DateQuestionAnswer
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Chris Carter get 500 At bats a year sometime in the future, or is it likely that he will have a Sam Horn type career?
(LindInMoskva from DC)
A couple of months ago it was looking like he could get there this season. Now with the A's bringing in 17 outfielders, who knows? He can also play first or DH, but the A's just have so many options it's hard to see him cracking the majors to start the year unless Brandon Allen gets dealt or he has a great spring. I like his power and I think he can be a quality player, especially for fantasy purposes. Whether he gets the chance to play everyday and when that will happen is up in the air at the moment. There are likely teams that would give him that chance, but in Oakland there's just so much competition. Their glut at 1B and OF is unmatched by any other team in baseball. (Derek Carty)
2009-12-29 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Joe, Will Jesus Montero be the DH for the Yanks in 2011? Has there ever been a player to only DH (and never play teh field)? Will he ever play the field and where?
(yanks2009 from DC)
Answering this just because I'm curious and want to put it out there...what player with significant starts (100? 200? higher?) had the highest % of DH starts. Sam Horn? Reggie Jefferson? Bob Hamelin? Travis Hafner?

Montero will be a first baseman down the road, although I truly wish the Yankees would just let him catch and live with -10 defense. He looks different than Posada does, but they suffered through Jorge's career, may as well do it with the high-impact hitter. (Joe Sheehan)
