BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)More efficient infield at converting ground balls into outs: 6 Adam Dunn's or 4 Andrelton Simmons'?
(BOB from Pittsburgh)
It's all about alignment. You could lay six Adam Dunns end to end and span the perimeter of the infield, corralling every ground ball. Meanwhile, Simmons would be out of position at first base. (Matt Sussman)
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)If it was the 18th inning and you needed to use a position player to pitch, would you use the guy who would throw the best (like Andrelton Simmons, if you were the Braves) or the guy you cared least about (like Ramiro Pena, if you were the Braves)?
(Jackson from Stockton)
If it's the 18th inning, everyone's tired and I just want to go home so if I'm the Braves I'm using Luis Avilan again. (Matt Sussman)
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)More lateral range: Adam Dunn standing up or Andrelton Simmons lying down? (Assume Simmons is allowed to get up once the ball's put into play.)
(justarobert from Santa Clara)
But Dunn can fall down faster than Simmons can get up, and Dunn covers more ground that way. (Matt Sussman)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Andrelton Simmons will eventually hit for average?
(Jason from Atlanta)
There's a chance, but I don't really like the approach. I wouldn't bet on it. Good thing he's a wizard with the glove, which more than makes up for it. (J.P. Breen)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What major league position player would you most like to see on the mound?
(Seth from Detroit)
Yadier Molina or Andrelton Simmons. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)How impressed are you daily by Andrelton Simmons and his defense?
(Tyler from ATL)
One of the top defensive talents in the game right now. (Jason Parks)
2013-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've got five shortstops born over the course of six months, September 1989-March 1990. Take contract status out, but considering all else, how do you rank them for the short and the long term? Andrelton Simmons, Ruben Tejada, Didi Gregorius, Jean Segura, Starlin Castro.
(Matt Trueblood from Fridley, MN)
Short: Castro, Segura, Gregorius, Simmons, Tejada
Long: Castro, Segura, Simmons, Gregorius, Tejada (Sam Miller)
2013-04-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)I was offered Prince Fielder and Andrelton Simmons for Matt Kemp. Should I accept?
(Antonio from Teaneck, NJ)
Most people in this world are trying to take advantage of you. Never give an inch. (Sam Miller)
2013-03-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Andrelton Simmons or Jean Segura having a potential top 10 SS season?
(Thad from Peoria)
Segura, maybe. Simmons, no. (Bret Sayre)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Nobody is higher on Andrelton Simmons than the D-backs. He certainly offers a great deal of defensive skills to any major league team. My question, does he offer something to get excited about for fantasy owners? What can he do at the plate and on the base paths? Thanks, Mark.
(Brian from Atlanta)
He's a tough guy for fantasy owners, Brian. His defense could make him a big name in the game, but his fantasy value likely won't match that real-life status. I think he can provide a fantasy team with everyday at-bats at a premium position, some batting average and 15+ steals. (Mark Anderson)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)A good historical comp for Andrelton Simmons would be ... ?
(Paul from DC)
Dave Concepcion? I don't buy Simmons' bat to the level some do. But he's a really good defender. (Jason A. Churchill)
2012-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have most of my FAAB budgeted in my keeper league for late-season prospect call ups. Guys like Hultzen, Bauer, Skaggs, and Arenado are all taken already. Who's a good bet to be called up that's not on everyone's radar (that's worth a sizable bid)?
(Don H. from Oak Park)
I'm assuming you can't bid on guys in-season until they're recalled? Anthony Rizzo, Jed Gyorko, Julio Teheran are pretty good bets for call-ups this year. Maybe Andrelton Simmons if Pastornicky fails. Leonys Martin could be up at some point late, especially if we see some Texas injuries (Hamilton and Cruz are bound to go down at some point). Wil Myers could get a September call-up. Matt Harvey could too. (Derek Carty)
2012-03-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)How bad a hitter will Andrelton Simmons be if given the SS job this year?
(AaronSF from LA)
Pretty damn bad. But the defense will be pretty damn good. It will be a tough decision. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-03-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)If Andrelton Simmons gets the starting SS nod for the Braves, is .240BA, 10hrs, 15 steals out of the question? He's won a (low) minor league batting title. And would Pastornicky offer any more, really?
(timothy from nashville, tn)
Well, he had ONE home run in 500+ Carolina League at-bats last year, so I have no idea where the ten would suddenly come from. He could steal the 15 bases though. I think Pastornicky is more ready, but neither will be offensive studs or anything. (Kevin Goldstein)
