|2018-01-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)||With the "live" ball era in full bloom it has become harder to find difference making starting pitchers. Outside of the icons we all know of do you have any breakout candiates which could become difference making pitchers. ----Away from the 4 plus eras thanks|

|I *love* Aaron Nola. I think he's going to have a huge year. Jon Gray too. And Dinelson Lamet as a deeper option. (Mark Barry)|

(Craig from San Bernadino, CA)
|I don't see any reason why he can't be. It's fairly obvious that a number of starters in the Padres rotation are just eating innings at this point, and in no way are they long term solutions. I spoke with Padres writer Joe Lanek about this, and he felt like the prospects of seeing Lamet in the majors this season were high. (Eric Roseberry)|
|2016-08-15 22:00:00 (link to chat)||2 separate Padres questions
1. Do you believe Dinelson Lamet can be a decent backend starter in the majors?
2. What is your take on Franchy Cordero who is breaking out in SA? has had years of instruct hype not come to fruition|

|Sorry for the delay, Simone Biles in the spotlight, and you stop what you're doing when she's doing what she does.
I do! I liked Lamet a lot earlier this season, and I didn't see him throw his changeup, which I've gotten okay reports on as a potentially fringe-average pitch. The fastball-slider combo is very good, and while it's not a great command profile he generates quality plane and works north-south pretty well. I'd like him more dominating dudes in the 8th inning, but there's enough there to start him 'til he gives 'em reason not to.
Franchy: I'm pretty shocked at Franchy's run since he got promoted, honestly, and I'll be all the more surprised if he maintains anything close to it. The ahtleticism and explosiveness is obvious, and he can rip hard line drives with the best of 'em. The barrel was pretty wild in my looks, though, and there were a lot of mechanical inconsistencies from start to finish that just didn't give me much confidence that he'd be able to harness it into a coherent, repeatable swing.
