DateQuestionAnswer
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey George, would you expect AJ Ramos to start the year as the fins' closer? If so, how confident are you that he'll lose the job to one of your guys Capps or Barraclough?
(James from FL)
I LOVE CARTER CAPPS...However, A.J. Ramos is excellent. He's going to be the Marlins closer and keep the job for the entire season, I feel pretty confident in that. Let's make something clear on Capps. There are HUGE Godzilla-sized injury concerns there. If he doesn't run into elbow problems (HUGE IF) he could put up video game-like strikeout totals if he can somehow get to 60 innings. There isn't anybody more fun to speculate on than Capps...Except for Arquimedes Caminero... (George Bissell)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)12 team mixed auction league with 4 minor league spots. Moncada goes for 16, Gallo 8, other top guys for similar cash. I call out "Tim Anderson, 1 buck" and crickets. Am i missing something, or is it the boring name? I bet if he was Arquimedes Caminero he would go for 10 bucks, right?
(Tim from Harlan, KY)
It's probably the fact that some of the non-BP sites don't have him ranked as highly. If your league doesn't read us, he could slip. (Mike Gianella)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Pretty certain my best reliever pick (16 rounds in) thus far is Arquimedes Caminero. Agree or disagree. Pretty sure I don't even need to show the rest of my roster, because come on: look at that name!
(Andy from Chicago)
He's a cross between a muscle car and the guy who explained buoyancy. Your best pick by far. (Ben Lindbergh)
