DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)I've been offered Yan Gomes for AJ Pierzynski and Chris Owings (RBI S HR AVG RUNS) H2h do you bite Mr. Carsley
(dancini from Pgh)
Yes. I think Gomes and AJ are roughly equivalent, and Owings is a great throw-in. I bite. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yan Gomes or Travis D'arnaud which one do I keep for this season? 12 man head to head rotisserie league
(Rob from Baltimore)
Gomes easily for me. (Paul Sporer)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather own in a dynasty? Yan Gomes, Travis D'arnaud, or Miguel Montero?
(CharlieWerner from Manayunk Pa)
I'd prefer d'Arnaud, but if I knew I needed to get production out of the position this year, I'd go Montero. In neither scenario would Gomes enter the equation. (Bret Sayre)
2013-11-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Sam Thanks for the chat always enjoy your truth and a Analysis. Real quick if u were starting a fantasy baseball team who would be top 5-10 guys u would build around??
(Mike from Ri)
1. Mike Trout
2. Bryce Harper
3. Andrew McCutchen
4. Miguel Cabrera
5. Robinson Cano

But those are boring answers. If you want to know which players I might target at some point in a draft or auction, I seem to like Harper, Choo, Yan Gomes, Nelson Cruz, and Kyle Seager a bit more than the average person.

This chat is off to a slow start! (Sam Miller)
2013-10-07 18:00:00 (link to chat)Any under the radar catchers going into next year? I'm stuck with Wellington in a 20 teamer
(Mitch from Iowa)
Hi Mitch

In a 20-team league, probably not. Yan Gomes would be more of a sleeper if everyone would stop talking about him, but still might be in your format. If the Twins consider moving Joe Mauer to another position, Josmil Pinto is instantly intriguing. (Mike Gianella)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Impressive 52 games from Yan Gomes so far. Can he keep this up?
(Jay from San Rafael)
I don't think he's going to be a .300 hitter long term, but I've always liked the bat and pop. Good role player. (Jason Cole)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)Mike,12tean H2H ,hr, r, RBI,ave,sb ,xbh.Need a push Wieters has had a off season,available are R. Martin,Avila,Y.Gomes.Looking for a fix.Thanks
(Chesty from New Bern,NC)
Hiya Chesty.

I probably like Wieters more than you do, but of those guys I'd be fine with taking Russell Martin over Matt Wieters. Martin has almost 10 steals (he has 9) and the power numbers are relatively close to Wieters'. I have no problem pulling the trigger there (although keep in mind that Martin goes through BA droughts).

Alex Avila's hot right now but I don't like buying in the middle of the streak. Yan Gomes will get more PT with Mark Reynolds' DFA, but I still am not convinced he's going to be a full timer. Try Martin. (Mike Gianella)
