So who plays SS for the Rockies while the Reyes situation plays out? And is that person fantasy-relevant?
Paul Swydan
9:53
Well, it'll either be Trevor Story or Daniel Descalso. One of them would be fantasy relevant, and one....wouldn't.

What Paul said
Shirtless Bartolo Colon
9:53
When I was Sandoval's age, I only weighed 230 ;)
Paul Swydan
9:53
Good note, Shirtless Bartolo!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:54
You never weight 230 lbs since you were 16
Paul Swydan
9:54
Also, let me take this brief moment to remind you to listen to the Doing It For Bartolo podcast on Hardball Times. I believe tomorrow's is with Tom Verducci. Good stuff!
Anthony

I've got Arrieta and Rodon as keepers, $21 total in a $260 auction. What type of pitcher should I be targeting next?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:55
Another top 20 ace, teams need to aim for 2 or they may struggle with pitching.
Paul Swydan
9:56
One who's been more stable.
Jack

Pick one please to pair with Betts and Soler in a keeper league, thanks
Jeff Zimmerman

Trout?
Paul Swydan
9:58
Yeah I'm not sure I understand this question.
Brock

Thoughts on EE/Bats potentially replacing Ortiz as The Redsox DH?
Paul Swydan
9:59
I doubt that one of those things will happen.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:59
I think the Red Sox may fill from within after this season with someone like Sandoval

11 team, 6 keeper league with $280 cap, trying to decide between Eaton at $13 and Stroman at $6. Who you taking?
Paul Swydan
10:01
Stroman
Jeff Zimmerman
10:01
I would take Stroman at that price

20 team 5 x 5 - we keep 9 guys - I'm keeping Martin 7, Asdrubel 1, CarGo 21, Conforto 1, Ziegler 2, Richards 4 and Kendricks 1. Need 2 of the following: Upton 39, Braun 38, Valencia 1, Kearns 4, Kershaw 47 and Street 18 - can probably re-buy the expensive pitchers for close to their salaries. With inflation, top hitters go 45+.
Paul Swydan
10:02
I'd say Upton and Kershaw. Peace of mind is worth it with Kershaw, even if the cost would be the same. Also, Ziegler is terrible, FYI.
Jeff Zimmerman
10:02
Kershaw only or no one

Assuming Gallardo and Fowler deals go through, O's will have given out more money this offseason (total deal value) than any other team. $284.8MM. The O's. Crazy.
Paul Swydan

I mean, they're still owned by a billionaire, are they not?
Jeff Zimmerman
10:04
The Davis deal was just dumb. I love how teams bid up themselves
Paul Swydan
10:04
We are not billionaires though, so we need to figure out some ways to make some more money. Thanks for hanging out with us, and we'll talk again next week!
