BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-29 20:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rather own Nick Williams or Phil Ervin in a dynasty? How much does Ervn's hot start affect your decision?
(Marlon from Earth)
Nick Williams and it's not close. For the second question, it doesn't. Let's see what happens when he's at a more age-appropriate level. (Bret Sayre)
2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've been asking everyone on JaCoby Jones, but heard nothing. Seems to have plus power and run tools and the Pirates seem to think he can stick at SS. He is hitting for now, but has a bad approach. Does he have a big ceiling or just old for the level?
(Matt from Cambridge)
You've come to the right place, Matt. I'm a big Jones fan. He's a risky prospect, but his ceiling is very high. I saw a good amount of him a few summers back when he played on a star-studded Harwich team that set the Cape all time record for team homers. That squad also had Austin Wilson, Eric Jagielo, Phil Ervin, AJ Reed, Brian Ragira and Brett Austin. Fun times. Jones's batting practice group was ridiculous every game. Here's the thing - he's a fast twitch guy. Great athlete. Runs, throws, makes outstanding defensive plays, can hit the ball a mile in batting practice. Will he hit? His approach, pitch recognition and command of the strike zone have a ways to go. Ultimately, it's hard to predict him hitting enough to be more than a role 5 type average regular, but I still think that's possible. And after you (quickly) run out of guys you're confident will be role 5+ Jones offers as much upside as basically anyone. (Al Skorupa)
2014-01-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm surprised to see Phillip Ervin ranked almost 30 spots higher than Austin Meadows considering their relatively similar profiles. I always thought Meadows would rate higher, with louder tools and more projection. Any insight into what caused the separation?
(tonynelson19 from MN)
I like Ervin more; better chance to stay up the middle; plus runner with plus arm; better bat speed. Just needs to stay healthy. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to rank these OF for dynasty purposes: Phillip Ervin, Nick Williams, Raimel Tapia, Domingo Santana and Jorge Bonifacio.
(Connor from Dallas )
Wow, you hit on a lot of semi-under the radar guys I love here. Tapia, Williams, Santana, Bonifacio, Ervin. But I think it's fairly close all the way around except for Ervin. (Ben Carsley)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)I know the BP 101 isn't a fantasy list, but how does Phillip Ervin rank 63 on the BP 101 but doesn't crack the top 50 on the 2013 Draftees list?
(tonynelson19 from MN)
Parks made the BP 101, Sayre made the top 50 Draftees list. And the difference between real life and fantasy can have a HUGE impact on valuations. (Ben Carsley)
2013-11-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think the power Phillip Ervin showed during his first pro season stint is for real or an aberration? Thanks for the chat!
(Tim from Toronto)
Another answer from Mark Anderson, because going to Scout School didn't make me know much about Phillip Ervin: "I certainly don't buy the power surge in the rookie-level Pioneer League, but there's a little more juice in the bat than I think he was given credit for entering the draft. I think there's a chance he ends up with average power that manifests in a pile of doubles and 15 home runs a year, which makes him an extremely useful player if he can stick in the middle of the outfield." (Ben Lindbergh)
