2012-01-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Greg Golson ever be able to capitalize on his sexy tools?
(Kyle from Montreal)
I don't think so. He's a 4/5 at best (Jason Parks)
2010-09-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are you drinking? What are you wearing? Most importantly, does Ichiro have the best RF arm of active players, cause Greg Golson made one heck of a throw to end the Rays/Yanks game last night.
(dianagramr from NYC)
Drinking lots of water and wearing very tight under armor as I recover from the surgery I had on Monday. Greg Golson is a former Phillies nothing prospect who was shipped to Texas for fellow nothing prospect John Mayberry, Jr. When my father and I heard Golson's name mentioned on Quick Pitch this morning we instantly double-took (double-taked?) and stared in disbelief. Ichiro! still has a tremendous arm. Francouer, for all his faults, has a strong arm, too. I don't know who has the best, but I do know that Corey Hart and Hunter Pence have the strangest throws. (Eric Seidman)
