DateQuestionAnswer
2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Wilson - 12 team 5x5 root dynasty, 10 player minor league system... Ian Happ is currently a free agent. I have no one to drop, my bottom few guys are Lewis Brinson, Sean Manaea, Rafael Devers, and Byron Buxton. Would you suggest trying to move a couple of them together for someone to make room for Ian or no? I am very bullish on Manaea, I know he's the easy answer to move. What are your thoughts on my situation and Happ's ceiling? Thank you.
(TrickDaddy14 from Yompton)
I've liked watching Happ hit since the Cape a couple summers ago, and especially if he stays at 2B as the Cubs seem committed to trying, I really like him as a dynasty asset. I get that you like Manaea, but in a league that shallow I'd strongly prefer Happ. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a long term keeper league, where proximity to the majors isn't important, who do you prefer Sean Manaea or Taylor Guerreiri?
(Chris from Baltimore)
I'd prefer Manaea in any format, especially given that both are (so far) slated for pitcher-friendly parks. His strikeout rate is fire. #scoutingthestatline. Both have names that are tough to spell, losing points with me across the board. (Bryan Grosnick)
2015-09-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Sean Manaea?
(Alex from SF)
He's going to be a solid three starter for Oakland, two plus potential pitches backed up with an average change. That works. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-09-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)So this year has been pretty terrible for A's fans. Billy Beane dealt the first legit offensive star in Josh Donaldson this team has had since Miguel Tejada, and he got pennies on the dollar (fingers crossed on Franklin Barreto!). Then we saw Jesse Hahn go down with a serious injury and I think he may be sidelined permanently. So give me some good news about the farm. Sean Manaea and Dillon Overton -- thoughts? How about Renato Nunez and Matt Olson? Is Matt Chapman anything other than a Stockton mirage?
(Ted from San Jose)
Still shaking my head at the Donaldson trade. I liked pretty much all the pieces the A's got back... but they aren't guys you trade a star 3B for. Really like Manaea. He's a dude. Going to be perfect middle rotation/3 SP in Oakland. Not sure the fastball command will be there for anything more than that though. Great park for his skill set, too. And man... personality is a perfect fit for the A's. Great get. Overton wasn't throwing very hard last I heard. Have to see where the health is there, but he's got some potential. My reports on the other guys are pretty dated. I wasn't a big fan of Olson. (Al Skorupa)
2015-07-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Do you like the Ben Zobrist trade from the A's perspective? LHP Sean Manaea has an injury history, but it's nice to see some pitching talent that the A's acquire who isn't described as "fringy."
(John from Sacramento)
Beane has a history of trading prospects as soon as they hit the apex of their value so giving him more assets is a positive in my mind. I like the trade for the Royals more but it was still good for the A's. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-07-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Sean Manaea is a much sexier fantasy prospect in Oakland, right?
(Carney Lansford from Oakland)
He is because of the park he would inherit but again, specifically with a Beane prospect, the situation can change quickly. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-06-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of prospect would you trade Brandon Moss for? Points league.
(Quigley Q from The Moon)
Ugh, these questions are so hard. I'd try to give up a No. 3/4 fantasy starter prospect, since those guys are super fungible anyway. Sooooo, like, AJ Cole? Sean Manaea? (Ben Carsley)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is Sean Manaea firmly back on the prospect radar? Has re-established the ceiling first glimpse in his Cape Cod stardom?
(RatedRookie from Atlanta)
Absolutely back on the prospect radar and has been for a year-plus. It would be tough for him to regain the hype he had on the Cape a couple of years ago, and having seen him during that time, that's not an insult. He was ridiculous on the Cape that summer and not many prospects can sustain or get back to that level. (Mark Anderson)
2015-03-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospects ranked in BP's 2015 top 50-101 have the best chance of vaulting into the top 10 or 20 for 2016?
(GLK from Boston)
I like Sean Manaea most for this category. Nods to Jeff Hoffman, Alex Jackson, Franklin Barreto. (Sam Miller)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)From clips I have seen, Sean Manaea looks like a potential TOTR arm. Is he someone that most off the country is just late/missing or are there other concerns, or is his stuff just playing up to lower competition? Thanks
(Tony from KC)
I think there's some delay in the love for Manaea because of his injuries in college, his sliding draft stock, and an up-and-down 2014 season. The raw stuff can be filthy when he's on and I'm betting that clicks in 2015 and he blows up quite a bit. (Mark Anderson)
2014-10-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)Sean Manaea, household name next year? #2 starter?
(Eddie from Cuyahoga Falls)
Hard to be a household name when you struggle to repeat consistently and are getting touched up by inferior hitters. He has that type of ceiling, but everyone is waiting for him to relive that glorious Cape Cod summer season. I don't know if that ever happens, but the stuff is very good, and he's got a chance to be a major league starter. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did Sean Manaea figure something out over his past few starts? Future No 2? Also, is John Lamb actually remaking himself into a prospect?
(Mike from Holden)
#2 ceiling, but I'm more comfortable with him as a mid-rotation arm. Lamb is making us take notice, but as always, it's going to take a more consistent version of this to get buy-in. Well, unless you're Bret. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think Sean Manaea's ceiling is? His probability of reaching it?
(Nard Dog from I don't trust you, Phyllis!)
It's high but he's a long way out. And his probability is scant (as it is for most arms). He could be a frontliner, but it's more dream than reality right now (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Jordan! It looks like Sean Manaea is struggling really badly (terrible WHIP around 1.700) especially away from the pitcher's paradise of Wilmington (5.00 ERA overall, 6.50 on the road). Is he missing the command of all his pitches, or just the non-fastballs?
(Harry from Decatur)
Manaea is having trouble putting it all together, but I wouldn't pay attention to the stat line here. It's about development. Right now, there are two Sean Manaeas. One who is 89-92 with no command, a flat breaker, not much plane, and a lagging change. There's another who is 91-94 with an unhittable ghost FB, a crackling breaker, and a developing CH. Lately, the bad Manaea has been toeing the rubber, but the upside is still that of one of the best lefties in the game; the stuff can be downright filthy. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)More upside: Manaea or Heaney?
(Henri from Mexico)
Sean Manaea. (Ron Shah)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Sean Manaea? Weird stats: 67k in just 48.1ip but 25bb and and opponents hitting nearly .300. I don't think he's pitched into the 6th inning all year, coming off injury and battling control issues. I thought as a college guy with pedigree he could be a relatively fast mover but it seems he has a ways to go.
(JoJo from SD)
Hey man not move as fast as some had expected, but the reports on him have been excellent. He's just figuring out how to put it all together. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Sean Manaea's spring to this point? How do you reconcile the 53/14 K/BB ratio with the .305 average against? What are scout reports on his velocity and stuff?
(Bill from Bozeman)
To be completely honest with you, I had absolutely no idea what Manaea's numbers were until you told me, and I looked them up. I often pay a limited amount of attention to that stuff, especially in the low minors. The reports on him have been borderline graphic. If he can be 90% of what he was in the '12 Cape league, you're looking at a middle of the rotation guy. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-17 20:00:00 (link to chat)My milb draft for my dynasty league is tomorrow, I have a plethora of early picks including 6 out of the first 11 and 1st overall. I am taking Kris Bryant number 1 but my real question is should I take Jon Gray or Kyle Schwarber with my number 4 pick assuming Aiken and Rondon go 2 and 3. I also have the 6th, 8th, 9th, and 11th picks. There are many arms including Harvey, Urias, Manaea, Glassnow, Shipley, Stewart, Wisler, Appel, still available including other arms from the most recent draft.
(robarge00 from Vermont)
Not Scoresheet, but we can dig, we're versatile! We'll please Fantasy Overlord Bret Sayre's heart and say Schwarber, because the thing he can do is more rare than what Jon Gray can do. We'd actually rate Sean Manaea from that list ahead of Gray, which is a minority opinion, but you're certainly right that Gray is closer to the pile of arms than he is to superstardom. We'd also suggest that you check out Bret's list of top players for dynasty value for even more of his wisdom. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sean Manaea looks great so far with K's and BB's (12.33 K/9 & 1.76 BB/9). He's been extremely unlucky so far with a .390 BABIP and a 52.1 LOB%. Thoughts?
(seankelleher2 from MA)
I'm just hoping he's still in Wilmington when I go home this summer (that's my home town). I haven't seen him yet, but CJ Wittmann has and has good things to say about him here.

2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)who has the highest ceiling between Alexander Reyes and Sean Manaea?
(gdabdullah from milwaukee)
I'd say they're fairly comparable as potential #2 guys. Maybe Reyes has a little more ceiling because he's further away and it's more likely something crazy happens and gives him an extra bump, but by the same token he carries more risk. If I'm picking one today, I'm going with Manaea (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you concur with the recent glowing reports on Albert Almora and Sean Manaea?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
100 percent yes. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sean Manaea will shoot up the list by seasons end. True or false. please explain your theory
(Gary from St Pete)
True. He's healthy and nasty. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me 5 SP prospects you are higher on than industry? I really like Sean Manaea.
(JoJo from SD)
Manaea is a good one to like. I think I'm higher, or at least more ready to gamble on, Fried, Zack Lee, A.J. Cole, Zach Eflin and Allen Webster than are some of my peers. I was very high on Giolito last season compared to most, but the industry seems to have caught up with me there. I'm lower on Biddle, Ranaudo, Taillon (slightly), and Lance McCullers than are some in the industry, it seems. (Ben Carsley)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Could you rank these pitchers in term of future fantasy value: C.J. Edwards, Miguel Almonte, Vincent Velasquez, Sean Manaea, and Alexander Reyes Thanks!
(Adam from Toronto )
Manaea, Almonte, Edwards, Reyes, Velasquez. (Ben Carsley)
