All for J.J. Hardy!

Not sure, the off season is not over yet. The Orioles could bring in some help.

Could Trevor Story see playing time in Colorado with potential Reyes suspension/injury. Any fantasy impact in 2016?
Paul Swydan
9:51
Well, if he does get suspended, I would hope/think it would be to start the season, and I think they'd be reticent to promote Story to start the season. So, I'm not sure the suspension will affect his fantasy value. But he might see some action this year, especially if Reyes stinks as badly as he did last year when he does play.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:51
I am looking for Story to make an impact in 2017. Others will fill Reyes's void this season.

If you were starting a 12-man keeper league, how would you guys recommend doing it (Type, Number of Players, etc.)?
Paul Swydan
9:53
Honestly? I kind of just like the traditional 5x5 format. If you're not doing it that way, my main advice is 1) don't pick stats that will double count and 2) make sure you have equal weight for hitting and pitching.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:53
Just 5-7 keepers with strong round based escalating price.

Which fans should be more excited about their future? Astros or Rangers?
Paul Swydan
9:54
Probably the Astros. But I love Rougned Odor, and I haven't given up on Jurickson Profar!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:54
Future is the Astros, but I like the Rangers to win the West in 2016
JC

How good is Lucas Giolito going to be?
Paul Swydan
9:55
Pretty darn?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:56
Really good when he is pitching. His health may limit his potential

Springer for Carrasco a fair trade?
Paul Swydan
9:57
Hmmm. I guess that depends. How many times is Springer going to get injured this year?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:57
Maybe, I know Carrasco has a goo contract, but I think it would take more to get Springer

Will C. Gomez have any kind of bounce back this year? Can Hosmer repeat or even improve?
Paul Swydan
9:59
I think Gomez will bounce back, yes. Not sure Hosmer will improve, but I'll ride with him as having a similar/same season.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:59
I am looking at Gomez to improve and expect zero gains from Hosmer
Paul Swydan
10:00
And YOU should always expect ZERO gains from us. Because we're incorrigible.
10:01
Which is to say, we'll be back at the same time next week. Thanks for hanging out everybody!
Jeff Zimmerman

Bye everyone
