BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-10-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)Doug thanks for the chat. What are your thoughts on two of the Pirates best pitching prospects Tyler Glasnow and Nick Kingham?
(jsdspud from My Desk)
Glasnow has great momentum and a very deep release point that allows his stuff to play up. UIt can be difficult for young players to corral such impressive energy, so it could take a bit longer for him to reach ceiling, but he should be very deceptive along the way. I haven't watched as much of Kingham yet, but from what I have seen he has good stability and a strong baseline of mechanics, though his repetition still needs work.

On the jukebox: Iron Maiden, "Can I Play with Madness" (Doug Thorburn)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)I'm contemplating a fantasy trade in a 20 team dynasty league. Would milb pick 16 + Nick Kingham be fair value for CJ Wilson or should I be asking for more?
(Alex from Toronto)
I think that's there. Don't think you can ask for too much more. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Nick Kingham? What's his ceiling in the majors?
(Jake from Minneapolis)
Mid-rotation starter. He'll spend the rest of the year in Triple-A then get a mid-season call up after the super two deadline. The Pirates blueprint down to a science at this point. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Who wins this trade in a dynasty: Jason Heyward & Tyson Ross OR Cole Hamels, Starling Marte, Nick Williams, and Nick Kingham?
(Dynasty Trade from Tradeville USA)
I think Ross is poop so give me the second side. Nick Williams might not know left from right field but he can hit. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Am I better off keeping Taillon for next year in this dynasty league (12 teams, 7 prospects max) or going after someone who might be available? Any potential sleeper fantasy prospects I should look at?
(Chris from SF)
Id keep Taillon. Hes still better than the sleeper options available in the long run. Nick Kingham is a name that keeps popping up but he has limited upside. The rest of the sleeper cast has limited upside, I think. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)% Chance of Nick Kingham being in the starting rotation next year ?
(Jim from Pittsburgh)
I think he'll be in the rotation at some point next year. I have my doubts that they'd run him out there on Opening Day. (Mark Anderson)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Brett, First off, thanks for all the Fantasy stuff over the last 3 months - loved all of it, and the 'Resources' page is utter genius. It's turned BP into my 'go to' source in prepping for all my drafts. Anyway got a Prospect question for you - what impact, if any, do you expect Nick Kingham, Chi Chi Gonzalez and Kevin Gausman to have in the Majors this year? Cheers, Daff
(Daff38 from Sheffield, UK)
I'd be surprised if Kingham or Gonzalez see much more than emergency duty in the majors, but Gausman should hold down a role for the O's and if they're doing it right, it'll be one in the starting rotation. (Bret Sayre)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kolten Wong, ready to live up to expectations, recieves 500 at bats in St. Louis Gregory Polanco up in the Burgh by mid April? Tyler Glasnow up late this season? Thanks for the chat, regardless if you get to this question, always enjoy the knowledge as you answer any question in general
(Dragonbreath from Gurnee, IL)
Just to break these up a little:

Wong should be fine, but the playing time estimate might be on the optimistic side. It wouldn't shock me if they platoon him with Mark Ellis, at least early on.

I doubt Polanco is up before mid-June. The Pirates have every financial reason to play the Super Two game with him. As with Glasnow, I'd lean toward not this year. You figure Jameson Taillon is in line ahead of him, and likely Nick Kingham as well. Add in some of the other bit arms the Pirates have, and I just don't see a clear path to the majors for him this season. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank Adalberto Mejia, Nick Kingham, Lewis Thorpe, and Vincent Velazquez?
(Victor from Dumfries)
- Kingham, Mejia, Thorpe and Velazquez. I like Kingham's profile. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you expect Nick Kingham to take his game to another level?
(sportznut from Clinton Township, MI)
It is much, much later than I expected to be returning to this chat, but as promised, I am back after some significant issues required my attention...I return with a glass of Four Roses Small Batch and just enough energy to knock out a few more questions.

I think Kingham is a fine prospect with impressive potential. He's already broken out for those that pay attention, but he could emerge as a more popular national name throughout the 2014 season. (Mark Anderson)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Major league ETA for Nick Kingham and his ceiling?
(DS from LA)
I think Kingham will be in the majors in the middle of next year and he is going to be a workhorse number 3 starter. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nick Kingham has been pretty impressive in AA so far as a 21 year old, what's his ceiling and when does he make the Pirates rotation?
(redguy12588 from Pittsburgh)
our prospect guys like him as a back-end starter who could be more of a middle rotation workhorse if he progresses enough on his secondary pitches. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a Pirates fan, I am thrilled but not surprised at the emergence of Tyler Glasnow and Nick Kingham. With the two of them along with Cole/Taillon and Luis Heredia, is there any other team that can match the Pirates impact pitching in the minors?
(James from Morgantown)
A ton of Pirates questions on here already from both Pittsburgh and West Virginia, and I think it's a good time to say I was probably too low on Pittsburgh in terms of their future. I wrote in the beginning that they were in danger of wasting McCutchen's prime, and while that's still true, I'm encouraged by their start and the performance of some of the young players. The key will be whether they'll need to pay full price to fill holes in the rotation after Wandy/Burnett leave since they got them on discounts in trades.

If those guys can form a rotation, then the Pirates are in terrific shape going forward. That's probably more a question for our prospects guys - I'd think the Cardinals are up there too.

But the Pirates have done a really good job taking care of business in a stretch of schedule with lots of Brewers, Cubs and Astros in it. The next stretch is critical with the Tigers, Reds and Braves, but they could emerge from that in position to give Pittsburgh a fun summer. (Zachary Levine)
2013-05-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you prefer Nick Kingham or Tyler Galsnow?
(Parker from Texas )
Do I have to pick? Glasnow (Jason Parks)
