DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Richie Shaffer(TB) have a chance to be a regular 1B/OF type?
(Chris from Texas)
I have a hard time getting there with Shaffer. I think he's going to struggle to hit, which will limit the in-game power production. If he doesn't have that, he doesn't fit that role very well from an offensive standpoint. (Mark Anderson)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mark, Here's one right down the middle for you... What is your biggest surprise performance from the AFL so far?
(captnamerca from sinkhole city, FL)
It's hard to say anything is that surpring in the AFL, because strange things happen out there, but if I had to pick one big performance that has surprised me the most, I'd say Richie Shaffer...and that's not a good thing. For a big, strong guy like him, his complete in ability to hit for power in that offensive environment borders on alarming. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Richie Shaffer, what's holding him back?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Shaffer needs to provide more punch at the plate. If he wants profile as an everyday regular Shaffer is going to need to hit for the power that Third Base requires. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)What does Richie Shaffer have to do or prove to you that he deserves to be on the BP101?
(jlarsen from Chicago)
Have a better overall profile and continue to rake. If the bat continues, he will be a top 101 guy. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
