BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me your opinion of the following fantasy baseball trade. (Context: 20 teams, one team is competing while the other rebuilding). Cliff Lee for Jimmy Nelson, Andrew Heaney, and John Holdzkom. Is that an overpay for the amount of risk or fair return for Lee? Thanks.
(Mike from NY)
Lee's stock is pretty low, I'd probably take this deal if you're intent on trading him. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)What late season call ups might go from unknown to on the map this post season (like K-Rod in 2002)?
(mdotmorris22 from Minnesota)
This is a good one with which to kick off.

There are a handful of relievers who I think could jump onto the radar in the same way. If the NL wild-card game is tight, both Hunter Strickland (SFG) and John Holdzkom (PIT) could play a big role, with the fact that the Pirates designated Strickland for assignment to make room for Jonathan Sanchez providing a humorous twist. Holdzkom is certainly the one who's jumped out of nowhere, from Indy ball earlier this year to a high-leverage role in a playoff bullpen. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 20 team dynasty league. We're allowed to protect 20 players from our 25 man roster yearly. I can protect only two of the following relievers, Brad Ziegler, Shae Simmons, Kevin Quackenbush, John Holdzkom, Hunter Strickland, Jeremy Affeldt, and RJ Alvarez. Which should I keep for next year?
(John from MD)
Again, I'd recommend shooting this one at our fantasy guys in their next chats, but I'd go with Quackenbush and Strickland. (Daniel Rathman)
