BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank the current and former KC Cougar starting pitchers - Jen-Ho Tseng, Paul Blackburn, Daury Torrez, Duane Underwood and Juan Paniagua (no need to ask about Tyler Skulina as I know he'd be at the bottom of your list)?
(Navin from Pasadena, CA)
Tseng, Underwood, Blackburn, Torrez, Paniagua, Skulina (yeah I don't like Tyler much) (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Since you go to Kane County a lot have you seen Tyler Skulina at all? He was obviously way to good for Kent State and the MAC
(David from Cleveland)
I have, and came away very underwhelmed. 87-90, and long, long arm swing. Arm is still back by his hip at release. Curveball floats, and is fringy. CH is unrefined. Borderline NP, unless he gets the velo back. (Jordan Gorosh)
2013-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Kent State starting pitcher Tyler Skulina? First round talent?
(BobcatBaseball from Athens, OH)
I like Skulina and hope to get a couple of looks at him this spring when I swing through Indiana/Ohio (two trips planned). More of a top 100 guy than top 30 guy for me right now. (Nick Faleris)
