BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is Bobby Wahl going to stay in the bullpen longterm? Or do you think the A's organization brings him into Spring Training as a starter next year?
(Steve from Oakland)
He sure looked like a reliever to me. Came out there to rage against the machine (personal favorite) and was rearing back and throwing as hard as he could. 95-97 with life. Plenty of effort in the delivery. I think he succeeds in the pen, and the arm could be impact, especially with the big time breaking ball. Just let him focus on getting three outs-- could be really good at it. (Jordan Gorosh)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Outside the top 10 draftees, has anyone other than JPCrawford improved his stock by a large margin?
(tr from Here )
Since the draft? Absolutely. Hunter Harvey, Bobby Wahl and Devin Williams are a few guys whose prospect stock look significantly better than their draft slot. (Bret Sayre)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was surprised to see Bobby Wahl rank so high for the A's. Is that more of a function of Wahl's talent and ceiling, or the A's being nearly bereft of prospects after Addison Russell?
(John from San Francisco)
Well, he likely wouldn't be so high in most other orgs, but it's also a function of his talent and ceiling. He's a real arm and a guy to closely track in dynasty drafts beyond the first 20 picks or so. (Bret Sayre)
