BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is Drew Ward a 1st division starter for you at 3b or do you have him as a 2nd div 1b type?
(DocRoe from DC)
I'm a little light on him. It sounds like he's more of a first basemen long term, and I don't know if he has the bat to be a regular there. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2015-02-26 20:00:00 (link to chat)Deep league: Drew Ward or J.D. Davis?
(Wesley from Albany)
I like Davis as a very deep sleeper. (Bret Sayre)
2014-09-10 12:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Nationals one of the more underrated farm systems? Besides having the best pitcher in the minors, they seem to have a lot of toolsy, high-upside type of guys. And they have Reynaldo Lopez.
(Shawn from Cubicle)
I think they are, partially because I was able to watch Hagerstown all season.

3 impact arms in Gioltio, Lopez, Cole
Nick Pivetta and Jake Johansen have ability
Rafael Bautista, Wilmer Difo, Drew Ward

It's a nice group, and that was basically only Hagerstown. Pedro Severino is a solid defense-first C for Potomac, and they still have a few guys like Brian Goodwin, Matt Skole, etc that could potentially provide impact. (Tucker Blair)
