BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will Joe Mahoney overtake (if not already) Brandon Snyder for the O's best 1B prospect? He's shown a lot of power this year...can he keep it going? Thanks.
(Reggie from MD)
Not a fan. 23-year-old guy putting up good, not great numbers in High-A? Pass. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Brandon Snyder was very good in AA but has been not so hot in limited time at AAA. Is he still an above average long-term solution for the O's at 1b?
(Jay from Madison)
I don't think he was ever an above-average long term solution for O's at first base, so, No. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-05-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Have you heard anything from scouts about Brandon Snyder?
(Mike from Jax, FL)
Same 'ol story. Dude can hit, but not like a first baseman. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Brandon Snyder? Can he handle 3B better than Billy Rowell? Will his bat support a permanent move to 1B?
(mike from DC)
Saying he can handle third base better than Billy Rowell is like saying he'll be a better dictator than Idi Amin. Both are pretty bad there, and both have no MLB future at the hot corner. I do like Snyder's bat, but at the same time, like you point out, is it enough to be a 1b? I don't see it. (Kevin Goldstein)
