BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)Rank the following for 2017 and beyond: Blake Snell, Robert Gsellman, Jameson Taillon.
(Tim from CA)
Taillon quietly had a very good season at two levels, and I wouldn't be shocked this year if he takes a step forward and is at least a major league 2 (with the usual health caveats, and there's more there than with the other two). Past him I like both Snell and Gsellman, would take Gsellman today, maybe Snell tomorrow. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Robert Gsellman 17 overall? Please explain.
(Tim from NY)
I'm not a prospect ranker, so I didn't put him there. It's pretty easy to see the case for him, though: there's virtually no uncertainty. He's already performed well in the majors. No matter how good someone looks like A-ball or even Double-A, they still have to get to the majors. Gsellman got there and is there now, something a lot of High-A and even Double-A pitching prospects will never be able to say. (Scooter Hotz)
2017-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which side of the Robert Gsellman is really good vs Robert Gsellman isn't that good argument are you on?
(Q from NYC)
I'm of the opinion that Gsellman is really good, if only because Warthen seems to be able to take guys who I think will be bad (See: deGrom, Jacob) and mold them into mid-K, low walk geniuses. Gsellman wasn't just making due with a good ERA and bad peripherals either. I do think he might be in that rough luck 6th starter world for a bit, like a Tyler Lyons of Queens, which might take the shine off of him. But he can pitch, I'd wager, and I think he'll be a rotation mainstay after the Mets lose some of their top tier arms. (Trevor Strunk)
