BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)If it was the 18th inning and you needed to use a position player to pitch, would you use the guy who would throw the best (like Andrelton Simmons, if you were the Braves) or the guy you cared least about (like Ramiro Pena, if you were the Braves)?
(Jackson from Stockton)
If it's the 18th inning, everyone's tired and I just want to go home so if I'm the Braves I'm using Luis Avilan again. (Matt Sussman)
2014-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you think Tommy La Stella projects at the MLB level? With Uggla's struggling continuing, and the Braves' offense currently in a rut, is there a chance La Stella makes it up by the break? Ramiro Pena is a great super-sub, and Tyler Pastornicky is a roster spot capable of multiple positions, but it seems the Braves could maybe start getting some MLB looks for La Stella to see what he is. Thanks. My first time, so apologies if I violated any protocols.
(@Jervass from Atlanta)
It's hard to say what the Braves are going to do because there's such a strong influence of money involved with Uggla's contract. Of course, that's sunk cost, so there's no reason for them to ruin a potentially good season because they already screwed up. We all know that teams do that all the time, though. As for La Stella...hitters gonna hit. He's not a good second baseman, but Uggla isn't exactly Robbie Alomar out there either. He's probably their best option, the only question is when the Braves are willing to have an expensive one-dimensional bench player in Uggla. I don't think we'll see a complete change, but I wouldn't be surprised to see La Stella up this summer at some point in some kind of time-share deal at second. (Jeff Moore)
2011-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Lackey is also tradeable; someone might be willing to take him off the Red Sox, believing a change in scenary could help. Jeter is a pure sunk cost, and is looking very much the sink part right now. I don't think I've seen Nunez play the field yet - so far, all his problems have been on throws, right? That seems correctable. How does he look in the field otherwise?
(Shaun P. from Medway, MA)
He has more range than Jeter, though that's damning him with faint praise. And the news now comes down that Eric Chavez has a "small fracture" in his foot, so I guess we won't be seeing him for awhile. As we've often said at BP, health is a skill. Sadly, and I really mean sadly, Chavez doesn't have it. I wonder who gets called up. I hope it's someone more useful than Ramiro Pena... (Steven Goldman)
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)So what did you think of the fans' involvement in the Yankee run production last night?
(Peter Q from San Diego)
Hey, Pete. I owe you a phone call... I think until they build ballparks with the appropriate setbacks, that stuff is going to happen and I don't get too exercised about it. I've never quite understood what the appeal of catching a ball is anyway. It's... a ball. Sure, Enrique Wilson fouled it into the stands, but does that really make it that special. Are you going to tell your grandkids that you caught the ball that Ramiro Pena hit? Your grandchildren are going to be living underwater anyway, and won't have any idea what you're talking about. (Steven Goldman)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know it is water under the bridge, but wouldn't it have still made sense to include Eduardo Nunez in the Cliff Lee debacle? I understand the M's kept upping the ante but do you think Nunez should have been a dealbreaker ? I don't.
(Tom S from Albany)
I don't either. The only reason I can think of is that if there were some sort of catastrophic injury to Derek Jeter, the Yankees think Nunez could be plugged in and still give them a little punch at the position. He could, I guess... More than Ramiro Pena, less than everyone else? (Steven Goldman)
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Yankees looking for a longer-term solution at DH than Juan Miranda, or are they going to rotate the vets through and give too many PA's to the likes of Ramiro Pena?
(Eli from Brooklyn)
I'm hearing they will pounce on Paul Konerko if the White Sox decide to start trading off veterans. (John Perrotto)
2009-04-10 16:30:00 (link to chat)Hi Christina, I have a transaction rules question. On Wednesday the A's claimed Dan Niese off waivers from the Evil Empire and immediately optioned him to Sacramento. How are they able to do that? Why couldn't the Empire just send him down to one of its evil outposts if he has an option left? Thanks.
(oira61 from San Francisco)
Because they were taking him off of their 40-man roster to make room for Ramiro Pena on it (and on their active roster); he had options, so when the A's snagged him, they could, although they did have to do as the Yankees had with Giese and designate Chris Schroder for assignment, because they too were full up on their 40-man. (Christina Kahrl)
