DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Tucker Barnhart? How do you evaluate and predict a catchers defensive ability, game management, and all those other "intangibles" for a catcher. Maybe those skills don't directly relate to fantasy, but I think they indirectly affect your pitchers (especially the young ones---see Yadier Molina). I guess what I am asking is who is the next (either in the 2014 draft or in MiLB) Ron Karkovice, Gary Carter, Jim Sundberg, Roy Campanella and in my humble opinion, Yadier Molina?
(Eli from Boston)
This is probably a better question for Parks and the MiLB crew here. I'm not super familiar with Barnhart, as he's not a fantasy asset. I can tell you that the best defensive catching prospect right now is Austin Hedges, and Mr. Hedges is not a Top 100 fantasy name. (Ben Carsley)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Torre will rest Russell Martin more, or is there a chance his legs will fall off on September 16th? I am worried that his late season collapse will happen again if the Dodgers don't learn how to take care of him.
(Eddy from Valerie's closet)
I think Torre's experience in getting reliably good work from Jorge Posada over his career (not to mention his own past days with the tools of ignorance) will save Martin from anything like a Jim Sundberg-style wear-down. (Christina Kahrl)
