BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)C.J. Cron continued to hit in AFL and was used in middle of the order in most cases. Do you see him as a full time MLB 1b?
(TRAVS HOUND from Arkansas )
That's a stretch for me. I don't see the approach and hit tool playing to such a level that his power can fully come through at the Major League level. He's more of a second division type for me. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think -- like he seems to think -- that C.J. Cron could catch? Or is he just saying whatever to get to the MLB quicker?
(Free Boosie from ATL)
Well, he's got the running speed of a catcher. But Cron is a huge man, and huge men are already at a disadvantage. More importantly, the curve for catcher defense really requires a ton of experience. It seems unfathomable to me that he could start now and have any hope at all of catching and pitch-calling at even a Double-A skill level, let alone major-league skill level, let alone Mike Scioscia-required skill level. Without doing nearly enough research/thinking to crush the young man's dreams, I feel pretty confident saying "wat" (Sam Miller)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Not that I believe they are deserving, but were C.J. Cron or Nick Maronde of the Angels anywhere near the Top 101?
(Teacher from Chico)
They weren't anywhere near it, which just means they weren't in the discussion. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
