BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Lots of closer news this week, but Casey Janssen sounds really banged up. Think Sergio Santos can hold it down all year?
(Tim from Ohio)
Certainly has the talent to do so but I do think Janssen gets a crack when he is healthy. When that is, is another question altogether. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the chance that Sergio Santos takes over as closer for the Jays? Thanks for all your insights!!
(Gary from New Jersey)
I'd say there's a chance ... especially if the Jays do entertain trading Janssen. I don't know what percentage I'd throw on it. Maybe 35 percent or so? I don't think it's likely, but it seems possible. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, who do you foresee getting more saves this year between grilli and janssen?
(chopper from indy)
Hey chopper.

At the moment, I'd go with Jason Grilli. Casey Janssen's health gets me a little nervous, and Sergio Santos -if healthy - might be the best arm in that pen. But Mark Melancon is a risk for Grilli's saves too. I'm leaning Grilli here, not strongly endorsing. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Paul - I'm in a 20 team dynasty league and holding Sergio Santos. I have had a few trade offers (nothing that blew me away though). Am I crazy to still be buying even if his shot to close is somewhat small?
(Justin from Bridgeport)
I would definitely be holding. Writing a potential closer piece for PaintTheBlack.com today and he's on it. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Sergio Santos a good late round target given Janssen's health issues?
(Rick from Ottawa)
Absolutely. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Which closers in waiting might be worth drafting and stashing this year?
(Cal Guy from Cal)
I'd go with Kenley Jansen, Pestano, and Sergio Santos. (Paul Singman)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)If Thornton comes up with the yips again this spring, does CHW go straight to Addison Reed or will Jesse Crain get a shot?
(PepeShady from StPaul)
I thought it was reasonably well established that what Thornton went through last year wasn't "the yips" but an unsuccessful attempt to establish his changeup.

If I'm a team in rebuilding mode, as the Sox should be (but can't truly be given the $82 million owed to Alex Rios and Adam Dunn), I'd probably churn closers if possible, as the Sox did by flipping Sergio Santos. Get the increasingly expensive Thornton to about 20 saves and flip him, then turn to Crain and do the same. By then, Reed will have more than gotten his feet wet in the majors and will be well-prepared to do the job. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-05-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Grady coming back? Im thinking he might be a good buy low target. Im in a 20 team head to head and a guy offered me Sergio Santos and sizemore for Beachy and Lowerie. What do u think?
(mmaurer016 from FLA)
It's so hard to say because of Sizemore's health issues. I probably wouldn't do that trade, but I'm risk averse when it comes to trading talent for oft-injured players. (R.J. Anderson)
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)How high are the ceilings for Sergio Santos, Craig Kimbrel, Zack Braddock and Scott Mathieson? Which is most/least likely to end up as a better-than-average closer?
(leites from New York)
Kimbrell would be my bet for most future saves, but I like every one of those guys. (Kevin Goldstein)
