DateQuestionAnswer
2017-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)What do you do if you're Jerry DiPoto with the pitching staff this winter? And is 2017 Mike Zunino (currently 13th in BP WARP) peak Mike Zunino?
(Roger DeSwanns from Out and About)
Can we take a moment to appreciate the 2017 Mariners pitching situation? The club has used 40 guys. 40. 4. 0. I watched so much Yovani Gallardo and Sam Gaviglio and (checks sheet)... Christian Bergman. My Christmas family party trick is going to be memorizing all 40 pitchers and reciting them in order of first use, which I imagine will mean I'll be able to sit in the corner and drink an eggnog alone the whole time. So if you're Dipoto, and you're using your holiday the same way, I assume you pencil in Paxton, Felix, Mike Leake, Erasmo Rameriez, then (mumbles mumbles). Gotta imagine they'll try to get some cheap back end guys and throw them in with Marco Gonzales and Ariel Miranda and see where they end up. Unless they make a move for Ohtani...

Now, on to Mike Zunino. I think that offensively, this is peak Zunino. Maybe he adds a bit more in average. He probably hits more home runs over a full season. The approach looks solid now. NO REALLY IT DOES. But this is a productive major leaguer and that's a huge win for him and the org. The thing I'm hoping rebounds in 2018 is the defense. His framing is starting to come back, after being awful in the beginning. If we see a real jump forward in value, it's marrying the offensive improvements with defense approaching what we saw in 2014. But honestly, given the journey, this version of him is a pretty neat thing. (Megan Rowley)
2015-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you heard anything on Ariel Miranda of the Orioles? He has been pitching well since he has come to the states and has moved through 3 levels to AA.
(Alex from Baltimore)
Well, he's a Cuban lefthander, so inherently I'm on board. Stuff certainly sounds interesting, reports have had him reaching the mid-90's with a good splitter. Chance he can help the O's down the stretch, more likely he's in the mix next year. (Wilson Karaman)
