Jonesing for Pitching
1:14
I am looking to trade Adam Jones for pitching in my 6x5 mixed 16-team keeper (OBP is the extra category). What caliber of pitcher can I reasonably target? Is Strasburg asking too much? Would Keuchel be too little of a return?
Paul Sporer
1:14
Honestly, it depends how he's valued by the owners of those SPs. There are some fantasy managers who would move such a stud, but there are others who are sour on Jones and might only give like a Tyson Ross (who is still a v good SP)

Are you believing in Cody Anderson now with the increased velocity and the comps to Matt Harvey?
Paul Sporer
1:16
V good piece by Jeff. Comps can mislead and lead to overrating, but I completely understand where it's coming from. More than the flashiness of the Harvey comp, we just need to be aware of the big velo jump bc that could really send Anderson skyward. I think we're getting to a point where should eye anyone CLE is grooming in the minors or picks up bc Mickey Callaway and company are churning out some real studs

Do you think Berrios is a big leaguer by end of April? Immediate mixed lg value?
Paul Sporer
1:16
I can see it, but they were cautious last year so maybe more of an early-May. I think he's an instant mixed leaguer upon arrival. Big Berrios fan

Expectations for Shane Greene this season? (For the record, I'm referring to real life, not your dynasty team in MLB the Show.)
Paul Sporer
1:17
Since he can feel his hand again, I've got some real expectations. I'm back on the train I was driving last year with Greene. He is a skilled SP and now healthy, he can be a solid mid-rotation option

Paul, you have won me from Eno. I look forward to this grand relationship between us.
Paul Sporer
1:18
You can have us both! We're going to be doing back-to-back chats on Thursdays!!

You cool with a 5x5 pitching staff of Price, Archer, Pineda, Buchholz, DeSclafani, Nola, Eickhoff + Chapman, Davis, McGee, & Miller?
Paul Sporer
1:18
Definitely. 2 studs, elite closers, and worthwhile gambles in your mid-rotation.

Any thoughts on Adam Ottavino as a sleeper for saves this season? Beyond?
Paul Sporer
1:19
Nah, I'm off him for '16. I think McGee holds it all year. I just don't miss with guys in their TJ return season, espec RPs

Welcome to LudeBurger, home of the LudeBurger. May I take your order?
Alex in Austin

Corbin or Shelby?
Paul Sporer
1:19
Shelby, barely. Really like both and have paired them on a couple teams.
Alex in Austin

Are you worried about Detroit's defense? Castellanos grades out poorly somehow; the OF of Upton, gose/maybin, JD; Miggy, Kinsler...
Paul Sporer
1:19
It's not great, but it's better than some of those years where it was really poor

Deep 20 teamer. Need help deciding between Cody Anderson and Shane Greene. Love the mph increase on Cody's fastball and developing a spike curve, but Shane Greene is looking good again. He was my boy last year before he burned me.
Paul Sporer
1:20
I'm leaning Greene, but it's a legit coinflip so take your preference

Someone in my league dropped Miller for Betances. I have Rosenthal, Perkins, Doolittle. Worth dropping Duda or Doolittle for Miller?
Paul Sporer
1:21
I really like Doolittle this year if healthy. I imagine Duda is a reserve bc you aren't dropping your starting 1B for a reliever. I can do that move if it's a shallow enough lg since Miller says he's gonna pitch through

I'm starting to worry about my pick of Aroldis in a dynasty league. What are the chances he doesn't get the closer's role back this year? What are the chances he isn't a top-shelf closer in coming years?
Paul Sporer
1:21
I think he will be completely fine. I don't have any reservations about him getting the role back
Zac
1:21
My bold prediction is that Joey Votto is going to have a .500 OBP
Paul Sporer
1:21
Too low. .750!

I spent 10% of my auction budget in an AL only on Byung Ho Park. How likely am I to regret this?
Paul Sporer
1:22
I'm buying the hype!

Any concern over Rich Hill's walk-happy spring?
Paul Sporer
1:23
Yes bc it's exactly the kinda crappiness that limited him to 153 MLB innings in seven years in the first place. Now, OAK is different than the Cactus League, but a ballpark alone doesn't give you control. Plus he's old.
At least he didn't really cost anything in most drafts.
BBK

Coghlan or Piscotty? No RBI/R in this league
Paul Sporer
1:23
Piscotty, but I'm a Coghlan guy. Piscotty's ceiling is just higher
OnSight

Rasiel Iglesias O/U top 30 SP?
Paul Sporer
1:24
Under unfortunately. Just won't have the workload. Love him but he's really more of a 2017 breakout. We (as a fantasy baseball community) are probably a year early
Zorak
1:24
A lot of people are justifiably "meh" about Joe Panik, but does his calculus change in a h2h points league? His dependable production is really attractive to me in that format, even if he's one of the weaker hitters in my line-up overall.
Paul Sporer
1:25
Yeah I'm not meh on him. I really like him as a late-2B. There are so many similar 2B and he's better or as good as many of them yet going much later. I agree that your format enhances him

in a league where Machado (drafted him at 5) is eligible at SS, did I nuke a big chunk of his value by taking C-Seager later?
