DateQuestionAnswer
2018-12-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who's your surprise contender for next year a la the Oakland A's of 2018? I understand the offseason is in its larval phase, so perhaps this answer could serve as a prediction about that as well.
(nschaef from NYC)
I did not see the A's coming in 2018 (which was documented on the DFA Podcast here at the site), so I *may* not be the right person to ask. Now, if you ask me the Athletics were a bit of a one-hit wonder; I don't expect them to be quite as good in 2019 as they were last year ... so is there another team that could have a "pop-up" season people don't see coming? I think there is: the Chicago White Sox. Now, let me preface this by saying I absolutely DO NOT think the White Sox are a playoff team this year, just like how I didn't think the Athletics were a playoff team last year. But the Sox do have enough young impactful talent to make a run if everything goes right, and they'll be buoyed by the fact that two of the other teams in the division are built out of paper-maché, and both the Twins and the Indians have either plateaued or gotten worse (so far). The White Sox would need to make a couple of moves to build up the 2019 team with veterans, but I actually kinda loved the Alex Colome trade for them. Three more small moves like that and we can start talking. (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Where would Seth Lugo be on a top 100 if he didn't lose his prospect eligibility? Further, Does Lugo, Kevin Plawecki and Gabriel Ynoa give TB enough value for Alex Colome?
(Erik from LA)
Probably off it because of age and health. That hypothetical trade sounds quite fair for Colome, but I also suspect the Mets may just drop Lugo into that role themselves. (Jarrett Seidler)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Any advice on how to successfully tank in dynasty without pissing anyone off? I think I've got the second part down, considering once I decided to rebuild four weeks ago I've gone undefeated thanks to streaming Alex Colome, Despaigne, Severino Gonzalez, Kelly, and others with the expectation that they would suck and have them end up doing great.
(Patrick from NJ)
I am terrible at tanking without pissing people off. In terms of your stream options I'd have to see the opponents but Colome and Despaigne aren't terrible stream options for winning so maybe, stream worse? (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Does Chase Whitley have middle of the rotation upside?
(John from CT)
Not for me. He's pitched two good games so far and did a good job keeping the Jays off balance last night, but his fastball still topped out at 92 mph and his secondary offerings aren't exceptional. Whitley has a thankless job as the extra starter, I expect him to do what he did last year where he was fine as a replacement starter for 4-5 weeks and then falls apart.

I mentioned him briefly in my column today, I prefer Alex Colome in AL-Only leagues: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=26257 (Nick Shlain)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Do you prefer Alex Colome or Nate Karns or Burch Smith as a starter?
(Goseman from Detroit)
I'll take Colome out of that trio. (Mark Anderson)
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)On a dynasty/points team how would you rank these guys these in 2015 which would you keep if one had to go? Jarred Cosart, McHugh, Marco Gonzales, Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, Alex Colome, Daniel Norris Mark Appel,
(OB1KENOBI from Tampa)
I'd cut Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any of these guys going to wind up more than back-end fodder? Sean Nolin, Robbie Erlin, Jimmy Nelson, Alex Wood, Oberholtzer, Holmberg, Taylor Jordan, Maurer, Enny Romero, Alex Colome.
(TheKernel from Pasadena)
Don't sleep on Enny Romero. I think there is a better chance of him providing impact in the bullpen, but I've been working on the Rays system lately and scouts really like this kid's stuff; I've seen it several times myself, so I can definitely appreciate a mid-90s FB and hard breaking ball from a southpaw. The command concerns, but if he can develop into an effectively wild type, he has the stuff to pitch above the middle-of-a-rotation. Projection is #2/3 type, but I think a late-innings arm is the realistic role. (Jason Parks)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Between Alex Colome, Jake Odorizzi, and Enny Romero who has the best chance to make the ML rotation this year?
(Reed from OKC)
Odorizzi, but in terms of ceiling, I'd take both Romero and Colome. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)How much have you seen of Alex Colome? Do you think he could fill a rotation slot if David Price is traded or should the Rays transition him to the pen?
(Jack from FL)
I really like Colome. He has a starter's repertoire and the mechanics to profile in the rotation. The only question is pitch command, as his timing and momentum can be inconsistent at times. The Rays have the luxury of pitching depth, so they can be patient as Colome refines his game. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Paul, please list a few pitchers that could have that Kris Medlen like run in the 2nd half. And maybe some bullpen arms that if they move into a starting role, could have real value in mixed leagues. Oh and hello Curtis!
(andtinez from Houston)
Franklin Morales (Rubby or Webster, too, but neither is currently in their pen) and Tony Cingrani (obv, but he fits the model now) are currently in pens. Guys who could just make a big run who aren't currently in a rotation: Erasmo Ramirez, Trevor Rosenthal (prob more 2014 if he's gonna be an SP again), Alex Colome, and Tim Stauffer. http://pauls.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/hiandrew.jpg (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)You've previously mentioned Chris Arhcer, Alex Colome and Alex Torres as "tweener" types whose future in the major leagues are late-inning relievers. Now that all three have made major league starts with improved secondary offerings, has your view on their ML future changed in any way?
(Mark from DC)
Well, Archer is a starting pitcher for me, a 2/3 type who's probably more of a no. 3 because of the command. The stuff is top of the line, though. There's always that chance he ends up in the bullpen because of the two wipeout pitches, but I do believe in Archer as a starter. Colome and Torres are still relievers for me, but they can be good ones. Whatever the Rays have done with Torres is working, as most scouts I was speaking to had written him off by the end of last season. It's a plus fastball and it's an absolutely nasty changeup. An Alex Torres throwing strikes is a good big league reliever. I'll give Colome a slight more chance to start, but still think that's a seventh- or eighth-inning type of arm. (Jason Cole)
2013-04-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Why is Chris Archer getting so much more love than his teammate Jake Odorizzi? Odorizzi is younger and pitching better at the same level. Sure, Archer has that slider, but when it comes to getting that next rotation spot, shouldn't results matter? And age vs level? It's not like Odorizzi is a scrub.
(Apats from Parts Unknown)
Odorizzi is a solid prospect as well, no doubt. We're not talking about polished versus raw here, though, since Odorizzi needs to work on his command as well. It's hard to draw conclusions based solely on minor-league stats, especially with pitchers. If Archer is working on his changeup and command and pitching worse than he would otherwise how much do you hold that against him? I don't know the answer, just throwing it out there. (That Durham rotation also features a resurgent Alex Torres and a reworked Alex Colome.) (R.J. Anderson)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Would Alex Colome have a better shot to stick in the rotation and get more buzz in an org that wasn't so deep in pitching? Back end of the bullpen arm or just a 7th/8th guy at best?
(Jon from Fla)
I think he's a 7/8 type, but that's not a bad thing. I don't see him as a long-term starter. I'm sure he would get more buzz in a weaker system or an org that promotes arms more aggressively. (Jason Parks)
