BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Michael Lorenzen? Is he going to stay a starter? One "scouts are saying" said that he could even be better than Stephenson. Is this just hyperbole or is that even 1% possible?
(Norris from Chicago)
That was a real quote from a real scout, so at least someone thinks that that's true, though most of our guys who have seen both seemed to think that it was a little extreme. Still, he's made a complete turnaround this season as far as when it comes to staying as a starter, which has changed his entire profile as a prospect. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Folow-up to the Michael Lorenzen question... I have heard some people even prefer Ben Lively to Lorenzen. What futures do you see these two?
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
Those people aren't watching Lively or Lorenzen in person. I haven't seen either one either, but our guys have and I trust their reports. Lively got off to a great start this year but the stuff isn't dominant. He's a back-end guy. Lorenzen has a number two starter ceiling or could be an impact reliever. Lorenzen is closer to Stephenson than he is to Lively. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)There have been glowing reports and not so glowing on Michael Lorenzen. His strikeouts don't seem to match the natural stuff; also there are reports of a curveball coming along. What have you seen/heard?
(Norris from Chicago)
I've heard some excellent things about Lorenzen. He's new to starting, and was a two way player in college, so the fact he's even having success at the AA level is exciting. I don't believe he has bat missing stuff quite yet, but he's a supreme athlete with some feel for pitching. The profile is more of a mid rotation to good #4 type, but I like him quite a bit. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wut nu jointz is slammin in ya speakers theez dayz brah?
(Slama Lama from Ding Dong)
I don't know what this question is about but I also got a vote for Michael Lorenzen on that keeper league question. (R.J. Anderson)
