BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 20 team dynasty league. We're allowed to protect 20 players from our 25 man roster yearly. I can protect only two of the following relievers, Brad Ziegler, Shae Simmons, Kevin Quackenbush, John Holdzkom, Hunter Strickland, Jeremy Affeldt, and RJ Alvarez. Which should I keep for next year?
(John from MD)
Again, I'd recommend shooting this one at our fantasy guys in their next chats, but I'd go with Quackenbush and Strickland. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is the Padres magic in building pens of amazing potency likely to continue as they move the fences in? Could we see monsters out there like Cashner and eventually Quackenbush setting up STreet in 2013?
(J.A. from MN)
This is a fascinating question and a real concern. The Padres have done well building cheap bullpens and filling in the back of their rotations with guys who might not have succeeded in other venues. Those days may be gone. Kevin Quackenbush and Matthew Stites are two guys who looked good in the AFL and could force their way into the picture before long. I have no idea what's up with Cashner other than the fact that he can't stay healthy. He could be a stud starter, a stud closer, or absolutely nothing. (Geoff Young)
2012-07-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)A sleeper you like in the Padres system?
(Corey from San Diego)
Is Jace Peterson considered a sleeper? I like his skill set. Middle infielders who can hit near the top of the lineup are always useful. Vince Belnome could develop into a utility player. A couple of right-handers at Lake Elsinore, Matt Andriese and Burch Smith, are intriguing. Ditto Matthew Wisler at Fort Wayne. Kevin Quackenbush is a reliever but might be something. (Geoff Young)
