2020-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Craig, Thanks for doing these! Two IL spots are all we have and with the Mazara news i had to move Jameson Taillon to my bench in a 14 team/27 man roster DYNASTY H2H points format. To give you an idea of league depth I was able to add Cespedes to fill my UTIL with Yordan also on IL. Would you drop Taillon to add bench depth with a bat like Aaron Hicks, Thames, Will Myers, Kiner-Falefa or add a healthy arm like Pomeranz Trevor Richards, Loaisiga Helsley or Voth? Hicks seems to be the most desirable commodity but is it worth adding him at the expense of Taillon? Roster C Mejia 1B Goldy 2B Muncy SS C Seager 3B Ramirez OF Acuna Pham Laureano UTI Cespedes Bench McMahon Kieboom Vaughn Brujan KRobInson,and Oneil Cruz IL Yordan,and Mazara SP Darvish Nola Glasnow Weaver Alcantara RP Burnes Pressly Lugo Bench SP Matz Cease Taillon Bench RP Kim Thanks much, D
(dylanrox from Quarantine Lakes)
Hey Dylan, my pleasure! I think I'd be okay moving on from Taillon in a league of this depth. I love the guy but he hasn't had a healthy/especially productive year in a long time and my bet is you can get him back if you need to. I don't love any of those bats so would probably opt for an arm (Helsley is interesting since Martinez is back in the rotation and he could beat out Kim for the closer role). (Craig Goldstein)
2020-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Eduardo Rodriguez and Trevor Richards over the next 3-4 years. What kind of pitcher do they develop into?
(caseyj15 from Medford, OR)
I think we have seen the best Rodriguez has to offer, which is quite good. 200+ IP with 200+ Ks is a rarity these days. He turns 27 just after OD and I would expect more of the same from him, though he did outperform his 4.46 DRA and prior knee issues are still a background concern for me. I know some value him more highly than I do, but his early NFBC ADP is reasonable (136) and he is a top-150 dynasty asset for me. As for Richards, it is hard to say exactly what Tampa Bay plans to do with its plethora of arms, especially since they heavily utilize the opener. Last year, he was used as the arm behind the opener akin to Ryan Yarbrough and Yonny Chirinos. That rotation is loaded, though, with Snell, Morton, and Glasnow as locks, and Yarbrough, Chirinos, McKay, and Richards as the chief competition for the 4/5 spots. Given Richards' so-so control and basically two-pitch arsenal (FB/CH), he probably profiles best in a middle relief role. (Jesse Roche)
2020-01-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)what is your take on the long range future of Trevor Richards of the TB Rays?
(caseyj15 from Medford,OR)
Generally speaking I don't love mid-tier strikeout rates paired with fly-ball profiles. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in my fourth year of a rebuild. My goal this year was to win the consolation bracket but I've had lots of injuries to my studs (Rodon, Shoemaker, Gregorius). If I need to rebuild my rebuild, do you think I'll be okay with my best trade chips being Hosmer, Grichuk, and Trevor Richards?
(Elton from Pacific Northwest)
Man is this depressing or what. Yeah I think if you need to rebuild, you won't be hurt by dealing those guys. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-03-18 16:00:00 (link to chat)Keeper league...who do you like between Merrill Kelly, Chase Anderson or Trevor Richards?
(sportsguy21792 from Madison, WI)
Richards, and it's not particularly close. He'll be a liability in wins, but he think he'll out-K the other two by a country mile. (Jon Hegglund)
2019-03-15 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you project to make the Marlins rotation?
(Flex F Fox from San Diego)
I don't like to admit it, but I kinda sorta really like Trevor Richards. He started to strike dudes out down the stretch and had a 3.57 DRA in 126 1/3 innings. Otherwise, I'm guessing Urena, Chen, Straily and then maybe Pablo Lopez until Caleb Smith comes back or Sandy Alcantara is ready? (Mark Barry)
2018-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)How strong is the marlins park factor for pitchers now? Any pitchers there you like in particular?
(Derek from Big Apple)
Checking...yeah, that's quite a pitcher's park. Decent argument it's the most extreme in the game. (San Francisco and Queens may have something to say about that.) I *guess* Trevor Richards is OK. I'm not a big fan of the Marlins pitchers tbh. They're not Orioles-quality cover-your-eyes but I don't see the nucleus of the next winning Miami team there. (Hey and sorry for the delayed answer; internet hiccup on my end) (Rob Mains)
