BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-29 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the bigger upside: Dylan Baker, Blake Snell, or Branden Kline?
(Silverback38 from VA)
Snell has the biggest upside. (Bret Sayre)
2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)There are a couple of names that I see frequently, Blake Snell and Dylan Baker. What do you know of these guys and who has the higher 'achievable' upside?
(Silverback38 from VA)
I don't know that much on Snell but know he has some arm strength. I saw his velocity was in the upper 90s last start. I have missed Baker somehow over his last few starts. I will see him this year, at some point, hopefully soon. I know he is mid-90s with some command. I would say Baker has the more achievable upside. (CJ Wittmann)
2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is it Moncada time yet in Greenville? IF not, to hold me over til then...who ya got in a FSL smack down between Alex Reyes and Blake Snell?
(Handsome NAMBER from Mortville)
Hagerstown in a couple of weeks. And Alex Reyes. (CJ Wittmann)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has higher upside betwwen Blake Snell and Henry Owens?
(Mellens from Boston)
I will take Owens. I think he has a better feel for pitching and the top two pitches will end up being more impressive than Snell. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Two questions in one: Have you put eyed on Blake Snell this year? any concern about his big walk rates? Hunter Dozier's plate discipline looks good so far in the Pioneer league. What do you expect as he moves up to A ball? Also does his defense profile anywhere but 3b?
(AnthopoJays from Houston )
I haven't seen Snell personally, but I talked to a scout who really believed in him. Snell is still working on mechanics and the command should improve going forward. Dozier is putting up solid numbers in the Pioneer League, but from the video I've seen it looks like he's a 3B going forward. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are any of these arm prospects going to make an impact in 2 years for fantasy owners?: Roberto Osuna, Lucas Giolito, Heath Hembree, Matt Wisler, or Blake Snell?
(Hector from Santa Ana)
I'd bet on Wisler of that group. Hembree should be a major leaguer, but we'll see if he's doing anything of fantasy import. (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Bret, I play in a fairly deep competitive keeper league 16 team with a 20 man minor system. I am always looking for the edge in future top prospects as they carry quite the value in mid season trades etc. In 2011 I was able to grab a pre breakout Taveras and Bogaerts, since that year I am always looking for prospects who look to really make that jump from back end or outside the top 100 to future top 30 stud. I was wondering if you had some names to watch in A and Low A, that could make these leaps, particularly position players. Alen Hanson and Polanco are already picked up, Adalberto Mondesi is spoken for as well, trying to stay ahead of my competition.
(Brandon from Toronto)
If you want a few off the radar names, how about Zach Eflin and Dilson Herrera. And if you don't need to dig quite that deep, check out Dorssys Paulino, Blake Snell, Jeimer Candelario and Joe Ross. (Bret Sayre)
