DateQuestionAnswer
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)George, Thanks for the chat!! What's the story with Carson Smith?? Does he have the stuff to be our closer??
(Sam from Seattle)
Why did you trade Carter Capps? Seriously, I love that guy. I was at Fenway when he came into the game for the Marlins to face Xander with the bases loaded a few weeks back and I lost it. People around me were looking at me funny wondering why I was so excited until they saw him pitch. So...Carson Smith...Yes he can close it's that simple. Rodney is done no matter what you have to figure at the end of the year so long-term, he's the guy. I liked Dominic Leone last year, but he just completely lost it. (George Bissell)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Name a handful of under the radar potential save stealers for 2014?
(Sam from NY)
Cody Allen, Carter Capps, Edward Mujica, Tyler Clippard, Joe Smith (Ben Carsley)
2013-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking for saves in 2014, how many of these guys are capable/likely to grab 20+ saves next season: Trevor Rosenthal, David Robertson, Cody Allen, Jake McGee, Brian Wilson, Luke Gregerson, Pedro Strop, Drew Storen, Ryan Cook, Carlos Martinez, Vic Black, Joakim Soria, Neftali Feliz, Steve Delebar, Kelvin Herrera, Carter Capps, and/or AJ Ramos?
(J-Qwellin from Deplorable Future Leaders of America Club)
J-QWELLIN!!!! Interestingly enough, I'm working on such a piece re: 2014 closers. From your group, I'd go Rosy & D-Rob, but honestly any of them have the capability. I know that's a little copout-y, but that's the nature of the beast with relievers. (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Burch Smith... reliever or starter?
(Stephen from NY)
If I were a betting man, I'd say reliever, but I also wouldn't rule out starting just yet. He lacks a plus secondary pitch, and the breaking ball is just fringy (at least it was when I saw it last week. I'll see him again tomorrow). But he's got a good body, he commands his fastball extremely well between 92-98 (he even hit 100 over the weekend), and he's got deception with a good delivery. It looks a little like a better version of Carter Capps in the late innings to me, but I could see a starter. (Jason Cole)
2013-04-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your answer of Carter Capps as the best combination of velocity and movement is very interesting. Do you see him taking over as closer in Seattle sometime soon?
(Jim from Seattle)
soon? No, they've got a nasty closer already. Capps has the potential but is funky delivery may make it hard to trust his control day in and day out in high leverage situations. But, wow, his fastball is wicked. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-04-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Follow-up on Capps. Who do you see closing in Seattle if Wilhelmsen fails/get injured, Carter Capps or Stephen Pryor?
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
I'd guess Capps. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)Are the chances good that Carter Capps and Kelvin Herrera can unseat Tom Wilhemsen and Greg Holland is the (primary) 9th inning option?
(Mateo from Reno)
I'd say more for injury than skills as I like both of those incumbents. (Jason Collette)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Seattle and KC don't have a closer who has his gig locked down. I'm betting on Carter Capps in Seattle and Kelvin Herrera in Kansas City (unless Ventura is moved to the bullpen down the road). Smart money, or should I invest in someone else?
(Jonah from Brooklyn)
What's wrong with incumbents Wilhelmsen and Holland? You can speculate on those others on the cheap, but I'd still bet on the 2012 guys. (Paul Sporer)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kelvin Herrera in KC, Arodys Vizcaino in North Chicago, and Carter Capps in Seattle. Who has the best chance to lead their team in saves in 2013?* In 2014? (*I know Vizcaino is coming back from TJS).
(Kevin from Des Moines)
Thanks for the question, Kevin. Trying to guess save opportunities is a fool's errand, but I'll go with Herrera on the basis that he has the most big-league experience. (Geoff Young)
