BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)If I have Victor Robles, Ronald Acuna, Rhys Hoskins, Eloy Jimenez, Kyle Tucker, Juan Soto and Fernando Tatis Jr on my minor league dynasty roster, who do I drop, if anyone, to add Bo Bichette?
(Steve from AZ)
Uh...I think I speak for all of us when I say $#%& YOU! I dunno man, trade one of those dudes (Soto? Tatis? Hoskins?) for an awesome player, immediately pick up Bichette, cackle, remember you're supposed to act like you've been there before, take a breath, compose yourself, lose control, cackle again. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)When will the next major trade occur?
(Jeb from Illinois)
Let's say Sonny Gray to the Astros on July 18 for Kyle Tucker, Franklin Perez, and Teoscar Hernandez. (Mark Barry)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)So gut feeling who do you think will be the biggest prospect traded at the deadline?
(Mike from NY)
We had an interesting discussion at the Baltimore event about this. I think I landed on Triston McKenzie or Kyle Tucker. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-05-22 23:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank in order of highest fantasy upside: Kyle Tucker, Vlad Guerrero, Rafael Devers, Juan Soto (this is my order)... Thank you!
(TrickDaddy14 from Bronx, NY)
Strictly ceiling, no regard for proximity/risk/etc.? Vladito, Devers, Tucker, Soto for me (Wilson Karaman)
2017-03-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is the hype real on Luis Robert?
(Ben from LA )
Lots of Luis Robert questions tonight. Admittedly I don't know a ton about him, so I had to call in the big guns.

Bret says "Five-tool athlete with mini-Moncada upside. Probably A ball once he signs, maybe 2 years away. Top 30 prospect right now for me, similar to Kyle Tucker."

Also, Wilson wrote about him a bit in a recent "Ocean Floor" piece. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=31191 (Mark Barry)
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)Kyle Tucker similar to Austin Meadows?
(Hank from Texas)
Man, everyone I talked to internally and externally talked up Tucker's power. Meadows finally found his, so why not. Meadows is more athletic and a better center fielder, even if the Pirates will play him in a corner. Very, very different swings though. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank order the following outfielders with respect to fantasy potential -- Kyle Tucker, Kyle Lewis, Tyler O'Neill, Corey Ray, Lourdes Gurriel, Christin Stewart.
(b from c)
I said I wouldn't do the Parks thing for these, but I am sorely tempted just due to the complete lack of context.

My non-binding take

Tucker, Ray, O'Neill, Stewart, Gurriel (have the Jays even said he is an outfielder-only). Lewis I want to punt on until I see him healthy, but if you want to risk it, you could get him as high as second pretty easily. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-09-26 20:00:00 (link to chat)In a 14 team, 40man roster dynasty I've grown board of winning...seriously. So I have decided to rebuild. I now roster an exciting group of high risk players: Devers, Robles, Acuna, Rosario, Isan Diaz, Kyle Tucker, Eloy Jimenez, Kilome, Keller, Allard, and Fried. Then add in young MLBers like Harper, Rizzo, Altherr, Cotton, Cody Reed, Matz, Jake Thompson, and Skaggs. With only 4 teams as suitable buyers, would you be happy with Urias & Gallo for Bumgarner, & Josh Bell & Ryan Healy for Cole Hamels? I likely could also land Giolito. I'm currently trying to convince the guy that Giolito's value has bottomed out. Any example as to how Giolito has been valued in any of your leagues, or what can you tell me about your opinion on him moving forward? Kind of a long winded question, but a fun one! Thanks in advance!
(BPChatsChangedMyLife from Niagara, ON)
Giolito hasn't been traded in any of my leagues, so I have no direct experience with that. I own Giolito in two of my leagues, a deep NL-only keeper league and a deep mixed keeper league. I didn't trade him in either league because in both leagues, I was more focused on 2017 and beyond than 2016.

I don't think I'd be happy with dealing Bumgarner for Urias & Gallo (assuming you're getting Urias & Gallo). I'm lower on Gallo than most. I'm not sure he'll make enough contact to be a great roto player, and I think that even if he does eventually become a productive roto player, it'll take a while for him to get there and the struggles will be brutal.

Assuming you're on the Bell/Healy side of the Cole-Hamels-for-Josh-Bell-and-Ryon-Healy trade, I'd hang on to Hamels, too. I haven't seen enough from Healy to convince me that his big step forward this year will be 100% sustainable, and Hamels is really dang good. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for the chat. Do you have an opinion on Kyle Tucker? What kind of upside does he potentially have?
(cjbuettfr from Lyon, france)
Could be a first division starter, and I'm expecting him to be the top name on Houston's top 10 this off-season. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-03-14 14:30:00 (link to chat)It seems like some love has been lost for Kyle Tucker. Top 6 pick with middle of the order bat still? or has something changed?
(brad14 from NJ)
I'm not too concerned; it's just a couple hundred AB's for an 18-year-old in short season ball. He wasn't totally overwhelmed by the caliber of pitching he saw, so all systems are go for now. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-01-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you please rank the following outfield prospects on how much you like them in terms of future fantasy potential? Andrew Benintendi, Trent Clark, Kyle Tucker, Daz Cameron and Cornelius Randolph. Thanks for the chat!
(big time timmy jim from somewhere)
I would go Benintendi, Tucker, Clark, Cameron, Randolph. (Christopher Crawford)
