2014-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you think Tommy La Stella projects at the MLB level? With Uggla's struggling continuing, and the Braves' offense currently in a rut, is there a chance La Stella makes it up by the break? Ramiro Pena is a great super-sub, and Tyler Pastornicky is a roster spot capable of multiple positions, but it seems the Braves could maybe start getting some MLB looks for La Stella to see what he is. Thanks. My first time, so apologies if I violated any protocols.
(@Jervass from Atlanta)
It's hard to say what the Braves are going to do because there's such a strong influence of money involved with Uggla's contract. Of course, that's sunk cost, so there's no reason for them to ruin a potentially good season because they already screwed up. We all know that teams do that all the time, though. As for La Stella...hitters gonna hit. He's not a good second baseman, but Uggla isn't exactly Robbie Alomar out there either. He's probably their best option, the only question is when the Braves are willing to have an expensive one-dimensional bench player in Uggla. I don't think we'll see a complete change, but I wouldn't be surprised to see La Stella up this summer at some point in some kind of time-share deal at second. (Jeff Moore)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Early thoughts on Tyler Pastornicky and tha Braves ?
(William from Pensacola, FL)
I haven't seen Pastornicky yet, but the numbers aren't too awful. He's currently 12th in True Average amongst shortstops (with 50-plus plate appearances). As for Atlanta, I still think they win the division, even with Washington's start. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-04-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)How important is a batting order? Besides the first inning players are not getting up in the spot you want them in anyway.
(Matt from NY)
From a real-life perspective, it's not as important as most casual fans assume. From a fantasy perspective, it's potentially very important since things like RBIs and Runs matter. I avoided Tyler Pastornicky this year because, as a speed-first kind of guy, I didn't want any part of him batting 8th in front of the pitcher since he's not going to run as much as you'd like. (Derek Carty)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)For this year and the future, who provides more value: Jean Segura or Tyler Pastornicky?
(cooldude from Mpls)
This year: Pastornicky. Future: Segura. Be careful with Pastornicky, though. He's a good bet for full-time at-bats, but if he bats 8th (he should), that's the kiss of death for a National League speedster, and the Braves SS doesn't offer much else. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tyler Pastornicky in an NL only keeper league. Does he start the year in the majors and what chance does he have of staying around?
(Bravos from The A)
Yes, he does start the year in the majors and he stands a good chance of staying around. He answered some of the questions about his bat this year, and given the lack of other options for the Braves, he'll be given a lot of rope. Good speed sleeper. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rapid Fire: Ten fantasy rookies who will make impacts in 2012 (5 pitchers, 5 batters): _______? Go!
(Francois from Toronto)
Okay, rapid fire...
P: Yu Darvish, Matt Moore, Addison Reed, Julio Teheran, Brad Peacock
H: Jesus Montero, Yoennis Cespedes, Mike Trout, Devin Mesoraco, Tyler Pastornicky
There are certainly others that will have impacts too. I actually have an article about fantasy-worthy rookies in the Fantasy Baseball Index magazine that will hit newsstands this preseason, if you're interested in my take on other guys. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Surprised by the Braves off season? What do we do if Tyler Pastornicky can't hit ?
(William from Pensacola. FL)
On one hand, a little bit, as I felt like there were some real moves they could make, including getting an ill-fitting Martin Prado off the team or perhaps trading out of their surplus of starting pitching. On the other, the Braves have been run very conservatively in recent years, so I wasn't expecting much. And I suspect, as has been true in recent years, that if Pastornicky doesn't hit they won't do much--or they'll default to Jack Wilson, who can't hit either. (Steven Goldman)
2011-09-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Tyler Pastornicky? Is he a starting SS, or just a utility player?
(Noah from SD)
Could be an every day guy. Not a star, but solid every day guy. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)Does the Braves Front Office have any regrets trading away Yunel Escobar who has been terrific since joining the Jays?
(Zooey from LA)
None. We root for Escobar because we want every trade we make to be win-win for both organizations involved. Alex Gonzalez helped us reach the playoffs last year with his Gold Glove defense and had a huge hit in Game 2 of the NLDS to tie the score. Gonzalez has helped us have a great season again in 2011. Escobar is an extremely talented player and we hope he does well in Toronto and, to his credit, he's shown his 2010 numbers in Atlanta were an aberration.

The interesting thing about that deal, which often goes unmentioned, is the second and third players we got in the trade. Tim Collins, who was used a couple of weeks later to help facilitate a trade for Kyle Farnsworth and Rick Ankiel, has spent the entire 2011 season in the Major Leagues as a left-handed reliever for the Kansas City Royals. The third player, Tyler Pastornicky, projects for us as an everyday shortstop and has hit .315 with 7 HR and 27 SB as a 21-year old in Triple-A. There was a lot more to that trade than just Escobar and Gonzalez. (John Coppolella)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on SS Tyler Pastornicky? Could he be a starting shortstop for you next year?
(Bret from Toronto)
Very young and underrated player who continues to improve. (John Coppolella)
2011-08-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of braves SS Tyler Pastornicky?
(Noah from ATL)
Sorry ... momentary technical glitch.

He's hitting a ton of singles in AAA, which is way better than making a ton of outs. It sounds like the Braves will be giving him a look next spring, and it's possible they'll have so much fun saying his name (go ahead, say it out loud right now -- isn't that enjoyable?) they won't be able to resist giving him the job. His ceiling is strictly Hippocratic in nature -- he won't make so many outs that he'll kill you, but he isn't going to save you, either. (Ken Funck)
2011-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Should I be rooting for Tyler Pastornicky to get a shot at SS for my Braves at some point?
(Max from Work)
Towards the end of 2012, maybe. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)How do you rank Justin Jackson, Tyler Pastornicky, Gustavo Pierre and Hechevarria?
(Bill from Toronto)
Hechevarria, Pierre, big gap, Jackson, Pastornicky. Pierre is a great sleeper in a system desperate for one. (Kevin Goldstein)
