DateQuestionAnswer
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Dodgers do this winter to patch up their rotation on a shoestring budget? Kuroda, Lilly, Padilla are all free agents, and the team needs to find innings to prevent Kershaw and Billingsley from being worked to death.
(The Duke of Flatbush from Brooklyn)
I think they'll sign Lilly and then try to patch the No. 4 starter spot with an inexpensive free agent then give the No. 5 spot to John Ely or someone of his ilk and cross your fingers. I just can't figure whey they never gave James McDonald a shot. (John Perrotto)
2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay Who do you see the Dodgers settling on for the 4th and 5th spots in the rotation? Elbert hasn't exactly been lighting it up for the Isotopes, is he still a consideration? Would Washburn be that much of an improvement over what they already have?
(JoeR from Upstate)
Well, I'd assume that if Vicente Padilla returns he'll get first crack at reclaiming the fourth spot, and it sounds like John Ely has earned himself a longer look in the rotation based upon his past two starts. Scott Elbert hasn't pitched very well down in Albuturkey, but perhaps later this summer he'll round into shape, him or Josh Lindblom. Other than salty veteran goodness of the kind Joe Torre craves, I don't think Washburn would bring that much of an improvement, particularly given that he's been sitting on his derriere. For that kind of trouble, I wonder about the possibility of a Pedro Martinez return to Chavez Ravine. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jay Could you rank the following pitchers going forward: Bud Norris, Kenshin Kawakami, John Ely and Chris Narveson. Thanks
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
Except for Ely, they're all sporting pretty high ERAs at the moment. Narveson has shown he can can miss bats, which is pretty handy for a lefty, Kawakami and Norris showed they belonged at the major league level last year. Ely certainly didn't register as the type of stopper he's been in the past two outings, so I worry that his success may be more short-lived. (Jay Jaffe)
