to you too. I know Yost and Hurdle get banged on, but I saw Jim Essian, and skip(s), you're no Jim Essian. That said, I'd like to spend some more time looking at boxes from Maury Wills understandably similarly brief and bad tenure running the Mariners. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the answer and appreciate the article today. Have to ask: do you think Clint Hurdle understands that all teams go through winning streaks? And losing streaks? He comes across as if he thinks they're the only team capable of getting hot.
(Rob from Alaska)
I do think the Rockies are also banking a little too much on just completely catching fire again. I don't know if they entirely understand that what they did last year was truly a once-in-a-lifetime thing. (John Perrotto)
2008-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alot of people think the unhittable Buchholz would get passed over in favor or Corpas for the Rox closer job if Fuentes were to be dealt. How about you?
(Mike from DC)
Because Corpas is signed to the long-term deal, there's a reasonable chance he gets another shot. Buchholz has certainly pitched well enough so far, but part of me still wants the Rox to think of him as a starter. Again, we're trying to read the tea leaves on what Clint Hurdle thinks, not necessarily who has earned the gig. If push comes to shove and I could only roster one, I'd go with Buchholz, just because he's pitching better. (Jeff Erickson)
