BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are you hearing about Garrett Jones? Is he for real?
(Buxfan from Altoona)
I think he's a solid starter on a second-division team. On a good team, he'd make a really nice bench player. (John Perrotto)
2010-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Best guess for Garrett Jones slash line this year? Or Milledge?
(Joe from Pa)
Jones: .235/.310/.420. Milledge: .285/.340/.455. (Joe Sheehan)
2010-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Garrett Jones isn't a complete fluke? .270 with 25 homers and 80 rbi equals LaRoche, and 20 steals far surpasses him.
(Joe from Pa)
I certainly think it was fluky. Gimme an .800 or so OPS on him this year. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Garrett Jones would easily have 30+ home runs if he had come up with McCutchen. Are either viable ROY candidates in the NL?
(WilliamWallace from Pittsburgh)
Jones leads NL rookies in VORP, curiously enough, with McCutchen right behind him. As good as Jones has been, I view him as a journeyman having an unsustainable season, and I wonder if the Writers will see it the same way. I think Chris Coghlan also has to be in the conversation, as well as J.A. Happ and Tommy Hanson. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)I can't find a site to let me view stats from two specific dates. I'm curious how Garrett Jones' production since his first game this season compare to the rest of MLB. He has to be top 10 in homers.
(Dorn from DC)
He is. He came up on July 1 and since then Derek Lee has hit 24, Ryan Howard, Prince Fielder, and Mark Reynolds have hit 23, and Jones has hit 21. What might surprise you is who is right behind him -- David Ortiz with 20. I wouldn't get too excited by Jones, though. This really seems like a Kevin Maas thing to me. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, can you offer your take on two NL outfielders, Raul Ibanez and Garrett Jones? Both had surprising performances this year. Ibanez has been AWFUL in the second half. Maybe he's injured? Garrett Jones just hasn't let up. When the clock strikes 12, will he be a pumpkin again? Or is he here to stay (sort of a Ryan Ludwick type late-bloomer)? Thanks!
(Sharky from The Deep End)
Re: Ibanez, I'm reminded of one old Strat opponent who always liked to mildly observe, "it all evens out in the end." I never really bought into that (Willingham's season is going to look insanely great relative to the rest of his career no matter what, for example), but it certainly seems that somebody's applied a leveller of some sort. Jones might be a latter-day Paul Sorrento of sorts, in that he's always had employable power, and simply needed the opportunity; Jones has helped himself by being employable enough in an outfield corner, but first base is really the position he'll wind up at, sort of the same way Sorrento had to diversify. That's the nature of first base, if you're not someone like Pujols (superstar moving from another position) or Prince Fielder (drafter to be a superstar), you need to make a great impression with what opportunities you do get. Witness what's happened to Daric Barton, or how long it took Carlos Pena to finally stick; if you blow an opportunity, competition for playing time at first base is *fierce*. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi John, thanks for the chat. What are your thoughts on Garrett Jones and Jeff Clement? How well do you think they will do next year and what positions do you think they will play?
(Dennis from California)
I think Jones will start the season in the starting lineup either at first or right field, depending on what happens with Clement. I have some doubts about Clement. The Mariners really soured on him and he certainly is a one-dimensional player. It will be interesting to see how he fares with the Pirates in September. (John Perrotto)
2009-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Garrett Jones the greatest hitter of all time?
(tycobb from ga)
Better than Ty Cobb?

Yes, on the heels of his 8th home run last night in something like 60 at bats, there is little doubt. But seriously, Jones is a good story and a nice shot in the arm for the Pirates. That said, I have to believe that hes a 2-for-12 slump away from sitting on the bench and watching Lastings Milledge play. As popular as Nyjer Morgan was -- and yes, Morgan can play, too -- the Milledge deal was seemingly a wise one for Neal Huntington. There is still a good chance that Milledge will be a star. Garrett Jones is, in all likelihood, the most recent reincarnation of Chris Shelton. (David Laurila)
