BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steven, RE: The Mets signing Reyes In spite of the Wilpons' financial mess, couldn't these factors work in favor of Reyes staying with the Mets?: 1. new minority ownership/cash 2. the bloated contracts of Beltran/K-Rod/Castillo/Ollie coming off the books 3. ownership's understanding of the impact of star talent on their brand/business Would you say that Reyes is very likely to test the free agent market, regardless of whether or not he is traded?
(mattstupp from NYC)
It could, but it also depends on what Alderson thinks he can get. The problem from my point of view is that no matter what you get back, it's not going to be an above-average shortstop, which means that the Mets will go from Reyes to having an above-average chance of having to play some Ronny Cedeno type. For all his flaws, Reyes is young enough that he should be a safe sign on a long-term deal... barring some personality issues that I'm not aware of that makes the Mets believe that once given his cookie he'll go to sleep for the duration of the deal. (Steven Goldman)
2009-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Yuni going out for a month or so with a pulled hammy, should the M's go out and get a real SS (if so, who?), or punt with Josh Wilson and Ronny Cedeno? They are only 2 1/2 games behind some flawed teams.
(Buddy Biancalana from Tumwater)
There aren't any shortstops in the market. Tejada, I guess. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-01-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Seattle's off-season?
(R.J. from Beyond The Boxscore)
They turned a lot of nothing into even more somethings, which is the kind of thing Seattle needed to do. They aren't going to win in 2009, so loading up on inexpensive potential at a variety of positions was a good plan by their new G.M. I like him so far.

That last deal with Hendry...I don't know what Chicago was thinking. They essentially just dealt Felix Pie and Ronny Cedeno for a meh reliever that doesn't have the pitches to start, despise his constant need to do so. (Marc Normandin)
2008-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Cubs are rumored to be the front runners for Peavy. You mentioned it should take 3 top 100 prospects to get him, do the Cubs even have one outside of Vitters? I don't see how they take Felix Pie, Sean Marshall and Ronny Cedeno for Peavy, do you?
(Parker from Chicago)
No. The Cubs would have to include Vitters. Would Vitters, Pie and an arm do it? The Padres really need a center fielder. Would the Cubs even trade Vitters? (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Given that Theriot's performance has likely entrenched him in the starting lineup, and Ronny Cedeno's performance seemingly has him getting the lion-share of middle infield spot starts, what is Mike Fontenot's use now? Does he have any value in a trade? He seems like he could possibly bring the offensive value of Mark Derosa if he got the playing time. Also, what does Rich Hill have to do in order to return to the majors? Change teams?
(mlapointe from chicago)
Fontenot's getting starts at second with DeRosa moving out to left in the positional wheel that Piniella has been employing whenever his roster's Soriano-free, and it works pretty nicely. Add in that it means that he's got a bench player kept sharp with a goodly amount of playing time, and it makes for a better stabbity to go after the opposition with when he's back to pinch-hitting. And if Theriot or Cedeno or DeRosa goes down, it's a happier thing to be the team that still has Fontenot. He'd make for a mediocre regular, and while that might make him wealthy, I think it's more useful to keep him on this roster, especially as the lefty alternative to the righty-hitting Reed Johnson off of the bench.

Hill... it's a gut-wrenching thing to see a guy's control just go away like that. I'd trade for him, but I'm not sure the Cubs can afford to trust him until he gives Iowa a good month or so. It's interesting that Will brought up the Cubs in today's lead article about dealing for Sabathia--I would think that Hill would make a pretty important piece in such a swap, although it would be a bit risky to have both Cliff Lee and Hill in the same rotation. That would be sort of a southpaw roller-coaster ride that would require splatter shielding to protect bystanders. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ronny Cedeno and Eric Patterson--are they in the Cubs' plans for '08? Should they be? If I may indulge one more, what do you expect from Franklin Morales in '08 and down the road? Thanks!
(jromero from seattle)
At the moment it certainly doesn't seem like either is the Cub's first choice for a starting spot in the middle infield. Theriot would be pretty easy to displace at short, but Cedeno, as good as his minor-league numbers are, simply hasn't hit in his major-league opportunities.

As for Patterson, the Cubs are even deeper at 2B, with Mark De Rosa and Mike Fontenot, another Piniella favorite ahead of him. Patterson's got youth and more upside, but the other two were a pretty capable tandem last year, and PECOTA likes both of them - they're .360 OBPs and average-plus fielders, whereas Patterson's a .340 OBP type with below-average D.

Morales - as critical a part of the Rox run last year, I see him struggling a little bit. He's got to cut down the walks to succeed at Coors. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Orioles are starting to be slightly interesting again. What could be the realistic upside, prospect-wise, in trading Roberts to the Cubs?
(Tim from DC)
Given their shortage of shortstop prospects, they should definitely gun for getting Ronny Cedeno. Beyond that, I would expect pitching and more pitching, because everyone covets arms, and the Cubs have a pretty good track record for drafting and developing them. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you foresee any way the Cubs can upgrade at SS over Theriot. Other than Cedeno finally taking the next step?
(John from Cedar Falls)
I think that's it--it's up to Ronny Cedeno to just step in and win the job, because as fun a player as Theriot is, he's filler. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ronny Cedeno looks like he'll be moved today... looking forward, can he be an above-average shortstop ?
(Nate from Baltimore)
Yes. I know I'm the only guy on this bandwagon, and I'm on a lonsome desert highway, but I still think he can be a pretty good player. (Kevin Goldstein)
