BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey George, thanks so much for the chat! Wondering what kind of upside Manny Margot can have for fantasy. Do you think he can be a .300-10-30 guys for years to come? Sorta like an AJ Pollock lite? Or is that a stretch. Thinking about going after him in a deep dynasty league.
(treynay3 from Tampa)
No problem! Glad to help out! I think Margot's reasonable floor for the immediate future is a .260 hitter with 20-25 steals. He feels a lot like Kevin Kiermaier to me offensively. I think there is batting average upside eventually, but counting on him to make a major impact right away is probably a mistake. He's a great target in dynasty formats, but the real payoff might be a few years away. (George Bissell)
2016-12-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)How valuable would a player be with dynamite defence, and who walks ~40% of the time, but never hits? How high would his OBP have to get from walks alone to be a useful contributor?
(Van from Canada)
This is a fun one, and I think Ben and Sam addressed this question on one of the hundreds of episodes of Effectively Wild. It depends on where he provides the dynamite defense. Is it at catcher, where he's a Jose Molina-quality framer? Is it at shortstop a la Andrelton Simmons, or in CF like Kevin Kiermaier?

If we establish the baseline as a two-win defender with a .400 OBP, he'd probably be *very* valuable, despite his lack of hits. A .000/.400/.000 line is a lot better than the .400 OPS looks, and only seven players with over 300 PA had a .400 OBP last year. I'd look at this kind of player as worth 5 wins as a catcher, closer to 4 as a shortstop, and 3.5 as a centerfielder/3B/2B. He'd be pretty good. (Bryan Grosnick)
2015-09-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who travels with more efficiency, crippled cricket or Kevin Kiermaier?
(FireflyJenkins from El Segundo)
The cricket doesn't try robbing home runs on routine fly balls. (R.J. Anderson)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)What should I do with Brandon Moss? Steven Souza and Kevin Kiermaier are on waivers. Should I drop Moss for one of them?
(childgrambino from Richmond, VA)
If you're going to drop Moss, go with Souza for the power/speed combo. Depends a lot on your categorical needs. Souza will be better all around, Moss's raw power will trump Souza. (Mike Gianella)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)If it wasn't for Kevin Kiermaier and a few other bit players, would I already have been fired from the Rays for missing completely on just about every 1st round pick by the Rays since Price?
(RJ Harrison from St. Petersburg, FL)
Luckily there are 39 rounds after the first one. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Better fantasy center fielder in an H2H dynasty league Adam Eaton or Kevin Kiermaier?
(Mike B from CA)
...Kiermaier. I believe in Eaton's bat a little bit more, but I believe there's a better chance Kiermaier develops into a steals weapon at this point than Eaton does. (Sam Miller)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the very deapest of dynasty leagues, would you consider Kevin Kiermaier, Jesus Montero, Brock Holt, Brandon Barnes, Bobby Abreu, Eugenio Suarez, Rene Rivera, Steve Pearce, and Juan Lagares. In what order would you rank them of those you would consider?
(Donald from Orlando)
I'd look at Kiermaier, and Holt most among that group. Kiermaier has some nice PT with Myers down and Holt seems to be ready to play anywhere to stay in the lineup. There isn't a lot of disparity in the group, but for this year only, I'd still give Abreu a look, too. Beyond that, Suarez and Montero would be my next two. (Paul Sporer)
2014-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin Kiermaier is projected as a 5 win player by one system. Say what?
(Dee Rae from Bay Area)
When we have driverless cars, there will be far fewer accidents, less traffic, more efficient use of the streets and the cars themselves, but we'll still have to sit semi-alert in the driver's seat (Sam Miller)
