DateQuestionAnswer
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)For a team that needs a 3B, how much sense would it make to try to pry Brandon Wood away from the Angels? I mean, it seems like he's never actually going to get to play.
(Jay from DC)
I think a lot would depend on which team in which park... put Wood in Houston, for example, and he might be a star. Put him in Denver and see his strikeout rate take a park-induced dip, and people would get over Garrett Atkins or Ian Stewart in a hurry. The problem is that with the Angels (sensibly) going year to year with Figgins, there isn't much incentive for them to do anything differently than was done to, say, Al Rosen's career. Not that Wood's going to be Al Rosen, but I'd love to see what he might do in Phoenix or Denver. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina, My Nats suck like I've never seen a team suck before, and that includes the year the O's lost like 18 in-a-row to start the season. What TA entries do you expect to see from them in the next 6 weeks?
(macman from dc)
It's the kind of offensive suckitude that makes me think of getting to follow the '85 Giants wallow, but at least that brought on a happy ending--Al Rosen and Roger Craig were put in charge, and the Giants were in the playoffs two seasons later. That last point is the one to keep in mind, because in the era of expanded playoff possibilities, the present's endurable because the future doesn't represent a sentence to more of the same, especially not with the kind of talent on the way up in their farm system.

We'll see who Jim Bowden offloads by the end of July, but given how terrible so many players have been, I would expect the Nats to be busy through the end of August, frankly, as they deal away all sorts of talent that ought to make it through waivers (or that they wouldn't miss much if claimed).

As for TA coverage, I want to take a quick swing through the major moves each team's made of late, enjoy exploring the more interesting problems teams have confronted and the solutions they've come up with (especially the Orioles' shortstop situation, which I find fascinating for reasons that defy easy explanation), and settle back into doing stuff regularly again.
