2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)Yo Craij what's up? My question for you is what active baseball player would you say is most similar to Todd Walker? My sister is looking for a new favorite player.
(Pelecos from Granville)
Todd Walker expert Ben Carsley tells me it's Neil Walker. I don't know why but this whole discussion just makes me miss Mark Bellhorn and Bobby Hill. (Craig Goldstein)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2009-06-09 14:30:002009 Draft CoverageOne of the great things about being at BP is having great help just a few keyboard clicks away. I asked Rany, who did his fantastic series on draft history, if he remembers a draft that was better 11-20 than 1-10. Rany jumped into action for me, and found just one in 15 years: 2002.

Top Ten: B.J. Upton, Zack Greinke, Prince Fielder, Jeff Francis.
11-20: Hermida, Joe Saunders, Scott Kazmir, Nick Swisher, Cole Hamels, James Loney, Denard Span.

The best example is 1994, where Garciaparra, Konerko and Varitek went 12-14. Needless to say, the top 10 that boasted Paul Wilson, Ben Grieve, Todd Walker and Jaret Wright wasn't as good. (Bryan Smith)
