DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Help! I have Team 6 in NL All Stars, a 2-time defending division champ. In my quest to try to win the title last year (falling just short), I traded away many of my draft picks for this year. That meant that I wasn't able to draft much depth this year, and what depth I was able to draft (or keep), and whom I was counting on (hoping) to play in the majors are not (George Kottaras, Tommy La Stella, Oscar Tavares, Wilmer Flores, Tony Abreu) or are injured (Carlos Quentin with his annual injury, Josh Johnson). All of this leaves me with exactly one C, two 1B, one 2B, one part-time 3B, one SS, four OFers, five SPs (plus Thornburg), and five SRs. I have three SPs that are in the minors or should pitch later this year (TJ surgery-all Padres) and the aforementioned players languishing in the minors. I'm still competitive (above .500) and wish to remain so this year. What should I be looking for in the upcoming supps? I'd like another SP, but the best two available are Jorge de la Rosa & Jordan Lyles. I don't trust either. Or should I just try to eliminate all the AAA appearances by infielder and outfielder and draft accordingly?
(Mark68 from A Mile High)
We'd probably go with the best SP with one pick and the best middle infielder with the second since a sixth starter can be used regardless and middle infield depth is one of the most painful places to see AAA show up on the weekly results. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Tony Abreu really the solution for the D'backs at 2B? Are they not better off going the free agent route to fill the keystone corner?
(Garrett from Arizona)
I'm not a big fan of Abreu, but again, you can fill second base with any number of options. I think they should have rostered Gotay, to be sure. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-10-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Dewitt as a semi long term answer at 2B for the Dodgers? I don't recall their having an upcoming 2B in the system.
(pestevez from Miami)
Gonna double up this question with one my friend Nick keeps trying to submit:

Who is the real Furcal? The .814 OPS from 2006? The .688 in 2007? Should this year's injury issues give the Dodgers pause about resigning him?

Furcal is a fantastic, MVP-caliber player when healthy, which is about two months a year lately. I think his injury should definitely make the Dodgers think twice about signing him. I'm not opposed to it (perhaps overly jazzed about what he's shown in the last three games) but if they do I'd like to see another shorter-term deal (3 years max) with some incentive clauses or vesting options in there.

As for DeWitt, the Dodgers have him, Chin-Lung Hu and hopefully Tony Abreu as up-and-comers, and as I said in last week's roundtable, that leaves them many options to fill their infield in a post-Kent, post-Blake (and post-LaRoche) world. It's too obvious for them to try to let all of those young 'uns have jobs, so they're likely to sign/acquire/retain at least one of the Furcal/Kent/Blake lot and then let the others battle it out for two positions.

I'm not entirely convinced DeWitt's a good enough fielder at 2B. I'm also not convinced his bat can carry 3B yet. I think the chances of one of those two coming through in the next couple years is decent, but I don't know which one, and I'm not sure the Dodgers do either. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dodgers. DeWitt. LaRoche. How's this gonna end? Did LaRoche anger a deity or something?
(jlebeck66 from WI)
Sticking with this topic for a moment, I'm as big a LaRoche booster as you'll find, but DeWitt is knocking the stuffing out of the ball. I don't expect that to continue unabated, but there's no sense in sitting him down right now.

From a long-term standpoint, it's a nice problem to have. I'd hate to see them trade LaRoche, but I don't think they necessarily have to. I wonder whether the Dodgers would consider revisiting the DeWitt-to-second experiment that they tried in 2006, when the kid was at Vero Beach. With Jeff Kent clearly showing his age and Tony Abreu apparently joining the Federal Witness Protection program, that may be a palatable option. (Jay Jaffe)

2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff Games"JoeR (Syracuse): Have the Dodgers found their future 2nd baseman in Blake Dewitt or do they need to keep looking?"

Between DeWitt, Tony Abreu and Chin-Lung Hu, the Dodgers have some young options to fill their infield in a post-Kent, post-Furcal, post-Blake (and post-LaRoche) world. It's too obvious for them to try to let all of those young 'uns have jobs, so they're likely to sign/acquire/retain at least one of them and then let the others battle it out.

I'm not entirely convinced DeWitt's a good enough fielder at 2B. I'm also not convinced his bat can carry 3B yet. I think the chances of one of those two coming through in the next couple years is decent, but I don't know which one.
