DateQuestionAnswer
2018-12-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some of your potential breakout pitchers for 2019 that you are targeting in trades/draft?
(Gary Mack from in the back)
I've been going all out trying to get German Marquez, even though targeting a dude that makes half his starts in Colorado makes me a little queasy. I like Josh James a lot in Houston, and think 2019 could be the year Jack Flaherty and Mike Clevinger become stars. Also, it's become a running joke, but I think Kevin Gausman could finally put it together with a full season in a new spot. (Mark Barry)
2018-07-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who has more upside in a dynasty points league Dylan Bundy or Mike Clevinger?
(chuckbrown87 from Alabama)
Clevenger (Eddy Almaguer)
2017-03-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Mike Clevinger? He is a little old for a spect, but headed to AAA. What do you think is his most likely outcome and his upside?
(Brad from nj)
Back-end starter or middle reliever. Good depth to have around, for sure. (Aaron Gleeman)
