chances we see Banuelos in the rotation by the All-star break?

@JQ- They might need some injuries. I think Hector Noesi is the next starter in waiting then you’re looking at Banuelos.

He will pitch in 2012, but it will be hard to speculate win. Second Half should be your starting point.

And this is all assuming they don’t bring in another free agent starter between now and then.

I won’t be near a computer on Sunday, so I’d love to get your thoughts on two players whose ADP rankings are zooming up – Dee Gordon and Matt Moore.  Are the changes in their rankings due mostly to hype to the general public or do you, as a fantasy expert, feel that this is warranted?  One more thing – I have Gordon and Aybar as potential keepers on the same team.  Am I right to only keep one since they’re so similar (SB’s, but no power) and, if so, who would you keep?  Thanks.

@Sam Not a writer, but figured I’d chime in.  MDC redid their rankings and that’s part of why Gordon and Moore are shooting up the ADP charts, since they both got a huge boost (too big, IMO).  Moore was already seeing some helium before the rerank, so his rise is probably more legit, but its hard to tell exactly where he’s going to go at this point until we see a greater variety of comprehensive rankings.  Either way, I’m not trusting his ADP.  If I’m going to draft him in redraft, I can’t imagine doing it much before pick 90,… Read more »

@JQ Agree with Ben, I yield to him. @Sam Agree mostly with MH. There’s certainly a ton of hype surrounding these guys next year, and that’ll only increase as we get closer to April. Moore is at 115 right now in 296 qualifying mixed league, 5×5 drafts. That puts him as the #33 starting pitcher, behind guys like Brandon Beachy, Johnny Cueto, Gio Gonzalez, Ricky Romero, and Josh Johnson (his name wouldn’t be on the list if he didn’t have chronic injury problems, but he does, and I’m staying as far away as possible next year) I’d take Moore at… Read more »

Rescind that previous comment… Now, barring injury, I doubt he gets more than 3-5 starts, if that. Depends, of course, on future trades—maybe Burnett’s contract is eaten and he’s traded, or maybe Hughes finally hits the market, but I doubt we see much Manny this year.

Status Update:

We’ve run into some technical difficulties that require Bossman Studes’ attention. Check back at 3:00 PM EST and if we haven’t figured out the problem by then, we’ll scrub the mission.

If you haven’t already come to this conclusion, we are going to have to postpone the Rotochat. We are very sorry for inconveniencing all of you. Look for another Rotochat very soon.
