BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the very deapest of dynasty leagues, would you consider Kevin Kiermaier, Jesus Montero, Brock Holt, Brandon Barnes, Bobby Abreu, Eugenio Suarez, Rene Rivera, Steve Pearce, and Juan Lagares. In what order would you rank them of those you would consider?
(Donald from Orlando)
I'd look at Kiermaier, and Holt most among that group. Kiermaier has some nice PT with Myers down and Holt seems to be ready to play anywhere to stay in the lineup. There isn't a lot of disparity in the group, but for this year only, I'd still give Abreu a look, too. Beyond that, Suarez and Montero would be my next two. (Paul Sporer)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)The LaRoche brothers; which one will prove to be the better? And should the Bucs keep both, neither, or just the good one?
(Neal from Pitt, PA)
I think Andy, but I don't mean to slight Adam in saying so. I think it's fine to keep both, because it doesn't look like Steven Pearce is necessarily the (alternative) answer at first base. OTOH, once somebody loses on the Teixeira sweepstakes this winter, it will make good sense to shop LaRoche around, because anybody who might want Nick Johnson might instead prefer to have someone more likely to play 150 games. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)what player do you think will turn into the carlos quinten of 2009? a player stuck between AAA and the majors and never gets a chance to prove himself but when he finally does he goes off
(krgrecw from cola sc)
I think it's a bit of a misconception that Quentin was never given an opportunity in Phoenix--he did, and he blew it. The Snakes then made the overlapping decisions to bring up Justin Upton and (unfortunately) to commit to Eric Byrnes on a multi-year deal. The former made sense, and the latter was something a few of us here panned pretty vociferously at the time. The upshot was that Quentin became available, and while dealing from a surplus is fine in principle, the Snakes didn't have a surplus, they had an affectation for Eric Byrnes. That's a gift that's going to keep on giving.

As a result, I don't have an answer per se, in that Quentin's situation was unfortunate, but then his explosion, to this extent, was also very much unanticipated, both inside and outside the game. A year ago, some people might have said Steven Pearce was that guy; it's fun to say that Dallas McPherson could be, but he's not that good either. If you're looking for guys who had bumpy rookie years who should blossom as sophomores, I'd suggest Carlos Gonzalez in Oakland, or Jeff Clement in Seattle. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the LaRoche brothers manning the corner IF spots and Steven Pearce likely plugged into one of the OF corners spots in Pittsburgh, what do the Pirates do now with Pedro Alvarez and Neil Walker?
(JoshC77 from Columbus, OH)
With the caveat that I'm not Kevin Goldstein, I'll take a swing at this. I don't think you worry about Walker or Alvarez until they're pressing for a spot on the big league roster. Walker is hitting just .232/.266/.421 in Triple-A, Alvarez has yet to sign and begin his pro career. They're both a ways off, and you can always trade from strength to fill other organizational needs if there's a logjam. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-01-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)kala kaaihue in double-a: did he experience normal growing pains at a new level, or was he simply exposed?
(bubba from maine)
I think he was exposed. I think the swing is long and problematic, and those strikeout numbers are very damning. More Brad Eldred than Steven Pearce here, I'm afraid. (Bryan Smith)
