DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Sam, I'm in a dynasty league and was wondering your thoughts on a couple of 2B, Scooter Gennett & Derek Dietrich.
(Ernie from Knoxville,TN)
From: bit.ly/16wYMP2 So what’s the story behind your nickname?
I was big fan of “Muppet Babies” (the animated cartoon series that originally ran from 1984 to 1991) when I was little, and (Scooter) was my favorite character. I was in the car with my mom one day – and she had no idea about the Scooter thing – and she had me put on my seatbelt and I’d click it off. She’d put it on and I’d click it off. I was just real bad. She took me to the police station to have a cop kind of scare me: “Wear your seatbelt and listen to your mom.” He asked me for my name and I said, “Scooter Gennett,” and my mom was taken aback. And after that I guess I felt like if I told them my real name I was going to get arrested. After that, I never answered to Ryan for the next year or two. So Scooter just kind of stuck.



As far as fantasy prospects go, though, I'd take the other one. (Sam Miller)
2013-04-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which game are you watching?
(Truman from Seahaven)
The Astros game, of course. Always the Astros game.

Derek Dietrich's grandfather was, according to Derek Dietrich, "was one of the best hitters in the minor leagues when he played." Looking him up, just one second...

Ok, his name was Steve Demeter, 5'9" pinch-hitter/third baseman in two seasons in the majors. Born in Homer City, which now is going to make me look up all the other players from Homer City, or cities with names that sound like they should produce good baseball players. Demeter was a .290/.333/.461 hitter in the minors, more than 9,000 (!!!) plate appearances, 272 career minor league home runs which can't be all that far from the record. Some good seasons. (Sam Miller)
2012-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Derek Dietrich become a second division starter in the majors?
(Glow from Memphis)
I think so, maybe even a little more. I've always been a fan, though he's a longshot to stick at shortstop as he climbs the ladder. Nice pop, respectable average, solid-enough glove if he moves to third base. (Bradley Ankrom)
