DateQuestionAnswer
2015-08-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Greg, in a points league would you rather have Jason Heyward ($12) and Jesse Winker ($1) for Rusney Castillo ($4), Matt Shoemaker ($1), and Hyun-Jin Ryu ($2)? I am looking for some long term OF help.
(Matthew from Twin Cities)
Heyward and Winker and it's not even close (Greg Wellemeyer)
2015-08-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)I need to activate Miguel Cabrera. Can I drop Gattis? I've got Schwarber to catch, and Gattis has been brutal for the past 30 days. I'm slightly concerned I'll miss a patented Gattis hot streak. Alternatively, I could drop Matt Shoemaker. What do you think? (league = redraft Roto, 5x5)
(unbigote from Pluto)
Hard to tell without knowing the depth but I'd drop Shoemaker before Gattis unless you really need the pitching and there's nothing available on the wire. (Greg Wellemeyer)
2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)I play in a dynasty league with no floor or ceiling on number of minor leaguers rostered - it's up to each owner's discretion. I have a contender - how do you decide between lower ceiling MLB guys and higher upside guys that may be years away? For example, Rubby de la Rosa versus Raimel Tapia? Matt Shoemaker versus Nomar Mazara?
(JoJo from SD)
Tapia and Mazara are guys I'd definitely own but part of it depends on league depth. I'd have to assume you have worse guys than those two to drop, but if you don't, then I'd have to assume that the league is fairly shallow. If that's the case, you don't need to own RDLR, and Shoemaker is more borderline, though I'd make an effort to keep him. This is a great type of question for The Bat Signal, where you can drop your whole roster/league parameters and we can get a better sense of the situation. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which team's surprisingly good starter is most/least likely to hold up in October? Yusmeiro Petit, Edison Volquez, Matt Shoemaker, Tanner Roark, Lance Lynn
(Christopher from Queens)
Injury notwithstanding, I like Matt Shoemaker's chances of giving the Angels a frontline performance in the playoffs. His splitter is an absolute menace. On the flipside, I would be very nervous about banking on either Petit or Volquez, excellent regular seasons notwithstanding. Which means that in two days, Volquez will two-hit the Giants over seven innings and move the Pirates into the NLDS. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Given all the postseason myths that fail to hold up to scrutiny, can you give me any reason to think any of the 10 teams are more likely than the others to win this World Series?
(Kevin from Kansas City)
Myths aside, some teams are just better than others, and while a best-of-seven series might not bear that out, it's still more likely than not that the better team will advance. The problem with the myths is that they amplify the importance of one specific aspect of a team and, as a result, overlook another that isn't necessarily less important. Pending Matt Shoemaker's health, I would view the Angels as the favorites, because they are the best overall team.

The last point I'd make here is that the six teams who've already secured Division Series spots are obviously more likely than the other four to win the World Series RIGHT NOW, because they can't be eliminated in one game. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Shoemaker ended up leading the PCL in K's with Salt Lake. Is he just a guy or is he a GUY?
(BobcatBaseball from Athens, OH)
If he had serious big-league potential, it's probably safe to say the Angels would have called him up at some point this season. (Jason Cole)
