DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)Will any of the following high K, high heartburn for their owner starters figure it out and finish strong? Nathan Karns, Nathan Eovaldi, Wei-Yen Chen, and Archie Bradley
(Big Jake from McCandles, TX)
Bradley is the best bet due to his young age - he could still figure a thing or two out and take a big step forward. He's also the biggest risk from this group. Eovaldi is frustrating since the premium velocity is there but the results rarely match the radar gun readings. Not sure why you included Chen as a high-K guy since he's posted a sub-8 K/9 every season since he came to the US. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think yankees lineup is good enough for playoff push? Is shelby miller even good? Can cano bounce back/ why are the mariners so wack?
(Neil Prasad from San Fransisco)
1) The lineup won't have to be that good if the rotation reaches its full potential. I still haven't sold all my "Nathan Eovaldi will one day finish in the top 5 in Cy Young Voting" stock options yet.
2) Yes.
3) Yes, and the Mariners will probably finish at least at .500, and in a division that didn't have two, maybe three other good teams, depending on how you feel about the Angels, they'd be a dark horse Wild Card candidate. (Michael Baumann)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)What is your take on Nathan Eovaldi? I thought he was going to make big strides this year, and I have not seen it at all.
(Frank from Florida)
Craig Goldstein wrote a really good article on him earlier in the year, you can read it here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=23568

Ultimately the adjustments that he made were adjusted to in my mind and I don't think he has the ability to make a huge leap forward. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nathan Eovaldi has looked really solid so far this season. Has he finally turned it around, even though he still really only has the 1 pitch, or is he just really lucky?
(Cole from Texas)
I disagree that he has just one pitch. He was one of my absolute favorites coming into the season. His slider is great and the curveball is coming on, too. He's one of the hardest throwers in the game and he's really added consistency to his game this year, too (Paul Sporer)
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you could add a 6-grade pitch to any pitcher's repetoire in baseball, who would have the biggest improvement as a result? Ideally, I'd like to know the pitch and the pitcher who would be the happiest marriage.
(Steve from Philly)
Such a cool question, Steve.

There are so many guys who could be nuts with a 6-grade changeup. My favorite example is Jordan Zimmermann, who is already there with command of the fastball and both breaking pitches. Give him a cambio and he could be deadly.

Nathan Eovaldi would probably see the greatest gain from adding a changeup, and he was working on refining his change in the off-season, so it will be interesting to see how that pitch develops.

Oh, and can you imagine what Kershaw could do with a 6 CH? (Doug Thorburn)
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which young power arm will take the MLB by storm this summer?
(Dan from VA)
Nathan Eovaldi.

Ok, we have a second meme #EovaldiEvolution (Doug Thorburn)
2014-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best dynasty league keeper: Lance Lynn or Nathan Eovaldi? Why?
(cracker73 from Florida)
That's tough. I really like both. Lynn is more actualized, but Eovaldi has the higher ceiling. I think I'd lean toward the latter because of that ceiling. (Paul Sporer)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)I like Nathan Eovaldi's fast ball. Does he ever develop the rest of his repotoire and find success?
(CaptnAmerca from Dunedin, FL)
At this point I don't see it happening. The fastball is always going to be the main attraction. (Mark Anderson)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nathan Eovaldi.Been watching all his august-sptember starts and happen to think he's very much under-the-radar.What's your opinion ?
(Spirou from Montreal)
He's waaaay under the radar. He was someone I recommended as a spot starter a decent bit late last year. Caught some of his duds, but got the gems, too. Good eye, Spirou, he is one to pay attention to for deeper league players. (Paul Sporer)
