BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)When the Mets finally decide to sell off some of their big league arms who do you think will go and what could be the possible return for a Dillon Gee or Jon Niese?
(avery from bronx)
I think Niese brings more back for whatever reason. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)I've got Halladay and CJ Wilson as my #3 and #5 starter in a points league. Trying to flip them based on Halladay's health and Wilson's walking ways (possible 2011 was outlier??). Anyone you like I should target in a vacuum? I've got Wainwright, Darvish, Peavy, D.Holland, Pettitte and Porcello as the rest of my staff (league really likes [read: reaches] SPs)
(James from NYC)
Sure, I can name dozens of starters I like better than those two, but it depends on the market. Jon Niese and Doug Fister are two off the top of my head, but I have no idea how their current owner(s) value them. (Cory Schwartz)
2013-03-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 5X5 Roto Auction Keeper League, would you keep Jay Bruce at $32 and or Jon Niese at $9. (Some HUGE Mets fans in the league who'd pay 15-17 for Niese.)
(Jeff from Manahawkin, NJ)
Then couldn't you trade Niese to someone who thinks he's a bargain? That might be best value for what you get in return. Exploit the market! (Harry Pavlidis)
2012-03-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your sleeper NL only pitchers this year?
(will.I.ain't from roaming)
I chose Jon Niese for the recent Lineup Card on breakout players. Otherwise, I might roll the dice on Chris Volstad with the hopes that he does break out this season. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, how much would you think a pitching coach should be tinkering with a pitcher who's moderately successful? Mets Pitching Coach Dan Warthen for example has been trying to get Jon Niese to increase his sinker usage (actually occurring) and his change-up usage (which hasnt actually occurred) despite both having been poor pitches in the past. At what point should a pitching coach just let be with what works?
(garik16 from New York)
Josh, you know a lot more about Niese than I do, and IIRC, you've not been happy with the changes Warthen has made with Niese. I'd be inclined to defer to you there.

Certainly I imagine sometimes players ought to listen to their coaches, and I know nothing about Warthen's techniques or philosophy in general, so I'll plead ignorance in this specific case. (Mike Fast)
