2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Jose Beerios and Dillon Overton have been hit hard in MLB. How do you like the odds of each to bounce back as a successful MLB starter?
(Festivus313 from Phoenix)
I have more confidence in Berrios as a fantasy asset, and it's apples and oranges, really. Berrios has SP2/3 upside, and pretty much everything in his developmental journey outside of the disastrous 11 starts he's made in the bigs suggests that. 22-year-olds with his talent are entitled to mulligans, though the ugly adjustment kicks his value down a peg or two in dynasty leagues, where a longer adjustment period probably has to be priced in now. Overton is one of my spirit animals as a real-life pitcher: a long, lanky lefty with a really solid change and fringe-average fastball. He's always going to be a guy that gives up his fair share of contact, but he harnesses his elasticity pretty well into a consistent delivery, and I think he can generate at least *some* fantasy value rounding out rotations in deeper leagues. FWIW I wrote him up (complete with Casey Fossum name drop) last season here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_pit.php?reportid=289

Keith Hudson's my other favorite of the early dub movement. His "Pick-A-Dub" was one of the first full-length dub LP's released - most dubs had just resided one-off on the backs of 45's and exclusive to the various sound systems running street and club parties. This cut, a breakdown of Horace Andy's "I'm Alright," is one of the biggest boss jams on my all-time list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwqF9mLJ75M (Wilson Karaman)
