BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Standard 5x5 NL-only keeper league - is Wandy Rodriguez (with $3 cost for next year) fair value for me to offer in exchange for Jimmy Rollins (who will not be kept next year)?
(Kingpin from Grinnell, IA)
Yes, it's a good opening offer. If he doesn't love it, then you can shift, but it's not insulting at all. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)In my deep 16 team H2H dynasty league. I have a pitching staff of Homer Bailey, Wandy Rodriguez, Mark Buerhle, Ricky Romero, and Edison Volquez. Will this rotation be problematic? Even given the size of the league?
(Brent from California)
Yeah, you've got some issues here... you're at least one front-line starter short. Doesn't need to be a Verlander or Kershaw, but even a Cueto or Kennedy or Shields type would be a big help. (Cory Schwartz)
2011-08-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)I don't know if this is on the table, but would the Rox taking on the whole Wandy Rodriguez contract be a bad decision for them? It doesn't look THAT out of the line with the marketplace and I assume the Rox will be trying to contend in 12.
(Rob from Alaska)
I never thought I'd find myself saying this, but I agree with you. (That didn't come out right -- agreeing with you, Rob, isn't something I've always considered inconceivable. Valuing Wandy Rodriguez that much is). They need pitching, he provides pitching, and with their offense in an underwhelming division, there's no reasons they shouldn't make a push this year AND next year. (Ken Funck)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina, let me ask what may become an annual question- who do you think will be this year's breakout pitchers (aside from Latos). When I first asked you this question in person years ago you said you really liked a young stud named Danny Haren (worked out nice) and last year you said Anderson and Romero (not bad). For 2011...? Thanks, Dan
(DanDaMan from SeaCliff)
I don't have any special Kreskin-like abilities... I guess I see those sorts of expectations as eminently reasonable and predictable. This year, if I had to say "he's turning the corner," I'd peg John Danks, Colby Lewis, and Wandy Rodriguez as people who will surpass expectations. (Christina Kahrl)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite players to watch this season? Who ya rootin' for?
(Goo Goo the Cat from Prowlin' Around, PA)
Rooting for? Well, I suppose I'm no supposed to root for players, but c'mon, how can you help it? I'm hoping to see John Danks bust out and get the sort of attention he deserves, and for Gordon Beckham to put everything together and be the star we thought he'd be. I want to see Wandy Rodriguez deliver that back half over a full season. I'm looking forward to seeing Carlos Zambrano get back to being in the news for his pitching. I'm wondering if Andy LaRoche puts up more WARP than any other NRI in anybody's camp if he can win the A's job at third base. I want to see Jim Thome's 600th career home run in person. I want to enjoy a full season of Starlin Castro at shortstop, having had to spend too much time away from Chicago last summer. I want to see what Mike Stanton and Logan Morrison do for the Fish, since that's about as entertaining a tandem of hitting prospects of similar vintage on any team anywhere. That's a few, but there are more. (Christina Kahrl)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Someone threw a Wandy Rodriguez comp on Gio Soto - you buy it?
(Adam from OH)
No. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Marc, thanks for the chat and your great work. Just wanted to get your thoughts on Wandy Rodriguez. Do you think he's a good bet to bounce back the second half and a good bet to be a quality starting pitcher over the next few years?
(DS from LA)
I'm concerned by the drop in strikeouts and the defense behind him, but I still like Wandy for a rebound. I'll write something up about him soon--I've been looking at his numbers lately to try to get a feel for what it is we can expect. (Marc Normandin)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am stubborn and stuck with Wandy Rodriguez...is the corner being turned or is it just a bunch of weak opponents? 2nd half outlook for him?
(Chip from Sf)
I mentioned this earlier, I'll be writing about Wandy soon. I like him a lot, so I'm optimistic, but we'll see if some deeper digging changes my mind. (Marc Normandin)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think we'll one day see a pitching strategy that aggresively takes into account matchups and/or ballparks? Something like the Angels or Astros shuffling their rotations to have Ervin Santana or Wandy Rodriguez pitching at home more often than typical under a set rotation. Or the Royals avoiding pitching Banny in a hitter's park? Is it realistic to expect pitchers to be able to adjust to an extra days rest or one less days rest here or there? Are the potential gains enough to offset the losses from shorter rest of the need to use an extra starter here and there?
(blaseta from Calgary)
Not to channel Steven Goldman here, but the idea of a set rotation is fairly recent. In the 1950s and before, managers often juggled rotations to have their best pitchers pitch against the best opposition.

In general, the game has shifted too much to "roles," especially on the pitching side. I suspect players can handle a lot more uncertainty than is generally thought, and that the creation of all of these roles has been a net negative for the industry as a whole. But it keeps managers insulated from criticism, which is the real goal. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What the insert expletive are the astros going to do about their pitching staff besides trying to run Roy Oswalt out for 300 innings? Does there even seem to be some semblance of a plan?
(matt from austin)
They're going to put on rose-tinted glasses, hope that Wandy Rodriguez continues to develop (he lopped nearly 2 runs off his PERA last year, suggesting that his gains were real enough), hope that Felipe Paulino pitches like a guy who's one of the top two prospects in a system that's much stronger than Houston, hope that Brandon Backe's elbow continues to hold together, and that Woody Williams can pitch like it's 2003 and preserve the team's ball budget... are you detecting a trend here? (Jay Jaffe)
