DateQuestionAnswer
2019-04-05 16:00:00 (link to chat)I am in a very deep league (12 team, 40 man rosters). I have Turner. Do you have any names I should consider given how deep the league is.
(Shawn from Washington)
Losing Turner sucks no matter what, and a replacement guy outside of the top 500 is a drop in production, but here goes. Difo makes sense because I'd assume he wasn't necessarily a roster pick given his ADP outside the top 500, he's filling in for Turner, and he has speed potential. Alen Hanson (ADP 499) may get a super utility look in Toronto now. I'm also a fan of Nick Ahmed, but his ADP was 417 on NFBC, so he's likely rostered. J.P. Crawford (546) in Seattle may show signs of life, and he has a bit of speed and power. (Kevin Jebens)
2018-07-30 23:00:00 (link to chat)How about this trade offer: Mike Trout and Andrelton Simmons to the Phillies for J.P. Crawford, Sixto Sanchez, JoJo Romero, Adam Haseley, Ranger Suarez and Adonis Medina.
(a.j. from dallas)
Mmmm throw in a nice bottle of chianti and a couple pulp mags of bigfoot erotica with that package going back to Anaheim and you might just be on to something. Short of that though, mmmmmm yeah no. (Wilson Karaman)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)I was surprised to see Austin Hays at 72 after his strong showing in his call-up last year. In comparison to another MLB-ready prospect (J.P. Crawford, 14th), doesn't that feel too low for Hays given his floor?
(Jake from FL)
I'd have Hays closer to 50 now, but the potential gold glove shortstop is always going to have the floor edge over the probable right fielder. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-11-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Whose bat do you think will ultimately be better, Franklin Barreto or J.P. Crawford?
(Cole Whittier from Pasadena, CA)
We have JPC ranked a good bit higher on the current draft of the 101. I can handwave gaps in ranking as insignificant at times (the vaunted "fudge factor"). but Crawford is definitely a shortstop, and a very good one at that. That matters. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best SS prospect in 3 years is? Top 3 is?
(Steve from Cali)
If you're asking me who the best SS prospect in baseball will be in three years, I have no idea. Some guy who doesn't play professional ball now, I'd guess.
By the second question if you're asking who the top 3 at the position will be, it's really, really hard to imagine Correa, Lindor, and Seager not remaining on top-they'll be only 25, 26, and 26, respectively! If one of them is going to get dislodged, I'd put my money on Amed Rosario ahead of J.P. Crawford (who is only three months younger than Correa). Shortstop is becoming a rich position. (Rob Mains)
2016-12-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)WHo has the better career: Swanson, Rosario, or Crawford?
(AJ from Queens)
I'd still bet on the raw tools of J.P. Crawford. (Still not a scout!) Rosario could be the worst of the three and still be pretty good ... I've always imagined him as more of an Alcides Escobar type, but if he has more power, then great. (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-09-07 19:00:00 (link to chat)So who do you take J.P. Crawford or Amed Rosario and do you have a guy who could really rise in prospect ranks next year?
(Mike from NY)
Crawford. I'll be a homer and take Thomas Szapucki for the second part. I guess this begins the Thomas Szapucki portion of the chat. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)In standard NL-only fantasy league with 8 keepers per team, would you drop Austin Meadows or J.P. Crawford to make room for Dylan Cozens?
(Kingpin from Grinnell, IA)
I don't play fantasy nowadays, so I can't even say "only if you are in my league." (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)J.P., I have an embarrassment of riches in my 20-team, 25-man roster 5x5 dynasty league. This was a rebuild year for me, and right now, my SS are Anderson, J.P. Crawford, Swanson, and Rogers. We can only keep 20 from year to year with no penalty, and the league has a penchant for valuing players weirdly (I got offered Mauricio Cabrera for Andrew Benintendi straight up). Do I use my stash to overpay for positions of need in a spread out league like this? Or should I just wait for these beautiful prospect flowers to bloom?
(Tim L from Sonoma Stompers HQ)
The easy cop-out answer is to gauge what kinda interest other owners in your league have in your players. Find which owners like your players more than you do and try to make something work. Waiting for prospects to "bloom" is tricky, especially when you *want* to move them. Aaron Blair was a hot trade piece prior to the season and now probably can't be given away. The same with Luis Severino. Prospects who haven't had a chance to fail yet always bring a higher return than guys who are known quantities. (J.P. Breen)
2016-06-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What type of player do you see Gleyber Torres being? Can he be a fantasy star?
(Chris from Chicago)
I don't see fantasy star, even playing a premium position. Think...think a poor man's J.P. Crawford. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-04-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Any minor leaguers who have seen their expected 2016 MLB production rise through the first three weeks, either due to high performance or changes in MLB opportunities?
(Sky from The Roc)
Jesse Winker is the guy who looks like he'll be up earlier based on early performance. Jorge Alfaro has been great, but I can't see the Phillies rushing him based on early performance. J.P. Crawford's walk rate is encouraging, and could push him up a little earlier if the Phils aren't worried about service time. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)You mentioned catchers being tough to gauge with playing time and development. We've also seen some SS/MI emerge offensively lately with LeMahuie, B Crawford, Cozart (til hurt), etc Who is set to emerge this year at MI/SS? ( owings, Jace Peterson, Wimer Flores, Heckyv, Mercer, etc)
(Bart Bennison from Here)
Peterson has a shot. So does Cory Spangenberg. The NL is so thin though that it's hard to guess. No one has mentioned him but I wouldn't be surprised to see J.P. Crawford come up in the second half. (Mike Gianella)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Franklin Barreto a top 10 prospect by midseason? Or is that above his ceiling?
( Billy B from Oakland)
Hey there Billy. That DePodesta thing in Cleveland is crazy right??? Um...Barreto is getting close to that already given the glut of elite prospects that reached the Majors last season. He's not near the level of someone like J.P. Crawford tho. I'd put him, Rodgers, Turner, Swanson, Anderson and Arcia ahead of him at the position just off the top of my head. Gleyber Torres is in the mix there too. (George Bissell)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who are this years Correa, Seager, and Buxton?
(Jared from Oklahoma)
I'll give you a couple prospects/young guys that step into the spotlight for me. A few established younger guys I think will bounce-back are Javier Baez, Jurickson Profar and Joey Gallo...MILB I'll go Nomar Mazara, J.P. Crawford and A.J. Reed as my big-three for hitters. (George Bissell)
2015-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best prospect you saw at the AFL?
(Aaron from San Diego )
Alex Reyes, and I'm not sure if it was close. J.P. Crawford was the best position player I saw, followed by Austin Meadows. It was kinda a weak year, but, those guys are legit. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming that all of the prospects that have been called up this year exhaust their prospect status, what would be your updated top 5 at the moment?
(AA from FL)
I don't have a list because I'm not a prospect guy. If I did make one I'd probably have some combination of Yoan Moncada, Lucas Giolito, Corey Seager, Miguel Sano, and J.P. Crawford. (R.J. Anderson)
2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Best reason to be optimistic about Maikel Franco this season?
(Brendan G from Bainbridge)
Be optimistic because Franco is pretty damn good and hits the ball pretty damn hard. If I were running the Phillies Id have this guy pencilled in as the starting 3B for the next 5 years in my plans. He's going to hit plenty though his slash lines won't fit exactly in the boxes we think they should. I think he could spend more time in the minors and it won't hurt him, but I'd almost prefer to see him face big leaguers and let him see exactly what he needs to tighten up to succeed at the next level. As for his glove, I see him as a fringe average defender in the "bigger 3B with a strong arm who isn't particularly mobile but has a good first move" mold. Franco comes up short of a star, but between him and J.P. Crawford I'd consider the future left side of my infield set and worry about the rest of the ballclub. (Al Skorupa)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Name an prospect from the Futures game that was not in the spotlight who could end up being an All Star?
(Kyle from DC)
I was watching the game on my phone in an airport (isn't technology wonderful?) so I'm not super aware of who was getting all of the spotlight, but I like Kevin Plawecki, and J.P. Crawford as guys who didn't seem to be getting a ton of attention. If you haven't noticed, I like guys with good strikeout to walk ratios. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you give 3 prospects right now that you think will make it to top 100 prospects lists by this time next year? Players making big jumps?
(Luis from Nowhere near Brooklyn)
Michael Feliz, J.P. Crawford, and Lewis Thorpe, to name a few. Just guessing. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)Can J.P. Crawford become a star and does he have a chance to become a top 25-50 prospect after this year?
(Mike from Utica, NY)
I don't think he becomes a star. Good prospect that can stick up the middle, so that's going to push his value, especially if he can swing it. But I don't see a top tier type. Maybe I'm low on him. (Jason Parks)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on J.P. Crawford? The next Jimmy Rollins?
(Sagar from Chicago)
New chat rule. No making comps on guys who haven't played a full professional season yet to guys with a borderline Hall of Fame case. (Jeff Moore)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think is the 3rd best hitter from the draft? (I'm guessing you have Bryant and Frazier 1,2)
(Jake from Toledo)
Right now, it's a close race between Tim Anderson, J.P. Crawford and Dominic Smith. (Bret Sayre)
