DateQuestionAnswer
2018-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Anticipating that he will be the everyday shortstop when he suits up for Detroit this spring, Jordy Mercer will be the most-experienced player to make his team debut at that position for the Tigers since Jhonny Peralta in 2010 and the oldest (I think) since Adam Everett in 2009. I've scouted Mercer's modest stat line, but you've watched him regularly with the Pirates. What do you think it's reasonable for the Tigers to expect to get from Mercer in 2019?
(Alec Denton from Atlanta)
Mercer is your basic generic shortstop. The advanced metrics all agree that he's become a below-average fielder, but it's more a case of him not making the spectacular play than butchering routine ones. Jose Iglesias he's not. Two things to be concerned about. First, he's never played more than 149 games in a season, so expect to see a fair amount of Ronny Rodriguez. Second, the bat, which was acceptable in 2016 and 2017, declined in 2018. Could be injuries, or could be a guy who's 32. In any case, he's down-in-the-order placeholder, but looking at the Tigers' farm system, I'm not exactly sure for whom. Isaac Paredes? Tigers gonna win, what, 65-75 games this year, maybe? Mercer's not going to keep them out of the postseason or anything. (Rob Mains)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can the Rangers reasonably expect to get in return for Chris Davis assuming they will try to move him this offseason. Where is he most likely to end up?
(Randy K from Kansas)
Davis has shown flashes of what could be possible before, but he has also shown exactly why he cannot hold down a major league job. He doesn't walk, strikes out a ton, and while his fielding isn't bad, it's not on the same level of Adam Everett circa-2007, when a sub-.230 TAv was okay. Flipping the question around, what teams would seek Davis? Maybe the Pirates? Maybe the Royals or As? Unfortunately I think the return on a trade for Davis would be more laden with depth than upside or talent given that first base isn't exactly a tough position to fill. (Eric Seidman)
2010-06-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think the Angels are better off acquiring a 1b, 3b, or SS? I suppose a lot depends on how bad Aybar's knee injury is - if he's going to miss more than a couple weeks, maybe trade for Lowell, put Brandon Wood at SS (or sign Adam Everett) and go with Napoli at 1b?
(Dennis from LA)
Wood has no business in their lineup right now. He just is not going to be a productive major league player. They'd be better suited employing whichever of Wilson Valdes/Juan Castro is DFAd when Jimmy Rollins comes back than giving Wood more and more ABs. Yes, maybe that's hyperbolic, but moving Wood anywhere other than out of the lineup is already a bad start. Love the idea of getting Lowell, but not sure why Napoli would have to go to 1B. Try and trade for Branyan for the rest of the year. I'd also avoid Adam Everett -- he only ever did one thing well and he no longer does it that well. (Eric Seidman)
2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Phillies seem to have OF prospects and C prospects just fine, and some pitchers. But is there ANYTHING in the infield? I mean, anyone you can even possibly project to play at the majors in the system in infield? Freddy Galvis as Adam Everett?
(Joe from Philly)
You can't have everything! Back to back NL titles, one world series, a very good system -- so what, you don't have any infielders. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-06-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Did my cardinals get a potential steal and SS of the future in ryan jackson? Or will pete kozma/tyler green get that spot?
(brian from missouri)
I think Jackson's ultimate top-line ceiling is Adam Everett maybe, and that's just a maybe. He's a better defensive player than Kozma or Greene or Green, but that bat is a massive question. If they had designated FIELDERS, he would go higher. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-04-10 16:30:00 (link to chat)Christina, As a Twins fan, I was wondering if Joe Crede was the right man to acquire to fix the Twins problems at third base, and could we have gotten a better offensive shortstop who played the same good defense as Nick Punto?
(twinkies25 from MN)
I guess I have issues on this one, in that I sort of like the idea of putting Crede within the division to take his chance at putting the hurt on his former ballclub, and because a healthy Crede is an adequate source of right-handed power at the tail end of a lineup, not to mention a plus defender at the hot corner. The problem is that, by being a Twin, he becomes one of their perceived major power sources as a matter of their selection bias for a few too many powerless options.

The Punto quandary is a bit more complicated, in that there's a well thought-out group that says Punto's terrible when he's more than a utilityman, but Punto's pretty good when he's your top infield reserve. It might have been nice to go after Orlando Cabrera, but there really weren't that many options at short available on the market, and I'd rather still have Punto than, say, taking another spin with Adam Everett. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the AL West appearing so winnable, can the A's really afford to give Bobby "Bones" Crosby a season's worth of at-bats? And what better options are still out there (either in-house or via FA) besides the obvious one in Orlando Cabrera?
(Adam from Italy)
It really does seem to be down to Cabrera, especially since so many of the Kathy Griffin D-listers (I'm looking at you, Adam Everett) are already under contract. But I guess I'm a little more sanguine, in that I'd be willing to risk Cliff Pennington for long stretches. The problem's more one of the additional questions over Eric Chavez's playability and availability, and how well Mark Ellis bounces back from his latest spin with the injury bug, because that's an entire infield's worth of unknowns that no amount of happy thoughts get to go away. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-25 13:30:00 (link to chat)Love the defense numbers you've been running. Defensive analysis sure has come a long way in just the last couple years. My question is how effective would it be to sub in amazing fielders, regardless of hitting ability, at SS and 2b when you have an extreme groundball pitcher on the mound? I.E. What if the Indians had signed Adam Everett and started a middle infield of Everett and Cabrera when Westbrook and Carmona were on the mound? How much would this increase the DEF EFF?
(twayda from Chicago)
I haven't looked into that question but keep in mind that Everett is really in a class by himself.

My guess is that it could pay off at one of the two positions with an elite defender but perhaps not both at the same time. If both middle infielders were lost causes (and obviously it really depends on what their production level is) offensively you'd really be taking runs off the board, especially in the NL. (Dan Fox)
2008-01-15 14:30:00 (link to chat)What are your predictions for how the Astros old left side of the infield will fare in Minnesota?
(Steve from North Dakota)
I'm still making fun of the fact that they just ditched Adam Everett for nothing. I know he's a replacement level hitter, but he's also one of the best defensive shortstops we've seen in a while. He's a useful player, as long as you don't have 2-3 other offensive ciphers in your lineup at once [cough]

I think he'll be good for Minnesota, though he won't help with their offensive problems. (Marc Normandin)
