2020-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)How are the Dodgers likely to handle Josiah Gray? Bring him up as a relief piece later this year? Keep him stretched out as a starter?
(Buff from Colorado)
The latter but then the former would be my best guess. Given the contracted season, I assume they will just have him log innings though, and I like him long term as a starter anyway. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2020-02-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey thanks for the chat. How would you rank pitchers S Howard, Lodolo, J Gray, E Cabrera, and B Marquez??
(sykklone from IA)
Spencer Howard, gap, Josiah Gray, gap, Nick Lodolo / Edward Cabrera / Brailyn Marquez (Jesse Roche)
2020-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 15 team dynasty league I took over for an owner who was sick of having a pretty solid team that couldn't compete with the top 3 super teams. How would you advise going about a rebuild? We have minor league rosters that can have up to 20 players but most only have half that. And only 2 drafts a year to procure prospects. Should I compete as best as possible knowing at best 4th place is my prize or start targeting Juan soto/Fernando tatis jr's and overpaying as well as kicking the tires for acquiring more draft picks?
(spotted cow from Rockford )
Rebuilding is tricky business in any league, especially one with super teams as there may be an extremely limited market for older, win-now pieces with most of the league also rebuilding. I took over a team in TDGX last offseason in a similar situation with 2 absolute super teams and most of the league rebuilding. I decided to push my competition window out by 2 years (2021) and moved win-now pieces for prospects/picks or young MLB pieces. My idea is to be flexible in such a rebuild and try to acquire talent and upgrade where you can, even if it means acquiring an old player if the price is right. For example, I acquired Joey Votto for Austin Hays then spun him for Tarik Skubal and Josiah Gray. Rebuilding takes WORK, but if you are an active trader and there is a market for it, you should begin by targeting a competition window in 2021 or later and move pieces with depreciating value in that time frame. (Jesse Roche)
2019-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Braxton Garrett, Josiah Gray, or Edward Cabrera?
(Buff from Colorado)
I'll take Cabrera. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Josiah Gray has gotten bombed in Hi A. Should I drop him for Ljay Newsome? I want guys who produce.
(Alex from Alaska)
Are you in a minor league fantasy league or something? Gray got bombed in one start out of three. Others haven't been great but they're more than fine for a guy in his first taste of the Cal League. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-06 23:45:00 (link to chat)Michael Grove or Josiah Gray? Who is a better long term SP prospect for the Dodgers?
(Freida from Paris)
Walker Buehler doin' *work* tonight, btw. Let's keep it blue for the west coast. I can't speak to Gray yet, though we should have eyes on him in Great Lakes shortly. Grove I wrote up here: https://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/article/48702/notes-from-the-field-april-23rd-2019/

I didn't love the delivery, but it was like his third game back from a long TJ recovery, so realistically it's going to be a bit before we learn much substantively about him. Showed a quality deuce and okay velo in context, so it's a start! (Wilson Karaman)
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Josiah Gray a top 100 prospect now?
(Kenny from London)
He has a better chance of being a top-100 prospect in terms of real-life baseball than he does for fantasy baseball. I'd say no for both real-life and fantasy at the moment, but that probably changes if he's still putting up these kinds of numbers in August. (J.P. Breen)
2019-04-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)How freaking good is Josiah Gray? What a steal for my beloved Dodgers!
(Sandra from Hollywood)
I like Josiah Gray, maybe a little too much. I think I stated I preferred him to Jeter Downs at the time of the deal. That might be stating things a little too much, that said I don't think trading Puig, Wood, and Kemp for Homer Bailey's contract and prospects on the tier of Gray or Downs can be qualified a steal in any sense. (Craig Goldstein)
