BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could Chris Marrero provide value to a team at 1B? Or is he done?
(Wesley from Utah)
I don't think he's much more than a bench option. (Mark Anderson)
2011-04-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chris Marrero's off to a hot start, and it's kinda hard for me to believe he's only 22. He was the top prospect for the Nats like 4 years ago. What should we make of his early AAA success?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
He could totally turn into a second-division starter type. (Kevin Goldstein)
