BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Any AL set-up men you like to potentially get the closer job this year?
(Dave from Boston)
Whoever is setting up Tommy Hunter seems like a pretty good bet in Baltimore. Otherwise, Joe Smith is a good get in AL-only. Mike Scioscia showed wavering confidence with Ernesto Frieri last year and Smith could steal the job if Frieri falters. (Mike Gianella)
2012-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)In situations such as with the Angels coming down to right now looking inside themselves from game to game knowing that what lies in front can be always to go pitch-by-pitch, game-by-game, so that when it's time to wind down the season and the last game is played you can talk to the mirror and say whether the A's come back to reality or you're in the wild cards, outloud, "I ... KNOW ... I ... LEFT IT IN THE FIELD." What do you think?
(Jose Mota from Anaheim)
I think you should speak with manager Mike Scioscia! (Ian Miller)
2012-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)How disturbed should I be that Vernon Wells has batted second in Mike Scioscia's lineup? I figured that I'd still be pulling hairs at the fact that the man still plays at this point in the season, but this is going to drive me off the reservation.
(hchomeau6 from Newport Beach, CA)
I don't think Scioscia cares a great deal about the run potential of batting orders, first off. Which is, depending on your viewpoint, either wasteful or fairly advanced, given how much arguing we do over decisions that are worth just a few runs a year. I think he'd rather use the lineup for psychological purposes, if you want to call them that, and right now he's throwing a bunch of lineups out there to see where people are comfortable. Vernon Wells talked about batting second in spring, and so it's just a little gamble to see if it pays off. This is probably a lot of action for nothing, and he/we will certainly never know if it worked. But there's only so much for a manager to do from 9 to 5 every day, and I don't begrudge him these whims.

Independent of the batting order: Holy goodness Vernon Wells is so bad, and shouldn't be in the lineup at all, probably. His OBP last year was .248, I believe. That's so low that even his 10th percentile PECOTA projection didn't see him repeating it, forecasting a .267 OBP. Tenth-percentile! He's at, I believe, .241 or so right now. (Sam Miller)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)So, the Angels? I know, SSS. But I think people were way too quick to say their offense was solved with Pujols and Morales. And that bullpen, yeesh.
(Patrick B. from New York)
Given a reasonable sample size, Pujols, Morales and eventually Mike Trout are going to provide a considerable upgrade on last year's offense, which was 10th in the AL in scoring. And while the bullpen may not look impressive, few managers have shown better skill at handling a bullpen year in and year out than Mike Scioscia. Don't count them out just yet. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tell us your favorite Jeff Mathis story.
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
All of these details will be slightly off because I'm going from memory, but the basic facts are: In the 2009 ALCS, the Angels were playing the Yankees and Mathis doubles to lead off the tenth inning of a tie game. Scioscia sacrifices, so he's on third with one out. Doesn't pinch-run Willits for him. Instead, leaves him in, and Napoli on the bench. Next batter grounds to first, but it was a tough play, I think the first baseman had to dive, but Mathis was the runner and Mathis is slowish so Mathis doesn't score. I'm alllll up on the Internet being like "Man that move is going to define Mike Scioscia for 50 years" and stuff. Run doesn't score, game goes on, 20 minutes later I had to leave the park for another engagement, and as I'm walking out I hear a massive roar. No radio in my car. Call a friend, find out Mathis doubled home the winning run. Get to a computer 15 minutes later and everybody who has ever hated me has gone onto the blog post I'd written with some variation of "Wrong again, dumbskull." It was great. (Sam Miller)

Next batter grounds to first, but it was a tough play, I think the first baseman had to dive, but Mathis was the runner and Mathis is slowish so Mathis doesn't score. I'm alllll up on the Internet being like "Man that move is going to define Mike Scioscia for 50 years" and stuff. Run doesn't score, game goes on, 20 minutes later I had to leave the park for another engagement, and as I'm walking out I hear a massive roar. No radio in my car. Call a friend, find out Mathis doubled home the winning run. Get to a computer 15 minutes later and everybody who has ever hated me has gone onto the blog post I'd written with some variation of "Wrong again, dumbskull." It was great. (Sam Miller)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Folks keep saying that the Angels have a problem at 3b but Callaspo had a reasonably good season and is only 28 (almost 29). What do they see as wrong with this?
(Steve N from Delaware)
Agreed; I'd rather see him out there than Trumbo (as mentioned earlier). The consensus seems to be that the club needs to find room for Trumbo's power in the lineup, but I don't share that opinion. We'll see what Mike Scioscia thinks. (Cory Schwartz)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)So will Conger ever get any time with the Angels in 2012 or beyond?
(ttt from Work (ugh))
The Angels are trying to lock Iannetta up, reportedly, so that would say not. The way they wouldn't let Conger hit against lefties, at all, like ever, also shows how limited they think he is. At this point, it's hard to see Conger developing much more as a defensive catcher, so it'll depend on whether Mike Scioscia develops a different attitude toward his backstops. (Sam Miller)
2011-09-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)With Strasburg back and Zimmerman in the fold am I crazy for thinking that a good lefty bat would make the Nationals contenders next year?
(Steve N from Delaware)
How was the hurricane for you in Delaware? I hear a lot about SC, NY, NJ, VT, but not so much about Delaware... Does your lefty bat mean that Davey Johnson won't be leading off Ian Desmond and his .290 OBP? What's up with that? He used to be such a brilliant manager. Except for that whole letting Dwight Gooden pitch to Mike Scioscia in '88 thing... (Steven Goldman)
2011-09-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Mike Scioscia crazy or is Hank Conger's defense really that bad? Would the rest of the league just live with it because the bat is so good?
(Aaron from YYZ)
Well, I don't know if the bat is THAT good, but the total package is obviously a much better one than Jeff Mathis. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are you?
(Your existential self from ???)
First off, Yay for horrible formatting...


I help cover the Angels for the Orange County Register, and I also write the Annotated Box Score for Canada. I am Baseball Prospectus' second-newest writer, and you probably recognize me as the author of three BP pieces that you can't remember. To help you out,
they were: A piece on Mike Scioscia and his catchers; a piece on pitchers who don't
use off-speed pitches and why I love them; and a piece on Error Faces.

I don't have a particular area of baseball expertise, which means I should say I'm a
generalist but that probably oversells it. Mostly, I would describe myself as tangential.
I often write about parts of the game that are tangential to the action itself, and I
often go off on tangents to avoid doing the work that I'm supposed to be doing.

In life, I enjoy ranking my favorite things, reading about bugs, eating avocados, and
having the exact same political views that you have so we should get along just fine. My
musical taste is not quite as good as Goldstein's, but not quite as bad as Normandin's. (Sam Miller)
2011-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Conger ever get called up or is he paid to little for the Angels to like him? Do they need to sign him to a massive contract and have someone better in the minors to play him?
(ttt from Work)
At this point, it'll be more or less like last year: He'll be a September call-up, and then when the Angels are out of the AL West race, they'll pull Mathis aside and tell him they want to give the kid some looks. Very unlikely Conger plays meaningful games this year. The defensive reports out of Salt Lake aren't good for Conger, and the defensive reports, as you know, are all that matter.

I will say that the controversy over Conger vs. Mathis riles me up far, far less than Napoli vs. Mathis did. Conger is clearly a better hitter than Mathis, but he's also not a good hitter. His numbers in the majors are poor, and over his last two months (semi-arbitrary endpoints) he batted .157/.263/.277. And that's while being protected almost entirely from left-handed pitching, which he struggles against. Since he was sent down to Salt Lake, he's hitting right around the league average. And he can't throw. I don't agree with playing Mathis over Conger, but I also like to give Mike Scioscia some benefit of the doubt on the whole catcher defense thing. The gap between Mathis and Conger might be narrowly within that margin, at least until Conger plays better.

I used to be disgusted when Mathis played over Napoli. When he plays over Conger, I try to be amused. (Sam Miller)
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)Hey Mike, If you had to be stuck on a desert island with one of the players from the softball episode of the Simpsons, who would it be and why? And this excludes Mike Scioscia as thats just too obvious.
(EephusBlue from San Francisco)
I can't pick Mindy Simmons, right? And I assume Steve Sax has already been sent to the chair for all those murders he committed in New York. Probably Ozzie Smith, then. I want to see all his pictures from the mystery dimension. (Mike Petriello)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which is the better nickname for eventual Angels catcher Hank Conger - King Conger, Hammerin' Hank, or Mike Scioscia squashed my dreams and won't let me play?
(Chad from Pasadena)
Bong Conger would be a great nickname. Speaking of, its time I end the chat here. 3:15 minutes and I want to go on, but I have to eat something, change my diaper, fee my cats, worship the Lord, and record a podcast. Thanks for all the great questions. Sorry that I left so many on the shelf. Next time. Lo mejor--JP (Jason Parks)
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, any updates on Hank Conger's defense? can he stick at C in the majors? what kind of power numbers can he ultimately put up?
(Matt from PA)
He's a funny guy to talk about, because him being good enough defensively to stick in the majors and him being good enough defensively to play every day for Mike Scioscia are two entirely different things. He's a below-average, but not horrible defender, but I'm not sure that's enough for that team. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-01-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming no further moves, how do you see things shaking out in the AL West? What's the one key thing that has to go right for each team in order for them to win the division?
(ScotMartin from TX)
It's too early, in my mind, to make predictions but here's what I think needs to happen for each team to win:

The Angels need to keep on keeping on and find a way to outdo their expected pythag by 8-10, which is why Mike Scioscia, in my mind is the game's best manager.
The Rangers need Vlady Guerrero to have a bounceback year because they need more offense.
The Mariners need their pitching and defense to perform at a high level like last last season because they aren't going to score a lot of runs.
The Athletics need their young pitchers to really mature because they're not going to score a lot of runs either. (John Perrotto)
2009-11-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Brandon Wood is freed from Mike Scioscia this offseason?
(Jack from LA)
Depends on how many of their FA hitters they lose. The Angels may need position players next year. Wood's future is tied to that of Chone Figgins. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)When will Mike Scioscia commit to Howie Kendrick? He is the Dusty Baker of the AL, in love with middling infielders. Good thing Neifi Perez is gone.
(Tom from Chicago)
Problem is that while Kendrick was failing to grab hold of the job, Maicer Izturis became quite a little player, especially from the left side of the plate. I'm not sure I can go after Scioscia for playing Izturis. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)Do you think Brandon Wood will be freed of the tyrrany of Mike Scioscia?
(Jake from LA)
The guy deserves a real extended shot, but I have certainly seen cases--though moreso in basketball--where coaches/managers sour on young players and they don't see the light of day. (Eric Seidman)

2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day OneThere have to be higher criteria than that; several skippers use their whole roster. I was looking at some of the transition inning data Eric generated; unsurprisingly, Mike Scioscia's Angels did better than most in the innings where a starter opens the frame but needs to be hooked mid-stream when it comes to runs allowed. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-16 13:00:00NLCS Game Two/ALCS Game OneLove how McCarver saw the replay, which showed the ball in Teixeira's glove and sticks with his opinion despite evidence. And again, with a better angle and closeups! And then he thinks Torii Hunter had a better angle, one the ump thinks should carry any weight. Just a ridiculous sequence.

Hunter was out on a great play by Sabathia and Teixeira.

I also liked that Mike Scioscia pushed Laz Diaz, knowing he wouldn't get run. (Will Carroll)
