BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chances that German takes over the closer role from Farnsworth this year?
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
It's possible. But they might try Todd Jones and Mike Henneman first. (Paul Sporer)
2012-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Help me out. Doug Jones is the one who __________ while Todd Jones is the one who ____________.
(Winnie from Napa Valley)
Doug has the mullet and Todd has the awesome horseshow 'stache. Unfortunately there's no easy mnemonic device to keep that straight. Sorry! (Ian Miller)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dave Dombrowski has also made some questionable free agent deals with relievers: Troy Percival - $12M for 2 years when his K/IP rate was in freefall Todd Jones - over $17M for 3 years when he was never consistently great On the other hand, besides letting Lyon go, he's let others sign Jamie Walker and Fernando Rodney to long term deals. At least he doesn't tend to reward middle relievers with multi-year deals.
(Michael from Detroit, MI)
So much about relievers is guess-work. Both Percival and Jones were grasping at closers, and I understand the desperation if not the choices. At least he was aiming at the good part of the bullpen, not, as you said, at low-leverage middle relievers. Can I say again: Chan-Ho Park. (Steven Goldman)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Will, Crank up The Mill! Are the Tigers really caught in no-man's land at this point? While the decision to be buyers or sellers is a difficult one for this team, there's not really much they could do, in terms of improving or dumping, anyway, right?
(Ryan from Atlanta)
They are in a tough position, but they're smart and creative. I think they could do a number of things that would help themselves if they choose to. They could deal Ivan Rodriguez for help, plug Brandon Inge in, and see what happens. They could deal Todd Jones or Joel Zumaya, given the reliever market. Never count out the Tigers. Dombrowski et al have proved themselves time and again. (Will Carroll)
