BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some under the radar prospects for the Pirates who could shoot up the rankings in the next year or two?
(Jeb from Des Moines)
Luis Escobar is the guy generating a lot of questions this year, but reports I've heard have him as a likely reliever. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sixto Sanchez or Luis Escobar? 2 relievers?
(Rick from TN)
Sanchez. Not close. (George Bissell)
2017-05-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best under the radar prospects in the Pirates organization? (Luis Escobar, Taylor Hearn)?
(Bill Scott from Mayor)
OK, full disclosure: When I get prospects questions, I refer to the BP Annual. Luis Escobar isn't even in it. Hearn has only a Lineout. Can I answer Ke'Bryan Hayes, or is he not under the radar? Sorry, this is not my long suit. (Rob Mains)
2017-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Luis Escobar is intriguing. Lot of K's. Thoughts?
(Blackburn from Spoco)
Adam Hayes saw him last year. Don't know what if anything might have changed. He's on my follow list though.

2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)Is Luis Escobar a dude? He has all the k's
(flashtheleather from TN)
He's interesting, that's for sure. The strikeouts are encouraging, but even more encouraging is the curtailed walk rate. We have an eyewitness report on him from August of last year, and I haven't had the chance to see him since then, so I'm not sure what's changed. Going off that report, though, I'd hazard he's a reliever in the long run. (Craig Goldstein)
