BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Now that they didn't pick up a starter, who do you think steps up for the Cardinals down the stretch in the 4/5 slots between Jake Westbrook, Joe Kelly, Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez?
(Scott from LA)
Martinez is a nice sleeper; he's back in Triple-A and started for the first time since being demoted a few days ago. I assume he's going to get stretched out, and I wonder if they didn't use him in the pen to curb his innings workload a bit. I'm guessing Westbrook hangs around no matter what. After that I don't have a favorite, but obviously St. Louis can't go wrong any way they go. (R.J. Anderson Trade Deadline Wrap Chat)
2012-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ugh, are the Cardinals REALLY this good? It seems like every single break seems to go their way. Jake Westbrook and Kyle Lohse? ACES! Tyler Greene? SECOND COMING OF JEFF BAGWELL! So damn annoying.
(Reds Fan from Cincinnati)
According to our Adjusted Standings, not only have they actually been this good, they've actually been better. The Cardinals' third-order winning percentage is .733. That's the best in baseball, folks. Maybe Pujols was holding them back all that time! Scary for Reds fans, huh? (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-11-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)"I haven't been wild about any deal so far this winter." Not even Jake Westbrook re-upping with St. Louis for2/$16.5M? They had a need, and how could they have filled it for less?
(Bill from New Mexico)
It's not a horrible deal if you can guarantee he'll be healthy, and he's a good fit with Dave Duncan, but the guy's got one 30-start season out of the last four. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)Is Jocketty being complacent in not getteing some relief help at the deadline? We'd at least like to see some evidence that someone in the organization notices how risky CoCo Cordero's high wire act has become.
(Scartore from The Q.C.)
If the Cardinals made a mistake in overpaying for Jake Westbrook, I'd put the Reds' total inaction for picking up some relief depth just about right up there with it. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-06-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)It looks like the Reds are at least real enough to stay in the race with the Cards. Who should they target to bolster the roster for the 2nd half? Is Fausto Carmona enough? Lee/Haren too much? It seems the Reds have as much near-ready talent as anybody, if not uber-elite types.
(Rick from Chicago)
The Reds are actually my sleeper team to potentially nab Lee. I also wouldn't be surprised if they go after Jake Westbrook or someone like that to stabilize the rotation. Can't see them getting Haren, or thinking that Carmona would be enough. (Eric Seidman)
2010-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Will, last year you predicted a break-out year for Edwin Jackson and my fantasy team thanks you for that. Is there anyone you want to tell us about this year?
(Swingingbunts from NY)
I did? I rule. (Dumb luck.)

I like Daisuke Matsuzaka, but that won't surprise anyone. I like Jake Westbrook's chances. If I have to go total sleeper, I'll say Manny Parra. (Will Carroll)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Will, thanks for the chat. Do you have any updates on Jake Westbrook and Adam Miller? What does next year look like for each of them?
(jimbeau from Left Coast)
Westbrook will be ready for Spring Training. Nothing on Miller. (Will Carroll)
2009-08-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of UCLs, Jake Westbrook sounds like he's had enough of a setback to ruin his 2009: is there official worry that he'll lose some 2010 as well?
(buffum from Austin TX)
Official? No, but there's some worry when there's setbacks or cascades. I still like Westbrook a lot, but I didn't think he'd injure himself in the first place so take it fwiw.

Have to take a call -- be back asap. (Will Carroll)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have any insight on who the PTBNL in the DeRosa deal could be? Also, why did they use a PTBNL at all?
(jbuofm from Peoria)
I think I trust the rumors that it'll be either Jess Todd or Francisco Samuel (relievers both), as John Perrotto related today. However, the Indians are currently at 39 on the 40-man, and they'll be re-adding Jake Westbrook from the 60-day DL sometime in the near future, which means they don't really have space to add Todd (who's already rostered) without then also having to subsequently cut someone once Westbrook gets reactivated. The options as far as who the PTBNL might be might also change, depending on the outcome of the Cardinals' season. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jake Westbrook is close to returning - what can we expect from him in half a season?
(derek from ohio)
I always worry just a little more about control guys coming back from TJS than I do power guys. I still think he'll be good, not great ... so typical Westbrook. I'm still stunned he got hurt. (Will Carroll)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on the Braves kids in the rotation? (Jurrjens, Reyes, Morton)
(Jon from Macon)
I don't know that much about Morton, so I'll reserve judgment. Jurrjens is a midrotation guy, maybe slightly less. He reminds me of Jake Westbrook, with more upside than that. Reyes has improved a ton year-over-year, really tightening his mechanics and command, and now looks to me like an above-average starter in the majors. He was rushed last year, and I didn't take that into account enough when looking at him. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-17 15:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the Indians and Tigers playoff chances going forward? The Sox are anywhere from 55-70 percent favorites from the 3 BP odds reports. That sounds accurate to you?
(colintj from a2)
Given where those three teams are right now and the underlying causes for how they got there, I think that sounds about right. Cleveland has lost Jake Westbrook for the season, they've lost Victor Martinez for awhile, Travis Hafner has joined the ranks of the undead, and Rafael Betancourt is looking pretty clammy and monosyllabic as well. Detroit is out Bonderman already, the rest of their rotation is a mess, we don't know how well their bullpen can hold up, and they have to dig their way out of a sizeable hole. Meanwhile in Chicago we've seen guys like Carlos Quentin, Alexei Ramirez, Gavin Floyd, and John Danks start to deliver on their promise even as the offense in general has underachieved. The Sox lead isn't insurmountable but given the run differentials and the injury situations I'd place my nickel on them. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey KG, what particular stats do you focus on when considering a pitching prospect? Does some stat that takes into account ability to induce ground balls come into play? And, finally, what pitchers have a chance to develop into the next Derek Lowe / Jake Westbrook? Thanks.
(Mario66 from Toronto)
IP, H, K are the first three I like out, but everything is taken into account. Next Derek Lowe just might be Justin Masterson. (Kevin Goldstein)

2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableBuehrle's play was terrific, though I felt bad for Lou Marson, who not only got robbed on that play but was complicit in four Jake Westbrook wild pitches, all of which were balls Marson probably could have stopped. (Ken Funck)
2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableI'm switching to White Sox/Indians. Jake Westbrook as an opening day guy? That's Dodgers/Pirates territory. (Kevin Goldstein)
