|2009-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Have you heard anything about Casey Janseen and his recovery from shoulder surgery? What are the chances the Jays get 20 combined starts out of he, Matt Clement and Matt Maroth?|
(Taylor from Toronto)
|No, we're at the stage of the season where pitchers are just beginning to throw and for guys like Janssen, no one's watching his rehab outside of the Jays staff. It's nearly impossible to follow these other than the "no news is good news" theory. 20 starts out of those? Just off top of my head, I'd say coinflip. I have *some* hope for Clement, especially in the short term, like a run of 8-10 decent starts. (Will Carroll)|
|2009-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)||How much longer do I have to wait for BP 2009?
Two quick questions:
1. How much chance do you see for Matt Clement's healthy return?
2. How much longer do you think we'll be waiting before FAs start grabbing jobs while they can? Rightly or wrongly, clubs are holding onto $ severely, and there are going to players left without chairs when the music stops playing (ST is only a month away).|

|I'm not involved with the book, but I'd assume it will be out at the normal time. I'm sure CK will update as necessary.
1. I'm very cautiously optimistic. Reasonable risk with upside, at least iin the short term.
2. Not long. Some guys will get desperate and there's really not that many left out there. I always thought Manny would be the last one to go, by design and it seems that Dunn is everyone's Plan B. (Will Carroll)
|2008-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)||AJ Burnett (5@82) or Matt Clement (1@subway tokens)? I've always thought Clement could be a very good strikeout pitcher. Back when the Jays first signed Burnett, I had considered them about equivalent. What chance would you give clement for being a competent MLB pitcher after 2+ seasons away from the bigs? And, of course - congrats - how ca I help in setting up a Feed in TO? Either before a Jays game or during the WBC.|
(rawagman from Toronto)
|I don't hate taking chances on guys like Clement when your team can afford it, has a Plan A (these guys should always be Plan B, a nice bonus if it works), and if you really commit to it. It's a real crapshoot with time away and his injuries, but if you see him and have reason to believe that he MIGHT come back, then you have to decide if your circumstances allow you to take the chance. I'd think Clement might be a bit more selective, but I haven't seen much evidence that players/agents look at medical staff as a signing criteria.
As always, I'll do a Pizza Feed anywhere. My only criteria is that I don't lose money on the deal. Last time I did one in Toronto, it was awesome. The guy sent me a plane ticket and organized everything. I paid for the hotel and showed up to do my thing. Same in Memphis, where I hope we can do another one. You do the groundwork, I'll show up and when possible, I'll bring someone with me. (Will Carroll)
|2005-03-21 19:30:00 (link to chat)||Is PECOTA (and everyone else) overrating Matt Clement???? I know he's got great stuff, but he's never been able to put together a top season in his entire career in the laid back Cubs environment. What makes everyone so sure he's going to be a top 5 starter in a new league, with a DH, in a big time hitters park, with more pressure on him than he's ever faced? He's replacing PEDRO MARTINEZ, right?? If Vazquez couldn't handle similar circumstances, shouldn't we be a bit more cautious in our optimism with Matt Clement?|
(tcfwine from Philly)
|I can't speak for anyone else, but PECOTA works by taking the three-year weighted average of a player's performance, sizing up his most comparable list, and sprinkling in some biographical data (age, height, weight) for seasoning. There's no representation of pressure situations or anything like that involved.
As far as Clement goes, if you look at his PECOTA card you'll see a projection that reflects the typical ERA bump expected from an NL to AL switch (AL inflates offense by a little less than half a run per game these days). A lot of Clement's value lies not only in his solid performance, but his durability--he's thrown 94 starts in the last three years. A good pitcher who takes the ball every fifth day is going to rank among the elite by virtually any measure, whether it's VORP or roto value. (Jonah Keri)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
