BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hello, 12 team 5x5 keeper league. My pitching staff in "anchored" by Yordano, Cliff Lee, and Cashner.I also have Minor, Iwakuma and Eovaldi. My talented lineup has been underwhelming this year. Should I start selling off parts this year, or should i continue to compete, while starting Edwin Jackson and Ryan Vogelsong?
(CD, as it cetacean dissection from MD)
Oof, that's a tough break. I'd hang on for a little longer because your pitching studs could theoretically be back soon. But if they're still sitting on the DL in 3-4 weeks, you should sell, yeah. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wins, I know, but who gets more of them from this point until the end of time: CC Sabathia, Zack Wheeler, Archie Bradley, Ryan Vogelsong?
(Wandy from Wandyland)
Bradley, Wheeler, Sabathia, Vogelsong.

146, 139, 34, 19 (Zachary Levine)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you name a non-ace or two in the NL whom you expect to be better in the second half?
(Jason from Not leaving yet)
Better meaning they've pitched and failed. Lance Lynn, Jeff Samardzija, Homer Bailey, Edwin Jackson, Dillon Gee (already surging), Brandon McCarthy & Ryan Vogelsong when healthy, and keep an eye on Tom Koehler who is throwing tonight. (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Have you noticed anything mechanical that could be part of Ryan Vogelsong's struggles?
(Josh G from Stockton, CA)
His velocity is down a bit from 2011-12, crossing over the fat part of the bell curve and threatening the 90-mph barrier. He looks fine mechanically, though his timing is not as consistent as the past two seasons, and he will be more hittable so long as the combo of lesser command and shrunken velocity continues to allow batters to capitalize on his mistakes. I do think he's been a bit unlucky this season, as I have seen many plays where he gave up a hit despite hitting his target, only to watch a grounder find a hole in the infield.

On the jukebox: The Clash, "Four Horsemen" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-04-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who is more likely to turn it around in: Ryan Vogelsong or Jarrod Parker?
(Andy from Chicago)
I'm a big fan of Vogelsong. I haven't heard/seen any reason to think both can't turn it around. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Tommy Hanson rebounds to the pitcher he was a few years ago.
(Squidwai from San Francisco)
There's a chance in the same way that there's a chance that Scott Kazmir does and in the same way there was always a chance that Ryan Vogelsong would be an All-Star in his mid-30s, but I would imagine it would take a couple surgeries or an almost unimaginable shift in technique. (Sam Miller)
2012-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)What pitches did Ryan Vogelsong learn or improve upon during his 3 years in Japan that made him return to MLB as an above average starter?
(Paul from DC)
Vogey was hit hard in Japan, and I don't know that he made any specific adjustments on the other side of the Pacific that turned him into a sudden All Star. Dave Righetti played a big role in getting Vogelsong back on a big league mound, and his intriguing mix of pitches that run in the 89-91 mph range are key to his success by changing batter eye levels.

2011-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Ryan Vogelsong keep this up? He has to be better than Barry Zito, no?
(Rob from Alaska)
I guess I'm not on the Vogelsong bandwagon. I don't see anything is his repetoire that gets me excited. Zito's serviceable; I'd rather have him.

Vogelsong is getting swings and misses with his fastball. I don't see how that continues. It's not particularly fast, it doesn't have unusual movement, and he's not doing an exceptional job of spotting it to the corners like Mo Rivera. He's in a good ballpark, but other than that, nothing about Vogelsong screams "turnaround" to me. (Mike Fast)
