BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think trayvon Robinson or Thomas Neal are likely (or capable of) to be full time big league outfielders next year?
(mrenick from Little Rock)
Far more Robinson than Neal. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see trayvon Robinson and Thomas Neal as being solid regulars in 2012
(mrenick from Arkansas)
Robinson yes, Neal no. I think Neal takes a little longer to become a solid regular (Jason Parks)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Kevin, with Posey/Bumgarner now in the bigs, is it fair to say the Giants farm (what remains) is pretty easily bottom 10, even bottom 5? I see Zach Wheeler, Thomas Neal (who's looked better in AA 2nd half of the season, but not dominating by any means), Pegeuro, and a whole bunch of guys stalled out at AA.
(Ace from San Francisco)
Things have gotten ugly, and quickly, haven't they. (Kevin Goldstein)
