BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these "fringe" prospects can you see playing beyond this label and their division 2 projections and being above average regulars some day? Mac Williamson, Preston Tucker, Darnell Sweeney, Tony Kemp, Devon Travis?
(GI JIM from Uranus)
Do you remember the seen in 30 rock when Kenneth is Tracey's work wife and he gives him the plan for the day and then Tracey says "I'M NOT DOING ANY OF THAT!" ?

That's how I feel about the names you just mentioned. Sweeney and Kemp the best of the bunch though. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Hanley now going to Boston does that open up a spot for either Alex Guerrero or Darnell Sweeney to move into second base with Dee moving to short?
(Hank Scorpio from Springfield)
The Dodgers could go a lot of different ways, including a short-term bridge to Seager with Gordon staying put. In any event, Guerrero and Sweeney could both impact the Dodgers in a reserve capacity, and each has a chance to be an adequate contributor at the keystone if that's the direction LA elects to pursue. (NL Central Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
