BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Red Sox do with Mookie? Is JBJ's job in jeopardy now with him getting CF reps?
(Henri from Mexico)
Prospect Wars. Bradley Jr's struggled mightily at the plate & Betts keeps on hitting while Bradley is doing the opposite of that. It might be, but the Red Sox are also running out Grady Sizemore. (Ron Shah)
2014-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Jeff, really enjoy these. What would be a solid comp for Brandon Nimmo? A Shin-Soo Choo type as a leadoff guy with average speed but high on-base, or do you think he can fill out more and be a middle of the order bat eventually? Also, do you think he has present power that he just hasn't learned how to utilize in games yet, or he still needs to put on significant muscle or improve his bat speed.
(Ron Mexico from Cedar Rapids)
Nimmo is a great example of why comps can get us in trouble but why they can also be valuable tools. I've seen Nimmo four times this season already and I'm still not sure who he's going to be like. He has some Choo-ish qualities, most notably his plate discipline. The real question for Nimmo is how much power he develops. I don't see him becoming a middle of the order bat, though he's built like a guy who could be one. He has a leadoff man's game, though, and I think that's where he ends up. I don' know if he's Grady Sizemore, or Choo or a slightly slower Jacoby Ellsbury or what. That's why I won't make a comp on him just yet. At this point, pick a left-handed hitting center fielder with plus plate discipline and you've got a shot to be correct. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)I dropped Grady Sizemore for Chase Headley. Will Headley pick it up? I also am wondering if Yangervis Solarte will keep it it?
(Joe from NY)
Sizemore will keep it up if he's healthy, yes, but who knows how long that lasts? I'm sure Headley will perform better than he is currently, but I don't think he's a superstar - I'm down on him compared to some. No, Solarte will not keep this up. If you dropped Sizemore and you still have Solarte and you don't need a SS, rectify that immediately. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)If you had O. Taveras and believed he was going to be another Grady Sizemore and wanted to trade him and needed pitching what pitcher(s) would you target in a trade ?
(Brian from Toronto)
Well, Taveras isn't nearly as handsome, so you're already going to have a harder time moving him. Depending on whether you're angling for the "awesome for a few years" part of Sizemore or the "hurt for a while and desperately trying to make a comeback" part of Sizemore obviously changes how you'd handle Taveras. In light of his hype through the minors and recent injury concerns, perhaps the whole career arc is worth considering, and in that case, I hear Grady Sizemore is available. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Seems like there could be two center fielder types who haven't been good/playing since 2011 or so -- Chris Young and Grady Sizemore -- earning significant playing time. Curious which you find more likely: An injury-prone player or a long-slumping player as the better bet to return to productivity in a close-to-full-time role.
(Zach from Virginia)
In the abstract, I'd assign a higher probability of a productive full season to the slumping guy who's stayed healthy. (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Too much being made out of Grady Sizemore's training camp.I just don't buy the idea of Sizemore being a full-time player.Are the Red Sox really dumb enough to send back Jackie Bradley at AAA ?
(Spirou from Montreal)
Well, I'm with you on being conservative about Sizemore, but it's not like Bradley disappears if he does go to Triple-A (and I don't know that he will). Pawtucket is only a 48-minute drive away. (Thanks, Google Maps!) (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, I'm picking third in an inaugural dynasty league draft. I'm thinking of picking Goldshmidt since I assume Trout-Cabrera will go 1-2, but I want an experts opinion
(aidanh21 from LA)
We talked about this a bit in Episode 3 of TINO, but I think Goldschmidt at 3 is a fine choice. Personally I'd lean Bryce Harper, as there's legit 50-homer upside there and he's still like 12 years old, but no one would blame you for taking Goldy. McCutchen also deserves some consideration, but I think I'd have him fifth. You could also consider taking Grady Sizemore. (Ben Carsley)
2014-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Please make four ultraspecific predictions about Grady Sizemore for 2014, at least two of which must include numbers
(Jonah from Santa Barbara)
I know I just talked about Sizemore, but I like this question.

1. He'll get hurt at least twice
2. He'll get at least 10 hits this season
3. He'll have a smile that can light up a room
4. He'll get hurt a third time (Matthew Kory)
2014-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Matty Matt! - Between Shaun Marcum, Jeff Francoeur and Nyjer Morgan, who has the best chance, if any of having a meaningful impact to the tribe this year?
(tablack from Cleveland)
That's a toughie. Betting on oft-injured pitchers isn't smart, and Jeff Francoeur is and has been done for a while now. So I guess that leaves Morgan who hit pretty well in Japan last season. I'll take him! And unless you're a big believer in David Murphy, Cleveland may need some outfield help this season. (Should've signed Grady Sizemore! joke) (Matthew Kory)
2013-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is a player you thought would be a no doubt star and flopped? And on the other side, who was a guy you thought wouldn't amount to anything and became a star?
(Robert from California)
I thought Kevin McReynolds would be a big star. Maybe I was focusing too much on tools. With the benefit of hindsight, I believe that this athlete’s cool demeanor reflected a lack of drive. Later I thought that Grady Sizemore would be a perennial All-Star, even though he struck out too much. I didn’t realize how physically brittle he would be. (I’d love to see Grady make a comeback, even for a season or two.)
I didn’t think that Ryne Sandberg would be a Hall of Famer—or anything close to it. I saw him when the Phillies still imagined him as a shortstop, and I remember writing in my notebook that he only had “warning track power.” But Dallas Green knew what the kid could do, and one of his first moves when he went to Chicago was to trade Ivan DeJesus to the Phils for Larry Bowa and Sandberg. What a steal! And what a great fit for Sandberg as a second baseman hitting in Wrigley Field. (Kevin Kerrane)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Forget the Dahl/trout comps, but is it possible with dahl we are looking at a possible non injured Grady Sizemore comp?
(tigerw701 from mpls, mn)
I don't think he;s on that level, personally. Sizemore was a serious stud. Dahl is good player with a high ceiling and excellent baseball skills, but Sizemore was closer to Trout in terms of raw talent. Not that extreme, but close enough to make the case (Jason Parks)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)A buddy who is in this chat right now traded me Adalberto Mondesi for Grady Sizemore in a keeper of all keeper leagues. Please help me in pitying the fool.
(tigerw701 from mpls, mn)
Mondesi is 17, so you will need to keep him for a long time before he reaches the majors. (Jason Parks)
2012-12-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on Grady Sizemore? Is he going to play in 2013?
(Travis from Cleveland)
My grandmother is obsessed with Grady Sizemore. For her sake, I hope he does play somewhere next year, but he's a straight up reclamation project. (Russell Carleton)
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Considering the Rays luck with "buy-low" types of guys, plus noted possible interest in Chone Figgins and Ryan Raburn, does either player have anything serviceable left in them to make them another possible future success story for the team? Chone's tenure in Seattle seems to say that he wasn't a great everyday starter, but definitely didn't deserve to get mothballed as he did(considering Seattle's lineup and Safeco's park factors). Also, which team sounds most likely to give Grady Sizemore or Jason Bay long enough looks to see if either can regain past statuses as star-level players?
(jlarsen from chicago)
I don't know--what about Figgins suggests that he has something left? It doesn't seem to me that he was unjustly marginalized in Seattle. I'd rather take a chance on Raburn.

I'd say the Indians would be a favorite for both Sizemore and Bay, though both players are probably "minor-league deal with invite to spring training" types at this point? (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Grady Sizemore? If he ends up hurt again by the end of spring training, is Ezequiel Carrera a fantasy asset?
(LoyalRoyal from Doin' Time in Leavenworth)
He's just so risky. Unless you get him late in a draft, I wouldn't bother. I don't see him ever staying healthy for a full year. Carrera could very well be a fantasy asset, especially with his speed, although the Indians do have other options. They could put Brantley in CF again and put a guy like Shelly Duncan in LF (though I don't think Brantley is a good CF). They have Ryan Spilborghs and Aaron Cunningham too, but I think Carrera has the inside track on those two. The interesting thing with him is how often they batted him leadoff when he was filling in last season. (Derek Carty)
2011-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)"Now, if only they could get something out of 1B..." ============ Given the plethora of injuries he's had the past couple of years, could you see the Indians moving Grady Sizemore to 1B (too short?) to save wear and tear?
(dianagramr from NYC)
I'm not sure that the wear & tear really gets saved. He's getting hurt sliding. What's so sad about Sizemore, is this was a guy, as Danny Knobler from CBS pointed out today, missed 5 games in 4 years. Feel like he's just sliding down the chain. (Mike Ferrin)
2011-02-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Grady Sizemore: what does a full recovery look like for him?
(Tony from Albuquerque)
A full recovery looks like "Grady Sizemore, best CF in baseball". I don't expect a full recovery, though. (Ken Funck)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc, need to keep one Lowrie, B.J. Upton or Grady Sizemore. Leaning towards Upton but the strike outs are killer and Grady has a bad knee.
(scottziegler from Wisconsin)
Sizemore can surely be had as a redraft given his troubles. I would go with Upton here if it's a straight fantasy league. If it's more of a realistic game like Scoresheet, maybe Lowrie. Upton could be a SB machine with some power and plenty of runs. He was worth almost $16 last year in mixed and $25 in AL-only. (Marc Normandin)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)One spot in a keeper league left between Michael Young, Grady Sizemore and Weiters. Who do you pick?
(Tony from New Mexico)
What kind of keeper league? Salaries? Contracts? Just keep X number of players? Who else are you keeping? (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)What type of player will Andrew McCutchen become - is he more Grady Sizemore, Carl Crawford, or something else?
(adfeit from NYC)
Crawford with fewer steals would be my quick comp, though I'm not sure how comfortable I am with that. I like McCutchen a whole lot though. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone seems to take it as a given that the Indians are due to turn it around soon, but are they really? I think the Santana injury made a lot of Cleveland fans get a familiar feeling. (That feeling: despair.)
(Junior Ortiz from NYC)
It can be an impressive lineup if everyone stays healthy and on their development track. On the other hand, there's real worry about Grady Sizemore, and whether Choo will have to serve his time in the military, and now about whether Santana comes back. The organization has a huge pitching hole, so even if they push 900 runs, it might not be enough.

Not sure what's wrong over there. Enormous respect for the management team, but this is four years in five with no results. (Joe Sheehan)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)If the Indians were able to procure some type of ace level starter for 2011. Would they be in the running for the division? I don't see anything wrong with the offense if healthy.
(SaberTJ from Cleveland, OH)
I do. Other than Choo, Carlos Santana, and a comeback campaign for Grady Sizemore, there isn't a whole lot there. (Steven Goldman)
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've read a Grady Sizemore comparison for Brett Jackson. Fair or foul?
(John from Kansas)
Foul. Jackson's tools are good, but not in Sizemore's league. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Injuries asside..do you think we might have overrated Grady Sizemore a bit? He has been regressing and exposed (not the internet pics) over recent years.
(Manny from Cleveland, OH)
Can you put the injuries aside? I don't think you can separate the pain from the production, or lack thereof. In any case, he hasn't been healthy since 2008, and he had a 30-30 season that year. His batting average was down a little from the ~.289 he hit from 2005-2006, but all things considered he was about as good in '08 as he had been in 2006 and 2007. I don't know if he'll be the same guy going forward, but I don't see the decline you're talking about prior to last season's elbow and abdominal problems. (Steven Goldman)
2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Four years ago I had an initial draft for an AL only dynasty league and built my team around Grady Sizemore, Alex Gordon, BJ Upton, Felix Hernandez, Scott Kazmir and Joba Chamberlain. Do you know of any support groups I can join?
(achaik from maine)
Well at least Bossman Junior is doing well again! (Marc Normandin)
2010-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy, thanks for chatting. What's the funnier Tracy Morgan SNL sketch, Brian Fellows or Astronaut Jones? Because neither of those is as funny as my second and third round picks of Grady Sizemore and Kendry Morales earlier this season.
(bctowns from Chicago, IL)
Really important question. I think the ceiling on Fellows was always higher, but Astronaut Jones was more consistent.

Also, my condolences. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-05-11 16:30:00 (link to chat)During my fantasy draft I felt like a Billy Beane prodigy when I grabbed both Grady Sizemore and Nate McLouth with mid-round picks. Since then, of course, their terrible starts in the first five weeks has gotten me to channel my inner Jim Bowden. What's the thought on these two moving forward? More Sample Size Theater with an inevitable rebound, or did everyone else just wisely stay away from these two in the first place?
(OTSgamer from Dallas, TX)
Grady Sizemore is a great young baseball player. I can't figure out why, but he just doesn't seem to be showing the amazing eye he's shown for several years. He's also swinging and missing a lot more than he used to. I'm guessing he should bounce back, but he must be doing something wrong in his approach to be getting these results, maybe not seeing the ball well or something. Nate McLouth's line drive rate is pretty low this year, but not low enough to explain his atrocious BABIP. I have to imagine that bounces back, because nothing else seems crazily out of line. I wouldn't give up on either player at all. (Matt Swartz)
2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Grady Sizemore is hitting .106/.192/.106 against lefties. According to the ESPN Crack Squad, he is hitting 2-for-22 against fastballs at 94 MPH or faster. Doesn't this suggest a loss of bat speed due to lingering injury effects that is forcing him to guess and lunge? At what point do you either ask him to take a couple weeks off or drop him in the order?
(buffum from Austin TX)
His performance certainly worries me given that it may be linked to less than perfect health. I'd have moved him down in the order weeks ago; at this point I think they need to find out whether he's hurt and give him some time away, because he sure isn't helping the situation by playing through it. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Marc - thanks for the chat. Grady Sizemore is finally at least showing signs of life, with two hits in three of his last five games. Is this the beginning of a turnaround? I asked Clay about Grady last week, and Clay expressed concern that Grady may never revert to his former self after what he went through last year. Do you agree or do you have a more optimistic outlook to offer me? :) Thanks!
(mikeduin from Seattle)
I thought enough of Grady to splurge on him at auction this offseason, so I have faith he'll revert to form. These things take time sometimes (see: B.J. Upton). (Marc Normandin)
2010-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who replaced Grady Sizemore with Grady from "Sanford and Son"? His walk rate collapsed and his K rate has skyrocketed. Have his eyes gone bad too?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Maybe he saw the damn pictures the rest of us saw.

His strikeout rate isn't abnormally high -- he was about this level in '06 and '07. And his walk rate has been low, but not so low that you'd think there's gotta be something wrong. Remember, it's 20 games, there's a lot of season left, and the last 80 PAs are a very very small portion of what we actually know about Grady. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-04-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everything I read about Grady Sizemore in the offseason predicted a return to his previous level of excellence this season -- is it time to get concerned or is his early season slump nothing to worry about?
(mikeduin from Seattle)
And everyone else did, too. His K/BB rate is well off his history, there's little power showing, the BABIp actually dropped between 2007-08 and has never recovered. I am worried that he's not the player he was, and that the injuries have taken a toll that isn't going to heal. That would be a very sad thing, for baseball in general, not just Indian fans. (Clay Davenport)
2010-04-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Please tell me Grady Sizemore is/will be OK.
(dianagramr from NYC)
Well, the commercial I just saw said he slept on his glove, not a pillow, so if he has dropped that habit by now he could be okay. I know it's tough to look at a .209/.292/.372 and remind yourself it's only 48 PA into a season, but... it's only 48 PA into a season. I don't think he's going to be a .280/.380/.550, but I never thought of him as capable of that, honestly. I can see Sizemore finishing the year at around .270/.355/.485, which is certainly valuable albeit disappointing, but we both know there's nothing to worry about right now. (Eric Seidman)
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)On my strat teams, I refused to trade Grady Sizemore, Cole Hamels and Ervin Santana this offseason. Who is more likely to bounce back to top form?
(lou from Cape Cod)
I think there's a good argument to be made--and has been made by my colleagues here at BP--that Hamels was and will be just fine. With a nod to them, I think Sizemore's the one who truly bounces back. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Tommy, How close do you think Adam Jones is to becoming the best fantasy CFer in the AL? If he can build on last season, I don't think he's all that far off from Curtis Granderson, or even Grady Sizemore maybe in a year or two.
(Jimmy from NJ)
I think Adam Jones is going to be an absolute fantasy stud in no more than two years. The thing that keeps him from being an A+ centerfielder is that he is limited on the base paths to about 10-15 steals. The home runs should keep growing and could reach 30+. I wouldn't bet against this guy. A healthy Sizemore could reclaim the AL CF title, but Jones will at least make it interesting. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)Is Grady Sizemore a good value pick this year given his problems last year? Is he someone you are targeting?
(MarinerDan from SF)
It's tricky, because I think enough people will think that way that he'll probably be priced correctly. If he drops to, say, late second round--go nuts. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are the various issues that afflicted Grady Sizemore in 2009 likely to linger?
(dantroy from davis)
If you are in one of my fantasy leagues, yes. Sizemore is coming off two surgeries, so stay away!

If you are not, then no ... two minor surgeries that shouldn't have any effect on his season. A healthy Sizemore, ready on Day 1 of Spring Training with the energy that Manny Acta is going to bring to that team is something I want on my team. (Will Carroll)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it me or is Grady Sizemore going to be a complete steal as a mid to late 2nd round pick? Pretty sure he is the only 40/40 threat in baseball. I would take him over Kemp every day and twice on my birthday.
(Sean Burroughs from Walmart )
I'm not sure how much his stock has actually fallen, especially with people being worried about Carlos Beltran's health. People might go for Kemp first due to his having a higher AVG, along with potentially more R and more RBI though, so he may fall. Hmm. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Think Grady Sizemore will return to his old form or did he peak and is now fading?
(john from ct)
I think he'll be close to his old form again. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)"Jays got more back than the Twins did for Johan Santana (it would be hard to do worse, I think)." As you note, that's setting the bar pretty low. Is that the worst trade of the last ten years? I can't think of any that are worse off the top of my head...
(mattymatty2000 from philly, pa)
Only time will tell, but I think you can make strong cases for the Expos' acquisition of Bartolo Colon (Grady Sizemore, Cliff Lee and Brandon Phillips to Cleveland) and the Braves' acquisition of Mark Teixeira (Neftali Felix, Elvis Andrus, Jarrod Saltalamacchia - yeah, I can spell it without looking - et al). Still, it's in the picture for the clinkers of note. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)So Joba, Montero, and a couple other prospects for Halladay, right? Having Doc and CC in a short series is too tempting to pass up.
(Elton from Smithtown, NY)
I'm not seeing this at all. You saw what Johan Santana eventually went for two years ago. When you're trading for one year and a negotiating window, for a player with a no-trade clause, you're simply not going to go nuts for that player when you have to pay market price for the next six years. It doesn't make any sense for a team to give up 18 years of value for that kind of deal. That's why the Twins got stuck with what they did (Santana didn't help matters by setting a deadline), and why the massive prospect deals proposed aren't going to happen. Getting one year of a player isn't worth all that.

Besides, the Yankees would be fine if they'd just let their five best starters START and leave them the hell alone. they need outfielders first, and if they really want to go nuts on a deal, should be targeting a Grady Sizemore or a Ryan Braun or someone like that. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)I have money to spend, but give me 3 reasons why I should buy season tickets for the Indians next season?
(Cleveland Sports Fan from Cleveland)
1) The return of Grady Sizemore
2) The likelihood that the team couldn't possibly get off to a worse start than in three of the last four years.
3) The fact that they're unlikely to trade a Cy Young winner for a third straight year.

In all honesty, I think it's going to be a lean year, but I like what they did in hiring Manny Acta, and there are several young players, starting with Matt LaPorta, whose development is worth watching. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-10-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Worst trade of the 00s has to be June 27, 2002: Omar Minaya of the Montreal Expos trades away Cliff Lee, Brandon Phillips, Grady Sizemore and Lee Stevens for Bartolo Colon and Tim Drew. As a Nats fan, I still have delusions of how what they'd be doing right now.
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
I'll always defend that one. On that date, Minaya had little reason to believe those players would ever be Expos. He did exactly the right thing under those circumstances. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Andy Marte deserve a starting spot on the Indians next year? And what is the perception of Grady Sizemore? Still a top ten player to build around?
(Andy from Saskatoon)
He deserves consideration, anyway. The Indians' LF/1B/3B situation might need clarity, which I would provide with a long overdue trade of Jhonny Peralta. That still leaves Matt LaPorta, who ends up at first once Michael Brantley is deemed ready. Not sure Marte can fade all this competition. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)So what happened to Minaya? Back in his Expos days he was thought so well of. Then he goes to Flushing, gets a real budget to work with, and it all went to hell...
(David from DC)
There were no expectations in Montreal. He was just running the team for MLB, and I think everyone felt bad for him.

I guess we can't fault him for his actions up there though, since they thought the team was going to be contracted. Nonexistent teams don't need Cliff Lee and Grady Sizemore. (Marc Normandin)
2009-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for taking the time, Will. When you see a dropoff in performance like Grady Sizemore earlier this year, or Geo Soto, or maybe a David Ortiz, is it safe to assume "something" is wrong physically?
(Stan from Des Plaines)
No, and absent evidence, it's just lazy. It's often right, but not always and even if it is, getting to it the lazy way might make you miss something. Process, not result. (Will Carroll)
2009-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Grady Sizemore is 5-for-11 in stolen bases and is otherwise in an extended slump. He looks okay in the outfield, but could there be something in the strained hamstring vein that the Indians aren't mentioning in public?
(buffum from Austin TX)
I have no evidence for this, but I guess it's possible. (Will Carroll)
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Given his contract and youth, what outfielders in MLB would you take over Markakis for the next six years?
(Steve from DC)
Justin Upton, Grady Sizemore (probably). Um...after that it's tough. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-03-30 18:30:00 (link to chat)So what can you tell me about this Grady Sizemore fellow I've been hearing so much about?
(Rob from Alaska)
My wife has trouble seeing Grady as the heartthrob he is here in Cleveland because he bears a slight resemblance to occasional BP contributor and techie Ben Murphy.

(Where else are you going to find that kind of insightful analysis?) (Keith Woolner)
2009-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do I move Grady Sizemore for either of these packages? Webb/BJ Upton or Kemp/Lincecum. 12 team 5X5, 5 man keeper.
(Ryan from NY)
I'd definitely do it for Webb/Upton. Kemp/Lincecum I'd sure think about. That said, I think Sizemore's going to explode this year. (Will Carroll)
2009-01-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who will be that improbable, unexpected team that makes a serious run at contention - ala Tampa Bay last season?
(bianchiveloce from Anderson, SC)
None of the big losing clubs from last year made the kind of significant steps towards progress that the Rays did over the 2007-2008 offseason. The closest thing we have might be the Giants, but since they outperformed expectations last year riding on Lincecum and Sanchez, I'm not even sure they count.

I mean, unless Will Venable turns into Grady Sizemore, I think we can count the Padres out :-) (Marc Normandin)
2008-09-23 13:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. What do you think of Aubrey Huff going forward? And is Nick Markakis already the best RF in the American League?
(Brendan from Bainbridge)
I wouldn't want to make a long-term commitment to Huff, and while he has had a great season, the Orioles really should look to leverage that in the trade market. He'll never have more value than this, and he's not a part of their future.

Markakis is a total stud, the best RF in the league. He's underappreciated, kind of the AL East version of Grady Sizemore. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-23 13:30:00 (link to chat)Hi Joe .... thanks for the chat ... With all the injuries to frontrunners in the AL MVP race, is there a shot Grady Sizemore pulls an Andre Dawson and wins it with a sub-.500 team?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Not a one. I don't thihk I've seen his name mentioned in any mainstream article. He's batting .270, he doesn't have huge RBIs and his team never contended. It wouldn't be like Andre Dawson winning; it'd be like Rosario Dawson winning. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the ultimate ceiling of Engel Beltre? He is absolutely murdering right handers. Is he along the mold of a Grady Sizemore (less some power)?
(BrowningNagle from Louisville, KY)
Wow -- long time no see Browning. Beltre's ultimate ceiling is off the charts. I haven't seen a player in the Midwest League who can match him on a pure tools level. That said, he has about 2% of Grady Sizemore's approach, and that has to change -- luckily he's get plenty of time. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-02-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the stronger arm? Me or Juan Pierre? (Note: I "probably" lead my slow pitch softball league in outfield assists last year, although most of the base runners have had hip replacements recently.)
(Clay from St. Louis, MO)
Well, if your league is anything like the one I played in last year, getting an assist is actually an accomplishment since we're too old to try to stretch anything or for that matter want to even consider sliding. So I'd have to say yes, your arm is probably competitive.

For 2007 Pierre ranked dead last among centerfielders at -7.3 with a rate of -6.0. Grady Sizemore is second to last at -4.6 with David DeJesus (-4.5) not far behind. In 2006 Pierre was -1.8 and in 2005 -1.6. From 2005-2007 he finished second to last at -10.7 ahead of only Johnny Damon (-11.2). He wasn't nearly as bad as far as rate was concerned because of his greater playing time (-3.0 per 550 opportunities). From a rate perspective Brady Clark did the worst among centerfielders who received much playing time (256 adjusted games in those three years) at -5.3 runs per 550 opportunities.

Who was the worst in 2005-2007 you might ask (ok, you didn't but play along)? Shawn Green was -16.0 and Shannon Stewart was -11.8 before we get to Damon and Pierre. Jason Bay (-10.5) and Xavier Nady (-10.4) were no great shakes either. (Dan Fox)
2006-02-07 15:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, how many questions are you getting on when the Pecota cards are coming out? Also, Robinson Cano: Next Tony Lazzeri, or next Sandy Alomar Sr.?
(JRMayne from Riverbank)
Unless I'm mistaken, the new PECOTA cards went live today. They're betterer than ever before.

Look!

Cano looks to me like a .280/.325/.420 guy over the long term, with big swings from year to year. How well that plays depends entirely on how he develops defensively.

(Joe Sheehan)

2009-06-09 14:30:002009 Draft CoverageSeattle takes Ackley with pick number two. All of the rumors about them passing on him seemed like a smokescreen all along. He was announced as an outfielder, but as an aside, some teams have talked about seeing if his hands are good enough for a look at second base. Either way, his bat is going to be pretty special for the position. I think he could be a Grady Sizemore kind of player offensively with less power but a better batting average. (Kevin Goldstein)
