DateQuestionAnswer
2018-04-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)So Robert Gsellman is Chad Green?
(Danny NJ from NJ)
Maaaaaaaaybe. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-09-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)I haven't followed the entire chat and am trying to slip this question in. Feelings on Matz' comeback for next year? With Gsellman's September, is there hope he can be a solid 200 IP/#3 pitcher?
(ironcityguys from home)
Iron City Guys, you may be shocked to learn that I am still holding out hope for Robert Gsellman.

I'd like to tell you that the ulnar nerve issue was the only issue here, and with that corrected Matz can go back to being 2015/16 Matz, but even that guy wasn't too durable. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the current state of your brand?
(dantroy from CA)
Check back in 2 to 4 more Robert Gsellman starts.

Also, my brand is now #Sixto. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)How sad of a dynasty league team do you have if you've agreed to trade Brian Dozier and Dellin Betances for Mickey Moniak and Robert Gsellman?
(Zach G from OFFICIA)
You know those montages in sitcoms or dramedies where people walk around a park or a pier or sit on a bench and just like, contemplate life and how they've been led to this point? Maybe stare out a bay window as it rains and their coffee gets cold? Yeah. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Side A (sending): Gregory Polanco, Seth Beer (NCAA '18), Austin Beck (HS '17). Side B (sending): Eloy Jimenez, Robert Gsellman, Aaron Nola, J.B. Bukauskus (NCAA '17), Kevin Maitan. Keep forever dynasty league (5x5 + OBP, XBH... + QS, HLD). team A has Ozuna for LF, and really need pitching; Team B is loaded with pitching and needs a LF/UT (otherwise J. Upton). Fair deal? [Obviously we can draft players from HS, college, IFA guys (Ohtani, etc.).]
(Michelle from Milwaukee)
I like the deal for Side A if they're looking for pitching. I'm generally higher on Nola and Gsellman than most, and I would feel confident that you're going to get something productive out of at least one of the two. All told, I think it's a pretty fair deal. Most NCAA and HS players are so far away from producing at the major-league level, and there's so much that can happen during their development. You need to consider the impact of those players, but in terms of major league returns I feel good about it for Side A.

Now let me talk to Side B. In the short term, I'm not starting Polanco over Upton unless I really need steals. I know Upton has injury concerns, but he looked more like the player we expected him to be as last season went on. Upton gains even more value given that this is an OBP league. If your plan is to use Upton now and have Polanco for later I could see that, but don't sell him short in the present. (Eric Roseberry)
2017-03-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Fantasy baseball dynasty league. I just got offered Carlos Carrasco for my Robert Gsellman, Have to accept that right?
(Dave from Florida)
Depends on the specifics of the league and your control over each player, I suppose, but I'd probably go with Carrasco all things being equal. Gsellman is a really good prospect, but Carrasco has a 3.22 ERA and 506 strikeouts in 464 innings over the past three seasons. He's great, if healthy. (Aaron Gleeman)
2017-03-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Robert Gsellman would be the __ starter in most MLB rotations
(Manny from TX)
So many Robert Gsellman questions submitted! PECOTA projects him for a 4.11 ERA, so I'll say no. 3-ish. Lotta long-term upside, obviously. (Aaron Gleeman)
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)Rank the following for 2017 and beyond: Blake Snell, Robert Gsellman, Jameson Taillon.
(Tim from CA)
Taillon quietly had a very good season at two levels, and I wouldn't be shocked this year if he takes a step forward and is at least a major league 2 (with the usual health caveats, and there's more there than with the other two). Past him I like both Snell and Gsellman, would take Gsellman today, maybe Snell tomorrow. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Robert Gsellman 17 overall? Please explain.
(Tim from NY)
I'm not a prospect ranker, so I didn't put him there. It's pretty easy to see the case for him, though: there's virtually no uncertainty. He's already performed well in the majors. No matter how good someone looks like A-ball or even Double-A, they still have to get to the majors. Gsellman got there and is there now, something a lot of High-A and even Double-A pitching prospects will never be able to say. (Scooter Hotz)
2017-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pitching sleepers/breakouts for this year? If possible, geared to points leagues?
(chrispetersen15 from IA)
I'll give you a few deeper late-round mixed options: Garrett Richards, Robert Gsellman, Jharel Cotton and Zach Davies.
As far as "breakouts" go that's a broad term. Starters that I like better than the consensus: Julio Urias, Marcus Stroman, Jon Gray, James Paxton (is so obvious it's painful), and Frankie Liriano. I'm probably forgetting someone...Oh. Draft Rich Hill... (George Bissell)
2017-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's your hitting and pitching deep sleepers for 2017 for deeper leagues - say 16 team or so - and why?
(Anthony from Lunch)
Whats for lunch? Seriously, I'm starving. Um...I'll give you one each. Robert Gsellman & Jharel Cotton on the pitching side. I keep coming back to Steve Pearce as a guy who is a lock to outperform where he's getting drafted. Same goes for Yulieski Gurriel & Asdrubal Cabrera. (George Bissell)
2017-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which side of the Robert Gsellman is really good vs Robert Gsellman isn't that good argument are you on?
(Q from NYC)
I'm of the opinion that Gsellman is really good, if only because Warthen seems to be able to take guys who I think will be bad (See: deGrom, Jacob) and mold them into mid-K, low walk geniuses. Gsellman wasn't just making due with a good ERA and bad peripherals either. I do think he might be in that rough luck 6th starter world for a bit, like a Tyler Lyons of Queens, which might take the shine off of him. But he can pitch, I'd wager, and I think he'll be a rotation mainstay after the Mets lose some of their top tier arms. (Trevor Strunk)
