BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)How much are you expecting David Peralta to regress next year?
(CVC from O)
Somewhat, but he's a solid all around player and should be able to be good enough to still be viable for the Diamondbacks. (Mike Gianella)
2015-11-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)David Peralta put up some big 2nd half numbers. His babip was obviously high, but hard hit % and exit velocity were also high. What do you expect from him in 2016? Thanks.
(Bill from Trenton)
Someone asked me who the most underrated player in baseball was right now and my answer was Peralta's OF-mate A.J. Pollock. Now, Peralta isn't likely to break out like Pollock did this year, but I think he has a nice skill set and will be a solid guy for a while. I'd love to see the K rate come down, but it seems like he's trading some Ks for hard contact, and it's worked so far. The tie between Exit Velo and BABIP is loose still, but I don't think he's due for a full-on regression to a replacement level guy. A couple win player, largely on offense, seems about right. (Jeff Long)
2015-09-21 20:30:00 (link to chat)Which two would you keep out of Bird, Grichuk, Piscotty, and David Peralta? Thanks.
(John from Trenton)
I'd be very tempted to keep the two Cardinals. (Bret Sayre)
