BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-16 23:00:00 (link to chat)Are you buying Travis Shaw?
(Mook from Redwood)
Yes with a bullet. I think he's hitting over his head slightly, but the swing's perfect for Fenway and the doubles production is legit in that park. He's been a poor-but-valid defender at third, but he's one of those rat types that can play above his tools through force of will. Wouldn't be surprised if he can improve into average range with the glove over time. I've long been a fan from afar, digging that he's doing it now.

It's time to get serious now. Time to get down to bidniss: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA1vYeK8Who (Wilson Karaman)
2016-05-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Mr. Gianella, what are your thoughts on Travis Shaw? Should I be believing in his performance? Top 10 3B? Thanks
(Leonard from None of Your Business)
He's not going to be THIS great but I can buy him as a Top 10 guy going forward. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)The following names aren't necessarily exciting....but in what order would you rank Trayce Thompson, Travis Shaw, Patrick Kivlehan and Tyler Goeddel for a dynasty league? Would there be a standout if just looking for potential current year impact? Cheers
(markdavo4 from Australia)
In dynasty, Shaw, Kivlehan, Goeddel, and Thompson. For 2016 only Goeddel has an opportunity now that Aaron Altherr is out for most if not all of the season and could be the guy to take a big leap forward. (Mike Gianella)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can Travis Shaw win a starting job this season?
(Mark from B-More)
No. He's a really nice bench piece to have but he's not the player he looked like last season. And since I don't see Ramirez failing nearly as miserably at 1B as he did in LF, there's really nowhere for Shaw to go. (Matt Collins)
2015-09-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)At what point is Travis Shaw real?
(Rob from Alaska)
Stranger things have happened. He's on the right side of a platoon split in terms of remaining productive, I think he's shown enough to warrant attention as a productive player, althought I'm still not in on a nearly .500 slugging long term. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-09-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Travis Shaw for real? Can he be a league average corner bat?
(Hillbilly Hugging Tree from backyard ozarks)
I'm skeptical. Think he's more of a bench bat guy, maybe a platoon option? (Christopher Crawford)
