2019-05-01 12:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Rangers going to actually find success with all the freaky athletic/questionable hit tool guys they seem to have a deep love for, or is this just going to result in us sitting here in three years with some decent pitchers and a half-baked lineup?
(Joey from Galveston)
So you really only need to hit on a couple of these guys because you won't have places to play all of them anyway. Which is the argument for collecting a bunch of them and ending up with the next set of Mazara/Gallo/Odor (I don't know if this rebuts your half-baked lineup theory to be fair). And very very rarely Bubba Thompson becomes like Ronald Acuña. Probably not, but he has better odds than the safer guys. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-03-15 16:00:00 (link to chat)How do you do Mark. Question regarding two prospects in Jazz Chisholm & Bubba Thompson. In a vacuum do you prefer one over the other or are the nearly equal to you for fantasy?
(Bobby Ray from ‘Merica)
I think they're both pretty exciting, but gimme Jazz. (Mark Barry)
2019-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)What players on this list do you see having the most potential to make a big leap in ranking next year? Thank you
(brad from NJ)
Back of the napkin: Kristian Robinson, Luis Oviedo, Julio Pablo Martinez, Travis Swaggerty, Jordyn Adams. Drew Waters, Bubba Thompson. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any particularly positive or negative reports on Bubba Thompson, so far?
(zapotter from NY)
Reports are that he has been coachable and willing to learn. As someone who was focused at least equally on footbal in HS, that's something that will help him. There is always a lot of variance with premium athletes, but Thompson is seemingly giving himself his best chance. (Scott Delp)
