DateQuestionAnswer
2015-10-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)To follow up on the Ventura question. Who is Managing a Major Leaugue team right now that shouldn't be?
(Joshua from Chicago)
Fredi Gonzalez, Ventura, Bryan Price, Walt Weiss, Brad Ausmus, Paul Molitor, Craig Counsell, Mike Matheny. (Matthew Trueblood)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat today. After a poor showing last year is there hope for some value in Devin Mesoraco this season? Also do the Rockies still plan on that horrible idea of limiting starters to 75 pitches?
(Tommy from Flowmont)
You're welcome, thank you for joining! Catching prospects are poor fantasy investments. Even the can't-missiest of can't misses Matt Wieters has been underwhelming from a fantasy perspective. There is so much to their development that isn't related to hitting that they often take a while to fully develop. There are exceptions like Wilin Rosario but that's because he plays in Coors and doesn't actually know how to catch. The rule is that prospect catchers aren't worth it *cough* D'Arnaud *cough*. Re: the Rockies, I'm not sure. Walt Weiss is a complete unknown at this point. If so, it really limits any upside guys like Chacin, de la Rosa or Nicasio might have. (Paul Sporer)
2010-06-07 18:30:00 (link to chat)Will the 2005 draft ever be topped??? It was topped before it ever happened, in 1985. I just wrote this for tomorrow morning's draft piece: . The first round included, in order of selection, B.J. Surhoff, Will Clark, Bobby Witt, Barry Larkin, Barry Bonds, Pete Incaviglia, Walt Weiss, Brian McRae, Joe Magrane, Gregg Jeffries, Rafael Palmeiro, and Joey Cora, as well as Cameron Drew, who put up outstanding numbers in the minors until a knee injury ended his career at 24, while the second round held Bruce Ruffin, Mike Schooler, and Randy Johnson (John Smoltz was hiding down in round 22). And Bo Jackson too (a flyer in rd 20)!
(PBSteve from Beautiful New Jersey)
See? Steven Goldman knows all. (Kevin Goldstein)
