BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)What should I do with Brandon Moss? Steven Souza and Kevin Kiermaier are on waivers. Should I drop Moss for one of them?
(childgrambino from Richmond, VA)
If you're going to drop Moss, go with Souza for the power/speed combo. Depends a lot on your categorical needs. Souza will be better all around, Moss's raw power will trump Souza. (Mike Gianella)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)If it wasn't for Kevin Kiermaier and a few other bit players, would I already have been fired from the Rays for missing completely on just about every 1st round pick by the Rays since Price?
(RJ Harrison from St. Petersburg, FL)
Luckily there are 39 rounds after the first one. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Better fantasy center fielder in an H2H dynasty league Adam Eaton or Kevin Kiermaier?
(Mike B from CA)
...Kiermaier. I believe in Eaton's bat a little bit more, but I believe there's a better chance Kiermaier develops into a steals weapon at this point than Eaton does. (Sam Miller)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the very deapest of dynasty leagues, would you consider Kevin Kiermaier, Jesus Montero, Brock Holt, Brandon Barnes, Bobby Abreu, Eugenio Suarez, Rene Rivera, Steve Pearce, and Juan Lagares. In what order would you rank them of those you would consider?
(Donald from Orlando)
I'd look at Kiermaier, and Holt most among that group. Kiermaier has some nice PT with Myers down and Holt seems to be ready to play anywhere to stay in the lineup. There isn't a lot of disparity in the group, but for this year only, I'd still give Abreu a look, too. Beyond that, Suarez and Montero would be my next two. (Paul Sporer)
2014-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin Kiermaier is projected as a 5 win player by one system. Say what?
(Dee Rae from Bay Area)
When we have driverless cars, there will be far fewer accidents, less traffic, more efficient use of the streets and the cars themselves, but we'll still have to sit semi-alert in the driver's seat (Sam Miller)
