2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jordan Zimmerman still a great fantasy starter?
(Ryan from DC)
I missed hard on Zimmermann here. Great is probably no longer in the vocabulary but I still think he can be good. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Redraft keeper league, 12 teams, h2h, $280 budget, 25 players. I'm pushing for playoffs and have Matt Harvey for $3 sitting on the DL (max inflation is $5). I could use some more pitching or outfield help, but I don't want to just hand him away. What types of players should I be targeting? I've been offered Homer Bailey for him, but have been hesitant to pull the trigger, despite my secret/not-secret love for Bailey.
(Steve from Los Angeles)
You can do better than Bailey. I'm still targeting a top 50 overall guy (prospects included). Springer, Yellich, Jordan Zimmerman if you're into it. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm trying to have patience with Homer Bailey but it is becoming tough. I recently acquired Julio Teheran and Jordan Zimmerman through trades hoping to use Bailey as trade bait to upgrade my 3B slot which Bogaerts currently occupies. What 3B would you target?...I'm in need of speed, runs and RBIs.
(cruisinkc from Wisco)
Depends what you need, but I'd try something in the Matt Carpenter / Kyle Seager class. Bailey has been maddening, but the skills are still there. If you're shutout of anyone doing anything worth a lick right, go straight for the buy-low for buy-low move and ask for Carlos Santana or Brett Lawrie (Paul Sporer)
2014-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)I know you aren't a fantasy expert. But other than Jordan Zimmerman, who would you target in every league? Paul makes it clear when he gushes over guys, you don't.
(Charles from Seattle)
I don''t claim to be a fantasy expert, but I've been playing fantasy for 15 years so I definitely have opinions. Guys I have been targeting based on perceived value and current ADP's:

Fernandez, Price, Verlander, Zimmermann, Gio, J. Shields, Teheran, CC, Samardzija, Kluber, S. Gray, J. Gray, Gausman

On the jukebox: Ennio Morricone, "The Desert" (Doug Thorburn)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Were you ever able to make sense of the at-large selection criteria, because I can't. Also, are there a couple prospects in Division III to keep an eye on this spring? I have a son playing D3 ball as a freshman this year, so I hope I can go to you as an expert analyst!
(Bill from Bozeman)
Yes, a D-III baseball question!!!

I played D-III ball myself and loved it. There are always some prospects in the D-III level (Jordan Zimmerman is the poster child for this). The difference in the level is the difference between the top and bottom. What most people don't realize is that the top level D-III teams could absolutely compete with the bottom level of D-I teams. There is some overlap there (though you won't find one D-I coach in the country who will admit that). Having coached at both levels, I can tell you it's absolutely true. What you'll find, however, is that the D-III level has some teams who just don't put the effort in to be real college baseball teams (things like a full-time staff, their own facility, etc.) where as that almost never happens at the D-I level.

The point is, there is always some real talent at the D-III level and there is some really good baseball being played there. I don't happen to know who they are right now, but we'll get to the bottom of that this year. (Jeff Moore)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rather have Matt Harvey or Jordan Zimmerman longterm in a keeper league?
(Joe from Seattle)
Harvey. (Bret Sayre)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)With SP being so deep this year, would you risk parting with a stud closer (Jason Motte) for a 2/3sp like Jordan Zimmerman?
(bateman19 from Boston, MA)
I would, yes. Motte is my #2 closer, but Zimm is a favorite. I think he's fantastic. (Paul Sporer)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Jordan Zimmerman and his upside. Is he a potential #1 starter (obviously not ahead of SS), but in terms of stats or more of a #2?
(DC Johnny from The Capital)
Zimmermann was a 3.5 WARP pitcher over 195 2/3 innings last year, so maintaining that level of performance over a slightly larger volume of work would have made him a number-one caliber pitcher. If he can handle that while staying healthy - or find a way to miss a few more bats - I think that he can quietly become a legitimate ace behind Strasburg. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-12-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Russell - what do you think Carlos Santana will do this year? Will he ever hit for better average or is he really just a .250/.360 type guy? Also, how about Jordan Zimmerman? Moving towards elite status or just a good #2 or #3 pitcher?
(mtgannon from Dublin, OH)
Santana's got something that works. Why mess with a .360 OBP? It's OK to have a low batting average. On Zimmerman, I believe I will defer to the idea that if you have to ask the question about a guy being an ace/elite, then the answer is no. Really nice pitcher. And not being elite is not an insult. (Russell Carleton)
2012-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you explain to me why Gio Gonzalez has an 18.5 VORP on the Nats audit page? I get why Strasburg is considered the team's "top offensive performer by VORP - he is hitting .350/.381/.650. But Gio's at .095/.091/.143 in 27 PAs. This can't just be a relative to other pitchers thing - Jordan Zimmerman is hitting .318/.348/.500 in 25 PAs and his VORP is only 10.4. What gives?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
I can't. I've never checked the audit page. Sorry about that. The only stats I care about are Martin Kove's measurements. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please suggest a micro brew to drink tonight while watching Jordan Zimmerman and the Nats cruise. Not in a hoppy mood.
(BD from DC)
Not sure if you can get Six Point (brewed in Brooklyn) where you are but their Sweet Action is a fantastic cream ale. Really enjoyed Harpoon's Dark the couple times I've had it in recent weeks. Find me on Untappd (jay_jaffe) for a ton of other recommendations - I tend towards dark beers, brown ales, porters and stouts there rather than IPAs. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-03-14 13:30:00 (link to chat)Fantasy question if you're so inclined: What's your view on closers? I have Kimbrel as a pretty cheap keeper (can keep 2 pitchers), but leaning towards setting him free in favor of Jordan Zimmerman and Madison Bumgarner who I have for next to nothing.
(Andy from Chicago)
I haven't played fantasy for a few years now, since I spend a dangerous amount of time on baseball as it is. But when I did play, I was always a "don't pay for saves" guy. Sometimes I tanked the category, and other times I monitored baseball news all day so I could grab the latest closer candidate from the waiver wire and piece together a staff with some saves. Either way, I wouldn't be the one drafting the typical high-priced closer. Kimbrel might be one worth keeping over a lot of starters, but probably not over Bumgarner. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any way for the Nationals to acquire Gio Gonzalez without dealing Jordan Zimmerman or Anthony Rendon?
(Mikell from Chicago)
They can't trade Rendon, at least not yet. (Sam Miller)
2009-03-19 15:00:00 (link to chat)Since the spring box scores are meaningless, can you give us a couple prospects that are impressing or surprising scouts so far?
(Rob from Alaska)
These are actually guys with good stats, but Nats top prospect Jordan Zimmerman has been earning some rave reviews, and I heard from a couple of guys about the Travis Snider home run off Ian Kennedy that left Legends Field -- it was supposedly an awe inspiring bomb. I don't want to give away too much, as I'm talk to a lot of scouts over the next few days about what's impressing them for some articles next week. Stay tuned. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Whats your thoughts on Jordan Zimmerman??
(Marcus from Fairfax)
Like it a lot, and he's off to a great start. Plus FB, plus BB, good command -- he could be a solid big league starter. That Potomac staff is pretty loaded, but one guy you may not have heard about is Jhonny Nunez, a lanky Dominican with 28 strikeouts against just two walks in 20.2 innings. 92-93 mph FB, low 80s SL with good break -- nice sleeper in that system. (Kevin Goldstein)
