2013-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)This deal just went down in our 12 team mixed keeper league. Team 1 is the commishiner, team 2 a new team. Team 1 Josh Johnson and Ian Kinsler Team 2 David Price, Jorge De La Rosa and Matt Carpenter Fair?
(Dave from Miami)
Not a fantasy guy, but I'm not outraged by either side. Please ask again in one of our fantasy chats, though.

By the way, on things I actually do write, a quick plug for today's article on my favorite names discovered on the rosters of the independent Atlantic League. Ian Snell, Hayden Penn, Vladimir Guerrero, Adam Greenberg and many more.

2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Typing this lefty (but not as well as Clif Lee!) -- Do you see the Mariners going after Jorge De La Rosa this offseason, they need another good pitcher even with the putrid offense.
(broken wrist from right arm)
Man, I did a similar thing when I was 16, broke my left thumb playing baseball and had a cast on up to my elbow for forever. There was one upside, which is that I got very good at unsnapping bras with one hand, a skill that has not deserted me to this day. Is that TMI? As for the Mariners, you can't fix their problems with one hand, or two hands and a shovel. I've always liked de la Rosa, but I'm not sure that his wildness will play real well in the DH league. The M's could be signing on for Daisuke Matsuzaka-West, and in any case until they fix their historically-miserable offense, I'm not sure that any pitcher can help them. They have a long, long road ahead. (Steven Goldman)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you do if you are Doug Melvin??? Fielder isn't going to bring back much, but you are still 1 guy short in that Rotation with Wolf and Gallardo...Who do you sign, outside of Lee who will probably headed to the Yankees?
(JT from MKE)
I think you have to invest in at least one of the upside risk kids--Harden or Vazquez and the like--and Jorge De La Rosa as well. Because speaking of defense-minded choices, while I think getting Rickie Weeks off second base would be a favor this or any pitching staff would appreciate, you may as well adapt to that awful right-side infield defense by gunning for strikeout guys in the rotation. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Let's assume for arguments sake that O'Down lets Marquis walk, trades Hawpe for a prospect and non tenders Atkins. That would free up nearly $20MM for 2010. Where would you spend that money? I guess 2B is an obvious upgrade spot, but beyond that, I'm not sure O'Dowd could spend that amount money effectively in free agency. Maybe they could allocate it to the draft and Venezuala?
(Dan from Denver)
It's never that simple. Betancourt's on the books for next season if they pick up his option, so that's a big chunk of change ($5+ million). Huston Street's arb-eligible, so is Jorge De La Rosa and Chris Iannetta and Ryan Spilborghs; all will get raises. Tulo's salary goes up a couple of million; so does Jeff Francis' and Manny Corpas'. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't go big-game hunting, beyond seeing what they might get out of a Hawpe deal, whether win-now help or a prospect with near-term value on the big-league team. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)But don't you want a home-heavy second half? I know it might chew up your arms a bit, but home field advantage is still pretty huge, innit?
(Ari Collins from Boston)
Traditionally, yes, but winning at home hasn't been a stumbling block to Rockies' success. So much of their early success this season is from their having gotten extraordinary work out of Jason Marquis and Jason Hammel; Hammel's lost steam, but Jorge De La Rosa's rattled off six straight quality starts (getting back up off the floor typing that), and Marquis has a six-pack of his own in his last half-dozen starts. If Marquis doesn't wilt, not only will he have people wondering if putting him in the ASG wasn't earned after all, it'll put the Rockies into October. (Christina Kahrl)
