BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)He's no longer a prospect, but based in part on his really pretty decent minor league performance, what do you think of Greg Smith's future?
(Mario66 from Toronto)
I'm frankly pretty shocked by it, and don't think it will last. Will he setting in as a solid back-end starter? Sure, but low-to-mid three ERAs every year -- I don't see it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Greg Smith: you had him as the A's 13th best prospect this spring. Is he capable of sustaining this solid performance in teh majors long term?
(AKL from Oakland)
Honestly, I'm not sure. I had this discussion a couple of weeks ago with a scout, and he didn't get it, and neither did I. So I guess I'm saying that as an A's fan you should enjoy it while it lasts, but at the same time I've been wrong plenty of times -- but on a scouting level -- it doesn't match the numbers. (Kevin Goldstein)
