BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-08-01 16:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike! I just traded for Carson Fulmer in my dynasty fantasy league. From all of my research I see that he has a major walk issue. Is that going to be the thing that prevents him from becoming the elite starter he was drafted to be? Does he wind up staying in the rotation long term?
(Mike C from Endwell)
It's always hard to say if something like this can be taught or coached "out" of a player, but Fulmer's command makes it likely to me that he is more of a very good or elite reliever than a quality starting pitcher. On the other hand, it's possible that he sticks in the rotation at some point and the White Sox certainly will try this with him at some point. (Mike Gianella)
2016-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)2 Questions: First of all, if the BP top 50 list was written AFTER the Futures game, I assume Eloy Jimenez would have made an even more drastic jump? How high? I feel I gotta treat him like a t10 prospect, with all arrows pointing up. Second of all, how impressive was Chih-Wei Hu in the Futures game? He looked MLB ready with a lot of movement on his pitches. Same thing for Carson Fulmer.
(fawkesmulder from Zzyzx)
I'd hope the list wouldn't change too much after just one game. That said, I was driving the Eloy bus. I had him just outside the top ten on my personal list. (Brendan Gawlowski)
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)
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)Next BIG prospect nobody is talking about?
(Rob from Chicago)
Carson Fulmer, since his numbers this year stink? Ian Happ, since anything short of reaching the majors the year after being drafted is a disappointment for a college hitter drafted by the Cubs thanks to Kyle Schwarber? (Scooter Hotz)
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have a prospect that you are particularly high on but many/most of your colleagues are not?
(Adam from Michigan)
In the AL, it might be Carson Fulmer. I think he could be another White Sox college pitcher on the fast track to the majors as an impact starter like Sale or Rodon. Most of the other owners in my AL-only league were a little surprised when I took him on Saturday, though, with a few other bats still available.

In the NL, I'm not sure if this counts, but I was surprised to get Ian Happ in my NL-only league's minor league draft. 20 minor leaguers were kept and Happ still didn't go until the start of the third round. Most of my roto-playing friends and colleagues like him about the same as I do, or at least they say they do, but the way he fell on Sunday was weird. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Please tell me that Jurickson Profar will start living up to his pre-injury expectations soon!
(Hannah from Maine)
I would love nothing more than to tell you that. I'm rooting pretty hard for him. But the time he missed due to injury is almost unprecedented. I have no idea how he'll actually turn out. I selected Carson Fulmer over him in the minor league draft portion of my AL-only league's auction and my BP colleague Mike Gianella took Profar 5 picks later. After the draft, that was the move that I told my opponents I might regret the most. (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)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect pitcher do you like the most long term and why? Brady Aiken, Dillon Tate, Kolby Allard, or Carson Fulmer. Thanks.
(fightingmoose from MB, Canada)
I like the ceiling on Tate. Dude can dial it up and if the secondaries are there for him, I could see him being dominant. They all have a shot of being very good though. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Could you rank these pitchers for fantasy dynasty purposes. Jeff Hoffman, Brady Aiken, Dillon Tate, Aderson Espinoza, Francis Martes, Carson Fulmer, and Kolby Allard? Thanks.
(cracker73 from Florida)
Tate, Hoffman, Espinoza, Fullmer, Martes, Aiken, Allard (Mike Gianella)
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)
2015-06-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which player are you much higher than the industry on and which player are you much lower than the industry on? Thanks!
(sdsuphilip from San Diego )
Great question. The player I'm certainly higher on is Nick Plummer; an outfielder out of Michigan. I think the hit tool is borderline plus-plus, and even though he won't provide a ton of defensive value, I think he can hold his own in the corner.

On the other side of the spectrum, it's Carson Fulmer, and it's not close. Love the stuff, love the fire, hate the delivery and size. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-06-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've seen mock drafts that have the Astros trying to save money with their first few picks. Why would they want to save money? They have $17 million, and there isn't the best draft to say the least.
(Justin from Washington)
Boy, it's a good question. Look, if it works ut that they get Alex Bregman, Carson Fulmer and Daz Cameron in the same draft -- yes, that's possible -- then great. But I'd say that's a less than 25 percent chance. If Cameron doesn't make it to them at 37, I don't see another player that makes not taking Bregman or Tucker at pick five worth it. But that's just me. (Christopher Crawford)
