BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dee Gordon's likely to be sustained next year, and if so would he be worth keeper over Gregory Polanco?
(Colin from Milwaukee)
He can probably sustain most of it. A few years ago I would have warned against Gordon as a dangerous candidate because of his OBP risk, but with offense down in general I think teams can carry a 300 OBP guy if he's a weapon like Gordon. For Roto, I'd definitely go Gordon over Polanco (in real life I'd obviously rather have Polanco, hands down). (Mike Gianella)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dee Gordon's performance to date sustainable?
(JasonPennini from Denver)
They are now that he's hitting in the .290's. They weren't when he was hitting .340. He's a nice player and there's a reason he was a top prospect. Sometimes it just takes some time. Remember Dee Gordon when we see other top prospects struggle. He went back down, shifted positions, and turned himself into a good second baseman. Not a bad way to go about things. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)In a 12 team standard roto dynasty league, would you trade Baez, Bauer, and Stroman for Longo and D. Gordon. Really need the SB's but already have A-Ram and Lawrie. Is Longo really worth all that?
(USA!!! from USA!!!)
Why don't you ask harder questions? Goodness. My immediate reaction is no, as I'm not sold that Dee Gordon is more than a platoon bat going forward. A productive one, to be sure, but still a platoon bat. However, I'm waffling a bit, as I think Bauer has huge question marks and is far from a sure thing. If you're "going for it" this year, I can see the move. I really can. Longo is a beast. It would just be hard to give up on Baez for me -- as previously stated, he's a top-5 fantasy prospect for me, and still should be for you. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is trading Joey Votto for Dee Gordon straight up giving too much? I need 2B help (have Zobrist) and I need stolen bases. My 1B is Rizzo and my 1B/3B is filled by VMart
(hamsterjockey from DC)
Yeah, that's too much. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are you a believer in Dee Gordon? Has his approach/skill set improved enough to explain the start he's had or is this just an example of small sample size? Can you see him being their everyday 2B still three years from now?
(Jape82 from Ottawa, ON)
I briefly touched on Dee Gordon here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=23920

And, no, I see Dee Gordon as a platoon bat. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Dee Gordon's long awaited development into a major league regular have any impact whatsoever on Nick's draft status? Does it give teams a little more to dream on, now that Dee looks like (for two months, anyway), a solid major league 2B.
(Flash from Texas)
Their games aren't really similar, nor is their physical makeup, so it's unlikely the developmental path of one will much affect opinions on the other. Nick is a more refined player is more physical than his brother, with a lot less speed. (Draft Day Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)In a 12 team roto dynasty, would you trade Shields for Dee Gordon? I have 1.5pts in SBís and doing very well in pitching. Projected 16 over my starts and Iím sitting in 4th. About 10 points out. Should I see if heíll throw in Kaz or Wheeler or just do the deal to fill the need? Thanks.
(Edwin's from On Fire)
If you can get Wheeler back, definitely. If you can get Kaz back, probably. If it's straight up, I'd look for cheaper speed elsewhere. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-07 17:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dee Gordon for real?
(Scott from AZ)
He's not going to hit .350 or whatever it is he's hitting, but he will get on base enough to steal a lot of bases and be a Roto force. (Mike Gianella)
2014-05-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Dee Gordon keep the second base job or is he just on a hot streak?
(Scott from AZ)
I think that Alexander Guerrero could force himself into the starting lineup if his defense improves to a passable state, but that could take awhile, by which time I expect that Gordon will have turned back into a pumpkin. (Doug Thorburn)
2014-05-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)So in other words sell high on Dee Gordon?
(Scott from AZ)
I would. Guerrero has a .305/.379/.576 in AAA, though its Albuquerque - where Miguel Olivo has an 1100 OPS. (Doug Thorburn)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Bonifacio, Brad Miller, and Dee Gordon are my 2B/SS options. I picked them all up, but not sure who to start on a daily basis. Also, one of them are going to be dropped when Latos comes off the DL. Of the 3, who should I drop?
(Joe from NY)
I'd bet Bonifacio regresses first and is who you should drop. Right now, Miller is who I'd keep out of daily lineups. Also, Brad Miller best shortstop in AL joke. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Dee Gordon playing well and Alex Guerrero ripping PCL pitching, is there a chance that Guerrero could move to 3B long term? Juan Uribe obviously deserves to keep his job for now, but he is old and there is no way he's a long term solution.
(Ryan from Land of Eternal Sunshine (LA))
It could happen, but for now they'll stick with Dee and Uribe. Obviously they paid Guerrero to be an impact player. For now, they have to like how the situation is shaping up. (Paul Sporer)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alex Guerrero has started like a rocket.He needs time to show his range and glove.He must be equal to Dee Gordon. Doubtful Dee will stay in this groove much longer.Do you feel he is Major league ready?
(Chesty from New Bern NC)
If Guerrero's not MLB ready, then the decision to give him that kind of money seems a little odd. I think he is being given an acclimation period in the minor leagues and he will be up as soon as injuries strike or Dee Gordon goes back to being the Dee Gordon of old. (Mark Anderson)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike, love the position rankings and appreciate them coming out early this year. Since some have been out a while are there any rankings that you would really like to change based on something you've seen in the Spring (like an injury perhaps)? Thanks.
(DanDaMan from Sea Cliff)
Hi Dan.

I reflect the changes in my bid limits that I update every week (including today! http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=23036). Today, I moved Joakim Soria up and Neftali Feliz down and moved Alexander Guerrero down and Dee Gordon up. Kris Medlen is out while Ervin Santana is in in the National League. Check out the rankings for all the latest movers and shakers. (Mike Gianella)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Need a shortstop in NL-only deep dynasty league, traditional 5x5, and options are running slim: Gregorious, Furcal, Hechavarria, Dee Gordon, Ruben Tejada, Freddy Galvis, Haveabananarama. Not a rebuilding team, should compete this year, but did not keep Gregorious.
(Greg from KC)
Gordon is the guy I'd take a flier on at the moment. OBP risk and could flame out again but he has the upside. Furcal and Gregorius are the next two players on my list but - as you point out - this is a deep NL-only so the options are unsurprisingly uninspiring. (Mike Gianella)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dee Gordon a better hitter than Billy Hamilton? Dee plays a more "premium" fantasy position so can he be more valuable?
(chri521 from NY)
No. Amazingly, Gordon actually has *less* power than Hamilton, hard as that is to do. Neither has any power, but Hamilton's speed translates into doubles and triples, while Gordon's hasn't. Sure he's bulked up, but I need to see it first. And Hamilton is faster. If Gordon wins the 2B job, he won't hold onto it for long. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Gut feeling on Billy Hamilton? Vince Coleman or Dee Gordon?
(Chad from Akron, OH)
Vince Coleman (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Seems like everyone was praising Dee Gordon's new patience at the plate last week. But how long will they stick with the recent string of 0-fers with a walk thrown in every now and then not to mention erratic defense?
(Scott from LA)
He is who we thought he was. It's not like they have any other options at this point though. (Jason Collette)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who gets more steals this year: Dee Gordon or Michael Bourn? And who should I play at 2B: Everth Cabrera or Matt Carpenter?
(Mark from Ky.)
Bourn/Carp (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see the Dodgers bringing up Dee Gordon again soon and living with his defensive growing pains to try and ignite the offense?
(Scott from LA)
Here's a scary thought: Justin Sellers has a 57 OPS+ this season in 71 plate appearances. Last season Dee Gordon had a 56 OPS+ in 330 plate appearances. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Could you please advise if billy hamilton would be worth keeping in a 14 team dynasty rotisserie league? Will he ever hit and be able to get on base to steal those bases OR is he a sell high candidate? Thank you for answering this question.
(Ambrose from Boston, Ma)
Yes and yes. In a roto dynasty league, Hamilton is extremely valuable. He had a .400+ OBP last year in the minors, so he's got a better chance at putting that speed to use than someone like Dee Gordon. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dee Gordon a viable option as an everyday SS? It seems like a good time to make him the starter even he doesn't offer much more than speed and some promise in the field.
(Josh from Seattle)
I've never been that high on Gordon, but I do recognize what he can bring to the table. He has serious speed and he can pick it at a premium position, so you can find a home for that. I don't believe in the bat, but when you have a potent lineup around him, you can survive without his offensive contribution. (Jason Parks)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on BIlly Hamilton? Will he eventually steal close to 100 bags in the majors?
(Luke from MN)
In total or in a single season? First, he has to learn to play CF. I worry about pure-play, no-power speedsters like him, which is why I was down on Dee Gordon last year, but Hamilton is such an extreme case that it's hard to see him NOT having some type of Major League job at some point, even if it's as a 5th OF/pinch-runner. If Tony Campana can have a Big League career, Billy Hamilton sure can! (Cory Schwartz)
2013-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think at some point this year we see Dee Gordon come around?
(Garcia from Houston)
If by come around you mean show up at the park, yes. If you mean play baseball well, I'll go with no. (Matthew Kory)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Dee Gordon wins the SS job in Spring Training and keeps it throughout the entire season?
(Nathan from LA)
Hey Nathan, thanks for joining us. Gordon doesn't cost enough to start for the Dodgers. Less facetiously, he doesn't hit enough to start for anyone. I still can't believe he knocked a home run last year. The guy is a great athlete, but a team that has invested so heavily in the present doesn't figure to have much patience for youthful mistakes, such as the inability to handle big-league pitching on a consistent basis. (Geoff Young)
2012-07-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking ahead, who are your Top 5 SS for next season? (And, if you feel like it, Top 5 CF as well)
(sitdancer from DC)
Right now, I'd rank the shortstops
1- Troy Tulowitzki
2- Jose Reyes
3- Starlin Castro
4- Elvis Andrus
5- Ian Desmond

I struggled to rank 3-5, and an argument could be made for shuffling them up in any order. Hanley Ramirez could throw a wrench into these rankings if he sees time at SS in Dee Gordon's absence. As for the CF position, I'm much less comfortable ranking them at the moment. Matt Kemp has missed time due to injury, as has Jacoby Ellsbury. Josh Hamilton has been streaky as hell, and I just want to see a bit more from others. As it stands, though, my top 3 would be Trout, Kemp, McCutchen in that order. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Dee Gordon: buy-low guy in fantasy, or might the hit tool always be this bad? I know all the standard qualifications about sample size, but I need to make a decision here. Please answer. I'll be your best friend.
(Henry from Minneapolis, MN)
I'd be VERY tempted to buy low. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-04-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)In a 12 team mixed H2H league. 26 man 6x6 scoring. I have Jose Reyes and Dee Gordon, Gordon doesn't see much time, and I need SP help. What should I expect in return for Reyes and what for Gordon? I have been told for Reyes a top tier SP + B bat/B arm...people have scoffed at such offers though. Thinking Gordon could get Lohse type pitcher. Thoughts?
(MartinRiggs from Toronto)
OK, I'm really not much of a fantasy guy, but I'm learning. Reyes is a huge talent and plays in a big market. You very well could get some real pitching talent for him. As for Gordon, it probably depends on how desperate/smart the other people in your league are. I'd stay away from Lohse though. He's been excellent this year, but nobody, not Roy Halladay or Justin Verlander, is as good as he's been. (Matthew Kory)
2012-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Dee Gordon is trending up in mocks. With me drafting 8th I got no shot at Tulo. I don't want to reach for Dee, so give me a good 10th to 15th round starting SS.
(TJ from So Cal)
The youngsters are going sky high in auctions and drafts this month. Wait 30 picks after Gordon is taken and grab Bonifacio who is good for 25-30 steals (Jason Collette)
2012-03-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)O/U on Dee Gordon steals is 50. What side do you bet?
(TJ from So Cal)
I was about to say the under, just on the impression that he'll need to get used to the league a little more, etc. But then I looked again at his stats. He stole 24 bases in 224 ABs last year. If he can get 500-600 PAs and maybe up that OBP a bit (it was .325 last year), 50 seems like no sweat for the kid. I might take the over now. (Larry Granillo)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dee Gordon the real deal? Where does he fit in in a dynasty draft?
(Chad from Pasadena)
Yes, I like Gordon. Great speed, good hitting. I don't play dynasty leagues, but I'd think he belongs in the top 7-10 rounds. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keeper question: if you had to choose one, would it be Aybar at $5 or Dee Gordon at $8? thanks.
(Sam from Cincy)
I'm not sold on Gordon's ability to get on base consistently in the big leagues. He'll give you some steals, but so will Aybar, who's a bit more well-rounded. I haven't played fantasy in years, and I've never played in a keeper league, so I don't have a great feel for dollar values, but former BP fantasy guru Marc Normandin informs me that $8 is an awful lot for Gordon. So, if I had to choose one, I suppose it would be Aybar.--Ben (Best of BP with Ben and Dave)
2011-12-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)What would you estimate for the number of times out of 100 the threesome of Dee Gordon, Jemile Weeks, and Jose Altuve has more productive careers than the threesome of Ruben Tejada, Johnny Giavotella, and Kyle Seager?
(goiter6 from MN)
98. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-10-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Turkey tamale? Sounds pretty disgusting, actually. Did Dee Gordon's performance following his recall (.348/.371/.413 with 15 sbs) give you any reason to reconsider your take on his future potential?
(Silv from NY, NY)
He's going to make contact, but I question if that's going to be it. Tons of speed and great hands, which should allow for batting average. But he lacks strength so I question his projections at the plate. Is he an empty .290-.300 hitter with speed and defensive chops? Not a bad outcome, but I think some people projected more. Perhaps he will get there. I'm not sold. (Jason Parks)
2011-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)The pool of available fantasy shortstops (especailly in the NL with HanRam and Drew hurt), is horribly shallow. Any thoughts on sleeper, breakout, under-the-radar guys for next year's auction?
(Kingpin from Grinnell, IA)
I haven't started digging too deep yet, but I like the potential of Trevor Plouffe in Minnesota, and I have a hard time believing his teammate Nishioka is this bad. Even Casilla is a decent deep play. In the NL, Chase D'Arnaud is interesting if he gets a chance to start, particularly for his speed. Dee Gordon is an even better play but is more well-known. (Derek Carty)
2011-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did the Dodgers show their faith in Dee Gordon by promoting Ivan De Jesus, Jr? (by the way, when else has one son of a former player been promoted over the son of another former player?)
(mef from Brooklyn)
Gordon isn't ready. The glove flashes, but its not consistent and I question the long-term potential of the bat. He just lacks strength and I don't see where its going to come from. (Jason Parks)
