BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)I know the BP prospect team is down on Jake Lamb, is his performance unsustainable? ie should I be shopping him?
(EricJ from SF)
I like him better than they do (I guess; I haven't read what you're referencing). He's probably not going to hit 25-30 home runs, but 20 isn't out of the question even if the BA is low. I guess if people are expecting Ryan Zimmerman 2.0 in your league you should shop him, otherwise hang on. Yasmany Tomas isn't replacing him. (Mike Gianella)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these K machines do you have high hopes for or do you see them all flaming out? Domingo Santana, Jake Lamb, Randal Grichuk, Steven Moya, Yorman Rodriguez. Will any of these guys have long careers as starters? Which has the highest upside and who will flame out?
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena, CA)
I can't say that I have high hopes for any of them because of the aforementioned strike out issues, but Lamb's are perhaps the most under control and he should be able to pop enough mistakes out of the park for third base. At least with a guy like Santana, he draws some walks to go with the strike outs. Can't say the same about Moya. Not sure that any of them end up being regulars for any extended period of time. (Jeff Moore)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)How many MLB at bats for Brandon Drury this year?
(Chris from Baltimore)
Good redeeming question Chris. Youíre as cool as the other side of the pillow.

Druryís PT this year will depend on a number of things, most of them positional. How well will he take to 2B? There have been limited looks at him there because heís only played there sparingly, but it does create versatility and more opportunities. Secondly, how much 3B does Tomas end up playing? That would create a much bigger obstacle for Drury than Jake Lamb currently is (though Lamb will be blocking him too).

In the end, he only has 29 games in Double-A under his belt, so thereís no guarantee he even reaches the big leagues this year. He just turned 22, has more development to go, and lots of guys blocking him. He may not even see the majors this year, and thatís ok. (Jeff Moore)
2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)Could you rank these bats for future careers: Christian Walker, Jake Lamb, CJ Cron, Rymer Liriano.
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena, CA)
Liriano, Cron, Lamb, Walker. I'll add that Liriano has the most beta in him and could absolutely flame out, but the blend of tools provides the highest ceiling as well. He's someone I'm willing to gamble on given his proven ability to respond to failure. That's something I like to see in a prospect. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the D'Backs have in Jacob Lamb? Difference maker in an NL only league?
(MP from KY)
I'm going to go well below "difference maker." Certainly rosterable though (who isn't, to be fair). (Craig Goldstein)
