BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Brad Emaus possesses a keen batting eye, gap power, and the ability to play second or third base. There are worse places to be a Quad-A infielder than the Rockies organization.
2011 Emaus has been cut from big-league spring training on his birthday for two consecutive years, and will hope to avoid extending his streak this season by legally changing his date of birth. Should he be thwarted in that pursuit, a move to the Mets as a Rule 5 pick may prove as beneficial. Emaus has terrific plate discipline and enough pop to suggest that some could last in the majors. He has bounced between second and third and could play either passably. A perfect-world scenario is that he’ll develop into a gap hitter in the mold of Mark Loretta; the Mets will try him on another gap, their gap at second base, and failing that, a utility role.
2010 With Campbell at the hot corner, Emaus would be in line to take over second base should the Jays decide to cash in Aaron Hill as part of their rebuilding, or he would have been had he done anything to embolden the Jays in 2009. Struggling after making the leap to Double-A last year, Emaus let his frustration show in his play, which is problematic for a player whose hard-nosed style is a large part of his appeal. Emaus is a solid but unspectacular defender with a bit of speed and an excellent approach at the plate, but he’ll need to recoup the power and intensity he lost in 2009 and survive Triple-A before he becomes a viable candidate for the big club.
2009 Tulane product "Might" Emaus shifted back to second base from the hot corner for his first full-length professional season, and made like Campbell in terms of his suite of offensive skills, only with significantly more power. Emaus has a quick, short stroke that makes his power come easily and naturally; in Hawaiian Winter Baseball, he hit .333 and drew 17 walks against just seven strikeouts. Another advantage he has over Campbell is that he’s a solid defender at the keystone, and could well be Toronto’s next second baseman, although much depends on Hill's health, since the big-league starter's under contract through at least 2011.

2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Backups don't seem to get any love. Who are the best OF and IF backups in MLB? I'm like TEX's David Murphy for the OF, and NYY's E. Nunez for the IF. Thanks.
(Kristen W. from Canada)
I keep waiting for the Reds to give Chris Heisey the everyday LF job and just leave him alone. He's a mini Mike Morse type in my mind; I hope he gets 500 AB's this year although we'll see what effect the signing of Ryan Ludwick has on his PT. As for infielders, I like Nunez (see comments earlier in this chat), but many IF's are glove-first guys so it's harder to get excited about the backups. Heck, I was into Brad Emaus and Josh Rodriguez last year, and that didn't turn out very well! (Cory Schwartz)
2011-03-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who will be playing 2B for the Mets this year?
(bfitzge3 from Upstate NY)
Head says Daniel Murphy, since they've seen him before and at least know his bat, although his glove may be suspect. Gut says Brad Emaus, because they have to keep him on the roster as a Rule 5 pick, he'll be superior defensively, and shouldn't be too much less than Murphy with the bat. (Cory Schwartz)
