BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)Who has the best beard in baseball amongst current MLB players?
(Turkey from Chicago, IL)
Having recently been dangerously close to it at Citi Field, Lucas Duda's facial hair situation is our new favorite. (Cespedes Family BBQ)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)In need of CI Help (AVG HR STEALS RBI RUNS) best available are: Mike Olt, Lonnie Chisenhall, David Freese, Lucas Duda, Marcus Siemen thank you and I hope the rest of my league RESTS IN PEACEEE
(the Undetaker from Death Valley)
It will never cease to amaze me how many smart people I follow on Twitter like wrestling. For 2014 only, I go Freese, Semien, Chisenhall, Olt, Duda. (Ben Carsley)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)There's a rumor the Mets plan to have Flores take reps at SS, dare I dream?
(anon from CA)
I wrote a whole article on this last week and got wholly ripped for saying I think it's a great idea. I don't know how much they'll do it, but I hope he plays there some.

Look, Flores will be a terrible major league shortstop, largely because he was a terrible minor league shortstop and now hasn't played the position in a few years. The Mets 2014 season, however, is basically 162 games of auditioning for 2015 when Matt Harvey returns. They need to see what they have in players like Ike Davis, Lucas Duda and Flores. Flores needs to get 400 at-bats this season. He'll get some at third, second and first, but as long as Davis, Duda, Murphy and others are still in town, he won't play there regularly. I think its worth dealing with some bad defense if it means getting him the AB's he needs to find out if he's an everyday hitter. If they can get him those at-bats somewhere else, then by all means do it. But I dont see it. You can't play him there every day because the pitchers will revolt, but 1-2 says per week at SS while also working him in at other positions seems like a good idea to me.

The Mets are going to be bad this year regardless. They might as well find out what they have in Flores to see if they can count on him for next year. (Jeff Moore)
2013-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is Lucas Duda?
(Dagny Taggart from Colorado)
Duda is a guy whose ISO at the end of the season will be much closer to last year's .150 than to this year's .355. Hopefully he won't deliver a long soliloquy in the process. (Geoff Young)
2013-02-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of this trade? 12 team NL Only keeper league 4X4 Kris Medlen $1 2014 for Edwin Jackson $3 2014 Freddie Freeman $10 option year Lucas Duda $1 option year
(grandslam28 from Chicago)
I like the general idea of trying to sell high on Medlen, but Freeman — whom I like as a breakout candidate — is the only player in that return package that really piques my interest. If you're going to move on from Medlen, I'd try to find a better secondary piece. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-12-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Completely Gratuitous 4-Team Blockbuster Trade Proposal: -Mets send R.A. Dickey to Red Sox, send Lucas Duda + Domingo Tapia to Indians & send Wilmer Flores to Diamondbacks -Red Sox send Archie Bradley + Anthony Ranaudo to Indians -Indians send Asdrubal Cabrera to Diamondbacks & send Shin-Soo Choo + Vinnie Pestano to Mets -Diamondbacks send Justin Upton to Mets Care to offer gratuitous thoughts?
(mattstupp from NYC)
Math makes my head hurt (Ian Miller)
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ben: Proposed: The Mets are the "village that had to be destroyed to save it". While there are, and there are coming, good arms, a team on which Lucas Duda is regarded as any kind of key offensive element needs to be torn down. What do you suggest? And is a deal for David Wright a bad idea at this time?
(BeplerP from New York)
I don't think it's definitely a bad idea in the abstract. It's only a bad idea if they overpay. It's not as if the Mets couldn't contend with a productive Wright making a reasonable amount of money. Then again, I don't know all the specifics of the Mets' financial situation, which is probably a good thing for my peace of mind. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-10-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming the Mets re-sign David Wright, what do you see as their biggest move the offseason? The starting pitching is probably already their, do they trade Murphy and look at Valdespin at 2B? Sign and trade for a outfielder? Simply add to the bullpen? What can Mets fans expect this offseason?
(deech from Long Island)
Tough to say what any team’s biggest move this offseason will be at this point, but I could see the Mets trading Murphy. I think they’ll move one of Ike Davis and Lucas Duda, as well. My money would be on Duda heading to an American League team. He’s tough to hide on defense and his bat isn’t good enough to just accept the defensive woes. They'll probably make a few other moves, too—I could see someone like J.P. Howell landing in that bullpen. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your top undervalued targets for NL only leagues this year?
(Senior from Lost in my mind)
Just had LABR NL this weekend, so I've got a bunch. Not all went for as low as I wanted, but how about: Michael Cuddyer, Lucas Duda, Jon Jay, Marlon Byrd, John Mayberry, Jose Altuve, Ryan Ludwick, Tyler Greene. None are sure things, obviously, but that's the nature of undervalued targets. In general, I think these guys will come cheaper than I'd pay for them (although that wasn't the case for Cuddyer, Duda, Mayberry, Byrd, and Altuve this weekend in a tough LABR crowd). (Derek Carty)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)Over/under on HRs for Lucas Duda this year: 24.5
(Matt from Madison, WI)
Duda is 26 years old, his season high as a pro is 23, and he plays in a tough park. I'll take the under. (Geoff Young)
2012-01-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)I know if've addressed him somewhere in the past, but is Lucas Duda legit? Will he play everyday (or nearly so) for the Amazin's this year?
(Kingpin from Grinnell, IA)
Totally legit, and yes. I really like his bat. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it fair to project Lucas Duda's 2011 stats over a full season and get excited for next year?
(Xavier from Texas)
It depends how you define “excited.” If you ask Rob McQuown, it probably doesn’t matter how you define it (sorry, Rob, I couldn’t resist), but for me, I think you need to be talking about an NL-only league. He’ll probably have enough value in 12-to-15 team mixed leagues to pique my interest, but to cause excitement, maybe not. His power and PT should be plenty good for NL-only, though. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any "sophomores" you like to break out this season
(moehk21 from NYC)
I like Ben Revere, Eric Thames, Lucas Duda, Cory Luebke, Danny Duffy, Henderson Alvarez all to various degrees. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will there be a worse defensive starting outfielder in 2012 than Lucas Duda? His range seems terrible and his arm might be worse. Could the Mets consider switching him with Bay so that he'd play left field and limit the exposure of his weak arm?
(mattstupp from NYC)
Now that Pat Burrell has retired? Duda is about as far from Tris Speaker as you can get, but I feel like this is not something the Mets really need to worry about right now. (Steven Goldman)
2011-12-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Lucas Duda's upside - decent starting OF?
(rjmoore from Boston)
Yup. I think the bat is legit. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)How feasible would a James Shields for Lucas Duda and Kirk Nuewenhuis trade be for the Mets and Rays? With Johan out, the Mets could use a guy like Shields and there's plenty of reason to believe Duda can be most of what Carlos Pena is/was.
(Matt from Whippleville, NY)
I have no idea. (Colin Wyers)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Lucas Duda? Late bloomer? Is this power for real? Can he be a Brian Giles-lite?
(andwoo from DC)
I'm not blowing him completely off, at least SOME of what you are seeing is real. (Kevin Goldstein)
