BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your favorite "sleeper" prospect in the Nationals system? Pick one, Addison Russell or Francisco Lindor? Finally, what's your favorite restaurant in Delray? Thanks-
(NatsGM from Bethesda MD)
The Nats system isn't super exciting, but there are some dudes. I really like Zach Walters, though i dont know if he qualifies as a sleeper, and that's probably just because I love prospects who profile as super-utility guys (for no particular reason). I don't know if Walters can play every day but I think he can be a valuable guy on a roster because he can play all over, switch-hits and has some pop. I like valuable, versatile roster guys like that.

Lindor is so #smooth in the field it's ridiculous, but Russell has more upside with the bat because of his power. It's a toss up for which you prefer, but I like Russell a little since I've read some encouraging reports about his ability to stay at short. If that changes, I'll take Lindor all day.

Favorite restaurant in Delray is Park Tavern on Atlantic Ave. I've never had a bad meal there. In fact, I can see it from where I'm sitting right now. (Jeff Moore)
