DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Tucker Barnhart? How do you evaluate and predict a catchers defensive ability, game management, and all those other "intangibles" for a catcher. Maybe those skills don't directly relate to fantasy, but I think they indirectly affect your pitchers (especially the young ones---see Yadier Molina). I guess what I am asking is who is the next (either in the 2014 draft or in MiLB) Ron Karkovice, Gary Carter, Jim Sundberg, Roy Campanella and in my humble opinion, Yadier Molina?
(Eli from Boston)
This is probably a better question for Parks and the MiLB crew here. I'm not super familiar with Barnhart, as he's not a fantasy asset. I can tell you that the best defensive catching prospect right now is Austin Hedges, and Mr. Hedges is not a Top 100 fantasy name. (Ben Carsley)
2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Taylor Teagarden ran over Ron Washington's dog, right? We have proof of this don't we?
(Hawkeye from Grafton, ND)
Teagarden is awful, just hideous, with a bat in his hands. I think he might eventually be Ron Karkovice. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)So wait, a strong walk rate and power, poor contact rate, gold glove caliber defense is NOT a valuable catching prospect?
(Aaron from YYZ)
Most of that power was in the Cal League. We're talking about a guy who's more likely to wind up being Tom Prince than Ron Karkovice. (Christina Kahrl)
