How long do you think J Reyes will be out? Why is MLB taking so long to decide on the length of his suspension?
Paul Swydan
9:30
MLB is waiting on Reyes' court situation to play out. That should hopefully be resolved next week.
9:31
No matter the result of the case, I'd be surprised if Jose Reyes ever put on a Rockies uniform again. He never should have in the first place. The Rockies are getting what they deserve for not trading him when they had the chance, to be quite frank.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:31
Reyes is going to court and it will need to play out. If he is guilty, there is a good chance he could deported.

Dodgers are a lock to win ninety games? Without of course any major long-term injuries
Paul Swydan
9:32
They're not a lock exactly because of the injury issue. Ethier is already out for an extended period, as is Brett Anderson.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:32
60% chance on 90 or more wins
Paul Swydan
9:33
I'll take the other 40%. Shorting the Dodgers this year.

Expectations for Tyler White in an OBP league?
Paul Swydan
9:33
Expectations for the guy who had a .412 BABIP in Triple-A last year? Not high, I can tell you that. Hope I'm wrong.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:34
I like White quite a bit, but I am not sure how the 1B situation will play out. I think the Astros are going to try to build White's value and then trade him off at some point
LudeBurger
9:34
who's your top pick in as bizarro league?
Paul Swydan
9:35
Bizarro Kramer. I just didn't care for Bizarro Jerry and Bizarro George.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:35
Bartolo Colon
Peter, Paul and Barry

Are you on the optimistic or pessimistic side for the projections of Korean Babe Ruth (Park)?
Paul Swydan
9:35
Optimistic!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:36
I am on the pessimistic side, not a ton, but I think he will underperform projections
Draft in 30
9:36
quick thoughts on J Bradley Jr. Mixed league 12 teams, points. Don't need him as a starter but feel he could turn the corner into something pretty good this year
Paul Swydan
9:37
I am cautiously optimistic, but definitely draft him as a backup so he won't burn you.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:37
I am not that high. I think other OFers are better to take a chance on.
Paul
9:37
I'm 100% set on trading Jose Fernandez sometime this season. Do I trade him now, or hope for a dominant start to the season first?
Paul Swydan
9:38
I'd wait for a dominant start to the season.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:38
yea, wait for the start
Peter, Paul and Barry
9:39
Jeff, any hope for Grandal coming back and continuing to break out this year? I have Mesoraco right now in my OBP league but I know a healthy Grandal could be a monster and he's sitting on the waiver. Little concerned about that shoulder.
Paul Swydan
9:39
Jeff?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:41
Do you have DL slots, take the chance. The shoulder is an issue and he will start the season on the DL. Details are few with the Dodgers has they have a ton of injuries to go over in the manager briefing. I would take the chance, but have a backup in mind

I have both Bryant and Arenado in an OBP dynasty. Trade one for Sano?
Paul Swydan
9:42
Yeah, Arenado. He had a lower OBP last year than Cameron Maybin.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:42
Sano and pieces. You need to be looking for 2nd and 3rd round talent
Mick Eh Lobe
9:42
Do you guys buy Correa as a first rounder? Would you trade him for a nice prize if you had Trevor Story on your bench or do you really think Correa will deliver?
Paul Swydan
9:42
I'd hang onto Correa. I think he fits as a first rounder, but I would rather have him in the 2nd or 3rd.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:43
I think Correa is a 2nd rounder, but his upside is a first rounder. Story has the upside of maybe a 5th rounder
The Inbetweener
9:44
Which Ross brother has a greater WAR over the next 3 years? Over their careers?
Paul Swydan
9:44
I'll say Tyson for both. But I like Joe.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:45
Tyson, I would like to see Tyson on a team with a good defense.
Paul Swydan
9:45
Yeah. Or good hitters.
Jonesing for Pitching
9:45
Is Story Rutledge 2.0?
Paul Swydan
9:45
He definitely could be, but we'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say he's better than that.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:46
Maybe, but he has a nice upside. Let me look up some Story prospect comps

Feels like Ozuna will either bust out in a big way or justhe bust. Which side would you guess?
