DateQuestionAnswer
2011-02-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason Isringhausen is currently pitching for the Mets. How weird is that?
(mef from Brooklyn, NY)
For the record, I was at Jason Isringhausen's major league debut at Wrigley Field on 7/17/95. Sat near his family and it was a lot of fun. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)I don't get it, Tommy. I just don't get it. I can't wrap my head around how bloggers, writers and everybody deems that the Rays are the best 3rd place team in baseball and have to have luck, rather than just the talent on roster, to break the grasps of Boston/New York for the #1 or #2 spot in the division. Rays biggest downfall in 2009 was the lack of a "true closer" when Troy Percival went down and Jason Isringhausen forgot his arm wasn't what it used to be. JP Howell was serviceable but a sudden over-use seen him getting knocked around and getting shut-down by season's end. Even with a 11-game losing streak, which is a season-killer for any team, the team won 84 games. If the Rays won 6 or 7 of those games, they would've been a 90-win team. So what do the Rays do this offseason? They use the money that trading Kazmir and Iwamura netted them and dealt the prospect received in Iwamura's trade for a "true closer" in Rafael Soriano. That trade/signing moves every Rays reliever into the spot that they should be filling and would be most u
(jlarsen from Chicago)
Soriano probably adds a net of two wins or so. Assuming for sake of argument that the Rays were a 90 win (true talent) team last year, I think you can justify a 92 win estimate for them this year. But 92 wins doesn't win the AL East 99 times out of 100.

Beyond that, they just don't have the starting pitching of the Red Sox or Yankees. At every slot in the rotation they lose to both those teams. Maybe Hellickson can start consistently this year, maybe Davis is great right away. But for my money, I think those things aren't all likely to happen. In any other division in baseball, the Rays are the prohibitive favorites. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Were you alluding Jason Isringhausen??? You're predicting he's 1 week away from taking over for Percival? Just a hunch, a hope, or being funny?
(jaymoff from Salem, OR)
No, I think he could have the job that quickly. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the player that you think will have the biggest fall from grace (you've already used Ichiro)?
(grainyduck from Buffalo)
I could see Jason Isringhausen losing a lot of his value in a hurry. (Joe Sheehan)
