BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Are you bullish any of these young platoon outfielders become complete players in the next 2 years? Aaron Hicks, Trayce Thompson, Anthony Gose, Adam Duvall, Avisail Garcia, Tyler Naquin?
(Yes Cheese from Yep)
Absolutely no, never, not gonna happen on Avisail Garcia. I don't think he turns into anything. I'd be surprised if Trayce Thompson turns into a decent everyday player at the MLB level, too. I think Gose is a platoon player, although he's on the good side of the platoon and plays excellent defense, so he could get a little more playing time by virtue of his defense. I don't think Adam Duval will ever be a legit starter on a decent team. Naquin could get more run than most players with his offensive profile due to his glove and the lack of options in CF in Cleveland for the time being. I like Hicks, though. I'm not sure Hicks will ever be a complete player, but he's the best bet of this group. The twins really jerked him around, though, and it hurt his development, maybe irreparably. His glove and arm will give him a lot more chances to figure it out than most outfielders, though. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)The following names aren't necessarily exciting....but in what order would you rank Trayce Thompson, Travis Shaw, Patrick Kivlehan and Tyler Goeddel for a dynasty league? Would there be a standout if just looking for potential current year impact? Cheers
(markdavo4 from Australia)
In dynasty, Shaw, Kivlehan, Goeddel, and Thompson. For 2016 only Goeddel has an opportunity now that Aaron Altherr is out for most if not all of the season and could be the guy to take a big leap forward. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-14 14:30:00 (link to chat)Any prospects you like more than the other guys?
(George G. from Allentown)
I think Tyler White hits enough to at least play against lefties. Artie Reyes flashed three solid average pitches and a dandy of a curve for me in Tacoma last year. I'd bet on Trayce Thompson's athleticism, although I'm not sure he gets on the field much in LA. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Re: Cameron: What makes him different than the Keenyn Walker/Trayce Thompson/Adam Engels of the past?
(Pelecos from Chicago)
I like Cameron more than this crop of players for a variety of reasons. I think he'll be more dedicated than Walker and I like his baseball skills better than Thompson. A wise man who has been deceased for quite some time thinks Daz to the Sox is a good fit but this is a guy who also liked Trayce Thompson.

Alright with that I'm out, sorry for those of you who snuck some questions in while I was answering this. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Let's say Chicago or Detroit called saying they want my players and are willing to offer prospects. Who should I ask for? Both farm systems I think stink.
(Kevin from Houston )
Considering you can't yet ask for this year's draft picks, the pickings are going to be pretty slim. From Detroit, the obvious answer is Nick Castellanos, but you could also be intrigued by players like Endrys Briceno, Drew VerHagen, Brian McCann, and Steven Moya. From the White Sox you can look at Courtney Hawkins, despite what Mortimer says, and I still believe in Trayce Thompson a little bit. (Mark Anderson)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chances these outfielders will have starting jobs by the middle of May: Oswaldo Arcia ____ Jackie Bradley ____ Shane Peterson ____ Trayce Thompson ____
(Hoot Stromboli from Snowed In)
Hoot, I can't place percentages on each. I think Thompson is the most likely because the White Sox always seem aggressive with their prospects. I would put Peterson next—if only because I think an injury to Beltran could happen and it's too early for OSCAR—then Bradley and finally Arcia. (R.J. Anderson)
