|2020-04-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)||in a dynasty league where I had been rebuilding its probably time to start contending (2021 for sure). I have a ton of minor league depth and young offensive talent with a fair amount of interesting young SPs but should I start trading away draft picks and redundant younger pieces to sure up my pitching? Hiura, Bichette, Wander Franco, and Madrigal are my ss, 2b, mi, util and i have some heavy players behind them like marco Luciano, bobby witt, or even Erick pena who is getting some heat now? or with uncertainty of this season do i hold tight with these young studs because their value isn't likely to go anywhere and maybe try and buy cheaper older pitchers and piece it together until we have clarity and maybe wait for inseason category needs to show up in 2021 to sell them then, thanks for all the continuing chats!|

|I do not advise any team to trade for older assets at this time given the uncertainty regarding the season, and whether there will even be a season. Granted, I never say never, and, if the price of a high-end asset with a 3-5 year window of usefulness has depreciated to the point of a bargain, it is perfectly reasonable to move some excess youth to acquire such a player, even if there is no 2020 season. That said, I would likely hold prospects like Marco Luciano, Bobby Witt Jr., and Erick Pena at this time, absent a Godfather offer. They have not been given a chance to really pop, which I expect each to do as soon as pro ball resumes. (Jesse Roche)|
|2020-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)||I am looking to tank the following based on their dynasty ceilings (and their likelihood of reaching such ceiling): Witt jr...Luciano....abrams. Are any of them five tool guys?|

|Whether someone is a five-tool prospect has little bearing on fantasy (which is ironic since I am joining a podcast called the Five-Tool Fantasy Baseball podcast). Rather, I would like to think of prospects in terms of the standard five categories (BA/HR/R/RBI/SB).
Of those three prospects, I would rank them (on ceiling) as Marco Lucianco, Bobby Witt Jr., and CJ Abrams. In terms of likelihood to reach their ceiling: Witt Jr., Abrams, then Luciano. That said, Abrams is the only prospect who likely contributes to all five categories. I am not confident Witt will provide much more than average BA, and Luciano likely only has borderline speed at peak (I do not expect many SBs from him). All three are fantastic prospects with huge ceilings, though. (Jesse Roche)
