DateQuestionAnswer
2011-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Tony Gwynn Jr. a fair comp for Gorkys Hernandez?
(Guapo from Erie, PA)
I've heard worse. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yunel Escobar, Gorkys Hernandez, Charles Morton and a lefty reliever for Jake Peavy seems basicaly to me like giving Escobar for Peavy who is a very cheap superace for 4-5 years. Is it a good or bad deal for the Braves?
(JOHN54 from Alabama)
I think you're being a little too harsh on Morton, and Gorkys, um... has a great name and could be, er, sort of a fourth OF. It's not a great return, you're right. It was a more exciting deal with Tommy Hanson as part of it. It's a good deal for the Braves. I've written elsewhere (tho' I'm not the only one) to suggest that Peavy's H/R splits suggest he is overvalued to some degree, and no doubt that figures in.

I'm so certain I typed "sex" in that last entry, but it came out "self." And you know what? Self-life is a really interesting concept that I like even better. (Steven Goldman)
2008-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am looking forward to attending the Future's Game. Traditionally alot of these players have made an MLB impact. I am wondering what you project of Dexter Fowler, Gorkys Hernandez, and Taylor Teagarden. Will I see you there?
(jake1m from Jenny Lind, Ca.)
I won't be able to make it to the game. I don't get too many chances to travel right now, between family and radio obligations.

I think that Teagarden would have gotten the call over Ramirez had he been healthy when Laird got hurt. But therein lies the rub - staying healthy has been his biggest problem as a professional. I like him better defensively than the other Ranger catching prospects. I think that Fowler's development is one of the reasons why the Rockies are entertaining notions of trading Holliday. My only concern with Hernandez is whether he develops any power, but I love his speed and his contact rate. (Jeff Erickson)
2008-06-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Gorkys Hernandez or Jordan Schafer as Atlanta's centerfielder of the future?
(Mike from Atlanta)
Gorkys Hernandez. We'll always wonder now if Schafer's 2007 was legit or not after he got bushted for HgH. I think Schafer will be in a different organization by the start of next season. (John Perrotto)
2008-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Gorkys Hernandez or Desmond Jennings?
(Bron from Ontario)
Jennings by a wide margin. Both are top 100 guys though. (Kevin Goldstein)
