BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ryan Spilborghs has a .327 OBP in Japan. The MLB league average is .317. Cauliflower hurting when I dump the trash - Ghostface Killah. Couldn't a team like the Royals use the Spillygoat?
(Rafiki from DaBreeze)
I don't know how a .327 on-base percentage in Japan would translate to the majors nowadays (probably not well enough to feel great about it), but Kansas City is not the spot for Spilborghs given Justin Maxwell. (R.J. Anderson Trade Deadline Wrap Chat)
2012-03-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who should win the Indians LF carousel? Who has the best chance to stick?
(SaberTJ from Cleveland, OH)
My unofficial survey of who is fighting for the job: Shelley Duncan, Aaron Cunningham, Ryan Spilborghs, Felix Pie, Fred Lewis, and Russ Canzler.

I cannot envision Canzler playing a tolerable corner outfield, so I'll say not him. Same result with Pie for different reasons. From there, you have Lewis and three righty bats, but Duncan and Cunningham are both out of options. So I guess the Indians might keep those two and store Lewis and Spilborghs in Triple-A for depth. I might opt for a platoon between Lewis and whichever of the two righties you're higher on. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Grady Sizemore? If he ends up hurt again by the end of spring training, is Ezequiel Carrera a fantasy asset?
(LoyalRoyal from Doin' Time in Leavenworth)
He's just so risky. Unless you get him late in a draft, I wouldn't bother. I don't see him ever staying healthy for a full year. Carrera could very well be a fantasy asset, especially with his speed, although the Indians do have other options. They could put Brantley in CF again and put a guy like Shelly Duncan in LF (though I don't think Brantley is a good CF). They have Ryan Spilborghs and Aaron Cunningham too, but I think Carrera has the inside track on those two. The interesting thing with him is how often they batted him leadoff when he was filling in last season. (Derek Carty)
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Predictions for Colorado OF PT?
(Jim Lahey from Sunnyvale)
Dexter Fowler doesn't lose that much playing time to CarGo, and Ryan Spilborghs keeps getting the short straw. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Let's assume for arguments sake that O'Down lets Marquis walk, trades Hawpe for a prospect and non tenders Atkins. That would free up nearly $20MM for 2010. Where would you spend that money? I guess 2B is an obvious upgrade spot, but beyond that, I'm not sure O'Dowd could spend that amount money effectively in free agency. Maybe they could allocate it to the draft and Venezuala?
(Dan from Denver)
It's never that simple. Betancourt's on the books for next season if they pick up his option, so that's a big chunk of change ($5+ million). Huston Street's arb-eligible, so is Jorge De La Rosa and Chris Iannetta and Ryan Spilborghs; all will get raises. Tulo's salary goes up a couple of million; so does Jeff Francis' and Manny Corpas'. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't go big-game hunting, beyond seeing what they might get out of a Hawpe deal, whether win-now help or a prospect with near-term value on the big-league team. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)In your analysis of the Phillies/Rockies series, you mentioned how the Phils Offense was not well suited to hit against the Rockies D. But how about the opposite match-up? The Rockies only played .500 ball against lefties this year and the Phils can throw three lefties at them (four games, maybe five depending on the schedule). Isn't this an advantage for Philly? Also, can you do anything about the annoying Outback commercial that keeps covering up the screen?
(jschmeagol from college park, md)
No, I can't, but I've complained about it myself. It's absurd.

I felt the two teams' rotations were fairly even, which may have been overrating Ubaldo Jimenez against this particular lineup. I also didn't think Jim Tracy would play Brad Hawpe over Ryan Spilborghs. Not that that was the only factor, but man, can you leave Spilborghs and Chris Iannetta on your bench if you're serious about beating a lefty?

Anyway, with the Rockies having lost the Jimenez start and not having de la Rosa, their situation isn't that great. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-01-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you see Ryan Spilborghs pull a Jayson Werth this yr if he gets 500 AB's?
(MannysBBQ from Pittsburgh)
Eh, that seems kind of high. I think he can be solid though, probably better than we give him credit for because of Coors. But his OBP more so than his power would be his source of value, at least when not above sea level. (Marc Normandin)
