DateQuestionAnswer
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)
