2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)How good would the Giants of the sixties have been if they had signed Roberto Clemente as they were within minutes of doing before Pirates scouts spirited him aeay?
(Dick Gozinya from Silicon Valley, CA)
Oh man, that'd have been insane. (Paul Sporer)
2012-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hello Dan, happy you're here chatting with us! It appears there are some teams who have stockpiled an impressive stable of minor league prospects. Some of these players will be exposed to the Rule 5 Draft in December. Can you tell us the mindset of putting some of these players on the 40 man roster and leaving others off? Also, I see many players are returned to their orginal team. What tought process goes into selecting a player who you think you can keep? Thanks for taking my question.
(IShouldaBeenLeftHanded from Los Angeles, CA)
Hey IShouldaBeenLeftHanded, I am left-handed! I'm enjoying the chat, hope that you are too. Really good question about the 40-man and the Rule 5 Draft. Over 75% of the players selected in the draft come back to their former club, and often that is the reason that teams leave players on a Triple A roster, as they realize the risk of being selected but figure the player will return. I left Shane Victorino on a Triple-A roster in 2002, but he had just started to switch-hit and we thought we'd get him back if selected and we did after the Padres took him. When you select a player you have to weigh whether he can stick with the club the entire season and not compromise your field staff too much with a 24-man roster, and also need to compare him to your existing guys. Roberto Clemente is the Rule 5 pick ever. (Dan Evans)
2012-03-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)What's the best team of Berts of all time? Rules: You can have anyone with a "bert" in his name -- Albert Pujols, Robin Roberts, David Robertson, Wilbert Robinson....
(Robert from DC)
Without spending too much time on this one, I'd go with these as my obvious picks:

1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Roberto Alomar
SS: Bert Campaneris
OF:Roberto Clemente
SP: Bert Blyleven
CP: Roberto Hernandez (R.J. Anderson)
2012-03-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)Top "bert" players by position (according to WARP): SP - Bert Blyleven, RP - Roberto Hernandez, C - Mike Lieberthal, 1B - Albert Pujols, 2B - Roberto Alomar, SS - Bert Campaneris, 3B - Alberto Callaspo, LF - Albert Belle, CF - Roberto Kelly, RF - Roberto Clemente, DH - Butch Alberts.
(bradleyankrom from TPAFLA)
Bradley Ankrom, folks. He does it all. Transactions browsers, prospects number-crunching, and All-Bert team stat queries. (R.J. Anderson)
2008-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Didn't Roberto Clemente get into the HOF without the 5 year wait?
(dills from Chicago)
Yes, but he had reached the 10-year minimum in terms of career length. Different set of circumstances than Joss. (Jay Jaffe)
