2017-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)My farm consists of Gleyber Torres, Vlad Guerrero Jr, Franklin Barreto, Austin Meadows, Scott Kingery, Mickey Moniak, Blake Rutherford, Michael Kopech, Mitch Keller and Tyler Mahle. Plus recently graduated Amed Rosario, Bradley Zimmer and Clint Frazier. Is there any positions or areas I should focus on as I work to be competitive in 2019?
(Trip from SC)
Trip. Dude. You're kidding me, right? That is a ridiculous farm system, and seems pretty well-timed for your 2019 target date. I mean, really.

Just to be sure, I checked with Scooter Hotz of our prospects team. His take: "I agree with your assessment. I would also add that with prospects, donít worry about positional need. Focus on getting the best prospects regardless of position. If you end up with a surplus of players at a position in the majors, use the trade market to re-organize your roster positionally. That will give you more value than prioritizing positional need over getting the best player available."

(I will note that Scooter and I are in a fantasy league together. I've spent the entire year with a surplus of OFs and a lack of RPs, and he had a surplus of RPs and a lack of OFs, and we never got it together to make a trade. So do as we say, not as we do) (Rob Mains)
2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Did Tyler Mahle get any consideration? Looked like the best SP in the Southern League this year, and it didn't seem to be just smoke and mirrors - good K rate, low walks, kept throwing one great game after another.
(buckb2 from Huntsville)
He did. He's another guy that gets unfairly dinged because our Southern League coverage is a bit patchy this year, and we haven't gotten a team member on him before the list got locked. Like with Florial, have some coming up. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)How good can Tyler Mahle be in the MLB? Does he have Ace upside given what he's shown this year?
(Pedro from Deep South)
Pedro, see my response to Billy from Beantown's question. I went through the same drill with this question, except that I had to look him up in the BP Annual's index to find out where he plays. Cincinnati! I get it. As for ace upside, with the qualification that I'm an idiot who knows nothing when it comes to prospects, I note that (1) he didn't make our Top 101 list in the spring, and (2) his performance this year, while undeniably awesome, is pretty out of line with what he's done at every level prior to this year. It's entirely possible that he's turned a corner at 22 and is now on a different trajectory. But I'd hesitate to make that call after just 14 starts. He should be fine, but there aren't that many aces out there. (Rob Mains)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)How good can tyler mahle be as a fantasy SP?
(pedro from Deep South)
The consensus on Mahle is mid-rotation upside. But remember what I just said about Steve? Steve really loves Tyler Mahle. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-08-01 16:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Tyler Mahle?
(Ryan from US)
Solid pitcher, throws lots of pitches for strikes, not a future ace but could be a pretty solid mid-level starter long term. (Mike Gianella)
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me the names of a few prospects, outside of the Top 101, that have the highest upside?
(cracker73 from Florida)
LHP Ian Clarkin, RHP Tyler Mahle, SS Kevin Newman (Steve Givarz)
