BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are a few of your favorite players this season? (MLB or minor)
(Batpoet from San Diego)
Hi Batpoet, always good to see my Twitter friends here; glad you could join us! At the big-league level, I have a fondness for guys who attended my alma mater or who I saw play a lot in the minors. That would include A.J. Griffin, Oliver Perez, Kyle Blanks, Headley. Current minor leaguers? Austin Hedges, who I look forward to watching at Lake Elsinore. And of course, Billy Hamilton, who is just so disruptive. I doubt I'll ever get tired of watching him play. (Geoff Young)
2011-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much are you rooting for Omar Minaya to be the financial representative of MLB that needs to sign off on the Dodger's decisions until the ownership situation is resolved? Would that be the greatest thing ever, or simply great?
(Marc from Inside Your Internets)
Which is a more wasteful way to spend Dodger money, on an estate in Cape Cod or on Oliver Perez? Hmm. (Neil deMause)
2010-12-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Word from Gammons is the Mets would eat about $10 million of Beltran's last year to move him to Boston, or take $10 million of bad contracts in return, like maybe Daisuke. What do you think?
(Colin Jaffe from New Jersey)
I just wrote about acquiring Magglio Ordonez or Josh Willingham for left field at Red Sox Beacon, but Beltran would be a fine fit as well. His defense is diminished, but he would be playing in left anyway, and it would open up a rotation spot for Boston to either (A) put Felix Doubront in or (B) acquire a starting pitcher to fill out their rotation. It also helps the Mets, as someone like Matsuzaka gives them starting pitcher depth at a good price--Dice-K makes $2M less than Oliver Perez, and is far, far superior--in a park and league where his stuff should play better than at Fenway. It would be win-win, if that's the case. (Marc Normandin)
2010-11-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)You have $5 million to spend and you're Mets GM. Who do you get?
(Liam from Whippleville, NY)
Jorge de la Rosa? Rid of Oliver Perez? $5 million would cover almost half of the sunk cost remaining on his deal. Hey, there must be some more former GMs on the market. Would $5 million be enough to entice Billy Beane to Queens? Might as well get the whole gang back there. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Carlos Beltran be on the Mets next season? What about Oliver Perez or Luis Castillo?
(Steve from CA)
It's an impossible question to answer until we know who the GM is and if he can persuade the Wilpons to swallow a lot of money in bad contracts (i.e. Perez and Castillo). (John Perrotto)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc: Thanks for the chat. The Mets. Tyler Kepner in an article in the NYT this morning says, basically, the pitching is fine and up to a pennant race, it's run support that has doomed the Mets. (Defense isn't that great either.) We have certainly seen their inability to hit for Santana, who has lost three in a row recently because the team can't plate runs for him. And injuries don't tell the whole tale. Do you see this in the numbers? Is it mostly (home) park effects? This team was not, I think, built correctly to score runs at Citifield. Does your view of the numbers bear this out?
(BeplerP from New York City)
The offense isn't good, as you say. They have a .255 TAv, which is five points below the league average. So it isn't necessarily bad, but it's no better than the Athletics or the Indians, neither of which is known for their lineup. A couple of things: not playing Pagan every day, not having a healthy Beltran from day one, Jason Bay being concussed and not having a chance to redeem his seaso and Jose Reyes deciding walking isn't cool anymore put a dent in an offense that should have been much better. They were capable of being an 85-90 win team if things broke right for them, but they have had more go wrong than right.

That's not to say they are without blame of course--there were a lot of risky players on the roster (Oliver Perez, Jeff Francoeur)--but the lineup was designed to succeed at Citi. The problem was losing a lot of OBP sources that would have helped them in a park designed to help pitchers. Let's not get into how Jerry Manuel handled it though. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know you lean toward the Yankee side of town, but what's next for the Mets? The core of Wright-Reyes-Beltran-Santana brought them only one deep playoff run. Put on your Omar hat for a second: Blow it up? Build around Wright/Reyes?
(Gino Felino from Brooklyn)
I won't put on my Omar hat because if I owned the Mets, Omar wouldn't have a head, which is to say that I'd probably make a change based on the Luis Castillo deal alone, never mind Oliver Perez. Castillo was an easy first-guess mistake, Perez probably had some chance of working out, not a good one, but a chance. Signing Jason Bay just to seem like they were doing something despite the poor fit was also a predictable misfire, and the panting pursuit of Bengie Molina just pathetic. In fairness to Minaya, we really don't know how much he's dancing on ownership's string, and it does seem pretty likely that all that Madoff business affected the club in some way. The farm system has been dead, and that's a big problem... If you "blow it up" but keep Wright and Reyes (which they should), what do you really have to trade? (Steven Goldman)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)More likely to show up at a baseball game this season: Oliver Perez or Amelia Earhart? My HackingMass team would like to know.
(ekanenh from capitol city)
Amelia Earhart always had better control than Perez. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)what are the chances of Oliver Perez returning to 1-1.5 WAR respectability?
(escapeNihlism from Ithaca, New York)
For those of you who don't follow me on Twitter (@tommy_bennett), I am a big facial hair booster. In that regard, I think this past offseason has done quite a bit to boost Ollie's value. More pragmatic considerations suggest greater caution, but I think one win ought to be in reach this year. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does this make sense for the Mets and Cubs? Cubs trade Carlos Zambrano and Alfonso Soriano to the Mets for Luis Castillo, Oliver Perez and Fernando Martinez.
(Matt from Whippleville, NY)
It might work for the Mets, but there's no way it works for the Cubs. Perez is even more dubious as assets go than the Big Z, and Castillo's somebody only the Mets were willing to afford. Put Milton Bradley in Soriano's place, however, and maybe you make Jim Hendry fidget about personal wish fulfillment. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the your last unfiltered spot - it really helped clarify some thing for me. My question is in reference to a potential sim league (Diamond Mind) transaction but am curious as to your thoughts for the sake of MLB. Howie Kendrick for Jon Sanchez. Who gets the better end of this deal for the rest of the year? Rest of the player's careers?
(JM from Tucson)
Let me ask you this... if Sanchez didn't throw a no-hitter, would there be this hype? Bud Smith and Anibal Sanchez have also thrown no-hitters. Sanchez has talent but I really do fear his career takes the Oliver Perez route instead of the Matt Cain route. I'd need to know more about the league, like who you have in the infield and your staff but I do want to impart not to overrate Sanchez because he threw a no-hitter. (Eric Seidman)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a Met fan, I would have gladly overpaid Derek Lowe by $2m a year to avoid overpaying Perez by $10M a year. You could just watch Boras box the Mets in on Perez during the offseason, and it was painful. He knew the Mets would give Perez a deal because they "had" to at that point.
(dantroy from davis)
The rest of the Mets front office should have staged an elaborate ruse to trick Minaya into thinking he signed Perez when he had not, just to have him quit the negotiations. Just have one of your other employees walk into the office with a fake mustasche (Boras doesn't have one, but this will distract Minaya long enough for the deed to be done) and claim to be Scott Boras with an offer Minaya can't refuse.

That or call Minaya's house in the middle of the night claiming to be Boras, and then say that Oliver Perez now hates you and won't sign for anything less than 30% of team ownership, 50% of net beer sales and a pony. The downside is that there's a small chance Minaya would still go for it. (Marc Normandin)
2009-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a lifetime Met fan. Is it my imagination-- or has Omar Minaya been doing a horrible job as GM and it's all just coming to roost this year?
(sturock from Brooklyn)
I really like Omar personally and it's hard to truly judge the Mets because they have so many key injuries. However, their lack of depth is glaring and I'll never understand Oliver Perez at three years and $36 million. So, yet, I would say it's come home to roost and his job could be on the line if they end up under .500. (John Perrotto)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Seems to me that under almost any injury-recovery circumstance that occurs, the Mets are better off with hold-and-pray rather than trying to deal for one or two starters to try to salvage the season. I suppose if 4 of their 6 key DL residents (Beltran, Reyes, Maine, Perez?) return right after the ASB and are effective they might wish they had reinforcements, but more likely a trade is an expensive fool's errand. Yes?
(mglick0718 from Oakland)
I still think they're better off tying to find a starting pitcher who might help for the stretch run, because I don't think they can count on Livan Hernandez or John Maine, let alone Oliver Perez; that sounds like an October rotation that gets beat. So they can hold-and-pray, sure, but I'd rather they tried to do the most they might with their opportunity. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)How likely is it Jonathan Sanchez is the new Oliver Perez?
(beta461 from SF)
Matters do seem to be making that sort of turn, don't they? Even so, we might say the same about Andrew Miller after consecutive bad outings. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does it make me a bad person for rooting for Oliver Perez extra hard because I own his jersey?
(Pat Andriola from Tufts)
No, but it does suggest you occasionally suffer from poor judgment in picking the thing up in the first place. (Steven Goldman)
2009-04-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any concern with Oliver Perez, who was throwing his fastball in the mid 80's over the weekend?
(John from NH)
None, really. Every pitcher goes through this. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is the Mets new field facing the same direction, ie how will the winds change?
(Steve from San Diego)
I just got this question the other day about the new Yankees stadium - does everybody have wind on the brain, or are you just trying to decide where to put Oliver Perez on your draft lists?

Home plate at Shea faced due east, at Citi it'll be more northeast. However, I think the bigger effect will be the ballpark shape: Shea was an open-ended C, so the wind off Flushing Bay tended to whip around the curve of the stands and freeze everyone to death, even on nights in mid-May when it was perfectly pleasant that day and who would have thought to bring a jacket? (Not that I have personal experience of this or anything.) Citi is more enclosed in the outfield, so the wind patterns will likely be affected, but how I couldn't even begin to guess.

What I'm seriously wondering about is whether the flight patterns at LaGuardia are remaining the same, and if so what that will mean for airplane flyovers. Those planes you would see out beyond the outfield at Shea are going to make quite the racket if the new stadium is 1000 feet closer to the flight path. (Neil deMause)
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will we look back on 2009 as a lost opportunity for the Mets? Speaking specifically about not picking up another corner OF and apparently thinking that signing Tim Redding and Freddy Garcia's corpse is improving the rotation.
(Jason from NY)
It would complete the trilogy of lost opportunities, wouldn't it? Another one would pretty much make the Mets something like the new Red Sox in terms of historic fold-ups and inflicted agony in a major metropolitan area, no? I'm not busted up over Redding or Garcia--like Jay Jaffe pointed out earlier in his column today, that's not bad for a fifth starter selection--I'm more concerned that Oliver Perez and John Maine aren't consistent enough to flesh out the front four. Add in the faith in Church, the overvaluing of Snyder, going high on Luis Castillo... there's plenty to regret, but Omar's taste in fifth starters wouldn't be one of them. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any chance that Daniel Murphy would be able to play second base if the Mets gave him a chance there? The kid's got an incredible work ethic and although he doesn't have too much athleticism, he does have a lot of minor league infield experience. He wouldn't be that much worse than Dan Uggla... would he?
(dtrainmets from NYC)
The people who saw him in limited time in Arizona said that he can't play the position. I might run him out there occasionally, say when Johan Santana or Oliver Perez is pitching and the opponent starts a righty, but he can't stay out there every day. The Mets have some tradition of doing this--Kevin Mitchell played some shortstop behind Sid Fernandez back in the day to get an extra bat in the lineup. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-12-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Mets planning on signing a starter? Santana Pelfrey Maine seems like only 3 guys to me.
(Mike from Queens)
Not to mention there are reasons to worry about what the future holds for Pelfrey and Maine, and I'm not a big Niese believer. I think if they want to be serious about their shot at the NL East--and their investment in the pen makes it clear that they think they are so far--they have to sign a starter, ideally one who's a bit more reliable than Oliver Perez. Keep in mind that Omar's been busy, however, and can't be everywhere at once--they'll add a starter in January. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you're a GM this offseason and looking for a starter but want to stay out of the CC sweepstakes, whom among these three would you go after: Sheets (great but fragile), Dempster (one year wonder?), or Burnett (headcase but put up great numbers pitching in AL East)? Am I missing someone?
(deadmonkeyhead from CA)
Among possible free agents? Oliver Perez should have some really big upside to the manager or pitching coach who believes he can get 10% more consistency out of him. Don't know if there really is such an animal, but I bet someone will want to try. (Steven Goldman)
2008-08-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any idea why the Mets weren't able to get any of the players they were looking at?
(TLivingston from Sonoma, CA)
I don't think the Mets were looking very hard, for better or worse. They seem convinced that Fernando Tatis is for real, that they'll get Ryan Church back at some point, that the rotation will magically hold together despite John Maine's cuff strain, Mike Pelfrey's innings limit, Pedro Martinez's assorted ailments, Oliver Perez's volatility and all that.

I'm not sure I want to bet against all of that by sitting on my hands, but as a team that can afford to take on salary, they have some mobility during the waiver trading period. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)After apparently coming into his own, Gio Gonzalez just took another step back recently with yet another poor AAA performance. Gio Gonzalez = Oliver Perez? Hard-throwing erratic lefties who can either be lights out out any given day or chalk up a 2/3 of an inning 7 runs line just as easily.
(dtrainmets from NYC)
Not the worst comparison on the surface, but Gonzalez has that cosmic bender and I've never heard attitude issues. Perez was a terror when he was in Indy, not disruptive, but just didn't care. (Will Carroll)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Mets trade: Oliver Perez, Eddie Kunz Cardinals trade: Ryan Ludwick, Bryan Anderson
(skiier94 from NY)
No. (Will Carroll)
2008-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Oliver Perez for Anthony Reyes?
(WhatDude77 from Roslyn, NY)
Done. (Dayn Perry)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know he was touted a bit for his strikeout rates in the minors and I was a big fan of him at the time but his couple of years bouncing between the bigs and AAA and the rotation and the bullpen seemed to have dropped him off the radar - with his hot start this year what do you think of the Giants' Jonathan Sanchez? Flash in the pan or a legitimate #3 behind Lincecum and Cain going forward?
(Jake from S.F.)
I think I got off the bandwagon at the wrong time, and I should have known better. The comment in BP2K8 was mine, describing how the Giants completely mishandled him the last few years. Great live arm, tremendous stuff, some command issues. He might always battle the control and be a high-variance guy, but that makes him, what, Oliver Perez? That plays. Bad on me for jumping off. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)I don't put much stock in spring stats, but John Maine has looked dominant this spring. Is this something the Mets should be excited about?
(chuckstein17 from Long Beach, NY)
Well, it's something to feel good about, certainly. If Maine and Oliver Perez prove to be solid contributors behind Johan Santana, Pedro becomes gravy to some extent. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pick one out of the three for next year. Ted Lilly, Oliver Perez, or Phil Hughes?
(Steve from St. Louis)
Ooh, that's such a tough question. I expect Perez to have the best starts, but probably also the worst ones. Ted Lilly should pick up a bunch of wins and strike out a lot of hitters, and Phil Hughes could be the most average or the most productive.

I'll get back to you. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Mets have got to be kidding me that they're going into the season with this rotation, right? Or are they planning to exhume Terry Leach's corpse to round out the staff?
(ElAngelo from Brooklyn, NY)
I was expecting a Bruce Berenyi sighting, actually. It's definitely a pretty dodgy unit, because I don't think anybody should take the '07 seasons of Maine and Oliver Perez as proof that they'll be just fine going forward. That's why I think they need to be taken seriously in the Johan sweepstakes, although it would be pretty amusing if they wound up one Milledge short of being able to swing the deal, just because Omar Minaya was obsessed over the marginal differences between Brian Schneider and Johnny Estrada.
