BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-03-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is more likely to maintain 2014 production: J.D. Martinez or Steve Pearce?
(cgoble from KC)
Martinez, but obvious caveat is obvious. (Sam Miller)
2014-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which player's breakout is more likely to be for real and which one (if any) is a one year wonder: Lucas Duda or J.D. Martinez?
(Liam from KC)
Hi, Liam. I actually believe in both of these breakouts. The swing adjustments that J.D. Martinez made, profiled here by Ryan Parker (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=24239) seem legit, and Duda does so much damage against right-handed pitchers that a little deflation from lefties won't knock him down too much. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)12 team roto dynasty league. Standard 5x5 keep whole roster. Guy wants give me Bogaerts and Archie Bradley for Baez. Do I have to do this? Fluctuating between 1st and 2nd right now. Already have D. Gordon, Dozier, and Utley. Only Hanley at SS. Would probably drop Calhoun, J.D. Martinez, Duda, or C.J. Wilson.
(Scott from SC)
Pull the trigger. Baez won't have a good WHIP for the rest of the year. (Cespedes Family BBQ)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)J.D. Martinez or Alex Gordon ROS?
(Tino from NY)
Alex Gordon, and at the end of the season, I'm not so sure that it's even close. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Given J.D. Martinez's recent hot streak, what's a range of names that I should to get if I am trying to "sell high?"
(Zim from Telluride)
Completely depends on your roster construction, what past trades have looked like in your league, and whether it's a dynasty or re-draft league. My apologies on being obtuse, but it's too difficult to offer concrete help on something like this, unless I had more context and info. If I'm an opposing fantasy owner, I'm not paying much for J.D. Martinez whatsoever. I might kick the tires and hope the price is low, but I'm not giving up much. (J.P. Breen)
