2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your favorite A's prospect, and why is it Max Schrock?
(Carlo from NorCal)
Couple Puk questions, so I'll use this one as opportunity, as it garners a bonus mention for Schrock on his player page. A.J. Puk is...unique physically. I'm *not* putting a Randy Johnson comp on anyone here, okay, so let's get that straight. But if you were gonna ask me for one dude in minor league baseball to struggle putting it together for most of his 20's, then all of a sudden develop into a monster that strikes out the world at 29, he'd be the interrupting-cow name outta my mouth. That stuff from that arm slot with that extension is disgusting. If he ever gets remotely consistent with it...weeeeeee

Since we're winding down into the dubwise portion of the evening, let's roll on with a hard one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrUakDA9PVE (Wilson Karaman)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can you tell me nice things about A.J. Puk? Or give me hope that Matt Olson will learn how to hit left-handed pitching?
(John from San Francisco)
Kate Morrison saw Puk's Double-A debut and had some very nice things to say about his fastball/slider combo in the Ten Pack this past week. Olson...yeah, that sure looks like a platoon profile. (Jarrett Seidler)
