DateQuestionAnswer
2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Twins have the worst starting rotation in the AL?
(richardkr34 from Saint Paul, MN)
Man, maybe. It's bad. Dig up my Transaction Analysis on the Kevin Correia signing if you want to know what I think about that. (Spoiler: I didn't like it.) I might be writing about the Twins' pitching this week. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hopefully now that the Padres Pitching Plague is behind them, I feel a solid starter is a pressing need for the Padres. When Luebke returns back from the dead we should have Volquez, Luebke, Stultz, Richard, [body]. Whom do you think the Padres should throw in there? Personally, and I know this is a pipe dream, but I'm liking James Shields.
(Brandon from San Diego)
Hi Brandon, thanks for the question. I like Shields, too, but we're gonna need a bigger pipe. The tricky thing with the fences moving is that they can't just go get some random Kevin Correia type and hope it works. Clayton Richard led the NL in homers allowed last year despite calling Petco Park home. Some of the guys I mentioned above as being candidates for the Cardinals might be good fits in San Diego as well. Edwin Jackson wouldn't be a bad idea, but do the Padres have what it takes to sign him? I don't know. (Geoff Young)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you fall on the fence debate concerning Petco Park and do you think the Padres have done an adequate job in utilizing the park's spaciousness as an advantage?
(Venzor from North Park)
You could say I'm [removes shades] on the fence. But seriously, I think the team should be extremely careful in modifying the dimensions. The law of unintended consequences can be a cruel mistress. As for utilizing the park to their advantage, the Padres have been hit or miss. Having athletic outfielders like Maybin and Venable is good. Right-handed power hitters are useful if they aren't Ryan Ludwick. And the team has done a good job bringing in pitchers (Kevin Correia, Jon Garland, Aaron Harang) who look better than they are thanks to the park. Volquez could be another one of those. (Geoff Young)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chen, Francis, and Hochevar are the AL version of Hamels, Lee, and Halladay right? Just kidding... Can Francis and Hochevar combine for 22 wins and a sub 4.5 ERA though? Can anything good come from the Royals rotation?
(Nelly from Kansas)
Yes to the wins, but I don't think they will so far below a 4.5 combined ERA that it's worth celebrating. I thought it was very odd for Royals fans to mock the Pirates for signing Kevin Correia, when he would have been their second-best starter after Greinke left. (Marc Normandin)
2010-12-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Gorzelanny should have decent value to a small-mid mkt team at his price point, shouldn't he? That seems to be one decent chip the Cubs have.
(Matt from Chicago)
A team like the Pirates could use Gorzelanny, since he can actually miss bats and isn't too expensive. They really should see about getting him back if they can. Kevin Correia is their second-best pitcher after they signed him yesterday. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Does pitching in this cavernous space give our boys on the bump more confidence?
(Dan from PETCO)
Who cares!? I mean, if it can't be quantified, it doesn't mean anything! Kidding of course. I think it definitely helps their confidence, but confidence can only take you so far. Kevin Correia might be really confident but it doesn't mean the opposition pees their pants when he takes the mound. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tea! If you were a Padre fan, who went into this season expecting that the games wouldn't matter except in a development sense, only to find your team in first place and with peripherals to support it, what possible calamity would you fear MOST right now? Latos going sproing? Tejada playing everyday at shortstop, with hitters deliberately punching the ball his way? Kevin Correia staying in the rotation?
(Douglas Adams from Restaurant at the End of the Universe)
Man, if the Padres make it deeply into the playoffs, this would be one of the most amazing stories in baseball history. They came out of nowhere. They have little but pitching to offer. Yes, Tejada-the-shortstop scares me. The Padres lead the NL in defensive efficiency, and since they're not going to put too many runs on the boards, they really need every out they can get. I don't think that Tejada's bat at this stage of his career makes up for the sacrifice you're making with the glove. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Some love for KT and his young guys in San Diego? You saw them at 60 wins this year.
(JC from Hoboken)
Yeah, they've played better than I expected them to. They play the park well, finding relief pitchers who can be effective there. Chase Headley has started to come around, and Everth Cabrera isn't that bad. I'm just wondering how many guys responsible for the decent season are good enough to contribute to a real contender. Is Will Venable or Kevin Correia someone you build around? I doubt it. (Joe Sheehan)
