BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is your assessment of carlos sanchez? is he good enough to diplace gordon beckham this year?
(temple from madison)
Sanchez handles the bat well, makes contact, above-average runner, but lacks baseball instincts and has no power. Relies a lot on his feet and making contact... many of the hits he tallied in A+, AA, will be taken away in AAA and especially MLB. I think he's a reserve. Reminds me too much of Ramon Santiago. There's a chance I am light on him, but when the swing is bad and there's no pop, it's difficult to see past the bench. (Jason A. Churchill)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am looking at having to start Giovatella or Raburn at 2B in my AL-only league this year. Is this the year Raburn finally puts it together?
(cooldude from Mpls)
I hope so. I have him at MI in CBS AL-only. Coincidentally, I have Giovatella at 2B too. Ramon Santiago doesn't pose much of a threat, but apparently Brandon Inge is looking pretty good at 2B, and he could cut into his time. As a cheap MI in AL-only, his power upside makes him worth the gamble, but this Inge news is certainly disconcerting. (Derek Carty)
