DateQuestionAnswer
2019-02-06 21:00:00 (link to chat)Ian Anderson ranked higher on the "regular" prospect list than on the Dynasty list. Is that because his perceived ceiling isn't very high? Thanks!
(Hoss from The Plains)
I really, really like Anderson. I think it's just a function of us docking all pitchers somewhat given the attrition rate. He also probably won't have the elite strikeout rate we really crave from dynasty guys. But he's very good, and we're excited about him. - BC (Dynasty 101 Chat w/ Ben Carsley and Bret Sayre)
2018-12-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts about Jeff McNeil and Ian Anderson and their potential ceilings?
(bob m from philly)
Jeff McNeil is a 6. Ian Anderson could be a 7. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-09-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)How good can Ian Anderson be? Is he a potential #1 in your mind? Does Wil Smith have the stuff and the opportunity to be the Giants closer again next year? Thx
(bob from pa)
He could be. That's the ceiling. Smith has the stuff to close, sure. I don't see him as a top shelf guy, though, and the Giants might want to get their money's worth from Melancon. (Mike Gianella)
2018-08-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Touki the top arm in the Braves system?
(Lenny from March of dimes)
Hmm. I can't decide from him, Ian Anderson and maybe Bryse Wilson? OK, maybe not Wilson, I'm just really biased toward him. The first two have top of the rotation upside. Feels like every starter in that org is at worst a mid-rotation guy. Sheesh. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do prospects with boring names like Ian Anderson get overlooked? What do you expect of Ian Anderson?
(Jacob from DC)
I haven't been able to say Heliot Ramos without hearing the "Stelio Kantos" song from American Dad in my head for months. You might be onto something. I like Ian Anderson, but have him a bit behind the other Braves arms because he's been used lightly and needs a bit more refinement than the names ahead of him. Could be a bit of a cold weather prep arm bias. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-09-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which Braves pitcher has the highest upside ?
(Jason from Charlotte)
Greg Maddux.

I dunno, man. I can tell you who intrigues me the most, just because of the narrative around them selecting him at the time and his pro success to date. That's Ian Anderson. But I'll leave questions of the absolute highest ceiling to our prospect gurus. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sixto Sanchez or Ian Anderson?
(Carlo from California)
Sixto. And yeah, I've seen the reports on Anderson this year. They are great. He's a great prospect. Sixto. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-09-08 19:00:00 (link to chat)Which Braves pitching prospect has the ace/#2 potential based on strikeout pitches?
(Harry from Lancaster, PA)
I've been extremely encouraged with what I've seen of Ian Anderson, who the team selected just a few months ago in the top five. However, I'm going with 19-year-old southpaw Kolby Allard. He's struck out greater than a batter per inning at Single-A Rome this season while posting a 3.73 ERA in just over 60 innings. It blows my mind that 13 teams passed on him in the 2015 draft. (George Bissell)
2016-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. Please rank these starting pitchers in terms of stuff: Dillon Cease, Thomas Szapucki, Alec Hanson, Cal Quantril, Luiz Gohara, Ian Anderson, Justin Dunn, Michael Kopech.
(Ralph from Bronx)
Hmmm...pure stuff. This is a great question.

Lets go...Alec Hanson first maybe? He doesn't throw as hard as Kopech but I think he has a better breaking ball right now in its pure form. Then Kopech, I suppose, just because of the velo. Let's say Cease third, Dunn fourth? Those guys could be reversed, too. Quantrill fifth, Ian Anderson, then Gohara, then Szapucki. All these guys have great stuff though. (Adam McInturff)
