BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is weiters A)close to breaking out B)going to breakout C) no where near D) He is who he is?
(TOny from Albuquerque)
I could tell you what PECOTA says... but I probably shouldn't. I think he will be better this year than he has shown. There are some good things in his record, like selectivity and the occasional hot streak where he looks like exactly who we all thought he was. Not much of a switch-hitter, apparently, he would look superficially better if he sat against more left-handers... One thing I look forward to is if the change in hitting coaches to Jim Presley will make a big difference. As a lineup, the Orioles were all out for themselves last year. (Steven Goldman)
2009-04-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should I trade high on Chipper (last season, not last night) and go w/ Kouzmanoff at 3B assumming I get a big bat in return? Thanks!
(Tony from Brooklyn, NY)
I'm really not a fan of Kouzmanoff, who looks to me like Jim Presley with a much worse offensive environment. Jones is a four-category stud (assuming 5x5). (Joe Sheehan)
