BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can you tell me a few prospects, outside the Top 101, with the highest upside for fantasy? Thanks for the chat!
(cracker73 from Florida)
Bobby Bradley, Cornelius Randolph, Kevin Newman (credit to Keith Law for nailing that on his preseason list), Frankie Montas. ANd I'm going out on a limb here, but I still like Carson Fulmer despite his atrocious walk rate. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Name 3 prospect hitters that you believe will break out and 3 prospect pitchers that you believe will break out. Both cannot be on BP's top 101 list.
(Bill Clinton from Las Vegas)
Hitters: Cornelius Randolph (I own him in my NL-only league), Bobby Bradley, Christian Arroyo (honorable mention to Dan Vogelbach)

Pitchers: Carson Fulmer, Tyler Jay, Frankie Montas (honorable mention to Franklyn Kilome) (Scooter Hotz)
2015-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)The White Sox system has been a mess for years now. Besides guys like Tim Anderson, Spencer Adams, and Carson Fulmer, is it really improving at all?
(Justin from Chicago, IL)
Well, the depth is still pretty awful, but lets remember that this system didn't have guys like that three years ago, so yes, it's improving. They've done a better job in the draft, they're starting to explore the international market more (Frankie Montas is in that group for me, as well) and these are good things. There's just a long way to go. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-13 14:30:00 (link to chat)Other than the marquee guys in today's game, name a player on the field today who WILL and WON'T reach their potential.
(Bart Bennison from Primantis)
Ketel Marte is a prospect that does not receive enough love. And he plays up the middle. It's an easy profile to like.

Frankie Montas has a huge arm, but how many guys throwing 100 mph end up in a rotation? It's just hard to command that type of velo and many don't get away with it. He's a backend RP for me in the long-run, and that's not a knock on him by any means. - Tucker Blair (Futures Game Chat)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Does Francellis Montas end up a SP or RP?
(SK from Boston)
I think he ends up a RP, yeah, but I haven't seen him in person. Better question for our talented prospect team. (Ben Carsley)
