BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is David Freese worth keeping at a cheap price? What do you think about CC this year?
(Tim from Harlem)
If you're in a deep keeper league, sure he is, but if you've got eight teams or fewer in an NL-only league, not so much, because there isn't a tremendous upside involved. As for CC, I figure he's the one thing sure to be sound among the Bronx's rotation options. (Christina Kahrl)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wow, you nailed my David Freese situation perfectly. I can keep him for $1 in an eight-team, NL-only league, and I'm flip-flopping over whether to do so.
(GBSimons from Boise, ID)
Yeah, that's a tough buck to spend in that situation... if you had some insight into what else will be in the pool, you'd be better set; the potential tragedy of having to spend more than that buck later, with FAAB, because supply isn't infinite, that's well worth avoiding. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is most likely to maintain his offensive gains this year in 2011: Kelly Johnson, David Freese or Travis Snider?
(Nico Toscani from Above the Law)
"You guys think you're above the law... well you ain't above mine!" CLASSIC

Travis Snider. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given his performs in the second half last year and the beginning of this season, do you think we can actually start to trust Barry Zito?
(YD from Philly)
More important than Barry Zito, I'm listening to The Giraffes now that the Pixies are finished with.

Back to Zito though, he has a 2.45 ERA, 7.3 K/9, 3.6 BB/9 and just 0.6 HR/9 since July 18 of last season (121 1/3 innings). I don't think that the ERA is realistic, but he sure seems to be back on track nowadays.

Unrelated, but I just traded Heath Bell and Jason Marquis for David Freese and Mat Latos in a keeper league. I took over someone else's roster, so this year is for rebuilding. I like that return, especially since keeping closers isn't my bag and both of those players are cheap cheap. (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Shawn- What should the Cardinals do at 3B?
(Jake from St. Louis)
They're going with David Freese. He got a little BABIP-lucky in Memphis last year, but his projections are decent enough (a bit above average), which should be good enough. And you can't beat the price. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Cardinals gotta like David Freese's price? I hope they do...your 2013 St. Louis Cardinals - Matt Holliday, Albert Pujols, and 23 guys making league minimum...like David Freese.
(Paul from LA)
That'll only be a problem if the economy doesn't start growing again, or if MLB just doesn't grow over the next few years, for whatever reason. In fact, if I were them I'd be trying to get Albert signed right now, because it's entirely possible that the market will be in much better shape next winter. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-01-19 15:30:00 (link to chat)Trade Stephen Drew, Austin Jackson and Budd Norris for David Freese, Scott Downs and CJ Wilson? In a dynasty league and have no relief pitching
(Jquinton82 from NY)
I don't usually answer fantasy questions, but you do know that the Rangers are going to try Wilson in the rotation this spring, right? Even if he does go back to the pen, seems to me you're overpaying. (Steven Goldman)
