|2017-01-31 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Thanks for evening hours I work days so its nice to see you on at night quick question how world you rank these four pitcher if you were in a dynasty league.
which two would you keep.
Kevin Gausman, Blake Snell,
Kenta Maeda, Daniel Norris,|
(OB1 from Tampa)
|In that order, actually. Although I have Gausman, Snell, and Maeda all clustered together in the mid to late 40s. I'd go Gausman and Snell, with their youth as the tie-breaker. (Mark Barry)|
|2016-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Do you see Kenta Maeda as a top 60 pitcher or is he more in the 60-90 range? The incentive rich contract he signed should be a good thing right?|
(fightingmoose from Manitoba, Canada)
|A top 60 pitcher implies to me that he should be close to a No. 2 starter. That's asking a lot. I'd say he's closer to a three. The contract is nice for both parties, potentially, but I was surprised there wasn't more guaranteed cash. (Christopher Crawford)|
|2014-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Other than Kenta Maeda, are there any other NPBL players that could be posted in the off season that we should know about? |
(Mark83 from Jacksonville)
|Good question. I don't know. I usually take notice of the int'l players pretty late in the process, 90% of my work is tracking advanced pro pitchers on this continent and even that I can't do exhaustively by any stretch. (Harry Pavlidis)|
|2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)||International signings seem to have huge benefits: (Cespedes, Wei-Yin Chen, Darvish, Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu). Who are a couple of the next big players we should look out for?|
(Silverback38 from VA)
|There's not much coming out of Japan. Kenta Maeda is the next pitcher who will come over (likely for 2015), but he's a soft-tossing #4 profile. Cuba has some good hitters in Jose Fernandez and Yasmani Tomas, but who knows when or if they'll defect. (Bret Sayre)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
