|2020-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)||I'm emerging from a 3 year rebuild in a deep 15 team dynasty (roto 6x6 obp, slg, holds, 1 catcher, 20 minors spots per team) and have been offered George Kirby + 1st rounder in the FYP draft for Will Smith. Am I crazy not to take it? I've heard he's added velo this year, but what kind of upside do you see from kirby in SEA?|

|One catcher definitely makes Will Smith less valuable in dynasty, so I'd always listen to offers. I like Kirby a decent bit. He had the reputation of "strike-thrower" coming into the draft, and he hasn't really done anything to dispel that. He reminds me a little of Shane Bieber in that way - though I'm not saying he'll turn into Bieber by any stretch. I think Kirby could be a solid SP4, with a handful of SP3 seasons.
It sort of depends where the 1st rounder might land, but Kirby + a top 30ish prospect seems like a decent enough return, but I wonder if you might be able to do better by putting Smith on the block for everyone to bid. (Mark Barry)

|I checked in with Jeffrey because I am terrible at comps, and he suggested Jack Flaherty, potentially. (Craig Goldstein)|

|He's a polished college arm with a plus fastball and some projectable secondaries. Sometimes these guys turn into plus starters, sometimes they are like Braden Shipley. Time will tell. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
