DateQuestionAnswer
2019-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Shane Greene has had a great first half of the season and seems like he would be a highly in demand closer at the deadline, similar to the way Aroldis Chapman has been in the past. Why does he not seem to be a high priority for teams like ATL, COL, PHI, etc?
(Craig from Chicago)
This is a great question! I think part of it simply boils down to Greene having nowhere near the name recognition (even amongst ardent fans) of many great relievers. Another is that Greene has really only broken out this season, after years of being a good, but closer to league-average than great, reliever. Greene is controlled through '21, so the Tigers can hold if they don't get a good offer, but they risk this year proving an outlier and losing out on a potentially higher return. I think Greene is probably one of the top five or ten most likely guys to be dealt. (Ginny Searle)
2019-07-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)If Shane Greene gets traded, do you anticipate him being a closer on new team, or pitching in a middle relief role?
(Craig from Chicago )
So usually the way this works is a top team with a good closer brings him in to be a high end setup dude. Competing eams don't want to disrupt their veteran pens that much. He wouldn't close over Jansen in LA, Chapman in NY, or Osuna in HOU. Boston probably should trade for him to close, but I don't know if they have the prospect pieces. Generally I would guess he ends up an eighth inning guy somewhere if he's dealt. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-04-10 21:00:00 (link to chat)You gotta love April baseball...Cubs fans and Red Sox fans are panicking. Mariners fans are thinking playoffs. Shane Greene is on pace for 100 saves. Can't wait to see what comes from the next 10 days!
(Buddy from Peoria, IL)
You aren't kidding, Buddy. I think Cubs fans ... should maybe panic a little, and I'm not just saying that because of PECOTA. That division is rough and their pitching staff has neither reinforcements on the way, nor a magical reverse aging potion (to my knowledge). The Red Sox should be worried about Chris Sale, but there isn't a whole lot else that has happened that a larger sample can't cure. Unfortunately, the same might be said for the Mariners and their current obliviousness to the step-back year that was planned. (Zach Crizer)
2019-03-08 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think is the breakout closer this year. Looking for someone who isn't currently in the role but could take over and thrive.
(Paula from Colorado)
There are a ton of potential split closers this season as teams become more comfortable with a flexible approach. I like Jace Fry long term, but he's behind Colome and Herrera, presumably. Being behind two veterans makes his chance a long shot in 2019. If you like veteran throwbacks, Melancon could take over for Will Smith if there's an injury. And Ottavino would be the logical choice behind Aroldis given the Yanks skipped over Betances last time they had the chance. Keone Kela could get a shot if Pittsburgh trades away their closer like always every few years. But my top choice right now is Joe Jimenez. Shane Greene is not a secure option in Detroit, so nab Jimenez while you still can. (Kevin Jebens)
2019-03-08 16:00:00 (link to chat)In an AL-only 5x5 roto keeper league, how do you feel about Givens at $5 and Shane Greene at $10? Most of what I hear is down on them, but I think its all about context and of course, whether they can keep their jobs.
(bkopman from Toronto)
I understand it's AL-only, but those two are maybe my least favorite options for closer. Definitely prefer Givens in a vacuum, and the fact that he's less expensive helps. Not many options behind him, whereas Greene has Jimenez waiting in the wings. If you only need one, Givens. If you need two... Givens. (Kevin Jebens)
2019-02-05 17:00:00 (link to chat)How long does Shane Greene hold onto the closer job in Detroit?
(Mr. Fister from Arlington)
until he blows a few saves in a row, so I'm guessing not that long (Rob Arthur)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty question: Would you trade Derek Hill for Shane Greene? I'm rebuilding so I would lean Hill but I also have no pitching... Thanks!
(Alex from Mississippi)
I'd keep Hill here and see if you can get something better. Especially if you're in a rebuild. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Alex Wood, Shane Greene or Joe Kelly?
(Rocko from Modern Life)
Wood (Nick Shlain)
2015-04-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Shane Greene, Jesse Hahn, TJ House, Rubby DeLaRosa, Anthony DeScalafani, Jimmy Nelson, Zach McAllister, Trevor Bauer. If one of these is a top 20 pitcher this year, who is it?
(Matt from NJ)
Gimme Bauer in that scenario. It assumes a huge leap in development, but he has the tools to make that dream a possibility. I also like the upsides of Rubby, Hahn, and Desclafani. (Doug Thorburn)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Kyle Hendricks worth owning in the deepest of leagues? What about Shane Greene? Also whose future do you like better in rate leagues with K/9 Steven Matz or Jake Thompson
(John from Missurah)
Oh yes. In deep leagues you need innings and he will give innings as the Cubs have no SPs. Same with Greene. I prefer Thompson. (Mauricio Rubio)
