BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-05-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can you recall any pitcher with extremely ugly mechanics that succeeded for a long time?
(BobcatBaseball from Athens, OH)
Great question, and I have been spinning names throughout the chat to come up with a good answer. The key is the "succeeded for a long time" part of the question - some guys can succeed for a little while with poor mechanics, but they are usually caught by injury or poor performance, as rough mechanics have functional implications. Juan Marichal had awful balance, so he might qualify. Dan Haren has had poor posture and a ridiculous pause in his delivery throughout his career, but I wouldn't go so far as to call his delivery "extremely ugly." Yovani Gallardo could enter the discussion if he continues to pitch moderately well despite F grade mechanics. The list is short and undistinguished. (Doug Thorburn)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best baseball-themed Christmas present you've ever got?
(Toby from Target)
Hmm. Iím going to whiff on this, probably. Itís hard to remember former gifts on demand. A family friend once gave me a piece of paper that Juan Marichal had signed. Just a scrap, about as big as my pinkie, because that was all the person had with him at the time. I really like that present because it was so worthless, materially speaking. When I was a kid collecting baseball cards, memorabilia became very money-based, like I had this deluded sense that I was investing and that I was somehow wealthy because I got a $7 John Smoltz rookie card in a pack. Baseball-card collecting was fun, but it was a particular sort of laborious fun. That Juan Marichal scrap was just 100 percent unsellable, though, so I never had to worry about it the way I worried about my cards, or about other memorabilia I had. I could just look at it.

One year, I got in trouble and my parents took away all my baseball cards as punishment. I managed to smuggle one card free (Jose Oquendo, 1988 Topps), but the rest were taken and hidden. For Christmas, they gave me my cards back. That was amazing at the time, but now that I think about heyyyyyyyy that present sort of sucks.

For my birthday this year, I got this shirt. I like it: http://www.tauntr.com/content/just-fire-it-through-internet-shirt

What about everybody else? Lay 'em on me. (Sam Miller)
2011-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would be on your top 10 pitchers to see list: I'd put vintage Maddux, Halladay, Pedro, Clemens, and 87 Mike Scott, Gooden, Blyleven, Rivera, Henke, and Johan for people from my lifetime. I
(JT from Exhibition Stadium)
Having seen all of those guys, I'd focus on a lot on the ones that I didn't get to see. If I've included Ryan on that top 10, I'll add Sandy Koufax, Walter Johnson, Lefty Grove, Juan Marichal, Bob Gibson, Grover Alexander, Old Hoss Radbourn (just to see what the game was like then), Burleigh Grimes (need a spitballer), and because he's meant so much to me in the JAWS process, Blyleven. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Just a comment: If Juan Marichal can be in the Hall of Fame, I don't see how the voters can justify continuing to punish Alomar.
(Mike from Hoboken)
THIS. (Jay Jaffe)
