DateQuestionAnswer
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)
