BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-10-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Do you know of any intriguing Asian players headed over next year? And how do you rank some of the Japaense pitchers who surprised this year, guys like Uehara and Iwakuma?
(japanaese ice from northern california)
Masahiro Tanaka is the guy everyone is talking about. The 24-year-old pitcher (he'll be 25 in 2014) throws mid 90s heat, has solid secondary offerings and has dominated in Japan. He's closer to Yu Darvish than Daisuke Matsuzaka, and could be a top pitcher next year.

Koji Uehara is one of the best closers in the game. His stuff is legit and he has always been hard to hit, even as a non-closer prior to 2013. Iwakuma is another pitcher who really shouldn't have been as much of a surprise as he was. Most of his struggles came in 2012 as a relief arm; he has dominated as a starter ever since 2012. Iwakuma should be a Top 25-30 pitcher even if he slips a little in 2014. He's really good, and his ability to pitch 200+ innings is the only thing I'm wondering about. (Mike Gianella)
2011-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everybody has been hearing all of this hype about Yu Darvish. Daisuke Matsuzaka got all this hype too, and look what happened to him. Do you think Yu will be the real deal?
(yankeesbg13 from Indianapolis)
I think Matsuzaka was the real deal as well. He just couldn't maintain it. I think people forget that he had a couple good seasons. Was he everything that was advertised? No. Will Darvish be the real deal? I think he has a more realistic chance of sustainable success. A see a very good #2 starter. (Jason Parks)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Daisuke Matsuzaka hasn't been an effective starter since 2008. Should the Red Sox cut bait?
(Jeff from Boston)
Saying he was effective even in 2008 is a stretch: he had the lowest BABIP of any starter with at least his innings pitched total, and his 4.35 SIERA looked a lot worse than his sub-3.00 ERA.

Marc Normandin wrote about Dice-K extensively today, so I'll refer you to his enlightened takes:
http://redsoxbeacon.com/2011/04/even-nibbling-beats-this/
http://redsoxbeacon.com/2011/04/can-boston-replace-dice-k-in-house/

You can probably tell what Marc's opinion is from that second URL. I don't disagree. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-02-16 16:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat, Russell. Who do you think will be the more effective pitcher over the next few years: Ben Sheets or Daisuke Matsuzaka?
(Dennis from LA)
You can never go wrong betting against the guy who had the big ouchie. This wouldn't be a question if Sheets hadn't been injured. (Study idea: what happens to pitchers after they miss a year?) But Sheets was really really good before the injury, and Dice-K was above average. I'm going to cross my fingers that Sheets comes back. (Russell A. Carleton)
2010-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat, Shawn. Do you play fantasy baseball? Who do you like better over the next few years: Ben Sheets or Daisuke Matsuzaka? Brandon Webb or Javier Vazquez?
(Dennis from LA)
Assuming all are healthy, Sheets and Webb, based purely on per-start quality. Especially with Vazquez moving into a stadium that really doesn't play into his strengths, and DiceK coming off an injury himself.

But the reality is that Sheets is never going to be healthy over a "next few years" type period, and I don't know if anybody has ever been healthier than Vazquez. If I'm betting on quantity, gotta take those two. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Buster Olney said that he thought that it was close, but that the Red Sox had the best 1-5 rotation on paper to start the year. Do you agree, or would you put another 5 ahead of them? What about top 3 in a playoff series, would you rather have Sabathia+Burnett+Vazquez/Pettitte, or Lester+Beckett+Lackey, or Hernandez+Lee+Bedard?
(mhnickerson from Cambridge, MA)
Well, Bedard's got to be healthy for the last to matter, and right now he isn't so, we can toss that one to the side.

Beyond that, the Yankees just won a World Championship with Sabathia-Burnett-Pettitte, and that counts for something. Add Vazquez and know that you've got both Hughes and Chamberlain as fifth options and it's a pretty impressive bunch. I'd probably go with that group, because I don't think much of Daisuke Matsuzaka anymore, and I'm starting to have my concerns about Beckett. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Will, last year you predicted a break-out year for Edwin Jackson and my fantasy team thanks you for that. Is there anyone you want to tell us about this year?
(Swingingbunts from NY)
I did? I rule. (Dumb luck.)

I like Daisuke Matsuzaka, but that won't surprise anyone. I like Jake Westbrook's chances. If I have to go total sleeper, I'll say Manny Parra. (Will Carroll)
2010-01-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)The 3 and a half hours was from the last time. Real question this time: Daisuke Matsuzaka, is 2010 going to be more 2007 or 2008? Please tell me it's not going to be another 2009.
(goldenyeti from SF CA)
The Red Sox are convinced he's healthy and the best shape since he came to the U.S. If that's the case then he's the 2007-08 version. (John Perrotto)
2008-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)what are the chances Norichika Aoki posts and plays for a mlb team next year?
(tycobb from ga)
This is more of a question for Mike Plugh, who does a great job with our Japanese League coverage. From what I understand, Aoki's like Yu Darvish, in the sense of being a top talent who's still a long way from free agency in Japan. Much like in majors, there's low incentive for a team to ship off a player in Japan when they still control his rights for a number of years. So the chances don't look good for the immediate future.

I'm fascinated by the posting system, however. It's reminiscent of the system before teams had farm systems, and prospects would be purchased by major league clubs from the minor league clubs that had them under contract; with a blind-bid aspect that makes things particularly dangerous. I'm not sure what lessons the MLB teams learned from the last round of posting, where the Rays stole Iwamura, the Yankees got rooked on Kei Igawa, and the Red Sox got exactly what they paid for in Daisuke Matsuzaka. (Derek Jacques)
2008-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Pagliarulo legitimately the authority on Japanese MLB prospects?
(Tony from Brooklyn, NY)
I'd suggest Mike Plugh or one of the scouts that MLB teams sends over. It was Craig Shipley, I believe, that did a lot of the work on Daisuke Matsuzaka and one of the Lee brothers who scouted Kosuke Fukudome. (Will Carroll)

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-10-10 13:30:00Friday LCSBy the way, just to get this out of the way and on the record, I'm conflicted as hell tonight. Daisuke Matsuzaka is a guy I've rooted for since well before most in Red Sox Nation had heard of him, but I'm also an unabashed fan of this Rays team.

I'm very interested in what the Trop is like. Anyone seen if MLB took the tarps off the upper sections? (Will Carroll)
