DateQuestionAnswer
2018-07-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Max Muncy for real? How would you value him in a dynasty league?
(Lou from Tacoma)
He's mostly for real. He's obviously on the hot streak of his life and that won't continue, but you could say that about most players hitting at his current level. I think his defense will end up being the binding constraint on him. The Dodgers don't love playing him at third and like him at second even less. He's probably best at 1B defensively, which puts more pressure on his bat. (Scooter Hotz)
2018-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you view Max Muncy in a dynasty format? Is he a poor man's Josh Donaldson?
(Bryson from MD)
That's a good comp in a lot of ways, though I'd expect his career arc to be even more narrow. In fact, if I had him under control for several more seasons, I'd look to deal him soon. The landscape is full of guys who came to the majors at a later age and had quick success and then a quick flame out. (Scott Delp)
2018-07-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)That's why I don't gamble.
(John C from Forked River)
If I could explain Max Muncy, I'd have written an article on it by now. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)Is Max Muncy this year's Chris Taylor?
(I Have a Problem from Yes)
No, I don't think so. I appreciate that Muncy went home and got back to basics, and think he's a useful player/depth type piece. Taylor was a star last year though, and I don't think Muncy has that type of ceiling. (Craig Goldstein)
