BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2019-08-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Does Colton Welker need a trade to have a successful big league career? or does he find a way to mash for the Rockies?
(lbement from MA)
I still haven't figured out what auguries to use to figure out Rockies prospect playing time. But yeah, he's probably blocked by Pat Valaika or something. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why isn't Josh Fuentes getting any prospect love? He was the PCL MVP and has done nothing but rake since signing as an UDFA. Do you think the Rockies add him to the 40 man this winter, and does he have a shot to make the team as a bench bat?
(terryallan from CO)
He's one of those dudes I hem and haw about role 3 or 4. He grew on me some at Hartford last year, but he's overaged, doesn't walk, doesn't have ideal corner power, is about to be 26 and has played in launching pads. So those are probably the reasons. This is the Rockies though and I like him more than Pat Valaika. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
