BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ethan Martin had a very solid year in 2012. Is this what we can expect going forward?
(raygu1 from Burlington, NJ)
I would expect periods of inconsistency followed by periods of intense awesomeness. I think he has the type of arm strength and arsenal to emerge as a promising late-inning option, and with more arsenal consistency, he can get there soon. But I'd keep developing him in his current to help with command refinement. In the end, I still see a reliever. (Jason Parks)
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What makes the Dodgers' Ethan Martin so devastatingly good?
(SprungOnSports from Long Island)
Plus fastball and plus plus curve. That's not the question. The question is why is he so devastatingly bad about once every three outings. (Kevin Goldstein)
