DateQuestionAnswer
2017-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)In a league that does not value strikeouts, who are the best bets to close most of the season in Miami, Arizona and Milwaukee?
(Chopper from Indy)
I'm most confident here in Milwaukee, because I actually believe in the strides Neftali Feliz has made (or at least has been reported to have made) in his velocity. I have some shares of AJ Ramos so it pains me to admit that it's likely Kyle Barraclough overcomes him if he even has half of his last year's season, but I think they split the share of saves pretty evenly.

I completely hate the bullpen situation in Arizona and would not want any part of it, so I'll make a bold prediction here. I think Fernando Rodney doesn't really latch on in any real way and that Jake Barrett (while the natural choice to take over as closer) is passed over in favor of Archie Bradley, who becomes a bullpen ace and a top 5 NL closer. (Trevor Strunk)
2016-12-05 20:00:00 (link to chat)No question, just letting you know I landed Bear Claw as part of a larger trade in a SV+HLD dynasty league a few days ago. Both for the good and bad, I'm holding you accountable.
(Jim G. from Naples)
Welcome to #TeamBearclaw. So far, I've been right about Kyle Barraclough through two years. The command is still in Carlos Marmol territory, but if he harnesses it, we're looking at something special. He posted 14.0 K/9 with lackluster control, so keep that in mind. I'm a huge fan. (George Bissell)
2016-12-05 20:00:00 (link to chat)I just added Kyle Barraclough in my dynasty league. I dont see any reason why the marlins would sign chapman or Jansen and lose a top 14 pick as well as put their resources in a closer when they have little shot to compete without JF. Is he a decent bet for saves in 2017?
(brad14 from NJ)
Had to end with a #Bearclaw question. I don't see him getting into the closer role in 2017. Ramos is still around and it wouldn't shock me if they invested in someone like Jansen. (George Bissell)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Matt. Long time listener (about a minute), first time caller. Please give me two relievers (one Sox, one not) who you think could break out this year.
(bgrosnick from Michigan)
For the Sox, I'll go with Matt Barnes. Focusing solely on being a reliever could do him wonders. Non-Sox I'll say Kyle Barraclough. (Matt Collins)
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some young RP prospects that make an impact in the majors this season?
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena, CA)
I hate this question, just because this is a guessing game that has as much to do with opportunity and the ineffectiveness of others in a bullpen as it does with any prospect relievers. Corey Knebel in Milwaukee interests me because the opportunity is there, and by law we have to root for Kyle Barraclough because George Bissell likes him (Mike Gianella)
