|2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Overall, who is the best pitching prospect in the Midwest League?|
(Slaphappy from Indiana )
|The league is deep in pitching this year. A few weeks ago I would have said Dylan Cease. I think Emmett is high on Dustin May, I like Reggie Lawson.
- Nathan (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)|
|2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Thoughts on the Great Lakes rotation? Obviously Dustin May is dreamy, but I'd love to hear more about A.J. Alexy. Thanks.|
(Steve from LA)
|I wish I could tell you about Alexy, but I've missed him this year. I've had some misfortune with Great Lakes and ended up with Jordan Sheffield three times. I can confirm that May is very dreamy though, I saw him twice and think he's legit.
-Emmett (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)|
|2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)||Can you name 3 guys in A ball who have similar potential and could blow up like those before them (ie: Acuna, Jimenez, Robles, Vladito). Looking to snag the next stars in my league... Thanks in advance!|
(Peter from Houston)
|We get these questions year round so it's hard to keep track of guys you haven't heard of or aren't rostering already but guys we like are: Dustin May, Daniel Brito, Estevan Florial, Christian Pache. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)||whose your favorite pennystock prospect?|
(kjesanis from worcester)
|Mmmm, again depends a bit on depth of your league but I've been all in on Dustin May. I also like Derian Cruz with Atlanta despite his ice cold start. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2017-03-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)||What prospects are you looking to buy a bunch of pre-season stocks this year so this time next year you their stock will be drastically higher so you can say to everyone "Look I got in on the ground floor on ___"?|
(Igor from At a Bar)
|So the "problem" - and it's not really a problem at all - when you contribute to lists is that I've pretty much revealed all of my "helium" guys, and our lists reflect them. So like I can give you, say, Thomas Szapucki, Dustin May, and Alec Hansen, but BP's writings and lists already have that purchase price built in. (Jarrett Seidler)|
|2017-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Pick two to round out dynasty keepers on the farm: Dustin May, Duane Underwood, Mark Appel, Thyago Viera, Adalberto Mejia, Franchy Cordero. Thanks!|
(Steve from Wilmington)
|My Dustin May love is well known. The rest of that list is uh, something. Mejia I guess. Ben is psychically sending me messages to tell you not to roster prospect relievers in a dynasty league. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2016-12-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Favorite breakout prospect for 2017? What about someone who you think will suffer a drop in status?|
(Francisco from Maryland)
|Breakouts I'll be watching for: Anderson Tejeda, Dustin May, Joey Wentz, Riley Pint
Guys I could see falling: Jorge Mateo, Adonis Medina, Anderson Espinoza, Jahmai Jones (Jeffrey Paternostro)
|2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)||Thanks for doing this Wilson.
Figure you'd be a good guy to ask- how are the early returns on the dodgers draft this year?
(smelmoth from The Cape)
|So far, so really, really good. Lux has crushed the ball across a couple levels. There's no power there yet, though there could be a bit down the line, and the skill set is broad and impressive. Smith I just wrote up the other day, linked below. Big fan, fits the organizational mold of an athletic catcher with unusual agility and quickness behind the dish. One of the fastest transfers on the pop you'll see, enough raw material with the bat to project decent enough offensive value. I like him a good bit, and I felt similarly about Mitchell White, who looked great over a couple innings when I caught him. Filthy cutter, nice little foundation of a curveball, extremely athletic delivery. Looks like a steal in the 2nd round. Dustin May got some serious and, from the sound of it, well-deserved digital ink on his Swansonian coiffe from Matt Pullman last month, too. And then they paid a couple guys late, including Chris Mathewson out of Long Beach State, who I liked at least for the raw material this spring.
