2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any free agents with solid fantasy value out there? Jermaine Dye, Elijah Dukes, Pedro, am I forgetting somebody?
(dangor from New York)
John Smoltz, at least as a reliever, is somebody who can help if he's so inclined, though I guess he's content to go the broadcast route for the moment. A healthy Jarrod Washburn can certainly sponge up a useful number of innings. David Weathers is a handy reliever to have around even at his age. Carlos Delgado might still have something left once he recovers from hip surgery. Gary Sheffield is still a badass who can be a useful bench bat if so inclined, and Joe Crede can pick it at the hot corner if his back is right. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Okay, so I will be the 5,786th person to ask this: Chamberlain or Gaudin for Game 4 of the (possible) ALCS? I still say Chamberlain as I can see him handling anyone on his day.
(jschmeagol from college park, md)
Well, I choose Chamberlain, in part because the Yankees have a fair amount of effective relievers, so Chamberlain wouldn't be a high-leverage guy. If this were the Phillies, it'd be different.

Mostly, I think the debate is silly. The #4 guy starts once a series, throws maybe six innings, usually less. The 1996 Yankees used...what was it, Kenny Rogers?...three times, got no good starts and won the World Series. David Weathers seemed to pitch great in all three games. Hell, with the additional off days, you should probably use a three-man rotation, anyway. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)If the Reds aren't going to go after anyone, so they instead become sellers, and if so, whom do they shop and what do they look for in return? Also, going to France this week--really just Paris and Normandy. Been to Les Invalides before, but what else would you recommend seeing? Thanks!
(Uncle Rhett from Dayton, OH)
Encarnacion's injury issues make it hard to flip him, but the questions over his ultimate upside and whether he should play third for anybody should encourage the shopping of him. They could probably peddle Bronson Arroyo to a starter-needy near-contender for something of value, and I'd be willing to bundle David Weathers and Arthur Lee Rhodes if they wanted to avoid making early-October plans.

As for France, if you want to see a hint at what Tolkien described as Mordor, and want a general freak-out between the creepy vibe (not just at the Ossuary), go to Verdun. Knocking around the Ardennes is interesting. I'd also make a trip to Brussels, because the lay of the land at Waterloo is quite instructive (even with the Lions' Mound ruining one side of it), and the various Royal Museums in town are excellent, especially the King's collection of Flemish masters.
