DateQuestionAnswer
2019-10-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have, the fairly-solid certainty of mid-rotation Zac Gallen or Brendan McKay?
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
I've always been a bit low on McKay, and I'll continue that trend here. Gallen for me. I think he's a stud. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you prefer the stuff of Jesus Luzardo over Brendan McKay? How about Dustin May vs. McKay?
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
I prefer both on stuff over McKay. McKay's value is his command and control of his repertoire. I probably take both pitchers over McKay in general but I've always been pretty low on him. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any pitchers in the high minors that you’re interested to see debut or make their second or third major league starts after a call-up? A la Mitch Keller, Brock Burke, etc.
(ayzzya from Texas League)
This year? Keller, for sure, and I'm still excited to see Brendan McKay continue to adjust to the big leagues. I'm not sure they'll debut this year, but I'm particularly excited to see guys like Graterol, Mize, and Ian Anderson. (JP Breen)
2019-06-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Starting to worry about German Marquez? Your article last week sold me on him, but now I'm concerned. Dealt Brendan McKay for him and now I regret it.
(Len from Sunshine)
Not really, although there's always legit concern about anybody that makes home starts in Coors.

Just for fun: Marquez 2018 through 6/30 - 17 starts, 5.14 ERA, 93 k/35 bb in 91 innings; Marquez 2019 through 6/28 - 18 starts, 4.29 ERA, 113 k/26 bb in 115 1/3 innings (Mark Barry)
2019-02-06 21:00:00 (link to chat)If Brendan McKay were a 1 way player, either or, would that have improved his ranking? Not asking for me... asking for a friend.
(Sean M. from Wlodarski Park, IL)
At this point we basically consider McKay a one-way player (pitcher). We don't see him as a viable bat. That's why he was prospect "102 for us -- he's a nice mid-rotation prospect but that's about it for dynasty - BC (Dynasty 101 Chat w/ Ben Carsley and Bret Sayre)
