BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Ryan Madson as a cheap flier in a keeper league? Lot of ifs. If he's healthy, if he gets in a situation to become closer (like returning to philly and waiting for Paplebon to be moved at the deadline.
(higgsboson from Guelph)
Eh. He could become the closer but then so could a lot of guys. I'd target healthy pitchers with skills who did the job last year as opposed to a total question mark. He's certainly fine at $1 if you have the space. (Mike Gianella)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Seems like there are a number of older "proven closers" on the free agent market with only a handful of opportunities out there- Joaquin Benoit, Grant Balfour, Joe Nathan, Fernando Rodney, Edward Mujica not to mention the injury reclamation projects like Brian Wilson, Ryan Madson and Joel Hanrahan. With the success that the Cardinals had moving Edward Mujica back two innings and then doing the same with Trevor Rosenthal and Carlos Martinez in the playoffs, are the days of spending big on closers finally over? Does a team like the Cubs with no great in house solution and a smart front office take advantage of the oversaturated market or pass on all those guys?
(Scott from LA)
We'll continue to see a wide variety of approaches to how teams handle the late innings. On the one hand there is certainly something to the idea that there are people who can close and people who can't. But you'd be hard pressed to get a closer enough innings in a season to justify paying big for them (unless, like the Yankees, Phillies, Red Sox, etc. you simply have the money to spend). St. Louis has such a glut of arms they have no reason to go outside the org, but for many teams there simply aren't good reasons to limit a young, high ceiling arm to a closer role. I imagine the Cubs will look for a reasonably priced arm that they think can handle the job, rather than committing more money over multiple years. (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-06-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think there is any connection with how many of this year's high profile TJ surgery class have had significant setbacks - Ryan Madson, Daniel Hudson, Cory Luebke, Scott Baker?
(Scott from LA)
Given that this spans four teams, I think it's coincidental. I could be swayed with some evidence, but I just haven't seen anything to suggest otherwise. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Does Ryan Madson come back this year and get the closing job?
(Joe from Seattle)
He had a setback today and won't resume throwing for another week and will see the Dr. I put the odds at him pitching in 2013 at 60%. (Jason Collette)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Closers are on the mind today. Thoughts on how the Jays' and Angels' closer situations play out?
(Carlester from Seaboard)
There was a story yesterday or the day before that Ryan Madson could miss the first week of the season, so Ernesto Frieri might get the ninth-inning job on Opening Day, but Madson (if healthy) should get the opportunities the rest of the way. In Toronto, given how well Casey Janssen performed last year — and his success against both righty and lefty batters — I'd consider him the favorite. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's up with Ryan Madson's elbow? Anything to worry about, or is this just common soreness/tenderness associated with loosening up for the season?
(Matt from Madison, WI)
Arm trouble is never a *good* thing for a pitcher, but this appears to be mild, it's the very start of camp, so definitely don't panic. He should be fine. (Derek Carty)
2011-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)I hear that odds are Pads won't re-sign Heath Bell, but who else is giving him offers? Also, if he leaves San Diego, would that hurt his fantasy value (worse ballpark) or help (better team)?
(Noah Braun from San Diego)
I haven't heard of any concrete offers yet, but the Red Sox sound like they’re going to be in on the remaining top closers (Bell and Ryan Madson). The Jays have been linked, but it seems more likely they’ll go for a cheaper option. Other teams without clear closers like the Reds and Dodgers could also get involved. The Padres might still be the favorite, though, especially if the Red Sox go a different direction (i.e. Madson, a cheaper option to compete with Bard, or a trade for someone like Joel Hanrahan).

It would likely hurt his value if he did leave, but the extent would depend on where he ends up. Being on a better team is more important for starting pitchers than relievers, since offense has a smaller impact on save chances than it does on a starter’s wins. The defense will of course matter for his ratios, but as long as he’s a closer, he’ll be a good bet for 30-35 saves, as he would be in San Diego. It’s also worth noting that Bell saw a big drop in K rate this year (20% compared to 29% in 2009-2010), and Pecto actually inflates Ks by 10 percent over a neutral park. That’s going to be something we’ll really need to keep an eye on next year, but it's not enough to make me shy away from him if I need a closer in my leagues and he's affordable. (Derek Carty)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)keeper league - is Ryan Madson a good bet to close next year? trying to decide if I should pull the trigger on a deal...
(Henry from Fairport)
The Phillies have a club option for $12.5M on Lidge--I find it hard to believe they'll pick it up, considering the money trouble they claimed to have run into this winter when it came to keeping Lee. Madson's the man if that's the case, but if Lidge keeps dealing, who knows? (Marc Normandin)
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Heath Bell will be traded by _____. My two favorite 8th inning guys that will soon become closers are ______ and ____.
(Tad Lucky from Vegas)
July. Mike Adams or Luke Gregerson, maybe? I thought Ryan Madson would be one of the answers to that question, but now he's out for 8 weeks thanks to a temper tantrum. Poor form, Mr. Madson. Someone should have tazed him before he made contact with that chair. (Marc Normandin)
