DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Josh Rutledge at this point? Is his being sent down an indication that he's never going be a starter again, or an opportunity for him to get playing time and return in a significant role?
(gerrybraun from San Diego)
He's had a bizarre career arc. When he first came up, the expectation was he'd be a Marco Scutaro type. Then he went on that power surge and he hasn't been good since. He's a second baseman more than a shortstop, so he's gotta hit to stick. I'm not optimistic he'll regain his former luster. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any chance San Francisco looks to Jeff Keppinger to fill the hole at 2B if they are unable to re-sign Marco Scutaro?
(CoachFish35 from SoCal)
A lot of Marco Scutaro- and Jeff Keppinger-related questions in the queue, so I'll kill all of those birds with CoachFish35's stone. As I said earlier in the chat, I think the Giants will end up re-signing Scutaro, but I'm not sure about Keppinger as a fallback. Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reported earlier this morning that the Yankees are in hot pursuit of Keppinger, and I think he fits better in a platoon/utility role than as an everyday second baseman.

One name to keep an eye on as an alternative for the Giants is Hiroyuki Nakajima. The SF Chronicle' John Shea tweeted yesterday that the Giants are in contact with his representatives in case Scutaro heads elsewhere: https://twitter.com/JohnSheaHey/status/275761688098271232. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Marco Scutaro ends up resigning with the Giants?
(fish filet from SF)
I'll use this to provide an update from Scutaro, courtesy of Buster Olney: https://twitter.com/Buster_ESPN/status/276054769880145920. He reiterated that the Giants are still the favorites, and if the bidding has in fact reached three years, $24 million, I'd expect a decision to come soon. (Daniel Rathman)
2009-12-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)It seems that even in the worst non injury scenario as oar as performance is concerned Scutaro is destined to be the Red Sox's best, or at least most steady all around SS since Nomar, how much of a premium will the Sox be paying for him since their leverage seems limited, and how much does this reflect on the Yankees luck with a steady and durable Jeter in comparison?
(Keith C from Naugatuck, CT)
I don't think the Sox will be paying a premium. Even if he's going to be good, he's still Marco Scutaro.

As for part two, the Red Sox have won more World Series since Nomar was traded than the Yanks have with Jeter during the same time period. That doesn't really mean anything, I just wanted to say it, so please no Jeter Defense Force reactions, thanks. (Marc Normandin)
2009-12-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why shouldn't the Yanks overpay Scutaro to be their utility just to do harm to the Sox? Scutaro gets to play all over the field, get overpaid (say $4-5 a year), and the chance at a ring. If you noticed a team without a 2B going into the end of your draft next year, you'd surely take Kendrick and Weeks before he could. I know I would.
(Wade from Mass)
Because it's Marco Scutaro, and they have their own needs they need to fill. I'm not saying the Sox/Yanks never purposely pluck players from the others clutches just to be that way, but I think the Yanks have their own things to consider before they start messing with Boston's plans. (Marc Normandin)
2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you were in charge of the Blue Jays, what would be the 3 best moves you could make this winter?
(dtwhite from Toronto)
1) Trade Halladay for a Teixeira package, built around the best shortstop I can get.

2) Convince the Mets to take Vernon Wells for no talent back.

3) Avoid the temptation to sign Marco Scutaro to a three-year deal. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi John. Thanks for answering my question. Do you think Toronto is going to move Marco Scutaro?
(Kent from MN)
Only if they get something for him because there is a school of thought in the organization that they would like to re-sign him to a multi-year deal. (John Perrotto)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)One subject that nearly everone has been silent about, sort of like the unspoken rule about not mentioning a no-hitter in progress, is AARON HILL. And yes the capitals are warranted by now no?
(WilliamWilde from Boston, MA)
Hill's the guy off to a hot start in the Jays' lineup worth getting excited about, not simply because of the back story of coming back from his concussion, but because he looked good before the injury, and we can get excited about what he might grow up to be. (Insert standard observations that Lyle Overbay and Marco Scutaro will go back to being Lyle Overbay and Marco Scutaro here.) (Christina Kahrl)
