BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any way to look at the Giants off-season as anything but another disaster?
(bjmd from SF)
It's glum stuff in terms of Sanchez and Huff, certainly, because the disasters involve the elective decisions to sign them, and forgo other alternatives. If the goal was to wind up with a first baseman who might not outhit Travis Ishikawa or Nate Shierholtz or John Bowker, with the flexibility of Mark DeRosa and Pablo Sandoval allowing you to rotate around if all three deliver (no laughing... OK, some laughing), maybe all that's lost is money. I still think the Dodgers and Rockies are takeable, but the disaster is that Sabean didn't seem to realize it, and lined up adequate propositions in an offseason where other teams have been considerably bolder and more creative in fixing their problems. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-01-14 16:00:00 (link to chat)Nothing lasts forever? Look no further than my career. Thoughts on the Giants off-season moves?
(Axel Rose from Cold November Rain)
(Tries to think of clever linkage between GNR's "comeback" and the Giants. Not working.) Pablo Sandoval, Travis Ishikawa, Aubrey Huff, Mark DeRosa. They will all play where? I'm scratching my head. (Russell A. Carleton)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are you thoughts thus far on Pablo Sandoval and Travis Ishikawa in San Fran?
(Elmo from Bay Area)
I was pretty sunny on both of them a few weeks back in TA, and so far, they haven't been disappointments. I think it's safe to say neither one of them is the new Lance Niekro. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin - Are you buying Travis Ishikawa's resurgence at Fresno?
(kcellis224 from SF, CA)
I'm not buying it yet, but I have to admit, I do find myself returning to the isle at the store of late. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think about long forgotten (and rightfully so) Giants prospect Travis Ishikawa? He's made noticeable improvements this year in AA, cutting his K's and boosting his walks, and at 24-years-old, he's not ancient. He had a lot of people intrigued after his '05 in San Jose but then kinda fizzled in the tough Eastern League. Back on the radar or still off the grid.
(Chris from Harrisonburg, VA)
I agree with pretty much everything you said here, but at the same time, Ishikawa is still a first baseman without a lot of power. How much value does that have? (Kevin Goldstein)
