DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)What the heck ever happened to Karsten Whitson? Wasn't he a top draft prospect at one point?
(Shauncore from KC)
Injured, TJ surgery, hasn't fully regained his feel. If he's singable he could be an upside pick along the lines of Christian Jones last year. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)rebuffed by Karsten Whitson. Is having Joe Ross heal that wound?
(Hugo from walkonair@mindspring.com)
I'm not sure that anything can heal the wound inflicted by the Whitson situation, but between Ross, Cory Spangenberg, and Austin Hedges, the Padres managed to make lemonade. At least one of those guys should turn into something. Hedges in particular intrigues me. (Geoff Young)
