2019-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Craig, Trying to sort my keepers for a 24 team dynasty league while everyone else is watching football ha! Would you keep Jonathan Stiever over any of these Josh James,Brent Honeywell,Shane Baz, Luis Patino or Brad Keller? Probably not in a position to compete in 2020 but hopefully 2021 is the year. Thanks!
(boatman44 from Liverpool)
I would not keep Stiever over any of them, no. Maaaaybe Honeywell but it's really hard to say at this point. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank the following for dynasty purposes: Shane Baz, Jhoan Duran, Jordan Balazovic, Tarik Skubal, Edward Cabrera
(Ron from Wisconsin)
Skubal, Baz, Duran, Balazovic (Mark Barry)
2019-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank these young pitchers: Ryan Weathers, Cole Winn, Ethan Hankins, Shane Baz? Are any of them "must-adds" in 10-team dynasty leagues at this point in time?
(Chris from DC)
Baz, Hankins, Winn, Weather for me. They're far enough away you could convince me not to bother with any arms that far off in a ten teamer but if I'm picking one it is Baz. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-06-07 12:00:00 (link to chat)Only have a spot for one in a dynasty. Contention window 2-3 years out. George Valera, Alek Thomas, Dylan Carlson, Jazz Chisholm, Keibert Ruiz, Daulton Varsho, Nolan Jones, Trevor Larnach, Xavier Edwards, Shane Baz, Michel Baez, Or Seth Beer. Also, I wish I had 10 more roster spots
(KJ from Providence)
I'd probably go with Carlson or Larnach. Keibert is the best pure prospect here, but also might not be a huge fantasy factor. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Shane Baz only had 1 k in his debut. Should I be concerned?
(Jason from Crystal Lake)
You should not. (Jeffrey Paternostro)

(Jason from Crystal Lake)
No (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-04-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is Shane Baz's upside? Could he be another Mitch Keller in a few years?
(Jake from Seattle)
I live in Saratoga Springs. There's a thoroughbred race track here--effectively, Belmont moves up here for the month of August. I don't go anymore, but I used to try to handicap the races. You can infer from the fact that I don't go anymore how well I did. I could read the Racing Form and make some inferences, but I never bet on juvenile races. Two-year-olds have basically no track record, other than bloodline and trainer and jockey, and I wouldn't pretend to know anything about that.

Shane Baz is, basically, a two-year-old. I mean, he's 18, not two, and he's a person, not a horse. But I'm not going to pretend to infer anything from < 25 innings of rookie ball. Our prospects guys like him, not as much as Keller. But I'd totally defer to them about everything Baz-related. (Rob Mains)
2018-04-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are Cole Tucker and Lolo Sanchez's upside?
(Jimbo from Utah)
I think Tucker's a good fit for the Pirates. Mercer's going to walk. Tucker, I think, will provide more bat and less glove than Mercer. But given the way the game's evolving--more balls in the air, more shifting of infielders (or at least not *less* shifting), the importance of a really strong glove at short is diminishing. Think Seager and Correa--not that they're slouches, but they're not phenomenal with the glove. They don't have to be! I think Tucker will be a net upgrade.

Sanchez is 18, so my Shane Baz racehorse analogy applies. He's only 18, but so far he's shown good speed and a good glove but nothing exceptional with the bat. Upside would be Starling Marte but I'm guessing he falls short offensively, which will limit him. But he's only 18! He can change! (Rob Mains)
