2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike, The basics: keeper league, keep 8 players forever. I tanked last year for picks and now have a great team. Got a trade offer: my Prince Fielder for his Adrian Gonzalez and David Wright. I would be replacing Nick Markakis in my utility slot. Additionally, I could ship off David Wright because I have Adrian Beltre currently at 3rd to get another player. Should I take the deal or keep Prince knowing that I have the best keeper there and will probably be fine without the other two? Thanks!
(Joe from Seattle)
Hey Joe.

I like Prince a lot but think that this is a terrific trade for you. You didn't mention what format you play, but Wright isn't that much worse than Fielder and you're getting Gonzalez instead of Markakis which I view as an upgrade. Make the deal. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)I have Carlos Quentin, Nick Markakis, Carlos Gomez, and Brandon Moss for 5 dollars each in a deep $325 32 roster spots league. Given several ?s such as health and building off breakout seasons, do you have any particular feelings on any of these players to produce to the level they have once or recently shown?
(Sal from Staten island)
Either way, those are great bargains in a deep league. Quentin is in the "best shape of his life" if you're a believer in that...I'd gladly take all 4 of those guys in a deep league like that. (Jason Collette)
2012-11-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you set us straight, please, about some slow right-handed sluggers: 1) Why are the Orioles pursuing Jonny Gomes, unless Nolan Reimold is not expected to fully recover? 2) Why would anyone want a 27 year old .700 OPS (last two seasons) player known for his miscues - Delmon Young, unless they are duped into thinking he's still going to be good based on a good week in the ALCS?
(John Carter from Toronto)
Good afternoon, John Carter. The Orioles-Gomes connection surfaced yesterday, and I touched on it in today's Rumor Roundup. A designated hitter platoon certainly isn't ideal, but Gomes has a track record of mashing left-handed pitching, so there's room for him to share that job with, say, Chris Davis, even if Reimold and Nick Markakis are healthy and playing full-time in the outfield corners.

As for Delmon, I think most teams will be smart enough to seek other options, so a rough landing might be in store. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is an upside projection/comparison of the Marlin's Christian Yelich someone like Nick Markakis?
(Paul from DC)
Yeah, I think Yelich profiles as a .285+ hitter with 10-15 HR and a ton of doubles. It's also not out of the question that he develops into a .300 hitter. (Jason Parks)
2012-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've wanted the following PFM enhancement for years: A way to compare players per game. In other words, players are ranked by including predicted playing time, which puts part time players much lower in rankings. But on a day-by-day basis, you may know that the part timer is going to be in the major league lineup and on a game-by-game basis, he may actually be better than the guy you normally start. In other words, if the PFM generated a daily value, based on the idea that every player listed would be in the lineup, then you can better compare part-time players vs. everyday players when filling out a daily fantasy lineup. For example, perhaps John Mayberry is a better fantasy player when in the lineup than Nick Markakis, even though the PFM ranks Markakis much higher overall. I hope I made this clear.
(tommybones from brooklyn)
I think I follow, yes. I think this can be accomplished with the current PFM setup if you only use rate stats. If we added more rate stats to the PFM (like RBI/PA, for instance) would that satisfy what you're looking for here? (Colin Wyers)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank em please: Brantly, Markakis, Pagan, Torres
(Ralph from Arlington)
I think you've got the order right there. Michael Brantley, Nick Markakis, Angel Pagan, Andres Torres. Brantley and Markakis are close, but I'd probably go Brantley first. (Derek Carty)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think is better for this year and for the future, Adam Jones or Nick Markakis?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Nick Markakis now, potentially Adam Jones down the line. I'll have a better answer for you before 2011.

Sorry about the delay everyone, I'm having some issues with my computer. (Marc Normandin)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Am I crazy to say that Nick Markakis could be the next Al Kaline.
(Mike from Utica,NY)
It's an interesting comparison, but here's hoping Markakis does better as an outfield coach when he's charged with teaching Kirk Gibson III how to play the field in... what, 2038? (Christina Kahrl)
2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)I seem to remember a spirited debate taking place a few years ago over whether Melky Cabrera was a better prospect than Nick Markakis, with more than a few people taking up Melky's case. Was there ever a legitimate reason for differing opinions? Yankees fans have been known to overvalue their players from time to time...
(tim from jersey city, nj)
No, it was never legitimate. That was me looking at some early statistical similarities when they first came up, but their paths quickly diverged. It was my way of rooting for Melky to be more than what he was in a kind of tongue in cheek way. (Steven Goldman)
2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have the various games this year between the Yankees and the Orioles given you any impression of the Orioles this year?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
They're a bit more entertaining than they have been for the last few years, because they now have like four-fifths of an interesting batting order. The pitching staff remains a concept. Things are coming together so slowly, that I feel like Nick Markakis and Adam Jones will be free agent eligible before the O's manage to put a team around them... That's the one great thing about free agency - no player is condemned to be Wally Berger now, or Ralph Kiner, or Bob Johnson. If your team is unserious or incompetent, you can bail. (Steven Goldman)
2008-09-23 13:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. What do you think of Aubrey Huff going forward? And is Nick Markakis already the best RF in the American League?
(Brendan from Bainbridge)
I wouldn't want to make a long-term commitment to Huff, and while he has had a great season, the Orioles really should look to leverage that in the trade market. He'll never have more value than this, and he's not a part of their future.

Markakis is a total stud, the best RF in the league. He's underappreciated, kind of the AL East version of Grady Sizemore. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Orioles are hitting .311/.372/.511 in the 30 games since the All-Star break and are now 3rd in the AL in runs behind Texas and Boston. Should they sign a few big pitchers next season and make a push, or is this season's offense just a collection of career years?
(Steve from Baltimore)
The latter. There's some good players here--Nick Markakis, Brian Roberts, Adam Jones (now hurt)--but the recent push is about guys like Aubrey Huff and Melvin Mora, who have no future here. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi John- Thanks for answering my question. Since O's fans don't have a lot to look forward to, what do you believe can be the peak for Nick Markakis?
(ripfan008 from Baltimore)
I really like Markakis. I think he's a solid bet to have a lot of 30-homer, 100-RBI years with a decent batting average. (John Perrotto)
