I'll let Jeff handle this one.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:39
I was worried before the injury. He has all the signs of injury. Throws hard, throws a ton of breaking balls, was injured last season, and has not established himself.

im a rebuilding squad with gallo, crawford, and turner in the minors. with my first prospect pick, should i go after a guy like Aj Reed who will bring me impact right away, or a higher ceiling guy like Brinson, Benetendi, Rodgers, Kepler.
Paul Swydan
9:40
I don't know that those guys have a higher ceiling than Reed. I would probably go with him.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:41
Agree with Paul, Reed is even with them and closer to the bigs.

do you think Starlin Castro is a good fit with the Yankees ? Where do you see him in the offensive lineup ?
Paul Swydan
9:42
Yeah definitely, that was a nice pickup for the Yankees. Don't know about batting order. I haven't paid that much attention to spring training, because I find it draining. I'll pay more attention in the last couple of weeks of March.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:42
Castro is fine with the Yankees and they can afford the depth. I think he will be the 9th hitter, but not sure at all.
Kenneth Lam

If the two of you were in Mark Shapiro and Ross Atkins' shoes, will the two of you try to resign José Bautista and Edwin Encarnación even though Joey Bats' contract demand is rumoured to be a 5 years for $150 million and EE have stated that he wanted to finish his career as a Blue Jay?
Paul Swydan
9:43
I would certainly be trying to, yes. I don't think either should be allowed to walk without making a serious run at them.

12tm 5x5 roto dynasty. I give Yu and Hanley for Choo and ARussell. Only SS on roster is JCraw right now. Need more than Choo or give less than Hanley? Thanks.
Paul Swydan
9:44
I mean, it's probably fine as is, but if you can do better than Choo, do it.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:44
No on that Bats contract, his demands are insane right now. I would consider EE though. The Jays could end up with 2DH's soon
9:45
It all depends on how much the other guy loves Russell in dyansty

The NESN guys on the ST broadcast were thinking hitting Bogaerts 4th was a good idea. Come regualr season that is kind of nuts, no?
Paul Swydan
9:46
It's not nuts, but unless they're that convinced that Xander is growing into his power right now, I would hit him third and Ortiz fourth.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:46
Batting orders are the most overrated comments. It doesn't matter one bit
Brian
9:46
Would you trade JP Crawdord for Alex Reyes, Cardinals pitcher! For ever keeper
Paul Swydan
9:46
Nope, keep Crawford.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:46
No
Brian
9:47
Pick a side, OBP and total bases keeper league, standard pitching stats. I have no chance. I get Severino and Thor, he gets Sano. Sano is my second best keeper. Would you do it?
Paul Swydan
9:47
No, keep Sano.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:47
Keep the hitter
Gary
9:48
Lots of Giolito hype. Would you rather have him than Syndergaard? Are they comparable?
Paul Swydan
9:48
I would rather have Syndergaard. One, Syndergaard is already in the majors, and two, he hasn't had Tommy John surgery yet.
As to their comparability, sure, they're both young, hard throwing right-handed pitchers.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:48
They could be the same. Tough to decide between the two
Fantasy Guru
9:49
Really stuck on my Keeper decisions for this year, pick 4 of the following, their draft penalty for keeping is in (); Arrieta(3), Syndergaard(19), JoFer(15), Machado(9), Trout(4), EE(3), Sano(25), Betts(7)...HELP!
Paul Swydan
9:50
Trout, Betts, Machado, Sano.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:50
Trout, Macado, Betts and Thor.
Paul Swydan
9:50
If you realllllly want the pitcher, take Jose Fernandez over Betts.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:51
Sano at 25 is good also. Maybe 4 hitters.
Jess
9:51
I'm a 40 year old man with a crush on 20 Cristian Arroyo. 1. Am I going to hell? 2. Is the crush worth it?
Paul Swydan
9:51
I don't see why you'd be going to hell for liking a baseball player.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:52
No and No
Hanna
9:52
Where can I find pitch sequences for specific abs?
Paul Swydan
9:52
Do we not have this?
9:53
Hmm, I guess we don't. It should be in PITCHf/x I thought, though. Jeff?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:53
Brooks baseball. Goto Pitchf/x tool and find the pitcher in at the time. Then select detailed sequence.... looking up example
