DateQuestionAnswer
2019-07-08 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can Austin Gomber come up to STL at some point in second half and be an effective SP for them?
(Craig from Chicago)
Sure, he was pretty close to that last year. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are Austin Dean and Ramon Laureano keepers? Full-time players in 2019? And what are chances that Austin Gomber remains a starter in 2019?
(Slappy from NC)
I imagine Laureano will be in Oakland's plans, but I can't predict with any confidence what the Marlins will do. Dean doesn't have any "L's" in his name, so that has to work out in his favor.

I think the Cardinals' rotation is probably too crowded for Gomber to see regular action, although their staff hasn't exactly been the beacon of health, so he'll get some starts. (Mark Barry)
2018-08-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Austin Gomber looks promising right? 4 on talent with some devil magic making him a 3?
(Kenny from Trampoline in back)
I think you're on the right track. I'm not in on him right now and a lot has to happen for him to be an SP3. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-07-30 23:00:00 (link to chat)Austin Gomber looked impressive. Can he be a 3?
(Kurt from New Lenox)
I will never, ever speak ill of a high-slot funky southpaw, but that's too rich for my blood. Valuable big-league staff piece though? Sure! (Wilson Karaman)
