DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Help! My AL-only team has six players on the DL (Parker, Fister, Willingham, Profar, Izturis, and Pryor), two others nursing hammys (Hardy, Eaton), and a reliever sent down to AAA (Feliz). I can't convince anyone to part with an extra infielder for picks, so I'm stuck relying on the supplemental draft this week. Two picks. I plan on taking an IF and pitcher. Is Yangervis Solarte for real? Should I take him? The alternatives are Roberts, Goins, Flaherty, Sogard, and Wilson. How about Betances? Or should I go for a more stolid Colby Lewis, Aaron Harang or Chris Capuano?
(touchstoneQu from Erie, PA)
The best part about Scoresheet is that you don't have to answer the question of whether Yangervis Solarte is for real. When looking for playing time, your more pressing concern is whether the Yankees think he's for real, and that's likely been answered in the affirmative. We discussed this in the pod, but Solarte should be good for a little pop and some flexibility at both second and third. Sogard would be next, but maybe we just want to overturn that #FaceofMLB fiasco. As for pitchers, stolidness rules the day. We lean towards Lewis or the surprisingly resilient Harang. Betances is enticing, but if you're in the hunt, you can probably get top shelf relief from a non-contender later in the season. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)The only starting pitcher to have two TJs and come back is Chris Capuano. The track record of two-TJ pitchers isn't exactly great, except for relievers. Just sayin'.
(Chris from KC)
It is significantly better for relievers, but it's also a pretty small sample size, especially of guys that have already had major league success. It's a long road, for sure, but he's far from done. He's also far from pitching again. (Jeff Moore)

(yetti from up north)
It is still very early, and off-season movement and additional research will alter this list, but off the top of my head, I like Chris Capuano, Omar Infate, Mike Leake, and Ike Davis late, in addition, I'm sure, to many others. (Derek Carty)

St. Louis has talked to Cleveland about Cliff Lee, with Anthony Reyes and/or catching prospect Bryan Anderson mentioned as possibilities to return to the Indians. Arizona recently talked to the Indians about Lee, but the teams don't look like a match anymore now that the Diamondbacks have traded outfielder Carlos Quentin to the White Sox.

Crasnick! Love that guy - knew I'd seen it somewhere, but I'm not an INsider, so much not be Googlable. (Is that a word?) (Will Carroll)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)What about Chris Capuano for 2009?
(What About Me? from Milwaukee)
Midseason after TJ. (Will Carroll)
2008-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will the real Chris Capuano please stand up! Will we see the 2006 or 2007 version this spring?
(DMB from NYC)
My gut feeling is 2006. He is a really bright guy and he'll figure things out. (John Perrotto)
