BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)So the discussions of Mike Young moving to 3rd by the local media are just a smokescreen?
(Ben from Dallas)
No, they're just ill-considered, but if the Rangers choose to go that way, let's just say that I'm glad they're in my team's division. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these SS's do you think would have the most value in a trade around the league: Jhonny Peralta, JJ Hardy, or Mike Young?
(Lincoln from Dallas)
Peralta has a better deal and more upside. I think we know who Hardy and Young are. Young's in decline and while I think he has value, that contract's going to look bad in a year or so. Now, put him on the right team where he's the hard-charging veteran or shift him to second and I think it improves. He'd work well on the Cubs. (Will Carroll)
2008-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've lost furcal, and am considering giving Sabathia and Kelly Johnson for Ellsbury and Mike Young. Seems like a pretty fair deal to me, whachuthink?
(mase1361 from Boston)
Wait on that deal. Young just got hurt last night. Ellsbury also has dropped off considerably lately; I'd see if I could find a better deal. (Jeff Erickson)
2008-03-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you recommend at SS if you can't get one of the top tier guys?
(Marc from San Antonio)
If you miss out on Holy Trinity of Hanley, Reyes and Rollins don't fret too much. It's if you miss out on Jeter, Tulo, Guillen and Mike Young you may have an issue. I like Renteria but is he a good fit in Detroit and Tejada is a big enigma this year. I put Young in there because I personally feel he has a big bounce back season. He drove in 94 last year and had a major drop in power from 96'. (Mike Siano)
