DateQuestionAnswer
2012-04-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)2 question, professor: 1) Don't you think Adam Silverman with a beard looks like Al Borland, the sidekick from Home Improvement? 2) Thoughts on Tomas Telis? Can he stick at C long-term? If not, will his bat play?
(AdamSilvermanWithABeardLooksLikeAlBorland from New York)
1) Um. 2) Speaking of makeup, Telis works his ass off. He is not a good defensive catcher, and I'm not sold he will ever be a good defensive catcher, but it's not going to be from a lack of effort on his part. I really like the bat; he has great hands, good pop, uses the entire field. On defense, he has enough arm, but his receiving skills are below-average. Without the position, Telis will struggle to find a home anywhere else on the diamond, so its basically catcher or bust. (Jason Parks)
