BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will the Pirates go after a Lance Bergman or Jorge Cantu type at 1B, hoping for a rebound season? And same for SP's (say maybe a Javy Vasquez, Millwood , Chris Young, etc)?
(sweet lou from Pitt)
Their priority is starting pitching and I can see them going after a couple of free agents who are coming off tough or injury-plauged seasons who would be looking more for a chance to pitch every five days than being on a contender. The three you mention fit that description and I wouldn't discount someone like Brad Penny or Erik Bedard, too. (John Perrotto)
2008-11-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Wes Hodges' defense as bad as it looks to Joe Sheehan: i.e., Corey Smiff level frying pan? Worse than Jorge Cantu or Garrett Atkins? Of the Marginal Lefty Brigade (Sowers, Laffey, Jackson, S. Lewis, Huff), which would be league-average starters in 2009?
(buffum from Austin TX)
No, it's not. I think I'd bet on Huff from that group. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat) Who do you see playing first for the Marlins now?
(tcogle from las Vegas)
I sort of ran through this yesterday, but in short, the Fish have a multiplicity of options because they have prospects who can hit a little in Logan Morrison and Gaby Sanchez, defensively-challenged young veterans like Josh Willingham and Jorge Cantu, and a one-for-one replacement for Jacobs in Dallas McPherson, at least in terms of skill sets. It's a choice the Marlins only have to make now if they decide to add a hitter in the outfield or a third baseman who can pick it; otherwise, they really can go into spring training and have some fun sorting it out. I'd probably do the pitching staff the favor of trying Cantu, and mix in some McPherson. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)What does my future look like?
(Dallas McPherson from NM)
There's a fortune to be made in the land of the rising sun, and having settled on Jorge Cantu, I think the Marlins would take the yen and run if they get a good-sized offer to make you a gaijin. (Christina Kahrl)
