BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-10-06 19:30:00 (link to chat)Endy Chavez's catch will always be the greatest I ever saw considering the moment.
(oldbopper from New Britain, CT)
I was working in a bowling alley not far from you during that game and was just closing up. Had the game on the TV and ran the entire length of the building hooting and hollering after the catch. - JP (AL Wild Card Game Chat)
2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)Jordan, what's the best analogy to describe being a Mariners fan that you can come up with?
(Patrick from Seattle)
It could take several more decades of losing before we can properly identify an accurate analogy. There was something very surreal about watching a playoff contender bat Endy Chavez leadoff for over a month straight. (Cespedes Family BBQ)
2012-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, what are some of the most important spring battles yet to be decided, where the winner might be worth $5+ just for being a full-timer?
(Sky from The Roc, NY)
If the Orioles end up stealing PA's from Reimold to give to Endy Chavez simply because they want a leadoff guy while Roberts is out, there's one. Sean Rodriguez now will get a majority of the playing time early at shortstop with Brignac out with the foot issue and Rodriguez's struggles vs RHP should hold down his value enough at the draft table where he could go for $5-7 and then double that in season because he has the potential to go 20/15 (Jason Collette)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Endy Chavez going to get 400 abs this year?
(Abe Froman from Chicago)
I'll give him 300, but not 400. With Wilson Betemit signing in Baltimore this off-season, it seems more likely that Nolan Reimold gets a lot of the LF time, also spending some time at DH with Betemit and giving Endy some starts in LF on those days. If Chris Davis happens to crash and burn or get injured, it's possible Betemit plays first/third, Reimold DHs, and Endy plays close to full-time, though. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)does Endy Chavez have 30 sbs left in him?
(Bernie Fine from Syracuse)
Bernie, for shame...

Endy might steal 30 bags combined over the remainder of his MLB career, however long that may be, but it's hard to see a scenario where he gets that in a single season ever again. He hasn't had more than 12 in a year since 2004, y'know. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Reimold and Valencia for 2012?
(stewbies from Rochester, NY)
Rumor is Reimold could be the bad-half of a LF platoon with Endy Chavez, but the DH spot is open for the time being. If he plays, I like him and think he could be an AL-only value. Valencia is ok, but I don't really see him improving a whole lot this year. (Derek Carty)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ha! I showed you! Josh just got another owie and now I have a job, so nyah! I'll bet I keep the job over my stiffest competion, Endy Chavez. But wait...what about this Cuban guy Martin? Uh oh....
(Julio Borbon from Arlington)
A new challenger! Martin will start in the minors, but it might not be long before he's pushing Borbon. (Ben Lindbergh)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Alex Rios and now Juan Pierre? Who's advising the White Sox, Neel Kashkari?
(matuszek from Baltimore)
Chuck Tanner? Steve Boros? It's kooky, but then we're in a situation where we're debating the merits of Juan Pierre at $5 million plus versus a non-answer like Podzilla for under $2 million. Picking the former's the better answer if you start with the assumption neither's an offensive asset, since Podsednik's not a CF any more, but for that much? Why not check out Coco Crisp or Endy Chavez? (Christina Kahrl)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)In looking at the market for readily available corner bats, who should the M's be targeting for left field? They seem to prefer spending their cash on Figgins (done), a #2 starter (Lackey or a trade for Lowe?) and perhaps bringing back Beltre. What's a good option? They need some affordable pop behind their stellar 1-2.
(Derrth from Chicago)
Well, their apparent interest in Bay is one indication. I do think the Mariners recognize how critical a superior outfield defense was to their 2010, and would like to see a healthy Endy Chavez, or a skills clone, out in left field, with them getting increased offense from the infield corners. Nick Johnson would be a nice fit.

There are not that many good players in free agency this year. Teams are going to have to trade or hope for non-tenders to fill many of their holes. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Wieters homer barely got out -- Endy Chavez would've hauled it in, that's for sure.
(Jason from NY)
My love for Endy's glove knows no bounds. (Marc Normandin)
2009-04-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Just how good of a defensive outfield is Endy Chavez, Ichiro and Gutierrez? Is it better than the one the Mets fielded when they had Beltran, Chavez and Carlos Gomez at Shea?
(Mike from Queens)
Certainly seems as though it should be very good, but I have my doubts that trio can hit enough to survive a significant portion of the season intact. The Mets' version didn't last long either. That configuration only started about half a dozen games together according to the Baseball-Reference.com lineups info. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Senor: We just got internet in Venezuela and I finally read the terrible things you wrote about my boy Endy that everyone has been telling me about. My question is a two-parter: Why do you hate Endy Chavez, and do you think the $700 billion bailout will provide our failing economic system the support it needs to help us avoid a prolonged recession?
(Mrs. Chavez from Venezuela)
I can't escape that Endy Chavez profile...I love Endy! And that's in spite of what he can't do. As for the bailout, I'll answer it as if I was in a political debate, by answering another question you didn't ask! (Marc Normandin)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)Other than Ramon Castro and maybe Endy Chavez, has there been another player on the Mets' bench this year that would have a job on any other team? (As a player, not as a coach.)
(Amos from New York)
Oh, the Mets aren't nearly the only team to value experience that highly. I've no doubt that Anderson, with a rep as a pinch-hitter, would be employed.

Still handling some stuff. You'll have my full attention shortly. (Joe Sheehan)
