BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will we ever see a hitter like Tony Gwynn again? Who draws the closest comp in the Eastern and Carolina Leagues?
(Steve from Los Angeles)
Nope.

There is not one player in the Eastern and Carolina Leagues even remotely close to him. But for the sake of the question, here are the best hit tools I've seen in both leagues:

Carolina - Nick Williams
Eastern - Francisco Lindor

Side Note: Gwynn's tragedy allowed the light to go off in my head, and I have now quit dipping. I hope many others have decided to quit after we lost such a great man. (Tucker Blair)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 12 team keeper league. each team gets to keep 7 players for next season. who do you think i should keep from this list: George Springer, Bryce Harper, Chris Sale, Justin Upton, Byron Buxton, Addison Russell, Taijuan Walker, Lucas Giolito, Francisco Lindor, Dylan Bundy, Kevin Gausmann, Carlos Correa, Miguel Sano, Zach Wheeler. Thanks.
(childgrambino from Richmond, VA)
Harper, Sale, Upton, Walker, Gausman, Wheeler and Springer. 12 team leagues, you keep guys who are contributing. Having this many prospects in this shallow a league is bananas. Drop a bunch. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-31 19:30:00 (link to chat)Francisco Lindor's timetable moved up at all?
(SBP from Indiana)
Sure. I'd assume he's up sometime soon. Better MLB prospect than a fantasy one, but still a good fantasy prospect. (Ben Carsley)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Indians have any parts to trade that could actually bring back legit prospects? Outside of core group they will obviously keep.
(Mark from Las Vegas)
They're not making any significant moves without trading Francisco Lindor, and theyíre not trading Francisco Lindor. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)How far back will Correa's injury push his big league debut? Does this push either Addison Russell or Francisco Lindor above him in terms of best SS prospect?
(Graham from Richmond, VA)
In terms of talent, he could play SS in the major leagues today. I'm sure of it. There are some who would take Lindor over Correa, but I don't think that has anything to do with the injury as much as Lindor himself. Russell is a downright impressive prospect, but he's a tier behind each of the other two. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat Jeff and the excellent work on MLU.. Bunch of questions for you - Addison Russell or Francisco Lindor? High Ceiling or High Floor? Eduardo Rodriguez or A.J. Cole? Favorite Sleeper prospect in the Nationals system? City Oyster or 32 East? Best Sports Bar in Delray?
(NatsGM from Bethesda MD)
We had this discussion as a staff the other day and included Baez and Correa in the mix. I went with Lindor. Here's the link:

There's no right or wrong, so much as just a preference. Same with Rodriguez vs. Cole. Do you like ceiling or floor? Cole could be the better pitcher, but he could also be a reliever still. Sometimes it's just a preference.

You want food in Delray? Go to Park Tavern. You simply can't beat it, and order an Old Fashioned. My favorite sports bar is a little dive called The Hurricane because it's an Eagles bar and they put the game on every Sunday and it's filled with other idiots in Randal Cunningham throwbacks to make me feel better about myself.

2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Francisco Lindor definitely starts the season at Double-A right? The answer determines if I get to go watch the plus-plus defender or not...
(Ace Black from PA)
Sounds like it. I haven't seen the official word, though. (Ronit Shah)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Lindor Question #2: Why haven't the Indians traded Asdrubal Cabrera yet?
(Ace Black from PA)
Because, as you just said, Francisco Lindor will likely be starting the season in Double-A. (Ronit Shah)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your favorite "sleeper" prospect in the Nationals system? Pick one, Addison Russell or Francisco Lindor? Finally, what's your favorite restaurant in Delray? Thanks-
(NatsGM from Bethesda MD)
The Nats system isn't super exciting, but there are some dudes. I really like Zach Walters, though i dont know if he qualifies as a sleeper, and that's probably just because I love prospects who profile as super-utility guys (for no particular reason). I don't know if Walters can play every day but I think he can be a valuable guy on a roster because he can play all over, switch-hits and has some pop. I like valuable, versatile roster guys like that.

Lindor is so #smooth in the field it's ridiculous, but Russell has more upside with the bat because of his power. It's a toss up for which you prefer, but I like Russell a little since I've read some encouraging reports about his ability to stay at short. If that changes, I'll take Lindor all day.

Favorite restaurant in Delray is Park Tavern on Atlantic Ave. I've never had a bad meal there. In fact, I can see it from where I'm sitting right now. (Jeff Moore)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)What top prospect has the best mustache?
(richardkr34 from Saint Paul, MN)
I would love to see Francisco Lindor grow a thick mustache. I believe he has the necessary facial aesthetics for it. (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Welcome Ben, I'll start you off with a curveball: Let's say every draft eligible prospect from 2010 to 2014 was eligible for this year's draft. Just based on pre-draft scouting reports and without the benefit of hindsight, how would the first 10 picks of the draft unfold?
(baseballjunkie from cali, where it's already Spring)
This is an amazingly difficult question to answer, and also quite fun. Itís probably better suited for an article than for a fantasy chat answer, but since I was able to access this question ahead of time, hereís what I came up with after about 30 min of research. Iíll note that since Iím not familiar enough with 2014 prospects yet, Iíve restricted your search to 2010-2013 draftees. Iíll go with:

1. Bryce Harper 2. Manny Machado 3. Gerrit Cole 4. Dylan Bundy 5. Anthony Rendon 6. Jameson Taillon 7. Bubba Starling
8. Byron Buxton 9. Carlos Correa 10. Archie Bradley

Toughest omissions for me were Francisco Lindor, Trevor Bauer, Kevin Gausman, Kris Bryant and Mark Appel. If Luc Giolito had been healthy for his senior year, heíd probably have made it on this list. Obviously thatís not how weíd rank them now, and itís funny that guys like Chris Sale, Jose Fernandez, Matt Harvey and Javier Baez are left in the dust. Bubba Starling sticks out like a sore thumb, and Buxton was underrated. This exercise also reinforces how loaded the 2011 draft was. Last yearís pales in comparison. (Ben Carsley)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Considering something like 70% of the top 100 prospects fail to meet expectations/stay in baseball for long, which 3 players in this years top 10 do you think will have the most successful careers?
(John Niggli from Lagos)
I think the top tier of fantasy prospects goes Bogaerts, Baez, Buxton, Taveras in that order. Then there's a dropoff to Hamilton at No. 5, for me. I think you can rank the first four in any order. If you want me to pick three of the "safest" prospects, let's go Bogaerts, Taveras and Francisco Lindor. (Ben Carsley)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff: Could you describe a three-day weekend of Cactus League games you'd like to take in? What teams would you watch, and what will you be looking for?
(gerrybraun from san diego)
Unfortunately Iím stuck in Grapefruit country, but if I was going to Arizona again this spring, Iíd be sure to check out Cubs, Rockies and Rangers. Thatís probably your best bet to see young talent on the back fields, assuming you can get there. And if you have time, go see Francisco Lindor field ground balls in batting practice. And take your kid, if you have one. You wonít see a better exhibition of fluidity and grace with a glove than that.

If youíre looking to go to games, Camelback Ranch (White Sox and Dodgers) is one of my favorite parks. Itís just really scenic. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)Alright Jason. You're at a scientific lab (a cloning facility) and you're given the opportunity to splice DNA together of two different ball players to make the perfect player. Which two players' DNA do you choose?
(LanceR from Dallas, TX)
Francisco Lindor and Javier Baez. It would create a highly instinctual shortstop with a plus-plus arm, plus-plus glove, elite power potential in combination with a mature approach from both sides of the plate. JF Lindor-Baez (Jason Parks)
2013-10-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Francisco Lindor gets the call by ____ and produces as a top ____ SS
(Ziggy from Marley)
Could be next year, by the end of the season. That said, Cleveland still has Asdrubal Cabrera under contract next season ($10 million). They could trade him, but Lindor isn't ready now, so they'd need a stop-gap at shortstop and by definition stop-gaps aren't as good as non-stop-gaps so the team would likely be taking a hit there. I'd guess they'll hold on to Cabrera and if they're not in contention by the deadline, they'll deal him and in a perfect world, Lindor would be knocking down the door to the majors in Triple-A at that point and they could just call him up.

But I'll say he gets a September call up and rides the bench mostly. (Matthew Kory)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could Francisco Lindor be ready by June/July making Asdrubal (although limited trade value as mentioned previously) expendable? In your mind, does he project as a 290avg/385obp/12hr/25sb type leadoff guy?
(Ziggy from Top)
Lindor could certainly be ready next year, and has enough value in his glove that the team could break camp with him at the six spot. That offensive line is attainable, but I would expect a few seasons before he hits for that power, and he's not a surefire 20+ SB guy. I see him as a #1 or #2 hitter, long term, that will help you on all sides of the ball. (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Whats your thoughts on Francisco Lindor making the Indians roster next year.
(Kyle from Wilmington)
I really think it is going to happen. I wonder what type of offer they will get for A. Cabrera, but Lindor is not far from being able to play everyday in the majors. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)I got my 1st live look at the man of my dreams, Miguel Sano, on Tuesday night in New Britain. He hit an absolute bomb into the trees in LF (and that's under-stating it). My question is, can I have the name/number of the guy who painted your Francisco Lindor mural? I want one of Miguel Sano right above my bed so I can stare at him every night before bed.
(Shawn from CT)
Gilbert and George painted the mural of Lindor. They seemed like the appropriate choice. (Jason Parks)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)I think you rank Byron Buxton so high, he is good, but not better than Carlos Correa , Xander Bogaerts and Francisco Lindor. I meant that you overrated Byron Buxton because he didn't hit for power yet.
(Kevin Goldstein from Houston)
You mad, bro? (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)

2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What prospects stand out to you in having a feel for the game ?
(Derek from Cali)
Jurickson Profar was one who absolutely did as early as 16. You could tell the same about Francisco Lindor right out of high school. Lindor is probably the go-to answer on that question right now. (Jason Cole)

I can:
1. Addison Russell

3. Taijuan Walker
4. Archie Bradley
5. Aaron Sanchez
6. Byron Buxton
7. Jameson Taillon
8. Robert Stephenson
9. Francisco Lindor
10. Austin Hedges (Jason Parks)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think the long term fantasy expectations should be for Francisco Lindor compared to the likes of Baez, Correa, and Russell?
(Mikey from Salt Lake City)
Mikey, all are extremely talented players, but Lindor is a tier below without the same power potential. (Paul Singman)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Just joining the chat... what would you predict Francisco Lindor's offensive upside to be at his prime? Thanks!
(Chopper from Indy)
~.280 avg; good secondary skills; doubles pop; 6+ defensive profile at a premium spot (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What prospect that will spend the majority of the season in the minors are you most excited to see play (and you cannot pick the obvious answers like Bundy, Taveras, or Hamilton!)?
(Jake from Kansas)
Francisco Lindor (CLE) or Brian Goodwin (WAS) (Paul Sporer)

2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will Francisco Lindor development into a top 10 fantasy SS in the future? Or should I look into drafting someone like Addison Russell in my dynasty league for insurance? Thanks.
(James from Cleveland)
I'm not sure Lindor has enough power to profile as an elite fantasy player, at least in the standard 5x5 format. And it can't hurt to have both of them, right? (Daniel Rathman)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Other than Profar, Taveras, Myers and Bundy whom I anticipate ranking in the top 5 of most top prospect lists, who are the remaining top 3-5 offensive and SP prospects in the minors?
(Brian from Worcester MA)
On the pitching side you're looking at guys like Gerrit Cole, Zack Wheeler, Jose Fernandez and Jameson Taillon fitting in that top group. Of the position players, Byron Buxton, Travis d'Arnaud, Xander Bogaerts, and Francisco Lindor fit the bill. (Mark Anderson)
2012-12-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chris, what is Francisco Lindor's ceiling with his bat? A switch hitting SS that has a good chance to stick at SS doesn't come around very often. How excited should I be about this kid? Thanks for the chat!
(Jake from Indiana)
I think you should be excited, Jake. Lindor's a very good prospect at a premium position. You're looking at a high contact hitting ceiling with the bat. A player that can hit balls hard on a line, plug gaps, and use the whole field. There's a lot of development to go and some gates to pass, but potentially a top-of-the-order type and strong defender. (Chris Mellen)
2013-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)It seems like people are really high on Francisco Lindor, but he really seemed to struggle in the second half of the season last year. Do you know what happened? Did he tire due to the longer season and travel, or did the results not match what scouts were seeing?
(ttt from Manhattan)
Young kid in a tough league during his first full pro season. I did not myself see, nor have I heard from others, any concern. He's a dude; he's going to be a good pro player. (Nick Faleris)

(Patrick from Boston)
Lindor if the bat explodes, but I don't really see it happening like that. I think it will be a tools freak that happens to put it together. Those are the #1 types. Like if a guy like Buxton or Starling explode. (Jason Parks)
2012-10-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)After Profar, rank in hotness the next level of upcoming minor league short stops from a list of Francisco Lindor, Addison Russell, Javier Baez, Hak-Ju Lee, Trevor Story, and Carlos Correa.
(Paul from DC)
Baez, Lindor, Russell, Story, Correa, Lee, but I'm assuming you're asking me to rank them purely be physical attractiveness. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-08-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)You have just finished watching a complex league game. You saw, for the first time, a player you had never before heard about. He is now your favorite prospect ever, filling you with feelings of Francisco Lindor, Oscar Taveres and Yu Darvish, held together by Willie Mays' maple syrup and choir robe. What position does he play? Where is he from? What makes him so special? Have you ever stumbled onto such a prospect without any prior knowledge of the kid's existence?
(Nick from Michigan)
He plays shortstop; he's special because he's 6'7'' and weighs 250 lbs; he hits bombs, he steals bases, and he thinks Mike Trout's ceiling is a bag of #slack. He's the first of his kind; the wave of the future. Power-forward body with Venezuelan shortstop actions, Mike Trout's speed, and Stanton's power. He's also a sweetheart that has grit. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Francisco Lindor know that you have a man crush on him?
(The Coach from Wisconsin)
I've never had a conversation with him about it. I assume the majority of people who have seen him play have a similar crush. I just have a platform to declare my love. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, Jason. Thanks for the chat. So I've noticed a lot of similarities in what I'm hearing about Francisco Lindor relative to Jurickson Profar a year ago: does everything well, supremely polished for the age, lacks a huge offensive ceiling. This year Profar revised our expectations of him, particularly. I guess I'm trying to understand whether this well-rounded, extremely solid/polished skillset plays up (above expectations), or whether it was a true tools-based breakout. And of course I'm wondering whether the same might be expected of Lindor. Thanks for the chat and the dispatches from Arizona. I loved the bit about the dog.
(Rob from Alaska)
Here's the thing with Profar: I don't think his breakout season altered his ceiling, at least not in my mind. What it did was raise his floor, which was already very high. Profar is a first-division shortstop waiting to happen, and he might be an all-star shortstop before the music stops. His floor is basically a starting major leaguer at a premium defensive position. He is going to be very good. The only question is how good is how soon? Lindor is similar in the sense that his floor is remarkably high, and his current polish and maturity allows those that have seen him in person to paint an accurate picture of the type of player he is going to be. Like Profar, Lindor has everything you want to see in a starting SS at the major league level; instincts out the ass, + arm, + glove. Add to the mix a very good bat, a very mature approach, and some pop. It's a great combination. They are both going to play in the majors for over a decade. They are the shortstops of the future.
