BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Michael Conforto deal is supposedly "done" but not finalized. What are the odds that "done" ends up not happening at all?
(Matt from Concord, NH)
I don't see that happening. Conforto -- even if he takes below "slot" value -- is getting more money picked where he was than he was slated to get and more than he'll get if he goes back to school. I think that deal gets done; just like almost every first rounder. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)I remember reading that you loved Michael Conforto, what about him did you love and what should Mets fans expect?
(Skinny Pete from Albuquerque )
Quick hands and a solid base. The kid just hits. And its easy. Don't expect huge power but the avg will be there along with consistency. I tend to not like college bats but Conforto is the real deal. (Ryan Parker)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bradley Zimmer, Michael Conforto, or Derek Fisher. Who and in what order do you take for fantasy purposes?
(Eric from Portland)
I unfortunately don't have much knowledge of all three. I know most about Zimmer, but that doesn't automatically make him the best of that bunch. (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for doing this awesome draft day chat Nick. Really appreciate it. I'm a big Mets fan. What are your thoughts on Michael Conforto? If you had to estimate, what would be his ETA? What's his scouting report? Thanks again Nick. These chats are great. Can't really find this info anywhere else.
(Mike from NY)
Here's the write-up from my corner outfield preview (tinyurl.com/2014PosRev-COF):

"Conforto mashed his way through the regular season, slashing .364/.518/.578, drawing 50 walks to 35 strikeouts over 250 plate appearances. Thereís more pull-side power in the bat than his seven home runs would indicate, and he gets to it easy thanks to a pronounced uppercut in the swing and raw strength that allows him to generate easy lift and carry. The tradeoff is a diminished overlap of swing and pitch plane due to the barrelís quick passage through the hit zone. He can struggle adjusting to secondaries away, and there is risk the hit tool will lag at the next level as he is more consistently challenged with quality off-speed stuff.

Defensively itís a left field profile whose nose for the ball outdistanced the physical tools he uses to chase them down. Heís a below-average runner with average arm strength that should be able to provide adequate defense at the seven spot, but lacks the arm for right or the coverage for center. He profiles as a power-first middle-of-the-order bat capable of 25-plus home runs a year. While the on-base production this spring has been staggering, the walks will likely drop some as more advanced arms challenge him in the zone. He could come off the board in the top 15 picks and is a lock for first round selection."

2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)The Mets are being consistently linked with Michael Conforto, but I find myself skeptical of that. While they will not necessarily take a 4th HS position player in a row, I do believe that if they are taking a college one they would go for one they could project to be an everyday outfielder. So is Conforto actually capable of being an average left fielder or do you find it unlikely that the Mets like him as much as reported?
(AMetsGuy from NYC)
Conforto is definitely capable of holding down an everyday left field job and I can buy the bat as worthy of top 10 consideration. That doesn't mean the Mets are locked in on him, but it's a defensible selection. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)If you were drafting for the Mets, would you take Michael Conforto, Trea Turner or Sean Newcomb and why?
(Mr. Must See TV from Not Anywhere Near Citi Field)
I like Newcomb, Conforto, Turner in that order. Newcomb isn't a front-ender for me, but he has a lot of room to maneuver in that mid-rotation slotting, giving him a good shot to stick there long term. Conforto's swing carries a little too much risk for me compared to Newcomb, and Turner doesn't have a strong enough defensive profile to make up for the big hit tool questions. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)If I remember correctly, what caused Trout to drop, and caused some scouts to have concerns over Buxton, was the quality of competition they faced. I've read the same with Kodi Medeiros this year. My question is, aren't scouts smart enough to focus on the actual tools and not the results? Why would level of competition matter so much? If a guy has plus-plus bat speed, wouldn't a scout be able to see that, who cares if he hits 20 HRs in Idaho or 7 in California?
(Shawn from Cubicle)
Not all that similar scenarios or situations between the three. No one got to see Trout because he played in a cold weather town. Buxton was regarded as the best prospect in the draft class, but some thought he was more raw as a prospect. Medeiros has electric stuff, but there are legit concerns of whether he can hold it over a start.

Competition matters because evaluating hitters is ridiculously difficult and competition they are facing matters more than the competition a pitcher is facing. No one is going to get fired for drafting Michael Conforto and his ridiculous triple slash line in a major college conference. (Ron Shah)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Trea Turner, Michael Gettys, and Michael Conforto are 5 tool players. I've read negatives on all three. Who is the best of the bunch or is there someone better? A theoretical 5 category player.
(Vic from Dumfries)
You can dream on Gettys for days. So many tools. (Ronit Shah)
