|2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Do you thing Boxberger loses his gig as closer at any point this season to Jake McGee?|
(M from Milwaukee)
|It's probaby more likely that one of them gets traded. Even if they aren't, the Rays don't really follow the strict set-up/closer roles. With that being said, I'd rather have Boxberger. (Matt Collins)|
|2015-02-16 11:00:00 (link to chat)||RJ, who will be a closer by midseason who didn't start the season in that role?|
(Cal Guy from Cal)
|Jake McGee and Sean Doolittle.
Uh, but if we're talking about ascending types, then I'd say Ken Giles is the obvious pick. He'd just disgusting. Beyond Giles, I'd have to roll with Joakim Soria and perhaps Jairo Diaz, depending on what the Rockies do with LaTroy Hawkins. (R.J. Anderson)
|2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)||What player would you feel the most uncomfortable around if you were alone with said player?|
(Bekah Ansbro from Woodstock, VA)
|Jake McGee. Lefties with velo give me the chills. (Cespedes Family BBQ)|
|2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Roster advice: 10-team/12 keeper league, prepping for the playoffs, currently holding on to Michael Pineda (small sample, hope he's healthy), Taijuan Walker (fingers crossed for another Sunday start), Kevin Gausman (steady contribution), and Jake McGee (slew August) on the pitching staff....looking to add Dexter Fowler for depth at the plate (he'd be first off the bench)...Would you drop any of the pitchers for Fowler?
PS: Staff FWIW: Greinke, Stras, Lester, Kluber, Archer, Rosenthal, Robertson, Jansen w/ Wacha on DL |
(pmitchell60 from NOLA)
|I would stock up on RB/WR first unless you can snag a top QB in rounds 2/3. Really depends on how teams and league scoring. Manning, Rodgers, Brees are head and shoulders above the pack while you can stock pile useful PPR WR/RB late. (CJ Wittmann)|
|2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)||thoughts on these relievers rest of season: Fields, Tolleson, Boxberger, Aaron Sanchez.|
(Frank from brooklyn)
|Fields has a better chance to get saves than any of these guys, Tolleson is likely blocked by Feliz for awhile and Knebel is coming. I like Aaron Sanchez more for the future. I think Jake McGee has that stuff locked down in Tampa, poor Boxberger. (Mauricio Rubio)|
|2014-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Scoresheet league here .Don't have a real closer.Alternating between David Carpenter,Jake McGee and Kelvin Herrera at this point.Based solely on E.R.A,who would you entrench as your closer the rest of way ?|
(Spirou from Montreal)
|Herrera for me (Paul Sporer)|
|2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)||I've been getting crushed by injuries early. I'm in a 15 team mixed where my only healthy closer left is Latroy Hawkins, yeah I know. There are no closers on waivers and most of the really good closers in waiting are taken. I'm looking at names like A.J Ramos, Jake McGee and Edward Mujica. If you're speculating on future saves are there any under the radar options that people might not be that familiar with? Thanks. |
(KcDozer from Florida)
|Starting to think there are no healthy relievers left. I would say Cody Allen but Bret Sayre has blown him up already. Daniel Webb on the White Sox should get a look if Matt Lindstrom fails in Nate Jones' absence. Jeurys Familia has his issues and isn't exactly holding it down this year but he still throws hard and has a slider which is the requisite closer starting kit. Dellin Betances can get a look, there are a few names out there. (Mauricio Rubio)|
|2014-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Chris Archer working hard on change-up, Jake Odorizzi learning how to throw Alex Cobb's split-finger change-up, Nate Karns improving on his change-up and Jake McGee adding a change-up w/ a possibility of a curveball to his repertoire. Which one of these guys will benefit most from adding the pitch that some people are obsessed/fixated/fascinated with? If Odorizzi does indeed learn and hone "The Thing"(split-change), would this take him from a bottom-of-rotation to a 2/3 guy because he'll finally have an out-pitch?|
(jlarsen from Chicagoland Area)
|a killer changeup can move the needle, sure. But some times a guy is just hoping to get a half-way decent one. In theory any big league pitcher who 'learns awesome new pitch' is going to get better, change cutter knucklecurve etc, but it feels to me like Odorizzi and Archer are going to benefit the most, since they are already potential quality starters and this could put them over the top. Karns could be helped out by having a better chance to stick in the rotation, but that's not as shiny as having a chacne to be a front-line guy. (Harry Pavlidis)|
|2014-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)||We know about pitchers adding a new pitch in spring, but what are your thoughts Jake McGee reintroducing a curveball?|
(SpamFuld from Inthebox)
|The news is especially significant for McGee given his extreme FB-leaning ways. He threw heaters 94% of the time last year (!), and he needs something else to put in the minds of opposing hitters. Hopefully the curve is trustworthy enough to become a ~10-20% pitch.

|2013-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Looking for saves in 2014, how many of these guys are capable/likely to grab 20+ saves next season: Trevor Rosenthal, David Robertson, Cody Allen, Jake McGee, Brian Wilson, Luke Gregerson, Pedro Strop, Drew Storen, Ryan Cook, Carlos Martinez, Vic Black, Joakim Soria, Neftali Feliz, Steve Delebar, Kelvin Herrera, Carter Capps, and/or AJ Ramos?|
(J-Qwellin from Deplorable Future Leaders of America Club)
|J-QWELLIN!!!! Interestingly enough, I'm working on such a piece re: 2014 closers. From your group, I'd go Rosy & D-Rob, but honestly any of them have the capability. I know that's a little copout-y, but that's the nature of the beast with relievers. (Paul Sporer)|
|2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)||The Rays closer in 2014 will be (Jake McGee, Juan Carlos Oviedo, Free Agent(bargain bin, non-tendered reliever) Acquisition, Trade Acquisition)?|
(jlarsen from Chicago, IL)
|bargain bin (Harry Pavlidis)|
|2013-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Have you heard anything in regards to Juan Carlos Oviedo and will he pitch at all for the Rays this year? With how Fernando Rodney has been iffy(in his walk year) and Jake McGee being Jekyll/Hyde, is Oviedo the likely closer for Tampa next year?|
(jlarsen from chicago burbs)
|the former Leo Nunez? Not a peep. Is he even pitching anywhere? (Harry Pavlidis)|
|2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)||Mr. Collette, who would you add to this list of the best relief pitching options (no closers) for ratios:
Kenlay Jansen, Trevor Rosenthal and Kyuji Fujikawa. |
(RP producers from USA)
|Jake McGee, Luke Gregerson, Mark Melancon (Jason Collette)|
|2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Mike Morse for Jake McGee (TBR). Is this enough to start a conversation?
(comish4lif from Alexandria, VA)
|Yes. (Ben Lindbergh)|
|2012-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Wade Davis or Jake McGee, who is more of a promising reliever for the future for leagues that have holds as a stat?|
(jlarsen from chicago)
|I'd prefer McGee. Davis made an excellent transition to the bullpen this year, but McGee's handedness should assure him holds against tough lefties late in games. (Josh Shepardson)|
|2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Who do you think is the next guy to nab a closer job? I'm talking about unheralded guys like John Axford last year as opposed to the sexy setup guys from the preseason like Daniel Bard and Jake McGee.|
(Aaron from YYZ)
|I'll say Kevin Jepsen of the Angels. (John Perrotto)|
|2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)||If you had to pick between the Yankees top pitching prospects, Boston's top pitching prospects and Tampa Bay's top pitching prospects, who would you pick to have the most success in the future?|
(jlarsen from DRays Bay)
|That's the billion dollar question, isn't it? I'm not a prospect expert, so I'm not sure I've got the most informed opinion here, but it's fun to kick the idea around. For all of Hughes' struggles, I think if you pair him and Chamberlain against Buchholz and Masterson, I think they come out ahead in the long run -- I tend to like those big bodies when it comes to durability, though of course with Hughes we have little evidence he's actually durable. As for the Rays, I haven't seen enough of David Price, Wade Davis, Jacob McGee or Jeff Niemann to know which of the two I should be comparing them to (if we're going two deep), but many people are very high on them. (Jay Jaffe)|
|2008-01-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)||wait, you're still here??
tell me the one guy on this list who you think is the most controversial placement (whether above or below the general consensus), and then defend your ranking of him.|
(joonpahk from Cambridge MA)
|I'm still here! So far, based on the chat questins and my email, the answer are.
1. Jacob McGee at 40. Again, that says he's the 4th best LHP in the minors, so it's not shabby at all. Questions about his secondary stuff hurt him.
2. Clay at 2, Joba at 4. Obviously, with those rankings, I think both will be great, but Buchholz has the better all-around arsenal, better command, and Joba still has some dings on his healthy history. Mostly this is just the superfan subset of Yankees fans bitching becuase a Red Sox guy is ahead of a Yankee guy.
3. Lars Anderson at 100. He's a first baseman who's hit, but hasn't mashed. I just don't see it, and scouting views I've gotten just like him and don't love him. There is also an aspect of the superfan subset of Red Sox fans bitching because thier guy is lower than expected.
4. Travis Snider in the single digits. I don't get why this is surprising. (Kevin Goldstein)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
