DateQuestionAnswer
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)What does Chase Headley's line look like next year?
(Gob from A magic convention)
Hi Gob. If one player embodied "youneverknow" last year, it was Headley. Just when I'd assumed he was headed down the Dave Magadan path of high OBP and no power, he went out and hit 31 homers. He's the right age and his home park is about to become less pitcher-friendly. This is a WAG, but I'd say .280/.370/.460 as a baseline. (Geoff Young)
2010-02-16 16:00:00 (link to chat)In a recent chat, you said third base coaches being too conservative in sending runners was an example of making decisions to avoid criticism at the expense of maximizing results. What other examples come to mind for you?
(BallparkFan from Colorado)
Managers refuse to bring their closers in unless it's a save situation. Teams keep horridly bad lefties in the pen just to say that they have one. Managers put low OBP guys in the leadoff spot and say "but he's fast!" and everyone expects that a leadoff hitter should be fast and either a CF, 2B, or SS. Why not try the third baseman who can't run but still sprays the ball all over the field? Dave Magadan? Anyone? (Russell A. Carleton)
