BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)You're not wrong to prefer top-3 rotation guys, but the Yanks need to get to the playoffs. Isn't Washburn probably worth 1-2 wins over Darrell Rasner/Sidney Ponson, which could make the difference between baseball and golf come October?
(Razman from Brooklyn, NY)
I don't think that he is, and consider that the Yankees could have Kennedy and Hughes in that mix down the stretch. Hughes is better than Washburn, and Kennedy is about the same. You don't get to the postseason by upgrading by a win or less unless you're adding upside. Washburn has no upside. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-17 15:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the best internal option to replace Wang in the Yankee rotation (at least until hughes or kennedy is ready)? are Alfredo Aceves or Dan McCutchen in the running if you are Cashman?
(Dan from World Financial Center, NY)
In the short term, Dan Giese is probably going to get the ball. He's a journeyman with good control but little upside; his best-case scenario is probably akin to that of the job Darrell Rasner is doing, keeping them in ballgames and waiting for the cavalry to kick some ass but putting some strain on the bullpen as well.

If Giese wears out his welcome and/or Ian Kennedy is throwing the ball well, he's probably the second option after he finishes rehabbing over the next couple of weeks.

I don't know a lot about McCutchen yet. he put up decent numbers last year between High A and Double-A, but he doesn't miss many bats; he's got 5.9 K/9 at Triple-A as we speak, and his EqSO rate last year was about 4.5. He's going to be in that same class as Rasner as well, a guy who if he hits his spots and maintans control could be moderately useful, but he's nowhere near as experienced as Rasner, so I'd expect the going to be rockier. But yeah, I think he might get a shot, even if it's simply as a Brandon Claussen-like audition for a deadline deal.

Aceves I know nothing about beyond his current numbers. Yeah, he's lit up A and Double-A, but he's also 25, so that's not surprising given that he's facing competition that's a few years younger. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)You guys have any write-up on how far, and for how long, pitchers can shift their mean performance (i.e. Darrell Rasner's cutter), vs. what their history tells us is their likely output? Thanks!
(Tony from Brooklyn, NY)
I don't understand the question here Tony -- are you asking if a new pitch can change things? (Will Carroll)
