DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-07 19:00:00 (link to chat)Looking ahead to 2017, the A's appear to have 3/5 of their rotation, assuming health, locked in for before the trading deadline: Sonny Gray, Sean Manaea, and Kendall Graveman. Out of Jesse Hahn, Chris Bassitt, Henderson Alvarez, Daniel Mengden, Jharel Cotton, Raul Alcantara, Dillon Overton, and Frankie Montas, who can round out the rotation, who is more of a 4A player, and who just won't every be healthy enough again (looking at you, Jesse Hahn and Henderson Alvarez!)?
(Greg from San Francisco)
I'm mostly going to have to go off colleagues' reports, because I don't get any Oakland affiliates out here on the east coast. Seems to me like Mengden, Overton, and Alcantara have the best shots to be MLB starters, whereas Montas and Cotton might be better prospects but also probably profile best in relief. That may be completely wrong, though.

Hard not to feel for Henderson Alvarez given how his last couple years have went. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-02-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)your personal favorite prospects outside of the top 101?
(JoeRandom from San Jose)
I'm terrible at this off the top of my head. Demi Orimoloye, Harrison Bader, and Jharel Cotton are some personal favorites that are probably well off the 101. (Greg Wellemeyer)
