BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)I gather from the tigers Top 10 - you would not be optimistic about Matt Boyd's ability to stick in an MLB rotation? (If not, bullpen?)
(Will from MI)
Boyd was not eligible for the top 10, he would have gone somewhere in the middle if so. I think he can be a No 4 or 5 starter, or a very competent reliever. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-08-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Greg, Who do you see as potential breakout starting pitchers in the AL for next season?
(Chris from Dallas)
Still riding with Gausman, the Rays will probably slow-play Blake Snell because that's what they do but I saw him the other day and he was sensational. He's pretty close, with three plus pitches. For deeper leagues, I'm interested to see what Matt Boyd does in Detroit. (Greg Wellemeyer)
2015-03-12 15:00:00 (link to chat)Best comment in the annual?
(Mo Betta from Hoodhaven)
I actually haven't read much of the book yet because of school. The Moises Sierra one is an all-timer. Adam Sobsey (who I shared the Jays chapter with, quite intimidating writing next to him) wrote Matt Boyd with the perfect changeup metaphor. Of the ones I wrote (not that you asked): Jonathan Gray, LaTroy Hawkins. (Andrew Koo)
