BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any hope left that the Royals give Christian Colon a legit chance at 2B? Esp in light of the Carroll and Bonifacio acquisitions the past 2 days. Colon is hitting very well since the break and seems to be an in-house solution to the 2B hole they have.
(Rick from NY)
Colon is okay, but I don't really see an everyday guy there, and it's tough to make it as a utility guy who isn't going to provide you with a plus glove at shortstop and will just be "okay" with the bat. For the stretch drive, I understand the Royals wanting to go a little more veteran on the team. And although Colon is hitting well since the break, there isn't much thunder in the bat. The hit tool is okay, but I don't think the Royals are missing out on much upside by going with some more veteran guys in a playoff race. He'll probably get a look in the big leagues someday; it's just likely not anything to get too excited about. (Jason Cole)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've heard rumors that Christian Colon is still alive. Can you confirm this?
(mbarr4 from Flower Mound, TX)
No; he's very fat. (not really; just not very good). (Jason Parks)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)WHo has a longer major league career Jose Iglesias or Christian Colon?
(Ray from Minneapolis)
Iglesias can play in the majors for 10 years on the back of his glove alone. (Jason Parks)
