BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)what do you think of Scott Van Slyke? Yes he's old but he can't be any worse than Loney or Rivera can he?
(Jason from Quebec)
No, he probably can't be, even though he's 25 and it's Albuquerque. And Rivera just hurt his leg sliding into third, so it's possible that he might miss some time. I'm rooting for Van Slyke, if only because there's a chance he might be as funny as his old man. Andy Van Slyke was hilarious. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)do you think either Scott Van Slyke or Alex Castellanos can make an impact for Dodgers? Both are obviously older but both have crushed the ball for 2 or 3 years straight.
(Jesse Pinkman from ABQ)
And yes, I think Castellanos could help, too. He's raking, and Kevin wrote in April that scouts can see him as average at second. The Dodgers aren't in need of help at second quite as desperately as they are at first, but I expect you'll see both of these guys at some point this season. (Ben Lindbergh)
