BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Kennys Vargas be a big league regular, or is he another data point with Calvin Pickering, Kyle Blanks and Walter Young against Very Large Men?
(Mario66 from Pittsburgh)
I'd wager against Vargas working out, but you didn't include Steven Moya (worlds largest human) and Juan Duran. Very upsetting. (Jordan Gorosh)
2009-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)After Walter Young and Brad Eldred, I'm a bit cautious about huge guys who rake in low A with poor walk-strikeout ratios. Can Calvin Anderson avoid their fate?
(Joel from Washington, DC)
Probably not, but he sure is fun to follow. (Kevin Goldstein)
