DateQuestionAnswer
2017-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What was your favorite part about writing the comments for the San Francisco Giants in this year's Baseball Prospectus Annual? Did you learn or discover something that you'd consider terribly special or interesting?
(Bryan G. from yup, still under all that snow)
My favorite part of writing for the annual is the jokes, obviously. I actually love the restriction of combining the necessary information about the player, and some flavor or a good joke, all in 150-200 words. Seriously, some of the best things I've ever written are annual comments, I think.

What I learned from researching the Giants is the strange depth of their system. The Giants are one of those teams that always seem to "get away with it" - no matter what terrible signing they make, or how badly they draft, they never sink completely into the swamp. What I learned is that the Giants are incredible at generating replacement-level players, fourth outfielders and four-pitch starters like Ty Blach that no one gets excited about, but who always seem to salvage things when the old overpaid starters go down. It's kind of impressive, really. (Patrick Dubuque)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospects are at the top end of the scale when it comes to locating their pitches?
(Gary from Irvine, CA)
The guys that came up the most during our off-season Top Tools (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=22959) discussion were Kyle Hendriks, Dylan Bundy, Ty Blach, Justin Nicolino, Rafael Montero, Marucs Stroman, and Noah Syndergaard. (Mark Anderson)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Ty Blach a guy who projects as future plus command at the big league level, or just a minor league strike thrower?
(rmunter from Washington DC)
I do think he has plus command projection once he rounds into form at the highest level. That said, I'm not a huge fan and think he's more of a 4/5 starter in the end. (Mark Anderson)
