BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
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)
