2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)if huston street is out for an extended time, who will close for the Rox, Morales or Betancourt, or who else..Casey Weathers?
(kidzero from denver)
I'd love to see what Morales could do, but I sort of expect that if he doesn't become the hot hand, Betancourt would be the pitcher who gets the most opportunities in such a scenario. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, would you trade the Rockies top 11 prospects for Longoria and Heyward? I ask because the Rox get a lot of credit for developing their farm system, but they obviously missed big on these two (Greg Reynolds/Casey Weathers). What skill is better - consistent approach or hitting home runs in the draft/LA? Thanks.
(Dan from Denver)
I think the Rockies generally deserve a lot of credit for their drafting and player development, but that does not take away from the massive mistake they took in taking Reynolds, nor does it excuse some of the ridiculous reasons for the selection. I at least think they've gotten past it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)BA was really bullish on Bosox prospect Nick Hagadone for next year, despite his TJ surgery this year. Have we really reached the point where a major injury/surgery like that can be viewed as just a set-back? It seems like TJ surgery has come a long way in a short time; are there any other procedures that look to make the same progress?
(Rob from Brighton)
I dont know much about Hagadone, but we just had Casey Weathers on the Top 11 BPR and he's coming off very recent TJ. It's predictable, so I think it doesn't hurt someone's stock as much as something unpredictable would. Other procedures are getting better and quicker across the board. Without getting political, the idea that the Obama administration is going to open up stem cell research could be the biggest change. I did an article for Popular Science recently and in talking about the future of sports medicine, damn near every answer started with 'stem cells.' (Will Carroll)
2008-11-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)I think i heard somewhere that Casey Weathers is out for the season. But doesn't the combination of Weathers and Corpas mean that street shouldn't spend alot of time shopping for a house in Denver?
(Basicslop from Albuquerque)
Weathers had a TJ, so yes, no '09 for him. I do think the Rockies will look to flip street, but at the same time, he's not a closer, and shouldn't be one again. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)"proper humeral retroversion"...just how I would phrase it!! Could the lack of pitching growing up be a contributing cause to a guy like Casey Weathers getting hurt who was a position player and switched to relief work relatively late?
(Adam from Denver)
Good question. Tim Kremchek pointed out to me the high incidence of TJ in converted pitchers, so yeah, that could be part of it. So, Jose Arredondo, I'm looking at you. (Will Carroll)
2008-05-05 12:30:00 (link to chat)Is there any chance that Casey Weathers or Chris Perez will be saving games this year for the Rockies and Cardinals, respectively?
(uptick from st. louis)
Well, if there are injuries at the back end of those bullpens, then yes, it could happen. However, I think the Cardinals would give their job to McClellan right now, and they should. He looks fantastic. Weathers might have the better chance, but I wouldn't start looking for him in your fantasy leagues. It's a long shot. (Bryan Smith)
2008-04-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)I don't hear about Casey Weathers much... is he going to be a good play this year? Is he the nearterm successor to Corpas and if not, why draft a reliever in the first round?
(yov from Co. Springs)
He's definitely seen as the closer of the future for the Rockies, and he's starting his first full season in Double-A, so he's expected to move quickly. That's why you draft a reliever in the first round, to be a closer, and quickly. (Kevin Goldstein)
