DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)20 team dynasty league trade: Coco Crisp + Alfredo Simon + Joaquin Benoit for Desmond + Craig Gentry + Jean Machi, fair trade or obvious winner?
(Jon from Detroit)
Depends a lot on the situations. In a vacuum I like the Desmond-Gentry-Machi side more, but it very much depends on need in my opinion. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Have a couple AL only guys to try and buy low on at this point?
(russellj90 from Iowa)
How about Trevor Bauer, Jonathan Villar and Craig Gentry? Not Mike Moustakas, unfortunately. Stay away. (Ben Carsley)
2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)How much longer should I wait out the slumps of Victor Martinez, Chris Carter, and Craig Gentry?
(hotstatrat from Scoresheet Fantasyland)
Hey hotstatrat. Scoresheet Fantasyland sounds like a place I'd like to live for a while.

A lot of this answer depends more on the players we're talking about than whether or not these guys are going to snap out of their slumps. You probably drafted V-Mart as a first catcher and even in one catcher leagues quality options don't grow on trees. A one catcher league is probably the only place that you can drop V-Mart and find a better option. I think you have to wait, though history isn't on V-Mart's side. Age 32 players who missed an entire season have not historically come back and done well in their Age 33 seasons and later. Danny Tartabull is the only player in recent memory who has come back at Age 33 and earned $10+ after missing a full campaign. Carter is probably a matter of level setting your expectations. In BA mixed leagues he's not an option at this point but I could see how in OBP leagues you might be losing patience as well. Feel free in mixed formats to find someone better; Carter isn't worth waiting out in non-keeper. Gentry is an AL-only play for stolen bases. If he's not hitting he's not even going to force his way into a platoon. In any other format - even deeper mixed - he was barely worthy to begin with. (Mike Gianella)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Realistic ceiling for Lewis Brinsonis, Chris Young or B.J. Upton?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
I really don't know yet.. It's very early. People love to comp Brinson to other black guys in baseball. He's just as likely to end up as the next Craig Gentry or Drew Stubbs. I think he is going to be a very good defensive center fielder, and I like the potential with the bat. He might not be a big average guy, but he has excellent raw pop. The full-season level will tell us more. Its still so early in the process. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Now that it appears the Rangers won't be adding any position players before the season, do you foresee a full-time role for Leonys Martin in center? Or will he split time with Craig Gentry? I assume Jurickson Profar will start the year in AAA. What about Mike Olt?
(Jon from Texas)
I think Gentry still gets some burn. He did well vs. LHP and his D is awesome. I think both start in AAA barring injuries. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Leonys Martin, thought?
(grandslam28 from Chicago)
I think he's got a shot to be a nice everyday center fielder. Guessing he'll push Craig Gentry for considerable playing time in short order, and is a big reason why the Rangers never became serious players for Michael Bourn. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has a better MLB career...Engel Beltre or Craig Gentry?
(EngelFan4LifeYo from Frisco)
EngelFan4LifeYo. Even odds that this is actually Engel Beltre (Jason Parks)
