BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-06-23 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Colin! Is Starlin Castro going to be the first homegrown legitimate star position player for the Cubs since Appetite for Destruction was topping the charts?
(David Geiser from State College, PA)
He has a real chance at being the first one that isn't for some baffling reason stuck being the short side of a platoon with Koyie Hill. (Colin Wyers)
2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)In an OPB/holds redraft league, would you drop Frank Fransisco for Soto or Gavin Floyd? I have McCann, but having Soto for off days could be groovy.
(Will from Mactaquac)
Isn't there some Koyie Hill drama going on in Chicago right now, or did Sweet Lou already drop that BS and put Soto back where he belongs? (Marc Normandin)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Soto, is this year just a "sophomore slump" or is really just a kind of fat, one year wonder?
(Justin from Normal, IL)
It's really perplexing. When Koyie Hill is a better alternative than anyone you know you have a problem. A lot of people immediately point to his .245 BABIP, but I'm not willing to simply assume that regresses to .330 anything like that. He might be hitting the ball with less force given that his plate discipline data actually portends positive results with a lower swing rate and higher contact rate. That tells me the contact just isn't solid at all. (Eric Seidman)
