BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is there an upside to David Lough in Baltimore?
(OB1 from NYC)
You bet there is! If MLB changes their rules to allow only one person to use steroids and that one person is David Lough, then man, you're gonna see some stuff! Otherwise, maybe he can replicate his stats from last season (.311 OBP, .413 SLG). If he can do that without any rule changes he's a useful player. (Matthew Kory)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Any sleepers in the OF? That's area that seems thin this season
(Mike from over there)
Depends on how deep your league is. In really deep leagues, David Lough in the AL and Andrew Lambo in the NL are examples of deep, deep sleepers I'd target. (Mike Gianella)
