BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)So how many prospects in the Braves system would be the top prospect in the Diamondbacks or Royals systems?
(Greg from ATL)
I think I can get to 12, past that it depends on how you feel about Austin Riley I guess. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone's high on the Braves system, but as a Braves fan, I'm confused. I don't see any pitchers with ace potential other than Newcomb, who can't throw strikes. I don't see any hitters who could hit 20+ homers. So what am I missing? Can a team win with a bunch of 10-15 homer guys in the lineup and a bunch of middle rotation guys in the rotation?
(Alex from Atlanta)
First of all, Dansby Swanson. Second of all, Austin Riley and Braxton Davidson absolutely could hit 20+ homers. Third of all, Dansby Swanson. Fourth of all, not a lot of ace guys, but a TON of middle of the rotation guys. Their depth is simply outstanding. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Austin Riley strikes out a ton and can't walk. Davidson isn't good. Even for young guys, their seasons look miserable. There is no power in the org.
(Alex from Atlanta)
Way too soon to make these kinds of statements. I just don't agree at all that there is no power in the organization. It's not its strength, but there's pop. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-03-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me your overall thoughts on the hitters in the Braves system? I obviously love the pitching, but I'm nervous about any future hitters besides Dansby and Albies.
(Alex from Georgia)
Really respect the guys running the show and the scouting department there in Atlanta. They understand that especially in the NL, pitching wins you games.

There's a reason they're targeting a 'college bat'--so they say--in this year's draft. It makes sense. The system is VERY pitching heavy, though I agree, Dansby is a damn stud.

There just isn't even a ton of guys to talk about here in terms of their hitters. Austin Riley had a great debut, but they strayed so far from where others had him (a pitcher), you have to say to yourself 'I want to see this in a full-season league, and over time.'

That said, I really trust their scouts. I trust the guys pulling the trigger, and it wouldn't shock me if we were all wrong about Riley and they were right. He's certainly hit and hit and hit to date.

That said, yes, they definitely need to add offense--and it wouldn't shock me to see them go as 'bat heavy' as they were 'pitching heavy' last year.

Can I get a Kolby Allard, though? Love that kid. Hope he stays healthy. (Adam McInturff)
2016-02-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)With our new prospects draft approaching, I need to make room for two MiLB spots. Which two get the axe? Adam Walker, Tyler Goeddel, Tyler White or Alex Blandino? If I had to guess, it'll be Benintendi and someone like Naylor or Austin Riley replacing them.
(Wally from LA)
Goeddel was taken in the Rule 5, so I'd probably hold him and see if he can stick. Blandino is the other keep here but I can't wait to see what Tyler White does this year. (Greg Wellemeyer)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us a couple prospects that you could see their stock blowing up this year? Robles and Espinoza aside
(Isaac from Akron)
Victor Robles blew up last year and he's my dude...Assuming you're looking for lower-level prospects with upside, not MLB-ready types, my favorites would have to be Francis Martes (Astros) and Brent Honeywell (Rays). Honeywell throws the screwball and so far nobody has been able to touch it. I also like Austin Riley (Braves). He's going to shoot up lists. If you're looking for the one big name prospect that I'm high on it's Nomar Mazara...I'm all in... (George Bissell)
