BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did any prospect come to camp who drastically improved/got worse to the point where it greatly changed your opinion of their ceilings?
(MonkeyEpoxy from Amarillo)
A few: Chris Bostick with the Rangers looked a lot better than I expected. It's a 2B profile, but I'm sold this kid can hit, which could make him more than just a utility option down the line. He really impressed me. I wasn't especially high on A's BJ Boyd coming in, but I dropped him a grade after seeing his spring physique and swing at the plate. I'm not a fan. I wanted to like Courtney Hawkins more but I just can't go high on the guy. It's not a role 3 or anything because of the power potential and athleticism, but I can't put a major league regular grade on him. He's a 4 for me. (Jason Parks)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have an under the radar prospect or someone that isn't getting any love that you want to tout?
(chris from Phoenix)
I know he's known already, and had a pretty rough year but I still like Gabriel Guerrero a bunch. Other candidates include Chris Bostick, and Nick Williams, though both have received love. (Craig Goldstein)
