DateQuestionAnswer
2019-11-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm curious about your thoughts on Daniel Alvarez, if you have any. Short-relief seems to suit him well, as he really took off after becoming the Thunder's closer. He throws lots of different pitches (I've seen him use cutter, sinker, power curve, power change, and a palmball) and has blossomed into a strikeout machine. I don't envision him as someone the Yankees would protect from the Rule 5, or someone with high risk to be taken - but, do you see him as having a future in the majors this or next season?
(DBITLefty from Miami )
Sure. It's more middle relief than late inning, but I liked the breaking ball, and the Yanks usually get a lot out of these guys (and then they pop up in the Mariners bullpen after a minor Jerry Dipoto deal) (New York Yankees Top 10 Chat)
2019-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it possible that Jerry Dipoto just might not be that good at this? Trading a guy for Nick Rumbelow that he then re-acquired for Edwin Encarnacion doesn't seem...great.
(Dominic from Harrisburg, PA)
this is a fair question, especially because the Dipoto tenure in Anaheim didn't exactly set the Angels up to succeed for the future. That said, E.E. likely didn't have a ton of trade value - an NL team probably wasn't in the cards without the DH, and a lot of teams need more flexibility, not less. Add in age and the sizable-ish money owed, and I think E.E. was never likely to net a large return. I see this as more of a money dump than anything else. Still, at some point you figure Dipoto will have to answer for the fact that none of his trades have helped him compile good, playoff-capable rosters. (Ginny Searle)
2019-04-12 16:00:00 (link to chat)Why isn't every question in this chat about Vogelbach? Please talk at length about this absolute truck of a man!
(Big Person from TD Bank)
I'm delighted that we've finally got to see a Vogelbach run in the team. Destroying Triple-A for another year would have proved very little, and he was out of options anyway, so it was clearly now or never. He's *probably* not going to keep slugging over 1.000, but he's also not doing anything we didn't think he was capable of before - hitting a bunch of dingers was the one thing everyone thought he could do.

That said, if Vogelbach isn't getting on base a ton and slugging over .500 at the major league level then he's probably out of a regular job, because he's not going to give the team any defensive or baserunning value. If he's still a clearly above-average hitter when Kyle Seager gets back, then you'd like to think that Ryon Healy goes down and he sticks around - that is, if Jerry Dipoto hasn't traded him by that point. (Darius Austin)
2017-09-07 20:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. So if new Marlins management (read: Jeter) insists on going through with it, which team has the proper alignment of need, finances and assets to pull off a deal for Stanton? What might that deal look like?
(wileecoyote121 from Mamaroneck, NY)
The Angels have the need and the finances but not the assets. The Diamondbacks might be a good match on all three fronts if they don't re-sign J.D. Martinez. The Yankees could always be a player, although if Judge bounces back from his second-half struggles and the rumors about Bryce Harper wanting to play in the Bronx are true, there might be a roster issue. The Red Sox seem to have their outfield situation set for the next few years. The Nats could be a player, especially if they expect to loser Harper. The Brewers are an interesting possibility since they've been stockpiling cash and prospects and might be getting close to cashing them in. And you never know what Jerry Dipoto might do in Seattle. (Scooter Hotz)
2017-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)What do you do if you're Jerry DiPoto with the pitching staff this winter? And is 2017 Mike Zunino (currently 13th in BP WARP) peak Mike Zunino?
(Roger DeSwanns from Out and About)
Can we take a moment to appreciate the 2017 Mariners pitching situation? The club has used 40 guys. 40. 4. 0. I watched so much Yovani Gallardo and Sam Gaviglio and (checks sheet)... Christian Bergman. My Christmas family party trick is going to be memorizing all 40 pitchers and reciting them in order of first use, which I imagine will mean I'll be able to sit in the corner and drink an eggnog alone the whole time. So if you're Dipoto, and you're using your holiday the same way, I assume you pencil in Paxton, Felix, Mike Leake, Erasmo Rameriez, then (mumbles mumbles). Gotta imagine they'll try to get some cheap back end guys and throw them in with Marco Gonzales and Ariel Miranda and see where they end up. Unless they make a move for Ohtani...

Now, on to Mike Zunino. I think that offensively, this is peak Zunino. Maybe he adds a bit more in average. He probably hits more home runs over a full season. The approach looks solid now. NO REALLY IT DOES. But this is a productive major leaguer and that's a huge win for him and the org. The thing I'm hoping rebounds in 2018 is the defense. His framing is starting to come back, after being awful in the beginning. If we see a real jump forward in value, it's marrying the offensive improvements with defense approaching what we saw in 2014. But honestly, given the journey, this version of him is a pretty neat thing. (Megan Rowley)
2017-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)I hate to say this, but has Jerry Dipoto ever produced a good farm system? Sean Newcomb is the only top pick he's ever drafted that has been good.
(Shaemus from Muncie)
shruggy emoji

In LA? Nah. In Seattle. Nah (yet?). (Megan Rowley)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you feel about Mitch Haniger setting the world on fire this year?
(sailenac from SD)
Love it. Hope it keeps up. Jerry Dipoto is my spirit animal. Love the Mariners, looking forward to watching them play. The whole hitting revolution continues to fascinate me. I particularly love the way it tends to be late bloomers or guys in dire straits who find their way to it. (Matthew Trueblood)
2015-12-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jerry Dipoto isn't dumb... But, what the hell happened in the Miley trade? Did he simply panic after Kuma left and overpay for a slightly valuable asset?
(M's Fan from Seattle)
Yes. That. And I'm not sure why. LOVED his work up to that point. Hopefully he's not on tilt. (Matthew Trueblood)
2013-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Jerry Dipoto (and staff) will be with the Angels next year? (I hope so, but I agree it looks like Scioscia will be back :(
(Dennis from LA)
To be clear, I really have no idea, and I hope he is. But it seems like Jerry's gone. People seem to think he's gone. Sad and dumb. (Sam Miller)
2013-08-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the official BP odds on who is getting fired between Mike Scoisia and Jerry DiPoto?
(Eric from Anaheim)
Speaking for myself, I'd say the odds are against Dipoto. Which wouldn't be the biggest tragedy for him, because he'd probably get to go be a GM for a team that doesn't have Hamilton and Pujols. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Angels did almost nothing at the deadline, what does this mean for the future? Farm system is still shallow and too many bad contracts to try and trade away. Any moves in the winter?
(Jim from LAA)
I just don't think there were many moves to make, at least not many moves they felt necessary to make now. I'm sure Jerry Dipoto will shake things up this winter, he'll have to. They chose to build around Pujols and Hamilton and there's no real way out of it beyond hoping those guys can get back close to form next season. If they don't it won't matter what Dipoto does. (R.J. Anderson Trade Deadline Wrap Chat)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think it was smart for Jerry Dipoto to sign Josh Hamilton instead of Zack Greinke? Jerry Dipoto said signing Josh allows him to create depth in outfield and allows him to trade for SP.
(Keith from Newport Beach)
I really like DiPoto, but I think between the two I'd have preferred Greinke. It does look like he is going through with that plan with Trumbo and Bourjos being rumored almost daily. (Paul Sporer)
2011-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Cheslor Cuthbert is 18 years old, hitting .329 with a .869 OPS at a third. Have other people caught on yet?
(Travis from KC)
KG has him in his Top 50 midseason and had him in his Top 15 even after the Grienke deal. He's obviously taken a big step to actualizing the talent. But it's very tough for most to get too excited about a player before they do it at AA. Remember: Jerry DiPoto got crushed at the deadline for the Dan Haren deal last year because the best player in it was at Low A. Tyler Skaggs has turned into a really good prospect, but, most want success at a higher level before going, well, ape over them. (Mike Ferrin)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What letter grade would you give Jerry DiPoto's return for Dan Haren? Explain...
(SprungOnSports from Long Island)
Well ... he did get rid of some salary. He did get a guy who can start in the major leagues in return, and hopefully at least one decent prospect. And maybe he knows something about Haren we don't. As much as I'd like to give it an F, given how much more I think he could have gotten from other teams, I admit there's a lot I don't know about this so I can only give it a D. (Ken Funck)
