DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did any team do better than the Astros at the deadline? Seems like they turned a reliever pretending to be a starter, a low-tier closer and a fourth outfielder into a good OF prospect, a solid OF prospect, two strong SP prospects, a PTBNL and a top 40 overall pick in a strong draft class next year.
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston)
I think the two Chicago teams did. The Astros didn't get a prospect of Garcia or Olt's cut, and the Cubs also received a close-to-surefire MLB pitcher in Justin Grimm. Houston did get some interesting pieces. Danry Vazquez's power is intriguing, L.J. Hoes could be a nice bench piece, and the arms might turn into something (though I think the Kyle Smith outrage, which seems based upon his numbers alone is a bit much; besides, Justin Maxwell is an okay fourth outfielder). We'll see what the PTBNL and draft pick yields.

Of course, on the bright side: Houston didn't give up a whole lot that impacts their future. Jose Veras was always trade bait, Bud Norris is about to cost more than a bad team should pay him, and Justin Maxwell was a savvy waiver-wire pickup. So Houston seemingly did well. I just don't know if they did the best. (R.J. Anderson Trade Deadline Wrap Chat)
2013-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ryan Spilborghs has a .327 OBP in Japan. The MLB league average is .317. Cauliflower hurting when I dump the trash - Ghostface Killah. Couldn't a team like the Royals use the Spillygoat?
(Rafiki from DaBreeze)
I don't know how a .327 on-base percentage in Japan would translate to the majors nowadays (probably not well enough to feel great about it), but Kansas City is not the spot for Spilborghs given Justin Maxwell. (R.J. Anderson Trade Deadline Wrap Chat)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)One break-out hitter and pitcher in each league?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Alex Cobb & Justin Maxwell ; Marco Estrada/Logan Forsythe (Jason Collette)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Paul, what are your thoughts on Justin Maxwell in Houston? The guy had 18 homers in only 315 AB's last year. Is he a sleeper for next year? Thanks.
(Caleb from St. Louis)
He gets mangled against righties (697 last year, 678 career) so he's on the wrong side of the platoon or at least he should be. He'd be overexposed in a full-time role. 13 of his HRs also came against righties and he had a 23% HR/FB so it's tough to see a repeat. His 2012 will likely overprice him in NL-only which is the only format in which I'd give him serious consideration. (Paul Sporer)
