BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)just to put things into perspective, which recent all stars have a 7 hit tool? would you hang an 8 on Joe Mauer?
(Joe Random from San Jose)
Mauer did have an 8 but injuries and age took it all the way down to a 6 at worst. Gasp! Dude will find his swing and continue to mash

Current 7's- Altuve, Miggy, Cano, Trout and VMart... ok and Braun too. Tulo is a 7 this year. (Ryan Parker)
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which team makes the playoffs first, the Cubs, Twins or Astros?
(Sagar from chicago)
Of those? I kinda think Twins. Having a really, really good player like Joe Mauer helps. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Bret, besides Joe Mauer -- who is ending up on your team a lot this season? cheers, k
(Kurt from Tacoma)
Alex Gordon always winds up on a bunch of my teams. Same with Albert Pujols. Then in the later rounds, Martin Perez, Dustin Ackley and Derek Norris (where applicable). (Bret Sayre)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think having power at the corners is overrated? Can't a guy just play baseball without worrying about HR?
(Larry from LA)
Depends on roster construction and the player. I'm not complaining if it means getting Joe Mauer into my lineup a dozen or two more times as a first baseman. (Ronit Shah)
2014-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any lingering concerns over Joe Mauer's season-ending concussion? I have him in a keeper OBP league but I'm wondering if at his price (probably high 20s/low 30s depending who else I keep) it's better to cut bait than risk it.
(Matt from Springfield)
Somewhat, but at the high 20's I'm willing to gamble that he'll be ok. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who will have a better year in AL H-H league? Ervin Santana, Ubaldo Jimenez, or Chris Archer. (both FA would be eligible in our league even if they're in NL). Also, salaries are equal, who would you rather have Greinke or Joe Mauer?
(redsoxin2004 from Columbia, CT)
Archer, Greinke. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Salvador Perez finish in the Top 5 at C this season? His second half was strong. An uptick in power seems inevitable going forward.
(Tim Bennett from Dunn Field)
I don't think so. I'm not sure more power is guaranteed and Joe Mauer still rates as a catcher for this season. I have Perez behind Posey, Molina, Mauer, Santana and McCann at least. Possibly Lucroy and a couple others. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you see Kendrys Morales ending up?
(Frank from Seattle)
Given that the Mariners made a qualifying offer, the most likely destination for Kendry Morales is back to Seattle, since I can't see a team like the Pirates or the Rays surrendering a first round pick for a talent like Morales. The 10 teams that have protected picks either don't seem to need a first baseman or haven't expressed a lot of interest in Morales. I thought the Twins might have made sense before they announced they were moving Joe Mauer to first base. My guess is Seattle, although this could be one of those situations where the qualifying offer makes Morales' market tepid and he signs late with a team where an injury crops up and makes Morales a contingency plan. (Mike Gianella)
2013-11-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Mauer is a top 3 first basemen next year and hits 20 home runs in 155 games. Odds?
(Matt from Fargo)
Votto clearly no. 1, at least as long as Miguel Cabrera is playing 3B (which conceivably he might not be). I tend to think that Pujols is going to have a very strong recovery now that his foot is unhurt, but he'll either be much better than Mauer or much worse. Mauer or Goldschmidt next. He's John Olerud, right? Olerud was only very briefly a top-3 1B, but over the course of more than a decade he was a top-5. (Sam Miller)
2013-10-07 18:00:00 (link to chat)Any under the radar catchers going into next year? I'm stuck with Wellington in a 20 teamer
(Mitch from Iowa)
Hi Mitch

In a 20-team league, probably not. Yan Gomes would be more of a sleeper if everyone would stop talking about him, but still might be in your format. If the Twins consider moving Joe Mauer to another position, Josmil Pinto is instantly intriguing. (Mike Gianella)

(coach53 from CT)
Hey coach.

It's always difficult to answer a full blown roster question without having access to everyone else's roster and teams. Generally speaking, your offense looks strong, although in a shallow league under performing players like Weeks should probably be shown the door. On the pitching side, I think that Lincecum is a weak play for an eight-team mixed format. None of the free agents stand out, but Aoki could arguably be added to your squad. (Mike Gianella)
2013-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Mauer is a hall of fame player and will go down as one of the top five catchers of all time or Joe Mauer is an overhyped, overpaid, injury waiting to happen, no power bum. This is the two attitudes of Twins Fans. Why, Joe Mauer least of the problems of the team? Will we see a playoff caliver team in MN in the next 5-6 years.
(Joe Mauer's Uncle from Joemauerville, MN (St. Paul))
Everybody eventually hates everybody. Players should try to figure out a way to keep their salaries secret. We know these guys are all rich, and we don't begrudge them for it, but we don't *have* to know exactly to the run how many wins they should be producing to justify their contracts. (Sam Miller)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Writing this Monday afternoon, and as of now, The Mariners have played 33 games, a half-dozen have played 32, most have played 31 or 30, and then there are the White Sox (29), Mets (28), Indians (28), Royals (27) and Twins (27). How much do you value the extra games, the games not yet played, that guys on those last few teams still have in front of them? In other words, taking an otherwise neutral trade (i.e., Matt Wieters (32 games played for the Orioles so far) for Joe Mauer, or something), how much should those games matter?
(Matt Trueblood from Fridley, MN)
Not much at all. It's five games, probably 3-5% of a catcher's seasons and you have no idea how they'll fare (or if they'll even play those games). It'd have to be 10+ to start mattering. (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of career path do you envision for Matt Wieters from here on out?
(Stan from Milwaukee)
More of the same probably. Wieters isn't a switch-hitting Joe Mauer but he is a quality backstop. (R.J. Anderson)

Hey Coach

Without knowing what the rules are regarding how deep your reserve lists are and what your free agent pool looks like it's difficult to offer specific advice. Your roster looks strong, but 8-team mixed probably has a lot of rosters that look like this. Dan Haren and Tim Lincecum seem like players that you should be upgrading on. Feel free to drop Carlos Marmol, and as much as I love Kenley Jansen if there's a closer out there, get him; in an 8-team league you shouldn't be speculating on future saves but getting saves here and now. The free agents you list don't look particularly great which - again - makes me wonder how deep your reserve lists are. (Mike Gianella)

Wow, there is a ton of talent on the FA list. I would certainly target Lynn, Anderson, and Miller on the mound, especially since your pitching is hurting with Lincecum, Haren, and Halladay. That would be my #1 priority, no doubt.

Among the hitters, I like Freese, Crisp, and Aoki. But you are pretty solid in the OF and 3B already, so that would be a secondary concern. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)What High OBP guys are your favorite draft picks this year?
(PGT from Louisiana)
Joe Mauer is always a guy I like in AVG or OBP formats; he offers a lot of value through those categories at a tough position to fill. If he's healthy, Lance Berkman is a great OBP guy...and he's moving to a great park in a strong line-up. The health is a huge if, of course. (Mike Gianella)
2012-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am about to finish third in a league for the fourth year in a row, and my Achilles Heel has been catching. Can you give me some advice about the value of good catchers and any tips for 2013?
(Rick from Sarasota, FL)
Wow, consistent run. I don't think there is an ideal strategy for drafting catchers. I've read many pundits say avoid paying top dollar, but I've had success doing so. I've also had success investing avoiding the top dollar guys. I tend to like catchers that might see time at other positions, and thus, receive more plate appearances than others (think Ryan Doumit, Carlos Santana, Joe Mauer, etc). I also like younger catchers with some breakout potential. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-09-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should Joe Mauer get into the Hall?
(iorg34 from MN)
If he retired tomorrow,probably not. I think he certainly COULD do well enough in the rest of his career to justify inclusion, but that's not to say that he will. (Colin Wyers)
2012-08-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to choose between Buster Posey and Joe Mauer based on their careers to date plus their futures, who would you take?
(Klochner from MN)
Both are amazing players, but I'll take Posey. Mauer has had two seasons where he has slugged over .500 and he's 29 now. Posey has the same number and he's 25. 25! I'm not sure people talk enough about how amazing Buster Posey is.

Looking at where your question is from though I'm assuming that's not the answer you were hoping for. I think Mauer is bound for a 1B/C/DH kind of hybrid guy after Morneau's contract ends in 2013. You just don't see catchers as big as Mauer catch into their mid to late 30s and with Mauer's bat the Twins are going to want to keep him as healthy as they can. (Matthew Kory)
2012-07-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you rank the top 5 catchers for the rest of 2012 in an obp league?
(Jim from NY)
1- Buster Posey
2- Joe Mauer
3- Yadier Molina
4- Brian McCann
5- Mike Napoli

Miguel Montero and Matt Wieters could easily jump into the mix. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-06-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Joe Mauer will make the Hall?
(iorg34 from Uffda)
Much longer shot than I thought 2-3 years ago. He's not going to stick at catcher forever, and he can't deliver the kind of power that made his best seasons so special. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Starting Catcher A has a .907 OPS (playing in a pitcher's park), RF/9 and RF/G well above that of the league and has thrown out 40% of runners attempting to steal; thus, AJ Ellis is currently the best catcher in the NL, no? As an aside, there are currently SIX starting catchers with an OPS above .900 (and neither Joe Mauer nor Carlos Santana is one of them). What the heck is going on here?
(Silv from NY, NY)
He's having a good season, to be sure, and while I doubt that he'll keep up his current pace PECOTA likes him a fair amount as a hitter. In terms of his caught stealing rate - I'm uncomfortable attributing all of that to him. There are certainly pitchers who are better or worse at holding runners on to begin with, and I think one of the woefully unexamined areas of baseball study is trying to untangle that interaction, rather than attributing the whole of it to the catcher. (Colin Wyers)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which catcher would currently score a larger deal on an open market, Joe Mauer or Matt Wieters?
(Sam from Columbia, SC)
Tough question. Mauer is the better hitter even if he never approaches his 2009 level - he's got 43 points of career True Average on Wieters (.305 to .260), but he's also three years older and already starting to break down physically. Meanwhile, Wieters has developed into a solid player but hardly the star many (BP as well as prospect mavens elsewhere) predicted he would be. I don't think either would get a bank-breaking Yadier-esque deal if they were suddenly free agents. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rather have Geovany Soto at $3, and Cole Hamels at $23 or Joe Mauer at $22 and RA Dickey at $4. I'm thinking my Mauer fanboyness is overruling my good sense, Help?
(Paul from Minnesota)
Definitely Hamels/Soto. No question. I don't know how much of a bargain Hamels is at that price, but Mauer definitely isn't, and I don't think Dickey is either in a mixed league. (Derek Carty)
2011-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)That is a risky proposition but Iím thinking of acquiring Joe Mauer in my Scoresheet league.What are the chances he comes back to his usual level of playing and that he remains at catcher position ?
(Spirou from Montreal)
I'm not high on Mauer's long term future at catcher right now. If you assume his usual level is closer to 2007/2008/2010 than 2006/2009 and don't overpay, then maybe it works, but you have to seriously consider the risk factor that it doesn't. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Injuries are plaguing my team at the moment. - Joe Mauer - Pablo Sandoval - Andrew Bailey - And now Ike Davis Which first baseman do you think will have the most value in the short term? - Brett Wallace (who I picked up and can quickly drop) - Mitch Moreland - Eric Hosmer
(HonusCobb from Hopedale, IL)
I'll jump on the Eric Hosmer bandwagon here. He's made a pretty smooth transition to the major leagues and is also showing power. I like Wallace a lot, too, but he plays on a bad team, which cuts down on his RBI opportunities. (John Perrotto)
2010-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)No need to get down and dirty with JAWS, but how do you see Jorge Posada's Hall chances stacking up? I assume the bat would play, but once we deduct the necessary points for defense and historically bad baserunning, would there be enough left? How much weight have Hall voters historically assigned to the defensive component of catcher performance?
(Ben from NYC)
Covered Posada a few times, it's one that inevitably comes up; most recently I wrote about him in the context of Joe Mauer (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=10380). He's gotta keep hitting for a couple of years, still.

Interestingly enough, our defensive system showed him at +23 coming into the year, where the average Hall catcher is +69. The evidence suggests the voters do value defense when it comes to their Hall backstops; tack 100 FRAA onto Ted Simmons (who's at -24) and he's probably in. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm starting to get a little bit of a bust vibe from Matt Wieters. Do you still think he will become a franchise player ala close to Joe Mauer?
(Tooky from Golden State)
I think Daniel Gilbert might have tried to curse the Baltimore Ravens for skipping town, but instead his black magic missed and he hit the Orioles. I'm not touching that team until their horrific luck stops. (Marc Normandin)
2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)The reputation that permitted him to steal the 2006 MVP from the clearly correct choice, Joe Mauer?
(Minneapolitan from Nashville)
That's the one! I think he got tired of people saying Justin Smoak was the switch-hitting Justin Morneau, or that Joey Votto was the hitter people thought Justin Morneau was. He's taken it up a notch or six. (Marc Normandin)
2010-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given his athleticism, I always thought Joe Mauer would make a good 3B if the Twins ever moved him off catcher. Besides the change-of-position risk, how much additional risk would there be to have him play 3B most of the time and catch when Ramos (or whomever) needs a day off behind the plate?
(Patrick from MPLS)
It'd be a massive net reduction in risk beyond the short term. Catchers take such abuse back there. I've advocated this for a while and would do it gradually. (Will Carroll)
2010-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Love the expanded player comments...please keep them. My question has to do with the website. Last year, Joe Sheehan wrote an entire article about a single play Joe Mauer made in a game against the yankess. It was fantastic, the kind of informed sportswriting I can't find elsewhere. That's the kind of writing I miss the most and I'm waiting for one of the current bp authors to take over this role. Is anyone going to be doing this?
(tcayou from AZ)
The short answer is yes. We just need some games first! On a related note, did you see Jay Jaffe's bit on Pat Venditte yesterday? http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=10418. (Steven Goldman)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think teams will make more straight payout contracts like Joe Mauer's? i.e. fewer backloaded deals?
(LJ from Bridgewater, NJ)
Well, as I tried to show in today's piece on Mauer, it does make a certain sense to do exactly that, because the value of a win on the open market will reliably continue to rise, such that a player in the decline phase of his career will have to do less to justify his deal X years down the road than today.

That said, there are plenty of times where a backloaded deal makes sense. Teams don't sign players in a vacuum, and for budgetary reasons they need to stagger their big-dollar expenses. They may also be able to take advantage of the fact that they can fill needs from within down the road and jump out of the way of big balloon payments. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-03-15 16:00:00 (link to chat)What's with the Twins locking up pre-eligible players? The option years for both Blackburn and Span don't seem that favorable, and perhaps both players have already hit their ceilings...is this just a prelude to a Mauer signing and the Twins are just trying to get some cost certainty?
(Noah from Kalamazoo)
If Span has hit his ceiling, that's still a pretty good ceiling! I'm a fan of both players. Span gets on base and plays a decent outfield. Blackburn is allergic to walking batters. I'm guessing that a little bit of both ideas (Mauer and cost certainty) went into the mix. The Twins can protect themselves against both players winning huge arbitration numbers, and can in good accounting conscience begin offering Joe Mauer something approaching fair market value. (Russell A. Carleton)
2010-03-15 16:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Mauer, the odds of him signing the biggest contract of all times with the Yanks is ______?
(tommybones from brooklyn)
The depressing thing is that I'd put the odds around 25%. From a purely "I love this game" perspective, I like that Joe Mauer plays in Minnesota. And I want to believe that he really does want to stay in his home town and keep some brand loyalty to the Twins. But the Yankees will have an opening at catcher soon, Jesus Montero or no... and they will have gobs of cash because they are the Yankees... it sounds like a decent match. (Russell A. Carleton)
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know you're not privy to the negotiations, but how would you handicap the Joe Mauer derby? I'm a Red Sox fan who's hoping he stays put in Minnesota.
(mattymatty2000 from Philly)
There's a certain poetry to his being there, being a hometown guy and all, and as much as I'm sure every fan of every team would love to have this guy on their club, in some cases we experience a sense of loss when a player who is so integral to a team moves on. I've been asked about the Mauer negotiations in nearly every radio spot I've done the last couple of days, and the answer is, as you said, I don't have any special insight, but it really comes down to how Mauer values staying with the Twins vs. getting every dime he can possibly get. There's no wrong answer there. (Steven Goldman)
2010-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Lets say B Harper stays behind the plate... Is he a better prospect than Joe Mauer was?

If Jose Reyes doesn't return to form (a big if, in my opinion) than SS would probably have something to say about that discussion, but yes, I think Mauer/C is the largest gap as things stand. I'm not sure what that says about his draft position yet though, because I'm still trying to wrap my head around just what it is I expect from him in 2010. (Marc Normandin)

(brianpekrul from San Francisco)
That's not a bad upside comp, although it may be a little underselling just what Joe Mauer is, how far above Posey he is. If Posey isn't the Giants' catcher next year, starting 120 times, it's a pretty big mistake. Bring back Bengie Molina if you have to, but in Jose's role. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's wrong with Joe Mauer's narrative? Isn't he supposed to be the Derek Jeter of catchers or something?
(Christopher from Nashville)
There's nothing "wrong" with it - I'm just echoing the sentiment that the standards for the award tend to shift from year to year, with voters retrofitting their qualifications for winning to whichever player they feel has the best story line.

That said, catcher winning an unprecedented third batting title while keeping his team in contention (or better) into late September is a pretty good story line to have. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-14 16:30:00 (link to chat)Matt, your choices for the major awards in each league (MVP, CY, ROY, MOY). If you answer anyone other than Joe Mauer, I will cry.
(D. Delaney from Lehigh Valley)
Joe Mauer is an easy yes for AL MVP. NL MVP-- Pujols, AL Cy Young-- Greinke, NL Cy Young-- Lincecum. I mentioned earlier (probably after you submitted this question though) that the AL ROY was a toss up, but I'd probably go with Andrus or Niemann. The NL ROY should probably be Happ or Hanson. I think Hanson is clearly the better pitcher, but Happ's run prevention is probably a little better just on account of innings pitched. It's tough because the question is that if we know that Happ's peripherals indicate he's nowhere near as good as his ERA, does that mean we don't give him credit for it? I'd say no, because I don't think you take points off a hitter who is batting .350 on bloopers either. That said, I'd bet Hanson outperforms Happ enough in the next few weeks to make it moot. (Matt Swartz)
2009-08-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Care to weigh in on the Teixeira vs. Mauer debate that erupted over the weekend?
(PSIllini from Champaign, IL)
Which is your favorite way to measure this? Mauer is a catcher with a .355 EqA, a 66.4 VORP and a 7.5 WARP. Teixeira is a first baseman with a .311 EqA, a 35.3 VORP and a 5.4 WARP.

I think the world of Mark Teixeira Ė he was the first player I drafted in my current Strat league -- but the fact that thereís a debate about this just amazes me. Itís not Joe Mauerís fault that the Twins arenít able to leverage the most valuable commodity in the AL into a playoff berth. (Ken Funck)
2009-08-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think Joe Mauerīs future looks like? [Will he eventually/when will he] move off Catcher to another less demanding position (like, which one?). And maybe, most important, where does he play after his current contract expires? And when does he get proper recognition, i.e. MVP?
(Guillermo from Madrid, Spain)
I'm hoping this is the year he gets proper recognition, although it's not being discussed like the slam-dunk I would think it is. I'm probably very much in the minority on this, but I think he's going to stay behind the plate for a long, long time. Whatever deep-pocketed team signs him (the usual suspects are certainly going to apply) will be smart to DH him as needed, and when he retires we'll all feel privileged for getting to watch one of the best catchers of all time.

Unless he gets hurt -- the BP Annual's comparison of Mauer/Kendall through their age-25 season is pretty freaky. (Ken Funck)

2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)Joe Mauer hit 9HR in May and 6 in the month and a half since then. What's his real power level? What do you see from him the rest of the season? Do you think Weiters will be better?
(Aunt Jemima from Atlanta)
I feel like Mauer is going to be a 16-22 HR hitter with plenty of contact otherwise and patience to boot. A line of, say, .315/.410/.460 with 18 HR. Add in his reportedly stellar defense that spits in the face of Nichols Law, and that makes him the most underrated player in baseball, not this Matt Kemp character. Kemp is underrated in the sense that he is an all-star not known globally, etc. Mauer is underrated in the sense that he is one of the best players in baseball, period, and others might not think of him as anything more than a mere all star. (Eric Seidman)
2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)Who do you like better as the top player in the two Holliday deals, Brett Wallace or Carlos Gonzalez?
(acmcdowell from Athens, GA)
In his Single-A stint in 2008 and Double-A stint this year, Wallace has looked like Joe Mauer at the plate, which is certainly solid, but I've heard enough questions about his defense that he seems to be 1B-bound at the MLB level. On that note, if he can sustain patience and develop power, he could be a very productive MLB player. CarGo has been traded about 12 times already and has put up virtually identical OBP/SLG lines in both of his MLB stints so far. I'm always more inclined to take the CF over the 1B, but in this case I'll break from that mold and say Wallace. (Eric Seidman)

As with Contreras, we don't know. It's the opaqueness of baseball that makes us watchers sometimes seem like Kremlinologists, making educated guesses based on parade seats or in this case, an amazing month. Then again, it could be because I traded Mauer with Cliff Lee. (Will Carroll)

No, really it's just the normal small-sample variations you'll see in any two week period for almost any player.

Isn't Mauer healthy now?
(Wendy from Madrid)
Mauer's one of the best players in the game, so saying someone who hasn't played a game is that good or better? Well, everyone that's seen him play raves, so I have to believe he's got that upside. I worry about any catcher, especially Mauer with his leg problems, staying healthy when most of their value is in the bat. I think it will be a great debate to have in a couple years. (Will Carroll)

Kubel's not that guy. He's a good fourth banana on a team missing a third. Now, anyway...I suspect he has some late kick in him that gets him to a .300/.380/.520 peak for a couple of years. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)re: Corey Hart fan club name .... easy "Sunglasses in Right" As for Moving Pictures .... best RUSH album ever! Fantasy question: Is there any scenario in which Johan goes first in a mixed league, non-keeper snake draft?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Sunglasses in Right, eh? Any others folks? I'm counting on you here. If Johan goes first, it's your job to make that fantasy owner pay for it the rest of the draft. We had someone pick Joe Mauer third last year overall, and he hasn't lived it down yet. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nate, how likely do you think it is that Joe Mauer becomes more of a power hitter at some point? As a Twins fan, I hope for more than a souped up Jason Kendall career.
(collins from greenville nc)
PECOTA is no longer showing much potential for a power breakout for Mauer, and that definitely constitutes a downgrade of sorts from last year. But the Jason Kendall analogy is lowballing a bit. Think Wade Boggs as a catcher. Where's Margo Adams when you need her? (Nate Silver)

2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtableNick (Portland): If I am the Rays I would try to trade for Chris Ianetta the second the Rockies are eliminated.

If I'm Cashman, or Epstein, or ... well, just about every GM who doesn't have Joe Mauer on a roster, I'd be trying to pry Iannetta loose from the Rockies. Let them have their moment of clutch, I want a guy who can be a long-term solution at the position. (Jay "Chicken" Jaffe)
