DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)How does the Carter power surge affect his value going forward? I have him locked up for cheap in a H2H 6X6 OPS league. Trade away in the spring when the value is at its peak or ride his 30+ homer seasons hoping for a 250 batting average?
(JRam from San Anto)
I've heard some intel on changes he's made to his swing, which make me think his improvements are real and sustainable. I don't think he's going to hit .300, but with his power, a .260 average is extremely valuable. Would it blow your mind if he and Juan Abreu ended up with similar numbers next year? Abreu at .290 with 38 homers and Carter at .271 with 43 homers? #YCPB (Cory Schwartz)
2012-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some prospects at RP that you like (are there any)?
(McPaine from St. Paul)
There's rarely such a thing as a RP "prospect." The good pitching prospects generally start out in the rotation, and if they can't hack it, they move into the bullpen. That said, there are certainly some relievers in Triple-A that could prove valuable to an AL or NL-only team. Don't count on them for saves anytime soon, but they could provide good ratios. A few off the top of my head: Eduardo Sanchez was just recalled by St. Louis and has good stuff. Juan Abreu is interesting in Houston if he can improve his control. I like Zach Putnam for Colorado. Nick Hagadone's been up and down for Cleveland this year. Jose Ceda is out for 2012 (Tommy John) but is interesting next year, perhaps even getting in the saves mix at some point. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Derek, who closes in Houston? (Wow, that's a question that is truly only relevant to fantasy players.) Will Lyon be given the chance to stay healthy and hold down the job based on his salary?
(GBSimons from Boise, ID)
I think Lyon is the favorite at this point, but maybe not the heavy favorite. Wilton Lopez, David Carpenter, and Juan Abreu will also be in the mix, possibly among others. Whoever starts with the job is the best bet to saves 25+ games. (Derek Carty)
