DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Billy Burns, does he have a chance sometime soon to see some big-league level action? The A's OF is underwhelming at best right now. I think Burns can out "Hamilton" Billy Hamilton. What's the delay???
(Max from Oaktown)
I don't see it with Burns. He's an incredible runner and he controls the zone well, but I don't think he'll hit against advanced pitching and he's not a true center field defender. He's an extra outfield/bench guy for me and I don't see any reason the A's should be pushing to bring him up quickly. (Mark Anderson)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Billy Burns a legit prospect? Or just a guy with some speed?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Just a guy with some speed. (Ronit Shah)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts about Oakland's Billy Burns?
(Gary from New Jersey)
I'd pay to see him take on Mike O'Neill in an on-base-off/home run derby/fight to the death. (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Billy Burns? Little guy who got on base but have heard he isnt a guy
(Eric from Ann Arbor)
I've got him pegged as a 4th or 5th OF if everything goes well. (Mark Anderson)
