BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)Did you see any of Luis Severino's starts while he was with Charleston? If so, what notes did you take?
(Ace from PA)
He's a poor man's Alexi Ogando. The velo is good but he catches lots of the plate and I was never wowed. Should contribute at big league level. (Ryan Parker)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)I'd love some help prioritizing some available Al SPs for the rest of the year: Phil Hughes, Alexi Ogando, John Danks, Dan Straily, RHernandez, and Erik Bedard. Thanks!!!!!
(Frank Finley from Jasper)
Heya Frank.

Think I'll go Ogando, Straily, Bedard, Danks, Roberto Hernandez and Phil Hughes. With a group like this, you're looking for upside and Ogando and Straily probably have the most upside of the group. Bedard has some upside but runs into problems with high pitch counts; if you're in a wins league, that's a problem. Danks is meh even for onlies, and I'm not a fan of Hernandez or Hughes. Both are risks even in only. (Mike Gianella)
2012-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Regarding Neftali Feliz and the Rangers pitching - do you think Texas would send him to AAA at the beginning of the season to refine his starting arsenal because they have too many starters? Or is Alexi Ogando going to have a more permanent role in the bullpen?
(jhardman from Apex, NC)
I don't know what the Rangers are going to do, and I haven't paid close attentions to the rumblings out of Arlington to know which way they are leaning. With Darvish slotting in for Wilson, do they still really have a surplus of starters? Darvish, Lewis, Holland, Harrison...okay so technically I suppose Ogando and Feliz don't both fit there, and maybe that means one of them has to start the year in the bullpen and thus can't easily be moved to the rotation mid-year. I don't have a strong opinion. (Mike Fast)
2011-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Based on pure stuff/dominance/command (whatever strikes you), which pitchers are you most looking forward to watching this postseason?
(Lucas Apostoleris from Amherst, MA)
Kenley Jansen is the guy that has piqued my interest most recently, but I'll have all offseason to look at him, I suppose.

Of the pitchers who look playoff-bound, Craig Kimbrel is just amazing. I'm curious about Verlander's BABIP this year. Doug Fister is an interesting story. I've wanted to look at Alexi Ogando's switch to the rotation. Koji Uehara fascinates me, with his splitter and high flyball/popup rate. Josh Collmenter and Ian Kennedy are interesting.

Of course there's no way I'll end up analyzing all or even most of those guys, but those are a few names who grab my attention. (Mike Fast)
2011-06-29 13:30:00 (link to chat)I don't think Alexi Ogando's really a rookie...
(Bob from Seattle)
Ogando did not go over the rookie limit of 50 innings last season but he may have surpassed the service time requirements. Anyway, I'll change my vote to Michael Pineda. (John Perrotto)
2011-06-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have a very strong pitching staff in a long term keeper Strat-O-Matic 16 team league and I only need five starters. Which five of these would you keep? Josh Beckett, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Zack Greinke, CJ Wilson, Jordan Zimmermann, Clayton Kershaw, Derek Holland, Alexi Ogando, and Chris Narveson. Keep in mind I can keep them forever.
(jhardman from Apex, NC)
Lincecum, Kershaw, Greinke, and Cain seem like obvious choices. I'd probably go with Beckett for the last spot, though Wilson might be safer, given Beckett's age and injury history. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-06-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Dan, In my 6x6 roto league, I was just offered Shin-Soo Choo for Rajai Davis and Alexi Ogando. What do you think? Is Choo going to return to form?
(SnakeDoctor18 from NY)
That's a tough call. Choo admitted this weekend that he's been pressing as a way to make up for his DUI arrest. Clearly he's the best player in the deal when he's on, but you have to wonder whether (and when) he'll put the arrest behind him. (Dan Turkenkopf)
2011-05-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)I drafted Alexi Ogando this season banking that he would be the closer in lieu of Neftali Feliz. Fortunately, when it was announced that Feliz would remain the closer, I kept Ogando and have been rewarded with outstanding performance from a SP. So the question is, should I expect this to keep up, or should I sell high on him? I'm concerned about a career high usage and him having to pitch in Arlington this summer. What are your thoughts?
(JoshC77 from Columbus, OH)
There were concerns about Oganda's ability to get lefties out entering the season, but he has fared really well against them so far (an OPS against just over 600). Nobody is going to keep a sub-2 ERA, but as long as he stays healthy, he should be a decent option heading forward.

You have to tip your cap to Texas on reliever-to-starter transitions too. Either they've gotten lucky a few times, or they know what's up. Maybe a bit of both. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking at CJ Wilson and Alexi Ogando, I'm curious which relievers out there do you feel have adequate secondary stuff to succeed as starters?
(Teenwolf from Vancouver, BC)
I was a big fan of the C.J. Wilson switch to the rotation, as you know. In general, I fall with the camp that likes to see good pitchers in the rotation where they can maximize their value.

However, as a way of ducking your very good question, one thing near the top of my research list is learning what it really takes for pitchers to succeed at the relief-to-starting switch. There are so many sample biases that it makes for a difficult to study to undertake. (Mike Fast)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey John, you think guys like Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek, and Alexi Ogando should be held onto or sold for 2011?
(SnakeDoctor18 from NY)
Of the three, I'd be most apt to hold onto Drabek but I'd be willing to give up any of the three if I felt I was getting a really good deal. (John Perrotto)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Four starts for Alexi Ogando and he has a WHIP of 0.79. Shouldn't the other teams have had a chance to make adjustments to his two-pitch arsenal by now? Or is he for real?
(jhardman from Apex, NC)
Using your own question, I can answer that. Four starts. Not a lot of repeat opponents in that mix who can adjust to him the second time around.

I like Ogando and all, but he has been more successful than he will end up being, assuming he remains in this job. (Marc Normandin)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, What do you think of Alexi Ogando? Can he maintain being a dominant starter as he's shown in his first two starts?
(SnakeDoctor18 from New York, NY)
I like Ogando--he was effective out of the pen last season, even if he couldn't convince Ron Washington to use him in any high-leverage spots. I don't think he'll continue to be this dominant, though, since I'm not sure his control or luck are this good. You wonder if he'll run out of gas at some point, too. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Evan Grant put Alexi Ogando in his projected Rangers starting rotation this morning. What are your thoughts on that?
(T.R. Sullivan's Merkin from El Segundo)
I makes me think he has never seen Ogando pitch (Jason Parks)
