BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-23 12:30:00 (link to chat)What's the O/U for future Jered Weaver MLB innings? Additionally, who throws more MLB IP the next five years: Jered Weaver, Johan Santana, or Lucas Harrell?
(Lion from Wherever astronauts are)
Oh man, I was just thinking the other day about one of my very first BP pieces, which considered who would get more innings over the next five years, Scott Kazmir (out of baseball entirely at the time), Jamie Moyer (46 or so and recovering from TJ) and Mark Prior (pitching well in Double-A). I thought about redoing it but couldn't decide on the three pitchers to debate. This isn't quite right, but Weaver's a good starting point.

Most likely number is 0, at maybe 20 percent; but the over/under I'd set is probably 145. (Sam Miller)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)In your opinion who may be a few pitchers outside the top 100-150 or so that will possibly take a leap forward or make a name for themselves in 2013 that could be possible steals at the end of some drafts?
(Chris from NJ)
Using the bottom 100 names from the PFM: Lucas Harrell, Nate Eovaldi, Chris Tillman, Alex Cobb, Jason Hammel (Jason Collette)
2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Lucas Harrell? He was one of the few bright spots for Astros fans last year, and he's looked solid in the Spring so far (insert S.T. caveats). Do you like his chances to repeat or even improve upon his 2012 performance?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Ashitaka, thanks for the question. In all honesty, I think Harrell's best qualities are that he is durable and that he plays for the Astros. The stuff isn't great, the command isn't great. He is a decent back-end option, but what you see is what you get. (Geoff Young)
