BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Chris McGuiness sounds like a McDonald's meal and he's equally as readily available and unsatisfying.
2014 Selected in the Rule 5 draft by Cleveland, but then sent back to Texas, Chris McGuiness was overmatched when pressed into a major-league fill-in role.
2011 Part of the return from the Red Sox for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Christopher McGuiness started to look like a legit prospect in 2010, showing a solid approach at the plate and some developing power potential to go along with a good glove at first.

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any predictions as to players that Houston, Cubs, Twins and other bottom feeders might take a flyer on in the Rule V draft? From what I've seen, it doesn't look like a very appetizing bunch to choose from, but have I missed anything?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Seems like Josh Fields and Marc Krauss could be off the board early. I've read Randy Henry, Chris McGuiness...but temper your expectations, since there aren't impact players that often. It won't happen, but how fun would it be if some team selected Pat Venditte, the Yankees' ambidextrous reliever? So fun. That's how fun it would be. I believe he's eligible for the first time.
