BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)So Corey Brown's been incredible in AAA, unfortunately he's 26. Is this a sign that he could potentially be effective in the majors, or just is he old enough to hang in AAA without anyone thinking it means anything?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
I think he deserves a shot. I'd like to see him get it. Low average guy, but a lot of secondary skills to make up for it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-08-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Corey Brown, flop?
(Dave from Chicago)
I'm aware that his overall numbers since the promotion have a lot of red flags, but he also has 10 home runs in 121 at-bats. Flop? really? (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)How has Corey Brown's stock changed this season? He seems to be showing good tools but is pretty darn old for his league yet still Ks a ton. Should the A's be more aggressive in promoting him?
(Norville Barnes from Muncie, IN)
You'll see him in Stockton pretty soon -- as in this week. I think he's stock is pretty much unchanged from where it was going into the year -- and that's pretty good. (Kevin Goldstein)
