DateQuestionAnswer
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Do you ever get tired of writing about Mike Hampton in your UTK columns?
(Chris from Atlanta)
No. I should send him and Moises Alou a fruit basket. Moises Alou actually asked for a kickback a couple years ago. (Will Carroll)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)Realistically, taking Delgado and Castillo's contracts and the Mets unlikelihood to cut them into account, is there any personnel move (or moves)the Mets can make to improve their on the field production? I look at the roster and see so few tradeable parts.
(Kerri Mulqueen from Kew Gardens NY)
I wouldn't trade Fernando Martinez, so probably not. I guess you could see what the market is for Mike Pelfrey, who's a cheap midrotation starter for a few years, but I doubt you'd get much back. You could always sign Bonds, which would be a huge upgrade for the offense and a wash defensively with Alou. (People who complain about Bonds' defense and availability need to consider that Moises Alou is making $7 million this year.) (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Moises Alou is done? He just never stays healthy
(Brock D from Shakopee, MN)
More done than the last decade he's spent hitting and being injured? If a team can't figure a way to maximize him, they don't deserve to win. Look at what they did with him over the past couple years or what the Rays are doing with Cliff Floyd. (Will Carroll)
2008-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there a specific difference in Chipper Jones' game that has helped him stay relatively healthy the last year or so?
(Brock D from Shakopee, MN)
That's very relative ... so no. Chipper's well on his way to being Moises Alou and that's not an insult.

Hey, UTK is up! Go read it while I take this call. (Will Carroll)
2008-03-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)This year's Mets chapter says they won't have a big lead to blow. Still not redacting that, post-Johan? And will Chavez be their fourth outfielder who plays more than their third OF? Also, wish the book tour had made it to the Borough of Ebbets...
(BillW from Brooklyn NY)
I am not redacting that post-Santana (and I is the accurate pronoun here). The Mets don't have the depth to survive a bad cough - the players that they dealt, while far from being future greats, were their first level of replacements for guys like Moises Alou and El Duque and all the other cats you know will miss a third or more of the season. Now they have no one, and they have to pray that they have a 1927 Yankees season - IE they get through the year without having to make a single roster move. We know that doesn't happen.

"Okay... Anyone who doesn't appreciate team depth, get out!"

As for the tour, we've been to Brooklyn in the past and would be happy to go again, but we can only go where we're invited. If you want to see us anywhere in the universe that we're not already scheduled to go, head out to your local store, ask for the community relations rep, and demand your personal encounter with a BPer.
