DateQuestionAnswer
2019-05-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm thinking of dealing Dustin May for Spencer Turnbull. Thoughts? When will May actually be a fantasy starter of note after the growing pains/dodgers screw with him? 2022?
(Tony from Alsip)
I think you're turning a ton of upside into a back-end starter who can miss bats but has struggled to stay healthy or consistent. May should be up next year, I think. Possibly relief this year. I wouldn't do this deal. (Craig Goldstein)

(Tom from Marquette)
I will not debate this. (Christopher Crawford)
