BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Who is a not so well known prospect who is turning peoples heads?
(scott from az)
I guess Iím unsure as to the exact method he used but perhaps Angel Villalona? (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Angel Villalona, what have you heard? Does he still have an MLB future? Ceiling/floor?
(Aaron from Long Beach)
I wasn't terribly impressed when I saw him in the Eastern League last year, and I'm anxious to see him again in 2014. The power is obvious and he does surprisingly well around the bag at first base, but I just don't see the approach working to the point that he can hit consistently. He's an interesting case, and not one that is easily scouted because of the time missed. It's easy to get caught up on where he should be on the developmental curve because of his age, but you have to account for extenuating circumstances as well. (Mark Anderson)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Any hope for Angel Villalona? (Baseball wise, not personal shortcomings)
(John from Idaho)
Maybe, but he has to avoid shooting people. (Jason Parks)
2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any chance Angel Villalona plays baseball again in the U.S.? Even if the charges are 'dropped', would any team touch that PR nightmare? Was he showing any progress this year according to scouts?
(BrowningNagle from Louisville, KY)
He has some very good scouting reports out of the Cal League, but yes, his future is very much up in the air. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-09-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)I know you aren't Kevin, but Wow! How about that Angel Villalona news?
(jtrichey from Indianapolis)
That was a real shocker. I don't think his prospect status can withstand 20 years in the joint. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Divisive prospect lightning round! Angel Villalona, stock up or down?
(Rob from Alaska)
Down. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Kevin, What are your thoughts on Angel Villalona? He has had an unspectacular year at Low A but is still showing great power for his age level. Do you see him becoming a middle of the lineup hitter along the lines of Andre Gallarga?
(LA Goofy from Disneyworld)
I talk to a scout about Villalona in tommorow's edition of Future Shock. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Angel Villalona has turned it on a bit lately, hitting 4 homers in the last week or so with a 4-hit and 3-hit game mixed in. If he were in high school like most kids his age, would he be a mega-hyped clear #1 overall pick for the upcoming draft?
(mkvallely from Florissant)
He'd be top 10, but No. 1? I doubt it -- it's just so hard for a guy who's locked into first base to be seen as a No. 1 pick. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-04-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've read some discussions on various blogs that Angel Villalona might eventually become the best prospect in baseball. Would you agree? I think he has that kind of potential.
(Larry from Georgia)
Might eventually? Couldn't I saw that about 40-50 guys, maybe more? (Kevin Goldstein)
