2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who has your favourite name to say? Who has your favourite other people say? Past present or future!
(otirol from Southern Ontario)
Currently it's Arismendy Alcántara, all time is a toughie, but:
Eugenio Velez
Placido Polanco
Vladimir Guerrero
Raimel Tapia
Runelvys Hernandez


are a few of my all time favorites. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a cubs fan and im really starting to get worried about castro's future. Do you think he can ever get more selective in order to hit for more power?? or was he just not born with it
(DonKeji from chicago)
I still think Vladimir Guerrero is always going to be THE exception to this question, but it's not like his teammate Alfonso Soriano was ever super-selective and he's been a terrific power hitter even as power in the game has decreased. So there is a chance to develop power without talking walks; I'm just not convinced Castro has that kind of swing. (Zachary Levine)
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.

2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Rymer Liriano kind of like Vladimir Guerrero with Mike Trout speed and Jeff Francouer's arm?
(matt from LA)
Yeah, kind of like that. Also, I'm kind of like Tom Verducci. (Jason Parks)
2012-03-14 13:30:00 (link to chat)Will Vladimir Guerrero ever play again?
(Alpha from Toronto)
The odds are against it, but I hope so. I'll miss him when he's gone. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Got your picks for best and worst signings of the offseason handy?
(enosarris from Teaneck)
I don't, but let's live dangerously!

Best: Vladimir Guerrero
Worst: Randy Wolf (Tommy Bennett)
2009-12-29 15:00:00 (link to chat)How about the flip side to Klaus's question - which player that currently looks like a sure-thing HOFer has a high probability of flaming out and is overrated come enshrinement time?
(Tex Premium Lager from NJ)
Vladimir Guerrero. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)How does someone like Robison Cano, who takes such few walks, and who has such mediocre speed, manage to hit .320 with 25 home runs? To put it in perspective, he walks half as much as even Vladimir Guerrero did at the same age.
(Christopher from Nashville)
The secret to batting average is a good line drive rate, and despite his lack of selectivity, when Cano is on his game he's very good at getting a pitch and hitting it hard somewhere. When he's off his game he not only swings at everything but pulls off the ball so it heads weakly for shortstop on the ground or short left field in the air.

...Bunt Punto now? (Steven Goldman)
2009-06-03 15:00:00 (link to chat)Not a team related question, but one regarding individual players. How do you see these players ranking over the next five years: Lance Berkman, Vladimir Guerrero, Alfonso Soriano, Carlos Lee, Manny Ramirez. Thanks.
(Krams706 from Boston)
Wow, you named four 33-year-olds and a 37-year-old, and you want to know what their next five years look like? Sell now, because they're not going to be getting better, and in many cases -- I'm thinking Vlad and Lee, particularly -- I think the decline will be precipitous due to injuries and conditioning. If I had to pick one to own five years from now it would probably be Soriano because of his body type. PECOTA appears to agree, though it also puts in a good word for Berkman. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)how does guerrero hold up this year? is last year's struggle to maintain elite level signal the end?
(Dr. Zaius from VA)
Vladimir Guerrero had his knees cleaned out over the winter, but I'm told he's not running at 100% yet. He's always been an awkward looking runner, but that's never clearly been a bad thing. I think age is catching up with him, like all of us, and don't see him fighting off the effects. (Will Carroll)
2008-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)"I really like Matt Kemp. He's got a 15% shot of being Vladimir Guerrero." Joe Sheehan, June 20th chat. Seriously? Vlad is a big name to drop.
(David from Sonoma State University, CA)
It's a huge name to drop, but what's Joe really saying here? He's saying that chances are 17 out of 20 that he will NOT turn into that. I don't think it's out of bounds at all.

Quick tip. Questions that might have some value to others catch my eye MUCH MUCH more than quesitons like "Rank these 34 players" followed by a list of players. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)Better lifetime keeper for next year and beyond (points based league)...Alex Rios, Matt kemp or Mad Max Scherzer Thanks
(Mike from Westbury, N.Y.)
Matt Kemp, then Scherzer, then Rios. I really like Matt Kemp. He's got a 15% shot of being Vladimir Guerrero. (Joe Sheehan)
2005-03-21 19:30:00 (link to chat)As an ex-Expos fan (by definition there can be no other kind) I looked at the National's roster and see a horror show. The rose coloured glasses have come off. Vidro plays old and is broken. Wilkerson's a very good player but impossible to imagine as an elite player. Livan was a joy to watch, the full package, pitching, hitting, fielding, but is a tier 2 ace. Are there any positives going on as far as on field play is concerned for the team? I, for one, certainly hope not.
(bobbailey from montreal)
Bob,

The Vidro contract, when it was signed, engendered lots of enthusiasm among Expos fans, as it appeared management was now committing to signing its best players long-term. Of course the one that really mattered got away, and things went downhill from there (not that they were skipping stones by Beaver Lake before Vlad's departure).

Livan in my mind is underrated. He isn't going to put up monster numbers, but give me a mid-to-high 3s ERA and 230+ innings a year, and I'll show you a guy whose contributions come just a hair shy of the elite, even if he seems a Tier 2 on first glance. Your take on Wilkerson sounds about right, though I could see him becoming Berkman Jr. with a breakout year.

The problems lie in years of frnachise neglect, with the draft becoming an afterthought due to depleted staff and depleted resources. Signing Cristian Guzman and Vinny Castilla is only going to make the team ugly in addiiton to being bad. If you're a jilted Expos fan who big on schadenfreude, this is the team for you. (Jonah Keri)
