DateQuestionAnswer
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Need 3 keepers from the following… Carlos Ruiz $3, Nyjer Morgan $10, Johnny Cueto $12, Jorge Delarosa $9, Bud Norris $1, Jonathan Sanchez $10, Ubaldo $26. NL only, 12 teams $260 budget
(D Brown from Pittsburgh)
I say Ruiz, De La Rosa and Sanchez. Rob McQuown says Ruiz, Cueto and Sanchez. Cueto and DLR should both get good run support and have quality defenses behind them, though Colorado is obviously a potential problem. (Marc Normandin)
2010-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are you expecting out of Carlos Ruiz offensively in 2011?
(Bill Baer (Crashburn Alley) from Philly)
I'd guess .265/.350/.410. His great season last year was mostly BABIP fueled, but he definitely has hit the ball much better in 2009 and 2010 than he did in 2008. He's not going to hit many HR, he's not going to strike out a lot, and he's clearly established himself as about a 10-12% BB/PA, so projecting him comes to guessing his BABIP. I think .285 is about right, and I think that would give you something like the slash line I guessed. He's not the easy ground ball machine he was before, but he's not a big time gap hitter. (Matt Swartz)
2010-09-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Dusty Baker has stubbornly kept his lowest OBP guys at the top of the lineup. How many more runs would the Reds have scored with the Hannigan-Hernandez combo leading off and either Rolen or Bruce hitting second, with Phillips moving into the middle of the order and Cabrera in the eight- or nine-hole?
(Cambridge from Cambridge)
I'm not sure the effect here is as large as it may seem, and that is because I don't truly know how Hannigan or Hernandez would perform that far up in the order. It is easy to assume that players and their numbers are locked and that moving them around keeps everything in place, but I don't know that to be true. For instance, there were Phillies blogs calling for Carlos Ruiz to leadoff or bat second because of his OBP ~ .400, but he also walks alot because he bats in front of the pitcher. It is likely that Hannigan would net more runs in the leadoff spot than Cabrera, but I don't know if the difference is 5 or 15 runs, and given that they are making the playoffs anyway, the answer is likely immaterial anyway. (Eric Seidman)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)You're the Phils GM, and Atlanta offers you McCann and Jurrjens for Hamels, Carlos Ruiz, Dominic Brown, and Gillies. Pull the trigger?
(Chris from Atl)
Brown and Gillies in the equation probably tips it to no. Make it just Gillies and we could talk. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-10-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Roto question (sorry): keeper league, just dealt Rasmus/Andy LaRoche/Carlos Ruiz for Buster Posey/Gallado/Looper. Thoughts?
(Silv from NY, NY)
Stop playing with the local Girl Scout Troop. Ruiz and Looper cancel, and you're way ahead on the rest of it.

Don't ask me three questions at once. Thanks. (Not you, Silv.) (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)are the Phillies done? Part of me would like to see them go after V-Mart.... start him 60% of the time at catcher, and have him play first against tough lefties.
(Jeff from PA)
I think the Phillies are done because they also got the right-handed outfield bench bat they were looking for in Benny Francisco. They have a strong enough lineup to get by with Carlos Ruiz behind the plate and it wouldn't make sense to give up three more prospects for Martinez. (John Perrotto)
2008-10-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)I really did think Baldelli checked his swing (and I hate to cite Joe Morgan, but so did he)... Does the rulebook even define a swing in purely physical terms? Also, odds that someone from Fox tells Joe & Tim that Carlos Ruiz isn't from Venezuela before Game 3?
(Bill W from Brooklyn NY)
So far as I know there's no official definition. One hears "breaking the wrists" (not in the hired-goons-send-a-message sense) and bathead crossing the front of the plate as considerations, but it's apparently the discretion of the umpires.

I have zero faith that McCarver and Buck would even care if/when confronted with the truth about Ruiz. Certainly didn't come up last night and he was on base four times. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)"Sure, he may steal bases, but he's at a 61% success rate at Triple-A, and major league catchers are better at that game. " Are MLB catchers really better at throwing out runners? I understand your point, but maybe major league catchers get more leeway because they can hit (i.e. Piazza, LoDuca, etc.). Most backup players (i.e. Jose Molina, Carlos Ruiz) are usually the better defensive players who just don't hit well. Just a theory.
(Pat from Tufts)
That's a great question, Pat. I talked to Kevin Goldstein about it, and well, we're both unsure. It's not something you can determine with just SB/CS rates, because guys who are trying to learn the ins and outs of stealing are going to go all the time, even when it's not a good idea for them.

For this one scenario though, I'd think that stealing at a 61% rate in Triple-A when you're going often like McCutchen has is a bad thing if you're heading to the majors immediately after. Your question has me wondering about the bigger picture though, for sure. Thoughts, everyone else? (Marc Normandin)
2008-06-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Does the Phillies mini slide over the last 2 weeks change their approach to the trade market? There have been murmurs that Shane Victorino or Carlos Ruiz could be dealt off the major league roster in a big move. Any truth to that? Thanks.
(JM from MD)
I just don't see the Phillies making a big move. I've been wrong many times before but I think, their recent sturggles notwithstanding, that they feel they already have a club good enough to play in October. I see them making tweaks more than big moves. (John Perrotto)

2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day One"faithdies (DE): Carlos Ruiz: underrated, overrated or just right?"

He had the third-highest TAv of all catchers with 300+ PAs this year. I think he's regarded as somewhat worse than that. (Tommy Bennett)

Chooch = Carlos Ruiz's nickname
WPA = Win Percentage Added, measures the % chance of winning before and after at-bats and sums them up. (Matt Swartz)
