DateQuestionAnswer
2017-09-18 23:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Wilson who are five of your favorite prospects that you personally just like?
(Adniel from nyc)
Edwin Rios, Tony Kemp, Garrett Hampson, Rogelio Armenteros, Jose Trevino. How's THAT for a collection? (Wilson Karaman)
2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)If Aaron Judge running as fast as he could ran into Tony Kemp, how far would Kemp fly?
(Vince from Saratoga)
I believe if that were to happen we'd have a superhero the likes of which we've never seen. Or villain if you hate the Astros and Yankees, which I know many of you do. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Tony Kemp can be an MLB regular?
(Grizz from Chi)
Yeah, but I wouldn't necessarily count on it. He's a really smart hitter with plus speed, but there's no power, and the defensive profile is fringe-average because of so-so hands and a below average throwing arm. I like him more as a speed weapon off the bench, but weirder things have happened. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Tony Kemp for real? He seems to play a mean defense and his bat has been on fire all year. What can we expect from him in the majors and when do you think he'll get the call? Thanks!
(Mark from Houston)
I think this is a reasonable take http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=90 ... role guy, good, but not an everyday player. (Harry Pavlidis)
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)
