|2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Gallardo to the Mariners for Seth Smith. How much does this suck for the Mets?
(Tiny R from TX)
|I am not sure which side of the trade the Mets would want. Maybe both actually. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)||I have Braun's injury to deal with and Victorino's chronic woes as my lone backup OF in a 16-team dynasty h2h points where sp are king. Seth Smith is available - which of these sp is the best to trade for him - colon, dickey, peavy, morrow? Wins are overvalued and morrow has some added value as he's sp/rp eligible. Thanks.|
(JoJo from SD)
|I don't love Morrow, but given that information, I'll say Peavy. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2014-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)||What do you think it would cost KC if they were to acquire Gattis and what do you think Holland could return them?|
(GS1 from Kentucky)
|GS1, I don't see the Braves moving Gattis now that they've traded Heyward; that move seems to have cleared left field for Gattis so that Christian Bethancourt could get the lion's share of the time at catcher. The Braves seem more likely to sign a free agent starting pitcher or two, so my guess is that if the Royals wanted to acquire Gattis, they'd need to send a rotation-ready arm to Atlanta.
Some closer-needy teams might be over the moon to get Holland, especially since he's controllable beyond 2015. Blue-chip prospects could definitely be in play if Moore chose to go that route, and useful outfielders might, too. Remember, the Padres got Seth Smith from the A's for Luke Gregerson last offseason, and Holland is both far better and younger than Gregerson. (Daniel Rathman)
|2014-07-31 19:30:00 (link to chat)||Redraft keeper league, 12 teams, h2h 5x5, auction. Competing team that is well balanced.
Trade Beltre ($38) for Machado (13) and Taveras (8)? Currently starting Jennings and Seth Smith in OF.|
(Baub from Fenix)
|Wow. If you can take the hit this year, yes, adding Machado and Taveras is an outstanding long-term play if inflation isn't out of control. (Ben Carsley)|
|2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)||What do the Padres end up doing when both Liriano and Renfroe and ready to play RF at Petco?|
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
|Celebrating the fact that they've actually developed two hitting prospects and worry about where to play them later. These things work themselves out. They always do. They'll both play somewhere. I doubt Seth Smith will still be blocking one of them in left. (Jeff Moore)|
|2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)||Rest of Season: Seth Smith or Charlie Blackmon?|
(50 Cent from 40 yards south of home plate)
|Blackmon based on park and playing time alone. He'll slow down, but he's a legit MLB starter. Nice throw btw. (Ben Carsley)|
|2014-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)||What kind of trade market do you see for Chase Headley, Seth Smith, Quentin and/or Huston Street?
Once the Padres realize Cashner need TJ they will probably be in build for the future mode.|
(fahlstrome from San Diego)
|Not future-changing on any of those guys. I understand why they held onto Headley when he was at the peak of his value, but I'm guessing they'll look back on it with - if not regret then at least wishes that they could undo it with hindsight. (Zachary Levine)|
|2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)||Have a 5X5 (.BA, HR, Steals, RBI, Runs) Need a bat and probably a CI/1B position due to lack of depth: best available are A. Lind, J. Smoak, C. Asche. Other hitters available: L. Cain, M. Ozuna, Seth Smith. Gotta pick one Who do ya like? |
(Mark Melancon from The Shark Tank)
|Probably run with Smoak right now, but I think Asche is a viable option as well. If we're seriously including the OFers I like Smith the most. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2013-10-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)||If you were Oakland, who stays and goes for 2014? Some choices are obvious -- Chris Young and Kurt Suzuki are gone. Grant Balfour and Bartolo Colon are probably not affordable. Brett Anderson, Seth Smith, and Josh Reddick are all non-tender candidates, though Smith and Reddick could be back because it doesn't look like Michael Choice is ready. How do they fix the middle of the infield? Jed Lowrie isn't going to put up this type of offense to make up for that poor of a glove and Eric Sogard and Albert Callaspo -- just, no. The Coliseum hides the total mediocre state of the A's rotation.|
(Dave from Chicago)
|Great question. Agree on Young and Suzuki. Balfour will probably price himself out of Oakland, a team that has no problem with a revolving door of closers. I think that Reddick sticks around, unless his homer counts exorbitantly drive up the price in his first year of arbitration. It will be interesting to see what Colon wants contractually, and the A's could easily bow out if he wants a multi-year deal. There is no way that the A's pay $8 million for Anderson next year, so his option will be declined, but it will be interesting to see if he re-signs on a one-year deal to re-establish his value. Coco Crisp will probably be taken up on his $7.5 million option, given his somewhat unique blend of speed and power in CF (as well as his clubhouse appeal). The A's like the power that Lowrie offers in the middle of the diamond, and their backup options are less than inspiring (Nakajima has turned out to be a waste of $6.5 million).
The A's pitching succeeds in many ways that are tough to see. Yes, the Coliseum and its immense foul territory certainly help, but the A's have an excellent system in place for pitcher development. They emphasize balance, posture, and pitch repetition - and they eschew the slide step! So they earn the benefit of the doubt when it comes to developing pitchers from within and identifying which arms to bring into the system.
On the jukebox: Aerosmith, "Ragdoll" (Doug Thorburn)
|2013-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)||well, the trade of Chris Carter to Houston probably makes Moss the full-time 1B in Oakland. Don't see any platoon mate for him on that roster.|
(Chris from LA)
|There's still Barton (he of the internal organs I mentioned earlier), Lowrie, Rosales, Seth Smith...even Michael Taylor and Shane Peterson have been taking grounders there recently, according to MLB.com's Jane Lee. It seems like Oakland is still hoping to avoid having Moss face too many lefties. (Ben Lindbergh)|
|2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Are you still a Billy Beane fan? I'm not anymore; the guy can't make good trades that don't involve Dan Haren. If not, do you see any way he doesn't outlive all of us as GM-for-life?|
(oira79 from San Francisco)
|I wish he'd quit shilling for ownership's desires to move to San Jose (the crying about how the A's can't compete in Oakland isn't really becoming of a man of his stature), but I'm not going to be calling for his head any time soon. Taking shots at contention hasn't worked out when he's gone for it, but I'd dispute this "good trades" point -- three years of Seth Smith for Josh Outman and Guillermo Moscoso is a steal, for instance. (Jason Wojciechowski)|
|2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)||I grant you that Moscoso and the best-named pitcher ever have fallen apart in Colorado, but three years of Seth Smith doesn't seem worth having since the guy has a 98 OPS+ and if he ain't hitting, he ain't nothing.
Tell me what else Billy Beane has done for you lately.|
(oira79 from San Francisco)
|Alternatively, Smith has a .289 TAv, well above-average. I don't know if the difference between OPS+ and TAv in this case comes down entirely to a proper weighting of OBP vs. SLG (Smith is, admittedly, not hitting for any power so far) or if there are also disagreements about park factor and league between our numbers and Baseball-Reference. But I'd run with TAv.
I mean, even if Smith has been barely adequate this year, Beane still got a barely adequate player for two bad players. That's an upgrade.
Also: Josh Reddick for an injured closer. I'll take it. (Jason Wojciechowski)
|2010-05-11 16:30:00 (link to chat)||3 NL only guys - Matt Diaz, Seth Smith, Mark DeRosa.
Should I cut bait on them?|
(Carl from Boston)
|I don't play fantasy baseball, so I'm not really sure that I have a good sense of what replacement level is in NL only leagues. Matt Diaz seems like he is in a BABIP funk. His other numbers seem pretty much okay, and he's usually the type to have a very high BABIP, so I'd expect him to be the most likely to bounce back. DeRosa hasn't really shown any power this year, so I'm inclined to think that could be a problem. His BABIP should rebound a bit, but I'd be concerned. Seth Smith isn't walking this year, which I'm guessing is his main problem. His BABIP is low too. All three of these guys seem to be partly unlucky and all have low BABIPs which are drawing your attention. I think DeRosa is the one to be most concerned about if I had to guess. (Matt Swartz)|
|2010-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Free Seth Smith?|
(don from lansing)
|My rankings hope so. Dude can hit. (Marc Normandin)|
|2010-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)||In a 20 team keeper league that starts 4 outfielders I'm going into the draft with an outfield of Kemp/Snider/Fowler/Rasmus and Seth Smith after trading away too-pricey Granderson and Hamilton in the offseason. Assuming I get a decent OF in the draft (Think JD Drew), how screwed am I, assuming I'm well above average everywhere else? |
(Brendan from Chicago)
|That's definitely serviceable with Drew, as long as you're above-average everywhere else as you said. It's kind of a zero-sum game, so you'll most likely be lacking somewhere, unless your draft goes perfectly or everyone you play with is bad at this. (Marc Normandin)|
