2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brady Anderson as captivating in person?
(joshua kusnick from ft lauderdale)
In addition to being one of my favorite roto players of all time, he's a terrific dude and "a good sport." For those who didn't catch the story at the time... http://eutawstreetreport.com/fan-challenges-brady-anderson-to-foot-race-at-winter-meetings/ (Cory Schwartz)
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Seriously Jose Bautista? Eric, have you ever seen a more surprising number than 54 hrs for bautista this season? Any chance he even can even hit 40 next year?
(Kenneth from 30 Rockefeller Center)
Well, Luiz Gonzalez's 57 home runs were very surprising but his seasonal tallies prior to that year were at least in the 23-30 range. Brady Anderson was a big surprise, but this feels differently, perhaps because I really believe Bautista was not on steroids. Maybe that's foolhardy on my part but I buy into the idea of a completely changed swing. I don't get why we're so quick to believe Ben Zobrist had an awesome 2009 because of a new swing but not Bautista. Zobrist's approach translated to a higher BA and SLG, Bautista's to more home runs. There is a difference, but people are so damn protective of home runs that it skews our perspective on a lot of things.

As for next year, I'll say 36 home runs for Bautista. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Frank in Vegas - paging Mr. Anderson, Mr. Brady Anderson. He was 32 at the time of the questionable 50 HR year.
(DDriesen from Katonah)
So is Bautista more Ludwick or Anderson, folks? (Marc Normandin)
2009-02-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Pie will emerge in Baltimore,or will he hit like he did in Chicago?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
I have high hopes. The worst-case scenario seems to be a terrific defensive unit out there with Pie, Jones, and Markakis - shades of the Steve Finley, Brady Anderson, Mike Devereaux outfield that helped revive Baltimore's fortunes in 1989. The thing with Pie is always going to be selectivity. If the Orioles can help him on that front maybe he can break through. I feel like 2008 was a lost year for him, one of stagnation. He has more in him than he was able (or allowed) to show in Chi, but stardom seems like a big, big reach to me. (Steven Goldman)
2008-01-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)my prediction: Goose in. Rice misses by an extremely small margin. Much, much bleating commences over the voters who submitted blanks to protest roids users, thus depriving the "deserving" pre-roids slugger.
(TomH from Lexington Park MD)
The Goose is Loose! He gets 85.8 percent, and he's the only one who gets in on this ballot.

Rice falls just shy at 72.2 percent, setting him up for a 15th-year push.

Raines 24.3 percent. Oh is that ugly.
