BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Small sample size says quad A player. Approach says Corey Patterson clone. How long until you start to waiver and worry? What are other scouts saying?
(Javier Bust Ezz from Mendoza Line)
We need to see more. Period. But obviously you want to see elite-level players produce accordingly. I'm not panicking--by any means--but you have to be a little concerned with the extreme day/night shifts, and if that suggests a more substantial issues with his eyes/recognition ability. It's still a small sample and pressing could be the biggest issue right now. I'll just say that I'll be quite happy if his early struggles are the result of his confidence/comfort in the box rather than a recognition/vision issue, which can doom a player. (Jason Parks)
2011-09-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the long response; now a much shorter follow-up. Who do the Cardinals keep for 2012 from the swag they got for Raz? More specifically, do they try to re-up Edwin Jackson?
(BillJ from New Mexico)
Dotel has been good for them, so I could see them exercising his option for $3.5 million, and Rzepczynski/Scrabble is under team control. You'd hope the .167/.184/.250 line Corey Patterson has put up since the trade would convince the Cards not to keep him. As for Edwin Jackson, it would be nice if he could finally find a home with a nice family that doesn't care that his performance doesn't always match his potential. He's 27 and he's pitched decently in St. Louis, so I can imagine that happening. If Kyle Lohse can get a four-year deal... (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-04-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Travis Snider and Adam Jones are piling disappointing starts on top of disappointing careers. Do you think either or both will turn it around?
(Rex Little from Big Bear CA)
Well, KG tells me Adam Jones is better than Willie Mays, so he has to turn it around, right? (Of course, that's just his standard intro into how average players today are better conditioned, better trained, etc. -- of course Willie Mays born at the same time as Adam Jones would be better than Adam Jones).

Seriously, though, I fear Adam Jones is turning into Corey Patterson, and I'm losing my optimism about him. Snider is younger and has a better chance of turning things around. (Ken Funck)
2009-10-05 16:00:00 (link to chat)How did you not mention firing Dusty Baker as the number one thing the Reds need to do this off season. Seriously why do people keep hiring a guy whose only skill is ruining the careers quality pitchers?
(Frug from UIUC)
Well he is also addicted to Corey Patterson/Taveras types. It wasn't as big of a priority for me as the other aspects mentioned unless it goes hand in hand. If he insists on Taveras playing and limiting the time of Bailey, Stubbs, Bruce, then yeah he should go. But even if he does go it isn't as if someone else is going to come and magically turn them into a 95-67 team. They have holes that need to be filled before replacing a manager who MAYBE results in 1-3 extra wins or losses in a year. (Eric Seidman)
2008-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can the Reds contend for a playoff spot in 2009?
(Brandon from Charleston)
I'm more hopeful than I was based on Walt Jocketty publicly saying things like, "Yeah, Corey Patterson won't be back next year." As I've said in previous chats (and over at yesnetwork.com in the Pinstriped Bible, and on street corners, in the shower) I don't care who the manager is or how famous he is, leading off Patterson is a firable offense, instant court martial material. The key thing is that, as the pitching staff starts to come together, that they don't overrate their offense. They could also stand to figure out that their pitching staff will gel that much faster if they correct their league-worst defense. I'm very curious about what this offseason holds for them. (Steven Goldman)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)k..so without dunn..how do the reds go about having a major league outfield next year aside form bruce
(JROB4349 from jax,fl)
I hated using him to block Bruce, but Corey Patterson in a platoon with Ryan Freel in a corner is a nice little player. That's a start. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Corey Patterson have secret photos of Dusty Baker? How can you explain the addition Baker has to Patterson and how many games do you think Patterson has cost the Reds?
(pmuehlenkamp from Cincinnati)
Dusty believes his eyes. If you watch Corey Patterson for a short period of time, you're going to see him do things well. He's fast, strong and just "looks like a player." Except his results suck. I think Baker -- and a lot of other people -- believe what they see over the longer term results and that they refuse to believe that they could be so wrong. We saw the same thing with Baker and Neifi Perez. Just when Perez would be not hitting his way out of a job, he'd get one hit or make one great play in the field and that's what Baker would fixate on. (Will Carroll)
2008-05-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the over/under on how many starts Jay Bruce gets before Dusty starts throwing Corey Patterson and Ryan Freel back out there in CF?
(Rob from Bloomington, IL)
I think we need to focus less on Dusty Baker and more on their front office. If the front office has some idea what it's doing, they'll tell him "Jay Bruce will start at least 20 times a month. Or we'll be looking for a new manager. Any questions?" (Nate Silver)
2008-05-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)I get mad every time I see the Corey Patterson/Felix Pie comparison. There is no comparison am I right ? Pie has performed much better in the high minors than Patterson ever did. Looking back it's hard to see why people thought Patterson would succeed other than scouting reports. Or am I smoking crack ?
(tbwhite from San Diego)
Patterson was Pie's #1 PECOTA comparable last season. (Nate Silver)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who loses out on the most playing time due to Jay Bruce finally getting the callup?
(Ryan from Milwaukee)
Let's start easy and then warm up. Wouldn't Corey Patterson seem like the obvious choice, given that he's largely without redeeming value? Am I missing something here? (Steven Goldman)
2008-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Felix Pie get another chance or are the Cubs stuck on this one chance thing (Murton, Cedeno, Marshall...)
(Billy from Athens, GA)
Corey Patterson, the sequel! (Will Carroll)
2008-03-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)I can't help but think that the Padres still have half a dozen better options for their outfield then the guys they have slated now. The Red Sox and Angels have extra outfielders to trade. Kenny Lofton or Corey Patterson seem like reasonable fits when you consider the salary they'll be paying out to Jim Edmonds. When did KT get all Pat Gillick-y?
(Wilson from Cambridge)
I would have liked to see them snag Patterson so that Edmonds could play left field. The man cannot cover the ground in that park. He'd be an upgrade in left for one year, though. Lofton isn't the answer to play next to him...honestly, it might be worth seeing how much of Gary Matthews' Jr.'s contract the Angels are willing to eat.

If the outfield is Hairston/Headley, Edmonds and Giles, I weep for that flyball pitching staff. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)PECOTA doesn't see the big breakout you had earlier predicted for Jeff Francoeur. Are you sticking to your guns?
(RahulN from GA)
I think I answered this one already, but it never left the queue, and there was a followup I can't find.

Someone compared Francoeur's walk rate jump to Corey Patterson's in 2005 and called it small. Francoeur actually doubled his unintentional walk rate. That's a big jump, given that his K rate and XBH rate and G/F didn't change. He just walked more often. I think the overall impact of that change will be a key to this year. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-22 19:00:00 (link to chat) Can you suggest any free-agent outfielders the Orioles might go after who promise greater productivity than does Corey Patterson?
(gradyjerome from New Bern, NC)
Well, there's that Bonds fellow...I'm looking at the list and it's not promising. What are your thoughts on Shawn Green? How about Luis Gonzalez? Roger Cedeno? Richard Hidalgo? How about a return visit from Sammy Sosa? I'd take a pass on just about everyone, really. I'd invite some of them to camp, but I wouldn't be going out of my way to sign anyone on that list, except for Bonds who will still be more productive than most. (Jim Baker)
2008-01-15 14:30:00 (link to chat)Corey Patterson seems like he'd be an especially good fit for the Padres. Any idea why they don't go out and get him?
(Carlos from Montana)
I'm not too hot on Patterson, as I stated in my last profile. He's a defensive fourth outfielder who may not bring anything offensively, and Petco isn't going to help with that issue. I guess he could work as a late solution, but the shiny stick of Wilkerson is more intriguing to me, especially since the dude can walk. That's pretty key when the ball won't go yard. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-15 14:30:00 (link to chat)Marc-- So, has doing all of these profiles made a difference in how you view the game or individual players? Go meta on us, please....
(Adam from MD)
It has in a lot of ways. I've changed what I look for in player development, and have learned to give certain players a second look, or maybe know when it's time to cut bait. What I really love is going back through some of the old BP issues and finding little nuggets like the 2007 comment for Corey Patterson. I think there are a lot of lessons for all of us to take away regarding baseball analysis, and the profiles help me correct (and hopefully better) my own analysis the more I work with them. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-15 14:30:00 (link to chat)How do you go about choosing your players for the profiles?
(Matt from SF, CA)
I end up thinking about the players far in advance usually, at least in season. This winter was tough because I wanted to cover free agents, but in case everyone missed it, this class sucked. I sift through lists of players, or check out who has been especially hot or cold as of late or for the season. BABIP plays a big part, as does the batted-ball data. Guys with a story beat those without, no matter how good someone may be. I went with Corey Patterson over Mike Cameron this past week for just that reason, since Patterson was a former #1 prospect who never got much better than that. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bigger draft bust Corey Patterson or Colt Griffin?
(o'neill from cooperstown)
MLB Games:

Patterson: 856
Griffin: 0

That answer your question? (Kevin Goldstein)
