BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-12-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jerry Sands is ineligible for your list so we won't get to here your opinion - do you think he can outhit Loney next year? What's his ceiling - solid average starter?
(Sanchez101 from Santa Barbara, CA)
I don't think it's some kind of slam dunk that he would. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Jerry Sands? He struggled when he got called up initially, but showed some talent in September. His splits in AAA are scary though right?
(VRP from LA)
I think he's a bat-only type who still has a lot to prove, and yes, his splits are disturbing. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-04-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is Jerry Sands gonna be able to do in the majors? Is he a 30 HR guy?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
30 is strong. I think he'll be a solid average every day corner OF, and that's a helluva player. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-04-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would Jerry Sands be an improvement over James Loney right now?
(Josh from Wyoming)
Right now Sands is a guy who has half a season of Double-A under his belt. While he might be able to outhit Loney RIGHT NOW, I think the Dodgers are better served by giving him a few months at Triple-A, not only to see if Loney can reverse his multi-year slide but also if putting Sands in left field could help the big club even more. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-04-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wouldn't Jerry Sands at RF, Trayvon Robinson at LF and Andre Ethier at 1B be a drastic improvement for the Dodgers?
(Scott from Irvine)
Robinson has more than a year at Double-A under his belt, so he's got that over Sands. The problem is that the projections don't exactly paint either as above-average contributors at key offensive positions, so expecting both to break in at the major league level and succeed right now is a tall, tall order. And that's without considering how little experience at first base Ethier has. (Jay Jaffe)
