BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Settle a dispute. I say that Josh Anderson is a 4th outfielder at best. A buddy swears he should be playing every day. Who is right?
(achaik from maine)
His glove is so good that he could start in center field for me. Or the Braves, for that matter. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Matt Diaz being effective if given regular at-bats against LHPs and RHPs, or is all his value connected to only starting against southpaws? A connected question - who do you see receiving more major league at-bats this season, Brandon Jones or Josh Anderson?
(abernethyj from Chapel Hill, NC)
If the Braves want to win ballgames, Brandon Jones, with Diaz remaining in the role he's best suited for, picking the rookie up against the league's tougher southpaws. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a Braves fan. Could you please explain why you think Mark Kotsay, at $2Million a year, and some possible talent from the minors, is better than about a hundred different guys you could find in the minors for nothing? Kotsay's a lousy ballplayer, and your organization, in particular, shouldn't be shy about pointing that out.
(rrentaurn from Boise)
I don't think I was, but I try to also see things as Frank Wren does in terms of understanding the possible upside. And like you, I don't believe it. Not that I had any faith in Josh Anderson, but Gregor Blanco has some value. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you like in CF for the Braves to start the season? IF they decide to go with in house options how much are they putting thier playoff hopes in jeopardy?
(basicslop from Albuquerque)
There's no good out-of-house options left, although I suppose they're one team that could wait a month for Mike Cameron to return. Gregor Blanco is a pumped-up fourth outfielder who wouldn't totally kill them.
Josh Anderson is the wrong answer, I know that much. (Joe Sheehan)
