2014-12-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Josh Donaldson had 4 years before free agency, and the A's got an adequate, injury prone replacement in Brett Lawrie, a pair of soft-tossers in Sean Nolin and Kendall Graveman, and an infielder who is years away from contributing in Franklin Barreto. Then they dealt Brandon Moss for a 24-year old second baseman who just got to Double-A in Joey Wendle. And before that, they signed DH Billy Butler to a three-year deal. Why sell off Donaldson and Moss for such paltry returns? Why bring in Butler if you're going to rebuild? What is Billy Beane doing?
(John from San Francisco)
I think, emphasize think, I could come up with explanations on each of these moves on their own. But combined, they really throw me for a loop. I'm struggling to come up with an answer that's not far-fetched... We've been programmed to trust Beane, but it looks like he went all in last summer, which I loved and now he realizes that if he doesn't try and get some long-term assets for his club, it could go down the tubes quickly. I get that thought process, I'm not sure I see these moves being the best execution. Adding Butler to the mix almost feels like they changed their minds as to how to approach the offseason a few weeks into the process. Perplexing... (Sahadev Sharma)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)Do the A's plan on trying to keep Franklin Barreto at SS. His numbers looked pretty good last year, is he someone that could be a top 50 prospect by this time next year?
(Harrison from Cali)
There's always a dream that your top flight prospects are going to stay at shortstop, simply because other than catcher it is probably the most difficult position to find impact offensive talent on a regular basis. Barreto should continue to get a chance while he's in the low minors, but the actions just weren't that natural for me and I think by the time he hits the upper levels he will be moving to center field. (Mark Anderson)
2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)What have you heard on Franklin Barreto? He is 18 year old shortstop, in low A, and hit .311 with 6 HR and stole 29 bases in 79 games. Also is JaCoby Jones a guy to keep an eye on? I mean he is college guy in A, but 23 HR and 17 SB ca't be ignored. But A seems low for a college guy and he hasn't exact moved fast. Thanks Ben.
(Matt from Cambridge)
Both are legit fantasy prospects at this point, to be sure. Jones is probably the safer bet to reach the majors, but Barreto has the higher upside, and thatís who I prefer. Youíre going to have to wait a while, but you could be left with a quality starting fantasy shortstop. (Ben Carsley)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks C.J. Could you rank these prospects in terms of ceiling: Nomar Mazara, Franklin Barreto, and Manuel Margot.
(Keith from Manchester, CT)
In the order you have them, in my opinion. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ranking highest upside, bat only... Aaron Judge, Rio Ruiz, Lewis Brinson, Renato Nunez, Dalton Pompey, and Franklin Barreto?
(MP from Kentucky)
Pure upside: Brinson, Judge, Pompey, Ruiz, Barreto, Nunez (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is Franklin Barreto starting to climb up the prospect rankings, any chance he is a top 101 guy at the end of the year?
(JB from CT)
Barreto has been in the discussion for the 101, and I'm sure he'll be in the discussion again this year. Will be a stretch to stick at SS, but even in CF, has some tools to impact the game. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario or Franklin Barreto?
(SK from Boston)
Rosario. He's going to stick at SS, whereas Barreto is a CF long term. I like both guys quite a bit, but the early reports on Rosario are excellent. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)What's the latest Franklin Barreto buzzbuzzbuzz?
(Esteban from South Jersey)
He's in extended ST. The buzz is muted until short-season starts. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are you hearing on Franklin Barreto? Is the bat legit?
(Drew from Chicago)
I think so absolutely. The hands are ridiculous at the plate and there's too much natural ability there for him not to hit in my opinion. (Mark Anderson)
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)
