BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-10-07 18:00:00 (link to chat)I own Justin Upton, Yoenis Cespedes, Domonic Brown and Matt Kemp in a dynasty league. Can I count on either of them to make a huge step forward next year to elite status? Thanks!
(Derek from St. Louis)
Hi Derek:

I wouldn't think any of them are big "huge step forward" guys, but Brown and Kemp are probably your best bets. Kemp will bounce back assuming health (a big if, though) while Brown is still young enough that he could maintain or get a little better. (Mike Gianella)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is my boy Domonic Brown legit going forward as a Keeper or should I sell him pronto? He can't debut like I did. 3 Dingers. Thanks Spo!
(Tuffy Rhodes from Not On A Diamond)
It really depends what you can get. I wouldn't sell just to sell. Remember, he was an elite prospect and so his panning out is more delayed than unexpected and after all the bugging out on his BBs in May, he's got an 8/16 K/BB in June (11% BB rate) (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)How long can Domonic Brown keep this up?
(Alex from Anaheim)
If by "this," you mean the power, I think he can keep it up for a long, long time. Brown's home run ceiling, particularly in light of the ballpark, might be in the high 30s. With that being said, in order to keep it up, he can't endure too many more months like May, when he struck out 21 times without drawing a walk. The 4-to-6 BB:K so far in June is a step in the right direction. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Domonic Brown will breakout this year or more of the same?
(Jim from Portland)
I think we could be looking at a mild breakout. Not an OH MY GOD I HAVE TO HAVE HIM breakout, but it's not like there were much expectations for Brown to even become a reasonable fantasy option before Spring Training. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)30 team dynasty league, offered Domonic Brown for Ogando, same contracts for the next 3 years. Do I need more for Ogando?
(MattWinks from Madison)
Hey Matt. That's probably fair, though I'm not the biggest Ogando fan. Brown's reworked swing looks like it can and will lead to some better results and while he might never be an elite hitter he could be a good one. I don't see Ogando as a future ace (though I know some would disagree) so you could make this trade. (Mike Gianella)
2013-03-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Drop Starling Marte for Domonic Brown? Too close to call? Or drop Marte for Matt Cerpenter? (Espinosa and Rutledge are my 2B)? Thanks.
(Chris from Toronto)
No and no. Don't bail on Marte - he has more upside than any of those guys for fantasy. (Bret Sayre)
2013-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Got my tix for the Phillies opener. Excited! Two questions: 1. Is Domonic Brown finally there? 2. What's your best Opening day story?
(Boris from Widner U.)
(Jealous.) Brown has given us a lot to like this spring, so I'm cautiously optimistic that he has turned a corner and will deliver a nice year if the Phillies stick with him throughout it.

And, as I just mentioned, I think Kazmir winning a rotation job in Cleveland is up there. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)For those who haven't seen, Padres prospect Rymer Liriano will haveTJS and will miss 6 months. Delmon Young to have micro-fracture surgery on ankle, will start season on DL. No wuestion, just sharing the news.
(AK from Phoenix)
Sucks with Liriano as he is one of my favorite prospects. Delmon Young is addition by subtraction for the Phillies. Now, I wonder if they'll coax Darren Daulton out of retirement to block Domonic Brown even further. (Jason Collette)
2013-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm working on my starting outfield for this season. Who should I play? 500 ABs to Ben Revere? How about Domonic Brown? John Mayberry Jr.? Is Delmon Young better than any of these guys? Where in the world is Shane Victorino?
(Charlie Manuel from the hills of West Virginia)
The only thing I'm fairly confident of is that Delmon is probably not better than any of those guys. Brown and Mayberry can platoon. Shane Victorino has gone to a happier place: the Red Sox clubhouse. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Domonic Brown - Any hope for this year (and beyond)?
(JL from Chicago, IL)
Yes, I'm still modestly hopeful. They keep jerking him around for some reason, but he's only 25. Don't go crazy, but as a late upside pick, you can do much worse.

Now Playing: Backseat Freestyle - Kendrick Lamar (Paul Sporer)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Domonic Brown will get 500 ABs in 2013? What will he do with them?
(michaelmcduffe from ottawa)
Michael, this ties in with the previous question. It's a little too early to say whether Brown will get the at-bats. I'm not sure what he'll do with them. Part of me thinks he can still turn into a good player, but another part of me is hesitant to buy too much into the hype. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any hope for Domonic Brown? Or has he been RAJred beyond repair?
(Ratcatcher from Narnia)
Still some hope, but I'm not holding out all that much. Not sure if that's Amaro's fault or Domonic Brown's. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Last year in a keeper league I traded Trout and some assorted stuff for Cano. I won the league, my first championship in 20+ years of fantasy baseball. Cano's having a great year again, but everytime I see Trout in the box scores a little piece of me cries "what if you still had him." I know I'm being irrational. Any words of advice/comfort to talk me off the ledge of insanity?
(Paul from DC)
It's a cliche, but banners fly forever. Even for the next few years, Cano may still be more valuable than Trout anyway. The guy's amazing, and it sucks to lose him, but if you have a chance to win a championship right now, it's worth sacrificing the future a bit. Plenty of prospects fail. Had you traded Lonnie Chisenhall or Domonic Brown, you might not be feeling as bad right now (not to say they're failed prospects, but what Trout is doing is pretty rare). (Derek Carty)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Travis Snider and Domonic Brown would succeed if they were in new organizations, or are their problems intrinsic?
(William from (Portland))
Thatís the basis for change of scenery trades. Itís hard to say and dangerous to assume without knowing more about the Snider and Brown situations, though I think Snider would look better if he got away from the American League East entirely. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-04-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)My Phils just lost to your Giants 1-0 last night, and now have the league's third fewest runs scored. Are there any quick fixes available?
(Drew Lewis from Medford, MA)
I doubt there's much available via trade this early in the season, so the Phillies might as well look inside the organization first. Playing Domonic Brown over Juan Pierre in left field would seem to be an obvious place to start. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)The ETA for Wil Myers is 2012, but Gordon just had a breakout season and the Royals signed Fancoeur to an extension. What is the plan for Myers? Would you rather have him or Domonic Brown?
(Wendy from Madrid)
2012 is possible, but Myers might not be a full-time contributor until 2013. At that point, you can re-evaluate the outfield situation. The Royals need arms more than bats, so a trade could always clear space.

I'd take Myers over Brown. Myers is going to be a 6/6 type of hitter. (Jason Parks)
2012-03-14 13:30:00 (link to chat)Domonic Brown, deserving to start for the Phillies in LF or better to give him a year in AAA?
(Ben Horrow from Philadelphia)
He'll probably start the year in Triple-A, since he didn't exactly excel there last season, but I'd be shocked if he stayed there all season. I don't know whether the Phillies still see him as their future starter, but he's 24, so if he's ever going to take the next step, it'll have to be fairly soon. I think he could reestablish himself in the first half. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of playing time do you reasonably expect for John Mayberry this season?
(Prospecting from Holding pattern)
A lot. He should be the primary first baseman while Ryan Howard is on the shelf, and once Howard comes back, I fully expect him to get a lot of the playing time in left field as long as something crazy doesnít happen, like Domonic Brown coming up and demolishing or Juan Pierre blackmailing Charlie Manuel. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Derek, how may PA do you see Domonic Brown getting with the Phillies this year? Will he start the year in Triple-A, platoon with Mayberry? Basically, is Brown worth keeping for $4 (for 2012 and '13) in an NL-only, 8-team, 5x5 roto league?
(GBSimons from Boise, ID)
I'd project him for 100. GM Ruben Amaro Jr. has said on multiple occasions that he wants Brown to get a full year at Triple-A, so that seems the most likely scenario. If he absolutely mashes, he could push himself into the picture at mid-season, but I'm not banking on it. In just an 8-team NL-only league where you're not going to get much from him this year, I'd throw him back. (Derek Carty)
2011-12-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can you riff on Domonic Brown? Broken hand, changed swing...what caused his regression last year? What are your thoughts on his future?
(Eric Longenhagen from Catasauqua, PA)
Broken hand, changed swing, and the Phillies jerking him around certainly didn't help. I do wonder if teams are calling on the Phillies about him as a change of scenery type. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Domonic Brown will be starting in the OF for the Phillies by ____?
(dianagramr from NYC)
2012. (John Perrotto)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Domonic Brown? Seems like he's still a bit raw, but potential is there to be great. What kind of player do you see him becoming?
(Jimmy from NJ)
A very, very good player with peak seasons at the all-star level. (Jason Parks)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was surprised I haven't heard more from you on the Philly roster construction - they seem tailor made to go with a 10 man staff and give Cholly all kind of platoon options to create some value in the line-up. Is it because their "adds" don't point that way, or are you just afraid to put your hopes in writing and see them dashed again?
(Brecken from Chicago)
I think it's a sign of the times that we ought to be able to celebrate the Phillies dialing down to six relievers this season, and making space for a sixth bench player. Of course, there's the bit about being careful what you wish for--if it's for Brian Bocock's benefit, that's sort of sad for everyone but Bocock. John Mayberry Jr., Jeff Larish... Robb Quinlan? A Larish/Quinlan matched set? See, part of the problem is that beyond notionally carring a RF platoon if Domonic Brown splits the job with Ben Francisco is that they'll have their lefty PH in Ross "Three Bricks Shy of a" Gload, and with that rotation, it isn't like they'll have a ton of PH assignments in the first place. They could use the 25th slot on just about anything, and whoever he is, he won't play much. (Christina Kahrl)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's actually going to get ABs in the Phillies' outfield corners? I've got Francisco at $10 in a vanilla roto NL 4x4 keeper league, and if you squint hard it almost looks like he's worth keeping. Talk me out of this, please.
(Ratcatcher from Paris)
Pretty sure Domonic Brown will end up with most of them. If he hits in the spring they will give him the job. (Marc Normandin)
2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)If the Phils can't deal Blanton, do you think there's a chance they'd move Cole Hamels instead? It's right out of Amaro's playbook - get the bird in the hand (Lee locked up long-term) instead of waiting to see if Hamels re-ups before he hits free agency. If they try to move Hamels, where does he end up? Arizona in a deal involving Justin Upton, perhaps?
(ColonelTom from Richmond, KY)
It's possible they'd move Hamels, but I can't see them putting somebody in Domonic Brown's way as being the objective. Of course, they do have just one more year to go with Raul Ibanez... (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance the Phillies go after Beltre and move Polanco to a team that needs a solid 2B? I'm trying to think of scenarios where they can get a good RH bat since Werth is likely leaving.
(Frank from Buffalo)
I'd love to see them do this, but them I'm on record as a Polanco-detractor, and his brand of adequacy really only flies when you have all of the other weapons the Phillies already possess. And since they're losing Werth to free agency and should be swapping in Domonic Brown in his place, moving Polanco and adding a big right-handed thumper like Beltre would seem like a great way of replacing Werth's 2010 performance in this lineup. For runs scored and defense in 2011, I'd definitely take Beltre+Brown over Polanco+Werth. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Is it safe to say Domonic Brown is the top prospect in 2011? Or stay tuned?
(Nick from Nevada)
He's a top candidate, but not a done deal. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which one do you think is better, Domonic Brown or Mike Trout?
(southsidepride from Chicago)
It's awfully close at this point, and the tiebreaker would definitely have less to do with the talents themselves and more to do with the time-preferences of the relevant teams in question. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-07-29 16:30:00 (link to chat)Matt, do you agree with Uncle Chollie sitting Brown tonight in favor of Francisco? And just for fun, aren't you glad Benny is in the three hole as well?
(hessshaun from Domination)
Shouldn't your location be DomOnation? Or was that not a Domonic Brown reference? I don't think it's crazy to do right now, but they can't be platooning Brown next year. For this year, I'm not sure who is better at hitting lefties, but keeping Francisco hot after his cold start isn't dumb. Lineup order doesn't worry me too much. I would just prefer Werth and his OBP bat before Howard and his SLG, but that's all I've really thought about this type of stuff. (Matt Swartz)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yanks gonna send Montero and a happy meal for Lee, then flip Vazquez for Werth, Domonic Brown gets the call-up, Yanks & Phils settle it all once again in the World Series. Sound about right?
(tommybones from brooklyn)
I hope not. Stop trying to squash my dreams of a Padres playoff run! (Marc Normandin)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have in a lifetime keeper league: Hellickson Wallace Dom Brown Gordon
(mwball75 from Cinny, OH)
I like Domonic Brown a lot, and as much as I think Hellickson is a success waiting to happen, I don't like to bet that much on pitchers when there's a more sure thing waiting on the offensive side of the ball. (Marc Normandin)
2010-03-24 11:00:00 (link to chat)For fatnasy purposes, who would you rather have: Domonic Brown or Michael Taylor?
(Connor from Chicago, IL)
Michael Taylor, definitely, because his path to the majors is much easier. I think Taylor is going to be at least an average hitter, like, next year. (Tommy Bennett)
