BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any NL-only 4th OF'ers or equivalent that you really like? I'm thinking of someone along the lines of Allen Craig a few yearsa ago that flashed some promise but was in line to back up at the start of the season.
(mj1453 from chicago)
I like Drew Stubbs for the Colorado factor and because Corey Dickerson is no sure thing, Jon Jay as a sneaky value proposition behind the oft-injured Peter Bourjos, and Nate McLouth as a sneaky source of speed even as a backup. (Mike Gianella)
2013-12-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any logic behind a Jon Jay for Daniel Murphy trade?
(izzy2112 from New York)
Not on St. Louis' part. They have Wong to slot in at second base. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could Taveras play CF defense at the level Jon Jay does? It seems that the popular opinion is that Jay doesn't have very good range. From a scouting perspective, is that true?
(jharrison3 from Illinois)
Taveras could be a 5 in CF. Nothing special. But the bat will crush. Jay is overrated defensively. He's not a THAT good out there. (Jason Parks)
2013-06-27 13:15:00 (link to chat)So the Cardinals have an awesome problem. What are they going to do in 2014 with Oscar Taveras, Kolten Wong, and Matt Adams when Jon Jay, Matt Carpenter, and Allen Craig already in their respective positions?
(Brady Childs from Boulder)
I wish we all had the Cardinals' problems. Carlos Beltran will be a free agent, and Craig can play a lot of positions, so finding time for Taveras, Adams, and Craig seems doable. Carpenter's emergence makes Wong a valuable trade chip. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-04-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Quickest route for me to get to the bigs this year?
(Oscar Taveras from STL)
I mean, a guy in the Cardinals outfield gets injured, right? The longest route is hoping Jon Jay sucks (which I don't think he does, but it's technically a possible route). The Just Playing Your Sweet Ass Off route is a non-starter. (Sam Miller)
2012-12-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)With Oscar Taveras raking in winter ball, do you see a way he can get a large amount of playing time with the Cardinals in 2013 without injury to the current roster? I can't believe they would bench Jay in center due to defense.
(rookie319s from Saint Louis)
Thanks for stopping by, rookie319s. I don't think the Cardinals will be in a huge rush to promote Taveras, given that their outfield is full, so he'll probably end up getting more upper-minors seasoning than he needs. For now, he is — as you said — outstanding injury insurance, and a clear heir to Beltran's spot in right field. WARP had Jon Jay as a 3.2-win producer last year, so I agree with your sentiment that he should not be benched. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-10-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does any team have more potential impact talent hitting the majors next year than the Cardinals—with OSCAR, Kolten Wong, and Shelby Miller?
(Billy from Ocean)
Nope, and I'm interested to see how the Cardinals work Taveras in next year -- if they do so at all. Jon Jay established himself this year and I wouldn't be surprised if the Cards let Taveras crush PCL pitching until an injury or September roster expansion opens up an opportunity for him in St. Louis. (Bradley Ankrom)
2012-07-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ive recently acquired joey votto in a ss league and been offered jj and zimmermann. what are your thoughts for jj in the second half.
(j from some yankee town)
Depends on who J.J. is. If it's Putz, I think he'll improve a little but not enough to be interesting. If it's Hardy, he also is capable of better things. If it's Josh Johnson, same thing, but with perpetual injury risk. Who else is there? J.J. Hoover. Jon Jay. Jair Jurrjens. John Jaso. Jim Johnson. I'm not getting warm and fuzzy about any of these guys. So I guess it doesn't depend on who J.J. is. Good chance of small improvement, but nothing exciting. I wouldn't trade Votto for Zimmermann and anyone with the initials J.J. (Geoff Young)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)So what are the odds that Allen Craig gets named to the All Star team (injured Votto) and benched by his own team (for Berkman) in the same week? Or can we hold out hope that Berkman becomes MLB's best pinch hitter?
(Hokieball from DC)
Haha, I don't think I'd hold my breath on that plan of action for Berkman. I'm sure they'll try to work Craig in at first and outfield whenever possible, but I'll be very interested to see if they try him at second. There was talk of it last year and it never really happened, but with the way he's hitting, I wouldn't be surprised if it gets some legs. The team could also bench Jon Jay more often, but since I own him pretty much everywhere, I'm not going to mention it... (Derek Carty)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your top undervalued targets for NL only leagues this year?
(Senior from Lost in my mind)
Just had LABR NL this weekend, so I've got a bunch. Not all went for as low as I wanted, but how about: Michael Cuddyer, Lucas Duda, Jon Jay, Marlon Byrd, John Mayberry, Jose Altuve, Ryan Ludwick, Tyler Greene. None are sure things, obviously, but that's the nature of undervalued targets. In general, I think these guys will come cheaper than I'd pay for them (although that wasn't the case for Cuddyer, Duda, Mayberry, Byrd, and Altuve this weekend in a tough LABR crowd). (Derek Carty)
2010-09-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Got a snap post-mortem on what went so wrong with St. Louis in the last month? I understand small sample size regression to the mean, but why so many regressions all at once, and why were none of them for the better?
(Bill from New Mexico)
They are a stars and scrubs roster, and when the stars struggle even a little bit, it is very tough to compete. Pitching Jeff Suppan more than zero times hurt, and not playing Rasmus everyday made little sense. I can't get on La Russa for all of this either, as his roster is complete with players like Brendan Ryan, Skip Schumaker, Jon Jay, Felipe Lopez, etc. The Cardinals, like the Mariners this year, needed to have a lot go right for them to have a great season; while everything went wrong with the Mariners, the Cards had some go right, enough to keep them in contention, but not enough to push them into the playoffs. (Eric Seidman)
2010-09-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Whither my Cardinals? While I'd like to see things turn around, they clearly gambled and lost this year in picking up some plug-ins (e.g. Pedro Feliz) hoping to catch lightning. So what should the offseason hold in store for them?
(biggreentevas from Oakland CA )
The Cardinals withered, and it all comes back to the offense's tumble once they essentially traded Ludwick for Westbrook and started playing a regressing Jon Jay over Colby Rasmus. As to their offseason, the first question is whether LaRussa is coming back, because the team should be built in consultation with whoever's managing. But I do think the team's got to do resolve the Rasmus issue one way or the other, and do something to stabilize the middle infield with players better than Skip Schumaker and Brendan Ryan. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Cardinals destined to always have streaky, left handed center fielders? Lankford, Edmonds, Rasmus -- all look amazing when they hit, awful when they don't...
(Andy from Chicago)
And Ankiel -- and then there's Jon Jay, who I actually watched for the first time last night as he crushed shot after shot to the right-center gap. Consider the alternative -- if they look amazing when they hit, that means you have a CF who CAN hit, at least occasionally. Lots of teams would take that. (Ken Funck)
