2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)Texas' Josh Morgan us intriguing. Do you see them continuing to develop him as a C-IF?
(Pietro Crespi from Macondo)
Morgan is intriguing, and they're doing the same thing with Isiah Kiner-Falefa, I believe. It seems like there's the potential to generate something useful out of a guy with those skills, but Austin Barnes is kinda the posterboy for that and so far we've seen him be used as a generic backup catcher...sooo...yeah (Craig Goldstein)
