BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What type of fantasy impact can Chris Rusin have next year? What type of career do you see him having? The Cubs seem to like him...can he pitch in a rotation over time?
(Bryant from Dearborn, MI)
Very little. It's more of a middle relief profile for me long-term for me. (Bret Sayre)
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)By this time in 2014, Chris Rusin is: a) In Chicago's rotation? b) a mop-up guy in the bullpen? c) In Iowa? Is there any reason to think Rusin can continue to get major league hitters out missing as few bats as he does?
(sitrick2 from Minneapolis, MN)
Guys like Rusin make me nervous. I'd like to see how his cutter plays out of the bullpen, but I really feel like he's a sixth/seventh starter type. Iowa or Chicago depends on the health of other people, in that case. (Harry Pavlidis)
