DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Phil Nevin's breakout in 1999 was a shocker of Bautistan proportions, although possibly helped along by 4-ringed compounds. The Pads' biggest need over the next 6 weeks is _____________.
(Geoff Young's Biggest Fan from San Diego)
Resting Latos up before the playoffs. Jed Hoyer and company are intent on doing so, but it's the need. With the lead they have, they can afford to be skipping starts and giving him extra off days. With Chris Young throwing simulated games, there's an outside chance he can take some innings in September, and Corey Luebke might take some too once rosters expand. I'm curious to see how they handle the workload for Latos if they do end up in October. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)FYI, next couple of HOF classes are thin. Best candidates for 2011 are Bagwell, Raffy Palmeiro (zero shot), Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Larry Walker. Best candidates for 2012 are Bernie Williams, Tim Salmon and....I dunno, Carl Everett? Rick Helling?
(El Angelo from elangelo@gmail.com)
The 2012 class is thinner than prison gruel. Honestly there aren't five guys among this lot who would get more than a single paragraph out of me in the JAWS series:

Edgardo Alfonzo, Pedro Astacio, David Bell, Jeromy Burnitz, Vinny Castilla, Scott Erickson, Carl Everett, Jeff Fassero, Alex S. Gonzalez, Danny Graves, Rick Helling, Dustin Hermanson, Jose Hernandez, Brian Jordan, Matt Lawton, Javy Lopez, Bill Mueller, Terry Mulholland, Jeff Nelson, Phil Nevin, Brad Radke, Joe Randa, Tim Salmon, Ruben Sierra, Jose Vizcaino, Bernie Williams, Eric Young (Jay Jaffe)
2008-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Okay Will, last year you said, on numerous occasions, and in spite of his struggles in '06, that Josh Beckett would be competing for the Cy Young in '07. He very nearly won it. Who's your man in '08?
(Ed from Chicago)
Not quite Phil Nevin, but I'll take it. Beckett was an easy one because he had a good-to-dominant team that was going to allow him to put up big win totals. Same with Sabathia. Give me Beckett or Schilling in the AL with a side order of Verlander. The NL is a lot tougher since there's no dominant teams and the easy picks -- Zambrano, Hamels, Sheets - have big questions. I'll take Dan Haren. (Will Carroll)

2010-07-13 16:30:00All-Star GameChristina and Steve, have you ever looked at the Padres career home run leaders? I believe Tony Gwynn is in the top five. I has a sad.

At least if Adrian sticks around he'll end up #1 eventually. And old friends like Ryan Klesko and Phil Nevin are also amongst the leaders. (Marc Normandin)
