BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-08-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)IIRC both Arenado and DJ LeMahieu were considered poor defensive players as prospects. How much of their improvement is their own (ie make up) and how much credit does Colorado's coaching/PD staff deserve?
(JG from Sacramento)
A great question. I think you have to give the Rockies a little credit -- particularly with Arenado -- but ultimately it comes down to the players doing the work. The improvement Arenado has made is just...it's borderline unreal. He's sensational. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)I am so up in the air about 2B and SS where to look for the future in Dynasty league. Can you rate the following. DJ LeMahieu, Marwin Gonzalez, Brian Dozier Jordy Mercer,. Thank you for the time you put into this. As of now I have Doizer at 2nd and Mercer at SS with Jose Reyes.
(OB1 from NYC)
Woof.

Dozier, Marwin, DJ, Jordy. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Any of these hitters worth a flyer in an NL only standard 4x4 league? DJ LeMahieu, Adeiny Hechavarria, or Jordany Valdespin.
(Johnny T from The Hills)
All three are worth fliers, we're talking NL-only. Valdespin probably has the highest ceiling if he can get playing time because of the HR/SB combo. Hechavarria should play, but yawn on the stats. (Mike Gianella)
