DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Seriously, the Rockies since 2008 have drafted in the first round Rex Brothers, Christian Friedrich, Tyler Anderson and now Kyle Freeland. All Collee LHP, is this a theme of taking these low-ceiling players?
(Wesley from Utah)
I wouldn't call Freeland low-ceiling. Has legit plus stuff and fills up the zone with it. Good performance arm with the scouting card to back it up.

Have to step away for about 20 mins on a couple of calls. Be back... (Draft Day Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)On the NL side, who are some of the closers that are a year a way?
(Willy from Under the Christmas tree)
Rex Brothers, unfortunately since they're going with Hawkins. Mark Melancon, Tyler Clippard, too.. but most of the closer volatility is in the AL. Nick Vincent is a super-sleeper in SD if he can figure out lefties again like he did in 2012. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)Given the volatility of the closers role in baseball, are there a few players you feel may emerge as dark horses during season or maybe even during upcoming spring training? I have seen the cubs fujikawa and a few names in Houston thrown around. Any others you feel may become somewhat relevant or just like in general granted some current closers fail? Thanks Jason!
(joe from CA)
Gregerson, Rex Brothers, Brandon Lyon, Jim Henderson, Al Alburquerquequequque (Jason Collette)
