DateQuestionAnswer
2019-07-08 20:00:00 (link to chat)Will Wilmer Font or Walter Lockett be given a starting opportunity in NY this season?
(Craig from Chicago)
Wheeler seems like he's gone, Vargas is probably next out, they're talking about moving Matz to the pen, there's an underrated chance they shop Syndergaard, and there's basically no rotation depth past these two and Kay. Seems likely to me. (Jarrett Seidler)
2019-03-15 16:00:00 (link to chat)Any guess about who might be in best position for the most Vulture Wins?
(MauerPower from NJ)
Man, it's hard enough projecting wins. Projecting vultured wins seems near impossible. I'd target some teams that have strict TTO limits for their starters like the Rays, A's or Pirates. Let's say, Wilmer Font, Ryne Stanek, Liam Hendriks and Richard Rodriguez. (Mark Barry)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wilmer Font, Keone Kela or Matt West?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
Kela has better stuff, which is pretty crazy to think about. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you love Wilmer Font as much as I do, cause I'm head over heels ? Seriously, what's his ceiling ?
(Ann Nonymous from San Diego)
Back of the bullpen type. Maybe a closer, but most likely a setup guy. I'm a big fan of Wilmer as well. I've known him since he was 17. He was one of the largest 17-year-olds I've ever seen, and he was already throwing near-elite gas. (Jason Parks)
