DateQuestionAnswer
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Bogaerts moving to AAA, I'm kind of curious: how do you see AA vs. AAA in terms of player development? Some teams promote guys straight from AA to the majors, and I was increasingly under the impression that AA was the final test for a prospect. While AAA is increasingly older and post-prospect or non-prospect oriented - where guys like Kevin Kouzmanoff end up, to pick just one example. I'd love to have your take. Sorry for the long-winded quasi-question.
(Rob from Alaska)
No problem at all. Every team seems to approach this differently, and I think many teams approach it differently depending upon the prospect. There's no doubt that Triple-A baseball is a step above Double-A baseball. But one factor you get in Triple-A is the clubhouses. While you're around older, more mature players, a lot of times they're guys who are just playing it out. You can get kind of a stale feeling around many Triple-A clubhouses, and that's not always the best thing for an up-and-coming prospect. Lots of older guys who are just kind of showing up to the ballpark and going through the motions. I know that's one thing some teams like to avoid subjecting their prospects to. It can become kind of a grind up there. In a lot of Triple-A clubhouses I've been around, you have a mixture of still hard-working veterans happy to help the team out, a mixture of players frustrated that they aren't in the majors, and a mixture of players who are just "eh, I'm in Triple-A and I'm playing it out here." (Jason Cole)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should the A's jump back into the Adrian Beltre sweepstakes, or would the cost not be worth it with what they have in Kevin Kouzmanoff?
(Eric from Denver)
The As have offered Beltre very solid deals like every team he was a free agent and he turned them down repeatedly. He doesn't want to go to Oakland, so the As shouldn't waste their time. (Eric Seidman)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who should play 3B for the Indians next season (cannot be from this set: {Nix, Valbuena, Marte})? Are there any "blocked" prospects in orgs like Tampa, Washington, or New York who have third basemen in place for the next half-decade that Cleveland could trade for?
(buffum from Austin TX)
I could see them swooping in on a potential non-tender, perhaps a Jose Lopez, maybe an Edwin Encarnacion. Or, irony of ironies, Kevin Kouzmanoff. (John Perrotto)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)A lot of people in my office tell me that I should get some guy named Beltre for some of my young pitching.... should I listen to them?
(Bill Smith from Minneapolis, MI)
Some, but I wouldn't go nuts. Maybe the Orioles would give you Aubrey Huff for a lot less. Maybe you get Kevin Kouzmanoff for less, and still get the righty slugger you need for less. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-05-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)I really like the game previews that you write (along with Caleb). Do you enjoy working on them?
(Trieu from Cambridge, MA)
Thanks! I do, it reminds me of when I used to write Prospectus Notebook, where we took something interesting that you don't normally hear a lot about regarding a team and expand on it. I don't always pick the games with the most interesting matchups, as far as Hit List rankings and records are concerned. I like to pick games featuring players or trends that have caught my attention lately, like yesterday when I wrote about the improvements in Kevin Kouzmanoff's defense. That was a game between the last two teams in the Hit List rankings, but here I am, wanting to watch it :-) (Marc Normandin)
