BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Have a favorite pick you've made in the reliever draft thus far? Didn't make it into your league so can't see your roster.
(Alex from Milwaukee)
My league is in the middle of the 13th round. My 12 picks so far:

Craig Kimbrel
Grant Balfour
Junichi Tazawa
Kevin Siegrist
Craig Stammen
Will Smith
Carlos Martinez
Adam Ottavino
Wade Davis
Manny Parra
Heath Hembree
Santiago Casilla

(For anyone who doesn't know what we're talking about, Sam is running a reliever-only fantasy league with Effectively Wild listeners. Only categories are runs allowed and strikeouts, and only relief innings count.) (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-02-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What gives?
(The Shark from Chicago)
Your comps, bro. PECOTA has Samarzija at about replacement level for 2014. I'm taking the over. Shark has comps like Manny Parra, he's viewed thru the lens of a swing man profile. And he may be a special case since he's a low mileage pitcher (midwestern kid who played football hasn't piled up as many innings as other guys his age, going back to his youth). And FRA doesn't like him. So, he's a very good case for us. One, he's the type of guy who may be a projection topper, for the reasons discussed above, and he may be someone who we give a better rating to as we crack open FRA and see if we can improve it. (Harry Pavlidis)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)You are the GM of the Brewers, obviously you need pitching to go behind Gallardo and Wolf (who hasn't been bad the second half)...Who do you get? And I don't think you can get much for Fielder (may be 1 starter)...what do you do...Trade Gamel and Lawrie for more? Keep Fielder and just halfway upgrade? Trade Corey Hart?
(JT from MKE)
I would rather trade Prince Fielder at this point. In the years when his power isn't all-world, his lack of defense cuts into his value big time. The optimism of the offseason will cause someone to give up what the Brewers need if they want to shop him, much more so than during the regular season when they were listening to teams.

Chris Narveson has looked pretty good as of late, though I'm not sure how sustainable it is. Getting Manny Parra out of the rotation is probably for the best. They may want to go for some league average guys who can strike out some batters, because that defense still isn't any good. (Marc Normandin)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many starts do the Brewers give Suppan? Not that their alternatives are very attractive, but we know how this movie ends, right?
(Mike W from Chicago)
It sounds as though the Brewers are closing in on the decision to make David Bush their #4 behind Gallardo, Wolf and Davis, which leaves Manny Parra, Chris Narveson and Suppan battling for one spot. Narveson made a good impression last year, and has further helped his cause this spring, while Parra seems to have really clicked with Rick Peterson and seems eager to mend his wayward ways. I don't think it's out of the question that the Brewers concede Suppan is a sunk cost and cut him by the end of the spring.

And a good riddance it will be. (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)
2009-06-05 15:30:00 (link to chat)Just got a tweet that Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder would like to have a word with you regarding your comments about the Cubs. Why is it more likely that they and their buddies will crater than that the Cubs will continuing being what they've been?
(Bill from New Mexico)
In my opinion, the Cardinals need every single start from Chris Carpenter from here on out to have a fighting chance at the playoffs. And as far as the Brewers go, I mentioned earlier that acquiring a top-tier pitcher might actually put them ahead of the Cubs. But I get a bit wary when I see that four of their five rotation spots are filled by the underachieving Dave Bush, back-end extraordinaire Braden Looper, the disappointing Manny Parra, and the hang-it-up-already Jeff Suppan. (Eric Seidman)
2008-03-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike, here's a question that appears to be growing more and more relevant: of the following up-and-coming SPs, can you rank them in terms of value they will provide to a fantasy team THIS YEAR assuming they all get spots in the rotation? The SPs are Manny Parra, Edinson Volquez, Johnny Cueto, Ian Kennedy, Gio Gonzalez and Jonathan Sanchez. This should be relevant to most fantasy players looking to make a great WW pickup early in the season.
(The Grinch from Whoville)
I guess you were one of the millions to go see see Horton hears a Who huh?

Parra is making the Brewers make a tough decision but may not make the club at first. Volquez has a lot to prove. Cueto and Kennedy are arms that the Reds and yanks absolutely love and right now they are my top two of this list. I can't see Gio not being a member of the rotation this year at some point but when is up to a few factors and Sanchez like parra is nice sleeper with high upside. Solid list of names. (Mike Siano)
2008-01-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)I stashed Manny Parra on my fantasy team 6 years ago. Do I finally have legitimate cause for excitement? I didn't expect to see him on a top 100 list, much less in the top 50.
(mattcollins from Boston)
Be excited, be very excited. I love his arm, especially from the left side. Legitimate above-average starting pitcher in my mind. (Kevin Goldstein)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesWhere I'm at is that it's not SABATHIA, but a four-starts-in-12-days version, coming off the 122-pitch start, clearly fighting his command. I don't know that the difference between that and Manny Parra for three innings is worth more than the potential gain of a short start on Sabathia's next outing.

CC starts the third.
