BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)Which two baseball player active or not would you like to see participate in a bowling competition?
(J-Peso from New Jersey)
Chad Bradford would probably dominate. Josh Collmenter would be fun to watch bowl if forced to bowl from his ridiculously high arm slot. (Cespedes Family BBQ)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)Does Fiers lack of velocity not scare you off at all? Reminds me a little bit of the flukey Josh Collmenter season.
(Dave from Milwaukee)
I'm not scared off. He works the zone well and changes speeds effectively. Collmenter had a horrible April last year but was very effective after that. (Jason Collette)
2012-04-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)do you expect Bauer to get called up by June 1st or sooner?
(Pablo from NJ)
The walks are a concern with Trevor Bauer, because they spike his pitch count early and prevent him from going deep into games. He has the stuff to miss bats in the majors right now, and I would not be surprised if he could already outpitch Josh Collmenter, but it's worth giving him some time in Double-A to work on the control. I do think we'll either see Bauer or his teammate Tyler Skaggs by June 1. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)When do we see Bauer hit the bigs?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
Second favorite Jeff Mathis story is when I accidentally submitted that three times.

I hate to just assume this for every top prospect, but I assume he's up in late June like the rest of 'em. And Wade Miley gets the starts when Joe Saunders or Josh Collmenter goes down early. (Sam Miller)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)NL only. Who has a better season Chad Billingsley, Kyle Lohse, Clayton Richard, Josh Collmenter? Looking to find a late round value.
(will.I.ain't from Holding pattern)
Billingsley, for upside and floor. (Sam Miller)
2012-02-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)How long can Josh Collmenter's deceptive delivery be effective? Is his pure stuff below average?
(Adam from LA)
I expect a significant regression in 2012. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-02-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Be nice to Josh Collmenter. It's his birthday. Speaking of deception, what about Edwin Carl ? Could he ever make it to the big leagues ?
(Jordan from DC)
Whatever. I once had a divorce hearing on my birthday. Carl is awfully fun to watch, but I don't think it's going to work unless he does something else with his fastball in terms of maybe cutting it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-01-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Besides a deception guy like Josh Collmenter, are there other types of pitchers that are more likely to have immediate success in the majors but can't sustain it? Is there a certain type of pitch that can be more effective early in a career, but figured out after awhile?
(JR from New Hampshire)
Really any kind of trick guy. Deception, best pitch is a changeup, etc. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Based on pure stuff/dominance/command (whatever strikes you), which pitchers are you most looking forward to watching this postseason?
(Lucas Apostoleris from Amherst, MA)
Kenley Jansen is the guy that has piqued my interest most recently, but I'll have all offseason to look at him, I suppose.

Of the pitchers who look playoff-bound, Craig Kimbrel is just amazing. I'm curious about Verlander's BABIP this year. Doug Fister is an interesting story. I've wanted to look at Alexi Ogando's switch to the rotation. Koji Uehara fascinates me, with his splitter and high flyball/popup rate. Josh Collmenter and Ian Kennedy are interesting.

Of course there's no way I'll end up analyzing all or even most of those guys, but those are a few names who grab my attention. (Mike Fast)
2011-07-21 16:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat, Jason. Please rank the folowing SPs for the rest of the season (head-to-head, standard 5x5 cats): Colby Lewis, Jeff Niemann, Carlos Carrasco, and Josh Collmenter.
(Dennis from LA)
Lewis, Carrasco, Niemann, Collmenter (can't stay this lucky) (Jason Collette)
