DateQuestionAnswer
2013-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Robbie Grossman holds down a starting spot as part of the Astros future? I hated to lose him, although it was worth it to get Wandy. He doesn't do anything great except draw walks, but there may be room for growth.
(James from Morgantown)
Guys who have no power but do walk a lot really fascinate me. The Angels have a more extreme case in J.B. Shuck who became somewhat of a curiosity to me when he was coming up through the minors. If we think of it as a straight theoretical game theory problem where pitchers pick spots to throw to and hitters swing or don't swing, there's no reason ever to walk Shuck (or Grossman). They're not going to make you pay with home runs. Yet pitchers are imprecise enough and they're discerning enough that they make it work.

And no, I don't see much of a future for Grossman. (Zachary Levine)
