BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)Next year I am closing for ___(insert team here)___.
(Greg Holland from KC)
You seem gritty. The Diamondbacks will probably trade Archie Bradley and Chris Owings for you in December. (Ben Carsley)
2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)I just picked up Chris Owings in my 10-team dynasty league with 40 man rosters. I know he was ranked highly (#28 I think?) in the preseason 101. Where does he rank in comparison to other young shortstops in a dynasty league? Does he have as much (or more) fantasy value as guys like Lindor, Anderson, Crawford, Mondesi, and Gordon?
(Chris from Washington, DC)
I'd rank him behind Lindor and above the rest. He's not flashy, but he'll do a little bit of everything for you 5x5 wise. (Ben Carsley)
2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us any possible breakout candidates for next season from a dynasty baseball league perspective?
(Jake from MI)
I hope A.J. Pollock gets healthy and gets another long look next year, he could be a 15/20 type of guy in that ballpark. Same with his teammate Chris Owings. Those two come quickly to mind. (Cory Schwartz)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dump E. Cabrera for Chris Owings? 12-team 5x5 keeper league.
(surista from London)
I'd do that unless SBs were a primary need... heck, I might just do it either way given how poor Everth been lately (Paul Sporer)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Has Chris Owings finally fallen into D-backs dregs or will he come out of his funk and compete for the RoY honors?
(Silverback38 from VA)
Don't give up on Owings. He's going through an adjustment period and I believe he'll come out of it fine. (Bret Sayre)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)I've been offered Yan Gomes for AJ Pierzynski and Chris Owings (RBI S HR AVG RUNS) H2h do you bite Mr. Carsley
(dancini from Pgh)
Yes. I think Gomes and AJ are roughly equivalent, and Owings is a great throw-in. I bite. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)I recently traded Chris Sales & Chris Owings for Eric Hosmer & A. Simmons. Did I overpay?
(jtwalsh from Northport, NY)
Well, before Sale got hurt it was closer, but we would have taken Hosmer and Simmons all along. Also, props on mastering the dark arts and injuring Chris Sale--as if White Sox fans could get more depressed. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)que pasa? 12 tm H2H categories 6X6 (hlds & OPS) keeper. at $1 each; Owings, Colabello, Blackmon, and Semien. Who will I drop first who will be on my team all year and who will I sign to a 3 year contract?
(Julio from San Antonio)
Que pasa compa, Charlie Blackmon is the guy I think you’re cutting first and I think you’ll have a very happy life with Chris Owings. He's growing on me in a very positive way and I think he might be able to contribute across all 5 offensive categories. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I own Brad Miller and Chris Owings in a dynasty league, no MI spot. Which one would you keep and which would you trade?
(Jimmy from Philly)
"Truck driver Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) and his friend, restaurant owner Wang Chi (Dennis Dun), go to the airport to pick up Wang's fiancee Miao Yin (Suzee Pai), who is arriving from China. A Chinese street gang, the Lords of Death, tries to kidnap another Chinese girl at the airport who is being met by her friend Gracie Law (Kim Cattrall), intending to sell her as a sex slave."

2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Also would like to thank you and the TINO guys as I grabbed Starlin Castro in my draft and hedged with Chris Owings in my supplemental draft due to your podcast I've got a nice backup for Starlin Castro-phe
(Dan from Pittsburgh)
I (and we) appreciate the kind words. If you (or anyone else - anyone? Bueller?) likes the pod, a rating and review on iTunes can go a long way. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of potential does Chris Owings have?
(Scott from Cali)
Everyday starter with a good bat and solid defense. Whether he reaches that potential is to be determined. The approach is a little concerning. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Chris Owings coming away with the SS job in Ari?
(dastard from ON)
If not on opening day then my Memorial day, yes. He's a better hitter and a good enough shortstop. Only reason he won't is because they want Didi to play every day and dont want to send him down. Owings is better though. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Chris Owings have the defensive chops to be a first-division regular at 2B/SS?
(Chad from Prospectville, USA)
Yes. Underrated on defense. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2014-01-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)Dustin Ackley or Chris Owings which has the better upside at the plate.
(Jim from Tampa)
I like Owings better, at least relative to the stands of his position. (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Chris Owings bat for this year? What might his numbers look like, and do you think he beats out Gregorious for the majority of the plate appearences?
(treynay3 from Indy)
I like Owings more than Gregorius and think he should beat him out. There's some upside with the bat but I'm not sure you'll see it consistently in 2014. I think he's going to struggle because of his approach, but his glove should be good enough to keep him in the lineup and let him secure the position long term. (Mark Anderson)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Chris Owings and the potential SS completion for the D-backs?
(Ben from Phoenix)
Really big fan and I hope they let him run with the position over Gregorius from a pure fantasy standpoint. He's not the defender Didi is, but I think he's a more complete player and would love to see his power play in that ballpark. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Re: Chris Owings - can you elaborate on the power you expect and the hit tool to get there?
(Trey from Greenville)
I just think he can hit for a decent amount of pop in that ballpark. He's not a home run hitter but he can make solid contact. He's not special at the plate but he hardly needs to be to be above-average for a shortstop (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Major and minor-league player you think are headed for a breakout.
(Pie from Somewhere)
On the minor league side I think Alberto Tirado will really light it up. In the majors, I think Chris Owings can be really interesting if he wins the job. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your way too early predicitions for Rookie of the Year in each league?
(JohnBotelho from Chestnut Hill, MA)
In the AL, I'll go with Yordano Ventura. I think he's going to surprise people in the rotation. In the NL, I'll go with Chris Owings. Not a star player, but easy role 5 (and perhaps more) that should produce at a premium spot. (Jason Parks)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Chris Owings? Obviously he had a great season in 2013 but will his plate discipline improve? Do you think we'll see him take the starting shortstop job from Didi this year?
(Todd from living room )
I think he's going to be a quality middle-infielder for a very long time. Maybe a Michael Young type, minus the pejorative connotations. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Just how valuable is a young, cheap, non-star shortstop like, say, Chris Owings? It seems like the market for shortstops is getting a bit crazy.
(jpaternostro from CT)
Extremely valuable. Hell of a player. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have between Chris Owings and Anthony Rendon, and by how great a margin?
(gerrybraun from sandiego)
Rendon, but that's in part due to familiarity, scouting lineage and the fact he's already put in a decent big league line at 23, while changing positions. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you trade Shelby or Martinez for Chris Owings if you were the Cardinals? Or would you rather trade more to get Profar?
(Sara from Greensboro)
I think Owings is a nice player and will have a lengthy MLB career, but I don't do that deal. If you truly believe you can hold out and put some package together for Profar, I think you have to do it. (Mark Anderson)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you rank these first-year 2b in order of who will have the best career? Kolten Wong, Scooter Gennett, Nick Franklin, Chris Owings, Wilmer Flores, Jonathan Schoop, Marcus Semien, Grant Green. Thank you.
(The Kernel from Pasadena)
Wong, Owings, Franklin, Schoop, Gennett, Semien, Flores, Green. (Jason Parks)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)Jimmy Nelson, Chris Owings, Brandon Workman, Tyler Skaggs, and Johnny Cueto just got traded for R.A. Dickey, Jonathan Papelbon, Cliff Lee, and Adam Dunn in my league. Not a fan of the veto so I wont veto this trade in my league, but just how lopsided is this for the side receiving Lee, Dickey, etc.?
(Gary from Georgia)
Hi Gary:

It depends on if your league has contracts or allows you to slot guys into rounds if you have a draft league. Cueto is a potentially strong keep assuming health and Skaggs has a nice ceiling. I've seen leagues where getting Cueto and Skaggs will net you four players, and it's not like Dickey or Dunn have been anything close to elite. It sounds like this is atypical for your league, though. The answer to these types of questions often depend more on your league culture than anything else. (Mike Gianella)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Z Borenstein R Liriano and C Owings? thanks
(Andy from WI)
Hi Andy:

Great numbers on Borenstein, but we're talking about a 23 year old in High-A ball. The numbers will get him to carry his clubs to the next course, but I'll be skeptical about a guy like this until he does it in the Majors. He's only a play in leagues with really deep reserve lists/farm systems.

Rymer Liriano? Great tools, but he's out for all of 2013, and from what I've heard he's not the kind of player a layoff helps out. 23 years old is not a good age to be trying to translate tools into skills.

Chris Owings has put up some silly numbers in the PCL but then it's a silly hitters' environment he's playing in. I'd like to see more plate discipline; I think MLB pitchers are going to expose him in this first go 'round; a sub 5% BB rate isn't a good indicator. You can't ignore the power/speed combo in fantasy though, and I've had concerns like this about other players where I've been dead wrong. (Mike Gianella)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Im in a 20 team dynasty league with a 5 man prospect roster. Staring me in the face on the waiver wire are Puello, Berrios, Stratton, and Eddie Butler. Would you add any of these guys over current guys on my roster Wilmer Flores, Chris Owings, Alen Hanson?
(Alec from Scottsdale, Az)
I really like Butler and Berrios, but I dont know anything about fantasy baseball so I'm not much help. If you want any advice about my fantasies for Tom Verducci, please re-submit. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Chris Owings fast start? Is he Josh Rutledge 2.0?
(Ryan from SLC)
Is being Josh Rutledge 2.0 a good thing or a bad thing? Owings can be a better baseball player and fantasy player than Rutledge. But then again, I am not a Rutledge fan. (Bret Sayre)
