DateQuestionAnswer
2018-12-10 16:00:00 (link to chat)What catchers are you targeting this season?
(Gary Mack from behind the plate)
I like Posey's price point where he has been going so far, although it's still early. Danny Jansen is exciting. I have a soft spot for Willians Astudillo, of course, so I hope the Twins let him play all year. (Darius Austin)
2018-12-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Danny Jansen: 80 OFP or the first ever 90?
(Chris B from Canada)
If only we gave a three grade bump for great glasses. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Danny Jansen should be getting more hype, right? 23 year old C who has mashed for 1.5 years now since getting eyewear to fix his vision. Should he be called up soon?
(brendonkuhn from Vancouver)
Catchers are weird. But yes. They are amazing specs too. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)I know the Morales vs Vlad debate is very in right now, but how about Danny Jansen vs Russell Martin? Do you think there's any way the Jays start playing Jansen close to everyday before the end of Russ's deal?
(Jack from Los Angeles)
Yep. I think they're going to have to, because I'm skeptical Martin remains on the team if he's not willing to take a hit to his playing time heading into next year. There's no reason to make this a Yadi/Carson Kelly sitch (especially since Yadi can still hit) (Craig Goldstein)
2018-04-05 20:00:00 (link to chat)Danny Jansen or Jake Rogers as AL catching prospects - either worth drafting?
(fearlessraccoon from Chicago)
I like Jansen. Still think there's an outside chance he's starting for the Jays by September. (Mike Gianella)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Which under-the-radar Blue Jays prospect do you think will have a coming out party in 2015? Rowdy Tellez, Angel Perdomo, Dan Jansen, or Lane Thomas?
(Jay from Toronto)
Oh, one of my secret crushes, Angel Perdomo. I fully expect to see people talking about him extensively by this time next year. (Mark Anderson)
