2014-10-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite James Shields clubhouse story?
(Nike from Doit)
There's a good one involving Christian Binford and ice cream, but I'll probably save that for next spring training. (Andy McCullough)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Do Christian Binford and Jonathan Dziedzic of Wilmington profile mostly as relievers at the highest level, or is there a chance for them in the rotation of (hopefully) good teams?
(Bill from Bozeman)
Binford is swing/long man for me with a chance to be a 5th starter if he can add some mustard to the mix. After watching him in person, his numbers are definitely better than his scouting report. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)How strong is the Royals crop of young arms including Kyle Zimmer, Miguel Almonte, Jason Adam, Christian Binford, Sam Selman, and new acquisitions Brandon Finnegan and Foster Griffin? BTW, what can you tell me about Selman as he doesn't seem to get as much press as the others? Cheers
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
it's very strong. I really like Almonte and believe Adam will continue to progress. I like Finnegan quite a bit too. if Zimmer could prove healthy, then the crop would be even stronger. Given the control problems, I am not convinced Selman is a starter long term, and that's the biggest reason you don't hear more about him nationally. (Mark Anderson)
