Miggy for Park/Hanley..fair deal?
Paul Sporer
2:53
man, that's tough. I still prefer Miggy

What are you doing with Jose Reyes in drafts in shallower leagues? How much of the season do you think he'll miss?
Paul Sporer
2:54
I'm just laying off bc I have SS I like late and we still don't know what kinda suspension he's gonna get
Tommy
2:54
What do you project for Marcell Ozuna this year?
Paul Sporer
2:54
25/.270
Likey Likey?
2:54
Eovaldi or Eickhoff? Eovaldi more talent, Eickhoff less talented division
Paul Sporer
2:54
Eovaldi. I hear you on Eick's division, but he's on one of the crap tms
Drew

Are you on board the Taijuan hype train?
Paul Sporer
2:54
Yes. I was last year, too, so I'm not jumping off!
Greg
2:54
Would you rather have Osuna or the eventual winner of the Gregerson/Giles battle?
Paul Sporer
2:55
Giles over Osuna, but Osuna over Gregerson
Danny

I've heard a lot of positive buzz on Joe Panik in some circles. You like him?
Paul Sporer
2:55
I do. I know some hate this term but he is a "gamer". I basically use that to mean the total pkg is better than that individual scouting grades of his game

Delino Deshields expectations this year?
Paul Sporer
2:56
.265/9/35
Kris

Are you feeling an Alex Wood resurgence as much as Eno?
Paul Sporer
2:56
No, I'm not a Wood guy. Those mechanics are vomit-inducing.
Hank
2:56
I tried to punt saves and ended up with Osuna/Strickland/Betances/Kela. Did I fail at punting saves?
Paul Sporer
2:57
LOL well it looked like you REALLY did last night when we assumed Miller was toast for a while, but he's gonna pitch through it so I think you still punted even though you got Osuna. You can prob flip Osuna for something if you wanna remain committed to no saves!

Are you coming to the NYC fangraphs meet?
Paul Sporer

Si.

What's the best way to get into a gig writing about baseball?
Paul Sporer
2:58
Ask sites if they're hiring. Start your own blog to get some reps and just write, write, write. Some will say NEVER write for free, but sometimes you gotta at the start. if i'm gonna write for free, I'd rather do it on my terms at a personal blog that way you're not beholden to deadlines and such.
2:59
Find a niche and specialize. I did the SP Guide on a msg board for a while and then Paulsporer.com and then just asked BP if they needed anyone. that's how I got started on my full-time baseball path. Then moved over here after BP

Aaron Hicks a nice lottery pick? Could he be Carlos Gomez circa 2012?
Jay
2:59
Chen a top 30 SP now that he's in the weakest hitting division?
Paul Sporer
2:59
Yes, or at least damn close. i think I technically have him 34
Joey

Luis Severino or Masahiro Tanaka?
Paul Sporer
3:00
Much tougher after hearing Stephania Bell's concerns over Tanaka when I talked to her in NYC, but I'm still going with him. Severino has plenty to work out still and IP will be light
Ken
3:00
Tanaka, an acceptable 12 team SP3? Better or worse?
Paul Sporer
3:00
Yeah it's OK, but see above: I do have some concern.
Jeet

Would you trade away Rodon or McCullers in a dynasty for a more 2016 ready arm or do they have ace like potential?
Paul Sporer
3:01
They do both have outstanding upside, but I'm always trying to compete in current yr so if someone will give you Richards, Wacha, or Waino or something like that, then I'd entertain moving em
Don The Magic Juan

Heaney a top 15 AL SP this year?
Paul Sporer
3:01
Not quite that high. Just don't see the K upside for that.
Tyler

Waited and ended up with Ben Paulsen in a 16 tm H2H Points. With the Shaw news should I scoop him and swap Paulsen out?
Paul Sporer
3:01
Stick with paulsen, but I'm OK adding Shaw for someone else

Does giving up an oppo bomb to Jon Lester perfectly encapsulate the state of Rockies pitching?
