|2019-10-30 16:00:00 (link to chat)||Who do the Cubs add to the rotation this offseason? Ayyyyyy!|
(The Fonz from Milwaukee)
|I don't know that it's going to be extensive and I don't think they'll play at the top of the market? How does Kyle Gibson and, uh, Michael Wacha sound to you? I do think Ryu would be a really interesting play with his ability to keep the ball in the park. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2019-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Wanted to mention that BPs chats are so much more informative than those 'graphing' chats.
This year, in a 525 player keeper league, many decent SPs weren't picked up until a month into the year....like Odorizzi, Bassitt, Davies, and of course John Means. I nabbed one of these four. In 2020, I'd like to draft players like this late, rather than get 25% of them in late April. Who might I target in March 2020?|
(Vic from Baltimore)
|Appreciate the kind words but also want to say that we're not so much enemies with other sites. We're thrilled you read us and appreciate us, but I'd personally be thrilled if it was on terms that didn't knock others in the process.
I talked to our excellent fantasy team because this is a tough question. We basically came to the conclusion that this is a really rough question to tackle this far out. Those guys are ones borne mostly of opportunity that isn't so much clear in September of the preceding year. The names thrown around were: Kyle Gibson, Alex Wood, Keegin Akin, maybe James Marvel? All the guys you named arrived at where they're at pretty differently, so there's not one way to answer it. Best to ask in Feb/March next year I'd think. (Craig Goldstein)
|2019-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Is Griffin Canning just Kyle Gibson 2.0? He generates a ton of whiffs on multiple pitches, but it seems to be a side effect of pitching outside the zone too often. |
(Dylan from Providence)
|This seems overly kind to Gibson's ability to miss bats? Canning already generates a better K% than Gibson ever has. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2019-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Kyle Gibson has a 13.4% SwgStk and 23.7% K-rate, 35.5% Zone rate. Canning has a 14.0% SwgStk, 25.3% K-rate, 38.4% Zone rate. Most other pitchers with Zone% that low are changeup artists(Castillo,Vargas,Davies,E-Rod)|
(Dylan from Providence)
|Good to know - but Gibson has also evolved a lot over the years, and I don't think his current iteration of stuff is quite as good as Canning's is right now. That zone percentage is something to look into in terms of if he's living on the edge (and failing) or just not controlling the ball well enough. (Craig Goldstein)|
|2018-04-05 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Am I the only one who looks at the Twin's rotation and sees no possible way of it leading them to the playoffs? Kyle Gibson, the inevitable 2nd half meltdown of Lance Lynn, terrible depth, etc......|
(Mr. Fister from Arlington)
|I didn't pick them for the Wild Card, although there isn't a dominant team beyond the top four in the AL. I could see the Twins or another team winning 83-85 and sneaking in to the Wild Card game. (Mike Gianella)|
|2017-08-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Please explain your theory about why Kyle Gibson looks a lot more promising lately, just in case your mean editor doesn't let you write an entire article about it.|
(AaronGleeman from Minnesota)
|(I'm totally gonna slip one by him, but in the meantime:)
Gibson moved over on the rubber recently, and made a concomitant change in his arm slot. He's throwing out of his more natural slot, lower, with better posture. He can do that and still stay on his line to the plate because of the move on the rubber. He's also throwing his four-seamer more often, and with significantly improved spin, and all of that makes him a pitcher worth reevaluating under these new conditions--for however long they last. (Matthew Trueblood)
|2016-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Thanks for the chat, Michael. What are the breakout (or breakdown!!) chances for pitchers such as Martin Perez, Kevin Gausman, Daniel Norris, James Paxton, Michael Pineda, Joe Kelly, Kyle Gibson, etc. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. |
(DJ from Dallas )
|Already talked about Gausman. I think Paxton might get squeezed out of a surprisingly deep Mariners rotation. Pineda's already good, Gibson kind of is what he is at this point, as is Kelly, who in a just world would've moved to the bullpen full-time two years ago.
That leaves Perez, whom I've always been down on compared to what appears to be the consensus, and Norris, whom I like to bounce back if only because he's got an open rotation spot in Detroit, to say nothing of it being unlikely that he receives a surprise cancer diagnosis this year. (Michael Baumann)
|2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)||How would you draft these guys and who are the real Aces in the group if any?
Kevin Gausman Eduardo Rodriguez Aaron Sanchez, Daniel Norris, Kyle Gibson,|
(OB1KENOBI from NYC)
|None of these guys are aces in my opinion, but I'd go Norris, Rodriguez, Gausman, Sanchez, Gibson. (Christopher Crawford)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
