DateQuestionAnswer
2017-05-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)What about Rubby De La Rosa closing in Arizona? Is that a thing, or just my own wishful thinking?
(Scott Cooper from Boston)
I really liked Scott Cooper. But your imagination is really vivid if you see this happning. Although he's got a good closer's name, which of course counts for nothing really. Let's get him back in the majors first. I mean, if you do a dynasty league where there's 20 teams and 40 slots and you're not contending, eat your heart out. (David Brown)
2005-01-24 18:00:00 (link to chat)I've seen a photo of the changes they're making at Dodger Stadium, and it seems like a significant amount of foul territory has turned into Seating For The Stars. Are you guys on this? Maybe Chavez Ravine will no longer be where offenses to go die. Wondering if anyone has tried to calculate the effects of the changes, and I wondered also whether this was factored into PECOTA (or are those numbers park neutral?)
(dave from Huntington Beach, CA)
I've gotten a few questions on this one. It's really pretty astounding the difference the amount of foul territory available makes to scoring in a park--just ask Scott Cooper.

I can imagine a system that could use the park's old and new dimensions to come up with an estimate of the change in scoring a park might see following a structural change like this, but we don't have one. Nate did eyeball a change in the park factor for Chavez Ravine when generating the PECOTAs in Baseball Prospectus 2005, though, and I agree with his estimate: it'll elevate scoring, but not enough to change Dodger Stadium's status as one of the most extreme pitchers' parks in the majors.
