2017-09-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)It seems like Wilson and I share similar tastes in fantasy baseball assets. In his 2018 dynasty targets post, he highlighted several potential breakout names. Of these three, who will I regret not owning in 2018? Wander Javier, Jesus Luzardo, Nolan Jones.
(Chris B from St. Louis, MI)
The Nolan Jones reports from the Penn were...intriguing. Javier probably has a little more upside though if that is your thing. Love the Jesus Lizard, but the stuff isn't so good that I'd take him over the bats yet. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-09-18 23:00:00 (link to chat)In your 3B on the ocean floor piece this year you wrote that Nolan Jones could climb up dynasty rankings if he shows signs of translating potential into game skills. The numbers look good but I know the limits of that. What's your verdict?
(Rob from Alaska)
Solid season for Jones, yeah. He's still eons away from sniffing a big-league roster still, and the body still has a whole bunch of maturing to do. But the lauded approach translated well in the NYPL, he made strides adjusting to third base and growing into that position, and he's maintaining his course developing into a well-rounded player with an above-average eventual ceiling. By this time next year he's got a shot to be one of the more intriguing young 3B prospects around for dynasty purposes, particularly in OBP formats, where the strike zone command is hella attractive as a lynchpin of the profile. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Got a favorite out of this mish mash of low level prospects? Monte Harrison, Khalil Lee, Yanio Perez, Brandon Marsh, A.Gimenez, Nolan Jones, Jake Gatewood
(Nose Pincher from Florida)
If this is a fantasy question, I'd go after Harrison's offensive upside, and he's actually one of the closer guys there to major league horizon. For prospect list purposes I think Gimenez was probably closest to making the 50, although he wasn't all that close. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
