BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 10 team AL only league where we start 2 (two, TWO!) catchers! Totally unrelated, but who's your favorite under the radar backup catcher in the AL?
(k3o3r9n0 from Santa Clara)
I'm in one of these as well and I have been playing Ryan Hanigan in my second spot. It's not ideal but he should walk enough that he won't do too much damage otherwise. He has an RBI tonight! Jaso is a really good option but he's in more of a timeshare than he is a backup. Geovany Soto is hurt right now and might be available because of that. He's a nice option (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Catchers are catchers, but any lying in the weeds kind of pick as a late round steal you'd suggest?
(Steve from AZ)
Yes, hard to see a big steal at the position given what it's like. You could try for Mike Zunino in a shallower, non-keeper league and hope people forgot about him. Ryan Hanigan might be a guy people overlook in deeper leagues who might hurt the BA but provides some sneaky power. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your favorite ball player that you will never own on a fantasy team? I personally love Brendan Ryan because of his humor and how under appreciated he is.
(Jon from Arlington)
Ryan Hanigan might actually be my favorite active player after Bourjos, and I'd never own him on a fantasy team, so (Sam Miller)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Devin Mesoraco still have a future as every-day C for the Reds? If so, when might that future be?
(sitdancer from DC)
Hi sitdancer, thanks for the question. Someone is blasting Men at Work's "Who Can It Be Now?" so forgive me if I'm distracted. I think Mesoraco can be an everyday catcher, but as numerous youngsters before him have shown, that is a very difficult position to master at the big-league level. The presence of Ryan Hanigan complicates matters. He is almost the ideal backup catcher, but at the same time, he's too good to be a backup. (Geoff Young)
2012-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the Reds taking so long to figure out that Ryan Hanigan is a starting C at the MLB level, do they deal Hanigan this offseason and improve their rotation?
(jlarsen from chicago)
It takes two to tango, as it were. You have to find a team willing to part with a pitcher you like in exchange for Hanigan. Also, again, depth is important. Most MLB GMs would rather hang onto a player they don't "need" for depth purposes than make a trade where they're not happy about the return. The Reds won't deal Hanigan just to make some kind of move or to satisfy some sort of #freeryanhanigan movement, they'll make a deal if and only if they feel like it leaves them with a better ballclub than when they started. (Colin Wyers)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Devin Mesoraco, I haven't decide who is calling the game yet. I actually think Ryan Hanigan deserves the time split, am I wrong?
(Dusty Baker from Cinncy)
We probably don't know enough about what his pitchers are telling him, and how much those things matter. Hanigan's not a zero and a split wouldn't be Dusty's worst move. (Sam Miller)
2011-11-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Is Walt Jocketty really going to spend another winter sitting on his hands, letting major league ready prospects pile up while his team is a top notch starter away from being truly competitive? Surely Castellini didn't have "pray it just miraculously happens" as the strategy for his "the losing stops now" approach.
(Rick from Chicago)
The Reds really do have to figure out which of the catchers of the future in their system is the catcher of their future and find a good home for the other one. Holding on to youngsters is often a good thing, but holding on to them too long can be a very bad thing. And no, that was not an attempt at making an edgy, twisted Penn State joke--I meant in the Bill Stoneman sense. Also, free Ryan Hanigan! (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have the following four catchers in a 16 team Strat-O-Matic league where you can keep a guy forever if you like. Which do you like long term: Chris Iannetta, Ryan Hanigan, Josh Thole, Jason Castro? I'd love to have a stronger catcher, but that's not a possibility until next year's draft.
(jhardman from Strat-O-Matic land)
Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to play a strat-o-matic league before, so I'm not sure how all the specifics work, like how catcher defense is factored in. Hitting wise in regular roto terms, I like Iannetta the best. (Derek Carty)
2011-06-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give your thoughts on why any of the MLB teams starving for a catcher haven't been able to give Cincinnati an offer good enough to free Ryan Hanigan?
(jhardman from Rangerland)
Maybe because the Reds are asking too much in trade? Or because they don't want to break up what's been a very productive unit? I don't think they're obligated to solve somebody else's problem without being amply rewarded. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-06-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Devin Mesoraco is destroying AAA (.330/.409/.558), but the Reds already have two starter-worthy catchers. Should they make a move mid-season to give him a shot or hang tight until after the season and let Hernandez walk?
(RMR from Chicago)
Free Ryan Hanigan! As far as I'm concerned, Hanigan should have not only his own starting job, but his own reality show about having a starting job. The Reds are stacked at catcher from the majors on down, and a number of other teams around the league might pay through the nose for some help behind the plate, so if they're confident that Mesoraco is psychologically ready for the majors and that his development wouldn't be hurt by a time-sharing arrangement, making a move might not be a bad way of maximizing the value of their assets. (Ben Lindbergh)
