DateQuestionAnswer
2015-10-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Anything weird stick out in pirates roster or lineup today?
(Bob E from Wrigleyville)
Lots. They have a catcher who has barely played as their third catcher. They have Sean Rodriguez playing first because Pedro Alvarez is terrible defensively. So bad that they're playing defense first at FIRST BASE. And Harrison in the lineup makes sense, but I would have gone with him over Walker instead of sitting Aramis (Sahadev Sharma)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a deep dynasty league (20 teams, 1000 players owned (MLB & MiLB): I'm potentially a playoff team if I can get my offense together. I have Fielder on the DL, with pretty much a zero (Sean Rodriguez) manning 1B. What to do? If Fielder is healthy next season and get back to his slugging ways, we all win, but his is an injury we haven't seen great success with in other players that have and it. What does the dynasty manager do in this situation?
(Jonah from Redwood)
Since you're competing, you see if you can get a legitimate return on Fielder. Obviously you can't get what you would've four-five months ago, but you should be able to easily upgrade S.Rodriguez (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Sean Rodriguez playing 1b and some OF this spring. Is he a lost cause?

Nope, worth a $1 bid in AL-only auctions. (Paul Singman)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please, please, please tell me that the Rays will remove Reid Brignac, Elliot Johnson and possibly Sean Rodriguez for better Utility IFers.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Is Geoff Blum still available? And on that note, I must take my leave. (Geoff Young)
2012-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Just wondering if there's any hope for Ryan Raburn or Sean Rodriguez now. I thought they were great MI sleepers in April.
(Francisco from Toronto)
Raburn's BABIP is only .225 where's he's been comfortably over .300 in previous seasons. He appears to be walking and striking out at about the same rate as last season, but he wasn't really that valuable last season. I'd want to check out his approach a little bit more closely to see what's changed, but unless his bat speed is totally gone, he'll probably be better in the second half. But he won't be so much better that the Tigers will regret getting Omar Infante.

Sean Rodirguez just isn't that good a hitter. The problem this year is he's walking less than last season (and his BABIP in 2010 hasn't been repeated), but he could still be useful as super-sub reserve in real life. In fantasy, I don't see it. (Dan Turkenkopf)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any stats that you use that you feel are undervalued, even among stats people?
(Jason from Starbucks)
Yes--extra-base taken percentage. Baseball-Reference.com tracks it (XBT%). In the old days, we were all about offense, then the paradigm shifted to defense. I keep waiting on everyone to gravitate towards instinctive, heady baserunners, but it hasn't happened yet. Players who can go from first-to-third on a single or score from first on a double add value that I think can go unappreciated. Take Sean Rodriguez. He doesn't post great success rates on stolen bases, but you know that he gets baserunning if you've seen him during the run of play. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, what are some of the most important spring battles yet to be decided, where the winner might be worth $5+ just for being a full-timer?
(Sky from The Roc, NY)
If the Orioles end up stealing PA's from Reimold to give to Endy Chavez simply because they want a leadoff guy while Roberts is out, there's one. Sean Rodriguez now will get a majority of the playing time early at shortstop with Brignac out with the foot issue and Rodriguez's struggles vs RHP should hold down his value enough at the draft table where he could go for $5-7 and then double that in season because he has the potential to go 20/15 (Jason Collette)
2011-04-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tampa Bay -- DOA?
(Mike from Cleveland)
The difference between the Rays and the Red Sox is that the loss of Longoria could be a crippling blow. Not only is he by far their best hitter, but putting Sean Rodriguez into a platoon at third base deprives Joe Maddon of the flexibility which his multi-position arrangement involving Ben Zobrist produces. Plus I was never sold on the idea that Dan Johnson is a real solution at first base. They're not dead yet, but the Rays are in worse shape than the Sox as far as the big picture goes. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-03-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Fantasy question. I am in a deep 20 team league with 5 keepers per season. Looking at 2nd baseman strictly for this season, who would be more valuable, Dustin Ackley or Sean Rodriguez. And looking at it from a more long term perspective, Ackley, Christian Colon, Grant Green (assuming he moves to 2nd) or Rodriguez,
(kcroyalsguy from KC)
I'd go with Sean Rodriguez. Better team. Ackley won't get called up until June, and I think Ackley's value lies more in his secondary skills than standard 5x5 stats. Long-term, out of those guys it absolutely has to be Ackley, no? He just projects to be a different caliber of player. (Jeremy Greenhouse)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of upside do you think Sean Rodriguez has with the Rays?
(Nick from Reno)
I've always liked him, and always found him a bit under-rated. I think he's a solid every day player, maybe even a touch above average. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)If you're Andrew Friedman, do you sign Branyan, and if so, how do you make it work on the roster?
(Stephanie from DC)
Yeah, I think signing Branyan would be a great idea. He bats lefty and they've already got flexibility with Sean Rodriguez and Ben Zobrist on the roster. Clearly he isn't commanding a massive salary, so I don't really see the downside. Plus, the value of a marginal win to the Rays is very high. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)So if you're Andrew Friedman, and you have Zorilla, Bartlett, Brignac, Sean Rodriguez, and Matt Joyce all scrapping it out for 3 spots (RF, 2B, SS). Who do you play where, who do you put on the bench, and who do you put in AAA? Where are they being assigned on your fantasy lists?
(Stephanie from DC)
Zorilla at 2nd, Bartlett at SS for now, replace him with Brignac if necessary, Rodriguez in Z's old gig when he used to back up Aki (with occasional ABs elsewhere) and Joyce in RF. (Marc Normandin)
2009-12-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)What does the future hold for Sean Rodriguez in Tampa?
(Jack from TB)
Tough for me to answer that, given the Rays aren't even sure where he's going to play yet. He could fill the old Ben Zobrist role if they keep Z at second base, but with Aki gone maybe he gets to play second if Zobrist moves to the outfield permanently. Either way, I think he'll be productive in his role. (Marc Normandin)
2009-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Rays do, Matt Joyce/Sean Rodriguez/Reid Brignac all have spent more than enough time in AAA and really have nothing to prove. Do the Rays assume that Jason Bartlett's 2009 is nothing more than a "fluke" and shouldn't be expect from here on out?
(jlarsen from chicago)
I assume you think that Zobrist will be a 2B, Jake? I'm loathe to offer the Rays any advice, but like the Angels a couple years back, they're going to need to turn minor league talent into major league talent via trade. There's a point where "best available" stops being so good on a talent level, especially with a real issue of payroll and bullpen. (Will Carroll)
2009-09-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does the inclusion of Sean Rodriguez as the PTBNL in the Scott Kazmir trade change your opinion on it at all?
(eneff1 from Berkeley, CA)
I followed up on that element the next day, and no, not substantially. Rodriguez isn't going to stick at shortstop, and murdilating pitching in Utah in a repeat engagement isn't exactly a rare talent, as good as Rodriguez is. I don't think he'll be the next Jeff Kent, but I do think he can be a solid regular at second. The problem as I see it is that a solid regular at second is an easier commodity to find than a quality rotation regular. For me, the deal still boils down to how good Torres winds up, and that could be very good. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Angels just called up Sean Rodriguez and Bobby Wilson...no corresponding moves otherwise..mean anything?
(Hal from LA)
Don't they do something with Sean Rodriguez every fourth day? I wouldn't read into it. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-03 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jay, thanks for your great work and the chat. What is your prognosis for my Angels this season? Time to send Kendrick and Aybar down and bring up Sean Rodriguez and Brandon Wood?
(Dennis from Monterey Park, CA)
I'd say the Howie Kendrick party is over, and while I don't think much of Rodriguez, the time to see what Wood can do is long overdue. Seriously, I think he and Jeff Clement are drinking from the same jug of bad organizational karma.

Three more questions. (Jay Jaffe)
