BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)How about top 2 or 3 pitchers in Giants system with the best shot of cracking a starting rotation?
(Traylude from Nebraska)
Kyle Crick for sure. I suspect Eric Surkamp will be back at some point, although I'm not very high on him. Osich maybe? Not a lot of depth in the system at the moment. (Ian Miller)
2011-07-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the upside of Eric Surkamp? He's got great numbers in AA but is more a #3 or #5 or even a LOOGY?
(Smitty from SF)
He doesn't blow anyone away on a stuff level, but he so damn good at being what he is that I do think he can end up in the back of a rotation. (Kevin Goldstein)
