BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any warning signs in the PITCHf/x data regarding Kerry Wood? I think many Cubs fans would be delighted to see him back for sentimental reasons, if not for performance and durability.
(Tevla1 from Baltimore, MD)
I haven't looked at him mechanically. The other indicator would be a velocity drop. I don't notice anything like that standing out in his PITCHf/x data. The guy to ask on all Cubs-related PITCHf/x matters is, of course, Harry Pavlidis, who is on Twitter @harrypav. (Mike Fast)
2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I crazy to think that the Twins can put together a darn good bullpen even with losing Crain, Guerrier, Rauch, and Fuentes (assuming they all leave)? I think it's very funny that Twins fans complain that Jose Mijares is inconsistent but also worry that Crain will leave; call for Anthony Slama and Rob Delaney for nearly two years, but now fear the bullpen will be awful when they might get a chance; and don't trust any low-cost options when a guy like Guerrier was originally claimed off waivers. If the Twins can sort through the many options, they could piece together a very effective group. That being said, any established relievers you would recommed for relatively cheap?
(russadams from St. Paul)
You're not crazy, and you can find the next Matt Guerrier. I think Grant Balfour's worth getting, and Arthur Rhodes and Chan Ho Park or even Kevin Gregg are names worth spending seven figures for. Kerry Wood, Dan Wheeler, an NRI for Justin Duchscherer... it's still a buyer's market as far as finding relief help, given the multiplicity of alternatives. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Giradi, Kerry Wood, Sergio Mitre. The yankees were doomed from the start. It takes more than 200 million to overcome the ex-cub factor!
(Mike Royko from Beyond)
Well, Kerry Wood has been excellent for the Yankees, but more seriously, I was confused at the start about putting both Mitre and Dustin Moseley on the roster. It's a bit like a military staff meeting before a big battle, and the chief of ordinance says, "Well, we've equipped everyone with guns, knives, hand grenades... We've got cannons, we've got shells..." and the general-in-chief says, "Be sure to pack the white flags." Why do you need two blow-out pitchers in a series in which you can never stop playing for a comeback. You can spare the staff in the regular season, but if you do it in the postseason, you're going to GO HOME. I just don't get it. I've been on about this at the Pinstriped Bible for three weeks now. (Steven Goldman)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much wood would Kerry Wood carry if Kerry Wood would carry wood?
(Dr. Scott from Chicago)
He'd just hurt himself trying, so it's best to leave the exercise theoretical. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Rangers exposed a lot of the Yankees' problems (shaky rotation, declining hitters showing their age)--with the sample size including their terrible September, how deep do you think the Yankees' problems are? What would you prioritize if you were Brian Cashman? Would love to hear your insights.
(Eli from Brooklyn)
Cliff Lee's the obvious good idea, and one that Cashman should go for, as well as retaining Kerry Wood. The Nick Johnson signing was a good idea gone wrong, so pursuing a top bat makes sense. The problem is sorting out what kind of bat, and here I think the Yankees could use that sort of hard-hit balls-in-play terror to provide a nice alternating note in a lineup that provides plenty of baserunners. So, not Adam Dunn, but maybe Jayson Werth, while rotating everyone through the DH slot--Swisher, Posada, Werth, Granderson, Gardner--instead of signing a DH-only type of guy. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-09-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given how dominant Albaladejo was in Triple A (yesterday notwithstanding), did the Yankees wait to call him up so long merely because of issues with number of options left, or was there something else?
(Ethan from New York, NY)
I'm not sure what to make of Albaladejo's limited usage at the big-league level thus far except to note that Kerry Wood's arrival and subsequent strong performance came right as it looked as though he might get his first real shot of the year. I still think he can help this bullpen more than, say, Chad Gaudin. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Chris Perez have the goods to be a solid Closer in the years (months) ahead for the Indians?
(Tony from Boston, MA)
I don't think he'll be as frustrating as Kerry Wood has been, but he's not an elite option for the position. He will however pick up saves, and if that's what you need, he should deliver. (Marc Normandin)
2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)It was surreal to watch Kerry Wood throw 95mph with a 88mph hard slider and a curveball with ridiculous movement the other week. If he gets command on his curveball, what's his peak value this year?
(Ethan from New York, NY)
I still don't trust him very much--I dropped him for Axford and his mustache (in a league where I could probably pick him back up if I needed to) but I can see him turning into what we thought he was at the start of the season, before the injuries and the horrid start. I just don't want it to happen while he's screwing up my stats. (Marc Normandin)
2010-04-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)When will the Rangers begin to admit their mistake and promote Derek Holland to replace Rich Harden in the rotation? Harden is a bullpen killer with his 4.1 inning outings.
(Kevin from Dallas)
Both Holland and Brandon McCarthy are carving up the PCL, giving Texas some options to change up the rotation. Harden (17 ip in 4 starts) and Feldman (7.50ish r/g) are the subpar candidates to date. Harden's history and stuff make him a strong candidate for the Kerry Wood treatment and a permanent shift to the bullpen. I doubt they would make such a move without a DL trip for Harden, , which would be the excuse for the transition. Shouldn't have to wait too long for that. (Clay Davenport)
2010-04-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the Cubs decision to move Zambrano to the pen? Does it have anything to do with his recent high pitch counts or their concerns over his long term health?
(cubfan131 from IA)
Zambrano was worked just as hard as Mark Prior and Kerry Wood at a young age. The smoking comparison works here - some people get cancer, some don't, and not all on the same timeline. I'm not sure if Zambrano's done, but right now, he's certainly paying a price. Some is simple aging - there's a lot of great pitchers who burned out quickly (Sandy Koufax, anyone?) and some is lack of adjustment. Someone on Twitter suggested using Zambrano in a Mike Marshall style role. I don't think the Cubs will even think of that, but maybe Chuck Wasserstrom will surprise us all. (Will Carroll)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is ANYONE going to give up much for Bell? It seems like most (ok, many) front offices are now smart enough to (a) not overvalue closers and (b) know they can often 'find' them in-house. Also (c), lots of people look good pitching in Petco.
(Mike W from Chicago)
i think right now the Pads are trying to take advantage of the fact that no other closers are on the market, so they feel like they can keep the price high. But yes, I do suspect that as with several other areas, the tide is turning and many teams realize they don't have to pay $8-10 million a year for a closer. They're made, not born.

You'd think the Indians would be one of those teams, but Kerry Wood and his bum wing say hi. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Andrew Cashner have the upside of Kerry Wood, either as a starter or a reliever?
(Dennis from LA)
Absolutely not. But that's not a knock on Cashner. I don't need more than two hands to count the numbers of pitcher since Wood who have equaled his upside. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)The first closer dealt this season will be?

Kerry Wood, but only after the Indians eat a big bite of his remaining salary. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-08-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)So will Dusty Baker be remembered more for his years in San Friancisco or ruining Kerry Wood, Mark Prior, Edinson Volquez, and Jonny Cueto?
(Joel from Chicago)
The latter, I think -- and personally, I'd say justifiably so. What happened to Prior and Woody (which hopefully won't be completely duplicated in Cinci) wasn't all Dusty's fault, so he shouldn't bear the entire responsibility. But at the same time his success in SF had a lot more to do with another controversial figure working in the Bay Area at the time than with Dusty himself. (Ken Funck)
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Regarding this Strausberg kid, we get it. He's the best ever. But when I think of highly touted pre-draft 'best ever pitchers', guys like Dwight Gooden, Mark Prior and Kerry Wood spring to mind more often then not (not to mention the Ben McDonalds of the world). Am I thinking too much glass-half-empty? Why is Strausberg going to be different?
(Kubali Khan from Mongolia)
Followup: the Big Papi question is just begging for a Goldman treatment.

He hasn't failed yet. I'm not the guy to argue with about this. As much as I think the draft is incredibly unfair to players, there are no guarantees, and we know that even the successes in the category of "college stud starter," like Jered Weaver, often are less than superstars. You can look just in very recent years and see a Prior and question the hype. It's a fair point. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-03-30 18:30:00 (link to chat)When your team looked into to signing a player like Kerry Wood, how do you figure his injury history into the mix? Secondly, if the cubs had offered him arbitration, is there any way the indians would have given up a pick for him?
(Mike from Chicago)
In general terms, you deal with problems with major uncertainties as systematically as possible. You try to assess the probabilities of each outcome, and what your downstream decisions would be if each kind of outcome occurs. You work out the values (costs, revenues, wins) associated with each alternative future and work your way backwards. Injuries, in this context, are just another uncertain event, albeit one that has a higher variance across the possible outcomes.

As for draft picks, I think you've seen a major change in how the market values draft picks, and what the impact has been on free agents. We knew pretty early in the process that Kerry wasn't going to be offered arbitration, so we didn't have to spend a lot of time evaluating that particular scenario. (Keith Woolner)
2009-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)would pedro be a high-risk, high-reward type signing or is he done?
(joe from hartford)
I'd take a chance on him at the right price, which I guess is like saying water is wet. I'm curious if he could relieve. I'm told he can't, but I was told the same thing for years about Kerry Wood so ... (Will Carroll)
2008-12-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think the market is for Ben Sheets? I'd love to see the Red Sox get him as I believe he's at least as good as Burnett and will cost have as much in years and dollars. Does 2/30 get it done for him?
(Joe from Tewksbury, MA)
Took the words right out of my mouth, Joe, that's about where I'd see his price tag making all sorts of sense to a contender. He's too much of a risk for that third year, but it might wind up being a situation where a vesting option with a reasonable target for vesting--akin to Kerry Wood's deal--gets it done. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-12-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)It looks like the Cubs have essentially traded Kerry Wood for Kevin Gregg in the bullpen. How worried should I be?
(Brian from Champaign, IL)
I'm one of the few who thinks that Gregg was doing just fine before he hurt his knee and went to pieces in August, and can do just fine closing or setting up Marmol. I would have rather they also signed Wood to give the team a solid trio, but it seems obvious that multi-year payroll management was a consideration. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chances Kerry Wood pitches 200 innings over the next 3 years in Cleveland?
(mwball75 from Ohio)
200? Umm, almost none. If they get three seasons, well, the first two went well and I think they'll define success in repeating the numbers he put up this year. I *love* the deal for both sides. They can quit worrying about the late innings, put the Rafaels in the key 7/8 situations, and Kerry gets the benefits of a great medical staff. (Will Carroll)
2008-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)A stupid question perhaps, but we're all Sabermetricians now, so might as well ask. To what extent is past health an indicator of future health? For instance, we all intuitively think that Burnett is still an injury risk, but do we statistically know that a guy in Burnett's situation will continue to have trouble logging innings? Is there a variation between pitchers and non-pitchers?
(tdees40 from Jersey)
We are? I'm not. I don't even pretend. I tried to coin a term years ago to differentiate myself from statheads by saying I'm a medhead. Didn't really stick, though I still like it.

To answer your question, it's very indicative, just on a biological level. Once you understand how the body heals, you understand there's always some tradeoff. Then on a baseball level, it's very hard to change - just look at Kerry Wood, who KNOWS he throws across his body, and could never convince himself to actually change. Pitching is harder on the body because it's so repetitive, amplifying the effects. (Will Carroll)
2008-12-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Indians option Joe Smith and put Eddie Moo on a six-week trial before cutting bait, or have we seen the Last of the Mujica?
(buffum from Austin TX)
I'd take Smith over Mujica any time. I think Smith, Jensen Lewis and Rafael Betancourt will set up Kerry Wood. (John Perrotto)
2008-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)The recent Ceda/Gregg trade reminds me of the first chapter of "Mind Game" where you discuss the Red Sox' failure by design. What possible plan do the Cubs have jumping ship on Ceda and getting into bed with Matt Mantei's ghost?
(nmhesketh from Cambridge)
I think they saw correctly that Kerry Wood was not so great as a closer that he was worth investing a lot of money in as a closer--WXRL for 2008: 2.23 (and what the heck is the Cubs' financial sitch these days with the economy dying as they try to sell?). They also had alternatives in Carlos Marmot, but that triggered an attack of nerves about the rest of the bullpen chain. I'm not saying it was a good move, but I can see the way it developed. Thanks for the shout-out for Mind Game, a book that still has currency. (Steven Goldman)
2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Let's talk about the Cubs... not books or these dead, old-time players.
(Quentin from Chicago)
Best team in baseball, I think, though I worry about Kerry Wood biting them in the butt in some tight postseason situation. I give a lot of credit to Lou Piniella for following through on his threat to deemphasize Fukudome a bit if he continued to struggle. Maybe I'm too used to years of Joe Torre's "It will all work out" approach to slumps, but I get impressed when a manager actually does something even vaguely assertive/proactive. (Steven Goldman)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Should we be worried about Kerry Wood?
(Jodie from Denver)
Blister. No, not worried. Those heal and if they need the help, Dr. Rany Jazayerli's in the suburbs and is at the ready. It gives him a bit of the rest. The workload to Wood, Marmol (especially), and Howry is more concerning to me than a blister. (Will Carroll)
2008-06-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a baseball fan, namely a Cubs one, which feeling is worse....Fonzie having a defensive lapse on a game-breaking play or Kerry Wood blowing a save?
(jlarsen from DRays Bay)
Losing is never fun, but I think when you lose a game in the final inning (or give up the tying run in the last AB), it can be deflating. But think about what happened after that game in Pittsburgh--the Cubs have won 8 straight since. So, you feel bad about it for maybe a few hours and then you think about tomorrow. That's the great thing about this game. (Len Kasper)
2008-05-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why isn't Carlos Marmol starting?
(Rob from Bloomington, IL)
Because I think this is one of those Jonathan Papelbon cases where a guy has so outperformed expectations in the bullpen that you don't tinker with that. I think I'd honestly rather try Kerry Wood in the rotation and make Marmol my closer. (Nate Silver)
2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Three questions: 1) For my Cubs lovin' wife, are the Northsiders for real? They've done well so far, but what are their big questions down the stretch? 2) Is there any light at the end of the Andruw Jones tunnel, or is that the sound of a diesel locomotive? 3) Joe Torre: great manager, or *greatest* manager? Seriously, look at Friday's Dodgers lineup: how could he expect to win?
(scareduck from Still closer to Angel Stadium than Chavez Ravine)
Cubs: for real. Their run differential is the best in all of baseball by a wide margin, and I don't see any of the other NL Central teams being able to hang with them. I think the big questions are whether Rich Hill rediscovers his control and returns to the rotation, and whether Kerry Wood can hold up as the team's closer. Barring injuries, I think they'll be OK, and even with those injuries, they have a bit of depth to either cover from within or make a trade to help themselves out.

Andruw: lots of questions about him today. The upside of his injury is that it may explain some of his struggles, it may force him to get back in shape as he rehabs, and it will give Dodger fans a bit of relief when it comes to the daily drama of the outfield lineup.

Torre: Furcal being hurt certainly takes a bite out of that lineup. But really, Torre's going to have to get over this Russell Martin-at-3B fetish, even though it's only been a total of 37 innings he's played there. It's fine to give him a breather now and then, but when you're stealing at-bats from DeWitt or LaRoche to give them to Gary Bennett, something is definitely wrong. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rumor coming out of the Cubs camp is that Kerry Wood is unavailable today due to his back. Cause for concern?
(Rob from Bloomington, IL)
That's true (spasms) and while I wouldn't be too concerned as long as they're transient, it does point to the biggest issue he has, the ability to come back on back to back days. I have no idea at all why everyone seems so locked in on having one closer for the Cubs rather than using their relievers in the best way possible. (Will Carroll)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you could go back in history and see one baseball game in person, which would it be?
(collins from greenville nc)
Part of the joy of going to a ballgame is that the outcome is in doubt, even in Marlins games. I think it would be fun to see Game Four of the 1929 World Series, because that was an amazing comeback win for the A's, but it wouldn't be quite so amazing knowing that it would happen.

In more pragmatic, realistic terms, I passed on a freebie the day Kerry Wood struck out 20. That's going to bug me to my dying day. (Christina Kahrl)
