BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-03-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I see Utley's injury as evidence the baseball Gods are frowning on the Phillies for altering the space time continuum in acquiring Cliff Lee. Would Mike Aviles make sense for them? I haven't seen him in any of the speculation currently being tossed around.
(kcroyalsguy from KC)
The Phillies are not going to have a good offense this year. Like their offense will be such that if there was a betting establishment offering you a line of 97 wins, you would be well-served taking the under. As for Aviles, he isn't going to be part of the Royals' future, so sure. Polanco could also probably fill in at 2nd and they could trade for Mark Teahen to play third. I don't know. I'm just not sure the Phillies need to look for stop-gaps. They lost Werth, Howard and Ibanez are platoon players, Dom Brown is hurt and probably wasn't ready anyway. I guess they do have a good starting rotation, from what I hear. (Jeremy Greenhouse)
2010-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hardest player name for you to spell?
(dianagramr from NYC)
I can spell Doug Mientkiewicz and Jarrod Saltalamacchia with the best of them, and I know my Derrek Lee, my Derrick Turnbow and my Derek Jeter, to say nothing of my Jarrod Washburn and my Jered Weaver and my Jaret Wright. I was a spelling bee champ in sixth grade, and also finished second in fourth and third in fifth.

The one that gets me is Mark Teahen. I ALWAYS spell it Teahan, and right now I just had to look again to see that I got it correct. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was thinking of a prospect with a big bat who is close to the majors.
(Jake H from Kansas City)
I think the problem you would run into with such a proposal is how teams are seemingly starting to realize that, while perhaps not ANYONE could be a closer, turning a setup guy into one or a 7th inning guy into one might be more wise than shelling out $10-12 mil for someone with a 4-yr track record of success. I'm thinking specifically about the Braves in this case... like I wouldn't trade Heyward for Soria even if Rafael Soriano/Mike Gonzalez aren't traditional closers. I still think Soria could be traded for 2-3 good, not great pieces better than the likes of guys like Mark Teahen, but not one big guy that will just transform the franchise. (Eric Seidman)
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)any chance the cubs will try and pick up a 4th OF type with reed johnson's injury?
(mike from chicago)
They're looking around for some bench help and Mark Teahen is one name I'm hearing. (John Perrotto)
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Mark Teahen at 2B - a worthwhile shot, or a waste of time?
(BL from Bozeman)
It can't hurt to try it, but I'm not optimistic about the outcome. Still, while they wait until they can find a dance partner to talk trade later this spring, it's worth exploring. I still have my hopes that Alberto Callaspo pans out, and it isn't like Esteban German getting the job would be an unhappy development. There's only one outright wrong answer, and its name is Bloomquist. (Christina Kahrl)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-09-29 10:30:00Tigers/White Sox Play-In GameGreg Pizzo (China, Maine) asks: "Does the terrific September by the Royals mean anything? Before the season started, we probably would have thought 75 wins was pretty good, but did they find out anything about their 2009 Royals using this September?"

I'm not so sure all that much progress was made. Guys like Billy Butler and Alex Gordon didn't take steps forward, they got a harsh reminder that Brian Bannister doesn't have a lot of upside, and even things that were good for them to have sorted out--like Tony Pena Jr. and Mark Teahen aren't regulars--didn't necessarily turn out perfectly well. It seems that guys like David DeJesus and Mike Aviles need to move from center and short, respectively. Their defense is a bit of a mess, there are questions over who plays where, and there's a mistake like the Jose Guillen contract to live down. On the plus side, Hillman seemed to get his bullpen sorted out well enough, Greinke's settling in, and Hochevar and Davies don't seem too far behind. They're still a few Gloads shy of having all the bricks to build a lasting foundation, but they're getting there. (Christina Kahrl)
