DateQuestionAnswer
2015-05-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)In my Yahoo league I am building for next year and thereafter. My roster is Russell Martin, Kendrys Morales, Josh Harrison, Brock Holt, Brett Gardner, Dexter Fowler, Gregory Polanco, Coco Crisp, Carlos Ruiz, Travis Snider, Kyle (and Corey) Seager, Jason Heyward, Carlos Correa, Desmond Jennings, Javier Baez, Matt Harvey, Carlos Martinez, Jimmy Nelson, Edinson Volquez, Jonathan Paplebon, Chris Heston, Noah Syndergaard, Lucas Giolito, Julio Urias, Jose Berrios, Matt Cain and Sean Doolittle. 8 keepers allowed. Comments? Suggestions?
(TimLandry from Montreal Quebec Canada)
Keep Matt Harvey eight times. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-02-16 11:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think will make the biggest improvement with their new team (traded or FA pickup) as compared to their most recent team? seems like you like lawrie?
(Dan from Bloomington)
I think Lawrie is probably a little underrated because he's a post-hype guy. I'm not sold on him being equal to or better than Donaldson though.

Myers is up there. He'd probably be my pick, actually. Kendrys Morales is an obvious one. Jason Grilli isn't going to be the biggest gainer, but I liked what I saw from him in Anaheim. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Kenny's Vargas and his prospects after his productive start?
(Silverback38 from VA)
I like him a lot. I could see him in his prime becoming what Kendrys Morales was before his season-ending injury. (Mike Gianella)
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Kennys Vargas' hot start and future as the Twins DH/1B?
(Ed from Minnesota)
I was asked about him earlier. His peak might be Kendrys Morales before the Morales season-ending injury. (Mike Gianella)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Word is the Yankees are interested in Kendrys Morales. This is an ideal landing spot for him, no?
(SK from Boston)
From a fantasy POV, Yankees and Rangers would both be great. Keep him away from Seattle. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I picked up Rickie weeks due to plethora of injuries on my team... what's the chance that he sticks and becomes fantasy relevant again? Also is it time to stash Kendrys Morales? Thanks keep up the awesome work.
(Julio from San Anto)
I think there's a chance, but his best bet is getting flipped to someone who needs a full-time 2B. I've always liked Weeks so his fall from grace last year was a bummer (Paul Sporer)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where is Kendrys Morales going to end up and when will he sign?
(Jim from Seattle)
Man, I don't know. It's gonna take an injury at this point to clear things up. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)12 team keeper H2H categories 6x6 (.ops & holds) I can extend K Morales for last year @ $9, Or should I drop him and overbid on Adrian Gonzales (min 2 year contract)who will be available. I have the most $$ ($100) out of $260. Only have 8 roster spots to fill out of 35 man rosters. I will have to overbid due to a few owners having $$ but few Elite players to bid on. I already plan to go hard on Abreu to fill CI spot. I'm punting average and going for power and speed with likes of Carter, Villar, ECab, Cespedez, Reddick, Braun.
(ares1800jr from San Antonio)
Hey ares:

Glad you're somewhere warm.

I never think you should "overbid" on anyone, but I hear what you're saying. Given that terrible choice, you probably want to overbid on Adrian Gonzalez...at least if you have to make the decision right now. Kendrys Morales is a fine player in your format but my concern would be that he signs somewhere where he isn't a full time player and lands in some sort of platoon or quasi-regular role. I'm not sure what your trading culture is like, but I'd try to push for a trade rather than go too far out on a limb for Gonzalez. (Mike Gianella)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you see Kendrys Morales ending up?
(Frank from Seattle)
Given that the Mariners made a qualifying offer, the most likely destination for Kendry Morales is back to Seattle, since I can't see a team like the Pirates or the Rays surrendering a first round pick for a talent like Morales. The 10 teams that have protected picks either don't seem to need a first baseman or haven't expressed a lot of interest in Morales. I thought the Twins might have made sense before they announced they were moving Joe Mauer to first base. My guess is Seattle, although this could be one of those situations where the qualifying offer makes Morales' market tepid and he signs late with a team where an injury crops up and makes Morales a contingency plan.

2013-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do we see any major trades before spring training? #Bourjos? #Stanton? #Upton? #Kubel?
(Kelvin from Brooklyn)
With the Angels having dealt Kendrys Morales, I don't think we'll see them move Bourjos. Stanton's displeasure with the Marlins has been made clear, but I don't see him being dealt before the season. However, I do think the Diamondbacks will clear up their outfield logjam. I'm not sure whether it will be Kubel or Upton that is dealt, but I can't see Parra reduced to a fourth outfielder role again, nor can I see Adam Eaton stuck in that role. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Better DH fit for Rays, Kendrys Morales or Lance Berkman and why?
(jlarsen from chicago)
Morales because there is more in the tank, but his cost will be higher so given their organization, Berkman is a more likely candidate. (Paul Sporer)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Geoff, What do you think the Mariners' infield looks like for most of the season?
(captnamerca from Dunedin)
Howdy Captain. I'm assuming it'll be similar to last year's, with Kendrys Morales displacing Justin Smoak at first base. Nick Franklin could make things interesting at second if Dustin Ackley doesn't get his act together. (Geoff Young)
2011-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know there doesnt seem to be any clear updates as of late, but i was curious about whether or not there are rumblings in the industry about whether or not Kendrys Morales' leg injury has progressed any further or if this freak injury looks like it will really derail his career and make ANA/LAA contenders in the 1B market this offseason.
(Keith7971 from ECSU)
You didn't like Mark Trumbo? I realize the OBP issue prevents him from being a star, but he has some value, no? (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Now that Kendrys Morales is out for the year (and his career is a little less sunny), do you think the Halos would/could package Trumbo and some other cost-controlled pieces to the Brewers for Fielder? Do you think the Brewers hold onto Fielder regardless of the standings for 2011?
(dianagramr from NYC)
They could, but I don't see why they would. Fielder will be testing the waters anyway, and the Angels are just as likely to sign him in the offseason coming from Milwaukee or some other team than they are if he was already in Los Angeles of Anaheim.

The Brewers will hang on to Fielder as long as they possibly can. If there's any chance at the playoffs, I can't see them trading him. Too many chips in the pot. They'll have to be really out of it (or get a fantastic offer) to put him on the block. (Larry Granillo)
2010-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy, thanks for chatting. What's the funnier Tracy Morgan SNL sketch, Brian Fellows or Astronaut Jones? Because neither of those is as funny as my second and third round picks of Grady Sizemore and Kendry Morales earlier this season.
(bctowns from Chicago, IL)
Really important question. I think the ceiling on Fellows was always higher, but Astronaut Jones was more consistent.

Also, my condolences. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-03-24 11:00:00 (link to chat)I thought it was weak that in the latest SI article about Kendry Morales they quoted Baseball Prospectus as saying something along the lines that Morales will only be a bench player. I don't have the magizine in front of me so I don't know who wrote it but in last years edition of BP it clearly stated Morales will be a good sleeper. When something like this happens do you guys shoot off an email to the writer and straighten him out? Maybe I was reading too much into it.
(ziti from sarasota)
I think it was an older quote, which is a different sort of thing ("the breakout was unexpected"). The work that Nate and Christina did on Cuban translations suggested caution about Morales, which turned out to be warranted for quite some time. That he broke out last year is a testament to his pure skills and dedication, I think, rather than his projection at the time he signed. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)thoughts on Joey Votto this year? he seems to be all over the place in everyone's rankings.
(sawred14 from Forked River, NJ)
Vottosaurus Rex is great, I just have to figure out how great when compared to other first basemen. 1B is seriously stacked--Kendry Morales was just a little above-average last year despite the great line he put up. I like Votto more than most though--dude is what people thought/think Justin Morneau is. (Marc Normandin)
2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Has anyone credible seen Chapman hit 99 mph as some reports are saying? i can just see him coming to the U.S.and working 91-92 mph. The next Cuban defector plays up to 60% of his hype level will be the first.
(mafrth77 from Boston)
Kendry Morales and his .924 OPS say hello, as does Yunel Escobar. To answer your quesiton, Chapman has pitched in many international tourneys in front of many credible folks. He is not a myth. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-03-19 15:00:00 (link to chat)is all the luster off of former prospect Alex Gordon? What happened there? Also what should we expect from Kendry Morales, 15-20 hrs?
(moonkyu from sf)
I still have faith in Gordon continuing to improve, and while we're at it, gimme Kendry Morales in the my sleeper pool. I think PECOTA is WAY low on him. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-12-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)Now that the Yanks have Tex, is there anywhere for Manny to go but the Dodgers?
(Ken from Los Angeles, CA)
There's certainly an element of logic to it, because I don't really see him getting anything resembling his wished-for compensation almost anywhere else. It might be funny to see the Angels get in on him, though, with Kendry Morales at first and Vladi and Manny alternating between their respective corners and the DH slot, Juan Rivera bouncing between right and left depending on which one's DHing... that's be fun, if nothing else. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-12-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)If tex goes to Boston, what do the Angels do?
(gpbarn9 from Lex)
I think they give Kendry Morales another shot, and pocket the money for a better time. They probably like Aybar too much to chasae Furcal, and they don't need another corner OF. I suppose they could sign Dunn for 1B. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)OK one more, since you brought it up. He's hurt at the moment with a quad strain, but what do you think Kendry Morales can do at the big league level immediately, and in the future?
(deadmonkeyhead from CA)
Outhit Garret Anderson and Gary Matthews Jr. (Joe Sheehan)
