DateQuestionAnswer
2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)Give us a hot start you believe in (not Harper, dope) and one you think is a mirage
(Gotribe31 from DC)
Does Mitch Haniger count? I was never the highest on him before the swing changes, but I think Nick Piecoro did a great job of detailing those and others in our DBacks essay for the Annual this year, and I think we're seeing them come to fruition (granted, in Seattle). He's not gonna hit .340 or anything, but the power/speed combination is fun there. Mirage I'll go with Avisail Garcia because I've watched him play baseball before. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you feel about Mitch Haniger setting the world on fire this year?
(sailenac from SD)
Love it. Hope it keeps up. Jerry Dipoto is my spirit animal. Love the Mariners, looking forward to watching them play. The whole hitting revolution continues to fascinate me. I particularly love the way it tends to be late bloomers or guys in dire straits who find their way to it. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)Has Mitch Haniger officially gone from sleeper to overhyped?
(Jeff from Brubank)
I long to live in a universe where Haniger is overhyped. He's probably just a lefty-masher, but there's a small chance he's more. If he's being valued as more than that, say no thank you and move on. (Bret Sayre)
2016-07-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Mitch Haniger -- I realize he must be considered over-the-hill at 25 but it seems like he is really showing something the past year since being healthy. I thought his defense has always been considered strong and goodness knows this could be helpful to the Dbacks OF. Any chance they give him a real shot, even this year?
(tj from dc)
I mean the DBacks aren't exactly going anywhere in a hurry, so there's always a chance he gets a look. He'd need to get added to the 40-man roster, though, and the PCL has a habit of making people look like Stan Musial. (Nicolas Stellini)
