BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone hates comps. With that out of the way, do you see Manuel Margot being a Marquis Grissom type who has a long, athletic career a bit above average but with a very good glove? Or is Margot's bat better? Wow, he's still 21!
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena, CA)
Grissom had more power, Margot should hit for more average. You have the right idea on the 'good defensive CF, ~average bat' profile though. (Brendan Gawlowski)
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)
