BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)I missed out on or traded numerous prospects in my NL-only keeper league. Who are some under the radar guys (it's a 10-team league, large reserve list)? They need to have an ETA of 2018 at the latest as the three year clock starts running on them as soon as they are drafted.
(johnklein from east coast)
This is a tough question. Josh Hader is worth rostering in keeper leagues, despite the risky profile. I'm not sure what qualifies for "under-the-radar" in a 10-team league (as it depends on the size of the reserve list), but guys like Forrest Wall, Yusniel Diaz, Cody Ponce, and Jack Flaherty are guys I like. (J.P. Breen)
2016-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on the recent Cuban imports? (Eddy Julio, Yusniel Diaz, Yasiel Sierra)
(Frau from Boston via Orlando)
They all sound great! (I really don't have a whole lot of feel here. Ask the prospect team, ask Bret Sayre. After three months playing Stateside, they'll start to separate for me. Can't really process them without that much.) (Matthew Trueblood)
2016-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Chris, With Yusniel Diaz's lack of power, is that due to his physique or his swing? Is it possible for him to add power down the road?
(cflanders from BC)
It's a little bit of both. He's not bereft of strength, but this is not a bopper profile by any stretch of the imagination. The swing path also doesn't have much loft, so expecting more than a handful of homers is expecting too much, in my opinion. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Now that Eddy Julio and Yusniel Diaz's names have both been mentioned, I have to ask. How do you compare the two? I imagine these guys will be closely tied for awhile and I've been anxiously waiting for the CHC and LAD list to see BP's take.
(Ryan from Prospect Heaven)
EJM has more raw tools, compared to Diaz's more polished skillset. Diaz has a pretty good floor for a teenager, in that respect. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
2016-02-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)Greg, thanks for doing this chat! My question: Name five prospects currently not in the BP top 50 who have a chance to land there by mid-season. Basically, what 5 prospects do you see rising their stock substantially this year?
(Bill Clinton from Las Vegas)
Just drawing from the 101 here - Clint Frazier, Francis Martes, Harold Ramirez, Yusniel Diaz, Franklyn Kilome, (Greg Wellemeyer)
