2019-06-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)Ben, I need to create 3 or 4 roster spots in my MILB roster. (Dynasty, salary cap, H2H, 14 category). Are any of these guys worth holding: Casey Golden, Kevin Cron, Ty France, Mariel Bautista, Moises Gomez, Kelvin Gutierrez, Corey Ray, Kevin Smith, Scott Moss & Jean-Carlos Mejia? Thanks.
(slappy123 from Charlotte)
I would not be too concerned about dropping any of those guys, honestly. I'd probably be most inclined to keep Ray thanks to name value/proximity, but I'm not really big on him, either. Also, I know Golden is a Rockie but he's like 90 years old. (Ben Carsley)
2019-05-20 12:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 16-team dynasty, salary cap league, H2H 14 categories, with 50 milb rosters. I have grabbed a bunch of call-ups this year including Josh Fuentes, Bryan Reynolds, Ty France, Kelvin Gutierrez and Luis Rengifo.Any here I should sign to a rookie contract when he hits his rookie minimums? Christian Walker just hit his minimums and I inked him to a rookie deal. Will I regret it or is he for real? thanks
(slappy123 from Charlotte, NC)
Ah well. Rengifo is the best combination of talent/path to consistent playing time here. Walker I am not complete sold on but I always wait as long as I can on overaged breakout corner dudes. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)The top 10 current prospects Mike Rizzo has traded away are the ____th best top 10 in baseball. A list for you to choose from: Jesus Luzardo, Sheldon Neuse, Dane Dunning, Taylor Hearn, Blake Perkins, Kelvin Gutierrez, Yohanse Morel, Tyler Watson, McKenzie Mills, Pedro Avila, Max Schrock, and Travis Ott.
(Andrew from Boston)
It's a decent top three in Jesus Lizard, Dunning, Hearn, but it drops off pretty quickly. Bottom five, better than the Mariners and the Giants off the top of my head. Rizzo gets a bit underrated as a GM still I think. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
