BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is your take on Dayan Viciedo? Has he finally figure it out? He always had the power stroke, but seems like he might be figure out how to hit for average also
(Casey from Chicago)
I'm a huge fan. I have him in lots of spots, even before the Garcia injury and while I'd never be some monster who roots for injury, it did open up The Tank's PT. He's got massive power. I'd take .255 AVG if he can pop 25+ (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)Better comp for Puig, Bo Jackson or Metallica? When do you see him having MLB impact...
(NDub from Detroit)
Dayan Viciedo, maybe? Next year at the very earliest but I'm not even sold on that. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a native chicagoan, It's almost embarassing what the White Sox have done(or not done) this offseason. Spent waaaay too much on a player coming off a surprising all-around year, but needs a platoon-mate to be successful and has little-to-no-power in his bat. Is this the dreaded "R-word"(rebuilding) that Kenny Williams hinted about but always managed to avoid?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Williams could try to rebuild, but I'm not sure how. Off the top of my head, he's got Dayan Viciedo and Chris Sale as somewhat established players who theoretically haven't reached their prime. I'm not sure those are foundational guys, but they aren't bad. Then again, I don't ever dismiss Williams, who has enjoyed a great deal of success by doing things that baffle me. Someone should write a book and/or movie about him. (Geoff Young)
2012-08-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you impressed with the seasons of Salvador Perez and Dayan Viciedo thus far? Is there a chance Salvador Perez keeps slugging over .500 in the future? Could Dayan Viciedo's average creep up into the 270s or 280s range in seasons to come? Who do you like more?
(Mike from CT)
I like Perez more. He's a guy that continues to prove me wrong. His bat is better than I thought it would be, and every time I think I have his offensive potential pegged, he shows me another aspect that I had previously discounted. Hell of a player. (Jason Parks)
2012-08-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dayan Viciedo has had a nice season at the place at age 23 in the Majors ... but he doesn't walk and his defense isn't stellar. Do you see any potential for growth in those two areas?
(dianagram from VORGville)
Defense, no. Offense yes. I think there is more power in him, and as that develops, he'll end up drawing more walks without ever even improving his approach. He's not going to turn into a 80 walk guy, but he'll draw more. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-03-14 13:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, how do much playing time do you see the following guys getting: Zach Cozart, John Mayberry, Dayan Viciedo and Allen Craig? I see them all as potential fantasy sleepers. Thanks.
(DanDaMan from SeaCliff)
Can't say I strongly disagree with our Depth Charts on any of those guys. I think Cozart has the clearest route to playing time, and I'm cautiously optimistic. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Derek. Callups such as Moustakas and Ackley have recently deposed primary starters for teams. Which other current players do you see as short-timers in their starting line-up? One specific Q: Johnny Gia for Getz anytime soon? Thanks...
(LoyalRoyal from LV, KS)
I think we'll see Johnny Giavotella this season, but the Royals may look to extract some value via trade out of a guy like Getz beforehand. Other guys to look for in the near-term include Trayvon Robinson, Jason Kipnis, and Dayan Viciedo. There's talk Wily Mo Pena will get the call this week to DH and could force himself into the OF picture in Arizona if he hits. (Derek Carty)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, I absolutely love what you're bringing to BP. Welcome aboard. Keep it up. A player my son and I both love watching is Dayan Viciedo. He swings every swing like it's the last one of his life, and he wants to be remembered for it. Have you seen him play? Is there a position for him on the field? How much might his all-or-nothing approach limit him? What are the chances someone like Adam Dunn can help him learn to lay off crap and get better pitches to hit 480 feet? Ozzie says he wants to get him at-bats, so he's working out in RF. I hope that means on those days they would shift Quentin back to left. Thanks.
(GrinnellSteve from Grinnell)
Thanks. I've seen him play 3B, which was an experience. He just lacks the athleticism to offer much in the field. I like his bat, and his power is obviously legit, but the approach will suffocate him if he doesn't make the necessary adjustments. If he shows the aptitude for adjustment, his bat could be destructive in the middle of the order. (Jason Parks)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Prognosis for Dayan Viciedo?
(larry from chicago)
Now that he's a first baseman, he really needs to start hitting. I'm not overly optimistic. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)What has been the toughest call so far in the rankings?
(brian from brooklyn)
The toughest calls are usually players who are coming off well below expectation years, like Lars Anderson and Dayan Viciedo. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Generally speaking, where do you expect top international prospects such as Miguel Angel Sano, Wagner Mateo, Gary Sanchez and Aroldis Chapman to lie in BP's top 100? If I'm not mistaken, Michael Inoa and Dayan Viciedo were the only 2008 signees to make the list. How does this years crop differ from 2008?
(Grant Robinson from Ontario)
This is a question better answered by Kevin Goldstein or Kiley McDonald but it would seem to me that Sano, Mateo and Chapman would definitely be somewhere in the top 100 and I would think Sanchez would have a chance, too. Exactly where is a little out of my range of expertise. The international free agent market may not be exceptionally deep this year but there is a lot of high-end talent, especially Sano, Mateo and Chapman. (John Perrotto)
2009-05-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Dayan Viciedo: adjustment period needed or international signee hype?
(jaymoff from Salem, OR)
More A. than B. (Kevin Goldstein)
