DateQuestionAnswer
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Cahill - Front of the rotation guy? better in 2012? or 2011 what we should expect?
(DeathSpeculum from 'zona)
I don't like him much. I'm not sure there's all that much space between him and, say, Joel Pineiro. (Sam Miller)
2011-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Steven. I'm a big Yankees, like I know you are, and I was just thinking about some of the trade rumors swirling around the Yankees, especially Zambrano. Why in the world would we take Zambrano and his 37.25 million dollars over the next two years, when we already have a rotation that's too crowded to begin with! Ivan Nova was just sent down for that very reason. If we really want starting pitching, we can wait for this offseason, when CJ Wilson and Chris Carpenter, or even lower end options like Joel Pineiro and Edwin Jackson will be available, for a lot less might I add. I just don't think now's the time for Big Z in the Big Apple. Your Thoughts?
(Big Bob from Indianapolis)
I know I'm a crazy dreamer, but I'd rather see some of the internal options, starting with the two guys at Double-A, Betances and Banuelos, get a shot before any of the mediocre options you just named. (Steven Goldman)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Still a believer in Ben Sheets? Where do you think he'll wind up?
(Phil S. from NJ)
Absolutely, I'd rather put my money on Ben Sheets and a "maybe he's still that good" than Joel Pineiro and a "maybe he thrives away from Dave Duncan." But after the time away, I wonder if he wouldn't like to be on a contender. I could see him landing with the Dodgers on an incentive-laden deal after they clear up some of their arbitration issues and get a better sense of their own freedom of action. The Mets might be a similar sort of suitor. If he elects to change leagues, maybe Anaheim. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Suppose you're Joel Pineiro and trying to decide which offer to grossly overpay you you're going to accept. If you're looking for another team with a pitching coach with the powers of a voodoo curse (let's face it, how else could Dave Duncan have done with Pineiro what he did?), which team, and which coach, do you find most appealing?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Pineiro is unlikely to sign somewhere because of a specific pitching coach. The Cards may have taken a chance on him given Duncan's super-powers, but I cannot foresee a situation in which he and his agent decide that Team X is the place to go because they have Pitching Coach Y, unless it involves the Cardinals being in the ballpark of other offers. This just has the feel of an eventual Mets overpay. (Eric Seidman)
2009-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think that Cardinals fans and Larussa himself were delusional for thinking that Joel Pineiro as the #3 starting pitcher would get them out the NLDS?
(Dan from Lexington-Concord)
Did they have a better option? They got to the playoffs on two good pitchers and just enough from the back half. Can they win next year without Dave Duncan spinning golden pitchers out of straw? (Will Carroll)
2009-07-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think being able to force GIDP is a consistent skill like K's for guys like Joel Pineiro and John Lannan?
(George from Kansas)
I think it's more a function of groundball rates and runners on first base, one of which is a skill and the other an effect. I suppose you could check GB rate in DP situations versus others to see if there's an uptick, but you do have sample-size issues. (Joe Sheehan)
