DateQuestionAnswer
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a salary cap, dynasty league and only have roster spots for 2 catchers. Zunino coming off the IL soon, and i have Tucker Barnhart & Bryan McCann on one team, and Barnhart & Jason Castro on another. Who would you drop on these 2 teams? thanks
(Slappy from NC)
I'd probably drop Barnhart in the first league, just because having two drags on the batting average would be tough. I'd drop Castro in the second league because he's not going to get enough playing time to be valauble. Barnhart's BABIP should improve to the point that he's hovering around a .230-.250 batting average going forward. (J.P. Breen)
2018-02-28 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Tucker Barnhart a solid #2 in a 12 team two catcher league?
(Todd from Beavis and Butthead's Couch)
The bar for the second catcher in a two-catcher league is, "Is he a starter?" If yes, then you should be OK. (Eddy Almaguer)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Tucker Barnhart? How do you evaluate and predict a catchers defensive ability, game management, and all those other "intangibles" for a catcher. Maybe those skills don't directly relate to fantasy, but I think they indirectly affect your pitchers (especially the young ones---see Yadier Molina). I guess what I am asking is who is the next (either in the 2014 draft or in MiLB) Ron Karkovice, Gary Carter, Jim Sundberg, Roy Campanella and in my humble opinion, Yadier Molina?
(Eli from Boston)
This is probably a better question for Parks and the MiLB crew here. I'm not super familiar with Barnhart, as he's not a fantasy asset. I can tell you that the best defensive catching prospect right now is Austin Hedges, and Mr. Hedges is not a Top 100 fantasy name. (Ben Carsley)
