BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-16 21:00:00 (link to chat)Would you give up Joe Ross to get JP Crawford in a 10 team H2H points league?
(Kion from Pride Land)
Absolutely I would. (Bret Sayre)
2016-03-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would the Nats be better served keeping Joe Ross down until he gets a feel for his changeup? I see a big upside for him if he can throw an average changeup with confidence
(Sean99 from Chicago)
If they weren't in a 'contend now' situation, yes. However, he's been up long enough the service time clock question (I think) isn't really in play. There is a TON of pressure on them this year. If they deem him one of their best five starters, it's 'all hands on deck' this year. (Adam McInturff)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Matt,dynasty league,please rank...A J Pollock..Matt Duffy....Raisel Iglesias....Micheal Conforto...Joe Ross .....Jesse Hahn...Randall Grichuk...Billy Burns Thanks,John
(John from Boston)
Pollock, Conforto, Iglesias, Duffy, Ross, Grichuk, Burns, Hahn (Matt Collins)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)Luiz Gohara, Trevor Gott or Joe Ross in the 13th round of 36 minor league only draft?
(coachdorsey00 from TN)
Ross (Matt Collins)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey George,please rank....Pollock...Matt Duffy...Conforto....Raisel Iglesias...Joe Ross... Thanks,John
(John from Boston)
Hey John! Pollock first by a country mile. I'd put Conforto ahead of Duffy in a dynasty league, but it's close. I love Iglesias, but you have to invest in hitters. If it's a re-draft, I might think about Iglesias second on this list. (George Bissell)
2015-09-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)In hindsight, which transaction surprised you the most?
(Paul from Worldwide)
Do you mean only in hindsight or overall? Either way, it still surprises me the Nationals were able to get Trea Turner and Joe Ross for Steven Souza. (R.J. Anderson)
2015-08-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the better long term investment : Blake Snell or Joe Ross?
(Joe from The Keys)
Ooooh, good one. I would say that Ross is the "safer" long-term investment -- not that Ross doesn't have upside, I just think he's the less volatile prospect. Snell's got the better stuff though, and the command is so much better than it was a year ago. I'd probably go Snell. They're both good. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Could you rank these 5 in future value: Heston, Joe Ross, Wisler, Velasquez, Archie Bradley? How much does Bradley's shoulder woes affect his future career?
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena)
For future value, I guess I'd go Velasquez, Wisler, Heston, Bradley and Ross. Heston is the guy I could really be wrong on; he has already looked much better than the scouting reports were in the minors and his ceiling could be higher than I think. Bradley is also tough. He could be at the top of this list, but you hit the nail on the head. The injury history worries me - and unlike elbow injuries, shoulder injuries sometimes just kill a career. I could see Bradley being 2nd on this list, but I'm dropping him for now. I'm not a doctor nor do I play one on TV. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Think Joe Ross can top his brother? If not, would you rather have Ross or Jimmy Nelson?
(Marcus from DC)
I'd go Tyson, Joe, then Jimmy in this mini ranking. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Seems like Joe Ross was a big omission despite a few really liking him before this year. This year he has only shown more improvement in throwing strikes and his slider looked flat out dirty in the majors. Seemed like a lock for the top 50, if not the top 25. What am I missing?
(Ben from AZ)
Despite his two game stint in the majors, the ceiling isn't all that high. It's a mid-rotation ceiling, which is quite good, but if he made it he would have been in the back end and there were some higher-ceiling arms that we liked a little better in that 35-50 range. (Jeff Moore)
2015-07-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Doug, could you rate these 5 Ps for future? Any stand out above the others? Joe Ross, Vincent Velasquez, Raisel Iglesias, Matt Wisler, Michael Lorenzen. Thanks!
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena)
Ross is an intriguing pitcher but his pitch selection is mirroring his brother's approach, including a high rate of SL's that simultaneously raises the injury risk and put the onus on his ability to bury the pitch. I really like Velasquez's delivery and the velo is legit. Iglesias is incredibly advanced for his age. Lorenzen has great stuff but was perhaps promoted before the command was honed, whereas Wisler holds the opposite profile of low ceiling but high floor. Long-term, give me Velasquez-Lorenzen-Wisler-Iglesias-Ross, but in the near-term I would go with Velasquez-Wisler-Ross-Iglesias-Lorenzen. Velasquez is above the others, and development will determine how the rest fall into place. (Doug Thorburn)
2015-03-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these pitchers according to ceiling please: A.J. Cole, Raul Alcantara, Joe Ross
(Allota from Vermont)
A.J Cole, Joe Ross, Raul Alcantara in my opinion. (Rob Willer)
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)Does Joe Ross get bumped down a bit because he moves from what would have been a great pitchers park in San Diego?
(Dave from Sacramento)
He takes a small hit because it's just not likely he's going to crack the opening day roster for the Nats. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)I would like to hear your effusive praise for Mike Rizzo. Thanks
(Charlie from Rockville)
I've loved his offseason, and legitimately can't think of a trade that he's lost. I'm sure there's one in there, but it's not coming to mind, which says something. I love love loved the Bostick acquisition, and while he's not an impact talent, I think he's a starting caliber player on a good team. Maybe more 2nd division guy than first, but even good teams have those guys in starting spots. I haven't been the biggest Turner supporter, but then I saw him on a bad day. It was cold out, and it was early in the year and maybe he just didn't show it so I keep my mind open there, but I've long been a Joe Ross supporter. Really nice adds for the price of a talented guy in Souza, who just didn't have a spot on this team. he was a great 4th outfielder, but Michael Taylor can fill that role as well. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)Considering the fact that most would argue that a #3/4 type starter is more valuable than a shutdown closer, what is the argument for Nick Burdi being on the list ahead of young arms like Joe Ross,Michael Feliz and Edwin Diaz? Is there a big difference between the arms I listed and pitchers like Kyle Freeland and Grant Holmes?
(Brandon from AZ)
Probability (though I'd maybe quibble with the statement that a #4 starter is more valuable with a true shutdown reliever). Burdi's likelihood of being a shutdown closer is much greater than the probability that Ross/Feliz/Diaz become mid-rotation arms. And he's closer, from a developmental standpoint, as well. Upside/probability combo favors both Freeland/Holmes over the trio you mentioned, and I'd be willing to bet Freeland/Holmes could both handle themselves in a big league pen right now, which I wouldn't necessarily say with the same conviction for Ross/Feliz/Diaz.

2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can you tell me about Joe Ross, SP, SD?
(scott from az)
Athletic; dream pitchers body; FB 91-93; SL 79-84; CH 81-84; all flash plus; high 3/4 so it has a tough plane; hides the ball well; would like to see more extension to the plate to make better use of his long body. If the stuff ticks up, he could be a #3 starter. Now, I have him pegged as a back-end guy. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ceiling and floor for Joe Ross?
(John from Ny)
Ceiling of his brother. Floor of a useful reliever. (This floor assumes he makes it to the majors... obviously the real floor for any arm to completely fizzle out) (Paul Sporer)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Ross seems to be having a good year so far, is he going to be better then his brother?
(scott from az)
I'm not sure. I was always hesitant to go crazy on Joe Ross because I didn't see the bat-missing secondary stuff. As he climbed, I was always wondering where the outs will come from. But he looked much sharper in camp, and continues to show more bat-missing ability with both the lively FB and sharp breaking ball. The uptick in stuff and improved command are very encouraging developments. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)My big brother may be in the big leagues already, but in the end he'll be "the other Ross", won't he?
(The other Ross from SD)
You've come to the wrong place looking for Joe Ross love. Try, like, any of my colleagues. I don't think Tyson is that special either. Let's talk about Zach Eflin. Zach Eflin > Joe Ross. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know you saw Padres camp, because I know you had the chance to drool over Franchy Cordero. Did you get to see Joe Ross? How did he look, and do you think he'll be better than his brother?
(birdzfan52 from Baltimore)
Ross can be quite a tease, showing you easy plus (to plus-plus) velocity and a sharp slider that can miss bats. The problem is that I was drunk on the Kool-Aid last season and the pitcher I saw in camp didn't fully translate to the regular season, so I'm both optimistic based on his spring badassness yet skeptical because he likes to show a little leg in the club but it doesn't go beyond that. (Jason Parks)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me 5 SP prospects you are higher on than industry? I really like Eddie Butler, despite Coors looming.
(JoJo from SD)
Joe Ross, Chris Anderson, Jesse Hahn, Edwin Diaz, Miguel Almonte. I like Butler too (Craig Goldstein)
2013-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best pitcher in the Padres system? Highest upside? Sleeper?
(padremurph from San Diego)
Wisler is probably the best pitcher. Never sleep on Joe Ross. That sucker could pop in 2014. (Jason Parks)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)What's the deal with Joe Ross? He's repeating the MWL and his numbers looks great in some stretches and awful in others.
(padremurph from San Diego)
I wouldn't worry about Ross, he's a young pitcher still working things out. I talked to someone who really liked Ross a few weeks back. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Bret, I play in a fairly deep competitive keeper league 16 team with a 20 man minor system. I am always looking for the edge in future top prospects as they carry quite the value in mid season trades etc. In 2011 I was able to grab a pre breakout Taveras and Bogaerts, since that year I am always looking for prospects who look to really make that jump from back end or outside the top 100 to future top 30 stud. I was wondering if you had some names to watch in A and Low A, that could make these leaps, particularly position players. Alen Hanson and Polanco are already picked up, Adalberto Mondesi is spoken for as well, trying to stay ahead of my competition.
(Brandon from Toronto)
If you want a few off the radar names, how about Zach Eflin and Dilson Herrera. And if you don't need to dig quite that deep, check out Dorssys Paulino, Blake Snell, Jeimer Candelario and Joe Ross. (Bret Sayre)
