2009-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Steve, thanks for the chat. What are your thoughts on how Girardi handles the Yanks' pen? He seems to be excellent strategically (players know and are comfortable with their roles, no one's overworked, flexible in who has what role) but mediocre tactically (who to bring in to face which batters).
(Jeff P from NYC)
I think you've nailed it exactly. As I said earlier, in both of his seasons in New York, he's started with one bullpen and finished with another, and after more than a decade of Joe Torre's obsessive focus on one or two relievers, as well as blind loyalty to anyone who had been on the roster for more than 15 minutes, it's been quite refreshing. If Torre were here, we'd still be watching balls hit off of Edwar Ramirez fly over the moon... It's been so long since I've seen a manager who excelled at pen matchups on a regular basis. Who would you rate as tops at that? Scioscia? LaRussa? (Steven Goldman)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)You're the Cleveland GM. I offer you Austin Jackson, Wilkin de la Rosa, David Robertson, and Edwar Ramirez for Cliff Lee. You take it?
(Robert O from NY)
I think I can do better. Just two prospects there. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)You're JP Ricciardi. I offer you Jesus Montero, Joba Chamberlain, Brett Gardner, and Edwar Ramirez for Vernon Wells and Roy Halladay.
(Mike from Bronx)
Oh, god yes. Prospects AND $115 million? Are you kidding me? That deal would be insanely great for the Jays.

It would also mean Ricciardi was never around to benefit from it. Ah, moral hazard. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Rangers-Yanks trade...Salty for Ian Kennedy?
(wilk75 from houston)
Saltalamacchia seems to be third on the list in Texas, so this deal might make sense for both teams, but I think Daniels would want more back. Would Kennedy and Edwar Ramirez be too much? Kennedy's value has plummeted this year. It'd work for the Yankees, who would have an offense/defense combination behind the plate, and a candidate for a job-share with Posada at C/DH for the next couple of seasons. I just don't know if it's enough to get him. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Follow up to the Joba question, do you see Edwar Ramirez taking over as the go-to guy in the 8th? He's a freak of nature who misses more bats than anyone, as far as i can tell.
(kimi from portsmouth)
I think he's still living down last year's rather disastrous audition, but the good thing for him is that Joe Torre isn't here anymore and Joe Girardi wasn't here then, so the impression hasn't been allowed to calcify. It's still obvious that they're not in a hurry to trust him with high-leverage situations, but eventually they're going to run out of other choices now that Joba is out of the pen. That said, they should be auditioning more relievers in general, a point I made in today's Pinstriped Blog entry over at YES. Given that they lose every game Ross Ohlendorf appears in anyway, they might as well give someone else a chance to pitch trash time and see if they can do well and move up to greater responsibilities. They have those guys down on the farm. (Steven Goldman)
2008-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can you tell us about Edwar Ramirez? He sure knows how to miss bats...
(Drew from New York)
Decent fastball, OUTSTANDING changeup -- really one of the best around. Pitching well in NY and I think will continue to do so. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the first thought that comes to your mind with the whole Edwar Ramirez "stats found him story"? Smart and sensible move considering the low investment or unwise lack of homework and first-hand scouting that happened to work out pretty well this time but shouldn't become a habit?
(costa24 from Montreal)
Sure, but it's also a lie. Yankees sent a scout on a holiday weekend for like a five hour drive to go see him pitch before they signed him. So don't believe the myth that he got inked off a spreadsheet, it's just not true. (Kevin Goldstein)
