|2020-08-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Dynasty League: 25 man MiLB squad.
Competing team: wants (now) arms for title run. 2 offers in place.
Bieber for Franco
Jesus Lizard and May for Kelenic and Barco.
Either/Both fair? Which side you got?|
(mjquart from Milwaukee)
|So the offers are:
1. Shane Bieber for Wander Franco
2. Jesus Luzardo and Dustin May for Jarred Kelenic and Hunter Barco (I assume)
I prefer Bieber to Franco, though that likely changes by this time next year.
I prefer Kelenic by a hair to Luzardo/May. (Jesse Roche)
|2020-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)||I'm emerging from a 3 year rebuild in a deep 15 team dynasty (roto 6x6 obp, slg, holds, 1 catcher, 20 minors spots per team) and have been offered George Kirby + 1st rounder in the FYP draft for Will Smith. Am I crazy not to take it? I've heard he's added velo this year, but what kind of upside do you see from kirby in SEA?|
(Capital.frock from HongKong)
|One catcher definitely makes Will Smith less valuable in dynasty, so I'd always listen to offers. I like Kirby a decent bit. He had the reputation of "strike-thrower" coming into the draft, and he hasn't really done anything to dispel that. He reminds me a little of Shane Bieber in that way - though I'm not saying he'll turn into Bieber by any stretch. I think Kirby could be a solid SP4, with a handful of SP3 seasons.
It sort of depends where the 1st rounder might land, but Kirby + a top 30ish prospect seems like a decent enough return, but I wonder if you might be able to do better by putting Smith on the block for everyone to bid. (Mark Barry)
|2019-10-04 14:15:00 (link to chat)||What's your take on Joe Ryan? Shane Bieber-esque? Also, what's the ceiling on the Giants' Seth Corry? Thx!|
(Sam from Brentwood)
|The slider would have to jump for Ryan like it did for Bieber, but he isn't dissimilar from prospect Shane Bieber, so like 3/4 starter. As for Corry he's a lefty with a good curveball so he's got a real shot. It's not a traditional starter's profile in some ways, but we are also moving past that in baseball, so he could be a very good 150 inning bulk guy for someone. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2019-02-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)||In a dynasty league, how do you rank Alex Wood, Shane Bieber, Josh James, and Yu Darvish? Likely going to be shopping one or all of these guys on the off chance I can get some solid draft picks in our very deep minor-leaguer draft coming up.|
(Alex from Austin)
|Wood, James, Darvish, Bieber. Darvish could sit in any of these spots; it's extremely difficult to rank him rn. (Mike Gianella)|
|2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)||Shane Bieber. Is it possible in today's game to have elite command and control with average to slightly above average stuff and be any more than a 3/4 innings eater? |
(uncasf1 from raleigh NC)
|Is it possible? Sure. I think we've seen Kyle Hendricks do it pretty successfully for a few years there, though you might quibble with calling his stuff "slightly-above-average." In this situations, the pinpoint command (and Hendricks' tunneling) helps the stuff play up, so to speak. But the margin for error is really thin, and that's why with a lot of these types who are always around the plate with solid-but-not-great stuff, they struggle at higher levels. Major league hitters are really damn good. Some of them might need to follow the Keuchel outline and rarely throw strikes but always be around the edges of the zone. It's a tough life, though. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2018-04-27 12:00:00 (link to chat)||Shane Bieber's streak of no walks continues through 26 IP. Where would you rank his command on the scouting scale and could he be a #2 ceiling guy?|
(Michael from Portland, OR)
|It's plus-plus command, but command isn't an out pitch, and it's hard to be a #2 without an out pitch. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2018-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)||once adrian beltre shows he is healthy for a few weeks would he be able to top 101 type prospect like Stephen Gonsalves?|
(a.j. from las vegas)
|So, the way I'm reading this is that you're asking if Beltre could return a Top 101-type player in a pre-deadline trade once the Rangers decide to start stripping the team down? Honestly, I kind of doubt it. Most of the teams that I'd guess will be in contention for playoff spots will be well-positioned at the hot corner, not to mention the fact that Manny Machado is likely to be on the trade market as well. Combine that with Beltre's injury woes recently and the fact that he's a really important part of Texas' clubhouse, and I'm not certain he'd pull back enough value to make Texas willing to deal him. (And that's even without Joey Gallo's reticence to return to third base.)
The one team where *maybe* I could see a fit would be Cleveland, and I'm not sure they'd give up a player of Shane Bieber's caliber in that rental dea. (Bryan Grosnick)
