BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)Better young outfield now and in the future. Gregory Polanco, Andrew McCutchen and Starling Marte vs. Marcell Ozuna, Christian Yelich and Gincarlo Stanton?
(Drew from Rockford, IL)
Pirates now, maybe Marlins next year, Pirates after that. Because are we to assume Stanton stays in Miami? Because with five bazillion trade rumors in the last two years, one of 'em's gotta be true. (Matt Sussman)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty league, which side you got? Chris Sale + Kris Bryant + Marcell Ozuna or Gregory Polanco + Anthony Rendon + Christian Yelich
(John Johnson from Wisconsin)
Sale/Bryant/Ozuna on the strength of the first two. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Marcell Ozuna here to stay fantasy wise or flash in the pan?
(Drew from Rockford, IL)
I think he's here to stay, but I've been a sucker for his type in the past. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Marcell Ozuna? He was rushed to the bigs and wasn't considered a polished player to start with, but he looks like he's getting his feet under him. Is that ballpark and lineup enough to keep him down from a fantasy perspective?
(birdzfan52 from Baltimore)
Very talented, but I bet the lack of polish/experience gets to him at some point this year. I've likened him to The Good Josh Reddick before #interracialcomps and I'm going to stick with that for now. Exciting player, but I don't think he's a finished product, despite his nice start. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Marcell Ozuna worth snatching?
(Lona Misa from The Projects)
Truly depends on the league parameters. Assuming a 10-12 team vanilla league, I'll opt out. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any top-tier prospects not panning out like we all think they may, due to something like organizational mismanagement? Sometimes, I think the Phillies messed around with Dom Brown too much and he's currently closer to his floor than his ceiling (minus last May).
(Kevin from Penn)
I'm with you that the Phillies did Brown no favors. As a prospect guy, one of my biggest pet peeves is yo-yo-ing a guy back and forth or calling him up and letting him rot on the bench. The Phillies did both to Brown. It's hard to predict organizational mismanagement, but history shows us that the Marlins are always an odds-on favorite to do something wacky, like they did last year by calling up Marcell Ozuna or Jake Marksnick way too early. (Jeff Moore)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Marcell Ozuna? Do you think he starts this year and what's your projection for him? Long-term projection? Thanks.
(matt from MI)
I think he is talented but will never get to make the most of it because the Marlins have handled him poorly. He will probably be one of their starting outfielders this season and should probably in Triple-A. Or, he wouldn't need to be in Triple-A this year if they had left him there last year. The guy only got 10 (!) total games above A-ball in his minor league career despite being seen as a raw prospect. I hate the way they've handled him, though most of it was probably coming from Loria. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)what do you think is the most interesting position battle this spring in terms of fantasy impact.
(higgsboson from guelph)
I want to see what happens in the Marlins outfield. Brian Bogusevic really intrigues me as a deep league power/speed sleeper, and Christian Yelich might start in the minors but could also get the call. Marcell Ozuna is kind of underrated in deeper leagues as well. There are a lot of non-Giancarlo Stanton options in this outfield who could provide fantasy impact or not depending on how the battles shake out. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a fit of off-season boredom, I traded Marcell Ozuna for Brad Peacock. Now, I'm trying to remember why I did it. Help me out here, I don't want to sound like an idiot when the rest of the league comes back.
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
That's a sharp deal. Look at Peacock from August on when he added a slider. He was very good. Small sample, but there was a discernible change. (Paul Sporer)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Power-hitting prospects Marcell Ozuna and Oswaldo Arcia didn't really do very much last year, and now they find themselves in outfields that are filling up. Do either of them step up and claim a spot in 2014?
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
Ozuna shouldn't have been in MLB last year, and frankly, I'm not sure he's ready to be this year. I think he can grab a spot in 2015. Arcia should have a spot and should be let to develop in that spot this year while the Twins aren't really in contention. (Mark Anderson)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I must have been bored out of my mind, because I just realized I traded Marcell Ozuna for Brad Peacock. Is there any way to spin this so I don't get laughed out of my league?
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
Sure. There's a good chance Ozuna doesn't see playing time in the near future thanks to Yelich/Marisnick/Stanton (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who begins the year as the Marlin's starting centerfielder? Who ends the year as the Marlin's starting centerfielder?
(Paul from DC)
I think it could be Marcell Ozuna if he's healthy to start the season, but I think it's Jake Marisnick by season's end. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which do you think will have the best career? Marcell Ozuna, Jake Marisnick, Michael Choice, Khris Davis? And can you rank the 4 for career? Thanks!
(TheKernel from Pasadena)
I would take Marisnick.

Marisnick, Choice, Ozuna, Davis (Jason Parks)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank: Avisail Garcia, Oswaldo Arcia, Marcell Ozuna?
(Felipe from Mexico)
Arcia, gap, Garcia, Ozuna. (Bret Sayre)
2013-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Marcell Ozuna come back in 2014 and grab a starting OF position away from Yelich or Marisnick if Stanton is still around?
(sjdigio from Chicago)
I discounted him once, and he burned me early on. But long-term I think the best bets are Yelich and Marisnick. (Jason Parks)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Marcell Ozuna beating out Yelich or Marisnick for a starting OF spot for the Marlins next year if Stanton is still around?
(Steve from Chicago)
Yes. Marisnick has excellent talent, but he's flat-out not ready. I understood Yelich, but the Marisnick call-up was a head scratcher to me. (Jason Cole)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best to worst short term NL only keeper (2014-15)... Todd Frazier, Marcell Ozuna, Jedd Gyorko?
(Broken Arrow from Texas)
I think I'd flip the order. Jerk & Ozuna have the upside. Frazier is a WYSIWYG which is fine, but I'd rather gamble on the bigger payoff. (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Just snagged Marcell Ozuna in my NL only keeper league - what do you expect from him for now, and down the road?
(pbsenerchia from DC)
Mark Anderson and Brey Sayre just published a piece that should help you out: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=20419 (R.J. Anderson)
2013-03-27 20:00:00 (link to chat) Will Marcell Ozuna get his chance? It looks like that will be a pretty crowded outfield with Yelich and Marisnick in the next couple of years.
(Mitchell Rembold from Iowa)
He's going to need to keep proving that he can make contact as he makes his way up the chain. If he does what he's capable of, they'll make a spot for him. (Bret Sayre)
2013-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's the better prospect: Avisail Garcia or Marcell Ozuna? Which one has a better chance at becoming an all-star in the big leagues? Thanks!
(Cole from St. Louis)
They're the same. Obviously they're not really, but there is no known data to suggest we know one way or the other. (Those are the worst kind of answers but they're my favorite.) If I had to pick I'd pick Ozuna because I was tweeting jokes at Garcia's expense during the postseason last year and so I'd like those tweets not to look hysterically misguided ever. (Sam Miller)
