BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you trust more: Fernando Rodney or a chick with a paw print tattoo??
(Brian from Auburn)
That depends where the paw print tattoo is located. (Ben Carsley)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike, would you deal Aaron Sanchez and Jackie Bradley for Trumbo, Jim Johnson and Fernando Rodney??? Thanks
(John from Boston)
Can you keep forever or do you have limits? In a keep forever that seems like a lot of ceiling (particularly with Sanchez) to give up for two uninspiring closers and Trumbo, but in a league with shorter term keeps that might be worth the gamble. My instincts tell me to pass, but if you can easily replace guys like Sanchez/Bradley in a farm draft, it might be worth it. (Mike Gianella)
2013-12-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Liveliest fastball you ever saw? Some live fastballs in minors today? Thanks, man.
(CyMature from Cooperstown Retirement Home)
Fernando Rodney is up there, in terms of movement and velocity. Taijuan Walker has one of the better minor league fastballs. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Seems like there are a number of older "proven closers" on the free agent market with only a handful of opportunities out there- Joaquin Benoit, Grant Balfour, Joe Nathan, Fernando Rodney, Edward Mujica not to mention the injury reclamation projects like Brian Wilson, Ryan Madson and Joel Hanrahan. With the success that the Cardinals had moving Edward Mujica back two innings and then doing the same with Trevor Rosenthal and Carlos Martinez in the playoffs, are the days of spending big on closers finally over? Does a team like the Cubs with no great in house solution and a smart front office take advantage of the oversaturated market or pass on all those guys?
(Scott from LA)
We'll continue to see a wide variety of approaches to how teams handle the late innings. On the one hand there is certainly something to the idea that there are people who can close and people who can't. But you'd be hard pressed to get a closer enough innings in a season to justify paying big for them (unless, like the Yankees, Phillies, Red Sox, etc. you simply have the money to spend). St. Louis has such a glut of arms they have no reason to go outside the org, but for many teams there simply aren't good reasons to limit a young, high ceiling arm to a closer role. I imagine the Cubs will look for a reasonably priced arm that they think can handle the job, rather than committing more money over multiple years. (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Would you trade Tulowitzki in a package for Stanton if you are playing this year? The owner in my dynasty league is looking to sell Stanton and I'm on the fence about it since I am in contention.
(Joe from Seattle)
Yes, I can support that. In other news, Fernando Rodney is still bad (Jason Collette)
2013-03-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pedro Strop's fastball had great armside movement last night. Who has the best tail on their fastball in the majors?
(Matt from Chicago)
I think Chris Sale. Fernando Rodney for the relievers. Check out our leader board tool, use the HMOV sort (keep in mind Tampa's PFX system is a little off so their lefties seem to get extra tail) http://www.baseballprospectus.com/pitchfx/leaderboards/ (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)I am in an NL only league that is transitioning from a 4x4 to a 5x5. Is there a good way to determine how many runs and k's I need to plan on to stay top three in those categories? Do that devalue saves and steals?
(Freddy from Fremont)
I'm not sure what your format is, but I posted an article last Friday with category averages in mixed, AL, and NL-only formats http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=19686. Saves and steals are both devalued in 5x5, but saves are devalued significantly more. Fernando Rodney earned $51 in 4x4 last year (according to my own valuation system) but "only" $32 in 5x5. (Mike Gianella)
2012-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Looking through the FA class of RP and SP, who are this year's Fernando Rodney, Hiroki Kuroda and Wei-Yun Chen?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Projecting relievers is a fool's errand, given the sample sizes involved and the variation in reliever usage from year to year. But I'm a fool, so allow me to take a stab at it. A few names that stand out as potential bargains are Jason Grilli, Joel Peralta, and Octavio Dotel - Dotel might be the Julio Franco of this generations relief pitchers.

On the jukebox: Guns N' Roses, "My Michelle" (Doug Thorburn)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)You think that the Angels were kicking themselves a bit at the end of the season when Fernando Rodney broke Eck's ERA record? While Ernesto Frieri looked good, he was the team's 3rd or 4th closer for the year and wasn't even on the team to begin the season.
(jlarsen from chicago)
I doubt the Angels are kicking themselves. They got good value out of Frieri, and Rodney had shown zero indication that he was capable of doing anything close to what he ended up doing. But such is the nature of relievers. Plus the hat. I still want to fix that for him. (Geoff Young)
2012-09-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)Any explanation on why Rays always to get hits on pick-ups and trades that don't seem great/good at on-set and turn into gems in long-run? Fernando Rodney and Jeff Keppinger are doing quite well in unexpected roles for them. It seems Rays always find gold in what now should be called "The Yearly Rays Reliever Reclamation Project"(Al Reyes, Juan Cruz, Joaquin Benoit, Rafael Soriano, Kyle Farnsworth, Fernando Rodney)
(jlarsen from chicago)
I think some of it is just great big-league scouting and statistical analysis, but a lot of it is trial and error, too. The Rays are set up in such a way that they HAVE to sign a bunch of those guys, and while a lot of them will work because the Rays are good at what they do, a lot will fail because they're inherently gambles. They haven't had a lot of luck with veteran catchers the last couple years, and there was that whole Pat Burrell thing. (Bill Parker)
2012-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is with closers and insane post-save celebrations? Right now, it seems as if the Top 3 are Fernando Rodney's Arrow-launching, Jose Valverde's wiggle-and-stomp and Brian Wilson's "rage"-filled X. Which is your favorite?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Favorite? Can I pick (D) none of the above? I also wish guys would stop untucking their shirts as soon as the last out is recorded. That's dumb. (Ian Miller)
2012-09-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Fernando Rodney, newest Rays Relief Rehab success-story, has shot arrows all around MLB. Question is, does his "come out of nowhere" season garner him any 1st place CY votes and should Rays fans expect the same out of him next year or will he show some major regression?
(jlarsen from chicagoland)
There is very little I'm less interested in than trying to read the minds of Cy Young voters, but I would really hope that a reliever doesn't end up winning the Cy. As for regression, the short answer is that if you have to ask about a guy, he's probably going to regress, at least in the way that most people use the word. But to be pedantic about it, players really don't regress the way we commonly talk about -- regression to the mean is a description of POPULATIONS of players. Now population tendencies are a good input to our predictions, but regression isn't destiny. (Colin Wyers)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)The closer carousel has already begun. What current closers should be looking over their shoulders and who will they see?
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
I’ll give you three names:

Most likely: Brett Myers – I think he’ll be traded and that Fernando Rodriguez or Wilton Lopez take over.

Very likely: Grant Balfour – Again, traded. Ryan Cook is the next in line.

The wild card: Fernando Rodney. Kyle Farnsworth could be back in early-to-mid June. Maybe the Rays just slide Farnsworth into the eighth inning spot but I wouldn’t be too surprised if they gave Farnsworth the job back and let Rodney go into a set-up role. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you please write Fernando Rodney's Hall of Fame induction speech? We are happy to wait a few minutes ...
(Fred F. from Durham)
There are some nights where I don't know how the guy ever gets hit. Great arm strength, sells the changeup--which has good fade--and the sinker gets good run. He hasn't missed the slider one bit. I'm not sure if the improved control is here to stay, but if so, he's going to be one of the league's better relievers should he stay healthy. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)More tilted hat: Juan Francisco or Fernando Rodney?
(Kevin from Normal)
Francisco. Jason Parks needs to start a #tilt movement. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wanna talk about the Angels . . . due for a continued collapse . . . still starting Jeff Mathis, still employing Brandon Wood and Reggie Willits, hiring Fernando Rodney to close, and still riding Scott Kazmir - now the worse starting pitcher in the league?
(Scoresheetwiz from Great Lakes Region)
Writers like to pick the Twins every year just because the Twins seem to overcome expectations, and they like to pick the Angels because they have a long track-record of excellence, but I think in both cases they've missed the boat this year. These teams had maybe the worst offseasons in baseball. In the case of the Angels, I still have some belief in Willits as a fourth/fifth outfielder, but as I discussed in today's Broadside (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=13452) the Mathis thing is terrible and retaining Brandon Wood simply cruel.

I used to have great admiration for Mike Scioscia's talents, but it seems like he's ossified and his worst instincts now control him. (Steven Goldman)
2011-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think the first closer to lose his job will be?
(mef from Brooklyn, NY)
There's still some jobs that aren't totally decided yet, and most guys who have to wait this long to claim the gig usually have a pretty short leash. Among those who we know will start the year at closer, I've got to go with Fernando Rodney of the Angels, who's just not that good and has a few guys behind him, even with Scott Downs' injury. I particularly like Jordan Walden there.

Honorable mention goes to Francisco Cordero, who's declining and can't possibly fend off Aroldis Chapman all year. (Mike Petriello)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)I can't trade Fernando Rodney for a bag of dirt in my keeper league - it's like people are expecting him to lose the closer's role. Does he keep it through the whole season?
(Eric from Va)
I doubt it. His command is shaky, he is hittable, and he doesn't miss bats at an elite level. I don't think he survives the season in that role. (Jason Parks)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dave Dombrowski has also made some questionable free agent deals with relievers: Troy Percival - $12M for 2 years when his K/IP rate was in freefall Todd Jones - over $17M for 3 years when he was never consistently great On the other hand, besides letting Lyon go, he's let others sign Jamie Walker and Fernando Rodney to long term deals. At least he doesn't tend to reward middle relievers with multi-year deals.
(Michael from Detroit, MI)
So much about relievers is guess-work. Both Percival and Jones were grasping at closers, and I understand the desperation if not the choices. At least he was aiming at the good part of the bullpen, not, as you said, at low-leverage middle relievers. Can I say again: Chan-Ho Park. (Steven Goldman)
2009-12-29 15:00:00 (link to chat)Pursuant to Carlos's question about Matthews, I would like to know if you think any deal from this year is just that headscratching bad. I mean, few are as terrible as Matthews's deal was, but does anything come close?
(Jim Clancy from Exhibition Stadium)
Brandon Lyon, just because of the silliness of giving a middle reliever a three-year deal. Fernando Rodney,just because of the silliness of giving a Fernando Rodney a two-year deal. Garret Atkins, because the Orioles already had a fat, slow, pseudo-corner-guy with a huge platoon split who hits into lots of DPs. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-07 14:30:00 (link to chat)Hi Jay .... thanks for the chat! Do you think the Tigers have their own version of the "Joba Rules" for Verlander and Porcello, and that's why we didn't see Verlander for an inning late in last night's "all hands on deck" game?
(dianagramr from NYC)
I don't think so, but I do think that Jim Leyland did a lousy job of managing his pitching staff last night. Then again, when all you've got is one errant pitch from Brandon Lyon or Fernando Rodney standing between you and the offseason, then some of the blame also falls on the GM for not getting you the right parts.

Having said that, I think the Tigers have done a fantastic job of handling Verlander and Porcello, getting a greater number of useful innings out of both at young ages without injury than, say, the Yankees have out of their blue chip youngsters. On the other hand, Jeremy Bonderman is something of a cautionary tale from the same organization. Sometimes they just get hurt.

Verlander's beyond the "Injury Nexus" window, so the "rules" don't apply to him in the same way they apply to an under-23 pitcher. Bringing him into last night's game is something Leyland might have considered, but remember, the kid's thrown over 500 pitches over his last four starts, and may not have a lot of gas in the tank coming back under such circumstances.

(Steve from Detroit)
I like the strikeouts, but he's going to have innings where he gives up homers and walks (he hasn't given up any of either). If he keeps the job though, it's not like 30 is some incredible number to reach. (Marc Normandin)
