DateQuestionAnswer
2019-02-25 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your sleeper breakout player. A non top 150 guy who will make the leap to top 25 value.
(Simon from Atlanta)
Jeebus, Kyle Lewis just crushed one halfway to New Mexico.

That's a pretty high bar to clear--150+ to top 25. Excluding rookies like Kyle Tucker, Nick Senzel, or Peter Alonso, I'll give some 150+ names that could improve significantly (if not top 25): Amed Rosario, Jesse Winker, Luke Voit, Ramon Laureano, Hunter Renfroe, Manny Margot, Josh James, Tyler Skaggs. Off the top of my head. (Jon Hegglund)
2019-02-18 16:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming the Yanks don't sign BH or MM, who gets the lion's share of abs at 1B this year?
(Jevin Kebens from BP)
My long lost cousin, Jevin! All my money is on Luke Voit. His 41% HR/FB from 2018 won't stick, but he's a legit bat and power source. Does Bird stay healthy? Does Bird manage to hit above .200? The Yanks may give Bird a chance early, but Voit is the better play based on overall skills. (Kevin Jebens)
2019-02-18 16:00:00 (link to chat)Think he meant Voit, not Vogt :)
(Dave from Pittsburgh)
Ahhh. In that case, I'm all in on Luke Voit for a buck. I'm a fan of Aguilar of course, but the upside is nearly the same for me long term, so even if Voit splits time with Bird early on, you're almost guaranteed profit. (Kevin Jebens)
2018-09-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ottoneu-style dynasty league trade advice needed!! I've been offered both Luis Garcias, the one from Washington and the one from Philadelphia, in exchange for 1B mashers Luke Voit and Ryan O'Hearn. What do I do?
(Tammy Tabernacle from Timbuktu)
I'd make that trade, assuming you have the time and roster space to wait a while for the Garcias. The Washington version certainly has far greater upside than Voit or O'Hearn, and this might be the peak of their value. (Darius Austin)
2018-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ottoneu-style dynasty league trade advice needed please!! I've been offered Ryan Mountcastle and Ramon Laureano in exchange for 1B mashers Ryan O'Hearn and Luke Voit. Should I do it?
(Tammy Tabernacle from Timbuktu)
I think I'd do that. I prefer the Mountcastle and Laureano upside a good bit more. (Mark Barry)
