BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)Yo Craij what's up? My question for you is what active baseball player would you say is most similar to Todd Walker? My sister is looking for a new favorite player.
(Pelecos from Granville)
Todd Walker expert Ben Carsley tells me it's Neil Walker. I don't know why but this whole discussion just makes me miss Mark Bellhorn and Bobby Hill. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-02-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite player that is not a marquee name or highly regarded ? For me its Taylor Pastornicky, I like his approach and flare he plays with
(Derek from Georgia)
I used to really like Mark Bellhorn for the same reasons. He seemed like a guy who was squeezing the most out of his meager (compared to other major leaguers) skills. Now? I'm a big Hit It Over The Wall guy so I'm really looking forward to seeing Mike Napoli in Fenway. Power and patience are my favorite skills and that's Napoli summed up. (Matthew Kory)
2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What minor league free agent most made you say Holy crap HE is still around? I remember watching a Mariner game in July at Yankee stadium and being floored when Mike Sweeney came to bat
(brian from brooklyn)
Mark Bellhorn got like 150 ABs in the Colorado system this year. That surprised me. Hell, Strickland, who I wrote about. I had no idea he was still around, and he's pretty good. (Joe Sheehan)
