BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2019-08-08 15:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Aristides Aquino? The power is obviously real, but will he hit enough to be an everyday player in the Majors?
(Chris from DC)
Touched on Aquino before but I think he'll hit enough to be a second-division regular. Of course I thought the same about Jorge Bonifacio. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Feels like Jorge Bonifacio is having the season fans wanted Soler to have yet absolutely no one is paying attention.
(Robert from KC)
My large, adult son! He's been great. He's probably not this good, but I've always thought he had the potential to be a second-division regular. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of future do you see for Jorge Bonifacio?
(BL from (Bozeman))
He's been eaten alive by upper minors breaking stuff since getting promoted last year, and the hit tool hasn't shown much improvement this year from what I've heard. It's more of a 4th OF/2nd division hope at this point, and he'll need to show the ability to make adjustments in order to get there. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)I know you mentioned Jorge Bonifacio on a podcast earlier in the year. What do you think a realistic expectation (ceiling) is for him?
(Jason from NJ)
I think we're looking at a second division starter here. The lack of success at the upper minors is concerning. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)hey craig, thanks for the chat. is there an upper level hitting prospect that u feel isnt receiving the type of love he should? something below the Piscotty line if there is such a thing.
(hdub from the bleachers)
Not sure what exactly the Piscotty line is for you, but I think I'm higher on Jorge Bonifacio than most. He's not an all-star but he should be a capable right fielder who has plenty of fantasy value. He's in the Arcia mold for me. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to rank these OF for dynasty purposes: Phillip Ervin, Nick Williams, Raimel Tapia, Domingo Santana and Jorge Bonifacio.
(Connor from Dallas )
Wow, you hit on a lot of semi-under the radar guys I love here. Tapia, Williams, Santana, Bonifacio, Ervin. But I think it's fairly close all the way around except for Ervin. (Ben Carsley)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you see in Jorge Bonifacio and Orlando Calixte? Calixte seems quietly impressive.
(Kcroyals2012 from Omaha)
I really haven't seen much of Bonifacio yet and sadly probably will completely miss NWA during the regular season. I should get a look at both during either advanced instructs or the Fall League. Saw Calixte and Wilmington last year and was intrigued. While he's not a top guy, he can flash a little with the glove and bat. Maybe utility future? There's talent though. (Jason Cole)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Jorge Bonifacio or Maikel Franco? Did either get much consideration?
(Big Z from atlanta)
I like both; both were on my initial list. Both have quick bats and good raw pop (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you still high on Jorge Bonifacio and impressed with his hit tool? Somehow in my memory your quote stated that a scout murmur about Bonifacio's hit tool and even power potential. Whether that's true or false, let's talk about Jorge.
(Jim from WA)
Bonifacio was a KG favorite, but I like him as well. I don't like the athletic profile, but he has bat speed and legit power potential. The raw power is very impressive, and several scouts have suggested he can stand with some of the big boys in the minors in that department. I'm not THAT high on his power, but Ive seen him launch a few bombs, so I can see the case. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you been able to see Jorge Bonifacio? If so, on a scale of Marge Schott - Martin Kove, how sexy is he?
(Michael from Topeka)
I have. He's much closer to Martin Kove, but he's not that close to Martin Kove. I liked him, though. He has tools; good power potential/ good hit/ very good arm/ present athleticism. He's a legit corner OF prospect. (Jason Parks)
