No bc he's a viable #5 pick with only 3B. And it's not like 3B is super-deep.

Which cheaper AL shortstop do you like best: Castro, Semien, B. Miller?
Paul Sporer
1:26
You picked three I really like late, but you put em in order. Gimme Starlin.
Barry

Think Farquar or Knebel worth a pickup?
Paul Sporer
1:26
Really depends on league type

Rank for this year: Alex Wood, Drew Smyly, Julio Teheran and Matt Moore
Paul Sporer
1:27
Teheran, Smyly, Moore, Wood

Vince Velasquez or Kyle Gibson?
Paul Sporer
1:27
Velasquez. I like Gibby, too, but take VV's upside now and find a Gibson-like clone or Gibson himself on the wire later this year when VV's innings are winding down

Precursor: It was taco Thursday at work. I'm pretty excited to get the exit velocity reading on my Kakie Bryan
Paul Sporer
1:27
I hate you.

When is Bauer back in CLE rotation?
Paul Sporer
1:28
NEVER!!! Kidding. When Skinny Joe Blanton give up 9 HRs in 5 IP.
Billy

How concerned should I be about Desclafani's oblique?
Paul Sporer
1:28
At least somewhat. Obliques are bitches. But it's kinda built into the low price already so I'd still gamble.
Chase Headley
1:28
why only 11 HR with Yankee Stadium as ballpark ? 20+ HR in 2016 ?
Paul Sporer
1:28
Maybe just not so good?
Jonesing for Pitching
1:28
Over/under 100 games played for Reyes this season?
Paul Sporer
1:29
Ugh. Under. Still getting suspended (as he should) and he's not exactly a favorite in Colorado

This chat back to back with Eno chat has made my day: I am home sick from work :)

This is my first year playing The Show. I know you're a fan--any tips (especially for hitting)? Diamond Dynasty strategies? Thanks dawg.
Paul Sporer

I use zone hitting with plate coverage indicator and it REALLY improved my hitting after just using buttons. Did you do a pre-order to get the bonuses? That really helps you get a base team that isn't so bad. I've got a couple golds and plenty of silvers on my team. If you didn't pre-order, maybe drop $20 on some stubs to get one of those 20 packs with 3 silvers. If you're gonna play a lot, it's a worthy investment. Some ppl just buy a million packs, but I like to earn stuff so I keep the investment pretty low. I bought the digital deluxe pre-order and threw a $20 spot for more stubs. I'm gonna build my team up from there

Do you think Osuna lasts the season as a closer?
Paul Sporer
1:31
I do. He's a beast.
Steph Curry
1:31
What are your thoughts on Puig for this year? Think he will be productive?
Paul Sporer
1:32
Big fan of his. Our perceptions of players change SO rapidly and a lot of times there is no skills change to back that shift. He is still a super-skilled player. Health is a concern, but it is for everybody. You're only healthy til you're not, which sounds trite, but it's true. Who were the rock-solid never-get-hurt bets last years? Adam Jones and Hunter Pence.

Could you please rank these three-- Gardner, Fowler, Khris Davis... will they all be top 45 OFs?
Paul Sporer
1:32
Fowler, Gardner, Davis and they're really close. In that 40-55 range which is pretty tight
Big hurt

What're your thoughts on Robbie Ray this season? #s appear to be decent at a glance but he gets no love. Thx
Paul Sporer
1:33
He's OK. Gave up a lot of hard contact last yr and didn't get punished for it. If that happens again, he's a low-4.00s ERA kinda guy.

Roughned Odor lead all 2B in HR/SLG?
Paul Sporer
1:33
No.
The Inbetweener
1:33
Would you platoon Adam Lind and CJ Cron for cheap at 1B all year or try and pay for someone like Duda or Belt while giving up a pitcher of similar dollar value (Shields, in my case)
Paul Sporer
1:33
I'm totally cool with a platoon if you're committed to it!
Jody Reed
1:34
Rubby or Greene?
Paul Sporer
1:34
Greene
Bart

Better season, Eickhoff or Conley?
Paul Sporer
1:34
Conley
Mark

6x6, 5 keepers - should I draft Matt Carp if he falls to me or reach for Odor? Pick 72
