BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Josmil Pinto ain't gonna hit 342/398/566 like he did in September last season. But can he be a league average starting catcher?
(Paul from DC)
You're right, he's not hitting that over the long haul, but he absolutely can be a solid everyday catcher. He's really underrated nationally right now, in my opinion. (Mark Anderson)
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Twins are reportedly interested in Saltalamacchia. I'd personally like to see that money spent on pitching (and more pitching). It seems like Josmil Pinto would be a solid option, especially for a team that's still in a rebuild mode. Am I missing something?
(thrillho from minneapolis)
With Pinto on the scene, I don't see any reason to pursue Salty. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you feel Josmil Pinto has developed enough defensively to handle at least a portion of the Twins everyday catching duties in 2014?
(Travs Hound from Arkansas)
Yes. Especially considering they gave Ryan Doumit's corpse 99 games behind the plate over the last two years. (Bret Sayre)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Josmil Pinto's ready to shoulder most of the Twins' catching load this year?
(ErikJH from Wash DC)
I've had some recent interesting discussions on Pinto with Parks as we've discussed the Twins Top 10 that should be out next week. The consensus seems to be that Pinto is a no doubt everyday backstop, but I think they may need to either give him some help if they bring him up right away, or find someone to cover until about mid-season when he's truly ready. (Mark Anderson)
2013-10-07 18:00:00 (link to chat)Any under the radar catchers going into next year? I'm stuck with Wellington in a 20 teamer
(Mitch from Iowa)
Hi Mitch

In a 20-team league, probably not. Yan Gomes would be more of a sleeper if everyone would stop talking about him, but still might be in your format. If the Twins consider moving Joe Mauer to another position, Josmil Pinto is instantly intriguing. (Mike Gianella)
2013-10-07 18:00:00 (link to chat)List 5 hitters and pitchers that you feel could be breakout players in 2014. Thanks for the chat, Mike!
(Brett from The Office)
Hi Brett.

Hitters: Christian Yelich, Billy Hamilton, Oscar Taveras, Avisail Garcia, Josmil Pinto.

Pitchers: Jameson Taillon, Rafael Montero, Drew Smyly, Jimmy Nelson, Taijuan Walker. (Mike Gianella)
2013-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Josmil Pinto or Derek Norris for 2014 in an AL only league? Can keep either for $1. Thanks!
(Neil from London )
Norris for sure. We might be seeing the best SSS of Pinto. (Paul Sporer)
