BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Zach McAllister this season?
(Steve McEwen from Winnipeg)
The same kind of thoughts generated by doing taxes, or listening to a story about a friend of a friend, I suppose. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-04-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Shane Greene, Jesse Hahn, TJ House, Rubby DeLaRosa, Anthony DeScalafani, Jimmy Nelson, Zach McAllister, Trevor Bauer. If one of these is a top 20 pitcher this year, who is it?
(Matt from NJ)
Gimme Bauer in that scenario. It assumes a huge leap in development, but he has the tools to make that dream a possibility. I also like the upsides of Rubby, Hahn, and Desclafani. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you like tonight in Seattle, Erasmo Ramirez or Zach McAllister? How about beyond tonight?
(captnamerca from dunedin)
I'll lean Ramirez going forward. No guess for tonight. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)CLE SP McAllister has NOT walked a batter this year (2 starts). Is his control good enough go sustain a quality stat line?
(Biscuits from SJSU)
Looking at Zach McAllister's career numbers, I'm concerned about his high hit rates even going back to the minor leagues. He seems like a decent back-end option but probably not more than that. (Geoff Young)
