DateQuestionAnswer
2019-10-04 14:15:00 (link to chat)With Alex Thomas kristian Robinson Corbin Carroll and jeferson the dbacks future outfield looks crowded . How do you see it shaking out?
(Cactus jack from Phoenix)
Maaaan this is very much a 2022 problem I think. Robinson has the most upside here, but I love me some Alek Thomas. The swing is very aesthetically pleasing. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-09-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Look into a crystal ball: Who is ranked higher going into the 2021 season? Corbin Carroll, Alek Thomas, Brennen Davis or Jeremiah Jackson?
(Nicole from OR)
Thomas, but it's a fairly low confidence interval. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Alek Thomas: hitting machine or more of a hitting alien, sent from another planet to destroy baseballs?
(Leon from Los Angeles)
All I can think of now is Mark McGwire distracting everyone from MLB's data-gathering on that Simpsons episode by hitting a huge dinger. (Darius Austin)
2019-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Corbin Carroll and Alek Thomas? They're very similar, so could you compare and contrast them? Thank you!
(CuccumberParty from Phoenix)
Maybe I'm crazy but aside from being in Arizona and being short...I'm not sure I see them as super similar. Thomas has a ton of feel for the game and is an absolute physical specimen (his father is the White Sox Director of Conditioning). Carroll is a pure hitter. I like both a lot (and generally really liked Arizona's draft last year and this year). (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)Alek Thomas is a hitting machine. Yes or hell yes?
(Joseph from Baltimore)
Love the frame, love the swing. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-07-01 12:00:00 (link to chat)so how about this Alek Thomas guy? Folks???
(treemeister from NC)
I expect he will be on our risers list as part of the Midseason 50 supplemental content next week. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-06-05 21:00:00 (link to chat)Alek Thomas: Top __ fantasy prospect.
(MJ from St Paul)
40. He's been extremely impressive so far in 2019, but I loved him coming out of the draft as well. (Mr. President Bret Sayre)
2019-06-07 12:00:00 (link to chat)Only have a spot for one in a dynasty. Contention window 2-3 years out. George Valera, Alek Thomas, Dylan Carlson, Jazz Chisholm, Keibert Ruiz, Daulton Varsho, Nolan Jones, Trevor Larnach, Xavier Edwards, Shane Baz, Michel Baez, Or Seth Beer. Also, I wish I had 10 more roster spots
(KJ from Providence)
I'd probably go with Carlson or Larnach. Keibert is the best pure prospect here, but also might not be a huge fantasy factor. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-06-07 12:00:00 (link to chat)How much has Alek Thomas increased his status this season? Is his apparent lack of hard contact concerning?
(Alex from Austin)
He's another Midseason 50 long list guy, and the underlying power numbers aren't bad at all for a 19 year old in the Midwest League. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-05-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please give me 5 A-Ball prospects to target in my dynasty league, not named Wander.
(Yankee from Charlotte )
Shervyen Newton, Geraldo Perdomo, D'Shawn Knowles, Alek Thomas, Antoni Flores (I went with A-Ball or lower, hope that's alright) (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it still a bit early to jump in on Alex Thomas in dynasty leagues? I’m startling to get concerned about both the Luis Garcia’s on my minors.
(Chansen8895 from San jose)
Alek Thomas? I've been pushing him since last June, so no. Re: the Garcias - it's two months and these are babies. One of them is 19 and in Double-A. Try to be less reactionary. (Craig Goldstein)
