BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)5x5 OBP league, who are the top two you value most ROS at 1B: Adrian Gonzalez, Freddie Freeman, Hanley Ramirez, Brandon Belt, Chris Carter, Stephen Piscotty, Victor Martinez, Pedro Alvarez?
(Truganini from CO)
Freeman and Piscotty, with Belt and Ramirez very close behind. (J.P. Breen)
2015-10-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Matt, I was just wondering if you could list who each team's Michael Conforto is and when you expect them to be called up.
(M.Zaun from NumbahOne)
M is referring to this Tweet of mine from July (https://twitter.com/MATrueblood/status/618124092940550144), in which I defended the prospect teams decision not to rank Conforto among the top 50 prospects in baseball by explaining what I understood to be his limitations. Hes grown beyond some of those. Hes a better player than many on the BP staff, and certainly than I, thought he would be.
That said, keep Conforto in perspective, folks. If you gave us another crack at that midseason 50 list, hed probably make it, but he wouldnt be above, for instance, Aaron Judge (13th) or Nick Williams (21st). Even Stephen Piscotty (40th, and maybe also rated too low; his power developed so very late in his overall developmental arc) has a case for being above Conforto. Still, Ms snark isnt unfounded. (Matthew Trueblood)
2015-09-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Better career, Greg Bird or Stephen Piscotty?
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena, CA)
It's a little closer than some might think? But I'd still go with Piscotty; mainly because of the positional value. I really like Greg Bird, though, and I'm glad he's playing well. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Any ideas who the Cardinals might target as a LHH 1B, seeing that Mark Reynolds kinda stinks against RHP? What can/should they offer that would get him? Best "What will we do with a drunken sailor" knockoff I've ever seen, by they way.
(Bill from New Mexico)
Seems like a limited market for bats in general, let alone a specific LH bat. So, no I don't really have any great ideas. I think they're just going to roll with Stephen Piscotty if he can handle the position.

Thanks! (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, love the chats, podcasts and website! Could Stephen Piscotty at first ever approach a Freddie Freeman type profile?
(Joshua Reid from Nashville)
I don't see the power getting there to be quite that good. (Mike Gianella)
2015-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)R.J., thanks for the time today. Stephen Piscotty has gotten off to a sluggish start this season. He doesn't figure to be a power hitting RF, but would an Alex Gordon offensive comparison be reasonable? Less power for Piscotty?
(MP from KY)
Seems plausible. Maybe with fewer walks? (R.J. Anderson)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty-wise, is Stephen Piscotty ever going to join the Cards, or is he going to get something similar to the Domonic Brown treatment? Is Piscotty worth keeping with the Cards current OF?
(Ron from Texarkana)
He'll join the Cards when/if he remembers how to hit. He's had a rough go of it this year and his struggles have likely pushed him out of the picture for 2015. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-05-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)SSS but the results seem to support more power produced by Stephen Piscotty's revamped swing. Have you seen him or gotten any reports? Is the power increase sustainable?
(Kingpin from Grinnell, IA)
I have heard that the swing involves more of the lower-half and has more loft, so that's good; you want that from a corner outfielder. The hit tool is still what's going to carry him to a big league role, but he's a smart hitter and I am sure he'll find a way to incorporate both. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a shallow keeper league with an unlimited farm roster, but only a 3 round prospect draft each year. As a result, guys like Alex Meyer, Tyler Kolek, Hunter Harvey, and Stephen Piscotty are still available. How would you rank them in with the obvious top new talent (e.g. Tomas, Castillo, Rodon, Schwarber)?
(Steve from LBC)
Meyer Harvey Piscotty Kolek. I like Kolek the prospect but fantasy wise hes a ways away from contributing. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many of your NL Central Top 25 do you expect to make it on the top 100 list when BP publishes it? Average would be around 16 or 17 assuming talent is evenly distributed, right?
(Mike from Texas)
I did say I'd throw a top 25 NL Central Prospects list out there during this chat. With the understanding this is a work in progress (Mellen and I are starting to dig in on the framework for the Top 101), this is my own personal ranking of the prospects covered in our NL Central rankings:

1. SS Addison Russell
2. 3B Kris Bryant
3. RHP Robert Stephenson
4. OF Jorge Soler
5. OF Albert Almora
6. OF Stephen Piscotty
7. LHP Marco Gonzales
8. RHP Tyler Glasnow
9. RHP Jameson Taillon
10. OF Jesse Winker
11. OF/1B Josh Bell
12. RHP Alex Reyes
13. C Kyle Schwarber
14. RHP Michael Lorenzen
15. SS Orlando Arcia
16. OF Tyrone Taylor
17. OF Billy McKinney
18. RHP Pierce Johnson
19. SS Gleyber Torres
20. RHP Jack Flaherty
21. OF Yorman Rodriguez
22. C Reese McGuire
23. RHP Nick Howard
24. RHP Devin Williams
25. LHP Rob Kaminsky

I think all of those guys will be in the discussion for the 101, and expect there to be some shuffling in order of course. Definitely more than the average of 16 or 17. (NL Central Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)Does Oswaldo Arcia worth holding onto long term in my dynasty league? Have Stephen Piscotty, Nick Williams, Raimel Tapia and Yasmani Tomas waiting in the wings.
(Drew from Rockford, IL)
I would have Arcia over Yasmani, but the OFers you have coming through are all making a big push this year. He's on the fringe for me. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Would you trade Alex Reyes, Stephen Piscotty, and Reese McGuire for me in a dynasty?
(Justin Verlander from Rock City)
Yes, I would. Reyes is years away, Piscotty is nice but replaceable and McGuire is a better MLB prospect than a fantasy one. If I'm giving up Verlander, I actually want more than this. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)It begins to look conceivable -- not certain, but possible -- that Stephen Piscotty will be called up to St. Louis before Taveras. What's happened? Has Oscar's star dimmed, or is Piscotty another of those "where-did-that-come-from" stories that the Cardinals have had so many of recently?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Don't read too much into who gets called up first. Other than being sort-of injury prone, nothing has dimmed about Taveras. Piscotty has come on strong, but many times its about the other factors at work. Perhaps the Cardinals are more willing to call Piscotty up without consistent playing time than Taveras. Who knows? Taveras is still every bit the prospect he was a year ago today. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Stephen Piscotty does nothing, but hit and hit. And hit. Has his pro performance surprised you? What do you think is a reasonable expectation for a peak season?
(Jack from MO)
He has surprised me some so far. I thought he had a chance to be a solid player, but the more he performs and the more I hear from scouts that are watching him every day, he sounds more and more like an above-average guy that can really contribute to a championship level club. (Mark Anderson)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Stephen Piscotty and Cameron Perkins. Other than the spelling of their names how do they differ? Statistically they appear to be the same guy.
(Free_AEC from South Jersey)
Piscotty is a far superior player in my mind. Much better feel for the game, better overall feel for hitting, and a better defender. I'd take him 10 times out of 10 and not even think about it very long. (Mark Anderson)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Most future fantasy value (please rank): Tim Anderson, Raimel Tapia, Francisco Mejia, Stephen Piscotty, Franchy Cordero, Hunter Renfroe
(McClane from Nakatomi Plaza)
Tapia, Mejia, Piscotty, Cordero, Anderson, Renfroe but that's not the order I'd draft them in (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)Stephen Piscotty appears to have impressed the Cardinals this spring. How can the Cardinals find room for both Taveras and Piscotty on the major league roster?
(Jim from St Louis)
They probably don't have room for either. That's how incredibly stacked that organization is. I blame Mort. (Bret Sayre)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)What is Stephen Piscotty's fantasy ceiling?
(MRubio52 from Chicago)
Essentially, Allen Craig but with less power. How the Cardinals keep finding/developing these guys is just incredible. I blame Mort. (Bret Sayre)
2014-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Stephen Piscotty?
(Ryan from New Orleans)
Seems to be another in the line of flat-out quality hitters, although this one wasn't drafted super-late like Carp, Craig, and Adams. He doesn't have a carrying fantasy tool, but rather appears to be a guy who can do a bit of everything. Not sure where's going to play, though. (Paul Sporer)
2013-12-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Stephen Piscotty?
(Nick from St. Louis)
He reminds be of biscotti. Looks like his gap power is starting to push out to HR power. It's too bad he didn't stick in the infield but he seems to be on track to develop enough power to fit in a corner outfield. Of course the Cardinals will probably convert him to a second baseman and leave us all in the dust as usual. (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Stephen Piscotty? Obviously Taveras is the first OF called up. Do we see Piscotty this season?
(Sam from STL)
Piscotty could be ready by this season, but it may be a bit of a rush and seems unnecessary. Half of the Cardinals major league roster can play the outfield if need be. (Jeff Moore)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Stephen Piscotty - enough power upside to handle corner OF or 4th OF with plus hit tool?
(Fredbird from STL)
I'm not high on Piscotty, especially given the depth of the Cardinals' organization. I don't think he develops the power to crack that starting outfield. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Stephen Piscotty did not make your top 10 for the Cards, but they've had some great success with modest ceiling college players. Do you think he has a reasonable shot to be anything more than a solid regular?
(Jeff from Houston)
I don't. It might be a stretch to assume he hits the ceiling of a solid-regular. I'd put his ceiling a little below that. (Jason Parks)
