2019-03-18 16:00:00 (link to chat)Jon - Thanks for the chat - I picked up a couple of decent starters on waivers last season (my team stunk, I had the flexibility to go fishing). As a result, I own German Maquez, Eric Lauer, and Zach Efflin. Obviously, Marquez is a stud. Do you think either of the other 2 is worth keeping at $10 in an NL only keeper league? Thx!
(nbaumgarten0243 from Philly)
Depends on your keeper inflation, but $10 seems steep for those fringy arms. (Jon Hegglund)
2016-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm at the Met museum of art in nyc. Who has the most creative front office in terms of the 2016 draft? Did anyone stand out by taking an innovative approach?
(Bseballkid from Nyc)
Its hard to say who had the most innovative - as most teams do that same thing with their pools to get creative with who they can get. I really liked seeing teams like the Red Sox, Yankees, and Giants just taking the best talent on the board (Groome, Rutherford, Reynolds) and dealing with the rest later. Bold strategy because of the budget pools, but also played out as well as the teams could have hoped. Giants getting Reynolds and Krook after not having a first round pick was great, not that Krook looked good this year but he has the history. I also liked the Padres, with a huge influx of different types. Cal Quantrill has looked awesome post TJS, Eric Lauer is as safe a bet as anyone in the draft to be a starter at the MLB level, and Hudson Potts (formerly Sanchez) was a interesting pick who the Padres loved, and came underslot. A draft I am interested in seeing how it turns out is the Cubs as well. They didn't have a pick until the third round, and with the scouting power they have I am excited to see how having all of their efforts focused on mid round talents ends up. (Midwest League Wrap Up)
2016-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Eric Lauer? Was he a big name out of High School? How do college guys at non major conference schools stand out and show they're worth a compensation pick?
(Thadeous from Ft Wayne)
I have a scouting report on Eric Lauer here http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_pit.php?reportid=460 and a match up with Keegan Akin here - http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=29436

He wasn't a "big name" but the Blue Jays did draft him in the 17th round in 2013. He went to Kent State to work with pitching coach Mike Birkbeck and it obviously worked out. For a pitcher in the MAC which is a D1 conference but obviously not the SEC, it is more difficult to gain traction but when you are a lefty throwing in the 90s, with multiple secondary offerings and an easy delivery scouts will find you. Lauer had lots of attention going into the season as *the guy* in the MAC after a successful sophomore year. (Midwest League Wrap Up)
