BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do I really care about saves enough to keep rostering both Nate Jones and Daniel Webb? Drop one or both? (16team dynasty, 40 man rosters)
(Always Be Closing from Chicago)
Yes, in that type of league both players should be rostered. I think Jones is better, but Lindstrom can't be long for the role and there's always the chance Webb grabs the job next week and never looks back. So Webb. But it's a coin toss. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Looking for a speculative closer play. Who do you prefer among Nate Jones, Daniel Webb, Ryan Webb, LeCure, Hoover, Betances, Joba and Alburquerque?
(Jake from Kalamazoo)
Nate Jones with Daniel Webb and Betances a close second and third. Closers are kind of imploding league wide right now and it's a very unstable position. I think the situation in Chicago is going to be really murky even when Jones comes back. I don't believe in Lindstrom and I think Webb could get a look. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)How long before the White Sox switch closers?? Another closer question- does Santos keep the job or does Janssen get it back as soon as he's healthy? Thanks for the chat!!
(Gary from Chicago)
It's early to say anything with conviction obviously. It just came out that Nate Jones isn't 100% which is likely a factor in that situation. Sleeper on that team is Daniel Webb, though I think Belisario could do the job as well. I still think Jones gets the most saves at season's end. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nate Jones. interesting pick to lose the job. who's first up, lindstrom or dan webb?
(Jeremy from FL)
I want to guess Lindstrom, but the league doesn't seem to like him as much as outsiders do. So maybe Webb. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is there anyone worthwhile drafting on the Whitesox outside of Sale? Dunn? Eaton
(jlarsen from Chicago Suburbs)
I would've said De Aza but that's clogged now with Eaton. Ramirez is interesting at short, Garcia is a decent late round flier, Nate Jones will end up getting owned but I doubt he's draft worthy.

In short, yeah but it's not attractive. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)I just gave TINO 5 stars. Great stuff, even if it does have me agreeing with #Craij more often than I'd like. I have picks 2 and 4 in our dynasty draft this year (it's been going for about 6 years). Will have some combination of Tanaka, Abreu, Jean Segura, Danny Salazar and Nate Jones. I need saves, but the thought of taking Jones over any of those guys creeps me out. What's your personal pref list on those 5?
(Gotribe31 from DC)
Thank you for the rating, and it would be the cutest thing ever if everyone else could do the same! Segura, big gulf, Salazar, Tanaka, Abreu, big gulf, Jones. (Ben Carsley)
2014-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Two quick pitching questions please, who do you think will close for the Chisox and can Zach Britten be fixed? Thanks
(John from CT)
I'm a big Nate Jones fan. And I sure hope re: Britton. I love his stuff, but he has zero command right now. (Paul Sporer)
