BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 20 team dynasty league. We're allowed to protect 20 players from our 25 man roster yearly. I can protect only two of the following relievers, Brad Ziegler, Shae Simmons, Kevin Quackenbush, John Holdzkom, Hunter Strickland, Jeremy Affeldt, and RJ Alvarez. Which should I keep for next year?
(John from MD)
Again, I'd recommend shooting this one at our fantasy guys in their next chats, but I'd go with Quackenbush and Strickland. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Cam Bedrosian and Shae Simmons? Do either of these hurlers possess the closer arsenal?
(Rup from Lorton, VA)
Yeah, they could both close, but right now they are a long way from getting that kind of opportunity. They should be worthwhile high-K assets in only leagues right now. I prefer Simmons to Bedrock and not just because Cam was ripped in that outing against Houston. (Paul Sporer)
