BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Recognizing they weren't candidates for this list, how are Nomar Mazara and Ronald Guzman progressing?
(Rob from Alaska)
Mazara is climbing quickly; likely to be a top 101 this off-season. Very good hitter that is likely to explode in the next few seasons. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the higher ceiling: Vogelbach or Ronald Guzman?
(Frank from Texas)
Guzzie (Jason Parks)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Looking for young power. Should I stash Ronald Guzman now?
(Silverback38 from VA)
How deep is your league? I'd wait and take someone out of the upcoming draft. (Ronit Shah)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Ronald Guzman jumps into the top 100 prospect discussion next year?
(RyanW from Fort Worth)
It;s a tough profile, so the power will have to show up before he jumps into that discussion. I obviously like the bat, but tough value spot. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'll go ahead and apologize for the blatant fantasy question, but in a medium-deep keeper league looking for lottery tickets, which one of Gabriel Guerrero, Manuel Margot, Franklin Barreto, Amed Rosario, and Ronald Guzman would you want?
(Rob from Alaska)
You can't really go wrong with any of them if you're looking for lottery tickets. I've been particularly impressed with the reports on Rosario, but my eyes tell me Margot might be the guy I'd put my money on. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jason, who do you like more as a prospect? Nick Williams or Ronald Guzman? Thanks!
(Joe from Dallas)
Guzman has a tough profile, as he is already limited to 1B. But I really love his approach to hitting and the ease in which he does it. I've already spoken about my love for Williams as well, especially the bat-to-ball skills. But his overall game is very rudimentary, and he could flame out before bringing it all together. THe more I watch Guzman, the more Freddie Freeman I see in the swing. (Jason Parks)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you believe Ronald Guzman will develop enough power to be 1st division at 1B?
(mikeyurk from CT)
I do. I'm a big believer in Guzman's offensive upside. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do Ronald Guzman and Nomar Mazara appear to be living up to their international hype? Are they Top 100 types by the end of the season?
(jaymoff from Salem)
Probably not top 100 types this year, but they have the potential to be down the line. Living up to the hype so far, for me. (Jason Cole)
2013-05-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ronald Guzman had some work on his meniscus, but any report if he's close to returning?
(Sexy Rexy from New York)
He's playing in extended spring training, and should get the promotion to Hickory once its all good to go. Very natural hitter despite having the body of a young power forward. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Still a long way away from top 100 contention, but have you seen Ronald Guzman in person this spring? Are the reports true about him bulking up quite a bit?
(Ryan from Dallas)
He didn't bulk up. He's lanky 18-year-old kid that added some meat to the frame. Its not crazy meat either. He is starting to fill out. It's something I expected to see at some point. He works his ass off. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jairo Beras higher ceiling than Ronald Guzman?
(rangerfans2 from Fort Worth)
He has crazy power, and if you value the promise of power Beras's ceiling is higher than Guzman. I'd still tak Guzman. Yes, he's a 1B prospect and the power can't stand next to the raw coming out of Beras. But I'll take the better hitter every time. (Jason Parks)
2012-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Ronald Guzman will be in the discussion for Top 50 by this time next year?
(Greg36 from Fort Worth)
It might take more time than that, but he has the potential to be in that discussion during his developmental process. (Jason Parks)
