DateQuestionAnswer
2019-03-08 16:00:00 (link to chat)Not a fantasy question per se, but why haven't Cleveland sent Bradley and Chang to Colorado, for the services of Raimel Tapia. He is clearly not loved or wanted among the rocky mountains, and they do like big boppers, surely Cleveland would be a whole lot better in the outfield, with him in it, Who says no?
(boatman44 from Liverpool)
I have no problem with Cleveland adding an OF, though I actually don't mind Leonys Martin and Jake Bauers. Greg Allen may get playing time too, which is good for us fantasy managers. Then you have Zimmer and Naquin who can't stay healthy. Luplow is a long-term investment but doesn't help the Indians as much in 2019. Tapia could make sense. But I don't think Colorado wants Bobby Bradley, a bat-first player who struck out a ton at Triple-A. And then you throwin in Yu-Cheng Chang, another strikeout king with poor defense. Granted that Tapia is just a fourth outfielder, but they'll probably want players with more than one tool. (Kevin Jebens)
2017-03-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)What prospects are you looking to buy a bunch of pre-season stocks in this year so this time next year their stock will be drastically higher so you can say to everyone "Look I got in on the ground floor on ___"?
(Igor from At a Bar)
Ooohhh I like this question. I think Acuna or Cody Bellinger was probably the answer last season. I think Anderson Tejeda could shoot up prospect lists pretty quickly, but there's been some buzz on him already. Non-top 101 guys, I'd go Lucas Erceg, Greg Allen, or Luis Alexander Basabe. (Mark Barry)
2016-12-01 19:00:00 (link to chat)What's the deal with Greg Allen? Any possibility he is called up this year? Possible starting outfielder long term?
(Mrgrutgers from NJ)
Allen strikes me as a solid player who doesn't do any one thing spectacularly well but will find a role as an outfielder somewhere because of his all around ability. I see him up in 2018, though he's old enough that he could find a way. I'll say 50/50 chance he's a starter at some point. (Mike Gianella)
2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Bradley Zimmer was listed by Chris Crawford as one of the 10 biggest prospect fallers in 2016. He essentially lamented his inability to hit lefties, and his increased strikeout rate. The Tribe isn't short on young outfielders. Do you still think Zimmer has a better shot as a major league regular than Naquin, Yandy Diaz, Mike Papi and Greg Allen or do any of those guys now excite you more?
(Truganini from CO)
Naquin has done it in the majors, and that means a lot for a guy who has always had the tools but was never putting it together at the same time in the minors. I might take Naquin, but that would be a tough call and require some thought.

Zimmer's still well ahead of the other three. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Greg Allen, Franchy Cordero and Ramon Laureano all carried over their production after reaching AA this season. LaMonte Wade, Magneuris Sierra and Cedric Mullins hope to do the same in 2017. Rank these by likelihood of becoming an above-average everyday player, and by which will have the most exciting peak season (wearing rose-colored glasses).
(Oliver from Boston)
I was really impressed with Allen in a couple looks this year. I don't think he's an impact fantasy player or anything, but he has great feel to use his speed on the bases and his approach is excellent, to where he should be able to get on base, steals some bags, and score some runs. Franchy...I'm really surprised at his outburst at AA, frankly. He's got a ton of athleticism and quick-twitch to him, but both the swing and approach were real suspect in High-A. Never bet against athletes, but I put a 30 on his hit tool for a reason. And Laureano's a solid player who improved legitimately during his stint at Lancaster, which is not always easy to do. He's not as elite a speedster (or power guy) as the numbers this year would suggest, but there's a second-division profile there. I'd go Allen, Laureano, Cordero out of those guys. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-04-19 12:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Greg Allen? SSS so far this season but is his performance being aided by his age given the league he's in or would you consider his prospect stock to be rising?
(Jay from Ohio)
I've been impressed in my three games viewing him, especially last night in Woodbridge (I happened to catch that). I think he's a 'stock rising' prospect in an Indians system that has a lot of quality guys like that--a testament to a great and forward-minded group in the front office and in the field there for the Indians. The tools might not play loud enough for a genuine everyday profile, but Allen knows his game and his strengths and plays to them well; someone throwing a bench/defensively-oriented glove/speed outfielder grade on him wouldn't raise my eyebrow.
