2015-09-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)I've been hanging on to my last $1 forever in my dynasty league. Here are a few guys who have risen up my list. Looking for most upside here. Who should I spend my $1 on? Domingo Acevedo,Jordan Patterson,Kevin Padlo,Wilson Contreras,Harold Ramirez,Johan Mieses,Chad Pinder,Isan Diaz,Willy Garcia,Yairo Munoz
(TheDave from AR)
I'd throw that dollar on Isan Diaz, Wilson Contreras and Yairo Munoz in that order. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)Im loving the way Willy Garcia is playing in winter league against much older competition. sadly hes blocked in his organization could be a good trade chip?
(jean from Brooklyn)
Don't read too much into winter (or fall) league numbers. They are rarely that valuable. That said, Garcia has some intriguing potential and he merits plenty of attention. I wouldn't worry too much about him being blocked; these things have a way of working themselves out. If he ends up not having a place to play and proves worthy of a spot, they can always deal him or deal someone else to clear room. For now, sit back and enjoy the developmental ride until he forces the hand of the Pirates. (Mark Anderson)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Steven Moya or Willy Garcia ... which hacker has a better chance at a successful big league career?
(Sall Manella from Georgia)
I don't particularly love either profile. But, Moya is closer and has had success in high minors, so I'll say him, and not feel great about it. (Jordan Gorosh)
