2020-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much do you like the following young arms? Ian Anderson, Randy Dobnak, Logan Webb, and Tony Gonsolin. Is there a drop off after Anderson? or Gonsolin? or much at all?
(ironcityguys from daBurgh)
A lot, indifferent, nah, and a fair amount. Yes, I think there's a significant drop off between Anderson and Gonsolin, and then a bigger on from Gonsolin to Dobnak and Webb. (Craig Goldstein)
2020-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your personal cheeseballs that you find yourself taking as fliers in fantasy leagues this year? Hitters and pitchers. Thanks!

2020-03-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)How is BPro the only prospecting outlet talking about Randy Dobnak? He’s a great story and seems to have had a ton of success so far. I know you don’t normally comment on other site’s lists but what’s causing him to be so slept on?
(We Demand More Hegelbon from Casino Night Zone)
I didn't know we really were talking about him that much. Definitely a great story and I definitely read other outlets info in an effort to be as informed as possible. I don't know that he's really slept on though? He's a major leaguer but probably not a ton more than that and Minnesota did well to add enough arms to not have to rely on him. (Craig Goldstein)
2020-01-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Last two keepers in a midsized 5x5 h2h dynasty league - pick from Jordan Lyles, Carlos Rodon, Alex Young, Randy Dobnak, Austin Voth. Or should I dump all the pitchers and keep Seth Beer and Leody Taveras? I'm finding myself unnaturally attracted to Dobnak....
(James from Toledo)
I would dump them all and keep Beer and Taveras. Of the arms, we are highest on Rodon, but I also like Lyles a good bit. I drafted Dobnak in P365XDL this offseason at 936th overall so that tells you what the industry thinks of him. If he wins a starting job, his leash will be very short in Minnesota and his high-contact ground-ball approach does not normally provide a ton of fantasy value, especially if he is getting hit. Of course, if you want a high-end Uber driver, he is your man! (Jesse Roche)
