BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2019-06-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Real-life value, not fantasy, how would you rank the following over the next five years: Luis Castillo, Chris Paddack, Yusei Kikuchi, Mike Foltynewicz, Jake Odorizzi.
(bg from SEA)
Castillo and Paddack in their own tier, but interesting that both are dominating with basically two pitches. Then probably Folty, and uhhhh tough to decide between the bottom two. I still think Kikuchi stabilizes into a solid #3-type, and Odorizzi has been riding a hell of a lot of HR luck for a fly-ball pitcher. (Jon Hegglund)
2019-04-12 16:00:00 (link to chat)In a 15 team 5 x 5 with my hitters easily among the best in the league, I have limited options to improve my pitching. Jorge Lopez, Tyle Mahle, Jake Odorizzi. Any of these 3 worth adding for the season, not just streaming?
(Vic from Baltimore)
I don't love any of them, but I'd take the AL Central over the NL Central any day. I would go Lopez over Odorizzi at this point in their careers. I wouldn't hesitate to drop them for more attractive matchups, though. (Darius Austin)
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 20 team dynasty league would you trade Jake Odorizzi + for Eric Hosmer?
(Max from KC)
Depends on the plus. I just might though. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)what do you make of Jake Odorizzi's improved strikeouts?
(CD as in congradulatory diarrhea from MD)
I'm skeptical. He still doesn't really have a true out pitch. (Bret Sayre)
2014-04-04 12:00:00 (link to chat)What's your thought on Jake Odorizzi?
(Hihn from Uranus)
solid starter, not a star. If his changeup took a step forward he'll stick in the rotation, since the book on him has been "unable to put guys away"--a pitch like that can move the needle quickly for a pitcher like Odorizzi. (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chris Archer working hard on change-up, Jake Odorizzi learning how to throw Alex Cobb's split-finger change-up, Nate Karns improving on his change-up and Jake McGee adding a change-up w/ a possibility of a curveball to his repertoire. Which one of these guys will benefit most from adding the pitch that some people are obsessed/fixated/fascinated with? If Odorizzi does indeed learn and hone "The Thing"(split-change), would this take him from a bottom-of-rotation to a 2/3 guy because he'll finally have an out-pitch?
(jlarsen from Chicagoland Area)
a killer changeup can move the needle, sure. But some times a guy is just hoping to get a half-way decent one. In theory any big league pitcher who 'learns awesome new pitch' is going to get better, change cutter knucklecurve etc, but it feels to me like Odorizzi and Archer are going to benefit the most, since they are already potential quality starters and this could put them over the top. Karns could be helped out by having a better chance to stick in the rotation, but that's not as shiny as having a chacne to be a front-line guy. (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where does Jake Odorizzi fit in with TB over the next couple of years?
(Expo67 from Montrea;)
He's a good bet to find some innings at the back of that rotation. (Mark Anderson)
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)
2013-04-30 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)
2012-12-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I said something to somebody about Jake Odorizzi maybe getting kind of buried in Tampa due to their SP depth. The response from my listener was that in his mind Odorizzi is on par with Archer and behind only Price, Hellickson, and Moore in quality. "No way," sez I, "I would take Archer 50 times over Odorizzi, and also prefer Niemann, Cobb, Guerrieri, and perhaps Colome as well." Am I nuts?
(Chris from KC)
Nope. I'd take Archer over most back-end arms. Odorizzi is a quality arm with a high floor, but Archer has the potential to be an impact player, perhaps develop into a #2 starter with a late-inning arm as the backup plan. (Jason Parks)
2012-07-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Looking to add a pitcher with a possible call-up upcoming... suggestions?
(Josh Towers from Toronto)
Keep an eye on Jake Odorizzi, who started the Futures Game yesterday, if he's unowned in your league. He's done well in Triple-A, even though his fly-ball rate is a bit of a concern. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Derek- which rookies currently in the minors do you see having the biggest impact this season? Any do you see any of them as upgrades from say Cameron Maybin or Ted Lilly (bottom of my roster)? Thanks
(DanDaMan from SeaCliff)
At this point, it's pretty much all about opportunity. The Trouts and Harpers of the world are already here, and now it becomes a waiting game for a lot of guys. With Tabata getting demoted, that time could be now for a guy like Starling Marte. Some other names to consider: Wil Myers, Ryan Lavarnway (if traded out of Boston), Danny Hultzen, Jake Odorizzi, Jedd Gyorko, Johnny Giavotella, Mike Olt, Travis Snider. It's a gamble dropping an established big leaguer for one of those guys, but in a shallower league where they're just bench players anyway, gambling on some upside isn't a bad idea. (Derek Carty)
