DateQuestionAnswer
2019-05-13 16:00:00 (link to chat)With Travis Shaw playing so badly over a quarter of the season now, why is Keston Hiura not up? Is it Hiura‚Äôs defense? Faith/hope that Shaw will rebound? What gives here?
(Buff from Colorado)
I just checked Hiura's stats and ... well, holy shit. He's at .333/.406/.706 with 11 homers and 12 doubles in 36 games at Triple-A as a 22-year-old. I realize the juiced MLB ball has now inflated Triple-A power numbers to an extreme degree too, but that's an example of an elite prospect banging down the door to the majors.

Travis Shaw is struggling, like you mentioned. So is Jesus Aguilar at first base. My guess is that the Brewers will give them another month or so to get right, considering how valuable they've both been in the past, but I do think Hiura is going to get a chance soon-ish, perhaps in a part-time role initially. Milwaukee's defensive versatility could give them some good mix-and-match opportunities with him in the fold and, while I think calling up a top prospect for a non-everyday role is generally a bad idea, a team in the thick of the playoff race doing so makes more sense. (Aaron Gleeman)
2019-05-01 12:00:00 (link to chat)Michael Chavis is playing a lot of 2B in Boston. The Brewers are playing Travis Shaw at 2B. Do you see this eventually changing the way you evaluate second basemen?
(Brady Childs from KIN 100)
As someone enjoying this Ajax run I am ready for positionless baseball. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-02-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)12 tm H2H keep 10 forever league with OPS and TB added to the normal 5 offensive categories. Pick two of Travis Shaw, Mondesi, Gallo, Pham, Clevenger and Puig. Thanks.
(ksmille2 from Chicago)
Gallo and Puig. (Mike Gianella)
2018-02-06 15:00:00 (link to chat)After selling at the deadline last season, I have a lot of keeper options to sort through. I am in a standard 12-team mixed-league 5x5 roto league with a $260 budget, but we use OBP instead of AVG and SV + 1/2 H instead of just saves. We can keep 5 MLB players; the first year without a price increase, in subsequent years price goes up $10 each year. We can also keep one minor leaguer (I have both Mejia and Acuna and could burn an MLB slot on one of them if I want) I have the following possible keepers: Nomar Mazara $11 Justin Turner $9 Gio Gonzalez $4 Jerad Eickhoff $2 Jon Gray $2 Julio Teheran $2 Orlando Arcia $2 Joey Gallo $1 Rafael Devers $1 Rhys Hoskins $1 Travis Shaw $1 Francisco Mejia $1 Ronald Acuna $1 Which 6 would you keep?
(bmmcmahon from Los Angeles)
As much as I think he's the safest bet here, I'm tempted to throw back Turner just based the on the savings and your quantity of $1 options. I'll say Turner, Gallo, Devers, Hoskins, Shaw, Acuna, but I wouldn't blame you for saving the money on Turner and keeping Gray instead. (Darius Austin)
2016-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Travis Shaw or Wilmer Flores
(Rixky from Boston)
Shaw. (Kenny Ducey)
2016-05-16 23:00:00 (link to chat)Are you buying Travis Shaw?
(Mook from Redwood)
Yes with a bullet. I think he's hitting over his head slightly, but the swing's perfect for Fenway and the doubles production is legit in that park. He's been a poor-but-valid defender at third, but he's one of those rat types that can play above his tools through force of will. Wouldn't be surprised if he can improve into average range with the glove over time. I've long been a fan from afar, digging that he's doing it now.

It's time to get serious now. Time to get down to bidniss: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA1vYeK8Who (Wilson Karaman)
2016-05-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Mr. Gianella, what are your thoughts on Travis Shaw? Should I be believing in his performance? Top 10 3B? Thanks
(Leonard from None of Your Business)
He's not going to be THIS great but I can buy him as a Top 10 guy going forward. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)The following names aren't necessarily exciting....but in what order would you rank Trayce Thompson, Travis Shaw, Patrick Kivlehan and Tyler Goeddel for a dynasty league? Would there be a standout if just looking for potential current year impact? Cheers
(markdavo4 from Australia)
In dynasty, Shaw, Kivlehan, Goeddel, and Thompson. For 2016 only Goeddel has an opportunity now that Aaron Altherr is out for most if not all of the season and could be the guy to take a big leap forward. (Mike Gianella)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can Travis Shaw win a starting job this season?
(Mark from B-More)
No. He's a really nice bench piece to have but he's not the player he looked like last season. And since I don't see Ramirez failing nearly as miserably at 1B as he did in LF, there's really nowhere for Shaw to go. (Matt Collins)
2015-09-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)At what point is Travis Shaw real?
(Rob from Alaska)
Stranger things have happened. He's on the right side of a platoon split in terms of remaining productive, I think he's shown enough to warrant attention as a productive player, althought I'm still not in on a nearly .500 slugging long term. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-09-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Travis Shaw for real? Can he be a league average corner bat?
(Hillbilly Hugging Tree from backyard ozarks)
I'm skeptical. Think he's more of a bench bat guy, maybe a platoon option? (Christopher Crawford)
