BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-10 12:00:00 (link to chat)How come Steven Souza doesn't get more love from the prospect crowd? Crushed AAA and AA past two years and was recently named International League MVP.
(Jeffrey from IL)
This is a great point. Souza struggled at times, and I have heard reports that the Nats essentially sat him down and told him to push the "reset" button. It worked obviously. The tools have always been there, and I won't even lie, I like him more than prospects such as Brian Goodwin. I think Souza is a major leaguer and will contribute down the road. (Tucker Blair)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)If Steven Souza were 23, how much higher would his prospect stock be? Top 50? Given lost dev time (bit.ly/1v4s07G), does it make sense to consider him as younger for projection purposes?
(ng from kona)
What are the rules in this alternate universe. Can I be 23 again, and have people respect me? This is very disconcerting. I don't think you consider him younger for projection purposes for a few reasons. He's more physically mature than his competition, and that's an advantage, playing time or now. I don't think you can just subtract years off a guy because he wasn't playing as much, because he's still experiencing a lot of things that make him the player he is today. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Steven Souza - Crowded OF in Wash, what's the potential if he finds a new team? Can he be 270/20/20 or too optimistic?
(jonah from downtown)
A bit too optimistic. He has a great story, I'm rooting for him but I wonder about the average. (Mauricio Rubio)
