BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)Cory, thanks for the chat. In a deep two catcher league. Keeping Mauer, but have to go cheap at #2 catcher. Any suggestions for end game catchers? Thinking about guys in that Mesoraco, Federowicz, Clevenger, etc. tier.
(LoyalRoyal from Spring Break)
Wellington Castillo of the Cubs. Should play a lot, has power, and is in his age-26 season so his time is now. I'm also big on Rob Brantly of the Marlins but his value upside is lower since he lacks any single big skill, from a fantasy standpoint. (Cory Schwartz)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can Saltalamacchia raise his OBP this year? Would you rather have Rob Brantley?
(Guy from TX)
It's hard to see a big leap in Jarrod Saltalamacchia's OBP given his incredibly high strikeout percentages. I'd still take Salty over Rob Brantly. We know what we'll get with Salty. Brantly - who I do like long-term - seems like a complete unknown. (Mike Gianella)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Rob Brantly have both the bat and the necessary tools of ignorance to make it as an everyday major league catcher?
(Paul from DC)
Brantly is an average defensive catcher with above-average plate skills and an advanced approach. He had that in college and has cleaned up some of the defensive weaknesses to get where he is in Miami. He's capable of starting 110-120 games a year and helping the Marlins immediately. For the record, I don't believe there are many catchers that should start more than 120 or so games behind the dish. Brantly's bat could warrant some time at DH in road interleague play. (Jason A. Churchill)
