|2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Does Ugeth Urbina have any more bullets(for lack of a better term, no pun intended) left and do you see any teams holding tryouts for the old closer? Also, would he be able to get a work-visa now that he's released(being a convicted felon)?|
(jlarsen from chicago)
|I have no idea about the work visa. How old is Urbina anyway? [checks] He's only 38? How is that even possible? He was darned good in 2003. Then again, so were Eric Gagne and Tim Worrell. (Geoff Young)|
|2009-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Given Manny Acta's limited options, is he going to stick with Joel Hanrahan at closer after his awful start, or is he going to give a guy like Jason Bergmann a shot (a failed started with good stuff and health issues)?|
(Peeig13 from The Second City)
|This is my darkhorse for the Nationals' closer: Kip Wells. His results have never matched his stuff as a closer and a lot of times many pitchers who fit that profile wind up being good closers for a time. Eric Gagne is a prime example. (John Perrotto)|
|2009-02-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)||In the Mitchell report, Eric Gagne's entry still bugs me. It included the results an informal background check done by the Red Sox front office. Given that front offices were fully complying with the investigation - shouldn't we seen a lot more comments from front offices? |
(goiter6 from MN)
|Perhaps. I'll use this question as a jumping-off point for what I hope will be my only steroid comment of the day: Alex Rodriguez has been called to the commissioner's office to discuss his steroid use. (I'm trying to get away from the term "performance-enhanching drugs," since I think it's a loaded phrase in which two words are out of place in a baseball context.) MLB has had the 2003 list since 2004. If they want to ask players on it about their steroid use, why have they waited until one has been outed? Why not ask them all, privately? If Alex Rodriguez can be summoned, why can't the other 103? Or at least interviewed out of the public eye? Or is only information from stars valuable? (Joe Sheehan)|
|2008-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Hiya Jay .... thanks for chatting ...
If Ned Yost had a clue about managing a pitching staff, and didn't care so much about no-hitters, the Brew Crew might have a chance to go deep into October.
Do you concur?|
(dianagramr from NYC)
|It's not a chat until Diana shows up! Glad you could make it, as always.
I think Yost got a bit too carried away over Scorer-gate, but he's just standing up for his players and trying to take the pressure off them. I'm not crazy about the way he manages his bullpen, particularly with regards to his obsession for spot lefty matchups, and I wish he'd just lose Eric Gagne's phone number, but I don't have a problem with the way he's handled his rotation, particularly the two big guns. At this point, given what we know about the economics of making the postseason (Nate Silver's finding of a 10-year revenue bump for such teams, as noted in his chapter in Baseball Between the Numbers), I think it's far more important for the Brew Crew to simply make it to October and lift that 26-year-old monkey off their backs than it is to win the whole thing.
Not that I wouldn't love to see the latter. My wife and in-laws would go nuts. (Jay Jaffe)
|2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)||I'm frustrated by the lack of prospects available for a Bay, Nady or Marte! What happened to the 3 good prospects for a middling reliever scenario (see Gagne, Eric; 2007) from only 1 year ago?|
(Frank from Vegas via Pittsburgh)
|I don't think teams hold Nady and Marte in the same regard as Eric Gagne. Bottom line, Nady is an average player having a good and Marte is a situational lefty on a really good team. I think sometimes Pirates fans tend to overrate their own players in context to the rest of the league. (John Perrotto)|
|2008-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)||I am an unfortunate owner of Matt Capps (and Eric Gagne-ouch). I was lucky enough to pick up Damaso Marte before the rest of the vultures in my league plucked him up. Is he the front runner to get the nod in Capps' absence? Also, what can we expect from Josh Johnson in the second half of the year?|
(Brent from Scottsdale)
|I'd expect nothing from Johnson - even when a pitcher comes back from TJS, there's usually a lag in his command, and that's especially true when a guy comes back earlier than expected. If you have ample room on your reserve, sure, roster him, but don't activate him until he gets a few starts in to see what's going to happen.
Marte - yes, frontrunner, but don't be surprised if there's some sort of committee at work with Yates, because Marte is a lefty. (Jeff Erickson)
|2008-02-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Eric Gagne over/under 35 saves|
(erbacaine from Milwaukee)
|Under, and I'll take out a loan to make that bet. (Joe Sheehan)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
