DateQuestionAnswer
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who will help me earn fatter stacks tonight in daily fantasy, Adrian Gonazalez against the magical Jason Marquis, or Victor Martinez against John Lackey?
(Fat from Stacksville)
AGonz, gotta go with the power upside in daily. (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would offering Victor Martinez and Julio Teheran for Yadier Molina in an 11-team points league where pretty much everything counts and there are 7 freezers per year be an insult?
(Yatchisin from Spitball City)
No, you're trying to cash in on Teheran's hotness. I don't think it'll get accepted, but it's not a ludicrous initial salvo to test the waters. I hate when people offer AJ Ellis & Jason Marquis for Yadi Molina and act like that's a reasonable way to test the waters. (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)How long does Josh Byrnes wait before he takes steps to fix his rotation?
(Gregorio from Londres)
Hi Gregorio, thanks for the question. The biggest problem Byrnes faces is that there isn't any real way to fix the rotation. Edwin Jackson, Shaun Marcum, and the rest all signed elsewhere, leaving the Padres with Jason Marquis. At some point maybe Cory Luebke, Tim Stauffer, and Robbie Erlin can help, but not now. (Geoff Young)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Great to see you at BP. Inquiring minds have to know, who's your baseball and ncaa basketball homers? If you have east coast bias, please at least let be for Maryland behind the stellar Mark Turgeon. ;)
(Jayhawker from LV, KS)
The Duke Blue Devils for college hoops (love the system Coach K runs) and the Mets for baseball, though I don't let any of that slip into my fantasy analysis. When Jason Marquis plays the Mets, I'm cheering for Marquis every time since I have him in LABR NL. My fantasy teams and analysis come first, as unpopular an answer that might be for some people. (Derek Carty)
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given his performs in the second half last year and the beginning of this season, do you think we can actually start to trust Barry Zito?
(YD from Philly)
More important than Barry Zito, I'm listening to The Giraffes now that the Pixies are finished with.

Back to Zito though, he has a 2.45 ERA, 7.3 K/9, 3.6 BB/9 and just 0.6 HR/9 since July 18 of last season (121 1/3 innings). I don't think that the ERA is realistic, but he sure seems to be back on track nowadays.

Unrelated, but I just traded Heath Bell and Jason Marquis for David Freese and Mat Latos in a keeper league. I took over someone else's roster, so this year is for rebuilding. I like that return, especially since keeping closers isn't my bag and both of those players are cheap cheap. (Marc Normandin)
2010-04-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is it remotely possible that Jason Marquis can continue to pitch this badly if he is not injured? I know he is no superstar, but he used to at least be above average. The Nationals are at .500 in spite of him, but need him to improve to have a prayer of staying around that level until Strasburg, Wang and Storen join the team.
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Marquis's career ERA is 4.57 and that's exactly how I think of him. He is an average-ish pitcher who survives due to the ability to induce groundballs. He doesn't have pinpoint control and isn't going to rack up strikeout numbers, but he is not a starter who will surrender 7-8 runs per game. We're still very early in the season, and as Kyle Kendrick showed last night, we are still in that area where a pitcher's ERA can drop by 10-11 runs with one good outing. If Marquis has an ERA above 7.50 in June, MAYBE something is going on, but let's let the guy make 5-6 starts before even asking questions like this. For all we know, two starts from now he could be down to 5.64 or lower. (Eric Seidman)
2010-04-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)J. Sanchez has 27 strikeouts in 19.1 innings. Do you think he's turned the corner for good, and if so does he bring the Giants into the NL West conversation?
(John from NH)
My brother and I were talking about a topic along these lines the other day, in that teams should really be looking for performance volatility with ample upside in their fifth starter spot, as opposed to consistent "meh-ness" from the Wellemeyer's of the world. Last year, after acquiring Penny, the Giants had this with Sanchez as the fifth starter behind LinceZitoCainPenny. Now he is the 4th starter on the team with, ironically, Wellemeyer penciled in behind him. In no way can three starts reveal if someone has turned the corner but that doesn't mean Giants fans or fantasy owners can't be encouraged. But this is what volatile performers do -- they tease you with hints of ace-hood for two weeks and then pitch like Jason Marquis has so far for a week. Sanchez could always miss bats; he just couldn't prevent walks, so we'll need more than his strikeout numbers to eventually determine if he has turned the proverbial corner. (Eric Seidman)
2009-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Nationals say they are looking for two veteran starters, and are mentioned in conversation about Jason Marquis and John Garland. Heck, Mike Rizzo even went to see Aroldis Chapman. This is a pivotal year for the Nats to show us fans that their direction is changing. What do you believe the end result of this activity will be?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Marquis and Garland are both reliable inning-eaters who can help take the pressure off a young pitching staff where several pitchers will be on short leashes. Both of those guys need good defenses to survive, and both are probably flippable to contenders at the deadline if you can find a way to absorb the innings late in the year.

It'll still make for another losing season, but if they can help Strasburg, Detwiler and others mature, it will be worth it. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tim Hudson? Should we prepare for a Big comeback in 2010?
(Tim from Queens)
I suspect he'll be a worthwhile third starter again, and as a result, someone on the cusp of getting eight large per annum from his next employer. This winter's free-agent market's going to be a bit fun/funny, in that somebody's going to get a Suppan-sized deal the team will regret; if that's Jason Marquis or Rich Harden, I wouldn't be surprised, but it won't be Tim Hudson. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-09-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts yet on post-season roster construction, Christina? The way contenders have been acquiring spare parts, there are clearly going to have to be some interesting players left off the NLDS and ALDS rosters. Who do you expect to be among them? Who should be?
(Bill from New Mexico)
As I'll get into a bit with tonight's TA on the Easts, there's certainly a bit of gamesmanship going on this year, as teams more effectively utilize the fact that the rules basically let you add anyone you were employing as of the deadline; if you want a particular pinch-runner, a fabulously non-descript third catcher, or whatever, you can make it so. Spare starters, almost to a man, should be out of luck if they aren't adaptable to long-relief roles; it seems as if more teams understand that they should only go so far as 11 pitchers, if even that many. The question is whether or not the Jamie Moyers of the world will get sulky where, say, Jason Marquis accepted his lot last season when it came to being left off. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)But don't you want a home-heavy second half? I know it might chew up your arms a bit, but home field advantage is still pretty huge, innit?
(Ari Collins from Boston)
Traditionally, yes, but winning at home hasn't been a stumbling block to Rockies' success. So much of their early success this season is from their having gotten extraordinary work out of Jason Marquis and Jason Hammel; Hammel's lost steam, but Jorge De La Rosa's rattled off six straight quality starts (getting back up off the floor typing that), and Marquis has a six-pack of his own in his last half-dozen starts. If Marquis doesn't wilt, not only will he have people wondering if putting him in the ASG wasn't earned after all, it'll put the Rockies into October. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jason Marquis... did something click, or are we just waiting for the other cleat to drop?
(Ryan from Milwaukee)
Think of 2006 and 2009 as the edges of a bell curve. (Joe Sheehan)
