BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm staring at using Alex Escobar or Ian Desmond every day at SS in an OBP/SLG redraft league. Maintain the course with two of my favorite preseason SS sleepers, or upgrade quickly?
(Will from Mactaquac)
I would upgrade if you can, but SS is an easy position to punt as well. I have Cesar Izturis in an AL-only league and don't even feel bad about it. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any realistic chance of Eric Duncan ever reaching his potential? And same question for Alex Escobar?
(Eric from NJ)
No. Move on. (Kevin Goldstein)
