BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is a player you thought would be a no doubt star and flopped? And on the other side, who was a guy you thought wouldn't amount to anything and became a star?
(Robert from California)
I thought Kevin McReynolds would be a big star. Maybe I was focusing too much on tools. With the benefit of hindsight, I believe that this athlete’s cool demeanor reflected a lack of drive. Later I thought that Grady Sizemore would be a perennial All-Star, even though he struck out too much. I didn’t realize how physically brittle he would be. (I’d love to see Grady make a comeback, even for a season or two.)
I didn’t think that Ryne Sandberg would be a Hall of Famer—or anything close to it. I saw him when the Phillies still imagined him as a shortstop, and I remember writing in my notebook that he only had “warning track power.” But Dallas Green knew what the kid could do, and one of his first moves when he went to Chicago was to trade Ivan DeJesus to the Phils for Larry Bowa and Sandberg. What a steal! And what a great fit for Sandberg as a second baseman hitting in Wrigley Field. (Kevin Kerrane)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat) Will Ivan Dejesus jr. be a useful player for the Dodgers while Furcal is out?
(tcogle from vegas)
Useful for the Dodgers in that he might post a positive Value Over Replacement Futilityman. Useful for your fantasy team? No. (Ben Lindbergh)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)What should I expect from Jason Bartlett this year? Any comparisons?
(MattBishoff from DRaysBay)
I guess I sort of think of him as Greg Gagne with a little less power and a little more speed, but PECOTA names Ivan DeJesus (the original), Mike Bordick, and Alan Bannister as his top comparables in this year's book.

Basically, if you're watching Rays games, you'll get to see the best defensive shortstop in franchise history. (Christina Kahrl)

2009-10-16 13:00:00NLCS Game Two/ALCS Game OneUnless you believe in Blake DeWitt there (and I don't), the answer is no. Maybe Ivan DeJesus can bounce back after a lost '09, maybe Hu will get another look -- there's some options, but none of them inspire much confidence at this juncture. (Kevin Goldstein)
