DateQuestionAnswer
2011-03-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your choice for a cheap catcher . Jesus Flores,Adam Moore or Tyler Flowers ?
(Spirou from Montreal)
Tyler Flowers seems like the only one with legitimate upside out of those guys. And please don't tell me Adam Moore is still going to see playing time. (Jeremy Greenhouse)
2010-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Derek Norris looks great, plenty of people think Ramos is pretty good, and Jesus Flores is ambulatory in Venezuela. Should the Nats be trading one of the catching prospects? Who would matchup well to exchange for a starting pitcher?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
Remember when the Rangers had eight million catchers? Now they have none. Don't trade anyone, as you can never have enough catching. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who the heck do the Nats use in place of Ivan Rodriguez for the next couple of weeks? Wil Nieves as the statrer is bad enough, but there is nobody else available.
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
As you know, Chris Coste is out for the year, and they've pressed Jamie Burke up to Syracuse to get him back in gear ASAP. And last I heard, Jesus Flores hasn't even tried to catch yet in his slow rehab. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see a mercy-minded swap get made if Burke can't be ready in time, but it reflects an interesting industry-wide issue: the lack of readily available free talent behind the plate. It seems worse this year than it has been in recent memory, but the extent to which that's true deserves further exploration. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hopefully Wieters isn't really switch-hitting Jesus Flores!
(dianagramr from NYC)
Har har (Marc Normandin)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)Better catcher in five years: Kurt Suzuki or Jesus Flores?
(Drew W from NoVa)
Oooh, I like this question, in no small part because I really like both of them, but where I see Suzuki as a guy who will always be one of the best second-rank catchers in the game (as in, a step behind the stars), Flores is someone I see with a chance to push his way into the first, even in a NL already gifted with McCann, Martin, and Soto. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)From the sounds of it, the Nats prospects aren't likely to be the high-upside players fans may have hoped, instead a collection of average players. What direction would you take this franchise in the next few years? Make a splash signing Texiera and build a team around him? Try and get CC? Or just hope that nobody minds 90-loss teams indefinitely?
(SC from Philadelphia)
Yeah, their draft approach has been a bit more risk-averse than their organization might have needed since coming down from Montreal. I don't think a big FA signing will be enough to make them good. You have to let Bowden keep working, keep winning trades, try and find more Jesus Flores-caliber players in the various markets. It's a three-year process, I think. (Joe Sheehan)
