BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-02-26 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can Danny Santana be a poor mans Jose Reyes? Very similar skill sets.
(Jake from GA)
Umm..no. Santana doesn't have a single skill that matches Reyes' either offensively or defensively. (Bret Sayre)
2015-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Danny Santana in MN is another that looked great due to BABIP. He's a waterbug. Does that type of player have a better or worse chance of full regression?
(Cris E from St Paul, MN)
He's going to regress hard. A thing about some of the high BABIP guys is that they have low strike probability, indicative of the pitcher being afraid of them. Santana doesn't have that; he has one of the highest average strike probabilities in the league. He's a mirage, I think. (Rob Arthur)
2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why does Danny Santana not get more recognition? He has always been a very talented hitter, even with some regression the sheer volume of plate appearances with his skill set could see him put up very similar numbers to what Jose Reyes did last year right?
(Craig from Buford)
Danny Santana teased for a few years and would show flashes of what he could do followed by very bad days in the field and at the plate. Very inconsistent player. Scouts definitely liked him more than prospect list makers all along. He may very well have been a guy who plays better on center stage under the big lights (big leagues). Hanley Ramirez was one of those. (Al Skorupa)
