DateQuestionAnswer
2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do guys like Ryan Mountcastle and Bo Bichette figure to move to 2B before having to venture to the OF? Not being able to handle SS is one thing, but surely they can handle the keystone... am I wrong?
(Matt from KY)
You aren't, but some of this comes down to organization need, some of it to how their bodies develop and where the toolset fits best. There is of course a big gap in the offensive bar between second base and left field, so you ideally want to put the "not sticking as shortstop guys" as far left on the defensive spectrum as you can. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-07-19 17:00:00 (link to chat)How does Ryan Mountcastle's hitting project to the majors?
(Tom from WV)
Won't walk a lot, but he'll hit, and that swing is smooth as silk. He's got some power there too, and adding that to his contact skills would make him very intriguing. If he can get through the high minors without his discipline eroding, I think he'd be a solid regular. (Brett Cowett)
2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank the following based on fantasy profile long-term: Jake Bauers, Nick Williams, Scott Kingery, Shed Long, Austin Hays, Ryan Mountcastle. Thanks!
(Fred from Scottsdale)
Williams, Mountcastle, Kingery, Hays, Long, Bauers.

It's tough because you've got some speed-only types in there and at that point it really just depends what you're looking for on your team. I have never been on Bauers, so there might be some bias there. (Craig Goldstein)
