DateQuestionAnswer
2011-08-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)What is your opinion of Bobby Borchering? How many years till he's in the bigs?
(Mike from FL)
He's striking out even more than he did last year which is never a good sign for me. 48 XBH is nice in the stat line, but it is the Cal League. Can he make the kind of jump that Goldschmidt did this season coming out of that league? Nah, but in a deep NL league, I take a flier on him. (Jason Collette)
