DateQuestionAnswer
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Was the Hickory team for the Rangers the most star studded prospect team in recent memlryr
(Mark from Charlotte )
Give me the 2010 Cedar Rapids Kernels. Mike Trout, Pat Corbin, Tyler Skaggs, Johnny Hellweg, Garrett Richards, Ariel Pena, Fabio Martinez, Jean Segura, Randal Grichuk. Man, the Angles traded almost every single one of those guys away. And you wonder why their farm system is barren right now. (Jason Cole)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jed Bradley and Taylor Jungmann: what gives?
(Tyler from Indy)
The good news for Brewers fans: I'll see Tyler Thornburg and Johnny Hellweg this week. The bad news: I don't have a lot of positive on Bradley and Jungmann. I saw Bradley in camp; his stuff was actually slightly better than last season, but it's still very fringe. 88-91 with a little armside life/sink but was up in the zone. The slider has good shape but was soft. Just fringy all around.

I've seen Jungmann a ton, from his college days to a couple times as a pro. Stuff-wise, the biggest plus for Jungmann out of Texas was his fastball. He could sit comfortably at 92-94 with plus life, reaching 95-97 whenever he got into a jam. It looked like a future bat-destroying pitch. The breaking ball was always just okay, and his changeup came and went. Now Jungmann has been more 89-91 in pro ball, and he'll pop a 93 here and there. It looks like a potential back-end starter. He is a competitor who knows how to pitch, and that'll help him, but the stuff has taken a step back, and he hasn't rediscovered his college velocity. (Jason Cole)
2012-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat) John Hellweg got some sudden attention in the last half of last year when he switched to the rotation... how has his outlook developed this year?
(beezer from left lane)
He's gone backwards. Control/command still a huge issue. He's just so huge that the delivery is a problem. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ok, the Cubs have me baseball depressed. Again. If I were to pick a Kane County game to go to, which opponent should I try to see?
(Mike from Chicago)
Cedar Rapids. Beyond Trout, they have the best rotation in the league with Skaggs, Martinez and Richards all likely Top 11 prospects in the org and a nice sleeper in giant closer John Hellweg. And I mean GIANT, dude is like 6-9, 230. (Kevin Goldstein)
