DateQuestionAnswer
2020-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)How excited should I be getting about Tim Cate on the Nationals. Will he be in the rotation the next time they win the World Series? He is my lifeblood.
(Bailey from MD)
I would not get that excited. I think Cate's future is in the pen as a curveball specialist. (Jesse Roche)
2020-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Dodgers were seemingly going to trade Stripling and Joc for Luis Rengifo. Is there another team that should jump on a similar deal? I was thinking maybe the Nats could pursue those two guys for someone like Tim Cate, who is obviously a far better prospect than Rengifo but would still make sense.
(Dan from DC)
Man, two Tim Cate questions! Our prospect team has Cate as an OFP 50 / No. 4 or No. 5 starter. Rengifo, meanwhile last year, was an OFP 50—Second-division keystoner who plays up into an average regular for several years and plays for a long time. Realistically, both are probably 45 role players. I imagine the Dodgers still look to move Pederson and/or Stripling. Plenty of time before the season still. (Jesse Roche)
2019-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tell me more about Tim Cate, can he fill out a little more and add a few MPH to his velo and increase his ceiling a little? Or is he "maxed out". Seems like a sneaky good spect.
(brad from NJ)
His velocity is already down a tick or two from where it was at UCONN, and between the arm issues and a frame that is more narrow than projectable, I'd guess he's settled in about where he's going to as a pro starter. (Washington Nationals Top 10 Chat)
2019-08-28 12:00:00 (link to chat)I'm the commissioner of a league that I've lost interest in, hoping my minor league team will bring back the passion I'm looking for. It's currently led by future ace Tim Cate. This is a great start right?
(Bailey from MD)
I am obligated to rep the fellow CT boys. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
