DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Tucker Barnhart? How do you evaluate and predict a catchers defensive ability, game management, and all those other "intangibles" for a catcher. Maybe those skills don't directly relate to fantasy, but I think they indirectly affect your pitchers (especially the young ones---see Yadier Molina). I guess what I am asking is who is the next (either in the 2014 draft or in MiLB) Ron Karkovice, Gary Carter, Jim Sundberg, Roy Campanella and in my humble opinion, Yadier Molina?
(Eli from Boston)
This is probably a better question for Parks and the MiLB crew here. I'm not super familiar with Barnhart, as he's not a fantasy asset. I can tell you that the best defensive catching prospect right now is Austin Hedges, and Mr. Hedges is not a Top 100 fantasy name. (Ben Carsley)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are you reading these days, baseball and non-baseball divisions?
(BL from Bozeman, MT)
Baseball: Two items: (1) the new bio of Roy Campanella, for a review here at BP, and (2) Baseball Between the Numbers, in preparation for our new version.
Non-Baseball: This is normally not my thing at all, but I got intrigued by the forthcoming "Game of Thrones" miniseries on HBO and am now on the fourth volume in the series. I usually dislike fantasy, but this is fairly well done with a minimum of annoying unicorn-type elements. It's more a medieval political story or soap opera. (Steven Goldman)
2008-10-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Ruiz, his minor league numbers were great in '06. Platooned in '07. Did poorly in '08. Is this the extent of Ruiz? He's almost 30 now, but is there room for improvement?
(Curll84 from MA)
Based on what I've seen the past two series, I'm certainly willing to consider the possibility that Ruiz is closer to the hitter we saw in 2007 (.259/.340/.396) than the guy who hit .217 this year. Catchers are notorious for playing through injuries that erode their hitting in an effort to hold a pitching staff together - check out Roy Campanella's career sometime; he backed up some MVP years with some Ruiz '08 ones. (Jay Jaffe)
