2012-03-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Kevin, First off - thank you for attending the BP Book Tour in Chicago several weeks ago. I stopped by for a few hours and picked up some very interesting information. I appreciate you taking the time to interact with readers. My question is about Brett Jackson. I have not had a chance to watch him at all and am curious as to his MLB floor/ceiling. I've read that he strikes out too much, is a great athlete, and BP has made comparisons to a young Curtis Granderson. Cubs manager Dale Sveum has stated Jackson is major league ready. Rumors have recently been floating around that Marlon Byrd is on the trade block and Jackson will get a quick call-up. Is Jackson someone worth getting excited over? I have optimistic visions of 80R, 20HR, 80 RBI, 20 SB, .260/.350/.450 seasons in the future. From your observations and analysis, what should Cubs fans expect in the years to come? Thank you!
(Nick D from Chicago, IL)
I think that's a perfectly reasonable ceiling for Jackson, but I don't think he's ready. He still needs to work on his contact issues. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the Matheny answer. Flip side: who gets the Boston job?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Dale Sveum looks like the favorite. (Derek Carty)

2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesSpeaking of Witness Protection, where the hell did everybody else go?

"akachazz (DC): I'm kind of pulling for Milwaukee just because of Sabathia's heart, but as a Boston fan, I can't help rooting for Dale Sveum's demise. The memory of many a Sox baserunner being sent needlessly and pitilessly to his doom is still seared into my memory."

Hell hath no fury like a fan towards his team's third base coach. Was he worse than Windmill Kim? In Sveum's defense, they did win the 2004 World Series while he was on the job. You'd think he deserves that much slack. (Jay Jaffe)
