2016-05-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)A recent episode of EW inspired my Crazy Idea of the Week. The discussion about how teams aren't necessarily incentivized to create juggernaut teams, but rather to win the division and roll the dice in the postseason got me thinking. Should the Cubs, who have the makings of a juggernaut on their hands, switch to a 6 man rotation to preserve the health of their arms until October? Hammel has had consistent struggles in the second half and Arrieta has said that he felt worn down in the playoffs in 2015. If the Cubs manage to continue this pace through the end of May, should they consider adding Adam Warren to their rotation and focus on maximizing their chances in the postseason?
(Will from Gainesville)
Well, yes. They probably should. I haven't seen (or don't remember) a great study on how much the fatigue of a long season affects pitching in October, but it seems very intuitive that every inning you've thrown makes you a little bit worse by the 230th or 250th. So I support this idea, with two possible exceptions:

1) If the Cubs have some chance at doing something heroic (like winning 117 games; pretty much just that. Maybe a winning streak, maybe personal achievements), they should. I've been unable to convince any of my Bay Area friends that the Warriors winning 73 was a much bigger deal than them potentially winning this year's title, but I feel that way, and if the Cubs can chase 117 without doing any real damage to their playoff chances I'd say they should; 2) if the Cubs have some reason to believe that costing Jake Arrieta a Cy Young award, or Jon Lester 20 wins, or something along those lines, would lead to great unhappiness, it'd be worth listening to those guys. But I wouldn't just assume either of those things would lead to great unhappiness, even if we're all excessively paranoid about unhappy athletes. (Sam Miller)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is it time to move on from Adam Warren?
(Alex from Austin)
Hey, Austin, the tone of this question is leading and Adam and I don't appreciate it. That being said, if he's in your fantasy rotation, I understand wanting to see other pitchers for awhile. The Yankees don't seem to have extra starters at the moment, so he's not getting the boot there just yet. He hasn't been great, especially third time through the order, but he's keeping New York in games for the most part. (Nick Shlain)
2012-06-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Losing Pettite and CC within hours of each other cut like a knife to quote Bryan Adams. Besides Garcia, who else can help in the rotation?
(Craig from VA)
First Bryan Adams reference on my watch - can't believe I avoided it until now given that the guy's music was an inescapable fungus during my high school years.

I wrote about the Yankees' situation at length at SI: http://mlb.si.com/2012/06/27/losses-of-sabathia-and-pettitte-threaten-to-derail-yankees-2/

Short version is that both Adam Warren, who's starting tonight, and David Phelps, who briefly took over Garcia's spot before Pettitte joined the club, can provide some help. The Yankees have a month to see what they can do before entering the trade market, and the resources to get a deal done if need be. They'll be OK, I think. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any shot Adam Warren is actually better than guys like Gordon, Mitre, Moseley, or whatever other retreads the Yanks have found in the last few seasons? Or is that pretty much his ceiling?
(Mark from NJ)
He's a bit better than all of them, and that's his ceiling. (Kevin Goldstein)
