BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Dean Anna? Is there any upside there?
(Royal Farm from Dc)
I still refuse to believe that this is a real person. (Bret Sayre)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yankees traded for Dean Anna from the Padres -- he hit 331 in AAA last year and plays 2nd/SS. Does he make a significant impact with the Yanks this year?
(Dan from NYC)
I wouldn't say significant, though PECOTA (.265 TAv) likes him more than scouts do. Ben Lindbergh covered him last September as part of the all-fringe-prospect team. (R.J. Anderson)
