BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)NL catchers or middle relievers you see w surprising value in 2017?
(db from Pgh)
At NL catcher, I like Andrew Susac and Devin Mesoraco, especially Mesoraco. I think a lot of other folks like Susac, too, so he might not end p being a bargain. Mesoraco is more likely to be available at a bargain price due to the ssignificant injury concerns.

As for NL middle relief, I like Edubray Ramos, who is so good that he might end up being promoted from middle relief to closer sooner rather than later. I also like Grant Dayton and Koji Uehara due to their K rates. (Scooter Hotz)
