DateQuestionAnswer
2010-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Juan Francisco is tearing up the AFL so far. I'm genuinely torn on this guy, he's got amazing power but horrific plate discipline. Is he Wily Mo Pena v2.0?
(Johnny from NYC)
Actually, he's tearing up the Dominican League with the Gigantes del Cibao. If he doesn't change his swing at everything approach, I don't think he'll ever be more than a up and down guy. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Any chance the Reds' AAA affiliate could beat the Pirates in a 7 game series? They're trotting out a lineup of Dave Sappelt, Chris Valaika, Yonder Alonso, Todd Frazier, Juan Francisco, Danny Dorn, and Devin Mesoraco, with Sam LeCure, Matt Maloney, Aaron Harang, and Aroldis Chapman among their pitchers.
(Joe from Cincy)
I was going to rip you and talk about how massive the different is between Triple-A and the big leagues is, but they might have a chance. I'll still favor the Pirates though. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)Has Juan Francisco raised his stock this year with his strong finish?
(WayneTheMan2421 from Indiana)
I'm not sure his stock is way up -- Still a lot of questions about his plate discipline and where he ends up defensively. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Reds prospect Juan Francisco pretty much obliterated Dominican Winter League pitching. Did he get that much better? Or was the pitching just that bad?
(Scott from Detroit)
I'm not saying he didn't take a big step forward, but offense was WAY WAY up this year in the Winter Leagues. (Kevin Goldstein)
