DateQuestionAnswer
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who are a couple of catcher sleepers to take late in 5x5 keeper league?
(LittleRon from WV)
Assuming a 15-team, one catcher mixer I like Wilson Ramos (people are suddenly shying away from him) and Robinson Chirinos. In a two catcher format, Geovany Soto and Jarrod Saltalamacchia are backups who could push their way into enough time to be better than the bottom end guys who are playing every day. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Whats up with Wilson Ramos? He's batting .203 over the last 30 days, he has 9 homers but 2 of them came off position players in the same game. He has a really high ground ball rate too. I picked up Realmuto this week and started him over Ramos. Should I ride the hot hand with Realmuto, or stick with Ramos? 5x5 NL only, 8 teams, I'm in 7th place, so I need some upside.
(ganz1080 from CT)
I haven't really seen a lot of Nationals games, and the ones I have seen (against the Mets) he hasn't looked discernibly worse than he usually does. I wonder if fatigue is playing a factor since he almost always has some injury where he misses a few games and that hasn't happened this year. For the upside, I think you have to stick with Ramos and hope that the bat comes around. (Mike Gianella)
2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty rotisserie: which side do you like? Xander Bogaerts and Wilson Ramos or Carlos Gonzalez, Clint Frazier, and Rick Porcello?
(El Ashaban from Queens)
I'll take side two, but I don't want to set a precedent for answering fantasy questions. We have an awesome staff who is more than happy to take those. Use the bat signal. A lot. Seriously, send them 10 questions a day, they'll love it. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hi Ben! I need to cut three of the following from my 16 team 5x5 dynasty team; Cody Asche, John Jaso, Ike Davis, Dayan Viciedo, Will Venable, Gerardo Parra. Who gets the axe if it you made the call? Keep in mind Asche is my only insurance for Wright at 3B and Jaso is Wilson Ramos’ backup. many thanks!
(Gravybill from Paradise)
Viciedo, Venable, Asche. If you're super worried about Wright, cut Parra instead. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Gattis or Wilson Ramos 12 team h2h?
(Heather from CA)
I still want Ramos. If he gets hurt, there are always options on the wire in a 12-team league. (Bret Sayre)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I can keep Pablo Sandoval or Wilson Ramos on my fantasy team. Who do you think will have the better season?
(cracker73 from Florida)
I want to say Ramos but the health aspect scares me. So I guess Sandoval. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)With no defined role and the likelihood that he might be a middle reliever, how do you value Carlos Martinez in an NL keeper league? Which two would you keep between him at $5, Eric Young Jr ($10) and Wilson Ramos ($13)?
(Scott from LA)
I like Martinez a lot. He's a rare player where I go with the skills over the role. I have him at $10 in my home league NL and am keeping him no matter what happens this spring. That being said, it's kind of tough to keep him over Ramos if you have to choose one. Ramos should start and even if he only gets another 300 at bats or so he's a catcher and should earn that. Young is also uncertain on his role and might not get the opportunity to steal 40+ bases again. I'd go Ramos, since I think you should be able to get Martinez back at that price because he's not closing or starting. (Mike Gianella)
2013-12-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)With only a handful of catching stars and many of the current crop looking at position changes in the not too distant future, which of the young catchers do you see stepping up to the elite? Do you think Wilson Ramos is in that conversation?
(Scott from LA)
Ramos is a good guess. Probably the best guess, actually. I don't think Welington Castillo will become elite, but I think people slept on how good he was last season. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I usually wait until after the 15th round to take a catcher. Please give me a great post-15th round guy to focus on this year behind the plate.
(chiefsalsa from Utah)
If I take a catcher late in a draft, I'm almost always going for a high power guy unless someone slips or I particularly like someone else. Very few will give you a good BA anyway, especially that late, that I'll take the cheap power and compensate for the average elsewhere. In this vein, I might take Arencibia, Ramon Hernandez, Olivo, or Doumit. Wilson Ramos doesn't necessarily fit this mold, but I do like him and could consider him late as well. (Derek Carty)
2011-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, have you had a chance to analyze Wilson Ramos behind the dish? Narratives aside, if he is as good as he has looked, he should be a serious NL ROY candidate as a lg average offensive player with plus defense.
(JD Sussman from Long Island)
I have not done any video analysis of Ramos. The numbers in my study (which you may have seen if you looked at the Google spreadsheet that I linked) show Ramos to be among the best catchers at getting extra strikes, but in less than a full season of duty, fwiw. (Mike Fast)
2011-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)How can the Twins afford Mauer, but the Brewers can't afford Fielder? Wasn't Wrigley North supposed to bring them a bigger revenue stream?
(Paul from Chicago)
It did, but it didn't move them into a bigger market. The Twin Cities still dwarf Milwaukee in terms of potential cable and ad revenue.

That said, I think punting Fielder is a tactical decision as much as a depth-of-pockets one: The Brewers know he's going to be looking for Ryan Howard-type money, and don't think it's worth busting their payroll to keep a very good player at a position where it's easy enough to find average production. The Twins broke the bank for Mauer, but without it they were looking at Wilson Ramos, who isn't close to the same player - nor close to the same attendance draw, which is important when you're trying to sell high-priced tickets to a brand-new stadium. (Neil deMause)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)There has been some criticism launched at Mike Rizzo regarding the Nats bench (Hairston, Nix, Stairs...), in that it is a bunch of useless retreads rather than prospects. His response is that a team can't be all youth, and the vets have a job "to teach these good young prospect players how to be Major Leaguers" Is this all bunk?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
Does "prospects" in this instance equal Roger Bernadina, 27 years old? Wilson Ramos isn't good enough? Nix, Stairs, and Hairston have their uses, while Alex Cora does have a tremendous reputation in the game, so maybe there is something to having him there even if he can't contribute much on the field. I think calling the group useless is unfair. (Steven Goldman)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Is Wilson Ramos a case where the overhyped have become underrated?
(Nick from NJ)
No. Overhyped. Plus defender who isn't going to hit much for me. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-08-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)Higher ceiling: Derrick Norris or Wilson Ramos?
(John from houston)
I figured you might've gotten lost on your way to a Kevin Goldstein chat, so I relayed your question to KG. His answer: "Norris can hit, but not really catch, while Ramos can REALLY catch, but probably not hit much." I'm not sure whether that answers your question, but if you think catching skills can be taught more easily than hitting skills, maybe Norris has the higher ceiling. On the other hand, KG held down the shift key longer while talking about Ramos, so maybe that's your answer. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)Since I believe the Nats will sign Adam Dunn, I am more interested in the other 2 trades Mike Rizzo made: 1. You didn't seem terribly impressed with the Wilson Ramos trade, although you didn't pan it. Has Ramos taken a big hit to his reputation this year? 2. Folks seem a lot more impressed with Cristian Guzman than we in DC were, although he is a good enough guy. I know the Nats didn't get much for him, but I was surprised they got even 2 AA pitchers. Why the sudden love folks have for Guzman?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
I think Ramos took a hit because he's basically a batting average-dependent producer, but at his age, there's still some room for growth, and I guess I'm more depressed over what this meant for Flores' situation. It was a pretty decent flip, in that Ramos isn't going to be the next Wil Nieves, he could start and not be the worst regular catcher in baseball.

As for Guzman, LASIK may have helped his ability to hit singles more frequently, but it didn't seem to do him any favors in the field. He's an adequate middle infielder with no power, patience, or speed, so getting worked up over him is sort of silly. He's a decent veteran placeholder, but getting him is more of an insurance move for the Rangers than cause for jubilation. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wilson Ramos gets traded to ___ and see's playing time by ____?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
Ooh, really tough question. I don't have a clear idea where he'll end up. He's undoubtedly blocked, but probably not quite ready for the show yet. I'd say that he'll see the big leagues some time in late 2011 with a shot at a big league job out of camp in 2012. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Wilson Ramos? If you were the Twins would you trade him, and when does he have the highest value? Does time in AAA enhance his value or just add risk that he gets injured again or gets exposed?
(Cris E from St Paul, MN)
He's very good. Now, as to when to maximize his value on the trade market, that's a more complex question. Does time in AAA enhance his value? Some would even ask if a year in the big leagues as Mauer's backup would enhance his value. It's a tough call, but he's probably the most blocked good prospect in the minors. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-03-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mauer's been locked up, there's a decent hitting backup mostly ready to go (Morales) and a generic glove guy or two on the shelf for emergencies. What should the Twins do with excellent catching prospect Wilson Ramos?
(Cris E from St Paul, MN)
What else is there to say? He becomes trade bait. Just gotta hope they don't trade him in a panic if the bullpen falls apart for a second-rate reliever. (Paging Neal Huntington...) (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wouldn't it make sense for the Twins to deal blocked prospects like Wilson Ramos or Revere/Hicks for Heath Bell? Since Bell would be under control for 2011, they could then flip him for OTHER prospects which fill a need? A win/win, no? Bell covers for Nathan for a year, then turns into prospects who can fill an immediate need (i.e third base). Thoughts?
(tommybones from brooklyn)
It sounds as though the Padres are asking for an arm, two legs and a lung for Bell right now, and I think it's unconscionable to think of trading away five-star prospect like Revere - and more - for a closer. The Twins would be better off dealing for one of the guys who draws the short straw in Toronto if they feel like they need to go outside the organization ASAP. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-09-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)A couple non-BP guys have said that Wilson Ramos is the Twins' best prospect. Do you agree?
(Jake from KC)
No, no I don't. (Kevin Goldstein)
