DateQuestionAnswer
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of player do you see Maybin becoming? Does he start hitting for more pop and become Mike Cameron, keep the ball on the ground and become Devon White, or does he become a mystery comp?
(Ria from The floor)
Maybin is a bit of a mystery. I'd expected more power, but he doesn't have a lot of loft in his swing. I still think his overall game compares well to that of Cameron, although as is the case with everyone about whom that is said, he isn't as good as Cammy. Still, I really like Maybin. He also, and take this for whatever it's worth, appears to love the game. It's easy to watch and root for him. (Geoff Young)
2012-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is a good MLB comp for Anthony Gose?
(Ace from Montreal)
Devon White. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-08-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are the 8 CFs ahead of Jones on that list? Griffey, Blair, Maddox, Devon White?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Blair, Mays, Lemon, Flood, Busby, North, Maddox, White. (Colin Wyers)
2009-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts on the future production of Dexter Fowler and Colby Rasmus? What is their upside as you see it and who gets there first? Thanks.
(tommybones from brooklyn)
Fowler's upside is Kenny Lofton, but maybe more of a Devon White type of player. Rasmus...Curtis Granderson? (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)Carlos Gomez in the future is what kind of player?
(Mike from Minnesota)
80% of Devon White. Shawon Dunston in center field. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Carlos Gomez the next Devon White, or could be something better than that?
(Mike from Minnesota)
As long as we're going all retro, he has a little bit more of a Marquis Grissom vibe to him. (Nate Silver)
