BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Your colleagues in the Flags Fly Forever podcast are eyeballing Tommy Joseph as a 30 HR player without killing your average. Given the shallowness of the position do you believe he will sneak his way into the top 10 of 1B? Who would you rather for the next 3 years: Joseph or Greg Bird?
(Punchoutpappy from First in Flight)
I'd prefer Joseph to Bird due to Bird's health concerns. I liked Bird a lot before the injury, though. Not sure Joseph will quite sneak into the Top 10, but it's certainly possible, and I do like him for 30 HR and a .250+ average if he's healthy. (Scooter Hotz)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)Feelings on Eric Thames vs Tommy Joseph?
(ryangong from Vancouver BC)
Both solid values in really nice home parks. I think I'd lean Thames very slightly, but it's close. (Bret Sayre)
2016-06-16 21:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty League: Which catcher would you want this year and long-term? Tommy Joseph, Grandal, or TdA?
(Kion from Pride Land)
Still want d'Arnaud. (Bret Sayre)
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy Joseph has cooled considerably lately. Does he have the chops to make as 1B in the majors? What do you see production wise ROS and in 2017?
(J.T. Chance from Rio Bravo)
Not a big fan of Tommy Joseph' chances to be a top-10 guy in fantasy at 1B at any point. His approach leaves a lot to be desired, and once MLB pitchers figure that out, he'll struggle. It looks like that's already happening. He's going to have to make a big adjustment to his approach to hit enough to stick at 1B long term. Most players who need to make that dramatic a change to their approach can't actually do it. I'm rooting for him, though - I'm a Phillies fan and I live in South Philly. (Scooter Hotz)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)Does Tommy Joseph have a fantasy future still after today's news?
(Paul from Daytona)
He might, but that future might be a couple of years down the road. Unless you're in a deeper dynasty league, feel free to drop him. (Mike Gianella)
2012-12-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, Do you think Tommy Joseph can stick behind the plate? is he #2 in the phillies system for you?
(mbrophy from NJ)
I don't think he can stick behind the plate. I havent started the Phillies list, but he will be in consideration. (Jason Parks)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wondering how the Giants keep winning titles with such a mediocre farm system? The are never ranked very high and they never sign the big free agent guys. What gives?
(Paul Reiger from Bay)
The most precise answer is the draft. Their farm systems haven't ranked high because their top draft picks since 2006 -- Lincecum, Bumgarner, Posey -- haven't spent a lot of time in the minors. . John Barr has done a good job, especially considering he's not simply the domestic scouting director but the one who oversees the international front, too. Barr's first draft was 2008 (Posey, Crawford, Surkamp), but in '09 he drafted Zack Wheeler (traded for Carlos Beltran), Tommy Joseph (traded n the deal to land Hunter Pence) and Belt. Brian Wilson and Sergio Romo were also draftees. Romo a 28th rounder in 2005.

It also helps that Bruce Bochy runs a goldilocks clubhouse and they have leaders (Posey, Pence, Wilson) that don't allow things to crumble. (Jason A. Churchill)
