BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Chris Colabello for real ROS, or is it all going to come crashing down soon?
(Frank from Frank's House)
He's getting insane RBI opps with Dozier, Mauer, and Plouffe getting on base a TON in front of him. I'd sell high. He's not worthless, but nowhere near this good, IMO (Paul Sporer)
2013-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think there's such a thing as a AAAA player? Are there guys who destroy AAA but just can't play in MLB? Not directly related, but sort related, can Chris Colabello be a Morneau replacement in MIN? Does his 2013 MIN say anything about 2014?
(Cris E from St Paul, MN)
I absolutely believe in AAAA players. The major league level is the highest level for a reason, and the talent gulf between AAA and the majors can be extreme. There are countless players that have the skills to play in the upper minors but lack the high-end skill or adjustment ability to find sustainable success in the majors. (Jason Parks)
2013-07-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Callups today: Chris Colabello and Junior Lake. Fliers or bench fodder?
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
Really depends on league, but needs to be pretty deep for either. (Paul Sporer)
