BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are people telling you about Dodgers speedster Trayvon Robinson? Will he be a quality hitter (.275/.345/.450) or more of a Xavier Paul? Over/under on him on 2011's Top 101?
(Sanchez101 from Santa Barbara, CA)
If he can prove that last year was real and not a product of the Cal League, he'll be in the Top 101. He has far better overall tools than Paul, but the amount of swing-and-miss in his game is a definite issue. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-12-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Barlett for Xavier Paul, or Kyle Russell. Probably closer in talent.
(Tripon from L.A.)
Much more reasonable, yes.

In an IM last night, Kevin called Russell "The Texas Wind Machine" which had me falling out of my chair laughing. (Jay Jaffe)
