DateQuestionAnswer
2017-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are there a couple of players we should try to steal in fantasy leagues now? And who main events WrestleMania 2018?
(NatsGM from DC)
Two good questions. First, I recently snatched up Yulieski Gurriel in one of the BP fantasy leagues. Maybe I'm just trying to earn brownie points with Bret Sayre, but I also believe he's going to still provide some nice value this season. I know there are still a ton of question marks with Buxton, but you could probably get him as cheap as you ever will right now. Also, it's possible you could get someone to sell pretty low on Jose Bautista right now. As for Wrestlemania...I think we're looking at Lesnar vs. Reigns as a main event. (Eric Roseberry)
2017-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's your hitting and pitching deep sleepers for 2017 for deeper leagues - say 16 team or so - and why?
(Anthony from Lunch)
Whats for lunch? Seriously, I'm starving. Um...I'll give you one each. Robert Gsellman & Jharel Cotton on the pitching side. I keep coming back to Steve Pearce as a guy who is a lock to outperform where he's getting drafted. Same goes for Yulieski Gurriel & Asdrubal Cabrera. (George Bissell)
2015-06-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the next big international hitting prospects we should be looking out for?
(Basil from Mid-Tex)
I mean, Yulieski Gourriel (3B - Cuba) is the obvious bat that comes to mind, but he's 30 years old and no guarantee that he'll come to the United States to play. This is far from my specialty, but we keep hearing a ton about Eddy Julio Martinez, Lucius Fox, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (J.P. Breen)
