BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)If I told I thought Dixon Machado could hit somewhere in the .270s over the course of a full season what level of crazy would you call me? And how valuable would Machado be if he could do that (not that .270 is all that great)?
(ProBeauNO from New Orleans)
If Machado could hit .270 and get on base in the .300 to .320 range, he'd be enormously valuable. That isn't going to happen. Not on a consistent, non crazy lucky BABIP basis, anyway. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)How does Leury Garcia have a plus arm given his size?
(Brad from Bean Town)
Arm strength knows no bounds. Some guys can just let it fly thanks to arm speed and the way their anatomy works. Dixon Machado is about as thick as a #2 pencil and when he unleashes a throw it's like a freakin' carnival ride; you just sit back and say "Weeeeee!" Some guys are just blessed with the ability to chuck it. (Mark Anderson)
