DateQuestionAnswer
2019-08-30 16:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Scooter Gennett will land somewhere, whether a minor league deal for the rest of this year or next year? How likely do you think it is that his poor performance this year was just the direct result of his groin injury? We know how leg injuries can sometimes prevent hitters from doing well, and he seemed like the real deal as a solid regular over the next couple of years (at least from the fantasy perspective). In one of my leagues, I have him kept through the 2021 season.
(cliffmayo from DC)
Yeah, I think you're onto something here. I don't think his career is over by any stretch, but I also don't see him coming back to his 2017-18 self, either. He'll get plenty of major-league ABs next year for somebody, I'm sure. (Jon Hegglund)
2017-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Anthony Rendon the most criminally underrated player in today's game? He's an absolute beast that nobody discusses.
(Matt from Chicago)
Remember when he had that huge three-homer game in April or May and people wrote about whether he was the most unlikely player ever to do such a thing? First of all, Scooter Gennett came along like a week later and made that look silly. Secondly, it was really weird to begin with. Rendon is a star. When healthy, a top-five overall third baseman. (Maybe. Probably.) (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-09-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Collin, Has this been a breakout season for Suarez and Gennett of the Reds or a career year for both? What do you expect of them in 2018?
(Cal Guy from Cal)
Scooter Gennett is my favorite #TheBallIsJuiced example of 2017. But seriously, both guys have taken a giant step forward this year. I don't know if the power is as legit as it seems for either, but they both have shown the ability and skillsets to be major league contributors. (Collin Whitchurch)
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any of the young Brewers waiting for their opportunity in AAA like Michael Reed, Orlando Arcia and Zach Davies making an impact soon?
(Scott from LA)
Reed and Davies might get their shots before Arcia, but Arcia is a much better bet to stick. Reed might get a shot before Brett Phillips, but he's unlikely to perform well enough to prevent Phillips from supplanting him. Nobody in the Brewers' rotation is going to block Davies if he performs well, but he's unlikely to have sustained success in MLB with his stuff. Arcia is coming up at some point this summer, and when he does, he's probably there for good. Even if Villar plays like an All Star, which would be an upset, the Brewers will promote a meeting-expectations Arcia and play him at SS, moving Villar to 2B or 3B and shunting Scooter Gennett or Aaron Hill to the bench or the waiver wire. There's no denying Arcia, barring injury. (Scooter Hotz)
2015-06-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)When is it time for Milwaukee to recall Scooter Gennett from AAA? Or have they given up completely on him?
(cyrthogg from Madison)
I don't think it's a pressing need to call up Gennett. The organization is letting him develop a rhythm in Colorado Springs' thin air, something he wasn't able to do in Milwaukee this year. The ship has sailed on him being an everyday option for the Brewers; however, I still think he can be handle the strong side of the platoon well enough to be a major leaguer. If his defense were league-average, I'd believe that even more strongly. Too much track record exists to think that he's suddenly forgotten how to hit, though. It will be there. (J.P. Breen)
2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)Who has the best socks in the MLB? Seeing Sonny Gray's right now and they are niiiiiice. But Scooter Gennett's this afternoon were on point as well. Thoughts?
(Dylan from CT)
I *LOVE* this question. Gray and Gennett are REALLY strong plays. I love Chris Archer's sock game too. I consulted with style-expert Woj, and he said Archer too. I should mention Brad Miller for his stirrup game, too. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)A manager in my 15 team deep roster dynasty wants my Scooter Gennett. I have 2b depth with Walker, Baez and Odor, so I'm willing to deal. He offered deGrom and a throw in for Scooter. I countered with Scooter, Nathan and Hawkins for deGrom and Hahn. He countered with deGrom and Hahn for Scooter , Feliz and $100 FAAB. My counter back was the same deal and he throws in Francisco Mejia. If he says no should I just take his offer and stop pushing my luck? I'm in 7th and out of it this season/playing for next year.
(phin82 from milwaukee)
I'm not really in love with that deal for you, but I don't see how Mejia should be a deal breaker. I'm not sure what your FAAB rules are but maybe try zero or less FAAB in a counter if he pushes back. (Mike Gianella)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Is Tommy LaStella interesting in an OBP 12 team league?
(Captain Ron from The Carribbean)
No dear god stop with the LaStella questions! Does Scooter Gennett thrill you? Do you go crazy for DJ LeMahiue? The best thing LaStella has going for him is that he's not Dan Uggla. (Ben Carsley)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you rank these first-year 2b in order of who will have the best career? Kolten Wong, Scooter Gennett, Nick Franklin, Chris Owings, Wilmer Flores, Jonathan Schoop, Marcus Semien, Grant Green. Thank you.
(The Kernel from Pasadena)
Wong, Owings, Franklin, Schoop, Gennett, Semien, Flores, Green. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Sam, I'm in a dynasty league and was wondering your thoughts on a couple of 2B, Scooter Gennett & Derek Dietrich.
(Ernie from Knoxville,TN)
From: bit.ly/16wYMP2 So what's the story behind your nickname?
I was big fan of "Muppet Babies" (the animated cartoon series that originally ran from 1984 to 1991) when I was little, and (Scooter) was my favorite character. I was in the car with my mom one day and she had no idea about the Scooter thing and she had me put on my seatbelt and I'd click it off. She'd put it on and I'd click it off. I was just real bad. She took me to the police station to have a cop kind of scare me: "Wear your seatbelt and listen to your mom." He asked me for my name and I said, "Scooter Gennett," and my mom was taken aback. And after that I guess I felt like if I told them my real name I was going to get arrested. After that, I never answered to Ryan for the next year or two. So Scooter just kind of stuck.



As far as fantasy prospects go, though, I'd take the other one. (Sam Miller)
