2012-09-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, Dan. Please regale us with an anecdote about the Dodger prospect who most-pleasantly surprised you during your tenure. Thanks!
(Cord Bird from Hollywood)
Hello, Cord Bird from Hollywood, and thanks for the question. You're likely not doing much during this weekend's Carmageddon. My favorite one was a call from current Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell, who I had known for a few years and brought into the Dodger organization when I was hired. He was at our South Georgia affiliate and called me in mid-May one year and said that the transition of outfielder Edwin Jackson was going way better than expected, and said that he would be a really good big league pitcher quickly. I had seen Edwin in the spring and liked his athleticism, but it all came together so quickly. It was great to have someone with such a good feel for the big league game to make that call and let me know. Roger has turned out to be a great pitching coach, and I am thrilled for him. (Dan Evans)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)What are you drinking? Aroyds Vizacaino . . . special talent, yes?
(Dianagram from Scrabble Central)
I'm drinking a Dasani lemon flavored water that was leftover from our draft room. It's not ideal, but it was free and it's got 0 calories.

Vizcaino is a special talent. I did an interview with the amazing Kevin Goldstein a few years back where we talked about Vizcaino as a latter-day version of Neftali Feliz. Both have effortless arm actions as well as swing-and-miss off speed stuff. The amazing thing about Vizcaino, at age 20, is how he has adapted to pitching in big situations during a pennant race at the ML level. Credit for that obviously should go to the player, but also to our entire staff from Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell to the pitching coaches in the minor leagues to guys like Johnny Almaraz who remained close with the player and pushed him to achieve success. Like pretty much everything here it's not one person -- or even a few -- responsible for success. (John Coppolella)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)As long as we're talking ROY candidates, when do you think the Braves should start limiting Jair Jurrjen's innings? He's about 30 away from his number last year, and I'm concerned that if nothing changes, he may eclipse the mark by as many as 50 innings.
(Matt A from Raleigh)
I don't think they can while they're in contention, but they have to figure something out. Here's a situation where I'd dial him back a bit now, maybe say "you're going 80 pitches" and shadow him with someone. Problem is ... who? Rock and a hard place here, so it will be a real test for the Braves, esp Roger McDowell. (Will Carroll)
