2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)It would be a colossal waste of time for the Rays to demand Polanco from the Pirates. What's a more realistic trade scenario involving Price? Joc Pederson plus a low-level pitcher? Piscotty & Marco Gonzalez? Thanks.
(R.J. from Palo Alto)
Of course it would would be a waste of time for the Pirates. They wouldn't make that deal.

I don't think either of those are good enough offers for someone like David Price. You have to realize that he's not a one-year rental. James Shields netted Wil Myers PLUS. David Price is better than James Shields. Whatever the Rays get in return for Price, it's going to be a haul. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could Marco Gonzalez be the next Cole Hamels? Nothing special in terms of velocity from the left-side, but oh that changeup...
(Shawn from Cubicle)
Maybe a poor man's Hamels, who continually gets overlooked among the best in the game. Marco's ceiling isn't that high and Hamels has routinely sat from 92-94, which Marco won't do. His change up is good, but Hamels possesses the best lefty change up in the game. Marco's is very good but it's not an 80. I guess you could say that it's a similar package but at a much lower ceiling. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marco Gonzalez, when will he be promoted to AA? Seems to be gliding through A+.
(jlarsen from Chicagoland)
I'd guess it won't be long for Marco. He's not the kind of high-ceiling arm the Cardinals are used to having in their farm system, but he's polished and not having too much trouble with the Florida State League. His change up alone is good enough to dominate A-ball. It's a plus pitch. He'll be a 3-4 starter, but he doesn't need too much more time in Palm Beach. I'd guess he's in Springfield by the 4th of July, if not a little sooner. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)In a couple years, which 2013 draftee are teams gonna be sick they didn't draft earlier?
(tr from Mattress factory by the Goldsteins)
From the first round, McGuire, Shipley, Marco Gonzalez, and Hunter Harvey come to mind as guys that will be viewed as draft steals. (Jason Parks)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)Some have put a Wacha type comp on Marco Gonzalez, is this accurate?
(rentz from parentsbasement)
They both have highly provocative changeups. That's about it for me. (Jason Parks)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chris Anderson or Marco Gonzalez? Who has the higher ceiling and better career?
(Frank the Tank from Ny)
I think Anderson has the higher ceiling because the raw stuff is more impressive, but Gonzalez is a helluva pitcher and has fewer question marks. Anderson -- though I don't think this is likely -- could still end up in the bullpen. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Out of the two Cardinals #1 picks this year, who do you like better long term/short term?
(Christopher from St. Louis)
I'll take Marco Gonzalez in the short term solely because he was considered one of the more polished arms and able to contribute quickly. I'll take Rob Kaminsky long term because the curveball is serious and I think the fastball can play up even though he has a small frame. Also, what is not to like about Kaminsky he's from a pretty good state you know... well even though he lives in the wrong end of it. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-07-12 19:30:00 (link to chat)Which of this years draft class could you see playing in the majors this time next year?
(john s from NYC)
Complicated due to the fact that a number of teams are incentivized not to push players (since they aren't likely to compete in 2014). Marco Gonzalez is much better than most fans realize, but the Cardinals are stacked in the rotation. Appel is pretty far along the developmental curve, but the Astros don't have a particular need to rush him. Bryant could have a longer adjustment period than expected due to mechanical issues. The Mariners already have a number of corner infielders ahead of Peterson and no real need to push him. I guess Appel is the most likely. The Tigers could push some of their college arms -- Knebel, Crawford, Thompson, Zimoek, Kubitza, etc., depending on if the org is willing to move some to the pen. (Nick Faleris on Draft Signing Day)
2013-03-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know its early, but who are some names who could highlight rnd 2?
(webberoo11 from Las Vegas)
Lots of names that could go later on Day 1 or drop to 3rd or 4th Round depending on the rest of the spring. I'd look to guys like Jagielo (3b/of, Notre Dame), Windle (lhp, Minnesota), Ciuffo (c, Lexington HS (S.C.)), JaCoby Jones (of/2b, LSU), Marco Gonzalez (lhp, Gonzaga), Hunter Renfroe (of/c, Mississippi St.), Chris Okey (c, Eustis HS(Fla.)) and Chad Pinder (3b/ss, VaTech).
