BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)I noticed that Alen Hanson didnt crack the top 100 despite being one of the top 10 second base prospects on many lists. What is the reasoning for him not making the top 100?
(Justin from PA)
Second base depth in the minors isn't exactly at a high point, so that's part of it. It's also a reflection of proximity versus ceiling. He should be in the majors this year but he's going to have to hit an upper percentile of his potential to be more than a utility guy, whereas someone like Forrest Wall has a higher ceiling. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
2015-08-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Forrest Wall? Blocked eventually by D.J, or can one move to another spot on the field?
(Scott from Pa.)
He's far enough away that I'm not even considering who is or isn't playing his position in the big leagues (Greg Wellemeyer)
2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is Forrest Wall's offensive profile?
(xavier from texas)
Have to give my frenemy Kiley McDaniel a lot of credit here, he was high on Wall before anyone was. I love the swing, and that along with borderline plus-plus speed gives him a chance to be a .300 hitter, and there's just enough loft to project some pop as well. The issue is he can't throw at all and he's not great around the bag, so the bat will have to carry him. I think it can. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff, did Jomar Reyes or Forrest Wall get much consideration? Perhaps their injuries hindered them? Where might they fall by season's end?
(MP from KY)
Reyes got some consideration, but ultimately I think the injuries got him, at least on this particular list. I'm sure he'll be in the 101, though. (Jeff Moore)
2015-06-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Dare to be the first to give a good comp for Forrest Wall.
(doclove from Ann Arbor )
Woodland Partition (Ben Carsley)
2015-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ryan, who do you have as some of your favorite Low Minor, high ceiling prospects to keep an eye on for 2015, and are looking to jump on before their stock gains recognition this season, ex. Tapia last pre-season or Devers by its conclusion?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Forrest Wall and Michael Gettys. (Ryan Parker)
2015-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ryan, who do you have as some of your favorite Low Minor, high ceiling prospects to keep an eye on for 2015, and are looking to jump on before their stock gains recognition this season, ex. Tapia last pre-season or Devers by its conclusion?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Forrest Wall and Michael Gettys. (Ryan Parker)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)From a dynasty perspective, is it worth dropping Alen Hanson for Forrest Wall in a 12 team mixed league? Need help at 2B and I'm starting to wonder if Hanson will ever be an answer.
(Griffin from Houston)
Someone needs to put an end to the Forrest Wall fantasy madness. No, for the love of god, don't do this. Hanson could be in the majors next season. Wall is probably four years away. (Ben Carsley)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)You don't know about hazel eyes? Oh brother. Hazel be the Forrest Wall of eye colors. You catch me?
(Ronson from On the Scratches)
I prefer to look at inner beauty and see what's Behind These Hazel Eyes. (Ben Carsley)
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mauricio, who do have as some of your favorite Low Minor, high ceiling prospects to keep an eye on for 2015, and are looking to acquire before their stock gains recognition this season, ex. Tapia last pre-season or Devers by its conclusion?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
I mentioned him earlier but Gleyber Torres is up there. Forrest Wall is getting a lot of BP love as well that's a dude I'm keeping tabs on. It's a shame you missed the Reynaldo Lopez train but Tucker Blair just drove that one right into the mainstream. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Nick who was your favorite guy from the 2014 MLB draft that did not make the list?
(Mo from MN)
Touki Toussaint, Michael Chavis, Sean Reid-Foley, Jack Flaherty, Derek Fisher, Max Pentecost, Michael Kopech, Luis Ortiz, Forrest Wall. There's been a solid influx of low-minors talent. (Top 101 Chat)
2015-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which Rockies prospect bat has the highest ceiling, is the safest and which one is your favorite?
(kylanje from Florida)
Dahl for both, but I really love the way Forrest Wall goes about the game in the box. I had him as the seventh most valuable high school bat in the class, and a few of the guys ahead of him were priced-up due to other profile characteristics. He can really swing it, and I expect him to step right in and establish himself as a producer on par with the trio at Asheville last summer. (NL West Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2015-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which NL West 2014 Draft bat has the best fantasy baseball impact? Forrest Wall, Michael Gettys, Alex Verdugo, or Marcus Wilson?
(tlw08 from The Great White North)
Gettys is the biggest upside. Wall is the safest bet. Verdugo needs to be run through the full season gauntlet, because it's been a Jekyl & Hyde act over the last 18 months and we don't really know what we have here, yet. Wilson has five-tool potential, but is a slow developmental burn. (NL West Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Not a lot of coverage on him, but what do you think the ceiling is for Forrest Wall of the Rockies? I know the arm is well below average but it sounds like the bat is legit. Any comps you can think of for him, particularly offensively? Thanks!
(RetroKryptonite from Oklahoma)
He has 152 plate appearances in rookie ball so it's really hard for a non-prospect guy for me to say. $15-20 player, particularly in Coors. (Mike Gianella)
