BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given the relative success of the Yankees, do you consider Brian Cashman a genius for signing Lyle Overbay, Travis Hafner, and trading for Vernon Wells? I think the consensus was going into the season is that they were not going to contribute at this level.
(Joe from Amsterdam)
No, I reserve "genius" for the guy who invented that cranked onion dispenser at the ballpark.

But I loved the Hafner move. If you're going to call Cashman a genius, it's for signing any lefthanded hitter who is undervalued in other ballparks because power is his only tool. That can play really well on the Yankees, especially at DH, it goes without saying.

As for Wells, I'm still having a hard time with it. If he saw something in spring that didn't show up in games, I'm more inclined to wonder what the hell Wells was doing in games.

Rather indifferent on the Overbay move. (Zachary Levine)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the SmoakMonster?
(Titus Welliver from The Island)
I keep going back to standards for first base when it comes to hitting, especially since expectations for Smoak were so high. If he winds up being somewhere between John Olerud and Lyle Overbay in the big picture, that isn't a bad regular, but it'll nevertheless disappoint some folks. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-12 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is Lance Berkman done as a useful, everyday 1b? I think he might make a cheap option for teams in need of a 1b, provided he is reasonably healthy.
(Matt from Chicago)
Let's project a slight improvement on his overall season line for next year. Call it .260/.370/.425. That's kind of a Lyle Overbay type thing, and it seemed to work on second division teams okay. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Fascinating piece by Seidman today. How do you think the Big Puma would look at Wrigley next year? I don't think they'll shell out the money for Dunn.
(Matt from Chicago)
Aye, it was indeed. I'd certainly rather see the Cubs potentially buy low on Berkman (or Carlos Pena) than chase Aubrey Huff or Adam LaRoche, or settle for the likes of Lyle Overbay. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Any opinions on what the Braves timetable should be for Freddie Freeman?
(goiter6 from MN)
Next year. They aren't going to mess with anything right now, not even for a September callup, and I'd bet if something happens to Glaus they would scour the waiver wire for a Lyle Overbay or Adam LaRoche-type solution as opposed to bringing him up. Next year, however, I doubt Glaus will return and the team will probably look a bit different. The issue is that first base prospects can't merely be good. Seeing a .311/.371/.528 line for a minor league first base prospect isn't really too fantastic because the replacement level is so high for the position. But he is the best they have for the spot in the system and I would be surprised if he wasn't up by June 2011, if not earlier. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)What should the order of the BlueJays rotation be for 2011 - Marcum, Romero, Morrow, Cecil, Drabek? Do any of them have true stud potential.
(garethbluejays2 from Newcastle, UK)
Well, I think Romero already is a stud. Drabek definitely has stud potential. Marcum is very, very good. And Morrow wasn't touted so highly for nothing. The order of those five pitchers doesn't matter. No matter how you align them that is a very formidable rotation that no team will want to face. But unless they provide actual offensive players in place of Edwin Encarnacion and Lyle Overbay, we're looking at another 4th place finish. I really like what Alex Anthopolous is doing, but the Blue Jays have ALWAYS had strong pitching. This is nothing new. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)If it was up to you, what would you do about the competitive balance problem in the AL East? I mean even if everything breaks right for the Jays and/or Orioles, the odds are still overwhelmingly against them making the playoffs anytime in the next 3-5 years with what NY/BOS/TB have in place. Speaking as a fan of none of those teams, it doesn't seem really fair but I don't know how you address it either.
(losermix from New York)
Honestly, the fact that you are including TB with NY and BOS sort of answers the question. Yes, the Yankees and Red Sox have competitive advantages, but the Rays were in a worse spot and look where they are now. I don't know how to completely fix it other than some sort of revolving door of divisions that change every couple of years, which just isn't realistic. But I also know that the Orioles and Jays could do much better at developing their teams. When you're relying on Brian Roberts as the top offensive force, that's a big problem. When Lyle Overbay is your starting 1B, that's a big problem. These teams are at a disadvantage but they also are yet to really make good on their own part of it. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)The White Sox didn't get Adam Dunn, and I must admit that I'm a little verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic: The Disastros seemed to have actually helped themselves at this year's trade deadline. Discuss.
(Linda Richman from Coffee Talk)
I'm not buying it. At least they might have been able to sell a few tickets 2011 with the last big bits left from their mid-Aughties contenders. They're mid-pack at ~25,000 now, but who's going to buy a season ticket package to see a bad team whose highlights include hoping Brett Wallace can be the new Lyle Overbay? Their record might not be that much worse next year over this, but the deals didn't save Drayton McLane all that much money, the talent received isn't going to help them win, and the product went from bad and ex-famous to bad and boring. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why do people like me so much? I'm nothing more than a switch hitting Lyle Overbay.
(Justin Smoak from On A Airplane)
I would like to hear your side of the story on that one. (Marc Normandin)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Take a look at my minor and MLB resume. I've never been able to hit HR's. I'm a plus defender who works the count and draws a lot of walks.
(Justin Smoak from On A Airplane)
Doesn't mean the power won't come. Can we at least upgrade Lyle Overbay to John Olerud? (Marc Normandin)
2010-03-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Brett Wallace: Offensive dynamo or younger, cheaper Lyle Overbay?
(Aaron from YYZ)
You stole my Brett Wallace comp! (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Brett Wallace is the next...?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
Better than Lyle Overbay, but not quite John Olerud. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of the middle of the Jays lineup with the addition of Brett Wallace? Lind/Snider/Wallace (in some order) Do you see as many RBIs as I anticipate?
(Stevealicious from Planet Lovetron)
RBI? Is this Omar Minaya asking me advice about his fantasy team?

Between the current presence of Lyle Overbay and the fact that Wallace could still use a bit of minor league seasoning, I'm skeptical that they'll start the year with such a lineup. I also think that if they put those three in a row, the number of GIDP will add up. We are talking about a guy whose nickname is the Walrus, after all.

OK, lightning round... (Jay Jaffe)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)One subject that nearly everone has been silent about, sort of like the unspoken rule about not mentioning a no-hitter in progress, is AARON HILL. And yes the capitals are warranted by now no?
(WilliamWilde from Boston, MA)
Hill's the guy off to a hot start in the Jays' lineup worth getting excited about, not simply because of the back story of coming back from his concussion, but because he looked good before the injury, and we can get excited about what he might grow up to be. (Insert standard observations that Lyle Overbay and Marco Scutaro will go back to being Lyle Overbay and Marco Scutaro here.) (Christina Kahrl)
2009-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I keep hearing Lyle Overbay comps regarding Logan Morrison. Please tell me he'll hit with more power.
(Josh Conklin from NH)
His top PECOTA comps include Kent Hrbek, Greg Walker, and Justin Morneau, none bearing the least resemblance to Overbay. (Steven Goldman)
2008-11-24 15:00:00 (link to chat)So if Bradley ends up in Toronto, who gets buried: Lind or Snider? Or do they wait for a Milton injury? or mercifully end the Lyle Overbay era at to install one of the bad defensive LF at 1B?
(Aaron from YYZ)
I would think that Snider would go back to the minors to start the year, which probably wouldn't be a tragedy given that he's going to be 21 and started last year at High-A. With Bradley's injury history and the age on Toronto's offense, there will likely be plenty of opportunities for at-bats later in the season, as well. (Caleb Peiffer)
2008-12-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for chatting Jay - two part question. 1) Would the following be an equitable trade - Jays send Lyle Overbay and Russ Adams to the Mariners for Jarrod Washburn and some cash? 2) What possible excuse could JP Ricciardi put forth this year for not having Travis Snider in the opening day lineup?
(rawagman from Toronto)
No, it's not enough going to the Mariners, as Adams is without value given his shortcomings on both sides of the ball.

As for Snider, he had a very nice cup of coffee last year and he's not far off, but he's got less than 150 AB above Double-A, and just 500 above A-ball, so I don't think there's harm in some seasoning at Triple-A. But I look forward to an obfuscation from J.P. nonetheless, as those are worth the price of admission. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the Jays on the noggin, who's going to be the first player into the HoF with a Blue Jays cap?
(Aaron from YYZ)
Rickey Henderson? Fred McGriff? Lyle Overbay? Maybe a successful VC campaign for Dave Stieb?

That's a stumper. I honestly don't know the answer. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nick Johnson to Toronto? I think he'd benefit from DH'ing and lord knows, Toronto could use a bat.
(Chadale from Toronto)
It makes sense in terms of Nick Johnson, but not so much for the Jays, because they've already got a somewhat crowded collection of options at the slugging slots of the outfield corners, first base, and DH. They've got Wells, Rios, and Lind in the outfield, Snider close to ready, and two more years to Lyle Overbay to live down. If they could get Johnson an make Overbay a Yankee or something, it would be great to take their chances on a (fragile) upgrade at first base, but that would make for the difficult dance of trying to get somebody to eat some of Overbay's contract (fools they), and then perhaps trying to get the Nats to absorb some of Johnson's. Basically, it isn't impossible, just difficult, and it would probably be best served by first finding a way to make Lyle Overbay somebody else's problem. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, You've written about David Cooper in your Future Shock column, do you think he's a guy who will hit 30+hrs and hit .290+, or is he going to be more of a Lyle Overbay gap power type? Is his future at 1b, or could he stick in LF? Thanks!
(Kevin from Toronto)
First off, he's a first baseman only. He's not especially good there even, but I just can't see him playing anywhere else. I'm not sure he's a 30+ guy consistently, but he's an on-base machine with certainly more power than Overbay. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bounce back year for Lyle Overbay or do you buy into PECOTA's depressing outlook for him?
(theguag from Louisville)
I'm not sure if he'll be that awful at home, but the shine has come off for sure. (Marc Normandin)
2008-02-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)If Toronto got Bonds would there be a trade market for Reed Johnson or Lyle Overbay, and can Bonds play first?
(dogtothedog from Toronto)
He's never, not once, played first base, and didn't like the idea of learning while in SF.

I can't emphasize this enough: Bonds can play left field. He's below-average out there with a bad arm, but far from the worst in baseball. He also played 120 games a year out there for the Giants. He doesn't have to DH full time; he can play left 60-70 times and DH the rest. (Joe Sheehan)
