DateQuestionAnswer
2019-09-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Of Isaac Paredes, Daz Cameron, and Willi Castro who do you think is the most likely to be an above average regular?
(Champdo from Sarasota )
I'm guessing Cameron ends up highest on the Tigers list, but I'm not super in on any of the three. Diaz and Paredes were both OFP 55s coming into the season, but I'm less bullish on Paredes, and Daz has gone through another of his "intermittently forgot how to hit" periods. I like Castro personally, but he's more of a good utility type. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
