BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the Rays acquisition of David DeJesus? Do you believe that they'll re-up on his 6.5 MIL club option when Luke Scott's 6ish MIL contract will be soon off the books?
(jlarsen from Chicago, IL)
I think they buy it out for 1.5 and he shows up in Chicago for 2.5-3.5 in 2014. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Any underrated guys you would target in an NL Only league?
(Mat from Fort Myers)
Will Venable is a guy I like. He only went for $9 in CBS but has the potential to earn $15-20 easily. David DeJesus seems like he had a down year last year but earned $14 in NL-only. Daniel Murphy is another guy who didn't do much in HR/SB but more than earned his keep. (Mike Gianella)
2011-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am pretty much the food equivalent of signing David DeJesus, right? I mean it fills a role, but doesn't really dazzle the palate.
(Vegetable Lasagna from Seinfeld)
DeJesus has averaged 2.6 WARP over the past four seasons, including +8 defense. At $5 million a year for two years, it's a useful, low-risk move - he's obviously done better in more hitter-friendly environments, and I expect his raw numbers will look a lot better in Chicago. Plus signing him removes an option for the Red Sox, which is a nice bit of schadenfreude for Theo. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Of Hideki Matsui, Josh Willingham, and David DeJesus, which of the A's new additions do you expect to adapt best to hitting in the Coliseum?
(Dave from Chicago)
The Coliseum isn't quite as unfriendly to lefties as it is to righties, so Matsui and DeJesus shouldn't see their value plummet. DeJesus should continue to be good for close to 10 triples.

I see that Larry Granillo already has two posts up, and R.J. Anderson has published three pieces--hasn't anyone told them that it's a marathon, not a sprint? Just kidding, guys. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)I like the line about Joba in K.C., but what's the series of events that you think lands him there? It's a little hard to imagine what K.C. has that Cashman would want/need. David DeJesus?
(Dan from Brooklyn)
Oh, I don't know. Maybe Cashman has a mancrush on Aaron Crow and is convinced that Mike Moustakas is the heir apparent to Derek Jeter after he tears up Double-A pitching this year while moving back to short. Plus he thinks that the George Brett statue would look great in his office. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is David Lough anything to get excited about it? Is David DeJesus the ceiling, or is he more like a future 4th outfielder at best?
(cjmulligan79 from cleveland)
He's something to be intrigued by, I'd fall a bit short of excited. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What interviews do yuo enjoy doing the most:players, scouts or managment?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
It really boils down to the personality of the individual, to be honest.

This is a good time to plug a few upcoming Prospectus Q&As. In the near future, you'll hear from John Russell, Lastings Milledge, and David DeJesus. There are also a few others in the works, and, as always, suggestions and requests are welcome. (David Laurila)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of DeJesus going to the Yankees? He's probably relatively cheap, they can play Nady in RF, Damon in LF, Matsui at DH, and let Austin Jackson spend more time in the minors. Seems like a great stopgap solution to me.
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
Just judging from the number of calls to draft/steal/acquire David DeJesus, there seems to be a lot of sentiment in favor of getting him in this chat room, but I guess like you I wonder if this doesn't just reproduce the problem with getting Damon in the first place--if the guy can't really help you as a center fielder, he's going to have to do some extraordinary hitting to help you otherwise. The talk of moving Damon to first is interesting, however... with DeJesus, sure, it would be a patch, but I think Jackson's the eventual answer, and if they stick with Melky and Brett Turner in the meantime, that beats doing something like repeating the exercise of giving Terrence Long a last stop. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is Ian Kennedy for David Dejesus a fair trade?
(Ken from Kansas City)
Not at all, and heaven help the Royals if they did anything of the sort. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Other than recalling Billy Butler, do the Royals have anything in the wind in terms of personnel moves? Wouldn't David DeJesus be a nice fit for the North Siders?
(BL from Bozeman, MT)
Butler would be the main move the Royals would make right now. I think DeJesus would indeed make a nice addition for the Cubs and the Royals should think about trading him if they can get a good return. How about that Mike Aviles, though? He can't sustain it but it's been a neat little run for the stocky shortstop. (John Perrotto)
2008-03-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)How about this KC-Detroit game? Tied up at 4 in the bottom of the 9th. This KC team is going to frustrate teams this year.
(Brian from Nashville)
I should have noted before now that the Royals had to take David DeJesus out in the second. As I've written a few places lately, it's really getting to be time that they flip him for a player or two. This wasn't the winter to do it with so many CFs on the market, but midseason will present some opportunities -- if he's healthy, of course.

I really don't know if this game is a case of KC being pesky more than it is the Tigers' bullpen being really bad... Or maybe it's just one of those things. Get back to me after a month. (Steven Goldman)
2008-02-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the stronger arm? Me or Juan Pierre? (Note: I "probably" lead my slow pitch softball league in outfield assists last year, although most of the base runners have had hip replacements recently.)
(Clay from St. Louis, MO)
Well, if your league is anything like the one I played in last year, getting an assist is actually an accomplishment since we're too old to try to stretch anything or for that matter want to even consider sliding. So I'd have to say yes, your arm is probably competitive.

For 2007 Pierre ranked dead last among centerfielders at -7.3 with a rate of -6.0. Grady Sizemore is second to last at -4.6 with David DeJesus (-4.5) not far behind. In 2006 Pierre was -1.8 and in 2005 -1.6. From 2005-2007 he finished second to last at -10.7 ahead of only Johnny Damon (-11.2). He wasn't nearly as bad as far as rate was concerned because of his greater playing time (-3.0 per 550 opportunities). From a rate perspective Brady Clark did the worst among centerfielders who received much playing time (256 adjusted games in those three years) at -5.3 runs per 550 opportunities.

Who was the worst in 2005-2007 you might ask (ok, you didn't but play along)? Shawn Green was -16.0 and Shannon Stewart was -11.8 before we get to Damon and Pierre. Jason Bay (-10.5) and Xavier Nady (-10.4) were no great shakes either. (Dan Fox)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener Roundtablekcboomer (kc): I want to hear some more about BP's projection for the Royals to win 72+ games. I just watched Bloomquist circle the wagons and drop a pop up to allow an unearned run and then in the bottom of the first the Royals sac bunt with one on and no outs. Needless to say that was the end of that "rally".

Sure, but maybe they're due for a karmic readjustment. David DeJesus broke out the ugliest slide this side of "Major League" stealing second, and got up laughing. For the old Royals, he would have injured his shoulder on that play and missed a month. (Ken Funck)
2008-09-29 10:30:00Tigers/White Sox Play-In GameGreg Pizzo (China, Maine) asks: "Does the terrific September by the Royals mean anything? Before the season started, we probably would have thought 75 wins was pretty good, but did they find out anything about their 2009 Royals using this September?"

I'm not so sure all that much progress was made. Guys like Billy Butler and Alex Gordon didn't take steps forward, they got a harsh reminder that Brian Bannister doesn't have a lot of upside, and even things that were good for them to have sorted out--like Tony Pena Jr. and Mark Teahen aren't regulars--didn't necessarily turn out perfectly well. It seems that guys like David DeJesus and Mike Aviles need to move from center and short, respectively. Their defense is a bit of a mess, there are questions over who plays where, and there's a mistake like the Jose Guillen contract to live down. On the plus side, Hillman seemed to get his bullpen sorted out well enough, Greinke's settling in, and Hochevar and Davies don't seem too far behind. They're still a few Gloads shy of having all the bricks to build a lasting foundation, but they're getting there. (Christina Kahrl)
