BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your favorite prospect that you don't think has any chance at making the majors?
(Brett from Charlotte)
Billy McKinney. I came away very impressed in a three-game look and will push hard for his spot in the Cubs top-10 this off-season. His addition in that trade will be a major coup when it's all said and done. (Jeff Moore)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)It has been reported they are not negotiating during the season, the Red Sox decide to trade Jon Lester, what kind of return could they get? Considering the Shark return and Price might not be traded. Will Lester be the latest piece that heads to the Cubs in Theo's master plan to acquire all former Red Sox players?
(Matt from Cambridge)
It wouldn't be an Addison Russell Billy McKinney return for just Lester but it'd be a pretty nice return. I don't think the Cubs would make a trade for Lester and give up one of their bats at the deadline. I think they might rather gamble and see if they can bring him in via free agency. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Billy McKinney in the conversation for top 100? Only 19 and holding his own at high A
(Pete from Chicago)
If he is it's in the backend. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)With the recent acquisition of the Addison Russel, Billy McKinney and Dan Straily do the Cubs now have the best farm in the league?
(Balki from Chicago)
Pretty good case; nobody can touch their impact bats; depth is obviously improving but it had a long way to go. I think Cubs and Twins are the two alphas of the minor league systems. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank the following OF prospects from last years draft: Hunter Renfroe, Billy McKinney, Phil Ervin, and Austin Wilson
(Sean from Oakland)
Ervin, Renfroe, McKinney, Wilson (Jason Parks)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What type of player is Billy McKinney like? Hit tool? Power tool?
(Joe from The Couch)
Hit tool heavy left-fielder with a chance for some (not plus) power. Could end up a tweener type. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Other than the top talents from the most recent draft class, who has jumped up prospect boards after their first season of pro ball? Phil Ervin? Ryan McMahon? Billy McKinney?
(Fred from Detroit)
Those are nice choices, but don't forget guys like Hunter Harvey, Shipley, Kaminsky. (Jason Parks)
