BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-06-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite buy/sell targets right now? Maybe 1 hitter and 1 pitcher to each buy/sell on?
(Shawn from Cubicle)
Ian Desmond is my favorite "buy" target for hitters. Carlos Carrasco for pitchers. In terms of selling, I'd be cashing out on someone like Dustin Pedroia and Ubaldo Jimenez. I'd also sell hard on Nick Martinez, but I'm not sure you'll get much value for him. (J.P. Breen)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Who are the sleeper pitchers this year, Greene, Nick Martinez,, ?????????
(Craiguest from LA)
Still Nate Eovaldi, T.J. House for me. (Mike Gianella)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Nick Martinez set to make his debut in Texas later this week, will you provide a scouting report on him? He seems to have been flying under the radar a bit compared to some of the other Ranger pitching prospects.
(Chad from OKC)
I've seen him a bunch since he signed, but I don't think he belongs in the discussion with other Rangers pitching prospects. He has pitchability and is a plus athlete, but I have him graded as a middle-reliever, with a good low-90s FB and a playable SL that he can manipulate. I don't think he's going to miss enough barrels or bats at the major league level, but I don't think he will run away from the challenge. He's a smart kid with balls. He should be around the game for a while. (Jason Parks)
