DateQuestionAnswer
2008-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Back to the catchers note for a bit, looking just anecdotely, it does seem to be that the best defensive starting catchers in the big leagues (i.e. Brian Schneider, Pudge, Yadier Malina) tend to be weak hitters who would be in AAA if their defense wasn't so outstanding. But conversely, there are some players who are just medicore to good in terms of hitting (i.e. Matt LeCroy, Ramon Castro), but get much more playing time because they can hit some. Maybe 4A catchers work more on their defense because they know it is more likely that with their limited offensive capabilities that they can be a backup in the big leagues than turn into some power machine and start.
(Pat from Tufts/MetsGeek)
Oh, you didn't tell me it was Mets Geek Pat. There's no need to hide your work area here :-)

Peter Bendix and I were just discussing this over e-mail too. I think it's something we should all take a deep look at outside of the chat sometime. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Mets have got to be kidding me that they're going into the season with this rotation, right? Or are they planning to exhume Terry Leach's corpse to round out the staff?
(ElAngelo from Brooklyn, NY)
I was expecting a Bruce Berenyi sighting, actually. It's definitely a pretty dodgy unit, because I don't think anybody should take the '07 seasons of Maine and Oliver Perez as proof that they'll be just fine going forward. That's why I think they need to be taken seriously in the Johan sweepstakes, although it would be pretty amusing if they wound up one Milledge short of being able to swing the deal, just because Omar Minaya was obsessed over the marginal differences between Brian Schneider and Johnny Estrada.
