BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2019-03-14 15:00:00 (link to chat)Standard 6x5 h2h w/ strikeouts and OBP on the offensive side, keep 4, no costs or limits.. do i trade Lindor, Conforto and Brad Hand for Stanton , Wheeler and Segura?.. Thinking Lindor may be slow out of the gate, Wheeler continues his breakout and Stanton shows improvement in his 2nd year in the Bronx.. am I missing the mark here?
(The Old Professor from The Dugout in Heaven)
I blacked out at getting Stanton so I say go for it. Also Segura will hit like crazy in Philly. (Nathan Bishop)
2017-07-19 17:00:00 (link to chat)Is Yangervis Solarte a good fit with the Red Sox?
(Trixie from San Diego)
I feel like I have to preface every 3B target question with the statement "Well, he'd be better than what they have", because literally anything would be better. A mannequin with a bat duct taped to one of the hands would be better.

Solarte would be a decent option and his contract is very affordable, but the length of that contract can get in the way of their roster building for next year, since Devers is expected to take over sometime next year. Solarte seems like a guy who would be put in a deal with Brad Hand, and the Red Sox aren't going to fork over any big time prospects for those two. Probably. (Brett Cowett)
2016-05-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)We've been (mildly) surprised by some Saves leaders in the first third of the season - Jeanmar Gomez, David Robertson among them. Who are your picks for surprising save contributions for the next few months?
(Yes Cheese from Cheese Nation)
Brad Hand if/when Fernando Rodney implodes and Jumbo Diaz, just because that's a fun name to write. (Mike Gianella)
2011-06-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Ben What do you think will happen to Jordan Schafer once Nate McLouth returns from the DL? Also, what do you think of Brad Hand going forward? Thanks.
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
Once McLouth returns, Schafer will either be cast into the fires of Mount Doom or relegated to glorified fourth-outfielder status. The latter is more likely.

I'm not particularly excited about Hand this season (he may have been promoted prematurely) but at least now that he's arrived, Marlins fans can stop complaining about having no hand--no hand at all!

Yes, I answered this question so I could link to a Seinfeld clip. (Ben Lindbergh)
