2019-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Craig, Trying to sort my keepers for a 24 team dynasty league while everyone else is watching football ha! Would you keep Jonathan Stiever over any of these Josh James,Brent Honeywell,Shane Baz, Luis Patino or Brad Keller? Probably not in a position to compete in 2020 but hopefully 2021 is the year. Thanks!
(boatman44 from Liverpool)
I would not keep Stiever over any of them, no. Maaaaybe Honeywell but it's really hard to say at this point. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)You check out Kane county a lot – who's your favorite "lottery ticket" prospect on the team?
(Frito from The Chi)
Victor Reyes and Brad Keller. Reyes can really hit and Keller is a big lottery ticket. Ideal size, a fastball that he can cut, run and sink. Secondaries need work, however and the command is a ways off. But on that team those are my two favorite lotto tickets. (Mauricio Rubio)
