DateQuestionAnswer
2015-02-13 19:00:00 (link to chat)Calhoun or Starlin Castro? Who's more productive over the next 3 years? I think Calhoun, but am I discounting Starlin's power and position?
(Vic from Baltimore)
I like Castro. He has been overrated for so long that now he's finally a little underrated. He compares favorably in OPS+ with Alan Trammel and Robin Yount at the same age. That isn't to say that Castro will become of these guys, but that there is more growth/upside than you'd think. Calhoun's all right, but I don't see a big spike coming with him. (Mike Gianella)
2011-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)You're stranded on a desert island somehow. You can have with you one fantasy novel, two MLB mascots' costumes, and one Harvey-Kuenn-era Milwaukee Brewer. What do you bring, why, and how long before the former Brewer decides to eat you?
(Bill_TPA from your mom's basement)
I know it's the obvious answer, but I have to take the Game of Thrones series (if only for it's 10,000+ pages or whatever it is). For mascots: let's take the retired Crazy Crab and Twinkie the Loon. They're just too odd not to be enjoyable on a desert island. Robin Yount is the Brewer, but only because I don't want Ted Simmons or Gorman Thomas to eat me right away. (Larry Granillo)
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you saddened as I am that the inclusion of Ozzie Smith seems to have helped Omar Vizquel when it could or should have helped Larkin and Trammell?
(Gregor from Bathurst)
Omar's not on the ballot, so we shouldn't worry about his candidacy for at least another six years. I don't think Ozzie's presence in the Hall has any bearing on Larkin and Trammell any more than the presences of Robin Yount and Cal Ripken do. There were a handful of great shortstops playing during the eighties, and some people apparently feel we've enshrined enough of them. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-10-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)It seems like there are no players on either team who are already good Hall of Fame candidates (though guys like Utley, Upton, etc. have time to qualify.) Can you ever remember a Series without such an established veteran star?
(oira61 from San Francisco)
Wow, that's a good question, one that pretty much ties into what I was saying a couple of days ago about how rare it is to get two fresh teams facing off in the series for the first time in awhile. Add to that the fact that both teams are dominated by younger guys whose best days may still be ahead of them and you wind up with a situation like this. I'm jogging my memory and looking back over the WS matchups and thinking that we've hit a real stumper. At the time, people wondered aloud if the 1998 Yankees would yield a Hall of Famer, but now it's apparent that Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter will make it if nobody else does, to say nothing of Tony Gwynn from the opposite dugout.

The 1982 matchup maybe - at the time it certainly wasn't apparent that Ozzie Smith, Robin Yount, Paul Molitor or Don Sutton would make it (Sutton would win 60-something more games in the majors), adn Rollie Fingers was sidelined too. Definitely a question to sock away for future pondering. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Isn't an 80s book only gonna bring back MORE nostalgia for the "beloved" 1982 Brewers? Can we please tell the people of Milwaukee that this isn't necessarily a GOOD thing, since it leads to things like Ned Yost as manager, Ted Simmons and/or Robin Yount as manager(s) in waiting, and the pleading for Paul Molitor to do anything with the club. /end vent.
(strupp from Madison)
I'm going to refer your question to resident Brewers aficionado Jay Jaffe, who will be handling Milwaukee duties on the book. Your question reminds me of the Washington Senators, where Clark Griffith tended to re-employ any player who used to work for him. (Steven Goldman)
2008-02-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)There was a saying about some ball players (like Brooks Robinson, if I recall)that they weren't fast going from home to first, but could outrun anyone going from 1st to 3rd or 2nd to home. In your studies, did you find any clear examples of guys not known to have good footspeed but who were exceptionally good baserunners?
(wileecoyote121 from larchmont, ny)
Robin Yount and Glenn Beckert come to mind. George Brett did really well on tagging on fly balls.

On Yount you might want to check this out. I think I discussed Beckert in this column. (Dan Fox)

2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesHad anyone noticed that Robin Yount came in to help the Brewers as bench coach? He was with Arizona a couple years back, I think with Brenly, but I honestly have no idea what he's been doing since. Anyone? (Will Carroll)
