DateQuestionAnswer
2019-02-25 16:00:00 (link to chat)Does Nick Madrigal see the Majors this year? If so, what do you expect from him?
(Buddy from Peoria, IL)
Probably not. You will dream of Dustin Pedroia, you will get, I dunno, right-handed Joe Panik? (Jon Hegglund)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Luis Urias a 2B or SS when he arrives in SD and your thoughts on his upside ? Thanks
(Ernie from San Diego)
My understanding is that he's a batting average asset. The upside is non-existent. No power, no speed. It's very Joe Panik. (George Bissell)
2017-03-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)"Low minors second base prospect is always a tough profile." Ahhh, so THAT'S why every scout crapped all over me, and Dustin, and Cano, and Mookie B., and on and on and on. Maybe second base shouldn't be looked at as a "tough profile" any more than any other position.
(Jose Altuve from Cooperstown, but later)
So Pedroia was a shortstop prospect until Double-A, Cano was mostly a shortstop until High-A (and looked like he would end up at third if we're counting), and Betts played all over the place. People will bring up Jose Altuve until the cows come home, but isn't the guy who turned out to have an 8 hit more the exception than the rule?

Here's an exercise: group your favorite X number of MLB second basemen and see how many were second basemen in the low-minors.

I'll start. Aside from the above, Daniel Murphy wasn't, Ian Kinsler wasn't, Ben Zobrist wasn't, Javier Baez wasn't, Brandon Phillips wasn't, Neil Walker wasn't, Dee Gordon wasn't, Logan Forsythe wasn't, Brian Dozier mostly wasn't, I think Jason Kipnis and Rougned Odor moved there in High-A, hell even Joe Panik moved there in Double-A. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Will Joe Panik and B Crawford rebound? Do you see Nunez, Korean guy cutting into their ABs?
(Ozzie from World of Warcraft)
Nunez won't cut into Panik or Crawford's ABs. I have more faith in Crawford than Panik. As for the Korean guy (I assume you mean Jae-Gyun Hwang), I have no idea. I've seen him listed as a 1B some places, 3B others and floated as someone who can maybe play 2B, too. I'm not even sure which positions he can play credibly. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)Which two of these second basemen would you suggest for a competing team in a 10-team dynasty league: Jon Schoop, Devon Travis, Steve Pearce, Joe Panik?
(Joey from Michigan)
Schoop and Panik, although I thought about replacing Panik with Pearce for a second. (Scooter Hotz)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you sell high on (FBB): Robinson Cano's recent hot streak or Joe Panik's season?
(Rob from Chicago)
Panik. Cano's bounce back and decreased GB rate looks legit. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Joe Panik a taller slightly less toolsy Dustin Pedroia? They seem remarkably similar to me.
(Eric from LA)
Oh man. Player comps...Ahhhhhh...I really like Joe Panik. Pedroia had more power I feel like at a younger age. Different hitters but I see the same guy defensively, I do. (George Bissell)
2015-06-15 19:00:00 (link to chat)How were the following guys as prospects: Joey Butler, Joe Panik, Steven Souza
(Q from Brooklyn)
Panik was seen as a second division second basemen or utility player as late as this past winter, in some circles. Souza's a late bloomer who ran the gamut from toolsy prospect to malcontent to bust to legitimate bat first prospect. Butler was generally viewed as an org guy coming up, although I think some had him as a role 40. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Panik strike you as a guy who can be a full-time, league-average 2B?
(Gee from Alameda)
Yep. I think that's exactly what he is. It's funny, I thought Panik was my favorite "sleeper" going into that draft, and then he ended up going a round too high. Now I think it was a fine pick. In other words, I don't know what I'm talking about. Don't tell Sam. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance of Joe Panik becoming a first-division player? I know his lack of power will hold him back, but he did put up a respectable .447 SLG and .126 ISO prior to being called up (although SSS). Is it possible some of that will transfer to his big league game as he gets acclimated or is the .305/.343/.368 slash line from '14 indicative of his OFP?
(Grizzly from Chicago)
Solid second-division guy was my thought when I saw him in college, and I'll stick with that. Not quite enough "umph" defensively, or in the power department, but a very capable player. (NL West Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Panik just called up. What do you expect from him? He never got the love Wong did, but seems he may become a better Wong.
(Chone Figgins from Los Angeles)
I do enjoy a good Wong joke. However, Kolten is far more talented than Panik. Wong has the skills to be a first division 2B. Don't believe that's in the cards for Panik. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Joe Panik completely fallen off as a prospect? Is he even worth keeping in a dynasty league because of his position?
(Mark from SF)
He's probably not going to be much of a fantasy contributor, and if he is, you'll be able to grab him. Not worth hanging onto in fantasy. As an actual prospect, well, basically the same thing. (Jeff Moore)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the better career: Pete Kozma or Joe Panik?
(Beau from SF)
Kozma. (Jason Parks)
