2018-08-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)What's the difference in Nick Madrigal and Nicky Lopez the profiles seem similar yet all the love for madrigal and you rarely hear about Lopez?
(bphil2712 from The Ozarks )
Madrigal's hit tool is more than a grade better than Lopez's and Madrigal has more speed. Not to mention the lack of strikeouts (4 in 146 PA). And I think we've all come to agree that short guys with elite bat control are worth more than we think, which is why Madrigal gets the hype. I agree that no one talks about Lopez. He can take a walk, something Madrigal is still learning to do, but otherwise is a little uninspiring. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Nicky Lopez can be an average regular for the Royals, and if so, how soon?
(dave from bama)
We had a spirited discussion on Lopez last offseason in the context of the Royals list and he definitely had his backers. With the way he's hit at Double-A he may just be awaiting a Whit Merrifield deal. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
