DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)With all the injuries in the Nationals bullpen, is Aaron Barrett the heir apparent if Storen continues to struggle?
(Silverback38 from VA)
This is funny but I happened to be watching Barrett. He could definitely be their closer: 95 with that 86 MPH SL would work. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff, obviously the teams that perform the best during the regular season don't always win the WS. It's also obvious that whatever team wins the WS had some sort of luck involved. What variables would you contribute to the "luck" factor that can come into effect with such SSS?
(JSappington from IL)
In the post-season, it's just about execution. Does a guy make the pitch or not? Does he hit the pitcher's mistake or not? It's that simple in October because the talent levels are so even and the sample sizes are so small. This is why we put managerial decisions under such a microscope in October. In general, managerial decisions get overblown during the regular season, but when one pitch can make the difference between going home or advancing, the guy throwing that pitch makes a big difference. This is why it made no sense that Matt Williams was comfortable having his entire season come down to Aaron Barrett when Tyler Clippard was available. This is why letting Hunter Strickland continue to face lefties who can hit fastballs makes no sense. This is why giving up an out in the second inning with you two hitter is a bad idea. No one has any idea how a decision will turn out, but the manager has to put his team in the best position for the dice to come up in his favor. Luck matters, but you have to make sure that the odds are on your side as well. (Jeff Moore)
