DateQuestionAnswer
2016-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Better 2016 slash line at 500 PA: Coughlin or Soler?
(Dan from Boston)
Tom Coughlin is an old football coach. Chris Coghlan is an outfielder who I think has a higher floor than Jorge Soler this season, but who definitely has a much lower ceiling. (Matthew Trueblood)
2015-10-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)As the Mets end this series, because of their dominant starting pitching, can you please explain how starting pitching is still grossly overrated? Thanks for the chat! Enjoy reading your Twitter trolling.
(Jon from NYC)
Letís be clear: the Mets didnít win this series because of their dominant starting pitching. They won by playing a bit better than the Cubs were in all areas throughout the series. The Cubs failed to put together good at-bats at times, missed mistake pitches at others. The Metsí team defense provided excellent support to the Metsí pitchers, especially the starters.
More broadly, starting pitching is overrated basically because of what I outline above. Run prevention isnít all about the pitcher, and way too often, the game itself is looked at through the lens of starting pitching when there are two or three other (and often better) ways to explain the same action. It would be silly, for instance, to truly blame the Cubsí starters for the loss of this series. Yes, they made some critical mistakes, most notably the one Hammel made to Lucas Duda last night. The Mets hitters still had to make those mistakes hurt, though, and they couldnít have done much better a job. The pitch Murphy hit out for two runs off Arrieta: there was a ton of narrative around that, ďWhat happened to Arrieta? Is he gassed?Ē Well, yeah, probably, but thatís not why Daniel Murphy took that pitch out. Murphy did that because he just couldnít miss for a week. It wasnít even a bad pitch. Murphy beat Arrieta. Duda beat Hammel. Chris Coghlan also beat Noah Syndergaard in Game 2, only to have Granderson make that great catch. Pitchers arenít nearly the controllers of the action we make them out to be.
All that, plus, the more we learn about the game, the more it seems like starters should very often be gone by the sixth or seventh inning, so the role of the role in the modern game is ever-shrinking. (Matthew Trueblood)
2015-10-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Seriously though, what is the plan for Schwarber now?
(JD from North of Victory)
Schwarber is another interesting element of the Cubsí interesting winter ahead. Heís a better defensive left fielder than he appeared to be over the last week. He could stick just fine out there. Obviously, he has more defensive value at catcher, and that would help alleviate the jam the Cubs have out thereónot only Jorge Soler and Chris Coghlan, but Billy McKinney could be knocking on the door by midsummer, and depending how the infield shakes out, Kris Bryant might become an outfield refugee. On the other hand, I canít really see Schwarber being more than an average defensive catcher, especially with regard to framing. (He was exactly average in that regard this season.) The Cubs went out of their way to add Miguel Montero and David Ross last winter, in no small part because those guys are exceptional framers. Both guys are under contract for next season and using Schwarber as a catcher crowds that picture, too. They also have Willson Contreras, who broke out as a prospect in 2015, and might well think heís the catcher of the (long-term) future. I think Schwarber breaks camp as the starting left fielder, but thatís nowhere near certain yet. (Matthew Trueblood)
2014-11-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jacob deGrom the next Chris Coghlan? Meaning he wins the ROY, but then fades away? We have to remember that he didn't become a pitcher until later in his career and also had TJS.
(MetsFaithful5 from Syracuse)
Pitchers' growth curves aren't linear, so I'm much more likely to believe he took a real leap forward than I am with a hitter who simply happened to line his "rookie" year up with his physical peak years. (Sam Miller)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)10 tm NL only, Drop Coghlan for Belt? Is Ike Davis still rosterable in NL only? Thanks
(sdoron from Jerusalem, Israel)
Tough question, lots of complicating factors. Brandon Belt is better, but is still probably 3 weeks away from getting back to the bigs, and at that, the Giants weren't committing to him as an everyday player before the injury. Things are crazy in Florida right now, and a lot of Chris Coghlan's value is going to come down to McKeon's opinion of him. He's been bad so far, but he just announced that he was playing through injury, which might make them more willing to give him another chance. There's no right call here unless you can see into the minds of these managers, but I might go with Belt, if forced to pick.

Yes. Davis is absolutely still rosterable in NL-only. (Derek Carty)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where is Chris Coghlan going to play most of his games in the Majors? Think he moves to the infield when the Marlins inevitably fall out of the race and deal Dan Uggla?
(Trey from San Diego)
While an Uggla deal which restores him to second base is an intriguing and legitimate possibility, nobody loved Coghlan's D at the keystone before, and it's only going to get tougher for him to move back the more time passes. I suspect his long-term future is in the outfield, and hope for his sake he can maintain last year's breakout level. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Although not nearly the defeneder Emilio Bonifacio is at 2B, wouldn't the Marlins be best suited putting Chris Coghlan at 2B should they deal Dan Uggla based on the value of his bat in the infield?
(Goose from Chicago)
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Garrett Jones would easily have 30+ home runs if he had come up with McCutchen. Are either viable ROY candidates in the NL?
(WilliamWallace from Pittsburgh)
Jones leads NL rookies in VORP, curiously enough, with McCutchen right behind him. As good as Jones has been, I view him as a journeyman having an unsustainable season, and I wonder if the Writers will see it the same way. I think Chris Coghlan also has to be in the conversation, as well as J.A. Happ and Tommy Hanson. (Steven Goldman)
2009-08-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the sudden emergence of Chris Coghlan, do you think Dan Uggla's days in Miami are numbered?
(Gray from Chicago)
In that Uggla is older and more expensive than Coghlan, sure, thatís possible. But money aside, letís not let one smokiní hot month from Coghlan confuse which of them is the better player. (Ken Funck)
2009-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi John. Do you hear anything from scouts about Chris Coghlan? Is his future at 2nd base or in the outfield?
(jtrichey from Indianapolis)
He's certainly a better defensive second baseman than Dan Uggla, but, long-term, most scouts like him better in the outfield. (John Perrotto)
2008-09-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)If you were the Marlins, would you field offers for Dan Uggla this offseason and give the 2B job to Chris Coghlan?
(Tom from Miami)
I would do half of that. Uggla has peaked, and trading him now would be a good idea. That said, the Marlins are in position to trade offense for defense a bit, and maybe instead of Coghlan, they could look for someone with more glove than bat. (Joe Sheehan)
