DateQuestionAnswer
2015-06-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)It looks like Matt Holliday is going to come off the DL shortly. What does St. Louis do about the resulting glut of above-average outfielders (plus Jon Jay) other than gloat a lot?
(Bill from New Mexico)
They could make a trade, but their roster is so deep that it's hard to see what they'd do. Peter Bourjos would seem like the odd man out if they don't make a move. (Mike Gianella)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)You and Mike Matheny switch roles, so that you fill out the major-league roster (and he does commentary, if anyone notices). Who gets the playing time with that crowded outfield situation? Holliday is obviously near 100%, but how do you apportion the rest between Jon Jay, Jason Heyward, Peter Bourjos and Randal Grichuk?
(Bill from New Mexico)
I'm completely compromised when it comes to Peter Bourjos. I'd go Grichuck, Bourjos and Heyward LF/CF/RF with Jay filling in the corners and never ever setting foot in center again. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Bench players with a chance to perform at high level if given a chance....? (Deep leagues)
(Darnell Coles from Jose Batista before he was good)
Justin Smoak. Peter Bourjos if only for the steals. (I still believe in him, and now he had the hip surgery). Aaron Hill (he'll get traded, and the guy can hit when healthy). (Mike Gianella)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Would you trade for Peter Bourjos in a NL-only league? Also is Craig's girl Spanish?
(D Rock from Atlanta)
That depends what I'm trading for him. He's certainly worth rostering, but I'm not going to make a huge push for him. And I've only seen a picture, but I think no. Unless you're referring to Mau, in which case def yes. (Ben Carsley)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any NL-only 4th OF'ers or equivalent that you really like? I'm thinking of someone along the lines of Allen Craig a few yearsa ago that flashed some promise but was in line to back up at the start of the season.
(mj1453 from chicago)
I like Drew Stubbs for the Colorado factor and because Corey Dickerson is no sure thing, Jon Jay as a sneaky value proposition behind the oft-injured Peter Bourjos, and Nate McLouth as a sneaky source of speed even as a backup. (Mike Gianella)
2013-10-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Think that it's too "Rays-esque" if they kicked the tires on Peter Bourjos? Would love to see Jennings back at LF(Plus D there, looking at his DRS totals from '10-'12), Bourjos in CF & Myers in RF.
(jlarsen from Chicago)
Depends on how much the Angels want for him. He'd fit in well in Tampa, but he's a pretty good player so he'd actually fit in well in a lot of places. Having Bourjos (whose name I always want to spell Bourjous for symmetry's sake) in center would help a lot, especially with Myers in right. (Matthew Kory)
2013-07-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Angels shop Peter Bourjos at the deadline for pitching? I know he's hurt now, but would his injury be a deal-breaker as of now? If not, what could the Angels net in return?
(Brent from Laguna Beach)
They certainly could. How hurt would matter of course, but I believe Jake Peavy was dealt while injured. Bourjos would likely net a mint and rightfully so, but there isn't a ton on the market. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Scoresheet keeper league round 21 or 22: Lorenzo Cain or Peter Bourjos?
(hotstatrat from Toronto)
Hey hotstatrat, I miss your city... best dim sum I've ever had (but I get to see Rush inducted into the Rock and Roll HOF next month, so I can't complain). Those are the tough rounds. In my combined league, both went in round 17, with Bourjos coming six picks after Cain. The former gives you sick defense, while the latter might have some untapped offensive upside. If this is AL-only, there's a remote chance that Cain becomes a keeper. I'd take him first. (Geoff Young)
2013-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your favorite baseball player ever?
(Kris from Santa Barbara)
William Van Landingham, with nods to J.R. Phillips and Bill Mueller. Favorite active is Peter Bourjos. (Sam Miller)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Can Peter Bourjos repeat his 2011 season, or will he end up on the bench, with Trout moving back to center and Kole Calhoun or (ugh) Vernon Wells in left?
(Mark68 from A Mile High)
I don't expect to see those kind of numbers out of Bourjos again. Even without that, I think he can still play everyday for a Major League team. Ultimately, I think he'll get pushed aside by Trout in center field, assuming they have reasonable options on the corners. (Mark Anderson)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Peter Bourjos for Nick Castellanos; who hangs up first?
(Tyson from Chicago)
I think it could be reasonably discussed, but ideally the Tigers would shift focus back to Porcello and look to play that angle. (Paul Sporer)
2012-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm going to rehash a question that I asked another BP writer this week. What player currently relegated to a bench role would perform at a star level if given a full time job or was traded and utilized correctly? So far, we've only gotten Brandon Belt and Peter Bourjos between the 2 of us.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Belt's been starting regularly for months now, so I think we can cross him off the list.

Not really sure about Bourjos either. He's clearly an above-average defender, but I'm not sure he's a "real" .270 hitter. If he is, then yeah, with his speed, he might crack star-level.

It's a good question, but no one else is really springing to mind for me. Let's crowdsource: you guys have any votes for guys who are currently playing in a bench role who deserve a starting spot? (Ian Miller)
2012-06-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Realistically, Sam, what do the Angels do with Vernon Wells come August? Is he relegated to 4th/5th/6th OF or do we finally sever the tie to the affable albatross?
(dannyras from CA)
If he weren't Vernon Wells, but were some Triple-A veteran, he'd be a little bit of a perfect fourth outfielder. He can play all three spots, he is actually pretty good defensively at a corner, he has power off the bench. I guess you'd rather he switch-hit and run a little bit, but he'd be not the worst fourth outfielder.

The problem is that you don't want a sulking veteran in the clubhouse, and Vernon probably won't respond to being benched like a Triple-A veteran. I guess he sticks around this year until they figure out whether Torii is coming back in some role after 2012, and until Peter Bourjos has either stuck or unstuck. (Sam Miller)
2012-06-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Peter Bourjos stick for long as Angels? Or eventually go to Nationals and play CF for #Nattitude ?
(Chris from Bourjos household)
I don't think there was much to the Nationals connection ever. I think Hunter is going to probably play himself into a pretty good contract somewhere else, Wells won't bounce back at all, and the Angels will keep Bourjos for a Trout/Bourjos/Trumbo outfield. (Sam Miller)
2012-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think the Angels should do with Peter Bourjos? With Mike Trout up, he's slated to play once (maybe twice) a week, and is apparently not someone the Angels are interested in trading right now. Do you think being a 4th OF in Anaheim is any better for him (or the team) than sending him to SLC?
(riley b from a tour bus headed for San Diego)
I want to say that Vernon Wells will eventually be pushed aside, or platooned at DH with Morales, and Bourjos and Trout can play CF/LF together. But I also don't think Trumbo is super likely to stay at third, and so he'll start getting OF starts. It's not that I'm against trading Bourjos, it's just that I don't ever get the sense (from the rumors and stuff) that they would get anything close to full value for him. I mean, the Bourjos for John Lannan rumors in the offseason were nothing, they weren't tied to reality (I don't think), but the fact that people in the industry, writers, etc, though that it was even remotely realistic tells me that, yikes, it might be remotely realistic. And trading Peter Bourjos for anything close to John Lannan would be absolutely insane.

I guess I'd keep him up as a fourth outfielder for now. Playing time has a way of working itself out, especially on a team with as many struggling hitters/fielders as the Angels. (Sam Miller)
2011-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks Derek. What are the chances the Angels move Peter Bourjos to try and grab David Wright? It would leave a clear spot for Mike Trout in 2012 in the Angels' outfield.
(Keith from Manchester, CT)
It might make some sense on it's face, but I don't really see it happening. If the Mets don't bring back Reyes (and I don't think they should for what he'll likely go for), I think trading Wright makes a lot of sense. There's whispers that the team might wait until mid-season to do so, though, possibly so that he can rebuild his value a bit in a friendlier CitiField. There's no sure bet that the Angels would even go for that deal, though it seems quite likely they'll find a way to get Trout in their 2012 outfield. (Derek Carty)
2011-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite tater time tracking moment of 2011?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Hmm, good question. There weren't as many jaw-dropping moments in 2011 as there were in 2010, but the two I remember the most are: Derek Jeter's 3000th hit, when I had to run out of the session at SABR 41 to get better wifi in the hall to track his tater trot, and Peter Bourjos' "four-base single". Technically, Bourjos didn't hit a home run, but his "single" was just as much of an inside-the-parker as anyone else's. The fact that it allowed us to see his speed was just fantastic. I never would have thought I would see a 14.0 second trot (14.02 to be exact). (Larry Granillo)
