BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)How much time do you think Marc Krauss will get this year for the Astros? More importantly how well do you believe he will do?
(BobcatBaseball from Athens, OH)
Don't know a lot about him but the Astros' OF/DH/1B scene is pretty crowded this year and based solely on the stats, he doesn't look like a guy who's close to forcing his way into the picture. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any predictions as to players that Houston, Cubs, Twins and other bottom feeders might take a flyer on in the Rule V draft? From what I've seen, it doesn't look like a very appetizing bunch to choose from, but have I missed anything?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Seems like Josh Fields and Marc Krauss could be off the board early. I've read Randy Henry, Chris McGuiness...but temper your expectations, since there aren't impact players that often. It won't happen, but how fun would it be if some team selected Pat Venditte, the Yankees' ambidextrous reliever? So fun. That's how fun it would be. I believe he's eligible for the first time. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-08-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us an ETA for Marc Krauss to the Majors, a reasonable ceiling and a best-case ceiling?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Letís say 2014 for the ETA. I suppose Houston could push him up in September to get an up-close look, but I donít know if theyíll do that. Iím no good with comparisons, but Adam Dunn (without elite power) is the one that gets thrown around a lot with Krauss. Of course, Adam Dunn without elite power isnít Adam Dunn, but thatís the danger with comparisons. (R.J. Anderson)
