Hi everybody!
Also Paul

Paul - I just swapped Odorizzi for Puig (same $ values). I have pitching depth, but Odorizzi was cheap and prime keeper material. Tell me that was (at least a little) smart?
Paul Swydan
9:03
I like it. I like Odorizzi, but I'm not in love with him.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:04
Good move. Puig could be a top 12 talent, not Odorizzi
Spyro

6x6 Keeper League (OBP replaces average+BB)....we get to keep 4. Who do you leave out in this list: Altuve, Machado, Sale, Fernandez, Springer?
Paul Swydan
9:05
Gotta be Springer.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:05
Fernandez or Springer, leaning Springer.
Paul Swydan
9:06
Unless you are worried about Fernandez, I guess. But Springer has the same injury concerns.
Matt
9:06
Adam Conley or Jared Eickoff (sp?) - Who's is more likely to have a breakout? Who's long term benefit is higher? More likely?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:06
I like Eickoff more.
Paul Swydan
9:06
I'll say Eickhoff, because I think he'll get more run.
Matt
9:07
Duda at $2 or C Santana at $4? Who do I drop. Both salaries are fully recoverable, and they're bench depth. OBP/TB instead of AVG/HR
Paul Swydan
9:07
Tough one! I think Duda.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:08
They are fairly equal IMO. If OBP is needed, Santana. If power, Duda.
Paul Swydan
9:08
The OBP makes me want Santana more, especially since you're not getting penalized for his crappy average.

Am I wrong for being excited about valencia?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:09
You can sort of e excited as long as you remember it is Valencia.
Paul Swydan
9:09
It's never wrong to be excited about baseball. Having said that, I wouldn't expect too much from Valencia. Unless you're talking about the oranges.
Daniel
9:09
Do the Dodgers Extend J Turner? Yrs/AAV? Seems like the almost have to due to the lack of available 3b this coming off season
Paul Swydan
9:09
I don't know that I'd call it at the top of their list of concerns, but I certainly like Turner.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:10
I think they can find someone better like a converted SS.
Big hurt
9:11
I just traded Adam jones a rod and latos for Kyle segar in an 18 tm 25 keeper dynasty. Think I gave up too much? Already had betts and buxton for cf and no 3b so it was a positional need. Thx
Paul Swydan
9:11
I mean you basically traded Adam Jones for Seager, which I think is fine and perfectly defensible.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:12
I would have done it.
daneyko
9:12
with a strong ST, Juan Nicasio should be a starter. What number to expect ?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:12
My view for tonight's chat BTW:
Paul Swydan
9:13
No, I've seen that movie. I'd leave Nicasio in the bullpen.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:13
Agree with Paul, Nicasio should not be starting

Anthony Rendon... fantasy draft bargain with big upside or injury prone and still overrated from a 2014 he can't repeat?
Paul Swydan
9:14
Yes.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:14
Both
Paul Swydan
9:16
Sorry, trying to insert my own picture and I can't do it. My view is less cool than Jeff's, let's just say.

You guys worried about Samardjia? Seems the struggles last year have continued into spring training. Any chance he is just working on certain pitches, and that's why he is struggling this spring?
Paul Swydan
9:17
No, I think he'll do fine in San Francisco.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:17
I think he is fine and IIRC, his velo is up. Checking now
Cason Jolette
9:17
Do you think Franco made any real adjustments as Fagerstrom implied or is all just noise? Is there a chance he could become an Encarnacion type of hitter?
