BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any baseball-related skill at which you think you are better than any current major leaguer, and if so, what is it and who is it?
(Truman from Seahaven)
I am not very good at baseball and have a bad throwing shoulder, so I couldn't even say I'd hit better than the worst hitting pitchers or throw better than the weakest first baseman. I am faster than some major leaguers though. I watched Jose Molina saunter out a double the other day, and I am decidedly faster than he is.

Is it mean to say that today I could throw harder than Jonny Venters? Get well Jonny :( (Zachary Levine)
2013-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a keeper league w/ farm system (7x7 obp, xbh,hld, qs)- I am being offered my choice of Matt Moore or David Price, Tyler Skaggs, R. Soriano, Jonny Venters, and two-4 first round picks for my Gerrit Cole and Craig Kimbrel, and Clayton Kershaw. Yes, No, or Maybe So?
(Mitch from Buffalo)
I'm not sure what's going to be available at those picks, but unless it is substantial talent I would pass. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any picks for non-closers worth taking for pure K/WHIP/ERA/maybe win-stealing upside? Basically Tyler Clippard types...
(Mark from Cleveland)
Kenley Jansen #1, but his save upside will make him expensive. Clippard is good. Mike Adams, Sergio Romo (if they let him face more lefties this year and he gets more than 40 IP), Jonny Venters, Hong-Chih Kuo (if healthy), Joaquin Benoit, Grant Balfour (if he doesn't close), Matt Thornton/Addison Reed (whoever doesn't close). (Derek Carty)
2011-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Fredi Gonzalez overused Craig Kimbrel? Coming back to bite the Braves down the stretch?
(Trey from Frisco TX)
That's one of the topics I'm looking at for tomorrow's column; in fact I was so absorbed in it that the chat got a late start. I think the answer is yes given that he's second in the league in appearances to only teammate Jonny Venters. Note that his last two appearances, and the tripling of his home runs allowed total, came during a stretch of three consecutive appearances, and that the last three games he's allowed runs have come on zero days of rest. I'd include Venters, whose 82 appearances lead the league, in the overuse pile as well based upon his September struggles. (Jay Jaffe)
