BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looks like the Padres and Pirates just struck a deal. Jaff Decker and Miles Mikolas to the Pirates for first baseman/outfielder Alex Dickerson. Have any hot takes on the swap or the players?
(Chase from California)
It doesn't do anything for me on any level. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Schwarber can mash. But do you think he can stick behind the plate?
(patmhickey from Evansville, Ind.)
You touched on the biggest chink in his draft stock armor. I guess you run him out there as long as you can, but he's not a catcher for me. Maybe you can hide him in left? I don't love the fit at first base, either. Might end-up being handled similar to fellow Hoosier Alex Dickerson.

It'll also be dependent on who drafts him, right? Some orgs have shown a high level of tolerance for poor catcher defense in the name of offensive potential, whereas others wouldn't allow him to bring the tools of ignorance to the field. (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alex Dickerson will never be a top prospect, but do you think he can be a decent starting 1st baseman in 2015.
(Dave from Pittsburgh)
He's a geared-to-pull lefty with maybe 55 playable pop and plays an "okay" first base. For my money that's a situational lefty bat off the bench, which is not without value for an NL club. (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a keeper league that includes a 12 player minor league roster for the future. I currently own Stetson Allie and Rafael De Paula, my question is would you drop either or both of them for any of the following players: Alex Dickerson, Franklin Barreto, Eddie Butler, Lucas Sims? Thanks for your help!
(Jeff from Kansas City)
I'd take all of those guys over Allie, and especially Butler and Sims. (Jason Cole)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Any reason to get excited about Alex Dickerson?
(Dave from Pittsburgh)
I don't really think so, his defense is well below average, and I don't think he hits nearly enough to play first. He's most likely a solid 4A guy that is able to get a few cups of coffee. (Zach Mortimer)
