I like him better than most people. I could still him miss a couple weeks to mess with his service time.

12 team, 15 keeper dynasty. h2h standard scoring. Upcoming minor league draft. My team is young and ready to compete by this season or next. I have 2nd overall pick. I need SP and OF. I don't mind drafting best available either. Would you please rank these available players based off of this? Rodgers Reyes benintendi brinson snell Bergman
Jeff Zimmerman
9:20
Rodgers, Beni, Bergman, Brinson, Snell, Reyes.
Paul Swydan
9:22
That's tough, those guys are all grouped pretty close together. As a result of that, I would go with the ones who are going to graduate first. Reyes or Brinson seems like.

I have tough choices in keeping Cueto and Wainwright. They have mid range prices ($16 and $14) when the top pitchers go for $35-42. What do you think I should do?
Paul Swydan
9:23
If you're in it to win it this year, keep both. If you're rebuilding, I would dump or trade Wainwright and just keep Cueto.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:23
I would keep them if there are no other choices. Both could be top 10 at the end of the year.
Elliott

____% Byron Buxton is a stud this year?
Paul Swydan
9:24
30? I want to believe, but I'm not hopeful.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:24
10%
Angel Pagan
9:25
I am the sixth best outfielder on the Giants. I don't show up to Fanfest ever, I don't attend the World Series parade because I didn't play, yet I'm the starting LF! Who do I have scandalous pictures of?
Paul Swydan
9:25
Wow, someone doesn't like Angel Pagan.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:26
Wow, someone cares too much about Pagan.

Hi Paul, do you know if the park factors are being updated, and if so, when? Thanks!
Paul Swydan
9:26
We were just talking about this on Slack today. It should be updated soon.
Murdoc

Who you got for your bracket champion?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:27
They are all pretty close to the '14 numbers
Paul Swydan
9:27
Me, because I'm not filling one out. Also, Holy Cross. Go Crusaders!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:27
I have KU, using Pomeroy's numbers

Do home/away split projections exist anywhere?
Paul Swydan
9:28
Yeah, we have them on our leaderboards. Just look at the "split" drop down menu in the middle of the screen.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:28
Isn't it on the split's page?

What do you think of AL-only auction strategy where you get both Miller and Betances for K's alone? Likely better numbers than most $20 starters, though obviously fewer innings
Paul Swydan
9:30
So, I guess it would depend on your categories. I love it if holds are a category, but in a traditional 5x5...I don't know, you're limiting the damage they can do. But I don't hate it.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:30
They are great options. Their overall K's will be better than some starters.
Lance Mannion

Your thoughts on whether some players perform better for small market teams and or can't handle the pressure of a big market team or is it a myth
Paul Swydan
9:32
I doubt there is a way to separate this out in any large sample. But I don't buy it either way.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:33
None to that idea. Now I do think some player's party a little too much in some towns and their production suffers.

12 team 5x5 roto league keep 3. I am keeping Aj Pollack (round 11) and Wade Davis (14). Who is my third keeper??? Danny Salazar (15) or Yu Darvish (18)
Jeff Zimmerman
9:34
Salazar, Darvish is not back yet.
Paul Swydan
9:34
I think there are equal risks, but I like the risk with Darvish (is he healthy?) over Salazar (is he legit?), and Darvish comes "cheaper," so I'll take him.
more. disagreements.

Bigger upside in '15-'16 Nola or Berrios?
Paul Swydan
9:35
Well, 2015 is over, but I'll say Berrios.
I think Nola is good, but in a #2-#3 kind of way. Berrios could be better than that if it all breaks right for him.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:35
Berrios by a huge margain

What's your stance on rostering old guys? I've never been hugely fond of it, but guys like ARod and Mauer were sitting floating around in my auction for peanuts and I couldn't help myself. Any reason for optimism?
Paul Swydan
9:37
When you get deep into the auction, I'm looking for bargains. Often it comes in the form of old guys. Having said that, I would have stayed away from Mauer. I'm cool with A-Rod though.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:37
Yes with Arod, no with Mauer. Old guys, especially in redraft are huge bargains IMO. People are too afraid to miss on the next Correa
Tommy
9:37
How worried should we be about Lance McCullers right now?
