DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Tyler Chatwood finally turned into a real boy? Or was the second half last year a fluke?
(Elvis from Graceland)
I won't call him a fluke, but I'm not convinced yet. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)No where like Fairport! Own it Adam! Grabbed Westbrook of the waiver wire. Decent add? (H2H 12 teamer)
(RLewis from Fairport NY)
I'm not a fan. Who else is out there? Tyler Chatwood seems to be lingering on wires everywhere and I like him a bit. (Paul Sporer)
2011-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)fair enough, what kind of ceiling do you think Garrett Richards has?
(NoahBraun from SD)
I'm a big fan of Richards, and have never really bought the growing consensus that Tyler Chatwood is the better pitcher. He might have the best two fastballs in the system, and he's gone from being unaccountably wild to extremely pitch efficient and capable of getting 15 groundballs in a row. (Sam Miller)
2011-07-13 12:30:00 (link to chat)Do you see the Angels trying to acquire Heath Bell? They seem unlikely to be able to acquire a decent 3B with power, so would their best bet to make (and advance in) the post-season be to ride Weaver and Haren and a shut-down bullpen?
(Dennis from LA)
That's not the worst idea, though the Angels have already committed quite a few bucks to their bullpen and Jordan Walden hasn't disappointed.

Yikes, Tyler Chatwood has a 4.7 BB/9, a 4.7 K/9, and a 3.62 ERA. I know he's a groundballer, but something's gotta give. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)What is Tyler Chatwood's ceiling looking like? Is there much of chance of him becoming a good #2? I'm assuming it's size and not stuff that keeps his ceiling down?
(mrenick from Little rock)
I think it's fair to say size, command and changeup are all issues, but he's a really good arm. (Kevin Goldstein)
