BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Neither New York team (I am not partial to one over the other) has a clear path to return to relevance. The Mets have superb young pitching, but lack any depth of hitting talent- after Duda and Murphy, what is there? As for the Yankees, I can't see them as anything other than Oakland-East, in the absence of any upcoming talent. Where is the Jeter in this system? What do you suggest?
(BeplerP from New York, NY)
I can't remember who said this, it may have been Ben Lindbergh, but the Yankees have a fairly simple path to returning to relevance: sign all of the good players. I think Hanley Ramirez is Bronx-bound this offseason, as is one of the better starting pitchers on the market. They'll need more from Brian McCann than they got this year, but a turnaround doesn't seem THAT unlikely. Provided Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda stay healthy in 2015, they'll contend.

As for the Mets, it all comes down to how much they want to spend on free agents. David Wright should bounce back, and I like Dilson Herrera a lot. If Matt Harvey comes back healthy, there's a lot to like here, too. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who are the three most important players (no need to rank them in order of importance) in the race for the second American League wild card spot?
(Matt Zemek from Seattle)
Hisashi Iwakuma needs to continue pitching like a No. 2; Brian McCann has to handle a hastily-thrown-together rotation and also clobber the ball some more; Billy Butler has to mash the baseball back in the air for doubles and dingers. If everyone is OK with it, I ranked them by body weight. (Matt Sussman)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does the pitch-framing prowess of a player like Brian McCann make it more likely his team will outperform PECOTA projections?
(Pedro from NY)
Yes, I suppose so. Hopefully that will change by the time we put out projections for 2015. (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Jorge Alfaro hit enough to reach his ceiling (or close to it)?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
If we knew if prospects would hit enough to reach their ceilings, none of this would be any fun. What we can say with some confidence, however, is that Alfaro has enough power potential to be an above-average bat behind the plate, regardless of whether he hits .230 or .280. The difference between those two is what will determine whether he becomes Jared Saltalamaccia or Brian McCann. (Jeff Moore)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Brian McCann in New York this season?
(Ned from Atlanta)
Ned, I like the pairing. The Yankees needed a catcher, and I believe McCann was the best available. He can obviously hit a lick, and his power should play well within that ballpark. He's been a consistent 20-homer guy, but I think he should see that number increase a few per-year in the short run. Maybe not all the way to 30, but he ought to set a new career-high (currently 24).

Defensively, McCann doesn't have a great arm but he's regarded as a solid defender, due in part to how he manages the staff.

For 2014, PECOTA says .255/.335/.448. I'd probably take the over, assuming he stays healthy. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Brian McCann has had 2 recent incidents that led to the benches clearing...vs mia and the jose fernandez hr and the now infamous goalie act at home plate. do you think that will affect the way teams view him as a free agent?
(hdub from the bleachers)
I don't expect that to impede him on the open market at all. He is an extremely talented player that will be in very high demand. The recent incidents won't hurt that at all, I don't think. (Mark Anderson)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Let's say Chicago or Detroit called saying they want my players and are willing to offer prospects. Who should I ask for? Both farm systems I think stink.
(Kevin from Houston )
Considering you can't yet ask for this year's draft picks, the pickings are going to be pretty slim. From Detroit, the obvious answer is Nick Castellanos, but you could also be intrigued by players like Endrys Briceno, Drew VerHagen, Brian McCann, and Steven Moya. From the White Sox you can look at Courtney Hawkins, despite what Mortimer says, and I still believe in Trayce Thompson a little bit. (Mark Anderson)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a dynasty league in which I'm competing, but I'm weak at SP, I can trade 2 prospect picks, Gerrit Cole, & Brian McCann for Chris Sale and Alex Cobb. I'm leaning no because I lurve me some Cole. Still, I have Carlos Santana, and with Josh Johnson, Halladay, & Haren all disappointing, I could use the help (Rest of staff is Medlen, Moore, Gallardo, Wainwright, and CC). Should I pull the trigger?
(Jim Clancy from Exhibition Stadium)
I love Cole, too, but if you're in contention to win this year, you do the deal. Prospect love kills folks in these leagues bc they get married to endless cycle of the future and then they want to compete now and have future assets. Just focus on now. I'd do the deal. (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)Until Brian McCann returns, should I stick with vanilla Ryan Doumit or take a chance on Buck, Gattis, Arencibia or Pierzynski? (non-keeper points league) Thanks.
(rjblakel from Australia)
If your add/drop rules are liberal, you can certainly ride John Buck's hot hand. But Ryan Doumit is fine, and A.J. Pierzynski really isn't much worse/is about the same. (Mike Gianella)
2013-04-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Buying or selling Atlanta's streak as being something bigger than just a nice early-season stretch?
(Dan Rozenson from Washington, DC)
Thanks for the question, Dan.

The Braves aren't going to play .850 ball all year, but there's no question in my mind that they're one of the best teams in baseball. As I wrote in the WYNTK a few days ago, their 12-2 start is even more impressive when you consider the players—Freddie Freeman, Brandon Beachy, Brian McCann, et al—who are on the shelf. There's a lot more where this is coming from. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-08-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brian McCann done? After injuring his oblique in the 19 inning affair w/Pittsburgh last year, McCann's numbers for the past calender year have been awful. No need to resign a player on the decline, especially when you already have an Uggla sized albatross weighing down the budget.
(dan11995 from ATL)
No, I don't think so. The only thing that's really out of line with what he's done in the past is his BABIP, which is easy enough to chalk up to bad luck. The power is still there, his plate discipline is still there, so I wouldn't be jumping ship on McCann yet. (Derek Carty)
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)
2012-07-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Going into the allstar break, which team do you see making a run to come from 2nd or worse in the division to make a run a the pennant
(Cano don't ya know from NY)
The Angels are probably the trendy pick for this question, but I'll go with the Braves. Judging by the last four days, Brian McCann is back to hitting like Brian McCann, and I think Frank Wren will make a deal for a starting pitcher to shore up the rotation.

One more Braves note: Craig Kimbrel has recorded 33 strikeouts since he last issued a walk. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-06-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Picture this: Dickey deserves to make (and possibly start) the ASG. However, none of the presumed NL all-star catchers have experience catching a knuckler. Dickey lobbies to have Josh Thole added to roster as his "personal catcher". Request is turned down because now ... "the game counts" and Thole is not worthy of a spot on the roster. Comments?
(dianagram from VORGville)
Personally, I want Zack Greinke to start the All-Star Game just because it's in Kansas City. Others, like Dickey, are more likely candidates though.

As for the scenario, it's interesting. I can see it being a possibility, complete with Thole not making it. And I wouldn't be too saddened by it. Catchers may not be used to catching the knuckler, but I bet they can if necessary (especially for 2 innings). the more important consideration, though, is what La Russa thinks about catchers catching the knuckler. I bet he'd be happy to give Yadier Molina that chance. If Brian McCann is the starter though, he might think differently... (Larry Granillo)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)In defense of Matt Wieters, what constitutes a "star," exactly? How many WARs is that? Because if Wieters plays this year just a tiny bit better than last year, that's another Brian McCann.
(Christopher from Tennessee)
Wieters has one good year as an above-average player under his belt; last year he was worth 3.4 WARP, via a .266 True Average and slightly above-average defense in his age 25 season. Brian McCann is 28 and has five seasons out of six of at least 3.5 WARP and a .266 TAv under his belt, with an average of 4.0 WARP. Year in and year out, he delivers that kind of value. THAT is a star. If Wieters can develop into a consistent 3-4 win player, we can call him that, too, but he's got to maintain that level. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)That's funny, I never even think of C as a position since I've never, ever had a good C before.
(kddean from loop)
That might be a mistake. Catcher is the most scarce and definitely needs to be paid attention to. Their stats count just as much as anyone else's. Would you rather have Brian McCann and Placido Polanco or Pablo Sandoval and George Kottaras? (Derek Carty)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Miguel Montero? He had a huge 2009 second half: 254 PA, .316/.366/.534 (on a .358 BABIP) and 11 Bombs. I thought he could be roughly equal to Brian McCann in 2010 but had the knee injury in the first week. What do you think happens to him in 2011?
(Tom from New York)
I like Montero, but not more than McCann or even as much. I think he'll be a pretty good pickup, but some people may overrate him, which makes him kind of dangerous to chase. (Marc Normandin)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)John What's your take on Brian McCann? He has been very inconsistent. Is he hurt? Thanks Patrick O'Connor
(thome679 from dubuque, iowa)
McCann puts a lot of pressure on himself and it's only gotten worse with Chipper and Prado out of the lineup. He has his ups and downs but there is little doubt he is one of the best offensive catchers in the game. He's also a super kid, to boot. (John Perrotto)
2010-09-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jason Heyward deserving of a spot somewhere on an NL MVP ballot?
(David from CT)
Certainly somewhere, though not anywhere near the point of actually contending for the award. Though I've thrown tantrums in the past when certain players don't show up second or third on an award ballot, with Heyward we are talking about maybe the seventh or eighth spot, over which I just cannot get worked up. I flip-flop between Heyward and Posey for Rookie of the Year everyday, but I don't think Heyward is a serious MVP candidate. Hitting .275/.405/.480 is phenomenal, especially for a rookie, but as I think of the candidates, my list goes: Votto, Pujols, CarGo, A-Gonz, Halladay, and then pick a name out of the hat for the rest, as they aren't potential winners. Add in that Martin Prado and Brian McCann have been incredibly valuable to the Braves and I have a hard time really suggesting that Heyward is the main reason the Braves are where they are right now. So, to sum this up, sure, he is probably deserving of a spot somewhere, but not deserving of serious consideration for the award. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)What's up Seidman - wondering what your take on Brian McCann is. I have a feeling what we see is what we get (which is a very good offensive catcher), but I keep waiting for that real "consolidation" year where he walks 60-70 times in addition to the 25 HR power and good contact skills he's displayed at times in the past. Think we get at least one big "HOLY CRAP!!" year out of McCann during his peak?
(Nico Toscani from Above the Law)
Absolutely. He's still so young, and he's already shown he can put up incredible numbers in the past. I would bet he has another .385/.530 season in him and then settles into several years in the .375/.485 range, which should be more than enough to keep him the second best catcher in baseball. (Eric Seidman)
2010-07-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Dare I say it? Carlos Santana is the 2nd best offensive catcher in baseball behind Mauer, RIGHT NOW.
(tommybones from brooklyn)
You know what? You could be right, although you might hurt Brian McCann's and Geovany Soto's feelings. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Russell Martin just done? Are speedy catchers just always prey to Sick Boy's theory of acting from Trainspotting?
(Cory from LA)
I'm reasonably optimistic, particularly given that he's back to playing ball and won't miss Opening Day due to the groin problem.

You know, for all of the flaws he showed last year, Martin was still the most valuable catcher in the NL this side of Brian McCann and Yadier Molina according to WARP.

All that said, I don't get Trainspotting reference. How does Sean Connery's career fit into all of this? (Jay Jaffe)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Posey a better version or equal version of Brian McCann? Peak years of 20-25 hrs, .290-.300 (or better) sound about right?
(Jacob348 from The Bay Area)
Brian McCann is already there. If Posey turns in McCann, Posey's upside will have been realized. McCann is really, really good. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-01-12 18:30:00 (link to chat)Is there any chance that Matt Wieters outproduces Brian McCann this season, or am I a few years away? And how good do you think Adam JOnes can be?
(John from NJ)
Per Lloyd Christmas's experiences with Mary Swanson, there's always a chance. But I would bet against that type of occurrence next season. Wieters should easily outplay his 2009 self next season but McCann is probably second to Chase Utley on the list of most underappreciatedly awesome players in the game. Adam Jones, jury is still out on him for me. Too small of a defensive sample to call him poor, but he could end up being offensively similar to Shane Victorino as easily as he could be a .365/.520 player. (Eric Seidman)
2009-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)When are you taking Weiters in a Keeper draft? Before any of McCann/Martin/Mauer/Soto?
(Matt A from Raleigh)
Lots of Wieter's questions today, so let me put out this fire early. I wouldn't draft him in a keeper league before those more established, young and incredibly productive players. Yes, he had a great year at Double-A, and yes, PECOTA is very much in love with Monsieur Wieters, but that Brian McCann guy is pretty awesome too, and you already know what he's capable of.

I'm not sure I agree with PECOTA on Wieter's flawless projection (from the 10th percentile to the 90th, there isn't a projection unworthy of drafting). He's also still not the starter in Baltimore, and even if you think it's inevitable, he's going to get fewer PA than catchers who are going to hit. I ranked him in the middle of my top 10 for a reason, and it's because I think his forecast is a bit aggressive. I would rather miss out on what little extra he could hypothetically provide over someone like McCann than be left looking silly when he doesn't immediately set the world on fire after his debut.

[Pours gasoline on fire] Hell, I even ranked Iannetta ahead of Wieters this year. (Marc Normandin)
2008-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)You are Theo Epstein: would you trade Jon Lester for Brian McCann?
(mattymatty from Philly)
Two separate people just suggested this.

Yes, I do. But I'm ridiculously high on McCann, and am notoriously wary of pitchers. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-15 14:30:00 (link to chat)What do you expect out of Brian McCann in 2008 in beyond? Will he ever return to being the masher he was in 2006, or is 2007 more in line with what we should expect from him?
(Marty from Charleston, SC)
2006 may be a stretch, but 2007 is the low-end projection out of me. He's still one of the best catchers in the league, and if Mauer's health troubles persist, there will be less competition for that spot soon enough. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)The other day,ESPN had a chat about who's the best young catcher in the game... the two guys discussed were Martin and Mauer. Are they the two best young catchers? Is anyone close? How good can Saltalamaccia and Weiters be? (I assume they are the two best not-established guys)
(Franklin Stubbs from Los Angeles)
Brian McCann still needs to be in that discussion, though he lost a lot of ground last year. (Nate Silver)
