DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)What team is the worst at developing pitchers? The Indians system has a lot of hype, but the pitchers they have taken in the top 90 since 2002 have combined for only 3.2 WAR in an Indians uniform (excluding the 6.1 WAR they got from trading Pomeranz/White for Ubaldo). The list is depressing: Jeremy Guthrie, Brian Solcum, Adam Miller, Jeremy Sowers, Justin Hoyman, Scott Lewis, David Huff, Steven Wright (traded for Lars Anderson), Trey Haley, Alex White, Drew Pomeranz, Dillon Howard, Mitch Brown, Dace Kime...are you as depressed as I am yet? No? How about the fact only Sowers and Huff had at least 1 career WAR for the Indians, making them probably the 2nd or 3rd best in a group of 14 picks.
(Truganini from CO)
I wouldn't say there are specific teams that you know are bad at developing pitchers but there are some concerns. Seeems like Baltimore has had some recent bad luck with Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey, and Kevin Gausman just to name a few. Obviously Colorado has had its own troubles with Tyler Anderson, Tyler Matzek, Mike Nikorak (at least right now), Drew Pomeranz, Christian Friedrich, and Peter Tago. -SG (Live Draft Chat)
2014-10-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think the rotation will be opening day next year for the Royals?
(Alex from Madison, WI)
Jason Vargas, Danny Duffy, Yordano Ventura, Jeremy Guthrie and Johnny Free Agent. (Andy McCullough)
2013-04-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)20 team league, 4 x 4, no K's. Should I cut Lackey for one of Tepesch, Bedard, Wood or Guthrie, or go with the dead spot for a week or two? Or cut Gentry or Pollock for one of the SP's and go with a dead hitting spot?
(stewbies from Rochester, NY)
Hey stewbies

I'd drop John Lackey and go with either Jeremy Guthrie or Travis Wood. I don't know what the rest of your team looks like and without knowing that I can't say whether or not it's a good idea or not to go with a dead hitting spot. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of year do you think Jeremy Guthrie will have ? Kind of teased us Royal fans at the end of last year.
(Craigster from KC)
I like Guthrie. Colorado was clearly a bad fit, and while those numbers he put up for KC won't be there again, he is pitching in a positive environment for a fly ball pitcher for the first time in his career. A 3.85 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP with about 120-130 Ks are what I expect. (Mike Gianella)
2012-12-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Lindbergh and miller talked about their favorite/least favorites moves on the podcast the other day. Your favorite/least favorite offseason move?
(Roberto from jury duty (fml))
Glad I could make jury duty go by a little faster, Roberto - and I've got my own appearance to look forward to not long from now.

If we count extensions, I wasn't a fan of the Brandon League move for the Dodgers; if we limit this to free-agent signings, relative to some of the deals handed out since, the three-year, $25 million hitch the Royals gave Jeremy Guthrie seems a little out of place. Specifically, I liked the one-year, $6 million deal for Scott Feldman and the two-year, $15.5 million deal for Brandon McCarthy. And from a bullpen standpoint, one year and $4.25 million for Koji Uehara looks good.

To just choose two, I'll take League and Feldman. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which single position does Houston still most lack both depth and top-shelf talent at in their farm system?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Starting pitching. Because of the attrition attached to pitching, you want your system littered with power arms, mix in some left-handers, perhaps even a few with top-of-the-rotation upside and high probability strike throwers with a chance to be Scott Baker or Jeremy Guthrie are nice to have, too. Starters are so expensive, you truly cannot have too many. The systems with the most top pitching prospects are generally the most underrated. The Blue Jays are proving why that is this winter. They dealt Alvarez and Nicolino and still have six or eight really strong SP prospects. Watch out for Roberto Osuna, by the way. Ridiculous arsenal and raw stuff with 45 command already and he's still a teenager. That's what Houston needs, and Luhnow and company are off to a good, solid start. (Jason A. Churchill)
2012-10-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Performance-wise, the best starter acquired pre-deadline this year was Jeremy Guthrie.
(Chris from lunch)
Good point. That looked like a sound deal for Kansas City at the time. I'd be surprised if they don't bring Guthrie back for another year. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-10-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)3 fairly valuable SPs got dealt at the trading deadline with Dempster, Greinke and Sanchez. Who got the best return for their former team?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Obviously, Jeremy Guthrie was the best starter dealt at the deadline, so I'll give the Royals the best return for getting him for Jonathan Sanchez. Among these lesser lights, though--probably Greinke, which is what you'd expect, given that he's, you know, Zack Greinke. (Ben Lindbergh)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Padres seem interested in Reed Johnson, and I can't for the life of me figure out why. It seems to me that they should be making serious inquiries on Felix Pie. Would a guy like Correia - just resigned to a reasonable deal for a fourth starter - be enough to get Pie? Too much?
(dcoonce from bloomington indiana)
Pie would be cool, but the last thing the Orioles need is a veteran fourth starter. They already have Jeremy Guthrie, and he might be squeezed out of that rotation by 2011. Reed Johnson's sort of like baseball's answer to apple pie: everybody's supposed to love him. It doesn't matter if you prefer key lime or I preferred pecan (when I could eat pie), everyone's supposed to like the scrappy white guy whose speed is a function of how much sox he shows. No, I don't get it either. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)There are talks between the O's and Rangers for Millwood. I wouldn't care if the O's gave up Chris Ray and a minor leaguer. But to dip into their talent pool for 35 year old would be asinine. Wouldn't they be better off signing a Jon Garland-type (if that's the type of pitcher they're looking for)? I just don't see the point of this trade. Maybe you could shine some light on it.
(MarkakisFan from Baltimore)
Millwood is better than the field, and the Orioles have enough depth that they can dip into it to make this deal. Frankly, they should eat all the salary if it means giving up less in the way of prospects. I'm not sure they need another innings guy--Jeremy Guthrie is supposed to be that guy, I thought--but it doesn't hurt to have a 33-start, 200-inning guy in the fold when you're bringing young pitchers along. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the Orioles chances this year, with the addition of Uehara and Pie?
(murber74 from Gaithersburg, MD)
I like both acquisitions. The Orioles need starting pitchers, because the cattle call behind Jeremy Guthrie doesn't engender very much confidence that this team can finish ahead of Norfolk, and because Uehara seems to be the cream of this year's Japanese import crop. As for Pie, I applaud the team's decision to acquire a player with legitimate upside instead of going the Jay Payton route -- the functional equivalent of taking the Barney-guarding job (http://www.snpp.com/episodes/3F14.html) -- and think that he'll benefit with the change of scenery, though putting his bat in left may present problems as it raises the offensive bar a bit.

Memo to the dude who's now submitted the Omar Vizquel question for the fourth time -- I've got it, and you're not improving your chances by clogging the chat queue, you're hurting them. (Jay Jaffe)
