DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Remember when Deolis Guerra was the jewel of the Santana trade? Will there come a day when Twins fans see him on the mound and feel pretty good about that deal?
(cooldude from Mpls)
No, that day will not come. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Johan Santana? I find the thought of his career prospects at this point very depressing.
(Will from Mactaquac)
So do I. The declining velocity and strikeout rate didn't bode well even before we knew about the injury. I'm not sure whether identifying a possible cause for that performance improves his outlook at all, considering the injury, but either way, things don't look great, and that's a shame.

I'm tempted to applaud Brian Cashman for holding onto his prospects and signing Sabathia instead, but then again, the Mets got Santana for Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber, and Kevin Mulvey (okay, and Deolis Guerra). The money hurts more. (Ben Lindbergh)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)For overall career value, this point on, who would you rather have Edinson Volquez or a pitching prospect ranked around 80th on Goldstein's top 100 list next year? Neither will likely pitch next year, both have some risk of development, both have some upside. I guess the question boils down to how much you believe that Edinson can regain his status from the injury. I am in a strat league, I could either keep Volquez or cut him and draft someone in the 80th range on Goldstein's next list.
(LindInMoskva from DC)
Volquez will miss 2010, but most pitchers come back from TJ to previous level. That's a major league pitcher with some upside. He'll be 28. Looking back to Goldstein's 2008 list (not 2009), guys at that level are Deolis Guerra, Radhames Liz, Max Scherzer, Jair Jurrjens, Aaron Poreda, and Greg Reynolds. Even with a year of development, we're looking at two guys who have established themselves at the MLB level, plus Poreda who's an upside guy. I'd probably take Poreda and Jurrjens over Volquez right now, Scherzer's a toss up, but then you have to figure out the "bust risk." Which of those guys would I have picked LAST year and am I confident that I can pick correctly? Kevin's an expert and had Poreda under Liz ... I think that bust risk is huge, so I'd almost always go with the guy I know can pitch. (Will Carroll)
2008-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Kevin, could you tell me what's wrong with Deolis Guerra?
(Izzy from DC)
Just has never thrown as hard as advertised. Changeup is very good, I find it hard to project him as more than a back-end rotation guy at this point. Unimpressed. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-06-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)Like Triunfel, Deolis Guerra would also be a guy eligible for this draft. Where would you put him? Are you a believer?
(Sacha from St. Paul)
Late first -- like him, don't love him. Wake me up when he throws as hard as was initially advertised. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-05-05 12:30:00 (link to chat)Did the Mets make a mistake in trading Deolis Guerra in the Santana deal and not Pelfrey (whom I'm sure the Twins would've taken instead)?
(Jon from NY)
No, I don't think that's fair. We have to look at this trade from a winter perspective, when the door on Pelfrey was really starting to close. Guerra has some fabulous potential, and given his youth, his projection is better than Pelrey's. That said, could you have convinced the Mets for Pelfrey over Mulvey? Without an understanding of the negotiation it's impossible to guess, and I'd also bet the Twins wanted a surer bet like Mulvey rather than three wild cards in Gomez, Guerra and Pelfrey. (Bryan Smith)
