BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2019-05-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Hunter Dozier a fantasy star?
(Kenneth from Lenny'sville)
Man, it sure looks like it. I don't remember where I heard it, but it feels reminiscent of the Tommy Pham breakout where all of a sudden you just have a dude with elite plate skills that finally gets a chance. I don't think Dozier leads the league in hitting at season's end, but he's real. (Mark Barry)
2019-03-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy Pham yes or Tommy Pham no?
(Worm from Down)
Fortunately, he won't hear a ton of boos when he first appears at home because..well...he did have a point. He fits the Rays' approach and should be a big part of their offense in 2019. I'll be looking to add him to my teams at the right price. (Scott Delp)
2018-12-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy Pham was simply gangbusters last September. Do you see his performance carrying into 2019 to the point where we will eventually call the Rays' future stadium The House That Pham Built?
(Cornelius Blacksmith from Long Ago)
As if there's any chance that they'd keep a player that long. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am feeling quite emotional (in a good way) about Tommy Pham's prospects for this upcoming season. Please let me know your prediction about his performance for 2018. Thank you so much!
(Jason Weiner from Sharon (MA))
He's not without risk (see 2nd half BABIP, and GB tilt), but there are few guys who can go 20/20 right now, and he's one of them. Just don't buy expecting a full 2017 repeat in BA. Right now he's higher risk than many similar bats simply because we need to see him do it again. (Kevin Jebens)
2018-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)What type of season can we expect from Tommy Pham? Can he come close to repeating 2017 production?
(Chad from OKC)
great swing and contact rates, works really hard on his approach, most of his limits were due to injury. I think he'll come close to doing what he did in 2017 and I'll be fairly aggressive on him in most of my drafts. (Mike Gianella)
