DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the best team you have seen in your scouting life?
(Larry from NC)
I will preface this by saying that I have not been scouting for that long. I have probably been unaware of the talent of other teams while at games.

But I will say 2014 Myrtle Beach Pelicans. I did my summer internship down there and attended far too many games. Here are the major leaguers from that team: Joey Gallo, Cody Ege, Odubel Herrera, Hanser Alberto, Alexander Claudio, Keone Kela, Chi Chi Gonzalez, Andrew Faulkner, Abel De Los Santos.

While these guys are not in the big leagues yet, they will be soon: Nick Williams, Lewis Brinson, Chris Bostick, Jorge Alfaro, Ryan Cordell, Jose LeClerc, Samuel Wolff

And some other interesting guys with value: Preston Beck, Victor Payano, Kellin Deglan, Michael De Leon, Christopher Garia, Chad Bell

Man was that team loaded... (Steve Givarz)
2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can you gush some more on Jose Leclerc. I cant stop watching that change. But really the question, his two scouting reports from last year have him in middle releif but that was when he was all FB and curve. Where can this third pitch move his cieling?
(jonraypyle from tx)
Tune into our notes piece for tomorrow, I'll have a full write up on him. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)You're a right handed hitter and someone has kidnapped the president and says he'll only let him go if you get a base hit off Jose Leclerc's cutting changeup. If this happens, should I move to Canada?
(Aceathon from Elsewhere)
I'm naming the pitch The Deathball. (Jordan Gorosh)
