BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What Yankee prospect is most likely to make an eventual impact?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Saying "most likely" puts an interesting twist on the question. Guys like Tyler Austin, Slade Heathcott and Mark Montgomery will all likely have extensive big league careers, but I don't know how impactful those careers will be. I still believe Gary Sanchez's bat can carry him to the Major Leagues and I think there's some hope that he can catch well enough that you live with it because of the impact of his bat. (Mark Anderson)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these Yankee OF prospects, Slade Heathcott, Mason Williams or Tyler Austin, do you feel will have the best major league career?
(TheDonCharleone from North Carolina)
Austin. Better bat. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are the improvments Slade Heathcott has made a mirage? Or does he continue to get better?
(Ray from Minneapolis)
Not sure. I might be slow to the dance with Heathcott. I'm not a huge believer right now. I'll gladly admit I was slow to get it, but I don't see a star like some people do. I can't see it at all, actually. (Jason Parks)
