DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)How many pitches would Nick Tepesch have to throw before he struck out 2000-2003 era Barry Bonds? And how many Dingers would Bonds have hit before three strikes went past him?
(Frazer from (Exeter, UK))
Wonderful question. Does the at-bat start over if/when Bonds hits a dinger? If that's the case, I could see 40+ pitches. (Cespedes Family BBQ)
2014-05-07 17:00:00 (link to chat)Texas just called up Scott Baker...How much more does Nick Tepesch have to show before he gets the call?
(Chad from OKC)
Probably not much more. I could see him pitching another couple of months in the minors and being a midseason call-up if the Rangers have a need. (Mike Gianella)
2013-04-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)What did you think of Nick Tepesch's outing for fantasy purpose's, had him in 3 league.s last night, seems to be a Westbrook type groundballer,perfect for Arlington,do you think he can stick around awhile?
(boatman44 from Liverpool)
Like a lot of fantasy experts, I had no idea who this guy was until the Rangers announced that he was going to be the team's fifth starter. I was skeptical that the Rangers were pushing him because they didn't want to get sucked into the Kyle Lohse sweepstakes, but a number of Rangers' watchers - most notably Adam Morris of Lone Star Ball - were impressed with Tepesch's improved composure and presence on the mound. He's a rookie pitcher and certainly will take his lumps, but his debut gives him the opportunity to stick around and possibly not get demoted once Matt Harrison comes back. Tepesich could be a #3-4 starter at his peak. (Mike Gianella)
2013-04-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have had injuries to my SP's and need replacements for the next moth or so. The important stats in my league are Quality Starts and K's. Which two of Dillon Gee, Nick Tepesch, Luis Mendoza, Kevin Slowley, Bartolo Colon, and Roberto Hernandez should I pick up? I am leaning toward Hernandez and Gee.
(Todd from Dallas)
I wish I knew. Gun to my head, please don't put a gun to my head. Then, after you put your gun away, I'd probably go with Colon and whomever you're feeling after that. (Matthew Kory)
